Big news for lovers of the iPhone SE, a franken-gadget made of old Apple parts and billed as a more affordable iOS device: It appears that the budget iPhone lineup is finally going to get its first refresh two years after the original model hit the market. The announcement could come as early as WWDC in June. In fact, Apple might be announcing several new iPhones.

iOS: Every time you plug your iPhone into a computer, you see the same pop-up on your phone asking if you should "Trust" it. This may seem like a harmless question, but by granting trust to computers, you're essentially giving them access to everything on your iPhone, including photos, videos, contacts and "other content".

In a move reminiscent of Apple infamous "Error 53" problem, where the update to iOS 9.2.1 caused iPhones that had been repaired stopped working, it seems that iPhones that have a had a non-Apple display replacement are being rendered useless. The issue seems to be limited to the recently released iPhone 8 where the display has been replaced by a third-party and then upgraded to iOS 11.3.

The Kindle app lets you read your ebooks purchased on Amazon, of course, but it has other useful functions you might not know about. Things like creating flashcards to help you study, importing free classic books to read, and saving articles to read offline later.

If you want to do anything with your smartphone beyond the basics, there's no reason not to go Android. So, as someone who has not only owned some form of hand-built computer since age 15, but worked at a PC enthusiast magazine for five years — including being editor of the darn thing — why on Earth am I using an iPhone 5s and before that, an iPhone 4? It's complicated... but also not.

iOS: The red notification badges that pepper our iPhone home screens are mostly useful, but sometimes they can be downright annoying. For example, you're probably sick of seeing that ugly red dot sitting on your iPhone Settings app, a permanent reminder that it's time to set up Apple Pay. Thankfully, there's a simple solution hiding in plain sight - if you don't want to (or can't) link your credit card to Apple Pay.

The problem with using a picture of your significant other as your phone wallpaper is that it's awkward to ever change it away. Luckily my wife just changed her lock screen from a photo of me to a photo of a baby we like, so I'm changing mine to one of the cool maps offered by Alvar Carto.

Earlier this month Google made Google Lens available for non-Pixel Android devices, and this week it's finally started rolling the feature out to iOS devices like your iPhone and iPad as well.

Even though the Wanle Gamers Console case adds a bit of bulk to an iPhone - specifically, the iPhone 6 on up - it's a clever way to protect your device and give you a great Game Boy emulator you can carry around. I mean, the case even looks like a Game Boy. That's going to make for some interesting bar conversation when the people sitting near you watch you Face ID into your device, flip it around, and start throwing down some sick monochromatic Tetris moves.

The Apple iPhone X is the Cupertino powerhouse's current flagship phone, released in November 2017. We're still likely half a year away from the next iPhone, but where does the iPhone X land compared to the big releases from Samsung and co? Should you buy it? Let's take a quick look.

A few years ago, I decided to organise the apps on my home screen by colour, creating neat little columns of green, blue, red and grey. Over time, as apps updated their designs or disappeared entirely, my meticulously crafted system devolved into randomness, but a recent Twitter thread has me thinking about the beauty (and usefulness) of organising your app icons by colour all over again.

iOS: The Apps Dock is the most accessible bit of real estate on your iPhone. You can reach it from any page of the home screen, and it's never more than a single Home button press away (or a swipe up if you have an iPhone X). If you're like me, however, you've been criminally underusing the Dock by stocking it with single icons instead of a folder.

Israel-based Cellebrite, a company that has forged a strong commercial bond with a number of US government departments, claims its engineers have the ability to get around the security of any device running iOS 11 - including the iPhone X with FaceID. They have already had success, according to one arrest warrant and the associated brief of evidence in a US case which could have global repercussions.
