When iCloud works, it’s great. And, for the most part, that’s how it is. But sometimes…it just gets plain wonky. Several of you had several questions about that this week, and Dave and John dig in to get you sorted! That’s not all, though. Cool Stuff Found, routers, and even some future stuff is all up for discussion when your two favorite geeks get together this week. Press play and enjoy learning at least five new things!
New rumors suggest that 2020 Apple Watch models could get microLED screens, moving away from its current OLED display.
Switching from OLED to microLED is expected to bring miniaturization and battery life longevity improvements, as microLED pixels are more power-efficient. microLED panels are also less susceptible to burn-in artifacts compared to OLED.
Charlotte Henry and John Martellaro join host Kelly Guimont to talk about display technology in Apple devices, and an “entry level” iPhone.
In the process of writing about Samsung’s 2019 TVs, sizes and prices, CNET’s David Katzmaier also explains the difference between Samsung’s QLED TVs and the OLED technology from other makers. It’s an important distinction. The key is the ever so geeky Quantum Dots. (Image credit: Samsung.)
Every year at CES one of my favorite things is to visit the Central Hall to see all the new TV technology. This year LG again won my vote for most impressive display (no pun intended!) with its array of curved OLED screens. Showing a rotating series of nature videos, this array of curved displays was both immersive and astounding. The video doesn’t do it justice, of course, but it’s worth a quick look just to get an idea of what the future looks like. Enjoy!
Reports are surfacing that LG has begun producing 400,000 OLED panels for Apple, most likely for the company’s OLED iPhone XS product line.
Insider sources say the 2018 iPhone line could see shipments between 70 million and 75 million by year’s end, in line with the iPhone 6 record breaking launch.
A deep look at macOS Mojave reveals that there’s a lot going on. It represents a genuine Mac makeover.
Apple is reportedly transitioning away from LCD for all iPhone display panels in favor of OLED.
Get ready for a foldable iPhone, because that’s exactly what one analyst says is coming in 2020.
John Martellaro and Bryan Chaffin join Jeff Gamet to talk about the perception that iPhone X sales are tanking, plus they explain Siri’s hierarchy in deciding when it should respond from your iPhone, iPad, or HomePod.
Bryan Chaffin says he’s a wee bit confused by this story: on the one hand, Apple says iPhone X is the top selling smartphone week in and week out, and on the other, everyone else keeps talking about Apple slashing orders due to “weak demand.”
LAS VEGAS – Every year at CES I make it a point to pass through the Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central Hall at least once just to see the spectacle of new TVs on display. Each year, all the big manufacturers try to out-do one another (including renting booth space under dummy company names and expanding last-minute) just to create the most impressive display. This year, for me, LG’s OLED TV tunnel was a perfect entrance to the mayhem. Thankfully, I got there before the power went out, but that’s another story for another time. For now, just enjoy my tour through the LG tunnel.
The results show that Apple’s work to decrease OLED burn have paid off.
Here’s what John thinks of his new iPhone X.
Redditors are complaining about their iPhone X screens becoming unresponsive in cold weather and Apple says it plans to address the issue with a software update.
Dave Hamilton and Jeff Gamet share their thoughts on the iPhone X after spending a weekend with Apple’s new smartphone.
If you’re hoping to get your hands on an iPhone 8 before October get ready to be disappointed.
Apple’s iPhone 8 could cost upwards of $1,000 and that’s thanks in part to the heft price Samsung is charging for its OLED screen.
