Apple today teased its second retail store in Thailand—Apple Central World, its largest retail location in the country. The store, nestled in the heart of Ratchaprasong, Bangkok’s iconic intersection, opens Friday, 31 July 2020 at 10AM (GMT +8).
Apple will reportedly ship a 20W USB-C charger with its upcoming iPhone 12, although it remains to be seen which models particularly will get the faster unit. The current iPhone 11 Pro, for instance, comes with an 18W USB-C power brick in the box but the iPhone 11 is still bundled with a prehistoric 5W charger.

I know I’m not the only one who’s irked when donning a face mask and struggling to unlock my iPhone with Face ID. There are essentially three options: temporarily remove your mask to unlock with your face; wait a couple of seconds (and sometimes more) for passcode unlock; or use an Android phone/iPhone with a fingerprint sensor. Depending on my mood, I do one of the three. Well, the good news is, Apple has stepped up to make the experience better. With the latest iOS 13.5 update, it’s much quicker and simpler to unlock your iPhone when you’re wearing a face mask.
