Tech Hangover: A two-camera iPad Pro is coming in 2020
Does anyone actually care about AR?
We get it, you have a life. There’s no way you can read all of the day’s news in one single shot, let alone visit every web page, which is why we’re here to help. Well, sort of.
There’s a ton of tech news we weren’t able to cover throughout the day (hey, give us a break, we’re a small independent outfit), so to help you stay up to speed with everything we didn’t get to, we rounded up some of the biggest stories, which should help you keep up to date. Hence the tech hangover.
Here’s some tech news you probably missed out on today (and when we say you, we mean us, but also…you).

Google Photos for Android rolls out ‘Info’ menu redesign with new carousel
Google is updating how the Photos app functions and I’m sure Joe is very happy about this.
