MacBidouille Rumor Summary
A brief summary of Macbidouille 970 rumors to date:
Initial reports from MacBidouille claimed that Peter Sandon from IBM would be presenting the PowerPC 970 at WWDC - allowing developers to see/demo a prototype 970 machine. Subsequent reports from the site, however, hinted that mass production of 970 PowerMacs had already begun and that full availability of the production 970 PowerMacs would arrive by WWDC (June 23, 2003).
Their most recent timeline provides them a bit more wiggle room with the 970 PowerMacs expected in "June/July 2003".
While an early report claimed speeds up to dual 2.3GHz, their published benchmarks only document machines up to Dual 1.8GHz in speed.
The 970 Motherboards themselves are said to be longer and narrower, and will utilize DDR 400, USB 2.0, AGP 8x, as well as Hypertransport.
At this time, it's unclear - MacBidouille claims almost immediate availability of the 970s at WWDC, while other sources are split on the topic. Some expect just a demo to be shown at WWDC... while one unverified source agrees and claims the "970 machines will be available the next day after Steve Jobs opening WWDC presentation. With a twist."

The iOS 16.4 update that is set to be released to the public in the near future includes voice isolation for cellular calls, according to notes that Apple shared today.
Apple says that Voice Isolation will prioritize your voice and block out the ambient noise around you, making for clearer phone calls where you can better hear the person you're chatting with and vice versa.
While year-over-year iPhone upgrades are not always groundbreaking, new features can begin to stack up over multiple generations. For example, the iPhone 15 Pro will be a notable upgrade for those who still have a three-year-old iPhone 12 Pro.
