Have you had enough of the notch at a time when Android handsets with hole-punch displays proliferate? If so, this year's iPhone could finally bring us what we really want: a smaller notch.
While some folks may still prefer Touch ID, it's hard to argue that Apple doesn't trust Face ID to be the go-to biometric security option for devices like the iPhone and iPad. But what about the Mac?
Apple has updated its free video editing app for iOS Clips with support for Memoji and Animoji, Mickey and Minnie Mouse stickers and a new winter-themed poster. The new content is available in the new 2.1 version available for download from the App Store.
Respected supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with TF International Securities shared some interesting observations regarding 2019 and 2020 iPhone models in a note to clients today.
It's official. Apple is planning to release the iOS 12.1 update on Tuesday, Oct. 30. Available for iPhone and iPad, the update includes Group Facetime and over 70 new emoji and arrives on the same day Apple's holding its "There's more in the making" event in Brooklyn, New York.
In a new research note issued to clients this morning, respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has expressed his belief that the Cupertino technology firm won't integrate an infrared depth-sensing system on the rear of new iPhones due in 2019, citing two reasons.
eBay has announced a new open source technology that could make it easier for people with motor impairments to shop or move around apps. HeadGaze uses Apple's TrueDepth camera alongside Apple ARKit to allow you to navigate an app using your head motion.
Fingerprint on display technology was once expected to launch on the iPhone X in 2017. Instead, Face ID was introduced to replace Touch ID on Apple's current flagship device. Apple's embrace of Face ID isn't expected to end anytime soon, according to one crucial analyst, despite the push by others to begin using the new fingerprint technology.
An Apple developer has discovered code in the latest iOS 12 beta that suggests an all-new iPad Pro is coming which features Face ID and a True Depth camera. Steve Troughton-Smith notes that AvatarKit, which Apple uses to operate its Animoji and upcoming Memoji on the iPhone X, has been altered to support an iPad-size screen.
In his Twitter posting, Troughton-Smith notes, "New in iOS 12: AvatarKit comes to iPad. Still requires a TrueDepth camera to do face tracking, though, i.e. an iPad with Face ID."
We're just two months away from Apple's fall event, which is typically held in mid-September. While most expect Cupertino to announce three new iPhones, things have been a little bit murky on the iPad Pro rumor front.
The 10.5-inch iPad Pro and second-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro were both announced in June 2017. Since then, we've heard very little about the next-generation devices.
Way back in November, Bloomberg reported that the 2018 iPad Pro lineup would feature a revamped design with slimmer top and bottom bezels, a faster processor, and use a TrueDepth camera and Face ID. That same report said a second-generation Apple Pencil stylus would also be arriving with this year's iPad Pro models.
Soon after, another report said Apple and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) were developing a next-generation mobile chip that would make its debut in an upcoming iPad Pro revision.
According to the report from Chinese outlet MyDrivers, the chip was tentatively named “A11X Bionic.” Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone X feature A11 Bionic chips.

Besides new iOS devices, the unannounced Apple fall event could also see the introduction of new Macs, a fourth-generation Apple Watch, and more. Stay tuned.
Apple's own online and offline stores, as well as third-party repair technicians, have been authorized to issue whole-unit replacements for iPhone X devices with reported Face ID problems that cannot be fixed by replacing the entire TrueDepth camera system.
