could face heightened antitrust scrutiny in the U.S. as the Department of Justice and state attorneys general are looking at an investigation that would focus on the company’s App Store, according to a Politico report. European regulators also have investigations underway that look into Apple’s App Store and Apple Pay practices. Apple takes a cut of revenue when users make in-app purchases of digital services through third-party apps, which some developers have criticized as anticompetitive and arbitrary. The European investigation of Apple Pay will examine Apple’s control over the NFC reader on iPhones, which enables contactless payments. The company has restricted the way third parties can tap into this technology. Apple shares are off 0.6% in premarket trading Wednesday. The stock has gained 48% over the past three months as the Dow Jones Industrial Average
has risen 26%.
These are Samsung's Galaxy Buds Live wireless earbuds – MobileSyrup
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live has appeared in all its glory.
These new images are courtesy of Evan Blass, who has been remarkably consistent for several years. These new earbuds are a follow-up to Samsung’s current Galaxy Buds+ model but will come with a unique design in the shape of a kidney bean.
The wireless earbuds are rumoured to feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), have two speakers, multiple microphones, and will come with what seems to be a smaller charging case and resembles Apple’s AirPod case.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live is expected to be officially announced alongside the Note20 devices on August 5th.

Leaker suggests iPhone 12 Pro models will have 6GB of RAM – 9to5Mac
Apple is expected to introduce four new iPhone models later this year, with two models being part of the iPhone 12 lineup and the other two of the iPhone 12 Pro lineup. As we continue to learn more about the next generation iPhone, leaker @L0vetodream shared a hint today about the internal specs of these devices.
Apple is rumored to adopt the A14 chip built with a new 5 nanometer process for this year’s iPhones, but details on the hardware are still unclear. But according to @L0vetodream, the new System On a Chip (SoC) will include RAM upgrades for at least two of the 2020 iPhone models.
In a mysterious tweet, the leaker suggests that the Pro lineup will feature 6GB RAM, while the regular lineup will remain with 4GB RAM. The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and, iPhone 11 Pro Max features the A13 chip with 4GB RAM.
Rumors claims that Apple will launch the regular iPhone 12 in two sizes this year, with 5.4 and 6.1 inches, while the iPhone 12 Pro will be offered in 6.1 and 6.7 inches.
It’s worth mentioning that @L0vetodream correctly predicted several Apple announcements this year, from the new iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard to the redesigned macOS Big Sur.

Nintendo Treehouse Live Airs Friday With Reveal Of New WayForward Game – Nintendo Life
Nintendo has revealed that it will be broadcasting a Treehouse Live event on Friday 10th July (that’s today in the UK, but tomorrow if you’re in the United States) which will include gameplay footage of Paper Mario: The Origami King.
The event will also give us the first reveal of “a title in a franchise new to developer WayForward,” which is perhaps a more exciting prospect for many people than the Paper Mario footage. Before you get too excited, though, Nintendo has confirmed that the game is a third-party property, and not a Nintendo franchise.
Treehouse Live July 2020 kicks off at 10am PT.
