They are here — Apple announced the iPhone 13 series this week, alongside two (surprise) new iPads and the Apple Watch Series 7. And they are all on pre-order now, except the new Watch. Gadgets 360 reviews editor Jamshed Avari and IDC India research director Navkendar Singh join host Akhil Arora to discuss everything from Apple’s California Streaming event. We talk about what the iPhone 13 prices mean for India, how they will offer a boost for older models (that are also getting price cuts), and why India being in the first wave of launches is important (hello, festive season sales). Read: Is iPhone 13 the best new reason to buy an iPhone 12? We delve into the 2021 iPad 9th-gen refresh (it’s boring but will be the one most buy), and the massive iPad mini update that takes a lot after the redesigned iPad Air. But we wonder who it’s for, beyond the industry use cases that Apple is hoping for.p> Read: New iPad and iPad Mini launched Lastly, we touch upon the disappointing Apple Watch Series 7 announcement, with Apple providing very little info. This is likely because supply chain constraints have delayed its arrival, which also ties into why Series 3 (kill it!) is sticking around.

iPhone 13 leaks, rumours, and everything we know
Orbital Gadgets 360
access_time10 days ago
Will the iPhone 13 be a full-fledged upgrade, or more like an iPhone 12S? Gadgets 360 reviews editor Jamshed Avari and deputy reviews editor Roydon Cerejo join host Akhil Arora to discuss next week’s iPhone 13 launch and Apple event. We talk about the leaks and reports we’ve seen so far, much of which have been focused on the Pro models. They are expected to get iPad Pro-like ProMotion displays that support 120Hz refresh rates. And every new iPhone 13 is expected to have an always-on display. You can expect the phones to be thicker as well, thanks to larger batteries. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are also said to get new camera features, including portrait video (that focuses on the subject and blurs the background) and the ability to record high-quality ProRes video. Meanwhile, the regular iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini might have their cameras arranged diagonally. Read: iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7, AirPods 3 key specifications and features leaked Due to the new (Pro) features and ongoing chip shortages, iPhone 13 prices are expected to rise. Could iPhone 13 start at Rs. 80,000 in India? What matters more here is where the older models will fit in, as Apple always reduces prices when new iPhones are announced. We also speculate when we might get them in our hands (and if they will even launch together). Lastly, we touch upon leaks for the Apple Watch Series 7, expected to have slightly bigger displays, and a flatter design to match the iPhone. And could AirPods 3 be the one more thing?

Drones in India: new rules mean less regulation, but privacy concerns abound
Orbital Gadgets 360
access_time17 days ago
How will India’s new liberalised drone rules impact the industry? And where are they left wanting? Skye Air Mobility co-founder Swapnik Jakkampuddi, Internet Freedom Foundation associate counsel for surveillance and transparency Anushka Jain, and Tech for Wildlife founder-director Shashank Srinivasan join host Akhil Arora to discuss just that. We talk about how the Drone Rules 2021 do away with unnecessary and time-consuming security clearances, and are much easier to parse than the old ones — but it’s worth noting that these are still early days, and there’s a lot they leave out, including basic stuff such as the legality of DJI drones (the most popular in the world) or counter-drone measures (can you shoot down a drone if it flies over your property?). Read: Drone Rules 2021 announced Additionally, the new eased regulations have made misuse of drones much easier, be it on an individual peeping-tom level or via the police who are taking to new technology more and more. There are major questions over privacy, data security, and mass surveillance — none of which are addressed by Drone Rules 2021. And you may face many legal hurdles in taking someone to court over being surveilled by drones. This vacuum isn't just harmful to fundamental rights of humans, but also other species. We delve into the need for more clarity over e-waste disposal, better enforcement for protected areas like national parks, and ensuring that drones do not further expand the divide between oppressed communities and the authorities. We also touch upon the medicine-from-the-sky trials currently being undertaken. Follow Gadgets 360 on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

Gadgets 360 senior reviewers Sheldon Pinto and Aditya Shenoy join host Akhil Arora to talk about the Realme GT 5G and GT Master Edition. We discuss Realme’s counterintuitive approach with the naming and the design. The GT Master Edition is the more afforadble phone, while the plainly named GT 5G is the more expensive one. They have a vegan leather option (sounds premium), but it’s only on the cheapest variant. Read: Realme GT Master Edition first impressions We delve into their performance — the GT 5G has a Snapdragon 888 that calls for compromise elsewhere — the many cameras on offer, and the Realme UI software that emerged out of Oppo’s ColorOS which has now been merged with OnePlus’ OxygenOS. If you know, you know. Speaking of OnePlus, we also touch upon their competitors that includes the Nord 2, as well as the gaming-focused Poco F3 GT. Oh hey, is that where Realme got the idea for “GT”? The new Realme phones don’t have hardware triggers, though they do have better-supported Snapdragon chipsets.

Are the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 still made for enthusiasts — or are they good enough for everyone? Gadgets 360 reviews editor Jamshed Avari and deputy reviews editor Roydon Cerejo join host Akhil Arora to talk about Samsung’s new foldables. We discuss the India pricing of the two new Galaxy Z devices (and the cashback and offers you can avail), and how Samsung has improved on their respective previous iterations (120Hz display and S Pen support among them). Read: Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 launched in India We delve into the downsides of an under-display camera (and the potential upsides), the multiple use cases of their multiple cameras (the Flip 3 is its own tripod), and how Android works on foldables (and what Samsung brings to it with One UI).

Fast & Furious 9 Review / The Suicide Squad Review
Orbital Gadgets 360
access_time1 month ago
A double delight for John Cena fans this week, purely by happenchance, as Orbital dives into two of his latest movies: the DC supervillain get-together The Suicide Squad, and the heist family saga Fast & Furious 9. Gadgets 360 chief sub-editor and comic book fan Shayak Majumder joins host Akhil Arora to talk about The Suicide Squad. We discuss James Gunn’s shock-and-awe tactics and how he makes use of the giant ensemble, led by Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Joel Kinnaman, and Cena. We touch upon Gunn’s mannerisms that contribute to a bonkers over-the-top movie, the multiple Guardians of the Galaxy cameos he stuffs here, and why we enjoyed everything about King Shark. Lastly, we look at where The Suicide Squad lands in the DC Extended Universe canon. Read: The Suicide Squad Review Later, Gadgets 360 senior reviewer Ali Pardiwala and sub-editor Jasmin Jose — both Fast & Furious fans — join Akhil to discuss F9. We delve into the sheer craziness of the film, with returning director Justin Lin putting a meta spin on how these street racers have become invincible superheroes along the way. They seemingly cannot die, and even when they do, they can always be brought back. But Fast & Furious 9 wastes some of its cast (Charlize Theron and Sung Kang) or doesn’t know how to use them (Cena). Lin also loves action gimmicks — he was behind the bank vault chase in Fast Five — and on Fast & Furious 9, he turns to electromagnets. He also sends the Fast crew to space! Ali, Jasmin, and Akhil wrap up by picking their favourite Fast & Furious chapter — there’s no common ground, surprisingly.

Hear how the app uses the power of transparency to motivate more than 14,000 factories (so far) to clean up.
