Could this be what the iPhone 6 will look like?

Published by on Apr 9th, 2014, No Comments


With the build up to the official debut of the new iPhone 6 growing stronger and more intense everyday, it’s no surprise that Apple fans, designers and tech sites and journalists will come up with their own idea of the iPhone 6.

Imaginations have run wild over the past few months, with dozens of people submitting their interpretation (or rather, expectation) of the iPhone 6 to various websites.

A couple of weeks ago, we showed you designer Sam Beckett’s vision of an iPhone Air. While Beckett’s version of the ‘new’ iPhone went viral, many more followed suit and came up with their own ideas.

The latest mock-up to hit the interwebs, is this one by popular technology website, Macrumors.  (more…)

iPhone 6 Screens

With the build up to the release of the new iPhone 6, more an more information is beng leaked about how far into production the phone actually is, and of course, when we can finally expect it to be launched.

Another tidbit of information joining the iPhone 6 build-up, is the reported production time for the phone’s screens. As we already know, the iPhone 6 will be available in two sizes; a 4.7-inch screen and a 5.5-inch screen.

According to reports by Reuters, suppliers are to start manufacturing the new iPhone screens next month, in May. Reuters claim that this information was obtained by supply chain stores who (obviously) requested to stay anonymous. (more…)

Pretty cool: an ‘iPhone Air’ concept

iPhone Air

For as long as Apple promises new iPhones, people from all across the globe will let their imaginations run and come up with their own iPhone concepts.

Some are great and very inspiring, while others are far fetched and well, downright ugly.

However, this new concept from designer Sam Beckett, falls under the ‘great and inspiring category.

Beckett’s concept is for a proposed iPhone Air. Now, there have been no official reports or claims of a possible iPhone Air in the pipeline, but considering the fact that Apple has launched an iPad Air along with it’s MacBook Air, the idea is not as far fetched.  (more…)

Will iOS 8 be able to track your fitness?

Published by on Feb 3rd, 2014, No Comments


While apps and smart devices are getting more concerned about your health, it seems that Apple’s plans for iOS 8 will also include fitness and health tracking – if these latest reports turn out to be true.

According to 9to5Mac, iOS 8 software will be able to track your vital signs by using intelligent sensors installed in your iPhone.

iOS 8 – which is codenamed Okemo – will have a key feature that will be able to track your heart rate, check your blood pressure and even your glucose levels. It will also be able to give you vital fitness stats such as the amount of steps you’ve taken in the day and how many calories you’ve burned.

While iOS 7 was more focused on a new design, iOS 8 looks set to be less focused on the interface and more focused on what new innovations it can bring to the table. And, just as we have come to expect from Apple, they are on the forefront of emerging trends – such as health apps and devices.  (more…)

Apple reports record iPhone and iPad sales

Published by on Jan 28th, 2014, No Comments


The holidays were really friendly for sales of Apple’s products. We’re talking 51 million iPhones sold – an all-time quarterly record – up from 47.8 million during the same quarter last year. iPad sales reached a record quarterly high as well, at 26 million up from 22.9 million during the same year-ago quarter. Profit, meanwhile, comes in at $13.1 billion, showing no change year-over-year.

It’s unclear just how the iPhone sales break down between the iPhone 5c and 5s models, as Apple didn’t offer those numbers. Apple CEO Tim Cook did say, however, that more iPhone 5S’s were sold over that period. (more…)

Apple’s iPhone 6 will come in two sizes

Published by on Jan 22nd, 2014, 7 Comments


The bi-annual excitement of Apple releasing their new iPhone design is upon us. I call it that, because in true Apple tradition they will release a new design this year, not just a revisited design that comes with the ‘S’ smartphone extensions – and this year the ‘C’ extension.

One of the major themes that is attached itself to rumours of Apple’s 2014 smartphone ambitions is that instead of just one iPhone 6, we might see a pair of models, differing mainly in their screen sizes. There are various sources citing various ‘facts’ about this year’s iPhone 6. The newest revelation is that Apple will be abandoning their 4-inch screen size altogether. (more…)

iPhone 6 frame and camera details revealed

Last week was a whirlwind in the form of CES 2014. If you are a mobile fan and like the Android or Windows 8.1/Windows Phone platforms, then you are completely set at the trade show. Apple enthusiasts, on the other hand, have a lot less to look forward to.

Just because Apple is not present at CES doesn’t mean we need to ignore them completely. Apple’s manufacturing partners may be up to something of their own in Southeast Asia, and we’ve just gotten our ears on news about Apple and it’s purportedly an image of a metal frame for the iPhone 6 (below).

Happy 7th Birthday, iPhone

Published by on Jan 10th, 2014, No Comments


There are a few things in life, specifically in the current digital age, that really transforms the world and makes such a significant impact that it will never be forgotten. One of those has been one of Apple’s most prolific inventions – the iPhone.

Today, 7 years ago, the late Steve Jobs introduced the world to the device that would soon become synonymous with the word ‘smartphone’ and mobile innovation.

To be fair, there have been some equally great smartphones released on the market that has given the almighty iPhone a hard run for its money (hello, Samsung Galaxy). Yet the iPhone still lathers itself in unfathomable popularity and takes its seat in pop culture royalty.  (more…)
