I hate to say I told you so, but in the wake of Tuesday's relatively unimpressive media event I don't know what else to say. Perhaps the bigwigs at Apple should spend more time reading iPhone Life; we seem to have some really spot on ideas of how they might recapture some of their magic. When our Editor in Chief, Alex Cequea, posts something like this kind yet critical analysis of what Apple could have done better, that's another sure sign Apple loyalists are unhappy with the direction the company is headed.
If you're curious about the capabilities of the A7 64-bit mobile chip in the new iPhone 5S, wonder no more. The folks from ChAIR were good enough to be there once again to help Apple show off the incredible gaming capabilities of the new iPhone 5S.
Featuring an advanced chip set designed by Apple that further blurs the line between console and mobile gaming, the iPhone 5S is set to once again redefine our understanding of what mobile gaming can be. Infinty Blade III presents an amazing example of what phenomenal gaming devices this new crop of 64-bit iDevices will bring.
Technological progress is rarely as dramatic or as disruptive as the introduction of the original iPhone in 2007. But thanks to Apple's past successes and the fierce competition Apple faces in the smartphone market, everyone has been hoping for something just as revolutionary today.
One of our editors here at iPhone Life recently asked me which pair of headphones I would vote for as best headphone of the year. Without hesitation I replied that in my opinion Phiaton’s Bridge MS 500 ($269.00) deserved that honor. These uniquely crafted headphones take precision sound sculpting to a whole new level. And when I use the word sculpting, that is exactly what these superior headphones do. Like a master sculptor, the Bridge MS 500s take the acoustics of whatever you're listening to and mold and funnel the sounds to get the maximum dynamic range out of each and every note.

Sept. 10 promises to be a very interesting day for those of us who love our Apple products, as well as for the company itself. Lately, consumer confidence in the innovative tech company has been fluctuating, and despite record-setting sales of its iDevices, Apple is still being lambasted for an apparent lack of innovation and an inability to keep up with the changing times in the smartphone market that it revolutionized. All eyes are on Apple, with both consumer and investor confidence hanging in the balance.

Wow! That's the word that first comes to mind when trying to describe just how amazing 50 Cent's new SMS Audio Street ANC headphones ($279.95) are.
50 Cent is know for his hardcore gangsta rap and controversial lyrics, as well as some seriously heavy bass lines. Discovered and managed by none other than Eminem himself, 50 Cent has gone on to transcend his rap star status and become a successful actor and businessman as well.
I got a chance to chat with 50 Cent at this year’s CES in Vegas. He was in town promoting his new line of headphones. We didn't get around to talking much about his headphones (it was Vegas after all), but I enjoyed our one on one a great deal, and he did offer to sign an autographed copy of iPhone Life magazine for me. It was only later that I came to realize what an amazing pair of headphones 50 had attached his name to. Look out, Beats by Dre ($299.95), there's a new contender on the block!
The Joy Factory's aXtion Go ($49.95) is the best deal on an IPX5 rated, military-standard iPhone case market I'm currently aware of. Not only will it provide an exceptional level of protection from drops, liquids, dirt, and compression, the aXtion Go just looks super awesome! It sports one of the slickest designs I've seen in a waterproof iPhone case. Its back consists of a series of highly shock absorbing, diamond-shaped, air-filled cushions, which resemble fancy, geometric bubble wrap. It looks cool and feels even cooler. I found myself continually kneading the diamond bubbles on the back, mesmerized by their soft yet firm squishiness.
One of the newest rugged cases for the iPhone 5 is from a company that's been in the business of designing heavy-duty, impregnable protective gear for more than 40 years. And yet, the Pelican ProGear Vault ($79.95) is Pelican’s first foray into the increasingly competitive field of full-time use, rugged iPhone cases. And with the new ProGear Vault, Pelican certainly is making quite a splash.
Pelican is certainly no stranger to designing heavy-duty, rugged protective gear. The company has made a name for itself fabricating some of the toughest cases, designing them to withstand extreme degrees of abuse and hardship. Now with its new Vault case for the iPhone 5, the company has brought its exacting standards of quality and near impervious, rugged durability to the iPhone case market.
