This is what a more fashionable Apple Watch might look like

We’re at least a few months out from the release of the Apple Watch, but just about everyone has sounded off with their opinions of Apple’s first wearable. Whether its watchmakers or the general public, there seems to have been a wide range of reactions. One of the groups that many of us were most interested to hear from was the fashion industry, if for no other reason than to know whether or not we’d look ridiculous wearing an Apple Watch. The response was divisive, but many designers were impressed with the smartwatch. More →

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Sales

Chinese workers make $17 a day building the iPhone 6, but it’ll cost them $4,000 to buy one

Chinese workers make $17 a day building the iPhone 6, but it’ll cost them $4,000 to buy one

There’s no doubt about it, the iPhone 6 launch is the biggest handset launch of the year. Apple had sold well over 4 million iPhone 6 units during preorder availability, but that didn’t stop thousands of buyers from lining up in front of Apple retail stores in the various markets, days ahead of the actual launch. But as many reports have shown, not all of them are doing it to buy an actual iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for themselves. More →

iPhone 6 Security and Privacy

iPhone 6 still susceptible to law enforcement spying, despite beefed up privacy and security features

iPhone 6 still susceptible to law enforcement spying, despite beefed up privacy and security features

Apple may be focusing on ensuring customers that their personal data stored on iOS and OS X devices is safer and more private than ever, but that doesn’t mean law enforcement and spy agencies won’t be able to access iOS 8 devices anymore. Wired points us to a new blog post published by security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski, who says that regardless of the steps Apple has taken to further protect personal data and regardless of whether the company is willing to help such agencies, they’ll still be able to force their way into an iPhone 6 or any iOS device running Apple’s latest operating system.

Apple Store iPhone 6 Lines

iPhone fans who sleep outside Apple Stores are ridiculous… and I think they’re great

iPhone fans who sleep outside Apple Stores are ridiculous… and I think they’re great

Let’s get this out of the way: There is simply no sane reason to spend days sleeping outside the Apple Store just so you can be among the first people to get the new iPhone. This is especially true because you have the opportunity to both preorder the new device online or to buy it at a number of other retail locations that won’t be as crowded. Nonetheless, while I’m not an iPhone user and I would never sleep outside a store for any smartphone, I really admire iPhone fans’ passion despite the fact that I also think they’re ridiculous.

iPhone 6: This might be Apple’s smartest marketing trick for selling even more units

Apple will sell an impressive number of handsets during its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch weekend, including the already announced 4 million-plus preorders placed in just one day, but the company may have a secret marketing trick up its sleeve compared to rivals that should help it sell even more iPhone 6 models in following months.

The iPhone 6 just isn’t cool enough for some consumers

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are poised to be the biggest launches in the history of the company. Thousands of fans lined up for days in anticipation of the release while others got up at 3 a.m. last week to preorder online before the first batch inevitably sold out. In other words, iPhone is as hot a commodity now as it was last year… but is it still cool to own an iPhone? More →

iPhone 6 vs iPhone Upgrade

‘Mother of all upgrades:’ From iPhone 3G (iOS 4) to iPhone 6 (iOS 8)

‘Mother of all upgrades:’ From iPhone 3G (iOS 4) to iPhone 6 (iOS 8)

Tim Cook was apparently not kidding when he told The Wall Street Journal that the iPhone 6 models will trigger the “mother of all upgrades,” as one MacRumors forum poster just revealed. Forum member Kalsta upgraded from the iPhone 3G all the way up to iPhone 6, in what can only be described as a massive upgrade for an iPhone owner using ancient software and hardware, at least by today’s smartphone standards.

How to safely transfer all your data from your old iPhone to iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus

So, you just got your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, either after waiting in a tremendously long line or after waiting for hours for that delivery guy to show up with your preordered unit, and now you’re finally ready to start using it as your next phone. But you also want to make sure that all your data from your previous iPhone model is properly moved to your brand new toy. For many longtime iPhone users, this procedure is a piece of cake and they’re already prepared, but many others might not be aware of what they’re supposed to do next. More →

This is how much an iPhone 6 will actually cost you

Combining one of the most significant hardware evolutions in the history of the iPhone with a host of brand new features, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were no-brainers for many Apple fans. We’ve seen thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of customers lined up for the iPhone 6 all over the world, but countless others are waiting to see the widespread reaction (or just waiting for their upgrade date).

Oh no! Your worst iPhone 6 Plus fear has been confirmed

Oh no! Your worst iPhone 6 Plus fear has been confirmed

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus finally hit store shelves on Friday in many markets across the globe, and some buyers already went ahead and put both devices through drop tests right after leaving Apple’s retail stores. While the iPhone 6 models have a sturdy design, chances are that non-sapphire display will break in certain cases, requiring users to shell out additional cash for repairs. Luckily, it appears that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are even easier to repair than last year’s models, according to iFixit. More →

Conan Apple U2 Parody

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Conan thinks Apple could do more to help U2 haters

Inexplicably, the biggest tech-related controversy of the month has without a doubt been the release of U2’s new album. When Tim Cook and Bono announced that Songs of Innocence would be injected into everyone’s iTunes account without their permission, the Internet proceeded to lose its collective mind. There were op-eds, angry tweets and enough vitriol to force Apple to provide a simple solution for removing the album that it paid $100 million to give out for free. But what if Apple didn’t go far enough? More →
