    Apple sells refurbished iPhone X models for $ 769

        Now Apple sells a refurbished iPhone X, and prices start at $ 769 for a 64 GB model. If you need a 256 GB configuration, it will cost you $ 899. This is less than what you pay for a new iPhone XS, and it can be a good option if you are happy with how the 5.8-inch display feels in your hand. The iPhone X is smaller than the iPhone XR, although it is still more expensive even in a renovated condition. The XR starts at $ 749, and for most it’s a more reasonable purchase. The iPhone X

    Apple Releases iOS 12.1.4 to Fix FaceTime Group Security Vulnerability

        Today, Apple is releasing iOS 12.1.4 to fix a security breach in the company's FaceTime feature. An error found last week allowed someone to call a phone or Mac and listen in before another person picked up the phone. Apple fixed a mistake that allowed you to join the FaceTime call before the recipient picked up the phone by tricking FaceTime, regarding it as an active call. Apple quickly disabled the server-side Group FaceTime feature to prevent people from using this flaw after

    Apple's next iPad mini is reportedly not much different.

        Four years after the release of the iPad mini 4, Apple may finally be close to the release of a successor, according to new reports from Mac Otakara and DigiTimes (via MacRumors). They are not the only ones who expect to return from a miniature Apple tablet. Last month, Bloomberg also announced that we can see the updated iPad mini this year, and this is further confirmed by the mention of the iPad in iOS 12.2. However, despite the events that we saw on the standard iPad and iPad

    New iPhones will be connected to Lightning via USB-C

        According to the Mac Otakara report (via 9to5Mac), Apple's iPhone 2019 models will be equipped with a Lightning connector, not a USB-C port. Previous reports said that Apple had tested "some versions” of this year’s USB-C phone. Last year, Macotakara, which has links to both the Asian supply chain and Asian accessory manufacturers, successfully predicted that the 2018 iPad Pro will drop Lightning in favor of USB-C. The Macotakara report also states that this year’s phones will

    Microsoft Surface business grows just like Windows faces Chromebook competition

        Today, Microsoft released financial results for the second quarter of 2019, reporting revenue of $ 32.5 billion and net profit of $ 8.4 billion. Surface and games have grown, but revenues from Windows licenses have declined. While Surface's revenue grew by only 1 percent in the same quarter last year, it grew by 39 percent this year to 1.86 billion dollars. The big leap is not entirely surprising, since Microsoft released its Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 during the last

    Divinity: The Original Sin II Port for Mac is Uncommonly Good

        When you think about the weaknesses of the Mac platform, a couple of obvious areas come to mind. One is undoubtedly gaming. Despite the fact that Steam appeared on Mac in 2010, Windows remains in first place in terms of the number of games released. Games that come up on macOS often work better when loaded on Windows on the same machine. Another disadvantage is Apple's inflexible hardware strategy, as the company often uses pedestrian GPUs and unpopular experiments, such as the

    Xbox One gamepads cost $ 20 and make them great switch controllers

        Microsoft controllers for Xbox One cost $ 37.17 at Walmart and Amazon. This is more than $ 20 off their regular price and just a few dollars below the lowest price we have ever seen. Moreover, this discount is available for a newer model, which can also connect to devices other than the Xbox via Bluetooth and has a 3.5mm headphone jack for private listening. This is a good deal if you need a new controller for the Xbox One, and this is a reasonable investment if you play on other

    The change of games finally got the right voice chat thanks to Vivox

        Nintendo has the infamous Switch Voice Chat system, which requires most gamers to use a separate smartphone application to actually chat with friends on the Internet, which leads to horrible, hacked solutions, such as the Hori headphone splitter, just for work. But today everything is changing, thanks to Vivox, which provides its own voice and text chat system to all Nintendo Switch developers with the new SDK. You may not have heard about Vivox directly, but you may have used it

    EA says Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will come out this fall

        Electronic Arts said today that its next Star Wars game, to be called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, will come out this fall. The company had previously set 2019 as the release window for the story-focused game, which is in development with EA-owned studio and Titanfall creator Respawn Entertainment. But we haven’t gotten anything more concrete until EA disclosed the fall deadline in its quarterly earnings announcement this afternoon. Given recent news that EA scrapped its

    Original Crackdown Free on Xbox One

      To raise the hype about the release of Crackdown 3 on February 15 (and as a consolation gift that keeps gamers waiting so long), Microsoft makes the original Crackdown free for all Xbox One owners. The game, which was first launched on Xbox 360 in 2007, is backward compatible with Xbox One S and Xbox One X. If Crackdown is your first foray into the series, this is a good place to start. Although his mission design and dialogue with the NPC are not too old, you still get at least a few
