The best new feature on the iPhone 6s may have just been confirmed in iOS 9 code

In less than two weeks, Apple will hold its annual new iPhone launch event, with the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus being the obvious stars of the show. The keynote is also supposed to bring several other announcements covering various other new Apple products. Many reports have so far suggested different specs and features that will supposedly be included in the new iPhones, and leaked images and videos have also shown purported iPhone 6s components.

Like each iPhone generation to date, the new iPhone will have one defining new feature, and it may have just been confirmed in existing iOS 9 code. More →

New free iPhone app will change the way you use email – watch the video if you don’t believe us

If I had a dollar for every time a company emailed me with news of a “revolutionary” app or product that will “change the way” people do whatever it is this particular thing addresses, I would be retired on a beach somewhere right now. But alas, I’m sitting in my office with an inbox full of annoying PR pitches instead. Every once in a while, however, something crosses my desk that actually does deliver on the lofty claims posed by the public relations firm that emails me, and such is the case with a new free iPhone app that was just released on Thursday.

Does iOS have a bloatware problem?

Does iOS have a bloatware problem?

By on August 27, 2015 at 10:06 AM.

When it comes to tech coverage, Forbes is generally a pretty mixed bag. The site publishes content from a huge number of contributors, some of whom know their stuff, and some of whom are great for some comic relief and little else.

On Wednesday morning, I read a post on Forbes that fell into the former category. It was a nice quick post about Android bloatware, and it explained why future Android devices may have less of it. The post was well written, made a few good points, and offered a good quote from a VP of engineering at Google for support.

Then, Forbes’ social media editor completely ruined the post for me with a single tweet. More →

10 killer jailbreak tweaks that add features regular iPhone users wish they had

Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are going to add some fantastic new features to the company’s smartphone lineup, but there are some great features iPhones will never have out of the box. It’s not because Apple wants people to miss out on these experiences, per se, but rather that Apple focuses on features that will appeal to the broadest range of users.

Of course, that’s why we have the jailbreak community. More →

iPhone 6s launch venue unofficially confirmed for what might be the biggest iPhone event yet

Earlier this week, a report said that Apple has already reserved a massive auditorium for its upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus launch, the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium that can house significantly more guests than Apple’s usual keynote locations. A new report seems to confirm that Apple has indeed booked the place for a week in September, adding credence to a report from a trusted source who said a few weeks ago the iPhone fall event is scheduled for September 9th this year.

iPhone 6s looks set to win over even more Android converts

Apple isn’t going to overtake Android in terms of market share anytime soon, but the company’s upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will apparently continue to hurt Google where it hurts most. A recent study from Phoenix and SessionM’s mXP platform reveals that as many as 12% of Android users are interested in the upcoming iPhone models and are considering a switch instead of sticking with or upgrading to a new Android device.

Hugely popular iPhone 6 and 6 Plus clear cases on sale for just $7.45 on Amazon

There’s only one way you can truly protect your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus without compromising its style: a clear case. The problem with clear cases, of course, is that you’re taking a sleek aluminum and glass phone and covering it with cheap plastic that completely changes the feel. These are the choices we all have to make though, and if you’re going to bite the bullet and buy a clear case, you had better make sure it’s a good one. More →

A guide to recovering deleted files from iCloud

Losing data in the cloud is a tragically hopeless feeling.

Although Apple’s iCloud service is incredibly convenient for accessing files between different devices without having to manually move them around, we’ve all heard the horror stories of files being inexplicably lost or accidentally deleted. Thankfully, Apple knows that we all make mistakes, so there’s a way to get the data back. More →

iPhone 6s vs. iPhone 6: Metal housings compared in new leaked photo

Design-wise, the iPhone 6s is supposed to be a minor update to last year’s iPhone 6 model, in line with Apple’s way of doing things when it comes to iPhone launch cycles. At least that’s what the many purported iPhone 6s component leaks have claimed so far. One more unofficial image originating from China shows the metal cases of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus next to their iPhone 6 equivalents, suggesting that earlier reports have indeed been on point.
