Cyber Monday is almost over, but we’re sneaking this Lenovo Legion 7i deal out the door at the last minute. If you’re looking for an extremely capable gaming laptop that can even handle VR gaming, then this deal is for you.
Right now, you can get the Lenovo Legion 7i Gen 6 for $1929.99 at Lenovo, down from it’s usual price of $2279.99. You just need to enter the discount code BFDAILYDEALS20 at checkout. That’s a $350 saving on this powerful and stylish gaming laptop that comes with an 11th generation I7 CPU, 16GB RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card.
You also get a 1TB SSD for storing all your games and files on too. On top of that, it’s got a QHD (2560 x 1600) anti-glare display and colorful backlit keyboard.
Another fantastic deal for people looking to get into VR gaming, especially if you’d already snapped up one of the Cyber Monday VR headset deals and now want a super-powered rig to run it from. The Lenovo Legion 7i has a tasty GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card that is brilliant for VR gaming, and should be able to handle AAA games for a few years to come too.
If you’ve grabbed a cheaper, standalone VR headset like the Oculus Quest 2, then you don’t need a laptop to power your setup (though you can still plug it in for a power boost), but for people who bought any of the other best VR headsets out there like the HTC Vive Cosmos Elite or Valve Index then you’ll want something like the Lenovo Legion 7i.
Even with the discount, the Lenovo Legion 7i is a decent investment of cash, but luckily it’s well equipped to function as your everyday laptop too, as well as a gaming machine. The high resolution screen means it’s perfect for watching movies and TV on Netflix or other streaming services, many of which are also on sale for Cyber Monday. At the same time, the powerful specs and large screen mean it’s ideally suited for use as a photo and video editing laptop.
If you’re looking for something a little cheaper to power your VR setup though, you can still grab the Dell G15 Special Edition Gaming Laptop for just over $1500. The graphics card isn’t quite as good as the Lenovo’s but it’s also $400 cheaper.
iPhone 13 doesn't support long-time 'Phone Noise Cancellation' feature – MobileSyrup
A growing number of iPhone 13 users have complained about the disappearance of the ‘Phone Noise Cancellation’ accessibility feature, which reduced ambient noise on phone calls when users help the receiver to their ear.
9to5Mac reported on the missing feature in December. Up till the iPhone 12, users could find and enable/disable the feature in Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual. On the iPhone 13, however, the feature wasn’t listed at all. Initially thought to be a bug, an Apple Support rep has now confirmed that the iPhone 13 models don’t support Phone Noise Cancellation:
“We have an update on this. Phone Noise Cancellation is not available on iPhone 13 models, which is why you do not see this option in Settings.”
The response came from a direct message thread between a 9to5Mac reader and Apple Support on Twitter. The reader told 9to5 that he’d worked with Apple and a senior advisor “for months,” eventually culminating with that message, confirmation that there’s no bug or software issue involved, and directions on how to file feedback about the feature.
It remains unclear why Apple decided to remove the feature. There’s a growing Reddit thread about the problem, but overall I haven’t seen a lot of discussion about it beyond that thread and the 9to5 article. Those who have issued complaints say that the removal of Phone Noise Cancellation has significantly reduced the quality of phone calls.
While I didn’t have an iPhone 13 to check, I do have an iPhone XS running iOS 15.2.1 and it still has Phone Noise Cancellation (as seen in the header photo). For iPhone 13 users, however, the only workaround so far seems to be using Control Center to activate ‘Voice Isolation’ when in a call.
