Before we get into Apple’s Keynote announcement where they didn’t announce new Airpods or the elusive AirPower (because it’s indeed in the “air” at this point), let me just say that I plan on getting the iPhone Xs Max, the 512GB version, in Gold. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way… here we go.
The Apple Gather Round event is a wrap and while the company’s new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are impressive they are also expensive at $1,349 and $1,449 respectively for the highest capacity models.
Judie and I first met while we were guests on a podcast. I loved chatting with her and am grateful that I was able to begin writing for Gear Diary. Last week I was a guest on Pocketnow’s podcast PNWeekly. A longtime Pocketnow reader, I was excited. The conversation was lively and covered a lot of ground. Check it out.
In today’s world, data drives just about every facet of our lives. That’s to our advantage because data is objective and can paint a picture we can’t see with our subjective minds.
I’ve made a terrible mistake. See, I complain A LOT about Siri, because, well, she’s not the brightest AI assistant around. But she apparently has been listening in, and she’s been trying very hard to make my life miserable lately. Here are a few examples:
Apple’s absence from the smart speaker market is being corrected in early February with the release of the HomePod, but it won’t improve their fortunes in that market. It isn’t because HomePod is too expensive, or too late to the market, it’s because HomePod is handicapped by Siri. Sweet, but painfully useless Siri.
With the size of videos and photos nowadays, we may all have a time where the provided memory just is not enough. Naztech is addressing this issue with the Xtra Drive mini ($59.99). The device allows you to instantly save and transfer files using your iOS device’s Lightning Connector and up to 256GB Micro USB card.
Bose is a brand that’s name is recognizable almost anywhere you go. Mostly they are known for their over-ear headphones like the QuietComfort 35’s that we reviewed earlier this year, but one thing that was long desired from many fans of the company was a pair of Truly wireless in-Ear headphones.
If you absolutely hate the standard white version of the Airpods, or simply would like to match your new iPhone X or iPhone 8 accordingly, then you really need to order yours from Colorware.
One of the best features (other than Animoji) for the iPhone X, hands down, has to be the Wireless charging. Now sure, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus both have this compatibility as well, but no matter the device, you should take advantage of the functionality. And what better company to do it with besides RAVPower?
There are plenty of “Truly Wireless” earbuds on the market that you could chose from, many with half-baked features like fitness tracking and glowing lights, but what if you just want a great sounding pair of wireless earbuds? If this is the case, you need to purchase the YEVO 1 truly wireless earbuds, and here’s why.
If you were one of the lucky few to receive your iPhone X last week (or are waiting for it to arrive in the coming weeks), one thing that you might be inquiring about is if you should purchase AppleCare+, or a more affordable alternative. If this is the case, you should truly check out SquareTrade. SquareTrade is one of the most popular alternatives to Apple’s own $200 AppleCare+ program, but it also includes way more features that the average user wouldn’t get from Apple. The company actually put the latest iPhone X through its breakability test that it’s done…
Growing up in the 90’s one thing that filled up physical photo albums in my family were physical Polaroid photos. There’s something about being able to look at photos years later and get that nostalgic feeling turning pages that you can’t get just looking at your smartphone.
I’m a huge fan of my Apple Airpods. They’re small, light, and sound great for everyday use. But I wanted to differentiate myself from every other guy on the streets of New York City. Enter BlackPods, a New Jersey-based customization service that beautifully re-finishes those stark white AirPods Black.
The official release of iOS 11 won’t arrive until mid-day Tuesday, September 19. There is, however, a way to update your iPhone to the latest release of iOS now. This is the final shipping, aka Gold Master or GM, version which all eligible iPhone models will receive Tuesday.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you know September of every year is Apple’s month of showcasing their latest products, typically the newest iPhone and iPad. Well, 2017 is no different as the company announced a few new products, including the Apple iPhone X, which many were expecting.
Several years ago, Apple rolled out “two-step verification” to protect your Apple ID. It involved a trusted device, a password, and a recovery key you had to print and save. If you’re like me, you probably filed that key away and forgot it existed.
A few months ago I spoke on how my home is almost exclusively connected to Apple’s HomeKit, and with the recent addition of Koogeek’s P1 Smart Plug, my Smart Home has gotten that much more advanced.
The launch of the iPhone 7 in 2016 caused a stir for many reasons (same design, price hikes, no USB-C), but none seemed to annoy people more than the exclusion of a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
I have way too many cables lying around my apartment. Many of them should be thrown away because they have frayed, but many just honestly stopped working after three months for some unknown reason. Native Union sent over their new collection of cables that promise to be the non-fraying, unbreakable cords that will make me never need another cable again.
If you’ve been looking for a portable charger for your Apple Watch that is truly portable, look no further than Kanex GoPower Watch. The company sent us over a unit to check out and it’s already become our favorite accessory for Apple’s popular smartwatch.
