We’ve had lossless for years and didn’t even know it!
The HomePod having wired in and out audio connections would have made all the difference (future proofed it), a great many more people would have bought the HomePod.
jeffreytgilbert said:So what i’m hearing is Apple is still ignoring consumer demand regarding an unhobbled iPad OS, and unhobbled macbook pro hardware. There is 0 justification for limiting the user facing cameras to the same resolution found on the very first iPhone. Video looks like hot garbage. “Facetime HD” is laughably bad. Do better. Also not a fan of seeing trails of red smear going across my “retina” display on a 2020 macbook pro. They’re telling us laptop users don’t demand better displays?On one side the hardware is bad. On the other side the software is bad. Can’t win!
As for whether there is a "justification" for the front-facing cameras having limited resolution, well, actually there is: it's called physics. Devices this thin don't yet have room for higher-res cameras. The parts haven't existed up to now. Apple's not making that choice; Apple doesn't even make those camera parts.

It's actually the A12 Bionic.
