The company that brought an accusation of patent infringement against Apple may not be in the phone manufacturing business anymore, according to a report. Shenzhen Baili, the entity which successfully got the Beijing Intellectual Property Office to put a ban on the iPhone 6 in the country, is believed to be no longer in operation, with an investigation claiming the smartphone producer "barely exists."
Apple has become the subject of another bout of litigation, this time one relating to the iPhone 6 in China. A small Chinese smartphone producer called Baili has complained to the Beijing Intellectual Property Office, claiming consumers cannot tell the "minute differences" between the 100C Android smartphone and the design Apple employed for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, with the regulator ordering a ban of the offending iPhones from sale in the market.
We belong in the camp that says the best iPhone case is the AppleCare insurance program. For we love the feel of the phone without anything getting in the way. Unfortunately, whatever you may feel about cases, there are jobs where they are a practical necessity. If you have a job in, say, construction -- or maybe you spend your day running around a hospital, then the OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone 6/6s is startlingly strong, and surprisingly cheap.
Once again, US law enforcement is using the All Writs Act to force compliance, and a man's refusal to obey has landed him behind bars for seven months, with no other formal charges. Formal Philadelphia, Pennsylvania police officer Francis Rawls is being held for contempt of court for failure to comply with an All Writs Act order, mandating that he successfully provide the decryption password for two external hard drives secured with Apple's FileVault 2.
In part one of our feature pitting the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge against the iPhone 6s Plus, we took a look at the design, displays and performance of the two devices. Although the Galaxy S7 Edge has arguably the better design aesthetic when compared with the iPhone 6s Plus, its vaunted double-curved edge display has questionable practical value. Similarly, the S7 Edge's excellent high resolution quad-HD display offers a great VR experience, thanks to its additional pixel density -- but in general use, the still-decent 1080p resolution of the iPhone 6s Plus is going to deliver much better overall efficiency and frame rates in games. Samsung might have also taken a lead in multi-core performance, but the iPhone still has an substantial advantage in the key single-core performance metric. So how do the two stack up when it comes to cameras, software, ecosystems and the overall end-to-end user experience?
The iPhone 6 and 6s are attractive phones, and we don't think that anyone here would disagree with that. They are, however, also rather expensive phones -- which means that chances are, you're going to want to cover up your phone with a protective case. Instead of slapping on some bulky, ugly case, why not try the Clic 360, a case designed with both protection and style in mind.
The company thought to have beaten the encryption of the iPhone 5c, in order to help the FBI's investigation into the San Bernardino attack, is apparently "optimistic" it can do the same for the iPhone 6. Cellebrite, an Israeli forensics firm, is attempting to help an Italian architect see the photographs of his deceased son stored on a locked iPhone 6, and has reportedly advised the father that there's a chance the images can be accessed successfully.
Today we take a look at another rugged case for the iPhone 6/6s, a case that attempts to be super strong without all the extra bulk that other cases feature. It's called the X-Doria Defense Shield, and here's how it stands up against other cases we've tested.
You may have noticed that we seem to pick on protective cases quite a bit in these parts, talking about how difficult it is to cope with their bulk. Fortunately, Griffin has sought to solve that problem with a rugged case that combats the bulk while still protecting your precious iPhone. We got our hands on a Survivor Slim, and took it for a spin to see how it holds up against other cases we've liked.
So you're looking for a case that features a sleek design to accent your iPhone, we get that. You want something that's every bit as elegant as your phone, something that is going to complement it, not hide it. That's why we're taking the chance to talk about a new line of cases we checked out, a set of six Alto iPhone 6/6s cases that feature real, vegetable-tanned Italian leather.
