New iPhone Leak Corroborates Apple’s Ugly Design

Will Apple really make its new iPhone this ugly? Following some corroboration earlier this week, now we almost definitively know that – shockingly – the answer is yes… 2019 iPhone schematics aligned to leaked renders STEVE HEMMERSTOFFER Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, aka the man who originated UglyiPhoneGate in January is back “seemingly confirming” that Apple’s new flagship iPhone will have the worst design in the range’s history. Hemmerstoffer, whose track record of accurate leaks is one of (if not the) best around, has obtained schematics which almost exactly match those leaked to Macotakara. Aligning the schematics with Hemmerstoffer’s once-controversial renders also…

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…

Australians are holding on to their old phones for longer, rather than refurbishing or recycling them — and it’s having real environmental consequences. Nearly half (45 per cent) of Australians intend to recycle their old device but this motivation drops off with only one in 10 actually following through, according to new research by MobileMuster, Australia’s government-accredited…
