Apple’s latest new iPhone 14/Pro series has added a new accessibility feature that allows the new phone to play a sound when it is turned on and off, similar to Mac’s iconic startup sound. The feature can be turned on or off in the iOS 16 settings.
However, this switching sound is only unique to Apple’s iPhone 14/Pro series, and other older iPhone models upgraded to iOS 16 do not have it. According to foreign media 9To5Mac, this limitation is due to the fact that the switch sound effect is not part of the operating system.
When the iPhone displays the Apple logo, the phone is in the boot loader Bootrom stage, and the switch sound is built into the boot loader and embedded in the A16/A15 bionic firmware, and the boot loader Bootrom is read-only and cannot be modified afterward. Therefore, Apple cannot add this switch sound effect to older iPhones before the iPhone 14/Pro series.
We have learned that Apple iPhone 14/Pro series users can manage the power on and off sound effects under “Accessibility” in the “Settings” app. Note that there seems to be a bug in the iOS 16.1 beta version, which cannot play the switch sound effect.

Lock Screen Customization: Samsung One UI 3.0 beta vs Apple iOS 16
Apple released the iPhone 14 series earlier this month, which includes the iOS 16 operating system. In addition, Samsung has made the One UI 5.0 operating system compatible with Android 13 available to eligible devices. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are now available with new lock screen customization and the Dynamic Island feature. On the other hand, One UI 5.0 beta 3 includes lock screen customization for Galaxy S22 series users.
Meanwhile, the Smart Island feature has been made available to Android users via third-party applications such as dynamicSpot, and it is fully functional on Android devices. The lock screen customization, on the other hand, has arrived for Galaxy S22 users with the One UI 5.0 beta update and is very similar to the iOS 16 lock screen customization.
According to Twitter tipster TechDroider, the custom Samsung lock screen process in the One UI 5 Beta 3 system is similar to Apple’s iOS 16. Samsung currently offers five different clock styles, whereas Apple offers eight. The user can also change the color of the clock in both operating systems.

We discovered that when it comes to adding new wallpapers, both operating systems offer background collections that are highlighted in a similar manner. While Apple provides both built-in and third-party widgets, Samsung currently only provides widget icons for notifications.
Following the release of the iPhone 14/Pro series, Samsung mocked Apple for being out of touch with the concept of folding screens, large-pixel cameras, and so on.

iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max users facing restart problems while charging
Apple recently released four new devices into the market: the iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max. But now, users of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are reporting that the device restarts automatically when they plug it into the charger.
Some Apple iPhone 14 Pro users have reported that the iOS 16 battery drains quickly, but this may not be the most serious issue. Some customers are now reporting that when charging via MagSafe or Lightning, their iPhone devices restart intermittently.
Some users complained on Reddit that the iPhone 14 Pro was randomly restarting while charging. This problem has been present for 8 days, and it includes charging with a MagSafe or Lightning cable.
Another user stated that the iPhone 14 Pro Max running iOS 16.0.1 restarts every 10-20 minutes while charging. We learned that some other people have reported that the problem persists even on iOS 16.0.2 or iOS 16.1 Beta.
According to one user, “This only happens when the battery is charged at 90-95% (especially 93%) and the phone is idle. So far, the only thing that can be done (as of now two late without reboot) is to disable background app refresh.”
Those experiencing this issue should return their iPhone within 14 days and purchase another or request a replacement at your local Apple Store.

Apple said that the iPhone maker is “excited to produce the iPhone 14 in India”
According to a Reuters report, today, Apple said that the iPhone maker is “excited to produce the iPhone 14 in India”.
To diversify the supply chain and avoid over-reliance on China, it is reported that Apple is planning to move a quarter of iPhone production to India by 2025. Analysts at JP Morgan said last week that they expect Apple to move around 5% of iPhone 14 production to India by the end of 2022.
Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said via Twitter earlier this month that the mass production progress of the iPhone 14 in India this year is still about 6 weeks behind China, and has generally been behind by a quarter or more in the past.
Apple first started producing the iPhone, the iPhone SE, in India in 2017. In April, Apple announced that it had started production of the iPhone 13 smartphone in India. Previously, some iPhones were assembled at Foxconn’s local factories, while others were assembled at Wistron’s factories.
In addition, Bloomberg revealed earlier this month that Tata Group, a leading Indian company, is in talks with Taiwanese supplier Wistron, hoping to establish a joint venture to assemble Apple’s iPhones in India.
