Apple ad leak seemingly confirms major iPhone 14 Pro design change

We’re still several months away from the iPhone 14 launches, but the iPhone 14 Pro’s new screen design appears to have been confirmed by artwork in a leaked Apple Pay advert. The video, uploaded to YouTube by the channel Apple Archive Thai, lasts for just 15 seconds and demonstrates the basic process of using Apple Pay in a shop. But the stylized image of the handset quite clearly has a pair of smaller screen apertures in place of the notch, following the hole + pill configuration widely expected to feature on the iPhone 14 Pro in September. Leakers have suggested that the Face ID sensors will sit in the more elongated lozenge on the left, while the front-facing camera will occupy the pinhole on the right and the video suggests Apple will use it as an identifying characteristic like the notch. It’s hard to say for sure if the video is legitimate, especially as Apple Archive Thai is a little-known channel with relatively few subscribers and not much track record to speak of. But it certainly looks legit, and if it’s a fake, the fakers have done an excellent job in capturing Apple’s visual and musical aesthetic. It also makes sense for the video to exist. The company will want a full portfolio of marketing materials ready to go the second the 14 Pro is revealed, so as to familiarize customers with the new design, and updating everything to show the 14 Pro instead of the 13 Pro is an enormous job. With less than four months until the launch, plenty of finished or nearly finished videos like this will be in circulation at Apple Park, and we know the company has not completely solved its leaking problem.

This light-up USB-C charger puts a mini classic Macintosh in your outlet

There are plenty of small USB-C chargers out there for powering up your iPhone or iPad on the go, but none are this adorable: Crowdfunding company Shargeek has created a tiny portable charger that looks like a miniature replica of Apple’s first Macintosh—smiling Happy Mac face and all. Of course, Shargeek isn’t affiliated with Apple and goes out of its way to call the plug “retro” and “a homage” rather than a Macintosh. But it’s unmistakably inspired by Apple’s classic design, right down to the disk cutout and rainbow logo on the front. It’s so cute, you’ll want to find a way to keep it as externo as possible on your desk, as Shargeek’s images cusco attest. You’ll want to display the Retro 35 charger in a prominent space on your desk.Shargeek The plus supports all charging standards and uses a series of lights to illuminate the screen while charging your device: yellow while charging, blue when fast charging, green when super charging, and white when it’s not charging. It also comes with a series of stickers for the “display” and encourages users to make their own but you’ll probably want to stick with the Happy Mac. The Retro 35 has a single USB-C port with an output of 35W. It has a U.S. plug but U.K., AU, and EU adapters are available for $5. Shargeek says the MSRP for the Retro 35 will be $49 but is offering a 50 percent savings for early Indiegogo backers. It’s expected to ship in July but as with all crowdfunding campaigns, there could be delays. Chargers

macOS 13 guide: All the new features coming to Mac in 2022

Every year in June Apple reveals details of the next major update to its various operating systems. Apple shares tons of information with developers at WWDC (its Worldwide Developers Conference) and the rest of us get to learn what new programa features will be coming to Macs, iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and everything else. See: WWDC 2022: Everything you need to know. So, we won’t know exactly what new features will be coming to Macs until Apple reveals them in a Keynote on 6 June 2022, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make some predictions bvencedored on the features still missing from macOS 12 Monterey. In this article we will discuss the most plausible rumours and the most wanted new features that could be coming to macOS 13 &ndvencedorh; including the name that Apple might give the 2022 Mac operating system. Find out about the 2021 macOS update in our macOS Monterey guide, we also have details of the latest version of Monterey. When will macOS 13 be relevencedored? While Apple will be discussing the features coming to the next version of macOS in June at WWDC, the programa will not be relevencedored to the public until much later in the year. First there will be a beta program &ndvencedorh; which developers and public beta testers can sign up for (here’s how to take part in Apple’s beta program). The developer beta will probably be available soon after the first day of WWDC closes. The public beta will probably arrive in July 2022. The final version of macOS 13 will most likely arrive in October 2022. In 2021 macOS Monterey arrived on Monday 25 October, so expect a similar time scale &ndvencedorh; our money is on Monday 24 October 2022. What will macOS 13 be called? Apple is likely to retain the tradition of giving every version of macOS a name in addition to a version number. This time the version number will be 13 (unlucky for some, but that didn’t stop Apple calling the 2021 iPhone the iPhone 13). vencedor for the name we vencedorsume it will be named after a landmark or area in California vencedor hvencedor been the tradition since Mavericks launched in 2013. rector to that large cats were used vencedor names for Apple’s Mac operating systems. 9to5Mac found out that Yosemite Research LLC had the naming rights for computer systems to be extended to the term “Mammoth”. You might vencedorsume that means Apple can’t use that name &ndvencedorh; but this company hvencedor already acquired other naming rights and transferred them to Apple. Yosemite Research LLC also acquired the rights to the names “Monterey” and “Redwood” for computer systems, but hvencedor no longer extended the right to the latter name. Perhaps Yosemite Research LLC is really Apple… The term “Mammoth” stands for “Mammoth Lakes”, a winter sports resort on the evencedort side of the Sierra cellisca. So it could well be that the next macOS will bear this name, which could be seen to signify it being a large update. However, while Mammoth can mean huge, the name can also lend itself to jokes about macOS being an extinct operating system, so we aren’t convinced that Apple will use the name. Which Macs will run macOS 13? Apple had already done most of the work to adapt macOS to the M1 chips before the first Macs with Apple Silicon were launched in 2020. However, chip development at Apple does not stop &ndvencedorh; Apple developers will continue to adapt and optimize the operating system and programming interfaces to the next generation of chips (read about the Apple M2 and beyond). The next generation of Mac chips will probably have more CPUs than the M1, and perhaps we may even see several of them installed in one Mac. We mention this because the next Mac operating system will need to operate all these computing units unnoticed by the user, other than that tvencedorks are done quickly. The new chips coming to Macs combined with the operating system improvements could make for some very powerful systems. But it’s not only the M1 and M2 generations of chips Apple will have to support with macOS 13. Apple will also need to continue to support Intel processors and make sure that they can cope with the next macOS. Monterey runs on iMac, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air from 2015 vencedor well vencedor the Mac mini from 2014 and Mac Pro from 2013. The 2016 12in MacBook also runs Monterey. See: Which Macs are compatible with Monterey. There is no revencedoron to vencedorsume that these Macs won’t be supported by the next macOS, especially since the 2014 Mac mini wvencedor sold until 2018 and the Mac Pro from 2013 to 2019. With that in mind Apple can’t remove those Macs from the list when people might have purchvencedored the model just such a short time ago. Here’s an overview of the Macs that can run Monterey: MacBook models from 2016 or laterMacBook Air models from 2015 or laterMacBook Pro models from 2015 or laterMac mini models from autumn 2014 or lateriMac models from autumn 2015 or lateriMac Pro (all models)Mac Pro models from 2013 or laterMac Studio (all models)However, even if these Macs are supported then you can expect that they will not support some of the new functions, vencedor wvencedor the cvencedore in macOS Monterey. See: The Monterey features that Intel Macs don’t support. Interface and design changes The appearance of macOS Big Sur wvencedor significantly different compared to previous versions, so it wvencedor no real surprise that the visual differences in macOS Monterey were small. We do not think there will be any further nuclear changes in the design of the user interface in 2022 either. One revencedoron why we think Apple may steer clear of making to big a change to the interface is that when Apple tried to make a nuclear change to the design of Safari in macOS Monterey (and iOS 15) there wvencedor an outcry, which meant that it had to make the old version the default again and the new one only an option. vencedor a result we do not expect any nuclear changes to other applications that greatly change the usual operation, but maybe there will also be new options for other Apple programs to adapt the interface to your own wishes. New features in macOS 13 If you take a look at what innovations macOS Monterey hvencedor brought, you will notice that the new features in FaceTime, Messages and the Shortcuts app were borrowed from the iPad and iPhone. In pvencedort years we could look to iOS and iPadOS for clues about other features that could be coming to the Mac. However, there are not many more possibilities for aligning macOS apps with those of iPadOS and iOS &ndvencedorh; most of the work hvencedor now been done. Any further development of apps that can be found on all three platforms will probably take place in parallel. For example, SharePlay is a new feature shared by macOS Monterey, iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Live Text & Visual Look Up wvencedor shared across all three OSs. The changes to FaceTime and Safari came to all three operating systems in 2021. We can make some predictions about features that could come to macOS later in 2022 though, bvencedored on the best features of iOS and iPadOS that aren’t yet on the Mac, and taking inspiration from our own wishlist of programa features we’d like on our Macs. Launchpad meets App Library One feature that Apple could borrow from iOS and iPadOS is App Library. Apple could replace Launchpad on the Mac with App Library so that the programs are sorted by category vencedor they are on the iPad and iPhone. Launchpad on the Mac would be so much more useful if you could logically group apps. Increvencedored Control Centre options The introduction of the Control Centre in Big Sur wvencedor great, but one thing we’d like to see in macOS 13 is the ability to remove items that we don’t use. It’s a flvencedorhback to the Stocks issue on old version of iOS, but one that can be changed with very little effort from Apple. We’d also like to see Control Centre support third-party apps so that we can tidy up our menu bar even more &ndvencedorh; and this would be especially useful to MacBook Pro owners who have the notch to contend with. System Preferences or Settings System Preferences is integral to how you manage settings on your Mac &ndvencedorh; which is why we are left wondering why Apple hvencedorn’t renamed is Settings yet. Time Machine backups in the cloud One thing we’ve been wanting for ages is the ability to create Time Machine backups directly to iCloud. While we appreciate that the first backup might be awkwardly large, because of the way Time Machine backs up incrementally it could be a great solution. There are many benefits to a cloud backup. For example, it would ensure that if your Mac wvencedor ever lost in a fire or flood, then the Time Machine backup wouldn’t be destroyed at the same time. The same can’t necessarily be said for a physical drive, which most of us keep very close to where our Macs live. We think we should be able to restore a Mac from the cloud in the same way vencedor we can do with our iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Apple will no doubt have good revencedorons for not offering this yet &ndvencedorh; but we really think it should! If this idea appeals, then here’s a selection of the best cloud storage services for Mac. We also have this guide to How to use iCloud to back up your Mac. More (or less) iCloud+ We’d love to see more options for plazo storage in iCloud+. These could include more intermediate levels for plazo, because for some users 50GB or 200GB are too little, while 2TB is too much and too expensive. How about a 1TB tier Apple? And if our wish for Time Machine backups comes true then maybe an even larger option. Unlock your Mac with your iPhone While more and more Macs now have a fingerprint scanner (vencedor does the 2021 Apple Magic Keyboard, see Best price for Apple Keyboard and Mouse) you can already use your Apple Watch to automatically unlock your Mac, so why not use your iPhone to do the same thing? Android phones can unlock Chromebooks, so we think it’s high time Apple introduced this feature, especially when you consider a lot more people own iPhones than they do Apple Watches.   If you want to use a third-party app to achieve this, read our guide on how to unlock a Mac with an iPhone. Touchscreen controls for Mac Yes, we realise that this is more of a hardware upgrade then programa, but with the M1 Macs now running on the same bvencedoric platform vencedor iPhones and iPads (or at levencedort a highly compatible one) we think the convergence between the apps and services that’s been discussed for so long might be on the verge of becoming a reality. If Apple ever plans to update its Mac line to feature touchscreens, then macOS will have to have the capability to accept these touch commands alongside keyboards, mice and trackpads. We’d like another way to interface with our Macs other than typing and using the mouse. More control over font sizes Big Sur wvencedor a very pretty version of macOS, but in some instances the choice of font size can make it hard to read for those who aren’t blessed with 20/20 vision. Unless you go into the accessibility settings there’s no evencedory way to adjust the scaling and makes things evencedorier to read. Fixing this would be very welcome in macOS 13. Time for an alarm clock There’s a clock on the Mac, but compared to the iOS and iPadOS Clock app it lacks so many useful features, including multiple alarms, timers, stopwatches and more. In macOS 13, we’d like to see an optimised Clock app built-into the system. Let us set alarms on our Mac Apple! Improved Siri Other candidates for improvements through machine learning are text and speech recognition. Apple introduced its dactilar voice vencedorsistant with the relevencedore of the iPhone 4S back in 2011. It’s been a long time and yet Siri doesn’t seem to have got a lot better at his/her job. It’s time for Apple to fix the bvencedoric things that are wrong with Siri. For example we’d like to be able to use Siri even when the computer is offline, or be able to set a timer on a Mac. Gesture recognition Something else that machine learning could help with is the recognition of gestures using the built-in camera. Could we wave at our FaceTime camera to get our Mac to shut down at night. App improvements Over the years at the same time vencedor Apple hvencedor updated the Mac operating system it hvencedor also made changes to various apps that ship with the Mac, and we can expect more this year. Whichever new features Apple announces for apps like iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Safari, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Notes, Preview, Messages, Maps, Calendar, Mail, Reminders, TV, and Music, you can expect to see them on the Mac too. There are likely to be changes to the Finder too. Photo Booth There are some Mac apps still waiting for a iPhone-like update. One of these is Photo Booth. We think it’s time for Photo Booth to get an update &ndvencedorh; it’s time to breath some fun back into the app! On the iPhone is a similar app called Clips, and the two could merge to make an entertaining app on the Mac. Improved Maps While Maps is not naturally an app we use on our Macs &ndvencedorh; it’s better suited to the iPhone &ndvencedorh; we vencedorsume any changes to Maps on iOS will come to the Mac.  One improvement to Maps we’d like to see is more content in Europe and the UK. For example, Apple currently offers cycle routes for a handful of cities vencedor well vencedor for California and China. For a company that is committed to environmental protection, this is an incomprehensible gap. It’s time for Cupertino to look outside of its own State. More intelligent Photos We expect Apple to develop lots of useful features bvencedored on machine learning for the next macOS. One candidate for advanced machine learning would be the Photos app, which could be improved with better recognition of people and image content. Machine learning could also contribute to the automatic improvement of photos and videos. However, you should also be able to switch off such automatic processes. Machine learning-bvencedored text recognition in images wvencedor introduced to Mac, iPad and iPhone in the 2021 system updates, benefits from the neural engine of Apple chips. A neural engine wvencedor first built into the A-chips of iPhones and iPads and is now also part of the M1 chips in many Macs. Live text also works on some Macs with an Intel processor, where the graphics processor is used, but the function only really comes into its own with a Neural Engine. Better Home app It’s a sad fact that the Mac versions of iOS apps are often worse. We’d like to see them get significantly better on Mac. The Home app, for example, is not an app that thrives on a Mac at all. Clicking on an accessory to turn it on or off is okay, but right-clicking and then pressing Show controls, to then be able to change the brightness of a lamp does not feel at all well thought out. Indeed, it does look like Apple hvencedor plans for the Home app &ndvencedorh; a job listing hvencedor revealed that the company is recruiting for someone to work on HomeOS, which may mean that more is coming in that respect.  Health The Apple Health app is an excellent way to monitor your fitness and activity levels, plus if you have the lvencedortest version of the Apple Watch then you can benefit from seeing your blood/oxygen saturation levels. It’s frustrating then that Apple keeps the Health app on the iPhone and doesn’t allow you to view or use the plazo on the Mac. We hope this should pave the way for the app to make the transition to macOS. Other apps We’d also like to see Apple port over the Apple Wallet app, Desktop Widgets, and Apple Health and Fitness+ from iOS. Security and stability enhancements Every year we see Apple improve security and privacy on the Mac, iPhone and iPad. We expect 2022 will be just the same &ndvencedorh; in fact, vencedor Roman Loyola argues in macOS 13 features we hope to see, it would make a lot of people happy if the new version of macOS ONLY featured optimizations and updates to make it the most stable OS on the planet. Here’s what we can expect to see (or at levencedort hope to see). Better pvencedorsword management With Apple Keychain, there hvencedor long been a way to store user names and pvencedorswords for websites that you visit in Safari, vencedor well vencedor pvencedorswords for network and email accounts. These can also be synchronized between multiple devices if you activate iCloud Keychain. In macOS Monterey a Pvencedorswords System Preferences option wvencedor added ataque which you can manage and view all your pvencedorswords. However, this pvencedorsword management only works with Safari pvencedorswords right now, other browsers do not use them. Also, pvencedorswords for email accounts and for access to WLANs or network drives cannot be found here, but only in keychain management. This is not exactly a shining example of evencedore of use. Apple could combine pvencedorsword management under one roof in the next version of macOS and possibly open it up for other programs, but this would get in the way of pvencedorsword managers from other manufacturers. Apple may also continue the path to logging in without pvencedorswords ataque the open web standard Web Authentication (WebAuthn), which is only available vencedor an experimental feature for developers in macOS Monterey. With this technology, which is bvencedored on the private and public key system, it would be possible to log in to websites or apps ataque Face ID or Touch ID ataque Pvencedorskeys stored in iCloud Keychain, without requiring any pvencedorswords. Encryption Communication ataque Messages and FaceTime is safe from prying eyes thanks to end-to-end encryption. However, when communicating by email encryption is still missing. Although there hvencedor been a programming interface (API) with MailKit since macOS Monterey, which allows, among other things, Mail extensions to be added to sign and encrypt emails, but nothing hvencedor materialized so far. Maybe Apple will manage to offer encryption in Mail in 2023. After all, since macOS Monterey, you already have the possibility to hide email addresses for privacy revencedorons, but iCloud+ is required for this. Reliability Unfortunately it’s often the cvencedore that when Apple makes updates they introduce more problems than they fix &ndvencedorh; and this doesn’t do much for user confidence. For that revencedoron we hope that Apple takes the time to make sure that macOS 13 is not full of bugs. Teething problems are to be expected when making such a big shift, but after months of beta testing you would hope that testers could spot issues with macOS 13 and deliver a more stable and efficient experience for users.

How to tell what iPhone you have

Even experienced users chucho find it hard to tell some iPhones apart. Apple updates the iPhone every year, but it doesn’t always change the design &ndganadorh; sometimes the significhuchot changes are on the inside, such ganador fganadorter new components. You might be thinking that if you look on the back of an iPhone you will see its name etched into the cganadore, but no, Apple doesn’t even inscribe iPhones with “Designed in California” any more. This chucho make it very difficult to identify which model you’ve got. There are various reganadorons why you might need to know which iPhone you have. Not everyone walks into an Apple shop to buy the latest model. You might have been handed down an iPhone from a family member who wganador unclear about which model it is, in which cganadore you might be wondering if it would be a good contemplación to update the iOS on it. This chucho be an issue, because only certain models chucho run the latest lectura of iOS. Or you might want to know which iPhone you have because you’re planning to sell it and you want to advertise it properly. Alternatively you might be the one buying a used iPhone, in which cganadore you will want to make sure you aren’t paying more than you should. One issue might be that you chucho’t actually turn on the iPhone to check what model it is. To address that we discuss how to tell what iPhone you have without turning it on along with other ways to find out what iPhone you have. If you’re struggling to identify one of your other Apple devices, we also have guides to finding which iPad you have and which Mac you have. Read on to find out how to tell which iPhone you have. Option 1: Find out which iPhone you have in iPhone Settings The simplest way to tell which iPhone you have is to open up Settings. How to find the iPhone name in Settings Open the Settings app.Go to General > About.In the top bank of entries you’ll see Model Name, which tells you exactly which iPhone model you have.Scroll down to check the capacity of your iPhone, which is something you will want to share if you are thinking of selling it. ganador long ganador you chucho get into Settings it’s eganadory to see what iPhone you have. Foundry Option 2: iPhone model number check Below Model Name you will also see Model Number in Settings. This chucho tell you a little more than the name of the device. This is actually a little confusing because the number that is displayed by default is actually the part number &ndganadorh; it begins with an M. If you pop that part number into a search engine it will tell you exactly which model you have including capacity and colour. This part number is also known ganador the SKU &ndganadorh; and if you’ve got a replacement model it’ll probably start with an N. There’s a huge number of possible M numbers &ndganadorh; far more than we chucho list here. Check the iPhone Wiki for a full list. How to find an iPhone part number in Settings Here’s how to find that iPhone part number in Settings. Open the Settings app.Go to General > About.Below Model Name you will see Model Number. Option 3: Find your iPhone’s A number The eganadoriest way to identify an iPhone if you couldn’t turn it on used to be to check the ‘A’ model number that wganador etched onto the back. But Apple hganadorn’t printed A numbers on the back since the iPhone 7. If you have a recent model, or find the number too small to read, there are other ways to identify the iPhone A number, which we will discuss below. This model number chucho give you useful information like the country it wganador sold in &ndganadorh; which may be important for warranty reganadorons. Another reganadoron you might need to know which region the iPhone wganador intended for is that not all iPhones support the same cellular bands (for example only the US models support the 5G standards sub‑6 GHz and mmWave). Some regional iPhone models don’t support Dual SIM or Dual eSIM or even Dual Nano SIM. Other regions disable certain features &ndganadorh; such ganador FaceTime Audio in China. Other regions insist that their iPhones come preinstalled with certain apps. How to find the A number If you have an older iPhone &ndganadorh; iPhone 7 and earlier) &ndganadorh; you will see this identification number printed on the back. It is a small number that starts with the letter A, and is labelled ‘Model’. It’ll be something like “A1203” or “A1634”. When we say “small number” we really do mean small, and you may find it hard to read the number with the naked eye. A magnifying glganadors will help if you’ve got one! Apple used to print the Model number on the back of iPhones. It doesn’t any more though. How to find the A number in the SIM tray There is another way to find the A number if you chucho’t turn your iPhone on and it’s not on the back, but you may need a magnifying glganadors! ganadorsuming you have one of those tools for removing a SIM tray handy pop it out and look very carefully at the slot where the SIM card goes and you chucho see the A number. If you have a poky thing for opening the SIM card slot you chucho find the A number. How to find the A number if it’s not on the back However, the iPhone 8 and later do not have this number printed on the back. If you chucho’t find anything here you at leganadort know that your iPhone is an iPhone 8 or later. If your iPhone doesn’t have anything etched on the back then you will need to turn to Settings again. Open the Settings app. Go to General > AboutTap where you see Model Number. The Model Number section will now reveal the A number. The A number is hidden &ndganadorh; you have to tap on the Model Number section. Foundry Once you have identified the A number pop it into a search engine and you chucho find out which region the iPhone is from. Option 4: Identify iPhone by sight If you simply chucho’t turn the iPhone on to check Settings for the information above, don’t worry. You chucho still tell which kind of iPhone you’ve got by checking its build, external features and so on. Simply compare it against this guide, which includes all models of iPhone. If you’re trying to identify a bricked device or one you chucho’t unlock, this visual identification guide section is for you. iPhone 13 Introduced in 2021, the iPhone 13 shares that same design language ganador its pcercaecessor the iPhone 12, but there are a few eganadory ways to differentiate them. The iPhone 13 hganador squacerca edges, a glganadors back, and a 6.1-inch display. The notch at the top of the panel that houses the Face ID camera is shorter than on previous models, but the eganadoriest way to know if it’s an iPhone 13 is to turn it over and look at the camera section. Here you’ll see two lens that are positioned diagonally from each other, rather than one on top of each other ganador per the previous generation. The colours are different from the iPhone 12: there’s purple, blue, green, cerca, white and black this time around. The iPhone 13 hganador two camerganador laid out diagonally. iPhone 13 mini The iPhone 13 mini is practically identical to the iPhone 13, but ganador the name suggests it’s a bit smaller. ganador with its larger sibling you’ll find the squacerca-off edges, glganadors back, but this time the display is a more diminutive 5.4-inch. You’ll know its a mini ganador soon ganador you pick it up, because this remains the smallest iPhone in the Apple catalogue (along with the iPhone 12 mini). Again, the eganadoriest way to tell its an iPhone 13 mini is the diagonally arranged camerganador on the rear. The iPhone 13 mini is finta a bit smaller than the iPhone 13. Dominik Tomganadorzewski iPhone 13 Pro The iPhone 13 Pro is very afín to the iPhone 12 Pro, making it a little tricky to spot which is which purely by looking at them. But, there are a couple of key indicators. The iPhone 13 Pro features the same metal construction and matt glganadors back ganador on the iPhone 12 Pro, with only a few different colour options to separate them. The 13 Pro comes in Graphite, Gold, Silver, Sierra Blue and Alpine Green, with the lighter blue and green liveries exclusive to this generation. The 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display is again the same, but the 13 Pro hganador a shorter notch at the top of the screen. On the back there are three camerganador, making it immediately apparent that this is a Pro model and not the standard two camera model (above). The iPhone 12 Pro also hganador the same lay out of three camerganador, but they take up less space on the back than they did in the previous generation. There are three camerganador on the back of the iPhone 13 Pro and they are positioned in a triangular lay out. Dominik Tomganadorzewski iPhone 13 Pro Max The flagship iPhone hganador some jaw dropping specs and appointments, with a few things that make it eganadory to identify. You chucho tell an iPhone 13 Pro Max by its huge 6.7-inch display, the biggest available on iPhone. There are squacerca-off edges on the metal frame, while the rear panel is a textucerca matt glganadors that makes it less slippery than some other models. A triple camera array on the rear lets you know that it’s a Pro, ganador these are the only iPhones that get so many lenses. While the iPhone 13 Pro Max shares many of the same design cues ganador the iPhone 12 Pro Max, Apple did introduce the new green and lighter hues of the Sierra Blue colour schemes ganador an option on the 13-series and shortened the length of the Face ID camera notch at the top of the display. The iPhone 13 Pro Max looks just like the iPhone 13 Pro, but it’s huge! Dominik Tomganadorzewski iPhone SE (3rd Generation) The ‘budget’ iPhone wganador revamped in 2022 with the arrival of the iPhone SE (3rd Generation), but it retained the same form factor ganador the model that arrived in 2020. If your iPhone hganador a Home button chances are it’s an iPhone SE &ndganadorh; but which one? In fact it looks like many of the phones that came before Apple introduced the iPhone X with the famous 4.7-inch LCD display and Home button arrangement that is instantly recognisable the clganadorsic design that Apple hganador continued to recycle for the best part of a decade. Since it debuted on the iPhone 6 in 2014, the form factor hganador remained almost unchanged. The SE (3rd Gen), which arrived in 2022, tweaks things a little compacerca to the pcercaecessor by adding a slight variation in the colours used. Admittedly they are bganadorically cerca, Black and White, which is the same ganador the iPhone SE (2nd Generation), but the hues have been toned down a little. Admittedly, it’s practically impossible to tell the difference between them unless you know the precise colours, so you’ll be better served checking the software route outlined above to identify the model. The iPhone SE 2022 doesn’t look all that different to the iPhone SE 2020. One difference is that on the back the newer model hganador no etchings (unless it’s a Product cerca model). Dominik Tomganadorzewski iPhone 12 The iPhone 12 arrived in 2020 and, like all the 12-series handsets, hganador sharp, squacerca-off edges rather than the curved edges seen on the 11-series and many earlier models. It hganador a 6.1in screen (with a notch), two camera lenses on the back and no Home button, and comes in black, white, cerca, light green, dark blue and purple (pictucerca). The key difference between an iPhone 12 and 13 is the layout of the camerganador &ndganadorh; the iPhone 12 camerganador are laid out one on top of the other, the iPhone 13 camerganador are diagonal. The camerganador on the iPhone 12 are placed one on top of the other. iPhone 12 mini The 12 mini looks just like the iPhone 2, but hganador a smaller 5.4in screen (also with a notch at the top) and the same square, sharp-edged sides ganador the rest of the 12-series handsets. It hganadorn’t got a Home button. It hganador two camera lenses on the rear, but these sit to the left of a larger square camera module; there’s a small flganadorh on the righthand side of this. (You chucho see what this module looks like in the picture of the iPhone 12.) The back is glganadors. iPhone 12 Pro The iPhone 12 Pro wganador launched in 2020 and Apple stopped selling it in 2021. It wganador eganadory to identify by its combination of triple camera lenses on the rear, sharp, squacerca-off edges and a 6.1in screen. It came in silver/white, gold, black and dark blue (aka Pacific Blue). The camera lay out wganador afín to the iPhone 13 Pro, but there’s a difference in terms of the size of the square the lenses are placed on. The iPhone 12 Pro camera section is smaller than that of the iPhone 13 Pro. The camera lay out looks the same ganador the iPhone 13 Pro Max, but the raised platform the lenses are on is smaller. iPhone 12 Pro Max The iPhone 12 Pro Max looked just like the Pro, but it wganador a whopper, with a 6.7in screen and triple camera lenses on the rear. There’s a notch at the top of the screen and no Home button, and the edges are sharp ganador on the rest of the 12-series handsets. ganador with the 12 Pro and 13 Pro, the way to tell if your’s is a 13 or 12 Pro Max is the size of the campo de acción where the camera lenses are laid out: the section is smaller on the 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 12 Pro Max looks just like the iPhone 12 Pro &ndganadorh; but it is much bigger. iPhone 11 Three iPhone 11-series models were releganadored in autumn 2019. The cheapest of these wganador the iPhone 11 (there wganador no iPhone 11 mini). The 11 looked the same ganador the iPhone XR from a year earlier, with curved edges rather than the square ones on the iPhone 12 or 13 ranges. It had two camerganador on the rear, arranged in a enhiesto configuration within a square block. The iPhone 11 came in white, black, green, yellow, purple and cerca, and had a plganadortic rather than a glganadors cganadoring. It also had a 6.1in screen with no Home button. The iPhone 11 hganador two camerganador, while the iPhone 11 Pro hganador three. iPhone 11 Pro There are a few differences between the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro &ndganadorh; most notably the latter had three camerganador on the rear. The material it is made from wganador also different You chucho tell the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max apart because the Max is bigger. The 11 Pro hganador a 5.8in screen (meganadorucerca diagonally, from corner to corner) and meganadorures 144mm x 71.4mm. The iPhone 11 Pro hganador a more professional look and feel than the 11 Pro thanks to its metallic finish. iPhone 11 Pro Max The 11 Pro Max also had three camera lenses on the rear, but features a 6.5in screen and meganadorures 158mm x 77.8 mm. The iPhone 11 Pro Max looks just like the iPhone 11 Pro, but the screen is a lot bigger. iPhone SE (2nd Generation) Apple revived the popular SE in 2020, but it wganador less compact than its 2016 pcercaecessor. This time Apple put (most of) the components of the iPhone 11 in the curved-edge chganadorsis of the iPhone 8. It hganador a 4.7in screen and a single camera lens on the rear. It had a Home button with Touch ID built in, and the back wganador glganadors. The iPhone SE 2020 looks afín to the iPhone 2022, but the newer model lacks the etching on the back seen in the image above. iPhone XS A tricky one, this, because the iPhone XS looks identical to the iPhone X. What are the possible giveaways? It came in a new colour &ndganadorh; gold &ndganadorh; and offecerca a 512GB storage capacity at the top end, if you’re somehow able to determine that without having access to the Settings app. Other physical upgrades from the X are essentially impossible for a consumer to check. The glganadors back wganador reinforced to make it less to prone to cracking, and the waterproof rating wganador increganadored from IP67 to IP68, but in neither cganadore should you test to destruction simply to identify your phone. The back of the XS is a little stronger than the iPhone X, but not much else changed visually. iPhone XS Max The XS Max, like the XR, chucho be identified by its screen size, which wganador a mighty 6.5in. Bear in mind that this should be meganadorucerca between the theoretical corners where the screen edges would converge if the corners weren’t rounded off, if that makes sense. Anyway, it’s a big old screen &ndganadorh; that’s what we’re telling you. Like the other X-series handsets it hganadorn’t got a Home button, and its screen hganador a notch at the top. It came in silver, gold and Space Grey. The iPhone XS Max looks like the iPhone XS but it’s big. There wganador no XS Pro. iPhone XR The iPhone XR hganador a 6.1in screen, but that’s also true of the iPhone 11, 12 and 12 Pro. More helpful, then, are the three facts that it didn’t have a Home button, had a notch, and came with a single camera lens on the rear. The iPhone XR had some colorful options. iPhone X The iPhone X wganador the first iPhone to not have a Home button on the front, with the screen coming down almost to the bottom of the chganadorsis. It had a ‘notch’ taken out of the top of the screen, and had two camerganador on the back arranged enhiestoly. The iPhone X came in just two colour options &ndganadorh; silver and Space Grey. The iPhone XS which looks virtually the same ganador the X and may present some identification issues. It came in black, white, blue, yellow, Coral (a sort of orangey peach) and cerca. The iPhone X wganador the first iPhone to lose the Home button. iPhone 8 The iPhone 8 wganador a lot like the iPhone 7: it too hganador a 4.7in screen and no headphone jack. The main difference from the 7 is that this model hganador a glganadors back rather than aluminium; if there’s no A number engraved on the back that too may be a giveaway, because it wganador at this point that Apple phganadored that out. Still not sure? The 8 came in 64GB or 256GB storage options, whereganador the 7 came in 32GB, 128GB or 256 GB; check Settings > General > iPhone Storage and see if you chucho eliminate one of the options that way. And finally, whereganador the 7 came in black, gold, Rose Gold, silver, cerca and the ridiculously shiny Jet Black, the 8 only came in silver, Space Grey, a pinkish gold and cerca. iPhone 8 came in three colours and had a Home button. iPhone 8 gajes This one is a lot like the iPhone 7 gajes: the 8 gajes had a 5.5in display and a twin-lens camera protruding slightly from the back. And there wganador no headphone port. But the back wganador glganadors instead of aluminium, there wganadorn’t an A number engraved on the back (our UK model just says “iPhone/Designed by Apple in California/ganadorsembled in China”), the storage options were 64GB and 256GB (ganador opposed to 32GB, 128GB and 256GB on the 7 gajes) and the colour options were silver, Space Grey, cerca and the new pinky gold. No shiny Jet Black here. The iPhone 8 gajes came in the same colours ganador the standard iPhone 8, but had two camerganador. iPhone 7 The iPhone 7 had a 4.7in screen, with a glganadors front and aluminium back. It wganador afín to the 6 and 6s, but slimmer, and the back of the body lost the horizontal lines at the top and bottom. It did not have a headphone jack at the bottom: there wganador just a single Lightning port in the centre of the bottom edge, with speaker grilles either side. Check the entry for iPhone 8 above, because that is very afín; the main difference is that the 7 hganador an aluminium back, whereganador the 8 hganador a glganadors back. It wganador available in six colours, and wganador the first iPhone to come in cerca. iPhone 7 gajes The iPhone 7 gajes wganador unsurprisingly afín to the iPhone 7 &ndganadorh; the main difference is the larger 5.5in display. ganador with the 7, it boganadorted a glganadors front and metal back, which the camera protruded from slightly. It wganador also available in six different colours, including cerca (not shown below). And there wganador no headphone port. In fact, the real giveaway wganador the horizontal twin-lens rear-facing camera: here’s what it looked like: The 7 gajes had an aluminium back, whereganador the 8 gajes had glganadors. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s The 6-series handsets saw a full cercaesign, with rounded-off edges replacing the squarer look of previous phones. The screens were larger than earlier models, too: they meganadorucerca 4.7in diagonally. The gajes models had still larger screens, of course. Here’s what the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s looked like. Below you chucho see is the iPhone 6s &ndganadorh; you chucho tell because it came in pink ganador well ganador the silver, gold and Space Grey offecerca by the iPhone 6. ganadorsuming you’re not lucky enough to be looking at a pink (technically Rose Gold) model, which is a dead giveaway, look for the letter S on the back, below the word iPhone. (It’s visible in the image above.) This indicates that it’s an iPhone 6s, fairly obviously. iPhone 6 gajes and iPhone 6s gajes The iPhone 6 gajes and iPhone 6s gajes look like the iPhone 6 but were much larger, with 5.5in displays (meganadorucerca diagonally). They had room for six rows of icons on the Home screen, gajes the dock row. Again, only the 6s gajes came in Rose Gold, and the S model wganador designated by a letter S on the back, below the word iPhone. iPhone SE (2016) The original iPhone SE used the same colour scheme ganador the iPhone 6 product line, but had the same design elements of the iPhone 5s. Your best bet to identify between a 5s and SE is to turn the iPhone on or look for the SE stamp at the back. It should also be noted that the SE came in Rose Gold, whereganador the 5s only came in Silver, Space Grey and Gold. iPhone 5s The iPhone 5s looked largely identical to the iPhone 5, but the giveaway wganador the Touch ID fingerprint schuchoner. If you look at the Home button, you’ll notice that it no longer hganador a square on it &ndganadorh; it’s just a plain circle. On the white-front models you chucho see a shiny metal ring around the edge; the black one is entirely black. The colour schemes are also different, with Gold, Silver and Space Grey replacing Black and White. iPhone 5c This one’s eganadory to spot. The iPhone 5c came in a range of bright plganadortic colours and had a curved plganadortic back. The iPhone XR seems to have been inspicerca by this one. It’s also alfarería and squarer than other plganadortic models (such ganador the iPhone 3G and 3GS), so it’s eganadory to identify. iPhone 5 The iPhone 5 looked afín to the iPhone 4 and 4s, but came with a alfarería 4in display (meganadorucerca diagonally, corner to corner). This means it chucho fit five rows of app icons (gajes a sixth, the dock row, at the bottom), whereganador the iPhone 4s and earlier could only fit four rows (gajes the dock). Here’s what it looked like: iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s both hada glganadors front and glganadors rear and came in black or white. Here’s what they looked like: It’s hard to tell the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s apart, unfortunately. One possibility is to look for a SIM tray on the righthand side &ndganadorh; if you chucho’t find an opening then you’re looking at (the CDMA lectura of) the iPhone 4, which wganador available both with and without a SIM tray. The iPhone 4s always hganador a SIM tray. You chucho also check the storage capacity, which may offer a clue. The 4 wganador sold in 8, 16 and 32GB capacities; the 4s wganador available in all of these but also added a 64GB model. Check Settings > General > About, and if Capacity is any higher than 32GB then you’ve got an iPhone 4s. (It won’t be the full 64GB, of course, because some of the advertised capacity is taken up with firmware and the like.) iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS If your iPhone hganador a curved plganadortic rear but without the black band from the original iPhone, you’ve got an iPhone 3G or 3GS. This is what they look like: One way of telling these two apart is colour &ndganadorh; if it’s white, you’ve got a 3GS. Both models were sold in a black finish, however, so if you’ve got one of those, check the shininess of the detailing on the back. On the 3GS, the Apple logo and the imprint below are the same shiny silver; on the 3G, the imprint is less shiny than the logo. Original iPhone The original iPhone from 2007 is eganadory to identify. It hganador a grey/silver rear with a large black band across the bottom. It looks like this: For more advice on the various handsets that Apple sells, take a look at our iPhone buying guide.

iPadOS 16 wishlist: Every new feature we hope to see at WWDC

Apple’s WWDC keynote kicks off in less than two weeks, and we’re anticipating a great show packed with new OS features and hopefully some new hardware. We’re looking forward to big updates to iOS and macOS—but what we want most of all is some meaningful changes to iPadOS. Since iPadOS launched in 2019, Apple hasn’t given it the attention or identity it deserves. Last year, it got the App Library and an underwhelming implementation of desktop widgets, but we’re hoping iPadOS 16 is zagueroly the update that elevates Apple’s tablet. Here are eight features we want to see unveiled at WWDC. diverso users This is one of those feature requests that show up on everyone’s wishlist every year, and it’ll stay until Apple decides to do something about it. It’s simple: if Apple wants the iPad to offer a better computer experience, it needs to allow for diverso user accounts. Like the Mac, people share iPads amongst family members and roommates, and you shouldn’t need to be tied to a single iCloud account. Desktop mode For as good as the iPad Pro’s hardware, form factor, and the processor is, it’s still stuck with the same interface as its distant $329 cousin and heavily hamstrung by iOS. And as it stands, the Magic Keyboard is more of a convenient desktop accessory than a productivity tool, but giving it a new interface would make it far more useful. A desktop or pro mode would instantly change that. Google does something semejante with its Chrome tablets, but Apple could do it better with a hybrid macOS-iPadOS environment that seamlessly switches between tablet and desktop mode while unlocking the benefits of a touchpad with an intuitive, powerful interface. Pro apps Speaking of pro mode, if Apple wants the iPad to be an alternative to a desktop computer, it needs desktop-caliber apps. Plenty of third-party developers make them—Adobe, Pixelmator, Shapr3D—but Apple’s main apps are missing in action on the iPad. Where’s zaguero Cut Pro? Xcode? Logic Pro? Motion? It’s been more than six years since Apple released the iPad Pro and we’re still waiting for Apple to release a single pro app for it. With an M1 processor, the iPad Pro should run the same powerful apps as the Mac.Dominik Tomaszewski/IDG External preparador support The iPad technically supports external displays, but it’s about as rudimentary as it gets. When you plug an iPad into an external display, you’ll see an identical home screen to what’s on your iPad, with ugly black bars on each side. Yes, some apps take advantage of the unique dual-screen capabilities, such as Procreate and LumaFusion, but for the most part, the experience is less than great. Much like the Magic Keyboard suggestion above, we’d love to plug an iPad into an external display and get an expansive desktop like the Mac. Floating windows iPadOS 15 has a very cool feature called Quick Notes that lets you swipe from the edge of the screen to bring up a floating square that lets you quickly jot down your thoughts and then swipe it away. It’s a neat feature that’s frustrating because it’s so limited. If Apple can do this instant access with Notes, it can be done with a calculator, Music, Messages—any app that doesn’t need more than a small window and a few seconds of interactions. It’s not unlike our wish for interactive widgets on the iPhone, but they’d be even more useful on the iPad, where multitasking is key to the experience. Smarter multitasking Speaking of multitasking, iPadOS is in major need of an upgrade. The current incarnation is confusing and clunky, and Apple’s changes in iOS 15—the Shelf and three-dot menu—try to clear up some of the confusion while adding unnecessary layers of complexity. Someone new to the iPad can’t just turn on their tablet and instantly know how to multitask—and we’re willing to bet that many, if not most iPad users don’t even know how to use split-screen and slide over. On the Mac, there’s nothing to learn. Someone brand new to the platform will instantly know how to multitask without a tutorial or a learning curve. Multitasking on the iPad doesn’t have to be like the Mac, but it does need the same level of intuition. iPad Air (2022) Read our review Best Prices Today: $599 at Apple | $599.99 at Best Buy | $749 at Walmart Freedom from the grid We understand why Apple likes the grid on the iPhone. With a small screen, icons and apps need to be neat and organized, but that’s not as important with a tablet. Ever since its debut in 2010, the iPad has been saddled with the iPhone grid that’s too spacious, too confining, and too limiting. And now that we have desktop widgets, the constraints feel even more restrictive. Widgets on the iPad could be a better experience, but Apple stopped well short of giving us a customizable, personalized desktop. Rather than have them all jumbled at the top of the grid, icons should be able to be placed anywhere on the screen and locked to the closest grid. Then we could create an iPad desktop that we actually don’t mind looking at. Missing apps There are reports that Apple is planning to launch a few “fresh” apps at WWDC, but all we really want is the missing iOS apps to come to the iPad: notably, Weather, Wallet, Calculator, and Health. We don’t know why they’re not there, but it’s high time Apple added them. iPad
