Samsung may have been the poster child for electronics battery fires in 2016 with its Galaxy Note 7, but Apple is taking quick action to ensure that one incident involving an iPhone 7 Plus is just a fluke.

In the video, which has since gone viral and contains NSFW language, Brianna Olivas is in disbelief at what is unfolding before her eyes. According to Olivas, the phone was charging next to her head while she was asleep, until her boyfriend walked over and... Read more...
There has been a weird bug attached the past few iPhone models in which owners of affected devices have complained that their handsets sometimes suddenly turn off for no obvious reason.

  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?

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...

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...

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...
