Let’s talk aesthetic Home screens, Apple Watches, iPhone 12, and more

It’s all about being ”aesethetic AF” these days, whether on your iPhone, or maybe a mechanical keyboard.

After taking the last few weeks off, I must say, it’s good to be back. And let me tell you — it was nice to be able to watch an Apple event like the rest of you, while my colleagues dominated with the Apple September event coverage! I haven’t actually watched an Apple event like everyone else in like, ever, so it was a nice change. But I’m totally ready for the iPhone 12 event next month, that I can tell you.

So while I was gone, Apple has released the new Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE. Our own Luke Filipowicz has reviewed the Apple Watch SE, and I highly recommend giving it a look. The Apple Watch SE starts at only $279 and it offers an incredible amount of value for first-time Watch owners, or those who are upgrading from an older Apple Watch (Series 0, 1, 2, and 3 primarily).

But if you want the latest and greatest, then the Apple Watch Series 6 is a great op…

The ban is set to take place today.
TikTok is still fighting for an emergency injunction.

Today, Sunday, Sept. 27, the Trump Administration ban is set to go into effect, which would require Google and Apple to remove TikTok from the Google Play Store and App Store respectively. U.S. residents that already have the app on their device would continue to be able to use it, for now.

Back the world’s smallest 100W and 200W GaN USB-C charger on Kickstarter

An incredibly compact GaN charger that works with a wide range of devices.

On August 11, 2020, Chargeasap launched a Kickstarter page for their line of GaN chargers, which includes the Omega 4-in-1 GaN USB-C Charger. This device is boasted as being the world’s smallest 200W GaN charger to date. If you haven’t heard about GaN chargers yet, don’t worry. They’re relatively new tech that haven’t become mainsteam just yet.

You see, traditional chargers are made out of sillicon, but GaN chargers are made using gallium nitride, which don’t require as many components and allows them to be smaller. So why haven’t they become the standard? That’s mostly because it takes money for manufacturers to switch over to new processing proceedures. But it’s possible these will become the chargers of the future.

We got our hands on a Omega 4-in-1 GaN USB-C Charger to see just how well it actually works. It is indeed incredibly compact considering that it holds four different ports and it definitely ha…
