Latest iPhone 6 Rumors: Protruding Camera Lens, iPad-mini-like Styling, More....

image

In addition to the rumor last week that the much-anticipated iPhone 6 will be announced September 9, a number of additional details surfaced, nicely summarized by Jonny Evans on the Computerworld website. Macworld UK reported that the new phone will look more like a small version of the iPad mini than the iPhone 5s, with an edge-to-edge display and



Apple News: Mark your Calendar for the iPhone 6 Announcement

It's almost official. Apple is expected to send out their "save the date" notices, and that date is September 9. The date is almost exactly a year after the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were announced, on September 10, 2013. Last year, online orders began September 13 with availability on the 20.  In the case of the gold version of the iPhone 5s, availability was extremely limited. 



All you need is Love (For Your Apple Device)

Apple recently released a commercial (they call it a "film") called "Stickers" that show how MacBook owners love their laptops. They demonstrate this by the stickers that adorn the back of the LCD screen on their MacBooks. You've probably seen them before, with the numerous creative ways the Apple logo is incorporated into the design.



New "Dreams" Ad Shows Multiple Uses of iPhone

Apple is continuing its "Powerful" campaign with a new "Dreams" ad showing many different uses of an iPhone, from monitoring weather and taking emergency calls to making jewelry, translating language, and painting a mural. It's similar to iPad ads in the past, but this time with music in the background instead of poetry, featuring "When I Grow Up” by Jennifer O’Connor.



Could Apple Announce an iPhone Air and an iPhone Pro?

All signs point to a 4.7-inch iPhone shipping soon, followed by a 5.5-inch iPhone a few months later. This would be the first time Apple announced two different iPhones in the same year, as long as you don't count the iPhone 5c, which was basically a cost-reduced, repackaged version of the iPhone 5. The features of the iPhone 5c weren't new, whereas these new iPhones will certainly offer larger screens and perhaps more features like a faster processor, a better camera, and longer battery life.



Piel Frama's FramaSlim Lives Up to Its Name

image

Piel Frama makes nice, quality leather cases for iPhones and other gadgets. But I didn't think they could make a case as slim as the FramaSlim. There has to be a trick, and indeed there is. Instead of a plastic insert or more leather to enclose the iPhone, they use a micro-suction material to attach the iPhone to the stiff leather case. There is a flap that covers the screen, but still, the case is remarkably thin. That flap closes shut thanks to built-in magnets, which is a nice touch.

Pelican has long been considered a pioneer in the design and manufacture of high quality, rugged gear that's designed to last and withstand significant abuse. Their new ruggedized iPhone 5/5s cases continue in this great tradition. With its minimalistic yet highly protective design, the Pelican Voyager ($50) is the latest heavy-duty iPhone case offering from one of the leaders in reliably protective cases. This well-designed case not only meets the demanding Military Standards of device defense, it actually outshines the competition in one critical area.



Apple Reportedly Plans to Sell Phones for Carrier Plans with Early Upgrade Cycle

image

Buying a new iPhone is great, but two years later you're wanting a new one and can't wait until your contract ends. Several carriers are now accommodating the desire of fanboys to constantly be upgrading to the latest and greatest by offering plans with early upgrade cycles. And the big news is that Apple is reported to begin selling phones for these plans as part of a pilot program in Apple Stores later this month. 



Rumors: iPhone 6 Announcement Sept 16, iWatch in December

It's quite possible that Apple itself doesn't yet know when the iPhone 6 will be announced, since there are so many factors involved in ramping up production for the huge number of devices that Apple sells. 



Back to School: Gear Up with Pelican's Rugged S105 Backpack. [Review]

With school about to be back in session, I've been keeping my eye open for great last-minute gear for the returning student. If you (or someone you know) are the type of student who tends to be rough on things, or a student who just needs something durable and reliable that can stand up to the general abuse and heavy lifting that the school year can bring, then the Pelican S105 might be just what you're looking for.
