Dhaka, Aug 15 (AP/UNB) - Federal safety officials have banned some Apple laptops from airline flights after Apple recalled the batteries because they could catch fire.
The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement Wednesday that it alerted airlines last month about the recall involving batteries for some Apple MacBook Pro laptops.
Under FAA policy, some potentially dangerous items including lithium batteries can't be carried on board or placed in checked baggage if they are under a safety recall. The item must be repaired, replaced or made safe by a manufacturer-approved method before going on a plane.
On its website, Apple says a "limited number" of 15-inch MacBook Pros sold mostly between September 2015 and February 2017 have batteries that might overheat and pose a fire risk. Apple says it's replacing affected batteries for free.
Dhaka, Aug 11 (UNB) - Don’t be surprised to see a triple-camera setup on the next-generation iPad Pro. The information comes from Japanese blog Mac Otakara, who sites a supplier within China. If true, the 2019 iPad Pro could get top-notch photography experience similar to the rumoured iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max.
As per the unconfirmed report, Apple is currently planning to release two iPad Pro models. The launch will take place in October at a separate hardware event. The big thing, of course, is a square-shaped camera module on the rear. This time though, there will be three cameras on the rear.
Just like the upcoming iPhone 11, the next-generation iPad Pro will have a primary lens, the secondary camera with a telephoto lens and the third lens will have a wide-angle lens. The triple camera setup on the iPad Pro’s rear would allow for better-augmented reality (AR) experience. And let’s not forget: Apple has been pushing Augmented reality (AR) gaming on the iPad so hard. So it makes perfect sense for Apple to add multiple camera lenses on the future models of iPad Pro.
Another purpose of releasing an iPad Pro with three rear-facing cameras is to bring the same level of photography experience one would usually get with the iPhone. It may seem like a bizarre decision, but the truth is that people do take pictures using their iPads. Samsung is another company that has recently added two rear-facing cameras on the flagship Galaxy Tab S6. It just shows that there is an increasing number of users who would want to see superior cameras on tablets.
The report also notes that a 10.2-inch iPad will have a dual-camera lens. The setup will be similar to what you get on the iPhone 11R, a sequel to the iPhone XR.
The new iPad Pro models and the sixth-generation non-pro iPad are rumoured to launch in October. Last year, Apple updated its iPad Pro lineup by launching two models: 12.9-inch and 11-inch. The new iPads may get released alongside the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
New York, Aug 8 (AP/UNB) — Samsung executives have long poked fun at rivals for ditching the headphone jack in smartphones. With the new Galaxy Note 10, the company will now be doing exactly the same thing.
The Note 10, announced Wednesday, squeezes in more battery power and other goodies, but at the cost of the familiar old jack. So now the company is doing an about-face and declaring that many people use wireless headphones anyway.
Samsung, which for years has pushed bigger and bigger displays, is also introducing a smaller version of the Note for those who think phones have just gotten too big.
The new Note models will come out Aug. 23. The main model is being called the Note 10 Plus and will have a display measuring 6.8 inches diagonally. Though the display is bigger, the overall size is about the same as last year's 6.4-inch Note 9. To accomplish that, Samsung shrank down even more of the bezel surrounding the display.
The smaller, 6.3-inch version will be called the Note 10 and will sell for almost $950, or $150 less than the Plus. It's designed for those who want the Note's signature stylus without its once-signature size.
"You hit a certain point where you can't get much bigger without being physically too large to hold," Technalysis Research analyst Bob O'Donnell said. "That's the challenge they are running into."
Hardware innovation in mobile devices has been slowing for years. Samsung is addressing that with a foldable model, with twice the display when unfolded. The Samsung Fold is coming in September after Samsung made a few design changes to address problems with reviewers' phones breaking.
Apple is expected to release new iPhones next month. A version that works with next-generation 5G cellular networks isn't expected. Samsung will have a 5G version of the Note 10 Plus starting at almost $1300.
The Note 10 Plus will have a 7.5% boost in battery capacity over the Note 9, though Samsung's high-end phones have already been promising all-day battery life. Samsung made no references to the headphone jack during its 70-minute announcement event in New York.
Samsung officials told reporters separately that while the 3.5-millimeter headphone jack might seem small, every smidgeon of saved space can help extend battery life. Samsung is including wired headphones that plug into the phone's USB-C data and charging port. An adapter for other wired headphones is sold separately for $10. Apple and Google also have ditched the standard headphone jack.
But O'Donnell noted the irony: "If you guys gave everybody else grief for doing it, why are you doing it?"
Beyond that, the Note 10 phones introduce new stylus features, including the ability to flip through music and photo libraries by gesturing with the stylus in the air. The phones bring a wider-angle lens already found in the S10 and use software to make audio appear louder — and thus closer — in video recordings when zooming in. And by connecting a Note 10 to a Windows or Mac computer with a USB cable, users can interact with phone apps there and drag and drop files between devices.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella appeared briefly to expand on a partnership with Samsung. The collaboration includes giving Note users the ability to receive and respond to text messages and take phone calls from a Windows computer. Apple has long offered similar features, but only for its own devices such as the iPhone and Mac.
