Nearly a year and a half since Apple introduced a “budget” iPhone in the form of the slightly more affordable plastic iPhone 5c, rumours pinpoint that Apple again intends to return to making a lower-cost smartphone, in the form of the iPhone 6c.

Recent leaks seemingly confirm this, showcasing a bright pink plastic iPhone 6 that seemingly houses a 4″ display.

iPhone 6

Another day, another Apple rumour. As we inch closer and closer to the fall (or, Spring for us Southern Hemisphere beings) when new Apple products usually make their debut, rumours are starting to spread about the company’s proposed new devices.

This latest rumour comes from Digitimes, who are citing ‘industry sources’. These ‘industry sources’ are claiming that Apple is planning on releasing three iPhone devices this fall.

Expected to launch in the second half of 2015, if the rumours turn out to be true, Apple will release three new flagship iPhone models; the iPhone 6S, the iPhone 6S Plus and, much to our surprise, a new iPhone 6C model.  (more…)

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

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 may release a 4-inch iPhone again… in 2015

iPhone-6 and iPhone 5

Is it just me, or does Apple not completely know what they want to do these days? Before the iPhone 6 was released, their mantra has been for years that “the phone needs to be the perfect size for one-handed use,” which in their eyes meant “4 inches at the most.” Then the iPhone 6 was released amidst a lot of pressure from fans, critics and investors alike saying that the market has moved on to larger screens.

Now we get some rumours that Apple may be back-tracking a bit in terms of the perfect screen size. Was 4-inches the perfect size, which we saw on the iPhone 5? (more…)

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 killed our two biggest industries” – PM of Finland

pm-finland

My first reaction when reading about the Finnish Prime Minister saying that Apple has killed off the Scandinavian county’s two biggest industries was “What is the second?” Of course, Apple had a big role to play in the downfall of Nokia (although it wasn’t the only contributing factor), but in my ignorance I couldn’t think of another industry Apple could affect so adversely.
