iPhone 7 sales may be lower than the iPhone 6s, analyst claims

Right out of the gate, the iPhone 7 appeared to be just what Apple needed to make analysts forget about disappointing iPhone sales. The iPhone 6s, if you recall, marked the first time that year-over-year iPhone sales experienced a decline. In turn, many analysts and tech pundits were quick to declare that we had finally reached Peak iPhone and that Apple’s best days were behind it.

The iPhone 7, however, appeared ready to change that. Early on, iPhone 7 pre-orders were off the charts. T-Mobile, for example, remarked that iPhone 7 pre-orders were 4 times higher than what the company saw with the iPhone 6. Sprint, meanwhile, said that iPhone 7 pre-orders were 375% higher compared to the previous year.

Bill Maher slams Apple for releasing new iPhone models every year

During the most recent episode of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the outspoken talk show host criticized Apple for the most unusual of reasons. All but calling Apple’s annual iPhone upgrades incremental, Maher said that if Apple truly wanted to do something innovative, they’d refrain from releasing a new iPhone every year.

iPhone 7 Headphone Jack Drill Hack

Please don’t drill a headphone jack into your iPhone 7

By about 8 hours ago.

Please don’t drill a headphone jack into your iPhone 7

I can’t believe I actually have to write this, but here we are. Absolutely don’t try to fix the iPhone 7’s headphone jack problem by drilling a hole where the port used to be. Apple did not leave the internal components in there. You won’t be able to use your 3.5mm headphone jack with a custom made hole.

Instead, you’re going to ruin a very expensive handset. Honestly, I refuse to believe anyone would actually believe Apple would do such a thing in the first place.

Apple Car Rumors

Forget racing, this is what’s really driving Apple’s interest in McLaren

By on September 25, 2016 at 9:00 AM.

Forget racing, this is what’s really driving Apple’s interest in McLaren

With Apple still reportedly interested in entering the automotive space, a wild new rumor emerged earlier this week claiming that Apple was interested in acquiring McLaren Technology Group. The McLaren Technology Group, for those unfamiliar, widely known and respected for releasing insanely fast supercars and also for its Formula One racing team

While initial reports claimed that Apple was interested in acquiring the entirety of McLaren’s business, a McLaren spokesperson quickly reached out to various media outlets and denied that any full takeover talks had taken place.

Still, just because Apple may not be interested in a full takeover doesn’t mean that Apple doesn’t have its eye on certain aspects of McLaren’s business. To this point, Mike Butcher of TechCrunch posits an interesting theory, namely that Apple doesn’t want anything to do with McLaren Racing or Formula 1 but rather has its eye McLaren Applied Technologies.

iPhone 7 Water Resistance

The iPhone 7 is water resistant, but can it survive big wave surfing?

The iPhone 7 is water resistant, but can it survive big wave surfing?

With the removal of the headphone jack (oh the horror!), Apple’s iPhone 7 is more water resistant than ever before. Sporting an IP67 rating, the iPhone 7 can survive submersion in water at a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes straight. That’s all well and good, but it doesn’t really tell us too much about how the iPhone holds up to water in real world conditions. After all, it’s not like anyone ever decides to just drop their phone in a meter of water and let it chill there for a half hour.

So while we’ve seen iPhone 7s being put to the test by being dropped in bowls of water, it’s time to really see what the iPhone 7 is capable of withstanding. In an effort to really put the iPhone 7 to the test, the folks over at SquareTrade Labs came up with an fun little challenge and gave big wave surfer Kai Lenny an iPhone 7 to see how the device stood up to big crashing waves in a salt water environment.

iPhone 7 Plus photo samples: The ‘DSLR’ iPhone in action

The iPhone 7 is the biggest thing in tech happening this month. Of the two new iPhones, the iPhone 7 Plus is the one that stands out thanks to its dual-lens iSight Duo camera system that packs both a wide-angle and a telephoto lens. Extra RAM, and Apple’s custom image signal processor complete the camera package of the phablet, which might be the first iPhone to offer DSLR-like effects.

iPhone 7 Plus Camera

Latest batch of iPhone 7 Plus photo samples are truly remarkable

Latest batch of iPhone 7 Plus photo samples are truly remarkable

Though Apple improving upon its camera technology with each successive iPhone model is nothing new, what Apple achieved with the iPhone 7 Plus represents the company’s biggest leap forward yet. Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus is particularly impressive and capable because it comes equipped with an advanced dual camera system, with one sensor a wide-angle lens and the other a telephoto lens.

Admittedly, dual camera systems aren’t entirely new, but Apple’s implementation is nonetheless impressive. Aside from being able to take incredible portrait photographs utilizing the bokeh effect, but even regular photos are designed to take advantage of the device’s dual-camera setup. As referenced in our iPhone 7 review earlier today, the iPhone 7 Plus camera “actually captures two images, one with the 28mm lens and one with the 56mm lens.” Following that, Apple’s software takes data from both images and then fuses them together to create one unified photograph.

iPhone 7 vs iPhone 6S

The iPhone 7 makes every other iPhone look stupidly slow

The iPhone 7 makes every other iPhone look stupidly slow

We’re coming up on 10 years of iPhones now, which means there’s a lot of old models out there to play with. Sure, we’ve seen how the iPhone 7 measures up against the Galaxy S7 and LG G5, but how does it compare to the older generations?

YouTube channel EverythingApplePro put every model of iPhone from history up against the other in a series of tests, mostly to showcase the differences in hardware from year to year. It also serves as an excellent reminder that sometimes, upgrading to the latest version of iOS on an older phone is not a great idea.

This is when you might find the iPhone 7 you want in Apple stores

The iPhone 7 is mostly sold out, and it might be tough to find the model you want in an Apple store or anywhere else right now. But things are improving, and you should be able to play with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in all color and storage options in the coming weeks.

October 8th is the date you should circle in your virtual calendar, as it appears that an international logjam is partly to blame for Apple’s current iPhone supply problems. But by October, it should be plain sailing for Apple’s iPhones.
