Could it be? Will the next iPhone finally include NFC (near-field communication) features? That's the latest rumor based on a leaked photo of the device's internal components.

Research firm IHS is at it again, this time tearing down the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in order to see how much they cost Apple to make (at a minimum).

Oh, that whacky Samsung! Their contentious relationship with Apple is hitting Cupertino right in the pocketbook, with a report Monday that the Korean component manufacturer has raised prices by 20 percent for its application processors.
