I made a mistake.

I f'd up, iOS 16.4.1 Dropped, and iPhone 15 Pro Leaks Galore

Hey guys, I'm gonna be honest, I messed up…for 2 reasons.

  1. I sent out the latest newsletter issue yesterday morning, but since it had a couple of affiliate links in it, it was sent straight to spam. That was unfortunate, but then this happened..

  2. Apple dropped a new software update on Friday! That’s a good thing, right? Well, yeah, but I sent out the newsletter just a few hours before it released, so some of the things mentioned were instantly outdated. 🤦🏻‍♂️

It sucks - especially after spending 4-5 hours on this - but I’m still learning, and I hope you don’t mind when I share some personal, behind-the-scenes details like this.

Anyways, there are some additional details to share - so let’s get to them.

PS: Since you guys are part of the Newsletter club, here’s a sneak peek at my next Apple Weekly episode that goes public in a few hours.

More iPhone 15 Pro Leaks


9to5Mac dropped some new, exclusive iPhone 15 Pro goodies on Friday as well! Here’s a quick summary:

  • New color: Deep Red!

  • Titanium frame

  • Thicker camera bump, meaning potential big improvements coming

  • USB-C will be on all iPhone 15 models, not just the Pros

  • Haptic volume and mute buttons

  • Record-breaking small bezels, measuring at 1.55mm

We now know nearly everything about the iPhone 15 at this point, but I’m sure there will be several curveballs thrown our way in the coming months.

But even if not, I’m very excited for this..especially that deep red color! I’ve been wanting that for SO many years.

iOS 16.4.1 Released!

We knew this update was coming, but not on a Friday! Anyways, here’s what you need to know about it:

  • 2 actively exploited bugs were patched!

    • This means that the security vulnerabilities were exploited and used out in the wild. So this is definitely something you want to be protected from.

  • Fixes Siri - If you had an issue with Siri not responding, it’s fixed

  • ‘Pushing hands’ emoji can now have more skin tones

I also made a YouTube video for the update, which you can check out here.

And if you missed it, here’s the previous issue:

Got some exciting additions coming to the newsletter over the next few weeks. We’re just getting started! Anyways, until next week ✌️
