One of the major draws to Apple’s latest smartphones is the dual cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus, which LG Innotek is the exclusive module supplier.
If you still haven’t picked out a starter case for your new iPhone 7, Anker’s taking 20% off their clear options today. I’m not usually a clear case guy, but if you ordered Jet Black, these will allow you to show off Jony Ive’s newest wet dream without attracting any micro-abrasions.
If you’ve ever accidentally soaked your phone with water (or more frequently in my case, a pint of beer), you know the anxiety of having to let it dry in rice, and not knowing if your handset is irreparably busted. But this might be a thing of the past with the latest iPhone 7, as it’s rumored to come with IPX7 waterproofing. This essentially means that it is properly waterproof, and can “cope with being dropped in a puddle or stream with no ill effects.” This puts it on the same level as the Apple Watch. iPhones have been getter better at handling…

Pokémon Go is easy enough for anyone to pick up, but if you want to catch ’em all, you’ll need to master the art of throwing Poké Balls.
For the most part, catching a Pokémon in the game is as simple as throwing a Poké Ball straight up at the monster and hoping it doesn’t escape. You can also throw a curve ball at Pokémon, but that’s a more advanced technique.
To get the perfect straight throw every time, My Mini Factory user Jon Cleaver has created this clever Poké Ball “aimer” case for iPhone.
With the case slipped over an iPhone, players can swipe perfectly straight up whenever they encounter a Pokémon. Read more…
It may still be at the pre-release stage, the major features that will help iOS 10 stand out are already on show. What can consumers expect in their iPhones and iPads before the year is out?
Apple on Tuesday announced its quarterly earnings, and, for the first time since 2003, the company made less money than it had in the same quarter of the previous year
Even though Apple warned investors back in January this was going to happen, it can’t be easy for investors to see a 13-year growth streak come to an end.
As everyone knows, the only number that really matters when it comes to Apple’s financials is iPhone sales. And in that case, the company sold 51 million devices. That’s an incredible number, but it’s still down 18% from the same period in 2015. Read more…
Law enforcement groups and family members of victims of December’s San Bernardino mass shooting have backed the FBI and opposed Apple in the court fight over an iPhone used by one of the shooters.
Family members of the shooting victims “seek to remind all parties of the terrible crime — an act of terrorism — the United States must investigate to its fullest,” wrote lawyers for family members of five victims and one witness to the shooting. “Ultimately, this is a situation where no stone can be left unturned.”
Much of the debate over the FBI’s demands of Apple assistance has focused on the “potentially global ramifications” of Magistrate Judge Sheri Pym’s Feb. 16 order requiring Apple to comply, but there’s a law enforcement investigation to consider, the lawyers added.
If you’re planning on buying or receiving a new iPhone 6s tomorrow, you will be asked to upgrade the operating system on the device immediately.
Apple has released a special version of iOS 9.0.1 that’s specifically aimed at the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The OS version was pushed out to the public yesterday, but, oddly, that version didn’t include support for the new phones.
The iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus will ship with iOS 9.0.
The update is nothing major. It fixes a couple of bugs, including a “Slide to Upgrade” dialog problem that was preventing some users from upgrading to iOS 9. The update also fixes an issue that caused some paused video images in Safari and Photo to appear distorted, and another that cause some alarms and alerts not to sound.

Microsoft today launched a new standalone app for scheduling meetings called Invite. Available only for iPhone users in the U.S. and Canada for now, you can download Invite now directly from Apple’s App Store.
Here is how it works. First you suggest times that work for you, and then invite attendees to vote. You can send invites to anyone with an email address — even if they are outside your organization. The recipients select all the times they can attend from the app itself or from a browser, once votes are in, you pick the time that works best.
The best part is that anyone invited can see what options work best for other attendees, and suggest their own times as well. The sender chooses a final date and time whenever they’re ready, hitting Send Calendar Invites to get it on everyone’s calendars.
Here is how Microsoft explains its thinking behind the app:
Invite is designed to overcome the biggest obstacle when scheduling meetings — not being able to see the calendars of attendees outside your organization. As a result, your proposed meeting can be repeatedly declined until you find a time that works.
Certain events and meetings can be moved if something more important comes up, but only each person knows best where they are flexible. By letting attendees pick times that work for them, even when it means moving one of their own meetings, can stop that meeting from being scheduled on a Friday evening.
Invite is mainly designed for users with Office 365 business and school accounts. That said, the app also works with any email account, including Outlook.com, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail.
The app’s launch and limitations are very similar to Microsoft’s Send, a lightweight email app that debuted in July. Like Send, Invite is starting out as iPhone-only, available only in two countries, and with the promise of “coming soon” to Android and Windows Phone.
Invite is the latest in a long line of apps to emerge from Microsoft Garage, the software giant’s lab for experimental tinkering. At this rate, Microsoft will soon have more experimental apps than “final” apps.
And that’s okay, as long as some of them are eventually released or integrated into existing products.
