what will be its final name, what news will it bring and last-minute rumors on the occasion of WWDC23

A few hours before WWDC23 we have quite detailed rumors of most of the operating systems that we are going to see, but there is one that is still full of unknowns: macOS 14. Almost nothing is known about what we can see in the successor to macOS Ventura, and the speculations continue even now.

At the moment the bets are more towards his name, something that always tends to cause the occasional joke in the keynote by Craig Federighi. But beyond the common novelties, The features that will make macOS 14 stand out remain a mystery.

The list of possible macOS 14 names is not short

The mountains and lakes of Mammoth, California.

The list of names that Apple has registered as trademarks already has fifteen candidates: Diablo, Condor, Tiburon, Farallon, Miramar, Rincon, Pacific, Redwood, Shasta, Grizzly, Skyline, Redtail, Sonoma, Sequoia and Mammoth. Those last two seem to be the ones with the most ballots to be the name chosen by Apple, but you never know. And be careful, it could be another name that is not even on this list.

In fact, the history of macOS itself already gives us a clue: if Apple focuses on improving system performance, we could see a name located within the Ventura area. From Leopard to Snow Leopard, from Lion to Mountain Lion, from Yosemite to El Capitan, from Sierra to High Sierra, from Ventura to… Oxnard? Marine? We are still in time to open a map and see which neighborhoods in the Californian city of Ventura have curious names.

The day Steve Jobs buried macOS

What we probably won’t see again is this scene from WWDC 2002, 21 years ago, where Steve Jobs was holding a funeral for Mac OS 9 in the midst of Mac OS X’s rollout. It was funny, but it worked as a declaration of intent: For Apple, Mac OS 9 was dead and made it clear that developers should no longer pay attention to that version of the system. The future was Mac OS X.

Apple is going to change the world at WWDC23

This afternoon we left doubts. It may be that the news of macOS 14 are rather news in the services that are presented in the keynote, but I’m still very interested in what they can say. After all, macOS is a system I work with every day for many hours.

Apple explains why only USB-C AirPods Pro support lossless audio with Vision Pro

Apple is today marketing a revision of the AirPods Pro which has the particularity of having a USB-C port on the charging case. But that’s not the only change: the headphones also support lossless audio with the Apple Vision Pro headset.

Why can’t the second generation AirPods Pro with the Lightning Charging Case also support lossless audio with the Vision Pro? Brian Tong did an interview with two Apple executives to get the answer. Ron Huang, Apple’s vice president of sensors and connectivity, gives the answer.

Ron Huang says the H2 chip in AirPods Pro with the USB-C port supports the 5GHz wireless frequency band for ultra-low latency and less interference, while the H2 chip in AirPods Pro with the Lightning port is limited to the 2.4 GHz band. Apple says it’s this support for the 5GHz band that allows the updated AirPods Pro to support lossless audio with the Vision Pro.

The Apple Vision Pro headset will be available in early 2024, first in the United States. The price will be $3,499. Apple has already planned marketing in other countries, but this will happen later at a price that is currently unknown in euros.

The docuseries The Supermodels is available in its entirety (i.e. 4 episodes) on the subscription platform Apple TV+. As the title indicates, this documentary directed by Barbara Kopple focuses on the rise of what we called in the 80s and 90s the “supermodels”, that is to say star models to whom nothing seemed resist, women often adored as film actresses.

And of course, US production obliges, a documentary on famous women could not miss the mark of “empowerment”: “As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself, this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to reclaim it, paving the way for those who would follow.” » An entire program…

It would (already) be a hit for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and a small disappointment for the iPhone 15 Pro

After just a few days of pre-orders, the lively Ming Chi Kuo can already give the main trends in iPhone sales for the current and coming quarter. For the analyst, there are no doubts: the new iPhone 15/15 Pro range is a huge success, and Apple should distribute 80 million copies until the end of the year compared to 76 million for the iPhone 14/14 Pro range. Surprisingly, the 15 Pro Max model is popular with buyers, and Kuo estimates that Apple will sell 35 million of this model (Q3 and Q4), or 7 million more 15 Pro Max compared to sales of the 14 Pro. Max over the same period.

iPhone 15 Pro Official Color Front Back

On the other hand, sales would be a little below expectations for the two most “standard” models, namely the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro. Kuo does not give figures, but specifies that without a drop in prices (via occasional promotions for example), the volume of these sales should not change much in a few months. The surprise is undoubtedly on the side of the iPhone 15 Plus, which would sell beyond the stock capacities initially planned by Apple. The factories will have to operate more vigorously…
