iPhone 11 clues hidden in iOS 13 another iPhone feature on the chopping block and the Mac Pro might have an official launch date.
Let's get right to the core of this week's Apple news and rumors
With WWDC behind us.
We're now uncovering hidden Treasures in its new software updates.
Now, we know the big ones in iOS 13 dark Mode app refresh has blah blah blah, but the devil is in the details and Apple has sprinkled in some clues of what we can expect in the next iPhone case in point the new recovery mode icon in the iOS 13 developers bait.
Now at first glance, no big deal, right but if you look closer, that is not a lightning connector.
That's a USB connector.
And here's what it looks like next to the existing lightning icon for comparison The tip published in Forbes was first discovered by Apple enthusiast Raphael Mouton, on Twitter.
Lat year's iPad pros made the leap to USBC so it wouldn't come as that big of a shock to do it on the iPhones.
Plus, we'd heard a lot of rumors that Apple could be doing it on the iPhone 11.
But it was definitely still hearsay.
Once Apple decides to include it on an iOS update though it's Game on.
Now there is a caveat though, as some Twitter users pointed out, which is that it may refer to the US bc end of a USB C to lightning cable going into the Mac.
Which, hey, at least would mean Apple might be planning to include this type of fast-charging cable in the box.
So here's where you chime in.
What do you guys think?
Do you think the iPhone 11 is making the switch from lightning to USB-C port Or do you think this is the UCBC tube lightning cable and which one would you rather?
Leave your answers on the comment section below or tweet me and we'll compare notes next week.
But either one of these changes Could come at a price.
The rumors about Apple getting rid of 3D touch in 2019 are gaining steam.
We first heard about it back in January with the Wall Street Journal report, and now, Barclay analysts cited in Mac rumors have all but confirmed it after a visit.
With Apple suppliers in Asia.
Apple first introduced this pressure sensitive feature in the iPhone success.
And it was supposed to help with navigation once the home button got removed in the iPhone 10.
But since then it has improved as an As necessary as maybe Apple had thought.
The best example of this is the iPhone XR.
Apple had to replace 3D Touch in this phone with something they call Haptic Touch which is basically their fancy way of saying a long-press with a slight vibration.
This To make room for that nearly edge to edge display.
So it doesn't work exactly like 3D touch because you can't do certain things like quick action app menus or peek and pop for previewing content.
But, it kind of does the same thing.
At least that's what I thought.
And I for one, didn't think I would miss 3D touch until I read your comments.
In my informal Twitter poll more than two thirds of you said that you do use this feature and that you'd probably miss it if it were gone.
I actually learned or discovered some new ways to use it by reading your answers.
Patrick Tailon said he uses it for quick replies and actions for apps that take advantage of it.
Most used for approvals for Okta and two factor authentication, which I'd actually forgotten I use as well.
Steve Boyer says he uses it to quickly connect to AirPods from the control center, 3D press on the audio control box.
This one I would miss.
I use it many times per day, he says And then on the other side of the spectrum you have Chris Lester who says, "I keep forgetting it's there and can't get into the habit of using it." And while I don't have a crystal ball and I don't know whether or not To lose it for certain, what I do know is that the functionality will remain at least to some degree.
Whether [UNKNOWN] or otherwise.
Because the iOS [UNKNOWN] has even more use cases for it.
Primarily on the control center as pointed out in mac rumors, you can now 3D touch or long press to switch Wi-Fi networks or bluetooth devices.
So why would Apple keep it in its new IOS beta.
If it's not going to have it On the next iPhone.
There is nothing I love more than when a company accidentally leak stuff whether it's in the software code or in their own website and apple may have done just that this week with the Mac Pro launch date.
When they announced it at [UNKNOWN] the company said it would be available this fall which still holds true but bear with me if you ask to be notified of its release on the Apple dot com website you have plenty of reminders that it's still coming this.
Same if you go to the actual product page for both the Mac Pro or the six K monitor.
But for a brief moment in time if you hit that notify me button from the product collage on that home page the sign read.
Coming in September we reached out to Apple for comment and they still haven't said anything about the.
Official release date and it has since been corrected on the home page but it may be too late because the slip was already documented in nine to five mac and mac rumors and by now as you can probably guess it's all over the internet, so you can bet that my money is on a september release date, maybe a long But very few two and three star ratings.
Now this doesn't mean that there are no two and three star opinions.
It's just that in the observed data, we generally tend to see a lot more positivity and negativity.
