Tech Bytes: LG’s new brighter TV
Paying more for a new iPhone battery. Apple just announced plans to charge another $20 for its “out of warranty” battery service for all iPhone models. So the $69 service will go to $89. The new, higher prices start in March.
LG is rolling out a new line of TVs promising to be up to 70% brighter. Some of the company’s new models will feature a so-called per-pixel brightness booster, which LG says creates a much clearer picture during daytime viewing, or in any well-lit room.
Samsung’s updated smart oven is so smart, it can tell what you’re cooking. The oven has a camera inside and detects what you’re making, and will suggest optimal cooking settings. Other highlights include a warning notification to prevent you from burning your meal.
