iPhone 12 Pro vs. 15 Pro: New Features to Expect if You've Waited to Upgrade

  While year-over-year iPhone upgrades are not always groundbreaking, new features can begin to stack up over multiple generations. For example, the iPhone 15 Pro will be a notable upgrade for those who still have a three-year-old iPhone 12 Pro. If you are still using an iPhone 12 Pro and are considering upgrading to the iPhone 15 Pro when it launches later this year, we have put together a list of features to expect below. The list includes major changes introduced with the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro, as well as new features rumored for the iPhone 15 Pro. A17 chip vs. A14 chip:  The 5nm-based A16 chip in the iPhone 14 Pro is already up to 36% faster than the A14 chip in the iPhone 12 Pro, according to the Geekbench 6 benchmark. The iPhone 15 Pro will be equipped with the A17 chip, which is expected to be manufactured based on TSMC's latest 3nm process for even faster performance and improved power efficiency over the previous generation. USB-C port:  With the iPhone 15 Pro, A

5 Things You May Not Know About the M2 Chip

  If you've been following apple's world in recent weeks, you've definitely noticed the introduction of new laptops. Specifically, we've seen a completely redesigned MacBook Air and a new 13" MacBook Pro. Both of these machines hide in the bowels of the currently latest Apple Silicon chip with the designation M2. It is a direct successor to the original M1 chip, and in this article, we are going to talk about 5 things about it that you may not have known. Photo by Yu Kato on Unsplash Number of transistors Each chip has transistors that can be used to determine how complex the chip is. About 55 years ago, Moore's Law was even created on the subject of transistors. Specifically, it states that " the number of transistors that can be placed on an integrated circuit doubles roughly every 18 months while maintaining the same price."  In any case, the truth is that recently this law is no longer valid, as increasing the number of transistors on chips is be

The 7 worst iPhone apps for your privacy

 Apple has written data protection in big letters on its flags. Every operating system tries to protect your data as best as possible, but some apps circumvent this in a tricky way. We would like to introduce you to some "bad" apps. WhatsApp The popular messenger has been under criticism not just since the new privacy policies, which at this point have been put on hold until further notice. The Facebook subsidiary has long been considered our apps that sometimes know your most personal information. Check out alternatives like Signal or Threema. Facebook In late 2020, Facebook rebelled when Apple announced the app tracking feature to allow users: ins to choose whether or not to be tracked across multiple apps. The company felt its advertising revenue was in jeopardy. That's because every time you open the app, it learns the latest news about you and can thus shower you with even more targeted advertising. By the way, the Facebook app also collects data when you are not act

Apple's Craig Federighi explains why Stage Manager only appears for M1 iPads

 It is probably the biggest feature of iPadOS 16: Stage Manager. The new feature takes multitasking to a new level, catching up with the Mac as macOS Ventura also introduces Stage Manager. You can use multiple apps at the same time in customizable windows and even set up workstations for different tasks, so you can group apps directly.  It's also supposed to allow for quick switching. However, there is a big catch: The function for the release of the new software will only be available to a few users. It requires Apple's M1 chip, which is currently only installed in the iPad Pro (2021) and the iPad Air (5th generation, 2022). Thus, not only the iPad (9th generation) as well as the iPad mini (6th generation) are left out, but all iPad models without the M1.  That's why Stage Manager only runs on the M1 iPads. Last week, industry expert RenĂ© Ritchie had already asked Apple why only the latest models support Stage Manager. Apple replied:  "Delivering this experience at th

65 new iOS 16 features. All innovations and changes

 Presented at WWDC 2022, the mobile operating system for the iPhone caused a lot of questions and complaints. Some users did not appreciate the updated lock screen, attributing it to a feature of Android. Others praise the changes presented. In July, a public test version of the system will be available, anyone can install it. In the meantime, we, in turn, study the system in detail and look for all the smallest changes and chips. The article will be updated until the release of iOS 16 in the fall Lock Screen and Control Center 1. Widgets. Perhaps the most notable innovation in the operating system. Dynamic widgets appeared on the lock screen. They can be installed both from regular applications (Weather, Fitness, and so on) and from a third-party (support will appear later). 2. Customizable fonts. Now you can change the watch face visually. There are 6 different fonts available for three writing formats (Arabic, Indo-Arabic, and Devanagari). In addition, you can change the color of th

Why does an iPhone with Touch ID sometimes ask for an unlock code?

 To improve the security of user data, Apple has developed a special protocol to store Touch ID fingerprints. These data are not transmitted to Apple's servers and are stored only on the user's device. Of course, they are "hidden" in encrypted form and the decryption key is stored only in the iPhone's RAM. To prevent saved fingerprints or encryption keys from being read when you turn off your device, the system wipes them when you turn off your iPhone. With a new open, the smartphone generates a new key to access the fingerprint, for which it needs an unlock code. The decryption key is also deleted if the device is left unlocked for a long time or if several consecutive unlock attempts fail. In these cases, you also need to enter the passcode. It is not possible to disable such checks and it is in the interest of the user to enable it. On the one hand, you turn off and restart your iPhone infrequently, and on the other hand, regular reminders do not make you forge
