2020 Alpina XB7/XD7 spied

Photographers have snapped a BMW X7-based prototype believed to be the upcoming Alpina XB7 or XD7, ahead of a potential debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September. It's no secret the tuning firm is working on a new model based on BMW's three-row SUV – Alpina's boss confirmed it last month – and this development vehicle is our clearest look yet.

Apple CarPlay (iOS 13) review 2019: New design, dark mode, better maps and more

At some point in September, Apple users will have their iPhones prompt them to install the latest update of its operating system, iOS 13. There's a long list of reasons iOS 13 is worth your time, but we think you’ll look forward to the CarPlay update the most. The update will be free, and should give CarPlay users a new-car feeling once connected.

2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio facelift spied inside and out

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio update has been spied again, this time during hot weather testing in southern Europe. Despite the presence of camouflage tape all over the front and rear bumpers, it's genuinely difficult to discern many changes between these prototypes and the vehicles available in showrooms today.
