Apple has given up the idea of producing its own 5K Thunderbolt display. During the MacBook Pro media event in October, the company announced its partnership with LG and revealed the new LG Ultrafine 5K Display compatible with the laptops. Below you can take a look at the first short review of the 27-inch IPS external display for photographers, designers and other professional MacBook users.
The video was posted to YouTube by a well-known blogger Marques Brownlee. As it turns out, the display has a sleek design, nice build quality, and can power up the MacBook Pro when it is connected.

Two new serious bugs have been recently found in iOS 10.1.1. According to the growing number of complaints on the Apple Support Communities forum, many iPhones with the latest version of the firmware on board jump from 30% to 1% charge in a few seconds and then turn themselves off. After the handsets are plugged in, they turn on and show 30% charge again.
Apple has never created a true transformer similar to the Surface Book. That is why ConceptsiPhone has created a new concept of a device with a large screen, metal frame and large full-size keyboard. Below you can take a look at the video showing this device.
The transformer called the Apple Book is supposed to work on macOS rather than iOS. It has a very strange design and frankly speaking I don’t think Apple will even make something similar to this transformer.
Here’s how the creators describe their concept:
New incredible 3D concept video that shows the 'Apple Book', new iDevice / Mac that combining iPad with MacBook!

According to the latest report shared by a reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the next-generation iPhone will feature a glass back panel to support wireless charging. The expert believes that all 2017 iPhones will get glass back panels and that Pegatron will supply Apple with wireless chargers for these new handsets. Another reason for Apple to completely change the look of the iPhone 8 is Jonathan Ive’s desire to create a phone that looks like a sheet of glass.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has recently published Apple’s patent application describing a foldable iPhone with flexible display.
The body of the handset will be foldable and may use different types of hinges. To make the smartphone display flexible enough, it would be placed in a way that would allow it to bend when the housing moves.
A well-known iOS developer Adam Bell has managed to run Doom on the OLED Touch Bar of the new MacBook Pro. It’s currently unknown how the developer managed to get the make the old game working not even on the computer itself. Still, this is quite impressive.
Bell also notes that the Touch Bar itself is a useful feature.
Doom runs on pretty much everything… but can it run on the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar?
Side note, as ridiculous (ly amazing) as Doom is running on the Touch Bar is… the HUD is equally great
Apple unveiled the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro at the media event on October 27th. Currently, the company is shipping the devices to first lucky owners.
Below you can take a look at the video showing Doom running on the Touch Bar of the MacBook Pro.
Phil Schiller has once again confirmed that using 32GB of RAM would affect the battery life of new MacBook Pro units. According to Apple executive, using more memory would require a different design of the logic board and physically smaller battery. Apart from that, since the 32GB DDR module requires much more power than the current LPDDR memory, there’s no way to install it without reducing the battery life and performance of the laptop.
Apple’s main rival, Samsung, is planning to release a Jet Black version of the Galaxy S7 as soon as early next month. The report comes from The Korea Herald and looks quite legitimate.
Apple has launched a new iPhone repair program. If you live in the United States and your iPhone 6s suddenly turns off from time to time, Apple will repair it at no cost provided that the handset has no signs of physical damage and third-party repairs.
Apple has released a new Apple Music commercial starring Drake. The ad is available either below or on Apple’s official YouTube channel.
The commercial shows the rapper working out with his friend and listening to music. When his friend leaves, Drake turns on "Pop Workout" playlist by Apple Music and starts listening to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" while dancing and singing. However, as it turns out, listening to Taylor Swift during heavy workout is not the best idea.
The commercial ends with the words we’ve all got used to:
Distractingly good. Apple Music.

According to the latest report from a reliable Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, the stock availability of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus still leaves much to be desired. Apple is still trying to catch up with the demand. This suggests that not all users will get their phones in time during the holiday season.
Apple is reportedly planning to integrate Siri to the messages app to help people check and schedule events on their calendars and make payments using the virtual assistant.
Apple has announced the iPhone 6 Plus multi-touch repair program. The company is offering a display repair to those, who have encountered the so-called “Touch Disease” hardware fault. However, the program is a bit different from all other as Apple demands that the customers pay $150 for the repair, claiming the issue is caused by dropping the phone, not by hardware defect. The company also gives the money back to those who already paid for the repair.
Anyone can access your passcode-locked iPhone contacts list and photos using Siri. A new vulnerability has been recently discovered by a number of YouTubers and immediately shared online.
One of the first to notice the problem with iOS security was a guy nicknamed EverythingApplePro. He used a number of phones, including older iPhone 4S running iOS 8, to demonstrate that the issue has been present for quite a long period of time. All iOS devices that support Siri and have iOS 8-iOS 10.2 on board are vulnerable, so be careful.
