Fortnite's Chapter 3 Battle Pass includes a moon-themed Ronin skin – Space.com

Published

 on


Fortnite’s new island appears to be part of a multiverse in Chapter 3, Season 1.

The new season of the battle royale game dropped Sunday (Dec. 5) at 10 a.m. EST (1500 GMT) with a plethora of new items. For space fans, the content includes a crescent moon-themed Ronin set and a loading screen showing the Fortnite island floating in a multiverse-like bubble.

Players like us who bought the season battle pass (950 V-bucks, roughly $7.99 USD) struggled to log into Fortnite in the first hours after release due to increased server loads, which makes it difficult to say what the island contains after it completely flipped over during an alien-themed event closing Chapter 2, Season 8 on Saturday (Dec. 4).

“We’re aware that log-ins, purchases, partying up, and matchmaking may be delayed. We’ll provide an update when this has returned to normal,” Fortnite’s game status account on Twitter said Saturday of the reported delays.

The finale event included an appearance from The Foundation (Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock) along with other members of the mysterious Seven, a group of beings trying to save reality by stabilizing the Zero Point that keeps the Fortnite omniverse going.

The unstability of the Zero Point has done a lot of things to the Fortnite island in recent months, including kicking back players to prehistoric times in Chapter 2, Season 6, and releasing a bunch of energy to the island in Chapter 2, Season 7 after an alien mothership destroyed a spire temporarily sealing up the singularity.

Media reports suggest the Seven (who have been struggling to keep the Zero Point under control for a while) will be a big feature on the new island. On the space side, there is reportedly a Seven rocket base landmark on the new map. Fortnite maker Epic Games says the Seven have sanctuaries throughout the island, but did not confirm yet the rocket base’s existence. 

New gameplay elements for the season, according to Epic, include weather effects like lightning and tornadoes along with guns, more guns for players. On the movement side, a new sliding functionality allows players to shoot and build even while they’re careening downhill.

Space fans who can wait a couple of weeks will see the first confirmed bit of space lore this season, which is the arrival of famous “Star Wars” bounty hunter Boba Fett. Boba who will drop onto the island Dec. 24 to advertise the new franchise spinoff on Disney Plus, “The Book of Boba Fett.”

We do expect Fortnite to deliver more space content soon given recent history. The game is known for dropping space references and other “Star Wars” content, including a Mandalorian-themed season in late 2020 and early 2021.

iPhone 13 doesn't support long-time 'Phone Noise Cancellation' feature – MobileSyrup

Published

 on


A growing number of iPhone 13 users have complained about the disappearance of the ‘Phone Noise Cancellation’ accessibility feature, which reduced ambient noise on phone calls when users help the receiver to their ear.

9to5Mac reported on the missing feature in December. Up till the iPhone 12, users could find and enable/disable the feature in Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual. On the iPhone 13, however, the feature wasn’t listed at all. Initially thought to be a bug, an Apple Support rep has now confirmed that the iPhone 13 models don’t support Phone Noise Cancellation:

“We have an update on this. Phone Noise Cancellation is not available on iPhone 13 models, which is why you do not see this option in Settings.”

The response came from a direct message thread between a 9to5Mac reader and Apple Support on Twitter. The reader told 9to5 that he’d worked with Apple and a senior advisor “for months,” eventually culminating with that message, confirmation that there’s no bug or software issue involved, and directions on how to file feedback about the feature.

It remains unclear why Apple decided to remove the feature. There’s a growing Reddit thread about the problem, but overall I haven’t seen a lot of discussion about it beyond that thread and the 9to5 article. Those who have issued complaints say that the removal of Phone Noise Cancellation has significantly reduced the quality of phone calls.

While I didn’t have an iPhone 13 to check, I do have an iPhone XS running iOS 15.2.1 and it still has Phone Noise Cancellation (as seen in the header photo). For iPhone 13 users, however, the only workaround so far seems to be using Control Center to activate ‘Voice Isolation’ when in a call.
