New iPhone 13 details this week – release date still likely later

New iPhone 13 details this week – release date still likely later

While the next iPhone will be different from the last, it won't likely break tradition when it comes to its own release date schedule. In a note released this week by investor analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, new features were outlined for the next set of smartphone devices in the Apple universe. These devices are tentatively titled iPhone 13 (unless Apple comes completely out of left field with a new naming scheme), and they'll probably be arriving this Autumn.

Google Photos makes documents easy to find – so you can delete them

Google Photos makes documents easy to find – so you can delete them

A Google Photos update this week added a Documents tab to assist in the process of finding documents in one's photo collection. This might not seem all that important if you believe you've never used your smartphone or smart device camera to "scan" a document before. Why would you? As some users are finding out, they've captured far more personal, private, or otherwise important information via casual smartphone snap than they initially believed.

Galaxy Tab S7 Good Lock modules offer powerful customization options

Galaxy Tab S7 Good Lock modules offer powerful customization options

Despite cleaning it up, Samsung's One UI still adds a lot of changes on top of what is commonly known as the "stock Android" experience. For some Android users, that's already too much but others still crave more ways they can tweak their devices. Samsung's suite of Good Lock modules tries to offer those optional tweaks and power features and, now that Good Luck is compatible with Android 11 devices, owners of the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ can enjoy those options as well to increase their productivity.

Galaxy S22 might skip the 3D ToF sensor yet again

Galaxy S22 might skip the 3D ToF sensor yet again

Samsung seems to be at a stage where it's rapidly playing around with its camera systems, quickly changing the formula based on what works and what doesn't. One of the puzzle pieces that has changed since last year has been its use of a 3D Time-of-Flight sensor or ToF which was present until the Galaxy S20 last year. Since then, however, the tech has been missing and it seems that next year's Galaxy S22 will miss out on it again, hinting at the end of its use at least for the time being.

Android 12 Recycle Bin, automatic app translation seen in leaked build

Android 12 Recycle Bin, automatic app translation seen in leaked build

Thanks to its history, lineage, and convention, the Android mobile platform is closer to desktop operating systems compared to something like iOS or even the augmented iPadOS. Many of the conventions and features people enjoy on desktops are sometimes available on Android, though it often requires OEMs or third-party apps to implement them. Sometimes, however, Google itself eventually gives in and makes those features available for all Android users, like two that may be coming in Android 12 that will give users access to a "Recycle Bin" and get apps translated even if the developers didn't provide any translations themselves.

iPhone 13 notch size compared to iPhone 12 looks significantly smaller

iPhone 13 notch size compared to iPhone 12 looks significantly smaller

Some say you sometimes need a bit of perspective to really appreciate how things are. In the case of subtler design changes, you often need a comparison to really see the difference. This year's iPhone is expected to remain mostly unchanged from last year's design except in one or two aspects, and these latest real-world photos show how the iPhone 12's notch looks almost gigantic compared to the more refined cutout of the iPhone 13.

Apple April 2021 event: What to expect from “Spring Loaded”

Apple April 2021 event: What to expect from “Spring Loaded”

As it generally is with an Apple Event announcement, we do not expect the title of said event to imply anything specific for said event. There won't likely be any major physical, metal springs in play - they're almost certainly just saying that the event is taking place in the Spring, and that they have some exciting products to show. Also the spring graphic makes for a very interesting iteration of the Apple logo.

Galaxy Z Fold Tab with tri-fold design could launch early next year

Galaxy Z Fold Tab with tri-fold design could launch early next year

Even with Huawei's, Motorola's, and now even Xiaomi's presence, it's hard to deny that, at least for the moment, Samsung has cornered the foldable phone market that it also created itself. It is close to launching third-generation models of its Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip phones but there are indicators that it isn't going to stop there. Aside from future rollable phones, the company has been known to be toying around with ideas for more foldable devices, one of which might even be arriving as early as next year's first quarter.

Nokia N-Gage games brought back to life with EKA2L1 Symbian emulator

Nokia N-Gage games brought back to life with EKA2L1 Symbian emulator

Although perhaps most notorious for turning the mobile market into a dumping ground for dozens of models, the old Nokia was also famous for some iconic phones as well as some innovations that were far too ahead of their time. Even before mobile gaming became the lucrative industry it is today, Nokia was actually the first to put out a proper gaming phone way before smartphones became the reigning device category. For those old enough to remember or those who want to see what the fuss was all about, a Symbian/S60 emulator now lets you turn your Android phone into the modern version of the Nokia N-Gage.
