  • Apple Watch Ultra is impressive, but can't replace my dive watch just yet

    Is it established that the Ultra doesn’t have an as-yet unannounced integration with air tank monitoring devices?

  • TSMC's 3nm chips won't be ready in time for 2022 MacBook Pros, Kuo says

    Even if the 3nm process was ready, Apple wouldn’t jump to it. They take measured steps to have something for the next product iteration, and to hold to the margins they currently get from the (cheaper!) 5nm process. The only reason they would jump is competitive pressure, and no-one else is close.

  • TikTok monitors everything users type when using in-app browser

    In-AP browsers are evil and Apple should reject them.

  • How Apple could approach a folding iPhone

    thrang said:
    I don't understand the mass-market use case for a foldable phone. The way the vast majority of us utilize a phone - constantly referencing and glancing at it for dozens of tasks, from morning to night, who wants to constantly open and close it? What purpose does it serve? It will only be thicker to put in your pocket.

    Perhaps there is some use case for the iPad, given its use is a bit more measured and purposeful, and perhaps it integrates a digital keyboard into the foldout. Still, I cannot envision it having very large interest.
    We’re men, pocket sounds fine. For a woman with a petite purse, a folding phone would be great, like a compact. So this might be too niche and why would a watch not serve better?

    IMHO folding phones are too thick. A successful folding phone would be about as thick, folded, as an iPhone. That’s tough.

  • Apple had a M1 Mac Pro, but decided to wait for M2 Extreme

    As far as we know, M1 and M2 don’t have PCIe, so I’m still curious over how Apple plan to architect more CPUs into M-series systems. Ultra uses a highly specialised interconnect to bridge just 2 SoC’s, and there have been no hints that this can scale to more. My hunch is on a new SoC for the Pro which does have an expansion bus. It would be unique, but that’s what you can do when you make your own chips.
