It Might Be Time to Say Goodbye to Apple’s Cheapest iPhone

It Might Be Time to Say Goodbye to Apple’s Cheapest iPhone

January 18, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Tech News


It seems sense to want an iPhone that performs almost as well as the iPhone 14 while costing around half as much. Evidently, no. If analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is to be believed, Apple may decide against releasing the next generation of its budget-friendly iPhone SE next year.

On Jan. 6, Kuo stated in a Medium article that “the supply chain has received orders from Apple indicating that the manufacturing and distribution plans for the 2024 iPhone SE 4 have been scrapped rather than delayed.”

The 2024 iPhone SE could have been scrapped by Apple as its Pro line becomes more well-liked

If Kuo’s forecasts come true, Apple alone will be aware of the cancellation’s rationale. However, studies and news reports indicate that there could be a straightforward solution.

The popularity of more costly iPhone models may make Apple feel less motivated to pursue less expensive devices like the iPhone SE. The third-generation iPhone SE, which was released in March, has a starting price of $429 and is effectively an iPhone 8 with an iPhone 13’s internals.

In his iPhone SE (2022) review, CNET’s Patrick Holland dubbed it a “mind-blowing deal,” but he also pointed out missing features that made it feel archaic, like as the absence of a full-screen design or night mode for the camera.

Similar strategies were used in earlier iterations of the iPhone SE; the 2020 model, for example, basically had the same design but used the iPhone 11’s processor. The 2016 variant combined an iPhone 6S chipset with an iPhone 5S chassis. According to YouTube celebrity and gadget leaker Jon Prosser, a speculated fourth-generation iPhone SE would feature a new design that was reminiscent to the iPhone XR.

Think about the modifications Apple just made to its iPhone 14 range to get a sense of why it may have decided to scrap the upcoming iPhone SE. In contrast to the previous two years, Apple did not introduce a more affordable “Mini” model of their brand-new flagship iPhone in 2022. Instead, it unveiled the iPhone 14 Plus, a bigger version of the standard iPhone 14 that costs $100 more than the $799 model. This move raises the entry-level price for consumers.

The move may be explained in part by the fact that more costly iPhones frequently sell well, according to the evidence. According to Counterpoint Research, the average selling price of an iPhone increased 7% year over year in the third quarter of 2022.

Additionally, the market research company stated in June that Apple held a 62% share of the worldwide premium phone market in the first quarter of 2022. Considering that the third-generation iPhone SE starts at $429, it’s vital to keep in mind that Counterpoint considers premium phones to be those that cost $400 or more. However, the research did state that the iPhone 13 series was mostly responsible for Apple’s gain in the premium segment.

According to Josh Lowitz of Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, during the previous two years, the iPhone SE has barely contributed to 5% to 8% of quarterly US iPhone sales. According to Munster, the Pro versions generally account for 35% to 40% of sales of the most recent iPhone models in a given year, while the iPhone SE accounts for roughly 20%.

The $100 price difference, or even a $200 price difference, “isn’t that much each month because you’re paying over such a long period of time,” said Lowitz.

Questions regarding the future of the SE line in general are raised by the possibility that Apple may have scrapped the 2024 iPhone SE. In 2020, Apple introduced the SE logo on the Apple Watch for the first time, and in September, the company released a follow-up to that device.

Apple Launches New M2 Pro & M2 Max Chips In The MacBook Pro & Mac Mini

Apple Launches New M2 Pro & M2 Max Chips In The MacBook Pro & Mac Mini

January 18, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Tech News


The M2 Pro and M2 Max versions of Apple’s M-series processors have been added, and the upgraded 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models as well as the Mac Mini desktop are now available with these chips.

According to Apple, the M2 Pro architecture is scaled up to provide up to a 32GB of rapid unified memory, a 12-core CPU, and a 19-core GPU. The features of M2 Pro are expanded upon by M2 Max, which offers a GPU with up to 38 cores, twice the unified memory bandwidth, and up to 96GB of unified memory.

The latest 14-inch and 16-inch MacBooks promise battery life up to 22 hours and add Wi-Fi 6E

The M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max CPUs from the older models have been replaced by the new chips in the new MacBooks and Mac Mini, which have the same design as their predecessors. The M1 Pro and M1 Max variants of the MacBook Pro as well as the M1 Mac Mini have all been tested and reviewed in the past.

M2 Pro/Max added to MacBook Pro

When the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro computers were introduced in October 2021, a change from the prior MacBooks’ softly bent lids to a more structured, squared-off form with a flat lid and sharp corners became apparent. These computers also lacked the touch bar interface found on earlier MacBook Pro models; only the 2022 M2 13-inch MacBook Pro retains this functionality along with the vintage appearance and feel (for now).

Apple’s claim of a battery life of up to 22 hours—the “longest battery life ever in a Mac”—is the largest change, aside from the processor generation. Additionally, the MacBook Pro upgrades its Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi 6E from Wi-Fi 6 and has an HDMI connector that now supports 4K and 8K screens at up to 240Hz and 60Hz, respectively.

According to Apple, the M2 Pro processor does image processing in Photoshop up to 40% quicker than the M1 Pro, while the M2 Max can render effects in Cinema 4D and color grade in DaVinci Resolve up to 30% faster than the M1 Max.

Price:

The price for the new 16-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro starts at $2,499 (£2,699, AU$3,999), while the price for the 14-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro is $1,999 (£2,149, AU$3,199).

The First Upgrade To The Mac Mini Since 2020

The M1 CPU, which eschewed Intel, was added to the Mac Mini at its most recent version in 2020. The M2 and M2 Pro chips are both available in the updated version.

According to Apple, the M2 version of Photoshop can perform up to 50% quicker than the M1 version, while the M2 Pro edition of Final Cut Pro can transcode up to 4.2 times faster than the M1 Mac Mini. There wasn’t a Mac Mini M1 Pro version available for direct comparison.

A variant of the Intel Mac Mini, which was still available (along with the M1 version) until this announcement, has likewise been discontinued by Apple. The only remaining Intel-based Mac that you can buy straight from Apple is the Mac Studio desktop. If you really, certainly must have one, several merchants, like Best Buy, still carry the Intel Mac Mini.

For the M2 version of the new model, prices begin at $599 (£649, AU$999), and for the M2 Pro version, they start at $1,299 (£1,399, AU$1,999).

The new Mac Mini and MacBook Pro will both be available for pre-order starting on January 17 and will begin shipping to consumers and retail locations on January 24.

The 24-inch iMac, the Mac Studio, and the Mac Pro desktop are further items that might potentially receive M2, M2 Pro, or M2 Max processor improvements later in 2022.

And no, there isn’t a touchscreen yet, despite some recent speculations.

Creators of Youtube Shorts Will Start Receiving Ad Money From YouTube

Creators of Youtube Shorts Will Start Receiving Ad Money From YouTube

January 10, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Tech News


The eagerly anticipated initiative on YouTube that will let Shorts artists to make money from ads is almost set to launch on February 1.

Creators have until July 10 to follow and accept the terms of the Partner Program agreement that the firm issued.

The “Monetization Modules” that YouTube has released will give creators more control over their YouTube income. For creators to reach their full earning potential, the site advises embracing all modules.

Creators will receive 45% of income after the video-streaming platform takes a 55% cut.

Creators with at least 1,000 followers and more than 10 million views on Shorts over a 90-day period will be able to apply for the Partner Program, the video streaming platform earlier stated in a statement.

The $100 million creator fund will be eliminated with Shorts revenue sharing, although YouTube anticipates receiving more fund revenues than it did with its fund.

While watching Shorts on the Feed, users will see advertisements between each one. At the conclusion of each month, the money made from the advertising will be utilized to compensate music licensing firms and creators through a common pool.

The quantity of musical tracks that creators include in their Shorts will decide how much money is in the creator pool. If there is no music in a clip, the creator pool will receive all of the earnings.

Based on a creator’s percentage of all Shorts views, the streaming platform will decide how the creator pool will be divided.

Creators will receive 45% of the money after YouTube takes its part of 55%.
