How to remove the SIM card from your iPhone

Remove a SIM card from one iPhone and move it to another device in order to make and receive calls there to your existing phone number. iPhone SIM cards only store small amounts of customer data, including your phone number and billing information. They do not store contacts, images, apps, and other data, which must be transferred separately when you get a new iPhone. Whether you're selling your old iPhone, trading it in for a new model, or sending it away for repairs, it's important that y...

The CEO behind 'Fortnite' says the entire video game industry is missing the 'inevitable' trend as the barriers between consoles and smartphones get obliterated

Tim Sweeney, the CEO ofEpic Games, tells Business Insider that the success of "Fortnite" shows that there's no such thing as a "mobile gamer" or a "console gamer" anymore — there's just gamers.  That's a big part of why the company this week launched Epic Online Services, which will let video game developers easily create games that include cross-play across PCs, consoles, and smartphones.  Sweeney says that it's all based on tech that Epic came up with itself for "Fortnite," and indeed, the s...

Comcast just announced a $5-a-month streaming service called 'Flex'

Xfinity Flex works similarly to Roku and will let customers integrate other streaming services they pay for, like Netflix or Amazon Prime, into one device. Flex seems aimed at deepening relationships with existing Comcast customers rather than acquiring new ones. Comcast announced Thursday that it would launch a $5-a-month aggregation service for its broadband customers March 26. Named Xfinity ...

A portfolio manager at a $43 billion hedge fund explains firms' flawed approach to using alternative data, and how they can fix it

Mike Chen, a portfolio manager at PanAgora Asset Management, said firms are struggling to find value in alternative data because of their approach. Instead of trying out a variety of data feeds, Chen said firms should first develop a specific investment question they'd like to solve. Wall Street investors have recently voiced frustration over generating substantial returns using alternative data in their trading strategies.    Like trying to drink water straight from a fire hydrant, investors...

I used Apple’s new iPad mini, and it might finally make me an Apple Pencil believer (AAPL)

The iPad mini received a long overdue upgrade earlier this week that brings better performance, Apple Pencil support, and an enhanced display. The Apple Pencil feels more natural on the iPad mini than any other Apple tablet I've used it with so far, largely because of its size. But that benefit comes at a $99 premium, and there are other less expensive options for those who just want a portable tablet for entertainment.  Apple's iPads have become increasingly capable of serving as laptop repl...

This app collects wallpapers designed to hide Samsung Galaxy S10’s camera

The hole-punch on the new Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup might not be as obnoxious as a notch. But, in case you wanted to hide it anyway, there’s now an app that collects creative wallpapers designed to camouflage the phone‘s camera cutout. As spotted by Android Police, Hidey Hole essentially scrapes Reddit for hole-punch wallpapers and stacks them in one place, so you can comfortably choose from a wide range to trick out your S10. What’s especially nifty is the app also lets you adjust the brightnes...

A former Facebook executive raised $3.7 million to fund a game aiming to match the success of 'Pokémon Go'

Former Facebook employee Nikki Lannen has raised €3.3 million ($3.7 million) to fund the development of a new augmented-reality game at her startup WarDucks. The funding round was led venture capital firm EQT Ventures and will help get the new location-based game off the ground in 2020. Lannen left her job at Facebook in 2013 to launch WarDucks, which aims to make its titles "fun" rather than "super-realistic." Former Facebook executive Nikki Lannen has raised nearly $4 million to create a n...

Here's why analysts think Google may want to 'put the brakes' on Pixelbook innovation (GOOG, GOOGL)

Last week, Business Insider learned that Google had moved dozens of employees out of its laptop and tablet division, scaling back the size of its in-house hardware group. On Tuesday, Ben Bajarin, Principal analyst with Creative Strategies, told Business Insider that the employee cutbacks could mean Google's innovation with Pixelbook — the company's homegrown Chromebook product — is winding down.  “It could be that they feel like the goal of the Pixelbook has done what it needed to do and now i...

VMware CEO says Cisco's networking software is like 'a bicycle' compared to his 'Lamborghini' as they fight for cloud dominance (VMW, CSCO, AMZN)

VMware and Cisco's rivalry is as fierce as ever, as both companies fight to stay relevant while their customers ditch old-fashioned tech for the cloud. VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger couldn't help but throw some shade at Cisco in a recent interview, calling its software a "bicycle" compared to VMware's "lamborghini."  Years ago, VMware and its then-parent company EMC were best buddies with Cisco. They even sold their products together in a joint venture that did about $2 billion a year, we reported...

This could be our first look at the Galaxy Fold's rumored creasing issue that Samsung is supposedly trying to fix

A recent video shows creasing down the middle of what is purportedly Samsung's unreleased foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold.  The Galaxy Fold uses a plastic display, which could explain creasing over time.

I tried Samsung’s $750 Galaxy S10e, and I'm convinced it could be the Android phone to beat

At $750, the Galaxy S10e costs significantly less than Samsung's other Galaxy S10 devices, while offering many of the same features. The S10e features a large, attractive screen in a form factor that's more compact than most of its rivals, and its ultra wide-angle camera captures great shots. But when it comes to overall camera performance and display quality, it's about on par with competitors like the iPhone Xr and Google Pixel 3.  Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 lineup represents a few firsts for...

Snapchat admits its age verification safeguards are effectively useless

Snap executives Stephen Collins and Will Scougal were grilled by UK lawmakers on Snapchat's age-verification process. Collins admitted that the system is effectively useless in stopping underage users from signing up to the Snapchat app. He said the systems might catch underage users out if they try to sign up via a web browser — but admitted the mobile app is more popular. Two top Snap executives were grilled by a UK parliamentary committee on Tuesday about failures in Snapchat's age-verific...

This smartphone maker put a selfie camera where no other phone maker has put one before

Chinese smartphone maker ZTE's upcoming smartphone has a selfie camera that sticks out from the main body of the phone. It's a novel design solution to avoid using the divisive notch that was popularized by Apple's iPhone X and adopted by numerous other Android phone makers.  Moving the selfie camera outside the main body of the phone has a few benefits, like allowing more space for a larger battery, and allowing for a full-screen display without interruptions from a notch. It does, however, l...

'I don't trust some computer to drive me around': Trump reportedly says he'd never get in a 'crazy' driverless car

As Axios noted, Trump's administration has largely taken a "hands-off approach" to regulating the rapidly changing self-driving technology, but one source reportedly said Trump could be spurred into action to make the regulatory landscape much tougher for autonomous vehicles.
