    You might remember that at the launch of the HTC One M8 I wrote an article titled “I was going to switch my iPhone 5s to an HTC One M8, but..”  and my arguments for avoiding the change were based on the poor camera, its lack of a fingerprint scanner, and the fact that boom sound wasn’t everything. Fast forward to today, give me an HTC One M8 for a week and now my iPhone is in a drawer. Since a lot of you asked us why this happened in our previous After The Buzz episode of the HTC One (M8), we'll compare both of these devices in a video, and tell you the reasons why. There is no such ...

    Apple is reportedly going to launch two different iPhone models this year, and even though we've called both devices the iPhone 6, we do know that there are significant differences between both of them. Earlier this year the rumors were that these devices would launch separately, but two credible reports recently have pointed to a launch date of both devices on September 19th. At this point it's hard to confirm that, and with some new reports today of a later date, things have begun to get complicated. A new source is claiming that both iPhone models will have a different name, just like ...

    One benefit that many people have found in owning Apple iOS products is the combination of its AppleCare+ extended warranty, and Apple's Genius Bar service. For $99 you receive two years of warranty protection for any iPad or iPhone, and in case of any accidental damage to the device on your part, you could replace your iPad for $49, or iPhone for $79, with a total of two incidents being covered. Sadly if you didn't purchase the warranty when you bought the product, the most you were allowed to wait was 30 days, though Apple has just decided to change that. As of yesterday Apple is now ...

    Apple has garnered some fame for its "Reuse and Recycle" policy for iPhones and iPads. You can trade devices as old as the iPhone 3G from 2008, to the iPhone 5 of 2012 and get some credit for your iPhone upgrade. With prices ranging from $99 for an iPhone 4, to $199 for an iPhone 4s, upgrading to another device could be free on contract in some cases, and that deal was much sweeter with devices like the iPhone 5, though we used the word "was" intentionally. Apple has just cut the trade-in value of the iPhone 5 from $270 to just $225, which is a whopping $45 less. This change is currently ...

    Both Android L and iOS 8 have been hot topics of late. Both developer previews have provided us with plenty to look forward to – third-party keyboards and sharing options in iOS, a new design language in Android L, built-in health and fitness features for both, and major improvements all around. Yesterday, we compared the Android L and iOS 8 developer previews, and while we understand these still are not completely finished versions of software, there are some things we'd like to change about each OS. There are things Google could learn from Apple and vice versa. Below, you will find ...

    Apple's launch of the iPhone 4s was met with much praise because of one particular feature, Siri. Ever since then, competing companies have evolved what we previously knew as simple "voice command" into something that can actually assist you with certain tasks. There is still much work to be done in order to improve these services, which still remain in beta for the most part, and it seems that Apple has a master plan that could be executed soon. A recent article by Wired magazine points to all of the recent efforts that Apple has been commanding in order to improve Siri's reliability. ...

    Apple's historically made back-to-school promotions available for students during the summer season, and this year is no exception. There are deals to be had in the 2014 Apple Back to School promotion on iPads, iPhones, and Macs, so listen up to find out just how much you'll be able to save. Let's talk iPhone first, as that's always a hot topic among students. You'll get a $50 Apple Store gift card (not the iTunes kind), with no further discount -- that's not to say that's a bad deal, though. If you're buying an iPad, you'll receive the same $50 gift card, but you will be able to couple ...

    Ever since the launch of the first-generation iPhone, Apple's obsession over making a phone that's thinner and lighter than its competition has always been clear. Ergonomics are a big deal for the Cupertino kids, and every subsequent launch of the iPhone has seen additional loss in weight and millimeters. Rumors have the iPhone 6 going through the same process, but manufacturing issues have already begun to surface. Reports have it that for the iPhone 6 to be just 6 mm thin, Apple has recurred to using just one Brightness Enhancement Film (BEC) in its backlight. The iPhone has historically ...

    We're a little over two months removed from the release of iOS 7.1.1, and a lot's happened since then. The attention of devs and users alike may be soundly focused on iOS 8 by this point, but in the days leading up to WWDC 2014, we picked up on the rumor that a new 7.1.2 update was imminent. It may have taken a little longer than we expected to get here, but today finally brings word that 7.1.2 is arriving for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models. The release is Apple's build 11D257, and the OTA weighs-in at a little over 30 megs. So what's new? Well, that problem with mail attachments not ...

    Even though the web is full of photos of iPhone 6 mock-ups, we all know these are based on the leaked schematics we saw months ago, and not really something that came out of a Foxconn assembly plant. Prototypes evolve, as we learned with devices like the iPhone 5, and clearly Apple has months until the final release of the iPhone 6 in order to polish the final design. If you're wondering what additional polish is missing, rumors already point to what to expect. Leaks from trusted sources in Japan point to major changes, starting with the plastic borders we currently see. The report claims ...

    Summer can be expensive: all those tankfuls of gas for road trips to the beach, tickets to the latest blockbuster movie, and you probably don't even want to look at what that A/C is costing you to keep cool. If you're trying to keep a handle on spending, though, that doesn't mean you have to pass up on some of the hottest smartphones and their accessories, and today we've spotted a couple solid deals that should help your summer dollar stretch a little farther. Apple's iPhone pricing has been notorious for its resistance to discounts. That's not to say that we don't see them, but while ...

    Apple hasn't been seeing its best times when it comes to its iPod line-up, and these changes were expected. Apple at some point admitted that it would be smarter to cannibalize the iPod itself by selling the iPhone, than to see another company do it. As a result, the company has seen terrible quarter results with its music player, and it's only logical that it should work on ways to make it more attractive. Today Apple has decided to ditch its entry-level front-facing 16GB iPod Touch, and to launch a regular 16GB iPod Touch that has all the bells and whistles, aside from all the same color ...

    Now that the Google I/O dust has settled down (just a little bit), we can turn our heads and attention to the main competition: Apple. We're hearing reports talking about the iPhone 6 launch date, and Friday, September 19, 2014, is the date rumored. Apple is expected to unveil a 4.7 and a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and apparently there will be no 16GB version; this year, Apple is rumored to only offer 32 and 64GB versions. However, the same way we heard that only the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will get OIS features for its camera -- the larger phone being positioned, according to reports, as the premium ...

    In the last month, both Apple and Google have unveiled their upcoming versions of their respective mobile platforms, iOS 8 and Android "L" as it shall be called for now. It's in our nature to want to compare the two opposing operating systems and divide out which OS had which features first, but that's a fruitless battle that is never-ending. Both updates come with some very important features in tow which help performance, future-proofing, appearance, fluidity, and usability. Below, you will find a comparison of the two updates – what each will bring, how they look, and more.   ...
