iPhone 13 might feature in-display fingerprint scanner, foldable iPhone in the works

The iPhone 13 arriving later this year will not come with major changes but it might have an in-display fingerprint scanner in tow since Apple has started testing it as a key upgrade for 2021, reports Bloomberg. Starting with iPhone X, all iPhones except the iPhone SE (2020) came without the Touch ID fingerprint reader and used Face ID facial recognition for biometric authentication. However, Face ID has turned out to be a less practical solution amidst the ongoing pandemic since the technology often fails to unlock the phone when the user is wearing a mask. So you either have to pull…

Samsung Galaxy M62 gets FCC certified with 7,000 mAh battery

A Samsung device bearing model designation SM-M62F/DS and believed to be the Galaxy M62 has bagged FCC certification, revealing a 7,000 mAh battery in the process. Additionally, FCC revealed that SM-M62F/DS will ship with a 25W charger and feature a USB-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack. The documents on the US regulator’s website also include model code SM-E625F/DS, which is rumored to be the Galaxy F62, meaning we’ll likely see Samsung sell the same device with different names in different markets. FCC didn’t detail the specs of the device, but thanks to Geekbench, we know the…

Top insider says Apple is testing a crazy next-gen iPhone 13 feature

Apple is reportedly exploring a vapor chamber thermal system for use on future iPhone Pro models. Apple’s next-gen iPhone 13 will reportedly be released this coming September. The iPhone 13 will reportedly boast a handful of camera improvements and a slightly smaller notch.

It’s only January but we’ve already seen quite a few rumors surrounding Apple’s next-gen iPhone, a device Apple might call the iPhone 13. The most recent rumor comes to us from Ming-Chi Kuo, a noted Apple analyst who arguably has the best track record in the business when it comes to anticipating upcoming Apple products and new features.

In a new research note obtained by StreetInsider, Kuo writes that Apple is “aggressively” testing a vapor chamber thermal system for use in upcoming iPhone models. Said to be a feature that may first appear on Apple’s iPhone Pro lineup, the technology is designed to handle the higher thermal output that comes along with the iPhone’s increasingly strong computing power and the inclusion of a 5G chipset.

WhatsApp moves forwards the date to accept its new terms to May 15

WhatsApp has announced that it is moving forward the date to accept its new terms and conditions to May 15. The previous date for this was February 8. The company says this is due to all the confusion and misinformation around their latest update and that they are going to use the time to clear up the misinformation around how privacy and security works on WhatsApp. They will then go to people gradually to review the policy at their own pace before May 15. Thank you to everyone who’s reached out. We’re still working to counter any confusion by communicating directly with @WhatsApp…

This coronavirus test could tell you how bad your COVID-19 infection will be

Researchers from Yale think coronavirus PCR tests using saliva might help to predict severe COVID-19 risk. They found that patients who developed COVID-19 complications and those who died had much higher viral loads in saliva than those who recovered. Other parameters indicative of severe illness were associated with higher viral loads in saliva as well. If the data is accurate, saliva PCR tests might become markers of severe COVID-19 risk and help doctors save more lives.

Two coronavirus vaccines are already available in the US, but supply and logistical issues prevent the drugs from significantly impacting the spread of COVID-19. The virus is still surging in the country, with January having set brand new records for daily cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. The US will continue to suffer for the foreseeable future. Over 38,000 people have died in the first two weeks of the year. According to new CDC data, More than 92,000 more are projected to die in the next three weeks.

While the death rate of COVID-19 is low, the more people get infected, the higher the chances that some will experience life-threatening complications that will require hospitalization. Not everyone will survive the infection, even though doctors are saving more lives than in the early months of the pandemic. But that might change if the findings of a new COVID-19 study turn out to be accurate. Researchers have discovered a correlation between the quantity of virus in saliva and the risk of developing a severe form of the illness.

iOS 14.4 includes a surprising new warning for iPhone owners

Apple released iOS 14.4 beta 2 on Wednesday, January 13th, and users are already finding surprising new features in the code of the software update. One report reveals that the code in iOS 14.4 suggests that Apple is going to add a warning for users that have had their cameras replaced with aftermarket components. Apple suggests that iPhone owners go to Apple Stores and Authorized Apple Service Providers for repairs and replacements so that they will always get genuine Apple parts.

Nearly a month after seeding the first iOS 14.4 beta to developers, Apple rolled out iOS 14.4 beta 2 on Wednesday. The update wasn’t especially significant — mostly building upon what had already been added in the first beta — but there was one surprising addition that we did not see coming. First spotted by MacRumors, there is code in the latest beta that suggests Apple is planning to add a feature that will warn iPhone owners if their device has had its camera repaired or replaced with aftermarket components instead of Apple’s own components.

Xiaomi denies any ties to the Chinese military in response to being blacklisted by the US

Yesterday the US government designated Xiaomi a “Communist Chinese military company”, putting it on a blacklist that means US companies and investors are going to be prohibited from investing in Xiaomi (and those who already have are to divest by November of this year). This, mind you, is not the same ‘blacklisting’ that destroyed Huawei’s smartphone market share worldwide, that’s a much more complex ban on any US companies, or even companies using US technology, doing business with Huawei. Today Xiaomi has issued the following statement on the matter: The company has been in…

There’s no question that self-emptying is an awesome convenience feature, but it’s still not exactly what we would call a must-have feature for everyone. Yes, it’s great to only have to empty your dust bin once every few weeks instead of doing it after each time your robot vacuum runs. But taking 60 seconds to empty a dust bin a few times each week is still way better than having to vacuum the floors yourself.
