Apple fights iPhone 5G issue, surprises iPhone SE decision, thwarts MacBook Pro delay

Taking a look at another week of news and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop includes the iPhone 15 5G battle, more iPhone wi-fi problems, iPhone SE specs leak, disappointing MacBook Pro delay, iPad Magic Keyboard review, U2 nightmare recall and success Union in Scotland.

The Apple Loop is here to remind you of some of the many discussions that have taken place around Apple over the past seven days (You can read the weekly summary of Android news here on Forbes).

iPhone 15’s 5G Battle

This might not be the most attractive part of the package, but without a 5G modem, your iPhone’s connection will be a little better than the retired iPod Touch. Apple has been using Qualcomm lately, although it is working on its own 5G modem. Widely expected to be iPhone 15-ready, Qualcomm itself has indicated that its modem will power the vast majority of iPhone 15 models:

Qualcomm told investors it will continue to supply the ‘vast majority’ of modems for the Apple iPhone 15 lineup in 2023. The company said it previously expected to supply only 20% of iPhone 5G modems by this time, given Apple’s ambitious roadmap for private 5G modems. it out”.

iPhone users are experiencing connection problems

Apple is still battling a slew of issues with iOS 16. The latest update to iOS 16.1 was supposed to have hoped to address them, but unfortunately, the latest iPhone OS still causes pain for many users:

“Based on what users share, they say their iPhone turns off periodically and sometimes randomly throughout the day, even though there are no changes in their environment. Other users say that their iPhones will sometimes disconnect from Wi-Fi when left static. In standby mode, like overnight. Some users have tried resetting all network settings on their iPhones, but the reset seems to be ineffective.”

What size do you want the SE to be?

What screen do you want to see on the next iPhone SE? Maybe you should tell Apple because the company is still trying to choose between a 6.1-inch OLED, 6.1-inch LCD, or a smaller 5.7-inch LCD:

“[the iPhone SE will use the] The XR design was launched in 2018. This features a long notch across the top of the screen and a full screen design for the body. This means there is no home button to include the Touch ID sensor. Unless Apple is going to come up with a side-mounted option, the upcoming iPhone SE may be the first with FaceID. However, this screen is one of the big decisions that Apple still has to make.”

MacBook Pro delay

Apple’s October press release skipped any updates to the MacBook Pro, and faithful eyes turned to November in hopes of getting a new professional macOS laptop for Christmas. Sadly, while we may see the launch of the Apple Silicon-powered Mac Pro, it looks like next-gen laptops will be pushed back to 2023:

“Apple has had November releases for Macs before, quite often, and several rumors have indicated that the same could happen to the updated MacBook Pro… [the supply] The series is currently working to be on track for a 2023 launch, rather than a November or late 2022 launch.”

The iPad keyboard has been revised

So is the new iPad Pro (Browse here on Forbes), Apple’s family of “don’t call them tablets” watch the iPad pick up a new Magic Keyboard Folio case, offering both a case and detachable computer for $249, and Julie Clover reviews the new accessory:

“Anyone who wants to use a 10th generation iPad for writing emails, browsing the web, and other typing tasks might want to invest in a keyboard because it turns their iPad into a versatile Mac-like device that’s perfect for working at home or on the go. There are cheaper keyboards on the market. But Apple has built a lot of functionality into the Magic Keyboard Folio, which will make it worth the cost for some users.”

(Mac rumors).

The day music won’t die

That still brings some music fans in cold veins, but Bono—thanks to his newly published memoirs—remind everyone of the day U2’s Songs of Innocence album appeared in everyone’s iTunes catalog… and it stayed there no matter how many times I tried to delete it:

“Cook eventually came along and agreed to put a copy of the album in everyone’s iTunes account. People hated the album, the album wasn’t great, Bono apologized, and Apple eventually released a special tool to let people remove it. But less than a year later, Apple announced a service Apple Music streaming, and today it can be said that it is more a subscription organization than ever.”

(the edge).

Finally…

Employees of the Apple Store in Glasgow have succeeded in their quest to form unions. It is expected that this store will be the first among the Scottish stores to follow the path set up by Apple Stores in the United States, France and Sweden:

“In what union representatives have called a ‘historic moment,’ the Buchanan Street branch of the US tech giant will now be joining unions after workers voted overwhelmingly to represent GMB Scotland. After negotiations, Apple agreed to a voluntary vote after a vote A large number of its Glasgow workers have joined GMB.”
