    After a very dramatic end to the relationship between Apple and GT Advanced, you'd think that the whole sapphire project came to an abrupt end. In a way it did, or at least for this year, since we don't really have any Apple product sporting the new display technology that we showed you months ago. That said, Apple has already shown the world that the Apple Watch will sport sapphire in its entry video, and it seems the supplier has just emerged. If you remember, we recently talked about this new $2.6 billion display factory that Foxconn is currently building through its subsidiary InnoLux. ...

    Apple has broken a significant amount of records since the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. We saw how the company sold its fare share of phones in just the first few days of the launch, and obviously this leap also includes an extra share of growth for the company in its services. Apple may not be too happy with its current iTunes performance, but the App Store shows a different story. We still don't have any official data from Apple, but App marketing firm Fiksu has just revealed its numbers for the last couple of months. According to the study conducted through October on the ...

    Even though Apple has never been a fan of the existing Android spec race, that doesn't mean that the company hasn't done its fare share of innovation in hardware with every existing iPhone. The iPhone 5s became famous for sporting the first 64-bit mobile processor, and that legacy has continued with the iPhone 6 and its new A8 chip. What's interesting is that we keep discovering that the processor has more capabilities than those marketed by Apple. The developers of WALTR, an app that allows Mac users to upload and view video files that aren't supported by iOS devices, have discovered that ...

    Recently, I got to try out a prototype of a new product that brings a virtual reality platform to the iPhone 6 and 6+. Pinć is a new device and platform from Cordon Media; a company with experience in building software interfaces for large wall-sized screens, but that doesn't really work on small smartphone screens... unless you turn them into virtual reality goggles. We've already seen Samsung try something like this with their new Gear VR product which can turn the Galaxy Note 4 into an Oculus Rift style portable virtual reality headset. I also got to use that one for a bit, and you ...

    With autumn very much making its presence felt, and the last days of 2014 looming ahead, the mobile electronics market is about to make another of its regular shifts, temporarily moving away from a time dominated by launch after launch, and instead focusing more on getting these products into our hands. We've just come off a couple big months of launches, led in by IFA in early September, and peppered with iPhone, iPad, and Nexus announcements in the weeks that followed. But now with the holiday season arriving as an unavoidable juggernaut, we're about to see the steady flow of new devices ...

    If you're living in the US, we're sure you're already seeing a fair share of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units on the street. Apple has broken a couple of records in sales when it comes to its new smartphone lineup, and that's just after a couple of weeks in the market. If you're wondering which of the two iPhones is selling more, well, analysts seem to have that figure down for you. Apple is sadly never clear about how many models of a specific iPhone have sold in a quarter. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners has recently done a study over the last 30 days and it has noticed that 68% ...

    Many boast that Apple's support for legacy devices is better than its competitors, and in a way, we could say that is true. You can walk into any Apple Store and notice customers still getting support for Macs and iPhones that are years old, which is great, but that doesn't mean that Apple doesn't try to convince you to upgrade through some planned obsolescence. Many complained that even though the legacy iPhone 4s and iPad 2 were still supported by iOS 8, this slowed their devices to a crawl, and it seems that Apple has decided to address that. Apple has just launched iOS 8.1.1, which we ...

    The iPhones (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) of 2014 are bigger; both of them. Apple has finally decided to give up on whatever it was that made the company stick to the form factor of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, and the slightly smaller ones on the 4s, 4, and previous generation. Samsung played a huge role in setting a trend for bigger smartphones with its first Galaxy Note, and, ever since, the industry has been moving in the direction of bigger screens. The way it was before the two iPhones of this year, most of the competition's mini phones were larger than Apple's flagship. However, Apple ...

    Cloud storage has gained a significant level of popularity lately, and that’s mainly because technology is helping it become seamless. Surely it would’ve been easier if US Carriers wouldn’t have dropped their unlimited data plans, but it’s hard to deny that things “just work” in most of the cloud storage services we see in the market. One of the pioneers of the cloud mentality was Apple with its MobileMe services, though that particular story was so full of horror that the company ended up fixing it and rebranding it to iCloud. Steve Jobs envisioned a service that would ...

    If one of the best selling smartphones in the world has only gotten more popular as it slims itself down, then there must be a market that really cares about this. Oppo has seen this over the last couple of years with its R lineup, and after the success of the R3 earlier this year, the new Oppo R5 takes slimness to a whole new level. We've still got more coverage coming to you from Singapore, and in this next video, we intend to give you a quick idea of what it's like to hold the Oppo R5 beside its nearest competitor, the iPhone 6. You might think that the Oppo R5 is too thin and easily ...

    At WWDC this year, Apple announced a brand new feature for iOS devices and Macs called Continuity. The idea was to streamline the process between switching devices and to make iOS and Mac OS work more closely together. It's a software feature that lets you use your iPhone, iPad, and Mac interchangeably, for almost any task. Answer an incoming phone call on your iPhone using your iPad or Mac, load the same web page you have open in Safari on your Mac on your iPhone, or load the spreadsheet you've been editing on your iPad on the Mac, all without having to sift through dozens icons and other ...

    One of the most interesting dramas of the year is Apple's intention to bring sapphire technology to its next iOS and Apple Watch lineup. We heard an insane amount of rumors regarding Apple's plans with sapphire at the beginning of this year, but these all began to fade as we heard of more and more production delays on the side of GT Advanced. We thought that the recent filing for bankruptcy wouldn't affect Apple's plans, but in the end, it seems they did. Apple and GT Advanced Technologies have just made the rupture of their agreement official. This drops the exclusivity deal between Apple ...
