Report: Apple has 3 billion reasons for their 16GB iPhone 6

On launch, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were found to offer a base-level 16GB storage. Many wondered why Apple wouldn’t up the entry level storage option to 32GB, but the answer was easy: they want you spending more. The next available option, 64GB, is a $100 premium over the 16GB variant, which blindly encourages you to spend more. How much more? A new report details how Apple may earn $3 billion in 2015 from their internal storage play on consumers.

BlackBerry Classic envy doused with Typo2 for iPhone 6

BlackBerry Classic envy doused with Typo2 for iPhone 6

At CES 2014 we saw the Typo keyboard for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s for the first time. This device is a sort of clip-on for your iPhone that allows you to type with a physical keyboard. Now the company has updated their line to include both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. The company was sued by BlackBerry not long after they showed their keyboard off in a tease before CES - but they went ahead and showed it at the conference anyway. One year later and that suit is still pending - but they're ready to release a second generation despite any potential legal setbacks.

iPhone 6 metal, magnet accessories can mess up OIS, NFC

iPhone 6 metal, magnet accessories can mess up OIS, NFC

Magnets and consumer electronics do not usually mix well, except for a few, well engineered cases. That tenuous relationship between the two seems to be the cause of some reported problems with the Optical Image Stabilization feature on their iPhone 6 Plus, as well as NFC performance on both the iPhone 6 and its larger sibling. And the source of this problem might be that fancy metallic case or magnetic accessory that you have may have just purchased from some reseller off the net.

This year, a professional photographer opted to forgo using a big DSLR camera and fancy lens to capture the White House's Christmas decorations, and instead used an iPhone 6 Plus. As Apple loves to mention at each year's unveiling of a new iPhone, the company's smartphone has become the most popular camera in use today, even finding use in situations where professionals previously would never consider using a mobile device.

iPhone 6 Plus grabs almost half of US phablet market

iPhone 6 Plus grabs almost half of US phablet market

In the three months ending in October this year, the iPhone 6 Plus managed to reach 41 percent of the sales of smartphones with screen sizes 5.5 inches and above, commonly regarded as phablets. This is a rather strange victory for Apple because while it does prove that consumers will flock to their devices no matter how novel or unusual it is, like this biggest iPhone ever, it also proves that there is indeed a market for a device category that the company, especially under Jobs' tenure, has been shunning and even ridiculing.

iPhone 6 allegedly infringes on Chinese OEM design patent

iPhone 6 allegedly infringes on Chinese OEM design patent

In a rather ironic turn of events, it might be Apple who will soon be in trouble for copying someone else's smartphone design, depending on how much weight you put on this claim. Chinese company Digione isn't exactly the most popular in the market, at least when compared to the likes of Xiaomi or OPPO, so it is akin to a David versus Goliath legal battle. And the battle cry is something we've heard before. Supposedly, the iPhone 6 infringes on Digione's patented design for its own 100+ brand.
