After the recent launch of Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup, some users ran into a frustrating issue where they couldn’t use their Apple Watch to unlock their new phones while wearing a face mask. The company has now fixed this issue. According to The Verge, Apple had promised that a fix was on the way, and it appeared earlier this week in an iOS 15.1 beta, but now, the fix is live for everyone as part of the iOS 15.0.1 release.
The company’s official patch notes also said that the update included other bug fixes, but Apple didn’t specify what those might be. The update clocks in at 553.7MB on iPhone 12 Mini, as per The Verge. In April, Apple added the ability to use Apple Watch for unlocking a Face ID-equipped phone while wearing a mask and it’s proved to be a handy feature as masks are still recommended in many situations due to the pandemic.
With this new software update, it seems that iPhone 13 users who were affected by the bug stopping the feature from working will be able to take advantage of the convenient unlocks once more. (ANI)

Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Minecraft Edition Announced – CGMagazine
After 12 long years, the world’s best-selling video game, Minecraft is finally getting its own Secretlab chair, the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Minecraft Edition.
The Secretlab Minecraft gaming chair was created in partnership with Microsoft/Mojang Studios and the look was inspired by the game’s iconic enemy, Creeper. The chair is upholstered in the Secretlab SoftWeave Plus fabric, which was highly requested for the company’s special edition gaming chairs by fans.
The material in the special edition gaming chair is an advanced version of the original, highly popular SoftWeave material that has been upgraded to be more breathable and even more durable for owners of the chair. This basically means it keeps players cool and comfortable as they explore and create buildings/landscapes in games like Minecraft.
In addition, the Secretlab gaming chair’s structure featured interlaced yarn fibres that help visualizes the chair’s texture which is inspired by Minecraft’s intentional pixelated art style. Fans of the game will be able to see a black-and-green speckled fabric on the chair which mimics the grass block, one of the core building blocks of Minecraft, and the Creeper itself.
“I thought the Creeper’s backstory was extremely interesting—it’s hard to imagine that the most iconic mob in the game was created by mistake and was originally intended to be a pig,” Secretlab co-founder and CEO, Ian Ang said in a press release.
“The new knitting technique used in the Secretlab SoftWeave® Plus fabric opens up limitless design possibilities for us, and we couldn’t think of a better way to start than with the Creeper and what is probably the most influential game of the decade.”
Minecraft was released by Swedish video game developer, Mojang Studios more than 12 years ago and the studio was acquired by Microsoft in 2014 for $2.5 Billion USD. Since that time the franchise has spinoff into other games like Diablo-style game, Minecraft Dungeons and a Telltale adventure game.
Minecraft is the best-selling game of all time, which has sold more than 238 million copies. Currently, more than 140 million players play the game each month globally and in 2020, the best-selling game topped the charts as the most-watched content on YouTube with more than 200 billion views.
Apple Patent Offers Sketch of Possible Notch Implementation in New MacBook Pros – MacRumors
Following the last-minute rumor that Apple’s upcoming new MacBook Pro models could feature a notch at the top of the display, much of the online discussion has involved concerns that such a notch would encroach on the active screen area, potentially eating into the macOS menu bar.
However, it’s worth noting that Apple has explored ways of including a notch in a MacBook Pro display that would avoid ingression into the main screen area, make the notch appear seamless against a black strip, and potentially allow for additional information to be displayed to the user that would also free up menu bar space in the main 16:10 display.
For example, an Apple patent filed in 2019 with the U.S. patent office, titled “Electronic Device Display With Extended Active Area,” describes, among various embodiments, a laptop computer featuring a main rectangular screen and two “extended regions” between the screen and an inactive border, wherein “the first and second rectangular extended regions are on opposing sides of the camera.”
Specifically, the laptop’s “first and second rectangular extended regions display icons on a black background while the main rectangular region displays a rectangular picture.”
“The first and second extended regions may be located on opposing sides of a camera or other electrical component in a protruding portion or island-shaped portion of the inactive region. Icons or other information may be displayed on a black background in the extended regions, giving the display a continuous unbroken appearance.”
Such an implementation could potentially add system status information in a black strip above the macOS menu bar, but that would of course require a significant adjustment to the way the menu bar operates on these new Mac models in the final release of macOS Monterey, and there’s been no evidence of that so far.
The notch rumor, while seemingly sketchy on its own, has gained some traction since Friday, initially due to a discovery by MacRumors of screen resolutions that will feature in the redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models.
In the macOS Monterey beta, MacRumors uncovered potential display resolutions of 3024×1964 and 3456×2234 for the rumored 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. When subtracting 74 pixels from the height of both, the resulting 3024×1890 and 3456×2160 resolutions work out to an aspect ratio of 16:10. All of Apple’s current MacBooks feature a 16:10 aspect ratio, leading to speculation that the extra 74 pixels could be for a notch.
The possibility that Friday’s rumor may have substance to it has further been bolstered by an alleged photo of a MacBook Pro screen with a notch that was originally shared by a Weibo account.
Apple is hosting a virtual event on Monday at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, with rumors widely suggesting the event will be focused on redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with a faster version of the M1 chip, brighter mini-LED displays, MagSafe, and additional connectivity.
