2016 iPhone 5s Rumors Specs

New report may detail specs for one of next year’s brand new iPhones

New report may detail specs for one of next year’s brand new iPhones

Apple will reportedly release three new iPhones this year, including a brand new 4-inch model that will supposedly be released next summer rather than in September – at least according to the most recent reports on the matter. Previously known as the iPhone 6c, the smaller iPhone should better cater to the needs of smartphone buyers who aren’t interested in bigger displays.

Various reports have said that the new 4-inch iPhone will essentially offer the same features available on the company’s high-end handsets, but a new report seems to paint a completely different picture. More →

Smartphones from 2013 that are still awesome two years later

It’s one thing to recommend a new phone to someone — but what do you say to someone who doesn’t want to pay top dollar and is willing to buy an older phone? Looking back on it, 2013 was an unusually good year for smartphones that have held up over time, which is why we’ve decided to make a list of three phones that came out two years ago but are still great to use two years later.

Key iPhone tech gets Apple into deep legal troubles: Company risks up to $862.4M in damages

Key iPhone tech gets Apple into deep legal troubles: Company risks up to $862.4M in damages

Apple’s iPhones have consistently been able to outperform rivals from the competition without necessarily matching their hardware. The primary “culprit” is Apple’s custom AX chip design that’s miles ahead of the competition. However, the same chips got Apple in legal troubles, as the company has apparently been using energy-efficiency technology in A7 and A8 processor that was patented way back in 1998 by the University of Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.

WARF sued Apple in early 2014, with a jury finding that Apple has infringed the technology described in the patent. The iPhone maker now faces damages of up to $862.4 millions, though they’re yet to be determined. More →

Tangerine iPhone 5s Movie

We may soon see the first Oscar-worthy movie shot on an iPhone

We may soon see the first Oscar-worthy movie shot on an iPhone

Whether it’s done for publicity to raise awareness or to save money during production, the iPhone can be used to replace professional cameras and even to shoot entire movies. That’s a point Apple made a while ago by using iOS devices to record entire commercials. Filmmakers listened, and earlier this year news broke that Sundance hit Tangerine was filmed using only iPhones and some key camera accessories.

The best part about it is that the film was recorded using the iPhone 5s, Apple’s 2013 flagship handset whose camera performance was the best Apple could offer two years ago. However, since then Apple has further improved its camera tech, so I can’t wait to see an Oscar-worthy movie shot entirely on the newer iPhones. (Yes, a movie partially shot on iPhone did win an Oscar in 2013 — the Searching for Sugar Man documentary — but only because the director ran out of money while shooting it.) More →

Video: iOS 9 might slow down iPhone 4s, 5 and even iPhone 5s

More and more people upgrade to Apple’s latest iOS release, with Apple claiming iOS 9 is adopted at a faster rate than iOS 8. But that doesn’t mean iOS 9 is a flawless update, as the iPhone maker has already released a first iOS 9.0.1 patch to fix some issues.

On top of that, even iOS 9’s primary focus is improving performance, it appears the new software isn’t necessarily going to make your old iOS device feel any faster than iOS 8. More →

iPhone 6s 5s 4s 3Gs Comparison

In pictures: iPhone 6s is the biggest ‘S’ upgrade yet

In pictures: iPhone 6s is the biggest ‘S’ upgrade yet

The first iPhone 6s reviews agree that this year’s iPhone is much better than last year’s model, even if it’s just an “S” generation. Though it kept the same design for one more year, Apple made several improvements under the hood – it actually also changed the hood, making both the metal shell and front glass panel more resistant to breaks. In fact, when looking at the differences between the various iPhone models and their corresponding S variations, we concluded that the iPhone 6s is the biggest “S” upgrade in Apple’s history.

The following images will succinctly illustrate that this is indeed the case. More →

Many people will surely label the iPhone 6s as a minor update over last year’s phone, quickly dismissing it just because it’s an “S” update. In some ways, the new Apple phone is similar to last year’s version. But once you start digging under the hood, you’ll quickly realize that the iPhone 6s series brings a slew of improvements over last year’s model that likely make it the best “S” upgrade in Apple’s history – just look at the comparisons below.
