OnePlus One preorder program will launch near the end of October

There have been plenty of fantastic Android smartphones released over the last year, but none have generated quite as much excitement as the surprising OnePlus One. Seemingly from out of nowhere, OnePlus burst onto the scene with its new smartphone featuring a range of impressive specifications and an open source operating system. Obviously, Android users were champing at the bit to get their hands on the phone, but months later, the phone still isn’t available to the public. More →

Android L could be coming to Galaxy S5, Note 4 as early as November

In the wake of iOS 8, the operating system that will power the soon-to-be-shipped iPhone 6, coverage of Android L has slowed to a crawl. Android L debuted over the summer to an overwhelmingly positive response, but as Google has been very deliberate about actually bringing the new OS to Android phones, many Android users have simply moved on with their lives. Thankfully, they might not have to wait much longer. More →

How this hidden iOS 8 add-on is protecting your Internet anonymity

Apple is calling iOS 8 the biggest update to its mobile operating system since the addition of the App Store. That’s a bold claim, but as the adoption rate slowly climbs in anticipation of the iPhone 6 launch, users are finding plenty of new features to back it up. Widgets, extensions and Continuity have received a majority of the attention from early adopters, but Fast Company has brought our attention to another hidden add-on that could help address important privacy concerns.

It doesn’t take a genius to see Samsung didn’t even try to ruin Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus launch

It doesn’t take a genius to see Samsung didn’t even try to ruin Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus launch

Aside from a couple of distinct ad campaigns taking hits at Apple after the iPhone 6 launch – including a horrible one followed by a more successful bashing approach – Samsung didn’t really try to ruin Apple’s iPhone 6 launch, although it could have at least given it a shot. More →

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: Here is our first look

By about 7 hours ago.

Here we go… as is tradition, we always manage to get our hands on Apple’s new iPhones a wee bit early. This year brings two different models, and judging by what has been reported and written, the iPhone 6 is the evolution of the iPhone line, while the iPhone 6 Plus can almost be considering a new type of product for Apple — one that might even be able to replace the iPad mini.

Here are my initial observations, followed by a boatload of photos. More →

‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

We just spoke with multiple sources at carrier stores and authorized Apple retailer partner locations, and the straight up fact is it’s going to harder to find an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow than a Turbo Man. We are told that stores have been receiving shipments all throughout the day, and out of all the new iPhone 6 models received, typically only about 2-3% are iPhone 6 Plus units, and in only one color.

There is “no chance” of finding an iPhone 6 Plus unit to purchase tomorrow, we were told. Sources also said there are no 16GB iPhone 6 Plus devices to be found. More →

Woz explains why he’s dumping all his Android phones for the iPhone 6

It’s amazing how quickly an iPhone with a big display can win someone back.

Embracing the chaos and waiting on painfully long lines to be among the first to own a new iPhone might be a crucial part of the Apple fan experience, but it’s definitely not for everyone.

Probably not, and now there’s a way to see the exact location of your new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus as it sails through the sky on its way to your front steps. More →

Beloved Apple blogger shares iPhone 6’s ‘most disappointing aspect’

Beloved Apple blogger shares iPhone 6’s ‘most disappointing aspect’

Among the thousands of bloggers around the world covering the Apple beat, John Gruber is likely the most beloved and respected by Apple fans. His analyses are often sharp and insightful, and we always enjoy his frank style — even when he’s launching attacks aimed at us. So, when Gruber takes to his blog Daring Fireball and reviews Apple’s brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, it’s safe to assume that his is one of the few reviews out there that is actually worth reading. And an equally safe assumption is that we should take note when he shares his thoughts on “the single-most disappointing aspect of the new phones.” More →
