This tweak puts a free RAM indicator in the iPhone X’s Status Bar

The iPhone X’s notch compelled Apple’s to redesign the handset’s Status Bar to make the best use possible of the free space available. The result doesn’t look that bad, but software tinkerers in the jailbreak community always find ways to improve trivial things of this nature.

A prime example is a new free jailbreak tweak called FreeRAMUnderTimeX by iOS developer i4M1k0SU. Just as the name suggests, this tweak displays the amount of free RAM you have right under the time indicator in the iPhone X’s Status Bar.

WWDC 2018

Are the keys on your MacBook Pro falling off? Has your first-generation iPad Air slowed to a halt? If you were hoping to see new hardware products revealed at next week's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), you might be out of luck, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

Are USB Type-C advancements making the standard more feasible?

It wasn’t long ago that I shared my thoughts about why the USB Type-C standard wasn’t perfect yet, but some vital, forward-thinking milestones have started trickling their way down the manufacturing lines, and it smells like progress.

While many USB Type-C cables continue to display limitations regarding data speed, power delivery, or both, some brands are making a difference by offering the best of both worlds. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t quite say the standard is perfect yet.

USB Type-C is great, but the standard isn’t perfect yet

USB Type-C is a forward-thinking I/O standard that aims to bundle both ease of use and versatility in one universal package. Not only is it becoming popular in the mobile device market, but it’s also finding its way to the game console and portable notebook markets among others.

If you own any of Apple’s new MacBooks or MacBook Pros, then you’re likely already accustomed to the USB-C life. While it takes a little bit of getting used to at first, it can be a smooth transition after some time. Nevertheless, I have a beef with the USB-C standard; at least in its current form.

Is the iPhone 8 worth the upgrade from the iPhone 7?

There’s undoubtedly a lot of hype for Apple's new iPhone X, but if you’re looking to save some money and get the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus instead, then you’re probably interested in how it compares to the previous generation model and whether it's worth the upgrade.

There’s bound to be some confusion about some of the most important specs between the devices, so in this piece, we’ll talk about the differences in weight, dimensions, and battery life as we do every year.

On September 12, 2017, Apple unveiled an essential upgrade from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that the company dubs the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The two new handsets bring hardware and cosmetic upgrades to the current iPhone lineup. An all-glass front and rear that are reminiscent of the days of the iPhone 4/4s are standard in all three colors. Apart from that, the bodies look and feel a lot like the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus you might already use, but with a few minor tweaks.

My favorite iPad stand is getting an upgrade

On November 27, 2013, I gave a gushing review of the MiStand, where I claimed the stand was "my new go-to dock, with a small simple and highly functional design." Today, I am still confident in that claim, as the MiStand has not left my kitchen counter since that initial review almost four full years ago. I use it regularly to hold my iPad, while working in the kitchen, watching videos or FaceTiming family. Consequently, I was very excited to learn about MiStand+, which is currently raising funds via Indiegogo for an upgraded version.
