Uber is launching prescription delivery in Dallas, Austin and Houston, Texas, the service told CNET on Thursday. The prescription option will be available within the Uber Eats app, connecting the ride-hailing service's users with independent, local pharmacies for delivery. 

Users in the participating cities will have access to on-demand prescription delivery, where they can transfer existing prescriptions and fulfill new ones. The service will allow customers to track their prescriptions from the pharmacy to their house.

"At Uber, we know that getting prescription delivery at the tap of a button is more important now than ever before, and we're working hard to make Uber Eats a destination for more household needs," Stephanie Ficaja, the head of Uber Eats, said in an emailed release.

Uber plans to expand its prescription delivery services to other states, it noted.

An iPhone 12 teardown released Thursday reveals all the parts of Apple's 5G device. While the video isn't in English, it compares the iPhone 12 to last year's iPhone 11. Its OLED display is much thinner than the iPhone 11 display, 9To5Mac noted. The video also shows the 2,815mAh battery capacity and MagSafe system.

The iPhone 12's new ceramic phone screen is tougher than glass, according to Apple, and it'll be the first iPhone with 5G.

Another teardown by iFixit Friday also examined the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro's insides, showing off the cameras, LIDAR sensor and a "surprising" lack of differences between the two phones.

The iPhone 12 is on sale as of Oct. 23 for $799, while the iPhone 12 Pro will cost you $999.

Check out the iPhone 12 teardown video below.

Spotify on Thursday launched a new feature called Listen Alike to let you see how your music tastes compare with celebrities. You can choose from celebs like Megan Thee Stallion, Addison Rae, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Conan O'Brien and more.

It's available to free and premium users, the music streaming service noted in a release.

After "making a connection" with a few celebs, I found my music tastes were closest to Addison Rae at 45%, compared with Alicia Keys at only 5%. Once you get your results, you can select See More to see which artists and songs you both listen to.

Updating to iOS 14 may remove Fortnite from your iPhone, Epic warns – CNET

Angela Lang/CNET

Fortnite developer Epic Games is warning iOS players that they could lose access to the popular battle royale game when they update to iOS 14. 

"Fortnite iOS players updating to iOS 14 may lose access to Fortnite," reads a tweet Wednesday from the Fortnite Status account. "If the message 'Temporarily Remove Apps to Install the Software Update?' is accepted, it may result in Fortnite being deleted. Fortnite cannot later be reinstalled due to Apple preventing users from doing so."

Apple gives people the option to temporarily remove apps to make room for sizable iOS updates. But, since Fortnite has been kicked out of the Apple App Store, people who already have the app installed may not be able to re-download the game if it's removed to make room for iOS 14.

In a follow up tweet, the Fortnite account suggested that people should press Cancel first, then go to SettingsGeneral > iPhone Storage to free up space.

Apple is locked in a public legal battle with Fortnite developer Epic Games. Fortnite was kicked off both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store in August after Epic attempted to bypass the 30% fee Apple and Google charge developers. Epic countered by filing lawsuits against both companies.

The iOS 14 update was released on Sept. 16 and included several new features for iPhone users, including its new Smart Stack widget tool and the ability to personalize your iPhone's home screen.

Google Drive will start automatically deleting your trash files after 30 days, Google said this week. The new trash policy will begin Oct. 13 and will delete items left in the folder after 30 days.

If users have items that have been in their trash folder for months, those files will remain there until 30 days after the new policy starts. Gmail and other G Suite services already follow this policy.

Google Drive has been significant for those working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the ability to quickly share documents and collaborate with colleagues on projects. Google Docs also has a feature that keeps you from losing your work.
