    Just a little earlier this week we were thinking about USB cables, and specifically, ones that could be inserted into a device regardless of their orientation: double-sided connectors, just like Apple introduced with its Lightning cable a couple years back. That new USB interface will ultimately arrive as part of the USB 3.1 Type-C spec, but with the details only just now going official, it's still going to be a while before we see anything like that on our phones. Now a new leak suggests that Apple could beat the rest of the industry to the punch, and may release a new Lightning cable for ...

    We're just a couple of weeks way from the rumored announcement of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and a couple of months away from the possible announcement of the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and the iWatch. Many sources have been fumbling with conflicting rumors regarding the availability of a sapphire display on any of these products, but it seems that one very credible source has some new insight on how things will play. The Wall Street Journal has just reported that Apple is still planning to use sapphire on the iPhone 6, though not every iPhone will get some love. We're still not sure if sapphire ...

    Rumors claim that Apple's manufacturing partners are already in the final validation stages for mass production of the iPhone 6. It would be safe to say that whatever leaks come next of any iPhone 6 component will be part of the final production units that customers will see at some point in September. Today we see a new batch of these components, and the leaker was nice enough to carry a good camera along. These recently leaked photos show us high-quality imagery of the iPhone 6's front panel in both front and back, and also some of the buttons. If you had any doubts about the rumored ...

    We're just a couple of weeks away from the rumored Apple event where the company is supposed to unveil its latest and greatest iPhone 6, or at least one of them. As such, we have a ton of conflicting rumors regarding the final details in the device's design, and the stage at which it currently is in its manufacturing process. Rumors point to the device hitting store shelves on September 19th, and judging by some of the latest reports, that might be right. Asian sources claim that the iPhone 6 is currently hitting its "product validation testing." This is the last test before the device ...

    Just as we suspected, the iPhone 6 rumors continue to surface. After previously seeing purported pictures of the retail box -- which raised a few questions though, with a safe to assume conclusion that we were looking at a Chinese knockoff, the GooPhone I6 -- we are now seeing, above and below, what is claimed to be a picture of the iPhone 6 backplate. In the image above we can take a close look at the camera, the flash, as well as the microphone on the back, while the picture below seems to show off the back of the device in its entirety. We can't verify the veracity of these iPhone 6 ...

    We don't expect iPhone 6-related rumors, leaks, and reports to slow down; on the contrary, we're anticipating that more and more will surface until Apple will finally unveil the 2014 smartphone line-up, which everyone takes for granted will contain two iPhone 6 devices with larger screens, at 4.7 and 5.5-inches. We've recently seen some Apple logos being leaked, indicating that they most probably will not glow, and now we're looking at what is claimed to be the iPhone 6 retail box. While the veracity of the pictures (above and below) can't be verified, we're left with what we're seeing. ...

    We've heard some very interesting rumors of what the iPhone 6 might do. One of the most surprising ones is a report that claimed that the Apple logo at the back would glow and provide users with notifications. While this isn't something new for Apple given its way to bring this to its MacBook line-up, we've never seen the company do this with mobile devices, and it seems that history won't change. A leaked batch of iPhone 6 Apple logos was recently caught on camera, and judging by the looks of these, they weren't made to glow. It seems that these logos mimic what we currently see in ...

    There are some substantial changes coming to Apple's next-generation iPhone 6. From a dramatic redesign, to the possibility of two models that are much bigger than the current iPhones we see, Apple is clearly out to address the needs of many consumers today. That said, there are a couple of parts that may change in size, but that will retain aesthetics as much as possible in order to bring that familiar iPhone look that everybody can tell from a distance, and that's part of today's leaks. We get some additional photos of the iPhone 6 front panel, and this time it seems to include all the ...

    We're just a couple of weeks away from the rumored event where Apple might launch its next-generation iPhone 6. We've seen leaks of its design, and we've also seen leaks of some of its technical specifications. Today we get another round at the enhancements we should expect. Rumors point to the iPhone 6 sporting some interesting new hardware. We had heard of the device bringing WiFi 802.11ac to the table, along with NFC, and even new enhancements to Touch ID. Today's rumors agree to these previous claims, but we get some additional details on some extra enhancements. One of these changes ...

    One of the biggest issues with any of the iPhones that we've tested, is that it "just works," until it doesn't. Battery life is a big problem with iPhones, where we've seen Apple only grow the size of the battery a few mAh in its seven year existence. Samsung and other companies are even mocking iPhone customers for their need to be plugged to the wall, and it seems that Apple might want to do something about it. New reports claim that Apple is planning to launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 with a 2,100 mAh battery. Previous rumors mentioned that the iPhone 6 was only getting an 1,810 mAh ...

    There is a ton of speculation around the possible launch of Apple's next generation iPhone 6. Recent reports claimed that the company couldn't decide on a final date because of the possible delays of the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 variant. Others claimed that it was a strategic move for the phablet to launch until December. More rumors today have given additional credibility to a specific date for a September announcement, and this time it seems final. Credible sources are saying that Apple has already decided on a announcement for the iPhone 6 on September 9th, and with shipments arriving ...

    Apple has a tough challenge in being able to differentiate the iPhone 6 this year. With competing devices like the HTC One (M8), the rumored Galaxy Note 4, and the LG G3, Apple needs more than just another iPhone hitting the market. We've heard diverse rumors pointing to the company using sapphire in order to boost the durability of its offering, but some new official news make that highly unlikely. Apple's sapphire partner, GT Advanced Technologies, has just posted its quarter results and has discussed the current status of its Arizona plant. If you remember, this is the facility that's ...

    As we get closer to Apple's rumored launch of the iPhone 6 in September, more rumors continue to point to a separate launch of the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model. Most of these rumors mention that both devices will be almost identical to each other, one being just bigger than the other as we currently see with the premium iPad lineup. Still, until these products are launched, rumors can change dramatically over night and that's what seems to be the case with Apple's new smartphones. Analysts now believe that Apple is planning to launch the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 phablet with a beefier ...
