Famous blogger JerryRigEverything got to the brand new iPhone 14 to subject it to his standard set of tests. In past years, the blogger only tested the older models, so now we will see how durable the younger one is.
The smartphone easily passed the most important and practical strength test, but there is one more detail worth noting, although it is not new.
As you can see in the video, the glass covering the camera is scratched by material with a hardness of 6 on the Mohs scale, while Apple talks about using sapphire crystal, which should be scratched by materials with a hardness of at least 9. So Apple is lying?
Let’s start with the fact that this situation was with last year’s iPhones, and not only with them. For example, Xiaomi Mi 9 had the same feature. In all these cases, the Diamond Selector device, if used, reacted to such glasses, and if you omit the details, it reacts to aluminum oxide, which is exactly sapphire. The fact that the resulting glass is much less hard probably indicates the presence of a large number of impurities. Thus, although this is not news in itself, we note that nothing has changed in this matter in the iPhone 14, and the camera glass must be handled with the same care as with the screen cover.
Don’t need Dynamic Island? Popular apps are in no hurry to adapt to the iPhone 14 Pro
The iPhone 14 Pro, which received the Dynamic Island interactive area in the front camera area, was introduced more than two weeks ago and released at the end of last week, but so far third-party developers are in no hurry to use Dynamic Island.
It was expected that Dynamic Island would initially only work with Apple applications, and developers would start releasing updates to their applications to adapt them to Dynamic Island.
Even before the launch, there was a lot of discussion about the fact that hugely popular apps in China, including WeChat and Tencent Video, are not optimized for use with Dynamic Island. WeChat notification pop-ups do not appear in the Dynamic Island interactive area, but simply under this notch, which does not respond to the application in any way.
WeChat update 8.0.29 for iOS was released yesterday, which fixed some compatibility issues on iPhone 14 series smartphones. However, there was no adaptation to Dynamic Island. Messages continue to appear under the notch. Other apps in China have also been updated but not supported.
Mydrivers writes that Apple has not yet opened the Dynamic Island Application Programming Interface (API) to third-party developers. For the first time this became known a few days ago.
It is worth adding that after the release of almost every new generation of iPhone, we are seeing a similar situation. At first, many shout “everything is gone”, “no innovations”, “a lot of bugs”, but in the end the problems are quickly resolved, and there are more than 100 million owners of new Apple smartphones in the world.
A step back from the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra received its first certification
A new Samsung phone with the catalog number SM-S9180 lit up in the base of the Chinese 3C regulator. This number is attributed to the promising flagship Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, and according to the certification body, it will take a step back in terms of charging power compared to the current Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The maximum charging power of the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be 25 W (voltage 11 V at a current of 2.25 A). In comparison, the Galaxy S22 Ultra consumes 45W of power when charging by wire.
However, there is a nuance here: with its 45 watts, the Galaxy S22 Ultra charges only slightly faster than the “25-watt” Galaxy S21 Ultra. The thing is that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is not able to consume all 45 watts of power for a long time, so there is not much difference between 45 and 25 watts (in the case of Samsung phones, of course). In other words, the charging speed of the Galaxy S23 Ultra can be at the level of the Galaxy S22 Ultra with the second one’s nominal ability to consume more power. But in any case, considering how far other flagships have come in terms of charging speed, Samsung’s marking time is not at all encouraging.
However, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be able to please others: a powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 single-chip platform and a new 200-megapixel sensor as part of the main camera.
Here is the news: it turns out that the iPhone 14 Pro has two types of always-on screen
According to XDA, the iPhone 14 Pro has not one always-on screen mode, but two, including a more familiar option, familiar to many Android device users.
The first mode has already been described by many bloggers and reviewers in their YouTube videos: in this mode, the screen brightness is reduced, while the image on the screen is preserved, wallpapers and widgets are visible.
The second mode allows you to make the screen completely black. Users can turn it on in Settings – Focus – Choose Focus Mode. In this mode, it is similar to Always on Display in Android smartphones. The background will be black, and the time, weather, and other information will be displayed in white.
Yes, officially, Apple calls this mode “focus mode”. Unlike Android phones, after enabling this mode, Do Not Disturb will always be displayed at the bottom of the phone interface.
Because the iPhone 14 Pro series uses an LTPO panel, the screenless mode refresh rate can be as low as 1Hz, so it consumes very little power.
Recall that in the normal mode of the always-on screen, the smartphone continues to consume quite a lot of energy, which reviewers noted.
