Apple fans… get ready to get your hands on your new iPhone

A new report claims a brilliant new feature could be coming to the iPhone 14 Pro.

In fact, Apple could be working on a new iPhone colour to tempt you this year too.

The tech giant is expected to launch the iPhone 14 later this year with four new models to choose from.

Apple’s next big iPhone software release, iOS 16, will be unveiled at Apple’s upcoming special event soon too.

A new colour is expected to be added for the iPhone Pro models.. keep your eyes peeled for Purple.

That’s according to a gadget expert and apple insider, who say a purple option will join silver, graphite and gold.

Purple is a less safe colour – it’s bold, and might be difficult to match a case with.

More details as we have them, but not long until it’s all revealed.

Amazon limits sale of morning-after pills following Roe v. Wade abortion decision

Amazon has limited sales of morning-after pills as demand spikes following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning abortion rights

There’s now a limit of three Plan-B units per week on emergency contraceptive pills sold through its website.

They aren’t the first to limit pills, many U.S retailers are capping purchases of emergency contraceptive pills.

Demand has surged following last week’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and ending the constitutional right to have an abortion.

Social media is flooding with calls to stock up on Plan B in anticipation of possible restrictions on contraceptive pills.

Amazon is one of several retailers to put curbs on morning after pills

A review of emergency contraceptive pills sold on Amazon showed varying quantity limits. 

A listing for Plan B, a popular brand of the drug Levonorgestrel, showed purchases were capped at three products per shopper.

Meanwhile, one listing for a generic version of the drug, called My Choice, allowed users to purchase up to 30 units.

Walmart said many of the chain’s products have online purchase limits that can change “during times of fluctuating demand.”

Walgreens said purchases of emergency contraceptive pills were not being limited.

Emergency contraceptive pills, often referred to as “morning after pills” and sold under the Plan B brand, can be purchased over-the-counter and without an ID or prescription.

A Chinese spacecraft has captured images of Mars circling around the planet over 13 hundred times

The crewless shuttle reached the Red Planet early last year… deploying a robotic rover.

Some of the photos captured the south pole… a first for China.

The area is known for its large water reserve… hidden under the south pole ice, which was detected by the European Space Agency’s orbiting probe.

Water is a key element in determining whether a planet has the potential for life.

Other images include a 4,000 kilometre long canyon and impact craters in the north of Mars.

No more AirBNB parties. Ever

AirBNB has announced an end to house parties forever, in a move that will impact operations around the world

Airbnb announced a global ban on parties following a temporary restriction it put on parties two years ago at the start of the pandemic.

The company is permanently banning “disruptive parties and events,” which include open-invite gatherings.

“Party houses,” will stay banned as well. That will put an end to people booking a house for a big party for just one night.

Airbnb has struggled with party houses, given the noise caused often leads to a visit by the police.

Airbnb placed a ban on party houses in 2019 after five people were killed in a shooting at one of its bookings.

That was followed by a global ban on party houses just as the pandemic hit.

Airbnb says it has seen a 44% year-over-year drop in the rate of party reports since introducing the ban.

“The temporary ban has proved effective, and today we are officially codifying the ban as our policy,” the company says.

The party continues

But how successful will the ban be?

Guests can sometimes check in to remote properties themselves while the owner is away and can invite as many people over as they want.

Airbnb says guests who attempt to violate its rules will face consequences varying from account suspension to full removal from the platform.
