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.

Pinć VR tries to use your iPhone 6 for virtual reality

If you thought that only the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the LG G3 are the only ones that can have their virtual reality fun, it might be time to think again. Cordon Media, a company that, according to its profile, specializes in creating immersive and futuristic interfaces, is looking to use the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to power its own take on the virtual reality headset. But Pinć, pronounced as "pinch", is more ambitious than anything you've seen or heard about, trying to put you inside your smartphone itself.

iPhone 6 for Christmas? You and 56.7m others says analyst

iPhone 6 for Christmas? You and 56.7m others says analyst

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales will spike dramatically to more than 56.7m units, one analyst has predicted, though there may be a post-New-Year hangover in early 2015 when demand drops considerably. Apple's smaller of the two flagship smartphones will lead the charge, KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo suggests in a recently issued report to investors, expected to amount to almost 60-percent of all iPhone sales in Q4 2014 and help drive a quarter-on-quarter increase of 82-percent. The iPhone 6 Plus will also play a not-insignificant part, but there are a couple of factors which may hold it back.

Huawei Honor 6 Plus shows up at TENAA with two rear cameras

After just unveiling the Ascend Mate7 last September, it seems that Huawei is gearing up for yet another smartphone launch, at least based on this TENAA sighting and a teaser for the company's own Weibo account. This time, however, it won't be much of a big jump as it is a spinoff from the Chinese OEM's existing Honor 6 smartphone. But this Huawei Honor 6 Plus isn't a simple upgrade. Implied from the name, this upcoming phablet takes a few cues from Huawei's competitors in the market.
