Video: How to fix a bent iPhone 6 Plus (seriously, DO NOT try this at home)

When Apple first unveiled the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this month, people knew right away that they were two of the most beautiful smartphones the world had ever seen. At the same time, however, there were a few curious design decisions that raised some eyebrows. One in particular is the protruding camera lens on both phones, which one critic even referred to as “appalling.”

YouTube users PeripateticPandas took the opportunity to release a funny (and frightening) video that shows us one way to fix the iPhone 6’s protruding camera, and now the team is back with a unique solution for “Bendgate.” More →

iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 5s: The definitive camera showdown

Apple’s industry-leading iPhones are known for several things. Stunning designs and simple but powerful software are both somewhere near the top of the list, but the iPhone line also just so happens to represent some of the most widely used cameras on the planet. While other smartphone makers have long since passed Apple’s iPhones when it comes to megapixel counts, the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus still arguably represent the most impressive smartphone cameras in the world.

But are the cameras in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus really that much better than the one in Apple’s previous-generation iPhone 5s? More →

Apple Tax Scandal

Apple responds to allegations that it owes billions in unpaid taxes

Apple responds to allegations that it owes billions in unpaid taxes

Yin and Yang are in full force at Apple right now, where its most massively successful product launch ever has been counterbalanced by an onslaught of scandals and bad news. First, there was iPhone 6 Plus “Bendgate.” Then, Apple bricked about 40,000 new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets with a buggy iOS 8.0.1 update. Earlier this week, a few big security flaws were found in iOS 8.0.2, and now Apple is in hot water over what the European Commission (EC) claims amounts to about $8 billion in unpaid taxes.

Now, Apple has responded publicly for the first time to the EC’s allegations. More →

You can finally use Jawbone’s awesome UP app without an UP band

Jawbone might have started as a Bluetooth headset company, but it’s now also the maker of the best fitness tracker in the world. We gave the UP24 that honor for a number of reasons, and the band’s fantastic accompanying software sits somewhere near the top. Not everyone wants to wear a fitness tracker though, and now you don’t have to: Jawbone has released a new version of its great app that makes use of iOS 8’s new Healthkit features and doesn’t require any separate hardware.

This is the most secure way to keep your private data safe on Android

This is the most secure way to keep your private data safe on Android

When it comes to mobile security, you can never be too safe. As the recent leak of hundreds of nude photos of female celebrities has reminded us, hackers are always working on new and unexpected ways to steal our private data, and a simple PIN on a smartphone just isn’t enough to ensure that our private files are kept secure. There are several options when it comes to mobile device security, and their effectiveness ranges pretty dramatically. For Android users, however, there is one app in particular that likely keeps files safer than anything we’ve seen before. More →

iOS 8 iPhone 4S

Watch this video before you update your iPhone 4S to iOS 8

Watch this video before you update your iPhone 4S to iOS 8

If you’re still using an iPhone 4S, odds are fairly good that you’ve learned to hold off on installing major software updates on your iPhone. While new versions of iOS bring great and exciting new features, they also can bring slowed performance or even bogging to older Apple devices. Early reports suggested that this was indeed the case for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 when Apple’s iOS 8 update was released earlier this month, and we even shared a way to roll back to iOS 7.1 for users who couldn’t deal with the performance issues.

Now that two updates have been released for iOS 8, however, it may finally be safe to update those older devices. More →

iPhone 6 Release Date

The next big step for Apple’s iPhone 6

The next big step for Apple’s iPhone 6

Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus debut was the biggest launch in the history of smartphones. Through the new handsets’ opening weekend alone, Apple sold more than 10 million combined iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units, topping the 9 million iPhone 5s and 5c handsets the company sold during their debut weekend in 2013. It may seem as though Apple’s iPhone launch weekend didn’t see much growth this year, but that’s actually not the case at all — as we’ve noted before, the fact that the iPhone 6 didn’t launch in China changes things dramatically.

iPhone 6 Price

This is how much you’ll pay to charge the iPhone 6 for a year

This is how much you’ll pay to charge the iPhone 6 for a year

“The iPhone 6 Plus may bend in your pocket,” Opower’s Barry Fischer wrote in a blog post on Thursday, “but it won’t bend your energy bill higher.” We’ll forgive him for that one-liner, though, because it was written alongside a very interesting post that shares the results of Opower’s study examining how much it costs to charge the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus regularly for a year. Neither phone has class-leading battery life, and all that charging must add up, right?

Don’t worry, it’s actually much cheaper than you might think. More →
