The iPhone 12 is a device that feels both familiar and new rolled into one. Its flat sides are reminiscent of the iPhone 4, yet it has been a 6.1-inch display capable of showing Dolby Vision content.
Apple also introduced 5G with this iPhone, so game and work on the go without worrying about crippling data speeds.
The iPhone 12 has been several new features and updates to push the device even further a new design, new color, better cameras, and a better processor. Apple positioned the latest lineup as iPhone for everyone, with the most varied choice between screen size & color in its history.
Storage & Connectivity :-
For connectivity, the device has 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11, a/ac/ax/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS, Glonass, NFC, USB Type-C.

Apple Watch is one of the most popular smartwatches out there of the company have been to adding several health-related features to the device. Some of them haa been proved to be life-saving for many, especially the electrocardiogram (ECG).
Now, it’s being reported that the upcoming version of the device, Apple Watch Series 7 is likely to get another major health-related feature — Blood sugar monitoring. This will be a very important for users who are diabetics. As per the report from The Telegraph, an SEC filing hints that Apple will add a glucometer feature to the Apple Watch in 2022.
The feature will be come in handy for users who need to get a reading on their blood sugar before each insulin injection since the amount of sugar found in their blood determines the dosage of each shot. Currently, checking the blood sugar level is a bit complex. The user have been the to draw blood for each test, dab it onto a test strip which is then inserted into a glucometer.
The current process is a bit painful and costly but if Apple could come up with a solution that can offer blood sugar readings without the need to draw blood or buy new test trips, it will be could prove to be a major boost to the device’s sales.
The report reveals Apple as the largest customer of Rockley Photonics which have been a developed next-generation sensors that are expected to be inside devices by next year. It is sensors can read certain signals from a person’s blood by shining infrared light through the skin from the back of a smartwatch.
This also hints that besides glucometer, the company could be looking to add other sensors on the upcoming smartwatch to measure the user’s alcohol level of the blood pressure but as of now, nothing have been the confirmed by the US-based tech giant.
So far, Apple is offering electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood oxygen level (SpO2) monitoring on it is smartwatche. So, it will be great to see support for glucometer on the wearable device in the next edition.
Back in February this year, we Shaw a patent filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) titled “Terahertz Spectroscopy and Imaging In Dynamic Environments With Performance Enhancements using Ambient Sensors”. Thus patent application indicated that are the Apple might be working on blood sugar readings and as a result, could bring the glucose level monitoring on Apple Watches in the future. they patent have got some credibility as UK health tech firm Rockley Photonics recently confirmed that Apple have been it is largest customer for the past two years. The firm focus had been mainly on tracking blood glucose levels.
Apple Watch Series 6
As reported by the Telegraph and Forbes, Rockley Photonics confirmed Apple as it is biggest customer in a recent SEC filing. This means that the iPhone maker is doing more than just filing patents for this tech and could actually bring this to it is iDevices, which most likely will be the Apple Watch. The Cupertino tech giant already have been a heart-rate monitor and SpO2 monitor in it is watches.
Besides tracking blood glucose levels, Rockley’s focus is also on tracking blood pressure, and even alcohol levels. Thus also adds to the speculation that are these two features could also come to Apple Watch devices in future. Nothing can be said for sure right now though.
Nonetheless, measuring blood pressure could also lead to tracking of stress and monitor alcohol intake. However, the feasibility and keeping the price in check will also be big factors for the firm. And considering that Apple last year bifurcated its Watch family largely in two series – Watch 6 and Watch SE, we could see a premium one with all these features soon as and with basic ones as a part of the SE lineup

hacking group has stolen confidential data depicting upcoming Apple products through one of the Apple’s vendors.
The group now demands a ransom of $50 million for a stolen data.
It threatens to release the schematics of a upcoming Apple products every day until the ransom is paid.
Russian hacking group is extorting Apple for a reported sum of $50 million, after the obtaining schematics of several of its future products. A group posted proof of the data leak on the dark web hours before Apple’s Spring loaded event earlier this week.
Named Revil, the hacking group gained the confidential data through a cyber-attack on one of the manufacturers of MacBooks or other Apple products. The target was a Taiwan-based company called Quanta, which has also confirmed the data leak in a report by Bloomberg.
The threat actors first tried to extort Quanta for the lost data. When Quanta refused the pay to get the stolen data back, a hackers decided to go after its biggest client Apple. A group revealed the intent in a message posted on the dark web portal, as spotted by The Record in a report.
It was then that Revil began posting the stolen images of Apple products. A group posted 21 screenshots depicting schematics of the newly released iMac which had not been made public prior to the launch. A post this came as a testament to the legitimacy of the stolen data.
Other than the iMac, the images posted to date also include manufacturing diagrams for M1 MacBook Air launched last year as well as an unreleased laptop by Apple. A screenshots also display warnings on the pages: “This is the property of Apple & it must be returned,” meaning the schematics indeed belong to Apple.
The hacking group have threatened to publish new data every day a until they are paid the $50 million ransom by either Apple or Quanta. They group is attempting to get the ransom by May 1.
Other than Apple, Quanta Computer havs a long clientele thay includes some of a biggest name in the laptop industry. These include the likes of HP, Dell, Microsoft, Toshiba, LG, Lenovo, & others.
In its post on the dark web, Revil have hinted at having possession of data from other companies as well. “Our team is negotiating the sale of large quantities of confidential drawings or gigabytes of personal data with several major brands,” the REvil operators wrote.
The exact extent of the cyber-attack and the subsequent data leak is yet unknown.
