Apple just introduced the iPhone XR, a new lower-cost iPhone with a 6.1-inch screen — giving it more screen real estate than the iPhone 8 Plus, which has a 5.5-inch screen.

The new device is one of three new iPhones Apple introduced Wednesday at its annual event in Cupertino, California — Apple also unveiled the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, along with the Apple Watch Series 4.

What separates the iPhone XR from the other devices is its LCD display, with a lower resolution than the just-announced iPhone XS and XS Max, which results in a lower price point. It also has a single-lens camera and is made from aluminium.

The iPhone XR will also come in six colours: black, white, red, yellow, coral, and blue.

The European Union on Saturday called for de-escalation in East Jerusalem after clashes between Palestinians and Israeli forces left dozens injured.

The unrest in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem started last week over Israeli authorities’ plans to resettle 28 Palestinian families from the area. On Friday, violence also erupted near the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Damascus Gate. The Red Crescent said that 205 Palestinians had been injured in the unrest. Israeli police also reported injuries among officers.

“The European Union calls on the authorities to act urgently to de-escalate the current tensions in Jerusalem. Acts of incitement around the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif must be avoided and the status quo has to be respected,” the bloc said in a statement.

The bloc went on to urge political, religious and community leaders on all sides to “show restraint and responsibility and make every effort to calm down this volatile situation.”

“The situation with regard to the evictions of Palestinian families in Sheikh Jarrah and other areas of East Jerusalem is also of serious concern. Such actions are illegal under international humanitarian law and only serve to fuel tensions on the ground,” the bloc stated.

For decades, Palestinians have been seeking recognition of their independent state on the Israeli-occupied territories in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip. Israel refuses to recognize Palestine as an independent political and diplomatic entity and continues to build settlements in the occupied areas, despite objections from the United Nations.

Twitter “Tip Jar” allows you to Send Money to Favourite Accounts

Published

After the rollout of Spaces to everyone with more than 600 followers, Twitter is from today publicly testing “Tip Jar” which allows certain users to setup and receive payments.

The test is currently for a select few including creators, journalists, experts and non-profits. Twitter suggests a full rollout may happen in the coming future. The good thing is that the select users this is open to are on both iOS and Android operating systems. This time it isn’t an exclusive Android or exclusive iOS feature.

Those chosen to be part of this test can choose whether to turn on the feature, or not. Once the feature is toggled on, the account owners then select which payment mode they are open to accepting.

The Payment modes included are PayPal, Venmo, Cash App, Patreon, and Bandcamp. Perhaps in future we will get to see M-Pesa for a market like Kenya. For now, the best option for this market is PayPal. This is because Paypal allows you to withdraw directly to your M-Pesa account.

Once a user sets up the payment mode, a “Tip Jar” button will appear next to the Follow Button on their Profile. If interested in sending them money, you will hit that button, and then get redirected to whichever payment option they’ve set. Twitter takes no cut from this.

Users on Android will also be able to send money to hosts when attending a Space.

In future we may see Twitter bring the button directly under tweets so that one can easily tip someone for a really good tweet. This is unlike now when you have to visit the persons profile and then be redirected to whichever payment platform they’ve chosen.
