Throughout 2021 so far, Anker has expanded its stable of MagSafe-compatible chargers for iPhone 12 devices with quite a few different models. While most of them have been pretty squarely aimed at providing more budget-friendly alternatives to Apple’s official model, its latest looks to deliver an all-new form factor.

Apple’s newest Safari design in iOS 15 has been controversial, to say the least. It’s a complete overhaul of one of the iPhone’s most popular apps that follows entirely different design philosophies. Countless folks, including myself, have tried to come up with ways to “fix” the new design and make it more familiar and comfortable to use. This is my latest try. What I wanted to do was to follow the same principles and aim for the same goal. A mobile browser that’s easy to use in one hand and one that makes switching between sites on the fly a breeze.

Apple today has released iOS 15 beta 4 and iPadOS 15 beta 4 to developers. The updates continue to make changes to the controversial Safari redesign, a new widget option for Podcasts on the iPadOS home screen, and more. Head below as we roundup all of the changes in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 beta 4.
The new Safari design has faced a lot of criticism since it was introduced during the
keynote. Now, beta 4 of iPadOS 15 shows that the iPad is following the same path as macOS Monterey did with beta 3.
One of the sharp new features with macOS Monterey and iOS 15 is the ability for the Photos app to automatically recognize and let you interact with text in images. However, that was originally

. Now with the fourth beta, macOS Monterey enables Live Text for Intel Macs.
Apple today sent out an email to developers letting them know that a
handful of Siri intents
are no longer supported. If customers invoke these commands via Siri for a supporting app in iOS 15 or later, Siri will simply reply that the request cannot be handled.
Affected Siri domains include ride booking, configuration of vehicles via Siri over CarPlay, and third-party Photo Search. Many of these SiriKit intents were introduced when third-party Siri support was first added to the system back in iOS 10. Apple didn’t provide a reason for their abrupt removal.
While some Apple products are repaired directly in Apple Stores, Apple contracts many of its Mac repairs to third-party providers, including CSAT Solutions based in Houston, Texas. A new report today from

A week after
seeding beta 3
, Apple has released macOS Monterey beta 4 to developers today. Last time around we saw a major
change to Safari’s default design
moving away from the unified search/tab bar. With beta 4, Apple says the exciting Universal Control feature has been enabled and Live Text comes to Intel Macs.
Update 11:30 am PT:
Apple has now pulled the mention of Universal Control being live in beta 4.
Apple Watch has introduced a host of health benefits over the last six years including monitoring heart health/ECG readings, fall detection, blood oxygen, exercise tracking, and has become more widely
used in health studies
. However, researchers from Harvard and the University of Michigan have now shared concerns about relying on Apple Watch for studies with the wearable’s algorithms creating “black boxes.”
Early rumors about the
suggest that Apple plans to lose the notch next year, with in-screen
two possible ways to achieve this. A patent granted today describes how both forms of biometric authentication could be embedded into the display.
