This year’s iPhone notch looks set to get a bit smaller, with the latest evidence for this being an image posted to Twitter by user DuanRui, who frequently posts material shared on Chinese social media.
While not guaranteed to be genuine, the image does depict an iPhone display with slimmer — in width, not height — notch. Apple introduced the distinctive iPhone notch in 2017 with the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge display. It contains the Face ID sensing tech, front camera, and speaker.
Sony fans know that one year of Playstation Plus costs $59.99. But what if you could get that and a lifetime of e-learning and VPN protection for an additional $9?

Apple’s market cap has climbed more than $13 billion this year alone, equal to the company’s entire net worth in mid-2004. But that’s still enough to make it an underperformer next to its tech titan peers.
In a Wednesday report, the Wall Street Journal notes that Apple has risen 1.3% in 2021 so far. That’s compared to an average of 16% for Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Google parent company Alphabet. It’s also way less than the 81% Apple soared in 2020.
April 14, 1986: The “low-cost” Macintosh 512Ke brings hardware upgrades — and a bit of confusion — to the low end of the Mac lineup.
The Mac 512Ke is an “enhanced” (hence the “e”) model of the Mac 512K. The upgrade addresses complaints that the original Mac lacked enough memory. The 512Ke adds a double-density 800k floppy drive and a 128k ROM to the Mac 512K formula.
The iPhone mini line looks unlikely to last longer than one more generation, based on a Wednesday report from reliable Apple tipster, TFI International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, as seen by Cult of Mac.
Looking forward to the 2022 iPhone, Kuo suggests Apple will continue its recent pattern of four models — although these will include a higher-end 6.7- and 6.1-inch iPhone, and a lower-end 6.7- and 6.1-inch iPhone.
The 5.4-inch iPhone sounds like it’ll be nowhere to be found.
In pictures, the Apple TV’s sleek Siri Remote looks like a total winner. In practice, it’s a bit of a disaster. Luckily, the fix is in: Elago’s inexpensive R4 Retro case makes the Siri Remote easier to use and harder to lose.
Plus, the silicone sleeve looks sporty and provides some protection to the surprisingly fragile Apple TV remote.
