You can download Google Allo right now if you hate privacy

Google a few months ago unveiled two new mobile apps to talk to your friends, including video chat app Duo and iMessage rival Allo. Starting today, both are available on Android and iOS, as Allo is finally available to download — Duo was launched only a few weeks ago.

But before you dive in and install Allo on your Android device or iPhone you should know that Allo doesn’t have your best interest in mind, at least when it comes to privacy. More →

iPhone 6s Trade In

Apple just made it cheaper to upgrade to an iPhone 7

Apple just made it cheaper to upgrade to an iPhone 7

If you take time and effort, you can upgrade to a new iPhone every year for very little money. But not everyone has the willpower to deal with selling a phone on the internet, and for those people, Apple’s Trade Up program is coming to the rescue.

Apple just added the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and SE to its Trade Up program, which means you can get $315 off a new iPhone 7 when you trade in your older device.

iPhone Encryption Password Hack

The FBI didn’t need an iPhone backdoor — $100 of electronics does the same thing

The FBI didn’t need an iPhone backdoor — $100 of electronics does the same thing

The Apple vs. FBI fight over breaking the encryption of the San Bernardino iPhone was one of the most important news topics of the beginning of the year. Ultimately Apple won, as it didn’t have to create a backdoored version of iOS that would let the FBI spy on that iPhone 5c that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters. The FBI won too, as it bought an iPhone hack for more than $1.3 million that let it bypass the password that protects the lockscreen of iPhones.

iOS 10 Tips Tricks Dark Mode

Hidden iOS 10 trick lets you create your own night vision mode

Hidden iOS 10 trick lets you create your own night vision mode

Ok, so iOS 10 doesn’t have a system-wide dark mode that would make it easier on the eyes to interact with the phone at night, at the movies, or in any other low-light environment. Sure, there’s Night Shift, which is a great setting already, but that might not be enough to your needs, as the iPhone or iPad screens only gets a tint of orange in Night Shift.

However, there’s a way for anyone to create their own dark mode inside iOS 10, and switch it on whenever a darker iOS experience is needed. More →

iPhone 7 Teardown:

We can finally see what Apple gained by losing the headphone jack

We can finally see what Apple gained by losing the headphone jack

As is iPhone launch day tradition, the good folks over at iFixit have already taken a brand-new device and ripped it to shreds for your sick satisfaction. None of what’s inside is particularly unexpected, but one odd device is raising some eyebrows.

Where the headphone jack used to be, Apple has put a piece of plastic. There’s no really good way to sugarcoat this, other than to say it looks… kinda important?

Laptop Camera Cover Comey

FBI director assumes someone is spying on our webcams all the time21

FBI director assumes someone is spying on our webcams all the time21

FBI Director James Comey, a strong opponent of Apple’s way of encrypting software and hardware, just told us again that covering up that computer webcam with a lid is recommended. That means he strongly believes people can spy on you on devices that aren’t secure.

Imagine a world in which the iPhone would run an unencrypted version of iOS. We’d probably have to put fancy camera covers both on the front and the back of the device. Either that or accessory makers would simply sell premium cases that don’t have camera cutouts.

iPhone 7 Plus vs. Original iPhone Camera

New vs. original iPhone photo comparison shows how far we’ve come

New vs. original iPhone photo comparison shows how far we’ve come

Some people usually make the mistake of dismissing certain iPhone features after labeling them as minimal upgrades compared to last year’s model. But then, last year’s model may have brought over minimal improvements compared to the two-year-old device. That’s because Apple likes to build on its past innovations and add new useful features each year, even if some of them may seem unimportant at the time.

That’s not the case for this year’s iPhone cameras. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cameras bring over significantly improved cameras, and a comparison between the original iPhone and the iPhone 7 Plus shows how far Apple has come with its smartphone camera technology.

Pokemon Go Cheats iPhone No Jailbreak

Pokemon Go cheat that lets you walk anywhere without jailbreaking still works after update

Pokemon Go cheat that lets you walk anywhere without jailbreaking still works after update

Niantic released a Pokemon Go update for iPhone and Android that brings over the new Buddy feature, but also prevents rooted/jailbroken devices from playing the game. Niantic’s thinking here is that most Pokemon Go cheat apps will require a rooted device, so blocking rooted users would weed out cheaters. However, the best Pokemon Go cheat available on the iPhone still works following the 1.7.0 update. And the best part about it is that you don’t even need to jailbreak your iPhone to make use of it.

Apple’s iOS 10 porn problem is way bigger than ‘My Little Pony’

Apple’s iOS 10 porn problem is way bigger than ‘My Little Pony’

Of all the problems Apple must have foreseen during the launch week of a new iPhone, hardcore porn GIFs probably wasn’t at the top of the list. Earlier today, we shared a disturbing Deadspin report about a graphic, sexual My Little Pony GIFs appearing in the new iMessage GIF search for the word “butt.”

Unsurprisingly, this wasn’t the only inappropriate image to slip through the cracks. Hours later, a woman wrote in to The Verge to let them know that her eight-year-old child searched for the word “huge” and was greeted by “a very explicit image” of “a woman giving oral sex to a well endowed male.”
