Surface Pro 7 ad throws shade at MacBook Pro, misses the point

Surface Pro 7 ad throws shade at MacBook Pro, misses the point

The Surface Pro 2-in-1 detachable tablet was arguably a stroke of genius and a gold mine for Microsoft but the company may have already milked the cow dry. The product line has seen very little significant innovation or upgrade in the past generations and the Surface Pro 8 doesn't sound like something terribly exciting either. Still, Microsoft seems quite insistent on pitting the current Surface Pro 7 against the MacBook Pro and while it does make some strong arguments, it might have also missed the point, especially with Apple's latest iteration.

iPhone 12, MagSafe could interfere with pacemakers

Just like many of its small but significant conveniences, Apple used magnets to bring a bit of stability when wirelessly charging the iPhone 12. Impressive as it may be, the iPhone 12 and its matching MagSafe accessories had one side effect that may have gone unnoticed until recently.

Galaxy Watch 3, Apple Watch 7 might get blood sugar measurement function

While smartwatch makers have struggled for years to find a proper place for smartwatches, Apple pretty much created that space with a focus on health-related features that mere smart fitness bands couldn't offer. That has mostly revolved around functions for measuring and detecting heart-related conditions but a new report suggests that Samsung and Apple may be moving on to a much-needed functionality that will save potentially thousands of users from having to painfully draw multiple times a day.

Apple VR headset – Ongoing developments and things to know

Apple VR headset – Ongoing developments and things to know

Apple has been chasing after augmented reality and virtual reality for almost a decade now, hoping to come up with a commercially feasible product that changes the way we interact with our devices and the world around us in more ways than one. The Cupertino giant planned to launch the combined VR/AR headset in 2020, but in late 2019 it was announced that the launch will be delayed to 2022 as the then developed prototype didn’t meet the quality standards at Apple – mainly due to its bulky size.

iPhone 13 is going to be a different deal: Here’s why

It is probably very early to make a claim about the forthcoming iPhone – or a new lineup. But with rumors flowing in from every side of the globe, it’s fitting to touch upon certain aspects that’ll make the iPhone 13 a different deal.

If Apple lets me trash this dongle I’ll be overjoyed

I'm a Mac user, and a macOS fan, and I like Apple's industrial design, but the chatter of a return of the SD card slot to upcoming MacBook Pro laptops has me muttering a silent prayer of thanks. It feels like we've been languishing in dongle hell for many years now, and while Apple wasn't alone in betting on a tech future dominated by a single port, it's certainly been the most stubborn about that.

iOS 15 might finally drop iPhone 6s, iPhone SE (2016)

Apple is known and highly-praised for its commitment to support years-old smartphones, tablets, and computers, something that, unfortunately, hasn't caught on in the Android world. Even Apple, however, sometimes has to eventually cut off some older devices, though still not as fast or as often as even Google. Soon, that culling period might be happening again this year with the release of iOS 15 which may no longer support devices that are more than five years old by the time it rolls out.

iPad Mini 6 leak sounds almost too good to be true

While Apple continues to push the iPads as the next generation of computers, that rhetoric really only applies to its iPad Pro line. The lines between its various iPads, however, have started to blur, especially with the addition of Apple Pencil support all the way down to the bottom. The iPad Mini, however, still remains Apple's simplest and most affordable entry point, making these details about the alleged iPad Mini 6 sound more like a wishlist.
