President-elect Donald Trump has vowed time and time again to return America to greatness. One of the pillars of that greatness is the US-China economic relationship, which Trump clearly wants to alter. But an editorial piece in one of China’s state-run newspapers can be seen as a warning of what might happen to Trump’s America in the event that a trade war erupts. More →
It seems like just yesterday that Apple released its hotly anticipated iOS 10.1 update, bringing Portrait Mode to the iPhone 7 Plus and pushing smartphone photography to the next level in the process. Believe it or not though, the company is getting ready to release yet another big iOS update that could come as soon as this week. In fact, it might even be released later today. We’ve covered bits and pieces of iOS 10.2 over the past couple of weeks as Apple has released new betas, but now that the software seems to be feature-complete, let’s take a look at all of the best new things set to hit your iPhone or iPad as soon as Apple’s iOS 10.2 update is released to the public.

“Hey, while you’re here, would you just mind checking my iPhone? It’s been doing this ‘updating’ thing recently. Oh, and my emails keep on not sending, could you take a look at that? And this wireless printer never does what I want it to.”
Yes, it’s that time of the year again. Trading turkey for tech advice is a time-honored and always-awful ritual for anyone under the age of 30 who still has parents. This year, Apple has seen the oncoming tide of woe, realized it needs to curry favor with young people to keep iPhones hip, and has launched an app to help.
Never has the world needed a weekend more badly than it does today. Thankfully, Friday has arrived, and so has our fifth and final collection of paid apps on sale of the week. If you want to spend your whole weekend laying in bed, downloading free apps, you are more than welcome to do so. Just read on and start downloading.
We all love emoji, don’t we? Well, ok, maybe not all of us love them, but they sure come in handy. And there’s no stopping the Unicode Consortium, which keeps churning out more or them on a regular basis. Case in point: the organization proposed 51 brand new emoji for acceptance in Unicode 10.
This has been an exceptionally long week already, but free stuff makes everything easier. To that end, we’ve gathered up 9 more paid apps on the App Store that you can download free of charge today. And if you’re quick, you might even be able to download some of the free apps from Wednesday before the sales end.

But if you need a distraction to help get you through the day, we don’t blame you, which is why we’ve gathered a collection of 10 free apps for your iPhone and iPad.
Sharing GIFs, short videos, and Live Photos is now possible in WhatsApp, as long as you have an iPhone. The functionality is built in other popular instant messaging apps, including Facebook’s Messenger, its other valuable chat platform. Apple’s iMessage also does GIFs. But it’s only now that WhatsApp is beginning to see the light. More →
If you’re in the market for a new iPhone and are looking to save a few bucks in the process, now might be a good time to pull the trigger. Earlier today, Apple began selling refurbished iPhone models on its U.S. online store for the first time.
For those unfamiliar, refurbished items are generally items that have either been returned or subject to repairs. That said, Apple ensures that ever refurbished item it sells is up to par with the company’s internal standards for quality and performance. Additionally, refurbished items from Apple come with a one-year warranty.
Niantic’s Pokemon Go mobile game is the easiest augmented reality experience that you can try to understand what the whole AR fuss is about. You basically have a digital layer that’s projected on top of your surroundings, as seen through your phone’s camera. The digital information on the screen changes depending on where you are. And this type of technology has great potential, far beyond what a mobile game can offer.
Apple is one of the companies that’s expected to release various AR projects in the future. Tim Cook has often hinted that AR is going to be big for the company, even though the CEO never made any announcements. The first AR app coming out of Apple HQ may be a redesigned Apple Maps application that uses AR to display location information on top of the real-world. More →
Apple on Monday released iOS 10.2 beta 2, a freshened up version of its initial iOS 10.2 beta that had been released just one week earlier on Halloween day. The releases were a bit closer than usual, but Apple was apparently eager to get the new build into developers’ hands. Why the rush? iOS 10.2 beta 2 is about much more than just bug fixes — it’s the first version of Apple’s iOS 10.2 software that includes the brand new “TV” app that Apple showed off on stage during its big MacBook Pro event in late October.
Now, following a successful rollout to developers on Monday, iOS 10.2 public beta 2 has been released, giving the public the opportunity to begin testing TV. More →
