Motorola Razr with 5G – are we dreaming?

The iconic flip phone’s comeback has been a revered news for a while but is it actually true? Setting aside the release timing, the next Razr is expected to step up to a Snapdragon 765 CPU, a big improvement on the mid-range Snapdragon 710 at the heart of February's Razr release. The so-called "Razr 2" will also sport 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, a beefier 2,845 mAh battery, a 48MP rear camera, and a 20MP front-facing camera, along with Android 10 support out of the box. Importantly, the new phone would come with support for 5G networks, though the specifics of what form that 5G support will take remains murky.

Feature adds features on Google Maps to help SMBs

The coronavirus pandemic has taken a massive toll on businesses and Google is making some changes to Maps to help them out. Google revealed a host of small changes to how it presents business information in Maps. Most notably, it will now indicate if a business is temporarily closed, or if a restaurant is only offering takeout or delivery due to the pandemic. Businesses will also be able to post news updates about their operations on their Maps' profile pages for curious customers. Google is expanding the ability to make reservations directly through a business's profile. So if a salon offers online appointments, you may be able to book one directly through Google Maps.

New update can improve your MacBook’s battery life

In April, in a developer preview version of macOS Catalina 10.15.5, Apple introduced a feature called battery health management. The feature is designed to improve the lifespan of a MacBook's battery, and now, with macOS Catalina 10.15.5 going live for everyone, MacBook users can try it out. Batteries don't like extremes; to conserve your laptop's battery, you should rarely charge your laptop to maximum or discharge it fully. Battery health management operates under the assumption that you don't always need your MacBook's battery to be fully charged. It will monitor your usage patterns and charge the battery accordingly; for example, if you typically keep your MacBook plugged in during the entire work day, this feature may reduce the battery's maximum charge. A similar feature in iOS 13 is called optimised battery charging, so if you're familiar with that one, battery health management is more or less the same thing. And, just like the iOS feature, battery health management can be turned off on MacBooks.
