Apple has made a name for itself for a variety of reasons over the years. Top-tier devices and software. Burgeoning services. And also being ridiculously tough behind-the-scenes.
Samsung has, without a doubt, announced one of the most exciting smartphone products in a long while today (oh, and also the new Galaxy S10 lineup). But it has also introduced a price tag as a huge gatekeeper.
In June, it will be three years since Apple announced Siri for macOS. And I realized recently that I’ve used the digital assistant on my laptop maybe three times in total since then.
A question of whether or not Apple is too powerful has cropped up recently, especially as it relates to its own digital storefront.
There is a bit of tug of war happening for Apple right now. The company says the iPhone XS, and especially the iPhone XR, are popular. However, it also admits not enough people upgraded to those popular devices in 2018.
It feels like forever ago that Microsoft had a viable option in the smartphone wars, but that time is officially coming to an end.
After ditching the Lightning port and switching to USB-C for its 2018 iPad Pro lineup, Apple is reportedly also considering switching to USB-C for its 2019 iPhone lineup. But are you ready to give up on your Lightning accessories and welcome USB-C?
Apple wasn’t the first company to launch a smartphone with a notch, but the company definitely brought all of the attention to the design philosophy. As a result, we saw a lot of different phones with their own take on the notch.
Apple ended up having a bit of a rough end to its 2018. Unfortunately for the company, the start of 2019 hasn’t been all rainbows and butterflies, either.
The year-in-reviews are flooding in (unless you are an Apple Music subscriber and don’t use a separate app!), along with looking back at all the things the company launched over the last 12 months.
