iPhone 6 production

Another day, another iPhone 6 rumour. As we draw closer and closer to the (expected) announcement date of the iPhone 6 in September, the rumours are churning out hard and fast.

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…)

One thing you can’t ignore, no matter which mobile operating system you prefer, is that iOS changed the way we used our cellphones and completely made certain smartphone features standard. Are the advances in iOS (which was called iPhone OS until 2009) really as minimal as many say? Take a look at TheVerge’s look in the video below: (more…)

 New Apple Ad

We’ll never know what it’s like to be a parent or how much our parents did for us until the day we become parents ourselves. What we do know, however, is that it’s not easy and that you need all the help you can get.

This is what Apple is trying to convey in their new ad for the iPhone 5S – that it can be a great parenting tool to help you help the little ones.

If you’re already in you’re twenties, chances are your parents had little or no help from technology when you were growing up and certainly no help from a smart smartphone. But nowadays, for kids growing up i the digital age, an iPhone or any other smart device, will be a common sight.

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…)
