New Exciting Changes at iPhone Life!


Dear friends,

Big changes are happening at Mango Life Media, and we couldn’t be more excited.

How to Produce and Sell a TV Show Shot Entirely With an iPhone (Interview with Kristian Day)


There's really no limit to what you can do with your iPhone. In this interview, I get the opportunity to talk to Kristian Day, a filmmaker from Iowa who managed to shoot an entire TV show with his iPhone, and sell it to a local network. He talks about how he got started, the best apps for filming, and overcoming rejection. Check it out below!

Can You Learn to Develop iOS Apps in Only 8 Weeks? (Interview with Mobile Makers Academy)


What if I told you that you could learn to develop iOS apps in less than eight weeks, with no previous experience in coding? You would probably think I was either crazy or incredibly optimistic. The founders of Mobile Makers Academy have created a full-immersion iOS-bootcamp where they promise to take you from novice to entry-level iOS developer in only eight weeks. The cost of the program is about $9,000, which is a good deal considering you'll essentially be ready to get hired in a new hot field. Mobile Makers Academy also offers some limited scholarships that are worth checking out. I got a chance to interview the founder of Mobile Makers Academy, and I asked them about their background, how long they've been at it, and what kinds of job offers people are getting after going through their program.

TYPO Keyboard CEO Talks About BlackBerry Lawsuit Threats, Working With Ryan Seacrest, and More [Exclusive Interview]


I don't know about you, but if BlackBerry tried to sue me, I wouldn't remain as calm and collected as Laurence Hallier. I got the chance to chat with the veteran entrepreneur, who is currently the CEO of TYPO Keyboards, and I asked him about their new TYPO keyboard case (which many critics say looks like a BlackBerry keyboard—inlcuding BlackBerry itself), what it was like working with Ryan Seacrest, how he feels about BlackBerry, and what's next for this young product venture. Enjoy!


iPhone Life magazine's Best of CES Award Winners!


The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the largest tech shows in the world, and it serves as a yearly marketplace for future and innovative technology. The iPhone Life team scoured the show floor—all two million square feet of it—for genius iOS-related gadgets, some of which are already out, and some that will be released later this year.

What I Secretly Hope Apple Announces on Tuesday


Last week, Apple sent out invitations for their October 22nd event in San Francisco (For full coverage of the event, visit iPhoneLife.com on Tuesday). If you’ve been following Apple for a while, you know the drill. They’ll announce an update to their current product lines, maybe surprise us with a new gadget, and start shipping them out to the public within a couple of weeks.

Apple announcements are surrounded by an anticipation and hype that seldom lives up to expectations. Even though Apple’s latest products (the iPhone 5s and 5c) continue to be well received, the last few product announcements have seemed particularly lackluster. Where is the showmanship? Where’s the awe and wonder? Tim Cook’s mild-mannered style works well for managing a complex web of international supply lines, but it doesn’t exactly pop on stage. So in addition to the rumored new iPads, here’s what I’m secretly hoping will happen on Tuesday when when Tim Cook and company take the stage.

The New iPhone 5S and 5C: 4 Reactions


Apple, oh Apple. How you tease me so. Apple just finished announcing their new iPhone lineup, which consists of the iPhone 5S and a colorful new roster of iPhone 5Cs. As Editor of iPhone Life magazine, it’s hard to be impartial about their new products. However, there was something about this event that subtly missed the mark for me, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Here are four thoughts and questions that came to mind.

Tuesday's Apple Event: Complete Rumor Roundup + What NOT to Expect


It’s that time of the year, and we couldn’t be more excited! Tomorrow a10 a.m. Pacific timeApple will host a special event at its Cupertino campus, where it is widely expected the tech giant will announce a new version of the iPhone. In addition to complete coverage through iPhonelife.com and iPhone Life magazine, we’ll be live Tweeting the event and commenting live as all the new products are announced.

Hello there friend,

Have you ever wondered what wizardry creates the words you see on our print magazine issue after issue? It turns out there’s a bunch of humans back here, and they’re all just like you (well, not exactly like you, but eerily similar).
