T-Mobile’s outspoken CEO John Legere confirmed today on Twitter that his company will be offering an iPhone 6s beginning Friday for as low as $5, $10 or $15 per month, depending on the model being purchased and older iPhone traded in, through its JUMP! On Demand device upgrade program. The lowest $5 per month pricing entails an iPhone 6 trade in, while buying a new iPhone 6s for $10 per month requires trading in your iPhone 5s.
Customers can take advantage of this offer even if they have already pre-ordered their device with a trade-in. Leggier conformed in another tweet that pre-orders of new iPhones at T-Mobile are up thirty percent versus the previous year.
Sure, you can plug your iPhone into any old USB adapter and throw it on the table (or couch arm or floor) and it won’t matter what position it is in while charging. But, if you want your iPhone on display while it charges, you’ll want to look into a dock.
Belkin makes a minimalist style charging dock that takes up very little space on your desktop while it provides the juice you need to get your battery to 100 percent.
A thorough analysis of a much improved screen utilized on Apple’s fourth-generation iPad mini conducted by DisplayMate has determined that the tablet’s display technology is comparable to the iPad Air 2, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The long story short, its screen has richer colors and better color accuracy with a 36 percent better reflectance versus the iPad Air 2 for improved readability.
The iPhone 6 screen has a certain smoothness that is hard to replicate and is easily ruined by a basic screen protector. However, some of us are more worried about diminishing the resale value of our iPhones with scratches. So, a screen protector is a must-have for us.
JETech makes a tempered glass screen protector for the iPhone 6 that offers protection from scratches and is smooth like the iPhone 6’s screen for a more natural feel.
Sure, your iPhone 6 has a fantastic camera that allows you to take some incredible photos and videos. As long as you have a steady hand, you can take some breathtaking panoramas of a beach sunset.
Square Jellyfish has a metal, spring-loaded tripod mount that makes photography on your iPhone 6 even better. Attach it to any tripod for quick and easy steady shots. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket, but strong enough to fit the largest of smartphones.
This year’s iPhones, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, are heavier than last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models and it’s not just due to their stronger Series 7000 aluminum body.
An article posted Monday by The Verge digs a little deeper into the iPhone 6s weight gain and you’ll be surprised to learn which new feature is making Apple’s new phones heavier than their predecessors.
Apple this morning confirmed in a statement issued to CNBC that its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are “on pace” to beat the ten million pre-order record established during last year’s first-weekend sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The number flies in the face of many clueless analysts who said Apple wouldn’t be able to hit that number this time around because the iPhone has peaked.
Interestingly enough, Apple touted “exceptionally strong” pre-orders for the larger-screened and more expensive 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus, with the initial stock sold out globally.
The company did not announce opening weekend iPhone 6s sales at the time of this writing but we’re expecting them to announce the new record via a press release shortly.
You’ve probably contemplated getting a special wide-angle, fisheye, or macro lens for your iPhone 6, but don’t want to spend a bunch of money, only to be disappointed with the results. What if you could invest in a lens kit for the same price as a fast food lunch?
The VicTsing 3-in-1 lens kit comes with a 180 degree fisheye lens, a 0.65x wide-angle lens, and a macro lens so you can experiment with your iPhone photography hobby. The price is so low that you can invest in something new without breaking the bank.
Considering the amount of people who have asked us if their cases will be compatible with the new phones, it’s worth underscoring that Apple’s own case lineup for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will indeed fit the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and vice versa.
As iDownloadBlog reader Adam Baligian observed on Twitter, Apple’s own iPhone 6s Accessories webpage states that existing cases “fit snugly and your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6 still feels incredibly slim,” even with the case on.
If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, and prefer the color gold, you’re going to have to spring for the new iPhone 6s (or its larger sibling). The gold version of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus disappeared from Apple’s website this afternoon, and the company has confirmed with The Verge that its older handsets are no longer available in the color.
As of today’s big launch announcement, Apple now has four really powerful smartphones in its lineup, not including the entry-level iPhone 5s. At the lower end of the totem poll, there’s the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. At the top of the lineup are the just-announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
How do all of these devices compare? What about things like battery life, size, and weight? In this comparison post, I’ll breakdown the differences between each of Apple’s iPhone offerings.
