iPhone 7 Plus Gold with dual-lens camera laid bare in new photo

iPhone 7 Plus Gold with dual-lens camera laid bare in new photo

The iPhone 7 will be available in four colors if past leaks are to be believed, and one of those colors is said to be “Gold.” We’ve seen the gold iPhone 7 in bits and pieces in leaked shots over past weeks, and now three new photos have surfaced laying it all bare. Both the front and the rear sides of the iPhone 7 are shown in the photos, as well as one shot showing off what is said to be a dummy unit of the iPhone 7 Plus with a dual-lens camera on the back.

iOS App Store predicted to host 5 million apps by 2020

iOS App Store predicted to host 5 million apps by 2020

Earlier this year, Apple announced that the iOS App Store is now home to two million apps. That's an absurd number in its own right, but a new report from app analytics site Sensor Tower predicts that number could more than double to 5 million apps by 2020. That's a pretty huge prediction when you consider it took the App Store eight years to reach its two million milestone.

Far from a failure, iPhone SE is Apple’s sleeper hit

Far from a failure, iPhone SE is Apple’s sleeper hit

The iPhone SE has its fair share of critics, but those negative voices have done little to impact its popularity. According to a new report from Kantar, a research firm, the iPhone SE was Great Britain’s “top selling device” in the quarter that reached its end this past June. The iPhone SE barely beat out the iPhone 6s, holding 9.2-percent of sales in the region versus the iPhone 6s smartphone's 9.1-percent. The EU5 saw iOS growth during the quarter, as well.

September 7 said to be the iPhone 7 release date

September 7 said to be the iPhone 7 release date

All signs may point to Apple's new smartphone coming in September, but just when exactly is the iPhone 7 release date? Anyone with even a passing interest in mobile is keeping at least one eye on rumors around the Cupertino firm's newest handset, with tidbits like dual cameras and, for the first time, a move away from a physical home button all among the whispers, but the big question is always around when we can see the iPhone 7 for real.

After iPhone 7 release, a glass iPhone 7 Pro for 2017

After iPhone 7 release, a glass iPhone 7 Pro for 2017

We’ll probably be seeing Apple’s new iPhone next month, but speculation is already looking far into the future, and that future may include a glass casing. Foxconn has been tipped in an effort to develop its own glass phone casings, something sources say it has been working on for the past year or so to perfect in time for the 2017 iPhones; it is also reportedly developing its own high-end OLED technologies thanks to its Sharp acquisition in a bid to take on Samsung and China's Biel Crystal.

eBay for iOS adds Touch ID support and ‘One Time Password’

eBay has updated its mobile apps, and while the Android update is pretty small (it just adds Android Wear support), the iOS update adds a couple of big features: support for Touch ID and a new one time password feature. Both features aim to improve the app’s overall security, and the Touch ID support in particular has long been requested by users. The one time password option will also be coming to the desktop and Android versions of the service.

New Pokemon Go update : Sightings brings back footprints… sort of

New Pokemon Go update : Sightings brings back footprints… sort of

This morning Niantic released an update to Pokemon GO which changed several very important elements in the game. This update was for both Android and iOS for iPhone and iPad, and users should expect to see footprints returning to the game soon. Not the same footprints as they saw when the game was launched - not a number of steps according to how close to or far away from a Pokemon the user was. This new update for Pokemon GO has two sections - Sightings and Nearby.

New iPhone 7 release date feature promises a giant launch

New iPhone 7 release date feature promises a giant launch

The new iPhone 7 coming later this year will likely be one of Apple's biggest launches ever. Not just because the "tick" year of Apple's tick-tock releases is generally the bigger year in sales, but because this version of the iPhone looks and acts different from the last one. While the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were bigger than the iPhone 5s, and the iPhone 5 was bigger than the iPhone 4s, functionality has been largely the same since the beginning of the device line. Today a new feature rumor has been reinforced.

Google Photos video ad pokes fun at 16GB iPhone

Google Photos video ad pokes fun at 16GB iPhone

Smartphones these days, even the lower spec ones, are capable of taking high resolution (though not always high quality) photos. That means those photos take up more space on the smartphone's storage. And when you have a measly 16 GB of internal memory, with no microSD card option, you will inevitably run out of space. That is precisely the point that Google is trying to make in a rare and admittedly amusing Google Photos video ad. And it is aiming its guns at, what else, the 16 GB iPhone.

iPhone 7 release date nears as new video details Plus

iPhone 7 release date nears as new video details Plus

Apple's iPhone 7 - as we assume it'll be called - grows ever nearer to its release date, and all along its path are littered leaks. What we're seeing today is a video which shows mock-ups (really, really good mock-ups) of the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Pro, and iPhone 6s. This video hypothesizes the idea that there could just be an iPhone 6 SE - much like we've seen with the iPhone SE on the market today, using the body of the iPhone 4 and the brains of the iPhone 6. Three different colors are also shown.

Apple’s Lightning EarPods revealed in second video

Apple’s Lightning EarPods revealed in second video

We've quickly reached the point where rumors and leaks about new versions of Apple's EarPods headphones are just as prevalent as those about the upcoming headphone jack-less iPhone 7 itself. Over the past few weeks, there's been several questionable images claiming to show a new pair of wired Earpods that use a Lightning connector instead of a standard 3.5mm plug. Then a video surfaced revealing a fairly authentic looking, functional pair of the headphones. Now a second video has been released, offering the best look at a pair of Lightning Earpods yet.

Skiplagged Pokemon tracker leads pack of GO update map tools

Today we're taking a look at the latest batch of Pokemon GO tools for modifying the game experience intended by Niantic. To be clear, we do not endorse the use of any of these tools, we're reporting the facts in the evolving phenomenon that is Pokemon GO. We'll be getting more into the ethics of Pokemon GO journalism later - for now, let's have a peek at what Skiplagged's tools are all about - and have a peek at a few more tools for mapping and organizing Pokemon GO assets as well.
