Apple created its new voice feature for—and with—people with ALS

The feature needs only 15 minutes of spoken phrases for training and does all processing locally. After creating a Personal Voice, users will be able to turn their typed text into digitized speech in their own voice. Apple worked closely with members of the ALS community to implement the feature in a way that met their needs from the practical to cultural aspects.

Apple is set to release a mixed reality headset, which although deviates from Tim Cook's initial vision, will still define the field.

Apple is set to release a mixed-reality headset called Reality, which will run on a new xrOS operating system and cost around $3,000. The device has been in development for seven years and has deviated from CEO Tim Cook's initial vision of a pair of unobtrusive eyeglasses that could be worn all day. Instead, the headset resembles a pair of ski goggles and requires a separate battery pack. The device is expected to be a major achievement for Cook and could be the foundation of a post-iPhone era for Apple. However, doubts remain about the device's potential success, given the lack of a real market for mixed-reality headsets.

Apple to occupy 90% of TSMC 3nm capacity in 2023

Apple is expected to use TSMC's new 3nm chip manufacturing process for its upcoming A17 Bionic chip in the iPhone 15 Pro and M3 chip in future Macs and iPads. This will provide a significant boost in performance and efficiency over the current 4nm chips. Apple has reportedly booked nearly 90% of TSMC's initial 3nm production capacity for this year, which will provide a growth driver for TSMC in the second half of 2023. The 3nm chips may feature up to 40 compute cores and provide the biggest leap in Apple silicon chips since 2020. However, Apple devices will eventually migrate to an enhanced 3nm process called N3E which is not expected to ramp up production until 2024.
