Right now, the only way to charge the AirPods would be to put it inside of its carrying case, which also doubles as a charger. This means that you need to have the case if you want to charge the earbuds. However, a patent discovered by AppleInsider suggests that Apple is looking at alternate ways.
It is largely expected that Apple will be hosting an event in the coming months where they are expected to unveil new products like a new iPad, maybe the AirTags, and possibly more, but it seems that the company has a “big announcement” that they are planning on making tomorrow.
If you’ve completely bought into the Apple ecosystem and own multiple Apple products like an iPad, Apple Watch, iPhone, AirPods, and more, then you might be interested in taking a look at Kensington’s latest offering that the company unveiled at CES 2021 – the Kensington StudioDock.
Our phones contain magnets, but with the iPhone 12 series, Apple has introduced more magnets thanks to the (re)introduction of MagSafe. Some have wondered that with these additional magnets, could it interfere with other devices, like credit cards, access cards, as well as medical devices like pacemakers.
For those who were fans of the iPhone SE, we had previously reported that Apple would not be refreshing the device so soon. We had heard that it might arrive in the second half of 2021 at the earliest, but a report from Macotakara is now claiming otherwise and that we might actually see the phone launched in April 2021.
Apple has, in the past, always strived to make its iPhones as thin as humanly possible. While it is a tech marvel and beautiful to behold, some people have had issues with the thinness as it can make it a bit hard to hold. This is why the iPhone 12 mini actually garnered a lot of praise as it was considerably more manageable than its larger and more unwieldy sibling, […]
Every year, Apple introduces various upgrades to its iPhone cameras, but it seems that if analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s report is accurate, we shouldn’t expect any major upgrades to the iPhone’s main camera until 2023. The analyst claims that the upgrades will mostly be applied to both the ultrawide and telephoto lenses for the 2021 and 2022 models.
When Apple announced the iPhone 12 lineup, many initial reviews praised the iPhone 12 mini with its more manageable 5.4-inch display. It was also relatively affordable compared to the other models and it felt like maybe Apple would have another hit on their hands, but it turns out that isn’t the case.
In case you weren’t aware, not all 5G is equal. This is because depending on the antennas in your smartphone, you might be connected to either mmWave 5G or sub-6GHz 5G. The former offers faster speeds compared to sub-6GHz, but have a shorter range, while the latter offers wider coverage but at the cost of speed.
With the launch of the iPhone 12, Apple introduced a LiDAR scanner to its iPhones that they initially debuted with the iPad Pro in 2020. However, only the iPhone 12 Pro models had the feature, while the other models did not. However, that is expected to change with this year’s iPhone lineup.
If the rumors are to be believed, Apple is apparently working on a foldable iPhone. This seems to be in response to companies such as Samsung who have released multiple foldable phones to date. Now according to the latest rumors, the testing of these alleged foldable iPhones seems to be going well.
The problem with power banks and battery cases is that it’s not quite convenient to use as it either requires you to bring an extra cable or you need to encase your phone in a thick and bulky case. However, if you do need the extra juice while you’re on the go, then you might be interested in what could possibly be the world’s first third-party MagSafe battery pack for […]
At the moment, Apple’s iOS devices are typically limited to just one user per device. This is unlike a computer where users can sign in using their own ID where their preferences and files are kept separately. However, it seems that in the future, iOS devices could potentially allow for multiple user accounts.
During Apple’s iPhone 12 presentation, they brought Verizon’s CEO Hans Vestberg onto stage where they highlighted 5G and how iPhone 12 users could benefit from it. This is more or less a given, considering that 5G will indeed offer up faster speeds compared to previous technologies like 4G, but it seems that in the real-world, that isn’t necessarily the case.
When Apple’s iPhone 12 was officially announced and it was confirmed that the handset would come without a charger, many were quick to mock the company, such as Samsung who posted an ad saying, “Your #Galaxy does give you what you are looking for. From the most basic as a charger, to the best camera, battery, performance, memory and even 120Hz screen.”
Right now, the notch has become part of the iPhone’s design for the past few years and we expect that it will be here to stay for a few more. However, a report from DigiTimes claims that with the iPhone 13, the notch is expected to be smaller compared to previous generations of the iPhone.
With the launch of the iPhone 12, it marks Apple’s foray into the 5G smartphone market. The company can sort of be thought of being “late” to the game given that we’ve seen 5G smartphones launch back in 2019, but it turns out that maybe it did not matter because the iPhone 12 has managed to become the top 5G smartphone.
Apple’s iPhone 12 comes with support for WiFi 6, but it seems that the next-gen iPhone, presumably known as the iPhone 13, could come with support for a slightly newer version of WiFi 6 called WiFi 6E.
One of the new features that Apple introduced with its latest iPhones is a new “format” called ProRAW, although to be fair, it’s not really a new format, but rather it is based on the RAW image format. Some had initially wondered about it, and whether or not it would only usable between iOS and Mac devices, but it turns out that won’t be the case.
One of the advantages that iOS has over Android is timely and extended software updates and support. Android devices are typically kept updated for around 2 years, after which users are pretty much on their own. This perk of iOS can clearly be seen in Apple’s latest iOS adoption figures where the company claims that 81% of iPhones from the past four years are now running on iOS 14.
