We interrupt this Monday to bring you what you need to know about the hottest game on the App Store: Pokémon Go.
All about Pokémon Go, if you can get it
Pokémon Go is fast becoming the most popular mobile game of the year, and it’s not even available everywhere yet. The new augmented reality game, which launched last week in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, has already added $7.5 billion to Nintendo’s bottom line, according to The Verge.
The biggest problem for now? Server issues have temporarily delayed the international launch of the game, according to Business Insider.
Pokémon Go was released by Niantic, a Google/Alphabet spinoff that the game with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company.
Ever closer to the next iPhone
A new week begins with another “iPhone 7” leak. NowhereElse.fr has published a new image purportedly showing Apple’s next handset. As you can see, the new handset looks similar to the iPhone 6s, but with minor changes. These included revamped cameras, the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack, and redesigned antenna lines.
Apple is likely to launch the iPhone 7 in early September.
