How to present an iPhone Pro

How to present an iPhone Pro

In 2015, Apple introduced the iPad Pro - a device that they intended the public to see as an alternative to the oft-underutilized power of the notebook. Why have something more powerful when you're only going to do a few things? On that note, why use a notebook and limit the number of apps you can use when iOS has one of the most explosively innovative app stores in the world right this minute? In the year 2017, on the 10th anniversary of the iPhone (originally introduced in the year 2007), I'd like to imagine Apple will release the iPhone Pro.

Apple recovered two thirds of e-waste collected last year

With new phones, tablets, and laptops coming out all the time, we often upgrade our devices well before we need to. Those devices will get sold, or given to other people, but at some point, they will hit their end of life. And regardless of whether the device just became too old to be useful, or it suffered a catastrophic death, it has to go somewhere. And simply throwing it in the trash isn't a good option.

A new Nexus 7 Android tablet to beat your iPad

A new Nexus 7 Android tablet to beat your iPad

While the prospect of creating a piece of hardware that'd supplant the since-the-beginning biggest tablet ever iPad, Google's next device might be able to do the trick. Google is currently placing itself in a position in which it becomes more singular. The Google Play suite of apps has adopted a more visually standard look. Google's Play return program has become more active in the recent past. But what's that got to do with a tablet? Could Google finally be making a play for the space they've never dominated with a device that's just as powerful as the opposition? If the past couple generations of Nexus device are any indication, Google's in a prime position to finally make the real anti-iPad.

Whoops! WhatsApp isn’t all encrypted

Whoops! WhatsApp isn’t all encrypted

Wait just a second here - just yesterday WhatsApp announced they were completely encrypted, end-to-end, right? Apparently not. While messages and phone call content are, indeed, encrypted, some of the details surrounding these bits of communication are not. As it turns out, a deeper look at the terms and conditions included in this latest update for WhatsApp includes mention of what's not going to be hidden - and might indeed never be hidden should WhatsApp be called upon to share them with a legally-bound 3rd-party group.

Apple may soon let you hide stock apps on your iPhone and iPad

Apple may soon let you hide stock apps on your iPhone and iPad

I've got an iPhone, and if you swipe all the way to the right on my home screen, you'll find an assortment of icons that I never touch. These are apps like Stocks, Watch, and Wallet. I don't have any desire to use any of these, and yet they remain. If I could get rid of them, I would. And soon, I just may be able to do that.

iPad Pro 9.7 teardown says do NOT do this yourself

iPad Pro 9.7 teardown says do NOT do this yourself

The first thing you're going to want to know with a brand new iPad Pro 9.7-inch teardown is - should I tear mine down? Is it easy? Absolutely not. Over at iFixit they suggest that you'll have a "nail-biting 30-minute process of heating, blind prying, and suctioning" to make it begin to open. Don't do that. Leave it to the professionals. You're going to break it. We'd certainly break it, and not because we haven't tried tearing down electronics before.

TrackR app tracks your iPad, iPhone with Crowd GPS

TrackR app tracks your iPad, iPhone with Crowd GPS

Without the need of an internet connection, the TrackR Tablet app is able to track down your tablet and make it ring. Why would I want to do that, you might ask? Why not just do the same sort of thing with Apple's own iCloud-based Find my iPhone or iPad? Because the TrackR system works with Crowd GPS, and does not require that your tablet be connected to the internet to be found. That's unique - and quite helpful when you're in a jam.
