The release notes for the iOS 17.1 beta mention a fix for an issue that could potentially cause screen burn-in on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Apple’s update notes state that this update addresses a problem related to display image persistence.
Shortly after the release of the iPhone 15 range, some users of the iPhone 15 Pro Max reported experiencing issues with screen burn-in. While the fix has been implemented, it is not clear if the issue also affects the iPhone 15 Pro or if it is a widespread problem.
Burn-in is often associated with old CRT screens but can also occur on OLED displays. Typically, burn-in happens after prolonged usage of displaying the same images on the screen repeatedly.
The exact measures taken by Apple to address this issue are unclear at this time. Nonetheless, it is believed to be related to the always-on display since most reports have shown images with the phone turned off.
In addition to addressing screen burn-in, Apple has released a second firmware update for its AirPods Pro 2 in order to improve their performance and stability following the release of iOS 17.
Meanwhile, an internal probe conducted by Apple in its China App Store resulted in the termination of at least five employees due to business misconduct involving unauthorized interactions with mobile game developers.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, mass production of AirTag 2 is expected to commence towards late 2024 and may feature integration with Apple Vision Pro.
