As we get older, our eyesight is one of the things that starts to go, which is why they say that when we are young, we should take better care of our eyes so that in the future, any issues we have might not be quite as severe. However, thanks to science and technology, perhaps there might be a way to treat it.
Bacteria and viruses aren’t new, but if there is anything that the coronavirus pandemic has taught us, it is how easily transmittable some of them are, and how important practicing good hygiene is. While it is possible that one day the coronavirus will be a thing of the past, it doesn’t mean that we should go back to our normal ways.
Back in the early days of the automobile, there was no such thing as onboard computers and cars were pretty much purely mechanical. For the most part, cars these days are still largely mechanical, but now come with computers built into them that have software to better control and fine tune the car in a myriad of ways.
Uber started out as a ridesharing company, but later the company leveraged its drivers to form Uber Eats, where drivers could also go pickup food orders along their routes and deliver them to customers as a way of earning a bit more money. However, in recent times due to the pandemic, the number of people relying on ridesharing is clearly down, while demand for food delivery is going up.
Apple’s transition away from Intel to their own custom ARM chipsets for their Mac computers has been rumored for a long time, and it was at WWDC last week that Apple made the move official. There is no doubt that many are skeptical about the move, with some expressing concern, while others are excited.
If you were to take a look at video recordings you made either on your phone or camera from back in the day and play it back on a display with a higher resolution, it might look a bit fuzzy or grainy. This is because back in the day, videos on our phones were captured at a lower resolution.
To help stop the spread of the coronavirus, contact tracing comes into play. This is used to help trace the path of the infection to see who the infected person might have come into contact with, which in turn allows authorities to reach out to them to get them tested and also possibly quarantined to reduce the spread as much as possible.
If you enjoy watching Netflix on your Mac computer, there’s a chance that you might have been a bit disappointed in terms of stream quality. This is because despite Netflix offering 4K streams, macOS computers could never quite take full advantage of that, but that is expected to change in Safari in the upcoming macOS Big Sur update.
When applying for a credit card, there needs to be certain checks done in order to ensure that customers are eligible for it. This means that depending on your situation, you may or may not be approved to get one. There is a similar process when it comes to applying for the Apple Card, and some customers might have been rejected.
In the recent weeks and months, we’ve started to see more iPhone 12 leaks. These leaks merely show us photos and concept images of what the phone could look like, but how will it look like in person, and more importantly, how will it feel in our hands? Thanks to a video by iupdate, we now have an idea.
The concept of ARM-based computers isn’t new, and in fact, other companies have attempted this in the past. Microsoft is one of those companies where they launched the Surface Pro X back in 2019. However, it seems that despite it being a newer device, it appears that Geekbench listings have revealed that Apple’s Mac Mini powered by the A12Z Bionic chipset has managed to outperform it.
The Last of Us Part 2 was recently released and it has sold very, very well. There have been some mixed reviews where there are some who feel that it does not quite live up to the original game. It is exactly those sentiments that makes it seem like a third title in the franchise would be quite a difficult feat to pull off.
The other day, it was reported that popular music app TikTok was snooping on the clipboards of iOS users. This is actually thanks to a new feature in iOS 14 in which it will notify users whenever an app accesses their device’s clipboard. Now upon further investigation, TikTok is not alone in doing this.
Attaching an external drive to the iPad is pretty easy and straightforward, and thanks to Apple finally introducing a dedicated file manager with the Files app, users will be able to browse the contents of their drive pretty easily. The good news is that if you do rely on encrypted drives and would like to access them on the iPad, that will be possible soon enough.
Several years ago, Psy’s “Gangnam Style” K-pop song broke several YouTube records when it was released. Fast forward to today, it seems that many new K-pop releases have also been beating various YouTube records, like when K-pop group BTS managed to reach 74.6 million views within the first 24-hours of releasing “Boy With Luv”.
According to recent rumors, it has been suggested that the iPhone 12 might not ship with EarPods. This was semi-acceptable as the EarPods aren’t exactly the best of earphones, so we’re not sure how many people would actually miss them. However, it was later reported that the iPhone 12 might not ship with a charger, which sounded a bit sketchy.
Back in the day, “mini” sized tablets were all the rage, but in case you feel that maybe the iPad mini is starting to feel a tad bit too small for your liking, you could be in luck because according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that come 2021, Apple is expected to launch a larger version of the iPad mini.
There’s really nothing not to like about the Apple Pencil. Ok, maybe it is kind of expensive, but if you’re someone who creates a lot of digital art, the low-latency of the Apple Pencil and the palm rejection features are pretty awesome, but as is the case with most styluses, it isn’t quite the same compared to putting pen (or pencil) to actual paper.
If you have been a loyal iPhone user over the past few years, chances are you might have built up a pretty large library of photos that you’ve taken with your iPhone. It can be a bit difficult to sort through them, although Apple has tried to make it easier with location-based information, but iOS 14 will help to improve on that.
Physical credit card skimmers aren’t new and while they can be disguised, it is relatively easy to spot it if you know what you’re looking for.
