Twelve South has debuted StayGo Mini, a smaller, pocketable version of its USB-C hub that brings back your old ports and helps tidy up messy workspaces whilst keeping you connected when you're working from home.
The European Union's European Commission has had its sighs set on a standard mobile phone charger for quite some time. And yet, nothing has come of it. But this time might be different. We first heard about these most recent plans in January of last year, and now it looks like the EU is finally ready to start legislating.
Some of the claimed iPad mini 6 features will reportedly include Apple's unreleased A15 chip, with better connectivity via USB-C and Smart Connector support also part of the package.
Apple recently outfitted some of the Mac notebooks with its own M1 laptop chip, with more substantial changes to the lineup expected later in 2021 and beyond. In a new report filed with Bloomberg this morning, reporter Mark Gurman casts a spotlight on the next MacBook Air.
Accessory vendor Plugable today released the latest addition to its Thunderbolt 3 docking station lineup. The cryptically named TBT3-UDC3 maximizes performance and keeps workflow running smoothly with a compelling 100W of power delivery while also incorporating a pair of USB-C ports for easy data transfer, two video outs, a bunch of legacy ports and more.
Apple has now confirmed that its discontinued 29W USB-C power adapter is not compatible with the new MagSafe Duo charger.
If you need a powerful Thunderbolt 3 dock for your Apple computers, look no further than Plugable's new baby. Today, the company released its new TBT3-UDZ Thunderbolt 3 docking station that has a whopping 14 ports and provides 96W of power delivery. On top of that, the dock sports backward and forward compatibility from USB-C to USB4 and Thunderbolt 4.
The fact that Apple's new $39 MagSafe wireless charger currently works full speed on the new iPhone 12 if used with the company's new 20W power adapter, sold separately, had doubters crying foul, saying it's an artificial limitation to force users to buy new chargers from Apple.
Want to fast-charge your iPhone 12 with Apple's discontinued 18W power adapter that you previously used for fast-changing your older iPhone? Not so fast — that 18W charger that came in the box with your iPhone 11/iPad Pro won't fast-charge the latest iPhone 12 lineup. For that, you'll need Apple's new 20W charger which must be purchased separately for $19 a pop.
If you want to charge your iPhone 12 full speed via Apple's new MagSafe wireless charger, you'll need to run out and buy the company's new 20-watt USB-C charger because higher-wattage Apple chargers and third-party options currently don’t perform quite well.
Apple's new MagSafe charger for the iPhone 12 family doubles the wireless charging speed but is still slower compared to the wired solution. Concretely, the Wall Street Journal's Joana Stern found out in her video review of the new iPhones that the magnetic charger charges an iPhone 12 more than 2x slower than a 20-Watt USB-C charger with fast-charge support.
Apple removed the power adapter and wired EarPods from the iPhone's box, so you may need to get a new power adapter to match the USB-C to Lightning cable coming with the iPhone 12 lineup.
