Seems like Qualcomm’s antennas are too big for Apple and that’s why the iPhone maker is designing the antenna module that will be used in its 5G iPhones.

Amazon is reportedly working on a full-fledged cloud gaming platform under the code name Project Tempo, similar to Google’s Stadia and Nvidia’s GeForce Now.

The retail giant has been working on a game called Crucible ever since 2014 and along with that game, the company is going to bring another game called New World, which will be a multiplayer online game and will fit perfectly in the multiplayer game genre, reports The New York Times.

“The big picture is about trying to take the best of Amazon and bringing it to games,” the report quoted Mike Frazzini, Amazon’s vice president for game services and studios as saying.

“We have been working for a while, but it takes a long time to make games, and we’re bringing a lot of Amazon practices to making games,” Frazzini added.
