Now that U.S. carriers have started rolling out their 4G LTE networks, all eyes are on Apple as we wait to see when the technology might come to the iPhone.

Can’t we all just get along? It appears that where the iPhone 5’s camera lens is concerned, maybe not. Rumors are flying fast and furious that the next iPhone will relocate the LED flash to the opposite side of the handset, rather than cozied up to the lens as part of the same component.

You were so determined to hold out longer than your friends for the now 9-month old technology, that you can't believe its white chassis is finally in your hands. But wait!

The software update we've been waiting for since, um, last week, is here to address concerns of the iPhone tracking location data. The update will reduce the size of the cache on the iPhone that stores this iOS crowd-sourced location data and will no longer back it up to iTunes, which keeps score of where you've been. Additionally, the update will also delete the cache entirely when Location Services is turned off. So now, you can continue living like all incognito and never worry about any of us finding out where you've been. You sneaky dog.
