If you’re looking to buy an iPhone that can hold its value, look no further than Apple’s iPhone X. In a recent study, liquidation company B-Stock examined which iPhone does the best job of holding its value. The iPhone X came out on top by retaining 85% of its original value in a secondary market. Companies that buy the iPhone X in bulk to resell the handset are acquiring it for 75% of its retail price, B-Stock discovered, according to 9to5Mac, which obtained a copy of the study.

Apple to completely revamp Apple Maps.jpeg

Apple has today announced that it is in the process of completely rebuilding Apple Maps, writes TechCrunch. The new version has been built using first-party data obtained from iPhones and also from Apple’s own special fleet of cars that have been kitted out with sensors and cameras.

The new maps are set to launch first in San Francisco, then in the Bay Area, via the next iOS 12 Beta, coming to the whole of Northern California by fall.

The updated maps, which will eventually roll out all over the world, will respond more quickly to changes in roads and construction, and will also be more visually detailed, depending on the location, with more detailed ground cover, foliage, pools, pedestrian walkways, and so on.

LG Display to become Apple's second OLED supplier for iPhone X.jpeg
Bloomberg reports that it looks as though LG Display has finally been successful in its bid to become Apple’s second supplier of OLED displays for the iPhone X, joining Samsung, which was, until this point, Apple’s sole supplier of OLED displays for iPhone X

Bloomberg says that there were two main reasons behind Apple wanting to add another OLED supplier to its roster. Firstly, it wants to lessen iPhone production costs, and secondly, it does not want to be solely dependent on Samsung for its supplies.

According to Bloomberg’s source, LG Display will initially supply Apple with between 2 million to 4 million units, as its ability to produce at high volume is still developing.

Although the initial OLED production run for LG is small in relation to iPhone X sales, it should be enough...

Apple to launch new AirPods and over ear headphones next year.jpeg
According to an exclusive new report from Bloomberg, Apple is set to launch several new audio products next year, including new high-end AirPods, a new HomePod, and studio-quality over-ear headphones.

Bloomberg’s sources say that Apple intends to update the AirPods range with noise-cancellation and water-resistance features, although the latter is said to be only enough to guard against perspiration or rain, so don’t expect to be able to swim in your AirPods just yet. The company is also planning to extend the range of AirPods so that they can be further away from an iOS device and still function.

It’s thought that the new-and-improved AirPods will cost more than the current versions, which are priced at $159 per pair. The source ventured that Apple might make the AirPods range...
