How Much Does an iPhone X Actually Cost? A Lot Less Than You Might Think!

The iPhone X is the most expensive smartphone Apple has ever produced.  But how much does the device actually cost to make.  Not as much as you might think it turns out.

A Fake Cuphead Game Made Into On The Apple App Store

Apple’s App Store has long been touted as a bastion of quality in terms of the applications it hosts. Unlike Androids Play Store, the apps it allows onto the service are much more heavily regulated and quality tested. So when a fake version of Cuphead appeared on the app store, questions were asked.

The report first came via TorchArcade and stated that a version of the Microsoft exclusive game had appeared on the App Store – with a link to what appeared to be a legitimate game. Everything looks above board with real game screenshots and the studios name – StudioMDHR – as the seller. But when you take a closer look, the support page links to “studiomhrgames.com” as opposed to the correct URL – which is “studiomdhr.com”. Once the game is purchased you’ll also see an incorrect company name in the form of “Studio MDHR Entertainment Inc”. Continue reading A Fake Cuphead Game Made Into On The Apple App Store
