iPhone 6 heist: Steal the money, ignore the hardware

Apple is making a boatload of cash on record iPhone 6 launch sales, and criminals are already trying to take advantage of this particular cash cow. While smugglers are selling iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units for as much as $4,000 a pop in China after purchasing as many units as possible from the early launch markets, three men in Germany decided to hit an Apple retail store on Saturday, a day after the iPhone 6 was launched.

Here’s yet another freaky ‘accident’ your iPhone 6 Plus won’t survive

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are both well-built devices, but they’re not indestructible. Their displays aren’t made of sapphire glass, and they may shatter when dropped from certain heights and on certain angles. Even more annoyingly, the metal body may bend if held into a pocket for too long, as some customers have found out. Obviously, if such regular accidents can affect the health of Apple’s new iPhones, then you shouldn’t expect it to survive stranger ones. More →

This might just be the most annoying new feature in iOS 8

Afraid of Apple’s iPhone 6, Samsung pushes up Galaxy Note 4 launch

Samsung failed to properly react to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch – the company inexplicably delayed announcing launch details for the Galaxy Note 4 model even though it announced the device almost a week before Apple unveiled its biggest iPhones ever – and a new report from South Korea reveals that Apple’s record iPhone sales have really scared the giant. As a result, Samsung will push up the launch date of the fourth-generation phablet, at least in South Korea, The Korea Times reports. More →
