iOS 11 release date and time around the globe: Here's when you're getting it (Update: It's today!)

Just short of a week ago during Apple’s largest keynote for 2017, it was officially announced that after months of beta tests and releases, iOS 11 will arrive to all eligible devices (iPhone 5s and newer, iPad mini 2 and newer, iPod 6th-gen.) on September 19, which is tomorrow.
 
When are you getting it though? Well, as is tradition, we expect Apple to release the update around 10AM Pacific Time, which is the regular time window for new iOS updates. There’s no reason for Apple to deviate from this well-established pattern right now, so expect iOS 11 …


Apple iPhone X's late shipping date eats into iPhone 8/8 Plus pre orders


Earlier today, we told you about a new report passed along to clients by KGI Securities. The report focused on pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 3, and revealed that the version of the timepiece with cellular capabilities was accounting for as much as 90% of pre-orders instead of the 30% to 40% predicted by the brokerage firm. Another part of the report dealt with the Apple iPhone X and how its delayed November 3rd launch is actually having a negative impact on  pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 8 and the Apple iPhone 8 Plus.

In its report, KGI pointed out that traditionally, …

These are the iPhones and iPads that will be updated to iOS 11 on release date

Apple unveiled the September 19th release date for iOS 11 yesterday, and, as you can imagine, while the new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X will ship with it out of the box, the rest of the iPhone and iPad gang will have to get it over the ether. As usual, there are some winners and losers, meaning that really old iPhones and Apple tablets won’t get any of the iOS 11 goods, as you can see in Apple’s helpful list above. 
Anything iPhone 5 and below, or the OG iPad mini, won’t be updated to any of the new features, but if you are rocking these dinosaurs, it’s …

Samsung will officially announce a brand new wearable device on August 30th at the IFA tech conference in Berlin, Germany, and chances are that it will be a new smartwatch. 
Is it time for the Samsung Gear S4 and what would it look like?
First, the name: it might not be the Gear S4. Samsung unveiled the Gear S3 exactly one year ago at IFA 2016, but one year after that launch, it seems more likely that its next generation smartwatch will be named “Samsung Gear Sport”.

Report: Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 could share its unveiling date with the Apple iPhone 8

Last week, we showed you a video made by the designer of the Xiaomi Mi MIX and the Mi MIX 2, Philippe Starck. The concept video showed a phone with very thin side-bezels and minuscule top and bottom bezels. Even though the device in the video is a concept, it very well could be giving us an advance look at the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2. After all, when the person behind a concept is the official designer of the real phone (and its predecessor) you have to take that concept more seriously.

Earlier this week, a report out of China claimed that the MIX 2 had received its necessary China Compulsory Certification‎ …
