New iPhone released by Apple accidentally reveals surprise upgrades


Leaks have previously disclosed Apple’s contentious iPhone 14 rollout strategy, and now Apple itself has mistakenly exposed its next big hardware update.

Mark Gurman of Bloomberg writes in his weekly Power On newsletter that code in Apple’s second iOS 15.5 beta release relates to the company’s next generation of Macs that have not yet been disclosed. And they will arrive much more quickly than you anticipate.

Gurman claims that the iOS 15.5 code contains spoilers because the update will discreetly add support for these next-generation Macs to all iPhones that are currently supported (6S and newer). Because iOS 15.5 is due next week, it shows that Apple is under no illusions about the urgency of the situation.

When and what are these new Macs? There is no better time than June 6 to mark your calendar for Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) (Worldwide Developers Conference). Apple is likely to roll out iOS 16, watchOS 9, and macOS 13, the latter of which is believed to be shown off on new MacBooks based on Apple’s much anticipated M2 processor.

New MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini versions based on the M2 processor are expected to be released in the near future, according to Gurman. It’s expected that the company will release a new 14-inch MacBook Pro, a 16-inch MacBook Pro, and a MacPro later this year with additional M2 chips.

It’s logical that Apple would want to upgrade iPhone support ahead of time, given the praise it received for the spectacular M1 chip and the worldwide excitement about the M2 — even if it meant leaking the release in its own software.

After all, it’s a risk that Apple has previously taken and is highly likely to do again, given the mounting pressure on the iPhone 14 line.
