World’s first flying car to go on sale


A Chinese company called Terrafugia is preparing to unleash a vehicle called The Transition which can turn from an automobile into an aircraft in just a minute. It will be able to travel at just 100 miles per hour, making it slower than the world’s most sluggish jet, the Soviet PZL M-15 Belphegor which was built to be used on massive state-owned farms. The most striking aspect of the Transition is its folding wings, which extend to allow flight and can be retracted when driving on roads. It is fitted with a parachute system as well as a ‘boost’ mode to give a brief burst of extra power while flying. The pre-sales will begin in October and it would cost somewhere in between $300k and $400k. This means it could have a price of more than £300,000 in the UK.

Apple’s silence during iPhone charge-gate’s complaints

Apple has remained silent during the complaints that its new iPhone XS and XS Max smartphones fail to charge consistently when plugged in. Several users have reported that their device refuses to charge if it has been idle for a while. Most of the phones would charge only when the display was activated to wake up the device. One of them would not charge at all. However, Apple has not yet commented on the issue. The complaints about the XS and XS Max failing to charge have also been posted on Apple's discussion forum on its website. Also complaints can also be found on social media, where some people have described being unable to charge their phone at all once the battery is exhausted. Some users have speculated that the problem is related to a recent change in Apple's security settings.
