5 Things to Know With Your Morning Coffee — Thursday, November 18, 2021

Every day we wake up, drink a cup of coffee, and get ready for work. Following are a handful of stories from around the tech world condensed to fit into one single cup of coffee. These are the things you need to know before you step foot out of your door (or in front of a webcam) and into the real world this morning.

So sit back, grab a cup, and start your morning off right with a few “Quick Bytes” from Innovation & Tech Today.

Famed L.A. Staples Center to be Renamed Arena

Longtime home of the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, the famed Staples Center, is getting a new name: Arena.

The new logo is to debut on Dec. 25, 2021, when the Lakes host the Brooklyn Nets.

Another 11% are trading Teslas, with an additional 40% already owning electric vehicles.

Apple to Allow People to Repair Their Own Phones

In a surprise move Thursday, Apple announced Self Service Repair, a new online shop where you can purchase genuine Apple replacement parts to repair your own iPhone. Apple has long-resisted individuals fighting for the right-to-repair, insisted that as intellectual property, they should not be forced to just open the phone. But as more and more states continue passing RTR laws, Apple has apparently made the move. The service will include parts, tools, and manuals. But before you get too excited, I should remind you Apple is also setting the prices.
