My iPhone 7 Wishlist in 3 parts (Not Just Android)

My iPhone 7 Wishlist in 3 parts (Not Just Android)

Today in light of the surprising lack of iPhone leaks and relative deluge of details we've seen unofficially so far, I'd like to share what I'm hopeful for in a new iPhone. The next iPhone, one we'll safely assume will be called iPhone 7, will be a device - I hope - of unparalleled processing power and battery life. It'll have a better camera and a slightly modified body, and of course it'll have a display that's better than before. But what's more than that, most important to me - it'll have a little more freedom.

AmpMe pairs iPhone with Android – and it’s amazing

AmpMe pairs iPhone with Android – and it’s amazing

The app AmpMe isn't strictly new - it's been around since last fall - but it's just gotten YouTube integration and therefore has become a monster. This app works on iPhone and Android - each platform just as well as the other - and it's basically magical. If you were looking for a reason not to toss your old smartphone from 6 years ago in the garbage (for whatever reason), here it is - every smartphone in the room can become one speaker system wirelessly, without hassle.

Apple must sell locally-sourced goods to sell iPhones in India

Apple must sell locally-sourced goods to sell iPhones in India

China and India are today considered to be the largest and fastest growing smartphone markets outside the US, but both have their own quirks that are preventing Apple from gaining a solid foothold. While China's restrictive regime and censorship has Cupertino's digital content services in limbo, India's economical policies are proving to be a stumbling block to selling iPhones and iPads directly. A senior government official revealed that Apple, like other foreign companies, must sell at least 30% locally sourced goods if it wants to set up shop in India.

Apple needs to make a Chromebook

Apple needs to make a Chromebook

Why would Apple consider adopting a hardware and software model similar to Google's ChromeOS for an Apple Chromebook? Would that be absolute madness? Or would Apple be smart to make use of the ecosystems of apps it already has in place in new and interesting ways? We've not yet seen Google's newest move with ChromeOS take shape in the wild, it's clear that there's some real interest in adopting - nay, accepting - apps made for Android coming to a desktop environment. Now is the time when Apple should open the path from mobile to laptop.

O6 rotary controller frees your eyes, lets your fingers do the work

O6 rotary controller frees your eyes, lets your fingers do the work

While we spend a lot of time on our smartphones, a good majority of the actions we do usually require no more than a few seconds of tapping. Those, however, require us to look at the screen, even for a short while, which can sometimes be dangerous. Voice control tries to mitigate that, but not all actions, or voices for that matter, can be accommodated. That is why Fingertips Lab, a company formed by former GM Innovation head P.K. Mishra, is introducing O6 ("oh-six"), a wireless rotary controller that lets your fingers do the talking, leaving your eyes free from distraction and keeping you out of danger.

iPhone 7 confusion continues: schematics, back panel leaked

iPhone 7 confusion continues: schematics, back panel leaked

Leaks are sometimes what they are, just leaks. Sometimes, however, they also represent some wishful thinking. That may perhaps be the cause of much of the conflicting information and dumps we've been getting around the iPhone 7, which is shaping up to be a more interesting smartphone more for its leaks than its actual expected features. In this latest batch from two different sources, we see some confirmation of the camera placements for both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as well as a noticeable lack of smart connectors.

Apple hit with patent suit because iPhones are phones

Apple hit with patent suit because iPhones are phones

Patent trolls are nothing new. They may have even existed as long as it became profitable to sue people for patent infringement. Of late, however, they have increased in their aggressiveness and boldness, whether out of desperation or out of greed. Case in point this latest patent lawsuit levied upon Apple by a Texas company named Corydoras Technologies, LLC. Its beef is that all of Apple's iPhones, and some of its iPads, can make calls, take selfies, do video chats, and block incoming calls. Practically what makes a smartphone a smartphone.

Leaked iPhone 7 casing suggests 4 speakers, larger camera

Leaked iPhone 7 casing suggests 4 speakers, larger camera

Given how we're still quite far away from Apple's usual September affair, it's no surprise that the iPhone 7 rumors that keep piling up don't always stack up with one another, nor do they always make sense. While some of the more "wild" speculation have been offloaded to the iPhone 7 Plus, or Pro, this latest batch of photos give the regular iPhone 7 something crazy of its own. Allegedly from an Italian accessory maker, the photos show the back case of the iPhone 7 bearing four speakers and a vertically stacked camera and flash arrangement.

iPhone 7 part leaks reveal dual-cameras, up to 256GB of storage

iPhone 7 fever is beginning to escalate, as more and more leaks and rumors begin to pour out. The latest news comes in the form of a part leak that reveals a dual-camera module, which, if authentic, confirms several months of rumors about the larger iPhone 7 Plus (or the iPhone 7 Pro) featuring such a camera layout. Photos of the parts, which were posted to Chinese site Weibo, also show a storage option of 256GB.

Android starts to Tango as iPhone potential wanes

Android starts to Tango as iPhone potential wanes

While Apple's next iPhone seems to show little potential for great change, Google announces Android software integration with one of their most forward-thinking projects ever: Tango. Apple has built a massive consumer following with the idea that their iPhone is reliable, secure, and ubiquitous - unavoidably present in the public eye. Google, on the other hand, creates the software that manufacturers of all sorts then use to create their own, unique smartphones. This week, Google announced that they'd be adding Tango software to the next version of Android. This could change the public's expectations for a great smartphone entirely.
