FaceTime got a lot of attention this week, thanks to the new features that are part of iOS 15 and macOS Monterey, which includes screen sharing with friends, live Portrait Mode, better noise cancellation, and even a web version. I was able to try FaceTime on the web for the first time with my 9to5Mac colleague José Adorno, so read on for a first look at how it works on the web.

Review: Linedock delivers a tailored MacBook Pro companion with built-in battery and 100W charging

After being in the making for quite some time, Linedock is finally shipping. We first got a look at the new accessory at CES 2020, where I was impressed by the prototype they showed off. Now, a year and a half later, the USB-C dock arrives with plenty of notable features to match its unique design. Today, we’re taking a closer look to see how it all stacks up. Head below for a closer look and first impressions with the new Linedock for 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Following a Bloomberg report detailing the upcoming iPad roadmap, Jon Prosser has shared renders based on sources about the design of the upcoming iPad mini.

Prosser says that the sixth-generation iPad mini features almost the same chassis dimensions as the fifth-generation iPad mini.
