As you watch the scorching liquid of doom…

The Department of Justice is going to absurd lengths in order to unlock encrypted smartphones.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus aren't just bigger and better than ever, they've also got some subtle internal upgrades.

Apple is in full damage-control mode in the wake of the mini-maybe-not-quite-scandal that ripped through the tech universe after a handful of users complained that their iPhones are prone to bending under duress.

The industrial design of the iPhone 6 is close to flawless... Except for one flaw so weird, so major, that it's maddening: The fact that the camera protrudes from the body of the phone, meaning it never lies completely flat and gets caught on all kinds of stuff.
