The recent news of the iPhone 6 Plus possibly being susceptible to bending has caused strong reactions, from all sides. Another year, another controversy that hasn’t gone quietly, at least yet. A new iPhone is big news and an even bigger target. People love to find a chink in the aluminum-clad armor of Apple’s iPhones. Within hours of the first report on MacRumors, there were trending hashtags for #bendgate and in less than 24 hours, it was being woefully distorted by major news networks. The Pocket Let’s clear something up. No phone, regardless of its size, should ever find its […]
There are been a few reports (via MacRumors) from users who claim that the iPhone 6 Plus bent as a result of carrying their phones in their front pockets. While the world spent last week determining whether the device would fit into ‘skinny jeans’, the concern now shifts to whether that could damage your iPhone. One instance has the user pocketing his iPhone 6 Plus for roughly 18 hours, mixed in with dinner and dancing at a wedding. Noting a slightly distorted image, upon further inspection, it was determined that the device had suffered damage.
Did you just got your ‘bigger than bigger’ iPhone 6 Plus and feeling a bit of buyer’s remorse? Or maybe the smaller iPhone 6 is not small enough. Regret is not something that often goes hand in hand with buying a new iPhone. A Samsung phone, maybe. In all seriousness, these days are filled with joy and at worst, minor complaints about battery life. This year is different. Since the first iPhone release, changes to our beloved iPhones were often improvements that didn’t drastically change how we hold or use our phones. Software has certainly impacted usability, but the hardware […]
Regardless of which iPhone 6 you’ve bought, it’s going to be a big time upgrade from your old iPhone with its dainty, but cute 4-inch or less screen. These phones have massive displays, which should provide for a more immersive experience. This being the year where Apple has made major changes to the iPhone, some case makers are a bit behind, so your favorite case manufacturer may not have cases available on day one, when you first crack the plastic and unbox your new phone. While you wait for a Speck CandyShell, LifeProof, (insert your favorite case), you may be […]
Last night, as is the yearly ritual, the embargo broke on reviews of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you’ve pre-ordered a new iPhone or on the fence, I highly recommend you read some of the great work done by each of these authors. This isn’t the first year that Apple has released two iPhones. But last year was entirely different, with the unapologetically plastic iPhone 5c and the flagship iPhone 5s. They were distinct, different and had different audiences. This year, we get two polarizing models, both flagships. It may be the first time a major manufacturer […]
As the calendar hits September, it often marks the introductions new iPhones and this year is no different. They hype surround the event was at an all-time high and subsequently, pre-orders for this batch of new devices saw frustrating customers scrambling to get their orders in, resulting in over 4 million pre-orders during the first 24-hours of being on-sale. People are ordering the iPhone 6 in record numbers. Tim Cook calls them “the best iPhones yet.” Honestly, that’s a claim that’s rightfully made every year. It doesn’t help folks who are pondering the question, “Should I upgrade to the iPhone […]
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus deliver on much of what consumers have been wanting from Apple. The biggest being the display. If they were to release a single 4.7-inch iPhone 6, it would have addressed most of the market clamoring for a bigger phone. They went one step further, delivering a massive 5.5-inch display on the iPhone 6 Plus. Now customers who are upgrading have tough decisions on which iPhone 6 to buy. As we see with each new year of iPhones, purchase decisions revolve around which color and storage capacity. Yet again, those are part of your […]
Today was a big day for new products, even by Apple’s standards. Forget about the new Apple Watch for a moment, the iPhone announcements alone represented a major shift for the company and you. The post-event focus would normally shift to discussions regarding which color or storage size. Those will still remain hotly debated discussions, either internally, in forums or across social media. Even if you’ve decided pre-event on color and storage capacity, Apple now offers two models. I know, last year they offered two models, but that included the unapologetically plastic iPhone 5c. This year, we’re talking about two […]
Foxconn, a company which manufacturers the iPhone and other products for Apple, may be shifting production from people to robots. At the company’s yearly shareholders meeting, Hon Hai CEO Terry Gou says the company has reached the final phase of testing robots, which are being called Foxbots.
We all share the excitement that comes with a new phone. The unboxing, the fresh scent of new tech and all of the fun stuff that comes with a new iPhone. All too often, the excitement dies down. You’re left with an iPhone that looks no different from everyone else in your office or school; a technological companion that while functional, is no longer the Apple of your eye. If I had to guess, I’d say that I pick up my iPhone 180 times per day. Okay, I may not be average, but suffice to say that you are probably […]
