Haven’t you heard? The “iPhone 7” is boring, if that’s what Apple decides to call its new 2016 flagship phone. But if the “iPhone 7” name isn’t used until next year, then the new 7 will be very exciting, and it’ll sport a radical redesign. Now, a Samsung marketing video perfectly explains why the iPhone is indeed due for a massive upgrade in 2017, at least when it comes to screen performance. More →

Apple on Thursday released beta versions for its upcoming software releases, including iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, that were only available to developers prior to yesterday. If you’ve got an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and you’ve been exercising restraint, you might finally want to install iOS 10 beta the proper way – that means running the public beta rather than hacking your way into it. In what follows, we’re going to tell you how to do it.
There is absolutely no question that the 2016 campaign trail leading up to November’s election has been and will continue to be one of the most bizarre ordeals in history. Things have been unconventional at best and completely absurd at worst, and the battle has only gotten more sad and strange now that the field has been narrowed down.
Looking for the best possible view to watch along as the democratic system circles the drain? There’s an app for that. More →
Apple’s latest laptop is the Retina MacBook. While its design is sleek and slim, it does away with one of the more nifty features that Apple’s MacBook lineup has become known for over the years. The magnetic MagSafe charger connection is a brilliant way to power a laptop, replacing standard plugs and ports with a magnetic connection that separates with ease in the event that someone steps on your cable.
This great tech never made its way to Apple’s mobile devices, and it probably never will — at least, not officially. More →

As promised back during its WWDC 2016 keynote, Apple has released a public beta for iOS 10 that anyone can download. This is one of the most substantial updates the mobile operating system has received in years, so despite the fact that they will have to deal with bugs and incomplete features, we expect thousands of iPhone users to install the public beta in the coming days.
Apple released a brand new version of its upcoming iOS 10 operating system on Tuesday, exciting developers and fans around the word in the process. Each new release between now and September will mark another round of bug fixes, refinements and feature additions in iOS 10, and iOS 10 beta 2 is packed full of changes that fall into all three categories.
We’ve already taken a look at the biggest and most important new additions Apple made to iOS 10 beta 2, and now it’s time to check out just about everything else. More →
Tackling the smartphone market in China has to be nothing short of an exercise in frustration for Apple. On the one hand, the country remains one of Apple’s most strategic geographic regions, bolstered by a population of 1.35 billion people. But on the other hand, Apple is finding that maneuvering within the company is fraught with no shortage of challenges.
From patent troll lawsuits and iPhone 7 clones already hitting the streets, it seems that we can’t go a week without some sort of obstacle emerging in Apple’s path. And to top it all off, now comes word that competition within the Chinese smartphone market is fiercer than ever before, leaving Apple in a position of playing catch-up.
Apple released iOS 10 beta 2 on Tuesday, which brings many improvements and fixes as well as a number of tweaks that were not available in the first beta release. Among them, however, there’s one new feature in particular that you should know about, and use as soon as possible to fix your entire iPhone experience.
In iOS 10, Apple is going to replace its iconic “slide to unlock” gesture with something that sounds really dumb, “press to unlock.” In the first iOS 10 beta, even after the Touch ID login was complete you still had to press the button to unlock the phone, as seen in the animation above. Thankfully, Apple “fixed” the issue in its latest release. More →
