iPhone trade-in program launching at Apple retail today [UPDATE: official statement]

It's been confirmed this morning that Apple retail stores will be launching their first iPhone trade-in program today. This program will allow iPhone owners to bring in gently used iPhones to Apple retail locations to receive credit at the Apple store that'll be good for use in purchase of a new iPhone model. This trade-in program is said to be good only with a new cellular contract in-hand - that is, you can't just head in to an Apple store and expect to leave with an Apple gift card.

iPhone 5 in multi-colored plastic predicted in Apple 2013 roadmap

iPhone 5 in multi-colored plastic predicted in Apple 2013 roadmap

This week KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a projected roadmap of Apple products spanning the next 12 months, this map including no less than an iPhone 5S and a new iteration of the iPhone 5, complete with plastic casing. While an actual "official" leaked roadmap as such leaked from Apple would be a first sign of the apocalypse, we're ready and willing to have a peek at this possible vision for the future, especially given the relatively good future foretelling we've seen come from Kuo specifically in the past.

Apple wins iPhone and iPad delay of ban in South Korea

Apple wins iPhone and iPad delay of ban in South Korea

Though it seemed as though Apple had lost a battle against Samsung earlier this year with a ban of both the iPad and the iPhone in South Korea, an update has been made today by the court that the defending party will be able to keep items for sale pending appeal. This event is rather similar to the situation currently happening in the USA with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, also placed back up for sale pending appeal in a completely Apple vs Samsung case. This case in South Korea had the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, and iPad 2 banned from sale due to Samsung connectivity patents.

iPhone 5 launch reportedly marks the end of iPhone 3GS

iPhone 5 launch reportedly marks the end of iPhone 3GS

With the reveal of the iPhone 5 now less than a week away, Apple is reportedly taking a look at the devices it has on offer and deciding where to make cuts. The Telegraph is reporting that once the iPhone 5 is on the scene, Apple will stop offering the iPhone 3GS altogether. The iPhone 3GS is currently being offered for free with a two-year contract agreement and has been around since 2009, so it makes sense that Apple would want to drop it once the iPhone 5 has been announced.

Samsung scores 3G patent win over Apple: Seeks compensation

Samsung has secured a win against Apple in The Hague, with the Dutch court ruling that older iPhones and iPads contravene a 3G patent held by the Korean company. Although Samsung's earlier attempts to have the products - which include the iPad 2 and iPhone 4, though not the latest iPhone 4S and new iPad - blocked from sale were rejected, the company says it will now use this ruling to obtain compensation for the infringement from Apple.

Apple details iOS 6 limits: no FaceTime 3G for iPhone 3GS/4

Apple couldn't resist a brief jibe at Android over how many users have Ice Cream Sandwich, but the company has quietly admitted that while iPhone 3GS and 4 owners will get iOS 6, they won't get all the features. In the freshly posted small-print on the iOS 6 preview page, Apple confirmed that much-anticipated functionality like FaceTime over cellular would be limited to the iPhone 4S and new iPad, while 3GS owners would also miss out on Shared Photo Streams.
