New Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden will release 16th album The Book Of Souls on September 4 worldwide – and it’s their first-ever double-length studio release. 

Dickinson says: “We recorded it at Guillame Tell Studios in Paris, where we’d done the Brave New World album in 2000, so the studio holds special memories for all of us. “We were delighted to discover the same magical vibe is still alive and very much kicking there. By the time we’d finished we all agreed that each track was such an integral part of the whole body of work that if it needed to be a double album, then double it was going to be.”

Your iPhone Is Spying On You

As we speak, your iPhone is tracking your every move at all times, down to how long you've been there. Apple claims that it does this to get information on locations that are important to you and improve traffic routes. It also says that it won't share any information and it's all stored locally. But it's still scary nonetheless! Here's how to access it and see how your phone has been tracking you. Go to your iPhone’s “Settings”, hit “Privacy”, then “Location Services”, then scroll all the way down to “System Service... In System Services scroll down to the bottom, press “Frequent Locations” and look at the “History” section. Click on the areas to see where you've been.
