This iPhone 8 leak has the biggest hidden feature yet

This morning a set of images leaked with iPhone 8's name on them - figuratively, of course, but still - this leads to the next big mystery. The next phone from Apple will very likely be part of a set of three, the other two set in the standard line of phones as iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. But the leak today suggests that the iPhone 8 - or whatever Apple ends up calling it - will be coiled for the strike as the most unique iPhone yet.

Apple kills iPod nano and shuffle

Both the iPod touch models left in this backwards, messed-up world have been given boosts to storage while the classic iPod nano and iPod shuffle have been discontinued.

With the next set of iPhones, we'll get a span of prices and functionality, starting with a device that's very similar to what we've got right now (in stores right this minute).

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is starring in his most adrenaline-pumping, high-octane short film and he has teamed up with the best co-star ever: Siri.
