Apple has unveiled the Apple One subscription bundle in India. Apple will provide six services under the Apple One subscription such as Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and iCloud. The Apple Fitness+ powered by Apple Watch will be available later in 2020. Apple first mentioned the integrated platform at its online event in September.

Apple One went live in India on Friday at around 10:30 pm. During the quarterly earnings call on Thursday, Apple CEO Tim Cook had announced that the Apple One will launch “tomorrow”, which means Friday in the US.

Apple One Individual Plan comes with Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade along with 50 GB storage of iCloud at Rs 195 per month. However, if you check the individual prices of the services it would cost you Rs 99 per month for Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, and Apple Arcade each. For iCloud, you would end up paying Rs 75. So if the total goes up to Rs 372 but if you buy the Apple One Individual Plan, you would only pay Rs 195.

The second plan in the lineup is called Apple One Family Plan, which is priced at Rs 365 per month. The plan comes with Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage that can be shared with up to six family members. Now if you look at the individual pricing of the services, Apple Music Family would cost you Rs 149 per month, Apple TV Plus and Apple Arcade are priced at Rs 99 each, and 200GB iCloud storage would cost Rs 219 per month. So the total here goes up to Rs 667. But if you go for the Apple One Family plan, you would end paying way lesser than Rs 667.

The third plan in the list is called the Apple One Premier but it is only available in counties like Australia and the United States. The plan has not been rolled out to Indian users. This plan includes all the benefits of the Apple One Family plus plan, Apple News Plus, and Apple Fitness Plus.

Samsung Galaxy S21 (2021) Redefine Concept Introduction

Published

on

Samsung Galaxy S21, the next flagship series from the South Korean tech major, is expected to launch in January next year, and the phones could go on sale by the end of the month. In the latest leak, tipster Jon Prosser has revealed the launch, sale, and pre-order dates of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 phones on Twitter. The Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra launch will take place on January 14, 2021 and pre-orders will start on the same day. The tipster also claims that the devices will go on sale on January 29.

Samsung’s flagship lineup sees the S series launch in the first half of the year, while the Note series comes in the second half. While some reports are claiming the brand will launch the phones with Samsung Galaxy S30 name label, others are saying Galaxy S21 will be the official name.

Prosser in his tweet also revealed the colour variants of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series. These are black, white, grey, silver, violet, and pink. While the features of the devices are yet to be revealed, several leaks have already suggested what could be the possible specifications of the new phones. Here’s everything we know so far.

Samsung Galaxy S21 price (expected)

The Samsung Galaxy S21 price is expected to start from $999, which is around Rs 74,640 in India. The Galaxy S21 Plus could cost $1,199 (around Rs 89,580), whereas the Galaxy S21 Ultra $1,399 (approximately Rs 104,529).

Samsung Galaxy S21 series: Specifications

As per the leaks, the Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S30 phones will sport a punch-hole display design. The cutout will be placed on the upper right side of the display. The handsets will also have slim bezels. The design of the phones will be almost similar to the Samsung Galaxy S20 series.

The leaked renders showed that the volume rockers and power button will be located on the right edge. The standard version is expected to come with a compact 6.2-inch flat display. The screen of the Galaxy S21 Ultra could measure between 6.7 and 6.9 inches. It is expected to come with a slightly curved display and could include support for the S Pen, which would be a first in the S series. However, the device might lack any slot for the brand’s signature stylus.

The phones will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor in some markets. Samsung is expected to announce its own Exynos 1080 processor on November 12. This chip is based on the 5nm process. But this is not going to power the S21 series, according to a report on Sam Mobile. The devices will run the Exynos 2100 chipset, depending on the region.

The most premium version in the series is rumoured to pack a 108-megapixel primary camera and a 40-megapixel snapper for selfies. The Galaxy S21 series could also see the introduction of a new under-display selfie camera. Again, Samsung could limit this new technology to the most premium flagship in the series, which would be the S21 Ultra.

On the software side, the Galaxy S21 will ship with One UI 3.0, which will be based on Android 11. The Samsung Galaxy S21 series was recently spotted on 3C certification. The site hinted that the standard version will offer a 4,000mAh battery, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S21+ is tipped to feature a 4,660mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will reportedly have a 5,000mAh battery. All three phones are expected to ship with a 25W fast charger.

New features on WhatsApp

WhatsApp the messaging platform is at the helm of social media applications. Run by Facebook one of the four Big Tech companies, its features complement those of its sister platforms like Instagram and Facebook. So if any feature exists on one of these platforms, expect it to show up on all eventually. For instance Stories. By imitating the Snapchat model of quick short-lived stories, Instagram mastered it, further emulating it on Facebook and WhatsApp.

In a big to keep the app updated and fresh, new features are introduced every once in awhile. Take a look at what to expect!

WhatsApp regularly updates the app with new features. It also tests unreleased features on its beta app for Android and iPhone. Recently, WhatsApp has been focusing on privacy and control of spam on the platform. It has rolled out features to help curb these issues on WhatsApp.

In terms of UI change, the app will soon roll our dark mode on Android and iPhone. WhatsApp dark mode is expected to arrive with iOS 13 and Android Q update. While we wait for that, there are other features available now on WhatsApp. If you’re a frequent WhatsApp user, these are some features you can use right now. WhatsApp has confirmed its new exciting disappearing messages feature which, once enabled, will make new messages sent in individual or group chats disappear after seven days.

As per the information provided on the support page, enabling the settings will not affect the messages previously sent or received in chat. While the users can themselves turn disappearing messages on and off for individual chats, in a group chat, only the admins will get to use the feature. With this, if a user does not open WhatsApp in the seven-day period, the message will disappear, but its preview might still be displayed in notifications until the App is opened. The feature, as per the App, will not work if the disappearing message is forwarded, and in case the user creates a backup, however, when the user restores from a backup.

As per the settings for media download, if auto-download is turned on the receiving phone the images, videos will be automatically saved on the device. There, however, is no option of customizing the time frame after which the messages will be deleted.

WhatsApp is hard at work making its hugely-popular app even better. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen the launch of disappearing messages which, as the name suggests, makes text messages self-destruct after a week, coupled with the introduction of a new storage setting designed to allow users to quickly find and remove content filling up their precious memory.

And now, it seems WhatsApp is working on two more updates – one aimed at Android users, and another designed for those with an iPhone.

The first change that’s coming to Android looks set to allow users of this Google-powered operating system to access more exciting wallpapers than what’s currently available.

As spotted by the team at WABetainfo it appears that there will be a total of 32 bright wallpapers and another 29 designed for dark mode. It seems you’ll even be able to set unique background patterns for different chats and adjust exactly how they look to suit your tastes.

This upgrade is currently in the beta phase of testing but a launch could come soon.
