Apple recently received approval for two US patents that includes sketches of a MacBook with integrated reverse-charging coils capable of wirelessly charging an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch. These charging coils are located beneath the trackpad and palm rest areas. Apparently, there are coils in the top lid for charging purposes when the laptop is closed in clamshell mode. Similar to how the iPhone 12 has built-in magnets on the back, these special areas on the MacBook will have them as well.
Limited to just a single unit worldwide, Caviar’s AirPods Max “Golden White” just might be the most expensive version yet at $108,000 USD. Why is it so expensive? Well, the luxury retailer covered Apple’s latest wireless headphones in 750g of 18K gold and wrapped the headband in white crocodile leather. For a finishing touch, they added two 18L gold rings with Caviar inscription. Unfortunately (or fortunately), there have been no audio upgrades.
Tesla may have some competition in the self-driving electric car realm from Apple in the near future, and they’ll be partnering with TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing) for the brain. The chips from TSMC are expected to be used in the Apple Car some time between 2023 and 2025. Yesterday, Apple transferred its self-driving car team, who worked under the code name Project Titan, to artificial intelligence and machine learning head John Giannandrea.

Caviar is a company known for their luxurious smartphones, tablets and watches. Their latest creation, the iPhone 12 Pro Stealth, is definitely no exception. However, this puts a new twist on luxury, with a touch of privacy. They take Apple’s latest handset – both the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, remove the original case, and then add a chassis made from made of hardened titanium, but without the cameras.
Apple opened pre-orders for the iPhone 12 Mini this week, and currently, it’s the world’s smallest, thinnest, as well as lightest 5G smartphone. Featuring a 5.4″ edge-to-edge Super Retina XDR display, A14 Bionic processor, 4GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage, and five colorful finishes — blue, green, black, white, and (PRODUCT)RED8. Its Ceramic Shield front cover is tougher than any smartphone glass ever made, complete with IP68 water resistance.
