In other Apple news, there have been reports about the details of the upcoming iPhone SE 4. This fourth-generation iPhone SE is expected to feature significant changes in both design and hardware.

Furthermore, Apple has seeded the first beta of iOS 17.1 to developers. This update adds new features that were promised for iOS 17 and refines and improves existing features.
There have also been reports about overheating issues with the iPhone 15 Pro models. It is unclear how many devices are affected, but some customers have reported overheating, potentially caused by thermal compromises in the design.
Additionally, there have been reports that some USB-C power banks are not working properly with the iPhone 15 models, resulting in charging issues. Not all existing USB-C power banks are compatible with the iPhone 15, possibly due to differences in power delivery.
Finally, Apple has provided more information on how Game Mode works in macOS Sonoma. Game Mode prioritizes CPU and GPU performance for gaming purposes on Macs, optimizing the gaming experience by giving games the highest priority access to the CPU and GPU.
