What if Pokemon GO suddenly ended?

What if Pokemon GO suddenly ended?

What would you do if Niantic closed their doors tomorrow, and there was no more Pokemon GO? That's a question I had to ask a friend recently when they voiced concerns that Pokemon GO used to be fun, but more recently felt more like an obligation.

iPhone 11 Pro Max cameras fall behind Xiaomi Mi CC9, Huawei Mate 30 Pro

The smartphone market has also become a market for imaging sensors with cameras becoming one of if not the primary deciding factor in purchasing a new phone. The competition among Android phones is a close and strange one, with many of them using the same sensors. Apple's iPhones, in contrast, have always been in a league of their own and the latest iPhone 11 Pro Max is even more so with its first triple-lens system. DxOmark takes the phone through its testing protocols and, while impressive, still fails to wrest the crown from Huawei.

iOS 13.2.2 released to fix iPhone multitasking bug

Apple has released iOS 13.2.2, promising a fix for the apparent memory management issue that had caused some iPhone and iPad users big problems with multitasking.

iOS 13.2 might be more aggressive in killing background apps

iOS 13.2 might be more aggressive in killing background apps

It seems that Apple still isn't free of the curse of iOS 13 which, in retrospect, should have probably skipped the number. iOS 13.2 was released just a few days ago and, aside from bricking HomePod speakers, it seemed almost uneventful for iPhone and iPad owners.

iPhone shipments in China take a nosedive while Huawei soars

Much of the coverage around Huawei's fate revolves around the negative effects of the US ban on its business, both in mobile and networking equipment. Despite almost all the predictions of doom, however, Huawei released almost unbelievably good numbers when it came to smartphone shipments. One reason may have been that the full effects of Google's absence from its phones have yet to be felt. Another is that, as market analysis company Canalys reports, Huawei's numbers skyrocketed in China last quarter, mostly at the expense of Xiaomi and Apple.

iOS 13.2 brings AirPods Pro support, DeepFusion, big HomePod bug

iOS 13 has been one of Apple's rougher rollouts in quite a while but it seems that things might be settling down a bit now that most showstopper bugs have been addressed. It has definitely not delayed Apple's iOS release schedule, with iOS 13.2 now rolling out to iPhones, iPads, and HomePods. But while the update has good news for almost everyone, owners of Apple's first and so far only smart speaker might want to hold off if they can.
