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 →

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 →

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus China

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

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

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 →

This app fixes one of the the most annoying things about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

This app fixes one of the the most annoying things about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

For the first time ever, Apple has launched larger iPhones than its usual 3.5-inch to 4-inch handsets, and while the company can’t handle iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus demand, some people still complain that the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch devices are too big for one-hand use. Apple has come up with a trick to make it easier for former iPhone owners to adapt to the bigger display — Reachability — in addition to reducing the profile of the handset and choosing rounded edges instead of squared ones. But these software solutions and design choices don’t address one problem with the handset: Typing with one hand. More →

This is what it takes to have your iPhone 6 covered in actual gold

Apple does sell gold versions of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but their cases aren’t covered in real gold. Luckily for those people who want to spend even more money on their iPhone 6 units, there are companies that can apply actual gold paint to the iPhone 6, and CNET has taken a closer look at what that process entails, at least when it comes to Goldgenie’s gold iPhone painting.

Apple’s design guru Jony Ive, who was interviewed recently by Bloomberg Businessweek and Vogue, on Thursday night appeared in a rare on-stage interview at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit in San Francisco, where he talked about design before and after Apple, and Apple products. Ive even showed off a strange looking phone he designed for a contest decades ago, a contest that he eventually won.
