  • iPhone 8 wireless charging speed will improve with future firmware update from Apple

    Personally I'm not really all that enthused about wireless charging at home. I figure as long as I can raise a fork to my mouth I can handle plugging in my devices, it's really not much of an inconvenience at all. However, I am excited about the idea of wireless charging built into tables at restaurants, coffee houses, libraries, etc. That would be very convenient to me.
  • Apple partners with LG to make new 4K & 5K UltraFine Displays

    Kinda pricey. Cost will have to come down before I buy one.
  • Supply chain sources again point to Apple's 'iPhone 7 Plus' having 3GB of RAM

    The photo shows no jack for an audio mini-plug, which I know is not new news. But I have to say I'm really annoyed about the lack of a standard mini-plug for audio. What exactly is Apple accomplishing here? Saving $0.02 on parts and manufacturing? Diminishing the thickness of the iPhone by 0.5mm? Extending the battery life by 10 mins? Do they think it will be so cool and modern and advanced? Or are they just trying to line the pockets of themselves and the iPhone ecosystem by forcing people to yet again buy more cable adapters.

    I feel like Apple is making this change just for the sake of making changes. So that the "new" iPhone can add one more feature to the reportedly short list of new features (although I would debate the change being called a "feature").

    I'm really glad Apple doesn't run our nation's electrical grid. Otherwise we be buying all new appliances ever few years because Apple would keep changing the size of our electrical outlets.

    By the way, I love Apple, I always have. I just question how this is a benefit to their customers.
  • New photos show possible Lightning-equipped EarPods for Apple's 'iPhone 7'

    Would this mean that you can't charge the phone AND have ear/head phones plugged in at the same time? When is Apple going to stop restricting usefulness for the sake of one less millimeter in thinness? The phone is thin enough. I don't hear ANYONE saying I'm not going to buy the phone because it's too darn thick. UGH!!

    Apparently the new tip hovers in mid air too.
    It's sitting on a glass table which is standing on a wood floor. At first glance it does look like it's floating on a wood table, but it's not.
