    With the IFA trade show just one week away, you probably wouldn’t expect any big-time smartphone manufacturers to hold device launches outside Germany.

    Apple is famous for the audio quality of its products ever since the days of the iPod, but it’s been a while since the company has launched a new pair of earphones. The company’s in-ear headphones are older than old, the EarPods exist since the iPhone 5, and it’s not like if we actually praise Beats headphones for ...

    For those of you that have forgotten, Apple is that company that spent 3 generations of its mobile operating system without a wallpaper for the icons.

    Smartphones are well used to dealing with the fallout from glitchy software, and it's hardly a rarity when we see a new handset arrive, only for there to be a launch-week update already available for it.
