Does any of this ring a bell? If not, it's cool. We got you covered on everything you need to know about this scam.

It's Official: Apple Has Killed Off 3D Touch From Its iPhones

It's Official: Apple Has Killed Off 3D Touch From Its iPhones

4 monthes ago   |   By Ubergizmo

Several years ago when Apple launched the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, they introduced a new hardware feature in the form of 3D Touch which brought pressure-sensitive displays to smartphones. It sounded promising in theory, but it was quickly shown that it was more exciting in theory than in practice. So much so that we have heard rumors that Apple could be killing off the feature in its 2019 iPhones. It turns out the rumors were true because while Apple did not mention anything about 3D Touch at its iPhone event, a quick look at the specs of the new iPhone 11 , 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max...

You can still buy the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus from Apple's online clearance store

4 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

Given how similar the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max look to their predecessors, it wasn't exactly shocking to see last year's iPhone XS and XS Max discontinued shortly after Apple's big product launch event yesterday. At the same time, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were definitely getting a bit long in the tooth, so we're obviously not surprised that the 2016 generation had to go as well once 2019 variants entered the arena.
But technically, Apple's three-year-old handsets haven't gone the way of the dodo yet, fetching $399 and up on the company's clearance website. These aren't refurbished ...
