In what many see as the biggest iPhone launch in Apple’s history, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are in very scarce supplies and the Apple website broke down on several occasions due to the mad rush by iPhone fans to get their preorders in today.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, predicted that the two bigger display iPhone 6s will be “the mother of all upgrades” and would entice Android users to jump ship and switch to the iOS platform. Perhaps, but we wouldn’t bet on that Timmy.

The iPhone rush seems to be in full swing and people are pushing on the virtual gates of Apple online stores, and physical Apple Stores to get a chance to get their iPhone 6s by September. More...

The iWatch May Actually be Named iTime

clock July 30, 2014 19:29 by author Frank Ling

The iPod, iTouch, iPad, and of course, the iPhone are the brand names of Apple’s highly successful products, and the prefix of the “i” precedes each new portable electronics line.

The press has already dubbed the new smartwatch from Apple as the iWatch, for obvious reasons. But it seems strange that the mention of the iWatch, by name from the company that is developing it, rarely if ever refers to it as the iWatch.

Apple is scurrying to lock down the trademark name of iWatch in different countries, but it appears that it has already been taken by other companies. And in the United States, the moniker is owned by a company named, appropriately enough, OMG. More...

With all eyes on the coming launch of the iPhone 6, most news sources believe that the event will encompass a double launch of two versions of Apple’s new smartphones.

Rumors about broken launch times have plagued each new iPhone virtually every year, but as time comes up for the launch date, Apple somehow always meets its deadlines. Will this year signify a late launch for Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone 6? More...

“Secret” eBay Apple Store Selling Unlocked iPhone 5s Cheap

clock July 11, 2014 06:08 by author Frank Ling

OK, we know. If this eBay store was really a secret, than how do we know about it? That’s a point well taken. But according to sharp-eyed eBay shoppers, a store that mysteriously showed up in May is offering big discounts for refurbished, unlocked iPhone 5s.

The prices are even lower than refurb units found on Apple’s own website and are discounted about $200 less on certain models. The refurb iPhone 5s come in 16,32, and 64GB configurations.

Should you give the “Factory-Certified” store a try? If you’ve been waiting to buy an iPhone 5 at a reasonable price with a one-year factory warranty, and you’re not planning to buy an iPhone 6, then the answer is probably “yes” for you. More...

Apple Announces Lower Prices for the iPod iTouch

When the iPod iTouch was first released almost seven years ago people scratched their heads in puzzlement and asked, “What’s it for?” It didn’t have phone capacities but functioned like an iPhone.

Some people thought the device was too expensive and didn’t stand a chance. Why buy an iTouch when you could buy an iPhone?

But as it turned out there were a good number of people who were interested in buying this "media player." But of late, sales of the iTouch have fallen flat, and Apple is trying to jumpstart the device's business. More...

For anyone looking forward to a new gadget from Apple, at the top of the list will be the new iWatch, which is expected to launch sometime in October.

While news of the upcoming device is nothing new, what is new is that there may be more than one iWatch during the launch. Inside sources seem to indicate that the high tech device will come in different screen sizes.

Apple has been long overdue for a real “wow” product and all bets seem to be on the success of the iWatch. If it doesn’t pan out to be something that the public can get excited about, you can almost be certain that Apple stocks, and Tim Cook’s reputation, will go quickly south. More...
