News on the sidelines Week Mar 5 - Mar 11

The iPhone's under-screen camera is entering the development stage

From, Description: A blue phone on a blue background showing December as the focal point.

Apple is working with Korean suppliers to develop a new type of camera that can be hidden under the iPhone screen. This technology, symbolized by UDC, will allow for a screen to be provided on the entire front of the iPhone without a hole or hole for the front camera. LG Innotek is currently developing UDC technology and has already produced a sample for Apple, but it did not meet Apple's performance standards. LG Display is also working on improving this technology and aims to increase light transmittance to 40% by 2024.

It is expected that Apple will use this technology in the iPhone Pro for the year 2027. It has been said that it is possible that Apple will offer Face ID under the screen in 2025, and this is one of Apple’s plans to eventually provide an iPhone without ports.

Beeper Mini brings iMessage to Android without having to sign in with an account

From, Samsung Galaxy S10E, December News.

Those behind Beeper Mini, an app recently launched on the Google Play Store, claim that it allows Android users to send and receive iMessages with iPhone users, without the need for an Apple account. It works by turning regular text messages into blue bubbles, just like iMessage. This means you can reply to messages, link messages, share high-quality media, and group chat with iPhone users without them knowing you're using Android. The app does not access your messages or contacts, and its code will be made open source for greater transparency.

The application is now available on Google Store Play for a seven-day free trial, followed by a $2 monthly subscription.

One of the iPhone 15 screen manufacturers is experiencing major problems

From, a man takes a photo of several iPhones on display.

BOE, one of Apple's suppliers, is having trouble making enough OLED displays for the iPhone 15. As a result, Apple was forced to cancel its order for these displays. BOE was also supposed to manufacture screens for the iPhone 15 Plus, but it faced problems with light leakage around the dynamic island. It was originally expected to produce about 5 million iPhone 15 screens for this year, but due to delays and low production rates, it is expected to manufacture 2 to 3 million. For this reason, it is very unlikely that they will be able to make iPhone 15 Plus displays at all this year. Currently, Samsung is the only company that makes iPhone 15 displays and has a 91% market share. This means that Samsung Display may become the sole supplier of iPhone screens, strengthening its position in the market.

India wants one charger for all phones, but Apple disagrees

From, view iPhones in the Apple Store.

Apple has asked the Indian government to exclude current iPhone models from upcoming regulations that require all smartphones sold in the country to use a USB-C charging port. This comes in response to India's plan to follow the EU rule, which will mandate USB-C charging for all smartphones across the continent. Apple says applying this change to older iPhones will hinder its ability to meet local production targets set by the government, which could affect its business in India. The Indian Ministry of Information Technology is currently reviewing Apple's application.

Many iPhone users have reported a problem with the iOS 17 update that they encounter while typing, where the app switcher appears unexpectedly. This issue appears in different apps like messaging and notes apps and causes the app you are currently using to close. The bug appears to occur when users type quickly for a period of time, and it affects all versions of iOS 17.

Although Apple hasn't fixed the issue yet, there is a temporary solution: turn off the feature Reachability Which you use to pull down the screen, go to Settings > Accessibility > then turn off Reachability.

From iOS 11 introduces new features related to iCloud settings, providing users with more control over their icloud account. Stay up to date with the latest news and important information related to iCloud settings for December

This seems to stop the issue for most users, suggesting that it may be related to an unknown sensitivity issue in place of Reachability.

A signed check from Steve Jobs worth more than $35

From, check out Apple.

A check signed by Steve Jobs in 1976, when Apple was in its infancy, is offered for sale at Auction He has achieved approximately $35 “as of this writing.” The check, for $4.01 (four dollars and one cent), was filled out by Jobs on July 23, 1976, and shows Apple's address and the time it was in his parents' garage. The check is linked to RadioShack, which played an important role in the early days of technology.

From, a computer on a desk with important news displayed on the screen.

Wozniak reportedly spent some time wandering around RadioShack to buy a TRS-80 computer. He intended to use its components to make a device that was then called the “Blue Box,” a device that allowed free long-distance calls to be made “illegally.”

From, Steve Jobs and a man holding a remote control demonstrate innovation in December News.

Because of the manufacture of this box and these innovations, the partnership was formed between Wozniak and Jobs, so that they were able to make and sell nearly 200 boxes for $150 each. Jobs later told his biographer that without Wozniak's blue boxes, "there would be no Apple." Or in other words: Apple would not exist without the existence of the Raydushack store.

Miscellaneous news

◉ Apple today added the original iPhone SE to its list of old and outdated products. The first version of the iPhone SE was released in March 2016, which means seven years have passed since its launch. It also added the second generation iPad Pro 12.9 inches, as well as a special edition of Mickey Solo3 Wireless headphones.

◉ Apple has launched a new firmware update for the AirPods Pro 2 in its Lightning and USB-C versions. Apple usually does not mention what the new version contains, but it often contains general fixes and improvements.

◉ Starting with iOS 17.2 updates for the iPhone and the watchOS 10.2 update for the Apple Watch 9 and Ultra, Siri can access data from the Health app for health and fitness-related inquiries, and for the Apple Watch.

◉ The iOS 17.2 update will provide support for the next generation Qi2 wireless charging standard for iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 models.

◉ Apple has released the candidate versions of iOS 17.2, iPadOS 17.2, macOS Sonoma 14.2, watchOS 10.2, and tvOS 17.2 updates to developers. These updates are often the ones that precede the official release to the public, so we expect these new updates very soon.

◉ Meta will soon end the ability of Instagram users to chat with Facebook accounts. Starting in mid-December, you will not be able to message Facebook users from Instagram or see their activity status. Existing chats will become read-only, which means you can't send new messages, but you can still view previous chats. Meta did not provide a reason for the change, but it may be related to new regulations or a broader strategy to simplify its messaging platforms.

◉ With Apple and Goldman Sachs set to separate in the next 12 to 15 months, Chase Bank is likely to be the partner to take over Goldman Sachs' role, according to Bloomberg analyst Mark Gurman.

◉ Apple is making more efforts to develop 6G technology for future devices, according to Apple expert Mark Gurman. While it faces difficulties in creating its own 5G modem, it is hiring engineers and researchers focused on 6G technology. This indicates that Apple wants to be at the forefront of the next generation of cellular technology. 6G promises much faster speeds than 5G, but it won't be ready for consumer devices until around 2030.

◉ Zoom has released an app for Apple TV 4K, allowing users to make group calls on their TVs and iPhones or iPads via the Continuity Camera feature. The app quietly appeared in the tvOS App Store this week.

◉ A US senator has raised concerns about some governments secretly tracking smartphone users through push notifications. These notifications, which appear on your phone's screen, pass through Google and Apple's servers, giving governments access to information about the apps you use and how often you use them. Apple claims it was previously prohibited from discussing the matter, but will now be more transparent about such government requests. It is still unclear when this happened or which governments are involved, but they are believed to be allied with the United States. Experts advise developers to be careful about the information they include in push notifications to protect user privacy.
