Face ID On The iPhone 11 Will Support Multi-Angles For Easier Unlocking

One of the problems with facial recognition systems like Face ID on the iPhone is that you need to more or less stare directly at the phone for it to be unlocked.

Apple’s 2020 iPhones Could Use Displays Not Made By Samsung

Apple has sourced the display panels used in their iPhones almost exclusively from Samsung. This is because there aren’t that many OLED producers in the world, or rather, there aren’t that many that will be able to meet Apple’s demand and needs for the number of OLED panels to manufacture.However, Apple is a company that seems to dislike relying on a single company for anything, which is why it’s not […]

Latest Public iPhone Jailbreak Made Possible By Apple Screwup

HMD Global Extends Support For Its First-Gen Nokia Smartphones

AT&T And T-Mobile Team Up To Combat Robocalls

Apple Defends Their Decision Regarding Third-Party iPhone Battery Repairs

The other day, it was reported that Apple was employing a new and somewhat controversial approach to third-party iPhone battery repairs. Basically, if the device detects that the iPhone was repaired from a third-party service center, even if it uses an official iPhone battery component, it will show up a “Service battery” message.This means that users who want to know the health of their battery would not be able to […]

All Three iPhones Are Expected To Be Introduced In September

Google Could Be Working On A Low-Light Mode For Duo

Google Duo is Google’s video calling app, but given that video calls can take place anywhere and at anytime, sometimes quality can be less than stellar, especially if taken in low-light environments.

A Team Of Divers Discovered A Working iPhone X At The Bottom Of A Lake

WhatsApp Flaw Lets Hackers Alter Your Chats

One of the security features of WhatsApp is support for end-to-end encryption.

Modified Lightning Cable Lets Hackers Remotely Access Your Computer

Apple’s official accessories are pretty expensive and that is a reason why many users opt to use cheaper and unofficial accessories that cost a fraction of the price.

Researchers Have Found A Way To Bypass Face ID Using A Pair Of Glasses And Tape

Apple’s Face ID system has been touted by the company as being one of the most secure ways of logging into your phone.

In a report from Threatpost, it […]

Apple Suspends Siri Response Grading Program Over Privacy Concerns

A couple of weeks ago, a report from the Guardian revealed that a small percentage of Siri’s conversations were sent to outside contractors to analyze for improvement and quality control. The problem with this program is that it also sent in recordings users made while accidentally triggering Siri, meaning that these are not queries that users wanted to make in the first place.The idea of a complete stranger listening to […]

Samsung Quietly Walks-Back Its Ads Making Fun Of The iPhone’s Lack Of A Headphone Port

When Apple first announced plans to kill off the headphone jack, many made fun of them, although to be fair, Apple did give them a fair bit of ammunition by proclaiming that their decision was a brave one.

Apple Is Making It Harder To Change iPhone Batteries From Third-Party Repair Centers
