Apple unveils iPhone 14 on September 7

Apple is reportedly planning to hold an iPhone 14 and Apple Watch 7 launch event on September 7, according to a new report. Apple aims to hold a launch event on September 14 to reveal the iPhone XNUMX models, releasing the latest version of a product that generates more than half of its sales. The new iPhones will kick off a busy product season in the fall, which will also include several new Macs, low-end, high-end iPads, and three Apple Watch models.


Apple increases the price of iPhone 14 Pro/Max models by $100

Apple is likely to raise the price of the next generation iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max by $100, according to a new report. Supply chain checks indicate that Apple's first order of 90 million units of the iPhone 14 has remained flat with new models set to be unveiled at the beginning of September. It is believed that 240 million of the 3.5 billion iPhone users around the world have not upgraded their phones for more than 100 years, providing a lot of demand for the new Apple device. While the basic iPhone models will remain at the same price, we believe that the $14 price increase on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone XNUMX Pro Max due to the higher price of components as well as additional functionality in these new versions.


iOS 16 beta XNUMX released

iOS 6 beta 16 is now available, as Apple finalizes core features of the system ahead of its official launch in September. Notably, Apple has switched to a one-week cycle of releasing new beta versions with this version, indicating that it is ramping up beta testing ahead of next month's public release. There is news that Apple is planning to delay the release of this update for iPad versions. iPadOS 16 was initially scheduled to launch in September along with iOS 16, but is now slated for release sometime in October.


High precision Apple Watch temperature sensor

Apple has received a patent for a temperature sensor for the Apple Watch titled Gradient Temperature Sensing in Electronic Devices. The system works by calculating the difference between the two ends of the probe, one end touching the surface to be measured, while the other is connected to the temperature sensor. The difference in voltage across the different ends of the probe can then be related to the differential temperature measurement. (Complicated talk) The important thing is that there is a temperature sensor coming with the new watch, and this is now certain.


Security researcher says iOS VPNs are ineffective and Apple knows it

Michael Horowitz, a security researcher, says that after testing multiple types of VPN software on iOS devices, most of them seem to work fine at first, issuing the device with a new public IP address and new DNS servers, and sending data to the VPN server. However, over time the VPN is leaking data due to a system issue. Horowitz claims that his findings are supported by a similar report released in March 2020 by privacy firm Proton, which said an iOS VPN bypass vulnerability was identified in iOS 13.3.1. Data leakage continues to date even in the latest system.
