iOS 13.3 bug lets kids talk with strangers despite new parental controls

iOS 13.3 bug lets kids talk with strangers despite new parental controls

Apple's headaches with iOS 13 updates may have diminished but it's far from being a flawless situation. While there have been little reports in the way of broken updates or bricked iPhones, iOS 13.3 may bring its own list of concerns, especially from parents. The latest iOS update added a new feature that would protect kids against strangers but a bug in that Communication Limits ironically lets children get around those blocks, intentionally or otherwise.

2020 iPhone could have a slightly larger battery from small internal change

2020 iPhone could have a slightly larger battery from small internal change

Despite having a probably more energy-efficient mobile operating system, iPhone owners have been begging Apple for a larger battery. Those prayers have been answered, to some extent, when Apple launched the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Of course, the need for more hours of battery life never ends and Apple may be giving next year's iPhones just a wee bit more battery not by enlarging the iPhone yet again but by shrinking at least one part inside.

2021 iPhone: Forget USB-C, it could have no ports at all

Despite the fact that we're still months out from release, we've already heard plenty of rumors about next year's iPhones. Strangely enough, we've been hearing rumors about 2021's iPhones as well, nearly two years before Apple will release them. Today, a famed Apple analyst is making a pretty bold prediction about Apple's 2021 iPhone, claiming that Apple may opt to forgo the charging port on it entirely.

iPhone 12 with Qualcomm in-display fingerprint scanner makes no sense

iPhone 12 with Qualcomm in-display fingerprint scanner makes no sense

Qualcomm just recently announced the evolution of its 3D ultrasonic fingerprint scanning technology and, truth be told, we did find it to be a huge step forward. 3D Sonic Max, as it is called, checks off almost all the complaints that real-world users had with it on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10, at least on the company's demo units. Unsurprisingly, hopes are running high that this new piece of tech would be adopted by more smartphone makers, including Apple. But while it's always within the realm of possibility for the 2020 iPhone to have it, it could be a huge step back as far as Apple is concerned.

Xiaomi Mi Watch Apple Watch clone now works with Apple iPhone

Xiaomi Mi Watch Apple Watch clone now works with Apple iPhone

Chinese brands have had the reputation of being copycats. Chinese phone makers have indeed been guilty of that for a time but, for the past years, they have been working hard to change their public image but, last October, Xiaomi single-handedly undid much of that. It's hard not to see the Mi Watch as a ripoff of the Apple Watch except for the fact that it didn't work with iPhones, ironic as that may sound. As of December 3 in China, however, that sweet irony no longer stands as the Mi Watch will now behave a bit like the original, at least as far as iPhone pairing goes.

2021 iPhone changes could be biggest in Apple’s history

2021 iPhone changes could be biggest in Apple’s history

Today a bit of JPMorgan analysis from Samik Chatterjee suggested 4x new iPhones were on their way for the year 2020 and 2021. These new devices will appear with three different screen sizes next year - then some major changes in under a year after that. There'll be one 5.4-inch model in 2020, two with 6.1-inch displays, and a larger iPhone with a 6.7-inch display. These devices will all - apparently - roll with 5G connectivity.
