New iPhones and iPads can charge AirPods, Apple Watch, and Apple Pencil through their screens

Published

on

It is reported that the new iPhones and iPads will soon be getting a feature that will allow you to charge accessories through the screen. This information is contained in a patent filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Patent drawings confirm that wireless charging can work on one side of the screen while keeping the other side functional. However, it is not yet clear whether it will be possible to use a smartphone or tablet while charging accessories.

This feature only supports charging accessories such as AirPods, Apple Watch, and Apple Pencil. It comes in handy when your headphones or smartwatch run down unexpectedly and there is no recharge on hand.

In addition, the upcoming iPhone 14 should be without a SIM slot, so only eSIM cards are supported for connectivity. It is also reported that there will be support for two eSIM cards.

Previously, there were rumors that Apple was planning to remove the Lightning port from smartphones. This, along with removing the SIM card slot, is an important step towards being completely waterproof.

Apple is no longer required to include EarPods with every iPhone sold in France. This was reported by the French thematic resource Consomac, citing explanations published by the French retailer Fnac.

An era is gone: the headphones from the iPhone kit will disappear even in France

iPhone package for France

Why is this news interesting not only to the French? The fact is that since the release of the iPhone 12 in 2020, Apple has removed EarPods and chargers from all its smartphones, explaining this step by caring for the environment. However, an exception was made – in France, the law required that the headphones be kept in the box. As a result, a special package was produced for France – a regular box with an iPhone was packed into another larger box with EarPods.

Now everything will change. As of January 24, Apple is no longer required to include headphones in the box with every iPhone, even in France. The new law was adopted at the end of 2021 and is also designed to reduce the impact of humanity on the environment.

Apple’s decision to slash the iPhone’s packaging has sparked controversy in other countries as well. For example, in Brazil, Apple was fined $2 million for not including a power adapter in the iPhone box.

Published

Tesla now has the ability to sell audio equipment under its own brand. The automaker filed for a trademark in the new category two weeks ago.

Tesla has applied to use the “Tesla” and “T” trademarks. The category covers microphones, headphones, digital audio players, sound transmitters, speakers, subwoofers, ear pads, audio interfaces, equalizers, and so on.

It is important to note that companies sometimes apply for trademarks that they end up not using. For one reason, Tesla designs its own speaker for its vehicles and labels them with its own brand and logo. Or Tesla may actually be designing its own headphones.

Tesla can now produce its own headphones and speakers

In recent years, Tesla has paid special attention to the sound system of its vehicles. The sound system in the Model 3 has been well received by audiophiles, and the sound system in the new version of the Model S also received positive reviews. It has been compared to the expensive Bang & Olufsen system often used in premium cars. At the same time, Elon Musk commented on this comparison: “Tesla audio engineers came from B&O and many other companies. Our system is well programmed, so we continue to improve it with updates.”

More recently, Tesla has also hired several engineers from Jawbone and Amazon Lab126, where they are developing the Echo speakers.

Published

Launched almost a year ago, the Realme Buds Air 2 have been very well received by the general public thanks to their excellent value for money. The question is whether, through the improvements proposed by the Realme Buds Air 3, they will arouse as much interest.

MySmartPrice is an online research and information platform on the latest technologies: mobile phones, headphones, household appliances, computers, etc. Recently, she brought to light the characteristics of the Buds Air 3 headphones from the Realme brand.

Of course, the Chinese firm plans for improvements, but our source claimed that she also preferred to keep some of the peculiarities of the Buds Air 2 headphones.

Realme Buds Air 2 vs. Realme Buds Air 3

Why would it be interesting to compare two products from the same supplier? In fact, this is to give you an idea of ​​the improvements made in the Realme Buds Air 3 compared to its predecessor.

Some of the biggest assets of the Buds Air 2 are:

  • The custom R2 chip, with 35% lower game mode latency and up to 80% longer battery life than its predecessor.
  • 10mm speakers. Thanks to its DLC carbon coating, the helmet produces very rich bass, embellished with a perfectly clear sound;
  • An ANC (active noise cancellation) option, reducing noise by up to 25 decibels;
  • The Bass Boost+ mode which improves the bass and maximizes the power of the speakers.
  • Its long battery life, up to 22.5 hours in playback mode with ANC activated. By disabling this option, this duration can go up to 25 hours.

What about Buds Air 3? In fact, for this new version, the firm would offer:

  • Better battery life, up to 30 hours in playback mode, ANC off;
  • The ability to customize the audio experience according to user preferences;
  • The ability to connect the headphones to two devices, simultaneously. In fact, it would be possible to switch between the two connected devices.

Could these improvements be of interest to consumers?

Note first that the design of the Realme Buds Air 3 should be similar to that of the Buds Air 2. Similarly, the brand would have preferred to keep the Bass Boost+ mode (rather than improving it), as well as the intra detection function. -auricular. This allows music playback to be automatically interrupted regardless of the earpiece removed. Just like the previous model, the Realme Buds Air 3 will obviously have low latency in game mode.

The estimated price of this product is around 4,000 rupees (47 €), compared to 3,299 rupees (39 €) for the Buds Air 2 when they were launched.
