Apple eyes Netflix and Amazon TV success with poached Sony talent

Apple eyes Netflix and Amazon TV success with poached Sony talent

Apple TV may have gone from hobby to Apple's barely-better-than-hobby, but the Cupertino firm has ambitious plans for homegrown content after co-opting a pair of Hollywood execs from Sony. The move comes after rival tech firms like Amazon and Netflix, each with their own streaming TV products, have seen great success with their own, self-funded content.

New Twitter update gets lighter and faster

New Twitter update gets lighter and faster

Twitter is getting a bit of a redesign across a number of different versions today. Though this redesign isn't anything drastic - you'll still know Twitter when see it, in other words - it does make quite a few quality of life improvements across the board. These new features and tweaks are coming to iOS, Android, TweetDeck, and Twitter Lite, though you may not see them right away.

Your iPhone could soon contain your entire medical history

Your iPhone could soon contain your entire medical history

While most tech companies are scrambling to climb the machine learning mountain, Apple has its sights on a different goal. Sure, it did just dip its fingers in the smart home speaker jar, but its interests apparently lie elsewhere. According to insiders, Apple is looking to turn your iPhone into a one-stop shop for your medical information, with the goal of making it easier for users to share their information with health care personnel without having to go through the hoops and potential errors involved in traditional health care systems.

iPad Pro 10.5 iFixit teardown unmasks an iPad Pro 12.9 Mini

iPad Pro 10.5 iFixit teardown unmasks an iPad Pro 12.9 Mini

Given their proximity in sizes, the new iPad Pro 10.5 is more often compared to last year’s iPad Pro 9.7. But, as they say, looks can be deceiving. In tearing down the new “Goldilocks” of iPad Pros, iFixit discovered that the 10.5-inch newcomer has, in fact, more in common with the larger 12.9-inch model from late 2015 when it comes to the internals. But rather than being a bad thing, in some ways it could be the start of a more standard, and only so slightly easier to repair, iPad Pro line.

iPhone 8 wireless charging is in says key Apple supplier

iPhone 8 wireless charging is in says key Apple supplier

The new iPhone will support wireless charging, one of Apple's key suppliers has prematurely confirmed, addressing one of the biggest criticisms of the best-selling smartphones to-date. The new iPhone 8, which - along with the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus - are expected to launch later this year, has unsurprisingly been the topic of copious rumor and speculation. However, much of it has centered on the new smartphone's display, its fingerprint sensor, and its camera.

Galaxy Note 8 announcement rush could cost Samsung again

Galaxy Note 8 announcement rush could cost Samsung again

While it might not have the same back and forth uncertainty as the iPhone 8's fingerprint scanner or lack thereof, the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is quickly becoming a topsy-turvy affair as well. First it was rumored to happen late August, just a wee bit before IFA 2017 in September. And then whispers of an IFA announcement have started to roll. Now we're back to August, but at a possibly even earlier date. All of this to try to beat the Apple iPhone 8 to market.

The big iPhone 8 Touch ID question may just have been answered

The big iPhone 8 Touch ID question may just have been answered

It's already a given that Apple wants to give the iPhone 8 the biggest possible display for 2017, but the jury is still out on where that leaves its fingerprint sensor. Getting rid of the home button has obvious benefits, but a rear-mounted Touch ID scanner is ergonomically questionable, while integrating it into the Retina display is technologically tricky. Now, another way for Apple to slim the new iPhone's bezels and maximize screen real-estate without sacrificing Touch ID has emerged, an alternative to baking the sensor into the display itself.

Google Pixel 2 takes on iPhone with Apple’s own chip designer

Google Pixel 2 takes on iPhone with Apple’s own chip designer

Google just hired Apple's processor designer for mobile products, and they've put him in charge of making their own Pixel SOC. Manu Gulati worked with companies like AMD and Broadcom before moving to Apple in 2009, leading as inventor on a number of key processor-related patents. This may mean that Google will follow in Apple's footsteps for the Pixel 2 or Pixel 3 (probably 3, at this point) - which could mean the axe for Qualcomm from Pixel devices.

iPad Pro 9.7 vs iPad Pro 10.5: is it worth the upgrade?

iPad Pro 9.7 vs iPad Pro 10.5: is it worth the upgrade?

Instead of consolidating its tablet lines, Apple just diversified it. Well, somewhat. We still don't know the ultimate fate of the iPad mini line, now believed to have been made irrelevant by the iPhone 7 Plus segment. The new non-Pro 9.7-inch iPad seems to combine both the original iPad and the iPad Air. And the iPad Pro 9.7, without a successor, has practically been displaced by its 10.5-inch sibling. With the fate of the smaller iPad Pro now in limbo, consumers might be wondering if its time to make an upgrade. We take a deeper look between the two more portable iPad Pros to give you that answer.

iPhone 8, 7s leaked front and back panels look legit

With the new iPad and new iOS 11 out of the way, attention is back on what is still expected to be Apple's greatest highlight this year: the new iPhone 8. And the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, of course. While almost all aspects of the smartphone, particularly the iPhone 8, has seemingly been cemented based on leaks, there are still a few variables lingering, especially around the display and fingerprint scanner. This new pair of leaked photos don't really address the latter but may have some disappointing info regarding the iPhone 8's screen.
