    Downloading it now. 2.28 GB on an iPhone XS Max. Excited about this update on the iPhone. Been enjoying iPadOS 13.1 on iPad Pro. The public betas for me have been quite stable. iPadOS 13.0 had way more bugs. You’ll enjoy this update when it comes on Sept. 2th (just read it on 9to5Mac).
    @gilly33, can you explain which Sept. 2th you are referring to? And how does one pronounce Sept. 2th?

    Let me run it through my ML model... chirp, blurp, squeak..

    He meant Sept 24th

    Wonder how soon we will see the update to the HomePod? (audioOS - this labeling I'm not sure about).

    Thought it was mentioned that HomePod was getting updated later "this Fall". I'm guessing a new HomePod is coming out, the OS update will be released with it.

  • Apple Arcade is here, play over 100 exclusive titles for $4.99 a month

    Anyone play these games on an iPhone SE? LOL

    Worth it?


    Update...
    Downloaded Frogger (cute, fun game)... the SE screen is small and almost impossible to read the text!!! :( You can play but again, so very small.

    But... I'm a genius!!!
    I turned on "mirror display" in the control panel and set it to my AppleTV and... Works like a charm! Good temporary work around until my iPad can join in on the fun.

  • Apple's Phil Schiller and Anand Shimpi tease details of A13 Bionic chip

    There seems be a misunderstanding making its way around the web...

    octa-core neural engine for machine intelligence functions that can run a trillion operations per second

    That's from the Wired article and I've read it elsewhere... This is false. The Neural Engine in the A12 performs 5 trillion ops. The NE in the A13 has a 20% performance increase over that; 6 trillion.

    The "trillion operations per second" figure being regurgitated over and over is the performance of the CPU with its new ML accelerators.


    Update: The Wired articles was updated...
    octa-core neural engine for machine intelligence functions that can run over five trillion operations per second

    So what would Series 4 battery life be if they implemented always-on display in a software update?

    Horrendous. Key piece of hardware is missing... the controller that can drop the refresh rate from 60Hz down to 1Hz.
