Apple AirTags tracking tags leaked in Apple’s own video

Apple may not have officially announced the AirTags trackers, but that didn't stop the well-discussed "secret" tags from being inadvertently mentioned in an Apple Support video. The Tile-rivaling tracking tags are expected to launch this year, and bring Find My iPhone-style location services to other items frequently lost, such as keys, bikes, and bags.

FaceTime broken with new iPhone update

FaceTime broken with new iPhone update

The latest update to iPhone and iPad devices seems to have broken a crucial component of the video chat system FaceTime. Reports have shown the update to iOS 13.4 for iPhone and iPad caused an issue with FaceTime audio and video calls. The bit that doesn't work seems to be the connection between these newly-updated devices and those still running iOS 9.3.5 or iOS 9.3.6 - the newest software some older devices can get.

Zoom becomes a household name – and that’s a problem

Zoom becomes a household name – and that’s a problem

The video chat system Zoom wasn't prepared for the popularity it's facing here in the spring of 2020. Much like a startup group attempting to create a new product with a crowdfunding campaign, Zoom is finding that their own popularity might be more than they can handle.

iPhone with Touch ID, Express Transit support seen in iOS 13.4.5 beta

iPhone with Touch ID, Express Transit support seen in iOS 13.4.5 beta

The next affordable iPhone was curiously absent from Apple's latest big announcement and it was probably for the best. The new iPad Pro would have easily hogged the spotlight, pushing the iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9, whatever its name will be, into the background. Its time will surely come and it could actually be around the corner. And if this new evidence coming from iOS 13.4.5 is any hint, it could pack quite a nice set of features despite its aged design.

Apple Watch kid mode will include modified Activity tracking rings

For all the Apple Watch's popularity, the company hasn't made any effort to appeal to a wider audience, specifically kids. That doesn't stop the young ones from wanting an Apple Watch, of course, but the systems Apple has built up around the wearable aren't exactly conducive to that use case. That may finally be changing when iOS 14 comes around along with a watchOS 7 with a few new features designed to address exactly that.

Why your groceries are late: Instacart strike is still on

Why your groceries are late: Instacart strike is still on

Last week we reported on a strike being organized by the Gig Workers Collective with Instacart Shoppers. Over the weekend, Instacart indicated they'd be updating health and safety measures. Instacart did not reply directly to the strike announcement, but the timing of their announcement would seem to be done in order to avoid the strike - at least in part. Unfortunate for the Instacart business, their response was not enough to quell the demands of the Gig Workers Collective and/or Instacart Shoppers, and the strike is still on.

The game Monument Valley 2 usually costs around $5 USD, and it's been selling for that price since launch several years ago.
