Satechi’s USB-C Magnetic Charging Dock for Apple Watch

Satechi has launched this pretty cool charging dock for the Apple Watch that can be used without a cord. It has a USB-C port that is attached directly to the dock, allowing you to plug it directly into your iPad Pro or Mac devices and rest your Apple Watch right onto it.

I’m not sure if I’d use it attached to the iPad Pro like that, but on the Mac, hell yes! Long cords are so unnecessary and need to die.

Devanagari Digits — My Favorite Watch Face on Apple Watch in watchOS 6

The California watch face on watchOS 6 with Devanagari numerals

I updated my Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) to watchOS 6 a couple of days ago and while it’s nice to have features like the ECG app in India or the new independent apps, by far my favorite thing in watchOS 6 is the new California watch face on watchOS 6 with Devanagari numerals. I have it set to show the StepsApp complication, and I love how minimal the whole thing looks.

How I wish I could display the day and date in Devanagari too.

Apple Updates its iPod touch with a Faster Processor and More Storage

Apple iPod touch 2019 Lineup

The iPod touch isn’t dead!

Just when you thought that the iPod touch was dead and forgotten, Apple swoops in with a surprising update to the little music player.

The 2019 iPod touch now features an A10 processor (the previous one had A8) and goes up to 256 GB of storage (up from 128). That’s it! That’s all there is to add to the “What’s New” section if one was to create it for the iPod touch 2019.

It still features a 4″ display with big ugly bezels on the front, it still boasts a boring 8MP camera from the yesteryears, and is even available in the same set of vibrant colors as it has always been. The A10 processor is as old as the iPhone 7 series, but you do get the added benefit of Group FaceTime and ARKit support now.

I’m actually quite surprised Apple chose to update the little guy at all, but from what I’ve read so far, this makes for the perfect entry-level iOS device for kids and retail, especially considering the upcoming launch of Apple Arcade at the end of this year.

iPod touch 2019 India Pricing

The iPod touch 2019 pricing in India is as follows:

  • 32 GB Model – ₹18,900/-
  • 128 GB Model – ₹28,900/-
  • 256 GB Model – ₹38,900/-

I’m not sure this makes for a great “entry-level iOS device for kids” in India though.
