After seeing some cool new iOS 7 concepts on Gizmodo I just had to see what they would look like in my budget iPhone concept.
Taking Dámaso Benítez’ really nice concept I rendered up some images of how Apple might introduce the new, cheap iPhone.
A new lawsuit claims the iPhone4 has a defective on-off button. The national class action claims Apple knew about the defect but didn’t disclose it even as it worked with AT&T to sell 2 year contracts.
The fashion it-girl, Lily Kwong, launched a new collection of accessories together with Cellairis, the company better known for providing trustful accessories, innovative and fashion-forward cases for mobile phones and tablets. The LK collection is the result of Lily Kwong’s passion for technology (as she grew up nearby Silicon Valley) and her glamorous personality.
Hwangbum Yang was only a few blocks from home in the Bronx, returning after his shift as a cook, when the attack happened: A man with a gun demanded Yang’s iPhone, and when he refused to hand it over, the 26-year-old was shot dead.
BlackBerry managed to squeeze in one surprise announcement during its huge conference keynote this morning: BlackBerry Messenger, the company’s popular messaging app, will finally jump to the iPhone and Android this summer.
This is the first time BlackBerry has brought BBM to other platforms, and it’s something the company’s fans have been begging for over the past few years.
Apple faces a whole lot of inbound requests to unlock iPhone devices from law enforcement officials, according to a new report from CNET. Seized iPhones with a passcode lock are apparently secure enough to frustrate a lot of police agencies in the U.S., resulting in a wait list that Apple has put in place to help it deal with unlock requests from the authorities.
MiniPlayer is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to add an iTunes inspired mini player to the iPhone. The player can be easily docked on the right-side of the iPhone’s screen, and revealed with a simple tap gesture on the album artwork.
Luna is an amazing Cydia app that offers a better Do Not Disturb experience for iPhone and iPad users thanks to a pull down toggle and smarter notifications. Luna is what Do Not Disturb should be in iOS 7.
From a few weeks ago we reviewed an upcoming jailbreak tweak called Piano Passcode, for those who don’t know what does it do, the tweak removes the native number passcode and replace it with 7 piano keys, so each time you want to unlock your iPhone you will have to play with the piano.. No more numbers…
When the first DSLR cameras were discovered to have outstanding HD video capturing capabilities, the door to a whole new world opened for filmmakers. Today, we have another world to explore with the iPhone 4S and its abilities to both capture 1080 HD video at a variety of frame rates and to encode at bitrates up to 50mb per second (Cannon 5d Mark II encodes at 38mb per second/Blu-Ray disc has a maximum bit-rate of 40mb per second). The number one hurdle to filmmaking on an iPhone is the stigma of shooting with a phone.
Flying under the radar yesterday was a minor release by T-Mobile into Apple’s app store with the release of T-Mobile TV. T-Mobile has offered its TV app on Android since 2010 and with the release of the iPhone is expanding their efforts to showcase their “free” app.
Since the iPhone 4, Apple has been leading the charge with the cameras in its phones. The iPhone 5 has a stunning 8-megapixel camera that, in my opinion, makes owning a point-and-shoot almost pointless. By most people’s standards, the camera in an iPhone is more than enough for their daily needs: They get great photos with minimal frustration.
Most airlines allow travelers to check in electronically, either online or via the special kiosks in the aiport. However, for those that have trouble checking in electronically, there’s always a friendly face at the counter that is willing to help. EasyJet is hoping to reduce the number of people checking in at the airport with the launch of a new smartphone application.
Meet Lumu: a digital light meter for photographers that plugs into the iPhone’s headphone jack as a smaller and smarter replacement for traditional analogue light meters. It’s used in conjunction with Lumu’s app — being demoed in prototype here at hardware alley at Disrupt NY – to help photographers figure out the best camera settings for their current location.
For years, gadget-makers have been hailing wireless charging. But there’s a dirty little secret: it’s not really wireless. Since we can’t yet efficiently transmit power through thin air, there are still wires involved in all those “wireless” charging devices. To its credit, BuQu Tech’s Magnetyze doesn’t actually claim to be a wireless charging system, and the case/charger combo has its own attractive qualities.
The original (1st generation) iPhone was launched on June 27, 2007. Since then we’ve seen five successive versions of the smartphone released (3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, and iPhone 5), but only now is Apple set to classify the original handset as a vintage product, and therefore obsolete.
