Apple gives extra features to Shortcuts users — what about everyone else?

Apple gives extra features to Shortcuts users — what about everyone else?

As Apple continues to develop the Shortcuts app experience across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and even Apple Watch, there are even more features and functionality that’s possible on Apple’s platforms, but only through the Shortcuts app.

As features like custom speaker groups become possible to create and break apart with Shortcuts, iOS often lacks a built-in, Apple-like way to activate the same functionality without using Shortcuts.

To put it another way, Apple is adding features to their OSes that otherwise don’t fit into the platform itself, but they can get away with adding by putting it into Shortcuts.

Apple’s latest processors will be exclusive to high-end iPhone models in the future, according to a new report from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The latest processor chip will be exclusive to iPhone high-end models in the future, so a high shipment proportion of iPhone high-end models will be the norm, favoring high-end camera component suppliers.

Kuo expects Apple’s new A16 processor to be exclusive to the two iPhone 14 Pro models, significantly boosting the shipment proportion of the new high-end iPhone models in 2H22 to 55-60% (vs. 40–50% in the past).
