10 great iOS 10 widgets that should be on every iPhone

2 hours ago

It might not be tomorrow. It might not even be five years from now. But some day, Apple’s iOS platform will support home screen widgets. Apple’s unique iOS widget implementation is thought of by some as offering the best of both worlds. Widget support is there and it’s somewhat versatile, but widgets are buried off screen, forcing users to swipe to the right on either the lock screen or the first home screen in order to access the widget pane. On one hand, this allows iOS to support widgets without causing a big drain on the battery. On the other, it means zero-touch access to information, which is arguably the best thing about mobile widgets, is not possible.

Since iOS 10 widgets are hidden off screen, many people don’t even both using the feature. But we’re here to tell you that it’s time to give widgets another shot on your iPhone — and in this post, we’ll show you 10 iOS 10 widgets that should be installed on every iPhone. More →

Apple responds to claims that multiple older iPhones have gone up in flames

A Chinese consumer group that’s “loosely” affiliated with the government said it has received eight reports from iPhone 6 users who own devices that have caught fire spontaneously. That’s not the greatest news for Apple at this time, considering the iPhone battery performance issues it’s already dealing with. But before you start to jump to conclusions, it’s important to make it crystal clear that no, iPhones do not have a serious battery problem like the Galaxy Note 7. More →

Apple’s ‘Best of 2016’ list highlights the top movies, apps and TV shows of the year

Apple late on Tuesday unveiled its annual “Best of” list on iTunes. The list naturally highlights some of the best content available across iOS apps, music, movies, TV shows, e-books and more. With more media content to choose from than ever before, it’s certainly easy to get overwhelmed when you happen to be looking for a new app to download or a new TV show to get into. That said, Apple’s list provides a helpful jumping off point for anyone looking for some new entertainment options.

iPhone Camera Quality

The best camera is the one you have with you: statistically, an iPhone

The best camera is the one you have with you: statistically, an iPhone

Old sayings from grizzly, bearded photographers aside, there is a lot of truth in the fact that the best camera is the one you have at hand. It’s also the most important camera. Chances are that unless you’re a professional photographer, your phone camera is the only thing within arm’s reach when something amazing(ly cute) happens.

This isn’t just my imagination: data from Flickr shows that in 2016, the most common cameras on its platform weren’t Nikons or Canons or some Sony mirrorless system; 8 of the top 10 were iPhones.

Tim Cook insists the Apple Watch is doing just fine

The Apple Watch is doing just fine in terms of technology. We’re onto the second generation of hardware, all the early software kinks have been worked out, and there’s a healthy stable of third-party apps coming along.

But when it comes to actual sales of the Watch, Apple has remained eerily tight-lipped. The company has shown no delay in boasting about record-breaking iPhone sales before, but we haven’t heard so much about the Watch.

U.S. Supreme Court wipes the $399 million Samsung owed Apple for patent infringement

Just two months ago, Apple and Samsung took their epic legal battle to the U.S. Supreme Court where the two companies fought over the exact amount Samsung would ultimately have to pay Apple for patent infringement.

Before the proceedings began, Samsung was on the hook for $548 million, of which $399 million was in dispute. In other words, Samsung was always, at the very least, going to pay Apple $149 million.

Apple touts the iPhone 7 camera in new ‘Romeo and Juliet’ themed commercial

Apple earlier today released a new ad for the iPhone 7 highlighting the device’s superior camera technology. Titled “Romeo and Juliet”, the ad features two children performing the play of the same name. The ad begins with one of the more famous scenes from the play and is shot in such a way as to seems like a legit Hollywood production.

The big reveal, of course, is that the seemingly professional cinematography was achieved using only an iPhone 7 and is, in fact, nothing more than your run of the mill school play.

App Store Refunds

App Store developers say app refunds are being abused, and Apple isn’t helping

As part of its App Store policy, Apple can choose to give refunds to customers who are unsatisfied with an app they download. It’s a good, common-sense move, and a valuable tool for anyone who’s ever read a description, downloaded the app, and then wondered if they’re even using the same piece of software.

But according to some developers, customers are abusing the refund policy to get free games, and Apple is turning a blind eye to the practice.
