Apple expands iPhone 13 production in unexpected fashion

Apple expands iPhone 13 production in unexpected fashion

Apple is expanding its iPhone suppliers in China in relatively unprecedented fashion this year. It would appear that the new iPhone 13 Pro will be the main device that'll be manufactured by the company Luxshare Precision Industry, per reports from China.

Apple Store website redesign puts touchscreen users first

The latest update to Apple's website adds a dedicated "Store" tab to the top of the page. The title of the page is "Store", with a description on the first page: "Store.

The QR code system was originally invented back in the year 1994, pre-dating the smartphone by a decade and a half.

Spotify What’s New update lets app target your FOMO

Spotify added a "What's New" feed to their app, at long last. This is a page where users will find new releases from the artists they follow. Simple enough, yes? Should've probably been in the app for a long time now, right?

iPhone 13 isn’t it: You won’t wait for a full screen

iPhone 13 isn’t it: You won’t wait for a full screen

Facebook cloud gaming on iPhones and iPads is an unsurprising mess

Facebook wants to dip its hands on anything that can be related to social engagement, and, to no one's surprise, that included gaming. Trying to reclaim its once glorious position as the trailblazer in web games, Facebook created its own Gaming sub-brand, which is both about live streaming game plays as well as streaming games.
