Apple’s business in China is not going well even though the company continues to invest in this market. According to the latest report shared by Bloomberg, the Cupertino tech giant has recently lost more than 1% of the smartphone market share in this country. The iPhone is currently the fifth top-selling smartphone with a share of 10.8%, which is down from 12% in 2015. The first place in the ranking is taken by Huawei, with other members of the top-five list including Vivo, Oppo, and Xiaomi.

New images showing the iPhone 7 CAD renders have been recently shared by a French website Nowhereelse.fr. First spotted on of the Chinese social networks, the photos go in line with the latest rumors and show a larger cutout for the enhanced camera, dual speakers, lack of the headphone jack and the redesigned antenna bands. There is also a separate image that depicts an opening for the dual camera that may become an exclusive feature of the larger iPhone 7 Plus or Pro.
Less than a day after seeding new pre-release versions of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra to developers, Apple has released the fifth beta of iOS 9.3.3 and OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan to developers and members of the public testing program.
The Wall Street Journal reporters have recently confirmed that Apple may be planning to increase the base storage on the iPhone 7 from 16GB to 32GB. This makes sense as the handset will be equipped with a better camera meaning that images and videos shot on the iPhone will take even more space. Apart from that, there are still many users who like to store music on their devices and need this extra storage.
Apple has just seeded new betas of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra to developers for testing. Both pre-release software versions contain a number of minor enhancements including bug fixes and performance tweaks. Looks like there are no new features apart from those that have been announced during the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote in June, but in case we find something worth your attention, we will let you know.
A new alleged iPhone 7 photo has been recently spotted on the Internet. This time the image was posted on the website called techtastic.nl that has been correct in the past. The latest photo is quite similar to all previous leaks and shows a redesigned and slightly larger camera as well as new antenna bands. The handset depicted below apparently lacks the headphone jack, however, because of the poor quality of the photo we can’t be totally sure the 3.5mm connector is indeed missing. In general, the photograph goes in line with all current rumors and reports from reliable insiders.
During the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote last month, Apple teased new animated emojis for the Messages app in iOS 10. A couple of days ago, the company has finally released four stickers packs to be used on the first beta of the new mobile operating system.

It is Sunday today, which means I should tell you about the most interesting posts of the last couple of days. Most of the articles this week deal with the next-generation iPhone, the specs of this device, new versions of iOS 9.3.3, OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan, tvOS 9.2.2 and, of course, iOS 10 beta jailbreak demonstrated by the Pangu team as well as the possible release of iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak.
The Pangu team has recently demonstrated the untethered jailbreak of iOS 10. Unlike iH8Sn0w, who teased the jailbreak compatible only with older devices like the iPhone 5, the Chinese developers showed their jailbreak on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s that both feature new hardware. This means that the hackers used the exploits that are different from those utilized by iH8Sn0w earlier this year.
Apple has posted a new video celebrating the first Beats 1 anniversary.

Check out the video below or on Apple’s official YouTube channel.

You can take a look at the images below.
