New iPhone 6 part leak points to big internal overhaul

Last year, BGR exclusively published photos of several internal iPhone 5s components well ahead of the phone’s release, confirming that the device was set to receive a big internal overhaul. Now, a new leak that reveals a key internal iPhone 6 part could suggest once again that Apple’s new smartphone for 2014 is in store for much more than just a facelift. More →

Alpine CarPlay

New system will bring Apple’s CarPlay to any car this fall

New system will bring Apple’s CarPlay to any car this fall

Apple’s CarPlay solution might not look like much on the surface but as we explained shortly after its debut, CarPlay is a pretty huge deal for the auto industry. In a market overrun by terrible infotainment solutions, Apple’s CarPlay allows an iOS device to take over a vehicle’s stereo system and provide drivers with access to Siri, music, calling and plenty more. The bad news, of course, is that you’ll need a car with a compatible infotainment system in order to use CarPlay. As it turns out, however, users will be able to add Apple’s CarPlay product to just about any car beginning this fall. More →

iPhone 6 Photos Leak

Leaked photo might show us exactly how big the iPhone 6 will be

Leaked photo might show us exactly how big the iPhone 6 will be

It looks like Apple suppliers are really gearing up to mass produce the iPhone 6 because Nowhereelse.fr has snagged some leaked pictures showing the aluminum mold that manufacturers are using for building the iPhone 6′s casing. Nowhereelse.fr then went an extra step and superimposed an image of the iPhone 5s into the picture as a point of comparison for the new device. Assuming that the new iPhone’s display will have a 4.7-inch diagonal, then Nowherelse.fr estimates based on the leaked mold that the iPhone 6′s full dimensions will be 66 millimeters wide by 138 millimeters long. For comparison, the iPhone 5s has basic dimensions of 58.6 millimeters wide by 123.8 millimeters long, so it looks like the new device won’t fit as snuggly in your pocket as earlier models. More →

Cheap Apple iWatch Price

New report says iWatch may be significantly cheaper than expected

New report says iWatch may be significantly cheaper than expected

The highly anticipated Apple iWatch will be significantly cheaper than expected, one analyst believes, as health insurers could subsidize the cost of the smartwatch in the future. Cowen & Co. analyst Timothy Arcuri said in a note to investors on Friday that “we continue to believe it is possible the product (iWatch) is backstopped by some sort of insurance subsidization model similar to the carrier subsidization model for the iPhone.” More →

Apple Vs Samsung

2014: The year Samsung copied Apple and Apple copied Samsung

2014: The year Samsung copied Apple and Apple copied Samsung

By on April 11, 2014 at 10:00 AM.

An interesting plot twist is playing out in the smartphone industry this year. In a scramble to identify new catalysts as smartphone sales growth continues to slow, Apple and Samsung will both seemingly make huge strategic shifts that aim to broaden the appeal of their high-end handsets.

Apple, rumor has it, will launch two new smartphones in 2014 that both have larger displays. Numerous reports suggest that the company is planning an iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch screen, as well as an iPhone phablet with an even larger 5.5-inch display.

Samsung, rumor has it, will launch a new premium smartphone that features a high-end metal housing and possibly other premium materials. The device was supposedly pictured for the first time earlier this week, though a shroud blocked its case from view.

In other words, Apple will cave and finally launch a big-screen phone, like Samsung… and Samsung will cave and finally launch a metal phone, like Apple. More →

2014 Apple vs Samsung Lawsuit: Galaxy Tab

Top secret document suggests Samsung knowingly lied about tablet sales

Top secret document suggests Samsung knowingly lied about tablet sales

New evidence from the second Apple vs Samsung U.S. patent lawsuit reveals that Samsung grossly misrepresented its Galaxy Tab sales when it first started selling Galaxy-branded Android tablets, Fortune reports. In early January 2011, a report from Strategy Analytics citing comments made to investors by a Samsung executive said that Samsung had shipped 2 million Galaxy Tabs in under six weeks. The report caused a big debate at the time over whether the number was accurate, and over whether or not those 2 million tablets were actually purchased by consumers. More →

Leaked 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 cases point to big redesign

Are case manufactures already starting to crank out cases for the yet-to-be-released 5.5-inch version of the iPhone? Nowhereelse.fr has spotted a leaked picture posted on MobileFun.co.uk earlier this week that purportedly shows two different cases for Apple’s two upcoming iPhone 6 models — one that would fit a phone with a display measuring 4.7 inches diagonally and another that measures 5.5 inches.
