iOS 10 concept video shows off fantastic new features we hope Apple adds

Thanks to Siri, we finally know when WWDC is going to be held this year: June 13 through the 17 in case you’re wondering. But even with WWDC now just about two months away, details surrounding iOS 10 remain unusually murky.

While Apple at this point is likely shoring up iOS 10’s feature set, a new video and accompanying article from MacStories provides us with a wish list of iOS 10 features we would be lucky to see Apple implement in its next-gen version of iOS.

iPhone 7 Android Headphone Jack

The iPhone 7 isn’t even out and rivals are already copying a rumored signature feature

The iPhone 7 isn’t even out and rivals are already copying a rumored signature feature

Like it or not, Apple is still the company that dictates the future of the smartphone, even though the iPhone isn’t the dominant platform by market share. The features introduced by the iPhone are often found on devices from Apple’s rivals, and the same thing will happen with the iPhone 7.

The handset is reportedly going to lack a 3.5mm headphone jack, a standard feature across just about all consumer devices that output audio. And it’s likely that other smartphone makers are going to follow suit in the future. But one company seems so certain that the 3.5mm headphone port is going to die that it just launched no less than three new Android handsets that all lack the audio jack. More →

iPhone Camera Tips And Tricks

6 secret iPhone camera tricks you’ll wish you had always known

6 secret iPhone camera tricks you’ll wish you had always known

By on April 20, 2016 at 12:32 PM.

Even for its time, the 2 megapixel camera that came with the original iPhone was unremarkable; the captured detail was wanting and the camera performed horribly in low light settings. But over time, Apple picked up the pace  and wisely decided to devote a tremendous amount of engineering resources towards improving photo quality on the iPhone. Today, Apple has more than 800 engineers who work exclusively on iPhone camera related technologies.

Flash forward to 2016 and the iPhone camera today is, not surprisingly, a far cry from the laughing-stock it was back in 2007. Quite the opposite, each new iPhone model seemingly sets an entirely new bar for mobile photography excellence. In turn, it’s become easier than ever for even novice photographers to take absolutely stunning photos. Indeed, Apple has even centered an entire iPhone advertising campaign around amateur iPhone photography.

All the same, there remain a number of iPhone camera tricks and tips that, for whatever reason, tend to fly under the radar. Not to worry, we’ve compiled 6 lesser known tips designed to help you take your iPhone photos to the next level.

San Bernardino iPhone FBI

What the FBI found on the San Bernardino iPhone

What the FBI found on the San Bernardino iPhone

The locked iPhone 5c belonging to one of the San Bernardino shooters is one of the best-known iPhones in the world thanks to the FBI vs. Apple fight over encryption that we’ve witness in recent weeks. Both the FBI and Apple had their way. The FBI managed to unlock the handset in its quest to find leads related to the investigation, but it did so without Apple’s help. The iPhone maker, meanwhile, avoided a court order that may have forced it to unlock it by circumventing its own security features built into iOS 9.

The FBI was quick to unlock the iPhone with the help of an unnamed party, and we now know what it found. More →

Electric car battle intensifies as Apple just hired one of Tesla’s top executives

When there’s smoke, there’s usually fire. And when it comes to Apple’s long-rumored car project, there’s a whole a lot of smoke. Just yesterday, word broke that Apple has a top-secret design lab in Berlin, Germany where a team of 15-20 engineers with deep experience in the auto industry are busy working on projects relating to Apple’s electric car initiative. And earlier today, a new report from Electrek relays that Apple just poached an extremely senior Tesla engineer named Chris Porritt.

iPhone 7 Galaxy S7 Storage

New report outlines one way the iPhone 7 might not match the Galaxy S7

New report outlines one way the iPhone 7 might not match the Galaxy S7

One key component of the Galaxy S7 is Samsung’s ultra-fast universal flash storage (UFS) that’s able to offer better speeds than typical memory solutions used in smartphones and other computers. Based on Samsung’s advanced V-NAND flash memory chips, the UFS storage would significantly improve the iPhone’s performance. A new report says that although Samsung and Apple have inked a storage deal for the first time since the iPhone 5, Samsung’s UFS might not make it into the iPhone until next year. More →

Apple Vs Netflix

Report uncovers Apple’s secret plan to go to war with Netflix

In a world where Steve Ballmer is an NBA owner and former Apple executive Tony Fadell is a Google employee, I suppose the notion of Apple getting into the TV production business in an effort to take on Netflix isn’t that crazy. Echoing a report which first surfaced this past August, a recently published FastCompany article sheds some new light on Apple’s somewhat ambitious attempt to develop original programming and, in turn, make an impactful and bold entry into the TV business.
