iPhone sale promos point toward the Next Big Thing

It's been a long time coming - the age of the iPhone discount. Since just a few years ago when we happened upon the first quarter in which the iPhone didn't sell better than it'd sold the same quarter the year before - the mood has been changing.

Your iOS 12 iPhone is still safe: Don’t believe the hype

Your iOS 12 iPhone is still safe: Don’t believe the hype

If you're worrying about headlines that suggest iPhones and iPad have a 'serious problem' with security, don't believe the hype. The hype is based in truth, but the truth is that just one single company suggests they've broken in to an iPhone running iOS 12.

Not a fan of the default iPhone XS and XS Max colors? There’s always an official colored case for you. In fact, Apple has just added three more colors to the mix. It has also added a few more options for Apple Watch users, but it seems it hasn’t yet made good it promise of a transparent case for the already colorful iPhone XR.

Rumors of its underperformance are greatly exaggerated. Or at least that seems to be the idea that Apple vice president of product marketing Greg Joswiak wants to impress on everyone regarding the iPhone XR reported sales numbers or lack thereof. Without confirming or denying production cut reports, the exec just wants everyone to know that the iPhone XR has been outselling the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max ever since it launched, even if that launch was a few weeks later.

iPhone XR, iPhone XS are already in trouble

iPhone XR, iPhone XS are already in trouble

Every new iPhone, including the somewhat controversial iPhone X, is almost always welcomed with great enthusiasm and equally great sales numbers. But if the reports that are just coming in are accurate, this year could be a bit different for the tech giant. Because while the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and even the iPhone XR have mostly been positively reviewed, actual demand has been less than encouraging. In fact, Apple may already be introducing discounts for the iPhone XR, at least in Japan.
