2020 iPhone could have a slightly larger battery from small internal change

2020 iPhone could have a slightly larger battery from small internal change

Despite having a probably more energy-efficient mobile operating system, iPhone owners have been begging Apple for a larger battery. Those prayers have been answered, to some extent, when Apple launched the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Of course, the need for more hours of battery life never ends and Apple may be giving next year's iPhones just a wee bit more battery not by enlarging the iPhone yet again but by shrinking at least one part inside.

New Apple Mac Pro finally gets an official order date

Apple's long-anticipated new Mac Pro - along with the Pro Display XDR - has finally got an order date, with the Cupertino company quietly notifying would-be buyers when they can open their wallet. Announced earlier this year, the new Mac Pro brought a marked change in design from its predecessor, stepping away from the controversial "trash can" aesthetic.

2021 iPhone: Forget USB-C, it could have no ports at all

2021 iPhone: Forget USB-C, it could have no ports at all

Despite the fact that we're still months out from release, we've already heard plenty of rumors about next year's iPhones. Strangely enough, we've been hearing rumors about 2021's iPhones as well, nearly two years before Apple will release them. Today, a famed Apple analyst is making a pretty bold prediction about Apple's 2021 iPhone, claiming that Apple may opt to forgo the charging port on it entirely.

Apple Clips updated with Memoji, Animoji, Disney

Apple released a new version of their "Clips" app today, bringing with it a number of features that'll work on the newest round of iPhone and iPad devices. This newest version of the Clips app includes support for new languages - specifically right-to-left languages including Hebrew and Arabic. Clips will also bring seven new Mickey and Minnie Mouse stickers because Disney is the dominant media force on Earth here at the tail end of 2019.

iPhone 12 with Qualcomm in-display fingerprint scanner makes no sense

iPhone 12 with Qualcomm in-display fingerprint scanner makes no sense

Qualcomm just recently announced the evolution of its 3D ultrasonic fingerprint scanning technology and, truth be told, we did find it to be a huge step forward. 3D Sonic Max, as it is called, checks off almost all the complaints that real-world users had with it on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10, at least on the company's demo units. Unsurprisingly, hopes are running high that this new piece of tech would be adopted by more smartphone makers, including Apple. But while it's always within the realm of possibility for the 2020 iPhone to have it, it could be a huge step back as far as Apple is concerned.

BMW CarPlay integration now offered for free after backlash

BMW CarPlay integration now offered for free after backlash

New cad models these days are almost expected to have one form of integration with mobile ecosystems or another. That means either letting users hook up to a manufacturer's proprietary system or directly integrating Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Just because it's expected doesn't mean it has to come for free, which is the rather unpopular position BMW made a few months back. Now it's making a U-turn and will not charge owners of 2019 and 2020 models $80 a year just to use CarPlay in their cars.

Can you trust Amazon? Take knockoff Apple Watches for example

Can you trust Amazon? Take knockoff Apple Watches for example

A collection of cheap imitations of the original Apple Watch are currently posing on Amazon as a perfect alternative to the far more expensive alternative. Brands like YAMAY, Willful, Letsfit, SKYGRAND, and ANBES make little effort to hide the fact that they're not only using lookalike UI - in some cases, they're literally selling the same devices under different brand names. Scratch that - in quite a few cases... in a CONCERNING number of cases, companies appear to be selling the same product with different brand names for different prices.

MacBook butterfly keyboard lawsuit will proceed after all

MacBook butterfly keyboard lawsuit will proceed after all

Apple may have finally changed back (or changed forward) to a more familiar keyboard mechanism in its new MacBook Pro but that doesn't change the past one bit. It is also not enough, apparently, to save the company from having to fight a class-action suit hurled against it over its previous "butterfly" keyboards. It tried to get that case dismissed but was shot down, effectively giving the green light to move the case forward in court. That is if it isn't settled out of it first.

Mini-LED may soon be the star of Apple’s product lineup

Mini-LED may soon be the star of Apple’s product lineup

It may not be long before we see Mini-LED displays make their way to Apple products. While we may not see the tech featured on iPhones anytime soon, one analyst thinks that Apple will look to outfit iPads and MacBooks with Mini-LED displays as early as next year. When that happens, it could be the start of a trend for Apple, which could begin using Mini-LED in as many as 4-6 products over the next two or three years.

2021 iPhone changes could be biggest in Apple’s history

2021 iPhone changes could be biggest in Apple’s history

Today a bit of JPMorgan analysis from Samik Chatterjee suggested 4x new iPhones were on their way for the year 2020 and 2021. These new devices will appear with three different screen sizes next year - then some major changes in under a year after that. There'll be one 5.4-inch model in 2020, two with 6.1-inch displays, and a larger iPhone with a 6.7-inch display. These devices will all - apparently - roll with 5G connectivity.
