Once I say iPhone season is nearly right here, it is the reality. And that additionally means a flurry of latest rumors and experiences in regards to the upcoming subsequent greatest iPhone swirling about.
One of many greatest items of stories this previous week is that Apple could solely be bringing the A16 chip to the iPhone 14 Professional and iPhone 14 Professional Max fashions this 12 months. Which means the common iPhone 14, and supposedly the iPhone 14 Max, will nonetheless be utilizing the A15 chip that got here with the iPhone 13 lineup. So those that have been hoping to get the most recent chip this 12 months will probably need to go for the Professional collection, although the A15 is by no means sluggish for many customers.
I believe that is going to be an attention-grabbing flip for Apple, because it has by no means break up up the chips used within the “common” system versus the Professional fashions. Nonetheless, this could possibly be helpful for customers, as a result of once more, the A15 just isn’t sluggish by any means, and this is able to assist preserve the price of the bottom iPhone 14 decrease than the Professional mannequin. And with different rumors that the iPhone 14 Professional gadgets could have a 48-megapixel digital camera, it might make sense for Apple to solely put the A16 Bionic within the high-end iPhones, which can require additional processing energy. However that will additionally result in value will increase, along with different components like persevering with provide chain points. Apple does look like it’s focusing extra on the iPhone 14 Professional fashions versus the entry-level variations, which can make the usual iPhone 14 a disappointing improve for some. We’ll discover out for certain in just a few months, although.
And if you happen to’re hoping that utilizing two completely different chips is only a non permanent change, you is likely to be out of luck. It appears extra probably that Apple will proceed utilizing the newer chip for the higher-end Professional fashions, and that is simply the beginning.

A report from the July 4 weekend appeared to point that the Apple Watch Sequence 8 could possibly be coming in a third measurement, on prime of the 41mm and 45mm that already exists. Nonetheless, that report appears to have been shortly extinguished, as it appears that evidently the bigger measurement goes to be for a model new Apple Watch variant.
Maybe it is simply because I’ve small wrists, however I normally go for the smaller Apple Watch sizes anyway. I might somewhat not have one thing too giant and hulking on my wrist, particularly when it is the present form and type of the Apple Watch. However I additionally suppose that if the Sequence 8 got here in three sizes, it might simply make it more durable for folks to decide on, at the least not with out seeing them in particular person. I believe a bigger show would work greatest for many who have bother seeing the small display screen on the wrist, or those that are ceaselessly exterior or in “rugged” circumstances. However for most individuals, the sizes for the Apple Watch Sequence 7 and Apple Watch SE are simply wonderful and assist preserve the alternatives streamlined. A 3rd Apple Watch mannequin for the biggest show could be good for many who may have it. After all, then it simply will get extra difficult when somebody asks you what the greatest Apple Watch is.
Maintain your self and discover some distractions
It has been a considerably sluggish week for Apple, and actually, it has been a bit tough for lots of us mentally, with the whole lot that is been occurring on this planet. Generally, it is simply onerous to concentrate on simply the tech stuff, reality be instructed. I simply wish to remind you all that it’s best to undoubtedly take a while to deal with your self, whether or not that is simply turning off the social media for a day or week or no matter, and simply discover one thing else to distract your self with.
For me, after an extended hiatus from my Nintendo Swap, I’ve dived again into Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, which simply got here out, and am having a blast. After all, after not taking part in for nearly a 12 months, I’ve needed to re-learn learn how to play, however it’s conserving my thoughts off present occasions once I want a break.
