Apple has reported for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2023, which ended on July 1st.
The company’s revenue decreased from 82.96 to 81.80 billion dollars. Operating profit remained virtually unchanged at $23 billion. Reading the same profit even slightly increased: from 19.44 to 19.88 billion dollars.
The company’s sales rose slightly in Europe and China, but declined slightly in all other major markets mentioned in the report.
iPhone sales in terms of money also sank: from 40.67 to 39.67 billion dollars. Mac sales fell the most, from $7.38 billion to $6.84 billion. The biggest drop was in tablets, with revenue falling from $7.22 billion to $5.79 billion.
But sales of accessories and wearable and home electronics grew: from 8.1 to 8.28 billion dollars. As expected, services grew the most: from $19.6 billion to $21.2 billion, which was a new record. That is, revenue from services exceeded half of the revenue from the iPhone and turned out to be more than the revenue from sales of all Apple products in general, not counting smartphones. Apparently for the first time.
Solving the overheating problem: iPhone 15 Pro Max, S23 Ultra and Pixel 7 Pro were “tortured” by rain, water and complete freezing in a block of ice
Apple’s newest top smartphone continues to be tested online in a variety of ways, testing the limits of patience and what is acceptable. This time, the thematic resource TechDroider, known for its tests, published a video where three competing flagship smartphones are subjected to “torture in freezing water.”
In the announcement for the video, TechDroider joked:
iPhone 15 Pro Max overheating? Here’s a quick solution.
In the video itself, the iPhone 15 Pro Max, Samsung S23 Ultra and Pixel 7 Pro are tested together for resistance to freezing water. All three devices received IP68 protection against water and dust, and TechDroider decided to find out how they would behave after 6 hours of freezing.
To begin with, the smartphones were tested in rain and shower, as a result, all survived and showed no signs of moisture getting inside. Then the smartphones were placed in a container of water. At this stage, the author discovered that the S Pen stylus continues to work correctly with the Galaxy S23 Ultra even under water. As a result, all smartphones issued a warning about water getting into the USB Type-C port, and the Pixel 7 Pro even notified the owner when the connector was dry and charging became safe.
The final freezing and defrosting led to minor problems. Thus, condensation appeared in the camera block of the iPhone 15 Pro Max and all three smartphones lost volume and correct operation of the speakers. After the smartphones were allowed to rest for 24 hours without drowning or freezing, they began to work again as before. However, the iPhone 15 Pro Max required a reboot to fully restore wired charging functionality.
Nokia has returned to the smartphone market? The company has released the HHRA501x and IS540.1 devices, but it calls them industrial laptops
Nokia has, in a sense, returned to the smartphone market. New products called Nokia HHRA501x and Nokia IS540.1 were released by Finnish Nokia, and not by HBM Global. True, these are not exactly smartphones.
Nokia itself in a press release calls the devices industrial portable computers. The devices are designed for use in harsh industrial environments and are well protected – these are not everyday consumer solutions.
In addition to protection from water and dust (IP68) and compliance with the MIL-STD-810H standard, the new products offer touch-sensitive screens with gloves, slots for two SIM cards and eSIM support, replaceable batteries, EMBMS support, a 16-pin connector for connecting accessories and much more.
More familiar technical parameters are not indicated on the site, but third-party resources say that the Nokia IS540.1 has a six-inch screen, Qualcomm QCM6490 SoC, 8/128 GB of memory, a 48-megapixel camera and a 4400 mAh battery. All this runs on Android 12.
The old Xiaomi Mi 10S and Mi 10 Pro are better than the latest iPhone 15 Pro Max. The sound subsystem of an Apple smartphone has been tested by DxOmark specialists
The iPhone 15 Pro Max, like all other Apple smartphones, offers very high-quality speakers. Far from being the best on the market. At least, judging by DxOMark tests.
The smartphone scored 143 points, taking 12th place and becoming one step higher than its predecessor. Above are mostly gaming smartphones, which often stand out for their excellent stereo sound. But also better than the new iPhone were Honor Magic3 Pro+, Huawei Mate 50 Pro and the already middle-aged Xiaomi Mi 10S and Mi 10 Pro.
At the same time, the iPhone 15 Pro Max outperforms all other 2023 flagships that are in the source database. For example, the Galaxy S23 Ultra has 139 points.
It can also be noted that the new Apple product became the best in the DxOMark rating in terms of the number of sound artifacts during recording, although during playback everything is completely different: the device has 91 points against a record 157 points.
