Apple iPhone X vs iPhone 8 vs iPhone 8 Plus

Apple has three new iPhones this year: the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus.

While all of them run on iOS and have identical hardware inside, only one of them feels genuinely new and that is the iPhone X.

It has a fresh new “all-screen” design (with a notch!), it has a new gesture-driven interface, and it has Face ID. And its price starts at $1,000.

How does it feel using it in comparison with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus? Are there any differences in actual performance, camera quality and battery life? We’ve spent the last few days living with these …

These are the best wallet cases for the iPhone X: Premium device, premium style

There really is a rather vast variety of cases available for the high-profile iPhone X, which is enjoying quite a bit of popularity these days due to the simple fact that it’s so much different than the majority of previous iPhone devices design- and feature-wise.

Qualcomm is the odd man out as Apple and Intel design 5G modem for future iPhone models?

If there is a sign that Apple remains upset with chip maker Qualcomm, it is found in a new report published today that says Apple is working very closely with Intel on the design of a 5G modem chip for future iPhone models. Apple and Qualcomm are tied up in a series of lawsuits related to the latter’s handling of royalties on its standard essential patents. Qualcomm sought to have iPhone sales banned in China.

From the Apple iPhone 4s through the Apple iPhone 6s, Qualcomm was the sole provider of modem chips for the iPhone. Last year, Qualcomm provided the key component for the CDMA variant …

Some Apple iPhone users on AT&T can't make or take calls (UPDATE)

If you are an AT&T subscriber with an Apple iPhone, you might have found it difficult to make or answer a phone call today on your device. The nation’s second largest carrier is experiencing some sort of network issue that instantly disconnects calls once they are connected. Calls made to some iPhone models that support the AT&T pipeline are sent right to voicemail, without giving the device user a chance to answer.

UPDATE: The outage now appears to be affecting all AT&T customers regardless of the device they use.

AT&T’s @ATT Twitter account tweeted an easy solution …

Apple: yeah, the iPhone 8 could do Animoji, but they would be lousy Animoji

Apple has responded to the tempest in a teapot that resulted when the TrueDepth camera was covered in a review, and Animoji still worked, by saying that, yeah, it would somehow work, but the experience won’t be the full quality its developers strive for. 

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, it turns out, which also have the A11 Bionic processor and ARKit support, could have in theory been enabled for Animoji, but the resulting facial expression tracking would be nowhere near the level achieved with the depth mapping available on the iPhone X. That is why Apple isn’t …

Deal: 256GB iPhone 7 in five colors up for $600 at T-Mobile

Buy 256GB iPhone 7 from T-Mobile

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have been out for some time, so now is a great time to find some decent deals for some of Apple’s 2016 models. Last month, T-Mobile had the 256GB iPhone 7 on sale, but it only offered units in Jet Black – an undoubtedly swanky color option that’s also a bit prone to scratching.

That deal expired rather quickly, but now, the Un-carrier is back and ready for more. Going to T-Mobile’s website reveals that the 256GB iPhone 7 is up for $600 again. However, unlike …

Telegram 4.5 adds iPhone X support, albums and saved messages

Telegram is getting a major update that brings some important changes. First off, starting with version 4.5, users will be able to group multiple pictures and videos they want to send into albums.

Obviously, you won’t be able to group too many pictures or videos in an album, but you can include up to 10 of those, arranged in the chat as thumbnails. More importantly, the person receiving the album will get just one notification for the album instead of ten for each item.

The update also adds the ability to choose the order in which the photos are sent. You’ll also notice that each …
