Belkin just fixed Apple’s big headphone jack problem

There's a dongle/adapter out there made by Belkin, a piece of equipment that's ready to engage with all the iPhones. This device is called the "3.5 mm Audio + Charge RockStar", and it comes with its own way to correct and/or fix the feature many headphone-wearing fans of Apple struggled to wrap their mind around since this time last year. This Belkin accessory plugs into the iPhone and allows the user to plug in both a charging USB and a standard pair of headphones.

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.

Galaxy Note 8 Sale Uber Alles OR Why I’ll wait for iPhone X

Galaxy Note 8 Sale Uber Alles OR Why I’ll wait for iPhone X

Both Samsung and Apple have new smartphones out for sale today, and I've got some opinions about which one I'd choose. If I wanted to pay the smallest amount of money for a top-notch 2017 smartphone (not considering the Google Pixel), I'd have to go with the iPhone 8, which is around $700, on pre-order starting today. If I wanted the most impressive hero phone this year and I needed to order right this minute, I'd choose the Galaxy Note 8.

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. The news means iPhone X owners - along with those using the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus - will have a long list of locations where they can get a cable-free recharge, including the popular coffee shop chain and the dashboard cubbies of select Chevrolet, Cadillac, and Buick cars. Turns out, when it comes to wireless charging pads, Powermat has something special going on under the table.

The iPhone X demands faith

The iPhone X demands faith

The "ten" in iPhone X isn't a reference to the last decade of Apple smartphones. It's a reboot: the start of ten years more. For Apple fans, that's unsurprisingly prompted no small amount of excitement. For those less swayed by the Cupertino vision, things like the $999 price tag that comes along with the iPhone X have triggered skepticism. Turns out, they're probably both right.

iPhone 8 and X have a sort-of secret weapon in NFC

Both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X have a new feature that Apple says doesn't come with any previous iPhone - for now. This feature is an opening up of the hardware that's already in quite a few iPhones from the past few years, a piece of hardware that allows Apple Pay to function. I'm speaking, of course, of the iPhone's NFC reader.

iPhone 8 hands-on: not quite X, better than 7s

iPhone 8 hands-on: not quite X, better than 7s

The iPhone 8 is what we expected to be the iPhone 7s - but just a little bit better. Or a whole lot better, if you're Apple making the case for skipping this year's expected "s". The iPhone X, on the other hand, has a few innovations that make it a monster compared to previous iPhone models - even compared to the iPhone 8. Or is it?

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".

iPhone X release date and pricing details

iPhone X release date and pricing details

With the iPhone X's reveal today, Apple turned the iPhone pricing structure on its head. We've grown accustomed to there being two iPhones at the top of the totem poll, then a couple or a few more just below. Before now, that meant the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were at the top, followed by the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus below, followed by the iPhone SE. With the iPhone X , there's a new monster in town.
