You won't have to wait until November to buy Apple's next-gen iPhone 8

For as popular as the iPhone already is, Apple’s iconic smartphone will take things to the next level once the iPhone 8 is released later this year. Said to feature a sleek new redesign with an edge-to-edge display, the iPhone 8 will likely spur the largest and most significant upgrade cycle Apple has seen yet. After all, seeing as how the iPhone form factor has more or less remained unchanged since the 2014 release of the iPhone 6, current iPhone owners have been pining for something fresh and different for years now.

Qualcomm Answers Apple's $1B Lawsuit, Files Counterclaims


Qualcomm has fired back with a response and counterclaim to Apple’s $1 billion federal patent suit filed earlier this year. Apple breached agreements and encouraged regulatory attacks in a scheme to coerce unfair licensing terms, Qualcomm claimed.
