    Sprint and T-Mobile are offering free 32GB iPhone 7 devices with the trade-in of an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s. These promotions don't really help out those with the Plus models looking for a way to upgrade and they certainly take a bite out of perpetual iPhone lease-to-upgrade programs. But at least we can say that everyone, including Verizon, is trying. Its offer? A free 32GB iPhone 7 for your working and decent looking iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. Yep, the 5.5-inch models are on the table for up to a $650 credit. Keep in mind that trade-ins are usually limited to ...

    More from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo as we've heard from him about iPhones old and small in investment note after investment note. This one follows on from a previous note talking about the 2017 iPhone, whatever it will happen to be called. Kuo is following up on a branch he left concerning the main build material for that iPhone. Would it be ceramic? Plastic? Glass and metal? How about glass and glass? All-glass, even, as the analyst believes that the competition is aluminium-saturated at this point and that Apple will look to diverge from the pack it has been settling into and ...

    Apple is offering more people another way to pay for that new iPhone that they've been thinking about getting, but can't afford to tank their bank accounts to attain.

    A time not too far into the past, Apple's mobile products were the gold standard of the industry. The iPhone dictated the direction of the coming year, and it was one of the few smartphones with incredible design and a consistent and reliable user experience. Further, tablet-optimized applications were made almost solely for Apple's iPad. However, Apple has been slow to update its software, hardware innovation has almost slowed to a crawl, and other OEMs are closing the gap in many areas – tablet market share, tablet-optimized apps, and even customer satisfaction. Apple got comfortable. ...

    A couple months back, we heard about a problem Nokia was facing with the chargers for the Lumia 2520, as they were released in certain European nations. The company identified a small but nonetheless present risk that users might inadvertently end up shocking themselves while inserting or removing the plug, and subsequently halted sales and got busy exchanging defective models. This week, a very similar story is unfolding for Apple, as it faces its own issues with faulty chargers in the EU. The good news for Apple is that it's not dealing with a current product like Nokia was; this alert ...

    Even though we're just a couple of weeks away from Apple's probable launch of iOS 8 at WWDC 2014, that doesn't mean that the Jailbreak community hasn't been hard at work at doing something about iOS 7.1.1. Ever since the launch of Apple's current mobile operating system, it wasn't possible for you to Jailbreak it through conventional and easy means. Today we do see some significant progress in the matter, but not necessarily for everyone. Today we've seen both photos and videos of iOS 7.1.1 being jailbroken on devices like the iPhone 5c and even the iPhone 4. iOS security researcher i0n1c ...

    If you have an Apple iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S, chances are you're waiting for the iPhone 6 to come out, as you've probably skipped both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. If you have a Galaxy S II from Samsung, you should be excited about the MWC Unpacked event where the S 5 might land, as you apparently skipped the S III and S 4. However, Microsoft wants to take advantage of your hesitation and has an offer which you should definitely consider if you are willing to give Windows Phone, and its surrounding ecosystem, a chance. If you trade in your iPhone 4, iPhone 4s or Galaxy S2, you can get a ...

    Apple appears to have re-launched the iPhone 4 in India, according to a recent India Times report. Apparently, iPhone sales have plummeted following the introduction of the latest models, the iPhone 5S, and the iPhone 5C, which are being referred to by India Times, as overpriced. Additionally, Apple retired the iPhone 5 from the market, leaving future possible owners no choice for a lower-end/budget iPhone. However, it appears that the iPhone 4 is back in the game, but at an "almost robbery" price of Rs23,000, which translates to roughly $375, as referred to in the report. The ...

    You'd think that Apple and Samsung will someday stop all the fighting and hatred, and specially given the fact that both these companies are such great partners when it comes to delivering the iPhones that many of us use, but who knows if that'll ever change. We all know that Samsung had requested a ban on the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 recently through the ITC because of certain patent infringements, which the ITC did find Apple guilty of. The sentence would require Apple to halt the sales of any iOS product that came before the iPhone 4S or iPad with Retina Display, which at the moment are the ...

    Since the iPhone 4, iPhones in general are regarded as having some of the best, if not the best, smartphone cameras around. Sure, the Lumia 920 from Nokia has optical image stabilization, so it performs better in low-light. And some newer phones have 13-megapixel sensors, meaning they produce larger images. But the iPhone has a way of almost always capturing great, balanced photos. But some photos simply need some touching-up, some post-processing to turn an okay photo into something much more dramatic or moving. The built-in Photos application has some lightweight tools for editing ...

    It's almost hard to believe that the saga of Apple's questionable antenna design for the iPhone 4 continues to play out to this day, coming up on three years since the smartphone launched and "Antennagate" began. The final chapter is now being written, upon settlement checks going out to users who opted to take Apple up on its offer for $15. Last February brought us news of the settlement Apple came to after the numerous Antennagate lawsuits were combined into one class action suit. If you had an iPhone 4 that was suffering from reception issues and weren't interested in outfitting your ...

    Unless we're talking about hands-free voice commands, using your smartphone while driving is just an accident waiting to happen. We can tell people not to do it, and warn them of the risks, but in the end it's up to drivers themselves to resist the temptation to check their Twitter feed while speeding down the highway. One company has devised a system that might be able to force even the most phone-crazy drivers to put their handsets down when behind the wheel, but we wonder if it isn't just a bit overkill. Origo forces drivers to dock their phones, with their screens facing away, before ...

    T-Mobile finally gets an iPhone of its own this Friday, letting Apple fans enjoy the full speeds of the carrier's network for the first time ever. As such, T-Mobile is really invested in making this launch a big success, and that means showing the other carriers that, even late to the table, it can still sell a whole mess of iPhones. To help draw customers, it's offering a trade-in deal for previous iPhone owners, but is this promotion really a good deal? Normally, the 16GB iPhone 5 for T-Mobile will run you $100 outright, and demand monthly $20 payments for two years. If you trade-in an ...

    With close to 2,000 stores in the US and Canada, Staples is one large office supply chain store which definitely needs no introduction if you live in one of the 26 countries worldwide in which it is present, including the USA. In Canada you are already able to purchase Apple products from Staples and it looks like the US is not far away with that either. Apple might be expanding its US distribution with the addition of Staples, even though neither company officially confirmed the report. However, Staples employees took the news to their Twitter accounts: Regis Mulot, SVP of Global Human ...

    If you compare today's smartphones with the best handsets offered four or five years ago, it's truly astounding how far everything has come. Yesterday, I briefly explained in an editorial about a rumored Ultrapixel camera that mobile hardware and performance have began to transcend the boundaries of the limitations often associated with mobile technology. Rarely, however, do we stop and think about how powerful our pocket-sized computers truly are. But with mobile processors clocked at speeds that rival some full-fledged computers and featuring anywhere from two to eight cores, pinhole ...

    We've all been there. You pull your phone out of your pocket and notice something is off. Slide past the lock screen and you notice that, for whatever reason, your phone is back to factory settings. (For the record, I have had this happen with every mobile OS I have used to date.) Or maybe you have lost a phone. Having to go through the motions to get your phone back to how it should be is never a fun process. It's time consuming, and sometimes important information is gone forever, irrecoverable. Fortunately, there is a solution – precautionary steps that prevent sensitive or important ...
