Mac Pros might be a more expensive as Apple tariff relief gets denied

Mac Pros might be a more expensive as Apple tariff relief gets denied

The US government's blacklists and tariffs were meant to send a strong statement to China and pressure the latter in its ongoing trade and political spat. Unfortunately, it won't just be the Chinese economy that will get affected as even the US tech market will soon feel the aftermath. The Mac Pros, already one of the more expensive computers in the market, might become even pricier now that Apple will have to pay 25% more for certain parts coming from China.

iPhone 12 may borrow a fancy feature from Razer Phone

iPhone 12 may borrow a fancy feature from Razer Phone

Documents pointing toward Apple's use of LED lights on an iPhone suggest that Apple may take a page out of gaming company Razer's playbook for smartphones. True, technically the iPhone had a glowing Apple logo well before Razer Phone 2, but imagine Razer's surprise when they awake one morning in the near future to find one of the biggest, most successful companies in the world using that same smartphone feature? And for real, this time, not just in a DIY mod sort of sense.

Spotify Siri integration finally enters beta in iOS 13

Spotify Siri integration finally enters beta in iOS 13

It's been a long time coming, but it looks like Spotify is finally going to gain Siri integration in iOS 13. Apple indicated as much when it opened up the SiriKit framework to third-party app makers earlier in the summer, and it seems that Spotify has wasted little time in beginning to work on Siri integration. The feature has been added in Spotify's latest beta version, which suggests that an official release isn't that far off.

iFixit iPad 7 teardown is a blast from the past

iFixit iPad 7 teardown is a blast from the past

It's been a big week for iFixit teardowns. First, we saw the company teardown the iPhone 11 after last week's look inside the iPhone 11 Pro. That was followed by a teardown of the Nintendo Switch Lite, but today we're back to looking at Apple devices. iFixit has delivered a new teardown of the iPad 7, and it's probably going to be very familiar to those who own a 6th generation iPad.

Apple Watch 5 40mm battery bodes well for repairs and safety

Apple Watch 5 40mm battery bodes well for repairs and safety

The larger 44 mm series 5 Apple Watch may have not changed that much from its predecessor but, almost ironically, the smaller 40 mm model has a better story to tell. While the innards remain the same, the battery has changed considerably in more than appearance. While the exact reason and effects are still officially unknown, the new aluminum-encased battery in the smaller Apple Watch 5 could be good news for repairing the advanced wearable or at least keeping its safe.

macOS Catalina might be out as early as next week

macOS Catalina might be out as early as next week

iOS 13 already rolled out but, unlike the betas and Apple's announcements, it launched alone. The much-hyped iPadOS came a few days later but the matching macOS Catalina, a.k.a. macOS 10.15 was still nowhere in sight. Apple said it would start rolling out some time in October but didn't give a date users could pin on their calendar. But thanks to Apple's own Danish site, early adopters can look forward to next week to start their journey towards the latest macOS release.

iOS 13 Optimized Battery Charging and why Android is next

iOS 13 Optimized Battery Charging and why Android is next

With the release of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro with iOS 13 came a new feature called Optimized Battery Charging. This feature limits the charge your iPhone battery can take at a time - with some intelligent caveats - so that your iPhone battery will last as long as possible. Android users have had similar solutions before, but never like this.

iPhone 11 with iOS 13.1 warns users about third-party screen repairs

iPhone 11 with iOS 13.1 warns users about third-party screen repairs

Like many large manufacturers, Apple has never been a fan of people repairing its products, especially iPhones, on their own. Whether it's to protect their reputation, cover their legal bases, or simply create another source of revenue, Apple has always discouraged third-party repairs and, worse, non-genuine replacement parts but it can't exactly crack down on those with lawsuits. What it is doing, in this latest case, is to make sure iPhone 11 owners are always reminded they aren't using sanctioned Apple services or parts like screens.

Apple Music is now a better rival to Android music apps

Apple Music is now a better rival to Android music apps

There was a point in time when Apple seemed to be completely ignoring Android users completely. Its first Android app, after all, threw shade at the rival platform by assisting users to migrate to iOS. But in order to truly spread its Apple Music service, it needed to also cater to the other half of the mobile world. That finally happened with the Apple Music Android app which, after a lackluster first launch, may now be considered a proper competitor on Android.
