πŸ’‘ 4 Things To Know This Week

πŸ’» Why You Shouldn't Put A Case On Your MacBook link​

  • Putting a case on a MacBook can do more harm than good. Unlike iPhones, MacBooks have a hinge that a poorly designed or fitted case can damage.
  • Cases can apply unnecessary stress to the hinge in a variety of ways, such as excess weight or attachment mechanisms that prevent the lid from closing properly. This can cause internal electronic issues and weaken the mechanism over years of use.
  • Using a MacBook sleeve instead of a hardshell case can provide protection without risking stress on the hinge or lid.

πŸ”₯ 20.3-inch foldable MacBook expected in 2027 link​

  • Apple's first foldable screen might not be the iPhone or iPad. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reported that Apple is planning to release a 20-inch MacBook with a foldable screen in around three years.
  • This would be Apple's only foldable product with a clear development schedule, according to Kuo.
  • However, he did not provide any additional details about the device, including its exact design. The new foldable MacBook would have a screen that measures around 20 inches diagonally when fully expanded.

πŸ“± New iPhone SE 4 leak reveals big-screen overhaul with a notch and Face ID link​

  • According to a CAD render obtained by 91mobiles, the upcoming 4th-gen iPhone SE will feature a 6.1-inch screen and a notch similar in size to those on the iPhone 13/14 series, and will include Face ID technology.
  • The single rear camera lens will remain unchanged from the 2022 iPhone SE, which has prompted speculation about the possibility of adding a second lens.
  • There is also a rumor that the phone may include an Action Button, a feature that was introduced in the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.

πŸ“² Apple will make it easier to switch from iPhone to Android link​

  • Apple is developing a tool that aims to make it easier for users to switch their data from an iPhone to an Android or another operating system. The tool is being developed as part of Apple's compliance with the European Union's Digital Market Act.
  • The company plans to make the solution available by fall 2025 but it may only be available in the EU.
  • However, a recent survey found that 13% of US iPhone buyers had previously owned an Android device, suggesting that more people might use this tool than expected.

βš™οΈ 3 Hacks You Should Try This Week

πŸ—‘οΈ The ultimate guide to empty trash on iPhone link​

  • Knowing how to manage iPhone storage is crucial, and one way is by emptying the trash folders. Unlike Macs, iPhones lack a unified recycle bin, but many native apps have a Recently Deleted folder storing items for 30 days.
  • To clear space, you must empty this folder for each app separately. The guide explains step-by-step how to empty the trash in various iPhone apps like Photos, Files, Mail, Notes, Messages, Voice Memos, and Voicemail, ensuring efficient storage management and device performance.

πŸ’¬ How to Format Text on WhatsApp like Bold, Italics, and Strikethrough link​

  • WhatsApp offers some text formatting options on iPhone, Android, and even the web version. It lets you enhance the text message with bold, italics, monospace, strikethrough, and more.
  • This is especially helpful when you type a long message. You can highlight by making a few words bold or make headings with it. Similarly, italics and strikethroughs help you liven and spice up the conversation.
  • So, open the app, and let me show you how to compose WhatsApp messages with these text styles.

πŸ€– Set Siri to Read Incoming Messages in a Different Language link​

  • iOS 17.4 introduces a new feature where Siri can read incoming messages in languages of your choice. This update expands Siri’s capabilities beyond just sending dictated messages, making it useful for bilingual individuals or those learning a new language.
  • You can select from a variety of languages and even add multiple languages to the list. The process involves updating to iOS 17.4, accessing Siri & Search settings, and selecting the desired languages for message reading.

πŸ“² 3 Apps You Should Download This Week

1️⃣ Touchgrind BMX 2 link​

  • Remember the days when everything became an obstacle course for our toy BMX bikes? From the creases in our duvets to the spines of our school books, our imagination knew no bounds.
  • Now, thanks to Touchgrind BMX 2, those childhood skills are making a comeback. With your digital bike tearing down jump-filled tracks, performing tricks is as simple as flicking your fingers on the screen.
  • At first, it may seem like chaos, but as you master the art of trickery and learn to link moves together, the game takes on a whole new level of excitement. Finding the balance between control and chaos is key as you flip, spin, and whip your way through the levels.
  • With bonus bikes, nine unique levels, and 40 challenges per level, Touchgrind BMX 2 offers endless excitement and nostalgia – without the funny looks you'd get playing with a toy BMX on the train.

2️⃣ Super Starfish link​

  • You really have to see Super Starfish in motion to fully appreciate it. This mesmerising high-score challenge will have you swimming past incoming hazards on a mission to collect shooting stars and cosmic shells. As you glide through infinity, the colours swirl around you like intergalactic oils.
  • What you may love is a host of cute little critters to collect along the way – from Chippa the Striped Pyjama Squid to Goldo the Goldfish – the game keeps you engrossed with its superb graphic animations and tantalisingly tricky gameplay.
  • Don’t let the animations distract you too much: misjudge your route once, and your chance of nailing a new personal best is gone until your next try. Keep your eyes aimed at the top of the screen to track every incoming fireball, black hole and meteor, and slip through the tiny gaps between them.

3️⃣ Mowing Mazes link​

  • The grass is always greener in Mowing Mazes – and it’s always growing! Hop on a mower and swipe through bite-size labyrinths, trimming every inch of lush lawn. Zip through tunnels, launch off ramps, and upgrade your mower (and your outfit) as you solve hundreds of relaxing puzzles.
  • What you may love is the quirky characters you meet as you mow. Like Dr. Amber Croft, a historian investigating the mysterious Evermaze that you’re stuck in. Or Edward, an accountant who just wants to open a fashion boutique. (Eventually, you can buy snazzy new duds at his store!)
  • Found a key? You’ve got a set number of moves to reach the side gate before it closes. But no need to panic: if you don’t make it, the key will reappear in its original spot – just try again!
