Accessory vendor Spigen has created renderings of a work-in-progress case that it designed for Apple’s upcoming ‘iPhone SE’. Spigen often has some of the first cases available for new iOS devices so assuming they know what they’re doing here, it could be concluded that the upcoming iPhone SE might be virtually indistinguishable from the iPhone 5s.
The rumor-mill is in disagreement over the design of the iPhone SE, with one camp claiming the handset is basically a four-inch iPhone with an iPhone 6/6s-like case and the other insisting the device will feature an iPhone 5s-like look and feel.
Apple’s upcoming four-inch ‘iPhone SE’ will cost between $300 and $400 in the United States, it will have a twelve-megapixel camera on the back rather than an eight-megapixel shooter, as previously rumored, and is entering mass production soon. Moreover, the existing iPhone 5s is slated to be discounted by fifty percent.
That’s the gist of a note KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo sent to clients, a copy of which was obtained by AppleInsider.
China-based Beaver Electronics Co. recently unveiled a reasonably priced portable juice pack with buttonless design that after 15 minute of fast-charging holds enough juice to fully recharge an iPhone 5s. In fact, the Quarter recharges any mobile device via USB.
Surprisingly, through its built-in MagSafe 2 port the Quarter charging its 5,000mAh internal battery via the MacBook’s MagSafe wall charger takes under an hour. The company kindly provided me a review unit that I tested out over the past week, here’re my impressions.
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.
As of today, it’s now possible to share slow-motion videos using Twitter’s iPhone and iPad app, the micro-blogging service announced in a tweet. The feature has been enabled via a silent backend update so there’s no need to update Twitter’s iOS app.
The ability to upload and share slow-motion videos entails both footage captured in 120 frames per second on your iPhone 5s and higher frame-rate videos at 240 frames per second recorded on the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
An iPhone smuggler was caught by Chinese authorities trying to making his way through customs with 94 iPhones strapped to his body. He had a “weird walking posture, joint stiffness, muscle tension” that caused authorities to become concerned.
There are tweaks that exist on Cydia that allow you to secure an entire app, but to my knowledge, no tweak yet exists that allows you to secure specific aspects of the stock Photos app with Touch ID. That’s where Photego comes in, a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to prevent users from deleting photos, accessing albums, and more via Touch ID.
If you live in the UK and have been wanting to get your hands on some killer Apple deals, now may be your chance. UK retailer Phones4U is entering administration – aka bankruptcy – and as a result is liquidating its entire stock of products, including iPhones, iPads, and Beats headphones.
Where do I even begin talking about selfies? Everyone loves a good selfie. They are wildly popular across the world, even causing South Korea to ban “unregulated” selfie stick sales. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, SnapChat, and other forms of popular social media channels are completely filled with selfies. What caused our self obsession will never be explained, but the selfie is here to stay.
The selfie stick was one of the first hardware selfie assistants. I saw them around touristy places when I traveled, but didn’t think much of them about a year ago. Now, they are increasingly popular and being utilized in everyday places. Several iterations of selfie-inspired accessories cropped up and iLuv is capitalizing on the fad. Launching “selfy,” iLuv guarantees you will always have a quick way to snap a selfie and includes a laundry list of add-ons to assist.
Apple is working on a new 4-inch iPhone model for next year, according to website G for Games. Citing sources in the Asian supply chain, the site says the Cupertino firm is aiming to release the smaller form factor device in the second half of 2015.
If true, the move would bring one-handed usability back to the iPhone line—a benefit that Apple frequently touted in previous years, but essentially abandoned in September when it introduced the new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch 6 Plus.
