After more than a year of speculation, Apple’s new iPhones are finally here. Predictably named the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple’s twin gadgets are glass-and-aluminum reflections of what has come before. But in the few places where Apple does makes some changes, it makes them count.

After taking a “minor fall,” the 36-year-old cyclist says his iPhone exploded in his back pocket, melting away his biking shorts and causing third degree burns.

Every year for almost a decade, the most anticipated gadget release has been Apple’s iPhone. It makes sense. In 2007, Apple completely changed the way we physically interact with our digital selves and went on to sell a billion iPhones across the world. Even though the iPhone is losing its luster with each passing…
Apple’s first big “original” content announcement was the upcoming new

Phone makers have gotten pretty good at defying water’s electronic-destroying tendencies. But when it comes to fire, iPhones have a long way to go.
Last year’s Stagefright vulnerability, which could let someone control your Android phone with just a text, was a terrifying security hole that affected 95 percent of all Android devices. It seems Apple caught a similar bug.
