There's no doubt it's the game of summer, and maybe even of 2016. It makes sense then that Siri, Apple's virtual assistant on iOS, even has knowledge of Pokemon Go, as it's been discovered that it will make a number of humorous responses when asked about the game.

iPhone 7 second speaker reportedly fake: Symmetry not stereo

Apple's reported decision to drop the iPhone 7 headphone socket would, so the leaks suggested, soften the blow by delivering more powerful sound from the handset overall, but new information suggests that may not actually be the case.

iOS App Store predicted to host 5 million apps by 2020

Earlier this year, Apple announced that the iOS App Store is now home to two million apps. That's an absurd number in its own right, but a new report from app analytics site Sensor Tower predicts that number could more than double to 5 million apps by 2020. That's a pretty huge prediction when you consider it took the App Store eight years to reach its two million milestone.

The iPhone SE barely beat out the iPhone 6s, holding 9.2-percent of sales in the region versus the iPhone 6s smartphone's 9.1-percent. The EU5 saw iOS growth during the quarter, as well.
