Meet Peggy Johnson, the Microsoft and Qualcomm veteran who's been tapped to turn failing mixed-reality startup Magic Leap into a success (MSFT)

Peggy Johnson, Microsoft's head of business development, is leaving the company to become CEO of Magic Leap. Johnson, who will start work in August, is known for helping Microsoft build — and often repair — business relationships, and experts say that's just what Magic Leap needs.

Are you a current or former Microsoft em...

Apple just gave us another hint at what a foldable iPhone could one day look like (AAPL)

Apple has filed a patent that hints at what a foldable iPhone may one day look like. The patent is for a foldable electronic device that lies flat when open, but when closed leaves a small portion of the display exposed for showing notifications and other information. It's far from being the first patent Apple has filed for a foldable device. While it shouldn't be taken as evidence that Apple is definitely developing a foldable phone, it's another sign that the company has been thinking about ...

I hate how much I love the animations on Apple’s Privacy page

Ugh, I’m making myself feel ill before I’ve even started writing. But here we go, deep breath… I love Apple’s Privacy page on its website. And I hate that. Let’s backtrack a bit though. We’ve covered Apple’s approach to Privacy a few times lately. The most recent was to do with the iOS clipboard story, a saga that has evolved from the iOS 14 beta, where apps are being shamed for continually snooping on users’ copied text. Another was this piece following the launch of iOS 13 where we talked abou...

'It's largely gonna go to waste and it distorts the market': Billionaire investor Chamath Palihapitiya blasts the Fed and Treasury for spending billions to help companies instead of consumers

You might soon be able to see the precise location of traffic lights on Google Maps.

Your future MacBook will probably look a lot more like the iPhone — and that could be just what Apple needs to get ahead of Windows (AAPL)

Apple will start developing its own chips for future Mac computers, a shift that could give the tech giant more freedom to create custom Mac features that are closely tied to its software. It's an approach that Apple has taken with the iPhone and Apple Watch, both of which have features powered by the neural engine in Apple's homegrown chips. The development of its own silicon is just one way in which Apple is blending its mobile and desktop ecosystems. The company is also redesigning the Mac'...

Apple and T-Mobile are facing a class action lawsuit over security concerns regarding an issue that made it possible for third parties to access communications sent through Apple's iMessage and FaceTime services.

As such, the previous owner of the SIM card was able to receive FaceTime calls and iMessage...

Actor Tom Hanks discussed his new war movie "Greyhound" that will debut on Apple TV Plus in a recent interview with The Guardian. According to Hanks, Apple instructed him to use a blank wall as his background in the interview with the outlet's reporter, perhaps to prevent anything in his home — such as books on a shelf — from being scrutinized. Hanks also expressed "heartbreak" that his movie, which he poured years of work into, won't be experienced on the big screen. The movie was supposed to...

Here’s a dumb graph about Steve Jobs’ stylus hate and Apple Pencil releases

Is this stupid? Damn right it’s stupid, but that’s never stopped me before. So, Steve Jobs never liked styluses. This began publicly at the launch of the original iPhone, where — when talking about the device’s physical keyboard-less design — he famously asked “who wants a stylus?” You think that’s it? Well, let me tell you about something else. It was in a presentation for iOS 4 back in 2010 — and Steve Jobs broke the hearts of stylus fans everywhere. In a rant about the iPad (guess it was more...

How to quickly turn on Night Shift on iOS (and reduce that gnarly blue light)

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff. I’m not a Night Shift fan per se. I don’t like it when my iPhone or iPad screen becomes orange-tinted on a schedule. If I’m still up in front of the TV at midnight on a Tuesday, I’d rather not my expensive device look as though it was dunked in Orangina. But… there does come a time when I’m using my device in bed (I know, awful habit) and I’d rather some of th...
