Unlike some past product campaigns, Apple went with an A-List of celebrities to promote their newest iPhone 6S. The addition of well-known public figures like Jamie Foxx, Selena Gomez and Bill Hader helps with the product’s relevancy. This newest advert shows NBA star Stephen Curry, fresh off a championship campaign, doing some interesting bits and tricks with an Apple iPhone. The short video has the Golden State’s favorite player hitting a half court shot, confidently turning his back against the basket as the ball heads in the net and walking towards the camera with swag pouring from every step he takes.

Even though their iCloud service has experienced growing pains, the need for additional space to provide safe storage for millions of their users is growing by the day. Everybody wishes to have their photos, videos and personal documents, all stored up safely and easily. Thanks to services such as iCloud from Apple, Google Drive, Dropbox, Facebook, Amazon etc. – they are (most of the times) completely available. Currently, the tech giant from Cuppertino is doing a lot of new work to expand their iCloud data centers worldwide. They are rapidly building several new clusters of buildings for its data center near Reno, Nevada, but also, the company
In a true “gloves off” scenario, Amazon will ban the sales of Apple TV and Google Chromecast devices in their shop, starting October 29th. This marks another chapter in the ever going battle of streaming services and providers. It seems that the online store giant is taking none of it from Google and Apple as it won’t allow Prime Video on neither the Apple TV and Chromecast devices. Likewise, the app is also not available for the Chromecast. The current generation of Apple TV (not the newly released one) is the 14th best selling device in the entire electronics section of Amazon. Currently is ranks 4th place
If you thought that 10 million Apple iPhone 6 devices sold during last year’s launch weekend was impressive, what will you then think about this year’s numbers. The company just sold a staggering 13 million iPhone 6S devices during the launch weekend, completing the amazing rollout of this device. “Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said. “Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in
Remember the whole ‘Bendgate’ scenario when the Apple iPhone 6 was released? It seems that the companie’s investment into crafting the new model out of sturdy and durable 7000 series aluminum paid off. The new iPhone 6S seems stronger, more resilient to bending and looking like a better made phone overall. The two guys from FoneFox will give you a real-life test of its capabilities and strength now. They’ve recorded a video, where they, employing various techniques and levels of force, try to bend the newest iPhone. In what looks like an impressive amount of force applied to bend the Apple iPhone, it doesn’t really
According to a rumor, Apple’s next processor should bear the name ‘A10’ and it may come with as much as six-cores. It would be manufactured using a 14 nanometer production process and it would be produced by either Samsung in Texas or TMSC in Taiwan. Original rumor mentioned 10nm process node, but that just goes to show that original source should be taken with a kilogram of sea salt on its tail. These two companies would be competing for orders, the Weibo source said. We can get behind the naming, but the rest seems a bit off as Apple is not a company known for doing major internal hardware changes.
According to T-Mobile CEO John Legere, the mobile company has seen an increase of pre-orders in United States for the Apple iPhone 6S. The increase is stated at around 30 percent, compared to those for the last generation iPhone that was released last year. The claim was made by Legere himself, when he announced a special trade-in plan for people who want an iPhone 6S and already own the previous-generation phones. This enables users to obtain the new iPhone 6S through a lease for just $5 per month or, if they own an iPhone 5S, do the same, and pay $10 per month. That was
It seems that Pope Francis will impact more than only the people who come to see him during his visit to United States. According to The Verge, some customers of the Apple iPhone 6S have been warned by the company that they may experience delays in the delivery of their smartphones. Here is the full letter released: Dear XXXX, Thank you for your recent Apple Store purchase. Your iPhone 6s 64GB Rose Gold is scheduled for delivery on Friday, September 25th.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday – citing individuals closely familiar with the project – that the upcoming Apple Car won’t have a self driving mode available. Even though the autonomous vehicle/model is still in the company’s long term plans, the first version of the automobile will have to have a human behind the wheel. According to the same report, Apple now employs around 600 people on this project. Trusting the same sources, it is believed that the Apple bosses gave the go ahead to triple that amount. This would add to 1,800 workers, dedicated in producing an Apple Car in the next few years. This
After their launch event, Apple finally revealed availability and pricing for the all-new Apple iPhone 6S. While the device itself doesn’t bring a lot of new stuff, it clearly has a tight grip set on the mobile market. You do get the ‘optimized’ iOS9 upgrade (planned obsolescence), some minor styling changes and a more scratch resistant glass, improved aluminum case, changes to the front / rear camera and the way things are done on the phone. But for me as an example, this changes don’t do much to justify switching from the old to the new. The introduction of the 64-bit A9 chip will increase performance, but it is
According to Apple Insider, the Johns Hopkins’ ResearchKit study will utilize the health capabilities of Apple Watch for their upcoming pilepsy study with emphasis on seizure prediction.

In a nutshell, the Johns Hopkins University entered in a partnership with developer Thread Research, where they will harness Apple Watch and iPhone sensors to power an ambitious ResearchKit study on
Couple of years ago, the world of mobile apps was shocked with the appearance of World Lens app, which detected words on live cameras. Even though the mobile phones at the time had quite limited camera capabilities, what World Lens showed to us was the future of translation. Naturally, revolutionary apps like that do not just disappear as Google proved by acquiring the app maker, Quest Visual. Given that World Lens for Google Glass was one of most impressive things I’ve personally used on Google’s first attempt at Augmented Reality, as you can see on video below: Now, over a year passed since the acquisition of

According to Apple Insider, it seems that Tim Cook denied any rumors that Watch sales have collapsed recently. The information was revealed towards the end of Apple’s quarterly conference call for the third quarter of 2015. In this event, Tim Cook seemed eager to avoid any questions in regards to Apple Watch sales and deliveries, thus further fueling debate on the market success for their latest gadget overall. He also revealed Apple Watch sales in June were higher than April or May, an impressive statistic considering overwhelming launch day demand. On the other hand, Apple decided to include Apple Watch among ‘Other’ products in their
The four ads, titled Beijing, Berlin, Closer and Goals, all have one thing in common – they showcase how an Apple Watch will help transform your daily lives. From getting directions to making sure where and what to see in different towns and cities, to other potentially interesting social interaction related possibilities. Even the tech savvy individuals will be impressed, specially with some health oriented aspects. While some have spurned these ads, titling them not to Apple’s standards, we find them interesting. They promote the options of the product rather well, putting things you can do with it in perspective. This might be a reaction
