    The new 27-inch iMac (2020) is here — 10-core Comet Lake with Radeon Pro 5700XT and T2 — and I’ve spent the last 24-hours hammering on it.

    iPhone 12 — The 5G Mess!

    Rumor has it the upcoming iPhone 12 will finally — markdown double asterisk finally — have 5G radios. Sub 6, maybe even Sub 9 on the mini and regular 12, and mmWave on the Pro and Max. That’s low-band and mid-band, or FR 1, and high-band, or FR 2.
