iPhone 7 2016 Sales

Is Apple shooting itself in the foot with the ‘boring’ iPhone 7?

Is Apple shooting itself in the foot with the ‘boring’ iPhone 7?

Some people have already made up their mind about the iPhone 7 – or whatever Apple ends up calling its 2016 iPhone series. It’s going to be “boring” because it’ll have the same design as the iPhone 6s. It’s also going to be annoying because it’ll come without the standard 3.5mm audio jack. But that’s far from being completely accurate. The iPhone 7 will be the best iPhone money can buy this fall, likely featuring substantial under-the-hood improvements that include the all-new iOS 10 software.

But is Apple shooting itself in the foot with an iPhone 7 that marks a departure from Apple’s well-known tick-tock iPhone upgrade cycle? Yes and no. More →

New leak highlights how boring the iPhone 7 really is

The iPhone 7 will be a close copy of the iPhone 6s, multiple trustworthy reports claimed, as Apple transitions to a three-year iPhone redesign approach — at least temporarily. The iPhone 7 might not even be called iPhone 7 according to one report, as that honor might apparently be reserved for the 2017 iPhone series, which would mark Apple’s 10-year iPhone anniversary.

Some of the main changes coming to the 2016 iPhone concern the headphone jack, antenna lines and rear cameras, and now a new report says there will be other tiny modifications. More →

Report says there won’t be an iPhone 7 this year

Don’t panic just yet; Apple is still planning to release two new iPhones this year, including 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch successors to 2015’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. But the company may hold the “iPhone 7” name for next year’s new iPhone series and choose a different name for this year’s models, according to a new report.

OnePlus vs. Galaxy S7 edge Speed Test

OnePlus 3 vs. Galaxy S7 edge speed test, round 2: What happens when 6GB of RAM is unleashed?

OnePlus 3 vs. Galaxy S7 edge speed test, round 2: What happens when 6GB of RAM is unleashed?

The OnePlus 3 might be one of the best smartphones you can buy without parting with too much cash, but it’s not necessarily the fastest one. Recent real-life speed tests showed that the OnePlus flagship lags behind the Galaxy S7 edge and the iPhone 6s even though it has an outrageous amount of RAM. The OnePlus 3 packs 6GB of RAM, compared to 4GB for the Galaxy S7 edge and 2GB for the newest iPhone.

OnePlus addressed the RAM management following these tests, saying that the phone doesn’t keep too many apps in memory to conserve battery life. That said, some intrepid hackers came up with an unofficial “fix” for the issue, prompting a second speed test comparison.

iPhone 6s Amazon Scam

This crazy iPhone 6s scam on Amazon isn’t what you think

This crazy iPhone 6s scam on Amazon isn’t what you think

By on June 20, 2016 at 3:15 PM.

Check out these one-star reviews on Amazon for an unlocked 128GB iPhone 6s. Can you imagine how angry you would be if that happened to you? You shell out more than $900 for an unlocked, contract-free iPhone 6s and instead of receiving a shiny new phone in the mail, you get a box full of clay. How could Amazon let this happen? Well, it appears as though the weight of the clay is about the same as the iPhone that would have been in the box, and a fake bar code covered the real one on the packaging. Then the seller makes off with your cash and you’re left trying to shove your SIM card into a lump of clay.

This definitely sounds like one of the crazier scams we’ve seen on Amazon — but it’s even crazier than you think because nothing is what it seems. More →

16GB iPhone 6s iOS 10

iOS 10 will make 16GB iPhones great again

iOS 10 will make 16GB iPhones great again

Apple might ditch the 16GB storage tier in the upcoming iPhone 7, but there are plenty of current iPhone users that have to deal with just 16GB of onboard memory. There are plenty of solutions for optimizing storage on devices with limited memory, including moving data to the cloud, buying external storage solutions like this great iPhone flash drive, and managing installed apps better. But Apple is apparently ready to help out with storage optimization in iOS 10 thanks to what appears to be a hidden feature of the newly announced operating system.

So what if the iPhone 7 is an iPhone 6s clone?

Much has been written these past few months about the upcoming iPhone 7, a device that is shaping up to be an iPhone 6s lookalike rather than a radical redesign. But there’s really nothing wrong with that. In fact, it’s perfectly fine that Apple decided to “copy” the iPhone 6s. After all, everyone else is doing it.

The tech media has turned pretty negative on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus ever since Apple reported a sharp decline in sales. The company simply couldn’t keep up with the incredible sales pace set by the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which flew off the shelves thanks to pent-up demand for iPhones with bigger screens. With all this negative press swirling right now, people seem to be forgetting that these two phones are still the best-selling smartphones on the planet by a huge margin. The iPhone 6s was also the most powerful smartphone the world had ever seen until it was dethroned just recently.

If you’re among the tens of millions of people who happily use an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, we’ve got some great tips that you need to check out. More →

iPhone 6s Vs Galaxy S7

iPhone 6s and Galaxy S7 faced off in a drop test and it was brutal

iPhone 6s and Galaxy S7 faced off in a drop test and it was brutal

Smartphone companies spend so much time and money making their phones thinner, faster and more powerful. But how much work actually goes into making them stronger? Building more durable phones clearly falls somewhere on vendors’ lists of priorities, but some seem to place it higher than others. Millions of people continue to drop and break their phones each year, and protective cases don’t always offer as much protection as users would have hoped.

With all that in mind, the two leading flagship smartphones in the world were recently put to the test in a fight to the death — literally — to see which one is better at withstanding drops. And while both phones seem sturdy enough, one came away the clear winner. More →
