But now, the sequel to this long-running game, Injustice 2, is finally out in the wild, as it was soft-launched in the Philippines this past February.
Apple's anxiously awaited iPhone 8 with a 5.8-inch OLED display is all set to launch this September, alongside the iPhone 7s variants.

Before many games make it to the US version of the iOS App Store, they get "soft launched" in a different country in order to get real-world testing for major bugs. It's a pilot program, so to speak, as countries like New Zealand or the Philippines have significantly fewer iPhone users than the US, thus offer a more controlled environment for developers to get feedback and zero-in on problems that may occur in a game's early development phases.
Apple has yet to create a successful social networking app, but that doesn't mean they want to be left out of the social video conversation. Case in point: Today they announced a new video app set to debut for iOS in April called Clips.

Jailbreaking gives iPhone users almost unfettered access to their devices, offering a slew of customizations, new features, and improved apps that you just can't get elsewise.

Hope is not lost, however, as there's still a way to install modded and unofficial apps on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch without any jailbreak.

Google just pushed out an update to Chrome for iOS, with the main change being a new feature called "Read Later". Read Later is a nifty little feature that allows you to download and save web pages that you can read even if you're offline.

Apple just seeded the fifth 10.3 beta out to all supported iOS devices enrolled in the Apple Beta Software Program. It's been a little over a week since the fourth 10.3 beta was pushed out, so this can only be a clear indicator of the latest iOS upgrade being finalized and prepared for a public rollout.
Apple lets you save webpages as PDF files in iOS 10, but the only obvious way to do this is by using iBooks. The thing is, most people would probably rather save their PDFs to a service like Google Drive or Dropbox to make sharing a bit easier. Plus, iBooks isn't officially available for Windows or Android, so there are some cross-platform problems there, too.

Kodi, formerly known as XBMC, is one of the most versatile media players available. With it, you can play virtually any internet and media file in a large variety of formats, and it can be used on practically every single operating system out there, including iOS 10. Kodi, an open-source software, was originally designed to connect to your TV so you could control your media from up to ten feet away, and the core functionality still shines today. All of this is what makes Kodi so popular today...

Apple might have something big in store for consumers in 2017 to mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. There's a growing consensus that the next big iteration of Apple's flagship smartphone will be named the iPhone 8, and will likely coincide with the standard "s" model upgrades this fall. That means there might be an iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 8 models released at the same time.
When Apple released the iOS 10.2 update to the public on December 12, 2016, iPhone users got a slew of new features, including new emojis, a brand new TV app, the ability to save camera settings, and more. But out of all of these new features, the one that interests me the most is something they didn't even include in the release notes—star ratings are back in the Music app!
Google Drive has a very simple way to switch from iOS to Android. iPhone users who want to take the plunge into the wonderful world of Android, but were hesitant to do so in the past because of the laborious process of backing up their data, can back up their contacts, photos, videos, and calendars with the tap of a button.
There's not much you can do to customize the look and feel of your iPhone's home screen, at least when it comes to official options provided by Apple.

Oh no... your precious iPhone is in shambles.

Do you take it to a repair shop, or go to an Apple Store to have it fixed? This brief article will help you weigh your options.
Before the iPhone 7 models were released, there were many rumors pointing to the inclusion of wireless charging, which obviously didn't happen. Now the rumor mill is back at it again for Apple's next smartphone, most likely being called the iPhone 8, and the possibility of wireless charging is more certain this time.
Google's next-gen cellular carrier, Project Fi, is making waves across the mobile industry. With super-cheap plans starting at only $30, and the ability to connect to millions of Wi-Fi hotspots across the globe, it's tempting many users to make the switch from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless.
When you do an internet search, you'll see ads that are relevant to your query mixed in with the rest of your results. Nothing surprising there—it's how the internet is funded. But then, when you click one of the search results, you'll also see ads that are related to your initial search. Now that's a bit creepy, because it demonstrates that one webpage knows what you typed into a different webpage.
With the recent news that New York County's District Attorney's office is trying to get into over 400 locked iPhones for use in criminal investigations, you can see why it's important to keep other people away from your personal data.

How To: A Security Bug Just Made It Risky to Open Links on Your iPhone—Here's How to Protect Yourself
A new hack has reopened an 8-year-old iPhone security loophole that Apple thought it had fixed back with iPhone OS 2.2. This is not one of those times when a theoretical attack gets identified and blocked quickly by Apple. On the contrary, it's a hack that actually exists right now, and it can have some serious real-world repercussions, so this is something all iPhone users need to be aware of.
Apple released 10.2 to developers yesterday, which contained some new features that you'll probably want right now on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Lucky for you, the Public Beta is pushing this same update out today.
Uh oh. With millions of devices already sold, Apple's latest blunder is bound to upset the owners of some of their brand new iPhone 7 Plus phones.
Apple is famous for keeping a tight grip on the look and feel of iOS (a grip so tight it may even change the future of patent law), but the clever folks over at heyeased found some neat tricks to put the control back in your hands.
Before the iPhone 7 was launched and all the unrealized reports about the phone's features were tucked back into their annual rumor mill, there was some speculation about wireless charging. Specifically, whether or not the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus would support it. We now know they don't, and here's why.
Apple released Portrait mode for the iPhone 7 Plus in the iOS 10.1 update, which creates a simulated bokeh effect that blurs out the background and makes the subject pop out in the scene. It's still technically a beta feature since Apple does have some kinks to iron out, but it's ready to use as is.
Can't figure out how to give songs star ratings anymore in your iPhone's Music app? That's because Apple removed the ability to do so from the new iOS 10 update, just as I expected they would. It's still possible to rate songs, it's just very irritating.
If maintaining privacy is an ongoing battle, the front line is your smartphone. Apple included several new security features in iOS 10, but at the same time, some of the best new functionality comes with potential privacy trade-offs that everyone needs to understand.
When a new version of iOS comes out, everybody gets caught up in the craze of finding features and playing around with new functionality. But this generally leads to a lack of coverage on the finer aspects of the update—things like bugs, minor tweaks, and pain points that users discover along the way.
There are a lot of cool new features in iOS 10, but some are more hidden than others. One option called "Color Tint" snuck its way in, and because it's buried fairly deep in Settings, it has mostly gone unnoticed.
If you own an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, or will be getting an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, iOS 10 lets you 3D Touch some lock screen notifications to respond to a message without even unlocking your phone. This is definitely a handy feature, and it should save a lot of time in some cases, but there are some obvious security concerns.
