Poll shows Apple users would prefer a thicker iPhone with more battery power

Published by on Feb 26th, 2015, No Comments

apple_batteryAh battery life, the bane of a smartphone user’s existence. Clearly classified as a first world problem, but can give you grey hairs and increased blood pressure any day of the week. A recent poll of over 3,100 9to5Mac readers indicates that most are not satisfied with current-generation iPhone battery life.

Although the iPhone 6 has come a long way since the almost continuously tethered iPhone 5, it is still miles behind something like the HTC One M8 which can easily last up to two days. (more…)

Opinion: the iPod is now history

In the early noughties, the dashing playboy conglomerate Apple launched a revolutionary product. In totality, it was a fairly simple device; a white brick of musical power that brought the tones of divas and the raw power of guitars to the masses. It was called the iPod, and everyone had to have one.

There was a whiff of rebellion in the air; a new challenger to the then-bloodless gadget throne, and the supporters of this rebellion not only clamoured behind their rectangular champion, but adorned themselves with a distinctive mark: the timeless set of white earphones.

Plainly, the iPod has ever – and will never – hit that peak again. Like an older Rocky Balboa, the iPod is the device people love to root for but are quick to forget. Rocky’s son has since entered the ring – in the form of the iPhone – and standing toe-to-toe, the iPod is a dated piece of technology that lacks a purpose and direction in its twilight years.

Apple iPhone 6 Review: Still the go-to smartphone?

Published by on Jan 20th, 2015, 3 Comments

iPhone-204Apple introduced the iPhone 6 models in September last year and the devices made it to South Africa by the end of October, which in itself was a great surprise for Apple consumers of our rainbow nation. The iPhone 6 range is supposed to be the “game-changer” model for the Cupertino based company. Apple finally caved on the idea of a larger phone and the iPhone 6 (at 4.7 inches) and iPhone 6 Plus (at 5.5 inches) clearly shoves Apple out of the “4-inches-is-perfect-Steve-Jobs” mentality.

As an Apple user with a perfectly timed Vodacom contract I was able to pick up the new iPhone 6 a week after its launch and have been using it for a little over two months. This review will hopefully provide an unbiased (as far as possible) view of the iPhone 6 (4.7-inch model) and whether Apple has been able to step out of their comfort zone and produce a truly top of the range smartphone.

Apple’s investment in bringing sapphire technology to the iPhone proves that the company is interested in improving the durability of its smartphone lineup. Surely the company’s plans came to an abrupt after the whole GT Advanced fiasco, but that isn’t the only case where we’ve seen Cupertino bet its cards on durability. (more…)

Apple may discontinue iPhone 5c

Published by on Nov 27th, 2014, 4 Comments

iphone5cApple tried something different in 2013, but instead of listening to consumers and making their screens bigger, Apple introduced a budget iPhone – the iPhone 5c. The Cupertino based company isn’t really one to admit defeat but you could say the the iPhone 5c is an exception. Tim Cook has admitted in the past that the phone has not met sales expectations in 2013 which left Apple with a ton of inventory. Is it the end of the road for the iPhone 5c? (more…)
