Apple has already introduced its new desktop-class M1 chip into its iPad Pro. But what will the company do with it next? Last year, a report said that Apple could use it in iGlass, the company’s vision of a “smartglass” screen. If that were the case, then we could expect the next iPad to include an M1 chip.
Apple Watch Series 8 could feature a blood glucose sensor
Apple Watches have been adding useful health features over the last couple of years. With the Series 6 and Series 7 models, the company added blood oxygen monitoring and other health-related metrics. Apple is working with a sensor supplier to develop an infrared blood glucose sensor that can measure glucose and blood oxygen levels in real-time. The company plans to install the device on the back of the smartwatch.
Adding a blood glucose sensor to Apple’s watches has long been a goal of the company, which has tried to make its devices as health-related as possible. In addition to glucose sensors, Apple has also been working on other health-related sensors, like ECG recording and the detection of high and low-heart-rates. With this new sensor, Apple hopes to make the Series 8 the healthiest Apple Watch yet.
AirPods Pro has a new H2 chip
The new AirPods Pro feature an upgraded H2 chip that Apple says will improve the overall quality of the audio experience. The new chip has a lower power consumption and is said to reduce ambient noise. The chip is also designed to reduce distortion in the sound. The new AirPods Pros also feature a deeper bass and a wider frequency range.
The new chip also lets the AirPods Pro control media, listen to music, and field calls. You can pair them with compatible Apple devices and use Siri to make hands-free calls. The new AirPods also feature a new skin-detect sensor and improved battery life. The headphones are rechargeable with an Apple Watch charger, a MagSafe charger, or a Qi-certified charging mat. You can also use a Lightning cable to recharge them.
Low-cost iPad could be refreshed in 2022
Apple is expected to release a new low-cost iPad in 2022. The next-generation iPad is said to be built with a computer-grade processor. It could be powered by the same processor as the 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, as well as the Mac Mini. This means that the new device will have some serious power for a tablet – possibly the most powerful of any tablet in the $600 range.
Apple hasn’t released an official statement about the new model, but it has been rumored since early August. Some CAD renderings have appeared online, suggesting that it could feature an updated design. The rumored design features angular edges, a bump on the rear-facing camera, and a larger display. Another rumor suggests that the new iPad will have an embedded Home button, which would help distinguish it from the iPad Air. That move would be welcome news to many iPad users.
Messages app to warn children if a photo is sexually explicit
Apple has launched a new feature that will allow the Messages app to warn children if they receive photos that contain sexually explicit content. This feature will scan both incoming and outgoing photos to determine if a photo contains sexual content. If the photo is considered sexually explicit, a warning will appear on the child’s screen and the parent will be notified. The parent can then choose whether to allow their child to see the photo or not.
Apple has designed this new feature to help parents guide their children through online communication. The new features will let parents know if their children are receiving explicit photos and also keep their conversations private. According to Apple, the feature will automatically blur a photo that contains private parts of the body or contains harmful content. It will also provide helpful resources and reassurance for parents.
