2020 iPhone Lineup: 5G, Smaller iPhone, and More!
A new report suggests that the 2020 iPhone lineup may be the phones worth waiting for. Credible Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that next year’s iPhone lineup will include some big upgrades: including 5G support, a larger 6.7 inch Plus model, and a smaller, more handheld 5.4-inch premium iPhone. Fans have long been clamoring for Apple to bring back a premium iPhone in a smaller form-factor and this new phone could be it. Along with the flagships, Kuo says Apple is also working on a 6.1 inch budget phone model with an OLED display but support with the only LTE. All of this seems much more exciting than this year, as this only big rumored feature is a third camera lens.
Google is stepping in to roll out support for RCS because carriers are taking way too long. The tech giant has been pushing the updated alternative to SMS for a while now, but with slow carrier roll out and adoption, Google is stepping in to speed things up. Google says it will provide RCS to Android devices in select locations over the coming months, allowing users to upgrade to RCS without the need to wait for a carrier. RCS brings lots of modern features to standard SMS, including read receipts, typing indicators, support for high res photos and videos.
Google is being accused of blatantly stealing music lyrics and re-posting them to Google search results. Lyrics website Genius says that Google has been blatantly copying song lyrics from its sites for years, even going as far as to put a special morse code in select songs to prove that Google is copying the info from Genius. Google denies the allegations, saying it licsenses song lyrics from a number of different data partners and is looking into the issue.
