  1. Minor releases are almost always just maintenance releases. We gather up a fistful of bug reports and fix them to ensure that every month or so, our clients enjoy more stability and efficiency with Invision Community. However, more recently we've noticed that we're running low on bug reports, so we've managed to squeeze in a handful of improvements in Invision Community 4.4.5. Let's take a look and see what's new in Pages. How should the canonical tag behave? While this isn't the most exciting name for a feature, it does explain it reasonably well. We had a recent discussion on the forums where it was pointed out that the canonical tag directed search engines to the first page of any record. While this makes perfect sense for an articles or blog system where the content you create is more important than the comments, it makes less sense if the user-generated content (aka the comments) is more important than the content you put up. A good example here is where you put up a video or link for review. You don't want the canonical tag pointing to the first page as it will ignore the reviews themselves. If you didn't understand much of that, don't worry. The idea behind this feature is to provide Google and friends with a better hint about which content is more important. A happier Google bot slurping your site is a good thing. How about that Admin CP menu? When you create a new database in Pages, it is shown in the ACP menu under 'Content'. This is fine, but when you get a lot of databases, it starts looking a little cluttered, and it can be hard to find the correct one. We've reworked the menu so items have their own section, and can be re-ordered using the ACP menu re-ordering system. Member fields are now filterable. Pages allows specific field types to be filterable. This means you can sort by them with the table's advanced search box, and you can drag and drop a filters widget next to the table to refine the rows shown. Now a member custom field is filterable, which is handy if you use them in your databases. Other areas of the suite. Messenger search A while back, we made a change that removed the ability to search messenger by the sender or recipient name. We also limited the reach of the search system to one year and newer. Unsurprisingly, this wasn't very popular. We've restored sender, and recipient name searching removed the one year limit and re-engineered the internals of search, so it's more efficient and returns results much faster. How many members do you have? You can see quite quickly if you have the member stats widget on the front end, but finding out via the Admin CP is a little more tricky. Until now! We've added a dashboard widget that not only shows the number of members you have registered, but also a break down of their email opt-in status. A happier autocomplete. Apple has this cool feature where if you receive a text message for a two-factor authentication login, it offers to auto-fill the code box for you. We've had a sweep throughout the suite to ensure two-factor authentication fields allow this autocomplete to happen. While we were at it, we made sure that other fields are more easily autocompleted. That wraps up the new features in Invision Community 4.4.5. How many have you spotted after upgrading? Let us know your favourite below.
  2. Arguably one of the most exciting sporting events in the world, the ICC World Cup has a tendency of garnering public interest like no other. The twelfth edition quadrennial event had already created a lot of buzz, even before the opening match. And, why not? The One-Day International (ODI) competition has a knack of bringing gripping contests and exciting individual duels to the fore. This year has, so far, proved to be no different. Thirteen games into the tournament, the ongoing World Cup has already enthralled fans with some memorable moments. But, apart from cricketing action, the ICC spectacle in England & Wales has been marred with persistent rain. © Reuters The ongoing tournament has already witnessed rain having its say in four matches. As many as two games have been abandoned, one led to no result and another was concluded via Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method - all because of rain. The disruptions have not only annoyed the fans, but might end up affecting the title aspirations of the participating nations. Continuing its irritating run, rain is once again proving to be a major winner, keeping the contest between India and New Zealand at Nottingham at bay on 13th June. While the players from both sides patiently wait for the rain to subside, cricket fans took matters into their hands on the social media. Well, the rain has got heavier and the covers are on #CWC19pic.twitter.com/8WYSK1Or4J — BCCI (@BCCI) June 13, 2019 It all began when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), in a bid to keep the fans updated with the rain situation, tweeted: "Well, the rain has got heavier and the covers are on #CWC19". In response to the BCCI's tweet, cricket fans indulged themselves into hilarious takes on the rainy situation.

  3. In an effort "to make aviation more sustainable", KLM Airlines has revealed a new design for an aerodynamic 'Flying-V' plane. It's a radical new aeroplane design that puts passenger seats inside the plane's wings, and it could decrease the amount of fuel needed for flights by a substantial 20 percent. Electric planes too have been in the works with multiple prototypes making round-the-globe trips. But, the technology hasn't been very promising for aeroplanes because of multiple challenges. © KLM The V-Shaped design, on the other hand, was conceived by designer Justus Benad and is being further realised by a team of researchers at the Netherlands' Delft University of Technology. It's claimed the plane will use 20 percent less fuel than the Airbus A350-900 while carrying a similar number of passengers -- the Flying-V will seat 314, while the Airbus A350 seats between 300 and 350 depending on the configuration. One of the features the Flying-V will share with the A350 is an identical wingspan of 65 meters. © Reuters / Airbus A350 "Aviation is contributing about 2.5 percent of global CO2 emissions, and the industry is still growing, so we really need to look at more sustainable aeroplanes," Pieter Elbers, CEO and president of KLM, said in a statement to CNN. The plane's increased fuel efficiency is largely a result of its aerodynamic design, Vos explained, although its reduced weight also contributes. He also further added electric planes are too heavy and can't fly with hundreds of passengers over the Atlantic. The design and technology to operate an electric plane is rather inferior at the moment, and decades away. © KLM The plane also uses the most fuel-efficient turbofan engines that exist, according to KLM. While the current model still uses kerosene, it can be adapted to use electric turbofans in the future. Although we'll have to wait a while to see the Flying-V in its full glory, KLM announced that a "flying scale model and a full-size section of the interior of the Flying-V will be officially presented at the KLM Experience Days at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in October.
  4. Xbox kicked off E3 last night and showcased what the Xbox Game Studios has been cooking for us. Yes, let's just say that there are a ton of games coming your way till 2020. In case you missed Xbox's E3 briefing where Keanu Reeves showed up to blow everyone's mind, well don't worry. That's why this post exists. We're here to help you catch up. So, here are some of the best game announcements from Xbox E3 that are worth checking out. Halo Infinite Although the new Halo was the last game to be showcased at the briefing, we're starting our list with it, because that's how it was. The Master Chief is back and like every year, it will yet again stand as a testament to the new era of Xbox hardware. Gears 5 Microsoft also made it a point to showcase the upcoming Gears 5 title with a bang. Along with a release date for the game, the studio also announced a new game mode called 'Escape' that looks classy and gorier than ever. Cyberpunk 2077 Oh yes! Cyberpunk 2077 was also showcased. And to our surprise, CD Projekt Red revealed that Keanu Reeves is going to be in the game, which is driving all the fans crazy. Here, watch the extended trailer yourself - Minecraft Dungeons We're already getting a new Minecraft game for Android and iOS called Minecraft Earth. But at E3, Microsoft revealed the highly anticipated four-player co-op game 'Minecraft Dungeons' for the first time. It looks awesome and we can't wait. Forza Horizon 4: Lego Speed Champions Last year, we got to see Forza's collaboration with 'Hot Wheels' for Forza Horizon 3. And this year for the Forza Horizon 4, a new Lego expansion is coming. Seriously, how cool is that? Yes, you can now take the fun and blocky Lego cars for a spin alongside the realistic ones in Forza Horizon 4. Elden Ring Last, but not least, we have the new 'Elden Ring'. This is the new title that we all have been waiting for. 'Elden Ring' is a brand new game created by the same people who made Dark Souls games, Bloodborne, and the new Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Not just that, they've teamed up with 'A Song of Ice and Fire' and 'Game of Thrones' creator George R.R. Martin, so we can only imagine how this game will turn out to be. In addition to the ones mentioned above, we also got to see games like 'Flight Simulator', 'Lego Star Wars - The Skywalker Saga', Blair Witch', etc. for the first time. You can quickly head over to Xbox's official YouTube channel or social media handles to check out the other games. And by the way, the new Xbox is also coming. Microsoft didn't really reveal any specs or tell us what it'll look like, but we do know that they're calling it the 'Project Scarlett'. Here, check it out - The new Xbox console is coming next year and it looks like it's going to be a powerhouse.
  5. Microsoft finally showed us some more detailed about the upcoming Halo game last night at E3 and its back in action with Master Chief. Halo Infinite is apparently an open-world game and we also got to see Cortana back in his helmet after a very long time. The game is set to launch next year on Holiday 2020 alongside Xbox Scarlett as a launch title. © Microsoft The sixth instalment in the franchise was teased last year at E3 and the new trailer gives us a closer look at Master Chief. The trailer showed a UNSC soldier being stranded in space and gets contacted by a ship nearby. In the process of locating the ship, the soldier discovers Master Chief floating in space in survival mode. Master Chief is brought back to life from Survival Mode and the ship is soon attacked by enemies. Master Chief then gets ready to face the enemies that later transitions into the title screen. Master Chief is then seen slotting Cortana into his helmet while her voice can be heard saying, "I chose you because you were special. I knew we would be perfect together. And I was right.” © Microsoft Microsoft shared a vague description of the game that says it finds "Master Chief on an all-new adventure as he uncovers the mysteries surrounding the appearance of The Pilot and the desolate remains of a Halo ring.” Halo Infinite will be also coming to Xbox One and PC, and will also be included in Microsoft's new Xbox Game Pass subscription service. This will be the first time a Halo Game will be coming to PC at the same time as its console launch. Are you excited for Halo Infinite? Have you seen the trailer yet? If not, you can watch it below to know more details about the upcoming game.
  6. Microsoft finally announced more details about the new Xbox currently codenamed as "Project Scarlett" at its E3 briefing last night. The new console has quite a few tricks up its sleeve; however, we were told more about is technical specifications. © Microsoft The new console is expected to be 4 times more powerful than the Xbox One X and is powered by an AMD chipset. Microsoft claims that the new console will be able to push up to 120 frames per second and will also come with an SSD to reduce load times in games. Current consoles run mechanical drives that are significantly slower than SSDs. The solid state drive will also function as virtual memory to improve load times. "A console should be built and optimised for one thing and one thing only: Gaming," Xbox head Phil Spencer said during the briefing. © Microsoft The company also revealed that the next instalment in the Halo franchise i.e. Halo Infinite will be a launch title for the upcoming console. Microsoft did not reveal the official launch date of the console but did detail that it will be coming to stores in Holiday 2020. Xbox Scarlett will have a custom Zen 2 processor from AMD, GDDR6 RAM, and capable of 8K visuals. The new console is expected to support accessories such as the Xbox One controller and games in the next generation of consoles. © Microsoft During the pre-show of the briefing, the company did hint about the new console with coded messages. One of the videos showed the code R255 while the other video showed “G 36” and “ B O.” When the codes are put together it basically reads RGB (255, 36, 0) which also happens to be the colour code for Scarlett. Are you excited about the new console by Microsoft? What features would you like to see in the upcoming console? Let us know in the comments.
  7. June 16th 2019 is the day when we will all lose our peace and voice box collectively, cheering on India and Pakistan, who're playing against each other in the ICC World Cup 2019. Although, an India-Pakistan match fervour isn't old news, it's still celebrated and watched by everyone due to the history we've shared with Pakistan all along. During the 2015 ICC World Cup, Star Sports came up with a campaign or theme for the promo of the Indo-Pak match and although it flew well with us Indians, the Pakistanis weren't too pleased with it. The 'Mauka Mauka' ads gained immense popularity amongst the masses and the theme caught on like common cold, all over the country. (c)Star Sports This year, Mauka Mauka is back with a bang, and this time it's promoting the Indo-Pak match on the 16th of June 2019, the same day Father's day is celebrated all across the world and the advertisement has a 'slight' mention of that. As expected, the ad is humouring Pakistan's dismissal record against India in ICC events and it seems it's making the Pakistanis a tad angry, but really, no one cares because it's all in light humour. (c)Star Sports Here, take a look at some savagery! The video shows actor Vikas Malhotra who plays the Pakistan son remembering his father's words on how one should keep trying and never give up, and the Indian fan in the ad shows some savagery by taking the 'baap' dig on the Pakistani player. Obviously the Pakistanis showed a bit of resentment over the ad and aren't happy with the Mauka Mauka campaign, promoting the match between the two countries. This #FathersDay, watch an ICC #CWC19 match jo dekh ke bas bol sakte hain, “baap re baap!” ð Catch #INDvPAK in the race for the #CricketKaCrown, LIVE on June 16th, only on Star Sports! pic.twitter.com/Apo3R8QrbO — Star Sports (@StarSportsIndia) 9 June 2019 I think you guy's have forgotten last father's day your father beated you in Champions trophy Final. #CWC19 #INDvAUS — Fareed Ahmad ðµð° (@fareed_official) 9 June 2019 BC, itni ð Kuttay wali hone k baad bhi ð pic.twitter.com/ZliJP8VEGx — Ø¢Ù¾Û ÚÙÛØ¯Ø±Û ð (@ChaudhriUmar) 9 June 2019 Star Sports and all those liking this add really need to work on their humor.

  8. Ever since the first trailer for the live-action remake of the Disney classic and my all-time favourite movie, 'The Lion King' dropped, I have been literally counting the days until its release. I'm going to be honest, the wait is killing me! It physically hurts! via GIPHY Watching furry little baby Simba sneezing in the trailer, damn near broke my heart, as it was exactly like the animated version from 1994. Every detail was perfect! via GIPHY via GIPHY What I like about the live-action version is that it seems to be sticking to the old recipe, and is not trying hard to be different or pull out some crazy tricks from a new hat in an attempt to set itself apart from the original. via GIPHY Why fix what isn't broken, right? Sigh…wish someone had told that to the makers of 'Aladdin'. via GIPHY Okay. I don't wanna go there now. It's a Pandora's Box, and I am still trying to get over what my eyes witnessed in the hall! Anyway, last week, we finally got to hear the voice of Beyonce as Nala, and man! She sounds good. I mean, when has she ever not? That was a convincing bunch of seconds when we got to hear her asking Simba to come home and finally take his place as the rightful king of the Pride Lands. via GIPHY Oh man, I just can't wait to 'feel the love tonight' between these two! via GIPHY A few days ago, a new Japanese trailer for the movie was dropped and it contained some deliciously fresh clips, giving us a taste of what was in store for us. Besides the iconic “everything the light touches” scene, the new clip shows baby Simba and Mufasa rolling about and having a fun father-son moment, which was so freaking adorable! (I am going to have such a hard time controlling myself from squealing when I see little Simba on the big screen!) via GIPHY Mufasa is seen trying to teach Simba the art of tracking prey and poor Zazu becomes the casualty! via GIPHY This took me right back to the 'I just can't wait to be king' track, which focuses on the push-and-pull chemistry between the two. via GIPHY Guys, keep mentally preparing yourself for July 19th 2019. You need to be ready for the freight train of feels and emotions that's gonna hit us. For us 90s kids in particular, it's going to be a landmark day. So, 'Be Prepared'. via GIPHY The movie is directed by Jon Favreau. The cast includes Donald Glover (Simba), Beyonce (Nala), James Earl Jones (Mufasa) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar).
  9. HMD Global has been launching a lot of new Nokia phones in India lately. Recently we saw the new Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2 making their way into the Indian market, and now, we have the new Nokia 2.2 as well. The new Nokia 2.2 is an entry-level budget phone which comes with a trendy waterdrop notch display on the front and a dedicated Google Assistant button on the right. Let's check it out. © Nokia Nokia 2.2 sports a 5.71” 19:9 HD+ display on the front with a waterdrop notch. It is powered by the MediaTek Helio A22 processor and is coupled with up to 3GB RAM and 32GB storage with support for up to 400GB storage via a microSD card. As for the optics, the Nokia 2.2 has a 13MP f/2.2 rear-facing camera with a single LED flash. On the front, there's a 5MP selfie shooter. Camera features include HDR, panorama, low light enhancement, timelapse, Beautify, Google Lens, etc. Nokia 2.2 sports a 3,000 mAh battery inside which should keep the running for at least a full day on a single charge with moderate usage. And just like the other Nokia phones, this one is also a part of Google Android One program and it's running on Android 9 Pie out of the box. HMD Global also says that it'll get Android Q update in the future, which is a good thing. © YouTube Other noteworthy features of the phone include a 3.5mm headphone jack, Face Unlock and a dedicated Google Assistant button on the side. Pricing & Availability The new Nokia 2.2 will be available in Tungsten Black and Steel color variants at an introductory starting price of Rs. 6,999. You'll also be able to pick up the 3GB + 32GB variant for Rs. 7,999 till June 30th. After that, both variants will be retailing for Rs. 1,000 higher i.e Rs. 7,999 for the base variant and Rs. 8,999 for the 3GB + 32GB variant. The smartphone will be available pan-India across top mobile retail outlets and online on Flipkart and Nokia.com/phones starting 11th June 2019.
  10. Apple decided to knock it out of the park with the new Mac Pro. It's one of the best and the most powerful pieces of hardware that Apple has ever put out. But with a starting price of $6,000, the Mac Pro, needless to say, is a pricey affair. That $6,000 price tag (roughly Rs 4.15 lakhs), by the way, is for the base variant of the Mac Pro. Apple decided to remain tight-lipped when it comes to the price of a maxed-out Mac Pro, which sort of makes it pretty obvious that it's not going to be cheap. Nope, not happening. In fact, the folks over at TheVerge decided to play around the number a bit and came up with an estimated figure. They shopped around for equivalent part that Apple announced during the keynote, and turns out, it's going to cost you a lot of money. Like, a lot. Well, before we tell you how much it'll most likely cost, let's check out how powerful a fully maxed-out Mac Pro really is. Once Apple puts it out on the market for purchase, you can configure a Mac Pro with a 28-core Intel Xeon W processor, to begin with. That's significantly more powerful than the 18-core iMac that they launched last year, which is already a beast of a machine. In addition to that processor, you can configure the Mac Pro with, wait for it, 1.5TB of RAM. No, that is not a typo. You can actually get a Mac Pro with 1.5 Terabytes of RAM. Also, you can get up to 4TB SSD and four AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs. That is, of course, if you can afford even one. © Apple As you can see, Apple's new Mac Pro is one of the most powerful computers out there on the market right now. The amount of performance you can get out of this machine is something that's almost impossible to comprehend. So, how much is it going to cost? According to TheVerge, a fully maxed out Mac Pro i.e. the top-of-the-line Mac Pro complete with a 28-Core Xeon processor, 1.5TB RAM, and all that good stuff will cost you at least $33,000, which roughly translates to about Rs. 22 lakhs. But wait, we haven't even added GPUs yet, which could easily bump the price up to around an eye-watering $45,000 i.e. roughly around Rs. 32 lakhs. Now, this isn't an iMac Pro we're talking about here, so you have to buy a monitor separately. Lucky for you, Apple also introduced a new 6K display called Pro Display XDR monitor. As the name suggests, it's basically the best monitor has ever created and it's apparently comparable to reference monitors out there that cost upwards of $40,000. © YouTube So, if you add that to the price to make it a fully maxed-out Mac Pro setup with Apple's best display, then you're looking at at least $50,000 which is roughly Rs 35 lakhs. Oh, you know what? Apple is not including the stand for the display inside the box, so please add that as well. That'll cost you an additional $1,000. Go figure! Do make a note that these are just estimates based on the prices of the components that are already out there on the market. We still don't know how much Apple is going to charge you for a fully maxed-out Mac Pro. But looking at Apple's history of pricing, you can expect it to be more than the market standard. And if you're planning to buy one in India, then you'll also have to factor the import duties, which is only going to make it more expensive. That being said, the new Mac Pro's, at least a fully a maxed-out Mac Pro, isn't meant for average everyday users anyway. By the word 'Pro', Apple is targetting the 'true' professionals like cinematographers and filmmakers. We can totally imagine the folks over at some film studio using a fully maxed-out Mac Pro to edit huge chunks of files.
  11. We all knew Tony Stark would be a big part of 'Spiderman: Far From Home' but were we prepared for that? I don't know. Every new trailer or any footage since the release of 'Avengers: Endgame' has talked about Tony - and the fact that he's dead now - and well, now we're learning more and more about him still. In the Iron Man movies, we've seen Tony spending a lot of time in his lab working on his suits and well, 'Spiderman: FFH' shows his 'ward' Peter Parker working in his lab in one of Tony's planes. Remember Peter wearing Tony's glasses in the second official trailer? Now, we get to see what they actually do. Here's a compilation of a bunch of international teasers and trailers that have come out till now. So many new scenes, yet we still don't what the f**k is happening with the multiverse. That will be exciting to watch in just a few months. Actually, here's another set of teasers. Along with all of that, there's apparently a 'leaked' trailer as well which has a bunch of new footage along with everything we've seen before. BROTHERS AND SISTERS I PRESENT TO YOU pic.twitter.com/nC7iNu18i7 — *â§ï½¥ï¾* ð¤ðð²ð¥ð *ï½¥ï¾â§* (@suitedspidey) June 1, 2019 Yes, it's not exactly leaked since it looks like it probably played at some theatre before a movie. ('Endgame', I'm guessing) 'Spiderman: Far From Home' is almost here but it still seems so far away, and we really are dealing with some serious MCU withdrawal right now. July 2nd cannot come fast enough.
  12. Besides all the kickass software, Apple wowed everyone by unveiling a glorious new Mac Pro at the WWDC 2019 keynote. We've been waiting for a new Mac Pro since 2013 and Apple has packed this piece of hardware with high-end specs like a 28-core Intel Xeon processor and an Afterburner movie-editing graphics card. As good as it is from the inside, well, we sadly can't say the same for its exterior design. It features a boxy silver case with matching feet and handles. Alright fine, let's just admit it, the new Mac Pro looks like a cheese grater! Seriously, just like the mesh panel on the front and back. You can't unsee it now. And as always, Twitter was quick enough to welcome Apple's shiny new design with some freshly made memes. Here are a few of them that'll make you hungry for more cheese grater memes: Oh yes! We can't wait for the videos. So who's the first YouTuber that's going to ACTUALLY grate cheese on their new @Apple Mac Pro just for the views? ð§ð§ð§ #MacNCheesePro #MacPro #WWDC19 pic.twitter.com/hYz3t1O6AP — Brian Tong (@briantong) June 3, 2019 28 Chedderflops of memory?

  13. Apple is bringing major changes to the iPad as the Cupertino giant unveiled iPadOS last night at WWDC. Some of these features were highly requested by iPad users for better usability, functionality and adaptability. Apple announced the new iPadOS with new features that brings the iPad closer to laptops. Here are the features announced by Apple for iPadOS: 1. Mouse Support iPad users have requested mouse support for a while especially since the new iPad Pro is powerful enough to take on most laptops. For now, Apple has implemented mouse support as an AssistiveTouch feature which we feel is just the starting point. This feature at the moment simulates the touch action and can be done using a mouse instead. Currently, the feature is compatible with Apple's Magic Trackpad, and wireless Bluetooth mice. USB mice are reportedly supported but we can only be sure once it rolls out. Hello mouse support on iOS 13! It's an AssistiveTouch feature, and works with USB mice. @viticci nailed this pic.twitter.com/nj6xGAKSg0 — Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) June 3, 2019 2. USB File Transfers © Apple In order to come closer to a laptop's functionality, Apple's Files app needed additional support for better files management. Most users wanted support for USB drives and Apple is finally bringing support on the iPadOS. The new operating system will allow users to easily plug in USB drives, SD cards or log into an SMB file server. There's also support for importing photos directly from a camera into Lightroom. 3. Second Screen © Apple If you own a Macbook and want additional screen space, the iPad will now be able to fill that void. iPadOS brings the added feature of using your iPad as a secondary display. You can even use the iPad to edit images on your MacBook in real time. 4. Better Multitasking © Apple iPad users can now work with multiple files and documents from the same app simultaneously with updates to Split View, or can quickly view and switch between multiple apps in Slide Over. For example, customers can compose an email while viewing another email side by side or access multiple apps like Messages or Calendar with just a swipe. The iPad OS will be available for beta users later this month and is available now for Apple Developer Program members.
  14. Apple finally announced the new iOS 13 for iPhones and iPod Touch during the WWDC 2019 keynote yesterday. Yes, iOS is no longer available for iPad and that's because the company announced a new OS for iPads called iPadOS. iOS 13, in case you don't know, comes with a bunch of new features like Dark Mode, a couple of redesigned apps, faster app loading times, faster FaceID and more. © Apple According to Apple, the first public beta of iOS 13 will launch in July. But if the curiosity to try out the new OS is killing you, then you can actually install and check out the iOS 13 beta right now. Yes, it's possible and here's how you can do it. How To Install iOS 13 Right Now In order to install iOS 13 on your iPhone right now, you'll need a paid Apple developer account. That's because this isn't a public iOS 13 beta rollout. The beta software is only available for the developer to play with the OS and make compatible apps. If you're not a developer and don't have a developer account, then you can enroll for one right here. Do make a note that not all users are eligible to have a developer account, so you might not be able to create one right away. If you have a paid developer account, then you visit this page of the Apple Developer site to download the beta software right now. Again, do make a note that this won't be an OTA update, so you'll have to manually install the update. Wait For The Public Beta While the developer beta is out right now, we suggest you wait for the public rollout next month. For one, it'll be free to download and can be loaded via an OTA update. It'll also be slightly more polished than the developer beta that's out right now. Also, before you proceed, it's worth pointing out that it's best to create a back up before installing the beta software. Failing to do so will force you to be stuck with the beta version of iOS 13, which may or may not be very stable for daily use. Supported iPhones & iPods © Apple According to Apple, these are devices that can take part in the iOS 13 beta - iPhone XS, XS Max iPhone XR iPhone X iPhone 8, 8 Plus iPhone 7, 7 Plus iPhone 6s, 6s Plus iPhone SE iPod Touch 7th Generation Well, now that you know everything about iOS 13 beta, go ahead and check out all the new features that are available.
  15. Last night, Apple announced a bunch of new features for the upcoming iOS 13 update and it will be available for users by this fall. Some features bring stability and performance improvements. While there are general improvements, Apple has also added new features and a brand new dark mode. If you've been wondering what all Apple announced last night, here's our comprehensive list for the smartphone. A Faster FaceID Apple announced that the facial recognition process from the TrueDepth camera will be 30% faster than what we are used to right now. The faster unlocking will help users get into their smartphones without having to wait for FaceID to recognise your face. The process is already fast enough but with the 30% improvement, it could really change the way we would unlock iPhones. Dark Mode © Apple A dark mode for iPhone is one the most sought after features and Apple finally made it a reality last night. The iPhone's interface will change into darker tones and will also translate to system-wide apps and third-party apps who enable the feature. The new dark mode comes with added benefits such as better battery life and the fact that it would put less strain on your eyes. Sign In With Apple © Apple Apple has made it easier for customers to now protect themselves with a new “Sign in with Apple” feature. You will no longer have to use Facebook or Google sign in which can be later used to track your activity. Apple wants to protect users by providing a developer with a random unique ID. Users will also have the option to keep their identities a secret and share relevant information with the application. Apple has also integrated FaceID and Touch ID for this feature as an additional layer of security. More Photo Editing Tools © Apple Apple is now going to make it easier to manage and edit images on iOS 13 thanks to machine learning. The Photos app will be able to highlight the best images, automatically remove duplicate images or screenshots and will intelligently organise your library. It will be even easier to discover and browse your images. Photo editing tools have now been expanded with more Portrait Lighting adjustments, more editing tools, new effects and a better interface. Apple has also introduced a new High-Key Mono effect that creates a monochromatic look for Portrait mode photos. Additional Features - Messages can automatically share a user's name and photo, or customised Memoji or Animoji -With AirPods, Siri can read incoming messages as soon as they arrive, from Messages or any SiriKit™-enabled messaging app - Two AirPods can listen to content from a single iPhone as Apple introduced a new audio sharing feature. - Voice Control provides a powerful new experience that enables users to operate their iPhone, iPad or Mac entirely by their voice. - Files app introduces the ability to share folders with iCloud Drive and access files from external storage devices like SD cards and USB flash drives. - Reminders app has a new look and offers intelligent ways to create and edit reminders.
  16. From 'Twilight' to 'Batman', from Forks to Gotham, Robert Pattinson has come a long long way. Yep, he is officially the new Batman, and obviously, a lot of people aren't excited about that. But, for people who hate him just because he was in 'Twilight', I would just like to remind you that he hated the movies more than anyone could ever do. No actor will ever hate their own movie as passionately as Robert Pattinson hated Twilight pic.twitter.com/gEcWJFQ8vz — Professor Snape (@_Snape_) May 31, 2019 He was very smart, to be honest. He did this huge franchise, earned a lot of money and then went and did all the Indie movies he wanted. That deserves respect. Now that this is out of the way, let's come back to the huge news. 'The Batman' is all set to start shooting this summer and will be released about two years from now, in June 2021. That's quite a long wait but since they just finalised the main lead, we'll have to wait a long time to see how RPattz (does anyone even call him that anymore?) does as the caped crusader. While we know that he's a good actor, a lot of people don't agree with him being the new Batman and are not holding back in showing their disapproval. But, it's okay, a lot of people are in favour of it as well. Im still not ok with Robert Pattinson being #Batman - approved or nothttps://t.co/4GHM7tInXq — Chi Chi Izundu (@blondeafro) May 31, 2019 Two very different opinions. Pattinson is a remarkable actor and an outstanding choice for the new Batman. — N O S â Æ I á´ á´ Æ á¡ ⊥ ⊥ O Æ S (@scottderrickson) May 31, 2019 Exactly, it'll be so much fun.

  17. We are two days into the ICC World Cup 2019 and have already seen two every different kinds of matches until now. While the first match between England and South Africa showed the cricketing genius of the World Cup hosts, the second match between Pakistan and West Indies became the talk of the town for Pakistan's batting order that came crumbling down against Oshane Thomas-led Windies bowling attack. Moving on to yet another battle of a titan and a mortal, New Zealand vs Sri Lanka. New Zealand Credit: Reuters Led by the batting marvel, Kane WIlliamson, the New Zealand cricket team is one of the better rosters to take part in the Cricket World Cup 2019, although like England, the Kiwis have never had the honour of lifting the World Cup trophy. Having said that, their warm-up game win against the mighty Team India by restricting them to a mere 179-run total showed the potential in their bowling attack. On the other hand, their second warm-up game against the Windies which albeit ended in a loss, showed their ability to chase a big total. In order to begin their World Cup 2019 journey on a high, the skipper, WIlliamson would require his side to click as a unit against an underwhelming Sri Lankan team. Squad: Kane Williamson (c), Tom Blundell (wk), Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wk), Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee and Ross Taylor. Sri Lanka Credit: Reuters Dysfunctional, lacking in team spirit and in the absence of a good leader, not a lot is expected out of the Sri Lankan cricket team this World Cup. The nation that once toppled the mighty Australia to win the 1996 world championship, has not been able to follow suit ever since. The Lankan brigade had some unfortunate warm-up games, going against two really good rosters in South Africa and Australia. Both the games showed flaws different aspects of Sri Lanka's game. Against South Africa, the team was unable to stop the bleeding of runs and ended up facing a score too big for them to chase. On the other hand, Australia was successful in capitalising on their lack of world class batsmen on the roster. Squad: Dimith Karunaratne(c), Angelo Mathews, Thisara Perera, Kusal Perera(wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Mendis(wk), Isuru Udana, Milinda Siriwardana, Avishka Fernando, Jeevan Mendis, Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeffrey Vandersay, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga Lakmal.

  18. Apple announced a brand new iPod touch yesterday with a familiar design targeting a familiar audience. Apple has always been deeply involved with music and if you love to listen to music on-the-go, the new iPod touch is for you. The iPod touch is probably the only comprehensive portable music device you can buy right now and Apple has updated it with some great features and hardware. Apple customers may already own an iPhone but not everyone has upgraded to the latest device and are taking advantage of some exclusive features such as Augmented Reality games and the ability to use AirPods without any hassle. The iPod touch is the perfect gadget for someone who doesn't really need a new phone but still wants access to his/her music. The iPhone SE is also a great option to look at; however, storage space can be an issue as it maxes out at 128GB. So here are some of the reasons why you should think about buying an iPod touch if love listening to music: Upgradeable Software The new iPod touch comes with A10 Fusion chip which means you can upgrade the firmware of your iPod touch to at least iOS 14 when it comes out. Apple does a great job at optimising iOS for devices with older chipsets and the iPod touch will be no exception. It's More Than Just Music The iPod touch comes with Apple's A10 Fusion chip which basically enables Augmented Reality (AR) features, Group FaceTime and iMessage communication. Since the iPod touch is not a full-blown smartphone, you can use the iPod touch for various purposes such as gaming, basic communication and internet browsing. Gaming © Apple Since the iPod touch has Apple's A10 Fusion chip, it can handle most graphics intensive games and will be an integral part of Apple's upcoming Apple Arcade subscription platform. Apple Arcade will have the ability to people play games offline, and if you love to game on-the-go, the iPod touch is perfect for you. Augmented Reality © YouTube If you are interested in Augmented Reality apps, websites and games, the iPod touch is capable of delivering the same experience as the iPhone. It is by far the cheapest product by Apple if you want to use it for playing AR games. Augmented reality is also being used as a great tool for educational applications it puts virtual items in the real world around you. Music © Apple The primary purpose of having the iPod touch is for having the ability to store music on your device for offline play. You can also take advantage of music streaming by using Apple Music or Spotify and keep your favourite music locally downloaded on your device. If you love streaming radio, you have access to countless apps from the App Store or you could always listen to my favourite Beats 1 channel on Apple Music. It Has A Headphone Jack The iPod touch is one of Apple's latest devices that has a headphone jack. If you have invested in a nice pair of cans or earphones, you finally have a small device that is deeply integrated with Apple's ecosystem and enjoy music the way you want to. Using wired headphones always deliver a better audio experience and you can read more about it here It Works With AirPods If you are one of those people that prefer convenience over sound quality, you can pair Apple's AirPods seamlessly with the new iPod touch. This is partly thanks to the A10 Fusion chip and it was the same chipset that enabled the feature on the iPhone 7.
  19. The entire country was just catching up to why the hell JCB excavators are everywhere right now, but desi Twitter has already come up with a new meme and I have to say, it's way better than the #JCBKiKhudai memes. The new money meme (What is the official meme name?) is here and it's the most relatable meme I've seen, to be honest. Desi meme-makers have taken something simple and turned it into quite a hilarious thing. The meme basically consists of two pictures - one of a stack of â¹500 notes, and the other is a single, lonely old â¹100 note - and people are giving it the context in the sense of expensive and cheap things. Okay, that doesn't sound that funny but it's a little difficult to sum it up, so I'll just show how brilliant it is and why literally every single person could see that meme and say 'I feel that, bro'.

  20. Despite participating in the tournament since its advent in 1975, New Zealand are yet to lift the coveted trophy. But, under the leadership of Brendon McCullum, the Kiwis came mighty close to clinching the World Cup title in 2015, but a seven-wicket loss at the hands of Australia left them heartbroken. Irrespective of their previous failings, Kane Williamson-led New Zealand has been in good form and are still one of the top contenders for the World Cup title this year. Their 15-man squad is comprised of proven match-winners who are more than capable of powering them to the all-important final of the ICC spectacle. In Williamson and Ross Taylor, the Kiwis have enough experience which adds stability to their batting order. And, the likes of Tim Southee and Trent Boult are more than capable of running through the opposition's batting line-up. May the wicket provide some turn, their spin duo of Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi can also come in handy. On paper, New Zealand undoubtedly look solid and fit the profile of a top contender. But, if the Kiwis intend to script a successful campaign, the following five players must come to the party: Trent Boult © Reuters Owing to his ability to move the ball both ways even in unresponsive conditions, Trent Boult, over the years, has established his reputation as one of the most feared fast bowlers in international cricket. The left-arm seamer has been a force to be reckoned with in limited-overs cricket for New Zealand and going into the World Cup, he'll undoubtedly carry the baton for his side. His lightening quick speed and swing abilities given him an unpredictable nature with the new ball which he can execute to perfection in English conditions - something that was in full display during New Zealand's warm-up tie against India recently. Making full use of the conditions, Boult was at his menacing best as he claimed impressive figures of 4-33 to script a comprehensive six-wicket win for his side. Kane Williamson © Reuters Arguably one the of the best batsmen in the world, Kane Williamson has been carrying New Zealand, at times single-handedly, to victories over the years. A true leader and great batsman, Williamson has proved to be the decisive factor for his side in crunch matches. The top-order batsman exudes calm at the crease and frequently puts together stubborn knocks before meticulously organising his field and arranging his bowling attacks to successfully defend low totals. Going into the ICC spectacle, New Zealand will once again look up to their pragmatic captain for inspiration as they aim to clinch their maiden World Cup trophy this year. Ross Taylor © Reuters An aggressive top-order batsman who's capable of taking up the challenge to any bowling attack, Ross Taylor has been living up to the reputation of one of New Zealand's batting mainstays over the years. The right-handed batsman boasts of a vast experience and enough know-how of the game, making him a vital cog in New Zealand's batting line-up. For someone who can adapt to any situation, Taylor's temperament and skills were in full display during New Zealand's six-wicket win over tournament hot-shots India in the warm-up tie recently. With his methodical knock of 71 runs, Taylor anchored the chase for the Kiwis with captain Williamson who smashed 67 runs. His ability to stitch partnerships down in the middle is something that his team will rely upon should they find themselves in a crunch situation at the World Cup. Martin Guptill © Reuters Owing to his explosive batting at the top, Martin Guptill has established himself as one of the most efficient openers in limited-overs cricket. Capable of playing all the shots in the books, Guptill's short-arm pull on one leg is arguably the one that stands out. When it comes to the big events, Guptill thrives on challenges which makes him key to New Zealand's success in England & Wales this year. The 32-year-old finished as tournament's leading run-scorer in the 2015 edition where he scored 547 runs including the blistering double-hundred against West Indies that powered New Zealand into the semifinals. In the upcoming mega event, Guptill will once again be expected to put his best foot forward as the Kiwis aim to avenge their 2015 heartbreak. Mitchell Santner © Reuters An efficient spinner and a capable batsman, Mitchell Santner was labelled as New Zealand's next Daniel Vettori when he first surfaced on international circuit in 2015. Though he might have struggled to keep his place in the side, but there is little doubt over the left-arm spinner's capabilities. In 90 limited-overs matches, Santner has done his bit with a tally of 97 wickets to his name. His bowling expertise was in full display during his last match for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL where he registered impressive figures of 2-13 earlier this year. Apart from spin bowling, Santner is more than handy with the bat. In pressure situations, the 27-year-old can hold fort at one end and, if need be, can go hammer and tongs at the opposition bowlers.
  21. AMD announced a new chipset at Computex in Taipei today which is said to challenge Intel's top of the line Core i9 9920X chipset. It's called the Ryzen 9 3900x chip that has 24 threads and 12 cores making it one of the top gaming processors today. Another impressive feat about the new processor is its price, AMD announced the Ryzen 9 3900x chipset will sell for $499, which is half the price of Intel's offering. © YouTube Currently, Intel's Core i9 9920X chipset costs t $1,189 and upwards. Even when adding import duties for Indian customers, AMD's offering is very much more affordable and may just become the preferred choice amongst gamers. Here's an exclusive #COMPUTEX2019 look at the newest edition to the Ryzen family, the 12 core/24 thread 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor. https://t.co/OgLHoqWv9T pic.twitter.com/75FzfpdiKx — AMD Ryzen (@AMDRyzen) May 27, 2019 The 3900x is clocked at 4.6 GHz boost speed and has a total cache of 70 MB. In fact, it even uses less power than Intel's i9 9920 x as it has a 105 watts of thermal design power whereas the i9 uses 165 watts. AMD claims that in a Blender demo the 3900x is 18 per cent faster than Intel's offering. To say the least, AMD has also launched more affordable chips from the same family i.e. a 6-core, 12-thread 3600 for $329 and an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 3700x (with 4.4 GHz boost, 36 MB of total cache and a 65-watt TDP); for $329 and an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 3800X (4.5 GHz, 32MB cache, 105w) for $399. The pricing on the new AMD processors are not only aggressive but makes it more affordable for PC gaming markets such as India. © AMD AMD also announced the next foundational gaming architecture i.e. RDNA. RDNA will power the upcoming 7nm Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards, which feature high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for the PCIe 4.0 interface. Currently, the pricing has not been revealed yet but we expect it to be cheaper than Nvidia's offering.
  22. "He may have aged, but he's still a lion uncaged!" We are not saying this, the makers and scriptwriters of 'Bharat' are, in this latest dialogue promo that was released today. Well, we don't know when Salman Khan's transition from being a 'Tiger' to a lion happened, but he's fierce regardless. And this promo is just a glimpse of how 'Bharat' is going to be much more than Salman romancing and dancing with Katrina Kaif and Disha Patani. T-Series In case you didn't know this already, the movie is a remake of the South Korean hit film 'An Ode To My Father' and will see Salman Khan in different characters ranging from an 18-year-old to a 72-year-old. T-Series We have already seen in trailers and teasers how Salman will look like as a circus artist or as a Navy officer, now it's time for us to see how an old Salman (probably in his 70s) will look like, while fighting with goons. T-Series The 20-second video shows a grandpa Salman being bullied by some goons. As expected Salman's 'andar ka boodha sher' awakens and he thrashes all of them with his bare hands (something only he can do). Is it just me or the action scenes and Salman looked strikingly similar to how he was in 'Kick' (only some years older)? Maybe, if 'Kick' makers ever plan to make a series, here's how Salman will look like in 'Kick 20'. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, 'Bharat' is releasing on June 5 and also stars Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff and Nora Fatehi.
  23. The guru of romance and relationships, Karan Johar aka KJo is coming out with a brand new show, which will be all about love, on Netflix, and we can't wait to check it out. Known for his charm, wit, and for creating larger-than-life cinematic experiences, Karan Johar is back with something exciting for his fans and friends. Everyone's BFF, Karan is setting the stage to give love a new perspective and this time, it's without conjecture. 'What The Love? With Karan Johar', a one-of-a-kind dating reality show will be hosted by the man himself. Known for telling great love stories, Karan will be sharing his thoughts on love and relationships, but with an unexpected twist. Netflix Remember a time when dating shows were a thing in India? It was what drove huge amount of numbers towards actual reality TV and to recreate something similar right now is the need of the hour. Why, you ask? Well, because, dating and relationships have become so frivolous and rushed in the general, everyone wants to flee to see 'what's next', through a dating app. But maybe we all need a little 'old-school' 101 on romance and we can't think of anyone better than KJo himself, who, will in all probability, help couples figure out how to hold on to love rather than holding on to an escape plan instead! This is probably not how presents work but on the occasion of his birthday we've decided to gift ourselves a dating show hosted by @karanjohar. What The Love?

  24. When Arnold Schwarzenegger said "I'll be back" in 'The Terminator' (1984), he truly meant it. Almost 34 years later, he's really coming back for the fan-favourite franchise, 'Terminator: Dark Fate'. 'The Terminator' was the much-liked franchise amongst the kids who grew up in the 80s and 90s and it was the best action movie to come at its time. © TriStar Pictures And now, half the cast is back to recreate the action-packed thrill we've missed all these years. Yes, you read that right, half the cast is back! Watch the trailer below: The film is set 27 years after what happened in 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' and as always, there is someone on a mission to protect someone, giving it its truest essence. Here's what's evident in 'Terminator: Dark Fate', based on the trailer (1) Linda Hamilton Is Back Linda Hamilton is back as Sarah Connor and her reprisal of the character after 27 years is what's convincing the fans that 'Dark Fate', as a sequel, will be completely different and better than the last few. The franchise has hit some bleak spots in the past with a fresh cast and an ambiguous plotline but this time, Sarah is back to save someone from the 'borgs again (not Jon Connor) and she looks pretty damn good. © Paramount Pictures (2) T-800 Is Back A Well The iconic T-800, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger is actually back, making this an original sequel, from last where they left off. Last we remember, Arnie aka T-800 died in a molten pit of lava in T2 and now he's back. I am sure there's a good explanation of how and why he's back. Although the trailer doesn't show him more than once, I am sure he has a good 'back' story. © Paramount Pictures (3) This Is The Original Sequel To 'Terminator 2' Although yes, 'Dark Fate' is the sixth instalment in the 'Terminator' franchise, it's a direct sequel to 'T2: Judgement Day', nudging out 'Terminator: 3 Rise of the Machines', 'Terminator: Salvation' and 'Terminator: Genisys'. So, if you haven't seen anything in this franchise after 'Terminator 2', you're pretty damn okay because they plan to pick up the story where they left it, from 'Judgement Day'. The film is pretty much designed to be a start of a new trilogy and that's something that makes us incredibly happy, especially after 'Salvation' and 'Genisys' tanked drastically at the box-office. © Paramount Pictures (4) James Cameron Is Back B**ches After directing T1 and then T2, Cameron took a little break from the franchise and maybe that's why the later instalments couldn't match up to the first two. James is back to produce the third part while Tim Miller who directed 'Deadpool' will be directing it. © Twitter (5) Skynet Is The Root Of All problems The computer system from T2, which was hell-bent on exterminating humanity altogether is back. Although it was destroyed by John Connor, Skynet is sending a liquid metal terminator from the future to terminate a hybrid cyborg human, in the present, in this one. © Paramount Pictures (6) The Story Has Shifted To Mexico Tim Miller directed 'Logan' as well, which was showcasing struggles around the American border quite expansively in the film. Now, the narrative for Tim's next film, 'Dark Fate' has shifted from LA to Mexico. While most of it shows trains and cars, the trailer begins with a road sign that says 'BIENVENIDOS A LA CUIDAD DE MEXICO'. Maybe Mexico has some answers and hence they all bundle up and go from California to Mexico to save some lives. © Paramount Pictures (7) The Plot Remains The Same Even though the new franchise has some brand new faces, the plotlines more or less the same. We have Mackenzie Davis, who plays a hybrid cyborg human and we have Natalie Reyes, whose character is named Dani Ramos, according to the trailer and she seems pretty human. Perhaps Reyes is the one who has some connection to Mexico in the film. Davis's character is definitely taking the role of Arnie's in T2, while she's trying to protect Reyes from the new blood-thirsty Terminator, played by Gabriel Luna. © Paramount Pictures Okay, this all seems too familiar. How? Here's what the official synopsis reads: "27 years after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a new, modified liquid metal Terminator (Gabriel Luna) is sent from the future by Skynet in order to terminate Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), a hybrid cyborg human (Mackenzie Davis), and her friends. Sarah Connor comes to their aid, as well as the original Terminator, for a fight for the future." Haven't we all seen, nay lived this before? Like the advanced cyborg is a threat to Skynet in years to come and it's here to protect a human from the Mexico border, even though we're not sure why she's from Mexico and what's the link, to begin with. Also, did you notice in the trailer, T-800 has aged? Isn't he a machine? Yes, we saw his character get destroyed in T2, but maybe there were more than one created back then? If he was sent back in time, maybe that can also explain why Arnie exists in the 2022 timeline too. But why has he aged? Could it be that Skynet's technology is merging with human's genetic design and creating androids that grow old, just like us? That could be an interesting possibility. We need to know a lot more than what's shown in this trailer and hopefully, they will release another trailer soon. © Paramount Pictures Although the story has jumped an entire timeline which includes Sarah Connor, John Connor and even Kyle Reese, the soldier in the human resistance, it still stitches the plots together somehow. Maybe, just maybe Dani Ramos has some sort of familial connection in Mexico, which in turn is responsible for the existence of Kyle Reese in the future, making it all a loop of how it actually began? Could be an interesting possibility © Paramount Pictures For now, we're going to sit back and wait for this fantastic sequel to come out after 27 years of watching the last one and pray it's just as good, or even better. 'Terminator: Dark Fate' releases on November 1, 2019.
  25. If you haven't grown up watching the mystical city of Agrabah and imagining what would it feel like to have a flying carpet as your ride and a genie as your best friend, then you have clearly been living on another planet. Guy Ritchie's much-hyped millennial adaptation of 'Aladdin' finally released today and the reviews and reactions are pouring in. Fans were obviously concerned if their favourite childhood tale will be over-glorified or if it would survive the hype, but looks like everyone is pretty elated with what they watched. #Aladdin !!!!!!!! 10/10 I can't say enough good things about it. Literally my favorite childhood movie recreated thus far!!! ðð — brea varnell (@breauhhh_8) May 24, 2019 I was so worried that they were going to ruin my favorite childhood movie but the live-action version was EVERYTHING!ðð #Aladdin — its24karat (@its24karat) May 24, 2019 I've never smiled as much in a movie in my life until I watched #Aladdin. It met my expectations and passed them. This is the best Disney live action they've done hands down. ð — Alan (@GustheBuz23) May 24, 2019 From Will Smith's acting to Naomi Campbells' screen presence and even the background score, fans are thrilled to re-live their childhood on the big screen. The Aladdin remake had effects from out of this world, the soundtrack was incredible, Naomi Scott's Speechless gave me goosebumps. Definitely a masterpiece of a remake, the best remake Disney has done thus far. Let's see if The Lion King can top this. #aladdin — Bader (@26bloushi04) May 24, 2019 Leaving #Aladdin and: • Will Smith makes a FANTASTIC Genie. • Naomi Scott is our new supreme. • Mena Massoud's million dollar smile can power all of Agrabah. — Julius (@jbridge4th) May 24, 2019 They actually find a way to shoehorn some white people into #Aladdin. I'm honestly kind of impressed. — Unnamed Prince of Dorne (@thelindsayellis) May 23, 2019 In case you still don't know if you should book your tickets or not, here's something that will convince you. Loved, loved #Aladdin #WillSmith is absolutely delicious and does honour Robin Williams legacy ð§‍âï¸ð — Cremildaâ° (@cremildatwit) May 24, 2019 Do yourself a favour and watch this over the weekend.
