If you want a periscope you will have to buy

Contrary to some recent rumors, only the most expensive iPhone in the line is likely to get a periscope camera next year as well.

If you want a “periscope”, you will have to buy the most expensive iPhone 16. Such a camera will be exclusive to the older version in 2024

Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that only the iPhone 16 Pro Max or iPhone 16 Ultra will get such a camera in 2024 if Apple changes its name. Recall that such a camera is already expected in the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which Kuo also confirms.

Thus, the periscope camera will be one of the factors in favor of the most expensive iPhone for at least two years, which, according to the latest leaks and rumors, is exactly what Apple needs, which wants to shift the focus in favor of more expensive smartphones in order to increase the average price of the device sold.

What will be the periscope module of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is not yet clear, but there is evidence that this will be a new LG development with a variable zoom value.

Against these AMD processors will be the Intel Processor CPU

Notebooks based on AMD’s Mendocino line of APUs are beginning to appear on the market. And a review of the first such model has already appeared on the Web.

We are talking about a laptop Acer Aspire 3 (A315-24P-R758B) worth $400. For this money, the buyer will receive a 15-inch mobile PC with 8 GB of LPDDR5 memory, a 128 GB SSD and a Ryzen 3 7320U APU, which includes four Zen 2 cores at up to 4.1 GHz and a Radeon 610M GPU with RDNA 2 architecture, but only 128 stream processors.

Unfortunately, the authors of the Liliputing site did not test the system in any real applications for work, but on the other hand, Mendocino APUs are not focused on some kind of heavy load.

In benchmarks, as we can see, the Ryzen 3 7320U processor shows itself approximately at the level of the Core i5-1130G / 1135G7, but the graphics core loses to all test participants, and noticeably. For games, such a laptop can only be used if these same games are very undemanding and / or old.

At the same time, the author of the article noted that in everyday tasks in Chrome, GIMP, Irfanview and LibreOffice, the new Acer behaves very well, and there is no particular difference with much more expensive laptops.

As for autonomy, it is at an average level. In particular, watching YouTube at 60% screen brightness completely drained the laptop in seven hours.

At the same time, this Aspire 3 model offers Wi-Fi 6, USB-C 3.2, Bluetooth 5.2, HDMI 2.1, USB-C charging and an 18.8 mm thick case with a weight of 1.78 kg.

It is worth noting that laptops with Ryzen 3 7320U and other Mendocino APUs play in the same price segment, where there will be models on the new Intel Processor CPUs that have replaced Celeron and Pentium.

Apple has been five years where is the change Reviews

Reviews of the new Apple HomePod smart speaker, which the company announced earlier this month, have appeared on the Web.

Apple has been five years, where is the change?  Reviews have shown that the second generation HomePod sounds almost identical to the first

The device has not changed much in appearance, it has acquired a small number of new features, but the layout of the speakers has changed, and there are fewer of them. However, it had little effect on the sound.

Reviewers note that in general, the second generation of HomePod sounds very similar to the first, except that in some scenarios the sound of the new model feels a little better. Basically, journalists and bloggers agree that those who liked the sound of the original model will like the sound of the new speaker.

In terms of hardware, there are five tweeters, a woofer and an array of four microphones. It’s a little different from the original HomePod, which had seven tweeters to start with, but the quality is just as excellent. Make no mistake, the second generation HomePod sounds fantastic.

At the midrange, you get detailed, crisp, and crystal-clear vocals, while at the low end, the HomePod delivers plenty of bass. It is beautiful and deep for its size, yet offers expression at the same time. It’s not as bassy as the Sonos Five, which is a bigger, more expensive speaker, and the HomePod may sound a little less clear in the midrange when playing tracks like the Rumble Skrillex compared to the Five, but overall it’s still very impressive

As for the rest, journalists noted the improved capabilities of Siri, although there are still complaints about the voice assistant.

In general, the new model has changed very little as an acoustic system, and new features, including Matter support for smart home, are no longer needed by everyone. But then, recall, the second-generation HomePod costs less than the original at the start.
