The much awaited Apple Self Service Repair program is officially available!
This program was unveiled by Apple last year and promised to give customers an option to DIY their device repair. This week, the program has finally launched in the US and gives more than 200 genuine Apple parts and repair tools for specific iPhone models: the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone SE (2022).
Earlier this week, there were reports that carriers were blocking Apple’s new Private Relay feature. The report comes after European carriers reportedly blocked the feature already. Considering that T-Mobile’s European counterpart was among those who blocked the feature, many decided to check with the US carrier.
For quite some time now, Google Fi has been offering its VPN service to its customers as a way of protecting their data while browsing the internet. The service, however, has exclusively been available to Android device users. Thankfully, iOS users no longer have to feel left out of this service.
In an unexpected turn of events, Apple is giving out a rare carrier subsidy when you purchase their new 5G iPad Pro. Considering these kinds of promotions are common on smartphones, it’s kind of a surprise that it is offered on these tablets too.
First of all, drug use is never a good idea. Secondly, taking full advantage of the features of today’s wearable devices during drug binges is also a very bad thing to do.

Perhaps because Spotify was already deep into the music streaming business way before Apple Music entered into the competition, the former is enjoying a sizable lead against the former, especially in terms of the total volume of their respective customer bases.
Apple Maps is already around six years old, but back when it made its debut in 2012, it had to go through lots of issues and even criticism from casual consumers and hardcore tech enthusiasts. While it is true that the navigation service and mobile mapping app has since huge leaps in improvement, it appears that Apple is still not content.
One of the biggest developments this week is Apple’s official unveiling of iOS 12 (the upcoming newest version of its mobile operating system) during this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). According to the tech giant, the focus of iOS 12 is to improve performance and optimization, and fans of the mobile brand will no doubt be wanting to experience those cool new features when iOS 12 launches later this year.
It was back in 2015 when Apple first confirmed the existence of its CarPlay offering. Fast forwarding to three years later, the tech giant is now celebrating the fact that CarPlay connectivity is now made available in over 400 different cars.
