Apple just launched the iOS 11 public beta for the whole world to try, and holy heck, don’t get too excited yet. Obviously, your iPhone or iPad will be cooler than all your friends’ are if you’re running the new software before any of them. There will be consequences, though.
Have you ever been to the back room of an Apple Store? That’s a trick question, because the back room at the Apple Store is a mythical place, filled with elves, warlocks, and a magical machine that fixes iPhone screens. At least, it was until this week.
Correction: The original version of this post falsely claimed that the next version of iOS—10.3.2—would drop support for the iPhone 5 and 5c.

Are you tired of using your iPhone to do all kinds of iPhone stuff? Then check out this boredom cure that lets you install and run Windows XP on an iPhone 7 without jailbreaking the device. It’s just silly fun!
You’ll probably have to buy a new one.
It used to be relatively cheap and easy to upgrade to the latest iPhone. Just renew your contract and get a new phone. Now that carriers are phasing out contracts, however, getting your paws on an iPhone 7 is going to cost you. But it doesn’t have to break the bank.
Apple’s slow creep towards becoming a health company just made a little progress with the acquisition of Gliimpse, a personal health data startup.

As it often does in the springtime, Apple is hosting a splashy event today, where everyone expects to see some new products. The most intriguing rumored new member of the family will be a 4-inch iPhone SE for people with tiny hands as well as a smaller iPad Pro for pretty much anyone with hands.
My initial reaction to Apple’s expensive new iPhone battery case was in step with the everyone else’s: It looks like it has a tumor. But what I discovered after using it for a full day is it’s actually surprisingly great.
The government would love to get its hands on a foolproof way to break into the new highly encrypted iPhone. And it looks like some clever hackers just gave it to them.
Let me be blunt. If I lost my iPhone a week ago and needed a new one, I would’ve bought the HTC One A9. It looks great, and upon first glance, works pretty great, too. But I didn’t lose my iPhone, and the A9 is now more expensive than I thought it was.
You can tell Zach Straley means well. The apparently wealthy YouTuber won millions of views when he showed how an iPhone 6s was surprisingly waterproof. Surely scaling that concept up and water testing all 10 iPhone models would win more 10 times that many views…
A cleverly-named security company has a clever idea. Zerodium will pay you $1 million if you find a zero-day exploit in iOS 9. Then, if history is any indicator, it will turn around and sell that intelligence to a despotic regime like the NSA.
Yesterday, technology enthusiasts huddled around blogs to learn about Apple’s new products. They were fine, but there was something about the hype surrounding them that felt familiar. And then, a few hours later, I realized it: The iPhone of today is the Nike Air shoes of the 1990s.
In a footnote to its big new product reveal, Apple announced a new iPhone Upgrade Program that looks very enticing. Extra emphasis on the word “looks” because some basic math reveals that the Apple’s new deal is not necessarily all that good.
The iPhone 6 Plus changed the way people used the world’s finest smartphone. Now, Apple is making the jumbo phone even better with a faster processor, newfangled 3D Touch capabilities, and a revamped camera. This is the iPhone 6S Plus, and it looks predictably terrific.
Another iPhone day is upon us, but this year, there’s a twist. While we can undoubtedly expect to see a new phone, we also expect a look at a very meaningful upgrade to the aging Apple TV. The latest iPhone will put more power in your pocket. The new Siri-ready Apple TV might just transform entire home.
