List of most popular iPhone models might surprise you

For years, Apple remained steadfast in its position that smartphones with bigger screens were unwieldy and not user friendly. In fact, Apple in 2012 released an iPhone 5 commercial boasting that the device, on account of its 4-inch form factor, could be operated comfortably with one’s thumb.

A pair of reliable sources have pegged March 15 as the date when Apple will introduce a trio of new products, including an iPhone 5se, an iPad Air 3, and a subtly enhanced version of the Apple Watch.

This must be the sketchiest iPhone 7 rumor we’ve seen yet

This must be the sketchiest iPhone 7 rumor we’ve seen yet

Even though the iPhone 7 will not be unveiled for at least seven more months, more and more rumors about its design and features emerge every day. Some of them are more believable while others are rather on the iffy side. Such is the case with a sketchy report from Asia that proposes some wild features for the iPhone 7, including a purported design render. More →

Tim Cook talks iPhone growth and teases ‘far off’ products during company meeting

Tim Cook talks iPhone growth and teases ‘far off’ products during company meeting

In the wake of Apple’s earnings announcement last week, CEO Tim Cook and COO Jeff Williams held court at a Town Hall meeting for employees. For those unfamiliar with Apple’s Town Hall meetings, they’re internal and private affairs intended to give employees a somewhat rare opportunity to ask the company’s top brass anything that happens to be on their mind.

Detailing some of the highlights from Apple’s most recent Town Hall event, the exceptionally reliable Mark Gurman over at 9to5Mac provides us with an interesting peek into what employees wanted to know about Apple’s future plans and what Apple executives were comfortable divulging.

Smaller iPhone Models

Nearly 40% of iPhone owners are still using 4-inch devices and smaller

Nearly 40% of iPhone owners are still using 4-inch devices and smaller

New smartphone data from Mixpanel reveals that Apple’s older iPhone models are more popular than many would have otherwise assumed. As of this week, Mixpanel’s data found that approximately 38% of iPhone users are using iPhone models that predate the iPhone 6.

Mixpanel’s data effectively supports Tim Cook’s recent remarks indicating that 60% of iPhone owners who owned devices before the larger-screened iPhone 6 was launched in September of 2014 still haven’t upgraded to either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s. That being the case, it appears that Apple has a huge base of installed users arguably on the cusp of upgrading.

iPhone Android App Piracy

Another crucial reason why app developers prefer iOS to Android

Another crucial reason why app developers prefer iOS to Android

While the fight between iPhone and Android persists, the fact is that no matter what platform you choose, you’ll get a great experience. There’s great hardware on either side and amazing apps to complement them. Sure, iPhone has definitive advantages over Android, but, in turn, Android outshines iPhone in some ways.

However, there’s still one key area where iPhone always wins that Google has not managed to address. More →

Apple Watch Killer App

The Apple Watch can tell time and nobody cares

The Apple Watch can tell time and nobody cares

Another Apple earnings report is in the books and we still have no clue as to how well the Apple Watch is selling, a notable curiosity given Apple’s affinity for sales figures. In typical fashion, Tim Cook last week described the Apple Watch in broad strokes, simply stating that sales during the company’s 2015 holiday quarter set an all-time sales record. Encouraging? Sure, but without any additional information about previous sales figures, a record-breaking quarter doesn’t really tell us a whole lot about its overall popularity.

The takeaway here, I think, is that the Apple Watch is doing well, but not so well as to warrant the release of specific sales figures. Admittedly, this is hardly a controversial or original sentiment. Nonetheless, a looming question remains – will the Apple Watch forever be marked with the ‘accessory’ label, or might it someday become a sweeping global phenomenon and impressive money maker a’la the iPod?

iPhone 3D Touch Home Button

Is this how Apple plans to remove the iPhone’s home button?

Is this how Apple plans to remove the iPhone’s home button?

Much has been written in recent months about Apple’s potential iPhone plans for the future and some reports have suggested that the introduction of 3D Touch functionality in the iPhone 6s is a hint that the home button will be going away at some point in the future. In fact, the only thing Apple has to do to preserve all the features the home button is to add fingerprint-sensing capabilities to the device’s touch display, and now a newly unearthed patent may show us how Apple plans to achieve this.

Best Email Apps For iPhone

The only 5 email apps iPhone users should consider using

The only 5 email apps iPhone users should consider using

There are a few cases where a pre-installed iPhone app made by Apple is the best tool for a particular job, but the Mail app certainly isn’t one of them. For light email users, it’s a nice clean option that offers a fairly basic set of features and a nice user interface. For the rest of us, we need a solution that offers a broader feature set than Apple’s Mail app will likely ever offer.

I’ve personally been back on the hunt for a new email app ever since my email solution of choice was shut down by Dropbox. And no, I still haven’t forgiven the company. I’ve gone through more than a dozen apps in my search for a Mailbox replacement though, and in this post I’ll save you the pain and suffering that I’ve had to endure. More →
