A new, almost effortless method for copying files from Google Photos to iCloud is being provided by Apple and Google. Over the next week, Google is going to be adding support for iCloud to its data transfer tool, which will allow you to migrate your photo collection straight to Apple's service without having to download anything. This was noticed by 9to5Mac. It is a supplement to Apple's 2021 iCloud-to-Google-Photos service and is a part of a larger data portability plan backed by a few major internet companies.

There is no need to download anything because images and videos are delivered immediately to iCloud, making the service very simple to use. You can designate which albums you want transferred, or you can send your entire library at once. Common picture and video formats are included in the list of file types that you can transmit on Google's support page. Then, for some reason,.webp. When you start a transfer, a copy of every file is sent to your iCloud account; therefore, until you remove the originals manually, they will stay in Google Photos.

Google is the most recent business to provide a service of this kind; in 2019, Meta published a tool as part of the Data Transfer Project that allows you to move your Facebook images to other platforms. Having your pictures with you makes it simpler to transition between phone ecosystems and preserve memories, should you choose to do so. Large IT businesses collaborating with one another? Unprecedented! It is, you know, morally proper to allow users to move their data between platforms, and regulators actually like to see this kind of behavior.

How Switching from Google Photos to iCloud Just Got Easier


On July 8, Nothing planned to unveil the first smartphone from its low-cost CMF subbrand. However, in a series of continuous teases, it has disclosed the CMF Phone 1's distinctive customizability, which includes an easily removable rear panel and a dial for attaching accessories. This variant will not support the light-up glyphs found on the Nothing Phone 1 and Phone 2, but a brief video showcasing a revolving dial on the rear appears to be modeled after the aluminum alloy dial on the CMF Buds, which permits a lanyard to be fastened to the earbuds' charging case.

The teaser released today appears to suggest that the phone's dial will, at the very least, work similarly to the CMF Buds' dial in order to accept accessories. The dial can be unscrewed and replaced with optional attachments, such as a folding kickstand and lanyard mount. Will it have more features? While there haven't been any cryptic clues, the displayed dial is similar to the CMF Neckband Pro headphones' smart dial, which controls playback, volume, and active noise cancellation.

Although it's unclear if other manufacturers are producing replacement rear panels, a closer look suggests that the device might support panels that add a wallet to hold credit and ID cards or a larger battery, a la Mophie Juice Pack or the Motorola phones that supported "Moto Mods" a few years ago. It's also unclear whether taking off the back panel will make it simpler to reach the CMF Phone 1's internal components, including the battery, but the feature might be more about personalizing looks and features than making repairs easier.

YouTube revealed in a community post on Thursday that it is developing new plans for its YouTube Premium subscriptions. A YouTube staff member using under the handle Hazel wrote, "We're committed to bringing members more plan options by expanding our existing offers to more regions, while also introducing new plans and exploring ways for you to share your benefits with friends in the future."

There are just a few YouTube Premium plans available right now: Student for $7.99 per month, Family for $22.99 per month, and Individual for $13.99 per month (or $139.99 for a 12-month subscription). Benefits from subscribing include access to the YouTube Music library without advertisements, ad-free viewing of videos, and the option to download videos for offline viewing. YouTube did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and Thursday's post did not describe what any of the new plans may look like or what benefits you might be able to share.

Both the community article and the independent blog post describe the additional capabilities that YouTube is rolling out for Premium users. The recently released "jump ahead" feature driven by AI will make its way to iOS "in the next few weeks." Picture-in-picture viewing of YouTube Shorts on Android will be possible for Premium members (a functionality that is already available on TikTok).

A few experiments will also be available to premium subscribers to choose from, such as batch downloading of Shorts to your phone for offline viewing, a conversational AI assistant (which the company is reintroducing after a previous test), and a redesign of the watch page on desktop.

 Google announced on Thursday that it is expanding Google Translate's support to 110 additional languages. Google Translate was previously available in 133 languages, so this expansion—which the firm claims is its largest ever—represents a substantial improvement. 

Translate was assisted in learning these new languages by Google's PaLM 2 AI language model. According to a blog post by Google's Isaac Caswell, it was particularly effective at learning languages that were connected to one another, such as those "close to Hindi, like Awadhi and Marwadi, and French creoles like Seychellois Creole and Mauritian Creole."

Cantonese, which "has long been one of the most requested languages for Google Translate," is included in the list of newly supported languages in Translate, according to Caswell. Cantonese and Mandarin frequently overlap in writing, thus finding data and training models can be challenging.

 Additionally, according to Caswell, "roughly a quarter of the new languages come from Africa." According to Caswell, "several" of the new languages are spoken by hundreds of millions of people, but the majority are spoken by at least one million people, The Verge reports in an interview.

Backpackers will soon have access to SpaceX's Starlink internet-from-space service, which is now accessible for boats, aircraft, vanlifers, Amazonian villages, and rural houses in more than 75 nations. The Wi-Fi router is integrated directly into the dish of the new, thin, DC-powered Starlink Mini, which is roughly the size of a thick laptop. Furthermore, it can give speeds greater than 100Mbps while consuming less power than conventional Starlink terminals.

The Mini kit uses an average of only 20–40 W, which is significantly less than the 33–62 W we recorded with a Standard Actuated dish and separate AC-powered Wi-Fi router just two years ago. This implies that you can run the Mini dish for two to three hours on a smaller 10,000mAh (40Wh) portable battery you undoubtedly already have lying around, or for somewhat longer if you use something like an Anker Prime 27,650mAh (99.54Wh) power bank. A USB-C PD power source with a minimum rating of 100W (20V/5A) is necessary.

The Mini dish weighs only 2.43 pounds (1.1 kg) or 3.37 pounds (1.53 kg) when combined with the 49.2 foot (15 m) DC power line and kickstand. It measures 11.75 x 10.2 x 1.45 inches (298.5 x 259 x 38.5 mm). Because of its IP67 designation, it is resistant to dust, rain, and brief submersion in water.

For the time being at least, Starlink Mini is an add-on to Residential plans in the US. The Mini kit costs $599, which is $100 more expensive than the normal dish. To add the Mini Roam service to current $120 Residential subscriptions, an additional $30 per month will be charged. According to early-access invitations sent to certain departing US Starlink customers, that provides Starlink Mini users with up to 50GB of mobile data each month, with the option to purchase additional for $1 per GB.

Despite being new to the US, Starlink Mini is already available in Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Panama, where it can be purchased with Mini Service or Mobile - Regional Service plans; in these countries, there are no data or speed caps associated with Mini, and use while in motion or over the ocean is prohibited. SpaceX claims that Mini will eventually be available in more markets.

According to the Starlink support page, "Our goal is to reduce the price of Starlink, especially for those around the world where connectivity has been unaffordable or completely unavailable." "We are offering a limited number of Starlink Mini Kits to start at a higher price point in regions with high usage, like the US, where Starlink Mini places additional demand on the satellite network." Starlink Mini, when used independently, has the potential to be a game-changer for anyone looking for a low-cost, shareable internet service that consumes little DC battery power. This might be a group of soldiers attempting to repel an assault, a family depending on a makeshift solar generator for electricity, or just bikepackers and overlanders choosing the less-traveled route.

 Intel says it doesn't currently have a final patch for its 13th and 14th Gen Intel Core i9 "Raptor Lake" and "Raptor Lake S" chips, despite what you may have seen earlier today. For months, Intel's top-tier desktop gaming processors have had an odd tendency to periodically cause games to crash.

According to a statement from Intel spokesperson Thomas Hannaford, "In contrast to recent media reports, Intel has not confirmed root cause and is continuing, with its partners, to investigate user reports regarding instability issues on unlocked Intel Core 13th and 14th generation (K/KF/KS) desktop processors." It goes on: "While looking into the instability concerns, Intel found an eTVB bug that is fixed by the microcode change mentioned in news reports. Although it might be a contributing factor, this problem is not the main source of instability.

Leaked internal Intel documents that Igor's Lab was able to obtain earlier today are mentioned in Intel's official statement, which also partially confirms them. According to those documents, Intel's processors have been inadvertently overclocking their own cores through a function known as Enhanced Thermal Velocity Boost (eTVB), even though they ought to have recognized that doing so would be dangerous given their operating temperatures. 

The leaked document said, "Root cause is an incorrect value in a microcode algorithm associated with the eTVB feature."  Although Intel acknowledges that eTVB may have contributed to the issue, it does not appear to be the "root cause" of the whole problem.

The Nighthawk RS300 and the Orbi 770 are the two new Wi-Fi 7 routers that Netgear has unveiled today. Both routers will have 2.5Gbps ports and Wi-Fi 7 features, like 320Mhz channels that can potentially double wireless speed for gear that supports them, but at a reduced cost this time.

Four 2.5Gbps ports are available on the Orbi 770 router: three are used to provide internet access to any wired devices, and one is used to connect to your modem. Each satellite mesh node has two 2.5Gbps connections as well, allowing you to wire additional devices directly to the main node or connect other devices to those. In contrast, the Orbi 970, its more costly predecessor, offers three 2.5 Gbps connections and two 10 Gbps ports. Additionally, according to Netgear, the Orbi 970 has up to 27Gbps of overall bandwidth, as opposed to the Orbi 770's 11Gbps, because it has an additional wireless band. However, this won't improve performance on any one device.

You'll need a phone, laptop, or other device with Wi-Fi 7 capability linked to the 6GHz band in order to take advantage of the 320MHz channels. Broader 240MHz spectrum is also available in the 5GHz band, but again, a Wi-Fi 7 device is required to utilize it. The Orbi 770 costs $999.99 for a three-pack, which is more affordable than Netgear's outrageous $1,699.99 for the Orbi 970, despite being more expensive overall.

Like the majority of mesh Wi-Fi 7 routers, these routers' main advantage is Multi-Link Operation (MLO), a new feature of the Wi-Fi 7 standard that enables simultaneous connections on two bands for quicker, more reliable connections. Although the Orbi and its satellites can connect to each other in this fashion, none of your pre-Wi-Fi 7 devices can directly benefit from MLO. As a result, you should have reduced band congestion in your mesh network, and in the event that one band fails, you will still have the other one.

Similar in features to the main Orbi router, but with a few notable variances, is the Nighthawk RS300, another tri-band router. The 5GHz band has a 160MHz channel bandwidth restriction, while the 6GHz band can still handle 320MHz channels. (That's still the fastest any non-Wi-Fi 7 device is likely to get, though.)

Three more ethernet connections (two 2.5Gbps and one gigabit) are located on the back for providing wired internet to your devices in addition to one 2.5Gbps port for connecting to your modem. In case you want to attach something to it, such a storage drive, it also features a USB 3.0 port. According to Netgear, it can cover up to 2,500 square feet, though its actual coverage will always depend on your home's layout and contents. It can also handle up to 100 devices. The Nighthawk RS300 costs $329.99, while the Orbi 770 is priced at $999.99 for a three-pack and $699.99 for a two-pack. According to the firm, they are currently available for preorder on Netgear's website and will soon be available at additional retailers.

 Anker Anker has announced that a manufacturing flaw might potentially cause a fire, leading to the recall of their 321 Power Bank (PowerCore 5K, model number A1112). With one USB-C port and one USB-A port, the 321 is a little power bank. Anker is recalling all of the products even though it claims that "only a small number" manufactured after March 2023 are impacted.

To find out if you have this model, look for "Anker 321 Power Bank (PowerCore 5K, Black), Model: A1112" in the white writing printed on the bottom. Anker advises you to cease using it right away if you do. To stake your claim for a replacement 533 Power Bank that the firm is offering affected owners, fill out this form with your serial number included. Prior to going there, try to locate your proof of purchase, as it is said that this will expedite the process.

Just a friendly reminder: never discard your batteries! Not only is e-waste a major issue, but throwing out batteries can start fires. Anker provides a number of links so that you can dispose of them responsibly in different nations. (Those in the US want to dispose of theirs can visit Call2Recycle or the website of the Environmental Protection Agency.)

There are more recalls that Anker is currently running. The 535 Power Bank was also recalled by the firm last year after it was determined that it was most likely the cause of a house fire in Maryland.

According to Netflix, second- and third-generation Apple TVs—which were released more than ten years ago—will no longer support the streaming service. In an email to clients, the business stated that the change is intended to "maintain the best possible Netflix experience." 

After July 31st, the shift is anticipated, according to reports from MacRumors and AppleInsider. The announcement was also posted on Netflix's support page. Apple already deems the first three generations of Apple TVs to be "obsolete," terminating hardware support seven years after a product is no longer sold.

In 2019, Netflix discontinued supporting older gadgets, such as outdated Vizio and Samsung smart TVs and original Roku boxes. That occurred as a result of Netflix moving from Microsoft's PlayReady DRM to Windows Media DRM. Netflix does not provide a reason for their decision to stop supporting Apple TV models from the second and third generations at this time. However, because they are so old, neither generation has access to Apple's App Store. 

The corporation claimed to have made the call for security concerns in an email to The Verge. "To maintain our security commitment to our members, Netflix occasionally retires support for older devices," Kumiko Hidaka, head of Netflix communications, stated in an email.
