Patrick

Apple has launched three new products today, following their announcement just a few days ago at the company’s “Time Flies” event. You can now order the $329 eighth-generation iPad, the $399 Apple Watch Series 6, and the $279 Apple Watch SE from its online store. The redesigned iPad Air with USB-C charging won’t arrive until October.

Speaking of October, Apple’s site says if you place an order today, you can expect them to be delivered during the first or second week of next month. That’s kind of a long wait, especially if you’re excited to upgrade. So I’d recommend

It’s cheaper to use an Apple Watch with Verizon now

Patrick

If you were thinking of adding a new Apple Watch (or any other LTE-ready smartwatch with a dedicated phone number) to your Verizon account, you’ll probably like to hear that the carrier just cut the monthly cost of doing that by half. It’s normally $20 to add a watch if you don’t already have a phone on your account, though it will now costs $10 per month per watch for all standalone plans.

Patrick

Samsung’s titanium Galaxy Watch 3 now has a price and a release date: it’ll start at $599.99 and be released on October 2nd.

Functionally, the new titanium model is identical to the stainless steel model that Samsung released earlier this year, with the exception of the case material (obviously) and the inclusion of a matching titanium bracelet instead of a leather strap. Whether that’s worth the $170 price premium over the comparable $429 stainless steel model will depend largely on your horological preferences.

To start, Samsung is planning on releasing just a 45mm Bluetooth-only variant of the watch in a

Surprisingly, they’re no stranger to the occasional price cut. There are commonly discounts on even the more expensive AirPods Pro, which offer noise cancellation and better sound than the standard second-generation model.

We’ll run through all three of the current models below, including the second-generation AirPods, the more expensive second-generation AirPods that

Microsoft snubs Apple’s olive branch to cloud gaming: ‘a bad experience for customers’

Patrick

Apple issued new App Store rules earlier today, permitting game streaming services like xCloud or Stadia to exist on iOS or iPadOS with a big catch. Apple wants companies like Microsoft to individually submit their games as separate apps using its streaming tech. Microsoft and Google are free to create a “catalog”-style app that collects and links out to all of these individual apps as well.

Microsoft isn’t impressed.

“This remains a bad experience for customers,” says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. “Gamers want to jump directly into a game from their curated catalog within
