Machine learning

The magic of machine learningThe machine learning technologies in the M1 chip open up a world of possibilities for Mac apps. Machine learning lets apps build and apply models based on massive amounts of data — to do things like identify friends and family in photos and videos, interpret natural language for dictation, and even analyze audio to recognize laughter, applause, and more. And that data is processed on device to protect your privacy — all at lightning speed.

Neural EngineThe dedicated 16-core Neural Engine in the M1 chip can execute up to a staggering 11 trillion operations per second, powering workflows you couldn’t imagine before — like enabling the djay Pro AI app to isolate instrumentals and vocals of any song in real time.

Optimized for machine learningThe entire M1 chip is engineered for machine learning. The CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine are each designed for different types of machine learning workloads — and the ML performance controller distributes ML tasks to the right places to maximize performance.

ML acceleratorsThe two dedicated ML accelerators are built for fast matrix multiplication, executing up to one trillion operations per second — perfect for low-latency ML tasks that don’t require the massive power of the Neural Engine.

macOS Big Sur

The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.
Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best-in-class security. It‘s our most powerful software ever — running on our most advanced hardware yet.

The iPhone 12 and more..

(Image credit:Apple)

Apple made historical moment once again yesterday by announcing their latest flagship with 5G capability that everyone is waiting for. This year Apple announced iPhone 12 mini claiming it’s the world smallest 5G smartphone. Above lineup is what you seeing for 2020, Apple made three amazing previous models which are iPhone SE, iPhone XR and iPhone 11 available to the market yet because of the value and reasonable price.

This is one of four new phones from the company – it’s joined by the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. So what do we know about the new iPhone so far? Not everything, but quite a lot. The company has confirmed that it’ll be 5G-ready, allowing you to enjoy super-fast download and browsing speeds on your phone.

The iPhone 12 release date is set for October 23, and you’ll be able to pre-order the phone from this Friday, October 16. You won’t be able to pre-order the iPhone 12 mini until November 6, and the phone will be out on November 13. Apple has confirmed the iPhone 12 price will start at $799 in the US, which is $100 more than the iPhone 11 range. That’s likely because of the introduction of 5G technology.

Blast past fast.
5G speed. A14 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone.
An edge-to-edge OLED display. Ceramic Shield with four times better drop performance. And Night mode on every camera. iPhone 12 has it all — in two perfect sizes.

A14 Bionic is the fastest chip in a smartphone.

Apple this year did the same thing as previous year which include it’s faster chip into 4 model. What’s new in A14 chip? It pushes what’s possible. Like crunching trillions of operations on the Neural Engine. Or shooting in Dolby Vision even pro movie cameras can’t do that. It’s superefficient for great battery life. And it’s ahead of its time, prepared to power pretty much anything that comes next. With that mentioned, iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 pro and 12 pro max will have the same chipset, the A14 Bionic. Apple also claim that the display on iPhone 12 models vastly more contrast. Incredible color accuracy. A huge jump in pixel density. OLED delivers brighter bright, darker blacks, and higher resolution for everything you look at and it goes all the way to the edge.

Taking about camera, we don’t know much yet but Apple claim that they’re improving the dark mode on iPhone 12 models. With both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras now have Night mode and it’s better than ever at capturing incredible low-light shots. The new Wide camera brings in 27 percent more light. So whether you take photos by day or by moonlight, you’ll get a level of detail and color that wasn’t possible before.

This year apple including dolby video capturing, claiming the first ever built in into a smartphone. As for the weight and dimensions, the iPhone 12 mini is 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4mm and 133g, the iPhone 12 is 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4mm and 162g, the iPhone 12 Pro is 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4mm and 187g, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max is 160.8 x 78.1 x 7.4mm and 226g.

We’ve yet to hear how big the battery is in the iPhone 12, and it’s unlikely that we’ll learn that stat until someone gets the phone in their hand and does a teardown.

The company claims it’ll last for 16 hours of video playback (that’s video stored on the phone’s memory rather than being streamed) but we won’t know the battery life for certain until we’ve tested the phone.

Fast-charging is available on the phone that can get the battery from zero to 50% in half an hour, but you’ll need to buy a separate 20W charger to be able to get that feature.

We do know that Apple has improved its wireless charging offering here. The big improvement is called MagSafe, which is essentially a magnet within the phone that allows you to attach a wireless charging pad to the device.

Why would it do that? It’s to make sure your phone doesn’t slip off of said charger and stop charging when you’re using it.

MagSafe charging seems to be faster than Qi wireless charging too. According to Apple’s website, MagSafe will use 15W charging, which Qi wireless charging on the iPhone 12 is limited to 7.5W.

The technology also allows accessory manufacturers to make in-car products, cases and more too.

Apple says it’ll be creating its own accessories, but we can also expect to see new products from third-party manufacturers, with the company confirming that Belkin is working on accessories already.

The downside of this year release is the only thing comes in the box is the phone itself and a usb-c to lightning cable. There will be no adapter included in the box. Who’s upgrading?

Four iPhone 12 models

The following week’s “Hey, Speed” occasion will zero in fundamentally on Apple’s all-new iPhone 12 setup. Apple will declare four new iPhone 12 models, going from 5.4 creeps to 6.7 crawls in screen size and from $699 to $1,099 in cost.

As far as plan, the iPhone 12 arrangement will highlight a boxier body that is like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. This implies we can expect a plan that looks more like the freshest iPad Pro with level edges. As of now, the iPhone 11 Pro highlights a mixed plan between the glass of the presentation and the tempered steel edges. This varies from the iPhone 4 and iPad Pro, which are totally gotten down to business around the sides.

Each of the four of Apple’s new iPhone 12 models will include OLED shows unexpectedly. Beforehand, just the best quality iPhone models utilized OLED shows, with Apple utilizing LCD in the lower-end models. Apple will advertise these new shows as “Super Retina XDR,” and there will likewise be another glass innovation on the front with expanded solidness.

Every one of the four iPhone 12 variations will likewise include 5G network unexpectedly. Gossipy tidbits right now induce that iPhone 12 models in the United States will incorporate help for mmWave 5G just as sub-6Ghz 5G, while models sold in different nations will just incorporate the last mentioned. There will likewise be something many refer to as Smart Data Mode to distribute 4G/5G as per application transmission capacity, with the end goal that 5G would possibly be utilized when important to improve battery life.

The differentiator other than screen size between the iPhone 12 setup will be camera innovation. Here are the subtleties, as per an ongoing report.

Apple is additionally supposed to be creating two new remote chargers that it could present close by the iPhone 12 setup. This comes after Apple dropped its AirPower remote charger in 2019, preceding it was even delivered to general society over quality control and overheating concerns.

Though AirPower was intended to include a “drop anyplace” plan, Apple’s new remote chargers are said to utilize an attractive arrangement of sorts. Indeed, Apple will purportedly restore the well known “MagSafe” marking for two of these new chargers that will be delivered close by the iPhone 12.

In September, written about a video that professed to show Apple’s attractive remote charger model. Bits of gossip have likewise recommended that the iPhone 12 will incorporate another inherent ring of magnets in the back to take into account new extras.

As per bits of gossip, Apple will deliver two adaptations of the attractive remote chargers this year, marked as the MagSafe Charger and the MagSafe Duo Charger. This infers that we will see a littler MagSafe charger that can just charge one gadget, and another that is marginally bigger with help for charging two gadgets.

Different insights concerning these MagSafe remote chargers are hazy, yet we ought to hope to learn more on October 13.

HomePod Mini

Something different we ought to expect at Apple’s “Hi, Speed” occasion tomorrow is the presentation of the HomePod mini, as indicated by reports. Gossipy tidbits at present demonstrate that the HomePod scaled down will be reported on tomorrow October 13, made accessible for pre-request on November 6, and delivered on November 16.

HomePod mini usual will purportedly cost just $99(RM410.60 or more) and measure in at 3.3 inches. It is supposed to be fueled by Apple’s S5 processor, which is a similar processor that controls the Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 5. This is generally a large portion of the size of the current HomePod, which quantifies in at 6.8 inches tall.

At $99(RM410.60 or more), the HomePod mini expected appears to be a reasonable contender to Amazon Echo lineup, which is likely aspect of Apple’s system of extending Siri to more extensive client base. We do not has any update of 2020 full-size HomePod yet.

AirPods Studio

For longer than a year at this point, reports have been flowing proposing that Apple will before long dispatch its own pair of over-ear earphones. These are accepted to exist independently from the Beats brand and offer highlights, for example, head and neck recognition, custom equalizer settings, and that’s just the beginning.

TechNova has additionally discovered proof of supposed AirPods Studio in the spilled iOS 14 beta code, including resources appearing in any event two shading alternatives for the new frill. Concerning the value, gossipy tidbits propose that it will cost $349(RM1447.48 or more) for a lower-end “Active/Sport” variation and up to $599(RM2484.35 or more) for an “Luxury” rendition produced using cowhide and metal.

While it would totally bode well for Apple to disclose its AirPods Studio close by the iPhone 12, Jon Prosser as of late revealed that Apple isn’t exactly prepared to report the item at this time. It’s consistently conceivable that this will change, however for the time being, AirPods Studio appear to be more probable at some point in November or into 2021.

AirTags

For over a year, bits of gossip have shown that Apple is building up its own Tile-like thing trackers. In June 2019, TechNova covered resources inside iOS 13 that referred to an item type “Tag1,1.” Since at that point, found proof of the “AirTags” name and references even showed up in a video distributed by Apple itself.

We at first anticipated that AirTags should be delivered during the iPhone 11 occasion a year ago, at that point at WWDC 2020, at that point during Apple’s September occasion this year. Most as of late, talk proposed that Apple had deferred AirTags until March 2021, flagging that we ought not anticipate a delivery at the October 13 occasion.

New Apple TV

Apple is additionally supposedly dealing with another Apple TV and another Siri distant. Proof of another Apple TV equipment revive has been hovering around in iOS code for some time, and a report as of late showed that one of the progressions will be a quicker chip for improved gaming execution.

With respect to the new Apple TV far off, Bloomberg has recommended that one of the overhauls will be uphold for the Find My application. This will make it simpler for individuals to find a far off when it disappears in the house. Regardless of whether different enhancements are additionally coming up for the disputable Siri far off is not yet clear.

It’s conceivable that the new Apple TV is present during its October 13 occasion, however it could likewise be put something aside for the near future or right on time one year from now.
