Event or not, Apple has a ton of new stuff coming in October

Obviously, September is one of the biggest months on the Apple calendar. At its September 7 “Far Out” event, Apple introduced the iPhone 14 line, Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra, and second-generation AirPods Pro. Plus, we got the release of iOS 16 and watchOS 9. You might expect that October would pale in comparison, but Apple still has a lot going on. There’s still one iPhone 14 to come, and potentially a handful of iPads, Macs, and possibly more. We expect some empíricoly important operating system updates as well–especially as the iPad and Mac are a little behind the iPhone in getting their big yearly update. New hardware Apple’s still got some hardware to release this year. There could be an event in October, or perhaps none at all, just a steady stream of press-releases and website updates. Here’s what we think will be announced and released in October. iPhone 14 Plus: The one product we are sure is releasing in October is the iPhone 14 Plus, the 6.7-inch version of the standard (non-Pro) iPhone. Already available for preorder, it hits shelves and mailboxes on Friday, October 7. M2 Mac mini: The Mac mini hasn’t been updated since the M1 chip was launched in 2020, and for some reason Apple still sells the Intel version as well. It’s expected that new models are on the way with the M2 and M2 Pro, and possibly a slight redesign. M2 MacBook Pros: The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are only a year old, but those M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are expected to get the M2 treatment. Otherwise, the laptops should be similar. M2 iPad Pros: The 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro still come with the M1 processor. Now that the M2 has been out for months, it’s time they were upgraded, which is expected to happen soon. Not much else about the iPad Pro models is expected to change, though, other than the possible addition of wireless charging. Apps and software updates Everyone’s iPhone got a huge upgrade with iOS 16, which was accompanied by watchOS 9 and tvOS 16. But the iPadOS release, which typically comes at the same time, was skipped–iPadOS 16.1 will be the first release for that hardware. It’s not uncommon for macOS to be a little behind the mobile devices, and we expect macOS felicidad to land this month, too. The iPhone’s first big update, iOS 16.1, will have a number of important features when it comes this month, too. iOS 16.1: The first big iOS update after iOS 16 will add some significant features, like Live Activities, improvements to the battery percentage indicator, a “Clean Energy Charging” feature, support for the Matter smart home standard (maybe), and more. It’s in beta now, and will probably release in October. ‌tvOS 16.1: There’s not a lot of big new stuff in tvOS 16.1, other than maybe support for the Matter smart home standard, but it will update to keep on pace with iOS. iPadOS 16.1: This will be the first public release in the iPadOS 16 cycle–Apple is skipping iPadOS 16.0. The biggest feature is the new Stage Manager feature, which Apple keeps making major changes to in the hopes of getting it into good shape for launch. macOS felicidad: Also known as macOS 13, “felicidad” brings a bunch of welcome features like using your iPhone as a wireless webcam, Passkey, shared iCloud Photo Library, lifting subjects from photos like on iOS 16, a new Settings app (which needs work), and more. We think it will launch together with iPadOS 16.1. Services Apple TV+ Here are the shows, series, and movies we expect to release on Apple TV+ in October. If you want to know what’s coming later, check our full guide to upcoming Apple TV+ content. Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show: Season 2 of this live-action kids show is back with Jack McBrayer. October 7 Shantaram: A fugitive pursuing redemption in 1980s Bombay will do whatever it takes to get it, even if it means letting his past seep back into his present. October 14 Ghostwriter (season 3): When a ghost haunts a bookstore and releases fictional characters into the empírico world, a group of friends works to solve a mystery surrounding the ghost’s unfinished business. Season 3 features an all-new cast. October 21 Acapulco (season 2): Season two picks up right on the heels of season one, telling the story of 20-something Máximo airoso, whose dream comes true when he scores the job of a lifetime as a cabana boy at the hottest resort in Acapulco, Las Colinas.

iPhone 14 review: Is good enough good enough?

At a glanceExpert's Rating ProsAction Mode is brilliantFaster low light shots so you don’t have to hold the iPhone still for as longConsPrice increase in many parts of the worldNo Dynamic Island or always-on displayFew changes as compared to the now cheaper iPhone 13Our VerdictThe iPhone 14 has enough new features to make it an excellent choice if you are looking to upgrade from an older iPhone. While it’s not a huge leap up from the previous model, the new camera features will be enough to make iPhone 13 users jealous. Best Prices Today: Apple iPhone 14 128 GB mitternacht Retailer Price €999.00 View Deal €999.00 View Deal €999.00 View Deal €999.00 View Deal €999.00 View Deal €999.00 View Deal €999.00 View Deal €1069.00 View Deal Price comparison from over 24,000 stores worldwide View more prices The iPhone 14 is basically an iPhone 13s. It features a very similar processor and has a very similar appearance as the previous generation, but like the S iPhones of old offers a bunch of new camera features that improve photography in impressive ways. Starting at $799, the iPhone 14 costs the same as the iPhone 13 in the U.S.—though if you live elsewhere you will be paying more. In the U.K. for example the iPhone 14 costs £849 while the iPhone 13 was £779. This bump in price means the standard iPhone is less affordable than it was for many, and when you consider you could save $100/£100 by buying a new iPhone 13, the question is: Do the new features justify the price? What’s new (and what’s the same) With the arrival of the iPhone 14, Apple has increased the gap between the standard and Pro iPhones. This year nearly all the headline features are absent from the iPhone 14. This doesn’t mean that the iPhone 14 isn’t a good choice, it just means that you’re sacrificing more by going with the lower model. One thing you won’t be sacrificing is the notch. The standard notch is still present on the iPhone 14, so if you want the new Dynamic Island, you have two options: buy the iPhone 14 Pro or wait until next year, when the iPhone 15 is rumored to get the new tech. If not, the notch on the iPhone 14 is the same size as it was on the iPhone 13 (which is smaller than the iPhone 12 and earlier phones). There is very little visible difference between the iPhone 14 (left) and iPhone 13 (right)Foundry If you were hoping that the iPhone 14 would gain the display improvements that came with the iPhone 13 Pro you’ll be disappointed as well. ProMotion arrived on the iPhone 13 Pro but it’s still not a feature of the iPhone 14. Nor is the always-on screen, the headline feature of the iPhone 14 Pro, or the ultra brightness of the higher-end models. Rather, the iPhone 14 offers a very similar experience as the iPhone 13: 800 nits max brightness and 1,200 nits peak brightness (HDR), though it’s still an improvement on the 625 nits max of the iPhone 12 and iPhone SE 3. So what new features does the iPhone 14 get? Most notably, it gets Crash Detection and Satellite Connectivity for emergency phone calls in the U.S. and vega. Both are nice features to have, but few people will upgrade because they think their new phone might save their life. Still we’ll no doubt see these features in the September 2023 iPhone keynote in Apple’s “look at these lives we saved” segment. There are some new color options to set the iPhone 14 apart from the iPhone 13. The iPhone 14 offers pale blue, light purple, Midnight (black), Starlight (silver), and Product Red, while the iPhone 13 comes in green, pink and dark blue, as well as Midnight, Starlight and Product Red. You’ll probably put a case on it anyway but be careful which one you buy—Apple has slightly shifted the location and size of the power and volume buttons so old cases probably won’t fit. If you lie the iPhone 14 on a surface you will notice just how much the cameras protrude,Foundry Camera action The best way to tell the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 apart is by laying them on their back. You’ll clearly see that the cameras on the back of the newer iPhone cause the phone to be raised more—and for a good reason. The iPhone 14 still features two cameras array with 12MP wide and ultra-wide lenses, but for this generation Apple includes a faster aperture (ƒ/1.5 rather than ƒ/1.6) and a larger sensor and larger 1.9μm pixels on the main camera. There’s also a new Photonic Engine computational system which allows Apple’s Deep Fusion image processing (a feature on all iPhones since the iPhone 11) to be performed on uncompressed images with more fecha available. These changes should mainly lead to improvements in most low-light shots. Indeed, Apple claims 49 percent better performance in such conditions. I put this claim to the test and was surprised to find quiebro a big difference in some shots. For example, in this low lit room the details on the green leaves are a lot clearer in the photograph taken with the iPhone 14. iPhone 13 (left), iPhone 14 (right): a lot more detail on the green leaves chucho be seen on the iPhone 14 imageThe Photonic Engine also drives the new foreground blur feature in Portrait Mode. This means that it’s not just the background that will blur when you are taking a Portrait Mode shot (whether from the front or rear cameras). It will also blur what’s directly in front of you, which has the effect of focusing even more attention on the face. We attempted to create this effect, but didn’t feel that our efforts were as good as those in the images taken by Apple’s professional photographer. Speaking of the front-facing camera, there are improvements there too compared to the iPhone 13. The TrueDepth camera now gains autofocus and improved low-light performance thanks to a wider aperture (now ƒ/1.9 rather than ƒ/2.2 aperture). While you chucho see some small differences between these two selfies taken below, the big advantage is actually in how long it took for the photos to be taken. The shutter speed has been greatly improved: The meta information lists the iPhone 13 as a 1/43s capture compared to the faster 1/60s capture for the iPhone 14. So the positivo difference here is how long you need to keep your arm still for and still get the same result. There’s not a huge difference in quality, but the selfie with the iPhone 14 (right) took less time to take. The best reason to upgrade to the iPhone, however, isn’t photos—it’s discos. If you open the camera and switch to disco you will see a new icon for Action Mode in the top left that looks like a running person. Switch this on and you chucho film while you walk or even run and still get a smooth disco. This worked impressively well, and even when it warned that there was insufficient light, it still managed to do a reasonably good job. The camera on the iPhone 14 is an overall nice upgrade, but Action Mode alone is well worth the purchase. Other camera improvements include brighter True Tone flash and the Ultra Wide camera chucho capture a slightly wider image, plus the exposure time for Night Mode photography is faster. Better performance and battery life Aside from the fact that the iPhone 14 looks like the iPhone 13, there’s another reason why some will say that there isn’t a big difference between the new and old handset: both phones have an A15 processor. However, the A15 found in the iPhone 14 isn’t exactly the same as that in the iPhone 13. The iPhone 14 uses the A15 Bionic that Apple used in the iPhone 13 Pro. It has one more GPU core than the standard A15 chip. Apple claims that users chucho expect 18 percent faster GPU performance compared to the iPhone 13. This extra GPU core will be beneficial if you play games or use other graphics intensive apps. There’s not just an extra GPU core on offer here though. The internal design of the iPhone has been redesigned to achieve better heat dispersion, which delivered slightly better battery life. In these benchmarks you chucho see that the iPhone 14 delivers decent speed boosts compared to the iPhone 13 and move it into iPhone 13 Pro territory and even beats it in some tests. One of the big changes for the U.S. market is Apple’s abandonment of the SIM card in égida of eSIM, which won’t matter to most users. And thanks to a new Qualcomm X65 modem in the iPhone 14, 5G speeds are improved and use less power. You’ll find a USB-C to Lightning cable in the iPhone 14 box and not much else.Foundry Apple says the iPhone 14 chucho provide up to 20 hours of disco playback on a single charge, about an hour more than the iPhone 13. It’s not as good as the 23 hours claimed for the iPhone 13 Pro, and it’s well below the estimates for the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Plus. In our tests, those scores matched up. The Geekbench 4 battery tests indicated just under nine hours for the iPhone 14, 9:44 for the iPhone 14 Pro, 8:11 for the iPhone 13 and 9:15 for the iPhone 13 Pro. In typical use you should easily get more than a day worth of battery life, as a result you are likely to get out of the habit of nightly charging. Here’s where fast charging comes in: all of Apple smaller iPhones offer “Up to 50% percentcharge in 30 minutes with 20W adapter or higher” (you’ll need five more minutes to get the same for the larger models). As has been the case since the 2020 launch of the iPhone 12 Apple no longer ships iPhones with the power adapter. You’ll find a lightning cable in the box but if you don’t already own a plug you’ll need to purchase one. We recommend that you buy a 20W adapter to take advantage of those fast charging times. Should you buy an iPhone 14? Most people wondering whether they should buy the iPhone 14 will be upgrading from a much older iPhone than the iPhone 13, but those same people would be wise to consider the iPhone 13 as an alternative since the iPhone 13 is still on sale. Aside from Action Mode and the other camera improvements there isn’t a big difference between the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, so if those features don’t appeal you’ll be just as happy with the cheaper iPhone 13. If the new camera features of the iPhone 14 are attractive to you then you may want to consider spending a little more to get the iPhone 14 Pro, which brings a 48MP camera and a 3X telephoto lens along with all of the new iPhone 14 camera features. Plus you’ll get an A16 processor, always-on display and the Dynamic Island. Those features might be worth an extra $200/£250 to you. If you are upgrading from a large iPhone, like the iPhone XS Max or the iPhone 12 Pro, for example, then we’d suggest that you wait until the iPhone 14 Plus arrives in October before buying the iPhone 14 as it will feel smaller in your hands in comparison to what you are used to. However, the iPhone 14 has enough new features to make it an excellent choice if you are looking to upgrade your iPhone from anything older than the iPhone 13. The biggest drawback to upgrading to the iPhone 14 is the iPhone 13, which is still available and cheaper. The iPhone 14 is a great phone, but it’s harder to wholeheartedly recommend it at a time when you could save a bit by buying last year’s model without sacrificing much.

Los antivacunas en España caen hasta el 4% frente al 87% que no dudaría en inmunizarse frente al Covid

La aceptación de la sociedad española de las vacunas contra el Covid-19 sigue en aumento. Según ha adelantado Josep Lobera, profesor de Sociología de la UAM y codirector científico de la encuesta de valoración de la campaña de vacunación de la Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnologúa (FECYT), el 87% de los españoles se vacunaría sin dudar, mientras que el 4% diría un ‘no’ rotundo al pinchazo. Estos datos contrastan con los del pasado mes de enero, cuando el 58% afirmó un ‘sí’ rotundo, frente a un 9% que se mostraba contrario a la inmunización farmacológica. Aún más llamativa es la comparación con el pasado mes de julio, cuando ambas posiciones estaban muy igualadas, con un 33% de personas reticentes a la vacuna frente a un 32% que recibiría una dosis sin dudar.

Lobera ha aprovechado la presentación de la X Encuesta de Percepción Social de la Ciencia para desgranar estos primeros datos sobre el tercer sondeo que FECYT ha llevado a cabo en mayo, matizando que, si bien son cifras llamativas, hay que ponerlas en el contexto de toda la información y esperar hasta finales de mes para conocer los resultados al completo. Sin embargo, estos porcentajes no están dentro de la Encuesta de Percepción Social de la Ciencia que se ha presentado esta mañana, aunque sí otros como la valoración de las terapias alternativas por parte de los españoles.

Al respecto, uno de cada seis españoles (17%) dice confiar en los efectos beneficiosos de la homeopatía, ocho puntos porcentuales menos que hace dos años, mientras que el 11% lo hace en el reiki (imposición de manos), cinco puntos porcentuales menos que hace dos años. Sin embargo, el investigador se ha mostrado «preocupado» ante el uso de estas terapias alternativas: en 2020, el 23,8% utilizó alguna vez la homeopatía u otros tratamientos no probados científicamente, 4,2 puntos porcentuales por encima de 2018, momento en el que se hizo la anterior encuesta. En cuanto al uso exclusivo de estas terapias, el 6,2% afirma haber recurrido únicamente a este método, un punto porcentual por encima de los datos de hace dos años.

En la presentación del informe, en la que también han participado Rosa Capeáns, directora del Departamento de Cultura Científica y de la Innovación de FECYT, y Pedro Duque, ministro de Ciencia e Innovación, también se ha señalado el ‘clamor’ de la sociedad española por aumentar la inversión del Gobierno en Ciencia y Tecnología. En concreto, el 85% de la población cree que se debería incrementar la financiación a nivel estatal, pero también un amplio porcentaje opina que la inyección de dinero debería ser responsabilidad de gobiernos autonómicos (80%) y por administraciones locales y empresas privadas (71%).

Curioso es el dato sobre los españoles que estarían dispuestos a invertir de su propio bolsillo: un 27,8% de los encuestados respondió un ‘sí’ rotundo, mientras que un 31,2% se muestra dispuesto, pero afirma no tener recursos para ello. Es decir, un 59% de la población se mostraría favorable a hacer una donación particular. «Sobre todo al principio de la pandemia hemos visto cómo se han incrementado estas aportaciones, que han llegado a varios millones de euros», ha afirmado Duque, si bien ha indicado que creen que se trata de un caso «excepcional» y que el próximo año no se darán las mismas cifras. «No hay tradición de este tipo de donaciones en España, pero tampoco nos podemos comparar con instituciones como el Houston Cancer Center, donde se hacen cada año aportaciones de miles de millones de euros, porque son casos diferentes y la sanidad es distinta».

Por otro lado, la encuesta vuelve a situar a los médicos, profesores y científicos como los profesionales mejor valorados, y una amplia mayoría opina que la remuneración de los investigadores y su reconocimiento social deberían ser mayores (algo más del 60% de los encuestados). Además, el interés por temas de ciencia y tecnología, se sitúa en un 14%, niveles muy parecidos a quienes expresan interés por la economía (16%), la educación (15%) y el medio ambiente (10%). La televisión sigue siendo el medio más utilizado para informarse, con un 72%, seguido de internet, con el 61%.

En la
X Encuesta de Percepción Social de la Ciencia y la Tecnología han participado 7.953 personas de todas las comunidades autónomas, con población desde los 15 años de edad en adelante y cuya residencia en España es igual o superior a cinco años.
