iPhone 8 Was Nearly World’s Top Google Search This Year

Hurricane Irma, iPhone 8, and iPhone X were the world's three most popular search terms on Google this year.


While the results make it look like the iPhone 8 is more popular than the iPhone X, it's important to consider that Apple's flagship smartphone was more commonly referred to as the iPhone 8 in rumors until a leaked version of iOS 11 essentially confirmed its stealthier name back in August.

In the consumer tech category, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X were the most popular search terms in 2017, ahead of the Nintendo Switch, Samsung Galaxy S8, and Xbox One X in the top five globally. In the United States in particular, the iPhone 8 Plus was the sixth most popular search term.

Google Trends outlines other popular search terms in its Year in Search 2017 categories, including actors, athletes, car brands, exercises, movies, recipes, songs and lyrics, sports teams, TV shows, and world events.


The results are similar to last year, when the iPhone 7 was the most searched smartphone brand on Google, but the second most popular search term overall behind smash-hit game Pokémon GO.

Google’s new photography apps for iOS and Android use AI to do things other apps can’t

Best Photo Editing Apps

It's difficult for some people to imagine at this point, but dedicated point and shoot cameras used to be a big part of our lives. Anytime people went out to celebrate, traveled somewhere on vacation, or went to a family gathering, they would bring cameras with them to capture those memories. These days, the concept of a dedicated camera is completely foreign to just about anyone who isn't an amateur or professional photographer.

Point and shoot cameras have been completely replaced by smartphones, of course, and that's a great thing for so many reasons. Having one less gadget to carry and charge is never a bad thing, but it's the capabilities of smartphones that make them better personal cameras than old dedicated digital cameras. The possibilities are endless when it comes to filters and other photo effects on mobile phones, and Google just released three new photography apps that remind us how fun photography can be on a smartphone.

Even Google is helping Apple secure iOS 11 now

Google iPhone jailbreak

Just as iPhone jailbreaking appeared poised to take its last breath, a report from Motherboard last week revealed that the first publicly available iOS 11 jailbreak is in the works -- and Google is behind it. According to the report, Ian Beer -- a security researcher from Google's Project Zero -- discovered a series of exploits in iOS 11.1.2, many of which were patched in 11.2. But using those exploits, a bonafide iOS 11 jailbreak might finally be possible.

Although we're still waiting for the jailbreak, Beer on Monday shared new details about the exploit on Twitter and even attached the exploit on a Chromium forum thread. He also claimed that the "tfp0" -- which allows users to take control of the operating system's core -- "should work for all devices."
