Leaked iPhone 7 casing suggests 4 speakers, larger camera

Leaked iPhone 7 casing suggests 4 speakers, larger camera

Given how we're still quite far away from Apple's usual September affair, it's no surprise that the iPhone 7 rumors that keep piling up don't always stack up with one another, nor do they always make sense. While some of the more "wild" speculation have been offloaded to the iPhone 7 Plus, or Pro, this latest batch of photos give the regular iPhone 7 something crazy of its own. Allegedly from an Italian accessory maker, the photos show the back case of the iPhone 7 bearing four speakers and a vertically stacked camera and flash arrangement.

iPhone 7 fever is beginning to escalate, as more and more leaks and rumors begin to pour out.

Android starts to Tango as iPhone potential wanes

While Apple's next iPhone seems to show little potential for great change, Google announces Android software integration with one of their most forward-thinking projects ever: Tango. Apple has built a massive consumer following with the idea that their iPhone is reliable, secure, and ubiquitous - unavoidably present in the public eye. Google, on the other hand, creates the software that manufacturers of all sorts then use to create their own, unique smartphones. This week, Google announced that they'd be adding Tango software to the next version of Android. This could change the public's expectations for a great smartphone entirely.

Key supplier claims next year’s iPhone will have glass case

It is perhaps a bit too late to save this year's model, but the iPhone next year might be more different than ever before. In addition to possibly going with an OLED screen, the 2017 iPhone is now believed to sport a glass case. Yes, Apple is going back to glass, implied by one of its key suppliers, but it is glass enveloping a metal frame. That design decision is supposedly to meant to visually differentiate the iPhone 8 or 7s, whatever its name will be, from the masses.

iPhone 7 unofficial renders bring all leaks, fears together

We're still a few months away from the anticipated, or dreaded, date, though not the far from WWDC, so naturally we're seeing near final speculation on how the iPhone 7 will look like, both inside and out.

iPhones now require a passcode to be entered once every six days

iPhones now require a passcode to be entered once every six days

One of my favorite features to come to the iPhone was the fingerprint reader. I've had laptops in the past with the feature, but I never really found myself using it very often. However, with a smartphone, it's so nice to just press and hold my finger for a second or two, rather than tapping in a passcode. A recent change to iOS means that you'll have to start using your passcode a little more often than before, though.

WhoApp lets you know who’s calling, before you answer

WhoApp lets you know who’s calling, before you answer

Whenever I get a phone call from a number I don't recognize, I do one of two things. If I'm already at my computer, I'll do a quick Google search to see if I can find some info on the caller before they go to voicemail. If I'm not at my computer, then I just don't bother answering it. However, a new app might just take all of the guesswork out of unknown callers.
