Apple knows better than to cut off its nose to spite its face, as the saying goes, hence why it still contracts Samsung to build the custom System-on-Chips (SoCs) that end up in iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad. Will that relationship continue between these two bitter rivals? It would appear so, based on comments... Read more...
Apple is making a big deal about its encryption scheme in iOS 8 and is championing itself as a purveyor of user privacy. The way Apple chief Tim Cook explains it, Apple wouldn't be able to help law enforcement infiltrate your iPhone even if it wanted to because the encryption is too strong. Google's been echoing a...

Say it with us now, "Gold is best!" That's the line made hilariously famous by a TeamCoco (Conan O'Brien) skit mocking the gold iPhone, but in all seriousness, the gold color option has turned into, well, a golden egg for Apple. It's apparently so popular that Apple will reportedly offer a gold color option for its... Read more...
There seems to be a bit of confusion over how to buy one of Apple's iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus handsets in unlocked form.

It's still being determined just how widespread the issue pertaining to bent iPhone 6 Plus models really is.

Apple finally responded to complaints that its giant sized iPhone 6 Plus is having trouble staying firm, saying the problem is an "extremely rare" one (that excuse never works, btw) and that only nine customers have complained to the company about it so far.

It appears that “Bendgate” is not as big an issue as some are claiming. At least that is what Apple is saying.
