iOS 13 vs iOS 12: here’s what changed

By | June 24th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

iOS 13 has now landed in public beta form today, meaning that if you’re feeling adventurous you can download it now.

The question you’ve got to ask yourself is whether it’s worth the bugs and instability to get on board early, and to help answer that we’ve compared iOS 13 with iOS 12, so you can see exactly what’s new and different. iOS 13 has most of the stuff iOS 12 has, but it also has a whole lot more, and lots of improvements, as you’ll see below.… Read the full article

By | June 22nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

If you’re after an Apple Watch, then chances are you’re considering the Apple Watch 4 or the Apple Watch 3. Both are still sold by Apple and they look superficially similar.

However, there are a number of differences between them. So to help you make the right choice we’ve compared Apple’s two latest wearables across all the categories that matter, so you can see what’s the same, what’s different, and how much you’re going to have to pay for each.… Read the full article

Moto E6 leaked render gives us our first look at the phone

By | June 21st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The Moto E5 launched back in April 2018, so we’re due a new model, and it seems the Moto E6 could be almost here, as a detailed render of it has just leaked.

Shared by Evan Blass (a reliable leaker), the Moto E6 as shown here is a distinctly budget-looking handset, as you’d expect. It has a big bezel surrounding the screen, a patterned seemingly-plastic build, a 3.5mm headphone port, and single-lens cameras on both the front and the back.

From the front it’s similar to the Moto E5, but from the back it’s quite different, as the camera block on the Moto E6 as shown here is smaller and in the top left corner, while on the Moto E5 it’s more central.… Read the full article

Five new Wear OS smartwatches look to be in the works

By | June 20th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

It sometimes seems almost like Fossil and its various sub-brands are single-handedly keeping Wear OS alive, and that trend doesn’t look set to change, as it appears that five new smartwatches from the company are in the works.

Several FCC (Federal Communications Commission) filings for Wear OS watches with the model numbers DW10F1, DW10M1, DW10M2, DW10E1, and DW10D1 were spotted by Droid Life, and while the listings don’t reveal much, those model numbers do hint at which brands they belong to.… Read the full article

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 could have a very versatile camera

By | June 20th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S10 both have a camera lens that can do something most rivals can’t. Namely, it can shift between two different apertures, but for the Galaxy Note 10, Samsung might up that to three apertures.

That's according to @UniverseIce (a reputable leaker) citing "Samsung China engineers." Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will have a single lens that’s able to switch between f/1.5, f/1.8 and f/2.4.

Two of those are the same as we’ve seen on previous Samsung phones with a variable aperture, but the f/1.8 stage is new.… Read the full article

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 range could land on August 10, but without a key upgrade

By | June 10th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Given that the last few Galaxy Note phones all landed in August it was always likely the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 would too, but we now have an idea of the exact date, as a source points to August 10.

That date comes from ETNews, but we’d take it with a side of salt, as it has a mixed track record and it’s not clear where it got the information from. That’s also a Saturday, which seems an odd choice.… Read the full article

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 renders show the possible design in full

By | June 6th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

We may have just had our closest and clearest look yet at the possible design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, as renders have been shared that seemingly show the phone from all sides.

Shared by the usually reliable leaker @OnLeaks on behalf of 91mobiles, the renders show a single-lens punch-hole camera in the top center of the apparently 6.3-inch screen, with hardly any bezels above or below the display.

The screen is curved, as you’d expect from a Galaxy Note, and on the back there are three cameras running down the left edge.… Read the full article

Every 5G trial live in the UK right now

By | June 2nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

It has been a long time coming, but 5G has finally landed in the UK, with the first network just switched on and the first wave of 5G handsets hitting stores.

That’s good news, as 5G could prove to be a revolutionary technology. At the very least it will make any process that involves data a lot faster, so you’ll be able to download large apps in seconds, stream 4K content without buffering, and load websites instantly.

But it’s also set to provide lower latency, which will be a major boon to online gamers, and to offer increased capacity, so being in a stadium or city center full of other 5G users won’t lead to network congestion.… Read the full article
