You might get an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus this Christmas after all

During its latest earnings call, Apple revealed that it’s selling every iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus it can make, suggesting that some buyers might not be able to get their desired iPhone 6 model in time for the holidays, as the company wasn’t sure when it’ll be able to catch up with demand. Since launching the new iPhones, Apple’s estimated shipping times for orders placed on its online store reached seven to ten business days for the iPhone 6 and up to four weeks for the iPhone 6 Plus, no matter what capacity versions, colors, or carrier options, without seeing any improvement.

Foxconn is urgently building a new $2.6B display factory just for Apple

Apple is willing to do anything necessary to make sure it has a steady flow of components from suppliers when it comes to its best-selling products, and a new report from Bloomberg seems to confirm just that. The report reveals that Apple has apparently made an urgent request to Foxconn, the largest device manufacturer in the world and one of the main iPhone and iPad makers, for preferential treatment. And it looks like Foxconn will satisfy Apple’s request, even if that means making a $2.6 billion investment in the process. More →

iPhone 6 Sapphire Display Cover

Here’s why your iPhone 6 doesn’t have an unbreakable sapphire display

Here’s why your iPhone 6 doesn’t have an unbreakable sapphire display

Apple had long been rumored to add an ultra-strong sapphire glass display to this year’s iPhone 6 models, made in partnership with GT Advanced Technologies, but as soon as the iPhone maker launched this year’s iOS handsets it became clear that sapphire covers were not used on either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Since then, GTAT filed for bankruptcy, blaming Apple’s draconian supply contract for its doom, and The Wall Street Journal has learned more inside information about why the iPhone 6 doesn’t have a sapphire screen.

128GB iPhone 6 Plus Crash Memory Benchmark

New tests suggest Apple skimped on a key iPhone 6 component and it’s causing problems

New tests suggest Apple skimped on a key iPhone 6 component and it’s causing problems

Certain iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners, as well as some iPad users, have complained about random crashes and reboots on smartphones that have 64GB or 128GB of storage and hold large libraries of apps. Various reports trying to explain the problem have identified the type of NAND memory chosen for these iPhone 6 models as the main culprit, with some suggesting that Apple is already considering moving from triple cell (TLC) NAND memory to multi-level cell (MLC) storage in future iPhone 6 versions.

Apple has not confirmed those reports, and has not explained why 64GB iPhone 6 and 128GB iPhone 6 Plus devices seem to crash in certain circumstances. But a new report from Korean publication KBench shows benchmark tests for both TLC and MLC NAND memory modules used in 64GB iPhone 6 units, and they reveal that the latter offers a better performance than the former.

iPhone 6 gets slaughtered by a 16-month-old Nokia phone in new camera showdown

By on November 13, 2014 at 11:05 AM.

There is absolutely no question that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus share one of the most impressive cameras that has ever been built into a smartphone. There is also no question that the quality of photos captured by the iPhone 6′s camera is regularly overstated by people who don’t bother to support their claims with actual tests. Thankfully, some people have taken the time to really put the new iPhone’s camera through the paces, and while it is indeed quite impressive, it’s definitely not the best mobile camera on the market.

In fact, the iPhone 6′s camera was positively slaughtered in a recent showdown with Nokia’s Lumia 1020, a smartphone that was released well over a year ago. More →

Apple’s new iPhones may not be stealing as many Android users as we expected

The conventional wisdom after the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was that Apple would steal back some market share from Android as Android users who love owning big phones would flock to the new devices. However, Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) has shared some new research with us that suggests that the bigger new iPhones aren’t picking off quite as many Android users as we thought they would.

At long last, someone has released a real ‘iPad killer’… and it’s Apple

The single biggest mistake you can make when ordering an iPhone 6

If you’re ordering an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus online for the coming holiday season, you really shouldn’t order it through your wireless carrier, especially if that carrier is T-Mobile. Business Insider’s Steve Kovach learned this lesson the hard way when he ordered an iPhone 6 Plus through the “Un-carrier” and got a notice over the weekend informing him that the device might not ship until December 28th, or around two months after he placed his order.
