You’ll be very lucky to get your hands on a 5.5-inch sapphire iPhone this year

A new report from Asia claims that Apple will indeed use sapphire glass covers for some of its iPhone 6 models, but that the sapphire iPhone 6 will be a rarity this year. Digitimes says that GT Advanced Technologies, Apple’s sapphire-making partner, will not reach full capacity in 2014 and adds that sapphire screen covers will be extremely expensive this year. More →

iWatch 2015 Release Date

More evidence that we won’t see the iWatch until 2015

More evidence that we won’t see the iWatch until 2015

A 2014 release date for Apple’s wearable device is looking less and less likely as new reports continuously reaffirm that manufacturing issues are holding back mass production of the iWatch. Speaking with China’s Economic Daily News, sources say that although suppliers are set to begin assembling the units in September, they will only be able to produce around 1 million per month. This wouldn’t be enough for a full retail release before the end of the year.

iPhone 6 Announced

An Apple carrier partner just confirmed the iPhone 6

An Apple carrier partner just confirmed the iPhone 6

By on August 22, 2014 at 11:10 AM.

Just about everyone who cares at all about smartphones knows that Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is just weeks away from being announced during a huge press conference on September 9th. Even still, Apple generally likes to be the first company to announce its new devices and make them official before its carrier partners and distributors start sharing their plans for new iPhones.

At least one wireless carrier didn’t get that memo, however, as China Telecom has apparently just confirmed the iPhone 6 publicly and shared a few details about the device. More →

Steve Jobs Speech

Incredible easter egg reveals Steve Jobs’s most amazing speech hidden in your Mac

Incredible easter egg reveals Steve Jobs’s most amazing speech hidden in your Mac

Late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was a man of many talents, and among them was his uncanny ability to motivate people. Privately, numerous accounts suggest much of his motivating was brought about by striking fear into employees. Publicly, however, Jobs was an amazing speaker and he proved it time and time again during Apple keynotes and other events.

But Jobs’s most amazing speech was likely the commencement speech he gave in 2005 at Stanford University — and as it turns out, an awesome easter egg hides that very speech in your Mac. More →

iPhone 6 Release Date

Apple is going to extreme lengths to make sure your iPhone 6 is just perfect

Apple is going to extreme lengths to make sure your iPhone 6 is just perfect

How much does Apple want to make sure the iPhone 6 is the best it can be? So much that it’s willing to make a last minute change just weeks before its launch that has apparently left its supply chain partners “scrambling.” According to a new report from Reuters, Apple this month sent a key iPhone 6 component “back to the drawing board” for a redesign after the company found that it didn’t make the device’s display bright enough to meet its exacting standards.

Don’t want the bigger iPhone 6? Then check out these killer iPhone 5s and 5c deals

Not all iPhone fans will want the bigger iPhone 6 models, and many people might be waiting for Apple to finally unveil its 2014 iPhones just so they can purchase a discounted, on-contract iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c. From previous years’ experience, we know that Apple likely offers discounts on its older iPhone models when it releases new ones and this year probably won’t be any different. However, prospective iPhone buyers who don’t want to wait until September can already check Walmart’s new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c deals, which may offer even better prices.

The best evidence yet that Apple is finally ready to mass produce the iWatch

We’ve heard so many wildly contradictory reports about Apple’s iWatch over the past several weeks, although we feel confident in saying that the company’s first wearable device is going to release later than the iPhone 6, which is expected to be unveiled on September 9th. 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman has gotten his hands on some new documents related to Apple partner GT-Advanced Technologies’ sapphire production plant that indicate Apple is at long last getting ready to start mass producing the iWatch.
