What to expect from Tuesday’s iPhone event [VID]

When it comes to Apple events there’s always one rule of thumb: Don’t go expecting that every single rumor you’ve heard this year is going to come to pass. There probably won’t be any new iPads, or a larger iPhone, or an iWatch. What we should be expecting is an iPhone 5S and an iPhone 5C. The former is an almost identical upgrade of the iPhone 5. It’ll…

App Watch: Instagram getting ads, Xbox Music released, Marvel’s Jarvis and Kindle iOS 7 update

Every now and then you get a day whereby tons of notable apps either get updated or get announced by a major company. Today is one of those days. Kindle iOS App “required update” for iOS 7 users Amazon released a minor update to its iOS ebook reading app. I say minor because no new major features were announced. But, if you’re going to be updating…

Hilarious iPhone 5S, ‘S is for Same’ parody promo [video]

As Apple fans, we’ve become accustomed to the company’s simple and understated promo videos used to show off all the best and innovative features behind its devices. It’s become such an iconic trait of the company that it leaves itself easily targeted by creative YouTubers. Some are good, others not so good. This one, published on YouTube by Matthias is one…

Alleged blue iPhone 5C powered on and used in leaked video

For the second time in the space of a couple of weeks a video has shown up on Chinese social video sharing site, Youko, claiming to show an iPhone 5C actually being used. The first time out, it was the red model, but the video was of such poor quality that many claimed it was a fake and could easily have been an iPhone 5 or iPod touch in a red bumper….

Gold iPhone 5S parody TV ad pretty much sums up my feelings… [video]

As soon as I heard the gold iPhone 5S rumors, I knew exactly who the ‘target market’ was and the kind of people I’d expect to buy one. Those strong stereotypical judgements faded a little as the gold revealed itself as a lighter, champagne color. Still, I found the video below utterly hilarious. I don’t think I need to say anymore. I think my…

Graphite iPhone 5S shows up in another video, still not convinced

I think the Graphite and Black iPhone 5S is going to be one of those products I won’t believe exists until Apple unveils it. In fact, I’m much more convinced of the gold iPhone’s existence than the graphite one. Still, another YouTube video’s been published showing the grey and black device compared to the current iPhone 5 with a slate back. The main…

iMovie for iPhone updated with compatibility for….iPhone 6 and iPhone 7? [UPDATE: Back to iPhone 5]

  If you head on over to the iTunes page for iMovie for iPhone (and others, according to The Verge), you’ll notice that down in the compatibility, it doesn’t have the usual “optimized for iPhone 5″ in the bottom. In fact, it says iPhone 6. That’s interesting, seeing as the two devices we are expecting to come on Tuesday are the iPhone 5S and iPhone…
