New iPhone 12 clues show massive win for fans of retro design

If you've not purchased an iPhone since the iPhone 4 because you didn't like the look of all subsequent Apple phones, you're in luck. If the latest batch of rumors and image leaks are accurate, the iPhone 12 (in three distinct sizes) might be right up your alley. The iPhone 12 is rumored to roll with four different models in three significantly different sizes - the two middle models are right around the same size in your hand.

Apple Silicon GPU for ARM Macs could present some problems

Apple Silicon GPU for ARM Macs could present some problems

Apple's official move to its own processors in future Macs and MacBooks has been one of the most-talked topics in tech news for the past weeks even it has been long-rumored anyway. A victory for the ARM CPU architecture and a blow to Intel, Apple's Silicon will have repercussions for everyone involved in the Mac ecosystem in more ways than one. Some of them will be good and some will take time to be accepted. There will also be other with perhaps unseen or at least unsaid consequences, like how the new chips could drastically change the Mac's capabilities in more than just performance.

Gmail app finally gets support for a major iPadOS feature

Gmail app finally gets support for a major iPadOS feature

Apple has largely positioned its iPad Pro as a laptop replacement, something underscored by its launch of the Magic Keyboard with a hinge and trackpad. A key part of using the iPad Pro in lieu of a laptop is the ability to multitask, however, something that requires apps to actively support the iPadOS features that facilitate it. Gmail is finally counted among these offerings.

iPhone 12 Pro might not get that 120Hz display after all

iPhone 12 Pro might not get that 120Hz display after all

Apple is slowly blurring the lines that separate its devices and platforms. This year's iPhones, for example, may even look like miniature iPad Pros. That doesn't mean it will get the same features, of course, but there's still some discussion on what features the iPhone 12 may inherit from Apple's slates. As with the LIDAR camera, there is still no consensus on whether any of the iPhones will finally have a ProMotion display and the latest insider tip leans more on the side of "no".

Apple reportedly rushing suppliers to prevent iPhone 12 delays

Apple reportedly rushing suppliers to prevent iPhone 12 delays

There has been no shortage of rumors that this year's iPhones could be delayed by a few months. Some even paint a worst-case scenario of an early 2021 shipping date. Apple, of course, would have none of that and is reportedly pushing its supply chain partners to make up for lost time. Whether that will be enough to narrow the delay is just one question. Whether it will cause some lapses in quality or safety is perhaps the more important consideration.

New Apple iMac Geekbench leak teases exclusive Intel Core i9 CPU

New Apple iMac Geekbench leak teases exclusive Intel Core i9 CPU

An unannounced Apple iMac has appeared in leaked Geekbench benchmarks indicating that not only is one on the horizon, but that it'll potentially be running an exclusive Intel Core i9-10910 CPU. Rumors earlier this year suggested that Apple is working on a new iMac model, stoking anticipation that it may have been on the WWDC 2020 roster -- hope that didn't ultimately pan out.

iPhone as a desktop running macOS is allegedly being worked on

For years, Apple's mobile and desktop worlds have been distinct and separate islands of their own. Lately, however, the company has been working to bridge the two together, like running iOS apps on Macs with Catalyst. It turns out that Apple's newly revealed ARM-based Silicon processor maybe smashing those two worlds together in more ways than one. A new leak has surfaced pointing to the almost dreamy possibility of an iPhone running on an Apple Silicon running macOS, possibly when connected to an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Sign in with Apple has hidden problems says AnyList app dev

The deadline for affected apps to implement Apple's new single sign-on or SSO experience has now passed. Announced mid-2019, the system was praised for its privacy-focused implementation compared to what the likes of Facebook and Google have been offering on apps and services for years. While few will contest Apple's intentions and the security of its system, there are some who are still on the fence about it. In fact, one app will be throwing out all third-party logins because of the problems that Apple won't tell you about Sign in with Apple.

Apple Arcade contracts reportedly being canceled for not being engaging enough

Apple Arcade contracts reportedly being canceled for not being engaging enough

When Apple launched its Arcade service last year, it was poised to revolutionize mobile gaming if not digital gaming in general. It was praised for not trying to milk gamers with IAPs and ads and its subscription-based model promised to give developers and publishers a steadier source of revenue. It might have been too early to celebrate, however, as news of some significant changes underfoot seem to suggest that Apple Arcade isn't yet the profitable gaming service Apple envisioned it to be.

Apple chip in Mac transition kit makes the Surface Pro X look bad

Apple chip in Mac transition kit makes the Surface Pro X look bad

Apple's decision to ditch Intel in the long run for its own ARM-based silicon was naturally received with mixed reactions and opinions. While the benefits on power efficiency are almost unquestioned, there have naturally been concerns over performance, especially when trying to support Mac software not yet built for the new chips. There will naturally be a need for some sort of CPU emulation, a piece of software formally known as Rosetta. Emulation incurs some performance penalty but if "accidental" benchmarks are any indication, Mac users might have very little to worry about.

iPad Mini and bigger iPad tipped with faster chargers

iPad Mini and bigger iPad tipped with faster chargers

New versions of the longest lasting tablet brand in the world are rumored to appear in stores in the near future. As noted by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple's likely set to release a new 10.8-inch iPad in the second half of the year 2020. That'd be anywhere from June to December - and more likely earlier than later. It's not yet known if this will be an "iPad Air" model or not. It's possible this would be a replacement for the current 10.2-inch iPad (no Air, Mini, or Pro).
