Today, the 9th of January 2017, marks 10 years since Apple introduced the first iPhone ever — though the actual device was put up for sale on the 29th of June 2007. In a press release commemorating this momentous occasion, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the “best is yet to come”.
There aren’t many technological revolutions quite like Apple‘s original iPhone. It was so radical and revolutionary that it ushered on an entire generation of new devices that we now probably couldn’t live without.
That was almost a decade ago and Apple’s idea of the iPhone has changed over 10 different iterations. So, with the launch of the brand new iPhone 7, we thought we’d take a quick look back at one of the most storied smartphones in the world.

Apple products are expensive to buy brand new. If you’ve always wanted a shiny Apple product, Machines is organising a warehouse clearance sales with lowered prices for iPod, iPhone, iPad, MacBook, Apple Watch and other accessories.
Have you ever been annoyed at how
darn difficult it is to place emphasis in WhatsApp conversations? Well, now it’s going to be much easier because if you’re on an iPhone, the text messaging service will let you use text formatting in your conversations.
Experiments are fun, mobile related experiments are even more so. MacRumors decided to record a blocked number’s attempts to call and text a blocker on an iPhone. And we’re sure that you’ve always wondered what actually goes on and whether these blocked numbers can actually reach you. This was what they found out.

AnTuTu, a company responsible for the development of the AnTuTu benchmark app which we (along with many other reviewers) use when reviewing phones, publishes their annual Performance Ranking Report ranking the 10 best smartphones of that particular year.
Before v6.0 of the app, the report only consisted of Android phones. With this new version, though, 2015’s report is the first cross-platform ranking report and my goodness was it an interesting one. While we weren’t that surprised that the iPhone 6s Plus was #1 on their list, we were shocked at how MUCH further it was from the competition. Let me give you a hint: 132k.

Rumours of a smaller, 4-inch iPhone have been floating around for several months now, with some suggesting that it would be announced together with the iPhone 6s. That obviously didn’t happen, but now new rumours have surfaced claiming that it will come mid-2016.
If you’ve gotten an iPhone 6s, one of the newest feature is Live Photos. It basically takes a moving picture which include seconds before and after a shot is being taken. Problem is, most of the time it capture moments of you lowering your iPhone which is natural for anyone to do when taking a normal picture.
This minor annoyance has been fixed with the new iOS 9.1 which is rolling out now to current iOS 9 devices. From the changelog, the updated Live Photos should intelligently detect when the iPhone is being lifted or lowered, so it knows when to start/stop recording at the right time. It also brings a fresh batch of 150 Emojis for all your social and messaging needs.
Just a week since they pushed its iOS 9.0.1 update, Apple is rolling out a new one that’s available for download on your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
The new iOS 9.0.2 update that weighs about 74MB fixes a couple of bugs which covers switching on/off mobile app data usage, iMessage activation, iCloud Backup and screen orientation. To download, just head over to Settings > General > Software Update. You can do this over the air or via iTunes on a computer.
A week after iOS 9 was released officially, Apple is now rolling out a new update to address a couple of teething issues. It is available now as an OTA (Over The Air) update and you can check manually under Settings > General > Software Updates.
