The problem with official accessories is that they can be pretty expensive. Take Apple’s Lightning cable for example, there are much cheaper options out there, and for the price you pay, you would think that Apple would offer a much better quality product, especially since the Lightning cable is known to fray and has reportedly caused electrocutions in the past.
One of the new features of iOS 14 that users have been anticipating is the ability to set default apps. Previously, website links would typically open in Safari, even if you use Chrome primarily. Email links would also open in the iOS Mail app, despite the fact that users might be using other apps like Outlook, Gmail, and so on.
According to a recent rumor, it was suggested that the iPhone 12 series could be announced at an event scheduled for the 13th of October. Apple has yet to officially confirm the dates, but the latest tweet from well-known leakster Jon Prosser has “confirmed” that date to be true based on his sources.
According to the rumors, Apple is expected to host an iPhone event in October. Given that we’re almost towards the end of September, there’s a very good chance that this is true, although when exactly remains to be seen. But according to a report from AppleInsider, we now have a date to look forward to.
The other day, Microsoft officially launched Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on Android. This basically allows Android gamers to stream Xbox games on their Android mobile devices, but the question remains – what about iPhone users? The good news for iPhone users is that Microsoft has not given up yet.
If the rumors are to be believed, Apple is expected to launch as many as four new iPhones this coming October. Given that they will all fall under the iPhone 12 lineup, this could get rather confusing in terms of naming, but now we know how Apple might end up naming some of their devices.
One of the features of iOS 14 is that the company is finally bringing support for picture-in-picture mode when it comes to videos. Apps, of course, need to be updated to take advantage of the new feature. YouTube was discovered to be testing this out in their app back in August, but they have yet to update their app to support it.
We know that sometimes buying extended warranty can feel a bit like a rip-off, but there are moments when something happens to your device and you’re glad that you did. Now, AppleCare+ is by no means cheap as far as extended warranties are concerned, but it seems that it is now actually more worth it than ever.
Heads up iPhone and iPad users, if you have been looking forward to checking out the latest iOS and iPadOS update, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has since officially released iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 where both the software updates for Apple’s smartphones and tablets are now available for download.
There are games designed for touchscreen devices, but there are also games that stand to benefit from using a physical controller. If you prefer using physical controllers for your mobile games, then you might be interested to learn that Razer has since unveiled its new Kishi controller for iOS devices.
Earlier this year, Apple introduced the iPhone SE. This is the company’s latest attempt at creating an affordable iPhone, but the problem with it is that it was a bit small compared to some of Apple’s other iPhones. This is where the rumors later suggested that Apple could actually have an iPhone SE Plus in the works for the second half of 2020.
Recently, it was revealed that at the somewhat last minute, Apple put the iPhone 12 to production but scrapped their plans to include a 120Hz display. This is rather disappointing given that many Android phones have displays with similar refresh rates, not to mention it debuted in the iPad Pro years ago.
The notch of the iPhone series has been kind of a sore spot in terms of design. Some have defended Apple’s decision by claiming that you kind of don’t notice the notch’s existence after a while, but the fact that it is still there simply cannot be ignored. However, that could change with the company’s 2021 smartphones.
While the 2020 iPad Pro refresh didn’t really seem like that big of a deal, one of the changes that Apple introduced to the tablet came in the form of a LiDAR scanner. Following that, the rumors started flowing that suggested that a similar hardware feature could also be coming to the iPhone 12.
