The holidays are here. As a result, Apple has opened its annual holiday gift guide. The special online store is focused on "gifts that inspire and spark creativity" for loved ones, with free personalized engraving available only at Apple. This year's tagline is "Make someone's holiday", with the iPhone 11, AirPods Pro, and Apple Watch front and center in colorful snowflake and ornament patterns.
Minecraft Earth has launched its early access version to the App Store in the US and other countries. The title follows the tremendous success of augmented reality (AR) game Pokémon Go on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. With Minecraft Earth, fans of the game can build structures overlaying the real world using their mobile device's camera and display.
Apple quietly published a press release announcing the long-rumored AirPods Pro wireless earphones. Not only are the upgraded AirPods Pro official, they are launching on Wednesday, October 30th. Apple detailed the design and features of the AirPods Pro, as well as their cost. The new design offers "truly immersive sound" along with Active Noise Cancellation and silicone ear tips for optimized fit.

That being said, screen protectors are another option that can be used in conjunction with a case or by themselves.
iOS 13 has arrived. Apple's latest mobile operating system is packed with performance optimizations and enhancements. Anyone with an iPhone 6s and later can install iOS 13 from Settings to start using new features. Here are some highlights of iOS 13.
