Disappointing iPhone 15 Pro leak, embarrassing MacBook Pro upgrade, ugly iPhone design choice

by admin

Kicking off another week of news and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop includes a disappointing iPhone 15 leak, huge camera upgrade, iOS updates for everyone , an embarrassing MacBook Pro upgrade, a possible new Mac display, a mixed reality glasses program, and a Warren Buffett has $10,000 for your iPhone.

The Apple Loop is here to remind you of some of the many Apple discussions over the past seven days (and you can read our weekly Android news roundup here on Forbes).

The iPhone 15 loses an innovative feature

It was widely expected that Apple would bring a new solid-state button to the iPhone 15, replacing the volume keys and the wake slider. Unfortunately, this exciting feature will not appear this year:

According to a new blog post from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple had to drop the feature due to “unresolved technical issues.” Kuo doesn’t say what those issues are but does reveal that the more popular iPhone 15 Pro design will be the end result:


The ugly iPhone bulge of 2023

The body of the new iPhones may be ridiculously thin, but even with new optical technology, the physical nature of camera lenses means the bulge island will continue to grow:

“…the iPhone 15 Pro Max may actually have a slimmer rear camera bump than its predecessor due to the proprietary space-saving periscope (optical zoom) module. On the other hand, the iPhone 15 Pro will have a massive rear camera bump that’s almost as thick as the phone itself.

Old and new security updates for iOS

The latest iOS update addresses a number of major security issues, which means not all existing app bug fixes have been resolved, so iOS 16.4 is highly recommended. Apple also updated iOS 15 with the same security updates. Even if older devices do not support app support or updates, security patches are still applied:

Two of the four fixes in this new update are security fixes, as described below. Over the past few hours, Apple released a new update targeting previous iPhone owners. The new iOS 15.7.5 update is for these phones: iPhone 6s (all models), iPhone 7 (all models and iPhone SE (1st generation). This also applies to both iPad, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini (4th generation), as well as the 7th generation iPod touch.


The clunky MacBook Pro upgrade

Apple Silicon’s M3 update is expected to launch the new MacBook Air and Mac Mini… There will also be another update for the smaller 13-inch MacBook Pro. For what?

Those who need power are looking for larger laptops, those looking for a more versatile device will take the M3 Air, and those more focused on value for money are hoping the M2 Air will become the entry-level MacBook. at $999. MacBook Air in the mix. Apple is considered a company that meets customer expectations. Who’s waiting for another anemic 13″ MacBook Pro? »


The new show is coming… at some point

It looks like Apple is still working on a new 27-inch external display. We probably won’t see it until early 2025:

Kuo said the display will include all the features “one would expect from a high-end display”, likely referring to ProMotion 120Hz support. It will also use a new tempered glass panel , which changes from what we usually see in Apple’s current line of products with displays. »


Glasses lenses

There’s an interesting timeline for Apple’s mixed reality project. It is based on the use of “metalenes”, first on a certain number of sensors, before moving on to a commercial product of mixed reality:

“…the debut Metalens will go into mass production in 2024 for use as a Face ID cover in the iPad Pro. If successful, the iPhone will adopt Metalens technology for Face ID in 2025 or 2026, although Kuo says the latter is more content in the real world. Kuo says Apple Glasses will go into production in 2026 or 2027 at the earliest.

Warren Buffett, perhaps half an eye on an ad, said no Apple fan would give up their iPhone, even for a five-figure sum.

“If you’re an Apple user and someone offers you $10,000, but the only condition is that they take your iPhone and you can never buy another one, you won’t get it. If they tell you if you buy another Ford, they’ll give you $10,000 not at that, and you’ll take $10,000 and buy a Chevy instead. »
