The spat between the FBI and Apple turned ugly as the bureau wanted Apple to create a backdoor which would allow it to access the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone 5c. Apple denied on the principle that it couldn’t set a precedent where it succumbs to government demands for user data. Amid all of the debate, the FBI suddenly announced that it had cracked the iPhone and its fight with Apple […]
The legal fight between the FBI and Apple might have ended for now but it did spark debate on users’ privacy and safety of their data. Apple held its ground and said that it wouldn’t create a backdoor that would set a precedent where a government comes in and demands that the company provide access to user data.
With Apple being rumored to share the FBI’s iPhone hacking technique with the masses not too far down the road – after they have issued a fix for the loophole beforehand in order to minimize any kind of untoward incidences, of course, it looks like things are about to return to status quo soon. Well, there are other ways of cracking an iPhone’s passcode, and here is a device that […]
Recently, Apple has gotten into a little tiff with the folks over at the FBI concerning the unlocking of a deceased man’s iPhone, as said person was a terrorist involved in the San Bernardino shooting on December 2nd that left a trail of destruction which included 14 deaths (excluding the two terrorists who were shot down, of course).
Over the past few months the rumor mill has once again been obsessed with a smaller iPhone, it has been claimed time and again that Apple is readying a 4-inch iPhone which it’s likely going to release early next year. New information has surfaced today from a well known Apple analyst who has been right on some accounts in the past. Apparently the 4-inch iPhone will be powered by Apple’s […]
The difference between the new iPhone 6s and the iPhone 5, 5s, or 5c isn’t just its display size. It’s also its display resolution in which the iPhone 6s sports a higher compared to its predecessors. That being said according to user reports, there are some users who are encountering a weird display bug when restoring their iPhone 5/5s/5c backups on their new iPhone 6s.As you can see in the […]
If you were to head on over to the Apple Store, you’ll find that you can still purchase the iPhone 5c from 2013. However according to a report from 9to5Mac, they claim that once the next-gen iPhones are launched, Apple is expected to discontinue the iPhone 5c. However in terms of other “older” devices, they’ll still be kept around.This includes the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and interestingly enough the […]
The iPhone 5c, while created with the best intentions, was not Apple’s best-selling product. In fact many are wondering if a repeat of the “C” phone this year is truly needed but that’s a debate for another time. In the meantime it seems that over in the UK, the police have attributed the phone to saving a man’s life.As you can see in the image above, the shows the iPhone […]
The iPhone 5c was a bit different from Apple’s recent smartphones as metal and glass weren’t the defining features of its design like almost every other model. Many say that this was a failed experiment on Apple’s part which is why we haven’t seen the iPhone 5c’s successor yet. Recently there have been rumors that Apple is developing a smaller iPhone, one that’s now referred to as the iPhone 6c, and […]
Ah, exploding smartphones. These do seem to happen far too often than what we are comfortable with, and after what seems to be a lull in this particular bit of news, we are not too happy to report that the latest incident involves an exploding iPhone 5c. As a result, the victim, a man from Long Island, had to be hospitalized.
The iPhone has proven itself to be a phenomenal seller, but no company is capable of maintaining a forward momentum perpetually – it is basically an impossibility in the long run of things. Which means, Apple, despite its massive market capitalization, is still liable to make some mistakes – and the iPhone 5c might be seen as one of them. After all, the existing iPhone range right now comprises of […]
The iPhone 5c is like a happy middle between the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5s. It isn’t as powerful as the iPhone 5s, but it is a tad newer than the iPhone 5, so for those who’d rather not buy the iPhone 5s, they had the iPhone 5c to consider. Unfortunately the device wasn’t exactly the most well-received, with Tim Cook admitting that the low sales were unexpected.However it […]

Most of the rumors that we had heard about these iPhones turned out to be true, including […]
We have been noticing a trend recently. Retailers and carriers have been slashing prices of the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. This doesn’t come as a surprise because we often see this happening whenever new iPhones are on the horizon. T-Mobile has now joined that list. It has reduced prices of unlocked iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C units sold through its website and retail stores.
