iPhone 7 Rumors Leaks Fake

New video goes behind the scenes of an iPhone 7 leak for the first time ever

New video goes behind the scenes of an iPhone 7 leak for the first time ever

By on August 25, 2016 at 10:27 AM.

As has been the case in previous years, there’s an increasing number of image and video leaks originating from Asia ahead of the new iPhone launch. We’ve seen the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in a variety of pictures and hands-on videos, although most of them were not functional devices. Instead, we only got to see dummy units. All of them are similar when it comes to overall design, and we’re used to seeing iPhone 7 units pop up in all sorts of colors, including traditional ones and brand new options.

Now, anew video goes behind the scenes and gives us an inside look at the facilities that make these iPhone 7 mockups.

New report leaks details on Apple’s upcoming Snapchat rival and other new apps

New report leaks details on Apple’s upcoming Snapchat rival and other new apps

Smartphone social apps including Facebook, Snapchat and instant messengers have seen tremendous growth in recent years thanks to the iPhone and Android. Apple revolutionized the smartphone business with the iPhone and the App Store, creating a massive mobile software business. But now that iPhone sales are slowing, Apple is looking to monetize its services by launching compelling apps and services for its customers.

According to a new report, Apple plans to go after top smartphone apps with alternatives of its own. The first one will debut this year in iOS 10, while next year’s iPhones might come alongside exciting new camera and social apps that will compete against Facebook, Snapchat and other services.

Apple Siri

How Apple stopped the Siri disaster, and quietly became great at AI

How Apple stopped the Siri disaster, and quietly became great at AI

When Siri was originally released on the iPhone 4S back in 2011, the reviews were somewhat lukewarm. On the positive side, having an intelligent assistant baked into a massively popular smartphone was a huge leap forward. On the other hand, Siri didn’t always perform as advertised.

Even more problematic was that Siri’s feature set was purposefully stunted by Apple. In fact, the Siri Apple released in 2011 wasn’t even as capable as the Siri app that Siri’s original developers had previously released on the App Store. What’s more, it eventually became apparent that rival AI systems from the likes of Google were far superior than what Apple was bringing to the table.

Macbook Pro 2016

The upcoming Macbooks will be fast in ways you probably weren’t expecting

The upcoming Macbooks will be fast in ways you probably weren’t expecting

Apple’s upcoming Macbooks need to be a major refresh to the lineup, since the laptop selection is looking a little old lately. We’re expecting Touch ID and a new OLED button panel to come to the 2016 Macbook Pro, but code hidden in the latest version of macOS Sierra hints at one additional feature.

According to code uncovered by 9to5Mac, macOS Sierra will support USB 3.1 Gen 2, better known as the upgraded version of USB-C. Apple introduced USB-C ports into its lineup with the 2015 Retina Macbook, and it’s a safer bet than ever that those ports will be coming to the new Macbook Pro.

How I get a new iPhone for $125 a year

A new iPhone is rapidly approaching, which means it’s time for my yearly tradition of flogging my old iPhone to strangers on the internet. Upgrading phones every year might be a ridiculous luxury, but if you’re smart about how you do it, upgrading once a year is actually less expensive than upgrading whenever your old device dies.

Another big leak says iPhone 7 will fix iPhone users’ biggest problem

Another big leak says iPhone 7 will fix iPhone users’ biggest problem

By on August 24, 2016 at 2:51 PM.

If sentiment around the internet is any indication, iPhone owners aren’t very happy with the idea that Apple is planning to ditch the standard headphone jack on its upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Nothing has been confirmed at this point, but everything we’ve seen and heard so far suggests that Apple’s new iPhone models will only have a Lightning port on the bottom, so users who want to use a wired headset will either need to purchase a new one or use an adapter.

Yes, Apple is creating a new problem for iPhone users, though if history has taught us anything the outrage will subside fairly quickly after the new iPhones are released. But potential iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users will be happy to learn that Apple will also likely solve a problem with its new iPhone models, and it’s a big one. More →
