iPhone 15 Pro specs set for improvement

With consumer electronics taking so long to produce, it should come as no surprise that details for the next iPhone are available. And it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that the specs will collide. And it’s no surprise that the iPhone 14 Pro’s narrow 6GB limit has been expanded up to 8GB:

TrendForce expects that the 15 Pro models will come with 8GB of more RAM to complement the A17 chip, compared to 6GB for the iPhone 14 Pro models. Standard models will likely continue to get 6GB of RAM. “

USB-C Receiver for iPhone

This may not be the only big change coming to the iPhone 15. According to legislation in the European Union, Apple will have to ship at least one version of the iPhone 15 with USB-C instead of a lightning port so that it can be sold in Europe…although This may not force a change to the entire portfolio:

“…Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Vice President of Global Marketing, confirmed that Apple will follow a new EU law mandating the use of USB-C on all smartphones sold in member countries from the fall of 2024. But that may not be the end of the port. Lighting on iPhones.

Here comes Apple’s macOS 13

We may not have a new MacBook Pro (yet), but MacBook owners are getting an upgrade with the release of the next version of macOS, ready to install worldwide, after the usual post-WWDC testing period. What is noteworthy is not the leaps forward but the steps taken to homogenize the Apple ecosystem:

Significantly, the new features of macOS help keep up with what’s happening on the iPhone and iPad. And that feels doubly true on Ventura, where the platform app has been rewritten from the ground up to mirror its iOS counterpart, where window management is implemented in the same way. On the iPad, as new apps and updates to older apps are increasingly just iPad apps running inside macOS windows.”

Enjoy a big iPad and go

Will Apple increase the size of the iPad Pro lineup and offer a 16-inch tablet by the end of next year? There are certainly indications that such a device is being planned. As with any device, there are plenty of iterations, and not all of them make it to market, but if Apple wants your next PC not to be a PC but an iPad, a very large screen would be a great (if expensive) choice:

“Samsung stunned the industry earlier this year by announcing the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, a 14.6-inch tablet. It would have been a perfect replacement for a laptop had it not been for One UI, an operating system designed for smartphones. Turn on Samsung and a bigger iPad next year.According to a report by The Information, the 16-inch iPad will be launched sometime in the fourth quarter of 2023. The tablet could be revealed along with the 14-inch iPad Pro mentioned in the leaks. previous.”

Apple subscription prices skyrocket

Apple announced a price increase for users of Apple Music, Apple TV + and Apple One, citing licensing fees that must be paid to rights holders. Still, you have all your playlists, mood charts, and your favorite artists locked to Apple Music. You wouldn’t leave your curated menus behind for a little price hike, would you?

Apple cited the recent increase in licensing fees. Apple Music and its competitors will have to pay 15.35 percent of music revenue to songwriters and copyright holders starting next year, up 0.25 percent from the current rate and nearly 5 percent more than the previous price. But at 10.99 At $8.99, Apple’s service is now more expensive than Amazon Music, which is $8.99 a month, and Spotify, which has been stuck at $9.99 a month for more than a decade.”

Finally…

Apple’s fourth-quarter revenue report is here. It shows an eight percent increase in revenue year-over-year to $90 billion, with net income up 1 percent to $20.7 billion. Unlike other Silicon Valley results, Apple is keeping its ships steady:

Daniel Morgan, Senior Portfolio Manager at Synovus Trust Co. , of which Apple is among its biggest holdings: “Apple hasn’t been hurt as much as we were originally concerned about in terms of consumer demand.” “You can prove that consumer demand is sound based on these growth rates.”
