Conan spoofs Apple's iPhone event and Face ID

Apple’s recent new product introduction event proved to be inspiration for Conan O’Brien and his crew of comedy writers. And what could provide more hours of entertainment than watching a fake Craig Federighi answer ridiculous questions about the new Face ID feature that will debut on the Apple iPhone X. During this made-up Q & A session with consumers, one asks, “Does it work with the butt?” Another asks the phony Federighi if he remembered the movie Face-Off with Nicholas Cage and John Travolta.

After a series of odd questions, finally one consumer asks “What is the maximum …


Results: despite its price, the iPhone X is grabbing hearts

So, Apple announced three new phones — as expected —, and two of them were reiterations of the 4-year-old design — as expected —, while the third one was the radical all-screen iPhone X… as expected. Man, these leaks really kill the excitement of such events, don’t they?

In any case, a lot of the rumors about the iPhone X turned out to be untrue. It doesn’t have a Touch ID sensor embedded in the glass, it doesn’t have a “control strip” at the bottom, it doesn’t shoot lasers, and can’t make you a latte. Some would say it’s basically an animoji machine with a large display.
But …

T-Mobile outs the best deal on iPhone 8/Plus and iPhone X pre-orders so far

Just like with the iPhone 7, T-Mobile didn’t hesitate to be the first to pull the trigger on iPhone 8/Plus and X promos, as it just sent us the pre-order details, throwing in the Apple Watch 3 for a good measure.
First off, it introduces a $300 discount, as long as you trade in at least an iPhone 6 in good condition. For comparison, AT&T’s trade-in offer for a 32 GB iPhone 7 is sub-$300 at the moment, while an iPhone 6 trade-in at Verizon brings …

The futuristic iPhone X is actually thicker than the iPhone 5

Back in the day, Apple was known for making each new iteration of their products thinner — the laptops, the iPods, iPhones, and iPads. However, there’s only so far you can go with the currently available tech and, for the past few years, Apple’s iDevices haven’t been getting skinnier. In fact, the lowest the iPhones went was with the iPhone 6, which reached a profile of 0.27 in (6.9 mm). The next year, Apple introduced 3D Touch and the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus grew by 0.2 mm or roughly 0.01 inch.

So, officially, the thinnest iPhone ever was the now 4-year-old iPhone …

Awesome wallpapers that are a perfect fit for the iPhone X and its OLED display

The iPhone X is official, and it marks the most radical redesign the iPhone has seen since its original release 10 years ago. With its pixel-dense display with a resolution of 

1125 x 2436 and almost bezel-less design, the iPhone X begs for some special decorations (not to mention that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, which in and of itself is a special occasion).
Oh yeah, and this time around, Apple has gone for an OLED panel, which means that all the cool dark wallpapers we’ve prepared will look extra-sweet on the …

With the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus (all
announced yesterday), Apple finally has smartphones that support wireless
charging. Hooray! Now, while Apple plans to release its own AirPower wireless charging

Jet Black color option finally available for 32GB iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

Apple is finally offering 32GB versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in the stylish jet black finish. This slight revision is one of the several changes introduced to the Apple Store following last night’s iPhone announcement event.
Previously, the color variant was only available to the 128GB and 256GB versions of the 2016 flagships. Customers had to pay a price premium for the shade due to it being difficult to manufacture. 
Although undeniably attractive, the glossy, reflective finish does have some drawbacks. …
