iPhone 13 could drop as early as September and it may not have buttons

iPhone 13 could drop as early as September and it may not have buttons
Aug 29 2021 Share

In the midst of leaks and rumours surrounding the upcoming iPhone 13, sources have reported that Apple’s latest phone could come out as early as mid-September.

Beyond the many rumoured upgrades and design switch-ups, the most controversial of changes is the possibility that the latest iPhone could be buttonless, with the company reportedly patenting alternative input devices such as “invisible backlit holes” which do not appear when not in use.

The bigger question is whether or not this massive change will see the light of day with the release of the iPhone 13 or any future models to follow.

Malta budget to be presented on October 11

Aug 29 2021 Share

In an interview on the Labour Party’s radio station ONE Radio, Prime Minister Robert Abela revealed that this year’s budget event will take place on October 11.

The Prime Minister discussed a number of national principles on which the budget will be built and reiterated the fact that this budget will be tax-free.

Reports emerged earlier today that a November general election is being advised, a considerably strategic move following what many have been calling a ‘feel-good’ budget – has the country gone into election mode?

Abela rises & Grech drops slightly in trust ratings despite PN gaining momentum

Aug 29 2021 Share

A survey commissioned by the Times of Malta has revealed that Robert Abela’s trust rating has risen over the past month while Opposition Leader Bernard Grech’s rating has dropped by 1.1 percent.

This comes in light of the fact that the Nationalist Party as a whole increased its trust rating by 3.1 per cent between July and August 2021, with the PN managing to attract a new amount of voters.

With regards to leadership, PM Robert Abela managed to lock in 48.5 per cent of respondents with Bernard Grech trailing with 15.83 per cent, 19 per cent voting for neither of the two and 16.67 per cent refusing to participate in the survey.

November election being advised, sources reveal

November election being advised, sources reveal
Aug 29 2021 Share

While an official decision is yet to be taken, Prime Minister Robert Abela is being advised to call for a general election in November, sources close to the government have revealed.

A mid-to-late November election would follow the October budget, which Prime Minister Robert Abela had stated will be tax-less, a strong move going into a general election. October will also welcome the completion of Malta’s €55 million Central Link project, one of the largest infrastructural projects in recent history.

The Prime Minister had shut down the idea of an early election in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and while some have welcomed the idea of an election riding on the ‘feel-good factor’ of the October budget, others remain sceptical on such an event in the midst of Malta’s situation following the FATF grey-listing.

Despite recent polls not being as favourable, the Nationalist Party’s administrative shake-up may also be an indication of a predicted election, with former Lovin Malta CEO Christian Peregin being appointed as chief strategist and 26-year-old Michael R. Piccinino succeeding Francis Zammit Dimech as the party’s general secretary.
