UPDATE: Giveaway winners will be picked on April 15, 2019.

Like most tech reviewers, we have a love-hate relationship with Apple. Love their products. Hate their prices.

Luckily, bluetooth technology has advanced to the level such that competitors can sell True Wireless earbuds that are as good or in some ways BETTER than AirPods.

The We Know Products staff recently got to try out the new TaoTronics TT-BH053 bluetooth headphones (WATCH the video below to find out how you can, too). These headphones solve the “not having AirPods” problem without making you buy AirPods. First thing’s first, unlike AirPods, they actually fit in your ear: The BH053 come with three different sized silicone earbud tips, so you are sure to find the right one for you. As you can see in the video review, we tested them out, and the BH053 earbuds did not fall out while running. How many AirPod owners can say the same thing?

The TaoTronics BH053 offer an industry-leading 40 hours of playtime with use of the very small and very portable charging case that fits in your pocket for easy storage. Watch the video for an in-depth unboxing and review and for a chance to win the We Know Products giveaway. (Can’t wait? Buy the TaoTronics BH053 on Amazon now for just $45.)

How AirPods Have Gotten Me Through Quarantine

Avatar

Quarantine has been difficult for people from all walks of life to be sure. But it has posed a particular set of challenges for families like mine, where all of a sudden five people are expected to get work done without killing one another.

All things considered, we have survived reasonably well. I’m not sure I would still be of that opinion had I not purchase a pair of Apple AirPod Pros mere months before the lockdown began. The opposite of a trend-setter, I was skeptical when AirPods appeared on the scene and became the “must-have” accessory for so-called smart set. Why did I need my earbuds to be wireless? Why do I need to talk to people without holding my phone? After all, I have not one but two working hands. Also, the first generation of AirPods were designed like Apple’s original earbuds: in other words, seemingly designed to fall out of your ear. Who would pay hundreds of dollars for that?

I became slightly more tempted when Apple came out with the AirPod Pro model, complete with silicone tips so they actually stay in. (Imagine that!) I finally bit the bullet when I found myself in possession of $200 worth of Best Buy gift cards after Christmas. I expected to be underwhelmed.

That did not happen. Instead I became overwhelmed, turning into one of the people I hate: the AirPods guy. I started wearing them everywhere, adding a soundtrack to my life. While I fell in love with the convenience and sound quality they offered, I’m sure the standoffishness it promoted in me made the purchase a net negative.

Quarantine changed all that. I was visiting my family when the lockdown started and have simply never left. The AirPods have helped me survive. Without them, I have no idea how I’d be able to take Zoom calls or even zone out the house’s background noise to get work done. (The active noise cancellation is quite good). The AirPods have also made me rather enjoy a daily constitutional, as I listen to an audiobook and relish the change to get outside and walk around the block. Turns out that AirPods have been a crucial element to surviving quarantine, akin to Netflix or a healthy stack of unread books. I highly recommend these little guys to anyone struggling to survive these difficult times.

What Do We Know About The iPhone 12?

In the world of smartphones, the big news today is that the iPhone 12 likely will not come with an accompanying pair of EarPods, according to a report by 9to5Mac. With that in mind, this is a great time to take a look at what we do know about Apple’s upcoming model.

Lew from Unbox Therapy has a great analysis of the rumors swirling around the iPhone 12 (watch the entire video below). In his video, Lew notes that the form factor of the iPhone 12 is something of a throwback, abandoning the curvature of recent models for a boxier feel. This makes sense given that that is also the shape of the iPhone SE, Apple’s latest release. One of the biggest criticisms of the iPhone SE is the screen to body ratio, a problem that the iPhone 12 addresses with a screen that covers almost the entire phone. Unlike the iPhone SE, the iPhone 12 has the modern camera technology Apple debuted in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

When trying to visualize the iPhone 12, Lew offers a useful heuristic: “If you were able to shrink an iPad Pro to a phone format…you would be holding on to an iPhone 12.” Though the box-shaped design may sacrifice some comfort in the hand, it offers a more minimalist design and more confidence in your grip.

Lew is known to be of two minds when it comes to Apple, at different times vilifying its lack of creativity and finding value in its unity. That certainly renders his closing comments of note: He suggests that at a $649 price point, this may be the model that finally brings iPhone holdouts into the fold.

Will the world be introduced to a new iPad Pro this March? It sure looks like it, assuming the novel coronavirus has not thrown a wrench into Apple’s production schedules.

Rumors have started to swirl on the features set to be part of the updated 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pros. One of the surest ways to predict new features is to look at the accessory products already being released to market.

As MacRumors reveals in the video below, new iPad cases are coming with larger cutouts for the cameras:

Will the new iPad actually have the triple lenses we’ve all become accustomed to from the latest iPhones? Do people actually take photographs with their iPads? These are questions we will have to wait to find out.
