Here’s what Apple might name the iPhone 7 instead of ‘iPhone 7’

It’s a tiny bit amusing that despite everything we know about Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, there are still some pretty basic things we don’t know.

We know just about exactly what the iPhone 7 is going to look like, and we also know what the larger iPhone 7 Plus will look like. We know the phones will lose the 3.5mm audio port and gain thinner housings with redesigned antenna lines that are much easier on the eyes. We also know that both phones will feature new and improved cameras, though the camera on the Plus model will be a much bigger upgrade than the one on the smaller iPhone 7.

But ironically, we still don’t know one of the most basic things about these two upcoming new phones: We have no idea what they’ll be called. More →

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro look hotter than ever in new leaked video

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro look hotter than ever in new leaked video

There sure is a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, especially for a pair of new smartphones that have been deemed by bloggers to be “boring.” We’re seeing just as much interest in Apple’s next-generation models set to debut this September as we did last year ahead of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus release — and as you might recall, that ended up being Apple’s biggest iPhone launch ever, albeit by a narrow margin. With expectations mounting for a massive tenth-anniversary overhaul next year though, Apple’s 2015 launch is going to be difficult to beat in 2016. But even if Apple falls short, it’ll still have the two most popular new smartphones on its hands when they finally debut in about a month and a half.

Of course, you don’t have to wait that long to check out Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. More →

iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak

You can now jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 and this video will show you how

You can now jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 and this video will show you how

Apple’s iOS software grows more and more capable with each new release, which in turn makes jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad far less appealing than it used to be. Years ago, third-party apps were so limited that jailbreaking was practically a necessity for anyone who wanted to get the most out of his or her iOS device. But in 2016 the story has changed, and it’ll change even more once iOS 10 is released this fall. Of course, there are still plenty of jailbreak apps and tweaks that hardcore users just can’t seem to live without, and they’ll be very happy to learn today’s news.

Apple just released iOS 9.3.3 to the public last week but the Chinese iOS hacking team Pangu has already managed to jailbreak it. There are a few caveats that make this particular jailbreak a bit tricky though, which is why you’ll find the how-to guide in the video below particularly useful. More →

Two of the best iPhone 7 leaks yet both surfaced last night

Two of the best iPhone 7 leaks yet both surfaced last night

Not a day has gone by in the past few weeks that hasn’t brought new iPhone 7 leaks with it. “Boring” or not, Apple’s next-generation iPhones represent the most hotly anticipated new consumer electronics launch of 2016. Companies out in China have gotten their hands on leaked iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro schematics, and they’ve been building dummy units in nearby factories ever since. Of course, each new look at these iPhone 7 mockups makes fans even more excited for Apple’s upcoming launch in September.

While you were fast asleep last night, two hot new iPhone 7 leaks surfaced. One shows us a hands-on video comparison of a rose gold iPhone 7 mockup and an iPhone 6s so we can check out all the subtle differences. Then the second is a photo that gives us our best look yet at the larger iPhone 7 Plus/Pro model’s most talked about new feature. More →

The Defenders Trailer

The first teaser trailer for Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’ made me so angry

The first teaser trailer for Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’ made me so angry

Look, if we’re being honest with ourselves we can admit that the past few Marvel movies have been… not great. They’re all still wonderfully entertaining thanks to huge budgets and compelling characters, but I’d wager that there aren’t many people out there who would argue that Avengers, Iron Man and Captain America movies have been getting better as they progress. That noticeable decline is one of the reasons I’m so excited for The Defenders, an upcoming new Netflix exclusive show that will combine the stories of four characters from the Marvel universe similar to what we’ve seen in The Avengers.

But the first teaser trailer Marvel just release didn’t pique my interest — it just made me angry. More →

iOS 10 Beta 3 Changes

You can now disable iOS 10’s most annoying new feature… but I don’t want to

You can now disable iOS 10’s most annoying new feature… but I don’t want to

Apple’s new iOS 10 software is anything but an Earth-shattering update. Instead, it’s a release that’s packed full of refinements and new features that enhance Apple’s existing apps. That said, there are a few changes that impact fundamental iPhone and iPad functionality, and some of those changes have been received better than others by iPhone users with access to the public and private iOS 10 betas. For example, everyone seems to love the new lock screen in Apple’s latest iOS software, but the new gesture used to actually unlock the phone had been widely criticized.

As it often does, Apple listened to users and made a change earlier this month in iOS 10 beta 2 to address the “issue.” But after switching back and forth, I actually think that Apple got it right the first time. More →

Gold Black iPhone Mod

Someone built a black and gold iPhone 6 and it’s everything you dreamed it would be

Someone built a black and gold iPhone 6 and it’s everything you dreamed it would be

Love it or hate it, no one can argue that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are unattractive phones. Apple has always had an incredible collective sense of style and design, and that extended to the iPhone right out of the gate in 2007. Perhaps that’s why so many of Apple’s rivals have copied the company’s designs so shameless time and time again. As great as Apple’s designs are though, there are always people who wish something was a little different — no antenna lines, or a flat back instead of a camera bump.

One wish in particular has made the rounds quite frequently over the past two years: people want a gold iPhone with a black face. The bad news is that there’s no sign Apple has plans to offer this sought-after color combo anytime soon. And the worse news for people who want a black and gold iPhone is that it looks even better than you thought it would. More →

Tesla Autopilot Crash Avoidance

Tesla’s Autopilot just saved someone’s life

Tesla’s Autopilot just saved someone’s life

Tesla’s advanced Autopilot system has been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately. Ever since news broke that Autopilot was enabled on a Model S at the time of a fatal crash, it seems like drivers try to blame Autopilot every time a Tesla gets into an accident. Of course, Tesla’s cars have a complex logging system that can easily determine whether or not Autopilot was enabled at the time of an incident. As a result, the company is often quick to respond when public accusations are made.

But today, Autopilot is finally back in the news for a good reason instead of a bad one. According to a story shared by a Model S owner and verified by Tesla, the Autonomous features in a Model S likely saved someone’s life. More →
