Not just any repairs, mind you - repairs to their home button. In this home button, a button with Touch ID, is a failsafe that can brick your whole device (or at least disable it) upon software discovery.

iPad Air 3 case hints at 4 speakers, flash, smart connector

Given the attention that Samsung is getting over the Galaxy S7, which we expect to be unveiled at the manufacturer's February 21 Unpacked event, there is naturally a counter flow of talk surrounding Apple's own expected March devices.

Ruffle is the anonymous Snapchat: beware the obvious

There's a brand new app on the block with a perfect name, Ruffle (because it's about to do just that to your feathers). This app was made for image sharing, and that's just what it'll do.
