iPhone 6 leak Weibo

Well isn’t this a fortunate accident. According to various Chinese reports, China Telecom has accidentally leaked an official looking image of the iPhone 6 on Weibo – China’s version of Twitter.

The image is the first of the supposed official iPhone 6 images. And while there is (naturally) still speculation concerning the image, it is the most official looking picture we’ve ever seen.

Adding fuel to the flame that it is, in fact, an official image, is the fact the China Telecom subsequently deleted the post. Obviously, they realized their mistake, and tried to cover it up.

However, as we all know, once you put something up on the internet, someone will always find a way to save it.  (more…)

Some people have likened the choice of which iPhone variant to choose to something a bit more dramatic to reality, but we can understand their opinions. With Apple blindly sticking to the ‘no expandable storage’ mantra, some have said that the price difference between the different storage option isn’t quite worth it with Android devices offering expandable microSD slots which will cost you a lot less.

Usually the 16GB model is akin to other flagship phones when it comes to price and the larger storage options much pricier than its competition. (more…)

Reversible USB port

We all know that USB plugs can be annoying. There is only one ‘right side up’ and more often than not, we get frustrated by first having to figure our which side up is the right side, before you can plug your device into a USB port.

Apple is reportedly looking to eradicate this frustration, by making their Lightning cable for the iPhone 6 reversible.

This means that the cable will be able to plug into any USB port form any orientation – thus eliminating the struggle of having to figure out which side is ‘up’.  (more…)

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…)

Apple to develop contactless wireless charging for peripherals

Apple-battery-lifeWireless charging has been around for a couple of years now but we can’t yet call it true wireless. Yes there aren’t any wires involved when charging but you still have to put the device on a charging pad of some sort. Apple though has stepped up the plate to produce “true wireless” charging. 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…)
