Apple is preparing to release its latest iPhone lineup – reportedly hosting a range of new features:

The world is awaiting the release of Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 13.

It’s expected that the new devices – dubbed D-16, D-17, D-63 and 64 will have three new camera and recording features allowing users to capture content like a pro.

The iPhone will also have a video portrait recording mode, the ability to capture in “ProRes” definition and a new filter system to enhance the colours of both photos and videos.

Apple is reportedly betting on these camera upgrades to lure consumers in with other feature upgrades expected to be fairly modest.

The phones will also have a faster A15 chip and an increased refresh rate which will allow for more seamless scrolling.

Apple shares increased by around 1% in the first hour of trading on Tuesday following this speculation.

The tech giant is also expected to release a new MacBook Pro, iPads, AirPods and Apple watches however it is unclear when these will be unveiled.

The contagion from the FTX crypto collapse has claimed another major scalp.

Cryptocurrency lender BlockFi has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

BlockFi claimed more than 100,000 creditors with liabilities up to $10 billion.

BlockFi was founded in 2017 and is now hoping bankruptcy protection will allow it to stabilize the company and restructure.

In a statement, the company says:

“With the collapse of FTX, the BlockFi management team and board of directors immediately took action to protect clients and the Company,”

“From inception, BlockFi has worked to positively shape the cryptocurrency industry and advance the sector.”

Days after FTX declared bankruptcy, BlockFi said it had significant exposure to FTX and its other corporate entities.

BlockFi is now the fourth crypto-focused company to seek bankruptcy protection this year, following FTX, Voyager Digital, and Celsius Network.

It’s Musk v Twitter in tech war

A war has broken out between Elon Musk in his battle against Apple.

Musk says: “Apple has threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why.”

This all comes in the wake of other organisations allegedly following Apple’s suit and cutting back their advertising spending since the $44 billion Musk takeover.

General Mills and Pfizer have been two companies that have gone down this path and diverted their spending elsewhere.

Right now users can still see ads in their Twitter feeds.
