The company's latest smartphone was iPhone 4, that is widely praised for its hardware as well as software. Apple's portable devices are powered by iOS mobile operating system. Read our Apple coverage for the latest iPhone news, reviews and videos:

    A little earlier today we took a look at where smartphones have been able to take fingerprint-based authentication so far, wondering about what future the tech might have. Has the novelty worn off? Will the security it offers substantially improve? It looks like Apple's been asking itself some similar questions, and today we see the publication of a patent application that may hint at what's next for Touch ID. The gist of the patent is an unlock system that combines fingerprint scanning with the sort of pattern or combination-based lock screens already used on many phones that lack ...

    We've praised Apple for its design of the iPhone ever since its first iteration. Up until the launch of the iPhone 5 and 5s, Apple kept a very positive track record as a company that knew how to deliver flawless design on its smartphone and tablet lineup. Today, we admit we still like Apple's iPad lineup, but we struggle to recommend the iPhone 6 because of some elements in its design, and a famous engineer and designer has built a concept of his own. Business insider recently reported on a very interesting concept design by famous engineer and designer Nikola Cirkovic. Obviously concepts ...

    Apple has had its good batch of ups and downs with iOS 8. On the positive side, the company has launched a more mature version of the operating system, and has addressed a lot of the things we asked for with iOS 7. That being said, its initial launches led to some bricked iPhone 6 units, and some slow legacy devices. iOS 8.1.2 was recently launched with some silent bug fixes, but it seems that was just part of the story. Apple hasn't really seeded iOS 8.1.3 to developers as is customary, but some activity logs are already claiming its existence. This wouldn't be the first time that Apple ...

    This year's been a bumpy one for smartphone giant Samsung. While the company is still selling a crazy number of handsets, little by little it's seen its market share shrink as competition starts chipping away at the Samsung's dominance. We've already seen companies like Xiaomi really step-up their smartphone sales, joined by other rising Asian manufacturers like Lenovo. Back at the end of October, we took a look at the state of the market in Q3 2014, reflecting on just what had shifted over the course of the prior year. Today, some new Q3 figures are available from a different source, and ...

    Can you imagine a world where companies didn’t push the boundaries of thin and light? Some of you may mock these efforts, but that doesn’t change the fact that the best selling smartphones today keep getting thinner and lighter. We can't ignore the fact that one of the best selling smartphones in the world shows a clear obsession for getting slimmer every new iteration, and the same can be said about Oppo's R lineup. Have a look at our comparison video of the Oppo R5 vs the iPhone 6. In a way, this comparison would've been more suited agains the iPhone 6 Plus given the dimensions of ...

    When does Apple really intend to get started with smartwatch sales? Next year, obviously, but are we looking at the Apple Watch hitting retail in something like February or March? Maybe even April? While we were initially leaning towards the wearable hitting stores sooner rather than later, a couple months back rumors started talking about manufacturing delays, suggesting that Apple Watch production wouldn't hit full speed until January. Today we've got another source weighing-in on the matter, with another report pointing to a January start to manufacturing. While the way the story is ...

    It was just yesterday we were talking about Apple releasing iOS 8.1.2 as a security and bug-fixing update for its line of iOS devices, so we weren't expecting to be back so soon letting you know that the software has already been jailbroken, this iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak brought to you by team TaiG. Early indications from prominent jailbreakers after the update dropped were that the vulnerability TaiG used as a jailbreak injection mechanism had remained untouched, which meant that with just an update the team could make the jailbreak work with 8.1.2. TaiG has delivered on that today, with ...

    Three weeks ago yesterday, Apple started sending another in its series of post-iOS-8 updates, releasing iOS 8.1.1. The big draw there was supposed to be enhanced performance on older iOS hardware (stuff running the ancient A5 chip), but real-world testing disputed just how substantial of an improvement users could hope to see. Still, there were some more concrete benefits, like freeing up some storage space on certain models. Today Apple follows 8.1.1 up with its next iOS update, sending out 8.1.2 to awaiting users. What's new? As shouldn't be too surprising from a tiny (28MB) ...

    We've been able to share files instantly on Android devices and even certain services on Windows Phones for the longest time, and still, Apple didn't wake up to that need until iOS 8. That being said, even if the feature exists today, it still depends on the speed at which developers have decided to adopt iOS 8, and that's taken a bit. You'd think it would only be a matter of time for this feature to become famous, but a new iCloud restriction pulls things back. Developers are already complaining about an odd new rule that doesn't allow them to submit applications that share content with ...

    We're still months away from seeing the start of Apple Watch sales, but one thread that's been a pretty consistent part of rumors concerning how Apple intends to sell its first smartwatch have been this high-fashion, luxury angle: with all the different sizes, materials, and band options Apple intends to offer, to say nothing of the rumored multi-thousand-dollar price tags for the higher-end versions, it certainly looks like it would fit right in with such a market. While we don't yet have the full picture on Apple's intentions, new reports are doing their best to reinforce this idea, as ...

    With mobile devices and the services that power them, as with many things in life, you get what you pay for. Cheap or free products may look really attractive at first glance, but if you soon find yourself hitting a productivity wall, or simply driven crazy by incessant advertising, you may end up wishing you went with a premium option. Back in September, Apple's Tim Cook took a few jabs at companies like Facebook and Google in a message to Apple's users about privacy, writing, “when an online service is free, you’re not the customer. You’re the product.” Mark Zuckerberg is now ...

    Apple has found a lot of success with the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, even though new rumors claim that the company might build a smaller phone next year as well. Apple's only problem with the launch of its smartphones this year, was being able to meet demand for the iPhone 6 Plus, something logical given Apple's skepticism to launch a phablet in the past. The good thing is that Cupertino already understood that there is significant demand for bigger iPhones, and it seems the company is already preparing for next year's demand. Reports claim that Apple is about to expand its ...

    We all know that one size doesn't fit all, and Apple clearly knew that as well with the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Cupertino acknowledged early on that the market demanded a bigger iPhone, but it also knew that there was another crowd that demanded a phablet. Still, we know that there are people that value one-handed usability, and for them Apple decided to leave the aging iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, and it seems there are plans for that to continue. Reports claim that Apple is already working on building a new iPhone that retains the dimensions of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c ...

    If you haven't been paying attention to virtual reality hardware already, you may soon find yourself taking a close look at the latest developments, especially as more and more smartphone companies start dabbling with the tech. Samsung's Gear VR, easily the most high-profile product, only just arrived, and especially with the consumer release of Ocuclus Rift for PCs looming in the not-too-distant future, VR is likely to find itself all over the news as we move into 2015. Who will be the mobile players that arrive to really take full advantage of the burgeoning VR market? Evidence continues ...
