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. This means that the iPhone 12 might not ship with both the EarPods and the charger, both of which are very common accessories that we see bundled with pretty much all smartphones.
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.
Now that the Sony PS5 has been more or less revealed in full, the next thing gamers are probably wondering is how much it will cost and when it will be available for purchase.

Over the years ever since the Apple Watch was introduced, we’ve been hearing various stories of how the device has saved the lives of many of its users by alerting them to potential heart issues. This allowed the wearer to seek out medical treatment early, which as a result potentially saved many lives in the process.
For the most part, our electronics hate water which is why sometimes taking a Bluetooth speaker to the beach or to the pool might not necessarily be the best of ideas. However, if you’re looking for a speaker that has the ability to withstand water, then Marshall’s latest Emberton speakers might be worth checking out.
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.
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.
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. Unfortunately, it seems that credit card skimmers have gone virtual where according to a report from Malwarebytes, it appears that hackers are now hiding these virtual skimmers inside the metadata of images on compromised online storefronts.
Pretty much all our smartphones come with a built-in calculator app. It’s a standard feature that we probably don’t have to think too much about, but when it comes to devices like the iPad, for some inexplicable reason, there isn’t one. We know you can download third-party calculator apps, but why hasn’t Apple included it?
Updates are supposed to be good things. They’re supposed to introduce fixes for problems, close security vulnerabilities, introduce new features, and improve on existing ones. But it seems that Microsoft’s Windows updates have been rather problematic, and the latest June update for Windows 10 is one of them.
After about a year or so of making the rumor rounds, Apple finally confirmed that native sleep tracking would be introduced in watchOS 7. This is great news for those who want to track their sleeping patterns, but it also raises a new problem: battery. How are users expected to wear the watch all day and all night? When would be a good time to charge it?
One of the benefits of Apple shifting to ARM-based chipsets is that it might address thermal issues that one might associate with regular computer processors. This also means that Apple could do away with additional components like a fan, and as a result, we could be seeing thinner laptops from the company in the future.
Apps do many things in the background that we might not necessarily be aware of, which is why companies like Apple and Google have built in permissions into apps where developers will need to ask for permission in order to access certain features of our phones, like photos, cameras, microphone, and so on.
