iPhone 8 wireless charging only the start: 5 Apple teams reportedly involved

The iPhone 8 may embrace wireless charging, but Apple is reportedly going all-in with developing cable-free solutions, with claims that five different teams at the company are all working on the technology. The absence of wireless charging has long been a point of criticism about the iPhone, forcing owners who want to be free of wires to either jump ship to Android devices where the tech has been commonly offered for some time, or to pick up a third-party adapter, like Mophie's recent Juice Packs. Now, though, it's apparently full-steam-ahead at Cupertino.

March 2017 iPad Pro event tipped for 10.5-inch Chromebook rival

Apple is planning a clean sweep of its iPad Pro range for 2017, with talk of four new models of the tablet including an all-new screen size seemingly targeting Chromebook buyers.

Thanks to early leaks coming out of China's Weibo site, we're getting some ideas of what to expect when it comes to the Android device's specs.

A 5-inch "tweener" iPhone 8, in-between 2017's 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones, has again been rumored, along with new - and potentially frustrating - details on charging and accessories.

Magic Leap CEO: That bulky prototype leak isn’t our AR wearable

Magic Leap's CEO has denied the accuracy of the supposedly leaked hardware from the clandestine augmented reality firm, claiming it's not a prototype of the upcoming AR glasses. Photos of the "PEQ0" prototype emerged late last week, showing what looked to be a bulky backpack-style computer system tethered to a headset. Unsurprisingly for a startup which has provoked as much skepticism as it has anticipation, the reaction was swift and fairly merciless.
