When it comes to wireless charging, I confess, I’m not that well-versed in the intricacies of smartphone electronics. More importantly, there are plenty of myths about how you should charge your device in the most effective, safest, and least battery-draining manner.
I don’t want to repeat junk science, so I’ll try to provide as much sourcing as I can for my battery-related statements.
Apple has released a lot of smartphones over the last few years and added lots of innovative new features - some are great like FaceID and some less popular like the infamous "notch". But the great unsung hero of the last few years was the humble iPhone SE. Looking like an iPhone 5 but equipped with many of the same internals as the iPhone 6s, it was discontinued last year with no successor. The rumour mill is grinding away and it looks like an iPhone SE2 could be coming. Here's what we can expect.
Do you use "guys" as a general pronoun for both men and women? If you've ever wondered whether that's ok (if you are in fact speaking to a mixed-gender crowd), here's Will from Los Angeles writing into the January 12th podcast With Friends Like These to ask "Do you think the term guys has reached gender-neutral status in the language today?"
With most of the major Android smartphone makers having unveiled their flagship models for 2019, attention now shifts to Cupertino to see what Apple has in store. Although some improvements are predictable, there are some that updates that we should while there are a few wild cards out there as well. What can we expect from the 2019 iPhone?
Right on cue — it being Apple announcement day and all — the services-oriented tech giant has released the latest version of its iOS operating system. If you don’t already have it, or have yet to receive the notification that an iOS update is available, simply tap on your Settings app & General & Software Update to begin the download.
This can take some time - it took me about an hour or so to download and install the update on a reasonably fast internet connection. While you wait, here are some of the big features you can look forward to with the update!
I feel a little bad for not knowing about this previously, but that’s part of the fun of iOS: There’s always some random new thing, like the how-to-move-many-apps-at-once trick, that pops up on one’s geeky radar from time to time.
I confess, I haven’t really touched iOS shortcuts much since the feature’s big debut last September, but don’t let my laziness dissuade you from fiddling around with them. If you’re just getting started, you should find some awesome premade shortcuts to integrate into your device instead of spending way too much time figuring out how to build your own. That’s fun too, but there’s no need to jump in the deep end just yet.
Even though Apple can sometimes mess up iOS updates pretty good, the updates that fix these issues are important. So much so, that you really should install them the day they come out. However, most people probably aren’t scanning the web, nor their Settings app, to see when a new iOS update is available.
Researchers and rumour-mongers have been trawling their contacts, trying to piece together Apple's roadmap for 2019. And while the Cupertino tech and media powerhouse has been pretty quiet when it comes to radically new products, it seems that 2019 will be a big year with several new products and substantial upgrades. Here's what we can expect.
