Stop me if you’ve think you’ve already heard this one: Apple is reportedly exploring ways to replace Intel processors in Mac computers with a version of in-house designed silicon technology that already powers its iOS, watchOS and tvOS devices.
Apple will likely outsource production of its new micro-LED display technology to avoid manufacturing snafus and because its secret California facility is reportedly too small for mass-production. The company wants to keep this promising proprietary technology away from its partners as long as possible, the story goes.
Apple’s annual software upgrades this fall will offer users plenty of new capabilities, including a revamped Stocks app for iPhone even though the company will push back some features that aren’t as polished to the following year.
If you have been impressed with the initial version of ARKit, iOS 11’s augmented reality framework, then you’re going to love enhanced augmented reality gaming features afforded by iOS 12 with the rumored multiplayer support for ARKit.
Bringing your photos to the Photos app on your iPhone and iPad may reportedly become a tad easier in iOS 12, which will reportedly remove some of the friction associated with importing photos into an iOS device on the go.
Among other planned enhancements, iOS 12 code-named “Peace” will reportedly integrate the Siri smart assistant more deeply into the iPhone’s search view in an effort to bring Siri intelligence to more places.
