HI-TECH NEWS with #iPhone hashtag

The Apple Watch doesn't work with Android phones -- but your Samsung watch might now work with Apple. Today, Samsung has released a pair of apps on Apple's iOS App Store which allow the Samsung Gear S2, Gear S3, and Gear Fit 2 wearables to pair and work with Apple's iPhones.

Cameras on smartphones have transformed the way we take and share images, and the camera on the iPhone 7 is one of the best around.

The trouble is, with a fixed focal length with a wide field of view, it's not suited to every subject we point it at.

You could reach for compact camera or DSLR – but given the connectivity and ease of use of your iPhone, and the fact that you're more likely to have it with you most of the time, getting better results from your phone is preferable to lugging a camera around.

For the first time Apple is going to allow its AI researchers to publish their research, a move which could help the company make significant advancements in its AI technology. 

According to a report from Bloomberg, Russ Salakhutdinov, an Apple director of AI research, recently revealed the news at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference in Barcelona.

This isn't a completely surprising move since Apple has already proven it's willing to step away from the secretive insular development processes its become known for in the name of improving the performance of its voice assistant Siri.

Apple has blamed "external physical damage" for causing a handful of iPhones to explode or catch fire in China and insisted that its handsets posed no safety problem.

Apple launched iOS 10 back in September to mostly positive reviews, but with the recent release of a 10.1.1 update, something has gone wrong. A growing number of users are reporting that their battery is no longer functioning correctly, and there's no obvious reason as to why.

Some good news for folks looking to shave a hundred bucks or so off an iPhone, while still getting all the benefits that going through Apple’s official channels entail. The company is now stocking refurbished iPhones through its online store — which was previously limited to iPads, Macs, Apple TVs and the like.

Recently Apple has introduced a lot of few features, though its typing experience still leaves much to be desired. As far as we know iPhones are not one-handed anymore and this became one of the main complaints of the device. However it turned out there is actually a hidden one-handed keyboard that nobody is supposed to know about. A developer named Steve Troughton-Smith discovered it on the Apple device accidentally by hacking an Apple’s iOS Simulator.

According to the latest figures posted by Apple, more than half the iOS device (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) users visiting the App Store have updated to iOS 10. The Cupertino-based company updated its App Store Distribution page to show the OS distribution data of App Store visitors on October 7 2016, split between iOS 10, iOS 9 and earlier iOS versions.

This month we welcome the Galaxy Note 7 onto the list, as the faulty battery issue is fixed and the device is now deemed safe to use.

Good thing, too, because it would be a shame to leave out such an otherwise excellent smartphone. 

Here's our ranking of the best phones you can buy.
