More leaks suggest the next iPhone might have an always-on display

Published

on

Add another major voice to the chorus of those claiming the next iPhone could have an always-on display. As 9to5Mac notes, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman used his weekly “Power On” newsletter to say the 2021 iPhone will potentially have an “Apple Watch-like” always-on display with better battery life in addition to a 120Hz refresh rate, a smaller screen notch, an A15 chip and video recording upgrades.

Gurman didn’t outline the always-on screen functionality. However, a past leak from Max Weinbach suggested Apple would use an LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) panel that, like on the Apple Watch and a few Android phones, could drop to extremely low refresh rates to offer persistent information without a large hit to battery life. You might see some notifications, battery life and the clock without having to wake up your phone.

The writer also used his newsletter to narrow the time frame for a long-rumored MacBook Pro redesign. He now expects Apple to start mass production of the mini LED-equipped laptops in the third quarter of 2021 (aka this summer) with a launch between September and November. That’s still somewhat vague, but it does suggest you won’t have to wait until next year (or watch for a surprise early announcement).

The new MacBook Pros are rumored to have a ‘flat’ design like the new iMac (minus the colors) while using a more powerful take on Apple’s M1 chip that could support up to 64GB of RAM and more ports. Mini LEDs could deliver a screen that offers high contrast ratios and brightness while keeping battery life in check.

Nintendo’s next SNES Switch Online games include ‘Claymates’ and ‘Jelly Boy’

Published

on

Where, oh where, are the great SNES games for Nintendo’s Switch Online service? That’s what I’m wondering after seeing the company’s next batch of titles: Claymates, Jelly Boy and Bombuzal, which are scheduled to arrive on July 28th. No offense to Interplay’s Clay series (which includes the far more memorable Clayfighter), but these aren’t titles I’m exactly hankering to dive into. While Nintendo has done a solid job of bringing some of the biggest first-party titles over to Switch Online’s SNES library, we’re still waiting for classics like Mario RPG and EarthBound to arrive. 

There’s some value in letting younger generations see the sort of titles ’90s kids had to suffer through, though. And while Jelly Boy isn’t exactly a household name, this is the first time it’s going to be available outside of Europe, which at least makes it an interesting curio for retro gamers.

A single typo locked Chromebook users out of their laptops

Published

on

Google is apparently learning a hard lesson about the importance of accurate writing. Android Police reports that Google has pulled a briefly available Chrome OS update that broke logins for Chromebook users, apparently due to a simple typo. The company appears to have added a second “&” to a line of code, preventing the OS from decrypting login info and effectively locking updated users out of their systems.

The issue not only prevented some users from signing in, but started bootloops (where the system keeps restarting). At least one system required a recovery USB stick to return to a working state. While Chrome OS thrives on cloud syncing, some people still lost important files.

Google has pinpointed the problem and should deliver a fixed update today (July 21st). Still, it’s not clear how such a conspicuous flaw slipped through the testing process. If nothing else, it’s a reminder about the importance of backups — it only takes one buggy update to create chaos, whether you’re using a Chromebook or any other device.
