iPhone傻季

敬上,在7月7日的推文中

I’ve heard that inductive charging will (a) be sold separately, and (b) might be late, waiting for iOS 11.1 (a la Portrait mode last year).https://twitter.com/ATP_Tipster1/status/883457889729425408

7月11日,马克沙利文报告一块快公司标题”来源:“恐慌”的苹果旗舰店作为下一个iPhone的软件问题依然存在":

June was a tense month for the engineers and designers on Apple’s iPhone team with “a sense of panic in the air,” a source with knowledge of the situation tells me.

The company has been working feverishly to fix software problems in its hotly anticipated 10th-anniversary iPhone that could ultimately cause production and delivery delays, the source says. If the software problems aren’t resolved quickly, the new flagship iPhone could even launch with major features disabled[...]

其中之一是无线充电The iPhone 8 — let’s call it that for now — will reportedly use a type of inductive charging, where the phone sits directly on a separate charging device(Our source believes Apple is using the Qi wireless charging standard, or a variant of it.) The wireless charging components, which are provided by chipmaker Broadcom Ltd., are not the key issue, the source said; it’s the software that’s not ready for prime time.

这种情况与我所听到的情况相符 - 归纳充电可能会错过九月的首次亮相,因为该软件尚未准备就绪我没有听说任何关于任何“恐慌”的事情对于iOS工程师来说,Summers是关键时刻,iOS 11.0的截止日期可能不会超过一个月但如果感应充电必须等到10月或11月的11.1,它会令人失望,但更不必等到iPhone 7 +竖屏模式出来的β去年秋天。

埃文斯,昨天写了《计算机世界》

这些天每年都是一样的It’s incredibly predictable.

It goes like this: Having reported every claimed product feature people then switch to criticizing all those features, and — when the shelf life on “anti-reports” of this kind time out, the self-same sources swiftly shift to shuffling speculation saying such-and-such features will apparently be “delayed”认真!

所有这些戏剧和苹果还没有宣布任何东西。

怎么可能没有宣布的东西被推迟?

“苹果工程师们恐慌”是一个令人兴奋的故事“苹果工程师们在危机模式完成iOS 11.0就像他们每年夏天”不是。

事情可能会比平时更糟糕,并且真的有一种恐慌,让iOS 11对新iPhone硬件的支持如期完成But everything I’ve heard suggests it’s the same as usual at this point in the summer: busy down to the wire, yes; frantic panic, no.

今天沙利文还有另一份报告,声称苹果正试图将激光传感器整合到高端新款iPhone的后部

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Fast Company Apple is working hard to add a rear-facing 3D laser system to the back of one of the new iPhones to be announced this fall[...]

The source said the VSCEL laser system is probably intended for the 10th anniversary iPhone (which may be called the iPhone 8 or the iPhone Pro or, hopefully, the iPhone X)Whether the sensor will be included in that phone, or a 2018 iPhone, depends on the progress the Apple engineers make in integrating the laser system into the phone, our source says.

这听起来很酷,而且听起来像的特征可以证明iPhone Pro的价格要高得多

但我认为,在7月中旬,苹果公司仍在努力做出类似的硬件决策Apple对这些东西非常隐秘,但是从我多年来收集的内容来看,在游戏中这个状态的硬件设计早就决定了他们的后期阶段验证测试,而不是设计。

格雷格Koenig两天前在Twitter上

对于一卷9月launch, production tooling is being ground right now这是铅笔了。

If not? Huge shit show.

与软件苹果(,)可以玩有点反复无常iOS 11.0将在8月底之前完成但是软件可以(并且总是)修补硬件不能那样工作许多与今年新款iPhone硬件相关的决定都是在两年前做出的(目前正在为2019年的新款iPhone做出决定。)

Is there a 3D laser sensor on the back of the new iPhone? Is there a Touch ID sensor?1我不知道但苹果公司知道,已经认识一段时间几个月,甚至。

如果今天的硬件仍处于播出状态,那么它将成为该软件的一个不可能的目标,更不用说苹果公司令人难以置信的大规模生产匝道我相信苹果公司已经领先于这些谣言 - 我们现在听到的这类报道只是已经做出的决定的回声。


  1. 不妨在这里解决这个谣言大量的读者关于报告深表怀疑,OLED的iPhone没有触摸传感器ID“这是不可能的,Apple Pay依赖Touch ID”是基本的情绪我认为OLED iPhone上可能没有Touch ID传感器,但如果是这样的话,那么新的3D面部扫描仪在各方面都必须与Touch ID一样好或更好。它必须同样快速,同样准确,同样值得信赖它还会从广泛的角度。正如Rene Ritchie写的那样, the end game is “persistent, ambient authentication” — fingerprints are not particularly magic.

    但是,如果新的iPhone没有Touch ID传感器there is no replacement authentication technology that is as good or better than Touch ID — that would be a dead canary in the coal mine. ↩︎
