Apple pauses development of iOS 18 and beyond to focus on fixing bugs for a week

According to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, Apple last week suspended the development of iOS 18, macOS 15, watchOS 11 and other software updates to fix a large number of bugs in earlier versions.

People familiar with the matter said company engineers are not tasked with adding new features but fixing defects and improving software performance.

According to reports, the latest round of development is not going well, so the director responsible for Apple's software development told the team to "pause all new feature development for a week to fix bugs."

It is reported that the move also affects future versions of visionOS, the software for Apple’s Vision Pro head-mounted display device, which will be launched early next year.

However, given that development work on the future system was only paused for a week, no launch delays are expected next year.

China Telecom: Huawei does not monopolize satellite communication functions and is planning to cooperate with more mobile phone manufacturers

According to Sina Technology, China Telecom insiders revealed that Huawei does not monopolize satellite communication technology, and China Telecom is planning to cooperate with more mobile phone manufacturers to promote the popularization of this technology.

In August this year, Huawei launched the "HUAWEI Mate60 Pro Pioneer Plan". It is worth noting that this mobile phone also supports satellite communication technology, which has attracted widespread attention. Subsequently, domestic mobile phone manufacturers including Xiaomi and vivo reported news related to satellite communications.

However, some bloggers broke the news that Huawei mobile phones currently still have exclusive satellite communication solutions, so the satellite communication functions of other mobile phone manufacturers have been cut off, and it will take time to launch.

China Telecom insiders said that Huawei does not have a monopoly on this technology, but there is indeed a certain technical threshold to implement satellite communications on mobile phones, which requires a large investment in research and development.

It needs to involve multiple levels such as chips, protocols, and terminals, and requires a lot of R&D investment to tackle technical problems, such as chip module miniaturization, satellite protocol system optimization, user terminal management, etc.

He said: "Currently only Huawei Mate60 Pro is supported, but we are also planning to cooperate with more mobile phone manufacturers so that everyone can use it."

In response, Jiang Hairong, China CMO of Honor Terminal Co., Ltd., posted on Weibo: "Satellite communication technology does have technical thresholds. Honor has invested heavily in research and development in this field and has made breakthroughs in many key technologies. You can look forward to the future. Honor mobile phones must lead the industry in terms of satellite communication experience."

The American "room temperature superconductivity" paper was retracted by Nature magazine

On November 7, local time, Nature magazine retracted a high-profile paper published in March this year, which claimed to have discovered a superconductor capable of operating at room temperature and relatively low pressure.

The retraction statement noted that the retraction was initiated by eight co-authors.

They said the published paper did not accurately reflect the provenance of the material studied, the experimental measurements performed and the data processing basis applied, issues that undermined the integrity of the published paper.

This is the third high-profile retraction of a paper by its two lead authors, physicists Ranga Dias of the University of Rochester in New York and Ashkan Salamat of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).

Musk recruits volunteers to remove a piece of skull to implant a chip

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

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."

Over 13Gbps, Huawei refreshes Wi-Fi 7 fastest speed record

Huawei China recently announced that it has completed the industry's first Wi-Fi 7 AP performance test at Tolly Labs in the United States for the global market.

The overall performance exceeds 13Gbps, and the peak performance of a single terminal exceeds 4.33Gbps, setting a new record for the fastest speed.

Wi-Fi 7 is the 7th generation Wi-Fi standard. Based on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz of Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 7 inherits the 6GHz spectrum in Wi-Fi 6E and has been fully upgraded technically.

Along with these innovative technologies, Wi-Fi 7 further improves space resource utilization and increases the theoretical rate of a single radio frequency to an astonishing 23Gbps, which is 2.4 times that of the current Wi-Fi 6, helping to upgrade the wireless network experience again.

According to a public report in 2021, Huawei ranked first in the world in terms of the number of standards it contributed during the formulation of the Wi-Fi 7 standard.

Byte starts the second round of option buyback this year: US$160 per share, up 3%

According to The Paper, yesterday, reporters learned from Byte insiders that ByteDance has launched the second round of employee option buybacks this year.

The price this time is US$160 per share before tax, an increase of 3% compared with US$155 per share in the previous round.

According to insiders, resigned employees can also participate in this repurchase, and the repurchase price per share is at a certain discount compared to current employees.

Since 2017, ByteDance has provided option buyback opportunities to employees every year to meet their cash needs. The company used to provide employees with two rounds of option buyback opportunities every year, once in the first half of the year and once in the second half of the year, with certain price adjustments each time.

He Xiaopeng writes about AEB again

On November 8, He Xiaopeng, chairman of Xpeng Motors, published a long article discussing AEB technology (automatic emergency braking system). He said:

I think that in this regard, Xiaopeng must first complete the optimization of intelligent assisted driving capabilities, and then based on data performance, stably and reliably bring some capabilities into the field of human-centered active driving safety, and the false trigger rate should be reduced to dozens. This level is one part per billion.

Secondly, I have always believed that in terms of active safety strategies for manned driving, we must remain in awe of the people-oriented technology and accumulation of experience, and be very cautious to avoid causing other safety or experience problems, or excessively reducing the driving boundaries of people driving by themselves, resulting in It seems safer, but in reality the losses outweigh the gains.

Xiaomi held a low-key closed-door meeting, and Xiaomi mobile phone and automobile industry chain companies all attended

According to China Business News, Xiaomi insiders revealed that a closed-door meeting on Xiaomi’s industry chain was held yesterday.

The participants came from Xiaomi mobile phone and automobile-related industry chain companies, but it was a closed-door meeting with targeted invitations. Mobile phones, computers, tablets and other electronic devices were not allowed to enter.

According to Blue Whale Finance, several BAIC Group buses showed up at Xiaomi Technology Park yesterday morning to participate in Xiaomi’s closed-door meeting.

The current car-making business is a key investment project of Xiaomi Group’s top executives. Previously, Xiaomi Group founder Lei Jun said, “Since announcing the car-making in 2021, one-half of my time has been spent on cars and a quarter of my time on mobile phones. , a quarter is spent on other things.”

 Zhou Hongyi: The development of large models has just begun and will not be dominated by OpenAI

According to Sina Technology, the 2023 World Internet Conference Wuzhen Summit opened yesterday. Zhou Hongyi, founder of 360 Group, accepted media interviews during the summit.

He said that the recent OpenAI conference launched GPT 4 Turbo, which has improved in many aspects, but it is not the final word as some people say. If it becomes a god in one battle, startups will have no chance. This is not the case.

"The world's AI is going to be unified. This is too pessimistic. The development of large models has just begun."

He believes that the big model is not the operating system, and it has not yet reached the iPhone moment. If OpenAI is Apple, then there is Android. Many companies are promoting open source of large models.

"There won't be just one large model. Lenovo is pushing AI PC, Xiaomi is also launching large models on mobile phones, and there will also be large models on smart cars. In the future, large models will be everywhere." He said.

The 12.9-inch Mini LED screen iPad Pro may be discontinued next year

The latest report from research firm TrendForce shows that Apple plans to stop producing the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with mini-LED backlight in 2024.

According to South Korea's Chosun Ilbo, LG and Samsung plan to start mass production of OLED display panels for the next generation iPad Pro models around February next year.

Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman predicts that new 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pros equipped with OLED screens, M3 chips and aluminum Magic Keyboards will be unveiled next year.

Mass production of OLED screens will reportedly not begin until February, so it seems unlikely that the next iPad Pro model will be launched in March, and more likely to be announced at WWDC in June or later.

OLED technology will eliminate the need for mini-LED backlights, and its advantages include higher brightness and contrast, as well as lower power consumption.

With the launch of the 13-inch iPad Pro with an OLED screen, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will not remain in the product lineup with a price cut.

In addition, in 2024, Apple is expected to update iPad Air, iPad mini and entry-level iPad, but these models are not expected to switch to OLED screens next year.
