Refurbished iPhones are quite popular for fans who can't afford a new Apple-branded phone, especially the older models which are quite cheap. Even Apple is selling refurbished iPhones, although for much older models you'll have to look elsewhere. Amazon is one of the many U.S. retailers selling refurbished iPhones, but it's not the only one. Walmart had the iPhone 6 Plus on sale for just $200 last month, but Amazon has decided to match the deal three weeks later. The refurbished iPhone 6 Plus now available at Amazon comes with 16GB on board and is fully compatible with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, but it will not work with Sprint and Verizon. It's worth mentioning that the refurbished iPhone 6 Plus is backed by the 90-day Amazon Renewed Guarantee. Also, you get to choose from three color options: Gold, Silver and Space Gray. Keep in mind that these pre-owned phones have been inspected and tested by Amazon-qualified suppliers, but their batteries may not have 100% … [Read more...] about Deal: Unlocked Apple iPhone 6 Plus costs just $200 at Amazon (refurbished)
Iphone 6 plus buy back
When we tested iOS 11 on the iPhone 5S, it was clear that it was slower than iOS 10 had been but that the iPhone 5S’ hardware was fast enough to keep everything usable. That’s especially true if you tempered your expectations: the phone was going on four years old at the time. But at the time, some of you asked us to test a handful of other older iOS devices, particularly the A7-equipped iPad Air and Mini 2 and the A8-equipped iPhone 6 Plus. In the iPads, the same A7 CPU and GPU that powers the iPhone 5S’ screen has to adequately support a tablet with more than three times as many pixels. And the A8 in the 6 Plus draws a 2208×1242 image which is then downscaled to the phone’s 1080p screen; that means using a CPU that was around 25 percent faster than the A7 and a GPU that was only 50 percent faster to support a phone with 277 percent as many pixels. The upshot is that those devices can often feel sluggish or laggy compared to subsequent models. Later Apple … [Read more...] about iOS 12 on the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Mini 2: It’s actually faster!

On Tuesday, those investors learned that they are in line for a big chunk of the money.Apple said it would buy back an additional $100 billion in stock, by far the largest increase in its already historic record of returning capital to investors. The company didn’t provide a timeline for the repurchases. Apple also increased its dividend by 16 percent to 73 cents a share, pushing past Exxon Mobil to become the largest dividend payer, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices.Apple’s stock buyback fits into a broader trend of companies using the financial windfall from President Trump’s tax cut to reward shareholders.

Video By Vadim Yuryev Wednesday, April 18, 2018, 05:19 pm PT (08:19 pm ET) It's been six months since I switched from an iPhone 7 Plus to an iPhone 8 Plus when it and the iPhone 8 were released last September. In this video we take a closer look at the small differences that make, and literally break, Apple's updated handset. Obviously, the most noticeable change to this year's "Plus" model is the glass back. Yes, mine is cracked, but we'll get to that in a minute. The glass rear panel not only looks beautiful, but really gives the iPhone that premium feel. The first thing I noticed is that the new design actually adds a little bit of weight compared to the aluminum chassis of yesteryear, just enough to make the phone feel more solid compared to the 7. My favorite part about the change is that, at least in some regions, Apple has finally removed manufacturer and regulatory markings from the back plate. Now, that text is located in the Settings app. Although the glass back is … [Read more...] about Watch: Six months with iPhone 8 Plus

The backs exhibit a deep red color due to Apple's new all-glass design.The new iPhone 8 color officially launches on Friday April 13, but we were able to see it ahead of time in real-life context, beyond Apple's perfected product shots.Here's what we thought when we had the phones (and Apple's other Product Red accessories) in hand. Prev Page 1 of 15 Next Prev Page 1 of 15 Next The first thing we noticed was that Apple went with black front bezel on this year's Product Red iPhone. Last year's Product Red iPhone 7 had a white front.The switch is much preferred as it blends in with the LCD screen when it's off and is far less distracting than white when watching a movie or a quick YouTube video.The Red iPhone 8 (left) and iPhone 8 Plus … [Read more...] about See the new Product Red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in the wild
