When it comes to United States smartphone sales, Apple is clearly king controlling a record 53 % of US smartphone market. Looking at the bigger picture of all handset sales (feature and smartphone combined), Apple has solidly kept in second place ever since the release of the iPhone 4S-- until now. A new report suggests that LG has taken the 2nd place spot, knocking Apple to third overall.
Production of the 9.7-inch touchscreen panel has been reduced at Sharp, the major supplier of those screens for Apple's iPad.
Recently we reported on a resurfaced rumor suggesting that Apple might be working on a cheaper version of the iPhone. At the time we said it seemed out of character for Apple, and unless it was aimed at the Chinese market, it was probably not too likely.

The WSJ and now Bloomberg are both pumping out new rumors suggesting Apple might be working on a lower-tier smartphone to go alongside its flagship (currently iPhone 5) model.
There have been rumors going on for a while now that Apple is considering its own online radio service. The idea of online streaming as an extension of iTunes isn't surprising and makes a great deal of sense as offerings like Spotify and Pandora continue to grow and expand their services.
While smartphones were around long before Apple, there is no denying that the iPhone had a major influence on the phone market in 2007. What's interesting though is that if history had played out differently, we might have seen the first Apple smartphone roughly a decade earlier.
When the Samsung Galaxy Note hit the scene, the stylus was all-but extinct when it came to most modern mobile devices. Despite this, the Note brought new interest to touch-pens and even Apple seems to recognize there is a market for such a device.
Earlier this month we presented you with rumors that a next generation iPhone might include a 4-inch 2272×1280 beyond Retina IGZO display with a pixel density of 652ppi. Now, those rumors are one step closer to becoming reality.
Until the most recent update to the iPod Nano, one of the coolest things about the little iDevice was that it was very easy to turn the phone into a capable smartwatch.

There has never been a greater time to buy a smartphone I'd wager. From Nokia to Samsung to Apple and even (surprisingly) LG-- there is lot to love. When it comes to iconic smartphone leaders though, we still often hear the names Samsung and Apple come up.

When the Apple iPad mini first hit the retail channels, it sold out pretty quickly and the shipping dates weren't exactly ideal. However, it seems that Apple has finally gotten its ducks in a row and the supply chain is once again ready to roll, because the shipping dates for the iPad mini have been reduced to one week.
When Apple TV originally came out, it was made clear that this was a hobby device and not a major focus for Apple. In January of last year Apple reaffirmed the Apple TV was still a hobby area as well. Now, it seems things are finally changing.

Apple TV rumors have been floating around for years, and for good reason. The idea of an Apple TV is a tempting one, imagine a smart TV with Apple's design aesthetic. Sure, not everyone loves Apple but there are plenty of Apple fans out there that would eat this thing up. Apparently, Time Warner's CEO is one of these individuals.
With the patent wars still going strong, tensions are high in technology land. Just two months after Apple walked away from the courtroom a billion dollars richer, the Silicon Valley giant is trying to further distance itself from Samsung.
It seems that Apple TV and Google TV might be getting even more competition in the set-top box space.

The surprising thing is that even though the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" starts at a full $200 cheaper than the starting price for the Apple iPad ($299 vs. $499), the specs on paper are actually very, very comparable.
Steve Wozniak is one of those guys that most of us just like, regardless of what platform we use or how we feel about Apple. Not only is he one of the founding fathers of the personal computer revolution, he tells things how it is and isn't afraid to be honest, regardless of his affiliation with Apple. When speaking at TEDx Brussels, TechCrunch got a few moments afterwards with WoZ.
Do you love your new Apple iPhone 5 but wish that it had a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard to make text messages and Facebook status updates that much easier? This case could be the perfect fit.
In 2006 the first Intel-based consumer-level Mac computers starting rolling out, and Apple hasn't looked back-- or have they? Apparently Apple is considering yet another architecture move, this time over to ARM.
When it comes to 10-inch tablets, most consumers certainly think of iPad as the most powerful option out there. Sure, there are other high-end 10-inch tablets that are running on Android or Windows 8/RT, but they don't have the display power of the Retina and probably aren't as cutting-edge in processing and graphics as the newest 4th generation Apple iPad. This dynamic is now crashing down thanks to the newly announced Samsung Nexus 10.
Even though the Apple iPhone 5 is still very new, it looks like the cases for the new smartphone are already going on sale. Case in point is this great looking MiniSuit Clipster case for the iPhone 5, which has been slashed by 70% off its regular price.
While Apple might have given us a new iPad 4th gen recently, it is no longer the king of displays. Today Google announced the Samsung Nexus 10 with an extremely impressive 2560 x 1600 display.
I still think that the starting price on the Microsoft Surface should have been closer to $299, but in the $499 range, it competes directly against the recently announced fourth-generation iPad rather than the also recently announced iPad Mini. So, how does it compare?
The iPad Mini is here but some of us are finding it hard to get all that excited when similar tablets cost nearly $100 less. For $199 you can get the Nexus 7, sure it has a smaller screen but it also has a better resolution. You can even get a slightly weaker 7-inch Kindle Fire for just $169. That makes the starting price of $329 just a little hard to swallow.
Just a little over a half year after the release of the iPad 3rd generation model, we already have a successor. The 4th gen iPad doesn't bring tons of changes to the mix but it does have a faster processor and graphics chip, alongside the new Lightning adapter. So you already bought an iPad 3, what do you do? For some of you, an exchange might be possible.
While everyone saw the iPad Mini coming from a million miles away, there was much less talk about the possibility of 4th generation iPad. While the 3rd generation model is just six months old, it also includes a dock connector that Apple is probably trying to get rid of for good.
Apple has a press event today that is almost 100% likely to show us the iPad Mini, among a few other possibilities like refreshes...
It looks like the problems with the new Apple Maps aren't the only ones plaguing the iPhone 5. It turns out that the autocorrect feature is adding "random" accents to anything you type in Italian.
It's not very often that you see great deals on MacBooks, because Apple maintains pretty stringent control over pricing. This is one of those rare occasions where you can save a solid $200 off a new MacBook Pro.
The idea of hiding certain software components on a mobile device isn't exactly new. Many modern Android devices utilize buttons that are completely within the software. When they are needed, they show up. When they aren't-- they vanish temporarily. Apple apparently wants to take the concept further though, and has filed their own patent. In traditional Apple fashion, it takes an idea we've already seen and puts a twist on it.
The Apple Maps fiasco is starting to boil over now. The Maps are starting to improve quite a bit now, even if they are still rather far from catching up with Google Maps. It is easy enough to move on, I mean mistakes happen. This wasn't intentional, Apple had no clue there were bugs, right? Actually--- it seems that they did.
There has been a remarkable amount of drama when it comes to the launch of the iPhone 5. The issues with iOS 6 maps, scuffs on the new phone and Wi-Fi problems are just a few of the issues that plagued the launch. On top of that, many iPhone 5 owners were a bit annoyed to hear that there would be delays with the lightning-to-30-pin adapter.
While iOS 6 is really a pretty impressive update, there are two things that are holding it back and bringing lots of negative attention...
Apple recently updated their AppStore with new guidelines for the submission of apps. One somewhat surprising change may now restrict the way that apps advertise similar apps from other companies.
Another day, another Apple patent revealed. This time around, Apple has a few different patents up for consideration.
