When will Iphone 13 be announced?

Before 2020, Apple has often announced its new iPhones on either the first or second Tuesday of September. If that happens again in 2021, we'd expect the iPhone 13 range to be revealed on September 7 or September 14 and release 10 days later. TechRadariPhone 13 release date, leaks, price and news

Apple TV's hit show "Ted Lasso" may have had its most high-profile cameo yet.

In the latest episode of the series, "The Signal," Apple's upcoming iPhone 13 may have made an appearance - without a front-screen notch. The standard multicolor wallpaper on Apple's operating system is seen. There's also as a view of the backside of the phone and the three-lens-camera setup in a separate shot.

Some Apple fans have long bemoaned the smartphone notch, which houses the front camera on the device, and critics say it takes up too much room on the screen.

The device could have merely been a prop in the show, engineered to appear as a notchless iPhone. Producers also could have used CGI in the scene, as Gizmodo said.

But others have speculated that it could be a preview of Apple's new smartphone model - which, CNET reported, the company could debut sometime in September.

Apple's next-generation smartphone was already expected to have a much smaller notch than its iPhone 12 predecessor, but if the company were to get rid of it completely, that would mark a major milestone in the company's history. The camera could be housed in some sort of sensor beneath the screen, as SlashGear said.

Apple's products, in general, have commonly cropped up in the show. Earlier in that same episode, Ted Lasso takes a call from what looks like an iPhone, identifiable by the three-lens-camera setup on the backside of the phone.

Apple did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Apple launches an iPhone 12 repair program for handsets with sound issues

TechRadar 29 August, 2021 - 09:30am

Apple will fix it for free

"Apple has determined that a very small percentage of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro devices may experience sound issues due to a component that might fail on the receiver module," Apple states in a support document.

According to Apple, affected devices were manufactured between October 2020 and April 2021. The fault has not been spotted in iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max models, so they're not included in this particular program.

It's the first repair program to be announced for the iPhone 12, though of course we've seen plenty of them before: for crackling in the AirPods Pro, for faulty screens on the iPad Air, for unresponsive displays on the iPhone 11, and more.

In order to qualify for the program, you must have bought your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro within the last two years – so if your handset is fine now but develops problems in the future, you can still get a free service from Apple as long as those two years aren't up.

When you're buying an item of hardware from Apple, you'll often find you're paying more than you might pay for something of the equivalent spec from another manufacturer – but service programs like the one just launched for the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro show how your purchasing decision should be about more than just how much you're paying.

If you were critical, you might say that these service programs reveal the shoddy workmanship and quality control at Apple's suppliers, but nevertheless it is reassuring that when a problem is identified, Apple is usually quick to swing into action.

And these service programs couldn't be any more straightforward to make use of: you can put your device in the post, take it into an Apple Store, or deal with one of the authorized service partners that Apple works with, all without paying any money.

Apple has certainly made missteps in the past – not least with the poorly thought through butterfly keyboard design that it previously used on its MacBooks, which wasn't acknowledged as faulty for a long time – but generally speaking, the occasional appearance of these service programs is going to give buyers more confidence.
