iPhone Slow vs Samsung Galaxy Slow

Is Apple intentionally slowing older iPhones to make you buy new ones?

Is Apple intentionally slowing older iPhones to make you buy new ones?

The New York Times cried wolf in late October last year, observing that the iPhone 4 has became more sluggish following the iOS 7 update and wondering, without any kind of data to back it up other than one user’s experience, whether Apple has intentionally slowed down performance on older smartphone models to convince more iPhone users to upgrade. However, the publication is now back with a more scientific approach to the quandary. In a new piece penned by Harvard economics professor Sendhil Mullainathan, the publication draws our attention to the correlation between iPhone launches and the perceived slowness of older devices. Similarly, the study looks at Galaxy S phone slowness and relation to new Galaxy S model launches. More →

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’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 →
