Researchers from the University of Lincoln and Lancaster University set themselves the task of working this out, having decided that since 90 percent of the population uses one type of phone or the other and that this might help to pigeonhole people.
There is good news if you are a young lady and use an iPhone, because that is what you are supposed to be doing. Likewise if you are an old man and use Android, because again, that is what science has decided might be right.
Of course just because 'science' tell us this is how the gender bias breaks down, doesn't mean you can't be an old man with an iPhone or a young girl with Samsung Galaxy. Rules were made to be broken, and nobody likes to conform. So use the phone you like best and don't worry what people think!

iPhone 7 buyers have been reporting vast disparities in processing speed when it comes to different versions of the iPhone 7. For example, the 32GB version (the lowest cost iPhone 7 on the market) is about 200Mbps slower than the 128GB version. This might not seem like much to some users, but when you need that extra bit of processing power, the 200Mbps really matters.
The 128GB iPhone model clocked impressive read speeds of 856Mbps, while the smaller capacity 32GB handset topped-out at 656Mbps.
You can read a more in-depth review here. In the meantime, choose carefully when picking your iPhone 7, especially if speed is of the essence to you.
Not everyone is a fan of Apple or their iPhone devices. It's about an even split between iPhone users and those who prefer Android phones. The two camps enjoy some gentle teasing at times, but nothing so severe as attacks on the others well-being.
That might end now. At least for employees of one company in China whose CEO issued a memo telling employees that anyone who buys an iPhone 7 will be fired. Nobody has bought an iPhone 7, and nobody has been fired as a result of buying an iPhone, but the company did indeed confirm the memo was written and distributed company-wide.
The company, Nanyang Yongkang Medicine Company, says the memo reflected their interests in preserving the well-being of its employees, instead encouraging them to spend money on their family and futures. Not to spend the nearly $800 needed to enrich Apple for each iPhone 7 sold.
And apparently other companies have started to follow suit:
A hospital in China has also taken an anti-iPhone stance, and banned workers from buying the iPhone 7. While it’s not threatening anyone’s job, it does say Apple fans with an iPhone 7 in their hand won’t get a good appraisal in the future, may miss out on pay increases, and will be advised to return the device. It was a response to a member of the hospital’s team that had spent three months wages on an iPhone 7.
Want to know which smartphone has the best water resistance rating? Well, this YouTube video sums it up nicely.
If you have any doubts about whether or not the iPhone 7 can withstand a dip in the pool, or are having trouble deciding which smartphone offers the best water resistance, this video should answer all your questions.
What turned out to be the biggest news at the event was the fact a new Nintendo game - Super Mario Run - is coming to iPhone 7 within the next few months. It was a much bigger deal than just about anyone thought it would be. Even bigger than the news that Pokemon Go players can use the Apple Watch to play their favorite game.
Nintendo’s legendary Shigeru Miyamoto himself emerged onstage to announce the product — a Super Mario game that’s optimized for the unique user interface capabilities and limitations of the iPhone.
This is medium-size news for Apple, as developing a signature exclusive game for iPhone is a key step in its longer-term effort to become a player in the gaming space. But it’s absolutely huge news for Nintendo, which for years has not developed games for third-party hardware.
This could be especially good news for iPhone fans, as it might possibly signal that the company is beginning to focus less on the hardware and more on the software that once made their hardware so incredibly unique. To us it seems the company is going back to the basics--the same basics that made their company something the world had never seen.

The rumor mill has lessened the surprise somewhat. Secret photos and leaked memos tell us what we can expect the new iPhone. All that is really missing is the actual tactile sensation of holding one in your hand.
In the rumor confirmation category, DigiTimes has joined the chorus of those reporting that the top-tier iPhone 7 will accommodate 256GB of storage. And French site Nowhereelse.fr has published a new image of what its says is the iPhone's rear camera apparatus. This supports previous reports that both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will feature optical image stabilization -- a feature previously reserved only for the Plus -- though it's likely that only the larger phone will come equipped with a dual-lens camera.
In just a few weeks the wait will be over and the longer we feel now -- well, even that will be a distant memory.

Turns out the very finest feature of the iPhone might just be its camera. This is most evident in the quality of the films being produced by users around the world. Not just the quality of the videos but the ways in which they can use the camera itself--an iPhone is much easier to wield than a heavy, bulky video camera.
Never underestimate the smartphone as a tool for video. That’s the lesson we learn from “Flying Into Dusk,” an impressive aerial short film completely shot using the iPhone 6s. With the use of a stabilizer and the Filmic Pro app, filmmakers Toby Harriman and Jaron Schneider have created a 4K high-quality video that rivals those filmed with far more expensive gear.

Cyber crooks are targeting iPhone users who have had their phones stolen with a new scam designed to steal iCloud login details.
As if having your iPhone stolen wasn't bad enough, the hackers are tricking phone theft victims into giving up their Apple ID credentials, giving them access to their personal data.
You can learn more about the hackers efforts and how to protect yourself in this article.
If you just can't stomach the idea of your kids beating you at Pokemon Go because they have the freedom to wander all around outdoors and collect Pokemon while you're stuck at work, then maybe you should consider jailbreaking your iPhone.
There's a new hack out there which allows a jailbroken phone to send a Pokemon Go trainer all around the map without the player actually going any where. That's right, sit at your desk and let your Pokemon Go trainer walk around and catch Pokemon.
People have been banned from the game for using hacks to fake their locations, and it’s quite possible that this cheat will get you banned. That said, it’s highly unlikely. Hacks that have gotten people banned simply teleport players from one place to the next, instantly. With this new hack, however, your character actually walks around the game and you control him or her with a joystick instead of magically being teleported from Ohio to Mexico in the blink of an eye.
The next caveat is even more important. In order to utilize this cheat, you’ll need to jailbreak your iPhone. We recently showed you how to jailbreak your iPhone without even having to connect to a computer, so it’s not very difficult to do. Not everyone is comfortable jailbreaking though, and if that’s the case then this hack isn’t for you.
If you absolutely "gotta catch 'em all!" you can get the complete details of the hack, including instructions for jailbreaking your iPhone right here. Just remember the dangers that go along with jailbreaking your iPhone.
