ProClip Roundup Season Finale
Hey everybody! We’re back with the season finale of the ProClip Roundup! We’re taking a short break, but we’ll be back June 22nd with all of the mobile and car tech news that matters. Let’s dive right into the stories that caught my eye this week.
A Need for Speed
Jaguar has introduced an electric SUV that could become that fastest production-car in the world. A spokesperson suggested that they could make the vehicle accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 1.8 seconds. The automakers are worried that the vehicle could be too powerful, and that the SUV would be limited until drivers have passed a special training course to prove they can handle the vehicle.
Farewell, Essential Phone
Essential has announced the cancellation of its next smartphone. Last year, they released a high-end modular phone that was considered a massive failure. As a result of that failure, the startup is even considering selling itself. Essential is also rumored to be working on smart speakers similar to the Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
Rhode Island Goes Hands-Free
If you’re reading this in Rhode Island, then a brand-new hands-free driving law went into effect today, June 1, 2018. This law means that drivers must have a hands-free device to make and receive calls while driving, or they may face a fine. Make the move to hands-free with a custom ProClip mounting solution for your car and phone.
Another Tesla Autopilot Crash
Another Tesla Model S in autopilot crashed into a parked police car. Luckily, the police officer was not in the vehicle, and the driver only sustained minor injuries. Remember, if you’re driving a Tesla Model S to keep your hands on your wheel and pay attention to the road!
Apple Hosts WWDC18
Apple is hosting its annual Worldwide Developers Conference June 4-8, 2018. Experts expect to see updates across Apple’s operating systems, including iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS. Rumors have also included large updates to Siri and hardware updates for Apple computers and iPads. If you’re hoping for updates to iPhones, you’ll likely have to wait until the traditional fall announcement. We’ll recap all of the news from WWDC18 when we return for season two of the ProClip Roundup.
That’s all the time we have for this week, we’ll see you when we return on June 22nd. If you have any ideas or suggestions for what you’d like to see in season two, let us know in the comments!
