    Google has had this feature for a while, and Facebook introduced an enhanced version of it after its recent privacy kerfuffles, but now Apple is joining the personal data download fray with a new privacy portal.

    In it, you would be able to score any information that is pertinent to your account, like the Apple ID profile, App Store downloads, iTunes purchases, iCloud media and documents, even your AppleCare history. Unfortunately, the new Apple ID Data and Privacy website is now only operational in the EU, in order to bring full compliance with the European Union's new General Data Protection ...

    Next-gen iPhone A12 chips enter mass production

    Apple has signed up with TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing) to produce the next generation of chipsets that will go on to power the iPhone 9, Xs and Xs Plus this year. The silicon doesn't have an official name yet, but following Apple's naming scheme, it will likely be called the A12. It will be built on a 7-nanometer process and is expected to be the first of its kind to land in a smartphone when it launches on 2018 iPhone models this fall.


    According to inside sources, cited by Bloomberg, the A12 chipset has just recently entered mass-production. The next generation silicon ...

    HTC U12+: all new features

    The new HTC U12+ is now finally official and it's HTC's best phone of the year, its flagship for 2018. HTC even clarified that it used the U12+ to mark that there is not going to be another plus version in the future, underscoring how important this phone is for the company.


    And while HTC is no longer the poster child for Android success that we knew from a few years ago, it still has high hopes for the U12+ and the new phone is packed with new features and features a camera that is a further improvement over the already great one on the U11.

    After rumors began flowing about Xiaomi's 8th anniversary flagship phone, the company itself took to Twitter to confirm that the Xiaomi Mi 8 is coming Thursday, May 31st. And yes, if you're keeping count, the company has decided to skip the seven and jump to eight, because it is its eighth anniversary.

    A teaser image accompanied the announcement, depicting a number eight with conductive tracks running over it, which didn't seem all that revelatory yesterday, but it does now. How? Well, an alleged live video of the Xiaomi Mi 8 showcases the phone ...

    The HTC U12+, the Taiwan-based company's latest attempt at grabbing is own chunk of the Android market, has just been unveiled with a plethora of neat features on deck. At first sight, the phone will likely captivate you with two of its noteworthy color options, the Translucent Blue and Flamed Red ones which are a breath of fresh air and spice things up, but appearance alone is hardly the single strength of the handset.


    In terms of size, HTC has decided not to blindly follow the notch trend and has instead opted for a more traditional display form factor. The phone itself is ...

    The HTC U12+ is now official, inheriting the mantle from the HTC U11 and aiming to help HTC hold its diminishing ground on the already jam-packed Android market.


    With a Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of native storage, the HTC U12+ is as well-spec'd as any other self-respecting flagship device out there. Of course, it has its fair share of unique features that add tons of merit, namely thanks to its four cameras, promising audio capabilities, and intriguing color options.

    HTC took to the stage and announced a pretty stellar flagship today - the U12+ - with translucent glass version, all the specs bells and whistles, and added touches like the ability to navigate the large 6-incher without even stretching to touch the display, just by tapping or squeezing the sides.

    The four surround sound mics, and the dual front and rear cameras with ultrafast focus only add to the positive impressions, and the U12+ already pegged the highest score for a dual-camera phone on DxO Mark, whatever that means. How much for this beaut, and when can you get it?

    If you thought that HTC has been kicked to the curb after its Pixel-making team of engineers got snatched by Google, the freshly unveiled U12+ flagship will quickly change your opinion. Despite the brain drain, the company really delivered a modern flagship that is up with the best, even though, or perhaps precisely because, it said that it will scale back on its overall 2018 portofolio for obvious reasons.

    So, without further ado, what's the takeaway from the new HTC U12+ announcement? Well, that it is an heir to the U11+, for starters, not the U11, and we'll take it from ...

At one time, some companies are at the top of the world, constantly pushing the envelope with their offerings, and then out of the blue, a series of misses can set them back ? to the point of obscurity even! That's the reality for Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC, who is in a predicament of sorts with its handset division, one that's been on the decline for some time now.

    There was a time in the early days of Android when HTC was heralded as a force to compete against Apple's iPhones. The Taiwanese company was undeniably thought of in high regard by many, but that hasn't been the case in a long while now, especially when its smartphones have failed to generate any considerable buzz. Hopefully, that's all about to change, as the HTC U12+ is out to redeem itself as a formidable flagship smartphone that can stand toe-to-toe against Apple's best, the iPhone X.

Yet another entrant that opted to delay its offering, HTC, is just about ready to unleash what it's bringing to market very soon.

    Here is why OnePlus 6 doesn't have wireless charging

    The OnePlus 6 is truly a flagship killer, but that doesn't mean that it's perfect. One of the features that's missing from OnePlus's top-tier smartphone, but can already be found in other flagships available on the market, is the ability to charge it wirelessly.

    If you've read our full OnePlus 6 review, then you already know the smartphone does not come with wireless charging. Even though the back of the handset is glass-coated, a material that's perfectly fit for a device that includes this particular feature, OnePlus has decided to add wireless charging to the 6.

Based on actual sales, all manufacturers sold a total of 38.7 million handsets in the states during the three months from January through March. That was the first time in three years that quarterly sales in the U.S. totaled less than 40 million units. And it was an 11% decline from the 43.7 million units sold in the same quarter last year.

    Back in February, we told you that AT&T had filed a complaint against fellow carrier T-Mobile with the National Advertising Division (NAD). The latter is administrated by the Better Business Bureau and is "an investigative unit of the advertising industry?s system of self-regulation." AT&T was unhappy with some claims that T-Mobile made in some of its advertisements, and today the NAD recommended that T-Mobile stop calling itself the "Best Unlimited Network."


    The NAD checked out claims made by T-Mobile in its ads including "T-Mobile is America?s Best Unlimited ...

    USB-C to Lightning cable price cut to $19 hints at a change inside the 2018 Apple iPhone box

    Apple cut the price of its 1m USB-C to Lightning cable by 24% today. The new price of $19 is a $6 savings from the previous cost of the accessory. The cable allows certain iPhone and iPad units to engage in fast charging. Perhaps it was by design that the new $19 price of the cable matches the price of the USB-A to Lightning cord that is packed inside the boxes containing a brand new iPhone or iPad.

    That's because there is talk that with the new 2018 iPhone models, Apple will replace the current cable that is included in the box to a USB-C to Lightning one. This ...

    HMD Global raises $100 million so that it can build more Nokia phones

    HMD Global's deal with Nokia to license its name for smartphones has been a rousing success. For example, today's flash sale to launch the Nokia X6 sold out all available inventory in ten seconds. The Nokia brand is on its way to having some relevancy again; the 4.4 million smartphones it sold in the fourth quarter of 2017 topped the number rung up by HTC, OnePlus, Google, Sony and Lenovo during the same period. It makes you wonder what might have been had then Nokia CEO Stephen Elop chosen Android instead of Windows Phone to run Nokia's new connected handsets back in 2011. It was a decision ...

    Verizon rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo update to the LG G6

    It looks like Verizon is the first US carrier to roll out the long-awaited Android 8.0 Oreo update for the LG G6. Unfortunately, Verizon hasn't yet updated the phone's support page, so it's unclear what security patch the update contains.

    However, we do know this is a pretty sizable update, as it weighs in at around 1.9GB, so make sure you have enough storage before attempting to download it. Thanks to a screenshot, we also know some of the changes confirmed to be part of the update: Picture In Picture, Notifications Visual Cleanup, and Notifications Badges.

    Since Verizon has just ...

    Deal: Save $50 on Apple's BeatsX earphones at Best Buy

    Apple's BeatsX earphones are on sale once again at Best Buy and while it's not the biggest discount we've seen to date, it's worth a look. Some retailers are still selling the BeatsX earphones for around $150, but they're usually $120-$130.

    The package contains eartips with four size options, a lightning to USB-A charging cable, a pocket-sized carrying case, the ...

    Deal: Samsung Galaxy Tab A costs less than $200 at Best Buy

    It's true that the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is a rather old tablet and probably obsolete hardware-wise, but for less than $200 it might worth a try. Two years after its debut in the United States, the tablet still sells for around $250-$280 outright.

    However, Best Buy has decided to make the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 even more appealing. Until the end of the day, the tablet costs just $199.99, so customers would save $80 if they purchase Samsung's Galaxy Tab slate.

    It's worth noting that the Black color variant is the only one that's on sale, so don't try to get the White model unless you don't ...
