Given that we’re quickly approaching Spring, next generation iPhone rumors are really starting to pick up steam. The iPhone is coming up on its tenth anniversary, which means that people are expecting something really big from Apple for the fall reveal of the iPhone 8. The latest news to come down from the rumor mill is that the flagship smartphone will include 3D facial recognition technology thanks to the help of a laser scanner. In his research note, JPMorgan analyst Rod Hall says that the scanner will replace Touch ID, and has the potential to be more a secure method of authentication. While... Read more...

Many anticipate that Apple will announce iOS 11, as well as macOS 10.13. It is expected that roughly 6,000 people will turn out at San Jose's McEnery Convention Center.

We are still at least 6 months away from the reveal of Apple’s next generation iPhone, but leaks from the Cupertino, California-based company’s supply chain are already giving us some insight into what to expect. The latest info pouring out regards the suppliers that Apple has selected to produce the iPhone 8’s OLED display. First things first, it’s reported that Samsung has won a secondary $4.3 billion contract to produce OLED screens for the iPhone 8. Samsung has already allegedly been tasked with producing 100 million OLED screens for this year’s launch, but this contract expansion will see... Read more...
  In case you missed it, Apple has jumped feet first into the area of original TV programming, with its debut program being “Planet of the Apps”. But does Apple — which has a pretty solid track record of making desirable smartphones, tablets and computers — have what it takes to produce a compelling TV show? Apple SVP Eddy Cue definitely thinks that Apple has “The Right Stuff”, as he unveiled a trailer for the show last night at the Recode Code Media conference. After watching the trailer below, you wouldn’t be far from the mark if you likened “Planet of the Apps” to a somewhat hollow mashup... Read more...
It looks as though Apple may have just confirmed one of the biggest rumors concerning the upcoming iPhone 8 flagship that will launch this fall. The company this week popped up as a member of the Wireless Power Consortium — the group behind the Qi wireless standard. More than 200 companies belong to the consortium, including some big names in the mobile industry like Samsung, LG, HTC, Qualcomm and Huawei. This confirmation comes just days after Mac Otakara suggested that the iPhone 8 design will return to a glass back (like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s) and will support wireless power delivery. In...

The term "fake news" has been floating around a lot over the past year, largely fueled by events surrounding the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. Following Donald Trump's November victory, the world at large began to wonder if heavily biased or outright made-up new stories were causing real ill effects in the general populous. Even entire companies have been mulling the theory, including Facebook, which has been actively battling the issue in France, where a springtime election is fast approaching. The latest person to chime in on the issue is none other than Apple CEO Tim Cook. He goes so far... Read more...
Diamonds are the traditional tenth anniversary gift, but Apple reportedly has a little something different up its sleeve. Apple is planning on releasing a tenth anniversary iPhone 8 with an OLED display and it will likely cost upward of $1,000 USD. The 5.7-inch iPhone 8 (or iPhone X) will likely look quite different than its predecessors. It is believed that the iPhone 8 will be composed of stainless steel, instead of pricier aluminum. The back of the iPhone 8 may also be made of glass instead of metal (like its iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s predecessors). Apple has been working to remove the physical... Read more...
It didn't take long after President Trump's presidential inauguration for decisions to be made that impacted a lot of people in one fell swoop. That couldn't be more true than with the recent executive order to temporarily bar entry into the US for a series of predominantly Muslim countries, including Syria, Iraq, and Iran. It instantly prevented many from returning home and gave pause for extreme caution to those of an affected citizenship who were planning to leave the country for a trip. For some companies, Trump's executive order to ban people from these countries from entering the United States... Read more...
It is no secret that students and teachers have to shell out a lot of cash for school supplies. Education customers, however, can now get a major discount on some rather tempting video and music editing software. Apple is currently selling its “Pro Apps Bundle for Education” for $199.99 USD.According to Apple the “Pro Apps Bundle for Education is a collection of five industry-leading apps from Apple that deliver powerful creative tools for video editors and musicians.” It includes Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4, and MainStage 3. Final Cut Pro X is usually $299 by itself and... Read more...
Just a couple of weeks ago, we wrote about the Israeli security firm Cellebrite, and how it suffered a major data breach. After the information began to trickle out, it seemed like no real damage was done. Cellebrite itself said that what leaked was an old, irrelevant backup. A new discovery, however, questions that answer. If you're not familiar with Cellebrite, it was the firm that the U.S. government hired to break into an iPhone 5c to aide with investigation of the December 2015 San Bernardino terror attack. Apple at the time refused to help crack the phone, so Cellebrite was brought in, and... Read more...
In mid-2016, Apple set off a chain of events that leads us to the current situation when it comes to Thunderbolt-enabled displays targeted at Mac users. The company discontinued its 27-inch Thunderbolt Display in June, leaving Mac users without a first-party monitor to connect to their machines. Later in the year, Apple announced that it had partnered with LG to launch the LG-branded UltraFine 5K and UltraFine 4K Displays. However, users of the former have discovered that having a Wi-Fi router nearby can cause some undesirable behavior for both the UltraFine 5K and a connected Mac. A... Read more...
A common criticism of the iPhone 7 is that Apple did not innovate enough with the design or overall set of features. It is an incremental upgrade from the iPhone 6s that is better in a lot of ways and faster, but not very exciting. True as those criticisms are, it did not stop people from rushing out and buying the iPhone 7. In fact, demand for the iPhone 7 is how Apple was able to outsell Samsung in the smartphone category during the fourth quarter of 2016. Market research firm IDC says the holiday quarter capped off what was another positive year of smartphone growth even though there were concerns... Read more...
Apple’s notebook computers aren’t exactly known as energy hogs — well, if we toss aside the Consumer Reports battery fiasco that was attributed to a Safari bug — but it’s always appreciated to eek as much battery life as possible out of a machine. Given that Apple has full control over the hardware and software stack of its products, it has always had an advantage when it comes to optimizing for power efficiency. A new report indicates that Apple is taking an additional step in its efforts to increase Mac battery life by developing a custom ARM chip that will handle low-power tasks, easing the... Read more...
