If you're in the market for an iPhone 8 or iPhone X, you may be in luck! Optus is offering some high data deals for a cool $69 a month plus the price of the handset repayment. Noice.

Remember how tech bloggers seemed so jazzed about the iPhone XR because it was like the very expensive iPhone XS but incredibly cheaper? It looks like the public is not as jazzed. Nikkei Asian Review reports that Apple has canceled a production boost for the iPhone XR, which is apparently not selling as well as the company had originally anticipated. The iPhone 8, however, is selling better than expected. Maybe people like the Home button!
You can now download and install iOS 12.1. That means you’ll finally be able to use Group FaceTime (LOL), access over 70 new emoji, and get rid of the annoying image blur that caused “Beautygate.” If you own an iPhone 8 or iPhone X, it also means that your processor will get throttled as the battery degrades in order to avoid unexpected shutdowns. It’s ok if this doesn’t seem like a neat feature. It’s actually very controversial!
I’m sick of buying iPhones. For the past decade, I’ve been buying them and loving them and breaking them and losing them and replacing them and, when September comes along, upgrading them.
Last year, it cost me over $1579 to get an iPhone X, and against my better judgment, I’m very seriously considering spending even more money to get the iPhone XS.
A few weeks ago, I tested almost every one of Apple's wired charging solutions to find out which one was best. Job done, right? Well not quite, because this year's crop of iPhone's are Apple's first handsets to have built-in wireless charging too! Then, to make things even more confusing, Apple's most recent software update for iOS 11.2 came along and changed the amount of juice Apple's iPhone's could suck up wirelessly. So to figure out what's really going on, we tested a range of wireless chargers priced from $US12 to $US90 to see how much cable-free charging you're really getting for your money. And don't worry, in the process we found one that stands well above all the rest.
Ever since it launched in September, iOS 11 has been riddled with glitches, bad UI decisions and general lack of attention to detail. On Friday night, Apple's problems got a little worse with a notifications bug that sent iPhones and iPads running the software into a constant cycle of crashing and rebooting, forcing Apple to issue an immediate update.
Your iPhone can charge a lot faster than you thought. When Apple announced the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the company glossed over the fact that all three of its new handsets were capable of fast charging - similar to what Android phones have been doing for years. Even now, if you go the spec page for Apple's latest phones, all you get is a single line saying fast charging can add up to a 50 per cent charge in 30 minutes, but without getting a magnifying glass out and reading item nine of the fine print, you would have no idea how you're actually supposed to accomplish that.
Apple is very protective of its trade secrets, particularly unauthorised leaks of information about upcoming products. Case in point: The tech giant reportedly fired an engineer after his daughter recorded a video showing off features on a pre-release iPhone X at Caffè Macs, the company's high-end employee cafeteria at its Cupertino, California headquarters, last week.
Bloomberg just published an enlightening update on the never-ending saga of iPhone X delays. The report claims that Apple "quietly told suppliers they could reduce the accuracy of the face-recognition technology to make it easier to manufacture". We don't yet know how much worse it will be, but the claim that Apple is skimping on quality in order to meet customer demand is a bit of a bombshell.
The Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have dropped and, although they look very similar to their immediate predecessors, we’re digging the incremental improvements. If you’re looking to get onboard with Apple’s latest, then you’re going to have to open that wallet up – unless you’re looking at some of the no-contract options.
Here's how much you can save by buying the iPhone 8 outright and choosing the right prepaid plan.
Last week, initial reports of some users in Asia experiencing screen-popping battery swelling in their iPhone 8 Plus began to trickle out. Since then, other incidents in Greece, Canada and China have surfaced, and it seems the story has reached a tipping point. Apple has confirmed to Gizmodo that it is "looking into" the matter.
Known for innovating by employing technology and features other companies have had in use for years and treating them as Brand F**king New, Apple is now rolling out wireless charging on its new line of iPhones. Despite hideous initial sales, there's likely to be a rush to buy up charging stations and IKEA -- Sweden's most famous non-idiot export -- is pulling a comfortable, flat-packed chair up next to Cupertino's money avalanche.
The numbers don't lie: when it comes to raw performance, the new iPhone's A11 Bionic chip -- designed in-house by Apple, just like previous barnstomers like the A10X Fusion -- beats all competitors. No Android phone can come close, and even Apple's own MacBook Pro doesn't have the chops of the iPhone when it comes to bursts of pure speed.
As old-school as the technology itself actually is, wireless charging is about to hit the mainstream with the launch of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. But it also raises an interesting question we haven't thought of before -- what if you have an iPhone case that you keep your credit cards in?
