Crazy iPhone trick turns your wallpapers into optical illusions

Earlier today we shared a video with you that covered 25 iPhone tweaks that will make you want to jailbreak your phone. There are definitely some fantastic tweaks in there and after watching that video, there’s no question that you’ll seriously consider jailbreaking your iPhone. Of course, just because you consider it doesn’t mean you’ll actually end up doing it.

If you decide not to jailbreak your iPhone, there are still some very cool tricks that will wow your friends and help set your iPhone apart from the pack. We showed you one nifty trick earlier this week, which allows anyone to easily turn all of their folders into round icons instead of the standard rounded squares. Now, we’re back with another crazy trick that might be even cooler. More →

25 iPhone tweaks that will make you want to jailbreak your phone

25 iPhone tweaks that will make you want to jailbreak your phone

Apple fans celebrated in droves earlier this week as a new iOS jailbreak was finally released for the most recent versions of Apple’s mobile platform, including the brand new iOS 9.3.3. It’s not a perfect solution and it isn’t a true untethered jailbreak, but it works very well and it’s very easy to apply. In fact, as we explained in a recent post, you don’t even have to connect your iPhone or iPad to a computer to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 and other recent versions. Instead, you can do the whole thing on your device quickly and easily using a special web-based tool accessible in mobile Safari.

Jailbreaking is easy indeed, but is it worthwhile? Wait, don’t answer that question just yet. Check out the 25 hot iOS tweaks covered below first, and then decide. More →

Yep, Apple can make the iPhone uglier

Yep, Apple can make the iPhone uglier

The iPhone is often regarded as the trendsetter in the smartphone business. Whatever Apple does with its phone tends to set design trends for the next couple years: plastic became glass, which gave way to the unibody metal phones everyone is churning out now.

Despite that, the iPhone is far from perfect, and the last two generations are a testament to that. There’s some “ugly” in both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s series, represented by the antenna lines on the back, and that protruding rear camera. But if you thought Apple couldn’t make the iPhone any uglier than that, then you’d be wrong.

How wrong? Well, look at this.

A surprisingly long list of body parts will open a iPhone Touch ID sensor

What do your nose, the heel of your foot and left nipple all have in common? Well, according to this Reddit thread, they will all work on an Apple Touch ID sensor. The same can’t be said for right nipples, unfortunately.

Highly reputable Reddit source “A_Gigantic_Potato” published his “comprehensive” list of different body parts that will work with a Touch ID sensor. For a part that was only meant to recognise fingerprints, it turns out that the Touch ID sensor is surprisingly versatile.

iPhone Sales

Apple sold its billionth iPhone last week

Apple sold its billionth iPhone last week

When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone back in 2007, the Apple co-founder laid out a rather modest goal for the company’s revolutionary smartphone — to sell 1 million units. At the time, 1 million in unit sales represented approximately 1% of the global smartphone market. And not only did Apple reach that goal with ease, it quickly became apparent that the iPhone itself was a juggernaut, a once-in-a-lifetime product that would forever change the way we interact with technology.

With each passing quarter, iPhone sales continued to skyrocket. Indeed, it wasn’t until the company’s March 2016 quarter that iPhone sales would experience their first year-over-year sales decline. That said, Apple last week reached an impressive new milestone — 1 billion iPhones sold.

Microsoft thinks its new iOS camera app takes better photos than the iPhone

Microsoft is not a real contender in the smartphone business when it comes to hardware, but the company keeps launching exciting new apps for other platforms – or buying cool mobile apps – in its quest to dominate iPhone and Android. One such app from the software giant is Pix, a “smarter” camera app that’s supposed to take better pictures than the default iPhone camera app. Or, at least, that’s what Microsoft says. More →

iPhone Tricks 2016

Weird iOS glitch lets you make all your iPhone folders round

Weird iOS glitch lets you make all your iPhone folders round

Remember back in April when we told you about a nifty trick that let you completely change the look of your iPhone’s home screen without having to jailbreak your device? For some odd reason, using a very small image as the wallpaper on your iPhone caused iOS to hiccup and display all of your device’s folder icons as circles rather than the standard rounded squares.

Well, this bizarre glitch is back and it still works on the latest version of iOS, which Apple just released last week. More →

Apple Earnings Release

Apple reports Q3 earnings: iPhone sales continue to slide, but Apple beats estimates

Apple reports Q3 earnings: iPhone sales continue to slide, but Apple beats estimates

What goes up must come down, and Apple is in the midst of a tough lesson in gravity at the moment. The company’s second-quarter earnings report this past April marked the first time Apple had ever reported a decline in iPhone sales. Of course, the decline was expected by anyone who was paying attention — after astronomical iPhone 6 sales fueled by pent-up demand for iPhones with larger displays, there was simply no way Apple was going to be able to keep pace with an incremental “S” upgrade. What was unexpected, however, was how dramatic that sales decline would be.

With the second quarter behind us and serious questions surrounding the future of Apple’s core business swirling, all eyes were still fixed on the iPhone ahead of Tuesday’s fiscal Q3 earnings report. More →
