Apple has released iOS 16, iPad 16, and watchOS 9 system and also released the first developer preview beta. Apple’s watchOS 9 update introduces several new watch face options: a “moon phase” watch face showing the relationship between the Gregorian and lunar calendars, which can be used in Chinese, Islamic, Hebrew, and other cultural contexts.
The “Joy” “Time” dial, a unique dynamic artwork created by Apple Watch in collaboration with artist Joy Fulton; a beautiful “Metropolis” dial that changes style when the user turns on the Digital Crown; and a completely redesigned “astronomy” dial, available new star map functions and cloud data functions. In addition, many existing watch faces have been improved.
Happy Hour is a fun, dynamic Apple Watch face with animated numbers designed in collaboration with artist Joi Fulton. Rotating the digital crown changes the background with animated confetti, and if you tap on them, the character reacts. You can choose to use a confetti background or a solid color background but without the complexity.
The Cosmopolitan is a classic Apple Watch face that changes style when you turn the Digital Crown. The custom-designed figures vary in style and weight and rotate into a pill when the wrist is down. Up to four complications can be added to the circular dial, and the colors can be customized.
“Astronomy” is actually an improved version of the original astronomical dial, but it’s been remastered to include a new star map and current cloud data based on your location. You can set the Earth, Moon or Solar System as the main view and customize the font. It supports two complications, turning the Digital Crown to fast-forward or rewind to see the moon phase/planet position for another day.
As for the existing watch faces, watchOS 9 adds enhanced and modernized complications, as well as some design updates. Portrait faces have depth effects for more photos, including cats, dogs, and landscapes, and Chinese scripts have been added to the California and Typograph dials.
Note:-watchOS 9 is available for Apple Watch Series 4 and later, but not Apple Watch Series 3
Apple iOS 16 adds support for Bluetooth eSIM transmission between iPhones
Apple released iOS 16, and iPadOS 16 systems, and has released the first developer preview Beta. iOS 16 introduces a useful new feature that allows eSIM transfer between iPhones via Bluetooth when setting up cellular service.
In the Settings app on an iPhone running iOS 16, tapping “Set up eSIM” brings up options to transfer the eSIM and its associated phone number from another iPhone via Bluetooth. To transfer an eSIM from another iPhone, Apple says to make sure the other iPhone is nearby, unlocked, Bluetooth turned on, and running iOS 16 or later.
The feature appears to be available in several countries, including the US and UK, but only on carrier-supported eSIMs. Given that iOS 16 was only released a few days ago and is currently in beta testing, carrier support may be limited for now.
Apple will also continue to offer the more traditional option of setting up an eSIM by scanning a QR code provided by the carrier.
An eSIM is a digital SIM that enables activation of a cellular network plan from a carrier without the need for a physical nano-SIM. The iPhone XS or newer offers a single eSIM, while all four iPhone 13 series models support dual eSIMs.
Apple M3 chip exposure: TSMC will use 3nm process, codenamed Palma expected in late 2023
According to Weibo blogger @Mobile Chip Daren, M3 is currently under design, the project code is called Palma, and it is expected to be taped out in 2023 / Q3, using TSMC’s 3nm process.
Semiconductor manufacturing company TSMC has increased shipments of its 5nm process technology family. It’s the most advanced technology in TSMC’s product portfolio, and the fab expects to move to the 3nm process later this year.
In April of this year, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg said that Apple is developing an iMac product equipped with the M3 chip, which will be released by the end of next year. In addition, he also said that the iMac Pro will still be released, and the release time may be later.
The information says that some M3 chips have four dies, which can translate to up to 40-core CPUs for these chips, while the M1 chips are 8-core and the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are 10-core.
Apple released the M2 chip today, and since then, the Apple chip designed and manufactured for the Mac has officially entered a new generation. Using the second-generation 5nm technology, the M2 chip brings another breakthrough in the industry-leading energy consumption ratio of the M1 chip.
The M2 chip also uses Apple’s next-generation graphics processor, which has up to 10 cores, two more than the M1 chip. Thanks to the larger cache and higher memory bandwidth, the graphics performance of the 10-core graphics processor is greatly improved, and the graphics performance is 25% higher than that of the M1 chip at the same power consumption level. Its performance at the highest level of power consumption is 35% higher than that of the M1 chip.
Compared to the integrated graphics processors of the latest PC notebook chips, the M2 chip’s graphics processor runs 2.3 times faster at the same power consumption level and requires only 1/5 of the former’s power consumption to reach its peak level of performance. Is. The high power consumption ratio of the M2 chip allows the system to achieve exceptional battery life while maintaining extremely low heat and noise, even when playing complex games or editing large RAW images.
Apple is reportedly launching a new web search engine
Rumors of Apple creating a rival to Google are nothing new, but they aren’t common either. Now, Robert Scoble has been detailing everything he thinks Apple is about to launch, from WWDC to next year’s big event, and reviving rumors of the search engine.
Scoble didn’t provide further details in his Twitter post but did say it was based partly on conversations with sources and partly on inference.
Earlier, Scoble had said that Apple would unveil its “VR-based Apple Glass” at WWDC22.
There is precedent for Apple to replace Google services, and it did, such as ditching Google Maps in favor of its own Apple Maps, though it didn’t start well.
Also, Apple does already have a search engine that supports Siri and Spotlight. So it doesn’t seem like a big deal for Apple to expand into a full universal search service to rival Google Search.
If Apple launches its own universal search engine for users, it could lose a fortune. It was previously reported that Google is expected to pay Apple $15 billion in 2021 to remain the default search engine on iOS. If accurate, the deal is equivalent to 15% to 20% of Apple’s annual profit in 2020.
At the time, it was suggested that Google pay the fee to avoid losing its share of the default search engine to Microsoft Bing.
