It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last couple of days. Let’s not waste time and take a look at the articles worth your attention right now.
According to the latest report from a reliable Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, the stock availability of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus still leaves much to be desired. Apple is still trying to catch up with the demand. This suggests that not all users will get their phones in time during the holiday season.
Apple stores the information about the incoming, outgoing, and missed calls in iCloud. The report comes from a Russian security firm Elcomsoft that managed to get the call logs from Apple’s cloud storage using special software.
According to some iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users, Apple’s new handsets are making hissing noise when loaded heavily. In particular, users claim that they hear strange subtle noise coming from the back of their iPhones each time they use resource-intensive apps or perform other tasks that load the processor and RAM. Most likely, the issue is somehow connected with the new A10 Fusion chip embedded into both iPhone models.
According to the latest report from iFixit, which is based on data from multiple third-party repair shops and posts on Apple Support Communities and other online resources, there is a major problem affecting many, if not all, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units. With time, users start seeing a gray bar at the top of the screen and face problems with touch input. But that is not the only bad news.
Apple has begun pulling the 2012 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro models from the shelves of Apple Stores in the United States. While the laptops are still available for purchase, they are no longer showcased to customers. They can’t take a closer look at the older devices and test them with their own hands. This may mean that Apple is preparing the ground for the rumored 13-inch MacBook Pro model with an OLED touch panel instead of function keys.
As you already know, earlier this week, Apple released a new 12-inch MacBook with better processor, battery and the Rose Gold color option. The device is already available for purchase in the USA and a number of other countries. The prices start at $1,299 for the entry-level configuration.
Since the laptop is in stock at many Apple Stores, first videos and reviews already start to appear on YouTube. One of such early videos shows the brand new Rose Gold MacBook cut with a grinder to reveal its internal components.
Even though the clip doesn’t show anything extraordinary, it’s actually quite entertaining. Take a look below.
According to the latest report from CNBC, Apple’s new 4-inch iPhone SE has good chances to become an incredibly popular device. Only in China the company has received more than 3.4 million pre-orders over the last couple of days. Gold handsets have been chosen by more than 1.3 million users and the pre-orders for the rose gold iPhone SE have made up another 1.2 million units. It should be noted, however, that today’s numbers are not official. Apple may announce the exact number of pre-ordered devices in a week or so, but now we have only the reports and estimates from third-party sources.
Earlier this month, Apple launched a new replacement program for faulty USB-C cables purchased together with 2015 MacBook units and began shipping the replacement cables to the customers free of charge. Today, a report appeared on the Internet suggesting that first customers have begun receiving their replacement cables and special letters from Apple explaining the terms of USB-C cable replacement program.
