The next Apple event will happen this September, but fans are one step ahead of the tech giant in speculating its new products. This includes the new iPhone 7 or the iPhone 6s. Although new, tech experts say that they don't expect that the iPhone 7 will be any different from its predecessor. This is based on past cycles wherein Apple rolls out upgrades every two years.
However, it does not mean that the iPhone 7 would be the same as the iPhone 6. According to Inquirer, Apple is expected to make the outer casing of the new iPhone much stronger and resistant. This will avoid another "bendgate" scandal that happened shortly after the release of the iPhone 6. The iPhone 7 may also have a scratch-proof sapphire display, the same one used in their line of Apple watches.
Techradar also adds that the Force Touch feature is expected to be applied in this next-generation iPhone, as it is also found in the new line of Macbooks. By detecting how hard the user presses the screen, it can respond accordingly and allow various functions to take place. The Telegraph also gathered information from various sources that suggest that the new iPhone will be equipped with a camera that produces photos that are of DSLR quality. more >>
The next chapter of the long-running role-playing game series "Final Fantasy" is confirmed to be released in 2016. While fans wait to get their hands on "Final Fantasy XV," more details about its story continue to be revealed. Much like the previous versions, it promises an action-packed gaming experience that loyal fans have always loved. But director Hajime Tabata believes that what sets XV apart is the way the story is told.
In an interview with Metro.co.uk, Tabata puts premium in the use of technology in storytelling. For him, having access to the best technology in game development should produce a more engaging story, and in effect, giving a memorable gaming experience to the players. Tabata also aims to attract new players in the Final Fantasy world. Although the series has had a loyal following over the years, he says he made it an effort to weave a story that even non-Final Fantasy players can relate to. He elaborates, "There's not as many barriers there, so it can really appeal to a wide audience… the whole design process of the game we really are aware of that idea."
In the recent Gamescon 2015 event, previews of the game were shown where fans can get a glimpse of what to expect. One particular screenshot caught the attention of avid gamers, which depicts a terrifying battle with a Marlboro. more >>

"At least nine people I know have been taken away by the police and that figure is still rising," an unnamed church leader in the eastern province of Zhejiang told The Guardian on Thursday.
"We think it is a campaign targeting church leaders across the province. It can only be a co-ordinated action initiated by the provincial government." more >>
