iphone 12 mini and iphone 12: six ways they’re more ‘pro’ than you think

It took a little longer than usual, but the iPhone 12 is finally here. And just like we expected, there are four phones this year, with Apple adding a new ‘mini’ model to the lower-end of the line-up. But even with an extra option, the choice of which one to buy might not be so difficult this year. That’s because the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are closer than ever to the higher-priced Pro models that cost hundreds more. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini might not have all the same features, but when you break down the differences between the standard and Pro lines, they’re a lot closer than you’d think. Here are the surprising iPhone 12 features that make the baseline iPhones a lot more pro. 1. THEY…

magsafe enables a whole new charging and accessory ecosystem

Remember MagSafe? The beloved charging plug for MacBooks was given the boot when Apple moved to USB-C charging, but the company just brought it back as a new standard for iPhone charging and accessories. With a ring of magnets around a new charging coil design, along with improved shielding and NFC, you can sort of ‘snap’ the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro to a new MagSafe wireless charger, just like you do with the Apple Watch. The more precise alignment and improved internal components allow for faster charging – up to 15 watts instead of 7.5 on earlier iPhones. That’s about as fast as charging previous iPhones plugged in! This doesn’t make existing Qi chargers are useless. The new iPhones still support existing Qi-enabled wireless charging at rates up to 7.5 watts,…

review: ipad (2020)

Price: £329 (inc VAT) from fave.co/3jBr5Y3 The new iPad was comprehensively outshone by the new iPad Air at Apple’s Time Flies event on 15 September, offering only a dull (albeit significant) spec bump while its costlier sibling got a redesign and raft of new features. But the Air isn’t ready to buy yet, so while we wait for the big show, here’s the warm-up act. What Apple is calling the eighth-generation iPad is in almost every respect the same as the 10.2in iPad Apple launched in 2019. It differs only in having a processor that’s two generations newer – thereby promising a handy boost in speed – and being very slightly heavier. Is that enough to justify the cost? Almost certainly not if you’re thinking of upgrading from the 2019 to 2020 models.…

the new ipad air is great news for the ipad pro

i Pad Pro, you’re on the clock. Last month’s announcement of the new iPad Air continues Apple’s aggressive importation of iPad Pro features into the lower ends of the iPad product line. But it also brings the £579 iPad Air surprisingly close to the £769 iPad Pro in numerous ways – perhaps too close for comfort. That’s why the announcements are great for the iPad product line in two ways. Not only is there a cheaper, more powerful iPad with a bunch of features that were previously limited to the highest-end models, but it’s now clear that Apple will need to supply new high-end features to the iPad Pro in short order. PRO FEATURES MIGRATE FAST There was a time when Apple had a real iPad problem. Sales were lagging from their initial…

expressvpn

Price: £5.36 per month (inc VAT) from fave.co/34CjVwf It’s impressive how much ExpressVPN packs into its service. In addition to supporting the usual VPN connections across nearly 100 countries, ExpressVPN supports Smart DNS on consoles and set-top boxes – a great feature for anyone working abroad. It has a built-in speed test to help you make better decisions about which connections to use – if speed is your priority. The company is also working on trust with diskless servers, and it underwent a security audit from PwC. It’s moving in the right direction, but how does it measure up overall? SECURITY, SOFTWARE, SERVERS, AND SPEED ExpressVPN is based in the British Virgin Islands. The company says it’s doing this to remain outside of the ‘14 Eyes’ group of countries that includes the United States, Canada…

how apple could improve its services experience

Services: they’re so hot right now. Earlier this year, Apple beat its self-stated goal of doubling Services revenue in 2020 with time to spare, and the company has not only recently announced that it will be launching a new service, Apple Fitness+, but also finally elected to offer a competitively priced bundle of its many services to consumers. With all of that said, there are some elements of Apple’s services that are still a bit lacklustre, and more than a few of them are parts of the very systems on which the company and its users rely. In the same way that you might want to look to patching a foundation before worrying about painting the walls, there are a few places where Apple might want to shore up its fundamentals…
