It was raining Alexa devices at Amazon’s annual hardware event in the US, where the tech giant announced a slew of products that work with its smart voice assistant Alexa.

From launching its new truly wireless Earbuds, to rolling-in famous Hollywood movie star Samuel L Jackson to lend his voice to Alexa, Amazon is all set to offer a completely new portfolio of smart devices to its customers.

The biggest highlight of the event, however, were Amazon’s answer to Apple’s AirPods - the Echo Buds. These have been priced at $129 (Rs 9,000 approx) and offer up to five hours of battery life.

According to IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, spectrum auctions will be held in this calendar year and the trials for 5G services with radio waves allotted by the ministry will commence in the next 100 days.

iPhone users got the iOS 13 update last week, and are likely to get the 13.1 version sometime this week, which is going to fix minor bug issues.

But you should probably know that Facebook-owned apps like Instagram and WhatsApp are yet to support the native dark mode feature on iOS 13.
