This iPhone 7 leak will only enrage camera-bump haters

This iPhone 7 leak will only enrage camera-bump haters

As we get closer to the expected reveal of the iPhone 7, the leaks showing us what could be on the way seem to be getting more and more frequent. Like one of the more recent leaks, this newest one is again showing off the backside of a supposed iPhone 7, so it's not giving us anything we haven't seen before. Rather, it's reinforcing the notion that the iPhone 7 could look a lot like its predecessors, camera-bump and all.

Siri is the star of macOS Sierra

Siri is the star of macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra may not be short on new features, but the biggest change from OS X is that you're now encouraged to talk to your Mac. Siri's arrival on the desktop is more than just an extension of the now-familiar virtual assistant from her previous roles on the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, however.

I won’t install the iOS 10 public beta: This is why

I know how temptation feels; most of us feel it too. The latest, must-have beta arrives - in this case, Apple's iOS 10, several months before its full release this fall - and before you know it you're hitting the download button and eagerly installing it onto your precious device. Before you get too carried away, though, stop: there is danger ahead.

iOS 10 public beta rolls out to Apple Beta Software testers

Hot on the heels of the release of the macOS Sierra public beta, Apple is giving the same treatment to iOS 10. The company has announced that the long-awaited public beta of iOS 10 is now available to download to those who are part of the Apple Beta Software Program. iOS 10 has been the domain of developers for about a month now, but that's all changing today as the operating system has been deemed stable enough to roll out to regular consumers eager for an early look.

Pokemon GO tips and mistakes I’ve made playing

Pokemon GO tips and mistakes I’ve made playing

Before Pokemon GO launched, I had the opportunity to test the game extensively. I played it as often as I could. That was my first mistake. I've found myself diving in to the game headfirst, attempting to take my entire region by storm - which should be easy since I've only seen one other trainer here in Bismarck, North Dakota taking over Pokemon Gyms. But I found out quickly that I needed to take this experience more in stride. And I needed to stop playing Pokemon GO in the car, immediately.

iPhone 7 shows off its backside in leaked image

iPhone 7 shows off its backside in leaked image

We may be one step closer to figuring out what the iPhone 7 will look like, as a new leaked image apparently shows off the rear housing of what will be Apple's latest and (presumably) greatest. While there have been many leaks surrounding the iPhone 7, this image shows us what might be a fully assembled device. The only problem is that whoever snapped the picture didn't flip the phone around to give us a look at the front.

Rejoice! iPhone 7 tipped to have at least 32GB of storage

Rejoice! iPhone 7 tipped to have at least 32GB of storage

Apple is set to double the storage of its entry-level iPhone, with the iPhone 7 expected to kick off at 32GB rather than the much-criticized 16GB of the current model. The increase will address increasingly vocal complaints that 16GB is simply too small in an age of 4K video recording: after all, you can only fit around half an hour of 4K resolution footage on a 16GB iPhone 6s before the device is full, and that's assuming you don't download any other apps, games, or media.

Pokemon Go release date breakdown

Pokemon Go release date breakdown

Today we're having a brief look at what's possible for Pokemon GO for Android and iOS, launching on a date set within the next month. Before we go too far, we'll do some myth busting: there's been an image floating around that suggests July 6th will be the date of launch, supposedly "leaked" by IGN. That's not accurate. The image shows a feature story which will appear on Snapchat - the game will not be launching tomorrow. Instead, we've got some clues that may lead to the final date.

iOS 10 will make it easier to become an organ donor

iOS 10 will make it easier to become an organ donor

There are a number of ways to become an organ donor if you live in the US, but Apple and Donate Life America are looking to make the process even easier in iOS 10. In a joint press release today, the two organizations announced they were teaming up to bring organ donor registration to the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system. Apple will apparently be adding the ability to sign up as an organ, tissue, and eye donor to iOS 10's Health app when the OS becomes available this autumn.
