It is pretty much a sure thing each and every year -- Apple will be unleashing new iPhone models that are supposed to be better and more advanced than the previous year’s offerings, but back in 2016, the tech giant did an unusual thing -- it introduced the iPhone SE. To be perfectly clear, this particular model was not as impressive (hardware and specifications wise) as the usual flagships the company releases every second half of any given year, but this “small” iPhone has since gained a solid following, especially among those iOS mobile users who do not mind owning a simpler iPhone.
Fresh from tweeting leaked renders of LG’s upcoming G7 flagship almost a couple of weeks ago, Benjamin Geskin has now shared on Twitter leaked renders of what appears to be an iPhone X in blush gold color. Yup, we have heard rumors of a blush gold iPhone X better, but Geskin is quite confident that this is the real thing.
One of Google’s artificial intelligence driven features, the Google Assistant, has now found its way to the iPad. With this latest development, Apple’s tablet offering officially now has a trio of other digital assistants on top of the tech giant’s own Siri feature. Those three are the aforementioned Google Assistant, Microsoft’s Cortana (via the release of a version optimized for iPads last February), and Amazon’s Alexa (which happens to be the third most downloaded app among iPad users during last year’s holiday shopping season).
According to a report recently released by Barclays, it appears that Apple is indeed already working on its new generation AirPods, and this time around, the latest models are said to come with noise cancelling capabilities (plus other enhancements).
In just a span of a couple of weeks, a pair of companies are already claiming that they have the means to unlock the newest iPhone models from Apple, specifically the iPhone X, as well as the iPhone 8.
About a week ago, Forbes had published a report saying that Cellebrite, a tech vendor based in Israel, had discovered a method for unlocking iPhones that have installed iOS 11, including those that are running version 11.2.6.
No doubt due to the steadily increasing popularity of its Apple Watch offering, Apple has surged to the top of the global wearables market, comfortably leading over its rivals, which include former industry leader Fitbit and Chinese tech giant Xiaomi, at least according to new information provided by research firm IDC.
AT&T has decided to reduce the pricing of its unlimited data plan to $80 month, which is now ten bucks less expensive than its original rate. On top of that, the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States has also proceeded to throw in some pricing discounts, as well as added benefits, like a lifetime subscription to HBO, plus a $15 video credit for the mobile operator’s video service offerings.
According to a report recently published by Bloomberg, it seems that Apple has plans to launch new versions of its AirPods that come with some serious upgrades later this year, plus another refresh next year.
The iPhone maker is reportedly looking to introduce a next generation AirPods offering that makes full use of its latest addition to its W family of processors. The company had specifically designed its W chips not only to improve Bluetooth based connections between Apple devices, but also to better manage their capabilities.
As they always say, there is always a first time for everything. For the global smartphone market, the fourth quarter of last year saw the industry suffer its first ever year over year decrease in terms of the total volume of sales, at least according to new information presented by Gartner.
Per the research firm’s numbers, the industry finished the year 2017 with a total sales volume of close to 408 million units. While that figure still represents an impressive quantity, it also happens to signify a 5.6 percent decrease, as compared to the total unit sales number registered during the fourth quarter of the previous year (2016).
According to new information from Counterpoint Research, Verizon Wireless is comfortably leading the industry when it comes to selling the Apple Watch, specifically during the final quarter of last year.
