Back in February, we showed you how to play classic NES games on your iPhone without having to resort to a jailbreak. If your mobile Nintendo game fix still isn’t satisfied, you might want to give GBA4iOS a try. There are versions for both iOS 6 and iOS 7, but the instructions to download the app are the same: set your iPhone back at least one day, head to the website to download the app, open GBA4iOS at least once and then set the date back to normal.
Look, making an app that will run on your iPhone is hard.
Luckily, adsy.me just made it chimp simple for normal folks like you or I to make a mobile app right on your iOS, Android or computer. You don’t need to download anything, learn to code, or even leave your touchscreen.
Make an app to show off your disco band, complete with links to Soundcloud, or share recipes with your friends, linking them to your favorite chef sites. Explain your passion project and connect your Twitter followers to a wealth of knowledge that you can curate on your very own mobile app.
New research has lent weight to longstanding suspicions that Apple slows down older models of iPhones to encourage users to upgrade to its latest release.
The study, compiled by Harvard University PhD student Laura Trucco, analysed worldwide searches for “iPhone slow” and found that the search term spikes massively around the time of new phone releases, The Times reports.
The study compared those results with similar searches for one of Apple’s main rivals but found that the term “Samsung Galaxy slow” was unaffected by new releases from Samsung.
Writing for the New York Times, Sendhil Mullainathan, a professor of economics at Harvard, said that the results were “striking”.
Apple has been accused of intentionally adding features into iOS that may have been used by the NSA to collect personal data from some of the 600m iOS devices currently in use worldwide.
Jonathan Zdziarski, who worked on the teams creating jailbreak software for the iPhone around the time of iOS4, wrote five iOS-related books for technology publisher O’Reilly and has trained law enforcement agencies around the world in how to extract and analyse data from iPhones, claims to have found features that could be used to download sensitive files such as photographs and personal messages from Facebook and Twitter.
These “forensic services” could allow data to be extracted from a phone without the owner’s knowledge. Zdziarski also described “suspicious design omissions” which make that collection easier.
There’s nothing quite as panic-inducing as a red battery symbol. You’re out frolicking, there’s pictures to take, people to text, news to read. But no. Not for you. You’ve got to spend the rest of the evening doing all you can to squeeze out every last drop of battery life possible.
The iPhone 5S and 5C offer up to 10 hours of usage with iOS 7, but if your device isn’t coming anywhere near that figure, your settings could be the culprit.
We’ve rounded up 18 tweaks you can make to make the most of your iPhone battery. Every little bit goes a long way…
Canadian police have confiscated two stun guns disguised to look like iPhones, and have brought charges against one woman for assault. Can you tell the potentially deadly device from a harmless handset?
When it comes to cases to protect your phone, you’re spoiled for choice. Do you got for flashy colours? Waterproofing? One with a keyboard? But what about one that protects you from your phone?

And is it any good as a normal case? We suited up our iPhone 5s to find out.
