Galaxy Note 9 specs leaks keep getting better

This week we're having a peek at the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as it exists in this very pre-official state. At the moment, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in a sort of limbo between development and reality.

Future Apple Pencil might work without an iPad Pro

It’s a bit amusing to see Apple embracing something it scorned in the past. Although it hasn’t completely adopted the stylus the Microsoft has with Windows Ink, Apple does seem to be playing around with the idea of expanding the Apple Pencil beyond the confines of iPad Pros. And, no, that doesn’t mean an iPhone Apple Pencil. In fact, based on this recently spotted patent, it won’t even need any iOS device at all.

Universal Stylus Initiative: it’s about time for a pen comeback

Universal Stylus Initiative: it’s about time for a pen comeback

Steve Jobs was wrong. The stylus is far from a being a ridiculous and unnecessary accessory. OK, he wasn’t completely wrong. In the context of the tiny screen of the first iPhone and the Android phones that followed, the stylus may have indeed been more of a liability. We also owe that stylus witch hunt for pushing the user interface into more touch-friendly territory. But times have changed, screens are larger, and phones and especially tablets have become more than just content consumption devices. Even post-Jobs Apple has embraced the digital pen. It’s about time the industry rally behind the stylus, and the young Universal Stylus Initiative might just be the place to do it.

Galaxy Note 9 could make S Pen and finger work together

Yes, the Galaxy S9 isn’t even out yet, but that’s never a reason not to start talking about a phone that’s still probably 8 months in the making. With the foldable Galaxy X not expected to launch until next year, the Galaxy Note 9 won’t be overshadowed when it comes out. Especially not if these patents turn into reality. Patents filed in both the US and Korea reveal Samsung’s plans to enhance S Pen functionality almost ironically by making it work with your finger.

Apple Pencil for iPhone 12 tipped in Korea

Apple Pencil for iPhone 12 tipped in Korea

A new tip on Apple's stylus-laden future has come to light, this time making a play for the next-generation iPhone. We're so extremely far away from the next iPhone right now that I'm taking a total stab in the dark with the name iPhone 12 - it could also be the iPhone Pro, or the iPhone 11 (even though X is 10, and 11 should then come in 2018, and this device is tipped for 2019). The more important point right this minute is the suggestion that the next iPhone might have its own stylus, not unlike the Apple Pencil.
