iFixit iPhone 11 Pro teardown developing: Battery answers and new questions

Today the folks at iFixit picked up an iPhone 11 Pro in Midnight Green and took it took the teardown bench.

Pair your Xbox One and PS4 controller to iPhone with iOS 13: Here’s how

There's been so much news about Apple lately that one new feature in iOS 13 may have been overlooked by the larger Apple user base. With the new operating system comes new functionality for a wider range of Bluetooth controllers. This is Apple making good on a promise it made earlier in the year to expand Bluetooth functionality within iOS 13, and it's good news for anyone who plays games on console.

Apple Watch Series 5 battery life is the real deal

Apple Watch Series 5 battery life is the real deal

I've spent the past week with the Apple Watch Series 5 on my wrist, and while it's still a little too early for a full review, I've definitely come to appreciate some of the headline features. The always-on display addresses one of the lingering criticisms of the smartwatch, both from owners and would-be wearers, that you couldn't see the time or other information without waking the Apple Watch first. Apple fixes that, and it does it in a clever way.

Apple Arcade goes live for all: Here’s what you need to know

Apple Arcade goes live for all: Here’s what you need to know

For years now, mobile games have been in something of a strange spot. Many mobile games survive by being free-to-play titles packed with microtransactions (or, more rarely, advertisements), and games that charge upfront tend to find a lower level of success than their free-to-play counterparts. Apple is looking to change the way we pay for mobile games with the launch of Apple Arcade, which has gone live alongside the release of iOS 13.

The Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro is living up to expectations

The Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro is living up to expectations

I'll admit it, I was a little bit obsessed with the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro when Apple announced it last week. It still feels like an atypical color for Apple to pick, not quite as serious as Space Gray or Silver, but neither as colorful as some of the iPhone 11's finishes. Of course, it's not only the color of the case that sticks out.

Tim Cook’s Android selfie snapper gives Twitter a laugh on iPhone 11 release day

Today Apple took what might've been a sort of PR flub into an opportunity to sell another iPhone. Today is the release date for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, so CEO Tim Cook and retail chief Deirdre O'Brien headed to the most extravagant Apple Store in the world. That's the newly-remodeled Manhattan Fifth Avenue Store, where a crowd did, indeed, gather for the event.

Apple Find My apps hidden Items tab reinforce Tag rumors

Apple Find My apps hidden Items tab reinforce Tag rumors

At its iPhone event last week, there was one particular rumor that Apple didn't bring to life. The company was believed to be working on a product that will rival the popular Tile tracker but that was nowhere to be seen. It might, however, still be on the table and might just be a matter of time before it gets launched. Because according to a new screenshot and text from Apple's Find My app, all the pieces are already in place for its debut.

Apple’s latest work on AR glasses

Apple’s latest work on AR glasses

A USPTO patent application was made public today as filed by Apple back in March of 2019 for a so-called "Display Device." This device is also described in the patent as "an augmented reality headset." The details of this patent - the drawings, the methods - aren't nearly as important as the patent's filing details. Let's take a peek at where Apple's at when it comes to working with augmented reality holograms in a pair of smart glasses.

iPhone 11 Pro Max teardown reveals larger battery, Xcode shows RAM size

iPhone 11 Pro Max teardown reveals larger battery, Xcode shows RAM size

Where Android phone makers love to flaunt specs and figures, Apple has traditionally been more secretive about the technical aspects of its iPhones. It prefers to talk in hours of battery life or how much faster its processor is compared to the previous generation. As such, it's often up to sleuths and repair technicians to find those out, like these iPhone 11 Pro Max details coming courtesy of third-party sources.

All iPhone 11 use Intel LTE modems, no Qualcomm yet in insight

All iPhone 11 use Intel LTE modems, no Qualcomm yet in insight

Apple has a rather complicated relationship with its suppliers. In order to prevent a single company from strong-arming it into some deal, Apple plays the field by using two suppliers for key components, at least those that it can't make itself. That rather messy situation reached its height during the Apple v. Qualcomm lawsuit, forcing Apple to favor Intel's LTE modems. It seems that has continued to this year's iPhone 11 generation and while it might change next year, Apple might still have the last laugh.
