Week 23 Recap: Apple Brings iOS 16, M2 Chip, and New MacBook Air

Week 23 Recap: Apple Brings iOS 16, M2 Chip, and New MacBook Air

This week was Apple’s WWDC developer conference and we had a full event. As tradition dictates, Apple introduced new versions of its smartphone, tablet, computer and smartwatch platforms.

It all started with iOS. We haven’t received an always-on display announcement, which means Apple will keep it an iPhone 14 Pro exclusive for this fall. We did a big overhaul of the lock screen with the ability to change the date and time images, as well as move notifications to the bottom, making things easier to access and cleaner. The notifications themselves have gotten smarter.

Apple also introduced the M2, its second-generation ARM-based chipset. This is the base model that will power Apple’s entry-level machines like the new MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which got the processor as an upgrade.

The M2 is 18% faster in processing and 35% faster in graphics, all with the same 5nm process and low power consumption. The M2 has an 8-core CPU and up to a 10-core GPU.

The new MacBook Air features an updated design that finally removes the wedge shape introduced by the original Air in 2008 and replaces it with a new, flatter look. The new Air weighs 1.22kg and has a 13.6-inch, 16:10, 500nits display, M2 processor, and starts with 8GB of unified memory and 256GB of storage for $1,199/€1,499.

The Pixel 6a is back on the scene, this time through a listing on Facebook Marketplace. The listing is complete with pictures of the phone.

We now have a full review of the ZTE Axon 40 Ultra, the phone with a truly invisible under-display camera, a single 35mm main camera, good battery life and an outstanding design.

This will be the case for week 23. Until next time!

Notifications, Messages, Wallet, Maps, News and CarPlay have received updates.

The new MacBook Air supports MagSafe charging and up to 24GB of unified memory.

Three 64 MP cameras on the back and a massive 6.8-inch AMOLED screen hold great promise.

The device is expected to go on sale from July 28.

Could this be the HTC flagship phone we’ve been talking about for a long time?

It is based on a more advanced 5nm process and comes with two additional GPU cores.

The JR510 SoC inside the C40 is said to offer the Snapdragon 450/Helio G35 performance.

The company is still coy on details, but more details about its debut smartphone are expected soon.

iPadOS 16 also removes some older, very old devices, for example the iPad Air 2 from 2014. watchOS 9 requires iOS 16, which can cause problems if you have an older phone.

It is rumored to be a rebranded Redmi Note 11T Pro announced last month in China.

Neo 3T takes a Snapdragon 870 at the helm along with 80W fast charging and a 5000mAh battery.

The Watch 5 is expected in three sizes.

There are also improvements to the integrated mail app, as well as passkeys to replace passwords in Safari.

A phone worthy of a Shinobi warrior.

The device’s TUV certification reveals the phone’s charging adapter.

Rumored to be a version of the Redmi K40S.

The device will feature the iconic red Leica logo.

The smartphone debuts in India for INR 17,499 or around $210/€225.

It will be part of the company’s Note 12 lineup.

A fairly competitive mid-range offer.

It has a better camera than the Redmi, but the rest should be the same.

A provisional agreement has been reached between the negotiators of the European Parliament and the Council.

The SM8550 chip would feature a mix of new cores (Cortex-X3 and A720) and old cores (A710 and A510).

Both phones will soon be available in Brazil.

MacBook Air stole the show, iPadOS gets macOS functionality, and iOS 16 sees minor updates
