The new iPhone 6 duo is official and Apple launched its new series of promo videos for the phones, complete with the obligatory Jony Ive infused product showcase.
The three ads feature the iOS 8 Health app and the phone duo itself in order to familiarize you with the new company line-up.
With the iPhone 6 Plus now official, we can finally pit it against the heavyweight, plus-sized Android superstars – the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the LG G3.
The iPhone 6 Plus has a screen large enough to be next to the Note 4 and G3, but is it mature enough? Well, in the display department the 5.5″ size is the same as the G3′s and in the same ballpark as the 5.7″ of the Note 4. However, the iPhone 6 Plus features a 1080p resolution, whereas its rivals are boasting QHD screens.
The Apple iPhone 6 is larger, faster, stronger and readier than ever to fight the rivals on the Android side of the battlefield.
That’s why we made it meets the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. It will have a tough job, as both Samsung and Sony have really upped their game for their latest compact flagships.
Today during its big event, Apple didn’t only introduce new hardware. There was another big thing announced, and that is Apple Pay.
This is the company’s own interpretation of a mobile-based payments system. It works with the NFC capability built into the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, alongside the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. It will even support the Apple Watch when that will be out.
The Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are official and are the biggest smartphones the company has done to date. Apple fans will either love or hate the growth of their favorite smartphone, but let’s check out what are the other differences the new duo brings.
To do so, we’ve put up together a handy table to show you what has been improved and what’s new in an easy to glance manner.
On stage at the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch announcement today, Apple announced the availability details regarding their upcoming Apple iOS 8.
Apple iOS 8 will be available as a free download on September 17.
During its big event today, Apple announced a lot of new things as you may already know – the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus, and the Apple Watch. But besides all of that, the company also shared a big stat relating to its iTunes App Store. This, it turns out, now has more than 1.3 million apps for iOS in it.
The first public beta version of the Opera Mini browser for Windows Phone is now out in Microsoft’s dedicated app store. You can grab it and test it on your device, as long as it runs Windows Phone 8.x.
The beta was announced last week, when Opera prompted people to sign up in order to join its “beta testing group”. That seemed to imply that only those who signed up would be able to play with the Opera Mini beta, but that’s not the case – anyone can get it from the Windows Phone store.
WhatsApp, the popular messenger for mobiles that recently fell under Facebook’s wing, has received an update to its iOS version.
The latest build includes the ability to share slow-motion videos directly from within the app, add captions added to photos, and archive chat logs and contact groups.
Sony has shared information on its developer blog on how to get started creating HTML5 and Android TV apps for its upcoming TVs and home entertainment systems. In the process, the company also spilled loose details on its upcoming lineup of Android TV products.
Sony TVs running Android TV will start arriving in 2015 with the company waving goodbye to the Google TV platform. Google Cast is also going to be supported on select Bravia models. The company’s Blu-Ray and Home Theater system products will support HTML5 apps, too.
Google’s Play Movies & TV app for iOS got treated to a significant update. Version 1.2.0 of the app brings offline movie playback to the Apple’s platform.
The app’s newly built-in functionality should appeal to those with limited amount of data in their wireless plan, or simply spend time away from less than perfect network coverage.
