    Mixpanel's latest tracking survey shows that a healthy contingent of iPhone users don't want to make an upgrade that will strain their hands. After publicized cases of "texting thumb" making the news and in a stark face-off against the growing trend of the growing phone, data says more than 37 percent of iPhone toters have a device dating back to at least 2013. The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were the last four-inch mobile devices we got from Cupertino before the stretch to a 4.7 inch minimum. The former had the most share at 18 percent of all iPhones while the latter registered nearly 5.5 ...

    Apple CEO Tim Cook took a couple of hours to deliver the state of the company to his employees. Along with celebrating another fantastic holiday sales season, teasing the second office campus for a January 2017 ribbon-cutting, expanding employee benefits and more, Cook had some interesting outlooks for its mobile hardware and services. The executive said that the iPhone is the "greatest business of the future," perhaps for decades. Apple has made India its number one emerging market target with plans to bring official retail presence there. It will extend its presence in China as well. ...

    Porsche has a certain image that holds high prestige for those who like straightaways and sharp lefts and are rich enough to look stunning steering that wheel. Those who are rich enough to look stunning while not steering a wheel would rather see a self-driving car come around. The luxury auto brand is not and will not go for that demography. Porsche CEO Oliver Bume said to a German newspaper: // One wants to drive a Porsche by oneself [...] An iPhone belongs in your pocket, not on the road. Of course, in the luxury automobile category, there is a difference between performance drivers ...

    Voice assistants tend to be pretty helpful in getting you what you want to know. Google Now seems to be one of the more matured services that can get more than the basics down to an art. Cortana, being one of the newer players, is getting there quick — especially with cross-platform access. We refer to these types of services, however, as Siri, almost by second nature. Says a lot about what Apple does. But this is about what Apple didn't do for five years. Since 2011, it was reported to Apple when Siri fielded queries about where one could find an abortion clinic that she instead would ...

    Rumors are swirling about the compact iPhone 5se and super-sharp iPad Air 3 Apple might be unveiling as early as March, plus the iPhone 7 no doubt scheduled for a fall release, but it’s actually next year that we’ll likely see true innovation brought to iDevices. No, we don’t mean just AMOLED display technology, though that would be a pretty big deal too, but rather a “cutting-edge” new feature allowing iPhones and iPads “to be powered from further away than the charging mats used with current smartphones”, as Bloomberg eloquently puts it. To an outsider’s eye, it probably ...

    This is not a drill, prank or isolated incident. Browsing the web on iOS devices and Mac computers using the default Safari app can result in nagging crashes over and over again. Reopening the browser doesn’t resolve the mysterious underlying glitch, which apparently has something to do with search suggestions. No, simply changing the search engine can’t fix the epidemic bug either, but the good news is you can contain the malfunction by turning off Safari suggestions. That’s obviously merely a temporary workaround, the only other thing that kind of works is not clearing your cached ...

    We’ve all been there. Whether it’s working for a tech giant in a low-level customer support position, getting through college with the aid of a cashier gig at a fast food chain, or signing an exclusive endorsement contract as a professional athlete, the temptation to try out the forbidden fruit often gets the best of us. But the head of the team building the phone, tablet and PC versions of Windows is obviously under far greater scrutiny than just any McDonald’s employee who likes to eat at KFC in their lunch break, or even a famous person paid to advertise some gadget and favoring ...

    We know that Sharp does a very, very mean LCD. But we've also been talking about Apple's edging away from those liquid crystals and more towards those organic light-emitting diodes. Samsung may be making some panels for a future iPhone. Japan Display says it will soon start making them, full stop. Its OLED production will ramp up during 2018 as it chases LG Display. That company's in the process of starting its own OLED factories. Sharp, LG Display, Japan Display and Samsung have all supplied LCD screens for iPhones. To tie Sharp into this story: Japan Display's biggest shareholder, a ...

    The road from an abstract concept or idea to a mass-produced commercial device can often be quite long and convoluted in the tech décor, especially when talking about Apple, which very rarely takes risks on “experimental” gadgets or features. Cupertino delayed the inevitable IPS LCD to AMOLED iPhone transition for as long as humanly possible, so naturally, it seems highly unlikely the tardy move will occur simultaneously with folding screen technology adoption. But a patent filing with the USPTO from yesterday, January 21, does at least prove Apple is testing the “electronic device ...

    Samsung Electronics may not be making the guts that will go into the next iPhone, but it will be making the Snapdragon 820. But applications processors aren't the only components the manufacturer makes; it's also into displays. And with Apple looking to change up its display technology come the year after next, what better time than now to prepare for things. Reports from inside sources say Samsung will invest up to $7.5 billion in facility expansion and new equipment to produce flexible OLED displays per month for future iPhones. Apple will order between 30,000 and 45,000 displays a month ...

    You like charts? Tech analyst Horace Dediu likes to craft charts for "idle amusement" on occasion and, based on data from market research firm Gartner, has found that iPhone shipments have surpassed Windows PC shipments in 2015. Furthermore, if we extrapolate current trend lines out to 2027, we might see Mac shipments up above PC shipments. Idle amusement. pic.twitter.com/Kiyj3Vr5Hx — Horace Dediu (@asymco) January 13, 2016 Of course, the PC space has been contracting in favor of smaller or more physically-versatile devices for productivity's sake (at least, the buzzword right now is ...

    If you want to take a stab at doing more on your phone in 2016, make sure you have an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, first of all. It has 3D Touch. Rimshot aside, iOS is getting another point upgrade and we now know more about what goodies are going into the bump. Since we mentioned it first, 3D Touch menus will be available for the Weather, Settings, Compass, Health ("Don't worry, I'm a medic"), App Store and iTune Store apps. We already talked about Night Shift, the Touch ID lock for Notes as well as improvements to News. Other major improvements include jumps between Apple Pay and Wallet ...

    We’re only a week or two away from Apple’s detailed financial report of the just-ended holiday quarter, and iPhones could post a new all-time record… or their first yearly drop in history. It’s close, but Gene Munster, the managing director and senior research analyst at Piper Jaffray, expects the former scenario to materialize, as unit shipments may have topped 75 million after all. Still, that would largely mark box-office stagnation for Cupertino’s main cash cow, which should generate quarterly revenues of around $77 billion. Stagnation is better than a decline, but ...

    Fossil wants to hit the right demographics with its classy-looking Android Wear smartwatches. According to Esquire magazine's media kit: Esquire is geared toward men who have arrived. They dress for themselves; have both the means and knowledge to invest; can order with confidence in a fine restaurant; have a healthy respect and admiration for women; take vacations that enrich their lives and recharge their energy; and have mastered many of life's basics. What they want is a primer on how to lead a richer, better, fuller, and more meaningful life. In other words, college-educated men aged ...

    Slowly but surely, the cars we drive are learning to play nicely with the phones we carry. Maybe it started with Bluetooth support several back, and now we're finally seeing some much more fleshed-out vehicle integration, and a huge chunk of that is thanks to the platform-level support we see from the likes of Android Auto and Apple's CarPlay. And while this represents a very exciting time for those of you who consider yourself gear-heads as much as phone-junkies, getting started with one of these systems can be a bit of a daunting task, especially if you don't know which new cars support ...

    In addition to iPhones, which are single-handedly responsible for a mind-blowing 94 percent of global handheld profits, the rapidly growing Apple Watch, perpetually beloved Macs, and the slow-starting but potential-brimming iPad Pro, the world’s most lucrative tech business can also rely on its iOS App Store for a solid chunk of change. How solid? To the tune of $20 billion a year, according to Cupertino’s latest press release, although that obviously accounts for developer payments and other expenses too. Still, $20 billion sales of apps and in-app items in 2015 alone should solidify ...

    Luca Todesco (qwertyqoruiop on Twitter) has apparently manage to achieve an iOS 9.2.1 Jailbreak, if the screenshot he posted (above) is to be believed. It shows Cydia running on an iPhone 6, powered by iOS 9.2.1. However, the tweet is accompanied by Todesco's not so reassuring promise that the jailbreak will not be released, at least for now. That, however, doesn't mean that you won't see a working iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak soon, as Todesco might either change his mind, or he might just pass along the information to another team who would release the jailbreak. Meanwhile, other teams are working ...

    Aside from its new Notebook 9 series laptops and the Galaxy TabPro S 2-in-1, Samsung also brought a new Chromebook 3 to Las Vegas. At 17.7mm in thickness and 1.14kg in weight (has a reinforced metal body), it features an 11.6-inch display with a 1,366x768 resolution, dual-core Intel Celeron N3050 processor, 2- or 4GB RAM variants, and 16GB of internal storage. There's no exact word on pricing and availability aside from "early 2016". Additionally, Samsung has announced two new color options for its Gear S2 Classic smartwatch (not the sporty Gear S2). It will be available in Platinum ...

    If you're an iPhone or an iPad user, chances are you have, at least once in your life, tried to find a solution to hide (if not uninstall) some of the apps that Apple bundles with its devices. Well, for those of you who are brave enough to live the Jailbreak way, this might not be big news, but, for all the others, it's one more reason for joy. No jailbreak is needed for this little trick/hack to work, and it is persistent until you restart your iPhone or iPad. This isn't, obviously, the best solution users were hoping for, and we're pretty sure it's also not what Tim Cook had in mind when ...

    ... is it over yet? Okay, here's something more interesting besides politics. Business Insider got a chance to talk with US Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. In addition to dishing out on other candidates, he also showed his discerning tech taste towards the forerunner of all smart wearables (at least, that's what mainstream analysts are painting it as), the hot-as-ever Apple Watch. Bush has been pictured at several events sporting the wearable. He's also a little bit of a fitness buff, too. Here's a transcript on his "iWatch" thoughts: [The device] requires a lot more work than ...

    This is a story of redemption. It's also the story of acceptance. And it's partly a story of not giving a rat's bottom about which app you go to for your maps. Apple certainly cared where its users got their location apps when it launched Apple Maps back in 2012. With geological renderings of wonder, mislabeled roads and points of interest and, for the longest time, a lack of basic transit directions, it's a wonder how Apple Maps came to be chosen over Google Maps for iOS users. That's what Apple is reporting. Specifically, its app handles 5 billion requests every week, three times as many ...

    @Pocketnow covers tablets on a basis secondary to smartphones, but even at that number two level, it's been a fairly staid year for big slab news up until the last quarter or so. Sure, there's the Pixel C, but until we grab hold of a retail unit, it's all vaporware to us. And there's also those convertibles that Microsoft seems to like so much. But alas, we come back to the object of Steve Jobs's puzzlement, the iPad. Apple's tablet reigns supreme in ownership, sales and the mindspace. With a new iPad and an almost freakish enterprise product, an amazing showing during Black Friday sales ...

    How well are the two new iPhones doing at the box-office, between their eerily familiar designs, mostly incremental hardware updates, and paramount 3D Touch UI enhancements? Not great, according to some analyst estimates, but probably well enough to retain the lion’s share of global mobile profits. Haters could interpret the purported imminence of the 6c as another sign 6s and 6s Plus sales aren’t booming, while Cupertino admirers have a fresh report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners to base their optimism and even arrogance on. CIRP claims the number of first-month Android ...

    While millions of people still chose to rush to brick and mortar stores early Friday morning, before they could even properly digest their previous-day festive turkey meals, causing the now customary brawls over the last discounted HDTV, many others welcomed the future of retail, lifting their fingers merely to add marked down items to digital shopping carts. Exactly how much money did Americans spend online this Black Friday? A colossal $2.74 billion, according to Adobe estimations, in addition to $1.73 billion on Thanksgiving. The grand total was reportedly up more than 16 percent ...

    The built-in microphone of the Pebble Time, Time Steel, and Time Round smartwatches has been one of the trio’s most underused features since day one, especially when paired with iPhones. On iOS, you couldn’t even answer to text messages using your voice without pulling the iDevice from your pocket, an uncomfortable situation that’s about to change, at least for postpaid AT&T subscribers. Yes, our Ma Bell-loving readers and friends, you can now update your Pebble Time firmware and Time iPhone app to finally activate voice and text communication straight from your wrist. How does ...
