Two iPhone Models Will Make Up Apple’s Next Release

How many iPhone models will Apple release this year? The obvious answer is four, but with the latest leaks and details, it feels like a better answer would be two pairs… the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, plus the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max:

†[This] fits in with Apple’s broader strategy to differentiate more between the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models. While the iPhone 14 phones will look identical to the iPhone 13, will have the same notch, the same generation chipset and the same rear cameras, the iPhone 14 Pro will have a new design, next-gen chipsets and vastly improved cameras. “

Slowing down the next generation of Mac chipsets

Ahead of a potential unveiling of the next-generation Apple Silicon at WWDC later this month, details about the presumably named M2 chipset suggest it may not be as impressive in the performance department as many might expect. TSMC will not have the advanced technology ready until next year:

Apple’s upcoming update to its silicon lineup — namely the A16 for the new iPhone lineup and the presumably named M2 chipset that many expect to debut in the next MacBook Air — may not live up to the high expectations many have set. has new manufacturing facilities coming online offering the N3 N4P manufacturing process and will not be ready for mass production until 2023.”

iPad supply chain diversifies

In response to supply chain issues in Shanghai, Apple is moving some of its iPad production from China to Vietnam and is asking supply chain partners to work on building inventory to help meet future challenges:

“The iPad will be the second major line of Apple products to be made in the Southeast Asian country, following the AirPods earbud line. The move highlights not only Apple’s ongoing efforts to diversify its supply chain, but also the growing importance of Vietnam for the company. Apple shipped 58 million iPads last year, with the vast majority of the device’s suppliers concentrated in China.”

To air or not to air

With WWDC kicking off next week, developers are not only looking forward to details about the newer version of all of Apple’s OS platforms (and looking for release dates for the developer betas), the question of when Apple will announce the next MacBook Air remains. dominate the consumer channels:

“Apart from all the operating systems being previewed, Apple could also launch the MacBook Air 2022 during WWDC 2022. According to the latest edition of the Power On newsletter, Gurman says, “If there’s hardware at WWDC, it probably will be on the Being a Mac The company has set itself the goal of launching the next MacBook Air with M2 chips at the conference.” If so, expect a redesigned MacBook Air with next-generation M chips”

The new iPhone way of doing things

The main changes, of course, are in the operating systems and Apple’s annual update of each platform. More important than the individual changes is the overall direction Apple will take to bring the platforms closer together and keep people closely connected to Apple’s cloud-based services. Jessica Bursztynsky takes a look at what iOS updates we can expect:

The changes to the iPhone include updates to notifications, messages and the Health app, Bloomberg said. Apple also made new changes to notifications last year, including the ability to bundle them together into a summary at a certain time of day. , and a new Focus mode that limits the notifications you see at certain times.”

The camera in the watch

A nice detail from Apple’s latest round of patents this week, showing another twist on putting a camera on your wrist via an Apple Watch. This time, instead of firing through the watch face, the idea is to use a camera inside the digital crown, as the patent explains:

“A lens can be integrated into the diaphragm and/or behind the diaphragm of the dial to focus an image of a scene,” it continues. “An image sensor placed behind the diaphragm can be further configured to movement of a marker on the dial to enable the image sensor to function both as a camera for taking pictures of a scene, and as a sensor that detects the rotation of the dial to detect rotary input.””

And finally…

With Apple doing its best to blur the lines between the iPad and the MacBook (for consumers at least), Federico Viticci is moving from using the iPad Pro as their daily driver to one of the M1 Max-powered MacBook Pro laptops. Is this change necessary due to a lack of “Pro” apps on the iPad Pro? Enjoyable? Recommended? Sit down with a pre-WWDC coffee to find out.

“For the past six months, I’ve been using my MacBook Pro instead of the iPad Pro to get my work done on a daily basis. I’ve continued to use the iPad Pro to test my shortcuts, read articles, and write in places where I don’t have enough space had for a MacBook, but overall I’ve been living the macOS lifestyle for half a year now… here’s my story on how this experiment went.”
