9to5Mac released a photo last Thursday that allegedly shows two of the new 2018 iPhones. The picture, if authentic, shows the new iPhone and a larger-screen variant both in gold. 9to5Mac believes that Apple will launch a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch model named the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The "S" name would be a return to form for Apple, which has a history of adding the letter "S" to iPhone models with updated components, new features and no major changes to the exterior design.(Apple did not respond to CNET's request to comment on the 9to5Mac stories.)BGR and 9to5Mac both reported that Apple won't call the larger model "Plus," as it has done in previous years. Instead it will opt for the nomenclature "Max", as in iPhone XS Max. We'll know how accurate 9to5Mac's reporting is in less than a week.A week ago, Apple sent out invites for an event on Sept. 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. The … [Read more...] about All of the rumors on price, specs and release date for the new 2018 iPhone XS, iPhone X Plus, iPhone 9:
Iphone 6 vs iphone 7
The iPhone 6 is about to become one of the biggest upgrades in iPhone history, with expectations for not one, but two larger-screen models: a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 coming first in the fall, and a 5.5-inch model to arrive shortly after. While we’re still months away from their official unveiling, Sonny Dickson, the Australian kid who made a name for himself last year, leaking pre-release images of the iPhone 5s and 5c, now strikes again with full mockups showing what the 4.7” and 5.5” iPhone 6 are very likely to look like.Both models look stunningly thin, and also very similar in terms of design, adopting iPad mini-like aesthetics with curvier edges. The larger screens in both have forced some changes in terms of button layout - the lock key is no longer on top (where it’d be hard to reach), but has moved to the right side, closer to the thumb (if you’re right handed). On the back, Apple has reduced the antennas, leaving just small strips of plastic that almost … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 6 leaks: 4.7” and 5.5” model mockups compared
While I was shooting images for our all-shipping-iPhones camera test (SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, and 7 Plus telephoto), I had quite a few people ask on Twitter about the iPhone 6. I didn't include it in our big test simply because it was too many iPhones to carry around NYC by myself — five was pushing it! — but I still wanted to give iPhone 6 owners an idea of how their shots might compare to the new 7 camera. So, without further delay, here's a quick test comparing all of Apple's 4.7-inch phones: I went through a variety of common shooting situations, as well as a section on color tests. We're working on getting galleries to properly display in the iMore app and on RSS; until then, to properly view these photos, please visit our website. How we tested I shot with the iPhone 6, 6s, and 7 over the course of a few days using just the phones and the Camera app. The resulting photos haven't been touched up in any way — they're exactly the way the … [Read more...] about Camera tests: Battle of the 4.7-inch iPhones 6, 6s, and 7!
One year ago, Apple broke free from the uniformity and unveiled not one, but two smartphones - the iPhone 5s and its cheaper, toned-down variation, the colorful iPhone 5c. That was the first time Apple unveiled a duo of devices, but surely, it wasn't the last one. Today, Apple once again a double crop of devices, but unlike the 5s and 5c, the newest iPhone smartphones are quite different from one another in the most noticeable aspect - their size.Probably started by Samsung's original Galaxy Note, a certain trend has existed for the past few years, which pushed most of Apple's rivals to manufacture devices that gradually increased in screen estate and overall size. Until now, Apple refused to conform to this tendency, but the latest iPhone generation is Cupertino's first foray into this trend. But how do the newest iPhone crop fare against the iPhone 5s, the latest 4-incher that Apple launched? We were quite eager to put the trio in an improvised showdown and check out how they … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 6 vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Apple iPhone 5s: specs comparison
Apple’s baby in the iPhone 6 is no doubt the phone to beat at the moment, which shouldn’t be too much of shocker considering that sales have been pretty upbeat. Of course, it’s proven itself in being a versatile thing when it comes to taking snapshots, but the HTC Desire EYE is gunning to give it some heated competition. Despite it not being necessarily being tagged as a flagship device, we can’t count out the Desire EYE, seeing that it bears many of the specs and qualities indicative of a high-end phone.DesignIt’s that age old comparison between plastic versus metal, so we know what that entails and whatnot, as both materials offer their own unique qualities. Sure, it might not have as much of a premium quality to it, but the HTC Desire EYE’s plastic construction permits it to have an IPX7 certification for water resistance, which is undoubtedly helpful for certain situations. In contrast, the iPhone 6 offers a more premium finish with its aluminum … [Read more...] about HTC Desire EYE vs Apple iPhone 6: first look
