Week 37 in review: iOS 16 is out, Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition official with 16GB of RAM


Another week down, so let’s recap. Apple dropped shiny OS updates to the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. For those devices that are ineligible for iOS 16, Apple also released iOS 15.7. And for iPad users, iPadOS 16 will arrive later on, it was delayed due to issues with the new Stage Manager multitasking feature.

Sony announced a special Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition with 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and Xperia Stream accessory bundled. The accessory plugs into the phone via USB-C and brings a full-sized HDMI port alongside a LAN port, a headphone jack, and a USB-C port on top.

It does not feature any additional buttons or joysticks so you are still doing the actual gaming on the phone’s display. Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition retails for JPY 175,000 which converts to $1,225. It’s already available on pre-order in Japan from Sony and Docomo.

Apple’s A16 chip was tested on AnTuTu and it recorded an impressive 28% improvement in its GPU score compared to the A15. Meanwhile, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 Plus shows weaker demand compared to even the iPhone mini series that was discontinued due to low sales.

Google teased the colors of its upcoming Pixel 7 through wacky potato chips in Japan – Snow Cheese is the white (Snow) one, Hazel Onion is the dark sage-slash-olive (Hazel) color, Salty Lemon is the yellow (Lemongrass) variant, and Obsidian Pepper is the black (Obsidian) one. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are coming on October 6.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 200MP sensor got detailed this week. It’s reportedly “100% confirmed” to have 0.6µm pixels on a 1/1.3” sensor with an f/1.7 aperture in front.

We saw the first renders of the OnePlus 11 Pro. It will have a circular camera module with three cameras, no details on those just yet, but we also do see an alert slider, which was notoriously missing from the OnePlus 10T.

Those were the key stories of the week but you can check out the full list below. See you next week!
