Apple Brings Back The Spinning Numbers Wheel

By Francis SpierJune 6, 2022

The removal of the "spinning" numbers wheel used to set the alarm clock and timer on the iPhone to a specific time was one of Apple's least popular improvements to iOS last year. In iOS 14, Apple replaced it with a number pad and a small numbers wheel.

The upgrade was less comfortable to use. So it came as no surprise to us when Apple brought back the spinner for setting an alarm. The "spinning" number wheel returns to Apple's iPhone alarm clock.

Apple appears to be aware that not all iPhone users prefer to spin their way to the right time. As a result, while Apple restored the spinner, it did not eliminate the number pad entirely. As a result, keep this in mind.

A short touch of the spinner with your finger will open the number pad at the bottom of the display and allow you to click on the precise time you want the alarm to go off in the morning very easily.

In iOS 15, the spinning numbers wheel reappears. If you miss the number pad, tap the spinner at the bottom of the screen to bring it back - Apple's iOS alarm clock now has a spinning numbers wheel; mixed VR headset expected in H2 2022.

Apple's first AR headset has completed the second phase of prototype testing, according to a translated version of the Taiwanese edition of Digitimes. The device will go into mass production in the second quarter of next year before being sold in the second half of 2022. 

According to reports, the initial edition of Apple's mixed reality headgear would be big and pricey. The mixed reality AR/VR Apple headgear, which might have up to 15 camera modules, eye tracking, and iris recognition, could cost between $2,000 and $3,000. 

There was speculation a few years ago about a high-end version of the headset with a frame composed of "high-strength, a lightweight magnesium alloy material containing trace rare earth elements" and a 5nm CPU. This headset is thought to be aimed at industrial users.

Virtual Reality substitutes your real-world environment with a 3D one that appears to be genuine. This is ideal for gamers who want to immerse themselves in the game. The headset's processing would be handled by the user's iPhone, which would connect to it through Bluetooth. According to Digitimes, Apple might ship 2 million devices per year. 

Currently, the tech giant is reported to be working to reduce the weight of the mixed reality headgear while also seeking to increase the battery's efficiency.

Will Apple Glasses eventually be larger than iPhones?

Apple Glasses, its AR-based smartglasses, should be released sometime around 2023, maybe as late as 2025, not long after the mixed reality AR headset is released. Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, is a big fan of Augmented Reality, which places virtual overlays on top of real-world images. 

AR walking directions (like a giant arrow) are superimposed on top of a real-world image in Apple Maps, for example, with these arrows leading you in the appropriate direction and boxes pointing out landmarks.

Even if you are leaning toward Apple Glasses and do not care for the mixed reality headset, you should keep an eye on what the company does with its AR/VR product. That is because some of Apple's augmented reality features may easily make their way into Apple Glasses. 

Apple Glasses, according to reports, would resemble Facebook's newly revealed Ray-Ban glasses but will have more functions. Apple is expected to develop its own silicon for Apple Glasses, likely using the 2nm production node, according to WCCFtech. 

Apple Glasses were once thought to be the company's next big thing, with analyst Gene Munster predicting that the device will be larger than the iPhone.
