The company is now taking one extra step to try to block fraud, and it’s a new captcha feature intended to authenticate players to ensure that they’re “not robots.”

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.

iPhone Vs Android

New study finds iPhones fail far more often than Android phones

New study finds iPhones fail far more often than Android phones

By about 8 hours ago.

Apple customers are generally a shockingly loyal bunch. The company’s high repeat customer rate can be attributed to a combination of factors that concern iPhones themselves as well as Apple’s industry-leading customer service. Dealing with Apple’s customer care department has always been a pleasure compared to dealing with rival companies, and iPhones themselves have historically been very reliable, offering a consistently smooth user experience that people love.

But now, a new study suggests that things may be changing for the worse where the iPhone user experience is concerned. More →

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.
