Apple Has A Pretty Neat Idea That Combines Two iPads Together
Aside from using the iPad as a tablet, which was what it was originally designed for, not too long ago Apple introduced a feature for macOS called Sidecar which basically allows users to use their iPads as a secondary display.

Could Vein ID Be Apple’s Next Big Security Feature?
Given that all our faces are unique, the idea behind Face ID is that it makes it more secure than fingerprints because you can’t exactly “lift” a face like you would a fingerprint.

Apple’s AR Glasses Could Turn Any Surface Into A Touchscreen
One of the things Apple does really well is how they integrate their products with each other.

Future Apple Pencils Could Act As A Real Life Color Picker
If you own the Apple Pencil and use it together with apps like Procreate, you probably know that you can use the Apple Pencil to act as a color picker where you can select colors in images within the app and replicate said colors.

Apple Could Be Exploring Wireless Charging Battery Cases

This Is How Sony Could Handle Backwards Compatibility On The PS5
When it comes to backwards compatibility on consoles, it’s safe to say that Microsoft has done a much better job compared to Sony. For instance, the PS4 supports backwards compatibility with PS3 games, but that’s pretty much it, whereas the Xbox One supports the original Xbox and Xbox 360 games.

Apple Is Still Working On Touch ID For The iPhone
It has been several iPhone generations since Apple removed Touch ID on their iPhones and introduced Face ID.
