Which smartphone has the best network reception? Hint : not iPhone

Microsoft’s Lumia 640 may not be the most powerful or feature-packed smartphone, but a study has found it’s the best performer under a weak network signal. Nokia has always been famous for their technical proficiency when it comes to phone hardware, and it is nice to see that this holds true even in Microsoft Mobile’s latest handsets.

Pegasus iOS exploit uses three zero days to attack high-value targets. How to check for it

Apple has rolled out a patch for a dangerous remote iOS exploit that has been used by governments to attack political dissidents, rights activists and journalists.

Researchers Lookout Inc. and the Citizen Lab, based at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, have dubbed the iOS exploit Pegasus. They describe it as “the most sophisticated attack we’ve seen on any endpoint because it takes advantage of how integrated mobile devices are in our lives and the combination of features only available on mobile — always connected (WiFi, 3G/4G), voice communications, camera, email, messaging, GPS, passwords, and contact lists.”

Apple being sued over iPhone 6 ‘Touch Disease’

Touch. Its a critical part of how we navigate the real world and, thanks to the success of the original iPhone, a core component of modern smartphones.

As iFixit reports, an increasing number of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices are showing up in shops with the same problem: A gray, flickering bar at the top of the display and a non-responsive touchscreen.

Apple’s approach to innovation under Tim Cook

Before we begin and I end up annoying some of you, this is just my very personal opinion and observations and I do not mean I am correct, but this is what I know and have seen. My observations may very well be wrong and some of my emotions may flow out the wrong way, that’s the thing about opinions. Still here? Let’s continue shall we?

Suppliers resist price drops, is Apple losing it’s mojo?

The recent data from IDC shows a declining market share for both the Apple of the West and Apple of the East. Both companies deny that these declines mean anything significant but everyone knows that it does, and both Apple and Xiaomi are making efforts to amend their mistakes.

A new report from Digitimes explains that Apple’s efforts to secure lower component pricing from iPhone suppliers has been met with strong resistance. Apple has historically been able to wield quite a bit of power when it comes to securing favorable contract terms, but with iPhone sales currently on the decline (general iPhone unit sales fell 15 percent last quarter), Apple has clearly lost a bit of its negotiating power.

iPhone 7 leaks on 4K video : Three iPhone 7 variants

This year’s iPhone 7 may be boring but that doesn’t mean fans aren’t excited, and that certainly doesn’t mean stuff wouldn’t get leaked.

This may not be the first time we are reporting a video that shows dummy units of the upcoming Apple iPhone 7. But this new video gives us a real close look at what the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are likely to look like and that too in 4K quality. The interesting thing though is despite all the contradictions, the video shows three variants of the iPhone 7, including the iPhone 7 Pro.

The iPhone 7 sounds like it will be totally boring

It used to be fun to see an online leak for an unreleased gadget like the next iPhone or Samsung Galaxy or new MacBook.

Elf.gif“YES!! a new shiny thing is coming!” we’d think to ourselves, eyes-bulging, mouth agape, looking and looking and looking at the one blurry image of what could be the next big thing in tech. I personally have never really been excited for a new Apple release since by the time I got my first smartphone, and delved into technology, Apple’s iPhone was already less functional than an android. Sure it was more secure and pretty but it lacked the things I was looking for in my smartphone. As years pass by, it seems, even the Apple loyalists will find it hard to be excited about a new iPhone. I am not an Apple hater since I do love the MacOS and the shiny Mac PC and Macbooks which Apple has been sweetly neglecting in favor of the iPhone.

Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus Lightning to 3.5mm audio adaptor spotted in leaked video

It’s no secret that Apple is ditching the 3.5mm audio jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. A leaked video shows the Lightning to 3.5mm audio adaptor that could be bundled with the new iPhones.

It’s widely rumored that Apple plans to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack on the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. While subsequent reports have talked about wireless headset and standard EarPods with a Lightning cable, a leaked video has surfaced online showing exactly what Apple may have in store. The video gives us our first look at a Lightning to 3.5mm adaptor, which actually makes more sense than earlier leaks.
