Earlier today, Apple officially unveiled the next major software updates for its platforms at this year's WWDC. It shouldn't surprise anyone that a large range of Apple's devices support updating to the upcoming updates. So you can find a list below of the supported devices that will be updated later this year.
iPhone XS Max
If you feel like you should jump ship from your current wireless carrier, Verizon might have an option for you with a familiar brand name.
During a recent episode of our podcast, I mentioned that I had overslept that morning due to my iPhone 11 Pro turning itself off overnight. It was positioned perfectly on a wireless charger, with plenty of battery left over from the day before, and it had absolutely no water damage or any other notable hardware concerns. It simply turned itself off, and wouldn't turn back on.
As it turns out, this is just one of those things that happens sometimes to iPhone models X and newer. Luckily, after some stringent googling, I was able to work out an easy fix for it. So I thought it would be helpful if I shared that fix here on iDB in case you are ever unlucky enough to come across this weird bug.
Apple has launched a replacement program for some Smart Battery Cases made for the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. Under the terms of the program Apple will replace eligible battery cases free of charge.
T-Mobile has supported the eSIM in the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR right out of the gate, but only for prepaid plans. That's finally changing.
InvisibleShield, a Zagg-owned glass protector brand, just launched a new line of screen protection for Apple's iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max with infused antimicrobial properties that help reduce up to 99.99 percent of harmful bacteria from smartphone screens.
A recent report outlined how Apple is essentially "locking" some iPhone batteries in an effort to reduce third-party replacements. Apple has now officially responded to that report, saying it's all about the consumer.
Apple is not a big fan of user-replaced pieces within its devices. The company has long fought against the "Right to Repair", and this latest move to do just that may irk some users out there.
Accessory maker Mophie today launched a new Juice Pack Air battery case with Qi wireless charging for Apple's latest iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR smartphones.
It has been several months since Apple launched the iPhone XR, and despite the fact new iPhones are on the way, the less expensive iPhone is still doing very well for itself.
Coming in a variety of color options, this versatile battery case from Mophie protects your iPhone while giving you extra battery power when you need it with a simple push of a button. Moreover, it leaves the Lightning port exposed so you can use your wired headphones or Lightning-based accessories while Juice Pack Access is wirelessly charging the handset.
Love it or hate it, most of Apple’s modern-day mobile devices come standard with a top-of-display notch that houses the TrueDepth camera system used by Face ID for biometric authentication and for selfie images. Now that the notch has become the norm, the best thing you can do is embrace it; but why not go a step further and expand it?
NotchControl is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer PeterDev that builds upon the notch’s native aesthetics and functionality. With it, you can incorporate new controls and information displays into the notch, such as things that pertain to music, time, or weather.
