The new Mac is here; The new iOS comes with the iPhone after this fall
Apple Inc. Has started its annual journey Global Developer Conference (WWDC) on Monday took an ambitious view of CarPlay’s future, and promised to buy from automakers, although the new features will actually take some time to get into the car. Apple shuts down the new Macs coming next month, the new iPad shows usability features and previews the new capabilities on iPhones this fall.
The annual assembly attracts the attention of millions of Apple developers around the world. Like other tech giants, Apple uses its developer events to meet the expectations of both the public and developers. Apple plans to release its fall operating system for its phones, watches, computers and other devices. The company has unveiled countless features and services.
Apple adopted WWDC Virtual in 2020 and 2021 to reduce the risk of epidemic infections. This year marks the return to a private WWDC, at least on a very limited basis. Although the WWDC course is available online for all registered Apple developers, it was at the company’s Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino this year with a select private event for the press, invited guests and lucky Apple giants who were able to score tickets. .
Apple has introduced many new technologies this week, but what Apple hasn’t introduced is probably worth noting: any new augmented reality (AR) headset or VR device. While Apple continues to work to improve the AR experience for users of its mobile devices, there are no Apple-branded headsets on the immediate horizon.
With that score, Ming Chi Chi Kuo, a popular Apple supply chain analyst at TF International Securities, whose best predictions have changed drastically in their accuracy, is that Apple will make some debuts next year.
More Apple for your car, but no Apple car
Apple’s new CarPlay implementation is certainly less of a solution to such non-existent, fully-stacked autonomous vehicles. Apple analysts are still leaning towards that windmill. But Apple’s new CarPlay implementation is certainly much more ambitious and fully accessible than Android Auto.
Currently, CarPlay is a bolt-on to vehicle entertainment system to provide an integrated and compatible iOS-style interface: plug your phone into your car And you go there, Music, directions and other apps are released through your car’s in-dash entertainment console. Apple claims that 98% of the new car models sold in the United States support CarPlay – in its current form. But Apple says the new CarPlay will reconfigure you Complete The dashboard works with sensors inside the vehicle to integrate more meaningful and important vehicle information.
Apple envisions this new version of CarPlay to provide “an integrated and consistent” across multiple dashboard screens, curated with a customized interface that can be personalized to the specific taste of the driver. CarPlay will be able to use vehicle data to display speed, fuel level, temperature and other key indicators.
Apple has introduced new CarPlay with countless other tent features coming to iOS 16 this fall. Don’t count it as an in-vehicle upgrade for your ’96 Saturn, though: Apple says there will be no cars compatible with this new technology. Announcement Until the end of 2023. Which apparently gives CarPlay app makers a year or more to get things done with the new technology, before people start messing with their custom dash designs.
New M2 Macs
Regardless of CarPlay’s future, Apple says the new Mac is coming next month. Apple has unveiled its second generation Mac computer around the company’s own Silicon. Apple, a longtime arm licensee, has created its own custom silicone for the iPhone and iPad. But over the years, Apple’s Mac computers have inherited microprocessors made by Intel and Intel and third-party graphics processing units (GPUs) from Nvidia and rival AMD.
That changed in 2020 when Apple launched the Mac based on its own CPU designs. The company has since transformed the Mac Line into an M-Series processor, which it says is more power-efficient than anything offered by Intel. Apple has unveiled new MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro computers based around the second-generation M2 chip, which it says is faster than ever, supports more memory and adds new features to the model it replaces.
Apple is building the M2 using a 5-nanometer fabrication process; Each chip contains more than 20 billion transistors, 25% more density than the M1. The M2 sports 100 gigabits per second (GB / s) of unified memory bandwidth, 50% more than a replacement chip. Apple will start selling new laptops at the same price as existing models from July, and has discounted the existing 13-inch MacBook Pro to make room for newer models.
iOS 16: Customization and privacy
Apple has loaded up the front of most WWDC displays around the new iOS 16 features, including details about the “lock screen” that appear the first time you tap your iPhone or iPad – Apple is investing resources to help reconfigure the lock screen and unveil new features. 16. Also the center stage is the “safety check.”
Security Check is a new privacy feature designed to protect victims of intimate partner violence by removing all access to others. Apple says it has worked with the Victim Advocacy Group to develop the new feature, which resets iCloud access, resets settings for messages and reveals privacy settings more easily to help users understand who and what gave them access.
Apple has mentioned the iCloud Shared Photo Library at WWDC as a convenient new way to share memories with family and friends. Specific goals include the ability to edit and recall recently sent messages, or even the ability to retrieve recently deleted messages. SharePlay is Apple’s FaceTime Screen Sharing Tool, and it also comes in messages. Apple says it will make it easier for messaging users to share synced content, such as movies or songs and shared playback controls.
Other new features include live foreign language and currency translation and a “visual look up” feature, “Apple Pay Letter” (a payment program that divides Apple Pay purchases into four equal payments and more).
IPad and Mac get new Paskey, continuity features
WWDC has given Apple the opportunity to release new versions of the operating system for its watches, iPads and Macs this fall. watchOS 9 offers an enhanced workout app, better sleep tracking, an atrial fibrillation (aFib) history feature and a new drug app.
MacOS Ventura is the new Mac release coming later this year. Apple is emphasizing new productivity features, such as Stage Manager, to better manage the clutter of many open apps. The company has also introduced new features between Mac and iPad to make it easier for users to switch between the two.
Apple received rave reviews earlier this year for its premium-priced $ 1,599 27-inch studio display for webcams, which users say produced very low quality images. Apple has offered a firmware patch that makes things better, but the truth is that Apple has made minor changes to Mac users over the years, including medium webcam optics, especially compared to the iPhone. So it’s appropriate, perhaps, that Apple solved the problem by fixing the iPhone. The “Continuity Camera” turns your iPhone into a Mac webcam.
Apple has also shown Passkey, which says it will run out of passwords. Paskey combines advanced digital encryption with Apple’s biometric scanning features: FaceID, for face recognition, and Touch ID, its fingerprint-swiping technology. The company says that the data is stored locally on the devices, so it cannot be hacked externally and is also resistant to social engineering hacking techniques such as phishing. The company does not claim that Paskey will completely eliminate password issues, but it certainly hopes it is a step in the right direction.
