    The AppleCare+ warranty extension program looks pretty sweet and straightforward at first glance. For an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, it covers two accidental damage incidents up to two years from your original purchase date, and it only costs $130 upfront, as well as $100 for each major repair. Repair isn’t exactly the right word, since Cupertino will replace your broken 6s or 6s Plus with a brand-new unit under the terms of this agreement. Or any other iDevice, for that reason, with varying fees. Meanwhile, standard AppleCare warranties merely have your backs for 12 months, and offer no ...

    We've been following iOS 10 beta since it's initial launch at WWDC 2016. This is definitely one of Apple's best and most reliable updates ever since the company's initial rebound with iOS 7. We're still months away from the final public release, but the beta program continues to progress. Apple has just launched iOS 10 beta 3 to developers. Sadly the company isn't really specific over what improvements we can find when compared to beta 2. The only thing Cupertino mentions is that these are bug fixes and improvements to previous launches. Beta 2 was notorious for its unreliable battery life ...

    We aren't too close to a walletless society yet as cash is still king in some territories — like diners right before 5am. But if we're going to need cash at some point in our daily lives, we just might be able to ditch the plastic and use our phones. FIS, a payment technologies company, and Payment Alliance International, the US's largest ATM provider and servicer, have come together to deliver a "Cardless Cash" solution to over 70,000 NYCE network machines across the nation. It comes at a time when more con artists than ever are attaching skimmers to ATM card slots and using near-field ...

    The market continues to be bullish for Apple. It's expected to recover from its first revenue contraction in years with the help of the iPhone 7 and the people who would buy it. And there are plenty of people who would buy it to replace their old iPhone. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, for example, is expecting planned iPhone 7 upgrades from nearly 15 percent of users. Furthermore, 29 percent of iPhone owners are considering an upgrade and 67.3 percent of all iPhone owners have shot over their two-year carrier upgrade cycle. Munster surveyed 400 iPhone owners in the US to get these ...

    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not ...

    The second iOS 10 beta for developers is out and people have been digging up little changes from feature recalls, new icons and plenty of options. 3D Touch options have been revised in the Control Center. Your organ donation preference is available to toggle in the Health app. Oh, and we have a new home button action: you can now rest your finger to unlock your device. It's a convenience measure that takes away the enforced extra tap of the home button to get away from the lock screen in the first developer beta. It also feels like a better obviation of the whole "slide to unlock" ...

    How long can Apple keep its margins so high? So long as factories want to get on the iPhone hype train and think they can get good money from Cupertino contracts. But when Apple struggles, everyone else struggles harder. So it goes that some in Taiwanese industry is telling Digitimes that Apple's traditional sources are in a heated bidding war with other components sources. Specifically, camera supplier Largan is facing off with Kantatsu of Japan while Taiwan's own Wistron has been added on to the assembly roster alongside Pegatron and Foxconn. With Apple crunching down its bill of ...

    Samsung may be the strong arm in the displays industry, especially in OLED panels. It's expected to make some 239 million this year just for its own purposes. Digitimes is estimating 560 million panels to be made for Samsung and other customers by 2019. With regards to talk of Samsung providing AMOLED displays to Apple for next year's iPhone, it seems that the company will be sharing just enough for a certain variant (or two) of it. 40 million is the target for 2017, followed by 80 million units in 2018 and 120 million in 2019. That 40 million number is only about half of a good year's ...

    Rumors surrounding an iPhone with an OLED display continue to grow strong. We've seen how Cupertino and Samsung have been slow dancing lately to the rhythm of a partnership that has stirred strong rumors surrounding this particular endeavor. We also know that Apple is not famous for placing all its eggs in one basket, and this is not the exception. Sources claim that Apple and Sharp will partner in order to bring a second supplier for the company's OLED plans in the future. If you've been following the facts though, you know that Sharp is one of Apple's existing display partners, but the ...

    I’m in no way shape or form what one would consider to be an office worker, desk jockey, pencil pusher, etc… I’m a railroad mechanic by trade. Aside from ordering the necessary parts to complete my job or to complete the appropriate work orders to receive pay I have very little use for a computer day to day at work. If it can’t be beat with a sledgehammer, cut with an oxygen/acetylene torch, welded, or taken apart with a wrench I have no use for it in my professional life. Probably the most tech friendly thing I use in my job is using my phone to stream music via Google Play all ...

    iMessage is not coming to Android. Why? It's part AI war and part good business. The Verge's Walt Mossberg picked up a few points from the hours of presentations at WWDC this week and figured out why it had to make more sense for Apple to port over Apple Music to Android, but not iMessage. One executive told Mossberg that the company has a user base totaling a billion, which should be enough to help better its artificial intelligence engines. We don't particularly see a competition for the best artificial intelligence out there since everyone is building code and algorithms for their own ...

    In the beta out for iOS 10, there's a change to the platform's operating procedure that may have you scratching your head just a bit. We are closing in on ten years of the whole "Slide to Unlock" paradigm where you would pull a tab across the bottom of the screen to access your home screen or your security measure. Touch ID complicated things with an almost-instant touch-to-sensor unlock. Nowadays on the iOS 10 developer preview, if you pick up your iPhone to check the lockscreen, you're prompted to "Press home to unlock". Furthermore, as BGR points out, if you just place your finger ...

    Apple's WWDC 2016 brought us -- among other things like a new watchOS (version 3), tvOS, and macOS Sierra -- the next generation of Apple's operating system for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod: iOS 10. The presentation showed off ten upcoming features of the new platform revamp, ranging from user interface and experience to specific features and overhauls, like Home, Messages, Photos, Music, and more. As usual, Apple already made iOS 10 available to developers as an early beta, and we had to take it for a spin. As with every early stage software, there are bugs to  be ironed out and glitches ...

    Ten big updates were announced for iOS during WWDC 2016, and 3D Touch was featured prominently for several demonstrations. Apple's focus on streamlining UI navigation will rely heavily on integrating services within other apps, and providing users quick snippets and "at-a-glance" interactions. On the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, users can already "peek and pop" through specific services like the mail app. This feature is dependent on specific hardware requirements, namely the pressure sensitive screen on the current flagship iPhones, so user adoption is limited to only the most expensive current ...

    When you buy a phone, mission one for the thing is to communicate. And with new features tacked onto the calls side and the iMessage side, we have plenty of communication going on. New APIs for the call experience on iOS 10 can integrate plenty of neat-o features like voicemail transcription and enhanced identification of spam calls with third-party extensions (like through Tencent). If you have an iPhone for work, you can also route your personal iPhone calls through that work device. Messages got a whole bunch of enhancements, starting with rich links that implements in-line video play. ...

    If you've ever been to an Apple Store, you might have been greeted by an employee wearing a blue T-shirt with an Apple logo stuck on the top right. That's a frighteningly simple uniform to replicate. And someone allegedly did so to get to the back of the SoHo Apple Store in New York. On June 1, a man suspected to have been wearing something like the uniform took 19 iPhones from the repairs room and handed them over to a regularly-dressed co-conspirator who nested them inside his shirt. Both then walked out of the store with a $16,130 haul. NYPD is investigating. The department and Apple ...

    Some people want to watch the world burn. Those are the same people that run Windows 95 on an Apple Watch. Now, app developing firm Tendigi is back at it once again and it is going for the holy grail of crossing mobile platforms: running Android on an iPhone. And Tendigi was successful! Well, with the help of a bit of mass. And another machine it had to build from scratch. And a little engineering. And ... well, just watch the video and read on. In a Medium post, CTO Nick Lee explained that he only had to do a little DIY to get a encased subdevice running Android to seep into an iPhone. ...

    If you haven't had your fill of patent lawsuits last week, check out what the California Institute of Technology is filing against One Infinite Loop. Caltech hit Apple with the suit on Thursday for infringing upon its Wi-Fi patents. The university is alleging that its intellectual property was crucial to the 802.11n and 802.11ac standards and that every iPhone from the iPhone 5. Apple's Wi-Fi chip supplier, Broadcom, is actually the main plaintiff in the suit, but since Apple commands about 14 percent of its business, Caltech believes Cupertino is fair game. The Wi-Fi chips aren't the ...

    The most profitable company on the face of the earth is confronted with a nearly unprecedented rough patch, as mobile device sales in general and iPhone demand in particular appears to dwindle, especially on the Western hemisphere. China and India could come to Apple’s rescue, at least until the radically redesigned AMOLED iPhone 7s of next year enters the picture, but as long as Tim Cook refuses to "lower the quality bar" and pander to budget-conscious audiences, share in the world’s two largest markets is unlikely to dramatically build up. Cupertino won’t be allowed favorable legal ...

    Three countries in Europe are now "trading up with installments" with anticipation that more will be on the way. Apple's new combined trade-in and financing program is no longer exclusive to the US — if only for a limited time. France, Italy and Spain are the latest territories to roll-out the scheme, all with the same promise: give your working iPhone (4s or later) in good condition and you'll pay less for an iPhone SE, iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus over 24 months. Unlike the US version of the program that is backed by Citizens One Financing, there's interest on these programs. Over in ...

That's why companies like Facebook and Google have been offering up speedy-loading optimizations to content providers — with a share of the click revenue, of course. Google has been keeping its Accelerated Mobile Pages to Android users, but not anymore — version 15.1 of its iOS search app now has it. Users just need to look out for that lightning bolt next certain "top stories" to get informed instantly. Google Now cards also serve up sports highlight videos, too. Restaurant entries get a ...

    It’s not only China that should make Apple investors nervous on the heels of a steep Q1 decline in global iPhone sales, as the world’s most profitable corporation seems to have little room for growth in many Western markets as well, while a few emerging ones aren’t warming up to costly iDevices yet. India in particular feels like a major concern for CEO Tim Cook, who visited the country for the first time last week to chiefly try to persuade Prime Minister Narendra Modi into giving refurbished iPhones his blessing. That reportedly didn’t work out so well, as the Indian government ...

    If “Lying Ted” or “Little Marco” were still in the Presidential race, or “Crooked Hillary” would stoop to the same low blow name-calling tactics as her presumptive opponent from the other side of the aisle, Trump’s recent disclosure of financial investments would provide so much ammo for such an easy derogatory label. Something short and punchy, like maybe “Two-Face Donald” or just “Hypocritical Donald.” Granted, the controversial businessman was heard giving contradictory statements on many delicate issues these past few months, ranging from immigration to foreign ...

    Catcher Technology — the metal casing manufacturer that designs and produces (and leaks) Apple's chassis for its iPhones — does not believe it will be losing business with its biggest customer based on what that client will release next year. The Taiwan-based company's chairman and CEO, Allen Horng, said that he knows of only one all-glass iPhone that will be released in 2017. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo fom KGI previously predicted an all-glass iPhone to come next year. Biel Crystal Manufactory and Lens Technology out of China is said to be in charge of handling the glass casings for ...
