We kick things off with the latest iPhone 7 leaks including rumored pricing for the device, an alleged leak that also hints at a possible new “Pro” line for the next-generation iPhone.

There were also a few other iPhone 7 leaks this week. One showed a slightly larger earpiece & relocated ambient light sensor, and another claimed iPhone 7 may include EarPods w/ headphone jack + Lightning to 3.5mm adapter.

Following Apple’s official unveiling at WWDC 2016 earlier this month, we dug deeper into iOS 10 this week with some more hands-on action, while yet more evidence of a ‘Dark Mode’ in the works was discovered in the latest beta release.

August, Canary, Withings, D-Link, Ring & others confirmed Apple HomeKit support will arrive with iOS 10, and Apple itself confirmed it intentionally left the iOS 10 kernel unencrypted for better software optimization.


Mac |

Mark Zuckerberg’s MacBook security methods received a bit of attention this week (hint: tape over the webcam and microphone). And Apple officially discontinued its Thunderbolt Display while reports of the same fate for the aging non-Retina MacBook Pro with optical drive surfaced.


We move onto to some company news as Apple’s $400M payout to customers in the ebook price-fixing settlement began this week. Apple also kicked off enrollment for its Apple Camp sessions for coding, movie-making, and story-telling for kids, and it took a stance against Trump by withholding financial & tech aid from the upcoming GOP convention.

We finish off with those stories and more before heading on to this week’s top video with a look at 30 additional new iOS 10 features.
