Pair your Xbox One and PS4 controller to iPhone with iOS 13: Here’s how

There's been so much news about Apple lately that one new feature in iOS 13 may have been overlooked by the larger Apple user base. With the new operating system comes new functionality for a wider range of Bluetooth controllers. This is Apple making good on a promise it made earlier in the year to expand Bluetooth functionality within iOS 13, and it's good news for anyone who plays games on console.

Apple Watch Series 5 battery life is the real deal

Apple Watch Series 5 battery life is the real deal

I've spent the past week with the Apple Watch Series 5 on my wrist, and while it's still a little too early for a full review, I've definitely come to appreciate some of the headline features. The always-on display addresses one of the lingering criticisms of the smartwatch, both from owners and would-be wearers, that you couldn't see the time or other information without waking the Apple Watch first. Apple fixes that, and it does it in a clever way.

Tens of thousands of suspicious Facebook apps suspended in privacy investigation

Facebook released a statement this morning about a privacy investigation of Facebook app developers. This is what Facebook calls their "ongoing App Developer Investigation" in which they've begun taking a closer look at apps with access to "large amounts of information." This is part of the overarching privacy disaster going on at Facebook since March of 2018. Today Facebook said this investigation is "part of our response to the episode involving Cambridge Analytica."

Apple Arcade goes live for all: Here’s what you need to know

Apple Arcade goes live for all: Here’s what you need to know

For years now, mobile games have been in something of a strange spot. Many mobile games survive by being free-to-play titles packed with microtransactions (or, more rarely, advertisements), and games that charge upfront tend to find a lower level of success than their free-to-play counterparts. Apple is looking to change the way we pay for mobile games with the launch of Apple Arcade, which has gone live alongside the release of iOS 13.

John Wick Hex game trailer and release date revealed

John Wick Hex game trailer and release date revealed

This morning we're taking a peek at the newest trailer for the video game John Wick Hex. This game could've gone so wrong - but it looks like it's going very, very right. When you've got a game that's based on a movie series that's largely about "guns, lots of guns," it's easy to imagine which games you could copy. But for John Wick Hex, it would appear that the folks at Bithell Games developed a new sort of angle - just like the films presented something just a LITTLE different from what came before - just different enough!

The Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro is living up to expectations

The Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro is living up to expectations

I'll admit it, I was a little bit obsessed with the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro when Apple announced it last week. It still feels like an atypical color for Apple to pick, not quite as serious as Space Gray or Silver, but neither as colorful as some of the iPhone 11's finishes. Of course, it's not only the color of the case that sticks out.

Tim Cook’s Android selfie snapper gives Twitter a laugh on iPhone 11 release day

Today Apple took what might've been a sort of PR flub into an opportunity to sell another iPhone. Today is the release date for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, so CEO Tim Cook and retail chief Deirdre O'Brien headed to the most extravagant Apple Store in the world. That's the newly-remodeled Manhattan Fifth Avenue Store, where a crowd did, indeed, gather for the event.

Nintendo Switch Lite launch: How to transfer game saves and user data

Today is the day the Nintendo Switch Lite launches. Most people who already own a Switch will likely be sticking with what they have, but if you've decided to change things up and jump to the Switch Lite, you'll need to know how to transfer your game saves and your user data.

Terminator: Resistance trailer isn’t Colonial Marines… we hope

Terminator: Resistance trailer isn’t Colonial Marines… we hope

The trailer begins with a block of TERMINATOR lettering that says we'll be playing in Los Angeles, 2028, 31 years after Judgement Day. It looks a whole lot like we're going to be playing a first person shooter like METRO Exodus but with terminator machines and sound effects and visuals instead of post-apocalyptic Russian monster madness.

Faraday Future has a big plan – and a big problem

Faraday Future has a big plan – and a big problem

Faraday Future has big plans, and it needs big money to pay for them. The car startup was meant to weave together the electrification of Tesla, the user-experience of Apple, the data wrangling of Google, and the shared mobility flexibility of Uber. Instead it ended up with unpaid suppliers, frustrated investors, and a bank account nowhere near deep enough to cover its ambitions.
