iOS 14 will maintain a huge advantage over Android

The iOS 14 update will work on all the iPhones that can run iOS 13, a new leak claims. If the iOS 14 rumor is accurate, the 2015 iPhone 6s will be the oldest iPhones to run Apple’s latest operating system. Providing five years of software support to smartphones is a crucial iOS feature that Google can’t even dream of matching. Apple’s new software innovations should be unveiled in a few weeks, during an online-only WWDC 2020 keynote presentation. That’s assuming the protests against police brutality won’t f[..]

Coronavirus cases in Israel increased once public transportation restrictions were loosened

The number of coronavirus cases in Israel increased in the wake of the country easing restrictions on public transportation. Buses and trains tend to pack in riders closely together and can be a catalyst for widespread exposure. The coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing, but the virus has seemingly started to subside in many areas across the country.

The coronavirus' US toll is continuing to get worse, even as everyone's attention has moved on to more acute tragedy that's dominating attention in the country right now. More than 1.8 million people have been infected with the coronavirus to-date in the US, and there have been more than 105,000 reported deaths here.

Chris Evans says he’s done with Captain America

The main Avengers timeline will continue after Endgame without three important heroes: Black Widow, Iron Man, and the original Captain America. There have been some rumors about Iron Man returning to the MCU, and fans have wondered whether Chris Evans will ever reprise his role as Captain America.

NASA spots piping hot batch of new sunspots, hinting at increased solar activity

New sunspots and solar flares on the Sun were spotted by NASA and could be an indication that we're entering a period of increased solar activity. The solar minimum, a period of low activity on the Sun, may be ending, but we won't know for sure for a few more months. Solar flares and coronal mass ejections can impact communications on Earth and even damage satellites. Our Sun is incredibly important to our survival. We'd like to make sure it's nice and warm and happy at all times, but our nearest star goes [..]

New study shows remdesivir works in coronavirus therapy, but it might not be enough

Data from a new coronavirus drug trial shows that a 5-day course of remdesivir therapy is more effective than standard care, and works just as well as a 10-day course. The results only apply to a specific set of COVID-19 patients, namely people who developed a moderate case, which included pneumonia without reduced oxygen levels. The new Phase 3 SIMPLE remdesivir study indirectly suggests the drug won’t work in severe cases, and it will not affect COVID-19 mortality rates. The results are in line with a pre[..]

SpaceX Crew Dragon hit a huge milestone, but it’s not done yet

SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule has passed several milestones over the past few days, but it still has to complete a safe return to Earth before NASA can certify it.

When SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule traveled to space atop a Falcon 9 rocket on Saturday,[..]

If there are more coronavirus stimulus checks, they may go to the neediest

There's still plenty of speculation about when a new round of coronavirus stimulus checks might be approved and distributed, never mind that plenty of taxpayers are still waiting on their first check to arrive. A number of ideas have been floated as to how to implement a new round, but some Senate Democrats are warming to one idea, in particular. The idea is to target any new coronavirus stimulus checks at people who need them the most, unlike the much broader first round of checks. It's been overshadowed i[..]

Italy has seen an improvement in coronavirus statistics over the past few weeks, as the curve has been flattened significantly.

Companies working on brand new coronavirus drugs meant to treat COVID-19 and provide limited immunity are approaching human trials.

Apple just released the first iOS 13.5.5 beta for the iPhone

Apple just released its first iOS 13.5.5 beta and iPadOS 13.5.5 developer beta on Monday. The release came shortly after the public releases of iOS 13.5.1 and iPadOS 13.5.1, which appear to have been security fixes to kill the new iOS jailbreak tool.

It looks like we know when the first iPhone 12 model will enter production

Apple will reportedly begin production of the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models as early as July, ahead of the other two models that are expected to launch this fall. Apple's staggered production schedule is reportedly due to touch modules that need to be outsourced for the 6.1-inch models, but not for the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models. The report claims that the iPhone 12 launch "is likely to be in October." When the novel coronavirus pandemic began earlier this year, and virtually every major developer conference,[..]
