On paper, the iPhone 13 series does not seem to be a significant upgrade over the iPhone 12 lineup. However, once you look closely, you realize that Apple has made some meaningful improvements to the lineup.
Last week, Apple announced several new measures to prevent the spread of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM). In total, Apple announced three changes, but it has raised eyebrows with its approach towards CSAM detection. Basically, your iPhone will scan the photos uploaded to iCloud to check for CSAM.
Apple unveiled iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 at WWDC 2021 last week. The next major release of iOS comes with some major new usability features. The improvements might not seem like a big deal initially, but they do have a major usability impact.
Apple released iOS 14.6 last week with some minor bug fixes and enhancements. Many iPhone users hoped the update would also fix the battery drain and throttling issues that Apple seemed to have inadvertently introduced with the iOS 14.5.1 update.
The M1 iMac and the new iPad Pro lineup went on sale late last week in most markets across the world. The devices were first announced at Apple’s ‘Spring Loaded’ event in April and launched after being available for pre-order for three weeks.
The release of iOS 14.5 last month also marked the debut of App Tracking Transparency. Despite criticism from Facebook and other advertisers, Apple went ahead with the rollout of the feature. App Tracking Transparency will prevent iPhone apps from tracking you without your explicit permission.
Apple started accepting pre-orders for the 2021 M1 iPad Pro, 24-inch iMac, Apple TV 4K, and the Siri Remote last week. Which new product did you order from the company?
Ever since iOS 14 released, the jailbreaking community has been going through a lean phase with no activity from any developer. There’s an iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 jailbreak in the form of Checkra1n jailbreak but that only works with some older iPhones. There has been some activity in the jailbreaking community recently with the release of an iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 which could pave the way for a jailbreak for all iPhones.
Apple released the iOS 14.4 update for iPhones and iPads last week. The update fixed a number of bugs and security issues while also adding some minor new features. More importantly, though, a battery drain test seems to indicate that the update has seemingly fixed the battery drain issues that many iPhone and iPad owners were facing.
