Each year, Apple releases a new iPhone. And in the weeks preceding and following the release, online auction sites see an abundance of newly superseded iPhones hit the market.

Apple today announced a new app for iOS called Clips that will be out in April. As its name implies, the app allows iPhone and iPad users to create short video clips that can be shared with friends. It's essentially a first-party cross between Snapchat and Prisma with oodles of filters to muck around with. Here are the details.
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.
