Stranger Things: The Game launches to the App Store

Stranger Things: The Game

Halloween will be a little stranger this year when the hit Netflix show Stranger Things returns this October, but you can get your fix a little early by playing the official mobile game on iOS. Stranger Things: The Game was released to the Apple App Store today. It is of course an 8-bit recreation of Hawkins, Indiana with familiar locations from the award winning series, such as Mirkwood Forest and Hawkins Lab.

Apple releases second bug fix for iOS 11

iOS 11.0.2

Apple has just released iOS 11.0.2 to fix a "crackling sound" that may occur during calls on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. This is the second bug fix released since iOS 11 was released on September 19, 2017. The new update also fixes a bug that causes some photos to be hidden, and an issue that causes some attachments in S/MME encrypted emails not to open, according to the release notes.

Apple: No FM radio chips in iPhone 7 or 8

iPod nano FM

Apple has come under fire from the National Association of Broadcasters and the FCC over the lack of FM radio access on iPhones. Both groups have criticized Apple's reluctance to activate FM receivers following communications failures inflicted by hurricanes Harvey and Maria. There's only one problem: iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models do not have FM radio chips on board.

Apple updates its comprehensive 'Privacy' website

Apple Watch privacy

Apple has detailed its privacy policies and technology on the web for some time. Now the company offers a redesigned Privacy website, bringing updated information to consumers alongside the release of iOS 11 and the iPhone X. The site introduction declares that "privacy is a fundamental human right" and continues on, explaining how Apple products are designed to protect privacy and security.

Halloween App of the Week: Aftermath (Zombie shooter)

Aftermath

The well-reviewed dual-stick shooter Aftermath may take place during a zombie apocalypse, but it will not fall to the 32-bit iOS 11 Appocalypse. The game's developer TwoHeads Games rolled out a timely compatibility update allowing it to survive a few more years on 64-bit devices.

Apple stopped supporting 32-bit devices with the release of iOS 11. Games not updated will no longer work on newer devices running Apple's latest OS, but Aftermath will not be one of those casualties. TwoGames has supported its zombie title long after its original release in 2010, and the developer continues to do so making it compatible with newer devices, like the iPhone 8 , iPhone X and Apple's iPad Pro models.
