KGI: iPhone 7 will have nothing attractive, shipments to fall

KGI: iPhone 7 will have nothing attractive, shipments to fall

If famed KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is to be believed, Apple's market nightmares are far from over. Even though the company already forecast what would its slowest iPhone sales growth early this year, it's fortune isn't going to turn for the better for the rest of 2016. In fact, it could have the lowest shipment numbers, even lower than 2014's disappointing figures. Kuo attributes this to certain factors, chief among which will be an iPhone 7 that will have nothing attractive to offer. Or so says the analyst.

FBI director hints agency paid more than $1.3m to unlock iPhone

FBI director hints agency paid more than $1.3m to unlock iPhone

Public information about the FBI’s method for unlocking the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone is slight, and so we’re forced to piece together what precious little information is available. Take, for example, FBI Director James Comey’s recent statement about how much the FBI had to pay to get the iPhone unlocked: more than he will make in the remainder of his time serving as the bureau’s director, which a little bit of math estimates as $1.3 million.

Galaxy Note 6 detail leaks may give iPhone 7 Plus a run for its money

Galaxy Note 6 detail leaks may give iPhone 7 Plus a run for its money

It would appear that Samsung's schedule for releasing Galaxy phones will once again match up - sort of - with Apple's iPhone. Not just because both devices generally appear ready for the market at around the same time of the year - Autumn. Also because Apple is said to be seeking out OLED panels this time around - at least for a phone with a 5.5-inch display - that'd match up well with the iPhone Plus line thus far. Or perhaps the iPhone 7 Pro?

Lexar’s Lightning microSD dongle makes iPhone file transfers easy

Your iPhone is great for uploading images, videos, and other files to the cloud when you're out and about, but getting those files from your gadget to the phone isn't always fast or simple.

Enter Lexar and its new microSD reader with a Lightning connector.

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

Reports this week suggest that Apple's next big iPhone launch won't only be a big event because it's a "tick" year in their "tick-tock" schedule - it'll be big because of their Samsung connection. It's not unheard of for Apple to use Samsung parts in their smartphones - they've been doing it since the very beginning. What is unheard of thus far is Apple's use of an OLED display panel from Samsung on any one of their devices. With the use of an OLED panel, the iPhone will be brighter and more intense than ever before.

Why an OLED iPhone would be so important

Why an OLED iPhone would be so important

In the run-up to the big iPhone 7 reveal later this year, Apple is said to be working on an even more fundamental change to its best-selling smartphone. Though the Cupertino company has used LCD screens for its handsets since the first iPhone in 2007 - and is expected to continue to do so for the iPhone 7 - that could all change come next year, as the lure of OLED finally tips Retina display into the opposing camp.

Apple recovered two thirds of e-waste collected last year

With new phones, tablets, and laptops coming out all the time, we often upgrade our devices well before we need to. Those devices will get sold, or given to other people, but at some point, they will hit their end of life. And regardless of whether the device just became too old to be useful, or it suffered a catastrophic death, it has to go somewhere. And simply throwing it in the trash isn't a good option.
