Apple exec says you should never mention iPhones when discussing iPhones

Any iPhone users out there when have been around long enough to have bought an early iPhone 4 unit will remember the unexpected cellular signal loss they may have experienced. The antenna was on the outside of the phone, and Apple’s engineers didn’t foresee this problem: holding the phone by its antennas might mess with cellular reception. But then late Apple cofounder and CEO Steve Jobs famously explained that if you experienced signal issues while using the iPhone 4, you were probably holding it wrong.

Now, a different Apple executive is telling us we’ve been doing something else wrong when it comes to the iPhone. More →

Best iPhone Wallpapers 2016

This is how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours

This is how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours

By on April 29, 2016 at 10:47 AM.

Every time I publish a post that includes a photo of my iPhone at the top of the page, my email inbox and Twitter DM box fill up a little quicker than usual. Why? People always seem to love the wallpapers I use on my iPhone. I’m not a designer and I don’t do anything particularly special to find wallpapers or to make them, but I do put some effort into the wallpapers I use. There are so few things Apple allows users to do to customize the look of the iPhone, so I try whatever I can to give my phone a little extra flair.

How do I always manage to make my iPhone look so much better than yours? It’s time to let the cat out of the bag. More →

Apple Suicide

Everything we know about the suicide at Apple’s headquarters this week

This has been an incredibly difficult week for Apple. The company shed more than $40 billion in market capitalization on Tuesday evening following its fiscal first-quarter earnings report, which showed a much steeper decline than Wall Street was expecting in both profit and iPhone sales. Then, just one day later, tragedy struck Apple’s Cupertino, California headquarters when one of the company’s employees was found dead in a conference room on campus.

The story is still unfolding two days later. More →

FBI San Bernardino iPhone 5c Unlock

FBI director doesn’t even know who created the $1M iPhone-hacking device

FBI director doesn’t even know who created the $1M iPhone-hacking device

More details have emerged in the San Bernardino shooting investigation. The FBI has arrested three suspects on Thursday, though it’s not clear whether that move is connected in any way with any of the scant evidence it may have discovered on the iPhone 5c belonging to one of the shooters. However, a new report also sheds more details about the hack the feds bought to crack open the device.

Apparently, there’s a physical gadget used to unlock any iPhone 5c running iOS 9, but the FBI has no idea how it works. That’s even if it paid up to $1 million for the tool. More →

Apple Acquiring Netflix

It makes much more sense for Apple to compete with Netflix than to buy it

It makes much more sense for Apple to compete with Netflix than to buy it

With iPhone sales down, perhaps temporarily, Apple CEO Tim Cook indicated during the company’s earnings conference call this week that Apple is always on the look out for exciting new technologies and companies to acquire. Not only that, Cook suggested that Apple would be willing to shell out big bucks for a blockbuster acquisition if the right opportunity arose.

We’re always looking in the market about things that could complement things that we do today, become features in something we do, or allow us to accelerate entry into a category that we’re excited about,” Cook explained. Later on, Cook added that Apple “would definitely buy something larger than we bought thus far.”

What’s the purpose of the iPhone 7’s most puzzling new feature?

I know, I know, it’ll be a few more months before Apple reveals the secrets behind the brand new iPhone 7. But there have already been plenty of leaks that give us a boatload of information about the upcoming handset, with multiple reports agreeing on certain new features. Aside from the iPhone 6s-like design, redesigned rear antennas, dual lens camera for the 5.5-inch “Pro” version and absence of the headphone jack, there’s one mysterious iPhone 7 feature that no one has gotten to the bottom of at this point.

Apple issues statement following apparent suicide at Cupertino headquarters

Apple on Thursday morning issued an official statement after a man was found dead on Wednesday at Apple’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, California. Officials from the Santa Clara County’s Sheriff’s Department confirmed on Wednesday that they responded to a call around 8:35 a.m. local time stating that there was a “person down” on Apple’s Cupertino campus. Upon arriving at the scene they discover the body of a deceased male. The coroner is currently examining the body and the cause of death has not yet been confirmed, but reports suggest that the victim died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Now, Apple has released a statement confirming that the deceased man was indeed an Apple employee. More →

iPhone Sales Decline

All the panic surrounding Apple’s declining iPhone sales is way overblown

By on April 27, 2016 at 4:52 PM.

All the panic surrounding Apple’s declining iPhone sales is way overblown

For the first time in company history, Apple recently posted a year-over-year drop in iPhone sales. During the March 2016 quarter, Apple sold 51.1 million iPhones compared to 61.2 million iPhones sold during the same quarter a year-ago. And seeing as how the iPhone is Apple’s primary revenue driver, Apple’s earnings also took a hit, with the company posting EPS of $1.90, down from $2.33 during the year-ago quarter.

Not surprisingly, shares of Apple opened up 8% lower when trading began earlier this morning. And while shares have since climbed back up from a low of $95.98 to about $98, the stock is still down more than 6% as fears of ‘peak iPhone’ continue to grow.

iPad Speed Testing

Ultimate iPad speed shootout pits all 12 iPad models against each other

Ultimate iPad speed shootout pits all 12 iPad models against each other

Since the release of the original iPad back in 2010, Apple’s famed tablet has taken on a number of varied form factors; it’s gotten smaller (iPad Mini), unbelievably thin (iPad Air), and more recently, it’s gotten a whole lot bigger thanks to the iPad Pro.

And much like we’ve seen with the iPhone, Apple has, more often than not, improved the iPad’s hardware consistently year after year, with the iPad 3 perhaps being the lone outlier. In an interesting effort to see how performance varies across every iPad model ever released – an astounding 12 devices in total – the YouTube channel EverythingApplePro recently dusted off Apple’s older iPads and put together a well-done video comparison.

Suffice it to say, Apple’s hardware has improved tremendously over the last six years.
