With 4K video recording, optical and digital image stabilization, and an f1.8 aperture, these new iPhones are pretty incredible…

Here’s a video of in-screen fingerprint reader technology that Apple could use for iPhone 8

We’ve been hearing for some time now that Apple is working on an all-glass front for next year’s iPhone, with the Home button and Touch ID sensor built into the display itself. The touch-sensitive Home button on the iPhone 7 is likely intended as a stepping stone toward that goal, and an Apple patent published back in May described the technology Apple is most likely to adopt: ultrasonic imaging.

Demonstrating that this is not just a concept but technology that works in the real world, Chinese brand Xiaomi has today launched a new phone that uses that exact type of embedded fingerprint reader. The mi 5s and mi 5s Plus both use an ultrasonic fingerprint reader built into the glass …

Upcoming YouTube Go app minimizes data usage with previews, quality controls, phone-to-phone transfer

If you love watching YouTube videos on the move but hate large data bills, Google has good news for you: it is introducing YouTube Go, an app specifically designed to minimize mobile data usage.

The bad news is that YouTube Go will initially be available only in India, but the company has said that it will be rolled out to other countries later, and hinted that both the U.S. and Europe are on the list.

The app seems pretty clever, offering four separate ways to reduce mobile data usage …

Drake launches Apple Music exclusive short film as Views becomes first album to hit 1 billion streams

Having come a long way from the awkward Apple Music onstage presence at WWDC, Drake’s relationship with Apple has seemingly only been on the up and up for the entertainer.

Potentially riding off that high, the artist also shared a picture on Instagram commemorating Apple Music’s largest stream count for an album ever.
