iPhone 6?

With the iPhone 6 allegedly being released on September 9 at Apple’s reported “big media event”, speculation and rumours have definitely gone up a gear as the anticipation just becomes too much for some to bear.

And while rumours are just that – hearsay – it’s the hard evidence (read: photos) that really grabs our attention. This is why we thought this latest bout of ‘leaked’ iPhone 6 images are something to write home about. It also features the alleged phone in a way we haven’t seen before; in it’s retail packaging.

Posted by Tech Radar yesterday, the images show the alleged iPhone 6 in it’s Apple retail box. The box, which looks exactly like iPhone boxes from years past, distinctly says ‘iPhone 6’ on the side.

According to Tech Radar, their source attributes the photos to an Apple beta tester, but has given no more information than that. (more…)

The Surface Pro 3 is the tablet that is supposed to replace your laptop, or at least according to Microsoft. While we don’t feel we’re quite there yet, it is a step in the right direction. To show off some of the functionality of the Surface Pro 3, Microsoft are reigniting the Mac vs PC battle from yesteryear with its latest ads.

The first ad called “Power” starts off with a Mac user curious about a full version of Adobe Photoshop running on the Surface Pro 3, demonstrating the device’s laptop and tablet capabilities. (more…)

The tech giant has been awarded a patent for new technology that will enable low-powered devices to be charged wirelessly within an specific range. (more…)

Finally, we have a (possible) date for the much anticipated iPhone 6 launch event – that is if these reports are to be believed.

According to various news sources, Apple has scheduled a “big media event” for September 9th and, by looking at all their previous September media events, this might be the day that we finally get introduced to the new iPhone 6.

The possible event was first reported by Re/code and quickly followed up with reports by Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal. Now, as we know, these sources are usually on the ball when it comes to rumours.

However, nothing is set in stone unless Apple officially confirms – which, as you may have guessed, they haven’t.  (more…)

Brikk iPhone 6

No date has even been set for the iPhone 6 launch and Apple hasn’t said a word, but, you can now pre-order a solid gold iPhone 6 – if you have the cash to burn.

Los Angeles-based luxury retailer, Brikk, has announced on their website that they are now taking pre-orders for either gold or platinum plated iPhone 6 models.

Those who seek more than functionality when it comes to their smartphone, can order a 24-karat yellow or pink gold iPhone 6 or, if you don’t want to be as flashy but still ensure top luxury, you can also order a pure platinum iPhone.

Then there is the ultimate in luxury plated iPhones – and one we’re sure Paris Hilton will like to get her hands on – the diamond encrusted, 24-karat gold iPhone 6.

Along with the solid gold plating, you can also request Brikk to have the Apple logo of your iPhone encrusted in 1.068 carats worth of sparkly diamonds. This gold plated, diamond encrusted iPhone 6 will set you back a mere $8,400 (or R89,139,12 – but who’s counting?) (more…)
