The first new iPhone of 2016 will look exactly like the last new iPhone of 2013

Apple will unveil a new iPhone in a few days, making it the first time in a long tim the company releases a new phone this early in the year. The handset dubbed the iPhone SE will be a 4-inch device intended to satisfy the needs of iPhone buyers who don’t want 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch models, and would rather purchase a smaller handset that has similar features to the iPhone 6s.

A new report from a source who’s been very accurate with previous iPhone leaks indicates that the iPhone SE won’t be a mid-range phone. Instead, the device will be comparable to the iPhone 6s, but it will look almost exactly like the iPhone 5s from 2013. More →

iPhone SE iPhone 6s Camera Specs

The iPhone SE tipped to have the same camera as iPhone 6s

The iPhone SE tipped to have the same camera as iPhone 6s

The iPhone SE looks like a more exciting handset than we’d initially believed. Rather than being a minimal iPhone 5s upgrade, the new 4-inch handset appears to be more similar to the iPhone 6s series when it comes to internal components. Thus, buyers looking for a high-end iPhone experience in a more compact form would not miss out on most of the features available in Apple’s latest iPhones.

A new report indicates that Apple might be shooting iPhone SE commercials in New York City that focus on the camera experience of the 4-inch device. Specifically, the ads will tout the 4K recording features of the smartphone. More →

First supposed video of iPhone SE looks nothing like what we expected

Next week, Apple will tell us all about its latest iPhone, a variation of the iPhone 5s sporting a revamped design and updated internal components. Dubbed iPhone SE according to recent leaks, the 4-inch device is meant to serve iPhone buyers who’re not thrilled about bigger screens or sky-high prices. The handset will replace the aging iPhone 5s in Apple’s lineup, and offer a more compact version of Apple’s iPhone 6s flagships.

A supposed first video showing the iPhone SE has now emerged from China, but the device in it looks nothing like what we expected. More →

The best thing about Apple’s new iPhone SE might not be the phone itself

The best thing about Apple’s new iPhone SE might not be the phone itself

The new 4-inch iPhone Apple is reportedly going to unveil in the coming weeks is expected to be called the iPhone SE. The phone, first known as the iPhone 6c in unofficial reports and then as the iPhone 5SE in subsequent rumors, is supposed to offer customers all of the best feature of the iPhone 6 and 6s series in a more compact package. But as it turns out, the new phone will not be the affordable flagship some people would love to see from Apple.

But even with that having been said, shoppers looking for a brand new iPhone at a rock bottom price might still be in for some good news.

iPhone 5e Specs Release Date

Apple’s new 4-inch might be called iPhone 5e

Apple’s new 4-inch might be called iPhone 5e

More and more reports indicate that Apple will refresh its iPhone line this spring by replacing the 2013 iPhone 5s with a new 4-inch model that will offer the same size to customers looking for compact smartphones while packing newer features. But not all rumors agree on the name Apple will give to this new product. The “iPhone 6c” moniker is the crowds’ favorite so far though “iPhone 7c” also appeared as a potential – probably unlikely – name choice.

However, a new report from China says that Apple will go with the name “iPhone 5e” for the new handset, with “e” standing for “enhanced.” More →

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 →
