It looks like Apple’s iWatch may come with a painful compromise

Despite the fact that the iWatch represents Apple’s first dive into an “exciting new product category” since it unleashed the original iPad back in 2010, the new device isn’t Apple’s most hotly anticipated launch this fall. In fact, it likely falls into the No. 3 spot behind the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone phablet. Consumers and investors alike are still waiting anxiously to see Apple’s take on wrist-worn wearables, but a new report suggests that the company may have been forced to forgo its typical no-compromise approach to mobile devices, and the result could be a big letdown for users.

How to guarantee you get today’s trade-in value for your phone even after the iPhone 6 launches

While months of leaks and rumors have painted what appears to be a very extensive picture of what we can expect from Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6, nothing is certain until the next-generation iPhone is finally unveiled on stage early next month. Well, almost nothing is certain.

There are a few things we know beyond the shadow of a doubt, and one of them is the fact that there will be a massive influx of used smartphones being sold and traded in as people upgrade to the new iPhone 6. All those trade-ins inevitably drive used phone values down, but as it turns out, there is a simple way to guarantee that you get today’s higher value for your current smartphone even if you don’t trade it in until after the iPhone 6 debuts next month.

One of the iPhone 6’s most interesting new features just leaked for the first time

Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is now less than two weeks away from its official unveiling, if a report from a solid source and Tuesday’s big leak are to be believed. With the phone expected to launch the following week on September 19th, it makes sense that the components contained within the hotly anticipated handset are now leaking like crazy.

Earlier this week, we saw a China-based cell phone parts retailer post a number of parts said to be destined for inclusion in either the iPhone 6 or the 5.5-inch iPhone phablet set to launch alongside or shortly after Apple’s flagship iPhone. Now, the retailer has added a different component that happens to be one of the iPhone 6’s most interesting new parts. More →
