Claimed iPhone 8 schematic shows Touch ID on the back, vertically aligned cameras & more

A photo that was posted to Chinese social network Weibo by an unknown user appears to depict an engineering design drawing of Apple’s rumored 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, tentatively named “iPhone 8” (or “iPhone X”, “Tenth Anniversary iPhone” or simply “iPhone Edition”).

The leaked technical schematic depicts a device as thin as iPhone 7 with very slim bezels on the left and right sides of the screen, significantly smaller top and bottom bezels, a fingerprint sensor relocated to the backside, a vertically aligned dual-camera system and more.

How to spoof the GPS location of photos on your iPhone

The Photos app can keep track of where your photographs are taken, assuming the photos in your Photo Library have location-based metadata attached to them. Even images you save from the internet can have this location data baked into them from time to time.

What most people don’t know is that it’s possible to spoof a photograph’s location data to make it look as if it were taken somewhere else. In today’s tutorial, we’ll show you how you fake the location of your photos in less than 5 minutes with an app called Mappr.

NoLockScreenCam disables camera access on the Lock screen

Anyone with an iPhone should know by now that you can swipe to the left on the Lock screen to quickly access your camera. On the other hand, not everyone wants their camera to be readily accessible to anybody who picks the phone up.
