iOS 11 is already installed on more than a quarter of existing iOS devices, but it’s not all good news for users who installed it. Slower performance and battery life issues are among the most problematic “features” of iOS 11. And while things will surely get better as Apple further improves iOS 11, some of you will still have to live with worse battery life on your iPhones. iPad doesn’t really count here, not because it has a massive battery, but because it’s the iPhone you take and use everywhere throughout the day.

Alphabet Inc.’s Google (GOOGL) on Wednesday unveiled tools to make augmented reality apps for mobile devices using the Android operating system, setting up its latest showdown with Apple (AAPL) Inc’s iPhone over next-generation smartphone features.

Phone-based augmented reality (AR), in which digital objects are superimposed onto the real world on screen, got a huge boost from the popularity of the Pokémon Go game. The game, launched in the United States in July last year, sent players into city streets, offices, parks and restaurants to search for colorful animated characters.

The ever reliable 9to5Mac brings these new details and Apple iself is again the source with its new HomePad beta software revealing the iPhone 8 will not only skip Touch ID but look to replace it entirely with a commercially untested ‘Face ID’ facial recognition system for both logistics and pay.

It’s hard to say when exactly the inflection point came. Was there was a single point in time that the devices in our pockets became computers first and phones as a distant second? Was it the original iPhone, released 10 years ago today? Perhaps it was the iPhone 3G, which added faster internet, or the iPhone 5, which supported LTE. Or maybe it was iPhone OS 2, which opened up the App Store for developers to create their own communication platforms outside of SMS and voice calls.

The iPhone 8 rumor machine has been running at a high gear, so much so that Apple CEO Tim Cook thinks it’s affecting current iPhone sales. Even though it doesn’t work and isn’t Apple’s final iPhone (we don’t even know where this mockup came from), the unofficial prototype gives us an idea of what the iPhone 8 could look like in real life, and not just in a rendering.

For months now the leaks have all been in alignment: the radically redesigned iPhone 8 (I predict simply ‘iPhone’), will be very expensive. In fact a price tag starting at over $1,000 is the common consensus. Until now…

In a new report from global financial services giant UBS , company analyst Steven Milunovich reveals Apple AAPL -0.50%’s pricing structure of its 2017 iPhones is expected to be dramatically lower than previously expected. Obtained by MacRumors, the report also says we can thank Samsung for Apple’s pricing rethink.

KrebsOnSecurity recently featured the story of a Brazilian man who was peppered with phishing attacks trying to steal his Apple iCloud username and password after his wife’s phone was stolen in a brazen daylight mugging. Today, we’ll take an insider’s look at an Apple iCloud phishing gang that appears to work quite closely with organized crime rings — within the United States and beyond  — to remotely unlock and erase stolen Apple devices.

Apple   has long faced a tricky balancing act when it comes to selling cheaper iPhones. With manufacturing costs for older and/or less advanced models likely in the $200 range or below, the company can easily sell such iPhones at lower price points while still turning a profit, and in doing so take share from mid-range Android rivals. But when a company is selling over 200 million phones annually at an average selling price (ASP) well north of $600, it’s hard to blame it for being cautious about how much it moves down-market, given the risk of potentially cannibalizing sales of pricier models.
