iPhone 13 Pro Max leak shows big changes coming

Just like the iPad Pro that was announced last month, this year's iPhone generation is expected to also get some massive changes. No, it won't be getting a Mini LED screen, which would be a step back from its OLED. Instead, the iPhone 13 has consistently been tipped to have a smaller notch, which means more room for the screen itself.

Apple removed Shadow game streaming app to block Microsoft xCloud

Apple has very strict app store policies that it credits as the reason that it is able to offer high-quality and safe experiences on iOS. Those policies, however, have also been criticized by developers are self-serving, inconsistent, and monopolistic, traits that Epic Games is using against the iPhone maker in its high-profile lawsuit.

Epic vs Apple court battle reveals the true price of free PC games

Ever since its inception, the Epic Games Store has given away free games frequently as a way of enticing PC gamers to create accounts. The hope, of course, is that the people who show up for the free games stick around and spend money on the Epic Games Store later, but of course, these promos cost Epic a fair amount of cash since developers need to be reimbursed for the copies that are claimed. If you've ever wondered how much Epic is paying for these free games, newly-surfaced court documents are shedding some light on just that today.

New iPad mini still coming this year, foldable iPhone in 2023

The iPad mini was noticeably absent during Apple's big event last month. That's not exactly surprising as the company seemed to focus more on its more powerful products, particularly the iPad Pros with Apple M1 silicon. That doesn't exactly mean that the iPad mini that has been appearing in rumors since the start of the year will be a no-show. Instead, Ming-Chi Kuo says that the smaller slate has just been delayed to sometime later this year.
