iPhone 13 third-party screen repairs confirmed to break Face ID [UPDATE]

iPhone 13 third-party screen repairs confirmed to break Face ID [UPDATE]

The smartphone industry, in general, has never looked kindly on third-party repair services, let alone replacement components that were sourced outside of companies' supply chains. Reasons for discouraging or even penalizing unauthorized repairs range from protecting company secrets to protecting the company's image. Apple has been one of the most notorious opponents of the "right to repair" movement, and its latest unofficial policy involving iPhone 13 screens is unsurprisingly irking the likes of iFixit because of the underhanded strategy to kill the DIY repair market.

OWC Mercury Pro U.2 Dual uses NVMe and Thunderbolt for over 5x SSD speed

Apple’s iPhone sideloading argument has some big holes

Apple’s iPhone sideloading argument has some big holes

In recent years, Apple has painted itself as a staunch defender of people's security and privacy. It has taken that hardline stance, even in the face of public opinion often tied to the investigation of heinous crimes that involved the use of an iPhone. The company also likes to highlight its track record in keeping its App Store a safe place for users, even when that is built on what some have alleged to be anticompetitive and monopolistic business practices. On a technical level, a key element in its armor is the inability of iPhone and iPad owners to install apps outside the Apple App Store, ironically a feature that could actually reveal how weak iOS' security framework might be.

Apple AirPods (3rd generation) Review

iPhone 13 shortage prompts drastic Apple fix insiders claim

iPhone 13 shortage prompts drastic Apple fix insiders claim

As many of us are already aware, Apple launched the iPhone 13 lineup toward the end of September. There were a lot of questions surrounding this launch, in large part because we're currently in the middle of a global semiconductor shortage that has put the squeeze on nearly every company that manufactures consumer electronic devices. Apple, however, apparently had a contingency plan in place should the shortage affect iPhone production: just borrow the components needed from iPads.

iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, HMD: Time to save up for 2022

In the year 2022 is expected that Apple, Sony, and Meta will launch significant HMD devices. This is a head-mounted display (HMD), and there's a decent chance it'll be the next sort of device that'll be above-and-beyond desirable by the average consumer.

Pixel 6 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro: How do they compare

The flagship phone tussle is usually the fiercest and a subject of concern for most people willing to spend on state-of-the-art technology, design, camera tricks and performance. Two stalwarts of most concern of late are the iPhone 13 Pro and the Pixel 6 Pro, which are both arguably the two of the best phones to release this year (save for the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which we have deliberately left out in this comparison).
