Two of Apple's most popular products over the past year could be subject to some rather nasty malfunctions according to the company. Apple has initiated replacement programs for both the 13-inch MacBook Pro (without Touch Bar) and the iPhone X, which was recently discontinued. In the case of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, Apple warns that a "limited number" of systems with 128GB or 256GB SSDs could experience data loss and complete failure of the drive. Needless to say, this is a serious issue, especially if customers don't have a recently completed Time Machine backup. The company says that MacBook... Read more...
When Apple launched the iPhone X, it went through extremes to make the display are of the smartphone as large as possible while minimizing the bezels. This meant the introduction of the notch at the top of the screen and the deletion of the home button where the fingerprint scanner was previously placed. Rather than put the fingerprint scanner on the back of the iPhone, Apple went to Face ID where your face serves as your password. The first reported instance of law enforcement having an iPhone X owner unlock their device with their face has now occurred. Forbes reports that when the FBI searched... Read more...
Oppo's Find X smartphone launched during the summer, and it had a very attractive design that eschewed the notch design that the iPhone X popularized (and was quickly followed by many others). Instead, the Find X got around the need for a notch by using a motorized, pop-up camera that hid away when not needed. A new version of that smartphone has been tipped by a TENNA (the Chinese equivalent of the FCC) listing, and it will have a feature that is a world first. The TENNA listing that surfaced shows that a new Find X version will have 10GB of RAM inside along with 256GB of storage space. Ice Universe... Read more...
When it comes to the shameless copying of competing smartphones, we don't often think of Motorola. However, the company's latest P30 smartphone is such a blatant copy of the iPhone X that we wonder what exactly was going on in Motorola's design studio.  From the front, the P30 shares much with the iPhone X including its wide and similarly-shaped display notch and trim bezels around the sides. The only place where the P30 really differs is at the bottom, where it has a larger bottom bezel to make way for the internal display connector. Out back, things are also eerily similar, with the same... Read more...
Yesterday, Samsung officially launched the Galaxy Note 9, which is its latest and greatest smartphone. Naturally, everyone is wanting to compare the Galaxy Note 9 to the iPhone X, which has been out for nearly a year at this point. Now, Samsung is looking to take some additional shots at the iPhone X with a fresh round of "Ingenious" ads. The new ads, “Pen” and “Power”, highlight two of the headliner features of the Galaxy Note 9. The first commercial dubbed “Pen” talks up the Galaxy Note 9’s powerful Bluetooth-enabled S Pen. A customer talks with... Read more...
We're roughly a month away from when Apple is rumored to be launching its 2018 family of iPhone devices. According to various sources over the past few months, there will be three standard models available at launch: a 6.1-inch LCD variant along with 5.8- and 6.5-inch OLED models. Earlier this week, references were found in iOS 12 beta code suggesting that a dual-SIM version of the new iPhones will be made available. Now, according to the Economic Daily News, it's being reported that the dual-SIM capabilities will be limited to the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone -- the cheapest of the three.... Read more...
We're a little more than a month away from when Apple is expected to reveal its 2018 family of iPhones. 2017 saw the launch of three iPhones: the evolutionary iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus along with the radical (for Apple) iPhone X. For 2018, we're expecting to see more design evolution with 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch models blanketing the bottom and top of the iPhone X respectively. Benjamin Geskin, who has a reputation of leaking Apple news ahead of schedule, has come into possession of dummy units of both the 6.1-inch iPhone and the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus (we don't know if this will...

Smartphone fans can thank the iPhone X for ushering in an era of insanely high-priced flagship smartphones. While Apple has certainly sold a lot of iPhone X models, Cupertino wasn't exactly happy with the sales numbers and has been looking for ways to slash costs and increase sales. Other smartphone makers seem to have missed that pricing issue and the fact that most smartphone buyers have opted to keep their devices or buy cheaper models as evidenced by smartphone market stagnation. Rumors have even recently claimed that the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note families could be merged in the future.... Read more...
If you buy a smartphone that has an OLED screen in it today, odds are that the panel is made by one of two South Korean tech giants: Samsung or LG. However, there is some fresh competition brewing in China. Chinese manufacturer BOE Technology Group is looking to become a supplier for OLED screens to Apple according to a new report. BOE is already a giant in producing LCDs and already has an "in" with Apple because it makes displays for iPads and MacBooks. BOE won't be able to supply Apple with OLED screens in the near term; the company is said to be at least a few years out. People claiming... Read more...
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Smartphone users know that there are hordes of counterfeit devices and apps out there that are meant to give nefarious parties access to your device and personal information. In the case of counterfeit devices, they often have the same general appearance as their intended target, but often miss the mark in some glaring areas. Such is the case with this Apple iPhone X counterfeit device that was discovered for sale in China at a low, low price of $100 (compared to the $999 starting MSRP for the real deal). At that price, you would assume that... Read more...
Samsung never misses an opportunity to throw some shade at Apple, its main rival in the mobile sector. There is no love lost between these two tech giants, and if anyone needs reminding of that, just check out Samsung's latest advertisement poking fun at the iPhone X. This time it's not over the infamous notch, however, but the phone's download speeds. The ad begins by spoofing the Genius Bar. It's titled "Ingenius: Speed" and it features what is supposed to be an Apple Store employee. A customer walks in, who the employee instantly recognizes as Rosie (from previous ads), and asks about the iPhone... Read more...
One of the big changes that Apple made to the iPhone X when it launched last year was to integrate Face ID rather than Touch ID into the device. A new report is going around citing sources in the supply chain that claim Apple plans to increase Face ID availability. According to this report, all the 2018 iPhone models will get Face ID when they launch. Face ID is seen by many analysts as being a significant feature for Apple when compared to the facial recognition that Android devices sport. Apple uses other sensors alongside the camera in its facial recognition technology including an infrared... Read more...
The launch of Apple's 2018 family of iPhones is just a few months away, which means that the rumors surrounding the smartphones are starting to ramp up dramatically. The latest info leak suggests that at least one member of the new family will be available with more colorful finishes, which is a break from the typically drab iPhone color palette.  The news comes from reliable Apple leaker, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who claims that the entry-level 6.1-inch iPhone will be available in grey, white, blue, red and orange. An iPhone hasn’t launched with that wide range of color options... Read more...
Why spend $999 on a trendy smartphone when you can spend hundreds less on a similar-looking device with many of the same features? That is the question that many of Apple’s faithful will be asking when the incoming 2018 class of iPhones arrive this fall. According to a new report, Apple is gearing up for a rather big upgrade cycle this time around and is expecting for customers to flock to the upcoming 6.1-inch iPhone. This particular iPhone is expected to have a design similar to the current OLED-equipped iPhone X (complete with a display notch), but use a cheaper, traditional LCD display.... Read more...
