The biggest bug to date of the PS5 causes it to turn off immediately after its power-up, Disney + could integrate Rated R content on its platform, the iPhone 13 may not have a Lightning port… Welcome to the recap of the week!
Between the sudden shortage and the many bugs reported, the news is very busy for the PS5 since its release. Between this FNAC customer who files a complaint, frustrated at not having been able to withdraw his order, and an incredible bug which prevents it from turning on altogether, the console continues to be talked about a week after its launch. Things are also moving on the side of smartphone manufacturers: Huawei is preparing to say goodbye to Kirin processors because of the US embargo, while Apple could begin the transition to single Magsafe charging. Meanwhile, Disney + is reportedly considering integrating adult content on its platform.
He could not withdraw his PS5, he files a complaint against the FNAC
“I did not make any mistakes and I find myself sanctioned ”. The disappointment was great for Joris, a 28-year-old Toulousain, when he was told at the FNAC counter thathe will not be able to leave with his PS5 as expected. In fact, employees explain to him that he is one of the five unlucky ones whose console has simply disappeared from stocks of the shop. Never mind, Joris decides to approach his lawyer to clarify this matter, who advises him to send a formal notice to the French group. In response, FNAC stated that, “before coming to the store, the customer was informed by email of the non-availability of the product and received a gift voucher of € 50 in compensation for the inconvenience caused. However, the customer went to the store and the store teams were unable to return the product. ” The group claims that Joris will receive his PS5 in early December. Indeed, Sony has announced that stock will be available before Christmas.
PS5s switch off immediately after switching on
This week, many PS5 bugs were reported by users around the world. The most important is probably the one that simply prevents the console from turning on. Even worse : no solution exists at present. Indeed, if the other problems encountered, such as the discs which spin when not played or Spider-Man Morales which is automatically uninstalled, are generally resolved thanks to a firmware update, this is a question of ” a more complex problem that requires a return of the console to the manufacturer. Sony, having yet to find the source of the malfunction, promises to return a PS5 within 3 days to the players concerned. In total they would be Several dozens in that case.
Trailer announces the arrival of adult content on Disney +
Kingsman, Deadpool, Logan … All these films could land on Disney + as soon as April 2021. A trailer leaked on Reddit shows clips of several films and series belonging to the entertainment giant, but not yet present on the platform. In question, their rating “Rated R“, Not really in line with the family editorial line of the streaming service. However, it seems that this is about to change, with the arrival of the category “Disney18 +”Announced in the trailer. Thanks to the latter, Disney + could attract a new wave of users, while it already has 73 million subscribers a year after its launch. We also find in this trailer ABC series like Modern Family or Good doctor alongside the big blockbusters. Finally the next one Black widow, the release of which was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, would be available from April 26 with premium access, like Mulan when it was released in the United States.
The Huawei P50 is doomed to bury the Kirin processor
The United States embargo has yet to get the better of Huawei. The P50, its next smartphone, is scheduled for next year. Until now, the Chinese manufacturer worked alongside TSMC, the company that produces its Kirin processors. However, the latter succumbed to pressure from the US government and broken partnership. Huawei will therefore have to be satisfied with its remaining stocks, in theory sufficiently supplied to equip its next flagships. It will therefore be the latest smartphone of the firm powered by this processor. The United States having authorized Qualcomm to sell chips to the Chinese group, the latter will probably fall back on this fallback solution. According to some reports, the Huawei P50 will also be equipped with a OLED display.
IPhone 13 likely won’t have a Lightning port
Present on all Apple smartphones since the iPhone 5, the Lightning port could well disappear next year. Instead, Apple would bet everything on wireless charging technology MagSafe, appeared with iPhones 12. The information comes from renowned leaker Jon Presser, who had already announced the end of Lightning last May. According to him, one of four iPhones 13 to come will only be compatible with Magsafe, which allows 2x faster recharging. If the announcement fits rather well with the stated ambitions of Apple, it should nevertheless be taken with hindsight. Jon Presser has indeed been wrong on several occasions in recent months.
