Apple’s Tim Cook shares first photos from iPhone 7 Plus, taken by someone else

The iPhone 7 hits stores later this week and to ramp up the hype, Apple boss Tim Cook on Sunday shared some shots snapped by the larger of the two devices, which comes with superior camera features.

The pictures (full set here) were taken by Sports Illustrated photographer David E. Klutho at the Titans-Vikings game over the weekend.

Utilizing the iPhone 7 Plus’s two 12-megapixel rear cameras – one with a 28mm wide-angle lens and the other with a 56mm telephoto lens – Klutho’s photos are tack sharp with great color reproduction, results certain to delight photography enthusiasts who’re planning on going for the larger iPhone.

The smaller iPhone 7 also features an improved camera, though it lacks the second (telephoto) lens seen on the Plus.

Both devices promise better shots in low light compared to earlier iterations of the iPhone, though Klutho’s football shots don’t offer any examples.

Professional photographers will be pleased to learn that the iPhone 7 also supports RAW image format – the first iPhone to do so – enabling more control when editing images.

Presumably Cook himself wasn’t at Sunday’s football game otherwise he would surely have posted some pics of his own taken with the new phone. Or perhaps not.

The Apple boss was ridiculed earlier this year when he tweeted a somewhat lousy image snapped during the post-match celebrations at the Super Bowl. Netizens wasted little time in mocking Cook, with one asking if the picture was taken with a toaster and another suggesting he switch to using a Samsung Galaxy device instead. Cook later deleted the blurry photo.

I really hope the iPhone 16 Pro Max doesn’t look like this

We may still be waiting for Apple to announce the iPhone 15 series, but that hasn't stopped the iPhone 16 leaks from already trickling in. More specifically, new renders now provide a first glimpse at what 2024's iPhone 16 Pro Max could look like ... and it's a lot.

In collaboration with Apple leaker Sonny Dickson, 9to5Mac has published early CAD renders of the iPhone 16 Pro Max / iPhone 16 Ultra. The name of the device is still up in the air, but the renders showcase what the rumored 6.9-inch display will potentially look like.

I found a huge problem with the new ChatGPT iPhone app
ChatGPT app running on an iPhone.

Seemingly out of nowhere, OpenAI released its official ChatGPT iOS app this week. Available for both iPhones and iPads, the free app allows you to use the popular AI chatbot in a much simpler, easier way than ever before. No more messing with the mobile website or trying to fiddle with uncertain third-party apps — just download the official ChatGPT application, and you're good to go.

It's a big step forward to make ChatGPT more accessible and to get it into the hands of more people. Naturally, I was curious to test it out for myself. I've been using the ChatGPT iPhone app to ask the chatbot various questions, and while the whole thing works just like you'd expect, there's one big, glaring problem that makes me never want to touch the app again.

Let’s be clear, Apple — it’s time to make a transparent iPhone
Deep Purple iPhone 14 Pro with Beats Studio Buds+ in Transparent

Apple has released a new product that's gotten a lot of attention because of an awesome new color option. No, it’s not an iPhone, iPad, or even an Apple Watch. Heck, it’s not even the AirPods Pro 2. So, what am I talking about?

Apple acquired Beats by Dre in 2014, and this week, Beats dropped the new Beats Studio Buds+, which are pretty similar to the AirPods Pro 2, but cost less dough. And they come in one of the coolest colors I’ve seen in a long time: transparent.
