iPhone 7 plus dual-lens camera

Claimed photo of iPhone 7 Plus reveals a dual-lens camera

More evidence that the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 may feature a dual-lens camera system The latest iPhone 7 leak points to a dual-lens camera for the 5.5-inch variant. An alleged spy image of the iPhone 7 Plus suggests that Apple may really use the rumored dual-lens camera configuration for the bigger iPhone 7, despite previous reports that technical difficulties might have stopped Apple’s plans for the imaging department. Sources from China revealed earlier this month that the new camera might not be ready in time for the iPhone 7’s production. But if Apple really uses this new dual-lens configuration in iPhone[…]

Bank of America ATMs now support Apple Pay withdrawals Bank of America is now allowing users to withdraw cash from ATMs in select locations around the US using NFC and Apple-Pay.

However, support for third-party cards could be added too, so you could withdraw money without entering your card in the ATM, just by touching the NFC reader and entering the password. Bank of America announced earlier in 2016 that[…]

Taking a photo in iOS 10 won’t break the music playback

Finally: Snap a photo while listening to music One of the smaller, unnoticed changes in the first iOS 10 beta, available for developers ahead of the public release, is the background music playback while using the Camera (Yes, finally!). This has been among the most annoying features in iOS for years, while other platforms, like Android and Windows Mobile, had this ”feature” for a long time. Prior iOS 10, an iPhone user who was listening to music and who decided to open the Camera for a photo would have the music playback interrupted. The same would happen if the user[…]

These apps could be ‘deleted’ like normal apps by holding[…]

Apple promised rich notifications for devices without 3D-touch Among the most interesting new features in iOS 10, expected later in 2016, is the ability to interact with the notifications using 3D touch.
