Apple this week released iOS 12.3, watchOS 5.2.1, tvOS 12.3 and macOS 10.14.5 to the public. The new tvOS and iOS updates include Apple’s overhauled TV app with support for Apple TV Channels. Meanwhile, watchOS 5.2.1 packs new Pride watch faces, as well as a fix for the Explorer watch face.

This week also brought new rumors to the upcoming iPhone, as new leaks have been shown. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman shared an image of 2019 iPhone molds on Twitter. The images reaffirm that all of the new 2019 iPhones will feature a square camera bump, with the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successors adding a third camera, and the iPhone XR successor adding a second camera.

Ahead of the public release of Apple Card, Apple employees have started receiving their own branded credit cards as part of beta testing. A leak this week offered our first look at how Apple Card will look out of the box.

Intel on Tuesday disclosed its latest chip vulnerability. Dubbed “ZombieLoad,” this vulnerability affected almost every Mac since 2011, with Apple patching it with macOS 10.14.5. In a support document, Apple explained how to enable full mitigation against the attacks, warning of an up-to 40 percent performance penalty.
