What is “Today at Apple”?

Apple's newest plan to reinvigorate their customer community is a program called "Today at Apple". It's not a software program, but a sort of "modern-day down square" held at Apple Stores. In an expansion of the already-active events that take place on a smaller scale, Teaching sessions, interactive experiences, and demonstrations are set to be held at every single Apple Store in the world, starting in May of 2017.

A delay in the release date for iPhone 8 (or iPhone X, iPhone Edition), has been tipped this week by analysts. While the reveal date for an Apple Event hasn't been pinpointed yet, it's expected that it'll appear somewhere in early September.

Uber tracked iPhones even after wiping, until Cook stopped it

Uber tracked iPhones even after wiping, until Cook stopped it

Once considered a darling and pioneer of the still nascent ride-hailing industry, Uber has quickly become the villain of a still ongoing drarma. It's the typical story of a successful company willing to do anything and everything to stay that the top, even when that means breaking the rules. And break the rules Uber did, according to this new report. Uber has allegedly been "fingerprinting" iPhones, identifying them even after they have been fully erased. It was a gross violation of Apple's privacy policies and a practice that went on for almost a year until Apple CEO Tim Cook put a stop to it.

iPhone 8 dummy model pics surface, confirm features so far

The all-screen smartphone wars have begun. LG and Samsung already have their guns ablazing and, in just a few months, so too will Apple. And because there's still a lot of time before that happens, there's plenty of time for leaks of what the iPhone 8 could look like. This latest photo dump supposedly doesn't come from mere schematics. According to Benjamin Geskin, Foxconn confirmed that these are CNC dummy models of what we'll soon gawk at as the iPhone 8, in all its shiny, glassy glory.

Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 8: Do I buy Samsung now, or wait for Apple?

Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 8: Do I buy Samsung now, or wait for Apple?

After my Galaxy S8 review, of the most frequent questions I've been asked is whether people should buy the new Samsung now, or wait until the new iPhone is revealed later in 2017. Samsung deserves some serious kudos for what it's done with the latest Galaxy flagship. Not only is the design on a par with the best we've seen from Apple's smartphone team, top-notch specs like the beautiful curved Super AMOLED screen make it just as pleasing to use as to hold.

Apple threatened Uber with iPhone ban over privacy cheat

Apple threatened Uber with iPhone ban over privacy cheat

Controversial tech exec Travis Kalanick was forced into a face-off with Tim Cook, a new profile of the Uber founder claims, after Apple discovered the ridesharing app had flouted privacy rules. Kalanick's company has repeatedly made headlines over the past year for a number of reasons, ranging from frustrated drivers, arguments with city administrators and legacy cab firms, over-ambitious autonomous car testing, and allegations of harassment in the workplace. Indeed, Kalanick's ambition almost saw him lose his entire iPhone audience.

iPhone 8 images match previous Touch ID schematics

iPhone 8 images match previous Touch ID schematics

Earlier this week we saw an iPhone 8 leak which suggested that the Touch ID sensor would migrate to the back of Apple's next phone. Today we're looking at a set of renders which make the exact same case for the smartphone. The possibility of one source rendering images based on the other is real - but the possibility that they're independently sourced is also quite likely.

Plastc burns backers for $9m as smart credit card is declined

Three years ago the folks at Plastc came together to make a smart credit card - now that dream is over. A note sent to potential users, investors, and everyone in-between, was sent out this week.

Apple AR glasses possibly confirmed by a leaked report

Did Apple's augmented reality prototype accidentally injure one employee's eyes? That's one potential explanation being juggled for a mysterious incident report at the iPhone company, after a cache of such filings were inadvertently leaked. The handiwork of an Environment Health and Safety contractor, the document was presumably intended for internal eyes only, but was mistakenly distributed first among employees and then snuck out to Gizmodo.
