Is the iPhone 6 Plus not the smash hit we thought it was?

Is the iPhone 6 Plus not the smash hit we thought it was?

The instant sell-outs and rapidly lengthening delivery estimates of the iPhone 6 Plus have led many observers to believe that the most jumbo version of iPhone is capturing a big chunk of the new iPhone sales in North America. But new statistics from Chitika indicate that people may have been jumping the gun because it’s possible that the low early production volumes of iPhone 6 Plus are the reason for its relative scarcity compared to the smaller iPhone 6.

iPhone 6 Plus Bendgate

Photos of bent iPhones are popping up all over Instagram – here are the best ones

Photos of bent iPhones are popping up all over Instagram – here are the best ones

As if “Bendgate” wasn’t bad enough PR during the rollout of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, or the fact that the iOS 8.0.1 update turned iPhones into bricks, some people thought it would be fun to post pictures of their bent iPhones on Instagram. This seems to be adding to the notion that the new iPhones will bend easily just by putting the phone in your pocket and sitting down too fast, even though Consumer Reports basically debunked that as being “overblown.”

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

By about 6 hours ago.

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 →

Pulitzer Prize winner says iPhone 6 is closer to his professional camera than predecessors

One of the most praised features of Apple’s new iPhone 6 models is their main cameras, with the iPhone 6 Plus in particular gaining praise for its camera performance. Thus, The New York Times decided to give both smartphones to staff photographer Todd Heisler — who also happens to be a 2006 Pulitzer Prize winner for Feature Photography — to test them out in real-life scenarios.

Samsung brutally trolls Apple, predicts the iPhone 7 will be a Galaxy Note 4 clone

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Note 4 TV commercial may be iPhone-free, as the South Korean giant focuses on repeating the word “Note” over and over rather than mocking Apple, but that doesn’t mean Samsung is done taking hits at its biggest rival in the mobile businessPhone Arena recently discovered a Samsung print ad for the Galaxy Note 4 features a blueprint of Samsung’s phablet and a clear message telling Apple that with its future iPhones it should look for inspiration in Samsung’s upcoming phablet.

iPhone 6 Plus Bendgate

This might be the most plausible explanation for why the iPhone 6 Plus is so bendy

This might be the most plausible explanation for why the iPhone 6 Plus is so bendy

Apple’s iPhone 6 #Bendgate controversy is far from over, even though Apple already revealed that very few customers have complained about such issues and Consumer Reports performed some thorough tests that prove the iPhone 6 models don’t bend as easily as expected. One person with some knowledge of the physics behind “Bendgate” seems to have figured out why the iPhone 6 Plus bends when enough force is applied to a certain part of the phone. Apparently, it’s not because the iPhone 6 is made of thin aluminum, but because of a different internal element that isn’t providing enough resistance. More →

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 and 6 Plus Battery Life

This is Apple’s secret trick to increase the iPhone 6’s battery life

This is Apple’s secret trick to increase the iPhone 6’s battery life

Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus come with bigger and thinner batteries compared to anything Apple has made before, but that doesn’t necessarily mean all iPhone 6 buyers will be happy with battery life on their devices. That doesn’t change the fact that Apple is trying to maximize battery life in its 2014 iPhones, which should offer better efficiency than any previous models. When tearing down the new iPhones and closely inspecting their internal components, Chipworks made a surprising discovery that appears to be related to better battery life. More →

iPhone 6 iPhone 6 Plus China Availability

‘It’s just a matter of time’ before iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus are available in China

‘It’s just a matter of time’ before iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus are available in China

One of the biggest surprises during the Apple event earlier this month was the revelation that China would not be on the list of countries to receive the first wave of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus shipments. A week after launch, the new phones still haven’t even been approved for sale in the most populous country on Earth, but Tencent reported on Tuesday that Apple is finally reaching the last stages of review.

iPhone 6: iOS 8 Tracking

Your iPhone 6 can still be tracked despite increased iOS 8 privacy features

Your iPhone 6 can still be tracked despite increased iOS 8 privacy features

User privacy is a product feature Apple has been heavily advertising recently and it’s been making sure customers know their data is safe… but that doesn’t mean advertisers and retailers won’t still be able to track some Apple device users. For example, even if you use an iOS 8 privacy feature called MAC address spoofing that was designed to stop advertisers from tracking you, you still aren’t necessarily safe from marketers’ prying eyes.

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 →
