The official news today begin with Samsung and the whole drama they've been going through after some videos revealed that they were throttling their devices. If you haven't been paying attention the situation has been, quote unquote, handled as they started rolling up the update that would let you turn GOS off, but now we have a statement from the CEO. On it, he mentions that GOS was designed to optimize the smartphone's performance during gaming", and he apologized during their shareholders meeting, saying that Samsung would continue to listen to customers more closely to prevent an issue from happening again. If you haven't updated your phone I suggest you should as 10,000 apps were affected by it, and according to the tests, the S22 Series was being affected more than others. Now, you should be able to disable it if you want to but if your phone is out of warranty, they won't repair it for free on overheating issues. Let us know if you guys have seen any differences after the update. Though it hasn't arrived to my phone just yet.
Let's move on to Apple for the rest of the show as there's been a frenzy of leaks for different products since yesterday. First off, we have some new reports from Ming Chi Kuo about displays. About a week ago he tweeted out that Apple might not launch any products with mini-LED displays in 2022 due to cost concerns. Earlier today he quote tweeted to clarify that there won't be any products with new mini-LED display sizes.. And this doesn't mean we won't be getting anything with this technology this year, as he then further clarified via email that products with existing mini-LED displays like the 12.9-inch iPad Pro might be updated, but other products like the 11-inch iPad won't be making the change. At least not during 2022. If this is accurate, it goes against Ross Young's report claiming that we will be getting a new 27-inch Pro Display with this technology around June.. Keep in mind both Ross and Kuo have some of the best track records in the industry, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see on this one.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's talk about the future of Apple Silicon. Yes, the M1 family is now complete with the M1 Ultra but, it looks like next generation might be going past Ultra. We have a new report from Mark Gurman and Bloomberg, claiming that Apple will add an "Extreme" variant to the M2 family. Apparently this one would bring 48 CPU cores and up to 128 GPU cores which is essentially double the M1 Ultra and I'm wondering if they'll be using Ultra Fusion to literally put two M2 Ultra's together. Of course, this chip would come with the Mac Pro the company teased at their last event, but with the M1 Ultra being so powerful, I don't know if it would make it on to any other products, like an iMac Pro or a separate variant of the Studio. Gurman also gave us a roadmap for both Pro and Consumer products and according to this, we should be getting an iMac Pro, a new Pro Display and refreshes to other products like the MacBook Air, regular iMac and more... So yeah, M2 Extreme... And I guess I'm assuming WWDC will be when we get the announcement with the rest of the M2 family?
And finally, for the hottest news today, let's stick to Apple once again but move on to the iPhone 14 as we finally get some new leaks when it comes to the design. We have some new CAD renders from 91Mobiles, showcasing the iPhone 14 Pro's design that confirm some leaks but also debunk others. Starting with the obvious, yes, the pill and punch hole combo is here but at least in these CAD renders it doesn't look as intrusive as we thought it would be... It's still not small by any means but I don't think we'll have that much of a hard time getting used to it. When you turn the phone around we can see the triple camera array, sitting on the same camera hump we got with the 13 Pro. Yes... I said camera hump. This goes against all the leaks we've seen claiming that it would bring a flushed back. We can also see that the volume rockers will remain the same as we thought they would be circular like the ones on the OG iPhone 4... Assuming they don't want to make those borders too thin in the borders for Zack's shelf of shame.. Other changes include the Pros being slightly taller than the regular 14's unlike the previous years, and in case you had a small drop of hope... The lightning port is still here. Pretty busy week for iPhone leaks with the previous rumors hinting that not all models will get a new processor and this update to the leaked design
