New iPhone 6 component leak reveals major new features

A new iPhone 6 internal component has been leaked, with Nowhereelse posting images that show the purported main iPhone 6 printed circuit board (PCB) as received from a reliable Chinese source. The leaked logic board does not have any of the chips you’d expect to see on it, and appears to fit the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model. The component is similar to the iPhone 5s’ logic board, although it has a longer top section, with MacRumors noticing that screw holes in this elongated area fit screw holes from a leaked iPhone 6 back case.

Apple already updated the MacBook Pro with slightly faster processors and cheaper prices across the board, and launched an even cheaper iMac version earlier this year.

Apple’s $30 million Swell acquisition could be big for iTunes Radio

Apple’s $30 million Swell acquisition could be big for iTunes Radio

For the time being, Apple’s iTunes Radio product is something of an also-ran. It’s a nice value-add for iOS device owners, allowing them to stream Pandora-like Radio stations for free, but it doesn’t really offer any compelling features compared to bigger rival services. According to a new report, however, that may soon change. More →

Massive increase in R&D spending suggests awesome new Apple products are on the way

It’s been a long time since Apple had anything to prove in the mobile world, but as iPhone iterations have become increasingly indistinguishable from one another, the Cupertino crew realized it might be time to catch up with the rest of the industry. And catch up they will — this year’s iPhone 6 display is expected to stretch to 4.7 inches and its phablet counterpart might feature an enormous 5.5-inch display. More →

Video: Don’t be fooled by this extremely detailed iPhone 6 clone running Android

The iPhone 6 isn’t even out yet and it already has a few clones that mimic its appearance and software very well, with 9to5Google having found a new video hands-on demo of one such device. While the clone is based on the leaked dummy iPhone 6 units that flooded the Internet and is fully working, it’s not actually running iOS 8. Instead, it’s running an Android version that has been customized to look just like iOS. More →

Video: Want to see what happens when an iPhone 5s gets run over by a train? Of course you do

The iPhone 5s is amazingly solid for a smartphone made entirely of glass and ultra-thin aluminum. It looks great, it feels great and it can survive its fair share of drops as long as it doesn’t hit a hard surface on its corner. But can it survive being run over by a speeding train? More →

Jimmy Kimmel pranks strangers with a fake Apple iTime smartwatch

Jimmy Kimmel is the best in the business when it comes to making unsuspecting passersby look like complete morons. On a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel’s crew took to Hollywood Blvd. with Apple’s unreleased iTime smartwatch, first revealed in a patent application earlier this week, to gauge the public reaction. The only problem was that the watch in question was actually a $20 Casio watch with an Apple logo stuck to the back. As you can probably guess, a lot of people didn’t catch on, and the resulting video is pretty hysterical. More →
