How to Charge your iPhone With the New MacBook Pro

Apple wants USB-C to be the new standard, and it’s undoubtedly a great connector, but during the switch, you’ll be stuck using dongles and adapters to connect the devices Apple left behind (which ironically includes the latest iPhone models). Use a USB-C ...

Ryan Perkins/Shutterstock.com By not including buttons, Apple made the interface for AirPods non-existent. But that’s fine because they’re full of sensors, so they know when they’re in your ears, and when you double-tap them. And you can configure all of those things. The sensors built into every pair of AirPods allow for some great features. For example, out of the box (and by default), Automatic Ear Detection means that AirPods will start the playback of audio when you put them in your e...
