Rumor has it that Apple could introduce the iPhone 14 family on September 7th and make the phones available in stores the following week.

Meanwhile in Linux phone land, there have been some exciting developments recently… but also some friction between one of the companies that helped spur development of Linux for phones in recent years and developers who are actually working on the software that makes those phones work.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. I wonder if the iPhone 14 will have USB-C. Or is Apple going to release an iPhone 15 before the EU’s deadline?

    There’s been some speculation that they could go 100% wireless charging. But given the fact that they don’t even want to provide USB bricks, something tells me they would face a lot of consumer objection.

    1. I’d love to see Apple release the iPhone 14 or iPhone 15 with the usual Lightning port in USA. But also a new Wireless Charging system that’s a lot faster.

      And for the European model, they should be the same. But the housing of the device, the metal bracket that goes around the phone. Well that should just be solid, and have no hole exposing the Lightning port.

      It would be the funniest ‘Middle Finger’ to the EU, and we’d get very interesting remarks.

      1. I too wish they would pull something like that, but because I don’t like apple and don’t want people to be ostracized for wanting to use something other than an iphone.
        Yes I do know about that google “get the message” campaign. I don’t agree with it. That just made the problem worse.
