Apple finally took the wraps off the iPhone 12 series last night. This year, the Cupertino-based giant did things a bit differently like launching four iPhone variants, or putting its Super Retina XDR OLED display across the whole range. Apple announced that all the iPhone 12 models will come with 5G support, and all will be powered by the same A14 Bionic chip that Apple first introduced with the iPad Air last month. Apple has priced the new iPhone’s starting at Rs. 69,900 onwards for the iPhone 12 Mini, while the iPhone 12 costs Rs. 79,900 onwards.

Apple’s iPhone event has been moved to October for 2020.

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

The Apple Store went offline on Tuesday, just hours before the company’s iPhone 12 launch event was set to kick off (here’s how to watch the Apple event live). Usually held in September, the event has moved to October this year in order to accommodate delays to the new phone rollout caused by COVID-19. But the event should be worth the wait. We’re expecting to see Apple launch its first ever 5G iPhone, as well as a new HomePod and more.

The disappearance of the Apple Store is nothing out of the ordinary. Apple usually pulls its online store down ahead of major events, especially if new products are set to be announced. After the event, the store

Before iOS 14 officially became available on Sept. 16, data miners somehow gained access to an unreleased copy of the software. After digging around in the code, they supposedly found clues that hinted at an unannounced pair of headphones and several other devices. To date, Apple has never manufactured its own full-size headphones and opted to stick

Stepping ‘beyond binary’ to store data in more than just 0s and 1s — ScienceDaily

Electronic data is being produced at a breath-taking rate.

The total amount of data stored in data centres around the globe is of the order of ten zettabytes (a zettabyte is a trillion gigabytes), and we estimate that amount doubles every couple of years.

With 8% of global electricity already being consumed in information and communication technology (ICT), low-energy data-storage is a key priority.

To date there is no clear winner in the race for next-generation memory that is non-volatile, has great endurance, highly energy efficient, low cost, high density, and allows fast access operation.

The joint international team comprehensively reviews ‘multi-state memory’ data storage, which steps ‘beyond binary’ to store more data than just 0s and 1s.

MULTI-STATE MEMORY: MORE THAN JUST ZEROES AND ONES

Multi-state memory is an extremely promising technology for future data storage, with the ability to store data in more than a single bit (ie,

Epic Won’t Get Immediate Access To App Store

A federal judge Friday (Oct.9) denied a request by Epic Games to make Apple reinstate Epic’s Fortnite game on its App Store before a lawsuit Epic brought against Apple is resolved at trial, according to The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

Epic sued Apple in August, accusing the technology giant of violating laws that restrict anti-competitive behavior. The suit, filed in federal court for the Northern District of California, alleges Apple has harmed both game-makers and payment processors and asks the court to compel Apple to grant easier access to the App Store.

Apple denied the allegations.

With the case grinding its way toward a scheduled May 2021 trial, Epic in August asked the court to issue a preliminary injunction making Apple open the App Store to Fortnite on a temporary basis. To prevail, Epic had to show both that it would suffer irreparable

US judge rules Apple could bar Epic Games’s ‘Fortnite’ from App Store

  • A US judge in California ruled Friday that Apple could bar Epic Games’s “Fortnite” game from its App Store, but the tech company must not harm Epic’s developer tools business.
  • “The Court maintains its findings from the temporary restraining order and hereby grants in part and denies in part Epic Games’ motion for a preliminary injunction,” District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled.
  • Last month, Epic Games had filed for a preliminary injunction that would put its game back in the App Store and restore its developer account after Apple terminated Epic Games’ account on its App Store.
  • Epic sued Apple in August alleging anticompetitive behavior. The lawsuit came after Epic rolled out its own payment system in the popular Fortnite video game.
  • Apple does not allow such alternative payment systems and removed Fortnite from the App Store and threatened to terminate Epic’s developer accounts, which would have affected Epic’s other

Apple Doesn’t Have To Reinstate Fortnite To The App Store, Judge Rules

Topline

A judge ruled Friday that Apple doesn’t have to allow Fortnite back in the App Store while its developer, Epic Games, sues the tech giant—an initial victory for Apple as the high-stakes legal battle over the App Store unfolds.

Key Facts

Apple removed Fortnite from the App Store in August after Epic intentionally breached its contract by circumventing Apple’s mandatory fees, claiming that Apple’s policies are anticompetitive.

U.S. District Judge Yvonnne Gonzalez Rogers wasn’t convinced that Fortnite should be allowed on the App Store while it flouts Apple’s rules. “Epic Games cannot simply exclaim ‘monopoly’ to rewrite agreements giving itself unilateral benefit,” she said.

Epic Games did notch a victory, though, because the

Microsoft digs at Apple with 10 principles for app store fairness, but they won’t apply to Xbox

Microsoft published and committed to following a list of 10 principles in its treatment of third-party apps on Windows, capitalizing on the ongoing backlash against Apple over the iPhone maker’s revenue sharing policies and restrictions on cloud streaming services in the iOS App Store.

The commitments include giving developers “the freedom to choose whether to distribute their apps for Windows through our app store,” and promising to allow competing app stores on Windows. In addition, Microsoft said in the post that it “will not block an app from Windows based on a developer’s business model or how it delivers content and services, including whether content is installed on a device or streamed from the cloud.”

The principles, published Thursday morning by Rima Alaily, Microsoft deputy general counsel, largely restate Microsoft’s existing practices. The company says it’s building on the ideas of the Coalition for App Fairness, which includes Epic Games,

Angela Lang/CNET

Microsoft announced 10 new app store principles in a blog post Thursday, needling Apple and Google’s policies in the process. The new principles are intended to promote choice, fairness and innovation for software developers on Windows 10.

“Developers will have the freedom to choose whether to distribute their apps for Windows through our app store. We will not block competing app stores on Windows.” the first principle reads.

“Windows 10 is an open platform. Unlike some other popular digital platforms, developers are free to choose how they distribute their apps,” the tech giant wrote, alluding to Apple and Google.

Those companies are embroiled in a legal battle with Fortnite developer Epic over fees they charge in their respective app stores.

Earlier this month, lawmakers from the
