Apple introduces Wi-Fi sharing in iOS 11

The iPhone 5 and 5c have gotten support over the past 4-5 years and that's actually pretty impressive for a mobile device. That's good as it saves space on your iOS device, but it may be a concern to some security-conscious firms who may now need to think about what security policies they wish to put in place to govern online storage of potentially confidential business messages with a third-party public-facing provider.

Corbyn calls on PM to quit after Tories' election humiliation

Both of the two main parties increased their percentage of the vote as support for third parties fell away.

Theresa May's gamble fails in Britain's snap elections

When the world has started calling the Conservatives as "shambolic" and "chaotic", Labour party is being described as "energetic" and "inspiring" for the way the members campaigned for the UK Elections.

Further Brexit uncertainty for Britain as snap election yields hung parliament

It was not so much that the Conservatives did miserably - just 1,688 strategically-cast votes could have won them the 326-seat majority they needed.

With all but one constituency declared, the Conservatives won 318 seats - down from 331 at the 2015 election - while Labour was on 261, up from 229.
