Chinese workers make $17 a day building the iPhone 6, but it’ll cost them $4,000 to buy one

There’s no doubt about it, the iPhone 6 launch is the biggest handset launch of the year. Apple had sold well over 4 million iPhone 6 units during preorder availability, but that didn’t stop thousands of buyers from lining up in front of Apple retail stores in the various markets, days ahead of the actual launch. But as many reports have shown, not all of them are doing it to buy an actual iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for themselves. More →

iPhone 6 still susceptible to law enforcement spying, despite beefed up privacy and security features

Apple may be focusing on ensuring customers that their personal data stored on iOS and OS X devices is safer and more private than ever, but that doesn’t mean law enforcement and spy agencies won’t be able to access iOS 8 devices anymore. Wired points us to a new blog post published by security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski, who says that regardless of the steps Apple has taken to further protect personal data and regardless of whether the company is willing to help such agencies, they’ll still be able to force their way into an iPhone 6 or any iOS device running Apple’s latest operating system.

Tim Cook knows he’s got a hit on his hands with the iPhone 6 and he’s taken some time out of his day to meet and greet iPhone fans who are waiting in line at the Apple retail outlet in Palo Alto, California. IDG News reporter Martyn Williams brings us word that Cook has been walking up and down the line at the Palo Alto store on Friday to meet customers and thank them for coming out.

iPhone 6: This might be Apple’s smartest marketing trick for selling even more units

Apple will sell an impressive number of handsets during its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch weekend, including the already announced 4 million-plus preorders placed in just one day, but the company may have a secret marketing trick up its sleeve compared to rivals that should help it sell even more iPhone 6 models in following months.

iPhone 6 Launch Day Samsung

What it’s like to be a Samsung exec on iPhone 6 launch day

What it’s like to be a Samsung exec on iPhone 6 launch day

Legendary fake metal band Spinal Tap once said that their song “Christmas With the Devil” was about trying to see Christmas from Satan’s point of view simply because the holiday season must be a rather depressing time for the poor guy. You might think the same would be true for Samsung executives on iPhone 6 launch day, but you’d be wrong — and no, Apple fans, it has nothing to do with whether Samsung is the personification of evil and darkness.

‘Mother of all upgrades:’ From iPhone 3G (iOS 4) to iPhone 6 (iOS 8)

Tim Cook was apparently not kidding when he told The Wall Street Journal that the iPhone 6 models will trigger the “mother of all upgrades,” as one MacRumors forum poster just revealed. Forum member Kalsta upgraded from the iPhone 3G all the way up to iPhone 6, in what can only be described as a massive upgrade for an iPhone owner using ancient software and hardware, at least by today’s smartphone standards.

Why you might have to pay more on AT&T when you upgrade to the iPhone 6

You might end up paying more in monthly fees when you upgrade to the iPhone 6 on AT&T, but don’t worry — it’s actually nothing nefarious. Cult of Mac reports that some customers who are signing two-year contracts to upgrade to the iPhone 6 on AT&T are getting notices telling them that their monthly smartphone access charges are being raised from between $15 and $25 all the way up to $40. However, contrary to Cult of Mac’s implications, there’s really nothing AT&T is doing wrong here. More →

How to safely transfer all your data from your old iPhone to iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus

But you also want to make sure that all your data from your previous iPhone model is properly moved to your brand new toy. For many longtime iPhone users, this procedure is a piece of cake and they’re already prepared, but many others might not be aware of what they’re supposed to do next. More →
