The next iPhone could have a bigger display and more battery

While the iPhone 8 isn’t going to be announced until September, this week has been packed with rumors on the upcoming device. And it looks like the display is going to be the main star of the show.
Rumor has it that Apple is going to announce three new devices — two new versions of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, and a new high-end device that could cost more than $1,000. And it looks like the rumors around the display are for this mysterious “iPhone Pro” model.

iPhone vs 7 6S Plus: release date, price, compatibility Apple Watch

It is to iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 7, at least in the minds of those who skipped the launch last month and are now focused on the next big thing from Apple. Several users took a pass on the iPhone 6, as yet to be updated-right, or because they could not afford it or one of several other reasons, and users are looking at what comes next. But just what model (s) of the next Apple iPhone will be launched? What will it cost, and when its release date to arrive? And

how is Apple Watch affecting its release?
The first question may be the most difficult. The story says that Apple will move to the next iPhone 6S, as it has a habit of making a model "S" every two years, effectively keeping each generation iPhone around for the benefit of those who are within two years of renovation cycles with their carriers. But a series of recent changes suggest that Apple may be reconsidering that plan, from changes in naming conventions to more belated interest in fighting movements direct compe…

How Apple Gets New iPhones Do you buy over and over again

Ever wondered why your iPhone seems to slow down after a few years? Why the once-incredible device becomes moody and strives to perform tasks or applications baseload?
The answer lies in Apple's software, and is a key part of the strategy of the company to keep millions of people who buy new iPhones.

Apple launches new mobile operating system each year, and maintains a powerful cycle in motion. Every fall in recent years, people have rushed to download the latest and greatest version of iOS, which is designed to - and as a result, works best - the latest hardware that is also released at the same time. In the months leading up to the release, many application developers furiously updated their applications to the latest operating system.

Here's how it affects you: If you have an iPhone that is more than two years, as Apple recommends you update the operating system a few times since purchase, you may find yourself wanting to throw your phone against wall. It has probably beco…

Apple releases iOS 8.0.2 to fix the problems caused by the 8.0.1 update

After Apple released the iOS 8.0 update for iOS 7, a number of users noticed some bugs with the new operating system, especially with HealthKit application, some third-party keyboards and photo library. Apple then released a 8.0.1 update, which caused even more problemsthat carried TouchID cellular connectivity is turned off for some users.

Apple said fewer than 40,000 users have been affected by these problems, but the company still took the update within 60 minutes of release and users who had already installed to reinstall iOS 8.0 advised.

Yesterday Apple released a new update called 8.0.2, which contains all the fixes for all problems 8.0.1 was supposed to fix, and the errors did cause the 8.0.1 update. 
The new iOS 8.0.2 brings the following list of improvements:


Apple also issued an apology:

"IOS 8.0.2 is now available for users, which fixes an issue that affected iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who downloaded iOS 8.0.1, and includes improvements and fixes bugs in iOS 8.0.…

Apple Pulls iOS 8 Software Update After iPhone Problems

Updated add instructions to remove iOS 8.0.1.

A software update Apple on Wednesday sent did the opposite of what the company intends, off cell phone service in countless iPhones, among other problems.

Twitter and tech news sites quickly overflowed with reports of people who encountered problems after downloading and installing the update, iOS 8.0.1, which was intended to fix several bugs in the operating system for Apple mobile devices. Apple responded by removing the update.

This is not the first time an Apple software update has caused, rather than fixed, device problems. But it seems to be one of the first times that the company has pulled the update. "We are actively investigating these reports and provide information as quickly as we can," Apple said in a statement. "Meanwhile, we have removed the update iOS 8.0.1."

The problem seems to mainly affect users of the latest iPhones, 6 and 6 Plus, not older iOS devices. Twitter users reported that the update also …

Android and Windows Phone have unique capabilities, but the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is still best

Summary: Today's modern smartphone operating systems are all worthy of consideration and there are benefits to all of them not found on the others.

The more I continue to use the new Apple iPhone 6 Plus the more I am convinced it is the smartphone for me. However, as a regular Windows Phone and Android user, there are still a few things I do miss from these two mobile platforms.

Prior to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus announcements, I listed five things I doubted would come to the new iPhone and was thankfully proven wrong by three of the five.

The iPhone 6 Plus comes with VoLTE
support (on T-Mobile and Verizon), long battery life, and NFC. Granted NFC is still very limited, actually you can't even use it until Apple Pay launches.

The price of Android and Windows Phone smartphones is much less than the iPhone 6 Plus and a benefit of both operating systems. Looking at the true full price you will find high end Android smartphones priced $150 to $250 less than the 16GB iPhone 6…

New Apple iOS 8 Mobile Software to arrive on Wednesday

Apple One-Click Link U2 remove junk from iTunes Marks fault Marketing Textbook

Execution is everything

Musical tastes are personal. And it seems that force-feeding people a new album from U2, unsolicited, doesn’t go over well.
Apple giving away U2′s new Songs of Innocence is in itself not a bad thing. But there are two problems. One, the album is poorly reviewed – think Paul McCartney “Wonderful Christmastime” rather than Abbey Road. Two, because the album simply appeared in purchased music – and because iTunes (cleverly enough) displays what you’ve purchased from iCloud – it showed up in people’s collections when it didn’t belong.
So, we’ve learned something. This doesn’t work. And as always, you can’t really buy marketing. That is, sure, Aphex Twin rented a blimp, but in the end, they had more successful viral marketing because they let their fans choose to spread their new release. U2 tried to force that promotion, and even though Apple and U2 are loved by many people, the combination comes across as corporate and inauthentic. Peter Cohen shouts at the Inter…
