Apple announces new docks for the iPhone 5c and the 5s

by 12 comments

Apple has been making docks for the iPhone, iPod and the iPad for a while now. But last year’s iPhone 5 launch didn’t see the release of a corresponding dock, which would have led most people to believe that Apple has given up on the idea.

But turns out, that is not the case. This year, Apple has not one but two docks for both the new iPhones, and they are available for $29 each. The docks are slightly different, with the 5c dock having a bigger slot to accommodate the slightly different shape. By the looks of things it seems you can use the 5c dock with both the 5c and the 5s but the 5s dock can only accommodate the 5s and the older 5. Read more »

Apple iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c start a family war, the HTC One interferes

by 121 comments

The Apple iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are now official, which makes this the first occasion when we get two iPhones at ones. It was only logical then that we’ll pit them against each other and see who’s who in the new family. The HTC One is also here – firstly, because it couldn’t make it to our other specs shootout, and secondly, because we need a handset to put the two new Apple smartphones in perspective.

This HTC One and the iPhone 5s share a premium aluminum build, but that is where their similarities mostly end. Apple has refused to take the big screen approach with the iPhone 5s, but that’s not really the point of the ‘s’ in its name, is it? Read more »

Here are the official casses for the Apple iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s

by 31 comments

Apple has designed its own cases to sell with the upcoming iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. The iPhone 5c cases are made of silicon and come in six colors – white, red, yellow, green, blue and black.

The iPhone 5c cases surely look unorthodox, though we are not sure those holes at the back will appeal to everyone. As a matter of fact, we believe they only go well with Crocs and we are not sure that’s a compliment, either. Read more »

Apple iPhoto, iMovie and the iWork suite for iOS will be free for “all new iOS 7 devices”. That’s the exact wording Apple used so it’s unclear if existing iDevice users that qualify for an iOS 7 upgrade will be getting the same kind of treatment or if they will still have to pay for those apps.

Once you get a new iOS 7-running iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, the OS will automatically offer you to download those apps. Read more »
