  5. Long before the expected announcement, the design and characteristics of the successor to the iPhone SE have already been repeatedly highlighted on the internet. The new leak turned out to be more detailed: insiders published the exact date of the upcoming presentation of the new product, as well as listed other devices of the company that will be announced along with the "budget" smartphone. According to the German resource iPhone-ticker.de citing its own sources close to Apple, the company's next official event will take place on March 31 this year. It is reported that on this day the corporation will present the iPhone 9 (previously known as the iPhone SE 2), which will go on sale on April 3.

  6. In this release of Made in China, you will learn about Jack Ma's unusual departure from the post of head of Alibaba; the demand for new iPhones and Apple's violation of Chinese law. The head of Alibaba left the company with a grand concert On September 10, last year, founder and CEO of Alibaba Group, Jack Ma, announced his departure from the company. It took a year to complete all the work, and last Tuesday, September 10, Jack Ma officially handed over the post of head of the corporation to his successor, Daniel Zhang. All this happened during a grand concert. Jack Ma officially announced his resignation during an event dedicated to the 20th anniversary of Alibaba. During the four-hour celebration at the stadium with a capacity of 80,000 people, the billionaire staged a real performance. He changed into a rock star and sang several songs for thousands of employees in his organization. Earlier, Ma announced that after leaving Alibaba, he intends to engage in charity and education. Interestingly, Ma announced his departure on Teacher's Day in China. Recall that in the past he was a simple teacher of English. The new iPhone did not impress the Chinese Apple introduced the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max this week. Most of the noise was made by the regular iPhone 11, which compared to last year's iPhone XR fell in price by $ 50 - $ 699 instead of $ 749. However, in Asian countries, including China, where Apple technology is often very popular, there was no hype. According to analysts, lower prices for the iPhone 11 will allow Apple to improve its position in the Chinese market, where in recent years it has been actively losing its share. However, users on social networks are very cool talking about the new "apple" smartphones. One of the main complaints is the lack of support for fifth-generation networks in the updated iPhone. People write that they are more likely to choose devices from HUAWEI, Vivo or Samsung, which already offer 5G. Analysts at the Counterpoint research firm believe that this year Apple will be able to sell 30-35 million smartphones in China - almost half as much as in 2015. In India - another market priority for Apple - there is also no particular demand for new iPhones. According to an analyst at the Indian division of IDC, local users are more likely to buy last year's iPhone XR, which, after the presentation of the iPhone 11, fell markedly. Apple and Foxconn violated Chinese laws At the end of last year, Apple and Foxconn accused the schoolchildren of illegally using smartwatches Apple Watch. And now, after almost a year, both companies again fell into a similar situation. Now they are accused of violating Chinese labor laws. According to Bloomberg, citing an investigation by China Labor Watch, a nonprofit human rights group, Apple and Foxconn use too many temporary workers at Zhengzhou’s largest iPhone factory. The report of the China Labor Watch, an organization that investigates conditions in Chinese factories, said that the number of temporary staff (including minors) at Foxconn in August this year exceeded 50% instead of 10%. At the end of the month, many students returned to school, which caused the number of temporary workers to drop to 30%, which is also illegal, the study said. To find out, China Labor Watch members personally went to work at the Foxconn factory in Zhengzhou and conducted their investigation. Following the release of China Labor Watch data, Apple said it had conducted its own investigation into the number of temporary workers in its partner's factory. The American corporation recognized that their actual number exceeds its standards. Moreover, Apple also found that interns (often schoolchildren) work overtime at night, which also violates the company's policies. However, they work voluntarily and have received adequate compensation for their work. But with regard to temporary workers, Apple intends to conduct "outreach" with Foxconn. By the way, Foxconn also recognized the existence of this problem and promised to sort it out.
  7. Several analysts and insiders specializing in Apple-related rumors are sure that this year the company will release not only the flagship iPhone 12 and the “budget” iPhone 9, but also another relatively affordable smartphone. Already in March, the iPhone 9 is expected to be released, which should cost significantly less than other current Apple smartphones. According to new data, the company also plans to release iPhone 9 Plus this year. Insiders attribute this device to a virtually frameless IPS display with a diagonal somewhere between 5.5 and 6.1 inches. To reduce the price, the “plus” will not have a Face ID facial recognition system. But he is credited with a fingerprint scanner in the power button, about which rumors have recently appeared. As in the regular iPhone 9, the Plus version expects the A13 Bionic processor installed in the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. Sources also report that the presentation of the iPhone 9 Plus will be held at the end of this year.
  8. Famous insider OnLeaks published the first reliable images of the long-awaited heir to the iPhone SE. As expected, the smartphone will be called the iPhone 9 and will be presented in the spring of this year. As well as the authoritative analyst Ming-Chi Kuo assumed, iPhone 9 (the name iPhone SE 2 is not excluded) will be an almost full copy of the iPhone 8 which Apple still officially sells in the shops. The renderings from OnLeaks show that the smartphone is equipped with the same 4.7-inch IPS display with a fairly large frame and a "Home" button with a fingerprint scanner Touch ID. On the reverse side, probably made of glass, is the lens of a single camera. According to the insider, the dimensions of the new product will be 138.5 x 67.4 x 7.8 mm (8.6 mm in the camera area). For comparison, the dimensions of the iPhone 8 are slightly smaller: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm. what caused the increase in the iPhone 9 is unclear. It is assumed that the smartphone will get an A13 processor, as in the iPhone 11, 3 GB of RAM and a 64 or 128 GB drive. Its presentation is expected in the spring of 2020, and the price may be from 399 dollars.
  9. In the network every now and then there are new portions of rumors about one of the most anticipated smartphones from Apple - the heir to the super-popular iPhone SE. Based on all the latest leaks, the designers created renderings showing the likely appearance of the future device. The next version of iPhone SE 2 is credited with the classic design with a flat metal frame without smooth transitions and rounded frames, familiar from the iPhone 5 and the original iPhone SE 2. At the same time, the designer added elements from the latest iPhone: an almost frameless screen with a fringe and a dual main camera in the style of the iPhone 11. However, the presented renderings are more like someone's fantasy about the perfect iPhone, which contains successful solutions to already released models. In reality, the heir to the iPhone SE can get a completely different design. Authoritative insider Ming-Chi Kuo previously reported that it will be a full copy of the iPhone 8. According to previous rumors, the smartphone will get a new A13 processor, as in the latest iPhones, a 4.7-inch display, 3 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a 64 or 128 GB drive. It will reportedly be available in three colors: gray, white and red. The presentation is expected in the spring of 2020, and the cost can be from 399 dollars.
  10. Summing up the year, Apple has published a list of the best games and apps for iPhone and iPad according to the censors of the App Store. Choosing the winners in various categories, the jury evaluated not only the performance of the user interface and functionality but also the feedback of the users themselves. Apple named Specter Camera the best app of the year. The winner’s trick was the use of AI-algorithms for shooting on the iPhone with long shutter speed - this function is absent in the regular camera application. For iPad, Flow by Moleskine, a multi-functional notebook with quick access to various tools and a minimalistic interface, became the application of the year. In the category "best app for Mac" App Store censors awarded the victory to Affinity Publisher. With it, you can make up flyers or booklets without having to go through the grueling process of learning the design of printing. The jury and the Apple TV set-top box were not left without attention, for which The Explorer was recognized as the best program: a digital gallery designed to help scientists and representatives of creative professions catalog images. Game of the year on the iPhone was quest Sky: Children of the Light, developed by thatgamecompany. Its atmosphere, color palette, gameplay, and music received the highest critics' award. The best game on the iPad was the 16-bit adventure Hyper Light Drifter, the release of the original version of which was introduced back in 2016 for Windows, macOS and Linux platforms. On computers and Mac laptops, the title of the best game was earned by the GRIS puzzle platformer, which two studios worked at once: Nomada Studio and Devolver. Noted by Apple and Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap - an exclusive adventure arcade game available on Apple TV. You can see the full list of nominations on the official page of the ceremony.
  11. Without high-profile presentations and live broadcasts, Apple introduced a new generation of MacBook Pro laptops. This time the computer for the first time received a 16-inch display, a new processor and RAM up to 64 GB. Once again, the mechanism of the built-in keyboard has changed. Apple also called the release dates for the updated Mac Pro desktop. Instead of the model with a 15-inch display, the company offers a new version with a 16-inch screen with a resolution of 3072x1920 pixels. According to the manufacturer, the power increase of the updated laptop reaches 80% compared to its predecessor. It is noteworthy that the choice of configuration with 64 GB of RAM and 8 TB SSD-drive. By the way, the top version of this model will cost $6099. Optionally available are MacBook Pro 16 " models with discrete Radeon Pro 5300m/5500M graphics up to 8GB. The new 16-inch MacBook Pro is equipped with six speakers at once. The built-in keyboard has also undergone changes, which now, according to Apple engineers, will be free from the problem of “sticking” and mechanical damage and has a keystroke of 1 mm. The cost of the MacBook Pro 16 "with a six-core processor, 512 GB of internal and 16 GB of RAM, as well as an AMD Radeon Pro 5300M graphics accelerator - $2399. In parallel, the company announced the upcoming sale of the updated Mac Pro with a maximum SSD disk capacity of up to 8 TB. The new desktop computer will appear in retail in December for as low as $ 6,000 for a version with a 28-core processor, 1.5 TB of storage space and AMD Radeon Pro graphics.
  12. Apple's augmented reality glasses are expected to be released next year. It turns out that within the walls of the "Apple" Corporation is working on another wearable gadget. In one of the company's latest patents, mentions of a smart ring for controlling other devices were discovered. The patent describes an intelligent smart ring consisting of a processor, microphone and module for wireless connection. The accessory will also have sensors to record movements, a small touch surface and a rotating head for navigation. Such a ring is expected to become part of Apple's ecosystem. The patent says that devices with screens can not always be used, and in some cases, it is even dangerous. For example, when something threatens the user's life, he can discreetly send an SOS signal using a ring on his finger. In addition, thanks to the vibration, it will not allow you to miss an important call or message. It is assumed that with the help of the ring it will also be possible to control an iPhone or iPad without having to take them in hand. So, swipes on a small touch panel, you can scroll through lists or perform other actions. In addition, it is possible to communicate with Siri through the ring. Note that Apple is not the first company to experiment with such a gadget. Not so long ago, the Amazon Echo Loop was introduced - a smart ring with an integrated Alexa voice assistant.
  13. September 19, the day before the official launch of sales of iPhone 11, Apple released the final version of the mobile operating system iOS 13. But despite a number of new features, the latest version caused a number of complaints from users and application developers. A well-known insider and application developer, Steve Troton-Smith, shortly after the release of the thirteenth version of iOS, said that such a bad release of OS Apple he could not remember since the release of iOS 8, which debuted in 2014. Judging by the numerous reviews on the Internet, difficulties were encountered not only by application developers but also by general users. The list of various bugs is constantly updated with new ones that users write about on social networks and the microblogging service Twitter. Among the problems of iOS 13, the most frequently mentioned are: Failure to restore a backup from iCloud Ability to access contacts from a locked display Arbitrary switching between light and dark themes Application freezes Volume Control Bug Error connecting to Wi-Fi hotspot Difficulties with the function of auto-correction Bluetooth issues Those who have already upgraded to iOS 13, advise other users not to rush to install the update. As a temporary solution, participants in public beta testing are recommended to install the beta version of iOS 13.1, in which Apple has already managed to fix bugs or wait for tomorrow's release of the final version of the update.
  14. Apple has announced the official release of the latest version of iOS 13 for supported iPhone models. The mobile OS has acquired the long-awaited dark design mode, new ways to view and edit photos, confidential authorization on web resources and a redesigned map service. Dark mode design - The new color scheme is automatically applied to the entire system and regular applications. The mode is available to third-party developers for integration into their own applications and can be scheduled for automatic inclusion at sunset or at a certain time according to a schedule. Speed of work - Apple claims that iOS 13 has become significantly faster thanks to optimizing the OS itself and reducing the size of application packages. Declared and an increase in the response speed of Face ID sensors for supported device models. New gallery and the Camera app - Using machine learning on the device, the “Photos” application creates a library to highlight the best images of the past day, month or year. Another innovation was the automatic video playback function, and in the camera application for some iPhone models, there were additional settings for taking photos, including new filters and effects. Sign with Apple function - Instead of using a social network account or creating a new password, iPhone users can simply use their Apple ID for authentication. Even in cases where developers prefer to request a name and email address, users can keep their email address secret and instead provide a unique random email address. Signing in with Apple makes it easy to authenticate users using Face ID or Touch ID and has built-in two-factor authentication. New version of Safari - Siri offers and links to selected and frequently visited resources appeared on the updated browser start page. For individual sites, individual font size adjustment and the ability to view the full version of the page are provided. Updated Apple Maps - The new application interface with more detailed information has received new features that make it easy to share the location of restaurants, travel destinations or shops with friends. There was also a menu item "Favorites" for navigation on frequently used routes. Among other innovations are a standard swipe keyboard and a more realistic assistant voice Siri (in English), a redesigned quick command system, a new file manager, new privacy settings for geolocation services and other changes, a full list of which can be found on the official Apple website. iOS 13 is already available for download on all iPhone models, starting with 6s/SE and later, as well as iPod Touch 7th generation multimedia players.

  15. In this release of Insider information: OPPO registered names for 13 smartphones at once; Weibo accidentally revealed the existence of an 8K TV from Xiaomi; Google Play Pass is already advertised on Twitter; Kospet Prime - Android-watch with NFC and a huge battery; Apple continues to work on a flexible smartphone. OPPO registered names immediately for 13 smartphones Earlier this year, OPPO announced the closure of the flagship R line, but presented several Reno devices at once and continued the popular Find series. The company also received certification documents for Find Y devices, which may be the first to receive a front camera hidden under the display matrix. Now it became known about work on 13 new OPPO Z smartphones. Trade names were obtained on 2Z, 3Z, 4Z, 5Z, 6Z, 7Z, 8Z, 9Z, 10Z, 20Z, 30Z, 40Z and 50Z. All names belong to category 9: “mobile phones, smartphones, mobile software, headsets, battery chargers”. Technical details of new products are not reported. In the near future, we expect the availability of OPPO Reno Ace. He will get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus, a 6.6-inch Full HD + screen, a 4000 mAh battery with fast charging and 12 GB of RAM. Weibo accidentally revealed the existence of an 8K TV from Xiaomi September 12, on the eve of the Mid-Autumn Festival in China, actor Huang Qanqan came to the Xiaomi Mi TV development office with gifts for employees and took some general photos. The pictures were published on the official Weibo account and did not attract attention with something outstanding, but sharp-sighted visitors to the social network noticed on the monitor of one of the employees a mention of 8K resolution. The shot shows the office of the Mi TV division, and many regarded it as a hint at the appearance of a Xiaomi TV with a resolution of 8K. The current Xiaomi Mi TV shows in 4K. The gadget can be presented on September 17 in India. Google Play Pass already advertised on Twitter Google Play Pass - a monthly subscription to all premium games in the Google Play app store - is already being advertised in the official service account on Twitter. It is claimed that she will debut very soon. With such a subscription, users get access to games without ads and in-app purchases. The expected cost of a family subscription is $ 4.99. An obvious competitor will be Apple Arcade. Kospet Prime - Android watch with NFC and a huge battery Apple is the obvious leader in the watch market in the world, occupying 50% of the market. Apple Watch Series 5 presented on Tuesday will only help strengthen the position. On the Android market, the situation is much more complicated, and far from always, users can choose a decent accessory. The Kospet Prime smartwatch will be on sale the other day. The novelty compares favorably with all competitors in several details. Kospet Prime will receive NFC for fast synchronization with a smartphone and wireless payment for goods and services in stores. Unlike many smartwatches, the Kospet Prime has a 1260 mAh battery with wireless charging capability. According to official information, the watch works up to three days in active mode or up to seven days in standby mode. The watch is equipped with two 8 megapixel cameras to take photos and videos. In addition, it supports unlocking the system using face recognition. The front panel is a large 1.6-inch AMOLED display. The processor model is unknown but paired with it 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory are installed. How much such a watch will cost is unknown. Apple continues to work on a flexible smartphone Since 2011, the apple company has been working on a smartphone with a flexible or folding case. The first rumors about him appeared on the network in 2013, and the other day on the network appeared patents marked with 2017. There are five documents in one way or another describing such a device. The new patent mentions several important elements at once: a flexible display, a control circuit, a hinge, a compression and force sensor, and an application switching circuit for compressing the case. In other words, Apple can test new ways to interact with the interface. However, until the end of the development process, the company's plans may change repeatedly. According to insiders, it is not worth waiting for a flexible iPhone until 2020 or 2021.
  16. In future iPhones, not only a new design is expected, but also the appearance of a sub-screen fingerprint scanner. However, as it became known, Apple is working on a completely new way of biometric identification for their devices. This is evidenced by one of the latest patents of the company. The Apple patent describes a method for identifying a user's identity in the palm of his hand. The technology works on a similar principle with Touch ID in the company's smartphones and tablets, only instead of the finger pattern, the unique structure of blood vessels in the palm of your hand is scanned. According to the description of the technology, the screen of a mobile device should consist of several layers and a photodiode. The latter emits infrared light, with the help of which the network of veins of the palm is determined. To increase accuracy, scanning also occurs using visible light. The patent also says about the possibility of using the Face ID system, which would further increase the reliability and accuracy of recognition. A new biometric identification method can also be used to monitor user health. For example, a vein scan reveals edema, blood clots, or other health problems. Interestingly, scanning can take place even while using the device and performing various tasks on it. As usual, the appearance of such a patent does not guarantee that Apple will incorporate this technology into its products in the near future. Recently, however, the company has been paying much attention to the health of users, especially in the Apple Watch, so the appearance of a new function is quite possible.
  17. September 10, at the Steve Jobs Theater (USA, Cupertino) will be a presentation of Apple. The most important announcement of the event will be a new generation of apple gadgets: iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. We collected all the rumors and leaks in order to understand on the eve of the premiere what the new smartphones are. Positioning models and names It is expected that Apple will introduce three new products at once. iPhone 11 will be an alternative to the current “budget” iPhone XR, iPhone 11 Pro will replace the iPhone XS, and for fans of large displays, the company has prepared a new iPhone 11 Pro Max. Design Apple has long changed the cycle of radical renewal from a two-year, as it was during the presentation of the iPhone 4/4s and iPhone 5/5s to a three-year. Given that only two years have passed since the appearance of the "frameless" iPhone X, the upcoming presentation from Apple does not expect smartphones with a completely new design. The front face of the iPhone 11 will get a minimum of changes. There is information that Apple managed to make the sensor face recognition TrueDepth and front-end modules earpiece, camera and sensors light smaller, therefore the "cutouts" on the display can become less. The back of the case will receive changes only in the camera area. Instead of a double module, Apple will install a triple in the form of a protruding square area. The heir to the iPhone XR, the iPhone 11 model, is waiting for a dual camera, also taken out on a square “island”. Hardware keys, placement of the charging port and speaker grilles - all these elements will remain in their original places. Of the cosmetic changes - the "move" of the Apple logo to the center of the back panel of all smartphones. Display In terms of displays in new models, most likely, it will do without any innovations. The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max will have OLED matrices with diagonals similar to current models - 5.8 and 6.5 inches, respectively. But the company can still refuse the 3D Touch function in connection with the desire to reduce the cost of the already expensive display modules. iPhone 11, according to one version, will receive IPS-display with the same resolution 1792х828 pixels, but generation Liquid Crystal. Changes can affect the color quality and energy efficiency of the matrix. Dimensions Given the previous diagonal screens and the lack of redesign as such, the dimensions of all three models will remain almost the same. The presence of a triple and double camera can affect only a few grams of excess weight. It can also be affected by new batteries with increased capacity. Due to the changes that will affect the main camera smartphones, use the old cases with the new models, will not work. Autonomy One of the large-scale leaks indicates serious changes in the battery capacity of all models. So, the iPhone 11 can get a 3110 mAh battery (against 2942 mAh from the predecessor), the iPhone 11 Pro - 3190 mAh (against 2658 on the iPhone XS) and iPhone 11 Pro Max - 3500 mAh (against 3174 mAh on the iPhone XS Max). Support for wireless charging remains. This year, all three devices can finally count on support for fast 18-watt charging. It is assumed that the power supply unit of the appropriate capacity will be part of the set of new smartphones, and Apple will still refuse from the obsolete “charger” of 5 volts and 1 ampere. This accessory has been haunting all the company's smartphones for 12 years. Cameras The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max await triple main cameras. The resolution of each of the sensors will be 12 megapixels, and the installed optics will become the key difference between the modules. According to sources close to the Foxconn plant, their main feature will be combined shooting. The algorithm for capturing photographs in new Apple smartphones will consist of taking nine pictures at once (three from each module) at the moment of pressing the virtual “shutter” with their further combination to obtain the best photo quality. Apple did not ignore the improvement in the quality of shooting in low light conditions, and also seriously took up the post-processing of photos - the Smart Frame function may appear, which allows you to crop pictures without loss of quality. There is an option for the appearance of the background change function in Live mode when taking pictures. Improved camera capabilities will go to the flagship models: iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The dual-camera iPhone 11 certainly will not have all the functionality available to top devices. Performance All three new Apple smartphones, without exception, will receive the latest A13 chip. Judging by previous leaks and the publication of performance results in the Geekbench test, a six-core processor with a clock frequency of 2.66 GHz will be much faster than its predecessor. The company will allocate 4 GB of RAM for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models, and 6 GB for the flagship iPhone 11 Pro Max. The principle of the proprietary iOS operating system allows the company not to chase the amount of RAM. Other features Of the less dramatic changes (or their absence), the following should be noted: Apple Pencil stylus support for iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max; improved Face ID scanner operation algorithm with a wider coverage angle (the ability to unlock from the position when the smartphone is on the table); lack of USB Type-C in all three models; lack of support for fifth-generation 5G networks; lack of Touch ID; the appearance of new colors, including gradient ones. Otherwise, the upcoming announcement can be seen as a presentation of smartphones that closes the three-year update cycle. Apple’s “revolutionary” gadget should be expected only in 2020. Prices There is speculation that Apple will continue the good tradition of maintaining the value of new devices. Judging by one of the insider reports, the pricing policy for the company's new smartphones will be as follows: iPhone 11 - from $ 749 iPhone 11 Pro - from $ 999 iPhone 11 Pro Max - from $ 1099
  18. Unlike the iPhone, the Apple Watch does not have biometric sensors to recognize its owner. According to the company's new patent, the situation may change soon: the identification system developed for a smart accessory is not only highly reliable but also versatile. The company plans to embed protective sensors not in the gadget itself, but in its strap. A published document describes an IR sensor placed in a watch strap that creates a heat map of the wrist. It remembers the texture of the skin and the location of the hair on the arm - these “passport data” are unique to each person. When using a new type of authentication, future generations of Apple Watch will automatically recognize their owner, without requiring a PIN to unlock the screen. Another extraordinary patent application resonates with smart Nike sneakers with an automatic lacing system . Apple offers a similar solution, but for a smartwatch bracelet. If the device detects that it is not too tight against the wrist during exercise, the strap will automatically tighten more tightly. The latest application related to the straps for Apple Watch was a patent for the possibility of equipping an accessory with an LED indicator to demonstrate incoming notifications without turning on the display. One or more LEDs can inform the user about the daily progress in the number of steps taken or change their color when receiving emails, messages, or the appearance of missed calls. The estimated date for the implementation of Apple's patent applications in the form of off-the-shelf devices is unknown.
  19. In anticipation of the imminent presentation of the new iPhone, Bloomberg, citing data from its own sources, has published details of upcoming Apple products. In particular, reporters talked about previously unknown features of the iPhone XI, the next generation of iPad Pro tablets, the new AirPods and the Smart HomePod. Bloomberg confirmed the rumors that the heirs of iPhone XS and XS Max will receive the prefix Pro in the name. The main change will be a triple camera with a new ultra-wide lens. It is reported that smartphones will be able to simultaneously shoot three frames for each camera, and then combine them into one picture with a higher resolution. In addition, the stated improvement in the quality of shooting in low light. Users will also be able to crop and crop ready-made photos without losing important details. This function will be called Smart Frame. The report also says that the new iPhone will significantly improve the quality of video recording. According to the reporters, iPhone XI Pro could be right while shooting to apply different settings for editing, added in iOS 13. Regarding the appearance of gadgets in Bloomberg noted that some of the colors of the upcoming iPhone will get a matte finish, as previously reported. The successor of iPhone XR will get a new green color of the case. Water-resistance will also be improved. Face ID facial recognition system in the new iPhone will be improved. Reporters promise a wider viewing angle, so users will be able to unlock even lying on the table in front of them a smartphone. In addition, Face ID can be triggered from different angles. According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on new tablets. The publication reports that the new iPad Pro will receive the same triple camera system as the iPhone XI Pro. The usual 9.7-inch iPad will be replaced with a new 10.2-inch model. Reporters also confirmed the development of new AirPods with water protection and noise reduction function. In addition, Apple is expected to release next year a more affordable version of the smart speaker HomePod with two tweeters instead of seven, as in the current version. Recall that the presentation of the new iPhone is expected on September 10.
  20. Despite Apple's assurances that the iOS operating system is resistant to hacking, the hackers managed to create an up-to-date version of "pirated" firmware for Apple smartphones and tablets running iOS 11 and 12 - for the first time in several years. The working version of the jailbreak has already been published in the public domain. A user under the pseudonym Pwn20wnd developed a jailbreak that works with all current Apple smartphones. The program works with iOS 12.4 as well as with other versions below iOS 12.3. Some users have already posted a confirmation of the tool's functionality on Twitter. According to available information, hackers managed to find a "hole" in the protection of the firmware, which again opened with the release of the latest version of the mobile OS. Google security experts from the Project Zero team have already reported the vulnerability to Apple. According to project employee ned Williamson, attackers can create "superior spyware" based on it. For example, an application with built-in malicious code can access data from other applications or system files to steal information. Apple has not commented on the hacking of iOS. It is expected that in the coming days there will be a version of iOS 12.4.1, in which the vulnerability will be fixed. iPhone users are advised to carefully download apps from the App Store prior to the release of the patch to avoid possible contamination of the device.
  21. Apple traditionally holds a presentation of new smartphones in the first half of September, but officially calls the exact date only on the eve of the event. This year, the company failed to keep the intrigue: the day of the announcement of new iPhones lit up right in the beta version of iOS 13. The source of the leak was the icon of the standard application "Calendar" — it marked the date September 10. It coincides with the early insider publications, so we can safely assume that Apple will hold a presentation on this day. Presumably this year the company will present three new smartphones, the names of which have already been revealed by an authoritative insider. The characteristics of the devices have also repeatedly appeared in the network. Two models will receive a triple camera and OLED-display, and the "budget" R-version will get a double module and IPS-matrix. The appearance of an unusual green color of the case in the line is also expected. The announcement of the presentation and invitation of reporters to Apple, according to a source, will hold at the beginning of September.
  22. Soon after the publication of the iFixit resource about the ban on Apple's self-replacement of iPhone batteries, users actively criticized the new policy of the vendor. Representatives of the Corporation made a statement in response and explained the reasons for the controversial decision. The company claims blocking battery monitoring should protect users from using damaged, low-quality or used batteries, which could potentially compromise the safety of the devices and their owners. Apple also noted that the recommendation to contact only branded service points does not affect the ability of owners to use their iPhones. However, the issue for the original battery that is installed outside the authorized service center for service. According to the iFixit report, a proprietary programmer is required for "correct" battery replacement. "Victims" of the annoying message were the owners of iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, running iOS 12 and IOS 13 beta versions.
  23. On the eve of the announcement of the iPhone 11 smartphone line, more and more detailed information about the design and capabilities of future new products appears on the network. The portal PhoneArena has published one of the largest leaks in recent years, declassifying not only the specifications of future Apple flagships but also the colors of the body, which debut ambitious devices. According to the publication PhoneArena, citing its own sources, the iPhone 11 will be built on the basis of the Apple A13 Bionic processor and will receive 4 GB of RAM in Pro-modification. The volume of built-in memory of new products will be 128, 256 or 512 GB in different configurations, the model with 1 TB will not appear before 2020. Despite the intention to get rid of Liquid Retina LCD displays, this year Apple will equip iPhone 11R with such matrix. All three new devices will retain a wide cutout for Face ID recognition sensor with increased response speed. The square camera module of the older versions of the iPhone with support for 4K@30 fps video recording will consist of three sensors, including a sensor with a wide-angle lens. Advanced microphones will allow you to record video with stereo sound, and the quality of portrait photography will increase thanks to the capture of the combined image from all three sensors and the use of new AI algorithms. The back panel of smartphones will be made of frosted glass in combination with a gradient effect in some colors. In addition to the gray and silver versions, insiders predict the appearance of a dark green iPhone and a change of the Golden version. Regardless of the color of the case, out of the box, all models will receive a set of branded Wallpaper, the structure of which will be suitable for operation in both light and dark design mode. Announcement of the updated line of Apple iPhone is expected in September this year.
  24. Owners of MacBook Pro will have another unpleasant surprise. Shortly after Apple acknowledged defective large shipment of laptops to "boycott" the problematic models and joined the airline. A number of carriers banned carrying laptops with "bad reputation" on Board the aircraft. The Federal Aviation Administration of the United States has sent a warning to air carriers about the possibility of ignition of the models of laptops specified in the Apple report. According to the vendor, models released in mid-2015 are at risk of self-ignition. According to the publication SlashGear, today there are already 26 proven cases of fire. Us regulators have banned problematic MacBook Pro models from being transported by air. The only exceptions are instances that have already undergone the battery replacement procedure at an authorized Apple service center. However, it is not yet known how to determine the suitability of such laptops for air travel.
  25. At the annual Black Hat Security Conference in Las Vegas, Apple made an important announcement regarding the reward system for finding vulnerabilities in its products. If previously the company paid for the work of only invited specialists, now it is ready to cooperate with everyone. In addition, the amount of rewards has grown significantly. Unlike other IT companies, Apple has previously offered rewards only to specially invited information security experts who, at the request of the Corporation, were looking for vulnerabilities in its devices and cloud storage systems. Now, anyone who discovers a gap in the "Apple" products, can count on a solid monetary incentive. The size of the reward depends on the seriousness of the identified weaknesses in the security system. The company is ready to pay $ 1 million to anyone who will be able to get remote access to the core of the iPhone without any action from the owner of the device. According to Apple, this is the most critical vulnerability in modern gadgets. Previously, the company's largest payment for finding errors was $200,000. In addition, from now on Apple will pay for the found gaps in macOS. According to macOS security expert Patrick Wardle, the Corporation was wise to expand the rewards program. Before that, many experts accused the American company of refusing to pay for the vulnerabilities they discovered. This often encouraged hackers to sell information about weaknesses in Apple's firmware and services to attackers and authorities, or even use it for nefarious purposes. An example is an Israeli company NSO Group, which sells tools for hacking servers Apple, Google, Microsoft, and other companies.
