Google’s smartwatch platform, Android Wear, has officially gained support for iPhones. The Android Wear for iOS app is currently rolling out and anyone with an iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus can start using the Android Wear app at last. Just make sure you’re running iOS 8.2 or later.

LG’s new Nexus 5 will go on sale before the end of September, according to a new report. The device will be one of the first smartphones on the market powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and it’s thought to be one of two Nexus handsets launching this fall.

A number of Sony press images for the upcoming Xperia Z5 have leaked out ahead of the handset’s official unveiling at IFA next week. The shots confirm the device will have a 23-megapixel camera with a six-element lens, and a water-resistant design just like its predecessors.

It turns out Samsung’s latest phablet isn’t the only one with a design flaw. Owners of the OnePlus 2 have discovered a strange issue with the handset’s fancy new home button, which causes it to become unresponsive when the device is held in two hands.
