Video leak shows Apple's iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max designs side by side
Just a few short months ago, Apple's next-generation iPhone 11 lineup was shaping up to be one of the most boring iPhone updates in recent history. It couldn't be the most boring iPhone update, since there's no way Apple will be able to top the iPhone XS in that department. Thankfully, a few new reports from well-placed sources over the past few weeks have painted a much more compelling picture of the iPhone 11. While the overall design of Apple's upcoming new iPhone lineup will remain largely unchanged, we've seen more and more news of big upgrades lately. Most recently, the world's top Apple insider reported that Apple's iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will both feature triple-lens rear cameras that pack all sorts of new tricks, while the iPhone 11R (or whatever Apple ends up calling it) will sport an upgraded dual-lens camera. On top of all that, Apple has big things planned for iOS 13 and some of the details surrounding the company's upcoming new mobile software update have already leaked.Long story short, 2019 is looking a bit brighter for Apple fans than it was a couple of months ago. iPhone owners who don't plan to upgrade to a new phone will still have a pretty huge software update to look forward to in September (or in June, if they're brave enough to install the early beta versions following WWDC 2019). Meanwhile, people who do upgrade will apparently get an updated design, plenty more power, and a massive camera upgrade that's much-needed, considering how far Apple has fallen behind the lik

Verizon opens Galaxy S10 5G preorders as it announces 20 future 5G markets
The fourth Galaxy S10 phone -- you know, the one with beastly specs that you couldn't order when the Galaxy S10 series went on sale a few weeks ago -- is finally here. Well, it's sort of finally here, because Verizon is only taking Galaxy S10 5G preorders at this time. You'll have to wait a bit longer before you actually receive Samsung's most powerful smartphone ever, but at least you can place your order and have one on launch day. Before you do, make sure that your market has 5G coverage, or will at least get it sometime soon -- Verizon just announced 20 markets where you'll soon find a 5G signal.Verizon said in a press release that the following 20 US cities will get 5G Ultra Wideband service this year, without specifying more precise launch dates: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Washington DC.The carrier also announced that Galaxy S10 5G preorders kick off on Thursday, with the phone launching in stores next month on May 16th. Of note, the phone was released in Korea a few weeks ago, where it experienced several network-related connectivity issues during the first days of usage.The 256GB model will retail for $1,299.99, or $54.16 per month for 24 months. The 512GB Galaxy S10 5G costs $100 more, or $4.17 extra each month. Verizon also announced that new and existing customers can shave off $450 off of the price by tradi
