Motorola boss says people will stop buying devices like the iPhone 6 soon

When you look at the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales figures, it’s hard to believe that the high-end smartphone business is drying up, but that’s exactly what Motorola President Rick Osterloh argued in an interview with Re/code earlier this month.

“The days of the $600-$700 smartphone are numbered,” Osterloh told Re/code. “People are realizing they don’t need to pay that much money.” More →

Great news: You won’t have to worry about the iPhone 6 bending like the 6 Plus

When reports of the iPhone 6 Plus warping under pressure began to spread earlier this week, many users became concerned about the durability of their brand new devices. Once Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy released a video of himself bending the iPhone 6 Plus with his bare hands, #BendGate (or as we prefer to called it, “Bent-gazi”) started trending all over social media.

Pick up Samsung’s Gear S smartwatch at every major U.S. carrier this fall

Despite the seemingly endless string of releases over the past year, Samsung hasn’t had a great deal of success in the wearable industry. There’s no question that each subsequent release has improved upon its predecessor, but from the original Galaxy Gear to the Android Wear-powered Gear Live, the company hasn’t made enough significant progress to cement its place in a growing market.

iOS 8.0.1 Update Song

The funniest (or saddest) thing you’ll see today: The iOS 8.0.1 update song

The funniest (or saddest) thing you’ll see today: The iOS 8.0.1 update song

For the last month, Apple has been on top of the world. The Cupertino-based company recently sold 10 million smartphones in a single weekend, unveiled a new product that has the potential to dominate the wearable market, and already has fans excited about an October event that hasn’t even been announced. But the reason that Apple is dominating the headlines this afternoon isn’t because of its success; instead Apple is trending online because of a ridiculously botched update to iOS 8. More →

An in-depth examination of the bending iPhone 6 Plus

The biggest controversy surrounding the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus isn’t their size, their software or their displays — it’s their unfortunate tendency to bend under pressure. The Internet went into an uproar this week when early adopters began complaining that their phones had begun to warp after sitting in their pockets over the weekend. Everything came to a head when a “bend test” video showed the iPhone 6 Plus being bent by hand. More →

You won’t be buying an Apple CarPlay vehicle this year after all

It seems that amid all the excitement surrounding the iPhone 6 launch, Apple has quietly delayed one of its most intriguing new proposals. 9to5Mac noticed on Tuesday that Apple had updated its CarPlay landing page to note that the CBS News application will be compatible with the software, but the company also removed any mention of the year 2014 from the lineup of vehicle manufacturers that have partnered with Apple.

Apple iPhone 6 Waterproof

The iPhone 6 isn’t waterproof, but it might survive a quick dip

The iPhone 6 isn’t waterproof, but it might survive a quick dip

Apple might have the competition beat when it comes to sales figures, but there’s plenty that the iPhone 6 can’t do. One of the most requested features from most smartphone buyers is water- and dust-resistance. We want our electronics to be able to survive in less than ideal settings, and while both Sony and Samsung have both championed the versatility of the Xperia Z3 and the Galaxy S5, respectively, Apple’s hardware is still more vulnerable to the elements.

A detailed look at how one of iOS 8’s best new features works

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 sells out in South Korea before it even launches

As expected, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have dominated the news cycle ever since Apple took the stage in Cupertino earlier this month. Records were broken and lines were formed, but on the other side of the world, another huge smartphone launch was taking shape. South Korean newspaper Metro reports that Samsung has had to cut off preorders for the Galaxy Note 4 after overwhelming demand depleted the supply of the phablet at every major carrier in the country.
