The iPhone 6: How is it made?

Have you ever wondered why every product you own (Well, a vast majority anyway) is Made in China? Why not Europe, or the US? Well, it turns out, it’s not because of the Cost persay, but also because of the scalability of operations. Setting up an assembly line in the US could take upto 9 months, when the same can be had in China in a mere two weeks! Now, we come to the iPhone. Apple has a worldwide process for manufacturing the iPhone, which ranges from being Designed in California to Assembled in China, with parts sourced along the way. Sources say the iPhone would cost just $4 more if it were manufactured in the United States, so why does Apple choose China? The following Demographic (Used with permission from CompareCamp) will...

iPhone 5S and 5C Update

iPhone 5S and 5C Update

    Are you dying to get your hands and that oh-so-spectacular gold iPhone 5s, but there are just none available. Don’t fear, because Apple is shipping the new iPhone 5s (in all colors and carriers) sooner than we thought. Shipments will take about 2-3 weeks to arrive to your doorstep, and when they do in November, you will finally have your new beloved iPhone. If you can wait the few weeks, buying from Apple’s online store directly might not be a bad idea. On the other hand, the iPhone 5c, Apple’s cheaper iPhone that replaced last year’s flagship, is not doing so well. In fact production might be cut by as much as 50%. Throughout the world, sales for the plastic iPhone are not what analysts expected. Apple might even start cutting the price on the 5c.   Mikyle Hassanali is an Android fanboy from New York.

Apple’s A7 Chip Is Made by Samsung

If you didn’t know yet, the latest A7 processor on the iPhone 5S is currently one of the most powerful processors in the market right now alongside the Snapdragon 800 from Qualcomm. An inspection has been made by Chipworks which shows that the A7 chip is built by none other than Samsung while the secondary chip “M7 CoProcessor” is built by NXP Semiconductors, a Netherlands-based company. While Apple is slowly moving away from Samsung to be the company’s supplier for some of the parts well it seems like we won’t see them completely stop from ordering parts for another 2 years or so.

iPhone 5S and 5C are Official – Here’s What You Need To Know

The new iPhones : A Comparison.   iPhone 5S: Performance Unleashed? The iPhone, up to this point, has been a one size fits all phone. The Cupertino company today unveiled two iPhone, and thus, for the first time, we have two models of iPhones. Beyond pricing, these two devices are separated by vastly different features, considering your desires for gaming, photography, security, style, and yes, budget. Lets take a look at the iPhone 5S first. Being the big brother, it certainly has all the more features than its budget sibling. Sporting the new 64-Bit A7 processor, it promises twice the computing and graphics performance as compared to the iPhone 5C. Naturally, the A7 makes the 5S a better fit for gamers, and in a way, for photographers. With the new chip, you can now shoot 720P video at 120FPS! Digital Image Stabilization is also present now, so you can shoot that candlelight picture. As far as low light photography goes, the iPhone 5s captures more light in more than one way. First, It has a new lens setup with a wider f/2.2 aperture, along with an imaging sensor that is 15% larger. And for times when this just won’t cut it, it has a Dual LED flash True Tone which promises better color balance and natural skin tones. Regardless of how old you are, you probably have some private stuff that you want to keep to yourself. A security code is a relatively effective method, but the 5S offers a more secure, and convenient fingerprint sensor of course, Apple has a fancy term for it, and it is called the Touch ID, which integrates the sensor into the home button. This somehow reminds me of Android’s Face Unlock. It was fun for a couple of days, but then it got gimmicky and was a hassle. Needless to say, the 5S is the more refines and Professional of the two phones. It features an aluminum enclosure that is available in 3 finishes: Gold, Silver and Space Gray. Beyond that, It is the only one to offer 64GB of storage, and is well-suited for Globe trotters. Pricing US: $199 (16GB), $299 (32GB), $399 (64GB) on-contract; $649 (16GB) $749 (32GB), $849 (64GB) unlocked iPhone 5C: The colorful Companion Think of the iPhone 5C as a colorful, plasticky reincarnation of the iPhone 5. It features many of the same specs as before, but it’s available in five Colors: Blue, Green, White, Red and Yellow. Naturally, given the steel-reinforced, poly-carbonate construction, this would be a suitable choice if you are prone to accidents. The iPhone 5 was a world class smartphone, and the iPhone 5C carries on the tradition with the same excellent processor, camera and display. It offers some Subtle Improvements, such as a new Facetime camera which performs better in low light. In the Sprint Model, it supports a wide array of LTE bands. That said, if you play music with your phone speakers, be sure to compare the two at the local Apple store. With a smaller speaker grill, this may not sound as good as its older brother. Whether you feel the more expensive 5S is worth the cost is a personal Decision. Yes, Apple’s premiere phone promises faster performance and better imaging, but if you use a phone as a...

Will Apple show new iPhone at September 10th event?

Will Apple show new iPhone at September 10th event?

Is Apple planning to announce new iPhone?  In a post by AllThingsD, they stated that Apple is planning a special event on September 10th expecting them to announce the new iPhone. Since the announcement of iOS7 an expected event has been anticipated. Although sales on the iPhone 5 have been strong, Apple has seen a decline in sales to users moving to lower cost Android and Windows devices. The prolonged court case with Samsung, and their popular Android handsets has also proven to be a thorn in their side. The announcement would be important in timing due to the hot competition. Apple’s decisions to run similar OS from model to model has made even some of their most loyal fans look toward other products for a change. Some say their answer to mid priced handsets lies in a smaller more mid-range device to attract these buyers. A new version of Mac OS X is expected to launch at the event also. AllThingsD reached out to Apple, but they declined to comment. Hit the source link below for more info! SOURCE: AllThingsD   Hi, my name is Mark and I love to eat, sleep, and breathe tech!

Next Round in the Apple-Samsung War?

Next Round in the Apple-Samsung War?

The battle between the two tech giants, Apple and Samsung, is one known to all. Fresh off the victory that was an import ban on several of the Cupertino giants products for infringing Samsung patents, Apple has some new tricks up its sleeve. Bloomberg reports that Apple is pressuring some US courts, hoping to ban the domestic sale of several of its South Korean rivals products, thus turning the tables on them. We thought apple would be satisfied after President Obama vetoed the ban on the import of several devices. Boy, were we wrong. It seems both companies won’t be satisfied until one beats the other into submission, but for now apple has the upper hand.  At the time, it seemed like apple was just trying to level the playing field, but now it seems like it was trying to undercut Samsung. Samsung is yet to appeal Obama’s veto, while Apples request to ban the South Korean companies imports will be decided by a US trade agency in the near future.
