Released last year, Google Assistant hasn't really proven itself useful outside of checking the weather, searching Google, or setting an alarm using voice commands. So far it's been limited to basic features that are more than matched by other smart assistants like Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri. But Google is trying to change that.

Controversial Uber CEO Travis Kalanick received a career retrospective profile in the New York Times today that covers his awkward early years and his propensity to invite conflict. Among the new information that it reveals, there's an enlightening story about the time Tim Cook had to summon Kalanick after discovering that Uber was still tracking iPhones after its app had been deleted.
After releasing a stand that turned the Apple Watch into a miniature Macintosh computer to sit on your bedside table while it charges, Elago has now essentially done the same thing for your iPhone with its M4 stand, which lets your phone cosplay as a vintage Apple computer that's woefully underpowered in comparison.
According to Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, a traditionally reliable source for iPhone news, Apple's tenth anniversary iPhone is shaping up to be the company's most ambitious phone yet. The phone will be a nearly bezel-free slab of glass and stainless steel (or possibly aluminium), the home button will be dead, and a gorgeous OLED display will be the focal point.
Apple's pulling the cord on its iOS guillotine a little early this year. The next operating system update will reportedly only be available for the iPhone 5S and newer devices. That means if you have an iPhone 5 or an iPhone 5C, your expensive slab of aluminium and glass is about to become obsolete. (See the update below: you iPhone 5 might survive just a little longer.)
Apple caught a lot of flak for axing the iPhone 7's headphone jack - while the phone's jack-less design cuts down on bulk, owners are forced to choose between using their lone lightning port to power their headphones OR charge their devices. Unless, of course, they own these 2-in-1 Lightning to Headphone Jack Charging Cables.
Apple's online store was down for maintenance this morning, leaving us all in wonder as to what mystery product would soon be available to purchase. Would it be a new iPad Pro? A souped-up MacBook? The mass-availability of AirPods? Not quite, but there is now a red iPhone 7 or 7 Plus!
3D Touch might be on of iOS's most unique and most ignored features. Using sensors in your iPhone it knows exactly how hard you're pressing and contextually gives you a whole slew of cool options for your particular press. If you've just bought yourself a new iPhone 6s or 7 or you've forgotten just how useful 3D Touch can be, we're here to help — these are some of the smartest shortcuts available thanks to Apple's pressure-sensitive screen tech. Give a firm 3D Touch press on your iPhone's screen and all these options are open to you.
A fortnight ago, I dropped my iPhone. I dropped it while I was switching cases — just my luck. It fell barely half a metre onto wooden floorboards. It didn't sound like a bad fall.
But it's smashed. Like, properly smashed. Because I'm too time-poor (or lazy, or spoilt) to get it replaced, I've spent the last two weeks using a completely shattered iPhone.
This is what I've learned.
If you own an iPhone, you already have what you need to make professional-looking videos. Whether you're just dabbling or a video wizard, you can shoot videos so good-looking that people won't believe you used a phone. Here's how.
Image Cache: Apple's Shot on iPhone billboard photography campaigns have always been beautiful. Its latest, designed to show off some amazing low-light images captured with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, tasked photographers with capturing their images between dusk and dawn on the night of November 5, 2016. And Australia's very own Bondi Beach gets a special showing.
