Apple officially launched this week with the launch of the Apple Card. The Goldman Sachs-supported card is now rolling out to users who signed up to learn more on Apple's website. We took care of Apple Card earlier this week and detailed application process, as well as all the new features of the Wallet app to manage your balance and more.
This week, Apple released iOS 13 Developer beta 6, as well as Public Beta 5. The updates include several notable changes and enhancements, including new ways to control Dark Mode, redesigned folders, hiding link preview and more. Check out our entire video for all the changes.
A reliable Twitter leak this week has suggested that Apple will call this year's iPhone "iPhone 11 Pro." Details here are very unclear, but this source has accurately named iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR before its release.
Meanwhile, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo published a new investor note this week predicting that Apple will release an iPhone with both Face ID and Touch ID in 2021. The analyst believes Apple is working on developing Touch ID technology in the screen, and probably consider the two biometric technologies as complementary.
