Insider Mark Gurman shared new data on the autumn presentation of Apple. In short, the Apple Watch will surprise with a new feature, and the iPhone will disappoint with a key characteristic.
In the Apple Watch Series, 8 will be able to determine the body temperature. It won’t measure it accurately, but it will warn you if you have a fever.
This will be the main innovation of the next generation of smartwatches. In the rest, radical changes are not expected. The display can be updated, the processor will be the same as in the Apple Watch 6 and 7.
But the news about the iPhone 14 is upsetting. As Gurman learned, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will use the same A15 Bionic processor as the iPhone 13 lineup. According to him, Apple is so focused on developing chipsets for the Mac that the iPhone had to fade into the background.
Gurman doesn’t explicitly say that this led to this but suggests that the focus on the Mac is an important factor, and Apple simply doesn’t have the resources to focus on other chipsets as well.
Gurman also notes that focusing on the Mac is probably not the only problem. Other factors are also likely to be dependence on other companies and rising costs caused by the global shortage of processors in the world.
