✏ A look at this week's big news

iOS 17.2 beta 2 introduces new features: iPhone 15 Pro will support recording spatial videos

Yesterday, Apple released the upcoming iOS 17.2 and iPadOS 17.2 Beta 2 updates to developers.

iOS 17.2 Beta 2 adds a new feature that allows an iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Pro Max device to record spatial video and view it in Apple's upcoming Vision Pro headset.

Users can turn on the "Apple Vision Pro Spatial Video" switch in "Settings" – "Camera" – "Format" to activate this feature.

Apple says that for best results when recording spatial video, the iPhone should be held horizontally stable while shooting the video.

Video will be recorded at 1080p, 30 frames per second, and one minute of video will take up 130MB of storage space.

Microsoft briefly restricts employee access to ChatGPT, citing security concerns

According to CNBC, for a period of time on Thursday, Microsoft employees were not allowed to use OpenAI's product ChatGPT.

"Due to security and data concerns, many artificial intelligence software is no longer available to employees," Microsoft said in an update to its internal website. A screenshot shows that ChatGPT is inaccessible on their corporate device.

Microsoft said that while Microsoft did invest in OpenAI and ChatGPT has built-in protections to prevent improper use, the site is still a third-party external service.

However, the company initially said it would ban ChatGPT and design software Canva, but later removed a line from the announcement that included those products and later restored access to ChatGPT.

Microsoft said the temporary block on ChatGPT was an error that occurred while testing a large language model system.

iPhone SE 4 will be based on iPhone 14

Recently, MacRumors revealed more details about the iPhone SE 4. It is reported that iPhone SE 4 will have a more modern appearance and larger screen size, very similar to the basic iPhone 14.

The latest specifications indicate that iPhone SE 4 will use an improved version of the iPhone 14 body design, using the same full-screen design, 6013 T6 aluminum material and glass back panel, and support Face ID.

The iPhone SE 4 is expected to weigh 165 grams, which is about 6 grams lighter than the iPhone 14. This is mainly due to the fact that the iPhone SE 4 will be equipped with a 48-megapixel single rear camera.

In addition, reports claim that iPhone SE 4 will also feature action buttons and a USB-C port. Based on the current development progress, the iPhone SE 4 release date may be 2025.

Former Apple designer launches wearable device AI Pin

On Thursday, November 9th, Eastern Time, Humane, an AI startup founded by former Apple designers Imran Chaudhri and Bethany Bongiorno, released its first product “AI Pin”.

AI Pin is a wearable device priced at US$699. It consists of a body and an external battery, both of which are magnetically fixed to the user's clothing.

The 34g heavy body is equipped with a Snapdragon processor (the specific model is not specified), a 13-megapixel camera, a laser projector, a microphone and a speaker. The battery itself weighs approximately 20g.

AI Pin has built-in OpenAI's GPT series large models, and users can start a conversation with just one click. It can also display text and monochrome images on the user's hand through a laser projection system.

Humane has raised $230 million in funding over the past few years from investors including OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, Microsoft, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, LG, Volvo and Qualcomm's venture capital arm.

Humane said it will begin accepting orders for AI Pins on November 16.

Tencent will be the exclusive agent for Meta VR headsets in China

According to the Wall Street Journal, Meta has reached a preliminary agreement with Tencent to sell a new low-priced virtual reality (VR) headset in China.

People familiar with the matter said the agreement will make Tencent the exclusive seller of the Meta headset in mainland China and will start selling the device by the end of 2024.

Meta will take a larger share of revenue from device sales, and Tencent will take a larger share of revenue from content and services, such as software subscriptions and game sales.

According to reports, this headset will use cheaper lenses than the Quest 3, and its image processing device will be more advanced than the Quest 2 launched three years ago.

China Telecom: Satellite phone function plans to cover more mobile phone brands next year

According to the Shanghai Securities News, China Telecom stated at the Satellite Mobile Communications Industry Development Forum of the 2023 Digital Technology Ecology Conference that the satellite call function plans to be launched on flagship mobile phones of more brands in 2024.

China Telecom will cooperate with mobile phone manufacturers such as Huawei, Honor, Xiaomi, OPPO, VIVO, ZTE and Meizu, and strive to make satellite calling functions a standard feature of flagship phones.

For mobile phone direct connection to satellite, support domestic mainstream mobile phone terminal manufacturers to launch direct satellite flagship models, with no less than 5 terminal models on the market by the end of 2024.

China Telecom will support priority centralized procurement cooperation for direct-connected satellite flagship models. The centralized procurement volume exceeds 5 million units, and will be fully integrated into its own channels for 100% promotion.

Yesterday, OPPO officially announced that the next generation Find flagship product will support satellite communication functions.

PICO lays off its game studio team, and all members of the top three VR audio games by daily users have been laid off

According to Sina Technology, after ByteDance’s PICO announced layoffs, a series of sequelae of layoffs are quickly emerging.

It is reported that the entire team of PICO’s first-party game studio’s completely self-developed VR rhythm game “Sparkling Spiritual Realm” has been laid off.

The relevant community leaders have announced in the player operation group that "it is the last day to serve everyone" and collectively bid farewell to the players.

According to people familiar with the matter, "Shanyun Lingjing" is currently the third most popular product in terms of daily activity in the PICO community. Previous internal data showed that the applications ranking higher than this product in terms of daily activity are PICO OS system and PICO Video.

After the heated debate on AEB, He Xiaopeng posted a message thanking Yu Chengdong for his advice and generosity.

On November 9, He Xiaopeng, chairman of Xpeng Motors, posted on Weibo, "I discussed the technical route with Lao Yu this morning. I believe that the debate on this technology will eventually benefit users."

He Xiaopeng said that he would also expand AEB functions through OTA. He thanked Lao Yu for his advice and generosity. Sometimes it is easier to become good friends after misunderstandings. From now on, we will work together to lead technological innovation in smart driving and win a new era of smart electric vehicles."

According to previous reports, on November 1, He Xiaopeng talked about the AEB function in an interview with the media, "Friends talked about AEB, and I think 99% of it is fake. It is fake. Our people also asked about its AEB. You can't drive at all, there are too many accidental braking incidents on the road."

The above remarks quickly triggered a counterattack by Yu Chengdong. He posted in Moments that "some top leaders of car companies don't even understand what AEB is; they lack basic understanding of the industry's technological progress and future development."

He Xiaopeng responded to the above remarks by saying, "I recently commented on the chaos in an industry. It turned out that the industry was not anxious, but the non-industry was anxious. I don't know what he was anxious about." Later, he posted a long article on WeChat Moments explaining the meaning and standards of the AEB test.

Screen Actors Guild ends strike

The Screen Actors Guild reached an agreement with the producers and announced the end of the 118-day strike.

The Screen Actors Guild and Federation of Radio and Television Artists (SAG-AFTRA) said the two sides have reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year contract.

SAG-AFTRA revealed that the new three-year contract negotiated by the union is worth more than $1 billion. It has introduced unprecedented provisions in terms of AI threats and other aspects, which can help actor members achieve "sustainable careers."

In addition, the distribution of Hollywood films in mainland movie theaters in November and December is attached:

OpenAI’s first developer conference was held and a customized version of ChatGPT was launched

OpenAI held its first developer conference on Monday, local time, and officially announced a customized version of GPT. It will also launch a "GPT store" to share revenue with creators.

According to reports, anyone can easily create their own proprietary version of GPT without coding, and this feature will be available to ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise Edition subscribers.

The GPTs function was officially launched yesterday. Users only need to click "Explore" in the upper left corner of the page to explore the function options, and then "Create a GPT" to create a GPT to create your own GPTs.

OpenAI also plans to launch a GPT store later this month, where users can find other user-customized GPTs and earn money from their own GPTs.

At its first developer conference, OpenAI also said that it will launch the latest GPT-4 Turbo preview version, which is a more powerful and faster version of the large language model that supports the company's technology.

It is reported that GPT-4 Turbo can handle more text than GPT-4, and the knowledge base has been updated to April 2023.

Musk recruits volunteers: they must agree to remove a piece of skull and have a chip implanted in the brain

Musk's Neuralink company is looking for volunteers for its first clinical trial, which has generated strong interest from thousands of potential patients, Bloomberg reports.

Subjects reportedly agreed to have surgeons remove a piece of their skull so that a robot could insert a series of electrodes and ultra-thin wires into their brains.

When the robots finish their work, the missing portion of the skull will be covered with a computer chip the size of a quarter dollar, which is expected to remain there for years.

Its job is to read and analyze a subject's brain activity, then wirelessly transmit that information to a nearby laptop or tablet.

For the purposes of the trial, ideal candidates are quadriplegic adults under the age of 40. Such patients might have Neuralink's implant inserted into the hand knob area of ​​their premotor cortex, which controls the hand, wrist and forearm.

The goal is to show that the device can safely collect useful data from that part of a patient's brain, a key step in Neuralink's efforts to turn human thoughts into a series of commands that computers can understand.

In addition, Musk posted on X on Tuesday that Neuralink is developing a "vision chip" that will be ready in a few years.

"This is our next area of ​​research after helping people who have lost the connection between their bodies and their brains achieve mobile phone/computer telepathy. We are waiting for regulatory approval for our first human test subject."
