The iPhone 6 Plus might have a serious software problem you should know about

Even though the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch was a great success for the company, with 2014 iPhones registering record sales according to Apple, several issues have stained Apple’s iPhone 6 launch, including iOS 8 software problems and the #Bendgate mess, to name just a few. More recently, it was discovered that the iPhone 6’s plastic antenna covers also come with one unexpected flaw. Now, AppleInsider points us to a growing thread on Apple’s support forum that details a potential software issue affecting iPhone 6 Plus handsets. More →

iPhone 6 iOS 8.1 Jailbreak Cydia

The crucial iPhone 6 jailbreak app you need has just been updated to work on iOS 8.1

The crucial iPhone 6 jailbreak app you need has just been updated to work on iOS 8.1

Soon after Apple released iOS 8.1, the first major update for iOS 8, the Pangu team of Chinese hackers that created untethered jailbreak tools for previous iOS versions released a jailbreak tool for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 devices, though it lacked Cydia support, which is the main reason users would want to jailbreak their devices in the first place. Luckily, as iDownload Blog reports, Cydia creator Saurik has pushed an update to it to make it compatible with jailbroken iOS 8 devices. More →

iPhone 6 Plus Review

The best and most extensive iPhone 6 Plus camera review you’ll ever see

The best and most extensive iPhone 6 Plus camera review you’ll ever see

By on October 23, 2014 at 10:05 AM.

We have seen a number of photography experts and professional photographers review the camera on Apple’s new iPhone 6 Plus phablet. Apple’s iPhones are widely known for being among the best in the business when it comes to smartphone camera quality, and the optics on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the best Apple has ever used. Since only the 6 Plus includes optical image stabilization (OIS), this is the handset photographers typically focus on when reviewing Apple’s latest handsets.

Reviews up to this point have been great. We have seen a number of respected photography experts review the iPhone 6 Plus camera and sing it praise, and we’ve even seen some photo samples that are so incredible it’s hard to believe they were captured by a smartphone.

But now, we finally have the iPhone 6 Plus camera review we have been waiting for. More →

A new iPhone 6 problem arises: Dye from jeans is ruining the iPhone’s plastic strips

A new iPhone 6 problem arises: Dye from jeans is ruining the iPhone’s plastic strips

By on October 22, 2014 at 12:50 PM.

Apple fans breathed a sigh of relief this past summer when Nikkei, typically a reliable source of accurate early information on unreleased Apple devices, issued a report stating that the white plastic strips we had seen on countless iPhone 6 mockups would not be part of the final design. Those strips, which many people found to be quite an eyesore, reportedly stemmed from a misunderstanding of some iPhone 6 schematics that had previously leaked. Instead, the Nikkei claimed that those areas would actually be covered by glass panels similar to the ones on the back of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s.

Unfortunately for people who think those plastic strips ruin the sleek look of the phone, they were still present when Apple’s next-generation handsets were unveiled last month.

Of course, had Apple found another way to give the antennas inside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus some breathing room that was feasible technically and financially in such a slim phone, the company might have opted to ditch the plastic in favor of glass or another solution. And thanks to a new issue that seems to have arisen in recent weeks, we know of at least a few people who wish Apple had indeed found another solution. More →

iPhone 6 Plus Sold Out

This is one ‘problem’ Apple is happy to have

This is one ‘problem’ Apple is happy to have

Apple on Monday announced record results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus having played a crucial role despite being available in stores for only 10 days during the period. The company sold more than 10 million units during launch weekend, and that doesn’t even include China. The phones were released in the largest market in the world about a month later, where they were met with huge demand, with many buyers purchasing the phablet version, according to unofficial estimates.

Following its previous reports that largely said the same thing, Digitimes is again saying that Apple is going to increase iPhone 6 Plus manufacturing volumes in order to “satisfy strong demand from China.” More →

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Christmas Sales

You might not be able to find an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in stores this Christmas

You might not be able to find an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in stores this Christmas

In case you’re planning to buy an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for yourself or a special someone this Christmas, you should consider placing an order as fast as possible, to actually be able to have it shipped, wrapped, and neatly hidden underneath a Christmas tree. Otherwise, finding an iPhone 6, and especially iPhone 6 Plus, in stores right before Christmas is something less likely to happen, as Apple is selling everything it can manufacture. Tim Cook said during Apple’s Q4 conference call that the company can’t determine yet whether supply will meet demand this quarter. More →

You’re not going to believe this: people are still buying the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Alright, maybe that isn’t much of a shock, but it’s pretty incredible to see that iPhone fans are actually still lining up at the Apple Store in New York City to pick up a new phone. Walter Piecyk, an analyst at BTIG, tweeted pictures on Friday of anxious consumers lined up around the block on Fifth Avenue waiting for their chance to buy an iPhone 6. More →

Apple’s best iPhones yet launched in the world’s largest market

Apple on Friday officially kicked off iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales in China, following a week of preorders. Facing increased scrutiny from local regulators, the new iPhones had to be launched a month after Apple kicked off iPhone 6 sales in the U.S. and other major markets, but Apple will likely report record sales for the Chinese iPhone 6 launch, considering unofficial estimates but also Apple’s enthusiasm surrounding its iPhone 6 launch.

It looks like Apple finally isn’t ‘doomed’ anymore

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are a huge success for Apple, with unofficial estimates claiming the company sold over 21 million units in the first two weeks of sales (not including China) and over 20 millions units in China alone during the first three days of preorder availability. The phone is still hard to find in many markets in retail stores, with online stores showing a wait time from a few days to a few weeks depending on the model. Apparently, the iPhone 6 is finally the product some people have been clamoring for years that Apple needed to save itself from “impending doom.” More →

The Galaxy Note 4 smokes the iPhone 6 in a blind camera comparison

Apple’s reign as the maker of the world’s best smartphone camera may be short lived. Although the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus have both earned wide acclaim for their high-quality cameras, it looks like Samsung has similarly hit one out of the park with the camera for its Galaxy Note 4 phablet. PhoneArena snapped several pictures with several flagship smartphones and asked its readers to vote on which pictures looked the best without telling them which device took which picture. The results were a clear win for the Galaxy Note 4, although the iPhone 6 still finished better than the other flagship phones used in the survey. More →
