    iFixit’s iPhone 11 Pro Max teardown finds higher-capacity battery, 4GB of RAM / ArsTechnica – Yesterday - 17:56

As has become an annual custom, iFixit tore down the latest iPhone—in this case the iPhone 11 Pro Max —to see what has changed inside Apple's flagship device. The site found that the phone has 4GB of RAM, a 3969 mAh battery that adopts the L-shaped design for the first time in a Max phone, and an improved thermal management system.

Also intriguing: "We have a secondary battery connector for the first time ever in an iPhone, plugging in directly adjacent to the wireless charging coil. We're not sure what Apple was up to here."

This additional connector, iFixit postulates, could be evidence of the bilateral charging feature that was rumored before the phone's release. Pre-launch reports claimed that the new iPhone would be able to charge AirPods wirelessly, much like Samsung's recent Galaxy phones . However, iFixit notes that Apple published documentation indicating that the iPhone 11 Pro Max has new hardware for tracking battery performance, and that may be an alternative explanation.

    iOS 13 ships with known lockscreen bypass flaw that exposes contacts / ArsTechnica – 2 days ago - 18:41

iOS 13 ships with known lockscreen bypass flaw that exposes contacts

Apple released iOS 13 with a bunch of new features . But it also released the new OS with something else: a bug disclosed seven days ago that exposes contact details without requiring a passcode or biometric identification first.

Independent researcher Jose Rodriguez published a video demonstration of the flaw exactly one week ago. It can be exploited by receiving a FaceTime call and then using the voiceover feature from Siri to access the contact list. From there, an unauthorized person could get names, phone numbers, email addresses, and any other information stored in the phone’s contacts list.

With No Enter the Passcode you can See Contacts info. iOS 13 Feature. Read description please.

Rodriquez’s video was the topic of more than 100 news articles over the past week. Since iOS 13 was in beta when it first appeared, I assumed Apple developers would fix the bypass in time for yesterday's release. Alas, they didn’t, and it’s not clear why. Apple representatives have yet to respond to a request for comment.

Today, Apple shipped units of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max handsets to customers who ordered online, and the phones went on sale in stores around the world. Apple also launched a new Apple Watch, the series 5, today.

Ship times for online orders are already getting long, though. Consumers might have trouble finding the phones in stores today if they hadn't already pre-ordered or stood in line at stores this morning. The US Apple Store website indicates that most configurations of the iPhone 11 Pro will deliver between October 11 and 18 if ordered today. The iPhone 11 looks like it will have a little bit more availability; estimates for delivery are around October 2.

Apple also reopened its Fifth Avenue Apple Store in New York City to considerable fanfare today, with executives in attendance for the product launches.

    iOS 13: The Ars Technica review / ArsTechnica – 2 days ago - 15:30

Last year, Apple set users’ expectations with iOS 12, saying it would be focused on improving performance and fixing bugs and stability issues instead of adding a bunch of new features. And while there were still plenty of bugs over the course of the iOS 12 cycle, performance was improved— particularly on older devices .

Apple hasn’t tempered expectations for iOS 13 this year, so users might be expecting a big leap forward. iOS 13 does bring a new look to the software that runs on iPhones, overhauls a few oft-criticized first-party applications, and puts additional emphasis on user privacy. Most of all, it adds new, powerful interactions for power users—some of which we thought we'd never see in Apple's mobile software.

iOS 13 is successful at most of what it sets out to do, even though it leaves some things that users have wanted to see overhauled—like the home screen—relatively untouched.

    Beats headphones will get iOS 13 audio sharing next week / TechCrunch – 2 days ago - 15:23

Audio sharing is among the more delightful features arriving as part of Apple’s iOS 13 update . With it, users will be able to share songs across nearby device — a sort of 2019 version of buying a headphone splitter or handing someone your earbud.

Beats pinged TechCrunch this morning to let us know that the new addition will be arriving on a number of its new headphones, in addition to AirPods. No surprise, really, given that the company was swallowed up by Apple some years ago, but a nice little bonus for those who H1 and W1-powered models, including Powerbeats Pro (my headphone of choice, of late), Studio3 Wireless, BeatsX, Powerbeats3 Wireless and Solo3 Wireless.

The feature works in one of two ways. Users can either put two iOS devices in close proximity and play music one one from a number of different sources. From there, a Share Audio dialogue box pops up, similar to the one you’ll see during the initial pairing process. Tapping Share Audio will do just that.

The other method involves pairing two pairs of headphones to a single device. It’s the better of the two options if you don’t have access to two devices, but even with Apple’s tech, it can still be a bit of a pain switching between products. Either way, it’s a fun option for sharing playlists on a long commute.

The feature arrives on September 23.
