So now that you bought an iPhone 6 Plus, is it way too big for you?

Everyone knows my thoughts on the supersized smartphone category, and so far my view hasn’t changed even after using the iPhone 6 Plus for half a day. But that doesn’t really matter, what matters is what you think. Who has picked up Apple’s new iPhone 6 Plus and absolutely loves it? Is it bigger than you thought? Is it exactly what you expected and needed?

Let us know if you’re coming from another large device like a Galaxy Note or something smaller and what your initial thoughts are! More →

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: Here is our first look!

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: Here is our first look!

Here we go… as is tradition, we always manage to get our hands on Apple’s new iPhones a wee bit early. This year brings two different models, and judging by what has been reported and written, the iPhone 6 is the evolution of the iPhone line, while the iPhone 6 Plus can almost be considering a new type of product for Apple — one that might even be able to replace the iPad mini.

Here are my initial observations, followed by a boatload of photos. More →

iPhone 6 Release Date

‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

We just spoke with multiple sources at carrier stores and authorized Apple retailer partner locations, and the straight up fact is it’s going to harder to find an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow than a Turbo Man. We are told that stores have been receiving shipments all throughout the day, and out of all the new iPhone 6 models received, typically only about 2-3% are iPhone 6 Plus units, and in only one color.

There is “no chance” of finding an iPhone 6 Plus unit to purchase tomorrow, we were told. Sources also said there are no 16GB iPhone 6 Plus devices to be found. More →

Apple Watch Price

No one understands the Apple Watch strategy, and it’s totally a winner

No one understands the Apple Watch strategy, and it’s totally a winner

Not much is known about Apple’s upcoming Apple Watch pricing besides the fact that, what assume is the Sport edition, will start at $349. Whether this even includes bands, we do not know. It is likely there are going to be different storage capacities for the less expensive models, so it’s not inconceivable to think that $349 is going to get you the Sport Watch with something like 16GB of storage, and then another $100 for 32GB and another $100 for 64GB.

iOS 8 Features

These are the most amazing reactions to iOS 8

These are the most amazing reactions to iOS 8

Some of the reactions to Apple’s iOS 7 were pretty amazing when it was first release last year. It was a brand new operating system with a brand new look and people either loved it or hated it.

Another year and another update are now upon us, and here are some of the most amazing reactions we have come across. They range from rage to excitement, to joy, to heartbreak. One of the popular themes seems to be the 5GB of free space required to install iOS 8 over the air, which could be pretty tight on a 16GB iPhone. One trick if you haven’t updated yet is to use iTunes, which requires much less free space. More →

iPhone 6 Plus Vs iPhone 6

You just made a very huge mistake by ordering the iPhone 6 Plus

You just made a very huge mistake by ordering the iPhone 6 Plus

Look, the iPhone 6 Plus has a lot going for it. Its battery is like, so much better than the iPhone 5s. The camera is even better than the iPhone 6! And the screen! Holy screen! But there is one big problem here… most of you just picked it because it was the “better” and more expensive option. You’re all probably like, “Yeah this is great, larger phone, I can do more. Bigger is better. AMERICA! Cheese fries with extra grease!” More →

iPhone 6 review pictures and video from Apple's event

APPLE’S ANNOUNCEMENT RUINED: Is this the first video of a real iPhone 6?

APPLE’S ANNOUNCEMENT RUINED: Is this the first video of a real iPhone 6?

Apple’s event this coming Tuesday hasn’t been much of a surprise for industry-watchers. However, it appears that a working iPhone 6 has made its way into the hands of an Apple fan who has started posting pictures and videos of the device on a Chinese site. The phone and software don’t seem to be edited in any way and this very much is the real deal.

We can see a new Passbook icon which features a magnetic credit card at the top, assumingly for the fact you are now going to be able to pay using your iOS devices everywhere you go. Let’s hope there is still a surprise come Tuesday, though I personally think this is going to be the biggest and most important Apple event in a long time. You can view the video here. More →

DASH Radio aims to reinvent radio for the digital world

It’s an interesting time for radio in the digital world. On one hand, you have traditional terrestrial radio stations still fighting to stay relevant in the days of Spotify and Pandora by simply simulcasting their existing radio feed in something like iHeartRadio, and you have Sirius XM which is limited to just the United States and has high monthly fees. A new company and service called DASH Radio is aiming to reinvent how we know and listen to the radio, and from what I can see, it’s doing all the right things as it launches both the app and service today.

Amazon Fire Phone Review

All the disgusting and terrible phones I’d rather use than Amazon’s Fire phone

All the disgusting and terrible phones I’d rather use than Amazon’s Fire phone

I honestly feel like I’m in a scene from Billy Madison.

Amazon has finally released a smartphone, and since Amazon PR won’t talk to us ever since I leaked the Amazon Kindle 2 like six years ago, I had to go buy one today in order to play with it. The radio silence also might have something to do with all of our incredible reporting detailing every single angle and feature of the phone prior to release, but… anyway.

Amazon has spent so much money on the Fire phone, it’s incredibly incredible how downright horrible it is. The project was almost forced to release years ago, and I just can’t comprehend what device we would be talking about if that had actually happened. More →

iOS 8 Beta 5

iOS 8 beta 5 to be released August 4th, beta 6 on August 15th

iOS 8 beta 5 to be released August 4th, beta 6 on August 15th

According to our sources, Apple is nearing the end of the beta testing cycle for iOS 8. We are told that the company plans to seed iOS 8 beta 5 to developers on August 4th, and a final version of the OS, iOS 8 beta 6 on August 15th. After that we most likely are going to have a lull of several weeks until Apple is ready to release the iOS 8 GM (this is the final version, barring any unforeseen emergency fixes / problems). The latest version of Apple’s upcoming mobile software, iOS 8 beta 4, is the most stable and smooth out of all the releases so far, and it also incorporates new design and user interface tweaks, bug fixes and feature enhancements.
