In top stories this week: More on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, rumors of the release date of the Apple Watch Series 7, Apple is correcting some frustrating bugs in iOS 15 and more. Read on for all of this week’s main stories and more.
iOS 15.0.1 release
Apple introduced iOS 15.0.1 to the public this week with a fix for an incredibly frustrating bug affecting the iPhone 13: Apple Watch Unlock. Previously, many iPhone 13 users were able to use the “Apple Watch Unlock” feature at all, but this week’s update fixes that bug.
Apple also says this update fixes an issue where the Settings app may incorrectly display a memory full memory and Fitness + error warning. Find out more in our full coverage.
iPad mini scroll
Following complaints from users and reviewers, Apple confirmed this week that the so-called “jelly shift” effect on the iPad mini 6’s screen is normal behavior. For those unfamiliar, “scrolling through the jelly” is when half of the screen refreshes noticeably slower than the other, resulting in a rocking effect when the content moves quickly.
Apple said in a statement this week that this is “normal behavior for LCD screens.”
Kuo for the future of the iPad and MacBook
Finally, trusted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo released a couple of new reports this week focusing on future updates to the MacBook and iPad. First, Kuo reiterated that Apple’s next-generation MacBook Air with M2 chip and new design is not expected until the third quarter of 2022.
Kuo also reported that Apple has given up on its plans for the OLED iPad Air, and will instead continue to use LCD technology in the iPad Air line.
