Samsung extends Euro smartphone lead as iPhone share shrinks

The smartphone wars rage ever on, and today, we're getting a better idea of who's on top when it comes to European markets. Analytic firm Canalys has reported on the state of the European phone market at the end of Q2 2019, with Samsung emerging as the quarter's clear winner. Xiaomi was another company who enjoyed a surge in sales over the quarter, at the expense of other companies like Apple and Huawei.

iPad Pros could outdo Samsung with triple camera setup

iPad Pros could outdo Samsung with triple camera setup

Samsung may have kicked off a new tablet trend but Apple will be the one to take it to the next level. The Galaxy Tab S6 launched with what could be the first dual camera system on a tablet but Apple's new iPads could steal the attention away in two months. Not only will the regular iPads gain two cameras on their backs, according to sources the iPad iPad Pros will actually have three sensors. Whether that makes sense or not will largely depend on how Apple will spin the rumored feature.

Apple Contacts app leave iPhones and iPads vulnerable to hacking

Apple Contacts app leave iPhones and iPads vulnerable to hacking

Apple runs a very tight ship and, like it or not, iOS is considered one of the most secure platforms in the mainstream consumer market. That's not to say it has no security holes and some that get through the cracks have been around for years. One such hole would let an attacker "search" for something in the Contacts app to execute arbitrary code and researchers are pointing to Apple's oversight as the reason this bug has existed for four years.

What banks can learn from Apple Card

What banks can learn from Apple Card

Live and breathe Apple? Here’s the latest piece of Apple tech available this month for you to flex. It’s the Apple Card – except it doesn’t flex. It’s a solid sheet of sturdy titanium that sits in your wallet with the rest of your cards. Launching Apple’s venture into the banking and finance industry, Apple Card works like Apple Pay in the form of a card. The card comes in handy at cashiers and checkouts that don’t accept mobile payment. Created with the help of Goldman Sachs and powered by Mastercard, Apple’s new venture has plenty of pedigree and should be accepted at just about any cashier.

Apple’s next big thing is in the mind

Apple’s next big thing is in the mind

Apple is ramping up to a revolution in the way you live your life. Right now the most ironic paradox in most people's lives is the complete lack of motivation they feel for keeping their body healthy. I know I feel that way - it seems like a lot of work. I've got a hard enough time trying to act on things I know are right, I've got ADHD, now you want me to remember that going for a bike ride makes me feel good the rest of the day? Madness!

Apple MFI Certified iPhone car charger from Satechi delivers 72W USB-C action

Apple MFI Certified iPhone car charger from Satechi delivers 72W USB-C action

I don't often write about car chargers for smartphones, largely because the technology just... doesn't change all that often. Since the last time I wrote about a car charger, a significant amount's changed - enough that it makes sense to point out a product from a brand that I've come to trust over the past half-decade via their Apple MFI Certifications, top-notch industrial design, and long-lasting materials.

Apple makes DIY iPhone repair a hassle again, surprising no one [Update]

When it comes to repairing an iPhone, Apple hasn't exactly been shy about doing everything it can to drive people away from independent shops. The company has tried to make third-party or DIY repair difficult for end users, preferring that they take their iPhones to an Apple Store for repair instead. The latest move against DIY repair sees Apple hiding health data about replaced batteries - even if the battery you're using as a replacement is an official Apple one.

Apple Card release date is today for some users

One of the more surprising reveals from Apple in recent memory came back in March, when the company got up on stage at one of its press conferences and announced that it's getting into the personal finance game. Apple revealed that it had partnered with Goldman Sachs to offer the Apple Card - a credit card designed to work with Apple Pay and Wallet.

I was wrong: iMessage is Android’s problem

I was wrong: iMessage is Android’s problem

Back in the year 2016 I wrote an article about iMessage and how Android users shouldn't make a big fuss about connectivity. Back then, there were some major issues between users when one used iMessage and the other used a service like Google Voice. You'd get a message, but you wouldn't get a photo. You wouldn't get to use FaceTime, and your life would be a mess. But it wasn't an Android issue - or so I'd decided.
