iPhone 11 Pro will be the first iPhone I’m actually interested in – if it exists

The iPhone 11 doesn’t currently seem interesting enough to sway me from my perpetual ambivalence to Apple’s smartphones – they all seem like phones that are struggling to keep up with Android competitors, but ship for twice the price – but there might be a device in the works that changes my mind.If rumors are to be believed, the iPhone 11 release will also bring with it the surprise unveiling of the iPhone 11 Pro; a handset that’s top-end even by iPhone standards, one that will come with an Apple Pencil-style stylus, and presumably a big screen. 
This is what we know about the iPhone 11 so farHow well does the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 run?Which is the best iPhone, according to the TechRadar team?
This iPhone 11 Pro isn’t confirmed by any means, but there have been enough leaks about the handset for us to take them seriously, and it has us considering the possibility that Apple is going to take its iPhones down the path of the iPads – bringing out several different variants, headed by the powerful iPad Pro.If real, the iPhone 11 Pro will be a huge departure from previous iPhones – and this fascinates me, since I don’t think most iPhones improve enough between iterations. While I still respect Apple’s products – the iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) is my go-to tablet – I’ve always felt the phones are a little disappointing. However, if the iPhone 11 Pro rumors prove true, it could be the first Apple phone that I’m actually interested in or, dare I say it, excited for. Here’s why.
The iPhone XS
What makes the iPhone 11 Pro so different?
While we don’t know the processing power, dimensions, camera specs, or special features of the iPhone 11 Pro, what we have heard is that it may come with a smaller Apple Pencil stylus, similar to the S Pen that comes with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.In the Note 10, the S Pen has a range of useful features. You can take notes, draw, and annotate, as well as use several gestures that trigger functions, like taking pictures. Although they’re similar devices in terms of specs, the Samsung Galaxy S10 presents a completely different phone experience to the Note 10, and that’s because it doesn’t have the stylus.This distinction will potentially be echoed in the iPhone 11 Pro. Assuming the base iPhone 11 is a small step up from the iPhone XS, the Pro will be the device which brings interesting new changes to the iPhone series, and that’s a step up that’s rare in Apple’s phone range.
What’s so special about a stylus?
A phone stylus isn’t just a replacement for a finger for people who have constantly grubby hands, but a peripheral that adds an extra layer of functionality to your handset.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 with its S Pen
The reason for this is that it’s just easier to draw with a stylus than with a finger. Styluses are designed for drawing on smartphone screens, and the experience of drawing is smoother because there’s less friction than when you’re using a human finger.On top of that, us humans are trained to write and draw with a pencil, not with our fingers, so it’s more natural to use a stylus, and a lot more precise too.Have you ever tried taking quick notes with a smartphone? It’s hard to type efficiently on such a small keyboard, and hand-written notes often look gibberish when using a finger. However, when you use a stylus, it’s easy to quickly write down notes and thoughts on the fly.You can also draw, and annotate documents, so much more easily with a stylus, and it feels a lot more natural to do all of those things.
Why is this all so exciting?
I like to take notes, sign forms, and annotate documents a lot – I currently use an iPad Pro with Apple Pencil for this, but it can be pretty annoying to have to pull that out of my bag every time I need to do a quick task. A phone with a stylus would be valuable.Yes, I could buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 10, but I’m a big fan of the iPad Pro, and really respect the way Apple’s ecosystem of devices works together smoothly. However, I haven’t gone down the phone route yet because, honestly, iPhones just seem a little boring, and Android phones are all a lot more exciting at the moment.
Sketch to your heart’s content on an iPad Pro with its Apple Pencil
But if Apple were to bring out an iPhone 11 Pro with a stylus, designed for professionals or creatives, it would leave the other iPhones in its dust, and I’d be able to get so much more mileage out of it.By writing this opinion piece out, I’ve managed to get myself anticipating a device which isn’t even remotely confirmed by Apple yet, and it’s worth bearing in mind that it’s entirely possible the iPhone 11 Pro isn’t a thing (or that it ends up getting called something totally different). Rumors and leaks sometimes point to real devices, but just as often they’re totally bogus.Saying that, I’m surely not alone in hoping Apple finds some new way to make the iPhone 11 range a real step up from the iPhone X – the kind of step the iPhone XS wasn’t – and a stylus-toting high-end device would be just that handset.
iPhone 11 launch date set for September 10

Windows 10 May 2019 Update gets fixes for some long-standing bugs

Windows 10 May 2019 Update has been having a pretty smooth – and speedy – rollout thus far, with only relatively minor niggles, although there have been some more persistent issues remaining unsolved. But the good news is Microsoft has finally cured some of these with a new cumulative update.The main thorny problems which have been hanging around include an error that has been preventing Windows Sandbox from running in certain cases (Microsoft’s solution that lets Windows 10 Pro users run suspicious apps in a sandbox away from the rest of the system). This has been fixed with cumulative update KB4512941.
Windows 10 Pro vs Windows 10 Home: we explain the differencesHow to reinstall Windows 10Windows 10 May 2019 Update problems: how to fix them
And another sigh of relief can be breathed by those who were affected by compatibility issues caused by certain Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers and the May 2019 Update. This issue appeared over a month ago now, but Microsoft says it’s resolved with KB4512941 (although the safeguarding block won’t be removed until early September – so presumably next week).The cumulative update also deals with an issue whereby a black screen is displayed when using Remote Desktop to connect to a machine running Windows 10 May 2019 Update.
Mixed Reality improvements
Microsoft further promises that the latest cumulative update improves the “user experience and app compatibility so that more Win32 apps will work with Windows Mixed Reality”, which is good news for those who have invested in one of those headsets.There are a raft of other fixes which Microsoft has detailed in a long list here, but they also include resolving an issue preventing certain games from using Spatial Audio capabilities, and a problem where no cursor appears when selecting text input on a touchscreen.As we mentioned at the outset, the May 2019 Update rollout appears to have accelerated to a very speedy pace, with the upgrade now on 33% of Windows 10 machines according to one set of stats – that figure having tripled since the previous month, showing Microsoft has definitely opened up the floodgates.Most of the folks upgrading are doing so from the April 2018 Update, with prodding from Microsoft because the end-of-service date for that particular update isn’t that far off now (November 12).

If your Apple Watch display is cracking, Apple might replace the screen for free

Apple says it has identified a problem that “under very rare circumstances” can lead to cracking around the edge of the screen on aluminum Series 2 and Series 3 versions of the Apple Watch – and if you’re affected, you can have a free replacement.”Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will replace the screen on eligible Apple Watch units that exhibit this type of crack, free of charge,” Apple says on the official support page for the issue.What we don’t know is what’s causing this cracking, but it’s possible that some sort of manufacturing defect is to blame. That the issue only happens under “very rare circumstances” is encouraging for Series 2 and Series 3 owners.
The best Apple Watch appsNew iPhones are comingHuawei watches could use HarmonyOS
“The crack may begin on one side and then may continue around the screen as shown in the images below,” Apple says.

If you have noticed this sort of cracking on the display of your Apple Watch, first head to the support page on Apple’s website and check that your model matches one of the case size, color, and date sold combinations listed.You can then take it into an Apple Store or an approved repair shop, or post it off to Apple, to get the screen replaced free of charge. According to Apple you’ll be without your wearable for about five business days.These official repair programs are now reasonably common for Apple, though usually only a few devices are affected. The Apple Watch cracking certainly doesn’t seem to be on the scale of the MacBook Pro keyboard breaking.In the meantime we’re waiting for the Apple Watch Series 5 to make an appearance: we’re expecting it to be unveiled on September 10, alongside some new iPhones, with some new casing options in tow.

Horn vs Zerafa live stream: how to watch tonight’s boxing from anywhere

Its a big night for Australian fight fans as compatriots Jeff Horn and Michael Zerafa go to toe-to-toe in Victoria. Former WBO welterweight title holder Horn will be putting his WBA Oceania Middleweight belt on the line for tonight’s fight, and will be facing a fellow Aussie that’s far from the journeyman usually placed in front of a fighter with an eye on a world title fight.You can watch all of the action from the comfort of your own sofa from anywhere in the world with our Horn vs Zerafa live stream guide below.
Horn, a domestic boxing hero, is probably best know worldwide for his controversial points win over Manny Pacquiao back in 2017 which saw him unseat the then WBO welterweight champ. Having lost his title to Terence Crawford a year later, Horn has since moved to middleweight, and will have his eye on a late December title fight with WBA middleweight champion Ryoto Murata in Japan that has been agreed in principle.Zerafa, an Olympic gold medal winner at London 2012, has a strong pedigree, having only lost to top draw opposition (e.g. Peter Quillin, Kell Brook, Arif Magomedov) and will be hoping for complacency from his opponent.To ensure you can see the whole thing in real time so you don’t miss any of the action, we’ve put together this guide to help you watch a Horn vs Zerafa live stream. As with most boxing, it’s not always available in every country so you may find a VPN is the best way to stream the fight, which you’ll find out all about below.

G Suite vs Office 365: which is better for students?

This article originally appeared on Android Central and has been inducted into our Back to School guide
Before deciding on using G Suite or Office 365, first look if you already have free access to one of them as a student through your school. Most school districts or schools have an education partnership with either Google or Microsoft and extend some of the services to students. It would be smart to install the school’s chosen program to your device to be compatible with the same apps and services.However, if you’d like an account separate from the school’s, or if your school doesn’t offer free access to its students, then we recommend using Office 365 Education because you can still get a account as a student even if your school doesn’t have a contract with them. All you need is a valid school email address. Office 365 Education gives you access to all Office programs and Teams — its collaboration tool — and comes with plenty of cloud storage.
Comparing the two
Office 365 StudentG Suite for EducationYearly subscription$0$0School license requiredNYIncluded programsWord, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Access, Teams, OneDrive Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Jamboard, Hangouts, DriveEmail appOutlookGmailPhone support24/724/7
What you need to know about Office 365 Education
With an Office 365 Education subscription you get access to eight Office programs, including Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. You also have access to 12 Microsoft services, like OneDrive, Skype, SharePoint, and Forms. Office 365 lives in the cloud, so it doesn’t take up valuable space on your computer and allows you to access all its programs and saved projects from anywhere and from any device. Simply log into your online portal and you have access to everything from Publisher to OneNote.Apps can be pinned to Android smartphones and tablets for quick access on the go, and you can download each Office program to your laptop or computer to work offline. However, you will need to log into your online account often enough to keep your subscription active.
Microsoft Teams is a live chat program that comes with your Office 365 Education subscription that lets you talk with people in your study group, teachers, or other students in real-time. Anyone can create channels that reflect a specific class or projects, or you can keep it more confidential with person-to-person chat — like Slack. From within Teams you can call other collaborators or hold a video conference with up to 50 people at once. You can also share documents and give direct access to them so everyone in your group can add, edit and work on the project at the same time from the Teams Hub viewing window. As the files are changed, all copies, including those saved in your OneDrive, are automatically updated, too.One important note about Office 365 Education: If you’re given access through your school, it’s possible for administrators, collaborators, teachers, and others to see some personal information and saved files. Since Admins set the rules for OneDrive, they could restrict files being deleted and see data being saved there. Even if you create an Education account on your own, Microsoft will automatically connect your account to your school’s if one ever becomes available. Because of this we recommend not using this program for personal use. You can, however, purchase an Office 365 Personal account to use separately from your school account to keep personal files and documents private. This subscription will cost you about $70 per year.
All about G Suite for Education
G Suite for Education comes with an impressive amount of collaboration tools with Hangouts, Groups, Jamboard, and Classroom. Each one allows real-time communication and project creation with multiple people in a way that is easy to use and see. You can chat or hold video conferences using Hangouts to help everyone get on the same page. Other collaboration tools available for G Suite users include Jamboard — a cloud-based whiteboard — and Classroom.Classroom is managed by individual teachers to create a place for assigning homework, sending reminders, gathering and grading finished projects and pass along virtual handouts and other study materials. Educators can also assign group projects and create study groups within Classroom to help foster collaboration.G Suite lets you share files, save in Drive with others, and allow them to see and edit them in real-time. This is done by creating a link and sharing it. You can see when others are in the same files along with you and watch as edits are being made. However, it’s a bit clunky, and we notice there is a slight delay, so it’s possible multiple edits could mesh together and cause some confusion. G Suite keeps track of changes, though, and won’t make them permanent without your consent.
G Suite’s office programs, like Docs and Sheets, work similarly to Microsoft Office programs with most features and tools located in the same places, and it uses some of the same in-program shortcuts. You can also open and view Office documents, spreadsheets, and slideshows in G Suite, though you do need to convert them into a Google format to edit them. This may change some of the fonts and formatting of the projects and require a little more fix-it work on your end. Also, we noticed that some tools and functions don’t work the same, or aren’t available at all in G Suite. For example, some of the macro functions in Excel aren’t available in Google Sheets, so it’s harder to produce the same results.The biggest catch to using G Suite for Education is students can’t have an account unless their school has a subscription. Even teachers can’t sign up or use any of the tools until the school has created a partnership with Google.Google has two G Suite education programs with one being offered to schools and its teachers and students for free. With this program integrated at school, teachers can set up individual Classrooms, give access to G Suite to their students using a school email address, and create an environment for effective collaboration and learning. Students are welcome to have a personal Google One account to access Google Drive and office programs, although personal accounts cannot be used to access G Suite for Education.
Compatibility of Office 365 and G Suite
Because both Office 365 and G Suite are cloud-based, you can access them from just about any device, including Macs. Simply logging into your account through a web browser gives you access to all your programs, files, and apps. Both Office 365 and G Suite have apps you can download to your cellphone to access and edit specific files, though you need an individual app for each program. However, installing the Google Drive or OneDrive app does let you tap into any saved file created with its compatible programs with some basic editing and sharing capabilities.If you, or your school, have a Chromebook, you will see easy access to G Suite and other Google cloud programs already installed on the homescreen. However, if you are a 365 user you can still log into your online account and use its programs from a Chromebook using an internet browser, just like you do from a laptop or computer.
Both G Suite and Office 365 have ways to access programs offline. For G Suite users, simply indicate from within G Suite that you’d like a specific file available offline. Once the device you’re using connects to the internet, the file changes will be updated within the cloud program.To use Office 365 offline, you need to download the Office programs to a compatible laptop or computer running Windows. You are given the option of installing Office programs locally when you first being your subscription but can download them any time during your active subscription. You do need to log into the cloud-based program at least every 30 days for your online Office 365 subscription to remain active and to sync changes made offline. Microsoft will prompt you to do this, so you don’t have to remember on your own.
Wrapping it up: Our final thoughts
When it comes to choosing between G Suite for Education or Office 365 Education, start with finding out which one your school uses. This is as easy as asking a teacher or speaking with someone from student services. Using the same program will ensure you are on the same page as your teachers and have access to the same collaboration tools they use.If you don’t need to use a certain program to collaborate with your teacher or classmates, it then tends to come down to personal preference. You can use one over the other, or even mix and match programs from each package. Since both G Suite and Office 365 are cloud-based, you can easily toggle between them without having to worry about hard drive space.The only reason Office 365 Education gets an extra boost from us — and we love using Google and its programs — is because you can download this program for free as long as you, or you child, is a student with an active and verifiable school email address. Even if your school doesn’t have a contract with Microsoft to use its educator programs, students are still able to use the program at no cost to them.G Suite, on the other hand, is only available if your school has contracted with Google to use its education program. If your school doesn’t use G Suite, you can still access a free, individual Google One account for finishing homework assignments. You just won’t have access to the collaboration tools available through G Suite for Education.

Phone grips are the best tech accessory you can get your kid as they head back to school

This article originally appeared on Android Central and has been inducted into our Back to School guide
Phone grips might seem like an unnecessary add-on — “How could you possibly need help holding onto a phone?” — but I just have a few questions for you. How often does your child drop their phone? How often do you see them hunched over their phone to watch a video instead of propping the phone up and watching at a more natural angle? How often do you see them stretching their fingers out after a long night of texting their friends and sending weird meme selfies? If the answer to any of these questions was “a lot”, then do yourself, your child, and your wallet a favor.Buy them a phone grip. You can even buy them a cool one for less money than pizza night!
A penny of prevention is worth a pound of broken touchscreen

They can make shock-resistant, drop-tested smartphone cases all the livelong day — and they do a great job of it — but nothing beats preventing the phone from falling out of your hands in the first place. That’s the first and foremost reason to buy you kid a grip: so that they don’t break their phone and make you shell out for repairs or replacements.I’ll take a $10 grip over a multi-hundred dollar repair bill any day of the week, which is why every phone that crosses my desk gets a PopSocket, Style Ring, or some other grip on it the second I’m done reviewing the first case. Whether it’s a petit Pixel or gargantuan Galaxy, I have an easier and more reliable time hold onto the grip than I do to a flat-backed case alone.
Phone grips are healthy, even when your child’s phone habits aren’t
‘m something of an introvert, but when out and about in the world, it’s hard not to notice the tech — and tech habits — of those around me, especially when they’re bad habits I’m still actively fighting myself. I’ll find whole families hunched over their phones, teens overextending their thumbs trying to one-hand a text message and propping their phone on their pinky while taking selfies and scrolling Instagram.
This is bad. Don’t be like me.
I’m not a posture queen by any stretch of the imagination, but I’m painfully aware of the extra strain hunching over your phone or laptop can cause over time. Make all the jokes you want about Blackberry thumb and texting neck but an RSI is a painful and often irreversible thing, something I know firsthand: even years after swapping to phone grips, my left pinky yells at me every day I skip my GrabTab to review a case.Now, a phone grip isn’t going to magically cure your kid’s poor posture hunching over the phone, but it can significantly help their hands by giving them something easier and more comfortable to grip. The ability of most grips to double as kickstands can also help improve their poster by allowing them to prop up their phone at an angle rather than hunching over it flat on a desk.
Kick bad habits and poor productivity with phone grip kickstands

Phone stands are awesome, but they’re only useful when you have them on you. Since most phone grips double as at least landscape kickstands, adding one to your kid’s phone can help make their phone and their homework time more productive since they then have a kickstand with them they can use on any flat surface.I often reference notes on my phone while writing on my Chromebook, and this is especially helpful when I use phone grips like the Spigen Style Ring POP and Scooch Winback that keep my phone vertical rather than landscape. Kickstands can make looking at a phone easier on your child’s neck by lessening their need to hunch over, too, compounding the grip’s in-hand benefits.
Phone grips are cool

When your kid sees a phone grip with Darth Vader or Stitch on them, they just see a cool character that they want on all the things. This gives PopSockets a very unique advantage in trying to get your kids to want to use a phone grip, especially now that Swappable PopSockets will allow your kid to swap Darth Vader for the Dark Knight depending on which of their five favorite shirts they’re wearing.Both PopSockets and Speck GrabTabs have Pride collections, too, meaning if your middle or high school has a cause they’re behind, they can show it off on their most visible accessory: their phone grip. PopSockets’ Poptivism grips even give money to partner charities like March for Our Lives, Girls Inc and The Trevor Project.So let your kid pick out a phone grip that speaks to their style. Call it a Back To School gift, even though it’s healthier for them and extra phone insurance for you.

Best Phone Grips for Students in 2019

This article originally appeared on Android Central and has been inducted into our Back to School guide
School is a dangerous environment for most tools and tech, but none more so that phones. Phones are essential items in a phone, always in arm’s reach but often bumped, dropped, or banged in the hustle and bustle of changing classrooms or running to meet up with friends at lunch. Phone grips have been a lifesaver for me and my slim fingers, and considering how affordable these ones are, they’re well worth the investment.
Why PopSockets win the popularity contest

Now that PopSockets come in a swappable style that allow you to easily swap between styles to match your kid’s wardrobe — and can come off for wireless charging, should that be a thing your kid actually uses — the reasons not to use one are becoming few and far between. They’re affordable, they’re recognizable, and with the Pop Culture collection finally updated to swappable PopTops, they’re cool, too.PopSockets are also as much a toy as they are a tool, and I often pop one of my spares up and down when I get bored during staff meetings, and I’m sure there are some easily distracted kids (like me) out there who could use a fidget toy to help them avoid drifting into a daydream during a lecture.
Kickstands are cool, but you know what’s really cool? Vertical kickstands

There’s more to a phone grip that in-hand use, though. While most non-fabric phone grips double as landscape kickstands, the number of phone grips that allow you to set your phone upright next to your computer or lunch so you can scroll through Twitter or reference notes while rushing through some last-minute homework are fewer in number and usually larger in size.The Spigen Style Ring POP and the original Spigen Style Ring are something of the standard-bearer when it comes to phone grip kickstands, but I also adore the Scooch Wingback for its springy metal coil, which works great as a vertical kickstand for most phones and has a satisfying sound when you click it in and out.

Basketball World Cup 2019 live stream: how to watch every FIBA game online from anywhere

Tip-off time is here! Taking place over the course of a fortnight, the 18th edition of the FIBA World Cup takes place this year in China across eight different venues. And you’re in the right place to discover how to get a Basketball World Cup live stream from your corner of the Earth.While usually held every four years, there’s been a bit of a longer wait for Basketball fans this time out, with the tournament delayed by a year, meaning it now falls out of sync with the FIFA World Cup for the first time. There’s also a new expanded format, with 32 teams now taking part, up from the previous 24.
The USA go into the tournament as two-time defending champions as well as clear favourites, and will be looking to become the first nation to win the World Cup three times on the bounce.It won’t be a cakewalk for the Americans, however. Many of the big names from the NBA have not made themselves available, with the likes of Stephen Curry, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook,Kyrie Irving, Paul George and Anthony Davis all withdrawing.On top of that, the chasing pack this time out will be stronger than ever, with Serbia, Spain and Greece all genuine contenders.Beyond the tournament itself there’s more at stake – the  FIBA World Cup will this year act as qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics, with seven of the twelve spots up for grabs (the top two finishers from both Europe and the Americas, along with the top one from each of Africa, Asia and Oceania).FIBA World Cup 2019 Groups Group A: China (hosts), Venezuela, Poland, Ivory Coast Group B: Russia, Argentina, South Korea, Nigeria Group C: Spain, Iran, Puerto Rico, Tunisia Group D: Angola, Philippines, Italy, Serbia Group E: United States, Turkey, Czech Republic, Japan Group F: Greece, New Zealand, Brazil, Montenegro Group G: Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Jordan Group H: Canada, Senegal, Lithuania, AustraliaIf you want to know where you’ll be able to watch all the action – it’s ESPN+ if you’re in the US – we’ll tell you exactly where you can catch it online with our 2019 Basketball World Cup live stream guide below.

19 school supplies to brighten a student’s day in 2019

This article originally appeared on Android Central and has been inducted into our Back to School guide
Ahh, school days. The time when students are busy cramming for tests and studying for essays. Students often don’t have the time to take care of their everyday needs, whether that be grocery shopping, replacing daily items, or buying something fun for themselves. We’ve rounded up some awesome supplies that would make any high school or college student happy to receive. See which items remind you of your student.
Class is in session
High school and college students can have pretty stressful lives depending on the amount of classes they’re taking and the upcoming events in their lives. You can help them out by providing everyday necessities or fun items that they wouldn’t be able to get for themselves. Just keep in mind that many college students don’t have a lot of space. You’ll want to send them things that will be useful without cluttering up their dorms or apartments.I highly recommend sending an Amazon Pantry food care package like this Variety Fun Care Package. It provides a mix of cookies and crackers to satisfy both a savory and sweet craving and there are 50 snacks in all. High school students will enjoy the treats and college students will find this a welcome surprise as they usually aren’t able to buy a lot of snacks for themselves.Know any coffee fiends?
