Bokeh balls hint at the cap of Apple's iconographic motif on Apple's events page. When's the freshly scheduled event happening? September 7. Next Wednesday will be the day that Apple will likely debut the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as we've been calling them. The event, which will be livestreamed, will happen at 10am Pacific or 1pm Eastern. We also expect iOS 10 and various other Apple software platforms get finalized and announced for release and maybe even an Apple Watch 2 to be talked about. There are supposedly new MacBook Pro devices in the works, but they will be passed up for a ...

Our Juan Carlos Bagnell is on the ground in San Francisco at Honor's latest smartphone launch for the US market. We strongly believe it to be the Honor 8 that was launched in China last month, based on visual teasers and the use of a modified infinity insignia that's been integral to the Chinese-side marketing of the Honor 8. Of course, we can't confirm anything before the event happens. Better yet, some other devices might make the cut. Huawei's primary sub-brand will bring its "Eyes to the world" tonight with a livestream starting at 8pm Pacific, 11pm Pacific and 3:00 GMT. Catch it right ...

The Galaxy Note 7's digitized stylus, the S Pen, has gotten sleeker, more durable and smarter. The tip of the S Pen now measures 0.7mm, less than half the size of the Note 5's pen — it allows for pinpoint wisps. If you're working with a wide brush for oil paint colors, you can also mix them to generate colors as you would with real acrylic while at the other end of the stylus, you can erase what you need to erase. SVP of Product Strategy Justin Denison also told of more software feature including instant text translation on highlight and "Smart Select," which can crop a portion off a ...

Following an epileptic opening ceremony and a melodious collage of national anthems to follow along with the Olympic spirit, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Note 7. Company president Dongjin Koh calls it the "world's most intelligent smartphone" and an entry into the fastest growing category of such phones: the phablet. Big points about the Note 7 were presented before the phone was even announced like the iris scanner, — with applications for keeping parents' children safe (and vice versa) along with mobile banking — the device's water-resistance, its wireless charging ...

Time for another Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, huh? No more wishlists, no more expectations, not even a single thought thread extra. We're about to get the straight stuff from Apple on where it plans to take its software on all fronts to through 2017. From user-side changes to Apple Music to the engendering of Siri, we have a checklist of what's going to pop up and we'll have stories up starting at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern / 5pm GMT. Shortly before then, you can hit up the WWDC livestream for yourself starting from this link. Most Apple devices will support Apple's HTTP Live ...

There's plenty of anticipation hanging in the air. Lenovo and Motorola will be dropping plenty of that during today's keynote for the Lenovo Tech World '16 conference today. We have on-the-ground coverage in San Francisco, but if you want to get the keynote directly from there (and you're not there, we assume), this is the place to get it. If you're in it for the RAZR throwbacks, for the much-rumored Moto Z, the purported Phab 2 Pro with Project Tango augmented reality technology or all of the above, we'll be comparing wishlists to spec lists for the next little while. The keynote ...

Watch our Top 5 predictions for what to expect on Apple's October 22nd event, where the most probable theme is iPad. That said, we've this could be Apple's last event for the year, and judging from the fact that devices like the Apple TV haven't seen an overhaul, we could be in for more than just tablets. The biggest question we have is what'll we get and what'll we miss from this event. We're expecting new iPads, but we've also heard rumors of an iWatch, a full-fledged Apple TV, meaning an actual television and not just a box, and obviously new computers. As competition has aggressively ...
