In fact, the last three non-“S” iterations of the iPhone — the iPhone 4, the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 6 — all drew scrutiny for flaws that generated a firestorm of media attention. More →

Developer warns of yet another big iPhone security flaw

Apple really isn’t having a good week. Things started out well enough when Apple revealed on Monday morning that more than 10 million combined iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handset were sold during their debut weekend.

Not impressed by the iPhone 6? Here’s a complete guide to switching from iOS to Android

It seems like Apple fans are pretty impressed with the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, for the most part. By the time launch weekend was over, Apple had sold more than 10 million new iPhones. But as the saying goes, “you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” There are undoubtedly some current iPhone users looking to upgrade who want nothing to do with either of Apple’s new smartphones, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

If you’re a current iPhone user who may soon be purchasing a new Android phone — Motorola’s awesome new Moto X and Samsung’s hotly anticipated Galaxy Note 4 are both about to launch — you should know that switching can sometimes be a complicated endeavor. But luckily, there’s plenty of help out there to make the move as painless as possible. More →

Here’s a simple way to spy on your kid’s iPhone activity

Spying on smartphones is a hot topic nowadays, following the recent celebrity nudes leaks, but also Apple’s and Google’s independent commitments to better protecting personal data on mobile devices. However, there’s one kind of spying that some smartphone users might actually be interested in, and that’s keeping tabs on their children who are already using smartphones, especially younger kids who have been given a smartphone of their own. To test one such app, BuzzFeed’s Katie Notopoulos monitored a 21-year old student for two weeks and learned a ton of details about her target in the process. More →
