September is quickly approaching, along with Apple's latest iPhone launch. As leaks keep coming in, Apple looks ready to launch three new models this fall.

While E3 wraps up its last few days at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Sony today announced PlayLink for the PlayStation 4.

News flash: the iPhone does not need a virus scanner, malware cleaner or any other bogus system security provided by an app. Third-party iOS apps are sandboxed, meaning they are insulated from the host system. Not only does this enhance security, but it means that any app claiming to perform a "system scan" is outright nonsense. Apps are not capable of scanning, cleaning or protecting any iOS device, including the iPad and iPhone. Despite this, Johnny Lin at Medium has found many of these scams alive and well on the App Store.
Apple on Monday announced that its all-new, redesigned App Store will launch in iOS 11 this fall.

Users will be able to read through stories, in-depth interviews and helpful tips in the new Today tab, and discover new games and apps in the Games and Apps sections.
