    Apple is reportedly working on 5th-gen iPad mini and entry-level 10-inch iPad for 2019. The manufacturing is already underway this month. Before the official launch, we are getting to see the first iPad mini 5 case that shows off a couple of interesting details. There are few notable changes if the leaked case ends up being a legitimate case. There's an oblong camera cutout that matches up with the new iPad Pro camera configuration. This means that the upcoming iPad Mini 5 will be getting a flash to go along with its camera. The rear camera will have a vertical arrangement in-line with current iPhones. It’s difficult to tell, but it looks like a headphone jack cutout is included with this case in the top right corner. There’s also a cutout in the middle of the device on the edge, bringing up the possibility for Apple’s first-gen smart connector. Although this could also be a functional part of the case not related to Apple’s hardware. Back in October, reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the iPad mini 5 would arrive in either late 2018 or early 2019. He also mentioned that it would include a “lower-cost panel” but didn’t predict a price point. Considering a low-price ...

    Amongst consumer electronics, very few brands have managed to create an iconic brand identity towards a design language. Apple comes to mind with their iPhones and iPods before that. LaCie is another such brand whose orange rubber sheathed hard drives are the de facto choice for content creators around the world. With a promise of exceptional resilience to the elements, they are the perfect choice for photographers, filmmakers and others who live out of their suitcase and need something to keep up with their lifestyle. We've got the LaCie Rugged Secure hard drive with us for review, and we've been putting it through its paces. Here's what we think about it. The design of LaCie's rugged portable line hasn't changed much in years and that's just as well since it is quite an iconic design. Additionally, it is surprisingly rugged. A thick rubberized frame encases the drive from any and all corners where it could get damaged. It also covers the drive enough from the top and bottom to ensure it doesn't get hit directly when falling flat. The design by Neil Poulton is hence both functional and a style statement of sorts. Under the sleeve is a standard metal encased ...

    Instagram seems to be quietly testing the horizontal feed for some users which is a huge shift from vertically scrolling user experience. It accidentally wide-spread the rollout of the horizontal feed and reverted back to the original layout owing to the increasingly negative comments from users.  Sorry about that, this was supposed to be a very small test but we went broader than we anticipated. 😬 — Adam Mosseri (@mosseri) December 27, 2018 Due to a bug, some users saw a change to the way their feed appears today. We quickly fixed the issue and feed is back to normal. We apologize for any confusion. — Instagram (@instagram) December 27, 2018 The company previously tested the feature back in October in the Explore section of the app. The new feed layout basically turns all posts into a horizontal arrangement where you scroll through right/left much like the Instagram story to advance. There is a scrolling bar at the top to show you how far you’ve progressed. Thanks to the horizontal feed, each post is given the spotlight at any given time. The comments appear with a flick upward. The downside to the new layout is that you can only advance a single post at a time. The new layout makes it easier to access ...

    According to reports, Apple is said to begin assembling its top-end iPhones in India through the local unit of Foxconn as early as 2019. This will also be the first time the Taiwanese contract manufacturer will make the iPhones in the country.  Most importantly, Foxconn will be assembling the high-end models in the X-series, potentially taking Apple’s business in India to a new level. The work will take place at Foxconn’s plant in Sriperumbudur town in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, said the report. Foxconn, which already makes phones for Xiaomi in India, will invest 25 billion Indian rupees to expand the plant. This will include the investment in iPhone production, Tamil Nadu’s Industries Minister M C Sampath told Reuters. The investment may create as many as 25,000 jobs. This move will also help both Foxconn and Apple to limit the impact of a trade war between the United States and China. Until now, Apple has only assembled the lower-cost SE and 6S models in India through Wistron Corp’s local unit in the Bengaluru technology hub. Apple launched the iPhone X last year but has cut production of that phone, since it began selling the newer versions; the iPhone XS and XR, globally this year. ...

    According to sources, Google said to be planning on launching two Pixel smartphones; dubbed Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL on Verizon in early spring 2019. An exact announcement date and pricing are not yet known. We have already started hearing rumors and leaks about both the smartphones adding more weight to the possible launch. The Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will be the first smartphones from Google in the mid-range segment since the Nexus 5X. While we don't know much about them for certain, leaks so far have suggested a Snapdragon 670 or 710 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, headphone jack, and 12MP rear and 8MP front cameras. The regular Pixel 3 Lite will have a 5.5" screen, while the larger XL will have a 6" display. The phones might get the same camera optics as the original Pixel 3 series, but with inferior performance, and far more limited storage. The Pixel 3 Lite is codenamed “Sargo” and we have heard rumors of the same back in October in the ARCore code. Externally, the Pixel 3 Lite looks very similar to the regular Pixel 3 with regular 18:9 aspect ratio and tall display. The fingerprint sensor is present on the rear along ...
