When is the Iphone 13 release date?

Apple is famously secretive when it comes to tech announcements but going by the latest rumours, Apple's iPhone 13 launch date will be September 2021. The next-gen iPhone is expected to bring a host of upgrades including a super-fast 5G modem, ultra-wide 48MP camera and Apple's first-ever 120Hz display.

As things are, the web swinging is polished. The sense of speed and physics truly add a sense of weight to every tug and pull of Spidey's webs attaching to nearby buildings as he zips through the sky. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales made further tweaks to the trick system, adding more personality to these moves, making just casually swinging along even more enjoyable. Even so, there are still a few other additions that Insomniac can consider adding to the web-swinging mechanics in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

As demonstrated in the many animated series as well as Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, the Symbiote suit enables Spider-Man to swing faster, jump farther, and endows him with more enhanced strength. Most notably, is is technically a sentient creature, trying to permanently bond to Peter and control his actions. This can be represented in gameplay by not only making players able to traverse the world more quickly, but also more aggressively. Landing on the ground from a high point could crunch the concrete below Spidey's feet, perhaps lifting vehicles that can be used as weapons.

Maybe the player experiences hallucinations because of the Symbiote, similar to the sanity effects in Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem. This could lead to once-familiar locations looking completely different, simulating the sense of losing touch with reality as Peter's struggles with the new suit. For an added touch, the citizens of New York can react different to Spider-Man, now cowering in fear rather than approaching for a selfie or high five.

Maybe snow, rain, and even accelerated wind speeds can affect web swinging in a future title. Spidey sways in the wind during a storm, something which the player could feel with the DualSense controller. Wet surfaces may cause the side of buildings to be slippery, encouraging more careful button pushes and timing while pulling off all of Spider-Man's parkour moves. Having more locations that can be entered and exited in real time would be a great addition as well, perhaps introducing photography side missions in which Peter Parker has to report to J. Jonah Jameson inside the Daily Bugle.

An added bonus will be the inclusion of Queens, Peter's stomping grounds, which was notably absent from the first two installments. While the buildings are smaller and would not allow for as wild web swinging, it is bursting with personality - just like Harlem was for Miles Morales in his spin-off title. It would also be interesting if plot points brought Spider-Man to entirely new locations outside of New York for a change of visual scenery, as well as moment-to-moment gameplay such as Dr. Doom's Latveria or Wakanda, the home base of Black Panther.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is rumored to be in development.

iOS 14.7.1 Changes and Features - Update Now!

iOS 15 Public Beta 4: Safari has changed yet again

PhoneArena 29 July, 2021 - 12:00am

Every year, Apple releases major updates for its iPhone and iPad operating systems in the fall. For months before that, it releases beta test versions for developers and the public. They’re often incomplete and buggy, but it can be exciting to try out everything before it gets pushed out to a billion devices in the fall. We highly recommend you do not run this beta on a critical device. Yes, you can downgrade back to iOS or iPadOS 14, but it’s not a fast and easy process, and you may lose some of the information that you haven’t backed up or saved in the cloud. We also recommend you backup your iPhone or iPad before you get started. If you want to know all about the new features coming to your iPhone and iPad this fall, check out our iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 guides.

Besides, beta testing is a good way to help find bugs and problems and results in a more stable release this fall. Just use the Feedback app to submit bug reports. If you’re interested in running the iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 beta, here’s how you get it.

Apple continues to fine-tune its Safari redesign, though the tab/URL bar is still on the bottom. You’ll now find a share button and reload button on the bar, and you can Show Bookmarks by long-pressing the URL bar.

iPadOS 15 now has the same Safari tweaks as macOS, with an option in Settings to place tabs on a separate bar.

MagSafe Battery Pack support is added in Beta 4, bringing it in line with iOS 14.7.

Shortcuts have a new action available to them: Return to Home Screen.

You can now choose whether to share your Focus status with someone in Messages on a person-by-person basis.

It couldn’t be easier to enter the public beta program. Simply head to and tap “Sign up.” You need to do this on the device upon which you wish to run the beta. You’ll be asked to sign in with your Apple ID, agree to terms of service, and then download a beta profile.

Once you download the beta profile, you need to activate it.

Open Settings, then tap General. Scroll down to Profile and select it. You can then tap on the iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 beta software profile and choose to activate it.

Note that the Developer Beta is available right away, but Apple says the Public Beta won’t begin until July.

Once you’ve registered, downloaded the profile, and activated it, you’re ready to download the beta.

Open Settings, then General, then Software Update. You should see that the iOS or iPadOS 15 public beta is available for download—if you don’t see it, make sure the profile is activated and installed. It can take a few minutes for the beta to show up after installing the profile, so don’t be in too big a hurry.

Once you have the profile installed, you will continue to get beta updates throughout the beta program. Every time a new public beta release is available, you will automatically receive it, or can go to Settings > Software Update to download it manually. There’s no need to re-download or activate the profile.

If you’re a registered developer (which costs $99/yr, go here to enroll), you can download beta releases a little earlier than the general public. Apple often makes a developer beta release available for iOS and iPadOS immediately during its WWDC conference in June, with the first Public Beta release following a few weeks later. Subsequent updates are much closer together: developers usually get the update just a day before the public release, if that.

That initial developer beta is often very sketchy, so we highly recommend you back up your device first, and don’t run it on your primary device!

Once you’ve registered your Apple ID as a developer, head to using the iPhone or iPad upon which you wish to run the beta. You’ll have to sign in, and then you can download and install the beta profile from that page.

Then, activate the profile by opening Settings, then General, then scrolling down to the bottom to tap on Profile. You may have to restart your device, but then the beta should show up in General > Software Updates for you to download and install.

If you want to stop receiving beta updates, that’s easy enough. Just remove the profile and you won’t get any more beta releases—you’ll just stay on the one you have. Once the final public release of iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 is made available in the fall, your device will download that, and you’ll be on the regular public non-beta release schedule.

Simply removing the profile will stop you from getting further beta releases, but it doesn’t get you back to iOS 14 or iPadOS 14. To do that, you need to put your iPhone or iPad in recovery mode, connect it to your Mac or PC, and then use Finder (or iTunes on PC) to download the current regular iOS version and restore your device. This will reset it to a fresh out-of-the-box state. We told you to back up anything important and not to run the beta on a critical device!

You can run iOS 15 on any iPhone that runs iOS 14, and iPadOS 15 runs on any iPad that is compatible with iPadOS 14.

Here’s the list of supported iPhones for iOS 15:
