New iPad may have this strange feature in 2018

Apple released plans today for a tablet which had a very strange, but not entirely unheard of, backside feature. We've seen devices that have the ability to make use of a back-facing touch panel before, but never exactly like this.

Civilization VI for iPad is here, but you won’t buy it

Civilization VI - the latest game in the immensely popular Civilization series and one of our best games of 2016 - is arriving on iPad today.

Loot boxes - variously known as loot crates or prize crates - are virtual items which are bought without the purchaser knowing exactly what could be inside.

Talk of a "planned obsolescence" strategy had re-emerged earlier this week, when benchmarking firm Geekbench waded into discussion about whether older devices - like the iPhone 6s, first released in 2015 - were having their processors artificially limited by iOS.

Amazon starts Apple TV sales after two year standoff

Amazon has begun selling the Apple TV again, ending a two year standoff between the retailer and Apple, though supplies of the set-top box are already constrained.

Pokemon GO AR+ update gives iPhone Trainers an edge

Pokemon GO is adopting Apple's ARKit, with an incoming update to the augmented reality game promising a much better experience on iPhone and iPad.

iPhone slowdown blamed on controversial fix for aging batteries

Older iPhones getting unexpectedly slower could be down aging batteries rather than iOS inefficiency, with Apple said to be artificially throttling handsets to prolong runtimes.
