A look back at the first iPhone rumor that ever was

In the tech world today, there are no more secrets. And with respect to smartphones in particular, it’s practically impossible for a company to release a new device without having important specs, features and details leak out ahead of time. Indeed, upcoming products from nearly all handset manufacturers are routinely subjected to an endless stream of conjecture and speculation.

That said, the iPhone in particular seems to engender more interest and intrigue than any other device on the planet. What’s especially interesting is that iPhone rumors were all the rage even years before Steve Jobs unveiled the device to the world back in 2007. In fact, the first iPhone rumor of note appeared all the way back in 2002, just months after the original iPod was released.

Apple takes another important step toward building a waterproof iPhone

Apple’s iPhone 7 will be one of the hottest smartphones to hit stores this year, and plenty of rumors have detailed its design and some of the most important new features we’re expecting. But as has been the case with every previous iPhone model, Apple will probably find additional ways to tweak the iPhone’s internal components that aren’t discernible to the user, even thought they’ll help make the overall experience better than before. In fact, new discoveries suggest that future iPhones may have much better waterproofing and will sport even better audio technology. More →

iPhone 7 Sales

Apple’s iPhone 7 will probably smash existing sales records

By on June 3, 2016 at 7:40 AM.

Apple’s iPhone 7 will probably smash existing sales records

The upcoming iPhone 7 has arguably been subject to more speculation than any previous iPhone release, in large part because many analysts and pundits believe that we may have finally hit ‘peak iPhone.’ As a result, the iPhone 7 will not only be judged by what features it brings to the table, but also by its ability to restore sales growth to Apple’s iPhone lineup. Remember, 2016 marked the first year that Apple experienced a year over year decline in iPhone sales.

All that said, the pressure is on for Apple’s iPhone 7 to deliver in a big and perhaps unprecedented way. Looking ahead, many analysts seem to be unimpressed by iPhone 7 rumors and are already predicting yet another lull in iPhone sales in 2017. But not everyone is taking such a pessimistic view.

Best Email App For iPhone

Morning Mail for iPhone is an email app like you’ve never seen before

Morning Mail for iPhone is an email app like you’ve never seen before

Email hurts and everyone knows the pain all too well. Inboxes have a funny way of overflowing with more messages than you know what to do with, and it can be overwhelming. Facebook notifications, emails from your boss, emails from your coworkers, emails from your parents asking you how to fix their email… it all tends to pile up faster than you can deal with it. Isn’t there any way to stop it?

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that the answer is no, there really isn’t a way to stop it and remain a productive member of developed society. But the good news is that there are new options out there that might help make dealing with email slightly less painful. More →

America’s favorite smartphone isn’t an iPhone

America’s favorite smartphone isn’t an iPhone

There’s little question that iPhone users love their smartphones. Regardless of how negative the current news cycle is, Apple’s iPhone lineup is still the best-selling smartphone line in the world by a wide margin. Studies and surveys also consistently show that Apple retains smartphone customers better than any other phone brand, and this has been the case for years. Interestingly, however, a new major study has found that a new smartphone is now the Apple of the American consumer’s eye. More →

5 things you can do to make your iPhone faster

Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are two of the fastest smartphones in the world. In fact, in real-world speed tests there’s no phone that can beat them.

But as quick as they are and as smooth as the iOS user experience is in general, things can always be faster.

In this post, we’ll show you five simple things you can do to give your iPhone a serious speed boost, and these tips will all work regardless of which iPhone model you own. More →

iPhone Market Share 2016

Apple’s mobile market share sees big drop in May as Android skyrockets

Apple’s mobile market share sees big drop in May as Android skyrockets

Sales of Apple’s iPhone line of smartphones declined for the first time ever last quarter and everyone has been down on Apple ever since, from the media and investors and even to many end users. What’s more, iPhone 7 leaks have suggested that Apple’s upcoming new smartphones for 2016 will feature a design that’s largely the same as the company’s current iPhone models. Apple’s situation certainly isn’t as dark as some are making them out to be, but there’s little question that things are trending downward right now — and May’s mobile market share data offers even more gloomy data to that effect.

Facebook Listening iPhone Android

How to stop Facebook from using your iPhone or Android to listen to everything you say

How to stop Facebook from using your iPhone or Android to listen to everything you say

Yes, Facebook is listening in on the conversations you have when your phone is nearby and the app is open. It’s not for advertising purposes, the company claims. Instead, it simply wants to help you post easier and faster, about the kind of content you might be consuming, as Facebook is hunting for the background noise to identify TV shows or music.

Can it be stopped? Yes, it can. You can restrict Facebook’s access to the iPhone or Android device’s microphone in order to limit its reach. More →
