Apple may have put up some record numbers for revenue in its last earnings report, but the company reportedly isn’t seeing the kind of demand that it expected for the high-end iPhone X smartphone. Supposed weak demand has allegedly led Apple to slash production of the smartphone in 2018. That reduced production means that Apple suppliers, like Samsung, are now scrambling to find other customers to keep their production lines humming. Reports indicate that Samsung is currently searching for a new customer that can use its excess capacity to produce OLED screens -- capacity that was originally... Read more...
When Apple's iPhone X was first revealed in the fall of 2017, smartphone users of the “Android persuasion” were quick to point and laugh at the awkward notch at the top of the display. The eyesore houses the front camera and sensors necessary for Face ID facial recognition. However, it appears that Apple may have the last laugh, as Google is reportedly preparing its upcoming Android P operating system to embrace smartphones with notched displays. This news comes to us country of Bloomberg, which says that Google is overhauling the Android user interface and is modifying APIs to allow... Read more...
The Apple iPhone X has been criticized since its launch for things ranging from its high price of entry to the notch atop the screen to the various issues owners have faced with such a high-end device. iPhone X owners are now complaining of another issue that makes it difficult to answer incoming phone calls. Reports are spreading of an incoming call bug that prevents the screen of the phone from lighting up when the phone starts to ring.  When this happens, the user is unable to answer the calls for up to ten seconds according to some reports. This means the phone starts to ring and before... Read more...
Analysts have been sour on Apple's flagship iPhone X device, slashing their sales forecasts on reports of lower-than-expected demand. Whatever the official tally, however, it did not stop Apple from posting another record quarter. The Cupertino company raked in $88.3 billion in revenue during its fiscal 2018 first quarter ended December 30, 2017, a jump of 13 percent compared to the same quarter a year ago and an all-time high. Quarterly earnings hit $3.89 per diluted share, up 16 percent and also a record. Apple's new iPhone handsets drove those record-setting figures, including its iPhone 8,... Read more...
The iPhone X might not be selling anywhere near the level Apple had anticipated. Multiple analysts have recently cut their sales forecast based on lower than expected demand, and now there is a report in Japan claiming Apple is telling suppliers that it slashing its iPhone X orders in half to 20 million units, for the first quarter of 2018. There is no mention of the where that information is coming from, only that Apple had original intended to sell more than 40 million iPhone X devices in the first quarter. However, sales during the holiday shopping season to end 2017 were apparently low in key... Read more...
Apple is all about the profit margin when it comes to its devices, and the iPhone X is no exception. The high-end smartphone hasn't sold as strongly as Apple wanted according to some reports, with some citing the high cost of entry. Shipment estimates for Q1 2018 were allegedly slashed in late December as demand during the crucial holiday shopping season for the iPhone X was soft. A new report is making the rounds concerning the iPhone X from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who just so happens to be one of the most accurate analysts out there with regards to all things Apple. According to... Read more...

Samsung is not too far away from its big debut of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship smartphones, which are tipped to make their big debut at MWC 2018. We already know about one of the processors that will go into the U.S. version of the Galaxy S9 family: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Today, however, Samsung is spilling the beans on its Exynos 9810 processor that will find its way into the international versions of the smartphones. Samsung says that its new 8-core SoC has four third-generation custom high-performance cores operating at a heady 2.9GHz. For less demanding tasks, there are four... Read more...
Over the past few weeks, iOS enthusiasts that have clung to the practice of jailbreaking have anxiously awaited a public software release to "unleash the beast" so to speak. The first proof-of-concept untethered jailbreak was announced earlier this month by Alibaba’s Pandora Labs, which was based on the work of Google Project Zero researcher Ian Beer. Today, there's a fully-fledged jailbreak that has been released for Apple's current generation of smartphones, which include the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X (and all other 64-bit iOS devices for that matter). The jailbreak, which is... Read more...
Analysts are hitting Apple and its suppliers hard this week, alleging that shipment forecasts for the high-end iPhone X smartphone have been slashed for Q1 2018. The reduced shipping forecast comes on the heels of lackluster demand for the high-end smartphone at the end of the holiday shopping season. Analyst Zhang Bin from Sinolink Securities Co. issued a report on Monday that claims shipments might be as low as 35 million units for the quarter. That would make sales 10 million units under the prediction for the quarter. Zhang wrote, "After the first wave of demand has been fulfilled, the market... Read more...
Another day, another Face ID fail that allows unauthorized people to log into the iPhone X. This time around, no creepy masks or 3D printing hardware was needed. The two women who can unlock the same iPhone X are not even related, as we have seen in the past when a child was able to unlock his mother's iPhone X using Face ID. The two women are colleagues that work for the Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation in China. One of the women, Ms. Yan, purchased an iPhone X and when she found that one of her coworkers could routinely unlock her iPhone using her face, which wasn't registered in the device,... Read more...
One week ago, we brought you news of an exploit discovered by a Google Project Zero researcher that had the potential to jailbreak iPhones. Jailbreaking allows users to install unsupported and unauthorized applications and services on an iPhone, but also leaves the devices more vulnerability to malware and other security risks. At the time, it was thought that the exploit would allow for a tethered jailbreak, meaning that the device would need to be hooked up to a computer with a USB cable each time that it was rebooted (to reinject the code). Earlier this week, the Project Zero researcher, Ian... Read more...
The iPhone X might be the flagship of Apple's smartphone family, but that doesn't mean that it comes out on top in Consumer Reports' latest round of testing. In fact, the iPhone X ranked behind two current generation flagship smartphones from Samsung and two of its newer iPhone siblings. First, let's start off with the iPhone X's positives, which include its gorgeous 5.8-inch OLED display (which is manufactured by Samsung). It was praised for its deep black tones and minimal clarity degradation when viewing the display from off angles. Although the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were also deemed to... Read more...
Apple iPhone X production has stabilized more than a month after the flagship smartphone was initially made available to customers. Shipping times that originally were estimated at 5 to 6 weeks have now shrunk down to just one week from the time an order is placed. That tightening up of the delivery window also means that Apple has now made available a SIM-free version of the iPhone X. As with previous generation iPhones, the SIM-free version of the iPhone X is compatible with both CDMA and GSM networks. In addition, you are not tied to any particular carrier, and are free to jump from carrier... Read more...
