This is what the iPhone SE looks like (more than likely)

As we move ever closer to Apple's next live event, the iPhone SE becomes a focus for potential customers looking for a once-again palm-sized smartphone. What you're about to see is a set of images that come from sources who wish to remain anonymous due to the highly volatile nature of the material they present. These images are made for case-makers internationally and appear to be renderings based on leaked components and design charts. The device, as per usual, is iterative, it would seem.

What is a Cyber Pathogen? An FBI invention to defeat Apple

What is a Cyber Pathogen? An FBI invention to defeat Apple

This week the FBI has pulled out all the stops when it comes to getting Apple to unlock their iPhones for court cases. They've invented a term. The term is "Cyber Pathogen." That's not a real thing. They've invented a new term to describe something that cannot possibly be inside the iPhone to convince the government that they absolutely NEED to gain access. It's one hundred percent absurd, for real.

Apple speaks with congress, FBI continues fear-mongering

Apple speaks with congress, FBI continues fear-mongering

This afternoon the FBI and Apple spoke before a congressional panel regarding iPhone encryption. This case has to do with unlocking a singe iPhone, says the FBI, one owned by a San Bernardino shooter. After a New York Magistrate Judge (James Orenstein) ruled against the FBI on compelling Apple to unlock this iPhone, the FBI and Apple went to congress to continue to speak on the issue. Apple's arguments have been straightforward. The FBI's arguments have stacked with fear mongering statements aplenty.

FBI denies Apple case will set precedent

FBI denies Apple case will set precedent

Apple's contends that the FBI's San Bernardino case will have them unlock many phones in the future - the FBI does not agree. FBI Director James Comey spoke with a congressional panel this Thursday, suggesting that Apple's assistance in unlocking the phone of one San Bernardino shooter would not open the doors to future unlocking of devices as such. This situation, he said, was "unlikely to be a trailblazer" for other cases. Apparently Comey had not spoken to the NYPD before the panel.

New iPhone 5se details tipped for Spring release

New iPhone 5se details tipped for Spring release

Apple is tipped to be releasing a new iPhone this spring, well before the traditional timeframe for a smartphone in the company's main line. This device would be called the iPhone 5se, coming with a design that's not entirely unlike the iPhone 6, sized closer to an iPhone 5, and coming with Live Photos to boot. This device would also work with the same cameras as delivered in the iPhone 6 (not the iPhone 6s). This new iPhone would likely fit in place below the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, replacing the ghost of the iPhone 5s in the process.

iPhone 6c leak brings back one classic feature

iPhone 6c leak brings back one classic feature

Today an iPhone 6c has been leaked in the form of a case-maker model that tells details of its exterior. What's most important about this particular leak is its size. This device is not the same size as the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus. Instead, this device has the look of the iPhone 6, but the size of an iPhone 5. This iPhone appears to dismiss the display of the iPhone 6, instead working with the 4-inch display of the iPhone 5! Almost as if such a display size were perfect for the palm of an adult human's hand!

This iPhone 5C saved its owner from a shotgun blast

This iPhone 5C saved its owner from a shotgun blast

There is a growing trend of YouTube videos where recently released mobile devices, like new iPhones and Samsung Galaxies, get shot by weapons such as sniper rifles and shotguns, all while being filmed with precision cameras, allowing us to see the phones break and shatter in super-detailed slow motion. This iPhone 5C might resemble something from those videos, but it wasn't shot for the sake of entertainment. No, it was shot by someone who was trying to murder the owner.

New iPod Touch rumored for late 2015, but low-end iPhone unlikely

New iPod Touch rumored for late 2015, but low-end iPhone unlikely

Now that the Apple Watch has finally been released, the world can begin returning to normal. And with that comes rumors and speculation about Apple's other products. The two latest pieces of information focus on less-promoted devices like the iPod Touch and a cheaper, low-end iPhone successor. The near-forgotten iPod Touch was last updated in October 2012, so even a minor refresh could be welcome, while a followup to 2013's iPhone 5C was absent from last September's iPhone 6 debut.

iPhone 6c with metal back: busted

iPhone 6c with metal back: busted

This morning a rumor flew quick across the Apple-friendly newlines that a new iPhone 5c with metal back was coming on quick. Several photos were included with this "leak", showing how the next iPhone "C" model would toss aside the colorful plastic of old, coming clean with... basically the same metal frame as the higher-end iPhones. Does that make a lot of sense to you? No? Imagine our surprise when a link was shared to the origin of these images - none other than Ali Express, the auction and sales site.

iPhone 6c tipped: keeping the 4-inch display legacy

iPhone 6c tipped: keeping the 4-inch display legacy

Keeping with the three-tiered approach in 2015 through 2016, a leak this week appears to confirm Apple's next lowest-level iPhone, the iPhone 6c. This device would replicate the success of the iPhone 5s with a dual-flash housing while it keeps with the colorful plastic of the iPhone 5c. This device also appears to be coming with a newly expanded double-grill of holes drilled in the base, suggesting there'll be more speaker range in the near future. Of course these speakers will still be pointing downward, not forward.

Phones 4U liquidation may bend Apple’s pricing rules

Phones 4U liquidation may bend Apple’s pricing rules

It would appear that Apple's regular relatively strict controls on pricing for iPhones and iPads will have little to no baring on the liquidation of Phone 4U. This mobile device company was kicked to the curb earlier this year - right before the release of the iPhone 6. In fact the company saw some extra controversy when it was discovered that Phone 4U wouldn't be issuing refunds on iPhone 6 pre-orders. Now we'll go ahead and assume that the owners of Phones 4U either don't expect to work with Apple ever again OR that Apple's rules for sales don't apply to a situation like this.
