Prior to the release of the iPhone X, Apple was rumored to be working on an in-display fingerprint reader for iPhones, but scrapped it due to poor responsiveness and reliability. Considering how crappy many in-display fingerprint sensors on Android phones are, Apple probably made the right call.
Apple is breaking a 15-year partnership with Intel on its Macs — here's why. Apple's new laptops and desktop uses its own chips, instead of processors from Intel. Apple is making the move because it already makes its own phone and tablet processors, and it says it can improve laptop battery life.
With macOS 10.15, Apple has killed its famous Dashboard feature completely. This comes after Apple made it increasingly hard to access with last year's Mojave release. In macOS Catalina, Dashboard is nowhere to be found at all.
1. The green tint issue may be a combination of software and hardware issues with faulty OLED displays that are being impacted in recent iOS updates, reported Forbes. Apple has announced it has stopped signing iOS 13.5, meaning users cannot downgrade their iPhone software from iOS 13.5. 1.

CDs were replaced by DVDs because they offered a lot more storage. But flash memory cards, such as the one Apple includes with the Air, are already blowing DVDs out of the water when it comes to storage. They may still be more expensive to produce, but Apple has clearly figured out a way to make it work.
In a discussion between Apple uber-fan Jon Gruber and Apple VP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi, Federighi said that Boot Camp wouldn't make it onto the new Macs and that "virtualization is the route," citing the efficiency of modern hypervisors.
Why did Apple remove a common audio connector? The 3.5mm jack is over 50-years-old and doesn't do much besides carry an audio signal.
