The move from a 3.5-inch screen to the 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5 was a big move for Apple, but is it enough? There is a great forum discussion on iPhone screen size where you’ll find differing opinions and reasoning for why Apple should or shouldn’t go big. It’s a debate that’s certainly not unique to our forum and it has some users considering drastic measures that include a move to Android.
The rumored iPhone 5C, with the ‘C’ standing for colors and not cheap, could be debuted on the now all but officially confirmed September 10th iPhone event. A low-cost iPhone would require Apple cut some corners. A shift from an aluminum shell to a plastic casing would offer a few advantages to Apple. For one, it’s less expensive to produce. While any low-cost iPhone would require Apple re-think the internals, going plastic seems to make sense for many reasons beyond just cost.
There is a great article from Chambers Daily (via Daring Fireball) that says what everyone (okay, maybe not everyone) has been thinking. Apple’s current solution for backing up photos is less than great, mostly because of the limited space afforded customers on iCloud. Many customers have a false sense of security that all of their data is backed to iCloud, when in fact it’s limited to 1,000 images. If they come close to their cap, there is a nag dialog which warns them of impending doom, a warning that an average customer could easily dismiss as an ‘error’. There is […]
Over the weekend, photos appeared on WeiPhone.com that show a box of boxes. These boxes were special, as they were purported to be the packaging for the iPhone 5c, a yet unannounced new iPhone. There has been a good amount of speculation as to the authenticity of the boxes. Even if they are thirty good fakes, this product name could be real. Naming it the iPhone 5c would be an awful mistake that would trump even the ill formed space that resided between the G and S on the iPhone 3GS.
Summer will be in full swing this coming July 4th weekend. For those of you in the U.S., it means a time for friends, family, fireworks and tasty BBQ food. This is the time of year when our schedules differ from the rest of the year. More folks are out of the office or on vacation and those of you in school are on summer recess. The constant is your iPhone. As schedules change, so do the ways we use our iPhones. Here are five indispensable tips for summer and your iPhone.
It seems every year we see a level of discontent among some iPhone users, enough to drive them away from the iPhone into the arms of the green guy. To my knowledge, there isn’t any statistical data on the number or percentage of users making the jump. Wireless contracts make jumping ship increasingly difficult with most people tied to 2-year contracts. In Canada, you have to commit to three years to receive a subsidy on a new phone. Changing phones, let alone platforms is a big decision. Are these idle threats or people are really switching? If so, why are […]

You’re not a designer. You’re not a developer. You don’t work for Apple. It’s a beta. It’s not finished. You shouldn’t talk about it. You shouldn’t have installed it. Wait until you have installed it to comment. You know they only had 8 months. The Internet is filled with commentary about why you’re not allowed to have an opinion on iOS 7. The level of disdain for folks who have authored an opinion, either in a forum, blog post or 140 character tweet is astounding, but is it justified?
We are just days away from WWDC 2013. These are big events and often bring exciting news in the form of new hardware and software, with next week’s event no different. Here is a look back at some of the highlights from Apple WWDC since 2007, when the iPhone was first announced.
Samsung is back with yet another round of ads that target the iPhone. Supporting the release of the new Samsung Galaxy S4, the newest ad shows a graduation pool party filled with kids and adults, all of whom are carrying either a new Samsung Galaxy S4 or the iPhone 5. I’m using the term adults, but clearly that’s not the message that being conveyed. Samsung is continuing to beat the drum that the iPhone is for old folks, while the Galaxy S4 is for young kids who appreciate “smartphones that are smarter than other smartphones“. The commercial does a good […]
