SanDisk’s new iXpand Lightning to USB drive introduces a new design, faster USB 3.0, and a brand new app, making it one of the most attractive offerings as far as thumb drives for your iPhone or iPad go. I’ve been testing it out to see if it’s worth a recommendation over the many competitors.

Apple sent out an email blast this week marketing the Apple Watch as a Mother’s Day gift recommendation:

Help her do it all and look great, too. Whether she’s working or playing, Apple Watch is the perfect Mother’s Day gift to help her stay connected and active throughout the day.

Safari’s update today includes changes in the way it works with JavaScript, CSS, web APIs, Web Inspector, rendering, security, networking and accessibility. iOS 9.3.2’s latest developer and public betas haven’t seen any major changes as it appears that this release is turning out to be more of a small bug fix release. Simultaneous use of Low Power Mode and Night Shift has been reactivated as of iOS 9.3.2 beta 2.

Information from any sources is extremely limited at this point, so we’ll withhold speculation until further confirmed reporting is released.
