Smartphone Shipments leveling out: everyone already has one

Smartphone Shipments leveling out: everyone already has one

A smartphone unit shipments report released today suggests that basically everyone in the world who wants a smartphone already has one. This week Mary Meeker from VIA Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers have released her annual Internet Trends report for 2016, showing - in the process - how growth has slowed in smartphone unit shipments. This does not mean end sales, mind you, just shipments from manufacturing plants to distributors. This is not sales - but it's certainly indicative of some interestingly dire trends.

Galaxy Note 5 beats all other phones in customer satisfaction index

Today the ACSI Telecommunications Report 2016 has revealed consumer satisfaction in smartphones in the United States. This American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) report is run on "interviews with roughly 70,000 customers annually", asking questions about customer satisfaction in brands including Apple, Motorola, Samsung, LG, HTC, and more.

You might be surprised who holds the number 4 spot - it's not a phone released this year, nor last year, believe it or not.

Apple external display out of stock, replacement tipped for 5k resolution

Apple has been peddling the current external Thunderbolt display for a good long time now and many find the aging product to be lacking compared to other offerings on the market today. Word is that stock of the current external display is getting very low in most locations and there is no sign that stock will be replenished. Often when product stock gets low, it's a very good indication that Apple has a replacement planned.

Why I refuse to believe iPhone is forever

Why I refuse to believe iPhone is forever

Over the past several years, I've seen attitudes change when it comes to the iPhone and the mobile world in general. I refer mainly to two groups of people whose understanding of the world tends to reflect society at large, especially when it comes to technology. People who I meet at gas stations on long trips are part of one group - the other is my extended family. According to them, things are changing. Or they have the potential to change.

iPhone 7’s key details leaked in Taiwan

iPhone 7’s key details leaked in Taiwan

Today the full run-down of key iPhone 7 features appears to have leaked, including specifications and appearance. This includes a refresh that's not entirely all-new - in fact it aligns rather well with the report we released yesterday, one in which we speak about a 3-year cycle for Apple instead of their standard 2-year cycle. It could be 2017 before we see an OLED panel on an iPhone. For now, simplicity. For now - another very iPhone 6-looking design.

The Apple TV will never come to Amazon, here’s why

The Apple TV will never come to Amazon, here’s why

These days it seems like you can buy almost anything from Amazon. It doesn't seem to matter who the manufacturer is, if it's sold in stores, it's also on Amazon. There's just one strange little exception to that rule. You won't find the Apple TV for sale on the site. Not even from third-party sellers.

MacBook Pro spy photos hint at OLED touch strip, no MagSafe

MacBook Pro spy photos hint at OLED touch strip, no MagSafe

It's been a while since Apple made any huge change to its MacBook Pro line but the upcoming new model might prove to be the most controversial, or at least most talked about, one. Aside from the usual internal updates, like processor or RAM, rumors point to equally substantial new features on the outside of the MacBook Pro. A fresh batch of leaked photos of the alleged cutouts for the new notebook confirm the rumored OLED touch display strip above the keyboard. But they also reveal other changes that might not sit well with everyone, like the removal of MagSafe charging and full-sized USB ports.

Major details: iPhone 7 cycle change means minor release

Major details: iPhone 7 cycle change means minor release

Sources this morning suggest that the next "major" upgrade for the iPhone won't be in 2016, as expected, but pushed to 2017. While there will still be a release this year - a new iPhone or two, that is - Japanese newspaper Nikkei reports that the so-called "iPhone 7" won't be the company's big upgrade as every other year generally holds. This works out with earlier reports of the new iPhones this year looking extremely similar to their predecessors. This could be Samsung's big chance to pull out and ahead of Apple with the Galaxy Note 6, instead of the other way around.

Use your iPhone cable to charge your 3DS with this adapter

Use your iPhone cable to charge your 3DS with this adapter

When you have a smartphone that need recharged at least every night, you tend to carry around something to charge it with. That's why I keep a spare Lightning cable in my bag, and one in the car. But what happens when you want to charge something else, like your 3DS? Well, if all you have is a Lightning cable, then you'll soon be in luck.

First iPhone 7 Lightning to 3.5mm adapters spotted in the wild

It's long been rumored that the iPhone 7 will be losing a big feature when Apple announces it later this year. It may prove one of the most controversial changes that the company has made to the smartphone, as people have already been up in arms about it. After all, nearly every pair of headphones uses a 3.5mm jack, so what will customers do if Apple takes that port away?
