Sign in with Apple has hidden problems says AnyList app dev

The deadline for affected apps to implement Apple's new single sign-on or SSO experience has now passed. Announced mid-2019, the system was praised for its privacy-focused implementation compared to what the likes of Facebook and Google have been offering on apps and services for years.

In fact, one app will be throwing out all third-party logins because of the problems that Apple won't tell you about Sign in with Apple.

iPhone SE 2020 DxOmark score is on par with its price

For the past few months, the biggest threat to the Android smartphone market isn't any of the iPhone 10 models. The launch of the newest iPhone SE proved to be more successful than even Apple expected, combining iOS' best features with a price tag to die for.

iPhone 12 rumor round-up, as we know so far

There is still time for the launch of iPhone 12 and its variants, a lot of them this time.
