Photos Leaked! Here’s Top Features Expected in Next iPhone Release

August 31st, 2015
Only 9 days are left for Apple's annual new iPhone launch event, where the company will bring its various new products but the obvious stars of the show will be the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. The company has not officially announced the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus yet, but a series of new, high-resolution photographs obtained by 9to5Mac show some new features coming to its

Invites go out for Apple’s September 9 iPhone event

August 27th, 2015

Apple has made it official: the company's next product event happens on September 9 at 10am PT. The event will be held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, which is larger than the "town hall" event space on Apple's campus in Cupertino. Traditionally, larger spaces usually imply larger, more important announcements.

Apple included a cryptic message with its event invite—"Siri, give us a hint"—but our safe expectations for the event are fairly straightforward. Apple is likely to release "S" versions of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus designs with faster internals, better cameras, and Force Touch support among a handful of other features. Those phones will arrive alongside iOS 9, which is usually released to existing iDevices a couple of days before the new phones are available.

Aside from the phones, a new Apple TV is said to bring much faster internals along with a redesigned remote control and a new version of the iOS-derived Apple TV OS that supports Siri, more robust search, and a full App Store and SDK for developers. This would be the product's first major update since 2012. What's not clear is how many of these software changes will (or even can) be backported to the current Apple TV, which Apple has been selling for $69 since March of this year.

Samsung tries to lure away iPhone users with 30-day trial for $1

August 21st, 2015

Samsung's sales have been sliding downward for a while now, and it's getting creative in its attempts to win new users. Today it announced an "Ultimate Test Drive" promotion targeted at iPhone users: Pay $1, and you can try a Galaxy S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, or Galaxy Note 5 for 30 days on your choice of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile.

If that sounds appealing to you, visit the samsungpromotions.com site on your iPhone and choose your carrier and model. As of this writing, it looks like some of the phones are "not available" on AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile, but this may just be an early bug that gets ironed out as the promotion runs.

These phones will come with activated SIM cards so you don't actually need to stop using your iPhone to try one. Unfortunately the promotion doesn't seem to extend to the Galaxy S6, which is a few months old but is the company's standard flagship. Trying any of these phones means trying out Samsung's curved screen experiments or its huge 5.7-inch phablets—that's not necessarily a bad thing, but they might not be for everybody.

Report: Apple’s next iPhone event happens on (or near) September 9th

August 7th, 2015

It's that time of year again: Buzzfeed's John Paczkowski reports that Apple's next iPhone event is going to happen on the week of September 7th, and that currently the 9th is the most likely date. Paczkowski previously reported for Re/code, where he established a track record for accurately predicting Apple event dates.

Apple usually launches new iOS versions on Wednesday the week after the announcement, which means we could get iOS 9 on or around September 16th. If the company holds to its strategy for previous iPhone launches, any new models would follow on that Friday, September 18th. Rumors say that Apple is also planning to announce a new Apple TV and SDK at the September event.

What little we know about the new iPhones suggests we're in for an "S" year, one where we get various internal upgrades without an external redesign. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have both been enormously successful for Apple, so there's no real pressure to change the way they look. Current rumors suggest that the biggest addition will be support for Force Touch, the pressure-sensitivity feature introduced in the Apple Watch and in some recent Macbooks' Force Touch trackpads. Improvements to performance and to the camera are also pretty safe bets.
