New iPhone runs out, disturbing 5G errors, disappointing MacBook ZombieLoad Fix




<div _ngcontent-c14 = "" innerhtml = "

Looking back to yet another week of news and titles from Cupertino, this week Apple Loop includes new iPhone features in boring design, some color options, 5G modem problems, ZombieLoad's impact on macOS, iOS 12.3 details, App legal issues Store up and look at the Apple map.

Apple Loop is here to remind you of several of the many discussions that have taken place around Apple over the past seven days (and you can read my weekly sample of Android news here at Forbes).

New iPhone features packed in tired and dull design

Android users will note that many of the new features of iPhones from 2019, such as the Reverse Wireless Charge and the wide-angle lens, are already featured in leading Android devices. Apple may catch up with the specs, but in the fast-moving market for modern phones, the new iPhone will remain old and outdated, thanks to the preservation of all the distinctive features of the iPhone X design for 2017. Gordon Kelly of Forbes:

Bad news? Bloomberg confirms that all three iPhone models will really look identical to their predecessor's two-year design, except for their new bulbous square that will hold the rear cameras (yes, even on the dual iPhone XR2 lens). Apple also makes them "about a half millimeter thicker," but optimists will hope it means larger batteries.

But there will be more colors!

When you have a design that you are not sure about, the best way to address it is through a little color. As more and more manufacturers realize that fashion is as important as features, the new iPhones for 2019 can go back to the classic 5C and iPod color schemes. & Nbsp;Reports by Gordon Kelly:

On the reverse side to compensate for its strange camera style, Gurman says Apple will present two new colors on the iPhone XR line: lavender and green. They will replace the current blue and coral finishes, but although it is subjective, the mock-ups (below) suggest that the solution at best separates.

Problems of Apple 5G iPhone

Apple may have produced 5G Modems from Qualcomm – probably for iPhone 2020 phones – but 5G will create problems for Tim Cook's team for many years. Aaron Tilly from The InformationGoing all-in with Intel and having to go back to Qualcomm, Apple has weakened and provided the supplier with a key element of economic influence, as I said earlier this week:

Part of the modest pie saw Apple quit its legitimate fight with Qualcomm earlier this spring and negotiate a deal for 5G modems. Even with Qualcomm's power, it is unlikely that the iPhone family will see a 5G device announced by the end of 2020, and it may well be that significant volumes will not be available until 2021.
In the short and medium term, Apple is bound to Qualcomm in the next few years, and Tim Cook's team has almost no impact on 5G modem technology (Apple is unlikely to take Huawei's offer to deliver 5G modems). Although there are internal efforts to design a modem (in a similar approach to the system when designing chips for the Axx chips), they are not chosen to carry any fruit until 2025.

MacBook users face ZombieLoad

Apple turned tozombie loadingIn Intel chips for MacOS. The recommendation is to deactivate the "hyper-thread", but this has led to significant success. Roland Moore-Kohler has more,

Recently discovered approaches to microarchitecture data extracts (MDS) found in Intel Core processors dating back to 2008 should bring Apple, such as Google, to customers to ban the Hyperthreading function of the processors.

But when Apple puts it on a test, using public benchmarks and multi-threaded workloads, think about video encoding, for example – finds that there may be a significant drop in CPU performance.

Apple, Apple has not said what kind of Mac will suffer a similar performance drop, but we would risk to assume that this is perhaps one of the company's machines with a powerful multi-core processor and not a dual-core MacBook Air chip.

iOS 12.3 Available With Key Features Updated

The recently released iOS 12.3 update may have the usual bug fixes and security changes, but there are a number of new and improved features. & Nbsp;Adam Mills has the accents, including Apple TV modifications:

User interface changes include children's content, movies, TV shows, sports and children's content. You will also notice a new lower library, search and viewing bar now.

You still have the classic "Watch Now" and "Next" tab, but Apple has incorporated a brand new training-based recommendation engine that offers the content you'd like based on your preferences and review history.
The TV app has an entirely new "Channels" feature. Channels are subscription-based services that you can register and watch in the TV app without having to open another app.

The App Store legal case continues

An anti-trust case against the Apple App Store has suffered a vital hurdle because the US Supreme Court has announced that customers buy apps directly from Apple when using the App Store and are therefore entitled to sue antitrust (although the merits are justified) of their requests were not commented). & nbsp;Adri Robertson:

Apple says iOS users are technically buying applications from developers, and developers themselves are Apple App Store customers. According to an earlier legal doctrine, known as Illinois Brik, the "indirect buyers" of a product have no right to file antitrust cases. But in today's decision, the Supreme Court has determined that this logic does not apply to Apple.

The court is careful to note that this is an "early stage" of the case, so there is no determination whether Apple actually has an illegal monopoly in the App Store. But its decision could have greater implications for customers who want to sue any vendor for antitrust violations, and this sets the stage for a big fight between Apple and some angry customers.

Still in On the edge,

And finally…

The Apple card goes through testing, which means that a number of employees have received the credit card, probably for real tests. Thanks to Ben Geskin, we have our first look:

Some Apple employees get an Apple Card so I got these pictures, edited the name to protect the source and it also works as a watermark.
