In this week’s top stories: iOS 14.5 brings new iPhone and Apple Watch features, new rumors about Apple’s mixed-reality headset, the latest on Apple Car, and much more. Read on for all of this week’s top Apple Stories.

iOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.4

Apple this week released the first developer and public betas of iOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.4. There are also new betas of iPadOS 14.5, tvOS 14.5, and macOS Big Sur 11.3.

Perhaps most notably, iOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.4 include a major change to the integration between iPhone and Apple Watch. For the first time, you can now use your Apple Watch to unlock your iPhone when you’re wearing a face mask.

There are other changes too, such as new privacy features, global dual-SIM 5G support, support for the latest Xbox and Playstation controls, and more. Check out our full hands-on video for all of the details.

Apple Headset

A new report from The Information this week offered a variety of specific details on Apple’s plans for a mixed-reality headset.

The report explained that the mixed-reality headset Apple is developing will be equipped with more than a dozen cameras for tracking hand movements and showing video of the real world to people wearing it. There would also be ultra-high-resolution 8K displays and advanced technology for tracking eye-tracking.

In terms of price, the report suggested that Apple has internally suggested a price of $3,000 for the Apple Headset — underscoring that it will be a very niche product. Apple is reportedly aiming to ship the headset as soon as 2022.

Apple Car

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo corroborated reports this week that Apple could team up with Hyundai on Apple Car production. Kuo suggested that the vehicle will use Hyundai’s electric car chassis known as E-GMP.

Specs of the E-GMP chassis include: range of over 300 miles on a full charge, and fast-charging gets it up to 80% capacity within 18 minutes. The maximum top speed is 160 mph, and 0-60 mph time is less than 3.5 seconds.

Then, CNBC and a local newspaper both reported that Apple and Hyundai were nearing finalization of the deal, and that it could be worth as much as $3.6 billion.

But on Friday evening, Bloomberg published a new report suggesting that Apple and Hyundai have recently paused their negotiations in regards to Apple Car. It’s unclear when, or if, the talks will resume.
