After watching the latest from WWDC 2020, the iOS 14 hype train is in full swing. Certainly, if you’re an iPhone user, the first question on your mind is, “will I get the latest update?”

Prior to the iOS 14 launch, Apple has always teased sweeping compatibility with upcoming operating systems. Naturally, teases aren’t as specific as we would want them to be. Fortunately, Apple has finally confirmed the compatible devices for iOS 14.

According to Apple, if your phone is compatible with iOS 13, it will automatically receive the iOS 14 update. Listed down, there are the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, both iPhone SE generations, and the 7th-generation iPod touch.

The sweeping compatibility is, of course, important. Compared to other major operating systems, there is no drop-off of support for current-generation devices. If your phone is still up to date now, it will still be up to date until the next iOS version at least.

iOS 14 is expected to roll out sometime later this year. Meanwhile, the beta is already available for developers.

Nokia created a new Nokia 3310 but it’s just cake

Always has been

After years of languishing in the darkness, Nokia has ascended back into the spotlight as a staple of the smartphone industry. That happened five years ago. HMD Global, the current owner of Nokia’s products, has a lot to be thankful for. And what’s a better way to celebrate a milestone anniversary than with a cake? To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Nokia’s new era, the company has partnered with renowned cake sculptor Michelle Wibowo.

The cake is designed after none other than the iconic Nokia 3310. Though it’s the newer version of the classic phone, the cake looks hyper-realistic. It looks as great as the actual phone. However, it was made with chocolate sponge and vanilla buttercream. The casing, on the other hand, is made with a hand-painted sugar shell casing.

Of course, Nokia has since launched a flurry of other phones since then. But the brand is especially indebted to the Nokia 3310 as one of the early devices that catapulted it to the top of the tech world in the early 2000s. The classic Nokia 3310 was launched in September 2000.

Michelle Wibowo is a famous cake sculptor known around the world. She has created works of art like the Hogwarts Castle and lifelike depictions of popular figures like Queen Elizabeth II. The hyper-realistic Nokia 3310 cake certainly echoes the past trend of creating everyday items with cake.

And Apple Watch Series 7

Besides the iconic black variant, the red variant is one of the most popular color options for an iPhone. The now-ubiquitous (PRODUCT)RED version is more than just a sleek option, though. Apple’s partnership with (RED) has always been about raising awareness for HIV and AIDS. Now, 15 years later, Apple wants to continue the fight further with new PRODUCT(RED) products.

This holiday season, Apple is launching red variants of the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 mini. Outside of the iPhone lineup, the company is also introducing a PRODUCT(RED) variant of the Apple Watch Series 7. The wearable will also get six new watch faces with the PRODUCT(RED) theme. It also gets a few red strap options for more customization: Braided Solo Loop, Sport Band, and Sport Loop straps.

From now until the end of the year, Apple is donating a portion of the proceeds from the variants to the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response. According to the initiative, combating COVID-19 will help the Global Fund redirect its efforts to fight AIDS.

Also, from December 6 to the end of the year, Apple is donating US$ 1 to the Global Fund for every purchase made with Apple Pay through Apple.com, the Apple Store app, and actual Apple Stores.
