Pokemon GO: Eevee evolutions and Special Items update

Pokemon GO: Eevee evolutions and Special Items update

The most common question asked by Pokemon GO users since the dawn of the game involves Eevee. How do I evolve Eevee to get the evolution I want? Originally we'd been relying on three names to get each of the three different Eeveelutions - now there's a couple more. Our most recently updated list of Eeveelutions includes Umbreon and Espeon, and we've got some news on the "how to get Special Items" for evolutions as well.

iPhone 7 and Pixel owners need this Lightroom Mobile HDR update

Adobe has given iPhone, Google Pixel, and Samsung Galaxy S7 photographers a must-have reason to get Lightroom, with a new HDR mode that promises DSLR-style results. The update to Lightroom Mobile - version 2.7 for iOS, and version 2.3 for Android - released today includes a raw HDR capture mode, for high-dynamic range photos that should far exceed what the native HDR feature in the default camera app can deliver. However, not everyone can enjoy it.

Pokemon GO trading update is almost here

A Pokemon GO Trading update, one of three major upgrades to Pokemon GO for the year 2017, has been revealed to SlashGear this week. In addition to a strong indication of this notion from our own anonymous source with information on the subject, an interview with Niantic this week seems to seal the deal. In the interview published this week, Niantic suggests that the trading update is indeed scheduled to be released this year, and will include user trading within a certain set proximity - real life up close and personal deals, that is to say.

Pokemon GO: all the updates shared by Niantic CEO this week

Niantic CEO John Hanke spoke at Mobile World Congress today about Pokemon GO with a brief barrage of facts. He began his chat speaking about how unexpected the game's success was.

iPhone 8 will reportedly have curved OLED, use USB-C instead of Lightning

Get ready for another report about the iPhone 8, because The Wall Street Journal has published a doozy today. According to the paper, the next iPhone will sport a curved OLED display, though we've heard some kind of variant of that claim frequently over the past few months. What's really surprising about the WSJ's report is the claim that Apple will ditch Lightning with the iPhone 8 in favor of USB-C.

Apple backtracks on third-party iPhone screen repairs stance

Apple backtracks on third-party iPhone screen repairs stance

While Apple is still fighting proposed “right to self-repair” on one hand, it is somewhat softening its stance on unauthorized repairs on the other hand. It isn’t a full U-turn, mind, but one that only covers a very specific and limited case. Previously, Apple would flat out declare that an iPhone screen repaired or replaced by a third-party fully voids the phone’s warranty, no questions asked. A leaked internal memo to Apple Stores and authorized service providers now instruct them to honor the warranty but under certain conditions only.

iOS 10.2.1 fixes most, but not all, iPhone 6 sudden shutdowns

A couple of months back, owners of older iPhone models going as far back as the iPhone 6 have started reporting sudden inexplicable switching off of their phones. More than a minor inconvenience, users had to scramble to plug their iPhones in before they can switch them on again. Now Apple is proudly sharing that it has all but eradicated the issue through the iOS 10.2.1 update that is already installed on about half the affected devices.

iPhone 8 wireless charging only the start: 5 Apple teams reportedly involved

The iPhone 8 may embrace wireless charging, but Apple is reportedly going all-in with developing cable-free solutions, with claims that five different teams at the company are all working on the technology. The absence of wireless charging has long been a point of criticism about the iPhone, forcing owners who want to be free of wires to either jump ship to Android devices where the tech has been commonly offered for some time, or to pick up a third-party adapter, like Mophie's recent Juice Packs. Now, though, it's apparently full-steam-ahead at Cupertino.

Instagram’s 10x photos or videos per post is just a blog

Instagram’s 10x photos or videos per post is just a blog

The newest update to Instagram will allow users to insert up to 10x photos or 10x videos in a single post. As Instagram makes this change, they also pave the way to the future - a future in which users are able to post more than 10 photos, and more than 10 videos, and put as much text as they want, and maybe even someday have comments and more share buttons, too. Maybe Instagram's next move will be to allow users to post quotes, audio without video, and insert links too. Is Instagram just becoming Tumblr?
