Fresh iPad Air 3 leak reveals more details about Apple’s most exciting tablet in years

Apple’s November launch of the iPad Pro didn’t really do much to alleviate slumping iPad sales. In fact, Apple’s most recent earnings report revealed that year over year iPad sales were down 25% while iPad-based revenue was down 21% year over year.

Nonetheless, Apple CEO Tim Cook has publicly stated that he remains confident in the iPad’s long-term success. That being the case, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Apple will reportedly release an iPad Air 3 sometime in early 2016. In turn, the volume of iPad Air 3 rumors sprouting up has started to increase substantially over the past few weeks. More →

iPhone Costs Around the World

iPhone prices from around the world: Cheapest to most expensive

iPhone prices from around the world: Cheapest to most expensive

Whether or not Apple beats the increasingly outlandish earnings estimates in any given quarter, no one is ever all that surprised. The iPhone is one of the best selling electronic devices on the planet, and with a premium price, the phone is enough to keep Apple swimming in profits even when other products fail to meet the same lofty expectations.

But before you complain about the iPhone’s price, remember that other countries have it far worse. More →

iPhone 7 Plus Camera

iPhone 7 Plus camera might be more amazing than you think

iPhone 7 Plus camera might be more amazing than you think

Reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently issued a research note indicating that the iPhone 7 Plus may incorporate a dual camera system with optical image stabilization and zoom functionality, all based on technology Apple acquired via its $20 million acquisition of LinX about one year ago.

A deeper dive into LinX’s camera technology, however, suggests that camera quality on the iPhone may soon take a monumental step forward. LinX may not be a household name, but the company at the time of Apple’s acquisition was doing some groundbreaking research into camera technologies that might eventually find their way into future iPhone models, perhaps sooner rather than later.

6 ways Android outshines my iPhone 6s

6 ways Android outshines my iPhone 6s

By on January 29, 2016 at 10:29 AM.

On Thursday, I published a piece titled 8 reasons I still can’t leave the iPhone and switch to Android, in which I discussed what I believe to be the main benefits Apple’s iPhone and iOS platform have over Android. I’ve been shocked at the feedback I’ve received since then. The Android vs. iOS argument typically draws all sorts of irrational and illogical “fanboys” out of the woodwork, but the overwhelming majority of emails I received after running that article were well composed and astute. I responded to as many as I could and I ended up having a few worthwhile conversations as a result.

Many of the conversations I had focused on the other side of the story, to the point where it seems like an obvious next move is to discuss the other side of the story here. So that’s just what I’ll do now… More →

Tesla Vs Apple

Tesla hires exec who played key role in building chips that power Apple’s iPhones

Tesla hires exec who played key role in building chips that power Apple’s iPhones

And the war wages on. Tesla and Apple have been openly battling for more than a year now. These two companies are not direct competitors — at least, not yet — but the notion that Apple is working its way toward releasing an electric car, or at least toward diving head-first into the automotive industry in some capacity, is the worst kept secret in tech. Even Tesla CEO Elon Musk said so.

As a result, Apple and Tesla have developed something of a rivalry that has manifested itself in the form of trading talent. Or should we say, stealing talent from each other. Both companies have been hiring staff away from each other for quite some time now, and Tesla’s latest score could be one of its most significant victories to date. More →

iPhone 7 Design Concept Videos

These are the hottest iPhone 7 concepts we’ve seen so far

These are the hottest iPhone 7 concepts we’ve seen so far

Apple posted its report detailing its Christmas quarter earlier this week, prompting many to wonder whether or not Apple is doomed… again. Of course, that’s how many people reacted over the years, insisting on the inevitable demise of the iPhone, Apple’s biggest money maker. That has not happened, and it’s very likely it won’t happen soon.

Apple will continue to sell tens of millions of iPhones each quarter for the foreseeable future, even though sales may dip in some quarters. The iPhone 7 is surely going to be a hot product, and should contribute significantly to Apple’s Christmas 2016 quarter.

The iPhone 7 is going to be better than its predecessors, which is something we can say about any new iPhone. But what we’re mostly interested for the time being is Apple’ brand new design. After all, Apple introduces a dramatic design change every two years.

So while we wait for the iPhone 7 announcement – surely a mid-September affair – let’s check out some iPhone 7 concept videos, including some daring designs but also a few believable creations.
