Apple has temporarily closed many stores in recent weeks as it copes with the highly contagious omicron variant, but it’s trying a different approach with the New York shutdown. The company is still letting customers place orders online and pick them up at the stores. Shoppers won’t be able to enter the store to browse or purchase anything onsite, and technical support from the Genius Bar won’t be available.
Up through the iPhone 12, Apple users could turn on or off a noise-canceling feature for phone calls through the Accessibility settings. For an unknown reason, this feature was never available for iPhone 13 users, and they have been waiting for months for Apple to address this issue.
According to the app, new workouts and meditations inspired by the start of 2022 have arrived. For users, they just need to open the Fitness app to discover new sections, such as “Best of 2021,” “Celebrate,” as well as “New Workouts” and “New Meditations.”
Apple on Monday announced a limited edition of its Beats Studio Buds wireless earphones to celebrate the Lunar New Year, which is part of the Lunar calendar adopted by Asian countries like China. The special edition Studio Buds feature a red and gold design.
Apple said the first 20,000 customers in Japan who purchase a new iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, or iPhone SE during the promotion will also receive a limited-edition AirTag with a custom-designed engraving.
Stories like Apple shutting more stores make me nervous. I am scheduled to return to office (partially) next week!
