Apple iPhone 5se poses with the 5, iPad Air 3 coming too

Once upon a time, Apple was famous, if not notorious, for being able to keep much of its secrets under wraps until the appointed time of product reveals. Nowadays it suffers the same fate as any other major OEM in terms of near-accurate leaks. Like this latest photo of the iPhone 6c 5se, which is seen side by side the iPhone 5, both smartphones flaunting their petite 4-inch screens. The iPhone 5se is rumored to come in late March or early April, and it won't be coming along. The iPad Air 3 might be arriving with it.

New iPhone 5se details tipped for Spring release

New iPhone 5se details tipped for Spring release

Apple is tipped to be releasing a new iPhone this spring, well before the traditional timeframe for a smartphone in the company's main line. This device would be called the iPhone 5se, coming with a design that's not entirely unlike the iPhone 6, sized closer to an iPhone 5, and coming with Live Photos to boot. This device would also work with the same cameras as delivered in the iPhone 6 (not the iPhone 6s). This new iPhone would likely fit in place below the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, replacing the ghost of the iPhone 5s in the process.

This is how much Google paid to keep its search bar on iPhone

Android revenue and profits wasn't the only thing about Google that Oracle's court documents spilled. Aside from the billions that Google has so far made off its mobile platform, one part of the document, now gone and officially "never existed", also revealed that Google paid a hefty sum, to the tune of $1 billion, to Apple in order to retain its position as the search provider in the latter's search bar on the iPhone. Plus, the document also revealed a revenue sharing between the two companies that may have embarrassed both.

Here are the top 10 apps of 2015 (most downloaded, most used)

For both iOS and Android, combined, the number one ranking app in the world for the year 2015 was WhatsApp Messenger.

After that you've got YouTube, UC Browser, and Snapchat.

Apple blocks (some) Samsung phone sales in court case

Apple blocks (some) Samsung phone sales in court case

In a court case that seems to have been going on since the dawn of time, Apple and Samsung remain at legal war with one another. As a result of that case - the same one we've been talking about for several years - Apple has won an injunction to block the sales of several Samsung phones. Lucky for Samsung, the lot of these phones are... essentially out of rotation. There's almost no possible way you'd be buying these phones in a store today anyway, and if you were, it probably wouldn't be direct from Samsung.

That was what Twitter user Chase Fromm was doing when he came across a reference to "LiFiCapability" among the other hardware and software capabilities that iOS 9.1 advertises. This hints that Apple might be planning to introduce support for that Li-Fi wireless communication technology sometime in the near future of iOS and iPhones.

Will better speakers redeem iPhone 7’s missing headphone jack?

Depending on who you speak to, the idea of an iPhone 7 without a headphone jack is either a travesty or the logical next step for Apple. Cupertino lips are still sealed as to whether the upcoming iOS flagship will indeed do away with the familiar 3.5mm socket - and throw a huge accessory market into disarray in the process - but a newly-spotted patent could detail some of the payoff.

Vimble gimbal makes your iPhone steady even when you’re not

Smartphone cameras have ome a long way since the paltry yet faithful 2MP shooters of old. But try as they might, there are still some things that these mobile devices can't do perfectly, like stabilization. For that, you'll need an honest to goodness three-axis stabilizer. That or you'll need a gimbal like DelTron's Vimble for the iPhone, which, together with the ViCam app, not only promises superb stabilization, but also great control over your iPhone camera's functionality.
