Powerbeats 4 earphones hinted at by image discovered in iOS 13.3.1

Early on Tuesday, Apple released iOS 13.3.1 to the public. While the software wasn’t loaded with new features, it did include a hint at a new set of earphones.

Powerbeats 4, to be specific. This is not the first time we’re seeing the earphones, either. They were first discovered in the iOS 13.3 beta in December of last year. And now, as reported by MacRumors, the unannounced update to Powerbeats 3 wireless earphones has appeared yet again in new artwork discovered in the latest public release of iOS 13.3.1.

The design looks to be a combination of the current Powerbeats 3 wireless earphones and the Powerbeats Pro that launched in 2019, with a more curved design similar to the latter option. These won’t be truly wireless headphones, though, keeping in line with the Powerbeats 3 insofar that it will have a wire that connects the earbuds, but the connection to the phone will be wireless.

Interestingly, as you can see form the image just above, the wire placement will be a bit different than the Powerbeats 3. The wire connects to the body of the earphones in the current model. But with the Powerbeats 4, the designers opted to have the wire connect to the ear hook.

This is just an icon artwork discovered in iOS 13.3.1’s public release, so nothing is guaranteed. But it sure looks like we’ll be seeing the Powerbeats 4 soon enough.

If that is indeed the case, will you jump at the chance to buy the new design?

Apple releases tvOS 13.3.1

Apple has been seeding the latest update for the fourth- and fifth-generation Apple TV for quite some time, and now the software is available to the public.

Apple on Tuesday officially released the latest version of tvOS 13 to the fourth- and fifth-generation Apple TV set-top boxes. This brings the version to tvOS 13.3.1, and it can be downloaded via the Settings app then going to System –> Software Update. If you have automatic software updates activated, then the new software will be downloaded and installed automatically.

There aren’t any major forward facing features added to tvOS 13.3.1. This update is minor in scale, focusing on improvements and other changes to make the overall user experience better behind-the-scenes. However, if there are any new features discovered in the public release, we will update this post accordingly.

tvOS 13.3.1 is available to download and install now.

Apple releases iOS 13.3.1 and iPadOS 13.3.1

2020 January 28

Apple has been seeding developer and public betas of iOS 13.3.1 for weeks, but the wait for the final release is finally over.

On Tuesday, Apple officially released iOS 13.3.1 and iPadOS 13.3.1 to the public. Unlike previous updates to iOS 13, this one is relatively minor, all things considered. There weren’t any major forward facing features added to the new software during the beta phase, so it’s likely that will remain the case with the public launch today. However, if that does change and there are new features to take note of, we will update this post accordingly.

iOS 13.3.1 and iPadOS 13.3.1 are available now. To update, supported device owners simply need to open Settings –> General –> Software Update and follow the instructions on screen. If you have Automatic Updates switched on, the software will download and install automatically the next time you have your phone is charging.

The new software does come with some fixes, though. That includes to the Mail app that “could cause remote images to load even when the “Load Remote Images” setting is disabled”. In addition to that, the new software also fixes an issue with Communications Limits, which “could allow a contact to be added without entering the Screen Time passcode”.

It also allows users to quickly toggle on or off the U1 Ultra Wideband chip, which correlates to location data tracking.

There are other fixes and tweaks, mostly behind-the-scenes to help the overall performance of iOS 13.3.3.

The new software is available to download and install now.
