Apple has finally included supported for FLAC audio playback with the new iPhone 8 and the iPhone X, along with the Apple TV 4K. The feature will also make its way to the iPhone 7 lineup after the iOS 11 update as reflected by the product pages of these devices. The support doesn’t extend to older devices like the iPhone 6s or the iPhone SE however, which could be due to hardware limitations.
The iPhone 8 Plus is the direct successor to the iPhone 7 Plus from last year. Despite a version number jump in between, the iPhone 8 Plus feels more like a ‘s’ upgrade.
The iPhone X might be the highlight of Apple’s 2017 iPhone lineup but for all intents and purposes, it’s the iPhone 8 which is going to sell in huge numbers.
Apple made some changes to its product lineup with the announcement of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X yesterday. It has now been discovered that Apple is offering the Jet Black version of the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus in a 32GB configuration. The Jet Black iPhone 7 was previously available only in 128 and 256GB variants. It is interesting to point out that Apple has discontinued the 256GB models of the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus.
Former Software Engineer Who Built an iPhone 6s From Scratch Has Now Added a Headphone Jack to iPhone 7
Earlier this year, Scotty Allen, a former software engineer, managed to build an iPhone 6s from scratch with nothing but components sourced from China. Now, he has managed to do something which even Apple could not do with the iPhone 7: add a headphone jack to it.
Earlier this year, Comcast launched its own MVNO, Xfinity Mobile, and, just recently, it became available across the entire United States.
Putting a phone into a headset to experience augmented reality and virtual reality is not new, and even the iPhone itself isn’t a complete stranger to the idea.
With the whole of the US celebrating the 4th of July, retailers are also taking this opportunity to offer some great deals on popular electronic items. And with Apple’s iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watch always being popular among customers, it is not surprising to see retailers offer some great deals and discounts on them.
Earlier this year, Greenpeace gave Apple a glowing review in calling the company “the greenest tech company” when compared to others.
It has been heavily rumored that Apple will be releasing the iPhone 8 later this year with a fingerprint scanner embedded into its display. While Samsung was also reported to include an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy Note 8 due to launch later this year, the Korean company could not get the technology ready in time.
