Maybe People Like the Home Button

Remember how tech bloggers seemed so jazzed about the iPhone XR because it was like the very expensive iPhone XS but incredibly cheaper? It looks like the public is not as jazzed. Nikkei Asian Review reports that Apple has cancelled a production boost for the iPhone XR, which is apparently not selling as well as the company had originally anticipated. The iPhone 8, however, is selling better than expected. Maybe people like the Home button! Read More >>

Apple Just Can’t Stop Throttling iPhones

You can now download and install iOS 12.1. That means you’ll finally be able to use Group FaceTime (LOL), access over 70 new emoji, and get rid of the annoying image blur that caused “Beautygate.” If you own an iPhone 8 or iPhone X, it also means that your processor will get throttled as the battery degrades in order to avoid unexpected shutdowns. It’s okay if this doesn’t seem like a neat feature. It’s actually very controversial! Read More >>

We Tested 5 Wireless Chargers for the iPhone and This is the Best

A few weeks ago, I tested almost every one of Apple’s wired charging solutions to find out which one was best. Job done, right? Well not quite, because this year’s crop of iPhone’s are Apple’s first handsets to have built-in wireless charging too! Then, to make things even more confusing, Apple’s most recent software update for iOS 11.2 came along and changed the amount of juice Apple’s iPhones could suck up wirelessly. So to figure out what’s really going on, we tested a range of wireless chargers to see how much cable-free charging you’re really getting for your money. And don’t worry, in the process we found one that stands well above all the rest. Read More >>

Oh Look, iOS 11 Had Yet Another Phone-Breaking Bug

Ever since it launched in September, iOS 11 has been riddled with glitches, bad UI decisions and general lack of attention to detail. On Friday night, Apple’s problems got a little worse with a notifications bug that sent iPhones and iPads running the software into a constant cycle of crashing and rebooting, forcing Apple to issue an immediate update.

We Tested iPhone Fast-Charging and You Should Definitely Upgrade Your Charger

Your iPhone can charge a lot faster than you thought. When Apple announced the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the company glossed over the fact that all three of its new handsets were capable of fast charging—similar to what Android phones have been doing for years. Even now, if you go the spec page for Apple’s latest phones, all you get is a single line saying fast charging can add up to a 50 per cent charge in 30 minutes, but without getting a magnifying glass out and reading item 9 of the fine print, you would have no idea how you’re actually supposed to accomplish that.

Apple Reportedly Fires Engineer After Daughter’s iPhone X Video Goes Viral

Apple is very protective of its trade secrets, particularly unauthorised leaks of information about upcoming products. Case in point: The tech giant reportedly fired an engineer after his daughter recorded a video showing off features on a pre-release iPhone X at Caffè Macs, the company’s high-end employee cafeteria at its Cupertino, California headquarters, last week.

Apple Reportedly Made Face ID Less Accurate to Speed Up iPhone X Production

Bloomberg just published an enlightening update on the never-ending saga of iPhone X delays. The report claims that Apple “quietly told suppliers they could reduce the accuracy of the [iPhone X] face-recognition technology to make it easier to manufacture.” We don’t yet know how much worse it will be, but the claim that Apple is skimping on quality in order to meet customer demand is a bit of a bombshell.

Apple’s Revealed Which Third Party Chargers Will Support Fast Charging

Back when iPhones 8 and X were announced, it was quietly revealed that they would both support fast charging. Some people were probably quite happy about that, even if their spirits were later dampened by the fact Apple is making people buy faster chargers separately. Now, though, a support document has detailed which third party fast chargers are supported, meaning you don't necessarily have to buy one directly from Apple. Read More >>
