iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus get throttling “feature” in iOS 12.1

iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus get throttling “feature” in iOS 12.1

If you thought that Apple has put its throttling scandal behind it, especially after the million euro fine it was slapped with in Italy for that. And yet here it is again, pushing that same “performance management feature” not to older iPhones but to last year’s models. This change, again unannounced and unknown to users, was silently included in the recent 12.1 update to iOS 12, putting the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus on the same footing as older iPhones.

2018 iPhone headphone jack dongles tipped axed

2018 iPhone headphone jack dongles tipped axed

Analysts suggested this week that 2018 iPhones of all sorts might well do away with in-box dongles. That means no more headphone jack at all for the average user - not unless they want to pay extra for said dongle purchased separately. This would be the first time Apple released an iPhone with no in-box access to a headphone jack since the dawn of the iPhone.

The iPhone price gamble is looking more and more prescient

The iPhone price gamble is looking more and more prescient

Apple's grand strategy to coast through the smartphone slowdown by selling more expensive phones has paid off, with Q3 2018 proving there's more to the bottom line than raw device numbers.

New iPhone X leaks in hands-on videos

New iPhones for 2018 appeared in leaked videos this morning from sources that have their hands on dummy models. This wasn't the first time this sort of thing happened in the the last few years, but we're a bit surprised it's continued. What ever happened to the days when a smartphone didn't appear until the day it was announced by the company that had it manufactured? Is the fear of god gone from the lower ranks?

This morning a set of photos of iPhones appeared on the web, a new set of iPhones for 2018. These devices appeared in two sizes with new details - with notches on both displays.

iPhone X discontinued? Not so fast

iPhone X discontinued? Not so fast

News from analysts today suggests the iPhone X is about to be discontinued - but WAIT. Don't flip out too quick about this mind-blowing bit of possible future news from Apple - for several reasons. First, it's not news yet, it's analysis - until Apple says so, the iPhone X remains in production. Second, even if the iPhone X is "discontinued," that does not mean we're going to be losing the notch any time soon. That notch isn't going anywhere quick.
