When the iPhone 5 was first introduced, Apple also showed off the Lightning cord (and port) for the first time. This was a new cord for the Apple smartphone and tablet universe, and it was another new cord that users had to purchase if they wanted more than the one cord that came in the box to charge their device and transfer wired data. It may be time to do that once again.
The iPhone 6 device, the box, even the cord (mostly) looks like it could have been made by Apple. Until you look closely. This is a Shenzhen iPhone 6 knockoff, one made by a group that makes cash off of two groups: those that are fooled themselves, and those that know what they’re buying and aim to fool you.
Hacking your phone’s gyroscope is not a simple task. It’s not going to happen overnight, and unless there’s some method we’re not yet aware of, it’s not going to happen without your permission - yet. Several researchers have discovered a way to make a gyroscope listen in on your voice, on the other hand, and it may be possible to turn a normally harmless piece of equipment into a spy machine soon.
As much as our smartphones have evolved to become smarter, sometimes even more than us, the "phone" part of our devices have changed very little since they day they went digital. Humin wants to change all that. Now available for iPhones, Humin replaces the default iOS phone and contacts app to make collecting people's names and numbers a richer and more memorable experience.
A new report sheds some interesting light on just what Apple may be up to this Fall. As they bet big on Sapphire glass (to the tune of $700 million!), it seems iPhone and iWatch screen production is ramping up as well. As we anticipate new smartphones and a wearable from Apple, we may be through the Sapphire looking glass on both.
Dash, the breakthrough driving app for Android, has officially made its debut on iOS. Having been in a beta testing program for some time, Dash is now ready for prime time. The app itself operates much like the Android app, and looks quite similar.
This week we’re seeing Samsung extend their "wall huggers" campaign for those smartphone users who hang out around power plugs with some "wall hugger" advertisements. You may see these little signs appearing near or directly around wall outlets in airpots, showing consumers what they’re missing, so to speak.
The hardware you see in the Spigen cases being delivered to the public today are based on an early design of the iPhone 6. That’s what they’d have you believe, anyway, as the case-makers make due with what they have on-hand: the same "iPhone 6" dummies everyone else has covered since the leaks began earlier this year.
The last time we brought you leaked iPhone 6 pictures, it was of the display, rumored to be fully assembled. At the time, I lamented we couldn’t see whether or not it was curved, as we’ve been led to believe it will be. A new round of leaks shows the display in much closer detail, as well as a few other iPhone details you might like.
