    That iPhone 7 in Jet Black that you pre-ordered weeks ago still hasn't gotten to you yet? Sit your butt down, your chances are still slim for a fast pickup. KGI Securities's Ming-Chi Kuo has a research note saying that the glass-aluminium combination build has been trouble at the factories with yield rates dipping to between 60 and 70 percent. Demand for Jet Black has mounted to about one-third of pre-orders globally and nearly half of Chinese orders. The firm also found in its pre-orders survey that there was an even split globally between iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus reservations. All that ...

    "These initial sales will be governed by supply, not demand, and we have decided that [a first weekend sales figure] is no longer a representative metric for our investors and customers." Apple would not disclose initial sales numbers for its iPhone 7. Sure, maybe the supply chain was struggling to keep up, but observations about the pre-order process and T-Mobile's reported quadrupling of iPhone pre-orders lead us to think that high demand has been mobilized. So high, Taiwan's Digitimes is reporting from its sources that chip orders for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have surged to a ...

    Didn't we warn you earlier? The social media posts complaining about one thing or another? In this case, it's about iPhone 7 pre-orders.

The 128GB Rose Gold model will be shipped during that time as well. All other iPhone 7 variants will ship ...

    Don't be surprised if you find Apple Stores devoid of iPhone 7 boxes come this first weekend of sales. You may instead see mildly disappointed people walking away empty-handed. In the past, a huge influx of pre-orders and first-wave sales would deplete initial iPhone SE stock in a snap and prolong shipping times for the original Apple Watch. Well, Infinite Loop is finally admitting to investors that they should not be paying attention to first-weekend sales figures — Apple won't be announcing them anymore. "As we have expanded our distribution through carriers and resellers to hundreds ...

    Back when I started working for Pocketnow, I brought my own HTC-made T-Mobile G1 with me. Shortly thereafter I was sent the Nexus One (also made by HTC) and used that as my daily driver until I replaced it with another HTC device. Over the years I've had long-term experience with every single Nexus out there, which is fitting for the type of user that I am: I'm a power user and a developer. Even for tech journalists, devices in the Nexus family were (and arguably still are) the best by which to reference all the different OEM "flavors" of Android. The Nexus program worked well. Devices ...
