🔥 Apple admits iPhone 15 overheating issueLINK
Apple has acknowledged an overheating issue with iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, that can be caused by certain conditions like increased background activity post-setup, a bug in iOS 17, and some third-party apps like Instagram, Uber, and Asphalt 9.
The overheating problem is software-related, not a hardware issue, and Apple says it will be addressed in a software update, primarily through iOS 17.1, which is currently in its beta stage.
Despite the overheating, Apple reassures that this does not pose a safety risk nor will it affect the phone's performance in the long term, and the company is also working with third-party app developers for further resolution.
X CEO's disastrous interviewLINK
X, previously known as Twitter, has lost millions of daily active users since its acquisition by Elon Musk, with CEO Linda Yaccarino revealing current daily active users to be between 225 to 245 million, as opposed to the 259.4 million users it had before the ownership change.
Despite endorsing X as the go-to platform for real-time discussion, Yaccarino was caught without the X app on her smartphone's home screen during the interview, which sparked criticism and went viral.
Yaccarino defended Musk's actions and her role at X, even though she seemed unaware of Musk’s plans, such as instituting a paywall for X, and despite seeming overruled in areas typically run by a CEO, like the product department.
🎨 OpenAI releases upgraded DALL-E 3 for BingLINK
DALL-E 3, an anticipated upgrade to OpenAI's popular AI image generator, appears to have been secretly released to the public via Microsoft's Bing Image Creator tool.
The superior capabilities of DALL-E 3 were discovered by digital art creators, even though it is not officially available on the OpenAI website yet.
While the new version doesn't disclose itself on Bing Image Creator, its distinct features including rendering readable text and depicting historical figures indicate its quiet launch.
🔍 EU investigates potential abuses in Nvidia-led AI chip marketLINK
The European Union is investigating Nvidia for possible anti-competitive behavior in the AI chip market, a sector which Nvidia dominates.
The European Commission is gathering information on potential abuse in the graphics processing units (GPU) sector, with Nvidia holding an 80% market share.
The investigation is in its early stage and may not lead to a formal probe or penalties, however French authorities have started interviews into Nvidia's central role in AI chips and its pricing policy.
