For a decade, we’ve been able to predict Apple’s release patterns like the weather. Each fall, a new iPhone and operating system are in the forecast, with a chance of upgraded MacBooks and iPads. This year, with iOS 15, we’re anticipating new features like media sharing in FaceTime, text recognition in photos, and a new Focus mode that helps you stay on task. The forthcoming new iPhone could have a longer-lasting battery and smaller notch, and we could see new AirPods and a MacBook Pro equipped with an even more powerful chip than the M1. Of course, we’ve got everything you need to know about iOS 15 (page 8) and the iPhone 13 (page 14) in this issue. But we also want to zoom out and take you back to…

stuff the iphone life team is loving

Ashleigh Page, Feature Writer Arteza Real Brush Pens ($32.99) Initially purchased for travel, these nifty brush pens quickly became my favorite medium. With a little added water, I can blend colors and create texture with all the versatility of regular paints, but without the mess. Amy Spitzfaden-Both, Associate Editor Cocofloss 3-Spool Set ($25) I love everything about this floss, from its colors to its scents to the fact that it’s made of natural ingredients that clean a lot better than the plastic stuff I was using. Plus, the packaging is sustainable! Erin MacPherson, Web Editor Logitech MS Master 2S Mouse ($63 on Amazon) I love my Logitech MX Master 2S mouse.

anticipating the iphone 13

I Phone 13 rumors are flying, and with fall on the horizon, it’s natural to wonder, “What’s next?” Apple will likely unveil the new iPhone by mid-September, and there are some interesting theories about the release, such as a bigger battery and the return of Touch ID. We’ve done some digging and have compiled the most compelling rumors for you here. WHEN WILL WE SEE IT? With the exception of the iPhone SE, Apple has announced its new iPhone lineup every fall since 2011. While Apple deviated from its usual schedule last year with the late October release of the iPhone 12, we typically see an earlyto mid-September announcement, with the release about a week later. Even with the variance we saw last year, we’ll likely see the new iPhone line in…

enter airtags

Apple’s new AirTag is a device that helps you find those important items you’re always misplacing. You can attach one to your keys, purse, backpack, or even the elusive remote (with the help of some adhesive) and use the Find My app on your iPhone or iPad to locate it. Here, I’ll share my experiences with the AirTag, warts and all, after a month of hands-on testing. TRACKING DOWN ITEMS IN YOUR HOUSE I’m happy to report that as far as tracking misplaced items, the AirTag delivers on its promise. After a short setup process, I was able to successfully use three different methods to locate the AirTag, whether hidden in my apartment or left with a friend. Two of these methods will be familiar to Find My users: you can have…
