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 →
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 →
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.

Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are set to be unveiled next week during an event expected to take place on Wednesday, September 7th. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already knew that. In fact, you likely knew that even if you have been living under a rock. Nothing in the tech world garners anywhere near as much attention as a new iPhone launch, and this year has been the same as previous years despite the ongoing storyline among some blogs that suggest Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are going to be “boring.”
Well, boring or not — we’re thinking “not,” and we explained why in a recent post — Apple’s new iPhone 7 lineup will be the biggest launch of the year, and a steady stream of leaks have painted a pretty clear picture of what we can expect. Now, on top of everything else, a new leak may have just revealed official specs for Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. More →
Ladies and gentlemen, we are now just over one week away from seeing Apple announce its next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones. It’s been a wild ride leading up to Apple’s official unveiling event, just as the case has been in previous years. Leak after leak painted a picture of Apple’s new iPhone 7 lineup and while there have been a few discrepancies here and there, we pretty much know exactly what to expect at this point.
Of course, there are still a few mysteries that have yet to be solved, and a new set of leaked iPhone 7 photos reminds us of the biggest one we have left. More →
There’s absolutely no question that T-Mobile has singlehandedly reshaped the wireless landscape in the United States over the past few years. Led by its outspoken CEO John Legere, the scrappy carrier has introduced a string of new initiatives that have left its larger rivals chasing it to compete. Is it working? T-Mobile is outgrowing all of its rivals, having even blown past Sprint recently to become the third-largest wireless carrier in America.
Of course, there have been a few bumps along the road for T-Mobile, and its most recent one came just under two weeks ago when the carrier announced that it was killing off data plans by offering all users unlimited data with the new T-Mobile One plan. While the new plan is certainly a great deal for some subscribers, others complained that it would make their service far more expensive. What’s more, many were troubled by missing features and pricey add-ons.
So, despite having killed off data plans just two weeks ago, T-Mobile on Monday introduced a brand new data plan called T-Mobile One Plus. More →
Truth be told, no one really knows whether or not features like “Night Mode” actually help you sleep better at night. Although the jury is still out, there’s no question that reducing the amount of blue light cast be your smartphone’s display is easier on the eyes in the dark. Apple introduced its “Night Shift” feature in iOS 9, allowing users to automatically or manually cut out a configurable amount of blue light from their screens. Google’s newly released Android 7.0 Nougat operating system has a similar feature baked in, but for some reason Google decided to keep the feature hidden in its new release.
Of course, you knew that third-party developers Android developers wouldn’t let this sweet new feature stay hidden for long. More →

Okay seriously, this is getting a little bit ridiculous now. Apple used to stick to a two-week release schedule for its iOS beta software, but the company just released iOS 10 beta 8 and iOS 10 public beta 7 because… well… why not? iOS 10 beta 7 and public beta 6 were released just seven days ago, so we were clearly due for new builds.

Bloggers have had a field day over the past week writing about how Pokemon Go is dead because it’s beginning to sink on Apple’s top free iPhone downloads chart in the App Store. Of course, those bloggers don’t really understand how the app market works, do they? Top-grossing games are never top-ranked downloads, as we explained in a recent article. What Pokemon Go had initially achieved was completely unprecedented, and no one who knows anything at all about the app industry would expect the game to remain at the top of the free downloads chart and the top-grossing apps chart.
Pokemon Go is still taking the world by storm and people love trekking out to hunt down Pokemon all around their areas. Of course, the game is hardly perfect and players still have a bunch of complaints. The good news is that we found a nifty little free app that solves what is easily one of Pokemon Go players’ biggest problems with the app. The bad news is that it only works on Android devices.

This past Monday we shared a video that showed a performance test pitting Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Note 7 against Apple’s year-old iPhone 6s. Instead of relying on benchmark testing to compare the two phones, this particular test used a different method intended to compare their performance during real-world usage. The test wasn’t scientific by any means, but the unique format actually does to a pretty decent job of comparing two phones in a real-world setting. Benchmark tests, after all, really only test the capabilities of a smartphone when it’s pushed to its limits. How often do you push your phone to its limits in the real world?
In this aforementioned performance test, Apple’s year-old iPhone positively clobbered the brand-spanking-new Galaxy Note 7. Apple fans and Android fans have all been quite vocal about the results since then, but does this test even really matter? More →
