The KEY2 LE has many of the same features found on the higher priced KEY2, but enough corners have been cut to allow the device to be sold close to $200 cheaper at $449.99. While this is a GSM device, which means that it works on AT&T and T-Mobile, surprisingly it does also work with Verizon.
In case the specs have escaped your mind, the BlackBerry KEY2 LE features a 4.5-inch LCD display with a 1080 x 1620 resolution. The Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform is under the hood along with 4GB of RAM ...

Leave the unit unconnected from a charging cable and let it air out for approximately one week."

Apple now offers a USB-C to headphone jack dongle for the new iPad Pro

Three years after removing the popular feature from its smartphone lineup, Apple today unveiled a brand-new pair of iPad Pro models that, rather unsurprisingly, lack headphone jacks.

Due to this decision, Apple has added a new USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack dongle to its online store at a cost of $9. However, users shouldn’t count on receiving one free in the box. After all, the Cupertino-based company quietly removed all headphone dongles from its iPhone boxes last month and the new iPad Pros are no different. This means that those of you who wish to use wired headphones will need to ...

When it comes to iPhones, Apple commands $329 for an iPhone XS Max screen replacement, while any other out-of-warranty damage will set consumers back a whopping $599. This figure matches the cost of repairs for the first and second gen 12.9-inch iPad Pro. But today, following the announcement of the third-generation ...

Apple pushes out both iOS 12.1 and watchOS 5.1 adding several new features for both

Image
As expected, Apple released iOS 12.1 today, adding several new features to the company's mobile operating system. Among them are Group FaceTime, which supports up to a 32-way group video chat on models ranging from the Apple iPhone 6s to the new 2018 iPhones. Older models from the iPhone 5s to the iPhone 6 will be able to make Group FaceTime audio calls. Additionally, 70 new emoji are supported in the new iOS build.

The Apple Watch Series 4's ECG feature is now available to US users

Image
The Apple Watch Series 4
Since the release of the original Apple Watch back in 2015, Apple has continued to bake health and fitness related features into its popular wearables line. However, with this year’s Series 4 model, this reached a whole new level with the new electrocardiogram (ECG) feature.
Prior to announcing the Series 4 models, Apple was granted approval by the FDA which essentially makes the watch the first ECG wearable on the market. The company did confirm that the feature wouldn’t be available immediately but did promise ...

Apple's new iPads can charge your iPhone

Image
Your iPhone's battery is running low? Well, that shouldn't be a problem with the new iPad Pro 11" and 12.9" slates, which can charge your iPhone in a jiffy.

Of course, this would only work if you have one of them USB Type-C to Lightning cables lying around. Oh, you missed the news? The new iPads are equipped with USB Type-C ports, hinting that next year's iPhones might also make this important switch.

This is the first time Apple has allowed its tablets to reverse-power other devices, and the reason for that is simple -  this ...

Your dual SIM iPhone is still not fully compatible with Verizon and T-Mobile

Image
Along with a game-changing new pair of iPad Pros, the iOS 12.1 update is rolling out today, bringing quite a few important add-ons to the table for a “point” software release. As far as iPhone XS, XS Max, and iPhone XR users are concerned, eSIM activation for dual SIM support may well be the most exciting new feature.
While dual SIM technology is hardly a revolutionary thing, the eSIM (embedded SIM) method of adding a secondary, virtual SIM card has yet to catch on. That’s due to carriers like Verizon not coordinating with Apple to properly implement the forward-thinking functionality, ...

Apple's custom engrave option is now available for the new Apple Pencil

Image
The second-generation Apple Pencil
While not compatible with iPhones, Apple’s custom engraving option has been available to customers who purchase an iPod Touch or any iPad model for a number of years now, as long as the device is bought through the Apple Store. But after today’s hardware event, the Cupertino giant quietly added the feature to one accessory.
Moving forward, anybody interested in the second-generation Apple Pencil can choose to engrave it with a short, custom message that sits just below the Apple accessory's branding ...

Apple's new A12X Bionic is the most powerful mobile chipset to date

Image
As part of its iPad Pro (2018) introduction today, Apple announced that the chipset powering its newest tablet computers is the A12X Bionic, and to those following mobile tech in general, this means one thing: this is the fastest mobile processor ever created. The current leader is the A12 Bionic found in the just recently released iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR, and that one is already quite the little beast, so how much further is the A12X going to take things when the new iPad Pro 11" and 12.9" (2018) launch next week?
Apple has not released specific numbers when it ...

Apple's new iPad Pro 2018 with USB-C will charge faster with the new brick in the box

Image
Apple is slowly beginning to improve the fast charging situation of its gadgets. No, we aren't talking about the iPhones - these still come with a 5W charger in their boxes, and fast-charging will run you $68 extra if you want to get Apple's official 30W charger plus its proprietary USB-PD cable.
What we mean now is that the new iPad Pro which has a standard-fare USB-C connector (praise the charging gods!) is wrapped together with a more powerful 18W charger, compared to the 12W brick that iPads sported until now. This is probably the same 18W charger that a Chinese ...

iPad Pro 11"/12.9" vs Galaxy Tab S4 vs Google Pixel Slate: Specs comparison

Image
Apple just announced two new iPads that are not only some of the fastest mobile devices in existence, but also overhaul the old-and-tried iPad design that was generally left unchanged for years. Gone is the home button, enlarged is the screen, and the slate as a whole has been thinned-down to ludicrous extent to achieve a super-sleek footprint.
Design aside, the new iPads are truly hardware beasts in the most sincere definition of the word: powered by the Apple A12X Bionic chip, which is pushing the limits of the already super-fast A12 even further, the new slates ...

Apple to add more "Today at Apple" classes next year

"Today at Apple" is a program started last year that offers free lessons and workshops at the 505 Apple Stores worldwide, teaching those with Apple products how to fully maximize all of the things that their devices are capable of doing. For example, some workshops for iPhone users will teach them all of the tricks available to take outstanding photographs.

First Metro, Cricket and Straight Talk network speed tests hint why their plans come cheaper

Image
Hot on the heels of the P3 engineering consultancy group testing Verizon's network as the best overall performer in the US, now comes another top score for Big Red, this time from Tutela.

The firm does crowdsourced network testing, but not with a single speed-measuring app, but rather in partnership with popular app developers. Thus, its testing software works in the background to gauge loading and latency performance of apps that the test subjects use every day, relaying a real-life performance indicator, rather than an isolated speed score.
