iMessage’s RCS support: Apple’s big PR win

Apple surprised everyone a few months ago when it announced that the Messages app would support RCS in addition to iMessage and SMS.

It wasn’t Google applying pressure or the EU’s new Digital Markets Act (DMA) law…

That means that multiple design elements of the folding device are coming together, suggesting that that phase of the folding project is nearing completion and that Apple is beginning to think about mass production.

Tangerine: The Indie darling shot on iPhone that showed the world Apple’s mobile is more than just a smartphone, it’s a great camera

There’s a healthy amount of skepticism to the term ‘Shot on iPhone.' Like last year’s “Get Him Back” from Olivia Rodrigo, this not only meant it was filmed on an iPhone 15 Pro Max but post-treated by a professional and edited in complex ways. Though it’s an impressive showcase of what the iPhone can do, one of the best uses of an iPhone camera in a more lifelike way is a small indie film named Tangerine which released almost a decade ago. Unlike the music video above, which has multiple versions of Olivia Rodrigo set…

What Samsung can learn from Apple’s Vision Pro disappointments

The long-awaited foldable iPhone may be further away than otherwise thought, but there’s a silver lining that may come in the form of a tablet. As reported by Digitimes, Taiwan-based sources say “Apple has been developing foldables for the past five years, and its first foldable product will not be a smartphone.
