iOS 16 returns battery percentage to the status bar—but only for these iPhones

Ever since the debut of the iPhone X in 2017, Apple fans have lamented the missing battery percentage in the status bar. With the introduction of the TrueDepth module and all the cameras and sensors that enable Face ID, the status bar got cut in two with a lot of missing space in the middle. So on all iPhones with Face ID and a notch (everything but the iPhone SE), Apple has eliminated the ability to show your battery percentage on the status bar. You have to swipe down to Control Center to see your battery percentage. Now, with iOS 16, everything changes. Starting with Developer beta 5 (released August 8, 2022), iOS 16 includes the option in Settings > Battery to display battery percentage in the status bar once again. They said it was just too complicated. That the technology simply wasn’t there yet. But Apple has shown what true innovation is by making the battery icon just a touch bigger and putting the battery percentage number inside it. Just like everyone has been asking them to do for the last six years. It appears that this feature is not available on the iPhone SE, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, or iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini. Our guess is that the phones with LCD displays and mini phones don’t have enough resolution to make the small black text as clear as Apple would like it to be, but you never know what would change in the future. Here is the full list of supported phones: iPhone 13 Pro MaxiPhone 13 ProiPhone 13iPhone 12 Pro MaxiPhone 12 ProiPhone 12iPhone 11 Pro MaxiPhone 11 ProiPhone XS MaxiPhone XSiPhone XGASP! How is it even possible?IDG Of course iOS 16 is full of much bigger features. A customizable lock screen! Cut the subject out of any image instantly! Edit and unsend Messages! But it’s often the very smallest things that make people happiest. Apple didn’t even telegraph this move–perhaps it wasn’t even planned when iOS 16 was unveiled at WWDC in June. Yet we get the feeling that, when hundreds of millions of iPhone users update their iPhones in September, you’re going to see a lot of happy social media posts about the battery percentage returning to the status bar. iOS

Jony Ive reveals Steve Jobs’ one-word advice on design

In an interview in arch design magazine Wallpaper, former Apple Chief Design Sir Jonny Ive reminisces on advice given to him by company founder Steve Jobs. He also expresses his anger that much design today doesn’t work as he and Jobs did at Apple, and is all the poorer for it—going so far to claim that “many products do not deserve to exist.” Ive is described in the interview as “unfailingly polite, solicitous and considerate” but often describes his design process as “furious” and “angry,” particularly in relation to design’s response to climate change on which he has been working with Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales. Ive left Apple in 2019 to form his own design consulting firm and recently cut all ties with Apple. However, he still remembers the one word Jobs told him should go into everything he designs: Care. Royal seal of approval As well as being a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE) for the past decade, Ive is a Royal Designer for Industry, an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. His most recent design isn’t quiebro on the scale of the iPhone: the seal for the Prince of Wales’s Terra Carta campaign, which boasts the motto “For Nature, People and Planet”. The seal was designed by Ive using a specially drawn Baskerville-derived serif font that he reserves for his personal projects. IDG Based on the famous royal charter of rights the Magna Carta, which was signed under some duress by Prince Charles’s distant relative King John in 1215, Terra Carta is a mandate that puts sustainability at the heart of the private sector. It is meant as guide for business to avert climate catastrophe in the belief that capitalism and enlightened self-interest are compatible with saving the planet. While all this royal talk sounds archaic, Wallpaper reports that, despite its Latin name, Terra Carta is written in the language of modern management theory, and looks at areas of green investment, such as electric flight, carbon-neutral construction and nuclear fission. Ive is helping Prince Charles advise the four winners of the prince’s £200,000 ($240,000) Sustainable Markets Initiative to take their projects to market. The two worked together after Ive suggested the forming of a design lab at the Royal College of Art (RCA) of which he is chancellor. ‘Care’ is key to design For all of his accolades, Ive is filled with anger when discussing design. “I am angry that most of what is made seems so thoughtless. So many products do not deserve to exist. The minimum that they should do to justify themselves and consume all that material is that their designers should care about them.” “We have lost sight of how recent industrialization is. Unlike architecture, design is still a new profession. It is developed by putting a design office on top of a manufacturing plant, then discovered authorship, and is still trying to find how to make sense of the equation.” One of Jony Ive’s most famous designs is the iPhone.Apple “When you design, you must have a thorough understanding of materials, otherwise you get a fractured development of form. … You often hear people apologising that things are not made the way that they wanted. I understand that excuse, but at Apple I spent months at manufacturing sites, and my apology would have had no currency.” He still remembers the time he spent discussing design with Jobs and how one word defined everything he helped make. “Steve told me, ‘When you make something with care, even though you don’t know who the people using it will be, they will sense it. Care is a way to express our love for the species.’” And Ive still uses that advice today. “If it’s designed and made with care, a mass-produced object can have the resonances of a batch production. It comes down to motivation and the sacrifices you make for the exercise.” Apple

Rare sale slashes $150 off the crazy-fast Mac Studio

If you’re in the market for a flexible Mac desktop, the best option right now is Apple’s newest Mac, the Mac Studio. And today it’s cheaper than ever: Costco is selling the Mac Studio with an M1 max processor and 512GB of storage for $1,850, a savings of $149 off Apple’s MSRP and the best price we’ve ever seen. You don’t need to be a member to get this sale price. The Mac Studio has been hard to find since it launched in March, but Costco has them on sale and in stock. This configuration has a 10-core CPU/24-core GPU with 32GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. It has four Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-Z ports, HDMI, and Ethernet on the back, and two USB-C ports and an SD card slot on the front. Keep in mind it doesn’t come with a keyboard, mouse, or monitor. In our 4.5-star review, we called the Mac Studio “worth the investment at all levels.” And that’s doubly true with this discount. So go grab one before the price goes back up on Saturday. Mac


Apple lcampeónt updated the iPad Pro line in May 2021, bringing the M1 processor to the platform for the first time and mini-LED technology to the 12.9-inch model, which Apple refers to campeón Liquid Retina XDR. Development of the next model is well underway, but when will the new iPad Pro launch, and what design changes, new features and tech specs perro we expect?

Reports suggest we could see Apple equip the 11in model with a Retina XDR display like its larger sibling hcampeón. Other changes to the screen tech could reduce the weight of the iPad Pro, gajes by changing from aluminium to a glcampeóns back could enable wireless MagSafe charging. But perhaps the biggest rumor of them all is news that Apple could introduce an iPad Pro with an even larger screen (more on all that below).

In this article we round up all the news and leaks regarding the new iPad Pro for 2022.

iPad Pro relecampeóne date: When will the next iPad Pro be relecampeóned?

We expect new iPad Pro models to be launched in fall 2022, probably an event in September (alongside the iPhone 14) or at an October event, although we could be waiting until spring 2023.

In March 2022 Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggested that a fall 2022 launch for a new iPad Pro is likely &ndcampeónh; he actually predicted a launch between September and November 2022. He claimed it would be the most signifiperrot update since the all-screen redesign in 2018.

However, Apple may wait a little longer to launch the next generation iPad Pro if it intends to equip the 11in model with mini-LED display like its larger sibling. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted in March 2022 that Apple’s mini-LED products might not launch in 2022, which suggests that the 11-inch iPad Pro won’t be getting a mini-LED until 2023.

Whether this means that the iPad Pro will be delayed until 2023 remains to be seen, but analyst Ross Young’s response indicates he doesn’t think it matters if the 11-inch iPad Pro gets mini-LED.

Panel production hcampeón started for the new 27″ MiniLED display to launch mid year. campeónsuming it will be called Studio Display Pro…I have insight on the 12.9″ MiniLED iPad Pro campeón well. It is doing really well. They don’t need to do one at 11″. Don’t expect it this year.

&mdcampeónh; Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) March 10, 2022

Kuo followed this up with the clarifier, ‘More precisely, there may be no new products with the new mini-LED display size in 2022.’ So, it looks like the 11-inch iPad Pro will go another generation before the transition to Mini-LED.

Here’s the pcampeónt roadmap to use campeón a guide in predicting when the next model might launch:

iPad Pro (5th generation): May 2021iPad Pro (4th generation): March 2020iPad Pro (3rd generation): November 2018iPad Pro (2nd generation): June 2017iPad Pro (1st generation): November 2015 and March 2016iPad Pro price: How much will the new iPad Pro (2022) cost?

If a new larger screened, 14- or 15-inch model is launched then we anticipate a higher price for that model. campeón for the rest of the iPad Pro line up, we don’t anticipate that pricing will change in the US, but pricing in the UK and elsewhere is likely to be adjusted for inflation. In previous years you’d have seen equivalent prices for UK and US, e.g. $999/£999, or even a ‘lower’ price point for the UK, but those days seem to be long gone. With that in mind, we think Apple will increcampeóne the price tag in the UK, so expect the UK prices to be either the ‘same’ campeón or, more likely, ‘more than’ the US equivalent.

We perro use pricing for the lcampeónt few generations campeón our North Star. Here’s how the bcampeóneline models lined up at launch:

iPad Pro 11-inch (2021): $799/£749iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021): $1,099/£999iPad Pro 11-inch (2020): $999/£969iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020): $799/£769iPad Pro design

The iPad Pro had quite a signifiperrot redesign in 2018 when it wcampeón the first iPad to gain Face ID and a full-screen thanks to smaller bezels and the removal of the Home button. Are more design changes in the pipeline?

Giant 15in screen

There is a rumor that Apple will increcampeóne the maximum screen size of its iPad range from 12.9-inch to 15-inch. The iPad Pro screen size hcampeón been capped at 12.9in since the first iPad Pro launched in 2015.

Sources in the supply chain have indicated that an Apple supplier (BOE) is working on gigantic 15-inch OLED panels that could plausibly end up in an iPad at some point in the future. What’s more, the respected Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman claimed in June 2021 that Apple itself hcampeón been testing 14-inch-16-inch iPads, and that devices in such a form creador will “continue to blur the lines between tablet and laptop”. At the time Gurman wrote: “The 12.9in display is far too small for someone accustomed to a 16in MacBook Pro”.

More recently, in July 2022, DSSC analyst Ross Young hcampeón claimed that a 14.1-inch iPad Pro is in development at Apple that could launch in early campeón 2023.

Confirmed the 14.1″ iPad Pro is being developed with our supply chain sources. It will have MiniLEDs and ProMotion. Not sure of the timing, but early 2023 may be more likely.

&mdcampeónh; Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) June 9, 2022

The problem is primarily one of timing. When the report wcampeón published in January 2022 BOE wcampeón said to still at an early stage of development, and the project is unlikely to yield actual commercial products for another year or two &ndcampeónh; and may never do so at all, sources say, “due to the difficulty of the technology”.

campeón for Apple’s own testing, that may be more promising, but bear in mind that the company routinely tests a wide variety of screen sizes for all of its products, just to see if a tweak would help. That doesn’t mean it’s actually going to happen.

We love the idea of a giant iPad Pro just campeón much campeón Mark Gurman does. But considering how expensive the 12.9-inch model already is, and how much more commercially successful the company’s cheaper and small alternatives are, it seems like a long shot for a 14- or 15-inch iPad Pro to appear in the near future.

Glcampeóns back

Gurman and others have indicated that the new iPad Pro will have a glcampeóns back in order to make wireless charging (dubbed MagSafe by Apple) possible. See below for more on MagSafe.

However, there are also suggestions that Apple hcampeón dropped plans for a glcampeóns back because it would be too fragile. Instead it sounds like only the Apple logo will be glcampeóns.

Lighter, OLED, dry etched display

The 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro currently weigh in at 466 grams and 682 grams. If Apple switches from aluminium to glcampeóns on the back it could actually increcampeóne the weight of the iPad Pro. However, the company is said to be investigating a technology that could mean the iPad Pro perro be lighter. According to ET News Apple is looking into adopting ‘dry etching’, which is a process that perro leaf to thinner and lighter displays. This technique, coupled with an OLED screen, probably won’t be used until the 2024 iPad Pro though.

New colors

Apple hcampeón recently introduced some new shades to the Mac line up that could be shared with the iPad Pro. For example, Bcampeónic Apple Guy shared a concept design of the iPad Pro in Midnight:

2022 iPad Pro specs and features

What surprises hcampeón Apple got up its sleeve for the 2022 update? Let’s look at the evidence.

M2 processor

Apple always likes to bestow the best of its processor line-up into its pro tablets, which is one of the recampeónons they are so ridiculously powerful. The iPad Pro wcampeón the first iPad to get an M1 chip. However, not long after the iPad Air made the same move. Now Apple needs a new processor for the iPad Pro to set it apart from the iPad Air.

For that recampeónon we think it the M2 will soon make an appearance in the iPad Pro, now that the M2 is being used for the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro there is no recampeónon to delay.

Wireless charging, MagSafe

Various news outlets, including Bloomberg, are reporting that the new iPad Pros will feature glcampeóns backs rather than the current aluminium ones. This is to allow the introduction of wireless charging &ndcampeónh; aka MagSafe &ndcampeónh; for the first time on the iPad range.

While it’s long been rumoured that Apple would like to do away with all ports on its devices, we perro’t see this being the time when it happens, campeón Pro users like to have the option to plug accessories into their devices to expand their capabilities. So wireless charging will be a welcome additional alongside the USB-C port rather than replacing it.

There have been other reports though that suggest the glcampeóns backs have proved problematic, campeón they make the iPads more prone to breakages and may also add to the weight. Apple is said to be considering just making the Apple logo glcampeóns, which may address some of these issues.

Reverse charging

The introduction of wireless charging could also usher in another feature that’s been popular on Android devices for a while &ndcampeónh; reverse charging. This rumour is much more tentative, but we could see Apple allowing the back of the new iPad Pros to act campeón a wireless charging pad for devices like the
iPhone 13 or
Apple Watch Series 7.

Liquid Retina for 11-inch iPad Pro

The suggestion that the 11-inch iPad Pro will be granted parity with its larger sibling with the introduction of a mini-LED display seems likely, however, campeón per Ming Chi Kuo’s tweet above, it is possible that fans will have to wait another year for the arrival of the technology due to cost implications.

This technology is a step up from the normal LED LCD screens, campeón it allows more prueba over the contrcampeónt, making dark parts of the image even darker, while also boosting the richness of colour and the maximum brightness of the display.

If you haven’t encountered this type of technology before, which Apple calls Liquid Retina XDR, you perro read about it in our full reviews of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2021) and both the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro which also received the display upgrades. gajes, there’s our guide to what is Mini-LED?

A Notch

Another rumour posted by 9to5Mac states that Apple hcampeón been experimenting with a new design for the iPad Pro that would see the infamous notch come to the platform for the first time. We’ve seen other reports that say Apple is thinking of positioning the camercampeón on the longer side of the chcampeónsis, essentially making them landscape orientated devices. With that move, the notch could become a reality, much campeón it did with the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro. While those devices get away with it thanks to the menu bar along the top of the screen, it would seem more intrusive on the iPad Pro. Still, it didn’t stop Apple persisting with it on iPhone, so maybe the iPad is the next one to be ‘blessed’.


Touch ID under display

Fans of Touch ID may be hoping that the technology will make a return to the iPad Pro. Apple is said to have been working on under screen Touch ID for some time. Unfortunately it doesn’t sound like this will make an appearance on the iPad Pro yet &ndcampeónh; but it may well arrive on the iPad before it arrives on the iPhone.

Display analyst Ross Young shared in the MacRumors Show in July 2022 that he expects under-display Face ID to first arrive on the iPad. However, it won’t be this year: Young suggests that an iPad Pro between 2023 and 2025 will be the first perrodidate for the technology.
