    Concept designs are hard to follow, as they are usually just the ideal that a designer has of how a device should look. What's cool about the iPhone 6 is that with the leaked schematics that were discovered a couple of weeks ago, we've landed some interesting designs that are fully based on factual data, and that could lead to a clear idea of what to expect. Obviously these designs could be based on prototype data and not the actual iPhone 6, so we can't say we fully trust what we see. In this particular case, MacRumors commissioned designer Ferry Passchier to create some full product ...

    Apple has been doing a lot of hiring lately, and that mainly has to do with some recent departures in key areas that have failed to impress, like Maps for example. The company's credibility has been seriously question because of issues like these, and it's clear that Tim Cook needs to revamp as much of the department as possible. Today we hear that Apple has snatched yet another Amazon A9 executive, and this time to fix things that are actually broken. Benoit Dupin, former Vice President of Amazon A9′s Search Technology group, has left the company for Apple. Amazon has removed his ...

    As we continue to read more about what to expect for iOS 8, it's clear that if Apple wants to take fitness seriously, an fitness wearable has to be included in the package. We've heard rumors of the company working on its own smartwatch for months now, and Apple's key focus with this device is mainly geared toward the fitness crowd. If you're asking yourself how Apple might plan to differentiate the iWatch from its current competition, rumors point to some unique features to come. One of the most interesting rumors points to the iWatch including a UV light exposure sensor. What this will ...

    Even though we're still a couple of months away from Apple's WWDC 2014 event, there's a high level of certainty that we'll see the company's latest version of iOS being announced. It's hard to know if it'll be dubbed iOS 8, as we've seen cases like iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2, where we never really saw a push beyond the same number during the whole year. Let's just continue calling it iOS 8 until Apple says otherwise at the event, as we have more details on what to expect. Apparently iOS 8 is known as codename "Okemo" inside of Apple's premises. The new set of rumors continue to point to Apple ...

    When you think about an Android OEM that has a lot of potential growth in the low to mid-range market, who comes to mind? Motorola? Heck, maybe even Nokia with those new Nokia X models? The latest figures out of India reveal some healthy performance from a company that's not always on our list of mid-range OEMs to keep an eye out for, revealing Sony outpacing Apple in its share of the Indian market. Looking at Q4 2013, Samsung still dominated the Indian market with a 43% value share, but Sony manged to grab 9.1%, versus Apple's 7%. Sony's sales are apparently being driven by devices priced ...

    Apple has been famous for making some of the most iconic ads in history. I'm sure most of you remember the 1984 ad that the company ran for the launch of the Mac, which is still regarded as one of the best of all time, and we've seen the company do more with the iPod and iPhone over the years. Still, we've seen Apple worried about how Samsung is denting its image lately, and a new conversation revealed by the Apple vs. Samsung trial shows how disappointed the company is. In an email chain between Phil Schiller and Apple's famous ad agency TBWA/Media Arts Lab. following an article written ...

    Testimonies continue in the Apple vs. Samsung trial, and this time we have the leading software engineer in charge of basic features like "slide to unlock," Greg Christie on the bench. Today we find this feature in absolutely every smartphone that you can buy, but before the iPhone, all you had was a power-standby key. Christie spent a good deal of time explaining to the Jury how long it took the company to figure out a smart way to reach consumers with the iPhone, and the details are quite revealing. According to Christie's testimony, things like slide-to-unlock were features they took ...

    I know, I've been writing about tablets as productivity tools a lot this week and last – more than usual. That's due in part to a video I was scheduled to make late last week – the one about going tablet-only for a day – and it getting replaced with another tablet-centric video about Microsoft's Office for iPad. After months upon months of rumors of the popular Office suite for iPad, Microsoft finally made it official last Thursday. For free, you're not going to get a lot from Microsoft on the iPad, though. The Office Mobile app, which has been around for some time for Android ...

    Apple was definitely not the first company to provide the world with a "voice command" service, but the company sure improved the concept. Siri may not be the best service out there, but it has pioneered a trend that we can now find in Google Now and Cortana. Obviously Siri is the result of multiple acquisitions that Apple has done in the last couple of years, and even though it's not common for a company to get acquired silently these days, it seems that Apple has been doing just that. Novauris is one of the pioneers of speech recognition software, or at least was as the company got ...

    Apple's World Wide Developer Conference is probably the biggest event that the company hosts every year. During the event, those lucky developers that can get a ticket have the opportunity to work directly with Apple on ways to improve their applications. It's also the event where Steve Jobs has announced devices like the iPhone 4, and where we expect to see something great this year as well. Apple has just announced that the event starts on June 2nd, and that it'll go through June 6th. Historically, the first day is used for Tim Cook's keynote, and just like we saw iOS 7 last year, and ...

    With Apple's possible launch of the iPhone 6, we've seen leaked images that show a device with a protruding camera lens, just as we see today with the iPod Touch. We know that Apple has a lot of pressure to innovate in its camera offering, and there have been ongoing leaks about the possibility of optical image stabilization, and even Apple's decision to ditch the idea. It's hard to tell if the next generation iPhone will include any of this, but one of the older patents we saw last month has resurfaced. We saw earlier how Apple is experimenting in using magnetic interchangeable lenses, ...

    As the trial of Apple vs. Samsung continues today, we've already heard Apple's arguments as to why Samsung has benefited from the whole development process of building phones through Apple's experience with the iPhone. Obviously the next step was for Samsung to defend itself, and you'd think that Samsung would counter Apple's arguments during its opening statement, but the company insists that it's just a victim. As it turns out, Samsung's attorney Bob Quinn decided to pull out an old 2010 email written by Steve Jobs to his staff to address the battle between Apple and Google as the "Holy ...
