    Apple hasn't really been doing the best job in having enough iPhone 5S' to satisfy demand, and on the other hand, they're overstocked of all the iPhone 5C units that they haven't been able to sell. While the excessive demand of their higher-end model is normal, this hasn't stopped the Cupertino kids from expanding the demand of their iPhone internationally, and notice I say demand and not sales, and now it seems that the time has come for other US carriers. As of November 8th you can choose to join the list of people that will have to wait for the iPhone 5S at US Cellular, or you could ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand. We’d like to thank you all for participating in our question of the day, and we love your feedback so much, that we decided that since we can’t respond to ever single one of your comments, we should at least feature a couple in a weekly video. This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of ...

    Some interesting news have just happened, as the US Patent office has decided to uphold the patent No. 7,479,949 after pretty much invalidating it in December of 2012. Why is this important? Well if we all remember the Apple vs Samsung trial, among other lawsuits that included Palm and HTC, Apple has actually won cases against Samsung because of this particular patent, and it has been key in banning Samsung products years ago. This patent focuses on the iPhone's capability to ignore unintended swipes while you scroll from top to bottom or left to right. You'll notice that if you start ...

    Everyone looks for different things in a smartphone. Maybe you care about high-speed data, while your friend might be more concerned with the availability of certain key apps. That makes it difficult to give one-size-fits-all opinions on phones, but we sure endeavor to do our best, particularly through our Scored for Me matrix. But even with all these differences of opinion, we still expect certain trends to show through: no one's going to argue that the LG Optimus F5 is the superior phone to the G2, for instance. That's why Consumer Reports is getting a lot of attention this week, after ...

    Apple's iPhone 5C is basically last year's iPhone 5, in a plastic casing, instead of the high-quality aluminum body you are by now used to; that's not to say the iPhone 5C is not premium: it's just aluminum vs this year's plastic. Compared to the iPhone 5S, this year's flagship, the 5C is "the lower end phone", and that, according to reports, reflect in poorer sales. The Wall Street Journal report is citing anonymous sources and "people familiar with the matters", claiming that Apple has allegedly contacted its suppliers with smaller orders and subsequently, a reduction of these, for the ...

    Going in to this year's iPhone launch, it was sounding like the more affordable iPhone 5C might be the big winner. While it's basically last year's hardware, stock problems with the 5S made the 5C a lot more accessible, and it seemed like plenty of people would be snatching them up, just to get their hands on a new iPhone – any new iPhone. But now as Apple gets production more in line with demand and readies to make its new iPhones available to shoppers in dozens of additional countries, is it already seeing a decline in interest in the iPhone 5C? That's what one rumor suggests, claiming ...

    More than 25 countries is what Apple adds to the list of markets where the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be available starting October 25. Furthermore, starting November 1, that list grows by an additional number of at least a doze, according to the press release. Currently, the two phones are only available, officially, in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK. The October 25 markets are: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, French West Indies, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, ...

    When Michael told me he was looking forward to reviewing the iPhone 5C, I frankly got exited with him. He's always been a fan of "the underdog" platforms, and if we all remember, that's precisely what iPhones were back in 2007. Obviously times have changed dramatically even for Apple's own estimates, and I guess that's just another one of the reasons why he feels that the iPhone is just not for him after he finished his review. Now, one of the coolest things about us in Pocketnow, is that we all come from dramatically different backgrounds, we live in very different places, and we're also ...

    The mobile space is full of profound juxtapositions this week as Apple can't make enough iPhones to meet demand, while BlackBerry can't keep its head above water long enough to sell existing stock. Meanwhile, Microsoft announces its second round of Surface products, while soon to be-acquired hardware maker Nokia (allegedly) prepares its own Windows tablet - and the horrible marriage of smartphone maker HTC and audio baron Beats finally, mercifully, dissolves. That's the big news for the week ending September 27, 2013, and all of it -plus iOS 7 literally making people sick- awaits you in ...

    iOS 7.0.2 rolling out as we speak and, while it is not a large file, it sure brings some relief to those that were worried about security. The new, minor update though, is fixing a bug "that could allow someone to bypass the Lock screen passcode". If you live in Greece, you will now have the option to input your passcode with the Greek keyboard. The patch weighs anywhere between 18 and 21MB and is available both over-the-air, as well as using Apple's all-in-one application, iTunes. Given the severity and importance of the topic at hand, we recommend you update as soon as possible!

    For the first time in its history, "the new iPhone" is not a single device. It's a one-two punch comprising the iPhone 5s and the midrange iPhone 5c, the phones separated by a small gap in functionality and a huge gulf in aesthetics. Whereas the "deluxe model" packs new features like an improved camera, fingerprint scanner, and 64-bit processor, the more humble iPhone 5c offers almost nothing to set it apart from last year's iPhone 5 on the spec sheet. But Apple has never been one to cater to the specification seekers. Instead, the iPhone 5c seems squarely aimed at the kind of customers ...

    As listeners of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast will recall, it's been a while since I owned an iPhone. A long while, in fact: the last time I used an Apple handheld as my personal smartphone, the year was 2008 and the device was an iPhone 3G. That was the first phone I'd ever waited in line for, and it was supposed to be the last. At the time, I saw the switch to iPhone as an opportunity to rid myself of the crushing device-buying habit that had been draining my pockets ever since I bought my first cellphone. The iPhone could do so much, and do it so well, that it was the perfect product to ...

    The iPhone 5s may be getting all the attention these days, but there's a bevy of multicolored iPhones that deserve some words of their own. Fortunately, we're dedicated wordsmiths around these parts, and we're pretty keen on comparison videos as well. We unboxed the iPhone 5c last week, and in the midst of flying bubble-wrap and packing tape torn asunder, we promised a followup series of features and reviews. While the latter segment is still being worked on, we've already managed to churn out a few comparisons, and you're looking at the latest of the bunch. Besides the manifold salient ...
