Ahead of the iPhone SE being announced, it was rumored that the handset would be largely based on the iPhone 8. A subsequent teardown has revealed that the internals of the handset were similar to the iPhone 8 where certain parts could be swapped with one another. It was also revealed that the phone would pack the same 1,821mAh battery.
Ahead of the new iPhone SE’s launch, it was rumored that the device would be similar to the iPhone 8 in terms of design. It turned out to be true as the iPhone SE has adopted a more curved design that is more in line with Apple’s recent design language. However, it seems that the similarities go deeper than that.
Before the new iPhone SE was announced, it was rumored that the handset could be largely based on the iPhone 8’s design. Sure enough, the rumors were true. However, it now also means that Apple has since discontinued the iPhone 8, meaning that if you wanted a cheap iPhone, the new iPhone SE is your best bet.
There have been various claims suggesting that Apple’s new iPhones for 2018, the iPhone XR, Xs, and Xs Max aren’t selling as well as many, including Apple and their investors, would like. Given that Apple doesn’t plan to share figures of its iPhone sales anymore, we guess we’ll never really know 100% how many units they might have sold.
Not long after the introduction of its new iPhones, Apple has now started selling refurbished units of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. These certified refurbished models are available for purchase through the company’s online store for the first time. Both models can be purchased with the 64GB storage configuration in multiple color options.
Apple’s iPhone Xs represents the best that Apple has to offer, but getting your hands on the best will not come cheap, and that’s where the iPhone XR comes in. However the question is, are customers willing to “compromise” to save themselves a few hundred bucks? Turns out that they are.
Apple has decided to quietly launch a repair program for defective iPhone 8 logic boards. It mentions that the free repair program for the device is meant to address the “very small percentage” of iPhone 8 units that require replacement logic boards because of a manufacturing defect. The faulty logic boards may have been causing units to restart randomly, freezing up the screen or preventing the device from turning on […]
A couple of years ago some of you guys might recall an incident with the iPhone in which following an update to the phone, handsets that underwent unofficial repairs ended up getting bricked in the infamous “error 53” debacle. You would think that Apple would have learnt something from the backlash that followed, but apparently not.
According to a report earlier today, it was suggested that Apple could be launching a (PRODUCT)RED version of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Given that Apple launched something similar for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus last year, we suppose this did not really come as a complete surprise.
If you thought that Apple’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus would look better with a different color option, your wish might actually come true because in a report from MacRumors, it seems that a (PRODUCT)RED version of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus could be announced as soon as today.
At this point in time it’s anyone’s guess as to when the AirPower wireless charging mat by Apple will be released, although we have heard that a launch in March is possible. However if you’re looking for a wireless charger, there are many out there right now, but accessory maker Nomad has something new in store.
The iPhone X is the first smartphone from Apple with an OLED display. It’s also the most expensive smartphone that Apple has ever sold with the base model starting at $999. That certainly doesn’t mean all iPhones will cost this much going forward. According to reports, Apple is going to launch a new 6.1 inch iPhone later this year which will feature an LCD display and will cost under $700. […]
Right now users of Apple’s older iPhone models are experiencing throttling due to a software update that attempts to manage the power the phone uses and the battery. Basically as the battery degrades, power management becomes unstable and can lead to unexpected shutdowns, which is why Apple introduced the throttling feature in the first place.
Is Apple’s iPhone X doing badly? That’s what seems to be what some are claiming, with reports suggesting that production will be halved. Others claim otherwise, saying that the reports are overstated. Now it looks like according to the latest report from Counterpoint, they claim that the iPhone X is doing well.
While in terms of power and performance, the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X are more or less the same given that save for some differences in screen size, resolution, battery, and camera, they are essentially the same product. However despite them being relatively the same, the iPhone X seems to be more “popular” in terms of being talked about.
If you’re shopping for a couple of new phones, you’ll be interested to learn that T-Mobile has recently announced that they will be running a promotion in which customers who purchase an iPhone 7, 8, or X will be able to get another iPhone for free, or up to $700 in rebate, depending on the phone that they have chosen.
Apple’s mobile devices are some of the most sought-after gifts during the holiday season. The company has topped new device activations during the holiday season almost every year and 2017 is no different. The latest report from Flurry Analytics shows that iOS devices have accounted for 44 percent of all smartphone and tablet activations over the holiday season. A third of those activations were accounted by new devices like the […]
When the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were launched, it’s safe to say that things did not look too good in terms of sales, where we were hearing many reports about lukewarm responses to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. It was speculated that this is because many were waiting for the iPhone X to be released, thus holding back on purchasing the iPhone 8 instead.
Word on the street is that Apple is cutting iPhone X production due to low demand for its flagship smartphone. Some even believe that the company is going to cut the price of the iPhone X next month in order to improve demand for the handset. Not everyone is buying this, though. One analyst believes that these reports have confused Apple’s production cuts for the iPhone 8 with the iPhone […]
Apple’s iPhones are probably the most expensive smartphones in the market today (not counting the special edition, jewel-encrusted, leather clad options), but it seems that despite the price, the appeal and allure of owning an iPhone is still there, which might explain why the iPhone is apparently selling so well.
