Most people likely have countless messages that they have sent in anger or while inebriated that they immediately regret (or regret the next day). If only there was a way to take them back... Unfortunately you can't take back iMessages, but if you are a fan of WhatsApp, the service now has a feature that lets you do exactly that. It doesn't guarantee the recipient won't see the message, and it won't help for the regret-the-next-day messages, but it does give the sender a seven minute window in which they can delete their sent message from the recipient's thread.

Anybody who travels internationally knows that going through customs upon re-entry to the U.S. can take a while, which can be really unpleasant when you just want to get home after a long flight. It can be a downright nightmare if you need to catch a connection. The process continuously improves though, as technological innovations are applied to expedite it wherever possible. As mobile boarding passes have helped speed up check-in in recent years, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has looked to mobile technology to make re-entry more efficient.
Google-owned Waze ranks among the most popular navigation apps because of its real-time community based traffic reports that go above and beyond other apps in the category, with reports of potholes and other obstacles, red light cameras, police activity, speed traps and more. Like any app that is used while driving, its hands free features should be employed to avoid distraction. Waze wasn't always capable of voice control, so some long time users may not be aware that the feature was introduced later.
Every Autumn Apple introduces its new iPhone lineup to much fanfare about the upgraded hardware, which usually includes a faster processor and more storage, and sometimes an upgraded camera or display. Regardless of what new features are included, they always come with a price hike. This year's lineup, in addition to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, includes the 10th anniversary iPhone X, which features Apple's first OLED display and tops out at a whopping $1149. At the other end of the spectrum, the least expensive iPhone 8 will still set you back $699.
iOS 11.2 introduces Apple Pay Cash -- a peer-to-peer money transferring service for the iPhone and iPad. It's basically an extension of Apple Pay where you can now send and request payments directly from other iOS users. Previously Apple Pay could only be used to make purchases in stores, on the web and in apps, but now you can use your iPhone to pay your friend back for dinner.
