Changing Your Pointer Size and Color

The Windows 10 May update added a variety of handy features to the operating system. Another small, but fun feature is the cursor and pointer. For decades, a little white arrow was the default (and only) way to visually click.

Now the new options include size and color, allowing users to choose for their particular needs or wants.

Here’s how you can change this feature:

  • Start Menu > Settings
  • Ease of Access > Cursor and Pointer

From there, you can change your pointer size (with the toggle) and color. There are suggested colors or you can pick your own with the customized option.You can also make the cursor easier when you type by upping the thickness.

Fingerprint Sensor is Making a Comeback on Apple

Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at Apple shared a feature that will be included in iPhones in 2021: fingerprint sensor. This feature definitely isn’t new on Apple devices, but with Face ID implemented, the sensor wasn’t needed. However, coming up in the following years, iPhones will have both features incorporated.

According to MacRumors, “Kuo believes that GIS and Qualcomm will benefit from iPhone’s adoption of FOD, with the former providing the “large-area sensing ultrasonic” technology and the latter supplying the ultrasonic FOD module and lamination. Kuo also argues that the likelihood of FOD in iPhones will increase if Apple Watch supports a biometric function in the future.”

Kuo and other analysts think that fingerprint sensors will drastically progress with technology within a year and a half time frame, so including FOD (fingerprint on display) will be a huge advantage to Apple devices. Will involving both FOD and Face Recognition increase the price of the Apple products? It’s unclear. However, the reasoning behind adding both features to future iPhones is to bring additional security and accessibility to suit users’ needs.
