  • Don’t Be Alarmed By Apple’s New 2FA Text Messages

  • iOS 15.4 Will Let All Apps Use The iPhone 13’s 120Hz Display

    The retail landscape has certainly changed a lot from back in the day. Back then, if you were running a small stall at a farmer’s market or flea market, the only way you could accept payment on the spot would be cash. However, thanks to companies like Square, they created portable credit card readers that could be attached to smartphones, thus allowing retailers to accept credit/debit cards from their customers, but all of that could soon be moot. This is because according to a report from Bloomberg, Apple is working on an iOS update that will allow iPhones to accept …
