Apple sold its billionth iPhone last week

Apple sold its billionth iPhone last week

When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone back in 2007, the Apple co-founder laid out a rather modest goal for the company’s revolutionary smartphone — to sell 1 million units. At the time, 1 million in unit sales represented approximately 1% of the global smartphone market. And not only did Apple reach that goal with ease, it quickly became apparent that the iPhone itself was a juggernaut, a once-in-a-lifetime product that would forever change the way we interact with technology.

With each passing quarter, iPhone sales continued to skyrocket. Indeed, it wasn’t until the company’s March 2016 quarter that iPhone sales would experience their first year-over-year sales decline. That said, Apple last week reached an impressive new milestone — 1 billion iPhones sold.

iPhone 7 Features

Leak may have just confirmed the secret Apple had up its sleeve for the iPhone 7

Leak may have just confirmed the secret Apple had up its sleeve for the iPhone 7

Apple’s iPhone 7 is shaping up to be a more intriguing device than we may have originally given it credit for. According to a new report from Macotakara — a site with an impressive track record regarding Apple rumors — the home button on Apple’s next-gen iPhone will sit flush with the screen and will not move when pressed. Instead, Apple is planning to incorporate a series of sensors underneath the home button that will trigger a slight vibration when pressed. This, in turn, will provide users with the illusion that the iPhone 7 home button is a mechanical button.

While we’ve seen rumblings pointing to a home button redesign before, Macotakara’s corroboration arguably provides exceedingly convincing proof that the iPhone’s tried and true home button will see an innovative new redesign come September.

Two new videos get up close and personal with the iPhone 7 like never before

Two new videos get up close and personal with the iPhone 7 like never before

If all goes according to plan, we’re currently about a month and a week away from seeing Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus get official. A recent report from a reputable source has pegged September 16th as Apple’s release date for the new iPhone 7 models, which means an announcement will likely come on the Tuesday or Wednesday prior to that date. Monday September 5th is Labor Day, so Apple certainly isn’t going to host a press conference on the 5th. That means that we can expect to see the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus become a reality on either Tuesday September 6th, or Wednesday September 7th.

Of course, you don’t have to wait that long at all to get up close and personal with Apple’s upcoming new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. More →

Set aside your eulogies, Apple’s iPad isn’t dead just yet

Set aside your eulogies, Apple’s iPad isn’t dead just yet

The iPad burst onto the tech scene in 2010 like a runaway train with no brakes, quickly and easily breaking every type of consumer electronics sales record imaginable. The narrative at the time was that Steve Jobs and Apple had done it again: whereas many other companies had previously tried and failed to successfully bring a tablet to market, Apple’s iPad — like the iPod and the iPhone before it — managed to single-handedly create a new market out of thin air.

Apple’s services category will be the ‘size of a Fortune 100 company’ next year

Apple’s earnings for its June 2016 quarter gave investors a whole lot to cheer about. Even though iPhone, iPad and Mac sales were all down compared to the same quarter a year-ago, Apple’s quarter was not nearly as grim as many investors were anticipating. What’s more, there was a familiar bright spot amidst Apple’s earnings report yesterday — revenue from the company’s various line of Services.

iPhone Tricks 2016

Weird iOS glitch lets you make all your iPhone folders round

Weird iOS glitch lets you make all your iPhone folders round

Remember back in April when we told you about a nifty trick that let you completely change the look of your iPhone’s home screen without having to jailbreak your device? For some odd reason, using a very small image as the wallpaper on your iPhone caused iOS to hiccup and display all of your device’s folder icons as circles rather than the standard rounded squares.

Well, this bizarre glitch is back and it still works on the latest version of iOS, which Apple just released last week. More →

Apple Earnings Release

Apple reports Q3 earnings: iPhone sales continue to slide, but Apple beats estimates

Apple reports Q3 earnings: iPhone sales continue to slide, but Apple beats estimates

By on July 26, 2016 at 4:31 PM.

What goes up must come down, and Apple is in the midst of a tough lesson in gravity at the moment. The company’s second-quarter earnings report this past April marked the first time Apple had ever reported a decline in iPhone sales. Of course, the decline was expected by anyone who was paying attention — after astronomical iPhone 6 sales fueled by pent-up demand for iPhones with larger displays, there was simply no way Apple was going to be able to keep pace with an incremental “S” upgrade. What was unexpected, however, was how dramatic that sales decline would be.

With the second quarter behind us and serious questions surrounding the future of Apple’s core business swirling, all eyes were still fixed on the iPhone ahead of Tuesday’s fiscal Q3 earnings report. More →

How To Jailbreak iOS 9.3.3

How to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 on your iPhone or iPad without ever connecting to a PC

How to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 on your iPhone or iPad without ever connecting to a PC

Chinese iPhone hackers just released a new jailbreak tool for the latest versions of iOS and not one day later, we already have a better option.

On Monday we told you about the newly updated Pangu jailbreak tool, which offered anyone with a Windows PC a means to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad running any version of iOS from iOS 9.2 through to the just-released iOS 9.3.3. There are some big caveats beyond the need for a Windows PC though, namely that this was a “semi-untethered” jailbreak that require a few extra steps each time a phone is rebooted.

Now, just one day later, there’s a new and improved jailbreak that could be the simplest way to jailbreak and iPhone that we’ve seen in years. More →
