    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 ...

    Most of Apple's iPhone 6 rumors have focused on the company making some interesting additions to its future smartphone. Some rumors claim that we'll finally see new technologies like NFC make it to the final design, and others believe that the carved logo will also allow for Apple to bring it's famous "Mac-glowing" logo to its iPhone line-up. Sadly at this point anything can happen, and some new reports claim that this is not going to happen. New sources claim that the logo is being cut out in a similar process to what we've previously seen on the iPad, and its main purpose is allow Apple ...

    As we get closer to September, the amount of rumors regarding the future of the iPhone 6 will only get stronger. There's been a continuous debate over the possible launch of both the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch models of the iPhone 6 that are being rumored, some assuming a simultaneous launch, and others a separate one. Today we get some additional rumors from China, some of which are credible, some of which are questionable. Two separate sources are claiming that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will not receive any sapphire display love when launched in September. According to one of these sources, ...

    Purchasing an iPhone on any Apple Store can be as convenient as it is a burden. On any launch day it's always easier to find iPhones at an Apple Store than at carrier stores, but you're always stuck with he burden of not being able to take advantage of US Carrier Early Upgrade Programs. You were forced to go for either another 2-year contract, or cough the amount of money it costs to buy an iPhone unlocked. Sources claim that this policy is about to change as Apple is rumored to be training its Apple Store employees from August 10th to August 8th on how to apply early upgrade programs. If ...

    Apple is notoriously famous for being a late bloomer when it comes to adding new hardware features to its iPhone lineup. Still, we must admit that in most of these cases, the late adoption of certain technology has allowed Apple to find smarter ways to use it. We've been using NFC on Android smartphones for years, and more rumors point to Apple doing the same with the iPhone 6. Leaked photos of the iPhone 6 printed circuit board (PCB) show us that it's not only growing in size, but it's also growing in the antennas it will support. The sources claim that the extra connectors found in the ...

    The Internet is full of two things lately: conflicting rumors on the launch date for the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and a ton of dummy units that tease what to expect. The biggest problem with these dummies is that we've learned they aren't close to the level of detail we'll find in the final design, so it's really hard to use these in order to land predictions. Hardware aside, what if you could see how a 4.7-inch iPhone would handle itself if it were a working dummy? Well, instead of calling this a dummy, let's call this a clone as a new video shows us the "Wico6" being tested. This ...

    Many of the rumors that have surround the two iPhone 6 models have claimed the possibility of a delay in the launch of the 5.5-inch model due to manufacturing issues. Newer rumors even mention that Apple is having a hard time deciding on the date for the announcement because it wants to launch both devices at the same time. Now, what if these rumors were wrong and a separate iPhone launch is actually part of a strategy to compete against companies like Samsung? Digitimes is reporting that Apple wants to launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 before it launches the 5.5-inch model in order to avoid ...

    The iPhone 6 is coming – or so we think it is. Or so we think they are? Are multiple iPhone 6s coming? Is the 4-inch iPhone nearing end of life? What about that plastic thing Apple made last year? Is it dead, too? Oh, yeah. The plot thickens every single day. And we actually have no idea what to think about these upcoming iPhones or all the rumors that claim to have the answers to one of the biggest tech mysteries of 2014. Still, each and every day, I get bombarded with all sorts of questions regarding the upcoming iPhone. "What do you know about the iPhone 6?" "When is the new iPhone ...

    There are a ton of conflicting rumors in the market regarding the launch of the iPhone 6. The general consensus is that the event will happen in mid September, but where things are mainly mixed is in the possibility of both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch variant launching at the same time. Today we land another batch of rumors on the topic, and instead of providing some clarity; it only made things more confusing. New sources claim that even though iOS 8 is nearing its final stages to be complete, Apple hasn't decided on a final date for the announcement because the of issues with ...

    If you all remember, the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c last year caught Apple with a little surprise. Tim Cook at some point admitted that he expected there to be a balanced demand for Apple's current iPhones, and instead, people went crazy for the iPhone 5s and nearly ignored the iPhone 5c. It took Apple months to be able to meet demand for the iPhone 5s, and reports claim that the company doesn't want to face these constraints with the iPhone 6. The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple is placing an order for a staggering 70 to 80 million units of the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch ...

    Two years ago, Apple did the nearly unthinkable, and made a big change to the iPhone's design. After years and years of releasing handsets with 3.5-inch displays, the iPhone 5 ushered-in the era of the four-inch screen. Last year Apple returned with more of the same, but if we're to believe the abundance of rumors, this year's going to mark the next major shift. Instead of another four-incher, sources would have us believe that Apple is making the push up to 4.7 inches for the iPhone 6, and we could even see that one joined by a still-larger 5.5-inch phablet. As we continue to bring you ...
