Can my phone be tracked?

Can my phone be tracked?

Absolutely yes, your smartphone can be tracked - the question we should be asking is: what can we do about it? Today we're going to run down several easy ways in which we can see our phone being tracked, first of all. Then we're going to shut down this tracking in a few easy steps. It's really not too big of a hassle, just a trade-off - location tracking lets us map where we're going, but in exchange, our phone has to know where we are.

This is without doubt the best Apple Watch accessory

This is without doubt the best Apple Watch accessory

This little Apple Watch stand turns the device into a vintage Apple Macintosh Classic. It doesn't really make the watch into a functional Macintosh Classic computer fully - it doesn't give the watch an 8 MHz Motorola 68000 processor or anything. But it does make the watch look like it's a display for the Mac Classic while it charges. That's what's most important in this case, anyway.

MacBook Pro battery retested as Consumer Reports tries Apple’s fix

Consumer Reports is re-testing battery life on the latest MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, after Apple released a software update intended to address wildly varying runtimes. The patch, which is being released to the macOS beta channel today and will eventually be included for all users of the software, focuses on a buried setting in Safari, the browser which Consumer Reports used for its controversial testing back in December. Back then, the organization found that despite Apple's claims of around 10 hours of battery life for the new notebooks, the MacBook Pro models it bought would sometimes deliver just a fraction of that.

Pokemon GO blocked from China release, missing out on population of 1.3b

It looks like Pokemon GO is going to lose a large chunk of potential players, as China has put a hold on the game's release for the time being. That means Pokemon GO won't be able to tap into the country of 1.3 billion people, at least not until it addresses some of China's concerns. Given the sheer number of people in China, Pokemon GO developer Niantic may be moved to do just that.

Cars, AI assistants, and mixed reality. Those seem to be the major thrusts of tech companies of late, and Apple is no exception.

Which phones can play FM radio?

Which phones can play FM radio?

A whole bunch of smartphones out on the market today have FM radio capabilities - but their owners don't know it.

FM Radio in a phone isn't currently a very sought-after feature, so - regardless of how often it's included in phones by default - it's just not spoken about. Today we're listing the whole lot of phone devices that can run FM Radio right out the box.

10.5-inch iPad in Q2 could minimize effect of dropping sales

The famed Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities has some interesting forecasts for the iPad line coming in a few months. Yes, there will be new iPad, perhaps a reassuring idea after Apple’s near silence on that front for months. However, they might not be as sensational as some might hope. Well, except perhaps for a new, third, and odd 10 to 10.5 inch model that will be joining the team, meant to be a high-end tablet that still manages to steer clear of iPad Pro territory.

iPhone hits 10 years, Tim Cook says “the best is yet to come”

Now 10 years later, the smartphone has become embedded in people’s pockets, hands, and lives. Almost ironically, the weeks leading to the iPhone’s 10th birthday were marked by the device’s first ever disappointing, though not disheartening, numbers. So the big question is, what’s next for the iconic handheld? According to CEO Tim Cook, “the best”.
