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.

iPhone 5 release imminent as 4 stock drops

iPhone 5 release imminent as 4 stock drops

Despite the method Apple used for massive iPhone sales at the launch of the iPhone 4S this past year, it appears now that the iPhone 4 will be exiting the show before the iPhone 5 hits shelves later this year. Several companies including Target and RadioShack have initiated a $49.99 sale price for the iPhone 4 with Best Buy joining this party just this week. Searches across several online sources (including Best Buy online) have yielded shows of low or no stock on the phone, this very possibly pointing toward the stock change that will certainly occur once the next-generation iPhone 5 hits shelves.

The number of iOS phones being sold through AT&T and Sprint is greater than the number of Android phones on either carrier, according to Canaccord Genuity analysts. That's a figure that is pretty noteworthy considering there's essentially one iOS smartphone - the iPhone - compared to dozens of Android handsets. Or is it? Perhaps this is more a sign that the iPhone isn't really just a phone anymore - it's an entire product line.

iPhone pricing structure keeps legacy models selling hot says Kantar

This week the analysts at Kantar Worldpanel ComTech have released a study which showed, amongst other smartphone statistics, that the iPhone 4S release's change to Apple's pricing structure has kept the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS at pre-4S sales levels. This study also showed such revelations as the idea that over half of the population in the UK current owns a smartphone of some type and Apple having a massive 29.1% market share while Windows Phone 7 sits at a tiny 2%. While Android's share is unlisted in the study, it does trump Apple - but consider how well the single phone with several iterations (the iPhone) is doing, one must take it all into perspective.

Apple pulls 3G iPads, iPhone 4, more from German online store

Apple has yanked the majority of its 3G-enabled devices from its German online store, including the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2 WiFi + 3G, after Motorola Mobility secured a sales injunction over 3G/UMTS patents. The move, Deutsche Presse-Agentur reports, is a response to a court win back in December 2011, rather than Motorola's permanent injunction success earlier today over a different patent, with the company apparently posting a €100m ($131m) bond to enact the late-2011 ruling.
