September 2019 UK Tech Release Roundup - iPhone 11, Galaxy Fold & More


In the build up to Christmas, all the biggest players in the Tech industry are releasing their newest innovations. Although there doesn't seem to be any majorly revolutionary announcements in the works, the newest announced technology and gadgets have far surpassed what we have available at the moment.

As we move into a wireless age, it seems Apple are seeking to make charger cables more optional than compulsory. Wireless charging between the newest iPhone, Airpods and the Apple Watch could mean that keeping your devices charged becomes a lot more simple.
