Spotify’s Official Apple Watch App Is On Its Way—And Missing Key Features

One of the big selling points of smartwatches is the ability to control apps without needing to pull out your phone. However, due to the absence of an official Apple Watch app, adjusting music in Spotify using Apple’s smartwatch always felt kind of clunky. Now that’s changing.

Maybe People Like the Home Button

Remember how tech bloggers seemed so jazzed about the iPhone XR because it was like the very expensive iPhone XS but incredibly cheaper? It looks like the public is not as jazzed. Nikkei Asian Review reports that Apple has cancelled a production boost for the iPhone XR, which is apparently not selling as well as the company had originally anticipated. The iPhone 8, however, is selling better than expected. Maybe people like the Home button! Read More >>

Sorry, But Your iPhone 5 Just Became Obsolete

Sometime in the flurry of news surrounding the new iPad Pro and the new MacBook Air, Apple quietly added the iPhone 5 to its list of “vintage and obsolete products” in the United States. There it sits, alongside the Apple III, the Newton MessagePad, and the first four generations of iPhone, as a thing that Apple officially no longer repairs or updates. The iPhone 5 is effectively dead in America, and the rest of Apple’s small-hands phones aren’t far behind. Read More >>

The Tricky Economics of the iPhone XS and the iPhone XR

The iPhone XR hits stores on Friday, and everybody is flipping out about it being the most affordable new iPhone. Starting at £750, however, the XR isn’t actually that much cheap in the grander scheme of things. And yet, to the casual observer, the device also looks a heck of a lot like the undeniably expensive iPhone XS, which starts at £1,000. But deciding between the two new iPhone models isn’t quite the £250 proposition it seems to be. Read More >>

The iPhone XR Is Apple’s New Real Big Deal

Apple does not typically do budget devices, but as they go, the iPhone XR comes pretty close. While hardly cheap (a budget phone should be under £400, not £750!), it represents a calculated attempt at creating a more affordable device that isn’t a tremendous compromise. Something powerful enough that you can enjoy the perks of having the latest tech, without having to spend top dollar. And that’s an extremely big deal, especially if spending $1000 on a phone feels like too much for you. Read More >>

Did the Release of the iPhone Cause Millennials to Move Back in With Their Parents?

American cartoonist Scott Adams recently posted an interesting question to Twitter. Adams shared a graph showing that the percentage of people between the age of 18 and 34 who live with their parents skyrocketed after 2008. Adams tweeted, “The iPhone was launched in 2007. Is it a coincidence?” The implication, of course, is that people are spending all their money on technology instead of buying home or renting. But how reasonable is this theory? Read More >>

Major Complaints About the iPhone XS Are Stacking Up

It wouldn’t be an iPhone launch without a small army of hand-wringing Apple fans complaining about their expensive new phones on the internet.

Some iPhone XS and XS Max Devices Won’t Charge if You Plug in While the Screen is Off

iPhone launches wouldn't be iPhone launches if the devices ran as they were supposed to, and didn't have any annoying glitches that needed to be ironed out. It's a time honoured tradition, and it seems the launch of the iPhone XS and XS Max is no different. This time everyone is charging their phones wrong, because it seems there are quite a few devices that won't start recharging if you plug in a lightning cable while the screen is switched off.

The iPhone XS Is Forever

I’m sick of buying iPhones. For the past decade, I’ve been buying them and loving them and breaking them and losing them and replacing them and, when September comes along, upgrading them. Last year, it cost me over £1,000 to get an iPhone X, and against my better judgement, I’m very seriously considering spending another grand to get the iPhone XS. Read More >>
