iPhone 6 sapphire

Every couple of weeks a new iPhone 6 rumour or headline pops up. This week, we’ve already seen another rumour about the much anticipated phone’s new, improved camera.

Another feature of the phone that has been discussed (well, speculated over) at length, is it’s rumoured sapphire crystal display.

The idea with the sapphire crystal screen, is that it is stronger and much more ‘scratch resistant’ than the current Gorilla Glass on the iPhone 5S. Theoretically, the sapphire crystal screen would be much more robust than the Gorilla Glass and one YouTuber, Marques Brownlee (or MKBHD) set out to ‘torture test’ the new, iPhone 6 screen.

Now, we have no idea where Brownlee got his hands on a prototype of the iPhone 6 screen. We can’t verify whether it’s legit or not, but nevertheless – it’s a pretty interesting video to watch.  (more…)

In Apple’s latest ad, entitled ‘Parenthood’, the company attempts to show us how much the iPhone can help you with your kids. (more…)

Bentley ad iPhone

While there have been many great ads over the years, and there will be many more to come, this latest offering from Bentley is quite something.

Not only is it creatively genius and aesthetically pleasing, it’s also very clever – both in the message it brings across and the way it was made.

When California-based ad agency Reza & Co. were asked by Bentley to come up with a creative ad idea to promote their new Mulsanne sedan, as well as it’s new iPad compatibility feature, the company went straight to the source.

Under the creative direction of Austin Reza, the team decided they would film and edit the entire ad by using an iPhone 5S and an iPad Air. (more…)

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.

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…)
