watchOS 6 will let Apple Watch owners delete built-in apps

watchOS 6 will let Apple Watch owners delete built-in apps

Pre-installed apps, a.k.a bloatware, is one of the banes of smartphone life. Given its tight control over the out of the box experience, Apple devices are relatively free of "value-added apps" from most OEMs or carriers. That said, Apple does ship with a few utility apps that not all users may find value in. That's true even for Apple Watches but that will soon change when watchOS 6 is released, allowing users to remove some but not all built-in Apple Watch apps.

iOS 13 Beta update for iPhone bypasses dev restriction

Earlier today the latest update for iPhone developers, iOS 13 Beta 2, was released by Apple. This update would normally be available to Developers only, on a normal day. But today is not a normal day, because there's a bit of a trick on your iPhone today that'll allow anyone to download the developer-aimed update, whether or not they're an official dev.

My Android and iPhone had the same problem: Lint!

My Android and iPhone had the same problem: Lint!

So you've got a smartphone with a USB-C power cord that doesn't seem to work as well as it did when it was new. You've tried different cords, you've tried different outlets, you've tried different chargers. You've even gone in to your mobile phone carrier to see what they could do, and they just said "shoot, I don't know, maybe it's broken." Your phone is not broken, and it's quite likely your cord isn't broken. They're just dirty.

Apple’s 2020 iPhone: 5G, screen sizes, and first signs of a huge change

Apple’s 2020 iPhone: 5G, screen sizes, and first signs of a huge change

Two out of three of Apple's 2020 iPhone range will support 5G, according to analyst predictions, though it may not be another few years before the Cupertino company really shakes up the high-speed smartphone space. While Apple is yet to announce its 2019 iPhone line-up, something expected to happen in a few months time, no small amount of attention is already being paid to its replacement next year.

Hot Wheels ID x Apple Store is the Tickle Me Elmo of 2019

Hot Wheels ID x Apple Store is the Tickle Me Elmo of 2019

I can't say for sure - because nobody knows for sure - but I'm calling it right now: Hot Wheels ID just stole Christmas. Using a bit of the magic summoned by the Apple x Anki Overdrive remote control car toy collaboration and some established-brand PR power - plus some features over which kids will likely flip their lid - Hot Wheels ID just struck gold. Again, I'm just making some informed guesses here - but take a look and see what you think.

2019 iPhone cases will highlight what Apple will try to hide

2019 iPhone cases will highlight what Apple will try to hide

It seems that square camera bumps are in. At least if you ask Apple and Google. Although Huawei can perhaps be credited/blameed for starting that trend but few probably expected the two biggest tech companies to follow. And even fewer probably expected both Apple and even Google would put the unusual design on the corner. And yet that is exactly what will happen in a few months though Apple is believed to use some magic to make those two to three cameras nearly invisible. Unfortunately, case makers will put the focus back on them instead.

The new Mac Pro isn’t even here yet, but Logic Pro X is ready

Apple's potent new Mac Pro isn't even on shelves yet, but the company can't help tease us with updates for some of the apps that'll make most use of the speedy workstation. Logic Pro X is among the first to get a preemptive Mac Pro update, as Apple sets out some of the ways software can be optimized to make the most of the new hardware.

Seven new macOS ‘portable personal computers’ just appeared

Seven new macOS ‘portable personal computers’ just appeared

This week the folks at the Eurasian Economic Commission database posted several new Mac models previously undisclosed to the public. These model numbers might not necessarily mean a whole lot to the lay person on their own, but in the context of previous Apple hardware, they're telling. In the mix were all of the following: A2141, A2147, A2158, A2159, A2179, A2182, and A2251.

Google’s Pixel 4 strategy just made Apple the copycat

Google’s Pixel 4 strategy just made Apple the copycat

For the past several days, the Google Pixel 4 seemed to leak one tiny detail every few hours. The earliest major leak seemed to be a set of 3D renders of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, in part of their glory (not all their glory, as the design details didn't seem complete). That leak looked really, really familiar - especially when compared to the also-leaked hardware designs of what's assumed to be the iPhone 11. With neither phone acknowledged as existing, who was the copycat?
