    This is probably not the best time to get an iPhone, since we're probably just a month or two away from Apple's next generation smartphone. That said, if you're in urgent need to get one, that doesn't mean that devices like the iPhone 4S won't remain relevant for at least another year or two. As carriers begin doing their best to boost sales during the slowest season of the year, Sprint took the lead by dropping as much as $86 from any iPhone that you purchase in their network after a two-year contract. That involves dropping $50 off the price tag, and then waving the $36 activation fee. ...

    iOS6 will bring a lot of new features (despite the fact that many are expecting a brand new user interface), at least from what Apple have shown and told us. Of course, there might be some more exciting stuff being held from us in order to show off with the occasion of the iPhone event. However, Apple introduced a nice little feature in the Mail app, as spotted by BGR. If you conversation view (thread) is getting too long, you have to pull in order to expand the collapsed email and it will display more. In order to visualize this, check out the image above. It's pretty much similar to ...

    Despite the fact that the numbers are looking really good, Apple's financial results for the second quarter of 2012 fall short of some expectations mainly because of speed bumps in the European economy as well as slightly worse iPhone sales. The fruit company managed to sell 26 million iPhones and 17 million iPads in Q2. However, iPhone sales are lower than expected and, according to the company, rumors of the next iPhone are hurting smartphone sales. The same thing happened last year with the iPhone 4 where many future owners refrained from purchasing one on the eve of the iPhone 4S ...

    Those running the third beta of iOS 6 noticed that Apple will make it easier to update applications and install free ones by removing an extra step necessary in the current iteration of the platform. Passwords will no longer be required for installation of free applications. The user will also no longer be required to enter their iTunes password when updating an application already installed, regardless if it is free or purchased/commercial. Currently the system is asking you for authentication but in iOS 6, whenever tapping a free product in the AppStore in order to install it, the button ...

    There are quite a lot of people who like to combine the best of both worlds and using Gmail on your iOS-powered device, let it be iPhone or iPad, is just one example. However, the Gmail app for iOS is lacking functionality compared to the Android flavor but there's an update available in the App Store that tries to close the gap. Probably the most important addition is Notification Center support with options for banners, alerts and lock screen notifications. You no longer have to open the application to check for e-mails, you can finally be notified if you have one right on your lock ...

    There's a lot to celebrate about iOS 6. Brandon's recent editorial highlights the top 5 features we found most interesting, but after testing the first beta just a couple of days later, not everything has been fun and games. I could certainly add a ton of additional reasons why I consider that the OS matters, but today, it's time to talk about the five reasons why I'm disappointed. Let’s start this list with a disclaimer though. There's nothing in these five disappointments that considers iOS either superior or inferior to other platforms. There's no such thing as a perfect operating ...

    One of the exciting features brought by iCloud and iOS 5 last year were the Photo Stream which instantly uploaded (if on WiFI) images snapped on one device -- like the iPhone -- and made them available on another device -- like a tablet or a computer. Dropbox for Android was already able to upload camera pictures to your account but now, with the same functionality coming to iOS, Photo Stream is getting some steam. You can enable or disable the automatic upload of camera shots as well as toggle whether you want to use WiFi, data, or both. Images uploaded will be available on the web as ...

    One of the top five Apple iOS 6 features is the new and improved Maps, which contains a neat little feature called Flyover. The company is no longer using Google as the main source of placing you on the map and has turned to another company to deliver cartography for basic mapping and turn-by-turn solution. According to TomTom, the company "has signed a global agreement with Apple for maps and related information". No further details have been made public but this will probably change (or not) once iOS 6 is ready for the public. For now, it is worth noting -- in case you were wondering ...

    For as exciting as Apple's new software announcements can be, whenever one comes around it's always a harrowing moment for users of older hardware, wondering if their devices will make the cut this time around, or if they're finally going to be left by the wayside. With iOS 6, the upgrade situation looked pretty promising at first, with the only big loser being the original iPad. Now that we're beginning to learn additional information about the company's apps, some new limitations are coming light, and spelling bad news for owners of even more hardware. The new Maps is going to be a major ...

    Cricket is set to introduce the US to prepaid iPhone service later this month, and we've heard rumors about the possibility for Boost Mobile to offer similar service in a few months, possibly during September. According to the Wall Street Journal, they're not the only outfits in town with an eye on the iPhone, and Virgin Mobile could be next to add a prepaid iPhone to its stable, as soon as next month. Just like the other prepaid iPhone options, a Virgin Mobile iPhone sounds attractive due to the carrier's affordable monthly plans. With an on-contract iPhone, the absolute lowest bill you ...

    Just yesterday, we learned of Cricket's plans to begin offering the iPhone 4 and 4S on its prepaid network, giving Apple fans in the States an opportunity to save what could be some pretty substantial bank on their monthly service costs. This sounded like a great opportunity for customers, and an especially good fit for the iPhone, as Apple users are already used to paying a bit of premium for the company's gear, making the higher upfront cost for off-contract phone hardware a little easier to bear. Cricket's hardly the only prepaid game in town, though, so what about the other carriers? A ...

    Pick up an on-contract iPhone in the US and you're looking to pay, minimum, $60 a month for service, and that's without SMS and only 300MB data. If you wanted unlimited service, voice, SMS, and data included, you'll be paying Sprint about $110 a month, which quickly starts adding up. If you don't mind shelling-out a little more up front, though, Cricket will soon offer the iPhone on its prepaid plans, bundling everything together for just $55 a month. Now, to be fair, Cricket's "unlimited" data isn't quite that, with throttling past the 2.3GB "fair use" threshold. Even with that in mind, ...

    Those who prefer Android and who also use the Amazon Appstore are familiar with the giant's free "app of the day" offering where they give away paid applications for free every day. It looks like those who prefer Apple's products will also benefit from something similar, or at least that's what we think (hope) after seeing one of App Store's tweets. The tweet itself is pretty self explanatory and even uses the #FreeAppoftheWeek hashtag. Cut the Rope: Experiments seems to be given away for free as part of the program and there's also a huge "App of the Week" banner on the iTunes pages for ...

    Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero was appointed to oversee settlement talks between Apple and Samsung -- ordered by Judge Lucy Koh from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California -- over the course of two days on Monday and Tuesday, May 21 and 22. This might come as no surprise to you but the two giants have not reached an agreement, according to reports. Samsung's CEO Choi Gee-sung and Head of the firm’s Mobile Division, Shin Jong-kyun, were present at the meeting on behalf of the South Korean manufacturer and Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, represented the ...
