Teenagers charged for scam selling iPhone boxes filled with Play-Doh

Opinion: Why Force Touch on the iPhone will be awesome

07/28, 10:12pm

Force Touch is set to make a big impact on the iPhone

Following the arrival of Apple Watch, a lot of people are expecting to see Apple bring Force Touch to the iPhone. It seems inevitable that Apple will do just that, with the possibility that it could arrive as soon as the next version of the iPhone, expected to arrive in the next couple of months. Not only will it work as a key feature differentiator, it will actually be a great addition for iPhone functionality, and I can't wait for it to arrive.

Report: iOS devices now outsell all Windows machines combined

07/23, 5:09pm

Wintel installed base still larger, but Apple sees expansion headroom still

Apple reached a new milestone with its most recent quarterly report, according to analyst Benedict Evans, in that the combined sales of iOS devices now match annual sales of all Windows devices made by various manufacturers. While not unexpected, the change demonstrates the changing nature of computing in the 21st century, which has become increasingly mobile-centric and cloud-dependent -- two trends that have had significant ripple effects through the entire PC industry.

Analysis: China continues to be growth engine for Apple

07/21, 11:52pm

Region continues to offset normal summer sales doldrums

Although Apple's conference call with analysts on Tuesday was light on new information, a few facts and figures about China -- Apple's fastest-growing sales region by revenue, and currently buying more iPhones than the US -- came to light. In the most recent quarter, Apple's "greater China" revenues (which include Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau and Taiwan) jumped 112 percent from the year-ago quarter, to $13.2 billion. That's right, more than double. In a year.

Apple breaks quarterly records with strong iPhone, Mac sales

07/21, 4:44pm

Foreign sales dominate as Apple shatters fiscal Q3 records

The enduring popularity of the iPhone 6 line -- particularly in developing and rapid-growing markets such as China -- has allowed Apple to again beat quarterly best-ever records with its most recent fiscal Q3 report. The company sold more than 47.5 million iPhones, lower than analyst predictions, but which represents 35 percent year-over-year growth. Macs sold 4.7 million units, another record for a fiscal Q3 and up seven percent year-over-year.

Roughing it with Apple gear

The Lake District is one of the UK's most beautiful regions: as well as the lakes, there are mountains. Picture it now: ancient lands, the weight of history on the very landscape around you -- and turn left a bit. Away from all of that, and into a little town no tourist ever notices. Now turn right, second left, first tree past the Post Office, down a bit, take another right at that man with the bobble hat out walking his spaniel, and that's where we are. You can't miss us. Chiefly because we take turns leaning out of the window to get a cell signal.

Apple launches new ad campaigns for iPhone, Apple Watch

07/16, 4:54pm

New ads focus on lifestyle for Watch, technical superiority for iPhone

Over the past week, Apple has launched two new ad campaigns for its iPhone and Apple Watch products, each with a different focus. As is traditional for most Apple TV spots, the two Apple Watch ads focus on what the device can do for users' lives and lifestyles. The two new iPhone ads, however, are a bit of a departure in that they talk directly about features and the integration of hardware and software -- a key selling point compared to Apple's chief rival, Android.

Report: iPhone now takes 92 percent of industry's profits

07/13, 2:00pm

Samsung profits wither, all other players take steep losses

Even thought it is thought to account for only a fifth of all smartphone shipments, a new report from Canaccord Genuity on Monday says that Apple's iPhone line now takes a whopping 92 percent of all the profits made in the industry. The new figure is up substantially from a year ago, and in likely equal parts reflects the ongoing popularity of the company's iPhone 6 line along with Samsung's recent financial problems.

Hands On: Incipio NGP case for iPhone 6

07/12, 12:49pm

Slim but good case that adds little to the phone's weight and heft

Who would've thought there would ever be an entire industry based on shaping plastic, rubber and assorted other materials into shapes with big holes in? If an iPhone 6 case is all that survives us, if future archaeologists dig one up from the ground, they are going to concoct some seriously strange ideas of what we were like. Mind you, that's their problem. Ours is that iPhones are expensive, and they can be damaged. One of us just got an iPhone 6, so one of us just got an Incipio NGP case for it.

New iOS 9 beta reveals changes to two-factor authentication, more

07/09, 4:05pm

High-quality cellular music streams, automatic screenshot albums among changes

The latest beta given out to developers (and now the public) for Apple's iOS 9, expected early this fall, has revealed a handful of minor changes and features, along with a significant change in how the company is going to handle two-factor authentication in iOS and OS X going forward. When enabled, two-factor authentication allows users to add and verify new devices (such as iPhones) to be allowed to access a user's established cloud services and syncing. In addition to a previously-announced change to six-digit codes for verification, Apple will be removing the 14-digit Recovery Key option.

Apple has made available public betas for iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan, according to reports. The new software, based on the issue-laden third developer beta released yesterday, is available to users previously registered with the company's Beta Software Program. While the company normally waits until there is a fairly stable developer beta existing before issuing the first public beta, today's releases are fraught with issues and missing functionality.

Analyst says sell-through figures put iPhone at 50 percent share

In a general report full of praise for Apple's smartphone performance and raising stock expectations, Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley has told clients that the sell-through -- as opposed to shipment figures as given by Android makers -- put Apple's iPhone as the top-selling model at all four major US carriers, accounting for half of all smartphone sales. Canaccord is also raising its stock target price for AAPL to $160, maintaining its "buy" rating, and raising earnings-per-share estimates.

NBA star claims iPhone related injury responsible for lower accuracy

07/06, 3:53pm

Free agent Matt Bonner claims larger size of phone induced minor injury

A NBA player is blaming the screen size of Apple's iPhone 6 plus for a persistent arm injury. San Antonio Spurs player Matt Bonner is citing his own experience, as well as that of his training staff for the claim that the larger device necessitating a longer reach across the device as well as changes in use habits is responsible for his tennis elbow-like injury.

Alleged 'iPhone 6s' logic board, case suggest only internal upgrades

07/03, 3:15pm

Next iPhone may sport higher-resolution camera module, more RAM, more

Possibly anticipating continued record sales, Apple has allegedly already begun preliminary production for this fall's anticipated iPhone 6 refresh, with the new models presumably called the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Images of a new alleged motherboard (likely to be legitimate in our view) and casing suggest that the external appearance compared to the current models will change little, and that the next upgrade will focus on internal and software improvements.

Apple gains share in US market, narrows gap with Android

07/03, 12:24pm

Share of iPhone increases by 1.8 percent for second quarter in a row

Matching its performance in the previous quarter, Apple's iPhone again gained nearly two percent market share in the US in the last three months, according to ComScore, widening its lead as the dominant smartphone maker. While Android as a platform continued to hold the top platform position at 52.1 percent, it again suffered an overall decline of 0.7 percent, while iOS surged to 43.5, a 1.8 percent gain matched exactly by losses from Android, Microsoft, and BlackBerry.

It's not even an app. The actual app is OmniFocus 2.5.3 for iOS, it's just when you get that, you get this. Yet the Apple Watch version of OmniFocus is good enough, and complete enough, that you could genuinely use it by itself. You'd be mad to, with the iPhone on your person or two feet away from you, but you could -- and it's a remarkable example of what can be done on the Watch right now.

TaiG updates jailbreak tool to 2.2.0, allows for iOS 8.4 hack

Jailbreak group TaiG has released an iOS 8.4 hack, mere hours after the official Apple release of the new OS. The new software revision uses the same exploit that the group used just days ago for iOS 8.3, allowing users to install the Cydia repository, and other phone software tweaks, at the cost of some device security regarding execution of arbitrary code. The hack requires a Windows PC, iTunes, and the newly released 2.2.0 version of the group's tool.

Review: PWR Case by Prong

06/25, 5:02pm

A battery extender case that gives the user options for charging up.

Ultimately, there's one thing we all want from smartphone accessories; we want options. When it comes to keeping our iPhone charged, we don't always have them. Despite our best efforts, and theirs, not all of our friends have an iPhone like us, nor do we have a smartphone that charges off a micro USB cable as they do; then there's the issue of if we have something to plug into. The PWR Case by Prong gives us the options we crave when it comes to keeping our phone up and running. We'll tell you all about it in our review.

T-Mobile users report spontaneous iPhone rebooting

06/25, 12:56am

Issue may be caused by bad carrier update file, no clear solution yet

T-Mobile customers with some of the latest iPhone models are reporting instances of frequent restarts on their devices running iOS 8. Because the problem appears to be limited to only T-Mobile, the likely culprit is a bad carrier update that is typically pushed to devices "silently," meaning with no user notification. Users have taken to social media sites, as well as T-Mobile help forums and support lines to complain about the issue.

Apple renews exclusive rights to Liquidmetal tech to 2016

Use has been limited to hinges, SIM removal tool thus far

Apple has again renewed its exclusive license -- for the third time in as many years -- for rights to use Liquidmetal Technologies' patented and unique metal alloys, despite the fact that the company has appeared to do little with the technology. The metal alloy, known for its high strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance and ability to be molded into complex or other shapes difficult to achieve with other metals, has been the object of speculation for years.

Even if the number of outlets isn't a problem, who wants to always have to answer the question, "have you seen the iPad?" with the answer, "have you checked the bathroom?" The Satechi Seven-Port Multi Charging Dock is a seven-port charging hub that only takes up one outlet, keeps everything together in a single location, and makes an effort towards the Herculean task of making the rat's nest of cables and devices look nice and neat.

Cook specifically pointed to the gold color option -- first introduced with 2013's iPhone 5s and now expanded to the iPad and new 12-inch Retina MacBook line -- as reflecting in part "the popularity of that color among Chinese users."

Apple fined $647,000 in Taiwan for price-approval requirements

06/17, 5:00pm

Final approval over subsidies, ad content, pricing common in other countries

Apple has lost what is likely to be the first round of a fight between itself and Taiwan's Fair Trade Commission, and has been fined T$20 million ($647,000 US) for anti-competitive phone pricing. Specifically, the Taiwanese FTC said that Apple's customary contractual demand to have final approval on phone pricing, ad content, and subsidies was a violation of Taiwanese law -- which, unlike most countries, gives resellers completely free reign to price smartphones as they wish.

This Pointers tip actually works on most other smartphones as well, we should mention, but our experience in this regard is with the iPhone, so we use that as our example. Most people confuse "unlocking" an iPhone with "jailbreaking" or "rooting" it, and these two concepts could not be more different, in fact. This week, we will explain the chief advantages of unlocking your iPhone, or other smartphone, if its not already, and why you should do it as soon as possible -- even if you never plan to leave your home country.

Adobe: Apple TV doubled share of premium viewing in Q1 2015

06/04, 7:37pm

HBO Now, device price drop credited for vast increase in viewership

Apple TV has overtaken Roku and doubled its share of "premium" (paid) channel viewing the beginning of 2015 and the end of the first quarter, from five percent to 10 percent, according to Adobe's Digital Index report. A price cut on the Apple TV units and the announcement of the $15 per month HBO Now service, alongside a steady stream of new channel additions, may have contributed to the increase, which compares to a one percent growth rate from Roku. Apple's iOS platform also continues to dominate mobile video viewing.

It is true that it's harder to type on the glass of an iPhone or iPad than it is to use a real keyboard with full-size keys that depress under your fingers. You could argue how much harder, as we do get by every day without carting large keyboards around with our iPhones, but it is harder -- and there's one more thing. We don't cart our iPhones around as much as we think: we are often right there with them at our Macs. Our Macs which have keyboards. Now Typeeto 1.0 lets you use that Mac keyboard with your iPhone.
