These are the App Store’s most popular ARKit apps and games on iOS 11

Best ARKit apps

One of the most exciting additions to Apple's mobile platform in iOS 11 is ARKit, which makes it easier than ever for developers to implement augmented reality into their apps. Apple has gone as far as to dedicate an entire sections of the App Store to new AR-focused apps, and this week, mobile analytics firm Sensor Tower took a deep dive into the data to see which AR apps and games on iOS 11 have made the biggest impact so far.

World’s top Apple insider says every iPhone will abandon Touch ID next year

iPhone X

If you've long been a fan of Touch ID, we've got some bad news for you. According to noted Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo, every new iPhone Apple releases next year will incorporate Face ID and, in the process, relegate Touch ID to nothing more than a memory. Word of Apple doubling down on Face ID is interesting for a few reasons. For one, Apple is still struggling to manufacture one of the key components of the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera system, the cornerstone of Face ID. Second, it remains to be seen how users take to Face ID. Though Apple has assured us that Face ID is just as convenient, quick, and reliable as Touch ID, it's far too early to tell if consumers will view Face ID as a suitable replacement or a clunky nuisance.

This is how a foldable iPhone X would work

iPhone X Foldable Display

The iPhone X has the biggest screen-to-front ratio ever seen in an iPhone, but Apple isn’t done enlarging the display. A report earlier this week said Apple is already working with LG on bendable screen designs. The company is apparently trying to keep its plan secret from Samsung, which is currently the only supplier of foldable OLED screens.

Meanwhile, a patent application surfaced on Thursday, describing exactly screen technology that would allow Apple to manufacture devices with foldable displays.

How the iPhone’s insides have changed, from the original iPhone to the iPhone X

iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7 vs original iPhone

We all know that the iPhone has changed a lot. If you have an old original iPhone lying in a drawer somewhere, you've probably picked it up in the past couple of years, and marveled at how thick it is, and how tiny the screen seems.

Bloomberg and iFixit have teamed up to take the basic gawking a step further. In a neat new project, they've superimposed the guts of every generation of iPhone next to each other, and the contrast is truly startling.

Do not give your Apple ID password to any iPhone app that might be asking for it

Apple ID Popup on iPhone


Any savvy iPhone or iPad user will tell you that popups requiring you to enter your Apple ID and password are a pretty common thing. It usually happens while you’re inside Apple’s stores, although they can appear unexpectedly.

As a rule of thumb, do not enter your Apple ID when these popups show up in third-party apps. Apparently, they may be used to steal your Apple ID password.

Apple quietly released an iTunes update that keeps iPhone apps

Download iPhone Apps

When Apple released iTunes 12.7 a few weeks ago, the new software unexpectedly killed a feature I’ve been using for years: iPhone apps download. Whenever I’d find an interesting iOS app or game while on the Mac, I’d download it in iTunes. That way, I’d see it installed on the iPhone (or sitting at the top of my recent purchases list).

However, Apple just fixed the problem it created by releasing a special fork of iTunes, version 12.6.3, that you can download right away.

Benchmarks contradict ‘Apple slowed down my iPhone’ claims

 It’s a refrain we all hear every year around September: “I swear, whenever they release a new iPhone, Apple makes all the old ones run worse to make you upgrade.” But thousands of performance tests conducted over the years by Futuremark users show that the conspiracy is mostly in your mind.
