We’ve got 11 iOS apps in total for you on Tuesday’s list, and you’ll find them all laid out below. Remember though, these sales could end at any time. More →
In a ruling handed down this morning, Apple was given a $14.5 billion bill for back taxes by the European Commission, related to its business in Europe and Ireland. Apple’s tax situation, including the hundreds of billions in cash held offshore, has always been a hot topic for the company. But how did it land in this mess, and who does it even owe money to anyway?
Tech fans around the world are abuzz as the rumors ramp up ahead of Apple’s big iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus event next week. We already know practically everything we should expect from Apple next week. The company’s new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will look a great deal like its old 6 and 6 Plus, but it’ll pack some big performance upgrades as well as a handful of new features. Both new models will have bigger batteries and twice the internal storage at each tier, and the larger iPhone 7 Plus will also sport a new dual-lens camera design.
But with Apple’s big iPhone 7 unveiling just around the corner, attention now turns briefly to Samsung because a new leak has seemingly revealed some exciting details about the company’s upcoming Galaxy S8. More →
We’ve talked about this more than once before, but Pokemon Go can be fairly inscrutable at times. If you never do any research, there are all kinds of tips, tricks and easter eggs you’ll likely never find. But if and when you finally do decide to use the internet to improve your Pokemon Go game, you might want to watch out for tips that seem reasonable, but have been proven false.
Today’s batch of Amazon’s best daily deals is a great one, and it includes a number of products that have never been featured in a daily deals post before, like a combination SD card and microSD card reader that works with any iPhone or iPad for just $10.

The iPhone 7 will supposedly introduce at least one new color, which certainly sounds exciting to people who put appearance above all else when it comes to new iPhones. But what will the new iPhone color(s) be? Some say that black will join the existing silver, gold, pink and gray options. Others think that blue will be Apple’s new hue for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. And some even hope that both new colors will be available come mid-September. But a reliable source of leaks has more info that seems to settle the matter: There will apparently only be one new color, and it’s probably not the color you were hoping for.
Two separate reports emerged around the same time on Monday claiming to offer new details on a number of key iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus specs. According to the claims, much of what we’ve seen and heard thus far about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is accurate. They’ll feature a new 16nm Apple A10 processor, 2GB or 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM depending on the model, upgraded cameras including a new dual-lens setup on the iPhone 7 Plus, and bigger batteries. That’s all good news.
But there was some bad news to be found in yesterday’s leak, and the more I think about it the more annoyed I get. More →
Sonos wasn’t the first company in the world to release a wireless speaker, but there’s little question that the company played a major role in popularizing the category. Thanks to the success Sonos has had, every audio company imaginable has jumped head first into wireless speakers.

In this post, we’ll check out five Sonos alternatives that offer great designs and fantastic sound. More →
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver may officially be on hiatus until September 25, but the comedian that the Daily Show should have never let leave was up to his usual tricks over the weekend in the form of a web-only video about the sad state of superhero movies. If you’re looking for biting commentary about the stream of garbage superhero movies we’ve seen as of late, that’s not exactly what Oliver has in mind. While he touches on that every so briefly, the crux of Oliver’s web-exclusive video is essentially him pitching a brand new superhero, one that he originally came up with as a kid.
Users of Apple’s iPhones are generally among the most satisfied smartphone users in the world. Study after study has shown high satisfaction rates and low defection rates among iPhone owners, who point to sleek smartphone designs, reliable software, a smooth user experience and best-in-class customer service as reasons for sticking with the iPhone.
Of course, nothing is perfect and users also have some serious complaints about Apple’s smartphone lineup. Two pain points in particular always seem to rise to the top of the pile, but a new leak reinforces the notion that Apple plans to address one of them with this year’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Over the past few months, it’s become increasingly hard to ignore the fact that Apple’s Mac lineup has gotten unusually stale and, dare we say, even a bit outdated. Apple’s Mac Pro, for example, hasn’t been refreshed in nearly 1,000 days. There is good news on the horizon, however. For any prospective Mac buyers who have been patiently waiting for a massive refresh, Apple’s hardware plans this coming fall shouldn’t disappoint.
According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple over the next few months is planning to roll out a slew of long-overdue Mac upgrades. Whether you’re in the market for a new notebook or a new desktop computer, it appears that Apple will have a little bit of something for everybody.
How on Earth is the summer already over? It feels like just yesterday you were wrapping up the school year and heading home for summer break, and now the fall semester is set to begin. Seriously, it’s like you blinked and your whole vacation was gone. Since the fall semester snuck up on you this year, you’ve obviously let certain things slip through the cracks… certain things like buying all the new textbooks you need for this semester’s classes. Lucky for you, procrastinating paid off because Amazon has two big sales going right now that are going to save you some serious cash. More →
Niantic instated Pokemon Go bans soon after the game was launched, but those were only temporary measures meant to prevent cheaters from taking advantage of various loopholes while playing the game. Since then, Pokemon Go cheats only got more sophisticated, and Niantic upgraded its security by announcing permanent bans.
In case your Pokemon Go account was banned for cheating, you may be in luck, as Niantic is slowly unbanning some of the punished accounts. However, there are various types of violations, so not all bans will be revoked.
