Apple Stock News: iPhone 14 Reportedly Spotted in Indian Regulatory Filings
Apple Stock News: According to MySmartPrice, the Bureau of Standards of India (BIS) has found a device believed to be an iPhone 14. The device’s model number, “A2882,” is believed to correspond to one of the standards “iPhone 14” models. The iPhone 13 models are A2482, A2631, A2634, A2635, and A2633.
New Apple devices found in regulatory databases usually indicate an imminent launch. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple plans to introduce the iPhone 14 line of products at an event on Wednesday, September 7. Bloomberg reported that Apple will begin manufacturing the iPhone 14 in India about two months after the first wave of devices ship out of China, as a manufacturing partner makes the first attempt to replicate the complex “iPhone” supply chain operation in another country.
Next-Generation MacBook Pro Models in the Fourth Quarter of 2022
The next generation of 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will enter mass production in the fourth quarter of 2022, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, given TSMC’s guidance that revenue from 3nm chip production won’t start until 2023, new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will likely still feature chips based on TSMC’s latest 5NM process.
However, this information appears to conflict with a report in Taiwan’s Commercial Daily that the M2 Pro chip could be Apple’s first 3nm chip. But It’s clear from the reports that TSMC plans to start making 3nm chips for Apple in the near future. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is working on M2-based MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro models. The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models were released in October 2021 and feature 5NM-based M1 Pro and M1 Max chip options.
Apple’s Self Service Repair Store Now Taking Orders for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro
According to Monday’s announcement, Apple is now taking orders for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models through its self-repair service store website. Owners of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models equipped with M1 series chips can now obtain repair manuals and authentic Apple parts and tools through stores. There are no manuals or parts available for MACs equipped with M2 chips or desktop MACs. For Macs, the program works the same way as for iPhones, requiring customers to review repair manuals for parts and tools before visiting a self-repair shop to order them.
Apple is offering a $49 rental kit for customers who don’t want to buy the kit for a single repair, giving them a week of free shipping on the kit. Customers can send replacement parts back to Apple for refurbishment and recycling, often earning credits for purchasing repairs in the process. The service is currently only available in the US, but Apple says it will expand to Europe later this year.
