iPhone 13 is going to be a different deal: Here’s why

iPhone 13 is going to be a different deal: Here’s why

It is probably very early to make a claim about the forthcoming iPhone – or a new lineup. But with rumors flowing in from every side of the globe, it’s fitting to touch upon certain aspects that’ll make the iPhone 13 a different deal. Presumably, and various sources confirm, the 2021 iPhones will not have a dramatic change in the layout to outrightly contrast the already revamped and exciting iPhone 12 line introduced in fall last year, but some notable changes in features are expected to make things interesting.

iOS 15 might finally drop iPhone 6s, iPhone SE (2016)

iOS 15 might finally drop iPhone 6s, iPhone SE (2016)

Apple is known and highly-praised for its commitment to support years-old smartphones, tablets, and computers, something that, unfortunately, hasn't caught on in the Android world. Even Apple, however, sometimes has to eventually cut off some older devices, though still not as fast or as often as even Google. Soon, that culling period might be happening again this year with the release of iOS 15 which may no longer support devices that are more than five years old by the time it rolls out.

Apple M1 Macs can no longer sideload iPhone, iPad apps

Apple M1 Macs can no longer sideload iPhone, iPad apps

Apple's M1 Silicon opened the doors for more iOS and iPadOS apps to run on macOS beyond the very few supported by Mac Catalyst on Intel-based Macs. Unsurprisingly, some consider the doors still not opened wide enough as some apps are still unavailable from the Mac App Store. That has pushed some to look for a workaround that allowed them to install almost any iPhone or iPad app on M1 Macs. Unfortunately for them, Apple has now closed that window, perhaps for good.

Epic Games brings Fortnite battle against Apple to the UK

Epic Games brings Fortnite battle against Apple to the UK

The calendar has switched to another year but some things have unsurprisingly remained the same. COVID-19 still threatens the world's population, Big Tech is still on trial for various things, and Fortnite remains absent on iPhones. Despite being one of last year's highest-profile dramas, the fight between Epic Games and Apple seems to still have no resolution in sight. As if to stir things up again, Epic Games has apparently filed an antitrust complaint against Apple and even Google, this time in the United Kingdom across the pond.

Facebook yields to iOS 14 privacy changes, leaves businesses a warning

Facebook yields to iOS 14 privacy changes, leaves businesses a warning

Apple has initiated rather big changes to its privacy policies and, unsurprisingly, there are a few that are not so happy about it. Also unsurprisingly, Facebook has been the loudest voice opposing changes to user data tracking across sites and apps but it has also accepted the reality that Apple isn't going to give in, no matter how loud it cries. Now it's telling businesses and partners that it has no choice but to comply with Apple's requirements that will have a negative impact on those businesses in the long run, at least according to Facebook.

AirPop Active+ is a smart mask with an app and a hefty price tag

AirPop Active+ is a smart mask with an app and a hefty price tag

AirPop today announced that it's launching a new smart mask that's supported by a mobile app. Officially dubbed the AirPop Active+ Smart Mask, this mask uses AirPop's Halo sensor to provide feedback about users' breathing habits and filter quality. As you might expect, though, the fact that this is a smart mask inflates the price of it significantly, so if you want to own one yourself, get ready to pay far more than you would for a traditional mask.

Google iOS apps to finally get App Store Privacy Labels this week

Google iOS apps to finally get App Store Privacy Labels this week

Apple's new privacy rules for iOS, though by no means sudden or arbitrary, have been painted in a negative light by Facebook. In contrast, Google has actually been silent on the new cross-tracking limitations and requirements despite being a business that relies heavily on such systems. In fact, Google might have been too silent, some have insinuated, because it has also silently stopped updating its iOS apps since December to comply with the App Store's new rules. Apparently, it was just a matter of clashing schedules and holidays.
