    If you were following iPhone 6 rumors going all the way back through the beginning of the year, you were probably a little surprised to see the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus debut without a sapphire display on either of them. Reports about Apple's sapphire investment may have gone back-and-forth over whether both screen sizes would see the sapphire treatment, but surely at least one of them would end up with such an extremely scratch-resistant screen, right? Well, apparently not, and post-launch rumors attempted to frame the component's absence as a late-stage manufacturing issue. But is that ...

    Being the smartphone-obsessive types that we are, we've seen more than a few cameras in our day that stick out from the handset's body. Those range from the exaggerated, like the old Nokia 808 PureView, to the minimal, like on the Nexus 5. This year, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both sport some cameras that protrude a bit from the phones' back panels. On the grand scale of things, the bump is minimal – much more in line with the Nexus 5 than the 808. So why, then, does Apple appear to be going to some lengths to obscure the presence of that raised lens? Looking at most of the imagery ...

    If you're wondering why people go so crazy on the launch date of any iPhone, it really has nothing to do with wanting to have it first on that specific day. The biggest problem is that for the longest of time, Apple has always struggled with meeting the amount of demand that it gets. We already saw how crazy the preorders went on September 12, and with Apple's online store now pushing shipments to three weeks, you can imagine the same will happen this Friday. Sources claim that Apple will struggle to meet demand of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on September 19. The amount of units that ...

    Apple is not only famous for its products and services, but also for how crazy things get whenever the company launches a new product, and specially a new iPhone. We've already heard that the company is making some dramatic changes to its Apple Store device reservation system, but it seems the company is preparing for more. Today we find new leaks that expose how Apple plans to handle the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on September 19, and we sure hope it works. The leak claims that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus inventories will arrive at Apple Stores on September 17th, and that ...

    Last week's launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus afforded Apple the opportunity to give its smartphone lineup some hardware it had been missing for years: an NFC transceiver. While NFC has been present on Android devices going back several generations, and we've even seen it come to platforms like Windows Phone, Apple has been hesitant to follow suit. But this year was different, as Apple didn't just launch new hardware, but also its Apple Pay mobile payments system, finally giving it a solid reason to justify NFC's presence; just as you might do with Google Wallet or Softcard (née ...

    When Apple announced the iPhone 5s, one of the features that was talked about the most was its A7 64-bit chip. Surely to this moment we're still struggling to find the benefits behind it, but one thing we do remember is that benchmarks completely blew away any Android competitor at the time. Still, that didn't matter with Apple's conservative approach to software, and if you're wondering how it'll be with the iPhone 6, some information has already emerged. Some early GPU benchmarks have emerged of the iPhone 6 and its new A8 chip, and the results score 21,204 points in graphics performance ...

    We're just a couple of days away from Apple's official launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and with that, more details emerge on what you're getting when you unbox the phone. At the moment, we do know that the box will contain the usual stack of EarPods, Lightning connector and charger, since Apple is that predictable. What is a change though, is that it seems that Apple will bundle more software as part of your unboxing experience. Retail Store employees are reportedly being trained on the apps that will be included on every iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you purchased a 16GB iPhone ...

    Last week, Apple announced what is arguably one of its most anticipated iPhone updates yet: the iPhone 6. As expected, though, thanks to month of rumors and leaks, the iPhone 6 comes in two different flavors. The iPhone 6 is a rather large bump in size over the iPhone 5 and 5s – from 4-inches to 4.7-inches – with a respective increase in resolution to 750p. The iPhone 6 Plus is a more dramatic increase in size to a 5.5-inch display with 1080p resolution. Both models come with most of the same hardware upgrades: an A8 chipset with a slightly faster clock speed, larger batteries, a 128GB ...

    The iPhone 6 (and its bigger brother, the 6 Plus) is going to be big. And no, we don't just mean this year's arrival of the largest screens for iPhone handsets to date; this thing is selling like hotcakes. At least, that's the impression we got last week when hearing from AT&T that pre-orders for the phone had managed to outdo either of the previous two years' iPhone launches, but just how many sales are we talking about, anyway? Apple has weighed-in with some official numbers, confirming record-setting interest. In the first 24 hours of pre-orders alone, Apple fans bought over four ...

    Updated with links to the high-quality, edited version of the podcast. We hope you enjoyed; see you next week! We stayed up all night waiting for an iPhone that (almost) never came. A few days before that, we opined mightily about the smartwatch that's slated to accompany it come early next year – and a day or two before that, we took a quick look at the latest iPhone and Apple Watch competition from the Motorola camp, with the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360. It's smartwatch and smartphone soup over here at Pocketnow and, generous guys that we are, we want to share the experience with ...

    Even though we all anticipated the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, we can't deny that the amount of hiccups in the live stream were annoying. Some of us spent minutes refreshing browsers, Apple TVs, iPads and iPhones trying to find a stream that wouldn't crash, something you wouldn't expect from a technology company. The announcement of Apple's new iPhone 6 and Apple Watch have also left the industry quite polarized, and you bet that the competition is doing something about it. Samsung's new ad campaign is titled "It doesn't take a genius," and the six ads that we've seen so far are focused ...
