Apple May Be Working on a New Smaller Screen iPhone

There were some Apple fans who were unhappy with the company when they killed off the iPhone SE last year, rather than updating it. This meant that there weren’t many options for those Apple users who want a smaller screen device. You can still get an iPhone 7 or 8, but you are giving up something there in terms of specs.

Business Beats Personal: Apple and Qualcomm Settle Up

Two days ago, I wrote an article based on a piece in the Wall Street Journal about how personal the legal battles between Apple and Qualcomm had gotten. The primary point was how little connection and commonality there was between CEOs Tim Cook and Steve Mollenkopf and that because of that, how remote the possibility of a quick settlement seemed.

Guilherme Rambo of 9to5Mac is at it again. He posted an article at 9to5Mac this morning that details several new features that should be coming in iOS 13.

Hands-On Preview: TouchType Pro for iPad Pro

Every once in a while, I come across something really interesting while browsing Kickstarter or Indiegogo. The TouchType Pro, a creative and innovative keyboard case for the current gen iPad Pros, would seem to fit that bill. However, to be completely honest, that’s not how I found it. While the TouchType Pro campaign was just released on Kickstarter, I have been aware of this product for a while now. In fact, I’ve actually been able to go hands on with a prototype for a few weeks. More on this in a bit.

You see, Salman Sajid, the developer of the TouchType Pro and its earlier crowdfunded variations, originally reached out to me back in the Summer of 2017. After reading one of my iPad keyboard case reviews, he wanted to know if I would be interested in a project he was starting to work on. If you are a regular reader here, then you know there was no way I was passing that up.

Some of the Good and Bad of Apple News+

I’ll begin by saying that I have always been a fan of magazines. I used to peruse my father’s mix of sports. shooting and hunting magazines when I was younger. As I grew into my teenage years, gaming magazines got my attention. Then in my college and grad school years it was computer and tech magazines, especially those that focused on early mobile technology. I even ended up managing the magazine section at a local Barnes and Noble for six months because I always loved browsing there.

After a busy couple of weeks, I’ve finally started spending some time using Apple News+. I am already very familiar with Apple News, as I use it daily along with Flipboard and Twitter to keep up with the latest in tech and Apple news and I publish each of our articles on the service, as well.
