Someone is ready for a break. A flurry of hardware and software releases following Apple's "Far Out" event earlier this month is finally on a bit of a pause, with the Apple Watch Ultra and second- generation AirPods Pro now making their way into customers' hands.
This week saw the two major hardware releases, but also an important update addressing some bugs with the latest iPhone models andiOS 16 in general, while the more significantiOS 16.1 update continues through the testing phase. As we continue to explore everything new in Apple's latest releases, be sure to read on below for details.
Apple has released a new version of its operating system. There is an issue with the rear camera on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The software update addresses an issue with excessive copy and paste permission prompt on all iPhones, as well as an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some displays.
Live Activities in third-party apps, a new Clean Energy Charging feature in the United States, the availability of Apple Fitness+ without an Apple Watch, and more are some of the things that are being tested by Apple.
We've had a chance to go hands-on with the upgraded earbuds, which are arriving to customers.
We rounded up both written and video reviews from channels that had early access to more thorough looks. Sound quality, noise cancellation, battery life, and more were tested by the reviewers.
The Apple Watch Ultra is now available for pre-order as the first pre-orders have begun.
We've gone hands-on for an early unboxing and initial impressions of the Apple Watch Ultra, which is larger and better than any other Apple Watch model, but isn't considered to be a "Garmin killer" yet.
The public and developers are able to participate in the second version of the operating system. There are a number of new features and changes in the latest version of the software.
We've put together a list of all the new features in the second version of the operating system, so be sure to check it out if you install it on your phone.
The new car crash detection feature on all iPhone 14 models is hard to test given that reviewers don't want to risk physical injuries, but one YouTuber has managed to test the feature in a self driving car
The video does not serve as a scientific test of the feature and is in a controlled environment, so it should not be considered pure entertainment.
We had Sara Dietschy join us this week on The Mac Rumors Show to talk about our experiences with the new features of the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.
