This iPhone 5C saved its owner from a shotgun blast

This iPhone 5C saved its owner from a shotgun blast

There is a growing trend of YouTube videos where recently released mobile devices, like new iPhones and Samsung Galaxies, get shot by weapons such as sniper rifles and shotguns, all while being filmed with precision cameras, allowing us to see the phones break and shatter in super-detailed slow motion. This iPhone 5C might resemble something from those videos, but it wasn't shot for the sake of entertainment. No, it was shot by someone who was trying to murder the owner.

Microsoft to shoulder all Windows 10 Mobile updates

Microsoft to shoulder all Windows 10 Mobile updates

If there is one thing Android users might get jealous of their Windows Phone counterparts, it would be this. Microsoft will practically be taking charge of all Windows 10 updates on all devices. And yes, that includes mobile phones. This means, in theory, that it will no longer matter what device you're on or what carrier you're subscribed to. You will get those updates more or less at the same time as anyone else, no excuses. In practice, however, it remains to be seen if Microsoft can pull this off.

Man caught making $42K by returning stolen Apple goods

Over the last few years, Apple has greatly improved its efforts to deter thieves from stealing iPhones, from requiring an owner's Apple ID and password to reactivate after wiping, to allowing them to be remotely bricked if reported stolen. But this didn't stop one young UK man who came up with a different way to make money off iPhones, this time by trying to cheat Apple directly. 24-year-old Edward Hornsey would buy broken iPhones from people for cash and return them to Apple replacements, not realizing that he was participating in moving stolen goods.

iPhone 6S rumored to feature 12MP camera with smaller pixels

Every other year, when Apple releases its "S" model iPhones, one of the key features they highlight is an improved camera. It's an important detail that is used to promote the smartphone as a new model, despite having the same overall appearance as previous year's.

One analyst is already reporting that the next iPhone will have a 12 megapixel camera.

Your iPhone 6s may be Rose Gold, cost $10k

Your iPhone 6s may be Rose Gold, cost $10k

Analysts predict that the next iPhone will include a Rose Gold option as well as a higher-priced luxury option similar to Apple Watch Edition. This week's suggestion includes a version of the Apple iPhone 6s - following Apple's traditional every-other-year change from a full edition change to an "s" version. This iPhone 6s would include Rose Gold - though we're not entirely sure at this time whether or not this gold would be an actual gold mix, like the Apple Watch Edition, or if it'll be similar to the Gold option on the iPhone 6 now, without any actual super-expensive gold inside.

Next Apple TV remote tipped to have a touchpad

Next Apple TV remote tipped to have a touchpad

It seems that Apple is taking a U-turn on many of its hardball stances, most of them attributed to the late Steve Jobs: a non-skeumorphic interface, a large screen iPhone, a smartwatch, and probably a huge iPad that might come with a stylus. Now there might be yet another design decision that would go against its previous gospel: an Apple TV remote with a touchpad. Apple has been preaching the simplicity of its remote for years but now it's adding a bit of complexity. At least it's not doing so with a dozen or so buttons.

Hack lets your control GTA V phone with your iPhone

Despite the prevalence of smartphones, few consoles and console games take advantage of this "second screen" available at our fingertips. Some games even have in-game phones that point to the fact, but don't always tie into the real world. While some games actually do use your mobile device as an extension of your game, GTA V isn't one of those. Well, at least not without this latest, still unpublished, hack. YouTube user " DIY Projects Planetleak" published a video showing how he controlled the game's in-game phone using, well, his iPhone.

Smartphone cameras are getting more capable and in each generation, there is a race to compete with more professional and dedicated digital shooters.
