Apple’s hyped up new iPhones hold a lot of allure. Clad in a silver, space grey or a rich gold finish and featuring the new A12 Bionic chip inside, the recently-debuted iPhone XS represents the best tech Apple can jam in a phone. So naturally, one of the first things people did after getting their hands on one was tear it apart and see what’s inside. And would you just look at that battery?

The password itself is crappy. It’s a fundamentally flawed mechanism for securing our accounts and data that should have died long ago. That means poorly crafted passwords are doubly bad. But with the release of iOS 12 and recent updates to Android, truly terrible passwords—your 123456, facebookpassw0rd, or dEadP3tsnAme—have lost all reason to exist.

It's iOS 12 launch day, which means that it's finally out of beta and onto your iPhone and iPad. It brings a slew of new features with it, including the ability to measure objects in Augmented Reality.

Unsurprisingly, people on the internet jumped on the dick jokes immediately. But be warned -- if you're going to use the Measure app to get a read on your dong, it may not be that accurate.

Happy iOS 12 day, everybody—after being announced back in June, the final version of Apple’s mobile OS gets pushed out to eager iPhone and iPad users across the world today. You’ll need an iPhone 5C or newer or a 2013 iPad or newer (anything that could run iOS 11, essentially), and when you’ve got the software installed, here’s everything you can do.

Get hyped, people. We're less than 24 hours away from Apple's Day 2018! It's the time of year when Tim Cook takes to the Steve Jobs Theatre stage to announce a fresh batch of iPhones for people to throw their hard earned dollars at.

Considering all the leaks and rumours flying around this year, anticipation is unsurprisingly high.

But new phones won't be the only thing on the agenda. Here's what we're anticipating.

In a little less than a week a horde of rabid souls will cram into the Steve Jobs Theatre on the Apple campus in Cupertino to watch Tim Cook and friends announce... something. As it’s September it’s safe to assume that something will include an iPhone. But what kind of iPhones and what other gadgets might Apple have in store?

Software updates are exciting. I keep telling my friends this, and when they get behind on their updates, I’m all, “Hey, you’re missing out on good stuff!” This is part of the reason why I’m sometimes the guy who downloads beta versions of software. The bugs are annoying, but hey, the features are better.

This approach recently backfired on me with macOS and iOS 12. Unexpectedly, I think the resulting disaster made me a better computer user.

The beta for the next big release of iOS, announced at WWDC earlier this month, is finally live. That means if you're willing to turn your iPhone into a buggy mess, you can get a taste of what's to come a good four to five months ahead of everyone else.

If you hoped that Tim Cook would surprise the world and introduce some new Apple hardware at this year's WWDC keynote, you must feel sorely disappointed. But if you get all hot and bothered by attractive and useful macOS upgrades, you are in luck. The annual developer conference is off to an interesting start with a long list of little things that will make using Apple products a lot better.

At WWDC Apple debuted the next version of its iOS operating system, iOS 12. After dealing with issue after issue in iOS 11 for the past year, the company's shied away from a visual overhaul, opting to fix what ails the OS and add some features that, while not revolutionary, are welcome additions to iOS 12 (and hopefully mean fewer bugs in the long run).

According to Apple, Siri is the most-used digital assistant on the planet. But for anyone who has ever used Alexa or the Google Assistant, that doesn't mean Siri is always the smartest. To give Siri more ways to help you out, Apple has created a new app called Shortcuts that will debut with iOS 12.

In a move that will surely please parents and grandparents around the world, Apple has finally announced group FaceTime functionality for iOS. In iOS 12, you'll finally be able to FaceTime with up to 31 of your closest friends.
