Is Apple still working, as once rumored, on integrating a fingerprint scanner into the screens of its phones, or does the company plan to put Face ID in all future iPhones?
According to a report from usually accurate analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, via 9to5Mac, Apple hasn’t really decided yet.
If the user response to iPhoneX’s Face ID is positive, the report claims, Apple will likely add the technology to all 2018 models. If it “fails to impress consumers,” the company will probably resume its efforts to embed Touch ID into iPhone screens. Read more…
Let’s talk about the red dot.
The hint of bright color on the Apple Watch Series 3 digital crown serves no function. It’s just a bold reminder that this wearable doesn’t need your iPhone to do its job, thank you very much.
Apple describes the blood-red dot as a sort of aesthetic accent that announces to the world that this Apple Watch has its own LTE radio. With that and the built-in GPS, the Apple Watch Series 3 is self-sufficient, letting you go for a run and leave your phone behind without worrying about not being able to make and receive calls, get and send texts, and get turn-by-turn navigation guidance.

Apple’s new iOS 11 update allows users to select and type with one-handed keyboards — which allows you to more conveniently use your thumb to type when only one hand is available.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Open up your iPhone keyboard in the Notes or Messenger apps.
2. Press down and hold the emoji button (located in the bottom left of the standard keyboard).
3. Three keyboard options will appear in the settings: Left-handed, standard, and right-handed. Select what works best.
4. Once a one-handed keyboard is selected, a “chevron” sign will appear on the side of the keyboard. Selecting that will allow you to return to normal (aka standard) keyboard settings. Read more…
Chill everyone. Just chill. No, the $999 iPhone X is not too expensive. Nor is it out of the reach of the average American. In fact, it’s a great deal! Some serious bang for your buck. And when you sit down and really think about it, it’d practically be bad for your wallet not to buy it.
How do I know this to be an undeniable truth of this modern age? It’s simple: Apple CEO Tim Cook told me. Well, he told us, but it felt like he was talking directly to me.

iPhone users will notice a good many tweaked changes to features like Control Center and the redesigned App Store, but iPad owners are the ones who’ll see the most profound refresh to their software.
With iOS 11, Apple has finally transformed the iPad (and especially the iPad Pro) from being a jumbo iPhone to a full-fledged multitasking tablet that, while not quite a perfect replacement for a laptop, is closer to that vision than ever before. Read more…
The Silicon Valley start-up Pi says they have found a way to charge phones and tablets by simply placing the devices near its cone-like charger.
If the company’s claims are true, the Pi charger would be the world’s first contactless charger. This device doesn’t simply ditch wires — it is an innovative leap beyond the recently introduced charging pads, which power devices by placing them on the pads.
Until the devices are available for review, however, the technology should be viewed with a healthy dose of skepticism. While Pi has built an elegant website and is staffed by some apparently brainy MIT-schooled researchers, some of the most technologically advanced companies in the world — of note, Apple — have yet to offer this contactless technology.
