Fortnite Mobile: How to download Fortnite for iOS and Android

Image
If you're looking for a fun gaming fix on the go, why not Fortnite for mobile?
The Epic Games Battle Royale shooter has been available on both iOS and Android devices since 2018. It has transferred the popular game to a wide range of pocket-sized smartphones and tablets.
Getting Fortnite on the phone was a breeze. Fortnite Battle Royale's runaway success, with 100 players appearing as the last fighters on an island map, has already been very successful on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Fortunately, Fortnite's cartoon art style can also be easily scaled down to smartphone screens that have never been as competitive as online games - with a goal support option for Fortnite cellphone gamers who mourn the loss of detail at this smaller size.
So Fortnite Mobile is a real thing, and if you're reading this, it's because you want to jump right into the Epic Games mobile game. To that end, we've put together a step-by-step guide to starting your Fortnite mobil…

Irish Apple HQ employee contracts coronavirus

Image
A worker at Apple's European headquarters in Cork, Ireland has reportedly been tested positive for the coronavirus, a medical situation that has prompted the iPhone maker to perform a deep clean of the offices and to warn employees to self-isolate.


An employee who worked out of the Cork offices was tested in early March for the virus, promptly after feeling unwell and departing the building. In a statement to the media and in an internal memo, Apple has confirmed the staff member was infected with covid-19.

Apple told employees in an email it was working "closely" with the Health Service Executive of Ireland, reports the Irish Examiner. While the HSE believed the risk to other employees was low, Apple has still informed some who worked "in the immediate working environment" of the person to self-isolate and "not come into the office for an initial 48-hour period."

It was also advised Apple will be "continuing our deep cleaning protocols of all o…

watchOS 7, tvOS 14, iOS 14 could debut new workout demonstration app

Image
Apple is doubling-down again on health and fitness in its operating systems, and appears to be building an app to help users walk through different workouts, and perform them safely.

The app, reportedly called "Seymour," looks to be a separate app from the Activity app. At present, it looks like it will be launched alongside iOS 14, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14. It isn't clear how much data the two apps will pass between each other at this time.

"Seymour" is said to allow users to download fitness videos, with specific guidance provided on how to get proper credit for completion on the Apple Watch. While the download can be triggered on the Apple Watch, it appears that a larger screen, such as a television with an Apple TV, an iPad, or iPhone will be required to view the videos —which makes sense, given the size of the Apple Watch screen.

According to MacRumors who spotted the app on Monday night, workouts included are core training, cycling, strength training, some…

Apple sells fewer than half a million iPhones in China in February

Image
The impact of the coronavirus outbreak has resulted in Apple selling 494,000 iPhones in China in February, around 60% fewer than in the same month in 2019.

The effects of the coronavirus with Apple closing Stores in China, and the government there limiting travel, has severely hit the company's iPhone sales for February 2020. While January had seen Apple claiming double-digit growth, new figures for February say that iPhone sales dropped almost 60%.

According to Reuters, Apple sold approximately 494,000 iPhones across China in February 2020, compared to an estimated 1.27 million in the same month last year.

The figures come from the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), which reports that all mobile phone sales are significantly down.

While Apple's iPhone sales represent a drop of around 60% year on year, Android phones have seen a fall of 45%. Collectively, CAICT says that 12.72 million Android phones were sold in February 2019, compared to just…

'Apple Watch Series 6' may introduce blood oxygen detection, better ECG

Image
New health-focused features and a new sensor suite may come to Apple Watch this fall, including blood oxygen detection and an improved ECG.

While the technology for blood oxygen detection has existed in the Apple Watch since the first version, it has never been used. However, a new report claims that the "Apple Watch Series 6" in the fall may have the ability.

If a person's blood oxygen falls below healthy levels, which is usually around 95% to 100% saturation, it can lead to heart health issues or even cardiac arrest. It is suggested that once implemented, users will be able to get push notifications for low blood oxygen.

According to 9to5Mac, this technology could come in the future, and along with it an upgraded ECG.

The Apple Watch Series 4 and newer can conduct an Electrocardiogram via the Digital Crown. There is a limitation, however, because it will return inconclusive results if the heart rate is too high. An improved system would allow ECGs to be performed at mu…
