The12 Mini is the cheapest one at $699 and the Pro Max is the most expensive of the bunch standing at $1099, and most feature-rich as well.

What’s New?

Apple has made significant changes to the new generation of iPhones. There is a lot to talk about.


On September 16th, Apple released iOS 14 along with new iPads and Apple watches. Surprisingly, no new iPhone was announced in that event, which is a sign of another event in October in which the Company will announce the new additions to the iPhone family. Strange but true, they released a new version of iOS before the iPhone, but without a further, ado let’s get into the features.

Xbox series S is the more affordable version of the Next-Gen gaming console from Microsoft and successor to the Xbox One S, but, this time it’s all digital. So, no optical drive, and if you are someone who loves buying a physical copy of the game then series X would be perfect for you. It will definitely attract some of the crowd, who does not want an expensive console and still want to have a Next-Gen gaming experience.

We cannot compare this to Xbox series X, because both the consoles are…


Did they do it right this time?

Samsung.com

Samsung always amazes everyone with the design of their phones and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is no different. It has the same design elements as its new Flagship galaxy series device, which by the way are handsome phones, but a folding screen gives Galaxy fold 2, a distinct look. With that 6.2 inches outer screen, it looks gorgeous. I can keep on going all-day about how premium and beautiful the phone looks, but that is not all this phone is about.

Let’s talk a little bit about the old Galaxy Fold, no…

Could this bring Microsoft back into the smartphone realm or is it going to be another disaster?

Microsoft.com

The company’s last effort to make a smartphone of their own wasn’t so successful. They launched their last windows phone in 2016, which was a complete failure, and they are back after 4 years into the smartphone market with their Surface phone, but what are they doing differently this time, which could make it a success for the company?

I purchased an Alexa device not too long ago, after buying that I was like, why not buy smart bulbs and some other devices to go with that. for what reason, so that I don’t have to move from one place to turn off the lights or any other appliances. Yes, that’s true, I do not want to move a single muscle to do all that, because I’d rather lie in bed for 2 more minutes. That’s my mindset nowadays.

How is it affecting me?

I’m working from home, not getting out of the house because…
