Apple submits iPhone 12 software update to French regulators to address radiation exposure

According to Reuters, a source familiar with the French Ministry of Digital Economy said that French regulators have received an iPhone 12 software update submitted by Apple and are reviewing it to address excessive radiation.

In the middle of this month, France's National Spectrum Authority (ANFR) said that tests found that the electromagnetic radiation value of Apple's iPhone 12 exceeded the allowed range, and it had asked Apple to stop selling the phone in France.

Apple had earlier disputed France's findings, saying the iPhone 12 had been certified by multiple international agencies and met global standards, but said on September 15 it would release a software update to adapt to the testing methods used in France.

Google will kill Gmail's basic HTML view in 2024

Google announced that it will cancel the basic HTML version of Gmail starting in 2024, and will automatically switch to the standard view thereafter.

"The Gmail basic HTML view was an early version of Gmail that was superseded by a successor more than a decade ago," Google wrote in an email to users.

The HTML version of Gmail lacks many features, such as chat, spell check, search filters, keyboard shortcuts, and rich text formatting.

But the HTML version can be useful when the user is in an area with poor network connectivity or just wants to check their email without any extra bells and whistles.

When standard view becomes the only display mode available in Gmail on the web, unsupported browsers may not load. It's unclear whether Google plans to add a low-connection mode.

CATL: The cooperation project with Ford is progressing normally

Ford Motor Co said on Monday it had suspended construction of a US$3.5 billion electric vehicle battery factory in Michigan in partnership with Chinese battery company CATL.

Ford said the suspension was due to "certain considerations." It's unclear whether any of those were affected by the UAW strike, and a final decision has yet to be made on whether the plant will ultimately proceed with construction.

According to The Paper, Ningde Times stated that "the company has paid attention to the relevant news and the cooperation project with Ford is currently progressing normally."

Ford announced plans to build a battery plant in Michigan in February this year. According to the cooperation agreement between Ford and CATL, CATL will license the technology for lithium iron phosphate batteries and send technical personnel to support it during the construction of the factory.

The factory will also be the first in the United States to produce lithium iron phosphate batteries.

 Harvard University research found that GPT-4 improved corporate employee performance by 40%

A study led by Harvard University found that using generative AI can help hundreds of consultants at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) complete a range of tasks more frequently, faster, and with higher quality.

Research shows that their performance improved by an average of 40% when using generative AI, with the consultants in the group who had the worst underlying performance seeing the largest performance gains.

Some consultants with more technical capabilities have adopted two emerging usage models, "Cyborg" and "Centaur", to combine AI with human work when using AI, which may point to the direction of future AI applications.

"Centaurs" draws a clear line between humans and AI. Employees choose to use AI or do it manually based on their personal perceived strengths and abilities.

The “Cyborgs” model, on the other hand, blends humans and machines in most tasks.

However, trust in AI’s capabilities may lead humans to become overly dependent on it, leading to worse outcomes.

The latest research also found that AI will produce homogeneity, and enterprises should consider deploying multiple AI models and even increasing human participation to offset this homogeneity.

Sources say iPhone 16 will have a new “shoot button”

The iPhone 15 Pro has just been launched, with a new action button replacing the traditional silent switch. Now there is new news that Apple plans to add an additional capacitive "Capture Button" to the iPhone 16 series.

According to MacRumors, if it has passed the initial testing stage, this button, codenamed "Project Nova", is likely to become one of the main selling points of the iPhone 16 series.

The capture button is on the same side as the power button, just slightly lower. It's unclear what specific functions the new button will have.

According to reports, the new capacitive shooting button is similar to the previous Home button. When the button detects pressure and touch, it will provide tactile feedback through the use of a haptic engine.

Apple Vision Pro headset shipments next year may be lower than expected

Tianfeng International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that according to the maximum production capacity estimates of some component suppliers, Apple's Vision Pro headset shipments in 2024 will be at most 400,000-600,000 units, which is lower than market expectations of more than 1 million units.

In addition, the market is generally expected to launch the low-cost Vision Pro headset in 2025, but Apple may have canceled this plan.

Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that unless Apple significantly reduces the price of Vision Pro, shipments of Vision Pro headsets may not achieve significant growth starting in 2025.

Vision Pro 2 will enter mass production in 1H27 at the latest, which indicates that there may not be hardware updates for Vision Pro in the next few years.

From a technical perspective, Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Vision Pro can definitely bring users the ultimate experience, but the question is why users need this product.

Vision Pro may take more time than the market expects to become the next star product of the iPhone.
