This bug will freeze your iPhone if you’re dumb enough to try

iPhone Freezes Control Center Bug

Given enough determination or pure luck, a device user will always find ways to freeze a gadget’s software. That’s exactly what happened with an iPhone user who discovered a way of freezing iOS by pressing a combination of menu options. Before you start worrying, this is not the kind of device freeze that can be performed with just a text message. Someone would need physical access to your phone to do it. Also, this freezing bug does not have any long-lasting effects on the phone even if it manages to temporarily render it useless.

Uber denies tracking users after they deleted the iPhone app

Uber iPhone App User Tracking

Uber is in a dark place right now, having to defend itself against a wide range of allegations as various execs continue to abandon the company. Uber is conducting an internal investigation on sexism and harassment in the workplace, while Google is suing the company for having allegedly conspired to steal critical self-driving technology.

A new report over the weekend revealed that Uber wanted to keep track of iPhone users even after they uninstalled the app, and the company went as far as trying to deceive Apple about its intentions. However, Apple got wind of the feature, which won Uber CEO Travis Kalanick an embarrassing meeting with Tim Cook.

The iPhone 8 should be the biggest phone launch ever, thanks to Apple’s user base

iPhone 8 Release

With the iPhone 8 release steadily approaching, a new research report from comScore reveals that iPhone ownership in the United States is at an all-time high. This bodes well for Apple, as it suggests that the number of iPhone owners in the market for an upgrade is larger today than it's ever been before.

According to the report, there are currently 85.8 million iPhone owners in the U.S. above the age of 12. Broken down across specific devices, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus account for 12.6 million of those iPhones. That leaves upwards of 73.2 million iPhone owners currently using devices that will be two years old by the time Apple rolls out its 2017 iPhone lineup, a collection that will reportedly include an iPhone 7s, an iPhone 7s Plus and, of course, the flagship iPhone 8 with an edgeless OLED display.

The next iPhone could feature a Touch ID sensor on the rear

 Reliable iPhone leaker Sonny Dickson just shared new design schematics for the upcoming iPhone. The most interesting thing is that the leak clearly shows a spot on the rear of the device for the Touch ID sensor. Rumor has it that Apple is going to release three new devices in September — upgraded versions of the iPhone 7 with better specs, and a brand new phone with a new form factor.… Read More

How one man built his own iPhone out of spare parts

https://youtu.be/leFuF-zoVzA

Simple phone repairs, like a battery or a screen unit, are easier than people think. Thanks to guides like iFixit and the magic of eBay, information and spare parts are cheap and plentiful, and arguably more convenient than fighting your way to the Genius Bar.

But building an entire phone out of replacement parts? That's a much harder task, especially when you're working in Shenzen and barely speak the local language.

How Apple might make the same iPhone battery last even longer

iPhone 8 Smart Battery Life

If you’re following Apple news closely, you may have heard rumblings that Apple is working on its own battery management chips. But in addition to hardware, Apple is also working on software meant to improve battery life on its devices. A new revelation indicates that Apple is looking to make battery management smarter in the near future, a move that could potentially have other beneficial side-effects, like preventing iPhones from exploding.

Apple could kill off yet another iPhone supplier

iPhone 8 Supply Business Synaptics

Apple is the main customer of several parts manufacturers who live and die by the iPhone supply business. In recent weeks, two distinct suppliers have had to deal with the news that Apple will soon ditch their business, as the company is moving development of critical iPhone parts in-house. Imagination confirmed that Apple is working on its own GPU for the iPhone a few days ago, and an analyst said earlier this week that Apple is developing its own battery management chip, and dumping Dialog in the process. A new report says there’s one other company at risk of losing Apple’s business, as the iPhone maker continues to invest in home-grown tech for the iPhone.

 Apple already has planned to design its own graphics chip for the iPhone, but the company doesn’t plan to stop there. According to Reuters and German investment banks, Apple is putting together a team to design its own battery management chip for the iPhone.
