✏ A look at this week's big news

Sources say Apple will launch generative AI features on iOS 18

According to MacRumors, Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Pu said that Apple plans to start using generative AI technology on iPhone and iPad as early as the end of 2024.

Jeff Pu said in a research note that his supply chain surveys indicate that Apple will deploy hundreds of artificial intelligence servers over the next two years to enable the application of this technology.

He believes that Apple will use a combination of cloud and device to use generative artificial intelligence technology.

He added that Apple's rollout of generative AI will still take some time as the company considers how it uses and processes personal data in line with its commitment to customer privacy.

If the plan comes to fruition, generative AI features are expected to be used for the first time in iOS 18 and iPadOS 18, but it is unclear how Apple will use this technology.

The Information previously reported that Apple plans to integrate large-scale language models into Siri to automatically perform complex tasks. This feature will involve deeper integration with the Shortcuts app.

According to reports, the feature is expected to be released in next year's iPhone software update, so it may become part of iOS 18.

He commented: In terms of the current mediocre terminal market, 1.6 million units of a mobile phone sold within six weeks of its release are already at the top level in the industry.

Musk: X will add two new premium subscription services

Musk said on Friday that Platform X will soon launch two new levels of premium subscription services:

Earlier this week, the company started charging new users in New Zealand and the Philippines $1 to access the platform as a test case.

New accounts are required to verify their phone number and then pay a $1 fee to create posts, reply, retweet, quote posts, and favorites. New users who have not paid can only read posts, watch videos, and follow accounts.

The company claims that the "Not A Bot" program is designed to reduce spam, platform manipulation and bot activity.

Tesla’s stock price plummeted, and Musk’s net worth evaporated by $16.1 billion overnight

Tesla's third-quarter financial report shows that its financial performance has declined to a certain extent compared with the same period last year.

Specifically, Tesla's revenue and profit indicators have declined due to pressure from falling vehicle sales prices and rising costs.

Total revenue fell 9% year-on-year to US$23.4 billion; gross profit was US$4.18 billion, a year-on-year decrease of 22%; GAAP net profit was US$1.85 billion, a year-on-year decrease of more than 40%.

According to Sina Finance, Tesla's stock price fell 9.3% on Thursday. CEO Musk said he would continue to focus on reducing costs and warned that Cybertruck faces huge challenges in mass production and achieving positive cash flow.

As Tesla's stock price fell, Musk's net worth evaporated by $16.1 billion overnight to $209.6 billion. The CEO owns 13% of Tesla, from which he makes most of his wealth.

Despite the recent deterioration in fundamentals, Musk's wealth has increased by more than US$70 billion so far this year due to the sharp rebound in Tesla's stock price in the first half of the year, and he still remains at the top of the world's richest list.

OPPO Find N3 released

At the OPPO Find N3 global conference, the OPPO Find N3 folding screen new phone was officially released, claiming to "open a new era of mobile imaging". The new phone is priced from 9,999 yuan.

In terms of appearance, OPPO Find N3 has tough body lines and a classic circular lens module design. The unfolded thickness of the body is only 5.8mm and the folded thickness is 11.7mm. It is available in three colors: Qianshan Green, Log Gold and Submariner Black.

In terms of hinges, it uses aviation-grade high-strength steel and integrated zirconium alloy liquid metal. In tests at the TÜV Rheinland laboratory in Germany, Find N3 led the folding phone to exceed one million folds for the first time.

In terms of performance, OPPO Find N3 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile processing platform, supplemented by LPDDR5X memory, UFS 4.0 flash memory, and supports dual-axis graphite heat dissipation.

In terms of imaging, Find N3’s ultra-light and shadow folding pixel triple cameras have the strongest imaging performance among folding screens.

Among them, the wide-angle uses folded pixel sensor technology, which achieves a leap in pixel photon capacity through a larger-capacity double-layer transistor structure.

This means that OPPO has achieved image quality comparable to one-inch on a 1/1.43-inch sensor.

The periscope telephoto lens has the same sensor size as the ultra-wide-angle lens, which is 1/2 inch. One difference is that the ultra-wide angle is 48 million pixels and the telephoto is 64 million pixels.

OPPO Find N3 also brings the "File Opening" function, which supports more than 40 file types. Professional files such as Keynote, Numbers, CAD, etc. can be opened directly to achieve a breakthrough in the file ecology.

In addition, the "Portable Workbench" allows you to access documents and other data on your mobile phone on your Mac through cloud services.

One Fun Thing | Study finds Mona Lisa is poisonous

According to smart technology fans, French scientists recently analyzed the "micro-samples" that fell off from Leonardo da Vinci's famous paintings "Mona Lisa" and "The Last Supper" and found that these two famous paintings are poisonous and the pigments used contain Lead and oxygen poisons that can damage the human nervous system.

Nowadays, painters know that adding lead monoxide to paint makes it dry faster, but this was not well known in Leonardo's time.
