Apple to launch new iPads on October 16th
By Luke Jones on Friday October 03, 2014

Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus media event was the biggest launch of the year, and it even had a little watch too. The roll out of the smartphones has gone well (ahem, bendgate aside) as the handsets have romped to massive sales. However, the fact that these devices and the launch would be a success was a given, as close to a certainty as you can get in this industry. However, Cupertino faces a shakier launch when it rolls out the new iPads.

2 million "reserve" the iPhone 6 in China
By Luke Jones on Thursday October 02, 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.

iPhone 5c sales remain strong, tops UK in August
By Luke Jones on Wednesday October 01, 2014

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus may be stealing all the headlines from just about every other device, but the old iPhones are not doing too badly either. That even includes the often ridiculed iPhone 5c from last year, or as some others consider it, the plastic one. However, the 5c has been a proper success and it normally gets close to the top of best seller lists, such as in the UK where it has been the best-selling handset in August.

Apple to offer a gold colored iPad
By Luke Jones on Wednesday October 01, 2014

I suppose we can look back on the Apple iPhone 5s and see it as an innovative device. It arrived with a 64-bit processer, something Android is still yet to do consistently and it also featured a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, tech that rivals have not quite matched in terms of quality. Oh yes, the iPhone 6 also came in a gold hue, a color that has been copied by just about every major rival since. It is a small innovation, but hey, Apple started the gold trend people.

iPhone 6 to arrive in China on October 10th
By Luke Jones on Tuesday September 30, 2014

Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus around the world over the last two weeks and "Bendgate" aside the smartphone has been a huge success. The handset shifted 10 million units in three days, a record amount, but that number could have been higher. Apple would have ideally liked to have launched the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in China too, but the country put a halt to its release until it passed regulatory approval.

The iPhone 6 will arrive in China soon
By Luke Jones on Monday September 29, 2014

Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch and roll out went swimmingly with the handsets racking up over 10 million unit sales over their first three days on release. Apple will be delighted, but there was a problem with China, with the country not passing the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus to be sold in the country. That meant Cupertino was stripped of the chance of selling even more units by rolling out in the world?s biggest smartphone market.

Do you want an iPhone 6?
By Luke Jones on Sunday September 28, 2014

Apple launched the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last week and it was a massive roll out. The company had millions of devices ready to ship, but it was still not enough as the handset smashed records and have ultimately sold out.

The new iPads will land October 21st
By Luke Jones on Tuesday September 23, 2014

The last couple of weeks have been dominated by Apple and the iPhone 6, with even devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 taking a back seat. If you thought the Cupertino hype machine would die down now and let others take the spotlight you should think again. Apple of course has another all-conquering product in its arsenal and a new one is due to land in October, so let it all start again.

UPDATE: Apple holding on to Beats Music
By Luke Jones on Tuesday September 23, 2014

During his interview with Charlie Rose last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook explained the reason why he green lit the purchase of Beats Audio for $3 billion earlier in the year. Cook explained that the way Beats Music worked was different to other music streaming services because it made him feel different. It was unique he said, suggesting it in some way spoke to his soul because Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine (Beats co-founders) understand music and artists.
