Apple prepares for WWDC 23 with a big change in iOS 17, Samsung updates the Galaxy S23, Microsoft wants an almighty operating system again and industry executives are worried about artificial intelligence. This is the week that was.
Mark Gorman, probably the top leaker when it comes to behind-the-scenes updates on what’s going on at Apple, is dropping some intriguing hints about the company’s plans for iOS 17, which is expected to be released later this year. According to Gorman, Apple initially thought that iOS 17 would be a minor update focused on performance improvements and bug fixes, while most of the company’s effort is focused on the mixed reality glasses project.
In light of the relative disappointment registered with the photographic capabilities of the Galaxy S23 series devices, Samsung has promised a significant improvement in a software update that will arrive towards the end of this month. And here, just before the deadline, the manufacturer offers for download an update that should indeed bring with it an upgrade to the photography capabilities of all three devices of the series.
Apple has announced an official date for its annual developer event, WWDC 2023. It will take place between June 5 and 9, and again this year it will allow developers to attend the event online and for the most part at no extra charge.
Will Microsoft (Microsoft) try again to fulfill the dream of the modular operating system? According to the report, the company is working on a system that can adapt to almost any hardware configuration and any device, with Windows 12 expected to be released in 2024. Microsoft tried this strategy several times in the past, when only in 2021 did the last attempt so far come to an end – Windows 10X which was supposed to be a version “Kela” of the operating system intended for relatively cheap laptops, and was eventually cancelled.
The entrepreneur Elon Musk, along with a number of senior executives and researchers including Steve Wozniak (who founded Apple alongside Steve Jobs) and the Israeli professor Yuval Noah Harari, signed a petition that was delivered to the leading companies in the field of artificial intelligence calling on them to immediately stop what they define as “a race out of control ” for the development of machine learning systems that “no one, including their creators, understands or is able to control”.
It’s no secret that Apple’s mixed reality glasses have been in development for a long time, perhaps even before the current trend. However, after various postponements, it seems that the company is interested in presenting them to the general public already this year and even held a closed demonstration. According to Bloomberg, the demonstration was in front of senior executives and decision makers of the company, only this time it was a more impressive display of purpose and was held at the Steve Jobs Conference Center at the headquarters in Cupertino.
