Apple asked to not call its new phone the ‘iPhone 6s’ for the silliest possible reason

Apple asked to not call its new phone the ‘iPhone 6s’ for the silliest possible reason

Apple’s next iPhone will likely be named iPhone 6s. The company is expected to launch an “S” generation of iPhones every two years, following a major redesign, and that seems to be the case for 2015. The upcoming iPhone 6s might offer a bigger “S” upgrade than any previous such model, but that might not be enough for Apple to call it the iPhone 7 all of a sudden.

However, one company is deeply affected by the iPhone 6s name choice and is urging Apple to go with iPhone 7 on September 9th as the official name of the 2015 iPhone – just check the image above, taken in New York’s Times Square. More →

10 of the best iPhone widgets in the world

10 of the best iPhone widgets in the world

By about 11 hours ago.

When Apple first added widget support to the iPhone and iPad, Apple fans had mixed feelings. Many Apple users had been waiting for widget support for years, and they had hoped to see home screen widgets similar to the ones available on Google’s Android platform. Instead, Apple confined its widget support to the Notification Center, where widgets stay hidden from sight until the user swipes down from the top of the screen.

There are definitely pros (battery life!) and cons (no zero-touch information) to Apple’s approach, but the very fact that widgets are almost always hidden from sight has led many people to forget about them all together. Let’s fix that: Here are 10 apps with some of the best iPhone widgets available right now, and many of them are completely free to download and use. More →

16GB iPhone 6s ‘confirmed’ as this year’s cheapest new iPhone, says accurate Apple insider

After plenty of back and forth on Apple’s storage plans for the iPhone 6s, more and more reports have indicated that the Cupertino-based giant is not going to grant your wish this year – make 32GB the entry-level storage tier for a new iPhone – and stick with 16GB versions for at least one more product cycle.

Two rumors have recently suggested that Apple will sell both iPhone 6s models in the same three storage options as last year’s iPhone 6, each having the same price as their respective predecessors – according to carrier sources from the Netherlands and China. A third report from an accurate Apple Insider seems to confirm storage and pricing details for the USA. More →
