    Apple did innovate many years ago when it launched new sensors like an accelerometer and a proximity sensor on the first-generation iPhone. Most of you might not remember how much of a pain it was to go into landscape mode on smartphones before that, but that said, Apple has become quite slow in adopting new sensors on future iPhones. We've seen how Samsung has expanded the list of sensors significantly in its Galaxy line-up, and it seems that now Apple wants a piece of the pie. Some code that's hidden within Apple's iOS 8 SDK reveals that there is compatibility for a barometer in future ...

    There are simply too many leaks of iPhone 6 dummy units lately, up to the point that we've chosen to not cover some of them, since hey, they're not the real deal. Still, if you all remember two years ago, famous Taiwanese actor Jimmy Lin became even more famous when he leaked a real model of the iPhone 5 a couple of weeks before its release. If you thought Lin was done with that, you're wrong, as we saw some recent leaks of the real-deal 4.7-inch model in his hands a couple of days ago, and today he strikes again. Lin just posted a photo on Weibo where he's repairing the shattered display ...

    The fact that there was no hardware announced at WWDC 2014 makes Apple's fall launches quite compelling. We were expecting the company to launch the iWatch and some revamp to the iPhone at the event, and at the moment all we have are progress reports. The latest rumors from China are in today, and it gives us a clear picture of what to expect for both the iWatch and the iPhone. When it comes to the iWatch, rumors are slowly getting more detailed. This report mentioned a launch by Q3/2014, and that we should expect to see components and production from Largan, Foxconn, Pegatron, Quanta, ...

    Apple's next flagship, what we've been referring to as the iPhone 6, has been hotly anticipated throughout multiple leaks. What somehow hasn't managed to leak up until now is that this phone may feature a QHD display, just as the LG G3 does. Taiwanese actor Jimmy Lin, known for his early leak of the iPhone 5c last year, has posted an image to Weibo showing off what's allegedly a live iPhone 6 model, compared to the iPhone 5s. Though we can't say for sure whether Lin's model is indeed authentic, it lines up with what we've seen on previous dummy units and the actor's track record is ...

    The closer we get to Apple's yearly iPhone event, the more and more leaks seem to indicate that there will be two models with two different screen sizes. As we slowly start taking this for granted (until Apple proves everyone wrong, or not), we're even seeing reports and opinions on the pricing for the two upcoming models. Today though we're seeing an iPhone 6 leak, in a set of pictures purportedly depicting a real-life 5.5-inch iPhone 6 physical “dummy” mockup (next to the 4.7-inch version). The space grey version can be seen above, while the champagne gold can be seen below. ...

    For the moment, let's accept as fact that Apple is releasing two sizes of its next generation iPhone later this year, a detail widely rumored and finding support through a number of leaks, but still not full-on confirmed. Assuming Apple goes ahead and does this, what might that mean for how these phones are sold? The 4.7-inch model would presumably be the new default iPhone, replacing the 4-inch 5S, with the 5.5-inch model available as a phablet-like option for users wanting a larger device. It's not a stretch to imagine we're looking at about the same $200 on-contract starting price for ...

    Apple's making sapphire. Or rather, GT Advanced Technologies is handling the production in its Arizona plant, but these materials are destined for Apple products. The only questions, really, have concerned just which devices might end up with sapphire, and what it would be used for. And while it might be nice to see sapphire protecting the displays on all of Apple's upcoming gear, could there really be enough to go around? We've already heard rumors that production issues could limit the availability of certain models, but a new analyst report says we shouldn't be fretting, and claims that ...

    We started off the week taking a look at some of the latest pics purporting to reveal Apple's work on its next iPhone, revealing a very slim metal frame. And unlike the company's designs in years past, this time the phone's Apple logo was cut all the way through; was this really a part that would end up forming the body of the iPhone 6? Today we get some added corroboration as a few new pics emerge, once again revealing that same look for the phone's rear panel. That Apple logo cut-out may end up being used for some sort of antenna purposes – exactly how, we can't yet say, but with ...

    Hardly a day goes by when we don't hear something about the iPhone 6, and today's no exception. It was no shock when those really out-there WWDC launch rumors didn't pan out, leaving us to once again look to late summer or early fall for the arrival of Apple's new hardware, but just when might these phones become available? And with two models on the horizon, a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch version, would we be looking at separate launches, or would this be an all-at-once affair. A new report from Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White attempts to suss-out Apple's plans, and while the 4.7-inch ...

    Last week, Apple announced iOS 8 at its opening keynote for WWDC 2014. That comes as no real surprise as WWDC is where we typically meet the early incarnations of Apple's newest software versions. For the last several years, though, we've closed out of our WWDC keynote livesream and liveblog tabs with a subtle bitter taste in our mouths. Let's be honest, iOS 4, iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7 were all pretty boring. Sure, iOS 7 was a whole lot better to look at than previous versions, but useful features in the update were few and far between. We got Control Center, a better Notification Center, ...

    We're no strangers to iPhone 6 pics at this point, having seen our share of schematics, renders, dummy phones, and images of apparent handset components. Just how much of all this is based in fact and will reflect the design Apple ultimately delivers remains to be seen, but today we get to check out a few new shots of a handset frame that emerged over the weekend, as well as hear the latest rumors about what to expect from the fully-assembled phone. There's nothing too controversial about these images, which line up pretty nicely with the sort of thing we've been seeing so far: a ...

    iOS 8 is here –in Beta form, at least– and (surprise, surprise) we've got some opinions. For the last Weekly podcast to begin with a "0," we bring in the big guns to discuss Apple's new platform: a four-man team that includes our resident iOS experts, one of whom joins in from the blazing heat of a car baking in the North Carolina sun just to tell us his take on the iPhone 6 and how it will/won't/might end up being a phablet. Of course we don't stop with Apple: a panoply of mobile devices, from the LG G3 to the Galaxy S5 Active to the Motorola X+1, awaits our speculation, adulation, ...

    Surely a lot of us might be disappointed for the lack of hardware announcements at Apple's WWDC, but it seems that's the way to go lately, as Apple has followed this trend for three years straight now. For those of you wondering when we might see the iPhone 6 in retail stores, well our best bet is September; though don't take that as a confirmation. Still, if you're on the ropes considering an iPhone 5s, and you wish to see just how it compares to the future iPhone models to come, these leaked photos might help. The leaked photos show us cases for the iPhone 6 in both variants, 4.7-inches ...

    Yes, WWDC 2014 is over, and yes, if you were expecting the event to shed some light on Apple's hardware in the future, you'll sadly be disappointed. The company spent two hours showcasing what we can expect for the future of its software offerings, but those of you expecting hardware will have to wait until Apple's usual fall events. Still, that Apple's partners aren't making some official statements, one that happened today is kind of a shocker. Rarely do we see Apple's partners officially announce that they are working on an Apple product, and specially a product that hasn't been ...
