For a smartphone technically (pre-) announced all the way back in early August, the Pixel 6 (and its Pro sibling) has been the subject of quite a few juicy leaks over the last couple of weeks, leaving almost no major question unanswered in advance of its full October 19 launch.
Google is finally coming after Apple… sort of
If you’re the least bit familiar with Apple’s industry-leading software support policies, you may have been wondering why Google stayed so far behind its arch-rival for so long.
