Samsung Wireless Charger Duo, single Charger Pad take aim at Apple again

Samsung Wireless Charger Duo, single Charger Pad take aim at Apple again

Samsung has been putting out wireless charging pads long before Apple even embraced wireless charging technologies. It also didn't miss opportunities to poke fun at Apple's missteps in that arena, like the stillborn AirPower charging pads. A few months back, it also took jabs at the new MagSafe wireless charger's limits, both in charging output and placement, with its Wireless Charger Trio. According to a fresh new leak, Samsung will continue that tradition this week, though in a more toned-down manner.

Apple, Hyundai, reportedly in talks for self-driving cars

Apple, Hyundai, reportedly in talks for self-driving cars

For years, Apple has been repeatedly rumored to be setting its sights on self-driving cars. Those rumors seem to have come to a head in the past few weeks, with more concrete talks of Apple's plans, especially in the battery department. The latest word now is that Apple is in talks with South Korean car manufacturer Hyundai and, judging by how the latter's share immediately jumped, interest in this venture is pretty high, as are the expectations around Apple's self-driving car that may not even appear until 2028.

Facebook yields to iOS 14 privacy changes, leaves businesses a warning

Facebook yields to iOS 14 privacy changes, leaves businesses a warning

Apple has initiated rather big changes to its privacy policies and, unsurprisingly, there are a few that are not so happy about it. Also unsurprisingly, Facebook has been the loudest voice opposing changes to user data tracking across sites and apps but it has also accepted the reality that Apple isn't going to give in, no matter how loud it cries. Now it's telling businesses and partners that it has no choice but to comply with Apple's requirements that will have a negative impact on those businesses in the long run, at least according to Facebook.

Google iOS apps to finally get App Store Privacy Labels this week

Google iOS apps to finally get App Store Privacy Labels this week

Apple's new privacy rules for iOS, though by no means sudden or arbitrary, have been painted in a negative light by Facebook. In contrast, Google has actually been silent on the new cross-tracking limitations and requirements despite being a business that relies heavily on such systems. In fact, Google might have been too silent, some have insinuated, because it has also silently stopped updating its iOS apps since December to comply with the App Store's new rules. Apparently, it was just a matter of clashing schedules and holidays.

Apple chargers could become smaller, lighter with GaN adoption

Apple chargers could become smaller, lighter with GaN adoption

Apple's chargers have become the center of attention a few months back and not exactly in a good way. The company's decision to exclude the power adapter from iPhone packaging didn't sit well with everyone but that doesn't mean Apple isn't innovating its charging technology anymore. On the contrary, that actually means it can aim even higher for something consumers might want to buy, especially if they end up being more portable as this report seems to imply.

Apple 2021 product roadmap prediction is oddly familiar

The first Apple products of the year were predicted and listed in an email sent to investors this week. Collected by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the list appears to include AirTags first. Those are the tiny button-like devices that'd be Apple's answer to the many different iterations of this idea launched by other companies over the past decade, like Tile, Cube, and the Tzumi Tag It.

Smartphone trends for 2021: 5G and the mid-range march

It's that time of the year again when we look back to the past 12 months and take out our crystal balls to divine the next 12. Of course, we're not fortunetellers or clairvoyants but we do know a thing or two about watching market dynamics, guesstimating future movement, and having some optimism for the future. COVID-19 has clearly shaken up things, including in the mobile industry. As we try to look at what lies ahead, we might even see some of the more lasting ways the coronavirus will affect smartphones in 2021.

Apple purges nearly 40k games from Chinese App Store to close out 2020

As the world turns the page into 2021, Apple has removed a huge number of apps from the iOS App Store in China. In all, the company removed 46,000 apps from its Chinese storefront, the vast majority of which were games. The apps that were removed come from publishers who didn't provide Apple with a license to sell in-app purchases in their games or apps, with Apple implementing a December 31st deadline to provide those licenses earlier in the year.

Apple fan 3D prints very cool MagSafe Duo charging stand

One of the coolest things about 3D printing is that the devices have allowed individual users to build their own gadget accessories. Before the era of 3D printing, building your own charging stand for an iPhone 12 and an Apple Watch would've been almost impossible. With the arrival of 3D printers, anyone with a printer and some time can create just about anything they can dream up.
