iPhone SE 2020 DxOmark score is on par with its price

For the past few months, the biggest threat to the Android smartphone market isn't any of the iPhone 10 models. The launch of the newest iPhone SE proved to be more successful than even Apple expected, combining iOS' best features with a price tag to die for. But while the iPhone SE 2020 proved to be "just right" for budget-conscious iPhone buyers, there might have been some lingering doubts about performance in one of the most popular uses of smartphones these days. DxOMark puts both front and back cameras of the smaller iPhone through the wringer to finally answer those questions.

iPhone 12 might not have a charger in the box according to Kuo

There has been a lot of speculation about Apple's new products and schedules that have been thrown into disarray thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. The show will go on, fortunately for Apple fans, but the company may be making a few changes to keep things from going overboard. That will mostly be due to the increasing prices of its high-end devices thanks to increasingly powerful components, like 5G modems in the iPhone 12. Apple's solution? Take out almost everything from the iPhone's box.

iPhone 12 rumor round-up, as we know so far

There is still time for the launch of iPhone 12 and its variants, a lot of them this time. Apple’s iPhone launch event may be pushed back (from regular September) by a month at least because of the prevailing pandemic but the phones are not expected to retail until the fall — no clarity on the definite time though. If the Cupertino tech giant sticks with the name scheme it followed last year – we are expecting the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro to be the two models, which will unveil with their own Max variants i.e. iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro Max sometime in October.

Apple Glass patent shows modular system for future hero tech

Apple's prospective plans for a "modular system for head-mounted device" were revealed in a newly-public patent posted to the USPTO. The United States Patent and Trademark Office showed this document with inventors Paul X Wang and Dinesh C Mathew, as first filed in April of the year 2019.

iPhone 12 price may be $100 less than earliest leaks

The lowest price for a new iPhone 12 was rumored several times over the past several weeks - and it's been pretty consistent. Prices ranged from $649 all the way up to over $1300 USD for iPhone 12, 12 Max, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max. Today a new rumor suggests that Apple won't be ALL IN on 5G connectivity with the iPhone 12, and will have at least one version of the lowest-end iPhone 12 with 4G LTE for a price lower than the previous lowest reported price.

iPhone 12 Pro is shaping up to be a true flagship

iPhone 12 Pro is shaping up to be a true flagship

Over the past several years, the smartphone market's definition of the word "flagship" has changed dramatically. Because of the rate of change and conservative ways in which the biggest names in smartphone brands advance their AAA phones, brands like OnePlus have been allowed to creep up and create "flagship killer" phones. Brands like Huawei, Xiaomi, and OPPO have captured massive amounts of new buyers over the past half-decade, as smartphone ownership saturates the earth and turnover becomes the name of the game. Here in 2020, Apple seems to have decided they're ready to remember what "flagship" truly means for a highest-end mobile device.

The best Mac hardware revealed this week wasn’t made by Apple

This week was light on the hardware reveals at Apple's WWDC 2020, due in a big way to our global pandemic and the fact that the conference was entirely virtual.

Since Apple's hardware reveals this week were light, there's a clear winner for most interesting new hardware for Apple product users. That is the OWC Envoy Express, the first-ever Thunderbolt 3 Certified Bus-powered Portable Storage Enclosure.

iOS 14 to extend AirPods life with optimized charging

iOS 14 to extend AirPods life with optimized charging

Concern or sometimes even obsession over battery life sometimes nurtures habits that ironically degrade battery capacity over time. While devices today are smart enough not to overcharge, some practices like keeping the battery at 100% for a long time will eventually kill the battery anyway. That's true for laptops and smartphones but it is also true for the tiny earbuds some wear day in and day out. That's why Apple is apparently rolling out in iOS 14 optimized charging to extend the longevity of its smallest smart products.
