    Apple isn't really one of those companies that likes to admit defeat, but we could say that the iPhone 5c is an exception. We remember how Tim Cook admitted that the iPhone 5c didn't meet sales expectations last year, and we also know that Apple sat on a ton of inventory early in the sales period of this device's launch. It's safe to assume that Apple still has too much inventory to admit to, as reports already predict its end of life. Taiwan's Industrial and Commercial Times is already stating that Apple will end production of the iPhone 5c by the middle of 2015. The argument is mainly ...

    The fact that we see iPhones in the hands of most people in the US and Europe shows us just how well Apple has saturated both markets. There is still room for growth, but it's significantly smaller than the amount of opportunity that Apple has in Asia, and we've seen the company make significant changes in order to cater to Chinese specifically, but now it wants more. Apple's new strategy is focused on Vietnam, as the company is partnering with more companies in order to achieve better market penetration. Bloomberg reports that people crave iPhones in Vietnam, and in order to reach a ...

    Summer can be expensive: all those tankfuls of gas for road trips to the beach, tickets to the latest blockbuster movie, and you probably don't even want to look at what that A/C is costing you to keep cool. If you're trying to keep a handle on spending, though, that doesn't mean you have to pass up on some of the hottest smartphones and their accessories, and today we've spotted a couple solid deals that should help your summer dollar stretch a little farther. Apple's iPhone pricing has been notorious for its resistance to discounts. That's not to say that we don't see them, but while ...

    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 ...

    The iPhone 5C is Apple's effort to get a current-gen (or very nearly, at least) smartphone into the hands of shoppers who might otherwise have their eyes on a discounted older model, and already we've seen efforts to lower the bar of entry even further: earlier this year, Apple introduced a new 8GB version of the 5C, priced to be even more affordable than the previous 16GB option. Apple fans in Europe and China have already had the chance to grab the 8GB 5C, and this week we learn of Apple's plans to make the phone available to even more shoppers, with word that the 8GB 5C is coming to ...

    Though the iPhone 6 is fairly close to us at this point in time, the current-gen offerings are by no means bad phones. If you have an old iPhone and are looking to grab yourself an upgrade, be sure to take a glance at Best Buy's latest deal. It is offering up to $200 in trade-in credit for old iPhones, toward the purchase of an iPhone 5s or 5c. If you trade in a working iPhone 5, you'll get a $200 gift card guaranteed, which should net you an on-contract 16GB 5s for free on either AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. For a 4s, it's the same deal, but you'll get $150 instead, and this means that ...

    Smartphone manufacturers have turned it up to 11 this year. For many, it's do or die. Take HTC for example. Its sales, revenues, market share, and mind share have all been consistently dwindling over the last several years. Even while the company has remained relevant and maintained its habit of creating spectacular, beautiful, competitive devices, its stance in the market, particularly in comparison to Samsung and Apple, is paltry. And despite bringing home handfuls of awards with the One (M7), little has changed for the company. Granted, HTC has the means of keeping its business afloat ...

    Apple's launch of the iPhone 5c has been met with some very interesting results. The company has been stuck with millions of units in stores and in factories, and as a countermeasure to this overstock, the company has decided to sell a, dare we say "cheaper", iPhone 5c with just 8GB of storage in certain markets. You'd think that coming from a company like Apple, this was the move it had to make to have these sell, but you won't be surprised at the results. The company has just launched the 8GB iPhone 5c in additional countries, the list including: Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, ...

    Apple's launch of CarPlay came with a couple of basic complications, mainly because the launch didn't include any vehicle that actually supports it. With Car manufacturers launching compatible models until later this year, it's hard to see a mainstream adoption of the service if you have to purchase a new vehicle to enjoy it. Luckily manufacturers like Pioneer are looking to solve this problem for many of us that don't plan to buy a new car, and the company has just made its launch plans official. Pioneer has just announced that it'll provide a firmware update to its existing line-up of ...

    iPhone deals are odd at this time of year, and that's mainly because Apple is not open to discounting anything. It's common to see this happen close to an iPhone announcement, but we don't expect the next-generation iPhone to launch until June. The cool thing is that there are companies out there that don't mind daring Apple's mentality every now and then, and there are some sweet iPhone deals from Virgin Mobile today. Right now you can get the 16GB iPhone 5s for $385, the 32GB model for $455, and the 64GB model for $525, which is insane, and specially in that 64GB model, which usually ...

    Apple has been doing some really odd things lately, and it mainly has to do with its product portfolio. For those of you that thought that the iPhone 4 was discontinued this year, well that's not entirely accurate as it still lives somewhere in India. One of the oddest products to have continued on its stores as well was the iPad 2 after more than 3 years in the market, but that was easily topped today by some "new" product launches. First of all, Apple has decided to discontinue the iPad 2 and bring back the iPad 4 from the dead, as we saw some rumors yesterday. We all assumed that the ...

    As much as Apple wanted to sell us its "beautifully-unapologetically plastic" iPhone 5c, it seems the world preferred the apology. The company hasn't been specific as to how many iPhone 5c units it has sold, which definitely means that it hasn't lived-up to Cupertino's expectations. We recently heard that Apple had as many as 3 million units in storage, and now we're hearing of how it plans to get rid of them. According to a leaked document at O2 Germany, Apple is planning to launch an iPhone 5c with only 8GB of storage, and 60 Euros cheaper than the current iPhone 5c. It's hard to tell ...

    The All New HTC One won't grace us with its presence until the end of the month, and at this point we're beginning to wonder if HTC will have anything left to reveal at the announcement. From a sales guide to promotional materials to yet another undercover hands-on video, the leaks surrounding one of the year's most anticipated Android handsets refuse to let up – and we're here to talk about them in our latest pre-#ANHO podcast! Before that, of course, we've got the usual news of the week, including a duo of Samsung tablet reviews, rampant speculation about a brick-and-mortar Google ...

    "What would you say to the people who think that what you do is illegal?" " ... I would tell them that I don't want to answer this question." When you're interviewing the world's most notorious phone leaker, he's bound to duck a question or two. But cautious though he is, Evan Blass –formerly of Pocketnow and currently known across the web by his pen name @evleaks– is also a fountain of insight into the shadowy craft of being a professional spoiler. On today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, Evan shares the ups and downs of the underworld he's come to dominate, and gives us a glimpse ...
