All 2020 iPhone 12 phones appear to leak at once

Today a leak showed multiple new iPhones at once, indicating the full line of smartphones coming from Apple for the entire rest of the year. All of the models appear to be "iPhone 12" related, with just one device missing from the bunch - the device that'll likely be released here in April - unless that device has a different name here than it did in previous leaks. The full iPhone 12 collection will likely be revealed in September of 2020, if history serves as precedent.

AirPods single replacements ship with new, incompatible firmware

AirPods single replacements ship with new, incompatible firmware

True Wireless Stereo or TWS earbuds like the Apple AirPods are convenient and handy when you don't want to bother with wires but they also have their downsides exactly because of that. It's easy enough to lose one or both or hove one suddenly break while the other remains intact. Fortunately, Apple offers replacements for even just a single AirPod. Unfortunately, the single replacements it has been shipping apparently can't work with an older AirPod because of a mismatch in the firmware the new ones are running.

iPhone 12 leak points to smaller notch and Home screen widgets

iPhone 12 leak points to smaller notch and Home screen widgets

While Apple is quite famous for its obsession with design and detail, some have begun to doubt its ability to continue that legacy in a post-Jobs, post-Ive world. The company has definitely made some rather unpopular decisions, even after those have been copied and popularized by its rivals. The large notch on the iPhone X and its successors is one such controversial design but it seems that Apple might be yielding a bit of ground in the next iPhone coming later this year.

Apple may have a VR/AR live event tech specialist in its sights

Apple may have a VR/AR live event tech specialist in its sights

Apple could be close to buying a virtual reality company focused on streaming immersive sports, music, and entertainment experiences, as the Cupertino firm readies its big tech and content push for VR and AR. Though Apple currently doesn't have a virtual reality hardware product of its own, platforms like ARKit and recent devices like the LIDAR camera on the new iPad Pro have made it clear that the augmented reality is high on its agenda.

iPhone 12 Pro leak points to long-awaited LiDAR feature

iPhone 12 Pro leak points to long-awaited LiDAR feature

The iPad Pro's inclusion of a LiDAR system wasn't exactly unexpected but it was still surprising to some extent. Leaks have hinted at Apple taking the professional tablet's cameras in that direction but more probably expected the technology to come to the iPhones first. It turns out that, probably due to scheduling, the iPad Pro was only getting a head start and the iPhone 12, specifically the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, will be getting that same camera and sensor combo for improved 3D object identification.

New iPad Pro gets a clever privacy feature from Apple’s MacBooks

Apple quietly added a new privacy feature to the latest iPad Pro, borrowing a MacBook security feature to help prevent eavesdropping on its 2020 tablets. With the launch of the 2018 MacBook range and the introduction of the Apple T2 security chip, closing the lid of the notebooks automatically disconnects the hardware microphones.

iPhone SE name for 2020 model accidentally confirmed by Apple

iPhone SE name for 2020 model accidentally confirmed by Apple

Well, that didn't take long. It was recently revealed, through the usual trusted sources, that Apple's next iPhone of the affordable kind will, in fact, be named the iPhone SE, just with a "2020" attached to it. Of course, that's more or less still unofficial, even if it makes sense, until Apple itself confirms it. It just did, though probably without intending it, through a listing for a screen protector that puts "iPhone SE" along side the iPhone and the iPhone 7.

2020 iPhone SE is the name we can finally settle on

2020 iPhone SE is the name we can finally settle on

Apple is still pushing through its product launches, unsurprisingly, though that doesn't really speak for how much inventory it will have at that time. With the new iPad Pros out of the way and the next iPhones still months in the making, Apple fans are looking to the iPhone 9 or iPhones SE 2 for the next big affordable thing. That name has always been surrounded by confusion and contention but it seems that there is finally a third option that sort of makes sense.

Apple AirTags tracking tags leaked in Apple’s own video

Apple AirTags tracking tags leaked in Apple’s own video

Apple may not have officially announced the AirTags trackers, but that didn't stop the well-discussed "secret" tags from being inadvertently mentioned in an Apple Support video. The Tile-rivaling tracking tags are expected to launch this year, and bring Find My iPhone-style location services to other items frequently lost, such as keys, bikes, and bags.

Apple waives 30% cut from video subscription apps

Apple waives 30% cut from video subscription apps

More and more people are turning to digital videos, be it streaming, rental, or outright purchase, during these times of being copped up indoors. That is naturally a prime opportunity for distributors and services to advertise certain features, including free offers, and get more subscribers. Those don't necessarily translate to an exponential rise in profits, especially if they have to pay some "tax" to platform owners like Google and Apple. Almost out of the blue, Apple is now relaxing its much-criticized 30% cut from certain video apps, allowing those apps to keep 100% of the subscriptions, at least for now.
