By Luke Jones on Monday October 13, 2014

When reservations for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reached 2 million in China last week, I suggested that when the devices were made available for pre-order in the country they may get close to matching the figures posted during their earlier initial launch in nine countries. Well, how very wrong I was as the new handsets have been snapped up in unprecedented numbers in China with up to 20 million units being bought.

By Luke Jones on Wednesday October 08, 2014

Only the most ridiculous of fan boy would not look from iOS to Android and think there are something's Apple's OS could borrow, and of course the same is true in reverse. For example, some more of Google's services would be a welcome addition to Cupertino's ecosystem, such as Google News & Weather which is now getting an iOS launch and is available for iPhone and iPad.

By Luke Jones on Tuesday October 07, 2014

A day ago I wrote that news surrounding the oft rumoured iPad Pro was pretty thin on the ground, but ironically today a batch of info arrived courtesy of Digitimes. According to the report, Apple is working on not just one, but two iPad Pro devices and one of them will run both iOS and Mac OS X.

Apple to sell 200 million iPhone 6 units in 2015?
By Luke Jones on Tuesday October 07, 2014

Apple?s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been selling well. Actually, that's an understatement as they have been breaking records and are set to go through the roof again when launched in China and India later this month. However, how well Apple's flagship device does through a launch period is only part of the story as the iPhone has always had fantastic staying power. The iPhone 6 could take that to another level.

By Luke Jones on Monday October 06, 2014

It is almost certain that Apple will roll out a new iPad during the month, but details around Cupertino's new slate/s have been thin on the ground.

UPDATE: 4 million "reserve" the iPhone 6 in China
By Luke Jones on Friday October 03, 2014

There are some out there who believe Apple could release anything and it would be a hit. The company has been under the microscope over the last week because of the "bendgate" saga where iPhone 6 devices were breaking under a bit of stress. That, you may have thought, would slow up the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus on their quest for global domination, but it hasn't. In fact things just get better as China is entering the fray and consumers in the country do not seem put off in the least.
