Before we get to the laptop, this year’s iPhones will be available in 6.5-inch, 5.8-inch, and 6.1-inch screen sizes, but all retain Lightning connectivity rather than opt for USB-C, along with frosted glass casing, improved Face ID with a higher power flood illuminator, larger batteries, as well as a triple camera design. What many are looking forward to is the new MacBook Pro that boasts a screen size between 16-inches and 16.5-inches with an all-new design. Read more for a concept video and additional information.

Moshi Umbra Laptop Privacy Screen
Sure, you can have strong passwords and rock solid encryption technologies to keep private work data safe, but those tools can’t stop prying eyes from simply looking over your shoulder, or even capturing a photo of what’s on your screen. It’s officially called visual hacking, and thankfully, there’s an easy fix – a simple privacy filters. It takes just a few seconds for someone to snag confidential information from a computer screen, which could potentially be used for malicious intent. However, not all of them work the same, with many reducing visibility when applied, that is, unless…you’re talking about Moshi’s Umbra. Once adhered to your MacBook Air / MacBook Pro / Pixelbook / Surface Pro display, it severely restricts the viewing angle, without reducing visbility. That’s right, anyone who tries to sneak a peek from the sides or top will just see a blackened screen. Best of all, the Umbra is fully washable, and can be reapplied repeatedly, 100% bubble-free each time. Product page. Read more for our full review.
