It looks as though we won't have to wait until the fall for the first crop of 2018 iPhones from Apple to appear. The successor to the iPhone SE, which is long overdue, is said to launch by June of this year, and perhaps as early as May. We've heard plenty of rumors about the so-called iPhone SE 2 over the past year, and the latest suggests that the smartphone will gain a glass back, which would put it in on even footing with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. This glass back will allow the iPhone SE 2 to support wireless charging, which Apple finally embraced in 2017 for its smartphones (the Apple Watch... Read more...
Chatter is starting to ramp up surrounding an update to Apple's iPhone SE entry-level smartphone. Apple first introduced the iPhone SE in early 2016, and it was little more than an iPhone 5s smartphone that was modernized with an iPhone 6s-class A9 processor, Apple Pay support and improved cameras. For people that were disappointed with Apple’s move to larger 4.7- and 5.5-inch form-factors (at the time), the 4-inch iPhone SE represented a modern, lithe smartphone for those people that didn't want to pay flagship prices. Earlier this year, Apple shuffled the storage SKUs a bit, but the smartphone... Read more...
When it comes to today's smartphones, it seems as though bigger is better in the eyes of consumers. The original iPhone shipped with a 3.5-inch display, but the current iPhone X ships with a 5.8-inch display. Likewise, Samsung is currently selling the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 which have 6.2- and 6.3-inch displays respectively. According to a new report out of South Korea, Samsung may be looking to go in the opposite direction with a Galaxy S9 Mini. This would be a premium device in the same mold as the expected Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, but with a 4-inch-class display. The Galaxy S9 Mini would... Read more...
Well, it’s not the highly-anticipated iPhone 8, but a few new products that we have already told you about are on the way. Apple today announced the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which join an array of existing color options: Black, Jet Black, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold. This is the first iPhone with a red aluminum unibody design and marks the latest partnership between Apple and (RED). “Since we began working with (RED) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products, from the original iPod nano (PRODUCT)RED...

Apple introduced its mainstream iPhone SE earlier this year to fill a sizable gap in its smartphone lineup. Priced from $399, the iPhone SE crams in the brainpower from the iPhone 6s (Apple A9 processor, M9 motion processor) into the body of the iPhone 5s. Given that the iPhone 6s starts at $649, the iPhone SE represents a pretty good bargain if you’re firmly entrenched in iOS land. The latest research from Kantar confirms the iPhone SE’s popularity, at least in two regions around the globe: Europe and the United States. During the second quarter of 2016 in Great Britain, the iPhone SE managed... Read more...
The latest global smartphone sales data is out from Kantar Worldpanel Comtech, and things are looking decidedly rosy for market leader Android. Android’s growth is accelerating, with iOS and especially Windows Phone taking the brunt of its punches. For the first quarter of 2016, Android showed remarkable gains in the EU5 (Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Spain), where it picked up 7.1 percentage points to hit a 75.6 percent share of the smartphone market. Among the EU5, Android showed the biggest gains in Italy and France, where its share rose 12.1 and 9.7 percentage points respectively year-over-year.... Read more...
Late last month, Apple reinvigorated its 4-inch form-factor with the release of the iPhone SE. Although everyone saw the device as an updated iPhone 5s, the design of the smartphone actually dates back to the iPhone 5, which was released in 2012. So why did Apple go back to its archives to resurrect a nearly 4-year old design and update it with modern internals? Well, Apple had to quell the Apple faithful that balked at the larger 4.7- and 5.5-inch iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus series of smartphones and it needed a cheaper device to appeal to customers at the lower-end of the market. While the iPhone... Read more...
Apple turned a few heads and sparked quite a bit of interest when it announced the iPhone SE in late March. The iPhone SE, which comes from a company notorious for launching high-priced smartphones, includes the high performance internals of Apple’s current flagships at an attractive $399 starting price ($249 less than the iPhone 6s). Apparently, $399 isn’t cheap enough for the Walmart, as the company is taking $100 off the price of the iPhone SE, which makes it an even more attractive proposition for the Apple faithful (and perhaps Android users that have traditionally thumbed their noses at Apple’s...

Following months of rumors and speculation, Apple two weeks ago did what everyone pretty much expected it would, which was announce a smaller size iPhone model with modern guts. Dubbed the iPhone SE, it's not so much a new iPhone as it is a shrinkage of the iPhone 6s. Lest there be any doubt about this, a teardown analysis of the iPhone SE shows parts from multiple generation iPhones stuffed into a 4-inch body.We're not saying there's anything wrong with that, we're just calling a spade a spade (or calling a fig a fig, as the Greeks used to say). In this case, the iPhone SE is a mash-up of iPhone... Read more...
Not even Apple can keep a secret in the Internet era. Ahead of today's scheduled media event, there were rumors and speculation that Apple would introduce smaller size iPhone and iPad Pro devices, and sure enough, those were the highlights of what Apple announced today. Specifically, Apple added a 4-inch iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro to its growing lineup of mobile gadgets. The press event began with Apple talking about its carbon footprint and its goal of having all of its facilities run on renewable energy. Apple isn't quite there on a global basis, though 93 percent of its facilities are in... Read more...
Apple has finally confirmed what we’ve known for the past two weeks thanks to well-informed leaks. It will hold a keynote event at its Cupertino headquarters on March 21st to announce a handful of new products. As is usually the case with its press invites, Apple simply says “Let us loop you in,” leaving us to guess at what’s in store for the keynote. Luckily, we already have a good idea about what will be announced in a little less than two weeks. The most high-profile launch will no doubt be the so-called iPhone SE, which will reportedly feature an updated iPhone 5s form-factor (including the... Read more...
It looks as though Apple has finally selected in a date for the unveil of its new 4-inch iPhone and next generation 9.7-inch iPad. Multiple sources have confirmed via their internal sources at Apple that the keynote will take place on March 21st (and not March 15th as previously reported). Interestingly enough, that is one day prior to when Apple will face off with the U.S. Government over its reluctance to further assist in unlocking an iPhone 5c tied to the San Bernardino mass shooting. The most anticipated product on tap for the March unveiling is no doubt the iPhone SE (which has been previously... Read more...
