    Regardless of how good Apple is in keeping secrets, the company has shown us that it has done a poor job in concealing its previous iPhone designs. Just two years ago we saw the iPhone 5 leaked everywhere, and the same could be said about the iPhone 5s. The iPhone 6 has been another topic of intense rumor activity for the last couple of weeks, and today we get the hottest leaks yet. Today we've come across the first leaked photos of the device's housing, which definitely resembles a bigger iPhone, but also one that looks almost identical to the current iPhone 5s. This image was reportedly ...

    Even with Apple's level of secrecy, it's hard to denny that all the iPhone 5 rumors showed us that Apple is getting really sloppy at it. We've seen the internet flooded with rumors on the iPhone 6, and these have given us a lot of detail on what to expect from both of the smartphones being planned. We've debated the possibility of two larger iPhones coming soon, but recent leaks continue to prove that Apple is off to change its own way of doing things. A Japanese Magazine has just published the probable schematics of both the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models that are being ...

    With so many rumors of Apple bringing a sapphire display into its next iOS device line-up, we've heard of the continuous efforts the company is doing in order to guarantee it'll be able to deliver. The company has slowly begun to incorporate sapphire glass into things like the glass surface of the camera, or the glass surface of TouchID, but these are small steps when compared to building every single display from sapphire. Still, Apple's need to differentiate its products is big, and we're hearing more rumors of how the company plans to make this happen. Even though we still haven't seen ...

    With wearables becoming "a thing" lately, we've seen attempts from Samsung, Pebble, LG and even Google. The results are definitely promising, as companies like Motorola have figured out a way to make these watches look elegant, and not necessarily something that only a teenager would use. The only company we haven't seen actually launch a product is Apple, and given all the rumors of the iWatch lately, we continue to wonder how Cupertino plans to differentiate its offering. According to the Financial Times, Apple has been in direct contact with many employees from Swiss watchmaker Hublot, ...

    Ever since the launch of the original iPad, we've seen Apple explore different ways to build a case for it, and has succeeded in some, and failed terribly in others. The company even built a keyboard stand for the original iPad, which it decided to not continue after the launch of the iPad 2, for reasons it never made public. What the company has never done, is mix a case with a keyboard, and given how successful third-party companies have been with the concept, it seems Apple wants to take a stab at the market. A new patent reveals a new "Smart Case" with a keyboard attached to it. What ...

    One of the coolest features of iOS 7 is really the one people take the most for granted. The concept of having everything work through layers of logical order is what makes it simple to move your way around. Still, Apple seems to want to take this concept a step further, as layers can also be applied to your surroundings if you want to. Apple is envisioning a new technology called "transparent texting" and the idea is that instead of having the messaging app show you the typical white background, the iPhone will detect if you're moving and portray whatever the back camera is capturing at ...

    We've heard so many rumors of what to expect for Apple's iPhone 6 line-up that we don't know where to start. We say line-up because we've got rumors of a 4.7-inch smartphone and a 5.5-inch phablet. Whatever the case is, most of the rumors pointed to an announcement happening at WWDC 2014 in June, and now, rumors push that launch until later. Japanese sources are claiming that we shouldn't expect a launch for the iPhone 6 smartphones before September of this year. The reason why these rumors are credible is because these are the same exact Japanese sources that gave the exact announcement ...

    Apple's production of sapphire is full steam ahead, and many of us believe that the company will use it on its next generation iPhone. Still, we all know that glass gets smudged easily, and therefore we've seen the company use oleophobic coating on its display technology since the dawn of the iPhone 3GS. If you still doubted about the possibility of Apple using sapphire on its future iPhone line-up, we suggest your think again, as new patents tell us a different story. Apple has just filed a patent that brings oleophobic coating to sapphire glass. Obviously the only reason why you would ...

    Recently we saw how iOS 7.1 was jailbroken, but judging by the video that we caught, we understood that this was only applicable to the iPhone 4 running on Apple's legacy A4 chip. Obviously the difference in processor architecture poses an additional challenge to developers in finding exploits, and thus makes jailbreaking difficult across the the whole iOS line-up of products. Today we hear new progress for jailbreaking iOS 7.1 which we're sure will make many of you happy. In a response on Twitter, developer iH8sn0w confirmed that his iPhone 4s is Jailbroken on iOS 7.1. Given the fact ...

    This editorial was originally programed as “Sorry iPhone 6, I’m getting the All New HTC One” just a couple of days ago. Sadly, as much as I wish I wasn’t writing this, I just have to. Have you ever gone through the experience of seeing so much hype for a product that eventually ends-up disappointing you? I’ve gone through that experience time over time in things like fitness, where I’ve paid tons of cash for pairs of headphones that are retailed as “sweat proof”, and which die on me after a week of intense running. As a result, they lose a customer, and their brand loses my ...

    We're just a couple of weeks away from more drama between Apple and Samsung due to patent litigation. One of the advantages of these trials is that a lot of the secrecy behind the development of the original iPhone has been revealed. One of the primary software engineers in-charge of developing iPhone OS back in the day, which we now know as iOS, has come clear as to how an ultimatum from Steve Jobs himself resulted in the smartphone revolution that you know today. Greg Christie is famously know for being named in most, if not all of the software patents behind iOS. In an interview with ...

    Microsoft has really taken its time with Windows Phone 8.1, and the amount of expectation behind this release is huge. We saw a minor announcement of what we can expect during MWC 2014, but no substantial information as to when we should see it in actual consumer hardware. With Android 4.4 KitKat and iOS 7 gaining significant traction, it's clear that Redmond feels some pressure, and we finally see some progress today. It's being reported that Windows Phone 8.1 is ready, at least for its core team. The next step is for us to see the RTM (Release to Manufacturers) version, aside from the ...
