    A time not too far into the past, Apple's mobile products were the gold standard of the industry. The iPhone dictated the direction of the coming year, and it was one of the few smartphones with incredible design and a consistent and reliable user experience. Further, tablet-optimized applications were made almost solely for Apple's iPad. However, Apple has been slow to update its software, hardware innovation has almost slowed to a crawl, and other OEMs are closing the gap in many areas – tablet market share, tablet-optimized apps, and even customer satisfaction. Apple got comfortable. ...

    So, the news is finally out. The iPhone, much to no one’s surprise, now is bigger – 4.7” and 5.5” to be exact. This is fantastic news if you happen to be in the market for a bigger iPhone, and let’s face it, who isn’t? Amirite? But all the same, it’s cool that iPhone users now have the choice of small, medium or large for their phones, as well as their soft drinks. The iPhone 5s takes the place of the iPhone 5 as the “cheap” iPhone (and same sized iPhone for those who still want to rock a four-incher), and the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus emerge as the quality and premium brands. ...

    Now that it's official, we're already convinced that Apple will be seeing a massive number of sales when the iPhone 6 becomes available for purchase on September 19; that's become a fact of all Apple launches as of late, and it's something we've come to expect. But this time, since there are two high-end offerings – a 4.7-incher and a 5.5-incher – and loads of competition from IFA 2014 on the horizon, we were curious to see how many of you were interested in purchasing the iPhone 6. Thus, a poll: are you buying the iPhone 6? To help you with your decision, we've got a bunch of pieces ...

    For its first iPhone endeavor above four inches on the diagonal, Apple went big. It today has the iPhone 6 Plus, what looks to be a direct jab at Samsung's phablet counterpart, the Galaxy Note 4. So now that these two rivals are hitting each other hard in this big-screened arena as well, we thought it proper that we compare and contrast the specs of the two in an Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 specs comparison. Without a doubt it's the Android that wins the spec battle here, but that doesn't mean the iPhone didn't perform commendably in our chart. In fact, it bested the Note ...

    With the arrival of new CEO Marcelo Claure, Sprint is looking to shake things up and grab itself customers. This is largely an uphill battle for the company though, and a difficult one at that – the company is frequently stereotyped as the carrier where you'll never have service. While that's pretty far from the truth these days, it is indeed a fact that Sprint is the least reliable major US carrier, so it has to counter that by enticing customers with sweet-looking plans. The latest new Sprint plan? Pay $50, get unlimited everything (with support for Spark LTE, too). But there's a bit ...

    At about this time of year every year, we're faced with the same situation. Apple has just gone official with a new iPhone (two new iPhones, this time), and in that process discounted the pricing of the last-gen models. So is it worth skipping on the upgrades and grabbing a cheaper phone instead? Let's have a look in our Apple iPhone 6 vs iPhone 5s comparison chart. The good thing is, unlike what happened with Sony's flagship Xperia line, nothing has got worse between generations. And there's a commendable set of upgrades, too – it's more than clear that this isn't just an incremental ...

    This has been a very interesting year for smartphone technology. Seven years ago we would’ve never thought that smartphones would be as big as they are today, nor that we’d have better display resolution on our phones, than we do on the average television set. This year 2K displays, waterproof technology, stereo speakers, aluminum, and even the emerging LTE Advanced are the new thing, even though only a few smartphone manufacturers are pulling most of these off. After seven years, I finally decided to switch the iPhone as my daily driver because of all these trends. Surely my choice ...

    Love it or hate it, iPhone day is iPhone day. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and Apple did what it can do best, which is try to sell its new products to you through its keynote address. Today we saw the company announce the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two devices which were highly leaked all throughout the year. We also saw Apple announce new services like Apple Play in order to address the mobile payments sector, one that hasn't taken off since its inception under Google's leadership. And yes, there was "One more thing," the Apple Watch, which we did expect to ...

    The new iPhones are here; earlier today, Apple officially launched both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and while we're tempted to start calling these the "big" and "little" new iPhones, that's a bit a misnomer, as compared to previous generations, both new Apple smartphones soundly fall in that same "big" category. Size may be the most obvious factor separating these two iPhones, a consideration that spills over into categories like screen resolution, but that's not the only difference between the two. To help you with an at-a-glance breakdown of some of the key iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ...

    Apple just announced its latest iPhone models, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Among the laundry list of hardware features just confirmed for these two phones is NFC support, Apple's first foray into the tech on its smartphones. With its arrival, Apple's finally ready to get into the mobile payment game, launching its Apple Pay system. Apple Pay lets users add payment cards to Passbook with their phones' cameras, securely storing your data. It supports Visa, Master Card, and American Express, and a number of big-name banks are similarly on board. Beyond tap-to-pay at retail locations, ...

    IFA 2014 has passed its mobile launch baton to Apple, and today in California, with members of the press in attendance at the Flint Center and millions of Apple fans watching at home, it's time to announce the company's latest products and services.

After months of anticipation, speculation, and leaks, we have it just the way we like it – we have a general idea of what to expect from the Cupertino company, but the launch is still shrouded in mystery. The event today isn't just limited to members of the press, as there's a full Apple iPhone 6 event live stream and many other ways of learning about the announcements as they arrive. The best way to get your Apple fix today is through the company's own live stream, which should be going live at the link at the bottom of this post just a bit before the event ...

    Love it or hate it, tomorrow is probably one of the biggest days of the year for the smartphone market. Apple may not be the biggest smartphone seller in the world, but the world's most popular smartphone has belonged to Apple almost every year, since its inception in the summer of 2007. There are a ton of rumors of what to expect for Apple's September 9 event, so let's try to place all these rumors into perspective, as it seems that Apple is launching more than one product tomorrow. iPhone 6 Rumors claim that Apple is planning to change everything all over again when it comes to the ...

    We've criticized the approach that many OEMs have taken with tablets and phablets because many have decided to simply increase the display size, and very few have done a smart job at giving you an added level of usability through it. Apple and Samsung have both done an amazing job with their iPad and Galaxy Note lineup, but with the rumors of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, you'd wonder how Apple is planning to approach its first phablet. Developer Steven Throughton-Smith recently decided to modify Apple's iOS simulator in order to portray what apps would look like on a 5.5-inch display and 2208 x ...

    There's been no shortage of Apple hardware leaks going back the past few months now, and the question's been less one of “when are we going to start seeing some iPhone 6 stuff” and more one of “just which of these many, many leaks is the real deal?” But as we close in on next week's anticipated launch date, we've found the chaff separating from wheat, and a clearer image of the phone's hardware emerging. This weekend we move beyond component shots and dummy models, and even fully-assembled handsets, to seeing one captured in operation on video. It's just a short clip, but it does ...
