Apple fans, we have some good news and some bad news for you. The bad news is that Apple’s latest iOS 10.1 beta software still doesn’t unlock the sweet new dark mode feature we’ve all been waiting impatiently for ever since it was found hiding in iOS 10 this past summer. Seriously, Apple, just give us dark mode already! There is good news though, and it’s that Apple just released iOS 10.1 beta 2 with a number of bug fixes, refinements, new features and of course Portrait Mode for the iPhone 7 Plus, and we’re going to show you how to install it without the need for a developer account.

Google’s big press conference might be the talk of the town today, and Apple fans might feel a bit left out. Don’t worry though because we’ve got you covered — in this post, you’ll find nine paid iPhone and iPad apps that are all free downloads right now for a limited time. If nine isn’t enough, you’ll also find a few remaining freebies in yesterday’s post if you hurry. More →
Google event? What Google event? Apple on Tuesday released a new build of its upcoming new iOS software, iOS 10.1 beta 2. The new build includes a number of bug fixes and refinements, and it also includes the hotly anticipated Portrait Mode feature for iPhone 7 Plus users. You can download it right now as an over the air (OTA) update or from Apple’s developer website.
Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus might be all too familiar for some users, but there’s no question that they’re still among the sleekest smartphones in the world. That new Jet Black color is particularly hot… at least, it is until it gets all scratched up. As great as Apple’s newest iPhones are in the hardware design department, they fall painfully flat in one key area: wallpapers. But if you’re looking to spice things up a bit on your new iPhone 7 — or on any older iPhone or Android phone, for that matter — you’ve come to the right place. More →

Late last week, we told you about a killer Pokemon Go cheat that works on iPhones without the need to jailbreak. It lets users walk anywhere in the game without actually making them move an inch, so they can capture far more Pokemon than they would if they had to actually leave the house and go around hunting Pokemon. Heaven forbid! As we noted, that cheat still works following Niantic’s latest Pokemon Go update for iOS, which is great news. The bad news, however, is that users have to jump through a few hoops in order to use this cool hack, and not everyone will want to deal with those hoops.
Well guess what: we’ve caught wind of a new Pokemon Go cheat for iOS, and it could be a game-changer for you — literally. Not only does this Pokemon Go cheat work on iPhones and iPads that are not jailbroken, it’s actually a regular iOS app that Apple has approved and made available for download in the App Store. More →
Even now as the Pokemon Go app declines in popularity, it’s still one of the most widely played mobile games in the world right now. It’s also still a top-five app on the US top grossing iPhone apps chart, which is quite impressive considering the heavy competition from perennial App Store leaders. Part of the beauty of the game is that it can go on forever if you want it to and the novelty hasn’t worn off for you. Of course, as you progress it gets more and more difficult to the point where you might become frustrated and give up… unless you cheat.
Look, we’re not saying that cheating is a good thing, but we’re also not here to judge. After all, this is just a silly smartphone game we’re talking about. But if you’re going to cheat, you might as well do it by using the ultimate Pokemon Go hack that lets you walk anywhere without actually moving an inch. And the best part is that you don’t even have to jailbreak your iPhone to do it. More →

What happens if you’re unhappy with Apple’s customer care practices? If you’re the guy in the following video, then you simply take your petanque steel ball to the closest Apple store and start smashing everything you can, whether it’s the newest iPhone on display or a MacBook. More →
The iPhone is one of the most secure devices you can purchase these days, but Apple’s security is far from being hack-proof. iOS 10 has already been jailbroken, although the jailbreak isn’t yet available to the masses. That means there are vulnerabilities in the code that hackers can use to get access to the phone. And a company that sells such exploits has raised its bug bounty for iPhone zero-day attacks — the kind of vulnerabilities that Apple hasn’t yet discovered — to $1.5 million. More →
The advent of low-fee stock trading platforms like E-Trade brought a rush new money into the market. For better or worse, online self-service equity trading platforms opened up the stock market to droves of new investors. These services have only grown more accessible over time, with many such as TD Ameritrade and E-Trade advertising entry-level commissions of $10 per trade.
$10 per trade is a tremendous value compared to traditional services, but now there’s a newer service that offers an even better value for budding investors. More →

Apple likes to make boasts about how secure its Messages app is, but new revelations from The Intercept detail how Apple keeps a log of every iPhone user’s texting contacts that they will readily share with law enforcement authorities when served with a court order.
Now this isn’t a Snowden level leak by any means, nor does it imply or suggest that Apple has access to the content of any privately sent messages, but in today’s age where user privacy is a hot-button issue, it can never hurt to be cognizant of what information might be shared with the police.
