Apple's ARKit for iOS 11 makes it relatively easy for developers to take advantage of the company's augmented reality features, and gives consumers the opportunity to interact with a virtual world layered over your actual environment. Augmented reality games are certainly the flashiest way to demonstrate its many uses, but some of the best augmented reality apps aren't games at all. These AR tools for iOS empower you with the tools you need to establish some sense of order in your home, plan for the future (in terms of what couch you're going to buy this spring) and get started on some home improvement projects without lifting a hammer.

The iPhone X officially goes on sale today, and die-hard fans are already lining up at Apple Stores around the country. If you have your heart set on being one of the first owners of the iPhone X in Australia, you're going to have your work cut out for you - stock is expected to run out fast with no new shipments until Christmas.
With that in mind, here are six tips to make your quest slightly more achievable.
At its press event yesterday, Apple announced a slew of new products, including a trio of new iPhones (such as the $1579 iPhone X), an LTE-equipped Apple Watch, and an Apple TV capable of displaying movies in 4K HDR. The announcements also coincided with some software update news, namely release dates for iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra, updated versions of Apple's mobile and desktop operating systems, respectively.
I guess Apple got fed up with all the other guides on the internet explaining how one takes photos with the iPhone. Well, the iPhone 7 specifically. So, the company has gone to the trouble of putting together a series of tutorial videos to make sure people can take great mobile shots, while satisfying their inner hipster.
With just two weeks until the new Samsung Galaxy S8 hits stores in Australia, it’s time to ask the tough questions. Is the edge-to-edge ‘Infinity’ display all it’s cracked up to be? What’s the deal with DeX and does it work?
But perhaps most importantly: is it cheaper to buy an S8 on a plan than an iPhone 7?
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 has just unveiled a red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This is the technology equivalent of Malibu Stacy releasing a new hat, but we're still weirdly excited by the finish. Plus, it supports charity. Here are the details.
First things first, no, this won't magically upgrade your phone's hardware. It'll still be an iPhone 5s on the inside. As for the outside? You'll get something very unique -- a mobile reminiscent of a miniature version of Apple's iPhone 7. All you need is a piece of aluminium from AliExpress, a screwdriver and some time.
"Should I buy the Apple iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S7?" This is a question that countless OS-agnostics ask themselves when shopping for a new phone.

The Melbourne Cup yesterday was a bit of a depraved mess -- if you were out in the paddock, at least. Inside the Myer Marquee, things were a little more dignified. Sydney street photographer Giuseppe Santamaria travelled down to yesterday's Melbourne Cup to snap some photos using Portrait mode on the iPhone 7 Plus, and they're pretty special. Here are Santamaria's top ten tips for portrait photography -- whether you're using an iPhone or DLSR.
Until recently, I hadn't ever used an iPhone as my primary phone. I use iOS every day on an iPad, and I play around with each new iPhone when it comes out, but having jumped into Android early my everyday phone for the last six years has either been made by Sony or LG (or Samsung, that one time). After using the iPhone 7 exclusively for around a week and a half I have a greater appreciation for all the things it does well, and I appreciate that I've underestimated some of the smoothness that iOS' focus brings to a phone.

The creators of the Fuze Cases also claim their product can double the phones' battery life. Read on to find out more.
The internet is abuzz with discussions about the profit margin on Apple's iPhone 7 after UK-based analyst firm HIS Markit did a teardown on the cost of the materials used to make the handset. So the total cost of parts for the iPhone 7 comes in at under $300 and the retail price for the device starts at $1079 in Australia. People seem to think that Apple is pocketing over $800 in profit for the sale of every handset. Nope. Not even close.
The iPhone 7 officially launched in Australia today, with prices starting at $1079 (or $1229 for the black versions). If you're a die-hard Apple fan, you'll doubtlessly think it's the best iPhone ever -- despite having no headphone jack and a dearth of exciting new software. For everyone else, you might want to consider one of these flagship Android phones instead.
