iPhone Feature Request: Copy ‘Skip Lock Screen’ feature from Google’s Pixel 4

Face Unlock on Google’s Pixel 4 is less secure than the iPhone’s Face ID, but it does have one feature I’d like to see Apple copy: Skip Lock Screen.

Copying that would be perfectly fair, as Google has recently confirmed that it will be copying at least part of Face ID’s Require Attention feature…


The Pixel 4 will copy Require AttentionLike Apple’s iPhone X, XS, and 11, Google’s new flagship Pixel 4 smartphone can unlock by recognizing your face. However, the company quickly came under fire when it was revealed that the device can be unlocked even when the owner is asleep, simply by someone else holding it up to their face.

With iPhones, there is a Requires Attention toggle. When this is on, your iPhone will only unlock if your eyes are open and you are actually looking at the screen. Google has now said that it plans to copy at least the first part of this requirement.

Google this evening confirmed to The Verge that it’s “been working on an option for users to require their eyes to be ope…

Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass revealed - Watch Fortnite's Season 6 'Darkness Rises' Trailer Right Here

Season 6 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is finally here, and changes are afoot. Servers are down at the time of this writing, but the patch is live and Epic is already starting to show off some of what it's got in store for the coming weeks. 

Season 6 is looking a whole lot like Halloween, with a Haunted Castle, Corn Fields and "corrupted" areas. As usual, the developer is showing off a cinematic introduction to the new season before the servers go live, so let's check that out.


The tagline is "Darkness Rises:"




So, as it turns out: the Cube was indeed evil. The corruption it spread by melting it to Loot Lake caused a kind of Haunted Castle to rise out of the water, menacing purple lightning and all. The lifeguard skins from Season 6 are somewhat surprised, but Skull Trooper seems here for it. Also, Skull Trooper is back in the mix.

Calling all tech heads: the release of Apple‘s iOS 12 update is here.

Keenos who wanted to try out the hottest Apple features were able to download a beta version of the software from last Thursday, with the update officially out today.

But what does iOS 12 offer and what do we know about it so far?What are the new features?
The new i0S program has garnered a lot of attention because a lot of its features are not only attractive, but they’re useful.

The i0S will group notifications so that any WhatsApp group chats that dominate your phone are effectively compartmentalised.

It will also feature Memoji, which is a cartoon, humanoid clone of yourself that you will be able to send to your friends over iMessage.

For the less disciplined among us, screen time will also be available through the new update. Designed to manage the time you spend on your phone and on social media, users can set daily limits and restrictions with the update.

Parents can also manage the time their kids spend on t…

iPhone XS and 6.5-inch XS Max announced

Dual SIM support, improved cameras, and a 512GB option





Apple has announced its next generation of iPhones, and one of them is by far the biggest iPhone yet. The two new models are called the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. 

They look almost identical to their predecessor, but there are two immediate differences: for one, they’re both available in gold, unlike last year; and more importantly, the XS Max is huge. It’s not just the biggest iPhone ever, it’s one of the biggest phones out there, period.

In addition to the iPhone XS and XS Max, Apple also announced a lower-cost model that splits the difference in size, called the iPhone XR. You can read more about that in our other article — we’re going to focus on Apple’s two new flagships, the XS and XS Max, below.
