iPhone XS Smart Battery Case leaked with tipped quick release

iPhone XS Smart Battery Case leaked with tipped quick release

Yesterday, reports of a watchOS icon seemingly confirming a new Smart Battery Case for iPhone began making the rounds. The Smart Battery Case, as many of Apple fans will likely remember, was a first-party battery case made primarily for the iPhone 6s but also compatible with the iPhone 6 and 7. The appearance of this icon suggested that Apple may finally be working on a new Smart Battery Case for modern iPhones after going three years between releases.

iPhone XR DxOMark score proves one is good enough

iPhone XR DxOMark score proves one is good enough

The iPhone XR is a bit of an odd beast. Although by no means inexpensive, it is considerably cheaper than the cheapest iPhone XS model. That said, it differs from the more expensive 2018 iPhones in ways that may not mean much for regular consumers. All except one: the camera. With a single camera, some might presume the iPhone XR will fail terribly in that department. DxOMark’s review, however, claims otherwise.

T-Mobile, Verizon eSIM support happening real soon

T-Mobile, Verizon eSIM support happening real soon

Apple’s support for dual SIM, dual standby (DSDS) on this year’s iPhone generation was a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it finally gave what some iPhone owners have been requesting for years. On the other than, its implementation is based on a normal, physical SIM and a digital eSIM. The latter requires carriers to support the feature and as of yesterday, only AT&T does in the US. That, however, is changing soon with both Verizon and T-Mobile following not far behind.

Apple Smart Battery Case for iPhone might be making a comeback

Apple Smart Battery Case for iPhone might be making a comeback

Though the list of Apple-made iPhone accessories is fairly short, one that manages to stand out is the Smart Battery Case. This case took on established brands like Mophie in the external power space when it launched for the iPhone 6s back in 2015, and though its design was a little strange, it got the job done well enough. Even though cases that offer an extra battery always seem to be in demand, Apple has never released a follow-up to its Smart Battery Case.

iPhone XR Clear Case released at Apple, at last

iPhone XR Clear Case released at Apple, at last

Apple finally released a clear case for the iPhone XR at their stores around the world and online. In the Apple Store online, the iPhone XR Clear Case doesn't look any different from the rest of the similarly-implemented cases for other phones, save that it fits the iPhone XR specifically. This clear case allows the iPhone XR's many color options to shine through, whereas previous other cases blocked the colors almost entirely, making said colors a moot point.

iPhone sale promos point toward the Next Big Thing

It's been a long time coming - the age of the iPhone discount. Since just a few years ago when we happened upon the first quarter in which the iPhone didn't sell better than it'd sold the same quarter the year before - the mood has been changing.

iPhone 5G will skip 2019

It looks like 2019 is going to be a big year with the roll out of mobile 5G. Many phone manufacturers will be scrambling to get 5G-capable devices on shelves throughout the year, but once again, we're hearing today that Apple may not be one of them. In fact, we might not see an iPhone capable of tapping into 5G networks until sometime in 2020.

Samsung tweets from iPhone to promote the Galaxy Note 9

Samsung tweets from iPhone to promote the Galaxy Note 9

Facepalm-worthy moments such as these aren’t exactly new or rare though, admittedly, they seem to happen more on the Android side of the digital divide than those from iOS. Still, every high-profile “clerical error” makes for a good chuckle, though probably at someone’s unfortunate expense. The latest entry into the book of social media bloopers is Samsung Nigeria’s tweet that exalted the “stunning cinematic experience” of the Galaxy Note 9 using an iPhone to say it.

Your iOS 12 iPhone is still safe: Don’t believe the hype

Your iOS 12 iPhone is still safe: Don’t believe the hype

If you're worrying about headlines that suggest iPhones and iPad have a 'serious problem' with security, don't believe the hype. The hype is based in truth, but the truth is that just one single company suggests they've broken in to an iPhone running iOS 12. I'm generally one to relay issues to smartphone users of all sorts - if a major issue is out there, I won't hesitate to report it. This is not one of those times - this is more of an anti-warning.

Google Fi compatibility check: what you’ll be missing out on

Google Fi compatibility check: what you’ll be missing out on

After a prematurely published embargo, Google has formally acknowledged that it was expanding its Project Fi, now officially called Google Fi, MVNO service to more smartphones. Shockingly, that even includes more recent iPhones. But while it has indeed embraced more Android phones and iPhones, it isn’t doing it without prejudice. Fortunately, Google has provided a simple online tool to show you what features you won’t get unless you opt for a phone that’s fully supported on Fi.
