Apple kills a popular iPhone feature

Apple discontinues popular iPhone feature: Apple is one of the market leaders in terms of technology and has time and again proved to be a game changer for the technology industry. However, this time Apple has been forced to go back a little and get rid of the 3D Touch feature. The announcement was made during the WWDC 2019 where the beta version of the iOS 13 was announced. This feature was launched with the iPhone 6S and had continued in the latest iPhone models which were XS and XS Max.…

Samsung could soon launch a phone with a truly all-screen front

One of the main things that smartphone makers seem to be working towards at the moment is an all-screen design on their phones. By that we mean a front with no notch, bezel or punch-hole camera, and ideally no pop-up camera either, and it’s a goal that Samsung has reportedly reconfirmed that it’s aiming for. According to MyDrivers, South Korean media reported that Samsung is working on a “perfect full screen”, one which could be achieved by building the camera into the screen invisibly, much like an in-screen fingerprint scanner. This…

Apple drops HomePod price a year after launch

Apple has slashed the price of the HomePod across all regions where it is available. In the US, the HomePod is now priced at $299 instead of the previous $349. In the UK, it’s now available for £279 instead of £319. Other regions, too, have seen a price drop. The HomePod price drop is somewhat unconventional for Apple. Usually, Apple products keep their price far too long into the product cycle. This is usually seen on Macs, that don’t get updated as often as the iOS devices. One could surmise…

Apple’s iPad, iMac, and AirPod launches weren’t just a surprise, they were a smart strategy shift

I expected “one more thing” yesterday, and I was bummed when I didn’t get it. Sure, I was disappointed, but my anticipation for another hardware refresh only proved that Apple’s experiment with dribbling out modest product releases is working. On each of the first three days of this work week, Apple dropped updated versions of existing products with little of its typical fanfare or event theatrics. It began with the iPad mini and iPad Air on Monday and then progressed to the iMac on Tuesday and the AirPods on Wednesday. Nobody would call these earthshaking updates.…

Apple Watch FlickType Gesture Keyboard App Makes Typing A Breeze: Is It Any Good?

A screen as small as an Apple Watch is not designed for written interactions.

Apple’s New iPhones Have A Nasty Surprise

Speaking to official accessory makers, acclaimed Japanese tech site Macotakara has revealed Apple will ignore recent pledges about valueand once again ship all its new 2019 iPhones (dubbed ‘iPhone 11’) with cost-saving slow 5W chargers. Moreover, upgrading to new iPhones to fast chargers will remain eye-wateringly expensive. The reason for this is a one-two punch of stubborn inactivity. Firstly, Apple will continue to ship not only slow chargers with new iPhones but slow charging USB-A cables as well. This means owners will need to buy both the 18W charger ($30) and one-metre USB-C…
