For many, especially those who find themselves working from home or on the road, the smartphone is used as an extension of the personal computer. Information created or consumed on the smartphone is shared with the PC and vice versa. This interactive connectivity has many uses and generally increases productivity—it’s practically second nature for much of the modern workforce.

In Microsoft Windows 10 the connection between the smartphone and the computer can be used to share pages displayed on your favorite web browser. The webpages are shared between devices using a tool called Continue on PC. This tool can be accessed by connecting your smartphone to your PC and then installing the Microsoft Phone Companion app.

2021 Honda Odyssey first drive review: Spit shine

Honda’s Odyssey is probably the best minivan you can buy. Versatile and thoughtfully designed, refined and comfortable, what more could you ask for in a family transporter? Aside from an integrated smoothie maker or a self-emptying diaper pail (preferably not located next to each other), probably not much. But that hasn’t stopped Honda from further refining this segment-leading minivan, giving it a good, ol’ spit shine for 2021.

One look at this machine’s body and you may be hard-pressed to tell it apart from the 2020 model — the new Odyssey’s visual changes are that minor. Its face was restyled, gaining a classier-looking grille that’s cleaner than before. Flanking that updated opening are new LED headlamps, which are standard across the range. Similarly, the front bumper and fog light surrounds were reworked, and 19-inch wheels in varying styles come standard on high-end models. ‘Round back, this van’s hatch has been gussied up by a spear of black trim, and overall, the 2021 Odyssey breaks no new ground, but its design is handsome and less robotic.

iOS 14 compatible devices list: Will it work on iPhone 7, iPhone XR or XS?

Will your iPhone be compatible with iOS 14?

This story is part of WWDC 2020. All the latest coverage from Apple’s WWDC annual developers conference.

Apple announced a slew of new features coming to iOS 14 this fall at its Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this summer. The latest updates show a new app organizer and home screen widgets for the first time on iPhone ($699 at Apple), as well as a more compact Siri interface. The new iOS 14 update will also let you play a video thumbnail (Picture in Picture) while doing other things and add face coverings to your Memoji.  

As with any new iOS update, you may be wondering whether you’ll still be able to use your old iPhone or if it’s time to upgrade to a newer version. When Apple revealed iOS 13 last year, it announced the update would work with iPhone 6S, iPhone SE (2016) and newer models. This year is the same — Apple isn’t excluding the iPhone 6S or its older version of the iPhone SE.
