AirPlay is basically Apple’s answer to Bluetooth, where users can stream content from one device to another, assuming they support the AirPlay standard. For example, through AirPlay, users will be able to stream movies, videos, or music from their iPhone or iPad or Mac computer to another device, like speakers, the Apple TV, and so on.
Ever since Apple launched the iPad Pro with its 120Hz ProMotion display, many have wondered if the tech would ever find its way to the iPhone. The rumors initially claimed that this could happen with the iPhone 12 this year, but now according to leakster Max Weinbach, that could change for the worse.
When it comes to RAM on the iPhone, Apple hasn’t exactly rushed to try and cram as much RAM as possible into their handsets. This has been a slight point of contention amongst iPhone users who feel that their devices could benefit from extra RAM, and the good news is that Apple is willing to oblige.
If you thought that motion capture would be an expensive process that would require a lot of equipment, for the most part you might be right. This means that for small time or indie developers, trying to create a game involving motion capture could be out of their budgets, but Epic wants to change that.
While iOS 13 was a pretty decent update, iOS 14 seems to be bringing a ton of changes to Apple’s smartphone operating system, where the company will finally make widgets a bit more front-and-center and more useful than before.

A popular rumor at the moment is that the iPhone 12 will not ship with accessories like the EarPods and the power adapter. Some have attributed this reasoning to a reduction in costs, while others cite environmental issues. However, if you were hoping that a reduction in costs could mean a cheaper iPhone, you could be disappointed.
If the rumors are to be believed, Apple will make a rather controversial choice this year in which they will not be bundling earphones or a power adapter with the iPhone 12. In fact, a recent rumor claimed that Apple will modify the existing packaging of the iPhone 12 to make it “thinner” and more “exquisite”.
For the past several years, Apple’s smartphones have been a mixture between LCD and OLED displays, with the lower-end models using LCD while the more expensive offerings using OLED. However, that is expected to change this year because according to a report from Nikkei, it seems that Apple’s entire iPhone 12 lineup will use OLED screens.
It has been several iPhone generations since Apple removed Touch ID on their iPhones and introduced Face ID. However, as potentially more secure Face ID is over Touch ID, it’s hard to deny how much more convenient Touch ID is, especially in this day and age where we’re wearing masks which makes authenticating with Face ID a bit more difficult.
As the smartphone market matures, it means that in terms of performance gains, it isn’t quite leaps and bounds like it used to be. This means that handset makers need to find new ways to improve on their devices, and for the upcoming iPhone 12, it seems that Apple will be focusing on the camera.
There seems to be a rumor making its rounds that claims that for the iPhone 12, Apple will not be bundling accessories with the device.

We carry our phones with us all the time which makes it the perfect vessel for storing certain documents and cards, like credit/debit cards, loyalty cards, boarding passes, and more.

The notch design in smartphones has been a fiercely debated topic, where there are some who hate the design, while others don’t seem too bothered. Companies have tried various workarounds, such as using hole-punch cutouts, or popup cameras, but neither of these are necessarily ideal.
When you buy a smartphone, you can reasonably expect that it will come with a pair of earphones and also a charger. These are the basic accessories that are typically bundled with the majority of smartphones, but Apple is expected to turn things on their head by doing away with them completely.
