BlackBerry Classic envy doused with Typo2 for iPhone 6

At CES 2014 we saw the Typo keyboard for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s for the first time. This device is a sort of clip-on for your iPhone that allows you to type with a physical keyboard. Now the company has updated their line to include both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. The company was sued by BlackBerry not long after they showed their keyboard off in a tease before CES - but they went ahead and showed it at the conference anyway. One year later and that suit is still pending - but they're ready to release a second generation despite any potential legal setbacks.

iPhone 6 metal, magnet accessories can mess up OIS, NFC

iPhone 6 metal, magnet accessories can mess up OIS, NFC

Magnets and consumer electronics do not usually mix well, except for a few, well engineered cases. That tenuous relationship between the two seems to be the cause of some reported problems with the Optical Image Stabilization feature on their iPhone 6 Plus, as well as NFC performance on both the iPhone 6 and its larger sibling. And the source of this problem might be that fancy metallic case or magnetic accessory that you have may have just purchased from some reseller off the net.

iPhone 6 Plus used by White House Christmas photographer

This year, a professional photographer opted to forgo using a big DSLR camera and fancy lens to capture the White House's Christmas decorations, and instead used an iPhone 6 Plus. As Apple loves to mention at each year's unveiling of a new iPhone, the company's smartphone has become the most popular camera in use today, even finding use in situations where professionals previously would never consider using a mobile device.

Your next iPhone could employ tiny gas thrusters

Your next iPhone could employ tiny gas thrusters

Apple Patents aren't always a clear indication of where the company is going in the near future. Most patents listed in the public are done so well after the product has hit the market - not before. Keeping that in mind, Apple's latest listing has some very, very strange implications for the next iPhone - or an iPhone in the distant future, including tiny thrusters and gas canisters inside the smartphone's body that shoot out when the device is in danger of hitting the ground after a long drop.

iPhone 6 allegedly infringes on Chinese OEM design patent

iPhone 6 allegedly infringes on Chinese OEM design patent

In a rather ironic turn of events, it might be Apple who will soon be in trouble for copying someone else's smartphone design, depending on how much weight you put on this claim. Chinese company Digione isn't exactly the most popular in the market, at least when compared to the likes of Xiaomi or OPPO, so it is akin to a David versus Goliath legal battle. And the battle cry is something we've heard before. Supposedly, the iPhone 6 infringes on Digione's patented design for its own 100+ brand.

NVC case offers night vision and backup battery for the iPhone 6

Various smartphone cases are available that bring additional functionality to handsets, and often this extra functionality revolves around photography.

iPhone 6, 6 Plus users are leaving the iPad behind, says Pocket

If you use Pocket, you know how helpful it can be to tuck a webpage away for later viewing. Whether it be a long-form article or just something you don’t have time for, the ability to save for later is handy. In attempting to better understand their users, Pocket began analyzing how we consume via their service. Comparing iPads to iPhones, both new and not-so-new, Pocket found something that’s a bit unsurprising, but also proves a point: we read and watch more when using larger iPhones.
