Large iPad Pro delay foreseen due to display supply issues

If you're one of those eagerly waiting to get your hands on the rumored big size iPad Pro, sorry to douse cold water on your excitement, but that might not happen until later this year. Sources are saying that, instead of a Q1 or Q2 announcement of this strange tablet, Apple is forced to push it to its usual September fare. This is mostly due to the fact that its display panel suppliers, some of the top in the industry, are hitting a market slump.

Shot on iPhone 6 puts users’ photos on billboards and ads

Although smartphones have been getting camera sensors in increasing megapixel sizes, we've been saying time and again that it isn't all about the number of pixels.

But instead of preaching that itself, it is letting users do the talking. With Shot on iPhone 6, the company is highlighting 57 some of the best and most creative works that come from users' own smartphones.

iPhone no longer available from Virgin Mobile

It was probably a long time coming, but Virgin Mobile USA officially no longer offers any model from Apple's iPhone lineup. The Sprint subsidiary stated it had no plans to offer the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus shortly after their release, however they used to offer the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 4S.

DeLorean case brings your iPhone 6 back to the future

The Back to the Future series has inspired many a scientific and engineering quest, from hoverboards, to self-lacing shoes, to, of course, the time traveling DeLorean.

To mark the timeline of the second movie, which takes place in 2015, toy maker Bandai is coming out with a new case for the iPhone 6 that encloses the smartphone inside the iconic car.

Apple awarded patent for iPhone headset ala Gear VR

Apple awarded patent for iPhone headset ala Gear VR

It seems like almost everyone is getting on the VR trend these days. Surprisingly, even Apple seems to be game, or at least considered the possibility. The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) just granted Cupertino a patent for a "Head-Mounted Display Apparatus for Retaining a Portable Electronic Device with Display". Or to keep it short, a Samsung Gear VR-like accessory but powered by the iPhone instead. Is Apple now jumping on the virtual reality bandwagon? Probably not yet, but at least the legal groundwork has been established.

Apple Watch seen to be a marketing challenge for Apple

Apple Watch seen to be a marketing challenge for Apple

In about two months, we will finally be seeing the Apple Watch in the retail market. And while there is little doubt that it will sell well like any product Apple puts out, there seems to be some reservations about whether Apple will be able to answer the greatest question of them all. What is the Apple Watch, and smartwatches in general, for? Cupertino's spin on that is likely to set the tone for the smartwatch and perhaps all smartwatches in general, and some are saying that the company might already be at a loss for words.

Inside the charming indie movie filmed entirely with iPhone 6

If you still needed convincing that smartphone cameras are more than capable of professional results, "Romance in NYC" may do the trick. Shot not only entirely from the a single character's point of view, but using nothing more than an iPhone 6 and a selection of apps and accessories, the 15 minute short was crowdfunded on Kickstarter in late 2014 and is now making the rounds of the festival circuit. I caught up with director Tristan Pope to find out what made him put down his pro-camera kit for a smartphone, how the iPhone 6 delivered in unexpected ways, and why he ended up wearing a GorillaPod like a Hannibal Lecter mask.

Apple’s Grammy’s ad paints the iPad as a musical virtuoso

If you're given an ad spot in the music industry's biggest award night, you will most likely link it to some musical product. But if your business isn't directly related to that, then you'll have to settle for the next best thing: apps.
