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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
The Apple iPhone X was launched in September 2017 with a price tag of US$ 999 (excluding taxes). While the iPhone X is the priciest iPhone ever made by Apple, it is barely the priciest smartphone in the world. Special edition Porsche smartphones from Huawei are extremely pricey and so are custom made devices. One such custom-made iPhone X is the Tesla iPhone X which costs a mind-boggling US$ 4590 (Rs 3,13,000 approx.). For context, the iPhone X 256GB is priced at Rs 1,02,000 in India.
The Tesla iPhone X is no ordinary iPhone by any means. Russian phone accessory maker Caviar is known for making over the top, highly expensive phone cases. The Tesla iPhone X, however, is [...]
With every passing day, we inch closer to this year’s World Wide Developer’s Conference. It is widely anticipated that the Apple iPhone SE 2 will launch before the WWDC 2018 and only a few days in May are left for Apple to hold an event. If the launch doesn’t happen in May, it is entirely possible that Apple will launch 4 iPhones in September. Especially considering the fact that more renders are revealing a design similar to the iPhone X. If true, the SE 2 will look a part of the 2018 lineup and not stick out like a sore thumb with giant bezels and Touch ID.
The new images of iPhone SE 2 cases by Olixar reveal a design we have become familiar with [...]
Ever since the Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s firegate controversy, smartphones catching fire gets more attention than usual. A few months ago, we saw a video of a man biting his smartphone’s battery before getting a new one. The battery obviously exploded because it was punctured. This goes to show that batteries in smartphones can explode if damaged even slightly. In a new incident of an iPhone bursting into flames, there was no biting involved.
The CCTV footage appears to be of a repair shop, which means it is fair to assume that the iPhone was there for a repair. The incident took place in Las Vegas, USA and was recorded by a surveillance camera. The video shows a man [...]
Apple is expected to launch the Apple iPhone SE 2 before the World Wide Developer’s Conference 2018 kicks off in early-June. The rumours surrounding the iPhone SE 2 have increased in intensity and uniformity. That usually is a sign of a smartphone on the brink of launching. So far, we either seen a radically different design with thin bezels and a notch, or the same iPhone SE design with a glass back for wireless charging.
In new 360º renders leaked on Twitter, the images reveal a new radical design of the iPhone SE 2, more in line with the iPhone X and soon to be launched iPhone 2018 lineup. The smartphone has a notch on the display and very thin bezels all around. If [...]
The 2018 iPhone lineup is gearing up to be an exciting one. After years of similar design language across the board, Apple changed things up with the iPhone X. With its new lineup of iPhones, Apple will completely drop the home button and adopt Face ID for all the iPhones. Out of the three that are rumoured to launch in September, the iPhone X Plus will be the biggest and priciest.
The iPhone X Plus is expected to have a 6.5 inch OLED TrueTone display. If true, it will be the largest display ever on an iPhone. A new report not only claims that the iPhone X Plus will indeed have a 6.5 inch display, that this display will be fit into an iPhone 8 Plus body. The report is also [...]
Huawei launched the P20 Pro on March 27th making it the first smartphone with a triple camera setup on the rear. The smartphone borrowed a couple of design cues from the iPhone X like its notch and placing the cameras vertically on the back. However, it appears that Apple might take a hint or two from Huawei for its 2019 iPhone lineup.
According to Taipei Times, Apple is likely to launch a new iPhone with a triple-camera setup in the second half of next year. The report cites a research note from Yuanta Securities analyst Jeff Pu that does not mention any other details about the cameras. A report from the Economic Daily News last month [...]
