FuboTV is raising its prices.
The live-TV streaming service is bumping up the cost of its base subscription package by $10, to $54.99, the company said Thursday. New customers will get a $10 discount for the first month. The package includes more than 90 channels.
The company is also raising prices on its Fubo Extra package, which includes more than 110 channels, from $49.99 to $59.99 a month.
In a statement, FuboTV said the price change comes with the addition of several channels over the last year, including AMC, Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS and TNT. The service will soon add channels such as BET, CMT, Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon.
“We are committed to continuing to deliver the best of live TV to our customers, as well as an exceptional user experience with 4K streams and premium features,” the company said in the statement.
Other TV streaming services have also increased their prices lately. Earlier this month, AT&T raised DirecTV Now prices by $10 a month and added HBO. And last year, YouTube TV went from $35 to $40 a month, with the addition of channels including CNN, TNT, TBS and Cartoon Network.
iOS 14.1, iPadOS 14.1 Released With 10-Bit HDR Video Playback, Edit Support for Earlier Models
Apple has released iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1 as the latest improvement-focussed updates for compatible iPhone and iPad models.

Apple has released iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1 as the latest improvement-focussed updates for compatible iPhone and iPad models. The new updates come less than a month after the company rolled out iOS 14.0.1 and iPadOS 14.0.1 as the early bug fix releases post the debut of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. Alongside various improvements and bug fixes, the iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1 bring 10-bit HDR video playback and edit support to existing iPhone and iPad models.What’s new in iOS 14.1As per the changelog provided by Apple, iOS 14.1 adds support for 10-bit HDR video playback and editing in the Photos app for the iPhone 8 and later models. It makes sense as the iPhone 12 series brings 10-bit HDR video recording and while enabling the same experience isn’t possible probably due to hardware limitations, existing iPhone users will now be able to watch and edit videos they receive from the latest iPhone models.Aside from the newly added 10-bit HDR video support, the update fixes the problem that was causing some widgets, folders, and icons to appear in reduced size on the home screen. It also addresses the issue where dragging widgets on the home screen could remove apps from folders. The update also fixes the issues where emails in Mail were sent from an incorrect alias and incoming calls were prevented from displaying region information.iOS 14.1 brings a list of improvements and bug fixes The iOS 14.1 update also brings a fix for the issue that was resulting in the lock screen emerging call button to overlap with the text input box when zoomed display mode was enabled alongside an alphanumeric passcode. Similarly, the update fixes the Calculator app for the issue that could prevent zeros from appearing on the screen. There is also a fix for the issue that was restricting users to download or add songs to their library while viewing an album or playlist.Apple has also resolved an issue that was temporarily reducing streaming video resolution at the start of playback. The update also addresses an issue in the Files app that could cause some MDM-managed cloud service providers to incorrectly display content as unavailable. Additionally, there are improvements towards Ubiquiti wireless access points’ compatibility.The latest iOS update also fixes a couple of problems related to the Apple Watch. In one case, some users were prevented from setting up a family member’s Apple Watch, while in the other one, the Apple Watch case material was displayed incorrectly in the Apple Watch app.That said, the iOS 14.1 update doesn’t address the known battery drain issue that was introduced with the release of iOS 14. Apple even acknowledged the issue publicly and provided a workaround — which was to restore your iPhone after completely erasing all its content stored.The release of iOS 14.1 comes just ahead of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro sale that is beginning in the US and other key markets from Friday, October 23. The new iPhone models are debuting in India on October 30, though. Apple is likely to ship the iPhone 12 series with iOS 14.1 out-of-the-box.What’s new in iPadOS 14.1Just like the iOS 14.1 update, iPadOS 14.1 also includes fixes for the issues related to widgets, folders, and icons on the home screen, Mail app, music library, video playback, and the Files app. It also brings 10-bit HDR video playback and editing support to the Photos app for the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd generation) and later, iPad Pro 11‑inch, iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Air (3rd generation) and later, and the iPad mini (5th generation). Moreover, the iPadOS 14.1 update comes on the heels of the iPad Air (2020) availability that is set alongside the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro sale. The new iPad Air is expected to ship running the latest iPadOS update.How to download iOS 14.1, iPadOS 14.1To download iOS 14.1 on your iPhone or iPod touch or iPadOS 14.1 on your iPad, make sure the device has a sufficient amount of battery and is connected to a Wi-Fi network. You can then begin the download process by going to Settings > General > Software Update. Moreover, the updates are available for all iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad models that are compatible with iOS 14 or iPadOS 14.Are iPhone 12 mini, HomePod mini the Perfect Apple Devices for India?

iPhone 12 Pro Max camera: Why this pro photographer is super excited – CNET
Apple As a professional photographer, I’ve been blown away by how the iPhone 11 Pro has been able to replace my DSLR on photo shoots. But Apple just introduced the iPhone 12 lineup which includes the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the camera tech is even…
As a professional photographer, I’ve been blown away by how the iPhone 11 Pro has been able to replace my DSLR on photo shoots. But Apple just introduced the iPhone 12 lineup which includes the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the camera tech is even better this time around. (Here’s everything Apple announced at the October event.) The iPhone 12 Pro Max’s camera updates especially, both in hardware and software, have already got me buzzing about going shooting with this thing. Here’s why I’m so excited.More zoom with the 2.5x telephoto lensI love the telephoto zoom lens on the iPhone 11 Pro, but at only 2x, it doesn’t always provide quite the level of zoom I want. I often find myself digitally zooming in further to get the exact composition I want. The iPhone 12 Pro Max takes that further, to 2.5x, which might not seem like a huge upgrade, but I think will be noticeable for many shots.

Would I have liked 5x or 10x? Sure, I love the bigger zoom on phones like the Galaxy S20 Ultra, but as they’re so big, I don’t use them quite as often as the 2x on the iPhone . Maybe 3x would have been a good compromise, but I still think that the 12 Pro Max’s upgrade will make a big difference to many of my photos. Bigger image sensorApple already manages to squeeze incredible image quality out of tiny phone camera sensors, and its great software allows for the awesome night mode shots we’ve already seen. But a 47% larger sensor captures more light, allowing for brighter shots with less noise and better dynamic range. It’s why my professional camera (a Canon 5D Mark IV) uses a much bigger full-frame sensor. I’m very keen to see just what a difference this larger sensor might mean not just for my nighttime photos, but for capturing fine details in landscapes, or up close when taking macro images of flowers. A bigger sensor paired with Apple’s image processing software is likely to be a potent combination. The iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max have three rear cameras.
Improved, faster lens for better night modeIt’s not just the sensor that can capture more light — the lens itself can let in more light than before thanks to its wider, f/1.6 aperture. That number basically means that the hole that light passes through is bigger than before, allowing more light to pass through in the same amount of time. Together with the larger sensor, Apple reckons the 12 Pro Max has seen an 87% improvement in low light imagery from the iPhone 11, which itself was already one of the best at low-light photos.
The redesigned lens isn’t just about letting more light in, though. Apple also explained in its launch presentation that it’s improved the optical clarity of the lens, reducing the amount of image distortion, particularly at the edges of the image on the widest lens. All of which means better-looking, more professional images. Lovely stuff.Apple ProRaw Many of my best images I’ve taken with the iPhone have been taken in raw, using third-party apps. Raw images don’t save data like color information, or sharpening, allowing for greater control when editing in mobile apps like Adobe Lightroom Mobile. However, the downside of shooting raw in third-party apps is that you don’t get to take advantage of the image processing Apple uses in its own camera app. The Deep Fusion processing for amazing HDR, for example, is only something you’d get when shooting with the iPhone’s native camera.
To appeal more to pros, Apple has introduced Apple ProRaw in its camera app, which takes advantage of many of its image processing capabilities, but doesn’t permanently bake in data like white balance, allowing you to still make those changes in post production. Apple says it’s the best of both worlds, and on paper, I’m tempted to agree, but I’ll have to reserve my final judgment until I can not only shoot images in this new format, but also edit the images as well. It’s worth noting that Google has done much the same already with its Pixel phones”http://www.cnet.com/”computational raw” feature, which CNET senior editor Stephen Shankland calls “tremendous.” How the two compare remain to be seen.HDR video and improved stabilization It’s not just stills that have seen an improvement. The phone also now offers HDR with Dolby Vision at up to 60fps, which Apple says is the first time this has been offered on any device. In theory, this would help control bright highlights and help lift dark shadows, in just the same way that HDR does when you take still images.The optical image stabilization has also been improved as well by moving the image sensor to counter movements and vibrations, rather than moving the heavier lens, as was the case before. How much difference this makes remains to be seen when I can take the phones out for a proper test, but with better image quality and better stabilization, I’m really excited about the sorts of videos I’ll be able to produce with this phone.
