Gold and Silver iPhone 5c appear in Japan

Supposing you saw the opportunity in the iPhone 5c to change out the back of the smartphone for a custom cover, you'll be glad to know that Japan's customization shops are now in full swing. While the images before you may seem to be bringing on the next Gold and Silver generation of the iPhone 5c, what you're actually seeing are a set of custom-fitted jobs from a shop that makes it its business to bring the brightest and the oddest in iPhone covers to the planet.

iPhone 5s 64-bit processor “front end of a long roadmap” says Tim Cook

Apple's 4th quarter earnings report here in 2013 had mention of the best of said quarters for iPhones sold in the history of the company - but even that didn't sway one user from asking Apple CEO Tim Cook what the benefits were for the newest set of features for the iPhone 5s over the previous generation. The question itself centered on the iPhone 5s' A7 chip, the motion coprocessor, and the new Touch ID fingerprint sensor, inquiring what Apple had to say to investors that simply did not see the benefit in these features in the short run.

iPhone 5s outselling 5c 2-to-1 tip analysts as orders slashed

Apple's iPhone 5s is outselling the cheaper iPhone 5c by more than two to one, market watchers estimate, amid reports that the Cupertino firm has slashed production of the plastic-bodied model. Demand for the iPhone 5c, which replaced the iPhone 4S at the $99-on-contract price point, has fallen significantly short of Apple's expectations, it's claimed, and while the two new handsets set sales records in the opening weekend of availability, the bulk of that interest is believed to be around the iPhone 5s.

Apple RED contributions applauded by Bono as “leading the crew”

When you've got a company that sells products as successfully as Apple, there's a good chance a group like RED comes knocking at your door at some point or another. For Apple, that time came quite a few years ago - and here in 2013, RED spokesperson Bono has given Apple a round of applause on raising "over $65 million" in the group's efforts to fight AIDS. Bono thanked the company at the 2013 edition of the Clinton Global Initiative this week.

iPhone 5S vs 5C vs 4S: battle for iOS 7 supremacy

iPhone 5S vs 5C vs 4S: battle for iOS 7 supremacy

As of this week, Apple has discontinued the iPhone 5 entirely, focusing instead on the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C, and the iPhone 4S. While it was widely expected that Apple would take the smaller display of the iPhone 4S out of the equation entirely, it would seem instead that the company opted for ease in differentiation between models. It's a whole heck of a lot more difficult to sell an iPhone 5S when you've got a nearly identical-looking iPhone 5 sitting on the shelf for a lower price, after all.

iOS 7 device compatibility chart unveils iPad aesthetics

As the iOS 7 user interface was revealed this month, users made quick assumptions about what the next-generation software would look like on the tablets of the Apple mobile family. As the software was, at first, only shown on the iPhone 5 during Apple's developers conference WWDC 2013, it became rather quickly an often, asked question: what would iOS 7 look like on devices Apple guaranteed would be attaching it to?
