iPhone 8 Review Round-up: No waiting for X

iPhone 8 Review Round-up: No waiting for X

Early iPhone 8 reviews are in, and it would appear that Apple's reveal of the iPhone X has taken a toll on reviewer's expectations. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are indeed slightly-better versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and in years past that'd garner a hearty "the best just got better" from the review circuit. But because Apple's strategy this season was to reveal an even better phone as well in the iPhone X, things are a little bit different.

Google Pixel 2 will be ‘just Android’ – and that’s good

On the 4th of October, the 2nd Google Pixel phone will be revealed. It will certainly be a phone, and certainly it'll run Android. The vast majority of those people the Pixel 2 will be available to won't know or care for much beyond that. But for everyone reading this article, there's another layer of depth to the Pixel that many people won't appreciate.

Pokken Tournament DX review: Pokemon brawler goes portable

Pokken Tournament DX review: Pokemon brawler goes portable

Even though I consider myself a pretty big Pokemon fan - I’ve played every mainline game since Red and Blue and to this day can still sing the PokeRap (it’s like riding a bike, honestly) - Pokken Tournament evaded me when it was originally launched on the Wii U. With Pokken Tournament DX, I’ve been given another shot at experiencing the game, so how does Nintendo’s Pokemon fighting title hold up in the jump to the Switch?

Yes, the iPhone X supports wireless charging at Starbucks

Your iPhone X can get a wireless power boost while you top-up your caffeine levels at Starbucks, with Powermat confirming it'll upgrade its public charging pads to support Apple's preferred Qi standard.

Turns out, when it comes to wireless charging pads, Powermat has something special going on under the table.

iPhone X’s creepiest features are its most compelling

iPhone X’s creepiest features are its most compelling

I don't think I've ever been in the midst of a conversation and thought "what this discussion needs is my opinion stated by a perfectly-animated poop emoji," though I concede I'm a sample of one. There's also been doubt among some I've spoken to post-Apple iPhone X event that you couldn't do Animojis with a regular front-facing camera and facial tracking. After all, Snapchat has cemented its relevance, in part, by doing just that across pretty much any smartphone.

iPhone X hands-on : Apple’s OLED flagship up close

iPhone X hands-on : Apple’s OLED flagship up close

Familiar, and yet so very different. That's my first impression of the iPhone X, Apple's brand new flagship iOS smartphone, revealed today at the Steve Jobs Theater in California. First things first, arguably the most important thing if you don't want to look stupid when you walk into your nearest Apple Store: it's pronounced "iPhone Ten", not "iPhone X".

2019 Audi A8 Level 3 autonomy first-drive: Chasing the perfect ‘jam’

2019 Audi A8 Level 3 autonomy first-drive: Chasing the perfect ‘jam’

Most of the time I'll do my absolute best to avoid a traffic jam, but the 2019 Audi A8 makes them oddly appealing. Forget "Artificial Intelligence": the AI we're talking about today is Audi Intelligence. What exactly does this mean, and why should we care? We as a collective of road-users are going to need to be much more sensitive to the fact that there are cars on the road not being driven by human beings. Instead, we're increasingly going to see advanced driving assistance software taking the wheel, like the new Audi AI traffic jam pilot, the world’s first Level 3 automated driving system in a production vehicle.

iPhone 8 is iPhone X: Apple’s big secret spills

iPhone 8 is iPhone X: Apple’s big secret spills

What's in a name? When it's the much-discussed new iPhone flagship, the answer is "plenty"; there's been no shortage of speculation about what the upcoming "iPhone 8" will actually be called when Apple reveals it next week. So far the consensus has been on iPhone 8 being the company's name of choice, but a new leak courtesy of some judicious digging through the latest iOS 11 golden master (GM) build.

Apple iPhone 8 event: the announcement schedule (or what we expect)

The Apple Event on October 12th will include the products shown in this article in the order they appear - or so we expect. Due to the inordinate amount of leaks surrounding Apple's upcoming products, not least of all the next-gen iPhone 8 (or whatever it'll be called), the following predictions can be made. I'm also ordering the product announcements below according to patterns Apple's exhibited with past releases at major events over the past decade.
