We wrote last week that the iPhone 6c, Apple's upcoming new "affordable" iPhone, is going to roll out during the second quarter of 2016. That information came from a report in Taiwan, and we questioned it as Apple sticks to fall launches, meaning Cupertino would announce the handset next month. Noted leak professional @Evleaks now backs up that view by saying that the iPhone 6c will be launched in September alongside the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
Ming-Chi Kuo is an analyst with KGI Securities who is typically accurate when it comes to predicting events in Apple's future. So when he says something it is usually worth paying attention to, and Kuo's latest information is no different. The analyst says that production on the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been delayed for one to two weeks.
It has been widely rumored that Apple will launch a new "affordable" iPhone when the company launches the iPhone 6s next month. A replacement for the iPhone 5c, the iPhone 6c will launch in the second quarter (April through June) of 2016. Digitimes suggests the device will be delayed until next year, so does that mean we will not see it next month?
It is a given by now that when Apple launches a new iPhone the consumer base goes into overdrive and buys that device by the boatload. Indeed, any new iPhone flagship typically becomes the best-selling smartphone of the year within its first few weeks on sale. The iPhone 6 took this fevered buying into the stratosphere and it toppled a multitude of sales records.
What is Apple's most disappointing product of recent years? No, we are not running a poll as we think it was the iPhone 5c, a solid enough smartphone that was actually a slap in the face. You see, Apple wanted to offer an affordable (we are using the terms as loosely as possible) smartphone so announced the funky and colorful 5c.
With the release of a new iPhone just a few months away, the rumour mill is cranking into action regarding what Apple's exact plans are for its market leading smartphone. However, while there are plenty of reports about the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, what about going even further to next year's (2016) model, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus?
There have been growing rumors over the last week that Apple will launch three iPhone mobiles this year, an iPhone 7 (possibly iPhone 6s), iPhone 7 Plus, and a new small 4-inch handset. Unlike most iPhone rumors, this one seems a little more credible considering the iPhone 4c is now a couple of years old and is need of a refresh.
The iPhone has been popular from day one, we all know that, and we all know that it is the most popular smartphone on the market, the launch of the iPhone 6 proved that. However, since the launch of the first iPhone way back when the smartphone idea was in its infancy, how well as the device performed? Well, we have some news of solid figures straight from Apple.
If you own a 16GB iOS device you should be prepared for many frustrating times ahead, times where you will be juggling apps to find space. That's because Apple has just increased the allotted size for developers to work with. Since the App Store made its debut in 2008, apps have been limited to 2GB in size, but Cupertino has now doubled that, giving developers 4GB to play with.
Apple is riding the crest of another huge wave with the announcements that the iPhone sold 73.4 million iPhones and recorded the best ever quarterly profit in business history. According to Cupertino CEO Tim Cook, the huge success of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus did not come from Apple fans, but instead came from Android users.
