Effective immediately, you can only activate an iPhone 6 or later with Verizon.

Check it out. Samsung is positioning its two-month old flagship Galaxy S9 against an iPhone. And when I say “iPhone,” I mean iPhone 6 [via MacRumors]. The ad appears to be a pitch to owners of old iPhones, but it feels more like a Freudian slip to me. “This,” Samsung appears to believe, “is all we can do.” Even if the psychology behind the ad isn’t as twisted and warped as my Samsung-loathing mind wants it to be, comparing a brand new flagship device to a three-and-a-half year old competitor is terrible, awful, absurd positioning. Perhaps that’s part of why iPhone 7 is still selling as well as the Galaxy S9, let alone the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, all of which handily outsell the Samsung device. Anyhoo, you can watch it and judge for yourself.
Details about the lawsuit aren’t known, however the damages that Hebai Hengbo wants is worth more than US$75,000.
Have an iPhone 6 or newer and want the battery replaced? Apple will do it for $29 without checking the battery’s health first.
Well, that didn’t take long. Apple is already facing a lawsuit for slowing down certain iPhone models as their batteries wear out.
iPhone 8 is a sacrificial lamb that was never intended to be a big seller, yet without it, Apple would have found itself in a pickle.
iOS 10 brought a big change to the way the Home Button worked by requiring users to press it, even after your fingerprint has been recognized. But, there’s a feature tucked away under Settings > General > Accessibility that allows you to make your Home Button work like it used to. When this option is turned on, your iPhone or iPad with Touch ID will unlock with just a touch from the lock screen. Here’s how to do it.
Good news, T-Mobile users. Apple has a fix out for the iOS 10 bug that knocked some iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone SE users off the carrier’s network.
Are you a T-Mobile customer with an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone SE? You might want to hold off on upgrading to iOS 10 (if you haven’t done so already). It seems a nasty bug is knocking these phones off the carrier’s network, but Apple is reportedly working on a fix.
