If you JUST purchased an iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro this year, you might want to turn away and pretend the iPhone 13 doesn't exist, as it'll be JUST different enough that you'll wish you'd waited.

iPhone 13 always-on display could finally happen this year

iPhone 13 always-on display could finally happen this year

Every year brings rumors and hopes of new iPhone features that never come. Last year, it was the iPad Pro ProMotion display tech that would have brought a 120Hz refresh rate to iPhones. That never happened with the iPhone 12, but that hasn't dashed hopes it will still come. The iPhone 13 could finally get that kind of screen, but the technology that will enable it could also bring a wanted but an also contentious feature, an always-on display system similar to the Apple Watch.

The early iPhone 13 leaks may have been a bit too touchy

Revelations this week suggest we're going to see an iPhone 13 this year without features reported in the earliest of smartphone leaks.

At that time, it no longer seems likely that the device will have any finger-based login system - no Touch ID as such.

Pocket Casts acquired by WordPress owner Automattic: What will change?

The people that own WordPress just acquired Pocket Casts. In a world where popular, widely used, and excellent apps and companies are acquired and destroyed all the time, this acquisition actually seems like a best-case scenario. Given the relatively reasonable and decidedly non-destructive nature of the company since inception, it seems likely Automattic won't take a knife to Pocket Casts in any major way after acquisition is complete.

Xiaomi becomes world’s second-biggest smartphone vendor in Q2 2021

The past 18 months have been somewhat unstable for the smartphone market, especially if you take into account the market shares. In addition to the chaos that the COVID-19 pandemic brought to the whole world, Huawei's ongoing US sanctions also caused a reshuffling among the world's top smartphone makers. The first quarter of 2021 saw Huawei absent from the top five for the first time in years. Now Xiaomi has taken its spot in the second quarter, becoming the world's number two smartphone maker for the first time in its history.
