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

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 →

Android users are deserting in droves ahead of iPhone 6 launch, trade-ins up 200%

With countless devices available from dozens of different vendors, Android has taken a significant lead in the international smartphone market. Last week, Apple made its biggest move yet to start converting Android users back to iOS with the unveiling of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, and based on the latest data, it looks like the company’s gamble paid off.

‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

‘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. Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, who in the past has not been shy about criticizing Apple products while at the same time professing his love for rival products such as Android and the Microsoft Surface, now says that he’s getting an iPhone 6 and is dumping all of the Android phones he once praised.

This is what real people think about the real iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

You might have already read all those first iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reviews that are basically saying Apple’s latest iPhones are bigger and better than previous models and their respective rivals. You might have also already seen hilarious reactions from real people who were shown fake or dummy iPhone 6 units long before Apple actually unveiled the device. But now, Re/code has gone out with its actual iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units, asking real people what they think about the new smartphones. 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 →

Finally: Galaxy Note 4 launches October 17th, preorders start tomorrow

Samsung managed to beat Apple to the punch by unveiling its flagship phablet for 2014 before Apple made its new iPhone 6 Plus official, but unfortunately announcing a phone and launching a phone are two very different things. Android fans know exactly what they have to look forward to when the Galaxy Note 4 finally hits store shelves, but they won’t be able to get one in their hands until nearly a month from now; Samsung announced on Thursday that it will begin taking preorders for the new Galaxy Note 4 on Friday, September 19th — which also just happens to be iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch day — ahead of an October 17th release.
