This week in tech we saw some tempting hardware announcements, including that of the next-generation Xbox Series X console and OPPO's AR glasses.
Let's take a look at the biggest stuff that happened in tech this past week.
The biggest news of the week was undoubtedly the unveiling of Xbox Series X console with an improved new controller, 8k support, hardware-accelerated ray tracing, variable refresh rate, auto-latency mode, and solid-state storage.
Then, Snapchat confirmed the testing of a deepfake-like tool that would let you morph your face into GIFs/videos and OnePlus released an update bringing Netflix on the OnePlus TV.
Apple released iOS 13 with major bug fixes and new parental controls but that release introduced another bug that allowed kids to bypass parental restrictions and talk to strangers.
Droom, the popular marketplace for used vehicles, also dealt with a security issue that risked critical personal and financial information of millions of its users. It remains unclear if the glitch was ever exploited.
While Apple struggled with bugs, Google spent the week upgrading its key hardware, software products.
First, the company announced the first 'feature drop' bringing new capabilities into new and old Pixel phones.
Then, it introduced the ability to directly attach emails in Gmail, an interpreter mode for Google Assistant on smartphones, and verified SMS and spam-protection features for Android Messages.
