Data on the characteristics of a set-top box developed by Apple has appeared
An annual event is coming soon, where Apple regularly announces its new developments. However, shortly before this event, the portal The Verge reported that in addition to the updated iPhone and Apple Watch, Yabloko could present a new set-top box Apple TV.

The source of information predicts its basing on the capacities of the Apple A12 Bionic or A12X Bionic chipset. It is also expected to coincide with the launch of Apple TV + and Apple Arcade services.
As you can see, all data are only tentative. There is no specifics yet. It is possible that the device will be presented no earlier than October this year. A new generation of iPad should be released at this time.
Details of the technical data of the flagship Xiaomi product are revealed
An interesting teaser appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo the other day. It clearly describes the characteristics of the new charger, which will be equipped with the future flagship of the enterprise - Mi Mix 4.
This fast charger is a new generation product. The Chinese hint at its high performance. More details will be announced very soon.
The release of the company's new smartphone is scheduled for September 24. It is expected that the basis of its hardware filling will be the advanced eight-core Snapdragon 855 Plus processor with 12 GB of RAM and UFS 3.0 storage up to 1 TB. There is also information about the equipment of the device with the main camera with a sensor with a resolution of 108 (!) Mp.
The gadget will also have a ceramic back panel, a 4500 mAh battery, a curved display with a 2K resolution and the latest Xiaomi MIUI 11 software shell. Pricing for the Mi Mix 4 has not yet been announced.
New iPhones may be equipped with sub-screen fingerprint scanners
Bloomberg has announced that it has information regarding equipping the next generation iPhone with secure login. According to him, these devices will receive biometric fingerprint scanners integrated into the screen.
According to the agency, this technology will be introduced by the company next year. It is also predicted that all security resources - Touch ID and Face ID, will function faster. Unlocking the smartphone will become possible immediately after at least one of them identifies the user.
Before that, there were incidents in the work of Face ID. The system did not recognize iPhone owners who tried to unlock the device with hats, caps or, for example, a ski mask on their heads. Therefore, the introduction of new functionality will improve the complex operation of this entire system.
Where face ID does not work well, a fingerprint scanner will help. However, sometimes it happens that the fingerprint scanner does not work. This almost certainly happens if the person has wet or dirty hands.
In this case, everything should work the other way around - the input will be allowed by Face ID. Two authenticators of the same direction must complement and, if necessary, replace each other. The company hopes that the number of complaints about this will decrease.
In addition, after integrating the fingerprint scanner into the display, the manufacturer will be able to make the screen of the new gadget frameless, increasing the usability and making the design in line with all modern trends.
