iPhone 14 Plus lead times start growing, Pro models...

The iPhone 14 Pro models are still seeing high demand versus the iPhone 13 Pro, a product availability tracker claims, while the iPhone 14's demand is apparently weaker than that of the iPhone 13, but there's seemingly good news for the iPhone 14 Plus.Since launch, the iPhone 14 Pro has demonstrated itself to be a very popular device with consumers. In its fourth week, Sunday's Apple Product Availability Tracker by analysts at JP Morgan sees a similar situation to one week prior, with strong demand for the Pro models, weak for the non-Pro.However, the silver lining for the iPhone 14 is the iPhone 14 Plus. As the October 7 release date nears, the lead times for that model are starting to extend...

OWC Envoy Pro mini review: Enough speed in a small...

The OWC Envoy Pro mini thumb drive's latest version embraces the aluminum-clad USB-C future, providing a nice balance of performance and size for tech professionals on the go.External storage for the Mac and iPad Pro can take a few forms, including the thumb drive and the full-blown external SSD in an enclosure. While the former is typically smaller, the latter generally offers more in terms of capacity and speed.Launched in May 2022, the OWC Envoy Pro mini is clearly a double-ended flash drive. But, because of design and engineering choices, it approaches the performance of a larger external SSD.

Gurman: Apple Event This October Remains Unlikely,...

Apple is developing new iPad Pro, Mac, and Apple TV models, and at least some of these products will be released in October, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. However, Gurman continues to believe that Apple is unlikely to hold an event this month.

In the latest edition of his Power On newsletter, Gurman said "the big iPhone 14 unveiling last month was probably it for Apple in 2022 in terms of major presentations," suggesting that any iPad, Mac, and Apple TV product launches would be announced with press releases, media briefings, and updates to Apple's online store.

While sentiment for the older system is still strong, it appears that Apple won't be backtracking from Face ID on the iPhone within the next few generations.In Sunday's "Power On" newsletter for Bloomberg, Mark Gurman writes that Apple has discussed the possibility of getting Touch ID on high-end iPhones once again.

Apple VP Leaves Company After Vulgar Comment Goes...

Apple's vice president of procurement, Tony Blevins, has left the company after a TikTok video showed him making a vulgar comment about women at a car show. CNBC reports: An Apple representative confirmed the departure to CNBC, saying, "Tony is leaving Apple." The departure was spurred by a TikTok video posted Sept. 5, according to Bloomberg, which first reported the news. In the video, reviewed by CNBC, Blevins is getting out of an expensive Mercedes-Benz sports car and is asked what he does for a living by Daniel Mac, who has a channel centered around asking people in expensive cars questions. In the video, Blevins responds, "I race cars, play golf and fondle big-breasted women. But I take weekends and major holidays off." The remark appears to be a reference to a similar quote in the movie "Arthur." It was viewed 1.3 million times, according to the TikTok page. "Blevins was a VP at Apple," notes CNBC.

While we had been expecting a follow-up October Apple event focused on Mac and iPad announcements, it sounds like we might not be getting another event after all. Instead, the pending updates in those product segments could be considered minor enough that they may be announced via press releases.

Apple today updated its list of vintage and obsolete products to add the iPhone 6 because it has now been more than five years since the device was last offered for sale. The ‌iPhone‌ 6 has something of a unique launch situation, so the timing of its addition to the list is a little bit off.

The Wall Street Journal's Joanna Stern recently traveled to Michigan to test Apple's new crash detection feature on the iPhone 14 and Apple Watch Ultra. In response, Apple provided some additional information about how the feature works.

Stern recruited Michael Barabe to crash his demolition derby car with a heavy-duty steel frame into two unoccupied vehicles parked in a junkyard — a 2003 Ford Taurus and a 2008 Dodge Caravan. The results were mixed, with the iPhone and Apple Watch only detecting some of the crashes, which Apple said was the result of the testing conditions in the junkyard failing to provide enough "signals" to trigger the feature every time.When I contacted Apple with the results, a company spokesman said that the testing conditions in the junkyard didn't provide enough signals to the iPhone to trigger the feature in the stopped...

Apple's Korea Offices Raided by Antitrust...

Apple's South Korean headquarters have been raided by antitrust regulators after a complaint was raised by developers that it is charging them over the standard 30% App Store commission rate. From a report: The dawn raid by the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) was reported by local media on Monday and covered on Friday by the Foss Patents blog, highlighting the ongoing investigation in the country into Apple's alleged abuse of market power. The complaint that sparked the raid was reportedly brought by mobile game developers who argued that Apple charges more than the typical 30% commission rate for purchases made in the App Store. As Foss Patents points out, Apple charges 30% of the price paid by end users, which includes value added tax (VAT), making it 10% higher than the amount on which Google bases its 30% commission, which doesn't include VAT. Apple is therefore collecting 33% (30% of 110%), not the headline 30% rate.

One of the key features of the new AirPods Pro 2 is adaptive audio transparency, but according to the latest iOS 16.1 beta, that may be coming to the first-generation AirPods Pro too.Adaptive Transparency is the new feature that removes loud noises yet keeps the listener aware of general environmental sounds.

The new hardware is going to make the feature work but as spotted by Reddit user Pacino, the software control has been added to the latest iOS 16.1 beta for AirPods Pro 1 as well.

Apple Stops Signing iOS 16 and iOS 16.0.1,...

Following the launch of iOS 16.0.2 last Thursday, Apple has stopped signing iOS 16 and iOS 16.0.1, the two previously available versions that came out in mid-September. Since the two versions are no longer being signed, it is not possible to downgrade to those versions of iOS after installing iOS 16.0.2.

Apple routinely stops signing older versions of software updates after new releases come out in order to encourage customers to keep their operating systems up to date, so it is not unusual that iOS 16 and iOS 16.0.1 are no longer being signed.

Apple released iOS 16 to the general public on September 12 following several months of beta testing. Key new features include a highly customizable Lock Screen, the ability to temporarily edit or unsend iMessages, improvements to Focus modes, and more. The free software update...

Apple Korea offices raided by antitrust officials

Officials from Korea's Fair Trade Commission conducted a dawn raid on Apple's offices in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, over allegations that its App Store has been collecting 33% in-app payment fees, rather than its stated 30%.Apple has previously settled a South Korea antitrust case, which had been about the company allegedly abusing its size to drive out local competition.

Developer Asahi Lina with the Asahi Linux project was successfully able to get GNOME running on the Apple M1, including "Firefox with YouTube video playback, the game Neverball, various KDE applications, and more," reports Phoronix. From the report: This is some great progress especially with the driver being written in Rust -- the first within the Direct Rendering Manager subsystem -- and lots of work there with the Rust infrastructure in early form. It won't be until at least Linux 6.2 before this driver could be mainlined while we'll see how quickly it tries to go mainline before it can commit to a stable user-space interface. At the moment there is also a significant driver "hack" involved but will hopefully be sorted out soon. Over in user-space, the AGX Gallium3D driver continues being worked on for OpenGL support with hopes of having OpenGL 2.1 completed by year's end. Obviously it will be longer before seeing the Apple graphics suitable for modern gaming with Vulkan, etc...

Though the iPhone 14 series just saw release, that doesn’t stop the rumor train from running toward next-year’s iPhone 15 series, including rumors of further segmentation in the Pro series.

The latest iPadOS 16 beta released earlier this week expands a Display Zoom option for more screen space to 2018 and 2020 models of the 11-inch iPad Pro with A12X and A12Z chips. The feature was previously limited to iPad models with the M1 chip.

Apple has seen high demand for the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max, which could lead the company to further differentiate the next-generation iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo last week said that Apple asked manufacturing partners to ramp up production of the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models due to strong demand, and today, he noted that the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max accounts for approximately 60 percent of the total order increase of the Pro models.

Apple Rejects TSMC Bid to Increase Chip Price

The world’s leading advanced semiconductor manufacturer, TSMC, reportedly planned to raise its chip prices by 6% to 9%. Apple, TSMC’s largest client, relies solely on that manufacturer for just about all of its products. Nevertheless, the Cupertino-based tech giant has rejected TSMC’s suggested increase in chip prices.

Trying to Price More Expensive Chips Even Higher

Already, TSMC’s chips are around 20% higher than those of its direct rivals. However, even the smaller foundries have been raising their prices in recent years. Higher material and logistics costs drive such price increases. So does new investment, such as the $100 billion TSMC has committed for the next three years towards improving its processes and building new factories.
