This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters. Apple's new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are now on sale. But before you preorder one of the three new phones, you'll want to know all about their most promising features and what they're missing compared to their rivals. Earlier this week, we spent some time with all three iPhones. Here's what we found, from the three cameras and matte steel casings of the iPhone 11 Pro to what that midnight green color looks like in real life. The iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max start at $699, $999 and $1,099, respectively. These new iPhones pick up a fresh palette of colors, longer battery life and a A13 Bionic processor inside that promises faster performance. But more than any other feature, it's the camera hardware and software that take the headlining role. Keep in mind that we're holding off any final buying advice until we get a chance to fully test the … [Read more...] about New iPhone 11, Pro or Max buyers: Read this first

Apple's iPad lineup has had a gap in it lately. Further Reading2018 iPad Pro review: “What’s a computer?”At the top end, you had the 2018 refresh of the iPad Pro—an immensely powerful, envelope-pushing tablet priced and positioned as a laptop replacement. At the bottom, you had the entry-level iPad, which lacked many of the best features in newer Apple products and shipped with a CPU much slower than what's in the latest iPhones. You were either buying a monster of a tablet for a monster price, or you were getting a tablet that compromised a lot to compete with Chromebooks at the low end. Apple was still making an iPad mini last year, but it was woefully outdated. Many of us wanted more than the entry-level iPad offered but nevertheless saw a tablet as a secondary device, not a replacement for our main workhorses. That meant we weren't willing to pay iPad Pro prices. As a result, I held on to my aging, first-generation iPad Air (2013) through last year. I … [Read more...] about iPad Air and iPad mini 2019 review: Apple’s tablets strike an ideal balance
JOSH AND LANE (4:12 p.m.) Now they’re talking about the charge of aggravated child abuse, and what definition they should give the jurors. “I’m not sure aggravated child abuse applies at all,” Manuele says. “The only thing someone could say is that it caused death,” says the judge. “Not that it caused great bodily harm. We have to give the definition of what child abuse means.” Jonchuck rocks in his chair, his shoulders shifting front and back, staring at the judge. Now they’re discussing the definition of aggravated child abuse, which includes “intentionally struck or touched and caused great bodily harm.” It also mentions a weapon. There was no evidence that Jonchuck struck or touched his daughter inappropriately. And there was no weapon, since he dropped her off the bridge. “He picked her up, dropped her,” Ellis says. “He had to touch her to do that. If I throw you out of a five-story window, … [Read more...] about The Trial of John Jonchuck, Day 19: Testimony ends, closing arguments set for Monday

CARS.COM — The 2018 Lexus LC 500h is the hybrid version of the striking sports coupe, and while the LC 500 relies on a 5.0-liter V-8 for its power, the LC 500h gets something else entirely. With this specific powertrain comes an identity crisis: Is it more of a sports car or more of a hybrid? How well does it satisfy both aspirations? Related: 2018 Lexus LC 500: Our View Most people have moved past thinking of "hybrid" as a dirty word when it relates to performance cars. The Acura NSX and BMW i8 use their hybrid drivetrains to improve both efficiency and performance, and the LC 500h has the same aspirations. It has some work to do to get there. In our review of the LC 500, I said that it's more of a grand touring car than a sports car, and the LC 500h adds more weight (4,435 pounds versus 4,280 pounds) and makes less power. Like the LC 500, the LC 500h shares a lot of its powertrain components with other vehicles already in the Lexus lineup: the RX 450h and the GS … [Read more...] about 2018 Lexus LC 500h: More Sports Car or More Hybrid?
