Just when people were beginning to come to terms with the fact iPhones no longer have a headphone port, a new leak has revealed Apple could be ditching its Lightening adapter in favour of a USB-C.
A screengrab of the new recovery mode screen in iOS 13 has been leaked, suggesting the iPhone 11 could come without the Lightening port, which has been a key feature on the iPhone since 2012.
Rumours of the potential change had been circulating around the tech world for some time, and this screengrab would appear to confirm these rumours. Meanwhile, Apple has already moved to the USB-C cables for its iPad pro.

Samsung wants its mid-range phones to pick up slack in light of sluggish profits
Wednesday July 31, 2019

Well, investors can’t say they weren’t warned. Samsung’s profit guidance from the start of the month, warning investors to beware of a 56% drop in profits year-on-year, turned out to be right on the money.  As close to predicted, the world’s biggest phone manufacturer posted an operating profit of 6.6 trillion Korean won (~£4.6 billion), … "Samsung wants its mid-range phones to pick up slack in light of sluggish profits"

Wednesday July 31, 2019

One Tuesday after work, I received a text from somebody I didn’t want to hear from about a subject I didn’t want to talk about.

If the change does go ahead, it would render all current Apple charges as redundant for iPhone 11 and any subsequent models.
In the screenshot, the image of the Lightning cable shown in iOS 12 has clearly been replaced with a USB-C cable.
The screenshot, which was posted on Twitter by Raphael Mouton, shows the familiar Lightning cable and iTunes icon that appeared on the iPhone screen in previous iOS versions isn’t there anymore.
It has now been replaced with the image of a laptop and what appears to be a USB-C cable.
A USB-C charger is commonly used on android devices and was created for thinner, sleeker devices like tablets and ulta-book, while claiming to be robust enough for smartphones. It was built on existing USB 3.1 and USB 2.0 technologies.
However, the main feature is that it is reversible and will therefore work whichever way it is plugged in.
Existing iPhone charger docks will no longer be compatible if the rumoured changes are to go ahead afterall.
Apple chargers currently retail at around £20 which means there could be a lot of disgruntled customers if they’re no longer usable.

Wednesday July 31, 2019

1. Skinwalkers. Seriously. The number of Askreddit threads I’ve seen with bizarre wolf creatures, large humanoids in the woods, and people discussing Skinwalkers is downright chilling. 2. As a form of a traditional demon, the Baba Yaga, a witch Slavic folklore. Had an ‘imaginary friend’ named Baba Witch that lived in my barn when I was … "30 Folklore Creatures That Could Actually Exist"
