Don’t buy these iPhone 7 clones, no matter how good they look

The iPhone 7 won’t be out for three more months, and most reports already say it’ll be a “boring” upgrade over the iPhone 6s when it comes to overall design. The many leaks that hit the web revealed the main differences between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s. But in addition to fueling the passion of iPhone fans, these leaks are also helping Chinese knock-off makers come up with iPhone 7 clones a lot faster than expected. More →

iPhone 7 Price Leak

How much will a 256GB iPhone 7 cost?

How much will a 256GB iPhone 7 cost?

iPhone 7 rumors and speculation are running rampant. The 2016 iPhone will be so “boring” this year that it won’t even be called iPhone 7, some say, because the name will be reserved for next year’s tenth anniversary iPhone. Design, specs and features are often detailed in reports, and we have a general idea of what to expect from this year’s iPhones. Apple made sure of that with a series of stories that were almost certainly planted by the company’s PR team. But how much will the new iPhone cost? Will it be cheaper than last year’s model, or will Apple stick to its typical iPhone prices? More →

OnePlus 3 RAM Screen

OnePlus 3 firmware updated to fix RAM and screen, but you’ll have to wait

OnePlus 3 firmware updated to fix RAM and screen, but you’ll have to wait

The hottest Android phone right now is the OnePlus 3. The third flagship from the Chinese company is far better than predecessors, but it also has some flaws. Luckily for buyers, the RAM management and screen color issues can be fixed with the help of a firmware update. However, there’s a catch: It’s only review units that will receive the over-the-air (OTA) fix initially, with a public release expected to go out in the future.

Shocker! Company that sued Apple over iPhone 6 is a patent troll

Shocker! Company that sued Apple over iPhone 6 is a patent troll

Late last week, reports began to surface indicating that Apple was being forced to halt sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in Beijing due to a patent infringement claim from a company called Schenzhen Baili. Specifically, the company alleged that Apple’s 2014 iPhone models infringed upon the design of its own 100C smartphone.

Touch ID Lawsuit

Apple already won the dumb ‘Error 53’ lawsuit

Apple already won the dumb ‘Error 53’ lawsuit

Apple is no stranger to being sued over everything, by everybody. But the class-action lawsuit over “Error 53,” which occurred when some customers had their TouchID sensors replaced by unauthorized repair shops, was a standout kind of bad.

Luckily, that lawsuit has been stopped before it got anywhere near a jury. Yesterday, a US district court judge dismissed the entire lawsuit, saying that the plaintiffs “lack standing to pursue injunctive relief,” and could not provide sufficient evidence that they had suffered permanent data loss.

iPhone OLED Screen

Let’s all just agree the 2017 iPhone will have an OLED screen

Let’s all just agree the 2017 iPhone will have an OLED screen

I have to keep checking my calendar, because it’s only June 2016, but we already have a pretty solid idea of what 2017’s iPhone is going to look like. I know Apple leaks have been getting worse year-by-year, but this is just getting silly now.

A(nother) well-sourced report from Nikkei has supply-chain research that shows that Samsung and Sharp are ramping up production of OLED screens, in time to be in devices by 2017. As we (and everyone else on the internet) has pointed out, there’s only one mobile company big enough to need this kind of supply ramp-up.

The name starts with ‘A,’ and ends with ‘pple’s going to make an OLED-screen iPhone next year.’

T-Mobile Binge On Study

T-Mobile’s Binge On is misleading users, study finds

T-Mobile’s Binge On is misleading users, study finds

For the past few years, T-Mobile has been making waves with its ‘Un-carrier’ campaign, successfully separating itself from other carriers while shaking up the entire industry in the process.

Quite possibly the biggest Un-carrier move to date was the debut of Binge On, which allows users to stream videos from certain services over their mobile devices, without it counting toward their monthly data allotment.

Unfortunately, despite the appearance of a great offer, Binge On has struggled with bad publicity since its inception, and now a new study from Northeastern University is bringing to light even more issues with the incentive.

iPhone 8 Rumors

Next year’s iPhone may feature a futuristic design that makes Jony Ive’s dream a reality

Next year’s iPhone may feature a futuristic design that makes Jony Ive’s dream a reality

By on June 21, 2016 at 7:10 PM.

Apple’s PR team was hard at work this morning setting expectations for this year’s iPhone refresh. According to a few near-simultaneous reports including this one in The Wall Street Journal, Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus won’t feature any major design changes. Instead, they’ll be pretty well aligned with all of the rumors and leaks we’ve seen: the new iPhones will look a lot like the current iPhones, but they’ll ditch the 3.5mm audio jack and they’ll be slimmer. Remember what we said was probably our first look at a real iPhone 7? Well, it was indeed probably our first look at a real iPhone 7.

We covered WSJ’s big iPhone report earlier on Tuesday, but it’s worth diving into it again. Why? Because a couple of lines near the end of the article give us some pretty big hints of what we can expect from Apple’s future iPhones. More →
