A sketchy Weibo post claimed two months ago that the next iPhone would arrive outfitted with a slightly stronger battery than the iPhone 6s. Today, prolific leakster OnLeaks gave us a more specific information as to precisely how bigger the iPhone 7’s battery might be in comparison to the current iPhone 6s/Plus and previous-generation iPhone 6/Plus.
According to his Twitter post, the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will have a 1,960 mAh battery, comparing very favorably in terms of sheer specs to both the 1,715 mAh package found in the iPhone 6s and the 1,810 mAh battery in the previous-generation iPhone 6. Read More

Apple just hit yet another roadblock in China with news that the Beijing Intellectual Property Office (BJIPO) has ordered the company to halt sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the grounds that the Apple handset copied the design of the 100C smartphone, which is being produced by Shenzhen Baili, one of China’s phone vendors.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been using a leather iPhone wallet from a company called Danny P. It’s a vertical bifold wallet, with 5 credit card slots, a spot for cash, and a pouch located on the rear cover that securely holds and protects your iPhone 6 or 6s.
In short, I really like this wallet. It’s beautiful, made with premium materials, and has great functionality. It’s easily one of my favorite iPhone accessories that I’ve tested in recent months. But it’s not going to be for everyone. Read on for my full review. Read More

The first legitimate hardware teardown of Apple’s new 4-inch smartphone, the iPhone SE, has been conducted by Chipworks. Apple just unveiled this new handset at its recent ‘Let us loop you in’ event alongside the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
The teardown finds that the iPhone SE is more than just a new generation of smaller iPhone from Apple, but that it’s actually a very clever device that takes the best from the performance world and combines it with the economics of older devices. This allows Apple to provide a product at a cheaper cost, but with similar performance.
As the teardown reveals, the iPhone SE is actually a Frankenstein of iPhone 5s, 6, and 6s parts that all work together to create a powerful 6s-like performance experience in a smaller 4-inch package. Read More

On iPhones and iPads outfitted with Apple’s fingerprint identity sensor, you can set Touch ID to purchase App Store apps, pay for in-store items with Apple Pay, unlock private data in third-party apps, get into the device by scanning your fingerprint and more.
Enrolling multiple fingers is a great way to improve Touch ID accuracy and make your experience better. By default, iOS names each new fingerprint as “Fingerprint 1,” “Fingerprint 2,” “Fingerprint 3” and so forth.
Thankfully, you can rename your saved prints to something more descriptive so you can quickly distinguish them. Read More
