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.
When it comes to offering protection for your mobile phone, one of the most trusted names in the industry has to be OtterBox. And now you can get an OtterBox Defender Series Case for iPhone for just under thirty bucks. That’s almost half price.
The iPhone has been the center piece for many Chinese knockoffs over the past few years, but as the Chinese smartphone market has evolved, most of the poor-build products have been left behind. These days we are instead greeted with cheap but durable, reasonably spec’d devices.
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.
Heading over to Apple’s website, you will find that the average arrival time for the iPhone 5 is now estimated at 3-4 weeks. Why so long? The obvious reason is that they sold like hotcakes and that Apple is having trouble coming up with enough shipments. A new report suggests an alternative, though. The problem has to do with the aluminum casing and the scratching problems that have been reported.
A new product by a start-up business on Indigogo is reshaping the way cases interact with our smart phones. This case isn’t just about protecting your iPhone; it’s also about turning it into something that makes the extra thickness do more than just add an extra layer of padding.
When it comes to Android fans, most of them are more than happy to poke fun at Apple’s iOS whenever they have the chance. With that in mind, the so-named “Fake iPhone 5 Launcher” might have been made partially as a joke or a prank to tease iPhone 5 users, but it is a very real and working launcher released over at XDA Developers.
A new rumor suggests that at least three people ‘close to Apple’ have confirmed that there is already a 16:9 iPad in the works.
We were told at the Apple A6 chip inside the new iPhone 5 was faster, but it turns out that it’s even faster than the 1.02GHz previously reported. A more recent benchmark has it running at 1.3GHz.
We recently reported that many iPhone 5 users are having problems with their new phones arriving with scuffs and dents. Unfortunately, the iPhone 5’s problems don’t end there. Apparently there is a keyboard issue, as well.
What if you went to pull out that brand new phone only to find it wasn’t so shiny after all? This is the nightmare that several new iPhone 5 users are now reporting.
The assumption is that when you buy the iPhone 5 on subsidy that it’d be locked to that service provider. That’s mostly true, except when you buy it from Verizon, because it comes unlocked.
How well did the iPhone 5 announcement go? Some users out there on the web have complained that it might not be as hardware-capable as many of the high-end Android devices out there, but is that going to slow down its success? Apparently not.
In the past Apple has had problems with shortages when launching new iPhone devices, and it seems that the iPhone 5 might not be any different. Apple already added the iPhone 5, new iPods and tons of accessories to its online store but something has started to happe- the dates for shipping have begun to slip.
The U.S. Market might be a leader when it comes to 4G LTE, but what about other cutting-edge tech like HD Voice? One of the new features announced for the iPhone 5 was support of HD voice, which increases fidelity of voice calls.
T-Mobile and Orange recently announced they were coming together with EE to bring 4G LTE to the United Kingdom. At the time of the announcement they planed to roll out several great devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 820, and others. That wasn’t it though, one device was purposely left off: the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5 has arrived, but what does that mean for the iPhone 4S? Which is the better deal and how do they compare? While the iPhone will run you $199 for a 16GB model, you can get a 4S with 16GB of memory for just $99 with the same two year contract.
Apple’s newest iPhone announcement is coming, and soon. With less than a day before the announcement we are bound to hear lots of last minute rumors or bits of news that potentially confirm some of the things we already know about the new devices coming tomorrow.
This iPhone 5 concept video is pretty dramatic to say the least. Siri goes as far as tracking your packages to determine arrival time, reschedules your canceled flights, oh, and not to mention the pinch to zoom that expands your iPhone 5 in to an iPad Mini, and then a full size iPad.
A Chinese pop star by the name of Jimmy Lin has just attracted over 100,000 comments in only a matter of a few hours. His post was through the popular site, Sina Weibo- which is sort of like the Chinese version of Facebook and Twitter combined. What was the post that is generating so many comments and large amounts of buzz? The Chinese pop star claims to have in his possession an iPhone 5. You might wonder how a Chinese pop star would get his hands on the iPhone 5, well before its release.
Now, there is further evidence that the iPhone 5 release date will be September, thanks to an employee announcement from Verizon Wireless. You see, they blacked out vacation requests for the period covering September 21 to September 30.
Let’s face it, most smartphone users out there use there devices for what? Random apps, emails, a few text messages? How about calling? Not so much, huh? The truth is that ‘calling people’ is probably at the backburner of reasons why you make use of your smart-phone, ironically.
Now, we’re hearing that Apple will make the formal reveal of the next iPhone on September 12th and that the first batch will become available on September 21st.
It’s pretty much for certain that the new iPhone will be revealed to us next month and we’re fully expecting a larger display, but it looks like the new iOS6 comes with an extra bonus to take advantage of that extra screen real estate.
Bummed out by the idea that you’ll have to wait all the way until October to get your hands on the next iPhone? According to sources reporting to iMore, you won’t have to, instead the iPhone 5 may be announced at a special event on September 12th of this year with a launch to follow just nine days later on the 21st.
With the iPhone 5 expected for launch sometime in the next few months, it seems that we have new rumors and leaks to cover on a near-daily basis. The most recent leak is from iLab Factory, which claims to have a fully-assembled iPhone 5 casing in their possession.
There have been many users who feel like the change isn’t a good one and are angry that they’ll have to get new docking station clocks and other components in order to make the switch to the iPhone 5 and future iPad offerings, but this isn’t necessarily the case. The inside sources within Apple’s supply chain have confirmed that there will be an official adapter that allows the iPhone 5 to connect and work with the older 30-pin dock connector.
One of the newest patents awarded to Apple is something called iTravel, which is an NFC-based transportation check-in system.
What if the iPhone were semi-permanently attached to your hand in some weird twist of bio-electronic engineering? We’re getting closer to that reality with the so-called iPhone 5 Spider concept.
We can pretty safely assume that Apple is going to unveil the next iPhone this fall, but now anonymous “industry sources” have indicated that the so-called iPhone 5 will be boasting a quad core processor.
Rumors continue to pop up now and then about the upcoming iPhone, even though its more than likely at this point that such a device isn’t coming until later this year, probably around October. One such new rumor has to do with with near field communication (NFC).
What looks to be like the most legitimate piece of iPhone 5 info we have yet seen, this video of a black unibody iPhone 5 from ETradeSupply is quite convincing.
This super retina display LG was showing off at Display Week boasts a 1920 x 1080 resolution, an impressive 440 pixels per inch, and the crispest, smoothest RGB you’ve ever seen on a 5-inch screen.
Recently most of the iPhone 5 rumors have been associated with the smaller looking port that many are claiming could be a micro-USB port or even a new MagSafe connector. Now we have a look at a four-inch long front panel that claimst to be part of the new iPhone.
One of the ‘features’ supposedly in the iPhone 5 has had everyone talking recently, and that is the inclusion of a smaller port. While some believe this could be Apple’s move to the mini-USB standard that almost every other device on Earth uses, others say Apple will stay with a proprietary port.
The next-generation iPhone is still several months away, but the latest set of leaked photos give us a great look at the back of the new iPhone. And then there’s that small dock connector too.
It has been the general consensus among most people that the “next iPhone” will have a larger display, but now we’ve got some physical evidence to back that claim. This “leaked” front panel is coming by way of one of Apple’s suppliers.
Rumors continue to strongly suggest that the next-generation iPhone will feature a 4-inch screen. According to industry sources reporting to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is has already begun ordering this new larger screens which will replace the current 3.5-inch standard that has been used since the original iPhone surfaced in 2007.
There is a limit to how big the display of a smartphone can be and it’s always better if we can watch photos and videos on devices with bigger screens. But in the future, a new LED projector being developed by the researchers at Fraunhofer could be able to help.
Another day, another iPhone rumor, and another iPhone concept. While it doesn’t look like the boys and girls in Cupertino have quite figured out how to make a T-1000 just yet, it looks like French designer Antoine Brieux is applying some liquid metal to his latest iPhone concept.
There have been a ton of rumors about upcoming features in the iPhone 5, but here’s one that probably isn’t going to be happening. A humorous little video has hit the net that shows a new feature of the iPhone that should keep theft down to a minimum.
It’s starting to sound more and more like the iPhone 5 (or whatever the new iPhone will be called) is going to get bumped up to a four-inch screen, so how can we expect it to look? The latest crop of mockups offer a glimpse into the future design cue of the upcoming iPhone model.
