Cryptocurrency trader Coinbase says Apple bans it from updating its app; Epic puts apps on the App Store

Cryptocurrency trader Coinbase stated that Apple recently did not allow Coinbase to release app updates due to NFT issues.

According to Coinbase, Apple stated that unless Coinbase stops its NFT transfer function in the iOS wallet application, it will not allow it to release the latest version of the app.

Coinbase believes that this is because Apple hopes that all handling fees related to NFT transfers will be paid through the "in-app purchase system" of the Apple App Store, thereby obtaining a 30% commission.

However, at the same time, according to 9to5Mac reports, Epic, which had been in dispute with Apple because of the App Store revenue cut, relaunched a subsidiary application in the App Store today.

The app, called "RealityCapture", is a 3D model rendering software that allows users to scan objects through a camera and render a 3D model.

 Whether the car should be "disassembled" or "integrated" is a big question

Recently, many car-related technology news have mentioned the word "integration" in unison.

The purpose of "integration" is to integrate many scattered parts into a whole.

The earliest model to adopt integrated die-casting technology is Tesla's Model Y. Its rear frame was originally welded by more than 70 parts, but with the 6,000-ton Idra Giga Press die-casting machine, the rear frame can be directly integrated into one super-large part, and the manufacturing process and time are greatly shortened .

The latest battery pack system is also considering the use of CTP (Cell To PACK). It integrates the battery directly into the battery pack, thereby eliminating the need for an intermediate module architecture, simplifying the structure of the battery pack, and improving space utilization.

However, although integration has many advantages, it is like putting eggs in one basket, and the risks are higher. "Break the whole into parts" is another means to reduce risks and improve practicality after considering the actual needs.

For example, although a chip with a centralized architecture has a large computing power, it also has higher requirements for the manufacturing environment and security protection. At the same time, under the chip production crisis, it is difficult for small and medium-sized enterprises to grab the share of high-end chips. Many manufacturers hesitate to switch architectures because of this.

In addition, split driverless cars are also considered a promising model. The Mercedes-Benz Vision Urbanetic concept car has a separate "skateboard chassis" that can be equipped with two different body modules.

As a huge technological product, automobiles must make trade-offs in order to meet different needs. Integration and de-integration are like the yin and yang poles of Tai Chi and Bagua, and it is good to form a balance.

iFixit teardown reveals why iPad 10 doesn't support Apple Pencil 2

Apple's October iPad 10 has been criticized for not supporting the Apple Pencil 2.

According to the teardown video of the iPad 10 released by iFixit, since the iPad 10 puts the front camera in a horizontal position for the first time, the camera module just occupies the position of the magnet that the Apple Pencil 2 needs to absorb.

iFixit believes that this may explain why the iPad 10 does not support the Apple Pencil 2, but supports the first-generation Apple Pencil that requires an adapter.

In other respects, iFixit still criticized the repairability of the iPad 10, because the logic board and battery are glued together, making it difficult for ordinary users to separate the two without damage. Additionally, iFixit found that the iPad 10's USB-C port is soldered to the logic board.
