iOS 14.3 Developer Beta Brings New Features Like ProRAW Format; Carries References of Apple Headphones, AirTags
It is important to note that ProRAW is limited to the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The format essentially combines Apple’s computational photography and multi-frame image processing along with the traditional benefits of the RAW format. This helps enhance image results and ease editing.Alongside ProRAW, the first iOS 14.3 beta brings the new Home app that lets you natively install software updates for third-party HomeKit accessories. This means that you won’t be required to go into the dedicated app of your HomeKit accessories to install their latest updates on your iPhone. The experience is as natural as installing updates for the HomePod through the Home app, 9to5Mac reports.The iOS 14.3 beta also includes Ecosia as a default search engine — alongside the existing options, namely Google, Yahoo, Bing, and DuckDuckGo. The new beta update also brings the ability to receive Cardio Fitness notifications through your Apple Watch. Apple had teased Low Cardio Fitness notifications for later this year. However, you just need iOS 14.3 on your iPhone and watchOS 7.2 on your Apple Watch to get the latest experience.- Advertisement – With iOS 14.3, Apple is also seen to have started suggesting third-party apps to users during the setup process of a new iPhone. 9to5Mac claims that the latest beta code contains clear evidence of the new change.Apple might not bring third-party app suggestions for all its users globally and implement the change for limited markets initially. The code reportedly says, “In compliance with regional legal requirements, continue to view available apps to download.” This may help the Cupertino company bargain better in the ongoing antitrust and anti-competitive lawsuits.The iOS 14.3 beta also includes an icon suggesting Apple’s over-ear headphones, 9to5Mac reports. The headphones icon was visible in a pairing video of the Find My app in the latest beta version, according to MacRumors contributing writer Steve Moser. Apple has released the first developer beta of iOS 14.3 that suggests a series of features coming to iPhone users. These include ProRAW photo format for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, a new Home app, and an option to consider Ecosia as a new default search option. The iOS 14.3 beta release also suggests Cardio Fitness notifications for Apple Watch users. Additionally, the new beta version includes references to Apple’s rumoured over-ear headphones as well as the much-anticipated AirTags.As reported by 9to5Mac, the first developer beta of iOS 14.3 brings the option to enable the ProRAW format. It can be accessed by going through Settings > Camera > Formats. Once enabled, a new RAW toggle will be visible on the upper-right corner of the Camera app. You will just need to tap that toggle to enable or disable the ProRAW format for your photos.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – – Advertisement – Apple had previously suggested its new headphones, which are rumoured as AirPods Studio, through two distinct icons available in an early build of iOS 14. Those icons were available in black and white colours, suggesting the hues of the company’s rumoured in-house headphones.If we look at the rumour mill, Apple was expected to unveil its over-ear headphones with a retro look and oval-shaped ear cups. The headphones were slated to debut later this year, though there isn’t any official announcement confirming its launch.Alongside the headphones, the iOS 14.3 beta also includes evidence of the existence of the AirTags. There is a hidden section in the Find My app with a codename “Hawkeye” that could be for AirTags as well as third-party tracking accessories including Tile, says 9to5Mac.The Find My app on the latest iOS beta reportedly shows a guide to users to let them set up tracking tags on their accessories such as bags, suitcases, and key chains and find them directly through the Find My network.As per the details available through the code of the Find My app, users could be able to track their AirTags and other tracking tags even when offline using Bluetooth connectivity. Some sound alerts could also be produced to find lost items that are connected with the tracking tags. Further, the code suggested that AirTags in particular could be connected to an Apple ID for enhanced security.Details about the launch of AirTags are yet to be revealed. Nevertheless, the references available within the iOS 14.3 beta suggest that it could just be a matter of time before they are launched.Apple has just seeded iOS 14.3 beta to developers for testing purposes. However, there is no word on when the new update would reach the general public.Are iPhone 12 mini, HomePod mini the Perfect Apple Devices for India?

Less than two weeks into team practices, Paul Flanagan knows defense is the foundation of his team.“I don’t think that on any particular night, or any night, we’re just going to go out and light it up offensively,” the head coach said. “So we know we need to be very sound defensively.”With five defensemen returning from last season, the Orange opens the 2012-13 season against New Hampshire at 4 p.m. Friday in Tennity Ice Pavilion. That core unit promises to be crucial in keeping SU in games this season. A solid defensive presence will extend beyond the blue line, making the attack more potent and the team more dangerous as a whole.Fine-tuning the defense takes more practice than offensive playmaking, Flanagan said. So the team has spent the past three days focusing on its defensive system while blending together its veteran leadership with young talented freshmen.“You’d like to think we’re not changing anything up really, just minor details, but hoping that the veterans haven’t forgot our systems over the summer,” Flanagan said, “And really just, again, just trying to get the freshmen to assimilate into the group and understand what we’re trying to do.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDepth in defense is a point of pride for the Orange. The team has only been together in official practices for the past two weeks. To accelerate not only the team’s fitness, but overall cohesiveness, the SU players have put in extra skill sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays in addition to extra lifting.In previous seasons, the team took about a month to become fully game-fit, senior defender Jacquie Greco said.Fitness and, consequently, team depth will be tested Friday. The rink at Whittemore Center Arena, where UNH plays its home games, is longer and wider than Olympic-sized rinks that dwarf most North American rinks. The Wildcats have grown accustomed to skating longer and harder shifts on their home ice, and often enjoy an advantage in endurance home and away.But Flanagan trusts both his veteran and younger defenders to keep up.“We have seven defensemen right now on our roster and all of them are capable. It’s not like we can only rely on three or four. We feel that all seven can play,” he said. “I think from top to bottom on the blue line we have, you know, some real good I guess parity from within the ranks, and some good competition.”That competition comes from the Orange’s younger players pushing its veterans. Yet one freshman is expected to play an even more crucial role.First-year defender Nicole Renault is smaller but makes up for her lack of size with her ability to read the game and lead a transition attack. An SU commit since her junior year of high school, Renault scored 12 goals and had 28 assists for the Little Caesars Under-19 last season.“I think I see the ice well and that’s what the coaches see in me, so they put me there to make a good pass and they see me as an offensive defenseman, which I am,” Renault said. “I will rush the puck and then make a pass.”Strong transition play from Renault and the rest of the Orange back line opens up the ice for the attack. For an offense that finished last season 21st out of 33 teams in the nation, averaging 2.23 goals per game, Renault’s passing ability is needed.This year’s freshman class is the best SU ice hockey has seen in four years, Greco said.Regardless of age, the defense is a strength and the bigger questions lie in the team’s offense, Flanagan said.If the Orange maintains the defensive standard Flanagan expects, the entire team will inevitably benefit.Said Greco: “It definitely helps the confidence of our front end, you know, because they can count on us to defend goals and then we can count on them to score goals for us.” Comments Published on October 4, 2012 at 12:14 am Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+
