Apple has unveiled an eagerly-anticipated upgrade to its iPhone 5 and a more affordable model aimed at competing with cheaper smart phones.
This year's iPhone Photography Awards showcases the best images taken on smartphones from all over the world.
Apple has shown off the next version its software for iPhone and iPad, the biggest overhaul, the company says, since the iPhone launched.
A jury in Silicon Valley has ordered Samsung to pay Apple $290m (£180 million) for copying iPhone features.
New smartphone apps have been launched to enable parents to track their children when they go trick-or-treating for Halloween.
With the free iPhone app Track n Treat, children can send a time-limited link of their location which allows parents to track their whereabouts using a web browser for the next four hours.
Another free app, Family GPS Tracker on the iPhone and Android, lets parents see their child's location in real-time and sends alerts when they stray outside a set area.
Life360 enables family members to view each others' locations on a map, send notifications about arrivals at pre-set locations and also stay in contact using group messaging.
Apple has left what appears to be a practical joke in the iPhone's latest software upgrade.
Asking Siri "what is today going to be like" in iOS 7 produces the Wikipedia entry for Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up.
It's unclear where the page is merely a placeholder that was meant to have been removed before launch, or an intended prank played by an Apple engineer.
"Rickrolling" as it has become known, is an internet phenomenon where seemingly genuine YouTube videos turn out to contain only the 1987 cult hit.
Users of the new iPhone 5S have discovered that the device's fingerprint sensor will also allow the phone to be unlocked with other body parts - including nipples.
Adventurous Apple fans began uploading videos of the nipple-activated unlocking on September 20th, just hours after the phone went on sale.
Since then more videos of male and female nipples unlocking iPhones have appeared on YouTube.
Apple's new fingerprint scanners can be fooled using a photograph of the owner's finger, according to hackers.
Germany-based Chaos Computer Club (CCC) claim they have bypassed the iPhone 5s' new security feature only three days after its launch.
The group used a latex "fake finger" slide made using an image taken from a glass surface.
One hacker using the alias Starbug said: "As we have said now for more than years, fingerprints should not be used to secure anything... You can leave them anywhere."
Apple has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone 5s and 5c models in three days.
The two new handsets were released on Friday along with the technology giant's latest operating system iOS 7.
More than 200 million phones and tablets are already running iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.
The new software introduces a redesigned user interface, fingerprint sensitive security and a new control centre for easy access to common settings.
Ever wondered what an iPhone looks like on the inside?

The newly released iPhone 5S is being offered for sale on eBay for as much as £2,000 by those anticipating enthusiastic fans will pay over the odds to get their hands on the device.
The wait for the new handset finally ended yesterday as thousands of people streamed through the doors of Apple stores around the country, many of them having camped out for days.
But with hundreds of listings on eBay for the device with fixed prices running into the thousands, it appears that those that have already bought it are hoping to cash in and make a hefty profit.
Apple has said it will "deliver a fix" after claims that hackers can bypass the security lockscreen on iPhones that use the company's newly-launched iOS 7 software.
The reported security glitch means that the phone's lockscreen can be bypassed, giving hackers access to texts, emails and photos along with users' Twitter and Facebook accounts.
The problem was discovered soon after iOS 7 became publicly available on Wednesday, but appears to only be an issue with the iPhone 4S and 5 handsets.
A spokesman for Apple told the Guardian: "Apple takes user security very seriously.
"We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update."
One of the first customers through the doors at the Apple store in Covent Garden celebrated after buying two of the new iPhones.
