Logitech made Apple’s Pro Display XDR a special 4K webcam

Your $5k+ may get you Apple's fanciest monitor yet, but look closely and you'll see that the Apple Pro Display XDR doesn't have a webcam - a gap Logitech plans to fill. The Retina 6K panel isn't short on pixels but Apple opted to leave out a camera, not so much as a cost-cutting exercise but one that recognized where the Pro Display XDR was likely to be used.

If you want to give your new Mac Pro (2019) a fancy set of roller-skates, be prepared to dig deep. Apple's new pro-spec computer isn't short on headline-worthy specifications, with features like special modular graphics cards and up to 28-core processors, but it's arguably the optional Mac Pro wheels that caused the most consternation back when the new tower was revealed earlier in the year.

iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case camera button secrets revealed by iFixit X-Ray

iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case camera button secrets revealed by iFixit X-Ray

When Apple unveiled its smart battery cases back in 2015 for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, it was ridiculed for the massive bump that ruined the phone's clean aesthetic. It was almost as if the company was getting back at people who have been clamoring for such an accessory but Apple never backed down from that "humpback" design. In fact, it has embraced it even further this year by adding a new function, a physical camera button. It wasn't completely magical but was still novel enough for iFixit to want to look inside without tearing it down at all.

That may be the situation that Apple is facing after it has been discovered that it very quietly removed the "Reviews & Ratings" section of product pages on its online Store, leaving many to wonder if Apple is sourgraping over a flood of negative comments.

Apple iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case has a dedicated camera button

As expected, Apple has launched a Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 11 family. From an aesthetic standpoint, this case is mostly what we'd expect, as it still features that distinctive bump on the back. The stated goal of extending your phone's battery is also the same, but this case in particular has a nifty feature that might help it stand out from all the other battery cases vying for your dollar.

Google Stadia Controller CLAW clip now has a price tag, still no date

Stadia is quickly becoming one of Google's most controversial products and, for the first time, it's not because of privacy concerns. The launch has been rocky at best but Google really has little choice but to keep moving forward. In fact, it has just put up the product page for what is perhaps Stadia's first nonessential accessory, a $15 clip that holds your Pixel phone in place above the Stadia Controller. Presuming you have both, of course.

Sony SRS-WS1 is a wireless speaker you wear around your neck

Wireless audio equipment have gotten a surge of popularity and innovation, in no small part thanks to the demise of the venerable headphone jack on smartphones. A variety of wireless headsets have popped up, ranging from gigantic over ear cups to not so tiny earbuds.
