iPhone 8 wireless charging a 2017 certainty says analyst

We've heard plenty of rumors about the iPhone 8 and its expected features, but one of the most persistent rumors has centered around wireless charging.

Apple Campus 2 represents the best and worst of Apple’s obsession

Apple's obsessive attention to detail has delayed its spaceship-like Campus 2 almost as much as it has frustrated those working on it, a new report suggests. The donut-shaped facility which, eventually, will house more than fourteen thousand of Apple's staff after they move from their current sprawling facilities is being treated with the same fastidious care as the iPhone 8 is. However, in typical Apple fashion, actually delivering that isn't quite such an elegant experience as using it.

Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks: Tiny bezels, moved fingerprint sensor, more

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been caught in the wild, ahead of the new flagship smartphone's release in just a few months time. The hotly-anticipated Android device has been the subject of fierce speculation in the months since Samsung was forced to recall the Galaxy Note 7 following its battery meltdowns, with questions as to whether Samsung would condense Note and S-Series functionality into the same device.

iOS 11 rumored to introduce FaceTime group video calls

Ever since its introduction, Apple's FaceTime has been limited to call between two people, regardless of the device being used. This might finally be changing later this year, as a new rumor suggests that the upcoming iOS 11 will have FaceTime supporting group video calls.

Folding Surface Phone teased in new Microsoft patent

Folding Surface Phone teased in new Microsoft patent

Microsoft has patented a folding, flexible smartphone which could open out into a far more practical tablet, potentially teasing a possible Surface Phone form-factor. The patent, granted earlier this month, describes a "Mobile Computing Device having a flexible hinge structure" or, in other words, a portable gadget the size of a smartphone when collapsed, but which can be opened up for a far larger interface. Indeed, Microsoft actually has multiple designs on the same core theme.
