There are plenty of advantages Apple’s iPhone lineup has over rival smartphones. They’re faster, smoother and far more refined by most measures, and they’re supported by a third-party app ecosystem with quality that is completely unmatched. Every smartphone supports apps, of course, but none are as consistent as iOS apps and none offer the same level of quality. Even big-name developers that develop apps for multiple platforms have said as much.
But nothing is perfect, of course, and iOS definitely has its shortcomings. One of the most common gripes among savvy smartphone users is that iOS isn’t customizable enough, and it’s certainly a valid complaint. In this post, we’re going to show you a crazy glitch in iOS that will let you customize the appearance of your iPhone so that it looks completely different from anyone else’s. And the best part is that you don’t even need to jailbreak your device. More →

Safety implications aside, this has to be the greatest and most hilarious story of comeuppance we’ve seen in a long time in consumer tech.
Xiaomi, for those unaware, is a China-based smartphone startup that has found tremendous success in the cell phone market. In the company’s early days, it launched inexpensive, relatively high-quality Android phones that looked like iPhones. In fact, it shamelessly copied every move Apple made. It even once launched a phone by having an executive in jeans and a black mock turtleneck host a press conference. Seriously, we’re not joking.
Then, Xiaomi moved on and started to copy everything Samsung did, too. It launched nice big phones that mirrored Samsung’s nice big phones, and it even has a line of phablets with built-in styluses. But now, Xiaomi has taken things a step too far. More →

Apple confirmed last week that it does not plan to release opening-weekend sales numbers for the iPhone 7, launching industry watchers and bloggers into a frenzy. Apple obviously knows that no one wants its boring new iPhone 7, right?! Well, the reality of the situation is likely a bit more involved than that. Several factors undoubtedly led to Apple’s decision, and decreased demand could certainly be one of them.

Apple’s strict public relations policies are nowhere near as strict as they once were. Why should you care? Today, it means that what was once a small and select group of early reviewers is now a much larger pot for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

This year, however, people seem to be less sure because visually, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus don’t look like big upgrades.
Can you judge a book by its cover? It’s time to find out if this year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are worth your hard-earned cash. More →
