4-inch iPhone 7 Rumors Release Date

There might be a 4-inch iPhone 7 in your future after all

There might be a 4-inch iPhone 7 in your future after all

Apple is reportedly making two or three new iPhones this year, depending on what the latest rumor says. Some sources claim Apple has a new 4-inch iPhone 6c model in the works, in addition to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus for this year. The smaller model rumored to offer Apple’s latest technologies – including Touch ID support, A8 chip or later, NFC and Apple Pay support – to those buyers looking for a smaller iPhone. On the other hand, one analyst who has usually been accurate about Apple’s unannounced products claimed recently that only new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones will be released this year.

So now, of course, it’s time for rumors of a 4-inch iPhone to resurface.

Finally, a sensible explanation of why you can’t buy the Apple Watch this Friday

Apple won’t sell you a smartwatch in stores this weekend, as you hoped it would, and the Apple Watch won’t be available in retail stores for the entire month of May, at least according to a recent internal Apple memo that was leaked to the press. Apple choose to only take online orders for the device, receiving harsh criticism for the “fake” April 24th release date. However, it turns out there may be a more than plausible explanation for Apple’s decision, analyst Carl Howe revealed in an extensive piece on his blog. More →

The custom smartphone keyboard is here to stay… and it’s only getting smarter

The one smartphone feature we take for granted every day, one that has evolved into an app category of its own, is the virtual keyboard. There are various custom keyboard apps listed in app stores waiting to offer smartphone users a better experience than default options. In fact, many of them extend across platforms, bringing the same features to users no matter what devices they own. The better and smaller these gadgets get over time though, the better the virtual keyboards must get as well.

At least, that’s what Fleksy’s Ashley Eleftheriou assured me in a virtual sit down over the weekend about the past and future of the virtual keyboard app. More →
