16GB iPhone 6 Memory Upgrade

Video shows how to upgrade a 16GB iPhone 6 to 128GB for just $60

Video shows how to upgrade a 16GB iPhone 6 to 128GB for just $60

Last November, we learned that it costs just $90 to replace the 16GB flash memory on an iPhone with a 128GB module instead of the $200 extra that Apple would charge to buy a 128GB iPhone. To do that, you’d have to go to China and find iPhone experts that have the skill set to pull off this move, but make sure you leave your warranty at the door.

It turns out that the price has significantly dropped since then, and the 30-minute upgrade now costs $60. Furthermore, a video shows you how it’s made. More →

OnePlus iPhone 6s Case

Hardcore Android fans’ favorite phone maker now sells iPhone 6s cases

Hardcore Android fans’ favorite phone maker now sells iPhone 6s cases

Hardcore Android fans are more than familiar with OnePlus, the Chinese startup that created three interesting Android devices so far, including two high-end devices priced well below what you’d usually expect for flagship handsets – the 2014 OnePlus One and the 2015 OnePlus 2. The company even has a daring, yet somewhat controversial, a motto that’s supposed to explain its smartphone mentality: #NeverSettle. Though, truth be told, OnePlus did settle quite a few times when it comes to the choices it made for its smartphones.

With all that in mind, we couldn’t be more surprised to see OnePlus create accessories for… wait for it… the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

New app brings one of the iPhone 6s’ best new features to older iPhones

New app brings one of the iPhone 6s’ best new features to older iPhones

New iPhones are a double-edged sword. On one hand, they bring exciting new features and big performance improvements to Apple fans. In fact, this year’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are the most powerful smartphones the world has ever seen. On the flip side though, not everyone wants to spend money on a new smartphone each year, so they’re forced to do without all of the nifty new features Apple adds exclusively to new models.

As it turns out, that’s not always true, because a new app has managed to bring one of the iPhone 6s’ best new features to older iPhones including the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s. More →

16GB iPhone 6s Memory Upgrade

16GB iPhone storage issues? For $90, some Chinese repair stores can upgrade memory to 128GB

16GB iPhone storage issues? For $90, some Chinese repair stores can upgrade memory to 128GB

It’s abundantly clear why Apple still makes 16GB iPhones: For the money. At the same time, not all iPhone buyers are willing to pay extra cash for the 64GB or 128GB models, so they end up buying a cheaper 16GB model. There are ways to fix memory needs, including updating to the latest available iOS 9 version, keeping unessential data off the phone, and buying third-party storage solutions that connect wirelessly to the device.

However, some intrepid iPhone repair shops in China have found a way to replace the storage on iPhone and iPad, something that hasn’t been done before. More →

Yet it’s Apple that sets the tone for the rest of the industry to follow, whether it’s creating its own features or reinventing features that others have made.

iPhone 6 Jailbreak 3D Touch Live Photos

How to get 3D Touch functionality and Live Photos on your iPhone 6

How to get 3D Touch functionality and Live Photos on your iPhone 6

3D Touch is the main new feature on the iPhone 6s, offering iOS users ways to navigate apps and multitasking even faster than before (you can, however, turn it off without hindering your iPhone 6s experience). But because 3D Touch needs special hardware components to work, including a unique sensor array in the display and a Taptic Engine, the feature is not backward-compatible. Apple can’t just use software to enable it on the iPhone 6 or older models. Live Photos is another feature unique to the iPhone 6s, transforming simple photos into vivid memories that feature video and sound.

Well guess what: There are now ways to bring these two unique iPhone 6s features to iPhone 6 and older devices, but there are some caveats you should be aware of. More →

3.5-inch iPhone 7 Concept

Video: The iPhone 7 I hope Apple will never make

Video: The iPhone 7 I hope Apple will never make

Don’t get me wrong, I loved the 3.5-inch iPhones at the time. They fit perfectly in my hand and seemed to be just right for anything. But I wouldn’t want to use a new 3.5-inch iPhone no matter how up-to-date it was now that I know what iOS 9 os like on a bigger screen.

However, not all iPhone fans want such large displays on their iPhones, and some are still waiting for Apple to make a new iPhone that would pack the same awesome features available in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s series, but in a smaller package.

While rumors speculate that a 4-inch iPhone 6c is in the making for next year, a graphic designer has now imagined what a 3.5-inch iPhone 7 would look like. More →

Key iPhone tech gets Apple into deep legal troubles: Company risks up to $862.4M in damages

Key iPhone tech gets Apple into deep legal troubles: Company risks up to $862.4M in damages

Apple’s iPhones have consistently been able to outperform rivals from the competition without necessarily matching their hardware. The primary “culprit” is Apple’s custom AX chip design that’s miles ahead of the competition. However, the same chips got Apple in legal troubles, as the company has apparently been using energy-efficiency technology in A7 and A8 processor that was patented way back in 1998 by the University of Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.

WARF sued Apple in early 2014, with a jury finding that Apple has infringed the technology described in the patent. The iPhone maker now faces damages of up to $862.4 millions, though they’re yet to be determined. More →
