Published by on Sep 1st, 2014, 2 Comments

iphone5The bane of any smartphone user’s existence must surely be the ever constant need to charge your device. In the world of power hungry smartphones there exists no place for faulty batteries which decreases your already limited amount of battery life. Unfortunately these mistakes do happen and have happened to a small amount of unlucky iPhone 5 owners. Apple have launched a program which will replace certain faulty batteries in the iPhone 5 free of charge, their statement reads:

“Apple has determined that a very small percentage of iPhone 5 devices may suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently. The affected iPhone 5 devices were sold between September 2012 and January 2013 and fall within a limited serial number range. If your iPhone 5 is experiencing these symptoms and meets the eligibility requirements noted below, Apple will replace your iPhone 5 battery, free of charge.”

Here is what you have to do. (more…)

Aerial shots of first stages of Apple’s spaceship campus

Apple Spaceship Campus

Almost a year ago, we reported on Apple’s extensive plans for their new, spaceship-like campus in Cupertino, California. And while we know that the project has been on track for quite some time, one YouTuber filmed some sneaky ‘spy shots’ of the campus from high up above.

The spaceship campus, which gets its name from it’s circular design looking very much like a mothership, started construction at the start of the year.

Now still in its first stage of construction, the campus looks set to be the biggest Apple campus as of yet. The building will sit on a mammoth 2.8 million square-feet and will house up to 14 000 employees.

It is four stories high, with a 4-story ‘ring of glass’ surrounding the entire building. It is designed to be a ‘green’ building with the roof made up entirely of solar panels.

Although it doesn’t look like it now, the building will be surrounded by acres of green space. For now, however, it wouldn’t be strange if you confused the construction sight for some weird, alien-like crop circle. (more…)

China Telecom accidentally leaks iPhone 6 image on Weibo

iPhone 6 leak Weibo

Well isn’t this a fortunate accident. According to various Chinese reports, China Telecom has accidentally leaked an official looking image of the iPhone 6 on Weibo – China’s version of Twitter.

The image is the first of the supposed official iPhone 6 images. And while there is (naturally) still speculation concerning the image, it is the most official looking picture we’ve ever seen.

Adding fuel to the flame that it is, in fact, an official image, is the fact the China Telecom subsequently deleted the post. Obviously, they realized their mistake, and tried to cover it up.

However, as we all know, once you put something up on the internet, someone will always find a way to save it.  (more…)

iPhone 6 to include 128GB storage options

iphone-6-side

Some people have likened the choice of which iPhone variant to choose to something a bit more dramatic to reality, but we can understand their opinions. With Apple blindly sticking to the ‘no expandable storage’ mantra, some have said that the price difference between the different storage option isn’t quite worth it with Android devices offering expandable microSD slots which will cost you a lot less.

Usually the 16GB model is akin to other flagship phones when it comes to price and the larger storage options much pricier than its competition. (more…)

Report: Apple plans reversible USB cable for iPhone 6

Reversible USB port

We all know that USB plugs can be annoying. There is only one ‘right side up’ and more often than not, we get frustrated by first having to figure our which side up is the right side, before you can plug your device into a USB port.

Apple is reportedly looking to eradicate this frustration, by making their Lightning cable for the iPhone 6 reversible.

This means that the cable will be able to plug into any USB port form any orientation – thus eliminating the struggle of having to figure out which side is ‘up’.  (more…)
