Apple India’s new country head, Michel Coulomb has some radical plans for the company. Reports claim that he plans to dismantle the current sales strategy set by predecessor Sanjay Kaul to achieve a more ‘organised distribution’ structure for iPhones, iPads and Macs. This essentially means that consumers in India won’t be seeing discounts on Apple products like they’re used to.
With this new strategy, distributors of Apple products in India will be trimmed. Hence, the company will look to maintain the prices of its products since up until now, distributors had the freedom to sell to any retailer, even at lower prices. All these details were shared [...]
Apple launched the iPhone X in September along with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The iPhone X was a major departure from Apple’s design philosophy and introduced us to Face ID. While Face ID was received with some scepticism in the beginning, however, it has ably replaced Touch ID and the company plans to phase out the fingerprint sensor in all its iOS devices. This means that future iPads will also launch with Face ID, which has been seemingly confirmed in iOS 12.
iOS 12 beta was made available to users right after the first day of WWDC 2018. iOS developer Guilherme Rambo, during his usual poking around in iOS 12 found something interesting pertaining to Face ID and iPads. [...]

At WWDC 2018, Apple unveiled the new version of iOS which will see to iOS devices later this year. Along with new features to Siri and a better notification management, Apple also unveiled new additions to Animojis. In September, Apple introduced Animojis along with the iPhone X and for all the fancy Face ID tech it possessed, Animojis soon became its most famous feature. Apple appears to have recognised that and has gone a step further Memoji.
Memoji is what Samsung tried to do with AR Emojis and did not succeed. In iMessage, where you would usually select an Animoji, users will soon be able to swipe right and click on the add button to create a custom Memoji. In this window, [...]
The first day of Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference kicked off in San Jose, California today. Historically, WWDC has concentrated on the software aspect of Apple’s portfolio. At WWDC 2018, Apple unveiled iOS 12, the successor to iOS 11 which was seeded to compatible devices in September 2017. iOS 12 will be seeded to the iPhone 5s and newer, meaning an iPhone launched in 2014 will run on the latest version of iOS.
While iOS 11 had a rocky start, about 81% of iOS devices run iOS 11 at this point. Compared to this, only 6% of Android devices run on the latest version of Android Oreo. Apple has announced that all the devices that received the iOS 11 [...]
The existence of an iPhone SE successor has been under scrutiny over the past few months. Up until a day ago, it was anticipated that the iPhone SE 2 will launch bef0re WWDC 2018. However, that seems highly unlikely as the conference is just 4 days away. That uncertainty has not stopped people from posting sketchy images of screen protectors claiming it to be iPhone SE 2’s.
A new image of two screen protectors has surfaced online which claims to reveal the design of the iPhone SE 2. The image has the iPhone SE 2 screen protector next to an iPhone X’s screen protector. The notch on the iPhone SE 2 is smaller than the iPhone X’s but, it is certainly [...]
Apple will hold its annual developer’s conference in early-June in San Jose, California. The World Wide Developer’s Conference has historically revolved around Apple’s multiple operating systems rather than hardware. However, Apple has managed to unveil a few hardware products at these conferences. The iPhone SE 2 was long rumoured to launch before WWDC 2018 or at least, at WWDC. That, however, seems highly unlikely.-7% [...]
Back in early-April, there was a report about Apple incorporating a triple-camera setup on the 2019 iPhone. It appears that it wasn’t a one-off prediction as a result of boredom and this might actually happen. A new report claims that Apple will indeed use a third lens on the back of the iPhone but, for enhancing AR experience.-7% [...]
Apple has a busy few months ahead with the WWDC 2018 and September launch event. While we are yet to know telling details about the 2018 iPhone lineup, it appears that the 2019 iPhone lineup has a few thing sorted out already. We know that 2018 will see the launch of three iPhones, out of which, the most affordable one will have an LCD display. A new report claims that the 2019 iPhone lineup won’t have an LCD panel at all.
The report by South Korea’s ET News falls in line with previous rumours that Apple will complete its transition to OLED in 2019, with all models adopting the technology. The report [...]
The buzz around the 2018 iPhone lineup has not even reached its peak yet and we have already numerous leaks about it.

The World Wide Developer’s Conference will commence on June 4th and many software-based announcements are expected. We will learn more about iOS 12 as well and it appears that the new iOS version will have more NFC functionalities than before.[...]
In 2014, Apple released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in September. The release saw Apple move on to a new unibody design and screen sizes. The iconic top-placed power button moved to the right-hand side and the circular volume rockers became cylindrical. However, the most talked about aspect of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus continues to be infamous “bendgate” incident. It was alleged that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were bending in people’s pockets due to Apple’s poor design.
As a part of the ongoing lawsuit against the company regarding touchscreen failure due to bending, new internal documents were released by Judge Koh. These documents have revealed that the company knew [...]
