Rumors about “iPhone 13”, Clubhouse, Apple Card fiasco on the AppleInsider podcast

This week, on the AppleInsider Podcast, we discuss the iPhone’s roadmap forecasts for 2023, the potential for MagSafe’s original return to a future Mac, and our privacy concerns with Clubhouse.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released predictions not only for the next iPhone, but also for the next two. He begins by claiming that the “iPhone 13” will come with a 120Hz ProMotion display, an improved ultra-wide camera and a potentially larger battery.

Then, in 2022, the “iPhone 14” could abandon the notch and, he says, “adopt the design of the perforated hole display.” Kuo also claims that Apple could launch foldable mobile devices in 2023, and in the same year the “iPhone 15” could include an under-screen fingerprint scanner.

Speaking of Apple’s future plans, a patent granted to the company on March 2 includes images of new MagSafe connectors. They could appear on future MacBooks and even on smaller devices such as the iPhone. Kuo and other speakers now claim that USB-C will not reach the iPhone and will either run out of charging port or use a new MagSafe connector.

Back in the day, some 21.5-inch iMac 4K models are “currently unavailable” from Apple – indicating a possible refresh soon. If there are new models, then they look like the rendered images created by Jon Prosser and will be powered by Apple Silicon.

Apple recently launched a new tool that allows users to directly copy their iCloud Photo Library to Google Photos. Unfortunately, not all types of media are transferable, such as Live Photos and Shared Albums. A new support page has also been launched on the Apple website, highlighting the “Apple for Kids” features and guides for setting up devices with Screen Time and Family Sharing.

Then, an Apple user on Twitter claimed that the lack of a payment with the Apple card led to the deactivation of his Apple, iCloud and App Store account. However, after further research, AppleInsider found that a number of events, including a breached trading agreement, were in fact to blame.

While its popularity is growing, privacy concerns about the Clubhouse live-club app have also grown. The platform states that records are temporarily saved if a user reports an incident that requires investigation. It is also said that your information cannot be deleted from the service, even if it has been shared by someone else.

The list goes on. Deleting the account is not available in the application either, and Clubhouse monitors the activity of users by tracking pixels and cookies.

Plus Peak Design asks Amazon to address its copied product, “Everyday Sling” and even produced a video about it, which it shared on social media. YouTuber Luke Miani successfully installs a M1 Mac mini motherboard inside a 2011 iMac, and Jason Sudeikis wins the first Golden Globe for Apple TV + with the best performance of an actor in a TV series – musical or comedy .
