Apple’s AirPods Pro are just fantastic, especially if you hack them to fit your ears even better. But those interchangeable silicone tips are just one (or two) more thing to lose, or to break. The good news is, Apple will sell you replacement silicone tips for your AirPods Pro. The bad news is, you can’t just order them up from the Apple Store, or from Amazon.
It’s easy to mock smart toothbrushes, but most people don’t have very good dental hygiene. High-tech solutions like Colgate’s Plaqless Pro or Oral-B iO might be able to help by giving users feedback with an iPhone application.
Both toothbrushes were honored at CES 2020, with Colgate’s even earning the Best of Innovation award for Health and Beauty.
Jony Ive has been largely quiet since his departure from Apple was first confirmed back in June. But now Ive has resurfaced — through a charitable contribution to the Daily Mail newspaper’s orchard-planting campaign.
Ive, who was instrumental in placing trees into Apple Stores, has donated 100,000 British pounds ($131,000) to the paper’s Be A Tree Angel campaign. Ive’s contribution will enable 1,000 orchards to be planted in 1,000 schools across the U.K.
In macOS Catalina, iTunes has been replaced by separate apps, but none of those new apps takes on the tasks of syncing your music, books, photos and other data to your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. That responsibility now falls upon the Finder.
So, does this means you can plug in your iPad and drag and drop all your apps’ files between it and your Mac? Of course not. In fact, apart from this functionality now being in the Finder, not much has changed at all.
If the Mac Pro is more computer than you need but the Mac mini isn’t enough, Animaionic is right up your alley. This super-sized Mac mini dock upgrades Apple’s miniature desktop into a graphics behemoth.
Everyone should use a iPhone case, and everyone needs to carry a wallet. Consider combining those two necessities into the Mujjo Leather Wallet Case. This has been updated for the new iPhone 11 series, and it’s just as beautifully slim-but-practical as its predecessors.
I’ve used this wallet case for weeks. Learn how well it survived daily use in my full review.
Whether you’re buying for yourself or a friend or family member, there’s no shortage of great books about Apple. But with so many millions of words written about the Cupertino company over the years, which books most deserve your time?

The Option key (sometimes marked ⌥ on your Mac’s keyboard) offers you extra options, whether you’re using the keyboard or the mouse. Hold it down while dragging a file, for example, and it will create a duplicate of that file, instead of just moving it1. The Option key works everywhere — in menus, too. Today, we’re going to see what happens when you Option-click on the status menu icons up on the right side of your Mac’s menu bar. The Bluetooth, volume, Wi-Fi, Time Machine and Notification Center widgets, to be precise.
Option-clicking on these icons gives you far greater control of some of your Mac’s core functionality. You might be surprised at what you can do up there.
