Tim Cook’s Android selfie snapper gives Twitter a laugh on iPhone 11 release day

Today Apple took what might've been a sort of PR flub into an opportunity to sell another iPhone. Today is the release date for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, so CEO Tim Cook and retail chief Deirdre O'Brien headed to the most extravagant Apple Store in the world. That's the newly-remodeled Manhattan Fifth Avenue Store, where a crowd did, indeed, gather for the event.

Windows 10 20H1 will make the Bluetooth pairing process faster

Windows 10 20H1 will make the Bluetooth pairing process faster

Microsoft already made it know not to expect big new features in the Windows 10 update later this year. That will be focused on polishing the user experience and fixing bugs. Look to version 20H1, instead, if you want to hear about new features and it does seem like Microsoft is packing quite the features based on Insider Previews. The latest drop might not have big changes but they can be life-changing for users that constantly pair Bluetooth devices or, better yet, take a lot of screenshots.

Apple Find My apps hidden Items tab reinforce Tag rumors

At its iPhone event last week, there was one particular rumor that Apple didn't bring to life. The company was believed to be working on a product that will rival the popular Tile tracker but that was nowhere to be seen. It might, however, still be on the table and might just be a matter of time before it gets launched. Because according to a new screenshot and text from Apple's Find My app, all the pieces are already in place for its debut.

Surface Pen could charge wirelessly soon

Microsoft will have a big Surface event in a few weeks and, naturally, much of the discussion has been around its Surface computers. Some even hope that it will finally show a much-awaited dual-screen device. There is also a small chance of new Surface accessories and it seems that one of the more exciting ones is the Surface Pen. At least based on a steady flow of leaks, it might finally be catching up to the world of S Pens and Apple Pencils.

Vivo V17 Pro puts two cameras in a single popup

Vivo V17 Pro puts two cameras in a single popup

Vivo can probably be both blamed and credit for the creation of a new breed of phones that hide their front cameras in an elevating mechanism. Although it didn't exactly become a trend that bigger OEMs copied, phones with popup cameras have proliferated, especially among the Chinese manufacturers. With that many popup cameras popping up in the market, the challenge to the originator has become even greater. On the heels of announcing its NEX 3 5G, Vivo is debuting the new V17 Pro nearly bezel-less phone that takes the popup camera game to a new level.

Twitter users in the US and Japan can now hide replies

Twitter users in the US and Japan can now hide replies

Twitter, especially with its original 140-character limit was meant as a way for people to share thoughts in short, brief bursts. It, however, exploded into a social networking phenomenon that constantly tried to break out of the platform's imposed limits. The social network recently doubled the character limit to 280 but that only increased a different phenomenon: tweetstorms and conversations. Now Twitter is experimenting with ways authors can change the narrative by hiding replies that they deem harmful to the discourse and their followers.

Galaxy Fold gets a dedicated video on how to take care of it

Galaxy Fold gets a dedicated video on how to take care of it

When was the last time you've seen an instructional or even just promotional video about how to take care of a smartphone? Those may have been common back in 2009 when the first ones were still coming out of the market but, these days, it is presumed that almost everyone knows the basics of protecting a phone from an early, accidental death. Samsung made that mistaken presumption a few months back so now it isn't taking any chances with a short video on what not to do with the world's second commercially available foldable phone.

Nokia Android feature phone will put voice at the center of interaction

Nokia Android feature phone will put voice at the center of interaction

It may seem that the days of the feature phones, a.k.a. the not so smart "dumbphones", are over but recent developments prove otherwise. They are just taking a different form and sometimes with new capabilities that take them one step closer to being extremely cheap and less capable smartphones. The recently announced KaiOS-powered Alcatel GO Flip 3 with Google Assistant is just one example and an Android-powered feature phone, probably made by Nokia, might be coming next.

Google Chrome introduces new features to reorder tab clutter

Google Chrome introduces new features to reorder tab clutter

Many people live in their browsers to the point that having 30 or more tabs open at the same time, some of them might even be days old. And that's on just one device, with some people these days owning at least a phone in addition to a computer. In other words, managing browser tabs can be quite the mess and Google is finally giving Chrome users a bit of help with new features that won't exactly reduce the number of tabs you open but at least make them more manageable.

Galaxy A80 flipping camera is built for abuse

Galaxy A80 flipping camera is built for abuse

These days, smartphones compete on two major aspects. One is the number and quality cameras on their backs and the other is the lack of bezels on the front. Samsung presented a rather unique and at the same time odd proposal to solve both of those in the Galaxy A80 that combines popup cameras and rotating cameras in an unusual way. Novelty, however, sometimes comes at the cost of stability and especially durability, which is something for JerryRigEverything to put to the test.

YouTube is making it much harder for channels to get verified

As with certain social media platforms, YouTube makes it possible for some users to become 'verified,' a status that is meant to ensure that viewers can tell the channel they're looking for from others that may be impersonating it. Channel verification isn't going away, but YouTube has revealed big criteria changes related to it, ones that will cause some users to lose their 'verified' status.
