I really enjoy the iPhone, the first I got was the 4S and it was superior than any other smartphone at that time. Then I got the 5S which was really nice although I could benefit of a bigger screen. Today I have the iPhone 6 with exactly the screen I wanted.
My personal opinion on the iPhone 6, is that it looks great and in general it works pretty well too, with the recent release of iOS 8.3 Apple have seemed to address several stability problems, but there is one issue that nobody talks about, and I honestly don’t know why.
With my iPhone 5S I was using different type of headphones, some are very cheap, some where not so cheap. Because I tend to loose headphones often, I usually have several pairs around different parts of the house or jackets/backpack.
When Apple announces something, all of us who love technology really take it seriously and we are very anxious about the announcements, about how a company like Apple will shake the market with some innovative product, or how we will start drooling about getting that marvelous product they are about to make public.
Since the death of Steve Jobs a lot of people think or thought that Tim Cook was not good enough for the role, and that Apple would not be able to innovate anymore. I think they are wrong, I think that although they are different persons, Apple has an amazing team of people that will continue to make great products to enrich people’s lives (as Tim Cook would say it).
But when a company like Apple (the company with the highest value in the world), decides to live stream an event like the one of the last 9th of September 2014, they need to make sure they have their things in order to be able to fulfill the millions of requests they know they will get on such a date. (more…)
I wanted to wait some days before actually writing something about what Apple has announced, I think letting some water flow under the bridge before writing brings a little bit of more objectivity, and I hope thats the case of this post.
As you may have heard, Apple announced several things on their September 9th 2014 event in California:
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Two new versions of the iPhones, one with a 4,7″ screen and another with a 5.5″screen called “Plus”. Both models bring the new A8 processor, more screen resolution, improved camera and they come in 16, 64 and 128 GB. Yes they don’t offer anymore the 32GB version which was an odd choice, I would have expected them not to offer the 16GB model, but thats the way it is. Both models finally offer NFC that (for now) will only work with Apple Pay, something I will talk about below.
The main difference between the two models (besides the obvious bigger screen) is that the Plus version offers optical image stabilization for the camera, something that will improve your shots when your hand shakes a bit!.
Since the first launch of the iPhone in June 29th 2007, we cant hesitate when we say that Apple revolutionized the whole mobile phones market. The new device was just so damn good!
Since then 5 evolving versions of the iPhone got into the market each of them with an incredible succesfull rate.
Last year on October 4th 2011, the world of technology enthusiasts and Apple fans were just waiting for the announcement of the iPhone 5 and instead of that, the released version was the iPhone 4S, this didnt fit very well to the Apple fans at first, but the iPhone 4S added a significantly important main improvement, the camera. The new point and shoot device embeeded on the latest mobile from Apple was indeed very good, and the all in all experience of the phone with the latest iOS version was working as a charm. The sales of the iPhone 4S on the second quarter of 2012 were 26 million (a bit less of what they expected to sell) but still an incredible number.
