iPhone 12 Pro leak points to long-awaited LiDAR feature

iPhone 12 Pro leak points to long-awaited LiDAR feature

The iPad Pro's inclusion of a LiDAR system wasn't exactly unexpected but it was still surprising to some extent. Leaks have hinted at Apple taking the professional tablet's cameras in that direction but more probably expected the technology to come to the iPhones first. It turns out that, probably due to scheduling, the iPad Pro was only getting a head start and the iPhone 12, specifically the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, will be getting that same camera and sensor combo for improved 3D object identification.

Pokemon GO is fun again, thanks to COVID-19

During the outbreak of COVID-19, novel coronavirus, the global pandemic, and the quarantine therein, Niantic's made Pokemon GO fun again. At the start, the game held great potential.

iPhone SE name for 2020 model accidentally confirmed by Apple

iPhone SE name for 2020 model accidentally confirmed by Apple

Well, that didn't take long. It was recently revealed, through the usual trusted sources, that Apple's next iPhone of the affordable kind will, in fact, be named the iPhone SE, just with a "2020" attached to it. Of course, that's more or less still unofficial, even if it makes sense, until Apple itself confirms it. It just did, though probably without intending it, through a listing for a screen protector that puts "iPhone SE" along side the iPhone and the iPhone 7.

2020 iPhone SE is the name we can finally settle on

2020 iPhone SE is the name we can finally settle on

Apple is still pushing through its product launches, unsurprisingly, though that doesn't really speak for how much inventory it will have at that time. With the new iPad Pros out of the way and the next iPhones still months in the making, Apple fans are looking to the iPhone 9 or iPhones SE 2 for the next big affordable thing. That name has always been surrounded by confusion and contention but it seems that there is finally a third option that sort of makes sense.

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.

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.

Low-cost iPhone case shows up at retailers hinting at imminent launch

Despite all the events unfolding around the COVID-19 pandemic, Apple has been expected to still push through with its new product launches. It did so almost two weeks ago with the new iPad Pros but curiously missing was the low-cost iPhone that was also expected to debut at the end of the month. Apple probably just wanted to give the 2020 iPad Pros their time in the spotlight because if this leak about the iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9 is accurate, we might finally see it as early as Sunday.

5G iPhone could be delayed to 2021 in worst-case scenario

Although there were already signs that Apple's supplies would be affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, the general presumption has been that the company would push through with its scheduled product launch even if it meant starting off with limited supplies. Now the word from insiders in Apple's supply chain isn't exactly hopeful. Apple's first 5G-capable iPhone could be delayed beyond its initial September launch date and could extend even to 2021 at the extreme latest.
