Apple faces class action lawsuit over failing iPhone 6 touch screens

Apple faces class action lawsuit over failing iPhone 6 touch screens

It looks like the touch screen problems plaguing the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may get some attention from Apple whether the company likes it or not. A group of disgruntled customers have filed a class action complaint against the iPhone maker in a California US District Court and are demanding a jury trial, alleging that Apple has committed fraud by selling the iPhones and refusing to fix out-of-warranty devices when the touch screen issues rear their ugly head.

iPhone 6, 6 Plus suddenly plagued by touch screen issues

iPhone 6, 6 Plus suddenly plagued by touch screen issues

When the iPhone 7 comes around, some iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners might find themselves upgrading to that, or to an iPhone 6s/6s Plus equivalent, albeit very begrudgingly. That’s because it will be a forced upgrade brought about by an affliction that is suddenly hinting iPhone 6, especially iPhone 6 Plus, owners really hard recently. Called the “Touch Disease”, the issue includes a flickering strip of grey at the top of the display, eventually ending up with a totally unresponsive touch screen, and, therefore, a useless iPhone.

iPhone 7 release date nears as new video details Plus

iPhone 7 release date nears as new video details Plus

Apple's iPhone 7 - as we assume it'll be called - grows ever nearer to its release date, and all along its path are littered leaks. What we're seeing today is a video which shows mock-ups (really, really good mock-ups) of the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Pro, and iPhone 6s. This video hypothesizes the idea that there could just be an iPhone 6 SE - much like we've seen with the iPhone SE on the market today, using the body of the iPhone 4 and the brains of the iPhone 6. Three different colors are also shown.

Goal Zero Nomad Folio joins OtterBox uniVERSE case system

Goal Zero Nomad Folio joins OtterBox uniVERSE case system

Last May, OtterBox, a leader in rugged smartphone cases, introduced a rather intriguing idea. A rugged iPhone case, of course, that can be extended with different sorts of attachments. A pseudo modular smartphone system, if you will. One of those to first jump into that OtterBox uniVERSE was Goal Zero with its Slide Battery. And now, in addition to finally launching that attachment, it is adding yet another member to the team, the Nomad Folio cover that adds a dash of renewable solar energy to your portable battery needs.

iPhone 7 detailed in four colors

Release day is coming for the iPhone 7 - not necessarily soon, but it's certainly on its way - and with it, a variety of new colors for the Apple flagship. Today we've got images of four colors for the next smartphone from the fruit company, one that suggests two shades of gray, the other that suggests one gray and one blue. Both images suggest that both Gold and Rose Gold are locks for the next device - for the smaller version, anyway.

It’s not too late to get started with Pokemon GO

It’s not too late to get started with Pokemon GO

Whether you're reading this when it's first published or a few years down the line, it's not too late to start playing Pokemon GO. This game quickly became the most-played mobile game in the history of mobile games, handily overtaking Candy Crush Saga, Draw Something, and Clash Royale in peak daily active users just a few days after launch. Despite this, users thinking they've missed the boat needn't worry. This game isn't one a new user can get behind in irredeemably.

Galaxy Note 7 secret detail to out-thin iPhone 7

Galaxy Note 7 secret detail to out-thin iPhone 7

The secret weapon of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 may have been revealed in an analyst column sent out to industry officials in Korea just this past week. The appearance of "Y-OCTA", a technology that Samsung will have been developing for several years at least, nearly went without notice. A publication by the name of KIPOST, or The Korea Industry Post, revealed that Samsung would first apply this technology on the Galaxy Note sequel (called that due to Samsung not having revealed the name until just yesterday).

iPhone 7 detailed in black looks gorgeous

iPhone 7 detailed in black looks gorgeous

A set of iPhone 7 images have surfaced with the device coming in a deep (matte) black. These images come from Martin Hajek, an extremely skilled illustrator and 3D model-maker. He's known for taking specifications and blueprints from case-makers before the launch of products (especially Apple products) and turning them into 3D models that look so extremely realistic, it's difficult to tell the difference between what's real and what's not. These images show a rendering of the iPhone 7 (as we know it through leaks and rumors today) and the iPhone 6 or 6s.

SanDisk iXpand Memory Case lets your iPhone 6 remember more

SanDisk iXpand Memory Case lets your iPhone 6 remember more

The debate over whether microSD card slots are essential or not still goes on for some people and OEMs. But considering Apple refuses to let go of its 16 GB baseline models, for some iPhone users, additional storage is not just a luxury but a necessity. Being an iPhone, of course you're normally out of luck. Unless you get one of SanDisk's new iXpand Memory Cases which, as you might have guessed, lets you have the semblance of external storage on your iPhone 6 or 6s. Plus it protects your premium looking and priced smartphone, too!

iPhone 6 almost banned in China via barely existing company

iPhone 6 almost banned in China via barely existing company

Over the weekend, Apple was almost dealt a fatal blow in China. The Beijing Intellectual Patent Office ruled that Apple's iPhone 6 infringed on patents held by a certain company named Shenzhen Baili, which would have meant sales of the smartphone would need to be suspended. Apple gained a slight reprieve while the ruling gets reviewed. Now it would seem that the company that sued it, as well as its parent company Digione, might not exactly be what they say, with Shenzhen Baili barely existing as a "flesh and blood" company.

I hope this is the next iPhone (after the iPhone 7, that is)

I hope this is the next iPhone (after the iPhone 7, that is)

Today we have a peek at the next iPhone - a concept for a device that may be Apple's vision for the iPhone 7's next-of-kin. There's word that the iPhone 7 wont be a miracle of engineering and mind-blowing madness - that it won't be the major upgrade this 2-year cycle Apple always works with would have us expect. This is not the iPhone we were expecting, or hoping for. Instead, the big change in smartphone action, I hope, will be coming in 2017. This device will be the real brain-blaster.

iOS 10 official as Siri opens to developers

iOS 10 official as Siri opens to developers

Apple introduced iOS 10 for iPhone and iPad this week at WWDC 2016, suggesting 10 new big features would come with it - at least 10, that is. The first of these was, obviously, user experience. This update would be the "biggest iOS release ever for our users," they said, and it'd begin with a redesigned lock screen. This update would expand on 3D touch, quick interaction with apps, and rich notifications through this screen as well.
