    It's not just new iPad shots we've got for you tonight, and in addition to those leaks of possible iPad Air 2 imagery, some new renders of the iPhone 6 have come to our attention, giving us a little preview of what we might hope to expect from Apple's design. Keep in mind, these aren't purporting to be anything official, and are instead fan renders put together based upon much of the iPhone 6 information that's surfaced in previous leaks and rumors. That includes things like those recent shots of iPhone cases showing Apple moving the phone's power button from its top edge to one side, as ...

    Skipping listener mail for two weeks in a row? We know, we know ... unconscionable. But we also know you'll forgive us in exchange for two things: a packed review schedule, and an awesome podcast guest. We're bringing you both of those as the week winds down to a close. In addition to the usual news segment narrated by the soothing voice of Chief News Editor Stephen Schenck, we've got additional insights on Samsung's new Galaxy S5: how it compares to its forebears, how well it fares against competition like the HTC One M8, and a debate on the merits of standout features like the ...

    Last Friday we got a look at an image of what were supposed to be cases for Apple's new iPhone 6 designs, and they suggested that beyond simply getting larger, the handsets might take the liberty to reposition some of their hardware. Specifically, we saw signs that could be interpreted as Apple moving the phone's sleep/power button from the top edge to along the side, possibly as a concession to one-handed usage with these larger form factors. But despite that addition of a new button cutout, the old top-edge cutout was still in place. Which was it gonna be? Today some new pics attempt to ...

    We've got a ton of conflicting rumors regarding the possible launch timing of the next-generation iPhone. Some predict that the launch will be happening in the fall of 2014, and others still assume that it'll happen at WWDC 2014. With all the pressure surrounding the iPhone at the moment from the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8, it's clear that Apple needs to pull something up its sleeve as early as possible, and some leaks show that it might be happening. We apparently get the first leaked photos of the display of the iPhone 6, and this time it seems to be the 4.7-inch variant. In ...

    Even though we're still months away from the probable launch of the iPhone 6, we all know the way case makers operate. Somehow these companies manage to get their hands on the official designs of the phone and start producing cases like crazy. Case makers haven't always gotten it right, but most of the time they have, and they're at it again with the iPhone 6. We've come across some dubious images of a transparent case that could be for the iPhone 6 phablet, alongside the 4.7-inch model. You'll notice that the power button is now placed to one side, opposite to the volume buttons, but the ...

    Apple is expected to not only redesign the iPhone this year, but rumors point to the company working on more than one device in order to satisfy the demand of those that want a bigger phone. Since some people value one-handed usability and others don't, reports have that Apple will bring a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch iPhone to the table this year. There are conflicting rumors on the launch date for these phones, but new predictions point to what we should expect from hardware. KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo predicts that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will sport a 1334x750 Retina display at 326 ...

    Rumors couldn't be more conflicting when it comes to Apple's next-generation iPhone 6. While we continue to hear consistencies in the fact that there are two iPhone models in the works, a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a 5.5-inch phablet, we keep finding inconsistencies in the dates. We've heard past rumors of the 4.7-inch model being ready for the market after WWDC, but new reports claim otherwise. New reports from Japanese sources claim that the two rumored iPhone 6 models will be launched separately, and definitely not in time for WWDC. Apparently the 4.7-inch model will be launched first, but ...

    Concept designs are hard to follow, as they are usually just the ideal that a designer has of how a device should look. What's cool about the iPhone 6 is that with the leaked schematics that were discovered a couple of weeks ago, we've landed some interesting designs that are fully based on factual data, and that could lead to a clear idea of what to expect. Obviously these designs could be based on prototype data and not the actual iPhone 6, so we can't say we fully trust what we see. In this particular case, MacRumors commissioned designer Ferry Passchier to create some full product ...

    Even though we're still a couple of months away from Apple's WWDC 2014 event, there's a high level of certainty that we'll see the company's latest version of iOS being announced. It's hard to know if it'll be dubbed iOS 8, as we've seen cases like iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2, where we never really saw a push beyond the same number during the whole year. Let's just continue calling it iOS 8 until Apple says otherwise at the event, as we have more details on what to expect. Apparently iOS 8 is known as codename "Okemo" inside of Apple's premises. The new set of rumors continue to point to Apple ...

    We know that Apple wasn't the first to explore capacitive touch screens, but the iPhone did make the technology popular. Over the last couple of years, the iPhone's multi-touch technology has pioneered a new trend of ways to interact with mobile devices, up to the point of including computers as well. Obviously Apple hasn't stopped there, and a new patent reveals where the company wants to push next. Apple's new patent shows how the company is exploring the use if infrared technology in order to determine pressure sensitivity. This would allow a new trend of commands, where the device will ...

    Apple's World Wide Developer Conference is probably the biggest event that the company hosts every year. During the event, those lucky developers that can get a ticket have the opportunity to work directly with Apple on ways to improve their applications. It's also the event where Steve Jobs has announced devices like the iPhone 4, and where we expect to see something great this year as well. Apple has just announced that the event starts on June 2nd, and that it'll go through June 6th. Historically, the first day is used for Tim Cook's keynote, and just like we saw iOS 7 last year, and ...

    With Apple's possible launch of the iPhone 6, we've seen leaked images that show a device with a protruding camera lens, just as we see today with the iPod Touch. We know that Apple has a lot of pressure to innovate in its camera offering, and there have been ongoing leaks about the possibility of optical image stabilization, and even Apple's decision to ditch the idea. It's hard to tell if the next generation iPhone will include any of this, but one of the older patents we saw last month has resurfaced. We saw earlier how Apple is experimenting in using magnetic interchangeable lenses, ...
