iPhone 6 Shuts Down

China is investigating an iPhone problem just days after indirectly threatening Apple

China is investigating an iPhone problem just days after indirectly threatening Apple

It might be all just a coincidence, but a Chinese consumer protection group started investigating Apple’s iPhone just days after a state-run newspaper said that China would respond in a “tit-for-tat” manner to any of Trump’s actions that could affect trade between the two countries. Apple’s iPhone was even specifically mentioned as a potential collateral victim. On the other hand, if there are iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s users who are experiencing a strange issue, it should certainly be addressed. More →

Gold Black iPhone Mod

Someone built a black and gold iPhone 6 and it’s everything you dreamed it would be

Someone built a black and gold iPhone 6 and it’s everything you dreamed it would be

July 21st at 2:34 PM

Love it or hate it, no one can argue that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are unattractive phones. Apple has always had an incredible collective sense of style and design, and that extended to the iPhone right out of the gate in 2007. Perhaps that’s why so many of Apple’s rivals have copied the company’s designs so shameless time and time again. As great as Apple’s designs are though, there are always people who wish something was a little different — no antenna lines, or a flat back instead of a camera bump.

One wish in particular has made the rounds quite frequently over the past two years: people want a gold iPhone with a black face. The bad news is that there’s no sign Apple has plans to offer this sought-after color combo anytime soon. And the worse news for people who want a black and gold iPhone is that it looks even better than you thought it would. More →

Galaxy S7 vs. iPhone 6 Plus camera showdown: Apple blog insists iPhone is the winner

Galaxy S7 vs. iPhone 6 Plus camera showdown: Apple blog insists iPhone is the winner

March 9th at 9:37 AM

Apple has dominated the smartphone market for years in a number of key areas. In some of the most important aspects of the user experience, however, Samsung has pulled ahead. For example, Apple’s Retina display, which first appeared on the iPhone 4, dramatically raised the bar in the smartphone industry. Since 2010 however, the Samsung’s Super AMOLED screens have far surpassed Apple’s LCD displays.

Another space where most experts agree Samsung has passed Apple is in the all-too-important area of camera quality. The Galaxy Note 5 had what was arguably the best smartphone camera of all time when it debuted last year, and most reviewers seem to believe that the camera on the new Galaxy S7 is even better. Well, almost all reviewers… More →

Video shows how to upgrade a 16GB iPhone 6 to 128GB for just $60

Last November, we learned that it costs just $90 to replace the 16GB flash memory on an iPhone with a 128GB module instead of the $200 extra that Apple would charge to buy a 128GB iPhone. To do that, you’d have to go to China and find iPhone experts that have the skill set to pull off this move, but make sure you leave your warranty at the door.

It turns out that the price has significantly dropped since then, and the 30-minute upgrade now costs $60. Furthermore, a video shows you how it’s made. More →

OnePlus iPhone 6s Case

Hardcore Android fans’ favorite phone maker now sells iPhone 6s cases

Hardcore Android fans’ favorite phone maker now sells iPhone 6s cases

Hardcore Android fans are more than familiar with OnePlus, the Chinese startup that created three interesting Android devices so far, including two high-end devices priced well below what you’d usually expect for flagship handsets – the 2014 OnePlus One and the 2015 OnePlus 2. The company even has a daring, yet somewhat controversial, a motto that’s supposed to explain its smartphone mentality: #NeverSettle. Though, truth be told, OnePlus did settle quite a few times when it comes to the choices it made for its smartphones.

With all that in mind, we couldn’t be more surprised to see OnePlus create accessories for… wait for it… the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

New app brings one of the iPhone 6s’ best new features to older iPhones

New iPhones are a double-edged sword. On one hand, they bring exciting new features and big performance improvements to Apple fans. In fact, this year’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are the most powerful smartphones the world has ever seen. On the flip side though, not everyone wants to spend money on a new smartphone each year, so they’re forced to do without all of the nifty new features Apple adds exclusively to new models.

As it turns out, that’s not always true, because a new app has managed to bring one of the iPhone 6s’ best new features to older iPhones including the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s. More →

16GB iPhone storage issues? For $90, some Chinese repair stores can upgrade memory to 128GB

It’s abundantly clear why Apple still makes 16GB iPhones: For the money. At the same time, not all iPhone buyers are willing to pay extra cash for the 64GB or 128GB models, so they end up buying a cheaper 16GB model. There are ways to fix memory needs, including updating to the latest available iOS 9 version, keeping unessential data off the phone, and buying third-party storage solutions that connect wirelessly to the device.

However, some intrepid iPhone repair shops in China have found a way to replace the storage on iPhone and iPad, something that hasn’t been done before. More →
