As smartphone companies continue to pack their products with more powerful components, there's a need for cooling solutions that would keep the handsets from overheating. In the last couple of years, many handset makers adopted cooling solutions, but only for their top-of-the-line products due to the high costs.Read More
In just a few days, carriers and retailers will open iPhone X pre-orders. As many of you probably know by now, iPhone X price starts at $1,000, which is why some carriers plan to sweeten their deals with some freebies or discounts.
US carriers Sprint and T-Mobile have already announced their promotional offers on the iPhone X, but there are many others that would like to woo new customers into buying Apple's new flagship.
So let's say that thanks to Hurricane Harvey your Apple iPhone or Apple iPad sustained serious water damage that basically destroyed one or both devices. Despite the IP67 certification rating on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has made it clear that water damage is not covered by its warranty. So under normal circumstances, the flooding in Texas would normally lead to water logged iPhone units that would not be replaced by Apple, even if they are supposed to withstand a submersion to 3.3-feet for as long as 30-minutes.
Motorola has just announced that one of its smartwatches, the Moto 360 Sport will finally receive the long-awaited Android Wear 2.0 update. After updating the second-generation Moto 360 back in May, Motorola backtrack on its plans to leave the Moto 360 Sport without the update.
Alright, folks, we are gearing up for another exciting period of the year — the August-September phone announcement bonanza, with IFA in Berlin, and Apple's iPhonekeynote. Among the major players we are about to see, there is LG's upcoming super-powered phablet — the LG V30.
Now, if you've been following for a while, you probably know that the LG V10 and LG V20both had this weird secondary “ticker” screen, which housed notifications, app shortcuts, media controls, an always-on clock, and some utility toggles. However, it seems it will be gone for the latest iteration of the phone series.
Leaks insist that LG is done with the ticker for now. Instead, the V30 will have an extra-tall 18:9 display and its software will feature a floating bar-type of a menu, which would simulate the ticker's features.
Last time we asked about the secondary display was just after HTC launched the U Ultra with its own ticker on top. Back then, nearly 65% of people said they believe it to be a useful feature and not a gimmick. Well, now that it seems to be going away from the V30, will you miss it?
Smartphone cameras may have come a long way, but one of their greatest shortcomings is yet to be adequately addressed – their poor low-light performance.
Since smartphone cameras are powered by tiny sensors (at least compared to dedicated cameras), they can get nowhere near the low-light performance and dynamic range of a mirrorless, DSLR—be it crop or full frame—or а film camera. And since manufacturers are not going to start cramming bigger sensors in smartphone cameras anytime soon, for obvious reasons, one way to partially alleviate this issue is to implement wider apertures.
President Trump’s election campaign largely revolved around making “America great again” and bringing businesses into the country. Trump has been quite engaged with the tech sector in particular, where bringing the production of iPhones to American soil seems like one of his top priorities in the business field. While it is not clear whether Tim Cook actually promised Trump last week to build three ‘big, big, big’ Apple plants in the US, the president has apparently been involved in a previously rumoured venture with Foxconn that was officially announced yesterday.
At a White House ceremony this Wednesday, it was revealed that the Taiwan-based tech company plans to build a $10 billion LCD panels manufacturing facility in the state of Wisconsin that should open by 2020. The event was attended by both business people and legislators, including Gov. Scott Walker and Foxconn’s CEO Terry Gou. White House host president Trump was obviously also present, commenting that the project was made possible by his election.
Samsung Australia reveals "Screen Assure" free Galaxy Note 8 screen repair; launch date August 25th?
Last month, Microsoft started selling a brand new Surface Pro, which succeeds the Surface Pro 4 from 2015, and brings a series of enhancements (though nothing groundbreaking).
Some of the customers who purchased a new Surface Pro have been noticing that the convertible tablet has a bug that's making it randomly enter hibernation mode, or shut down (even when plugged in, or with plenty of battery life remaining).Read More
Several months after releasing the G6 (to generally positive reviews), LG is now getting ready to launch its second high-end smartphone of 2017: the LG V30.
Judging by a "Save The Date" teaser revealed today by Evan Blass (known on Twitter and among tech enthusiasts as @evleaks), the LG V30 will be officially announced on August 31 in Berlin – almost certainly during a pre-IFA 2017 event.Read More
If you've ever caught yourself daydreaming about eating some tender, juicy chicken wings while idly staring at your phone, Huawei and KFC have teamed up to give you... something. A way to ease the cravings? Or maybe to amplify them, maybe — we couldn't tell you if we tried, but the end result is a bright-red, KFC-branded smartphone, complete with a portrait of Colonel Sanders himself etched into its back.
Apple today released the developer version of iOS 11 beta 3, weighing in at 392MB. For the moment, registered developers only get to install the new iOS build. The public version of the beta should be available in a few days to those who have signed up to receive them. Among the new features is a different way to close apps on the iPad by swiping up on the multitasking screen. The "X" button seen on beta 1 and beta 2 of the build have been replaced by the new swipe to close gesture.
Other features included in the update include an improvement to the cover sheet of the Notification Center. This will now show all notifications. No longer is it necessary to use a swipe gesture to view older notifications.
The changelist for the iOS 11 beta 3 developer version includes:
