    Folks, Apple has begun to flex its marketing muscle. Hot off of releasing new TV ads starring The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and artist Justin Timberlake, the company is now turning to the almost-prehistoric print media to continue advertising its new iPhones. Its latest set of iPhone 6 print ads boasts actual-sized reproductions of the two new phones. There's nothing too special about these ads other than the fact that they're accurate representations of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The ad pictured below is pulled from Rolling Stone, though the ad could spread to other magazines ...

    Apple has entered a bit of a new product category with the iPhone 6 Plus this year – sure, it may still be an iOS smartphone, but it's nowhere near the same as the iPhone 6. And it's almost all about the size: the 5.5-inch display opens up a whole new world in terms of productivity possibilities. With a new look comes new competitors, one of which is the Oppo Find 7a. Both being 5.5-inch smartphones, they're the perfect matchup for a comparison. So which is better? Our iPhone 6 Plus vs Oppo Find 7a video has the lowdown. In terms of hardware, the two phones are surprisingly similar on ...

    Apple's release of iOS 8 earlier this month may not have been off to the fastest start in the world, but in the days since we last brought you an update about how quickly users are upgrading, numbers are already on the upswing, no doubt as more users find the time to clear off space on their phones in preparation for the update's sizable storage requirements. But even as more and more Apple users make the plunge, we've got a new release waiting in the wings, and now a new leak attempts to reveal some of the changes to expect in the upcoming release of iOS 8.0.1. It's only a partial list of ...

    Does Apple really need to do a lot of convincing to get people excited about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus? Probably not, at least based on the record sales numbers Apple's reporting. But it surely can't hurt to get the word out there, and to help it accomplish this task, the company has tapped the voice talents of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. After starring in an early set of clips two weeks back on launch day, the duo is back with two more, talking-up the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus's size and camera prowess. To Apple fans who watched the launch event and have been following subsequent ...

    By most accounts, Apple is half-done with its 2014 mobile hardware launches. The other week brought us news of new iPhones and the company's first smartwatch designs, leaving us to wait for word of the next iPads at a separate event – one that some sources suggest could come as soon as next month. But just what would this iPad launch bring us? A few ideas for the new hardware have been mentioned, including a second-gen iPad Air, third-gen iPad mini, and maybe even a giant 12.9-inch model called the iPad Pro. The iPad Air 2's the easy money, but what about the other two? A new report ...

    This year's iOS update is one of the best yet. But as with most things, there are two sides to the story. While iOS 8 brings many long-requested features to Apple's mobile OS, it also brings something most users aren't used to seeing on the platform – honest to goodness bugs and glitches. In droves. Let's take a step back for a second. This update, iOS 8, is long overdue and quite nice. It brings many great things. In particular, Apple added third-party APIs, which it calls Extensibility, to allow more third-party developer and user control over the operating system and, ultimately, the ...

    Ready to be jealous? The months leading up to Apple's launch of the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Apple Watch may have seen plenty of hardware leaks deliver early looks at the company's new smartphones, but compared to those handsets the Apple Watch was practically a stealth project. By now, the cat's out of the bag, with Apple having formally introduced the wearable, but we've still got at least three months to go before any of us will have an opportunity to pick up an Apple Watch for ourselves. If you live out west in Apple's stomping grounds, you might want to prepare yourself for several months ...

    Over the last few years, smartphones have evolved to accommodate for new use cases, primarily multimedia consumption – gaming, watching YouTube videos and movies, and browsing the web. As a result smartphones have grown from less than 4-inches in size to an average rapidly approaching the 5-inch threshold. Apple is one of the very last to jump on the larger smartphone bandwagon. Its last increase in size was from a 3.5-inch display to a 4-inch display, adding only vertical dimension and pixels to the existing panel. That wasn't enough, though. Other smartphones dwarfed the iPhone 5 and ...

    It's no secret that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are attracting some serious interest from shoppers. Users are flocking to the new sizes as if 3.5 and 4-inch iPhones never existed, embracing this new era for Apple's hardware. Last week, we saw the company confirm a record start to its pre-orders, pulling in four million in just the first day alone. Since then, we've seen outright sales begin, including those at Apple's retail stores. Now Apple's stepping up to announce another record-setting statistic, selling north of ten million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets in the three days following ...

    Apple was on top of the smartphone market for quite some time, and Samsung wanted a piece of it. Between all the lawsuits and patent claims, Samsung has been running commercials trying to convince us that Samsung products are superior to Apple products. In addition to the normal commercials that one might expect, Samsung has also run commercials making fun of Apple, and everyone hated them. But not for the reasons you might expect. Back when Apple was set to release its new iPhone, Samsung ran commercials of people lined up, waiting to buy the latest creation from Apple. We'd overhear ...

    That title calls for a disclaimer. As anyone who's looked at my Twitter profile knows, I’m not just a Windows phone user; I use Android too, and I occasionally sprinkle in BlackBerry and Sailfish when I'm feeling sporty. But I spend a little less than half my waking time with Windows software powering my communicator of choice, and my last 24 hours with iOS have given me a few insights about how these platforms differ – and how they don’t. From aesthetics to fluidity, Apple and Microsoft match up nicely. Both iOS and Windows Phone are tightly controlled software experiences that ...

    Updated with the high-quality edited version of the podcast, which you can stream or download down below (or through your favorite podcatcher app). We hope you enjoyed; we'll check back in with you next week! If you ask us, the first thing you should do on iPhone launch day is take a long, hard look at the competition. Not because the iPhone is a bad product, but because everyone else tends to step up their game when Apple brings a new phone –or two– to the yard. And that's more true than ever this year. With that in mind, we'll talk about all kinds of smartphone and smartwatch ...

    Hold onto your butts: it’s iPhone day. As you may have seen, my colleague Taylor Martin earlier today took delivery of Apple’s new 5.5-inch phablet the iPhone 6 Plus, which we spent a little time getting to know on today's Pocketnow Weekly podcast. As for me, well ... I’ve had my fill of big smartphones for the moment, so I opted for the lesser of two iPhones. Cutting the protective film away and lifting up the box lid carefully so as to avoid any accidents, we’re shown the device front-and-center, a presentation that’s become widespread - but don’t forget: Apple is the ...

    After years of customers begging for a larger iPhone, Apple finally obliged. Just last week, it announced the brand new set of bigger iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 comes with a 4.7-inch display while the 6 Plus comes with a rather larger 5.5-inch display. The new iPhones are launching alongside Apple's newest version of its mobile software, iOS 8. This brings much-anticipated features, like third-party keyboards, sharing, widgets, and access to TouchID. Despite very few visual changes, this is one of the most notable iOS updates ever. The new iPhones feature an ...
