Here’s how Apple will make sure you can buy a new iPhone 6 next month

Here’s how Apple will make sure you can buy a new iPhone 6 next month

By on August 14, 2014 at 9:55 AM.

Each year, rumors of impending iPhone shortages at launch tend to subside as Apple and its supply partners miraculously find ways around various manufacturing difficulties in just the nick of time. This year, however, Apple’s move to finally give consumers what they want with a larger display on the iPhone 6 will undoubtedly make keeping up with demand at launch even more difficult than it normally is. And make no mistake, keeping up with iPhone demand is no easy task — Apple sold 9 million handsets through the iPhone 5s and 5c’s first weekend of availability, alone.

So this year, Apple has reportedly made a big change that will help ensure there are enough iPhones to go around when the hotly anticipated new iPhone 6 launches next month. More →

Apple might want to start taking gripes about the iPhone’s battery life seriously

What’s the biggest gripe that people have about the iPhone? Conventional wisdom says that many people are put off by the device’s comparatively small display size, which explains why Apple will likely release two larger new iPhone models this fall. However, a new survey of more than 1,000 smartphone users conducted by uSell.com has found that it’s actually stronger battery life that iPhone users crave more than anything else. More →

Case maker refuses to wait, launches new iPhone 6 page a month early

How insanely hot is the demand for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6? So hot that well-known smartphone accessory maker Spigen is refusing to wait for the new iPhone to be unveiled before designing and selling cases for the next-generation Apple smartphone. The company on Wednesday launched a new page on its website dedicated to Apple’s iPhone 6, which obviously doesn’t even exist yet. Instead of waiting for the phone to be unveiled early next month during a press conference on September 9th, Spigen based its designs off of the various leaks we’ve seen thus far and is now selling cases to fit the forthcoming iPhone — maybe.

Will Apple really get away with charging $800 for a 5.5-inch iPhone 6?

Will Apple really get away with charging $800 for a 5.5-inch iPhone 6?

Mobile handset industry blogger demigod Horace Dediu has just made two fascinating points about the upcoming iPhone 6 phablet, referred to by some as the “iPhone Air.” First, he thinks the 5.5-inch iPhone will cost $800. Second, he does not think this will have any impact on the overall average sales price (ASP) of the iPhone range. More →

Users become enraged as Apple continues to ignore major laptop bug

Imagine spending well over $2,000 for a laptop and then finding that it has a major bug that causes system failures. Then, imagine having to deal with the huge bug for several years while the manufacturer remains silent despite the fact that it clearly knows the bug exists.

That is the exact experience many MacBook Pro owners are enduring right now as Apple continues to publicly ignore a serious issue found to affect multiple MacBook Pro models. More →

According to Manager Online, Takorn Tantasith, Secretary General of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) announced this week that his agency approved Apple’s request to import two new iPhone 6 models for distribution in Thailand.
