Apple has today released a new version of the 15.5 firmware that currently powers its Studio Display, the monitor that has been around for a little while now but continues to be plagued with problems.
The new version carries the build number 19F80, replacing the 19F77 version that was previously available.
We’ve heard of multiple issues relating to poor webcam performance since the day the Studio Display first went on sale, and it isn’t yet known whether this update helps Improve matters there.
This time around though, this latest update – as per Apple’s support document – is here to fix the speaker issues that some have reported of late, with some saying that their speakers either cut out, play distorted audio, or sometimes play audio at the incorrect speed.
This new software update is now available for get by the Mac that it is connected to. Those with a Studio Display should head to System Preferences > Software Update to install the firmware on their monitor.
Apple released the Studio Display alongside the Mac Studio earlier this year and it has not been well received, although few issues have been identified with the monitor’s display. All problems are instead related to the speakers and webcam accessories that are built into it.

Thu, 04 Aug 2022 06:38:00 -0500en-UStext/htmlhttps://www.redmondpie.com/apple-issues-new-studio-display-firmware-update-with-audio-fixes/Killexams : Studio Display speaker problems acknowledged by Apple; not a hardware issue
A growing number of people have been reporting Studio Display speaker problems, and the good news is that it’s not a hardware problem. The bad news is that there’s no fix available as yet.
Apple has acknowledged the issue, and while the company doesn’t yet have a solution, the fact that it has been identified as a software issue suggests that a future update will resolve it …
Studio Display speaker problems
Most users experiencing the problem say that audio plays for a time, then cuts out. Some of them report “choppy” audio before it cuts out.
“For the last month or so, the speakers on my Studio Display have been broken. Whenever I start playing music (or any other audio), it works for a few seconds and then cuts out.”
“Audio gets choppy and eventually just cuts out completely. Rebooting the Mac doesn’t help. You literally have to power cycle the entire Studio Display(s). Happens about every 5-6 weeks for me it seems.”
“The audio on my Studio Display fails intermittently. The only way I can get it to work again is to unplug the display overnight. That resets the display and resolves the problem temporarily. Until the next time.”
Switching between MacBook speakers and Studio Display speakers confirms that the issue is with the display, as affected users say it only happens when playing through the monitor speakers.
After hours with Apple support and trying all kind of things to isolate the issue, it occurred to me that we did EVERYTHING except restart/reboot the display itself. because it has no power button and no software control to restart it, the only way to do it is to unplug it from the power source, wait at least 1 full minute and plug it back in. Of course it immediately solved all the issues.
We spent so long asking for a basic 5K Retina display but never thought to specify that it should have a power button and a decent camera.
There doesn’t yet appear to be a public-facing Apple support document for the issue, but MacRumors obtained a memo to authorized service providers which notes the problem and advises a temporary fix of disconnecting the monitor from power and other devices for ten seconds, then powering-up again. Users suggest that the fix works for anything from days to weeks.
Third issue to hit Apple’s existing monitor
It’s the third issue to hit the pricey display. The first was widespread complaints about the poor quality of the webcam. Joanna Stern described it as like an old Blackberry.
Apple’s camera consistently produced grainy and washed-out images. There was so much missing detail in some of the shots that it reminded me of the camera on my old BlackBerry. On the plus side: No one could see my frizzy hair.
For confirmation, I again brought in extra eyes. I recorded footage from webcams on the Studio Display (12 megapixel), an iPhone 11 Pro (12 megapixel), a 14-inch MacBook Pro (2 megapixel) and the 5K LG monitor (2 megapixel). I shared frames with a group of colleagues, without saying which came from which. The group was unanimous, ranking the Apple Studio Display’s webcam dead last. Naturally, the iPhone came in first.

Apple has finally produced a solution for the speaker problems facing owners of the very expensive Studio Display monitor.
Since its launch back in March, the Studio Display has suffered with audio problems ranging from the sound being distorted or playing too quickly, to simply cutting out completely. As MacRumors reports, Apple confirmed the problem by way of a memo to its authorized service providers a few days ago, which also stated it's a software problem unrelated to the hardware.
Sure enough, a firmware update has now been released which "resolves an audio issue with Studio Display," according to the release notes. The firmware update is still classed as version 15.5, just like the one released two months ago, but this latest release uses the build number 19F80.
The latest firmware can be installed on a Studio Display by connecting it to a Mac and then navigating to Apple Menu > System Preferences > Software Update. If the firmware is available to you, click "Update Now" and it will start downloading. Once complete, click "Restart" in the notification that appears and the installation process will begin. If everything goes to plan, all those sound problems should be a thing of the past.

Apple's iPhone 14 is suffering from manufacturing issues, according to a new report. Specifically, the rear lenses built by Genius are said to be experiencing "coating crack," with another provider picking up the slack.
Writing to Twitter, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that his "latest survey indicates one of Genius's iPhone 14 rear lenses likely suffered from coating-crack quality issues." As a result, around 10 million lens orders have now been switched away from Genius with Largan picking up the slack.
While the change in provider is surely a move that Apple would have preferred to avoid, it isn't thought that the switch will impact iPhone 14 availability come launch time. Kuo goes on to say that the "impact on iPhone 14 shipments can almost be ignored because Largan can fill the supply gap well."
Apple is expected to release its new wave of iPhones in or around September time, the same period when it will also announce the new Apple Watch Series 8 hardware. That's expected to be joined by a new rugged Apple Watch, a device that Bloomberg's Mark Gurman is calling Apple Watch Pro.
As for iPhone 14, four new handsets are set to go on sale with 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models launching alongside 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max devices. Only those with the Pro designation are expected to benefit from new 48-megapixel cameras as well as an updated chip — iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are thought to use the current A15 Bionic, while the Pro variants should use new A16 silicon if rumors are to be believed. That alone should make those the best iPhones for gamers thanks to increased horsepower and graphical prowess.
While the latest camera news could be a supply concern, Kuo's bullish outlook is promising. However, Apple does tend to struggle to keep new iPhones in stock at launch time, something that could be worsened by ongoing worldwide semiconductor shortages. Demand could yet be tempered by the current economic situation around the glove, however.

Today, Apple is seen as one of the most successful and powerful brands in the world of technology. When you go out in public, you’ll see way more people using an iPhone versus the latest flagship Android device. Similarly, you’re also more likely to see people using iPads over other tablets, or working on a MacBook in a Starbucks.
But believe it or not, Apple’s success did not come without some failures and mishaps along the way. It’s like any good business — for every up, there’s always a down. We’re going to take a look at some of Apple’s biggest mistakes, and how the company fixed them.
The departure of Steve Jobs
Apple was founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in 1976 to sell Woz’s Apple I personal computer. In 1977, Apple Computer, Inc. was formalized as a company and the Apple II became a hit. By 1980, Apple became a public company and was an instant financial success. However, by 1985, problems began to arise due to high production costs and power struggles among top executives. This eventually caused Wozniak to take a step back from Apple, and Jobs eventually resigned after basically being forced out of his own company. After his sudden leave, he started another computer company called NeXT.
Though Apple held its own for a little after the departure of Jobs, things were quickly spiraling into disaster. By the mid-1990s, a lot of Apple’s products were overpriced, and many did not take off as expected. These failed products cost the company almost a billion dollars a year.
Apple bought NeXT in 1996 for $427 million, which brought Jobs back into the fold by 1997. If it were not for this deal, Apple likely would not exist today. Since it purchased NeXT, it incorporated much of NeXT’s technology, which eventually made its way into Apple products. In fact, NeXTSTEP basically became Mac OS X, which continues to evolve to this day.
With Jobs at the helm again, Apple introduced the first iMac and many other new, innovative products with the help of Jony Ive, who was promoted to senior vice principal of industrial design. Some of the biggest successes that came out of the return of Jobs, with the help of Ive, were the iMac, Power Mac G4 Cube, iPod, iPhone, MacBook, and more.
One of Apple's most significant mistakes was letting Jobs go, and if it did not purchase NeXT, there would literally be no Apple today.
Apple Macintosh Portable
These days, Apple makes some of the slimmest, most functional laptops out there. But again, this wasn’t always the case. Apple’s first battery-powered computer was the Apple Macintosh Portable, and, compared to today’s standards, it was anything but "portable."
This clunky monstrosity featured an expensive black-and-white active matrix LCD screen on a hinge, which allowed the screen to cover the keyboard and trackball when not in use. While it was the first portable computer from Apple, it was also designed to deliver high performance, which, of course, meant a high price tag ($6,500 in 1989 money, which is about $12,600 today) and a hefty weight. This thing weighed about 16 pounds! And due to the battery design, it sometimes couldn’t even turn on when plugged in. That’s always a fun problem, right?
Thankfully, Apple has come a long way when it comes to portable computers. Its first real success when it came to a laptop was the PowerBook 100 series, which eventually led to the current-day MacBook that we know and love. The PowerBook 100 notebooks weighed around 5.1 pounds, which is a huge difference from the Macintosh Portable that came before it. Plus, the price range was much more affordable, starting at $2,300 and going up to $4,599, depending on specs.
The PowerBook got a $1 million marketing budget from then-CEO John Sculley, but it paid off. Apple’s PowerBook took 40% of overall laptop sales in the first year, generating over a billion dollars in revenue for Apple at the time. It became the notebook of choice for those who needed a computer while traveling.
We no longer have PowerBooks these days, but we have the best MacBooks instead, which have the PowerBook to thank.
The Newton was Apple’s first foray into the world of personal digital assistants (PDAs) with touch screens. It was also the first Apple device to have handwriting recognition — a headliner feature. However, the standout feature ended up having big problems and was definitely not ready for prime time.
Apple began developing the Newton platform in 1987 and shipped the first Newton device in 1993. Despite five years in development and $100 million invested in the Newton, the handwriting software was barely ready by the time the Newton devices shipped. It often misread characters, which was badly ridiculed by the media. In fact, it was so bad that the handwriting failure was parodied in the “Lisa on Ice” episode of The Simpsons, where “Beat up Martin” ended up being “Eat up Martha.” But it didn’t stop there — the Newton was also mocked by Garry Trudeau in his comic strip, Doonesbury, which compared the device to an expensive toy that serves the same purpose as a cheap notepad. In the comic, “Catching on?” was translated into “Egg Freckles,” which eventually became a symbolic phrase of the Newton’s problems.
Though Newton OS 2.0 improved handwriting recognition, it was not enough to garner strong sales for Apple, though it did make some splashes in certain industries, like healthcare. When a competing PDA, the Palm Pilot, was released, the Newton had even less of the market share. Once Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, the Newton died a year later.
While the Newton was one of Apple’s biggest failures, Apple learned from it and eventually came out with one of the most revolutionary and innovative products of all time: the iPhone. The touch screen that the iPhone provided was ready from the get-go. The processors were a huge leap from what the Newton originally had. All of the technology available by the time the iPhone debuted made it possible for the Newton to live on once again, this time under the guise of the iPhone.
The Newton was a failure, but the best iPhone launched Apple into the incredibly powerful company that it is today.
In 1996, Apple released a little gaming console called the Pippin, which was manufactured by Bandai. It was Apple’s first jump into the console market, and it intended to make the console more than just a platform for games. The Pippin ran a simplified version of the Macintosh operating system, so it was faster and more powerful than other consoles that were available at the time.
However, the reason that the Apple Pippin flopped was due to the high price — it was about $600. Other consoles at the time, like the Nintendo 64, were only around $200. The Pippin also lacked a variety of games, which could be related to that astronomically high price tag back then, which further dug it into the grave.
Even today, a lot of people don’t take Apple seriously as far as gaming is concerned. You won’t be seeing gamers recommending the best Mac over something like a custom-built PC, for example. However, Apple has made a significant impact on the gaming industry in the form of the iPhone and iPad, and even more recently with Apple Arcade.
While cell phone games have been around ever since the “dumb phone” era, they were all very basic time-wasters like Snake. When Apple introduced the App Store in 2008, that was when mobile gaming pretty much changed forever. Developers could create more advanced games, and eventually, we got incredibly popular titles like Angry Birds, Temple Run, Candy Crush Saga, Cut the Rope, and so much more. The best iPhone games would range from free to paid, though a accurate shift has transitioned much of mobile gaming to the much-hated free-to-play, or “freemium,” model. And while a lot of the games would be best enjoyed on an iPhone, the larger screen estate of the iPad came in handy too. Plus, as more ports of games from other consoles arrived on iOS, and Apple added support for third-party controllers, gaming on the iPad just made sense.
To combat the move over to freemium junk, Apple created Apple Arcade. This is a subscription service from Apple that grants subscribers access to a varied collection of premium games that contain no advertisements or in-app purchases.
Though Apple may not have an real gaming console anymore, it created a strong gaming platform that lives on with the iPhone and iPad, and to an extent, the Apple TV. Especially when you throw Apple Arcade into the mix.
MobileMe originally launched in 2000 under a different moniker: iTools, which lasted until 2002. Until 2008, it was known as .Mac and then was MobileMe until 2011, eventually being replaced by what is now known as iCloud.
MobileMe was designed to supply Apple users internet services. As iTools and .Mac, one would get an @mac.com email address, and it was tied to Mac hardware. After the iPhone 3G, it became MobileMe, and services expanded to Mac OS X, iOS, and Windows, with a matching @me.com email address.
However, the 2008 MobileMe launch became one of the most botched launches in Apple history. It launched at the same time as the iPhone 3G, iPhone 2.0 software, and the App Store. MobileMe let users store contacts, documents, calendars, photos and videos, and emails remotely, and access everything on Apple devices (and on Windows through a browser), all for $99 a year. Right on launch though, it experienced intermittent service and email outages, and massive preauthorization charges appeared for those signing up for a free trial.
Jobs was definitely not happy about the MobileMe disaster. In fact, he sent an email out to employees talking about its failure, gathered the MobileMe team in the Apple auditorium, and asked: “Can anyone tell me what MobileMe is supposed to do?” When some of the employees began to answer, Jobs simply snapped back with, “So why the f**k doesn’t it do that?” For the next hour, Jobs apparently berated the team and scolded them for ruining Apple’s reputation. At least, that’s how the legend goes. The head of the MobileMe team was fired and replaced with Eddy Cue.
MobileMe lived on until mid-2012 when Apple shut it down completely. iCloud, the successor to MobileMe, launched in October 2011. While iCloud is not perfect, it’s been a huge improvement over MobileMe. With iCloud, users can sync documents and files, photos and videos, contacts, emails, calendars, notes, reminders, and more across multiple devices. It also works as a great backup method for your iPhone or iPad, and the Find My network helps you locate lost or misplaced items associated with your Apple ID. Though there are occasional outages with iCloud, it has been a much smoother experience than what MobileMe previously offered. Plus, it’s cheaper than the $99 a year for MobileMe, and it’s actually reliable. There are also iCloud+ features at no extra cost.
iPhone 4 and Antennagate
The iPhone 4 was one of the biggest changes to the iPhone yet. It completely altered the design, taking away the curves and going for flat edges with stainless steel bands instead of plastic. It also bumped up the camera specs from a measly 3MP to 5MP and honestly launched an all-new category of mobile photography as we know it.
But the iPhone 4 also had a major flaw that goes back to the design: the stainless steel bands around the edges, which also doubled as the cellular antenna. Because the exterior of the phone was the antenna, the public eventually learned that if you hold the phone a certain way in the left hand, it would cause the cellular signal to either be reduced or drop completely. This was known as the “death grip."
Apple tried to downplay this flaw, but it definitely backfired when Jobs just told everyone, “You’re holding it wrong.” In fact, Apple did everything it could to prevent admission that the hardware was flawed. It even tried to pass it off as a software issue, claiming that a formula used to calculate bars of signal strength was faulty, and it would be fixed in a software update. After many attempts to cover up the real problem, Jobs put together a last-minute press conference and admitted that it was indeed a hardware issue.
Jobs then offered iPhone 4 customers a free bumper case to alleviate the issue — as the case prevents human skin from touching the stainless steel antenna and thus interfering with signal — or a refund for those who already purchased a bumper case. Two years later, Apple settled a class action lawsuit for Antennagate, which allowed anyone who bought an iPhone 4 to pick out a free bumper case or get $15 in cash.
Ever since the iPhone 4 and Antennagate, Apple has made modifications to antenna placement and design to prevent another antenna-related scandal. Despite still using stainless steel bands on flat edges, you just don’t hear about the iPhone 13 Pro having such a signal issue.
The iPad 3 is a unique case of failure in more accurate history. Dubbed by Apple as “the new iPad,” the iPad 3 was the first iPad that came with a Retina Display, which first launched on the iPhone 4. Other features of the iPad 3 included the A5X chip with a quad-core graphics processor, 5MP camera, 1080p HD video recording, voice dictation, LTE, and more.
But why was the iPad 3 a failure? Well, after just seven months (221 days) of launching, Apple decided to discontinue it and launch the iPad 4. This is the shortest lifespan of any OS product, and it angered a lot of people who picked up the iPad 3 as their first iPad or had just upgraded from the iPad 2. And as we found out once the iPad 4 came along, the A5X chip was not enough to power the Retina Display — overall performance suffered because it was using a previous generation chip, and it also got too hot during use. The iPad 3 is also the last iPad to use the 30-pin dock connector, as the iPad 4 moved over to Lightning instead.
The iPad 3 is best forgotten but Apple fixed the problem by going at least a full year or longer between iPad upgrades. After all, when was the last time Apple released an iPad that didn’t even last a year before the next model was released? It started and ended with the iPad 3, which was honestly just a rushed product overall.
However, do keep in mind that at the moment, Apple does have a split in the current best iPad lineup when it comes to charging ports. At the moment, the only iPad that still uses Lightning is the base-level iPad. The rest of the lineup, which is the iPad mini 6, iPad Air 5, and iPad Pro (11-inch and 12.9-inch), all use USB-C. Perhaps the next entry-level iPad may transition over to USB-C, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Apple Maps in iOS 6
When Apple launched the original iPhone, it used Google Maps in the Maps app. This was back in the days when Apple and Google were still considered close allies — ah yes, the good old days. Another fun little tidbit is that Apple’s decision to use Google Maps was a somewhat last-minute decision, as Jobs only added it weeks before unveiling the iPhone. Why did he include it, aside from the fact that Google was a key partner back then? Jobs thought that Google Maps would make an excellent demonstration for the iPhone’s multitouch technology, and sure enough, it was. In fact, Jobs used the Google Maps demonstration to do the famous prank call to Starbucks during the MacWorld keynote.
But in 2012, Apple released iOS 6, which is well-known as the version of iOS that dropped Google Maps. Instead, Apple replaced Google Maps with its own map data, simply called Apple Maps, and it was one of the most botched launches in accurate Apple history. The truth is that Google had a year left in its contract with Apple to be the default Maps data, but Google was unwilling to add turn-by-turn navigation for the iPhone, which Apple wanted to have. So Apple’s solution was to get rid of Google and come up with its own in-house solution for Maps, which resulted in the iOS 6 Maps fiasco.
The biggest problem with Maps on iOS was accuracy. For a maps app to work, it needs to be, well, accurate. Early users of Apple Maps reported issues like directions taking them the wrong way, and buildings, roads, and rivers that were missing or just in completely wrong locations. There were also entire cities and landmarks that just didn’t seem to exist at all or lacked detail. With all of these issues, the first iteration of Apple Maps was just literally unusable, and it quickly became a joke.
To make matters worse, at the time, Google did not submit a standalone Google Maps app to the App Store, so users didn’t really have an alternative maps app if they were let down too often by Apple Maps. It was so bad that customer satisfaction actually dropped from iOS 5 to iOS 6.
Thankfully, Apple has improved Apple Maps in each iOS iteration ever since, and today, it’s honestly quite usable for the most part.
The butterfly keyboard
One of the freshest failures from Apple comes in the form of the butterfly keyboard that debuted in the new MacBooks in 2015. Prior to the butterfly keyboard, Apple was using the scissor-switch in MacBooks since 2012. The reason Apple changed the scissor switches for butterfly ones was because Apple wanted a thinner keyboard for thinner MacBooks (aka the Jony Ive era). Butterfly switches were a single-piece switch that resembled the wings of a butterfly — when pressed, the sides compressed downwards into a V or U shape.
However, Apple also advertised the butterfly switch design as being more stable due to how the mechanism “evenly distributes any applied pressure from a finger press.” While this may be true, the butterfly switch also had less travel than the scissor switch, which means less squish and movement, but more space for debris to accumulate. All of the debris that gathered in the butterfly switch ended up gunking up the mechanism, leading to a myriad of problems. Keys ended up getting stuck, repeating characters, or simply not working at all.
These issues led the butterfly keyboard to be one of the most hated features in accurate MacBooks. You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone with a butterfly keyboard MacBook that hasn’t had some kind of problem at some point during ownership. There was a huge recall program for the keyboards due to so many complaints.
After Jony Ive left Apple in 2019, Apple released new MacBook models with a “redesigned” Magic Keyboard that went back to the scissor-switch mechanism from 2012. Scissor-switch mechanisms are two-piece switches that interlock together into an “X” shape, and once pressed down, they close together like scissors. There’s less travel in a scissor-switch when compared to something like a mechanical keyboard, but it has more travel than the butterfly keyboard due to more space when compressed.
The scissor-switch Magic Keyboards have proven to be great to type on (though some, like myself, still prefer the best mechanical keyboards for a superior typing experience) and aren’t prone to failure like the butterfly version. Since Apple seems to be straying away from the “let’s flatten everything to be unbelievably thin” era, the days of the dreaded butterfly keyboard may be long in the rearview mirror.
Failures lead to success
Though Apple is an incredibly powerful brand that’s worth over a trillion dollars today, it took a long time to get to this point. Apple has gone through several big failures (this wasn’t even all of them), but it also learned from its past to ensure that the same mistakes didn’t happen again.
Apple is far from perfect, and history proves that. But it is definitely interesting to see how some of its earliest failures shaped its future and present, especially with the Newton, for example. Without that flop, we probably wouldn’t have the iPhone, and to an extent the iPad, as it is today. Mistakes and failures aren’t fun, but they’re necessary for growth and change.

New MacBook Pro users looking to make the best of their new laptops may be in for a long wait, as a key peripheral is in short supply. If you want to buy a new high-powered fast charger for your Apple laptop, you are in for a long wait.
Consumers looking to buy a second charger for their MacBook will find that the 96W and 140W chargers have a significant wait before they come back into stock. Joe Rossignol reports:
"In the United States, the adapters are currently available for delivery in an estimated 6-8 weeks on Apple's online store, resulting in a delivery date as late as October 3. The adapters have multi-week shipping delays in several other countries as well."
Apple made a big play about the fast charge capabilities of the new MacBook Pro models when they were launched in 2021; from empty to fifty per cent full could take as short a time as thirty minutes. The 140W charger ships with the 16-inch MacBook Pro, and the 96W comes with the higher-specced 14-inch MacBook Pro models.
Given the portability of these laptops, many consumers will be looking to carry a spare charger with them while travelling, to set up a space at their office, or to move around the house during long periods of work from home. That’s before considering the need for replacement chargers through wear and tear, accidental damage, or loss.
For those buying new machines, there is no sign of the delays carrying over. That initial Mac experience remains just as Apple intended. Once that moment is gone, consumers are looking at a long wait measured in months to keep using one of the big features of the new macOS laptops.

Apple’s yearly iPhone launch is the biggest date in the company’s calendar, and expectations are high for the iPhone 14 in the fall of 2022.
In this article we round up the latest leaks and rumors concerning Apple’s next flagship iPhone launch, including the iPhone 14’s release date, tech specs, design changes, new features, pricing and more. The latest news is that all iPhone 14 models are expected to get an upgraded front camera with autofocus and an f/1.9 aperture, while a controversial hole + pill design is set to replace the notch on the Pro models and the handset could gain an always-on display. Pro models will further differentiate themselves with a 48-megapixel rear camera and A16 processor.
While we wait for the new phones to arrive, you can pick up a bargain on the current range with our roundup of the best iPhone deals.
Update 8/8/22:A series of tweets compares mockups of the 14 Pro’s camera bump to that of the iPhone 13 Pro. It’s substantially bigger, and the phone seems a touch thicker, too.
iPhone 14 release date: When will the iPhone 14 launch?
We expect the iPhone 14 to be announced in mid-September 2022. Preorders will likely begin the Friday of the announcement week, with availability a week later.
Apple nearly always debuts its new iPhones in September each year, with COVID-19 causing one notable exception in 2020. It’s possible there will be similar delays this year–while the iPhone 14 Pro entered test production on schedule, the non-Pro models appear to have been delayed slightly–but we’d be surprised if Apple wasn’t able to get a handle on these issues in time for the fall. Mark September 2022 on your calendar for the coming of the new models.
Here’s when the last few generations arrived:
iPhone 13: September 24, 2021
iPhone 12: October 23, 2020
iPhone 11: September 20, 2019
iPhone XS: September 21, 2018
(Note that one iPhone has arrived already in 2022: the iPhone SE 3 was announced at Apple’s spring event on March 8. But the flagship launch will wait until the fall.)
iPhone 14 design: Will the iPhone 14 have a new design?
What will the iPhone look like in 2022? We expect significant design changes. Here are the latest rumors concerning the iPhone 14’s external appearance and physical chassis.
A bigger camera bump, and slightly thicker body
A accurate series of photos on Twitter compares an iPhone 14 Pro mock device with an iPhone 13 Pro. The shots really make it clear just how much further the camera bump will protrude from the back of the iPhone 14 Pro–likely necessary to house the new 48-megapixel wide camera, if other rumors are to be believed. If you look closely, it appears the body itself is just slightly thicker as well. This could be good news for those hoping for better battery life–thicker phones usually means bigger batteries.
Of course, this isn’t an official iPhone 14 Pro, just a dummy “mock” device built from leaked specifications.
New sizes: Goodbye mini, hello Max
The most basic and obvious design attribute is size, and most pundits agree that Apple is about to drop a big (or rather small) bombshell in that regard. All the signs suggest that the 5.4-inch iPhone mini line is going to be discontinued: Ming-Chi Kuo, for example, has predicted that Apple will kill off the mini to introduce the Max in 2022.
What that means in practice is that we’ll still get four models, but instead of these being split into one small, two medium and one large, it will be two medium and two large.
In other words, this lineup:
iPhone 13 mini (with a 5.4-inch screen)
iPhone 13 (6.1-inch screen)
iPhone 13 Pro (6.1-inch screen)
iPhone 13 Pro Max (6.7-inch screen)
will be replaced by this one:
iPhone 14 (6.1-inch screen)
iPhone 14 Max (6.7-inch screen)
iPhone 14 Pro (6.1-inch screen)
iPhone 14 Pro Max (6.7-inch screen)
Leaked images of case molds–used to design iPhone cases of the correct dimensions–illustrate these long-rumored size changes. Knowledgable Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman supports this theory, adding that Apple “will have to get more dramatic with ’s overhaul, especially as competition mounts.”
Not everyone will be glad to see the back of the mini form factor, as we explain in our article about why we mourn the iPhone mini. It’s likely that some customers will choose not to upgrade this year because of the lack of a mini model; Jason Snell is one of them. But after reportedly disappointing sales of the 12 mini and 13 mini, Apple must have calculated that their numbers will be sufficiently small that it makes sense to change to the new size strategy.
While we’re on the subject of sales, incidentally, there have been reports of Apple “cutting orders” for the iPhone 14, which some have taken as an indication of soft demand. But as the Macalope explains, that doesn’t make a lot of sense: the demand is anticipated to be as high as ever, but there seems to be supply-chain disruption. There might not be quite enough iPhone 14 handsets to go around when the launch is announced, but that’s nothing new for Apple.
Bigger displays: More screen space (slightly)
Note that these screens won’t be exactly the same size as their direct predecessors; nor will they exactly match the size of the non-Pro models. Slimmer bezels around the screen mean the Pro iPhones will gain a fraction of an inch in diagonal measurement, according to the reliable display analyst Ross Young.
You read that right: the Pro Max model is gaining precisely one hundredth of an inch of diagonal screen size. Needless to say, these microscopic changes in screen dimension are unlikely to be proclaimed in Apple’s marketing materials, which will continue to round to the nearest tenth of an inch.
No notch: Meet the “hole + pill” camera cutout
The iPhone 13 range saw a small decrease in the size of the infamous notch on the front display. But in 2022 it’s set to be replaced by something different, at least on the Pro models.
Instead of a notch cut out of the top of the screen, we now understand that the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will have a pair of smaller apertures for the front-facing camera and other sensors: both a pinhole camera and a notch, as we first heard back in October. Here’s what that might look like, based on an image showcasing the “hole + pill” design that was posted on Chinese social media in February 2022:
Another leak in May gave us another glimpse of the twin-hole design, and a direct comparison between the pilled-up Pro models and their notch-based equivalents. In this image (sourced from Weibo, via Twitter), we can clearly see the slight difference in bezel thickness which will mean more screen space on the costlier models.
One way for Apple to make it easier to remove the notch would be to reinstate Touch ID on the next iPhone. This can be done in one of two ways, both of which have been heavily rumored for some time now.
But is Apple prepared to countenance such an obvious backwards step? Touch ID was dropped from the flagship iPhones as long ago as 2017, with its ongoing confinement to more budget-focused models an implicit assertion that face recognition is better than fingerprint.
Our suspicion is that Apple will only restore Touch ID to its top-tier phones when it’s able to offer it alongside Face ID. And that doesn’t help whatsoever with the removal of the notch.
iPhone 14 colors: What color options will the iPhone 14 have?
Every year when Apple introduces a new iPhone it changes the color variants somewhat. Here’s what the color options have been for the past few years:
2021 iPhone 13 & mini: green, pink, blue, Midnight, Starlight, red
2021 iPhone 13 Pro & Max: Alpine Green, Silver, Gold, Graphite, Sierra Blue
2020 iPhone 12 & mini: purple, blue, green, black, white, red
2020 iPhone 12 Pro & Max: Pacific Blue, Silver, Gold, Graphite
2019 iPhone 11: purple, yellow, green, black, white, red
2019 iPhone 11 Pro Max: Midnight Blue, Silver, Gold, Space Gray
Each year the team at Apple comes up with new colors and new names for those colors. In the past the company has said that it takes inspiration from the colors that are deemed fashionable that season. The Pantone colors for Fall 2022 appear to be bold shades of orange, red, pink, yellow and green, so perhaps this seasons crop of Apple phones will be bold and brightly colored.
iPhone 14 price: How much will the iPhone 14 cost?
Price-wise, we expect the standard iPhone 14 model to start at around $800, with the iPhone 14 Pro model somewhere between $1,000 and $1,100 (or more if you want to add extra storage).
For a rough comparison, here are the current starting prices on the iPhone 13 series, as detailed in our iPhone buying guide. Note that these will drop in price when the 14-series handsets appear (or disappear from sale entirely).
iPhone 13 mini: $699/£679
iPhone 13: $799/£779
iPhone 13 Pro: $999/£949
iPhone 13 Pro Max: $1,099/£1,049
But expect the pricing structure for the iPhone 14 models to be a little different from the current range, for the simple reason that there isn’t expected to be a 5.4-inch mini version, but rather a lower-cost 6.7-inch Max size that Ming-Chi Kuo has said could come in at under $900. With that in mind, we expect the starting lineup to range from roughly $800-$1,000 in price, depending on model and size.
The new larger model could also shake up the Pro prices. LeaksApple Pro on Twitter reported that Apple “is currently considering” bumping the prices of the Pro iPhones by $100 apiece, pushing the iPhone 14 Pro to $1,099 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max to $1,199. The account cites increasing production costs and the need to provide more than a $100 difference between the 14 Max and the 14 Pro. A report in June also claimed Apple will up the price of the Pro models by $100 in 2022, with the iPhone 14 Pro could start at $1,099 and the Pro Max starting at $1,199. With the expected removal of the mini model, the low-end model will likely start at $799, while the iPhone 14 Max model will slide in at $899.
iPhone 14 tech specs: What features will the iPhone 14 have?
One of the tech community’s favorite games is working out what improvements and innovations Apple will come up with each year for its new iPhones.
Apple tests many new technologies, but whether they make it into the iPhone or not has to do with a complicated web of technical feasibility, cost, availability of parts from suppliers, and more. Here are the strongest clues we have about the features and spec upgrades you may see in the iPhone 14.
The iPhone 13 is said to have 120Hz ProMotion displays on the Pro models, with panels made by Samsung, while the non-Pro variants will reportedly use regular 60Hz displays made by LG. With the iPhone 14, LG is said to be making LPTO OLED displays capable of 120Hz to supply the entire iPhone line.
So it’s possible that the entire iPhone 14 line will have 120Hz ProMotion technology, which would follow Apple’s natural cadence: bring a feature to the Pro model first and then follow with the rest of the line a year later.
While we’re on the subject of screen upgrades, what about the recurrent rumor that Apple is planning to supply the iPhone an always-on display? Rather than turning off completely when you press the power button or leave the device idle for a few minutes, the screen would remain lit at all times, albeit–assuming Apple follows the same system it uses on the Apple Watch Series 5 and later–with a dimmer, simplified interface to preserve battery life.
This is an old perennial rumor, but it became particularly popular in 2021, when the feature was heavily rumored to appear on the iPhone 13. Although it failed to materialize that year, some pundits believe it has been delayed rather than abandoned, and that it could yet make an appearance this year.
So far, so vague. But things got more concrete at the end of May 2022, when knowledgeable leaker Mark Gurman nailed his colors to the mast with a specific prediction: iOS 16 includes a revamped, customizable lock screen with widgets, perfect for an always-on display. This change will not be available retrospectively to existing iPhones, Gurman says, but will be restricted to the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max only.
Big changes are apparently coming to the iPhone’s camera in the iPhone 14. While the two lines are expected to retain the same setup—dual camera in the standard iPhone 14 and triple-camera in the iPhone 14 Pro—Apple is planning a big leap for the higher-end models. Leaked schematics show a massive camera bump on the Pro models, protruding 4.17mm from the back of the case for a total thickness of 12.02mm, about a milimeter thicker than the iPhone 13 Pro.
According to Kuo, Apple is said to be considering a 48MP sensor for the standard wide camera, which would combine the pixels’ light collection in a 2×2 grid when in a low-light situation (producing a 12MP photo). The camera would reportedly be capable of shooting 8K video, at least on the Pro models. Kuo also says the front camera will gain autofocus and a wider aperture (f/1.9 instead of f/2.2).
In April, a post on Weibo (via Macrumors) claimed that the wide camera sensor will be 20 percent larger than iPhone 13 Pro. Together with the 48MP lens, that likely means the iPhone 14 Pro will take extremely detailed images in bright light while still relying on night mode to capture low-light images.
While the Pro models were previously rumored to include a “periscope” lens with variable zoom, the latest rumor says that feature won’t arrive until the 2023 iPhone (presumably the iPhone 15).
New A16 processor
Every new iPhone has a new A-series system-on-chip (SoC) and we expect the iPhone 14 to follow suit. The A16, as it will likely be called, could be one of the first large-scale processor releases to use TSMC’s 3-nanometer manufacturing process, which should help Improve performance, efficiency, and battery life. However, a report in November by The Information suggested Apple might stick with a 5nm process due to struggles with TSMC’s “cutting-edge manufacturing technique.”
You can read all about the new chip’s expected performance in our guide to the A16.
Furthermore, accurate rumors suggest only the Pro models will get the existing chip, while the non-Pro models will the same version of the A15 found in the iPhone 13 Pro models. That would be a doubling-down of the strategy Apple introduced with the iPhone 13 generation, when the Pro models got a slightly different chip for the first time: their version of the A15 featured five rather than four GPU cores, and 6GB of RAM rather than 4GB. Nevertheless, it would be unprecedented for one of Apple’s new flagship iPhones to come with the previous year’s A-series chip.
This is likely to set a precedent for the future, too. Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that “The latest processor chip will be exclusive to iPhone high-end models in the future, so a high shipment proportion of iPhone high-end models will be the norm.” As he notes, this is all part of a strategy to push more customers into buying the more expensive Pro models.
Improved battery life
Talking of battery performance, the Chinese-language site Economic Daily News believes the iPhone 14 will get a boost in this department thanks to improvements in 5G technology. The latest 5G components are smaller and more energy-efficient than the ones used in the previous generation of iPhones, freeing up space in the chassis and enabling Apple to fit in a larger battery. In June, a rumor from TheGalox on Twitter claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro will have a 3,200mAh battery (up from 3,095mAh in the iPhone 13 Pro) and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a 4,323mah battery (down very slightly from the 4,352 mAh in the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Apple is widely expected to upgrade the RAM allocation in its flagship iPhones, but there are two differing theories as to how it will do this.
Rumors from South Korea circulating in February 2022 suggested that Apple planned to bump the Pro and Pro Max handsets from 6GB of RAM in the 13-series generation to 8GB for the 14-series. The standard models, meanwhile, would jump from 4GB to 6GB.
A report from Trendforce in June 2022, however, claimed that all four new models will have 6GB of RAM; the Pro models, rather than gaining any more RAM, will instead be upgraded to feature faster LPDDR5 (versus LPDDR4X in the iPhone 14). This faster-RAM theory was backed up by a DigiTimes report in July 2022, and now appears to be the more likely to actually happen.
Up to 2TB of storage
Apple has only just broken the terabyte barrier, offering a cool 1TB as the top storage tier on the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max for the first time ever. But optimistic rumormongers think Apple will blast past that milestone and double up again to 2TB in 2022.
This theory is based on early testing activity at provider partners. But we’re not entirely convinced.
The death of the Lightning port
The idea that Apple will ditch the Lightning port on the iPhone and feature no ports at all has been rumored since before the iPhone 12 was launched. In this concept, rather than rely on cables for charging, all power would be delivered wirelessly. This would instantly render many accessories and power banks redundant, but Apple has never been shy about making unpopular decisions in the past. That could yet become a reality, but not in the near future.
In the meantime, a more likely option is that Apple will ditch Lightning and replace it with USB-C, as it’s already done on most of its iPads. The EU has been on the warpath for a while about proprietary charging standards, and a draft law forcibly standardising smartphone ports was rumored in August 2021. This came a step closer in September 2021, when the EU Commission presented a bill to unify charging cables. This could legally oblige Apple to produce a USB-C iPhone for sale in Europe–or to base all its new iPhones on USB-C so as to avoid the production inefficiency of making more than one design.
Sure enough, Ming-Chi Kuo has now gone on record with a prediction that Apple will indeed switch from Lightning to USB-C on its iPhone, although this won’t happen until 2023. That means the iPhone 14 will have an Lightning port, but it will be the last iPhone to do so.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models sold in the US offer mmWave (or millimetre wave) 5G, but elsewhere this form isn’t available. For instance, users in the UK rely on the slower sub-6GHz version of 5G, which US users get in addition to mmWave.
That may change with the iPhone 14. We reported back before the launch of the iPhone 13 that Apple had made a large order for mmWave antenna, which suggested that the UK and other countries would get faster 5G with the iPhone 13. But in the end the technology was kept a US-only option.
In April 2021 the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that support for mmWave would be rolled out in far more countries as part of the launch of the iPhone 13 models. He mentioned Canada, Australia, Japan and “major European mobile operators,” which may include the UK. Maybe Kuo’s radar was slightly off, and mmWave will make its international debut in the iPhone 14 instead?
So, what’s the big deal with mmWave? Well, the theoretical maximum speed for mmWave is 1-2 gigabits per second, compared to the 100-400 megabits offered by Sub-6 GHz. However, Sub-6GHz offers a much longer range, which is to the benefit of users outside the big cities. We have a separate article where you can read about the 5G coverage problems faced by the iPhone in the UK.
We have a good idea, by the way, of the components Apple will use to provide this improved 5G connectivity, with the newly updated X65 expected to appear in the iPhone 14. This is interesting because it allows the use of mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G at the same time, and offers unprecedented speeds of up to 10Gb/s and even improved power efficiency.
Wi-Fi 6E is similar to Wi-Fi 6, which the last three generations of iPhone already support. But it adds compatibility with the 6Hz band, increasing bandwidth, improving speeds and reducing interference.
According to a July 2021 report from the Taiwanese site DigiTimes, the late-2021 iPhones were thought to feature support for the new Wi-Fi 6E wireless standard. But this didn’t happen, suggesting that it could be one of the new features in the iPhone 14 range–and in November 2021 Ming-Chi Kuo gave this theory his backing.
DigiTimes wasn’t the first site to predict Wi-Fi 6E in iPhones, with Barclays analysts forecasting the same upgrade back in January 2021.
iPhone 15 and beyond
While many of these rumors look set to appear in the iPhone 14, it’s always tricky to guess where Apple will go next. So take this guide with a pinch of salt, as anything could happen over the months-long wait for the new device.
Bear in mind too that some planned changes or new features may slip and get pushed back to the next generation. For example, in terms of design, the evidence is piling up that Apple is working on something very radical: more radical indeed than the iPhone X.
An embryonic clamshell design currently known as the iPhone Flip is in development at Apple HQ. Prolific leaker Jon Prosser says it’s reminiscent of the Galaxy Z Flip, and will come in “fun colors.” But he also warns that it won’t launch in 2022, ruling out the iPhone 14.
Mon, 08 Aug 2022 05:11:00 -0500Author: Macworld Staffen-UStext/htmlhttps://www.macworld.com/article/677790/iphone-14-2022-release-date-specs-rumors-price.htmlKillexams : Apple Loop: iPhone 14 Features Leak, MacBook Disappointment, iPad Update Delay
Taking a look back at another week of news and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop includes some stunning iPhone performance benchmarks, surprising iPhone 14 price, iOS always-on screen leaks, MacBook Pro questions, iPad OS delay, Apple’s advertising expansion, and Microsoft’s Apple Silicon move.
While the upcoming iPhones may not have any ground-breaking features - they are being to feel more like "S" updates with each revelation - Apple looks set to turn up the performance on the handsets. The latest details on the lower-end iPhone 14 models suggest a reworking around the modem to offer a faster phone:
"...Apple has redesigned the internals of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max and will equip them with a new Qualcomm X65 modem. The former is typically done to Improve heat build-up, which allows chips to run faster for longer. The latter is expected to be up to 30% faster than its predecessor, the X60, while adding global support for mmWave — 5G’s fastest band. The leaker ends by saying ‘etc’, indicating that Apple has made further improvements elsewhere."
The iPhone looks set to challenge the competition in another way this autumn. As prices rise across the board from suppliers and subcontractors, Apple is looking to keep the price of the entry-level iPhone in 2023 at the same level as the 2022 model:
"...Apple’s decision was based on “global mobile phone market stagnation and demand decline... so the price of the basic model is frozen despite some price increase factors.” Detailed by other leakers, these factors include an increase in component prices due to shortages and Apple upgrading several key elements of the iPhone 14 lineup. Most notably, an all-new front-facing camera module from LG Innotek, which leaks claim is triple the price of its predecessor."
A closer examination of the source code from Apple's xCode developer environment, has revealed settings and trial code that would allow iOS to offer an always-on experience. That doesn't ensure the tool will appear in the iPhone 14 family, but it makes it much more likely.
"Spotted by rhogelleim, an iOS developer, the fourth beta of Xcode 14 seems to include an example of what an Always on Display may look like for the iPhone. As seen below in the screenshot, the iPhone will appear to darken and gray out the screen when the Always on Display feature is turned on. "The developer notes that the widget (of Tim Cook's face) is usually in full color, but the SwiftUI preview removes all of the colors from the image when this potential feature activates"
Every time there looks to be something to suggest the 13-inch MacBook Pro might be a good idea, reality knocks on the door. Even with a $200 discount mere weeks after its launch, the M2-powered laptop still feels isolated from the rest of Apple's macOS portfolio. I've taken a look at the middle ground the MacBook Pro is stuck in:
"Apple has kept this consumer-focused MacBook Pro around for at least another two years, sitting awkwardly between the consumers' MacBook Air and the professionals' MacBook Pro. It should deliver more performance than the MacBook Air thanks to the active cooling of the M2 chipset, but it still falls short of the M1 Pro and M1 Max in the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models from 2021. It should offer better value for money than the larger MacBook pro models, but it's the MacBook Air that carries the new design cues and modern touches, not the smaller MacBook Pro."
With the focus on the iPad platform pushing it towards more mobile computing work, iPadOS continues to expand and accommodate the changes required. This year's update is running a few weeks behind schedule... expect it alongside a macOS release in October rather than the iOS release in September:
"It’s not uncommon for macOS to follow a few weeks after iOS, but the iPad software has always been updated on the same schedule as its iPhone sibling. Since iPadOS split from iOS in 2019, the two operating systems have arrived on the same day. [Bloomberg's Mark] Gurman says all of Apple’s software updates are running just a little behind schedule this year (the Public Betas launched a little later than usual, for example), but not drastically so."
Apple looks set to expand on its advertising delivery system with a new set of hirings suggesting a Demand Side Platform for serving ads throughout Apple's properties is being worked on. This is likely to target areas such as App Store Ads, in the News and Stocks app, and potentially into live streaming and media events (such as Friday night baseball:
"A DSP is a statement of intent for any ads business — let alone one like Apple, which has grown exponentially on the back of its decision to make it harder for companies to grow their own within its ecosystem. Indeed, a DSP is a core part of an ad tech stack for any company with designs on winning more media dollars. It’s technology, or more specifically software, that lets a marketer advertise with the help of automation. The automation of the process is important because it means marketers can set up campaigns and manage them with relative ease. In turn, they’re likely to spend more."
In the move away from Intel to Apple Silicon, Apple's Rosetta software allowed x86-based apps to keep running in the belief that developers would move over to the ARM-based chipset in time. Microsoft's popular Teams app has made that jump this week:
"We are rolling out a production grade universal binary version of Teams, which means it will run natively on the entire Mac lineup, including those with Apple silicon. For Mac users, this means a significant boost in performance, ensuring efficient use of device resources and an optimized Teams experience even when using multiple high-resolution monitors during calls or meetings."
Fri, 05 Aug 2022 10:33:00 -0500Ewan Spenceentext/htmlhttps://www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspence/2022/08/05/apple-iphone-14-specs-modem-leak-ipados-delay-macbook-pro-problems-apple-advertising/Killexams : Apple Watch Series 8 to Gain Health Features Thanks to New Hardware
The Apple Watch Series 8 will feature new hardware to facilitate further health monitoring, according to accurate reports.
Body temperature monitoring for the Apple Watch has long been rumored by sources like Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, but over the past year rumors have crystalized around the feature finally debuting on the Apple Watch Series 8 later this year. Reports indicate that while it is unlikely to offer exact body temperature measurements, the sensor will be used to provide at least two new health monitoring features.
Moreover, the body temperature sensor could be used to Improve the detection of patterns when tracking sleep. Apple leveraged blood oxygen sensing capabilities during sleep starting with the Apple Watch Series 6 and significantly bolstered the Apple Watch's sleep tracking in watchOS 9, meaning that further improvements in this area aided by hardware this year seem very plausible.
Apple is also said to have plans to enable the body temperature sensor to detect when a user has a fever, but it seems unlikely that this feature will be available upon the launch of the Apple Watch Series 8. Gurman believes that further in the future, Apple Watch models could determine if a user has a higher than normal body temperature, but it is still unlikely to show an exact measurement.
The problems Apple has experienced relating to body temperature measurement purportedly relate to the fact that skin temperature quickly varies based on the environment, and since a smartwatch cannot monitor core body temperature using hardware, the feature is heavily dependent on an algorithm that produces accurate results.
Gurman recently said that Apple's blood-pressure monitoring technology is not expected to arrive until 2025, and blood-glucose monitoring is not set to be ready until "nearer to the end of the decade."
