Apple Patent Hints At 5G Plans And A Metal Oxide Gas Sensor For The Apple Watch

The Apple Watch currently supports LTE, but given that 5G is expected to be the future of mobile connectivity, we imagine that in the future, Apple will most likely release an Apple Watch that will support 5G, and thanks to a recently discovered patent by Patently Apple, it seems that Apple has actually patented such a device.

The problem with the current iteration of wireless charging systems is that they’re not really “wireless”. You would still need to put your smartphone on the charging mat for it to charge, and it stops charging the moment you take it off.

This Wristband Might Be Able To Predict Outbursts In People With Autism

People with autism do not operate on the same levels that the rest of us do, and as such, their behavior can sometimes be unpredictable where they can be prone to sudden aggressive outbursts.

IKEA’s Smart Blinds Won’t Support HomeKit At Launch

One of the selling points of IKEA’s smart home products, apart from its affordability, is how they support Apple’s HomeKit ecosystem.

The Apple Watch has typically been offered in either an aluminum or stainless steel finish.

After Four Years, The Blocks Modular Smartwatch Has Been Cancelled

The problem with a lot of our technology these days is that they are not user-upgradeable. This means that when they are out of date, you either have to suck it up and keep using it, or fork out money for a brand new model.
