Chip Shortage Has Affected ‘Everybody But Apple’ Says Analyst
...
Wave7 Research states that “sources have told Wave7 Research that Apple was able to lock down chipset supply well ahead of time" (via PCMag). However, this was not the case for other manufacturers like Samsung and OnePlus who are facing a rough patch. Wave7 compiles monthly reports on the US mobile phone market based on retailer surveys. The report coins that Samsung and OnePlus are affected greatly due to Qualcomm's supply being short of the demand.

Apple will finally let devs tell users about non-App Store purchase options
Proposed settlement would make it a bit easier to avoid Apple App Store commission.

Apple will let video and music apps—but not games—link to other payment options
Reader apps—books, music, video, etc.—will be allowed "in-app link to their website."

Apple has made another concession related to its restrictive App Store rules, saying that it will let several types of media apps link to their own websites, where users can purchase subscriptions without Apple getting its usual commission. Apple was forced to make the change to settle an investigation by the Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC). The change will take effect in early 2022, Apple said in an announcement yesterday.

Learn all about Apple's M1 with this 350-page deep dive
Everything you wanted to know about the Apple M1 (and then some)

Former Apple QuickTime developer Maynard Handley has published a preliminary analysis of Apple’s M1 system on a chip (SoC). Handley’s hope is that the research he has presented can be used to help others spend less time reinventing the wheel, and more time learning about Apple’s next-gen hardware when it finally arrives.

Apple CPU Gains Grind To A Halt And The Future Looks Dim As The Impact From The CPU Engineer Exodus To Nuvia And Rivos Starts To Bleed In
Dylan Patel
Sep 14

Apple has been long hailed for having the best CPU cores for consumer workloads for years. They have by far the highest performance per clock and efficiency driven by performance in the same class as AMD and Intel’s best current CPUs. This was driven by breakneck gains with architectural changes every year for a decade.

Now with the A15, these gains are really slowed. Apple in general was very clammy about the A15 comparison in the new iPhone reveal. Instead of comparing it to the previous generation like they usually do, they opted to compare to ambiguous “competitors.” That’s great, but we are only a few months away from new Qualcomm, Samsung, and MediaTek chipsets.

(...)

It appears Apple has not changed the CPU much this generation. SemiAnalysis believes that the next generation core was delayed out of 2021 into 2022 due to CPU engineer resource problems. In 2019, Nuvia was founded and later acquired by Qualcomm for $1.4B. Apple’s Chief CPU Architect, Gerard Williams, as well as over a 100 other Apple engineers left to join this firm. More recently, SemiAnalysis broke the news about Rivos Inc, a new high performance RISC V startup which includes many senior Apple engineers. The brain drain continues and impacts will be more apparent as time moves on. As Apple once drained resources out of Intel and others through the industry, the reverse seems to be happening now.

Tim Cook Worried About Apple Devices Used for ‘Endless Scrolling’ – Wants People to Use Them for Creativity

CEO Tim Cook appears to be gravely concerned for users who are using too much technology, according to the latest interview. The Apple executive also believes that the company’s devices should be used for creativity purposes, but instead, people are engaged in ‘endless scrolling.’

Apple is holding its next event on October 18th
To no one's surprise, the M1X would also be far more powerful than the M1 with 10 CPU cores (eight performance and two efficiency) and either 16 or 32 graphics cores.

Yeah, that's kinda their thing now, not ideal but it is what it is.

But still, on paper this looks like very impressive hardware with a level of software integration which will put these machines right up there for content creation. AMD and Nvidia deserve some heat also, they should be embarrassed that a 2nd gen 60W SoC can outperform their best mobile offerings (although lets wait for proper independent reviews etc).
