Here’s what Apple might name the iPhone 7 instead of ‘iPhone 7’

It’s a tiny bit amusing that despite everything we know about Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, there are still some pretty basic things we don’t know.

We know just about exactly what the iPhone 7 is going to look like, and we also know what the larger iPhone 7 Plus will look like. We know the phones will lose the 3.5mm audio port and gain thinner housings with redesigned antenna lines that are much easier on the eyes. We also know that both phones will feature new and improved cameras, though the camera on the Plus model will be a much bigger upgrade than the one on the smaller iPhone 7.

But ironically, we still don’t know one of the most basic things about these two upcoming new phones: We have no idea what they’ll be called. More →

Watch all 8 generations of iPhones burn for your sick satisfaction

Do you know how many poorly-paid workers slaved in dangerous conditions to build these iPhones? Well, it doesn’t matter. Because now they’re going to burn in the name of YouTube views. And you’re going to watch it, you depraved Western consumer.

Ok, so there is actually 1/10th of an amount of reasoning behind this video. It tests which iPhone is the most fireproof, which would be useful if you frequently play Pokemon Go in burning buildings.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro look hotter than ever in new leaked video

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro look hotter than ever in new leaked video

By on July 25, 2016 at 10:40 AM.

There sure is a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, especially for a pair of new smartphones that have been deemed by bloggers to be “boring.” We’re seeing just as much interest in Apple’s next-generation models set to debut this September as we did last year ahead of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus release — and as you might recall, that ended up being Apple’s biggest iPhone launch ever, albeit by a narrow margin. With expectations mounting for a massive tenth-anniversary overhaul next year though, Apple’s 2015 launch is going to be difficult to beat in 2016. But even if Apple falls short, it’ll still have the two most popular new smartphones on its hands when they finally debut in about a month and a half.

Of course, you don’t have to wait that long to check out Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. More →

Latest leak confirms key details surrounding Google’s next-gen Nexus phones

It was a few months ago that we first heard that HTC might make not one but two 2016 Nexus devices from Google. More rumors emerged since then, including a few reports from trustworthy sources, providing design details and specs list for the HTC Sailfish and Marlin, the upcoming 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch new Nexus devices. A fresh leak seems to confirm some of these reports, indicating that the Sailfish will have the high-end specs you expect. More →

Galaxy Note 7 to have bigger battery than Note 5 but smaller than Galaxy S7 edge

The Galaxy Note 7 will be unveiled on August 2nd and hit stores in the coming weeks – reports indicate the phone might be available for preorder as soon as Samsung’s Unpacked keynote wraps up. But with a couple of weeks, until the phone become officials, we’re still pounded by a large number of Galaxy Note 7 leaks. The latest one says the phone will have a bigger battery than the Galaxy Note 5, its predecessor. But that’s not necessarily a good thing, given that the phone might have a smaller battery than the Galaxy S7 edge. More →

iPhone 7 Release Date

Apple’s iPhone 7 finally gets a release date

Apple’s iPhone 7 finally gets a release date

It’s time to mark your calendars, folks. According to reputable leaker Evan Blass, Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 7 is set to hit store shelves on Friday, September 16th.

Word of the not-yet-official release date originally came via a tweet from Blass indicating that Apple was going to release the device during the week of September 12. In turn, there was some initial confusion as to whether or not the week of September 12 referred to the product’s unveiling or the actual launch event.

iPhone Security Touch ID

Police want to use 3D fingerprint replicas to access murder victim’s iPhone

Police want to use 3D fingerprint replicas to access murder victim’s iPhone

A few months ago, Apple was embroiled in a high-publicized legal battle with the FBI over mobile security. If you recall, the controversy began after Apple refused to create a custom version of iOS that would have enabled authorities to bypass the lockscreen on the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists. In defending Apple’s position, Tim Cook boldly said that the FBI wanted Apple to create the “software equivalent of cancer.”

Ultimately, the legal dispute fizzled out after the FBI managed to purchase software from a third-party that enabled it to bypass the lockscreen without Apple’s assistance. With that as a backdrop, we recently stumbled upon a report detailing a novel way that law enforcement authorities in Michigan managed to access a locked iPhone of a murder victim, without any help from Apple or even having to lay out hundreds of thousands of dollars to a third-party.

Huge leak shows Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner in action on video

This has been a big week of firsts for eager Samsung fans who can’t wait to get their hands on the company’s upcoming new flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 7. After a few rounds of new photos leaked earlier in the week, we showed you the first ever video of a working Galaxy Note 7 on Thursday. The new flagship phablet appears to be everything we’ve come to expect after weeks of leaks and rumors — and that’s a good thing, because leaks have thus far painted a very impressive picture.

Now, another first: A video posted on Weibo by an anonymous user appears to show the Galaxy Note 7’s new iris scanner in action. More →

There’s still a couple of weeks to go until Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy Note 7, but I don’t know what the company is really waiting for. We’ve heard all kinds of rumors and even seen video of the phone in action.

A new series of photos from the Chinese Weibo site clearly show a device that looks a lot like the upcoming Galaxy Note 7. The pictures confirm everything we’ve suspected before: it will ship in at least three colors, have an all-glass design, keep the S Pen, and even add an iris scanner. But there’s something special about these photos that Samsung fans will notice right away, and it points to not one but two new inbound Note 7 models.

iPhone 7 Apple

iPhone 7 won’t have a headphone jack, but Apple has a trick up its sleeve to keep you happy

iPhone 7 won’t have a headphone jack, but Apple has a trick up its sleeve to keep you happy

Typically, the impending release of a new iPhone model focuses on whatever cool and exciting new features Apple has in the works. The iPhone 7, though, is a bit different. In fact, it’s not unreasonable to say that the upcoming unveiling of the iPhone 7 has been marked by controversy more than anything else.

According to a number of credible reports, Apple’s next-gen smartphone will ship without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. And while Apple isn’t shy about discarding popular technologies to the curb, the 3.5mm headphone jack has effectively been around for more than 100 years and is as reliable and durable as it is universal.

Companies out in China have gotten their hands on leaked iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro schematics, and they’ve been building dummy units in nearby factories ever since.

Leaked photo might be our first look at Google’s next-gen Nexus phone

Google is going to launch two new Nexus smartphones this year, codenamed Marlin and Sailfish. The company has yet to make them official, but a variety of reports from solid sources have revealed just about everything there is to know about them. The phones are supposed to share the same set of high-end hardware, which could make the 2016 Nexus handsets real flagship killers, and they’re expected to share the same design as well.

While we did see renders based on some of the recent leaks, actual photos of the smartphones were not featured in previous reports. However, that’s about to change, as a new image might show us one of the upcoming smartphones for the first time. More →
