iPhone 7 Plus Rumors Dual Lens Camera

Foxconn employee says iPhone 7’s most anticipated new feature was canceled

Foxconn employee says iPhone 7’s most anticipated new feature was canceled

The iPhone 7 will likely end up being very similar to the iPhone 6s in terms of overall design. But existing leaks suggest there are plenty of significant differences, including redesigned antennas on the back, a new home button concept, the exclusion of a headphone jack, and new cameras on both the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch iPhones. However, a new report from Asia says that one of the most anticipated new features coming to the iPhone 7 may have been canceled.

iOS 10 Features

Video shows us 50 new features that are hidden in iOS 10

Video shows us 50 new features that are hidden in iOS 10

By on June 16, 2016 at 10:55 AM.

Apple’s first iOS 10 beta is surprisingly stable but that still doesn’t mean non-developers should install it. While it’s possible (and easy) to install the new iOS 10 beta without a developer account, the company now has a public beta program that lets anyone test beta software for free. Of course, a beta this early is bound to have some serious issues that will impact the user experience, so Apple’s first public beta won’t be available until sometime next month once most of the bigger wrinkles have been ironed out.

If you listen to Apple and fight the urge to install the developer beta, that doesn’t mean you’ll be left out of the fun entirely. We’ve told you plenty about iOS 10 so far — here are the best new features, and here are some cool lesser-known iOS 10 features no one is talking about — and now a new video will show you even more new stuff hiding in iOS 10.

iOS 10’s hottest missing feature was just found hiding in beta 1

iOS 10’s hottest missing feature was just found hiding in beta 1

By on June 16, 2016 at 10:30 AM.

Apple’s big WWDC 2016 keynote was packed full of announcements from start to finish. The company didn’t unveil a single piece of new hardware on Monday, but all the new software features in iOS 10 and macOS Sierra were more than enough to keep fans busy in the days that followed. Of course, two hours wasn’t nearly enough time to go over all of the changes Apple made in what the company is calling its biggest iOS update ever.

Now that iOS 10 beta 1 has been released — you can learn how to install it with or without a developer account in this post — we’ve uncovered dozens of features Apple didn’t go over on stage. For example, here are my 5 favorite new iOS 10 features that no one is talking about. But some new features coming to iOS 10 this fall haven’t even been implemented in the iOS 10 beta yet, and the hottest one has just been found hiding deep within Apple’s iOS 10 beta 1 code. More →

Apple’s digital helper, Siri, needs help

Apple’s digital helper, Siri, needs help

In the face of stiff competition from Android, Apple continued its push to make the Siri digital assistant useful to a large chunk of its users at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this week. But will it be enough?

Siri, Apple’s intelligent voice-activated digital assistant, has been around for a long time, since it was first introduced in 2011 with the iPhone 4s. But it’s still not widely used, according to a survey conducted by Fluent, an advertising technology company. Fluent engages in “performance marketing,” which requires an iPhone user, for example, to respond directly to an ad. More →

Samsung vs Apple Creative Ads

Samsung exec talks about how important mocking Apple was to the company’s success

Samsung exec talks about how important mocking Apple was to the company’s success

Earlier this year, Samsung was awarded the title Marketer of the Year at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Considering how ubiquitous the company has become over the past several years, this might not come as much of a surprise, but even Samsung executives will admit that it wasn’t long ago when consumers were calling the company “boring and monotonous.”

So how did Samsung turn things around?

Original iPhone Prototype

One of Apple’s first iPhone prototypes featured a curved display

One of Apple’s first iPhone prototypes featured a curved display

Thanks to an increasingly large pool of iPhone users looking to upgrade, there’s a strong chance that the upcoming iPhone 7 will become Apple’s most successful iPhone model yet. That’s all well and good, but it’s starting to look like 2017’s iPhone 7s will be the revolutionary upgrade that Apple enthusiasts have long been waiting for.

In fact, the iPhone 7s may constitute such a dramatic upgrade that Apple may even decide to forgo the ‘7s’ title and instead call its 2017 iPhone the iPhone 8. And based on the rumors that we’ve seen thus far, such a departure from Apple’s traditional naming scheme would be more than appropriate.

MacBook Pro

Code in macOS may confirm MacBook Pro with OLED touch panel and Touch ID

Code in macOS may confirm MacBook Pro with OLED touch panel and Touch ID

WWDC came and went without any new hardware, but new APIs found in the recently released beta of MacOS Sierra seem to confirm that a MacBook Pro with a customizable OLED touch panel is in fact on the way.

Specifically, Mac Generation alerts us to the fact that the new MacOS beta contains references to items like “kHIDUsage_LED_CallPickup”, “kHIDUsage_LED_DoNotDisturb” and “kHIDUsage_LED_CapsLock.” In fact, an API Reference page for MacOS Sierra on Apple’s website yields a long list of strings which seem to indicate upcoming support for the rumored MacBook Pro with an OLED display located in place of the function keys.

iPhone 8 Rumors

5 big changes supposedly coming to next year’s iPhone 8

5 big changes supposedly coming to next year’s iPhone 8

By on June 15, 2016 at 3:25 PM.

Back in late May, I covered a report from Nikkei and explained why in all likelihood, it was ridiculous. According to the story, Apple decided to change its strategy with the iPhone lineup and extend the amount of time between big new iPhone redesigns from two years to three. This, the report explained, is why all those iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus leaks show a phone that is so similar this year’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

Nope. More →

New iOS 10 feature will make it so your iPhone never runs out of storage

New iOS 10 feature will make it so your iPhone never runs out of storage

Per usual, Apple’s WWDC keynote yesterday was chock-full of new announcements. In fact, Apple had so many new items to discuss that Apple executives were seemingly flying through their presentations just to make sure that they had time to cover everything. In turn, not every new feature of interest was covered by the keynote.

Most notably, the recently revealed iOS 10 is jam-packed with a number of features that Apple didn’t have time to cover. Earlier today, we got you up to speed on a few of these interesting features, and now we’ll cover yet another one that flew past our radar initially.
