If you are a loyal Apple fanatic and wonder why Apple TV does not have support for 4K resolution or High Dynamic Range (HDR) contents to compliment your high-tech 4K/UHD flat screen TV, well, wonder no more because, the Cupertino tech giant has updated its Apple TV with support for both 4K and HDR contents. Aptly called Apple TV 4K, this little black box, which looks pretty much like its previous version, promised to deliver “unbelievable sharp, crisp images, richer, more true-to-life colors, and far greater detail in both dark and bright scenes.” Continue reading Apple Updates Apple TV With 4K And HDR Support, Announced Apple TV App
Tim Cook kicked off the September 12 Apple event with a touching tribute to Steve Jobs. Aptly, the event was held at a theater named after the late visionary co-founder of Apple. The intro was a break from the tradition where Tim would go on to boast about sale numbers, user-ships and of course, retails. Retails it did touched on, but the product highlights was lead by Apple Watch, which Cook claims overtook Rolex to be “the number one watch in the world.” Continue reading Apple Watch Series 3 Has Built-In Cellular, So You Can Ditch Your Phone
So, this is it. Just hours ago, Apple taken the wrap of the heavily leaked and rumored iPhone anniversary device, iPhone X, along with the iPhone 7 successor, now called iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Yup. iPhone 7s has been skipped. It is now straight to 8. Anyways, we are not here to regurgitate what Tim Cook and his team has spat out in a lengthy keynote and so here’s the gist. iPhone X is expected, beautiful. It features an expansive, edge-to-edge bezel-less display that takes up the entire front. In the process, the physical Home button is gone and so is the fingerprint sensor. In its place is a 7MP sensors loaded front-facing camera that will unlock your device via Face ID. Continue reading iPhone X And iPhone 8: One Excites But The Other Makes Us Go Yawn
Brikk, the purveyor of luxury gadgets, has launched premium version of iPhone X ahead of the device’s official announcement on September 12. The official words from Brikk landed in our inbox a few hours ago, indicating a selection of luxe iPhone X will be available for your taking. We suspect the iPhone X will be rare device by the virtue of the pricing and the rumored manufacturing issues which may limit the quantity available during the first wave of availability. Notwithstanding that, if you are looking to further stand out from the crowd and have a burgeoning bank account, Brikk presents to you iPhone X in Gold and Platinum with Diamonds in multiple collections which also include a Solid Gold Ingot version, as an alternative to the mundane factory version.

September 12 is the date to look out for if you are a fan of iPhone because that is the date earmarked for the big reveal of the next iPhones, including the much anticipated and rumored anniversary edition, the iPhone 8. We are not sure how these sources managed to get hold on these leaks, but if recent history of such leaks have taught us anything, it is that such leaks usually turned out to be pretty spot on. Anywho, with just seven days to the big event, a supposed video of a working iPhone 8 was leaked. Yup. A working iPhone 8 in action. Imagine that! Continue reading Working Apple iPhone 8 Video And Shocking Price List Leaked!
So, when it comes to “leaked” info of Apple’s new smartphone, I guess that company that does the bling to iPhone, Brikk, should know the best. So far, Brikk has not been proven wrong. Following the company’s teasing of the new range of luxe, yet-to-be-announced iPhone 8, Brikk has pushed out an email saying it has “new confirmed updates and photos of iPhone 8 from Apple.” Now, I have not been keeping abreast of the rumors so far, well, at least not as much as I think I should have, but what Brikk has to offer on the email is a tad more than the current rumors floating around. Along with a few images of the supposed leaked iPhone 8, Brikk confirmed the worst fear of some Apple users: Apple is yet again removing something and this time it has ditched the traditional home button which also happens to be the touch ID to make way for a larger screen coverage. Continue reading Apparently, These Are New “Confirmed” Updates And Images Of iPhone 8
We usually don’t post this stuff, but since this is the first, we felt obligated to let you guys on this. Admittedly, I do not know what is there to achieve jailbreaking a limited functionality piece of wearable, but in case you want to do it, you will be glad a solution could be available in near future, well, possibly… At the recent Def Con 25, hacker Max Bazaliy of the Fried Apple has demonstrated a jailbreak on an Apple Watch running on watchOS 3. According to Bazaliy, a jailbroken Apple Watch will let you in on the “sensitive data related to call records, health data, messages, emails, GPS location, Calendar entries, photos and more.” Continue reading Finally, Apple Watch Jailbroken, But The Question Is: Is It Necessary?
The fate of the so-called iPhone 8 remains unclear. So far, what I have read is contradicting to say the least. One source cited possible delay due to material shortage and another said on contrary to rumor, it will be on time. Hell, no one can even confirm if it will be called iPhone 8 at all. For all you know, it could be just iPhone Edition. However, like before, that won’t stop Brikk from ‘introducing’ the luxury version of the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 8. The tip reached our inbox and I thought it will be interesting to share. In total Brikk plans to offer three levels of luxe iPhone 8: Lux iPhone 8, Lux iPhone 8 Standard and Lux iPhone 8 Deluxe. Continue reading Brikk Touts Luxe iPhone 8 Devices Even Before Official Announcement
Apple lost more than a benevolent and visionary leader when Jobs passed on. From Jobs passing up to today, the Cupertino-based tech giant has lost an headphone jack, an SD card slot, a glowing logo and most unfortunately, the iconic MagSafe too. To Apple’s credit, It did gain something though: a pair of wireless earbuds that is nothing short of an oddity. Sorry. Pardon me for less than kind words. I simply can’t stand the sight of two sticks dangling from someone’s ears that aren’t ear rings. Anyways, for those who is still mourning over the death of the legendary MagSafe, a patent filed by Apple may bring some hope for the MagSafe return. Well, kind of. Continue reading Patent Hints Apple Bringing MagSafe To USB-C Connector, Or Is It Really?
Now, we all know how Apple is obsessed with details and that includes obsessing over every elements that goes into its store, and the upcoming flagship store in Chicago is no different. Not only does this store, which is actually a relocation of the original flagship store in Chicago, a showcase of Apple obsession with style and details, it has a little something extra – something which we have never seen and never would have imagined Apple would do so. So what is it that surprise us (or at least me)? The roof. It is in the likeness of a MacBook, complete with the iconic bitten apple branding out there on top, in the open for all on the skyscraper towering around to view. That’s right. This upcoming flagship store in Chicago has a enormous MacBook for the roof. Continue reading Relocated Apple Store In Chicago Has A Giant MacBook On The Roof
