July 11 update to AirPods story below, this edition of Apple Loop originally published July 10. Taking a look back at another week of news and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop includes new iPhone 12 features, the return of the old iPhone design, saying goodbye to the MacBook Air, a new display for the iPad Pro, updated technology for the AirPods, changing defaults on the HomePod, and new privacy lights for iOS 14. Apple Loop is here to remind you of a few of the very many discussions that have happened around Apple over the last seven days (and you can read my weekly digest of Android news here on Forbes). iPhone 12’s Super Slo-Mo Video Revealed Apple’s upcoming smartphone, like many designs, is leaning into the camera as a point of both differentiation for consumers and technical superiority over the competition. The latest beta of iOS 14 suggests that a super slo-mo options will be available when recording at 4K resolutions. Forbes’ Gordon Kelly reports: “[Pineleaks writes] “Both 4k 120 and 240 FPS will most likely be used for slow motion video. Don‘t expect 4k 240 to be available for normal video. 4k 120 remains possible.” These video modes would represent a seismic leap for smartphone video recording and a massive differential from the competition.

Apple should have responded much sooner to concerns about location data stored on its iPhones, even if the company didn’t have all the answers ready, marketing and crisis-management experts say.(AP Photo/Paul Sakuma) ASSOCIATED PRESS The New iPhone’s Old Design Feels Perfect One of the design points of the iPhone 12 family that has been heavily discussed is the return to the straight-edged and more box-like structure first seen in the iPhone 4. That design language, started in 2010, was retired with the iPhone 6. Now it’s back in fashion on the larger handsets. Boilerplate versions of the external design – to test fit and function – have leaked and, as Gordon Kelly reports, it’s a design that still works. “The new sizes are also a factor. After time with the models, [YouTuber] iupdate notes that the model he was least interested in, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12, ended up being his favorite because it was so compact and usable one-handed (note: it’s even smaller than the new iPhone SE). I suspect this will surprise a lot of buyers and I have already tipped it to become the top selling iPhone 12 model, especially considering its price. Conversely the enlarged 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max is a monster when the two models are positioned side-by-side.” More here on Forbes. Goodbye MacBook
