You can already pre-order an iPhone 14 - if you've got a spare $10,000

While excitement grows for the iPhone 14, we can say pretty confidently that Apple hasn't started pre-orders for the thing yet. But that doesn't mean excited fans can't already put their money where their mouth is... if they've got enough of said money.

Custom iPhone maker Caviar has unveiled its iPhone 14 collection, with 13 different exorbitantly expensive spins on Apple's upcoming smartphone. They range from the $9,500 Champagne Rose model you can see above, with stingray leather and titanium, up to a $22,620 Gold Champagne Crystal model which includes loads of gold jewelry as well as nine diamonds.

Most of these devices are limited-run ones, with only 99 or so models being made. You can choose whether to get an iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max version - the latter bumps the price up by even more.

It's worth pointing out that the iPhones shown in these pictures probably aren't accurate to what the iPhone 14 will look like - they seem based on the iPhone 13 Pro. Caviar is likely just using this mobile as a placeholder to show off the designs.

Caviar is no stranger to wild, whacky and incredibly expensive smartphones - we've also seen the company make a $27,000 Steve Jobs iPhone, $8,600 dinosaur iPhone (with real fossil), $6,900 iPhone made from original iPhones, and many more bonkers creations for people with too much money.

If you're interested in these new models - and have huge amounts of money to burn - you can pre-order them right now, however it's not clear whether you'll receive the phone as soon as the iPhone 14 goes on sale, or later.

Analysis: probably not your only way of getting an iPhone 14

If you're super excited for the iPhone 14 but don't have a cool $10,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you can easily ignore Caviar's offerings.

The existence of these phones won't affect the availability of the final models, and you'll still have ample time to pre-order those if Apple follows its usual pattern of making them available for pre-order a week or so before they go on sale.

If you do have the money for these expensive iPhones - and have run out of charities to donate to or people to help - maybe you might enjoy the most indulgent mobile you'll ever see. But there are probably better things to buy than a gold and diamond iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

I replaced my Steam Deck’s noisy fan and am so happy I did

Photo by Sean Hollister / The Verge 160 hours into Elden Ring, I’m sure of one thing: the single most annoying thing about my Steam Deck is its whiny fan. And now, I’m so happy to report there’s a way to fix it. It takes roughly 15 minutes and $30 — depending on where you live — to install a replacement fan from iFixit. Five days ago, the repair company finally got a large shipment of those fans , and I bought one right away. Now, my Steam Deck’s tiny screech is gone. Is the fan still loud? Yes, yes it is, but it’s a whoosh instead of a whine. I like to think of it as the sound of air escaping the Deck’s vents, but mostly, I don’t think about it at all. I can easily tune out the new whoosh, whereas the whine always managed to get my attention even after Valve tweaked its software to bring the fan noise down. In fact, the new fan has less whine than the electrical tape trick I showed you in April , and — YMMV — seems to be oh-so-slightly quieter overall. I did an admittedly

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://
