Apple is continuing to aggressively expand across China with several stores, and the latest location is opening up in Chongqing on March 7th. This marks the third store in the region, and this one’s address is 55 Xiejiawan Street in the Jiulongpo District. While the first pair of stores in this region were located on busy streets with magnificent exteriors, this third store is placed inside of the area’s MixC shopping mall, which opened up in fall 2014. Apple executives Tim Cook and Angela Ahrendts frequently note how critical China is to Apple’s success, and the pair have said that dozens of stores are opening in China over the next couple of years. Over the past year, China has become the vast majority of where Apple’s revenue is sourced from across the globe. (Via @iFostore)

Apple’s new ad campaign might be its best yet, especially if you’re one of the iPhone owners that’s about to have your photo on a billboard. Simply called “Shot on iPhone,” it’s hard to call Apple’s campaign an ad atmf.gif

Next-Generation iPhones Said to Feature Force Touch, Lack...

Yesterday, 11:11 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
sensitive_large.jpgThe so-called "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6s Plus" will reportedly adopt Force Touch, a feature that debuted on the Apple Watch in September, according to sources for AppleInsider. The next-generation iPhones are expected to retain the same physical design as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, including 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models. The report adds that the return of a 4-inch model appears unlikely for this refresh.

Force Touch uses tiny electrodes to distinguish between a light tap or deep press on the screen, prompting the software to perform a different action depending on how much pressure is exerted on the display. Apple would likely have to use a flexible OLED display on a future iPhone model in order for Force Touch to be possible on the smartphone. Apple calls Force Touch its most significant new sensing capability since Multi-Touch on its Apple Watch microsite.

"In addition to recognizing touch, Apple Watch senses force, adding a new dimension to the user interface. Force Touch uses tiny electrodes around the flexible Retina display to distinguish between a light tap and a deep press, and trigger instant access to a range of contextually specific controls — such as an action menu in Messages, or a mode that allows you to select different watch faces — whenever you want. It’s the most significant new sensing capability since Multi‑Touch."

Apple reportedly experimented with adding Force Touch to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last year, although calibration issues resulted in removal of the feature prior to the smartphones being released. The issues appear to have been resolved at this point, however, and Force Touch is now on Apple's upcoming roadmap. The so-called "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6s Plus" will presumably be announced next September.

The report also dismisses the rumor about next-generation iPhones gaining a DSLR-like dual-lens camera system, as implementing this feature would require redesigning the iPhone and moving away from the current chassis found on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Last month, it was reported that the iPhone 6s will retain an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera sensor, although that does not limit other improvements from being made.

It was also rumored in January that the iPhone 6s will gain Force Touch.mf.gif

SanDisk’s new iXpand flash drive w/ Lightning connector n...

Yesterday, 09:07 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

sandisk-ixpand-01.png?w=704&h=335

In addition to announcing its first-ever thumb drive with an integrated USB Type-C connector, SanDisk is also introducing a new higher-capacity version of its recently released iXpand flash drive for iPhone and iPad.

Featuring an integrated Lightning connector and companion app for iPhone and iPad, the new 128GB capacity adds to the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB options already available.

The SanDisk iXpand also comes with a companion app available on the App Store that allows for management of files, as well as streaming and viewing files on an iOS device from the connected drive:

It launches when the iXpand Flash Drive is plugged into an iPhone or iPad and can be configured to automatically sync photos and videos from the camera roll to the drive. In addition, users can store their favorite movies on the iXpand Flash Drive and instantly play them directly from the drive on their iPhone or iPad. Most popular movie formats [including] non-native and PC-friendly ones, like AVI & WMV, are supported — saving time, effort and complexity of converting video formats.

iXpand starts at $60 and the new 128GB model will sell for $149.99. It’s available on the company’s website now, and later through retailers. The lower capacity models are currently available on Amazon.

SanDisk announces first thumb drive w/ USB Type-C connect...

Yesterday, 08:46 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

sandisk-usb-type-c-drive.png?w=704&h=479

SanDisk today announced a new thumb drive that is one of the first to include an integrated USB Type C connector, the next-generation USB plug that’s expected to arrive as one of the only connectors on an upcoming MacBook laptop.

img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a

SanDisk is releasing the device in anticipation of not only the upcoming 12-inch MacBook we’ve detailed extensively, but also a slew of smartphones and tablets that will adopt the new USB standard. The slimmer, reversible USB Type C design for the first time offers a solution slim and powerful enough to work for both mobile devices and PCs. A full-sized USB plug is on its other side.

For now, an Android companion app is available, but you can expect Mac support will likely arrive shortly after the new MacBook.

SanDisk’s Dual USB Drive with Type C Connector will be available with 32GB of storage when it becomes available sometime in Q2.

Yesterday, 07:39 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Apple has refreshed its homepage to showcase a gallery of photos taken with iPhone 6 across the world, unsurprisingly coinciding with today's announcements of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The gallery shows photos taken by iPhone 6 users in several countries, including the United States, Canada, Japan, Iceland, South Korea, China, Scotland, Indonesia, Thailand and New Zealand.

Apple-World-Gallery-800x434.png
Some of the photos have been filtered, enhanced or shared with apps such as Instagram, Snapseed, VSCO Cam, Mextures, Filterstorm Neue, Camera+ and Adobe Photoshop Express. "People take incredible photos and videos on iPhone 6 every day," writes Apple. "And here are some of our favorites. Explore the gallery, learn a few tips, and see what’s possible with the world’s most popular camera."mf.gif

<p>Apple has taken over the front of its homepage to highlight a new section on its website rounding up <a href="http://www.apple.com...allery/">photostaken around the world</a> by the iPhone 6/6 Plus’s camera. The website highlights several photographs taken across the globe, from places like Halong Bay (Vietnam), Pamplona (Spain), and The Cairngorms (Scotland). Alongside each piece of media, Apple includes a brief blurb describing the photo as well as the name of the application in which the photo or video was taken. Most of the photos were taken in the iPhone’s bundled Camera application, but the website notes some edits made in Instagram, Snapped, and Adobe Photoshop Express. The entire gallery is well worth a <a href="http://www.apple.com/iphone/world-gallery/">visit</a>. Apple has also <a href="http://appstore.com/shotoniphone6">published a new page in the App Store</a> to highlight photography apps. Of course, this new iPhone 6 promotion has <em>coincidentally</em> <a href="http://9to5google.com/2015/03/01/galaxy-s6-specs-availability/">launched on the same day</a> as the Galaxy S6.</p>

Samsung and HTC unveil 2015 flagships, events ripe with A...

Yesterday, 06:57 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
From 9to5Google
htc-one-m9.png?w=704&h=391
As Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona, Samsung and HTC have both unveiled their respective 2015 flagship devices. First off, HTC this morning unveiled the One M9. The device features a Snapdragon 810 processor under-the-hood with a 2,840mAh battery to go with it. HTC infamously ditched Megapixels with its One M8 flagship, but this time around, the company is touting that the One M9 feature a 20MP rear-facing shooter with a f/2.2, 27.8mm sapphire lens and 4k video recording.
Visually, the One M9 looks almost identical to its predecessor…

http://rss.buysellad...982&c=395135215
Samsung today unveiled two new flagships, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge.The devices are both powered by a 64-bit octa-core Exynos processor built off a 14nm process. The processor is coupled with 3GM and a 2550mAh battery (increases to 2600 on the S6 edge). The device will be available in either 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants. Samsung has ditched the microSD card slot and removable battery as well, in favor of a sleeker design. The design, instead of plastic, is now a combination of metal frames and an all-glass back. (Sounds familiar, right?)

Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge feature an all-new 16MP camera with optical image stabilization and new IR white balance. Samsung touts that you’ll be able to launch the camera in less than a second with only two press of the home button. Both phones also feature a 5.1-inch 2560×1440 display. There’s also a new finger print scanner within the home button that requires just a slight tap for activation, similar to TouchID on the iPhone.screen-shot-2015-03-01-at-17-57-52.png?wscreen-shot-2015-03-01-at-18-03-22.png?w
Samsung’s event was ripe with sharp comparisons between its latest devices and the iPhone 6. Samsung, when talking about the new design of the Galaxy S6 took a stab at the iPhone 6 Plus and promised that its new devices would not bend.

"My first language might not be engineering but this [1.5x strong metal Galaxy S6] will not bend" http://t.co/zljLCQW08N
&mdash; 9to5Google (@9to5Google) March 1, 2015

Then while talking about battery life, Samsung presented a side by side chart of how long it takes the iPhone 6 to charge compared to the Galaxy S6. Samsung promises that its device is the “fastest charging phone” on the market, going from 0 to 100 percent in half the time of the iPhone 6.
Samsung also compared the lowlight performance of the Galaxy S6 vs the iPhone 6 in another side-by-side image. Finally, Samsung also touted that its new Samsung Pay mobile payment solution is available in 30 million merchant locations, while Apple Pay is available in 200,000.

Samsung Announces Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Pay

Yesterday, 06:54 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Samsung at Mobile World Congress on Sunday announced its latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, each compatible with a new mobile payments service called Samsung Pay. The smartphones are a significant refresh to the Galaxy lineup, featuring a slimmer and lighter metal and glass curved design, all-new front and rear cameras, improved hardware specifications under the hood and more.

Samsung-Galaxy-S6-and-S6-Edge.pngSamsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge (via The Verge)
The Galaxy S6 Edge is notable in that it is the first smartphone to feature a curved display on both sides of the device, constructed from Gorilla Glass 4. Both smartphones have 16-megapixel rear-facing cameras and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras with f/1.9 lenses for improved low-light photos, Auto HDR, optical image stabilization, IR white balance and a "Quick Launch" feature for accessing the camera from any screen in less than one second.

Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have improved hardware specifications in most areas, each featuring a 5.1-inch 2560×1440 Super AMOLED display at 577 ppi, Exynos 8-core processor, 3GB of RAM up, 32GB to 128GB of internal storage, Category 6 LTE, 802.11/a/c Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE, NFC and 2,550 mAh and 2,600 mAh batteries respectively. The devices will run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

Notably absent from the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is a MicroSD slot for expandable storage, waterproofing and a removable battery, three features that Samsung often promoted over the iPhone in the past. The smartphones do gain a feature that the iPhone does not have in wireless charging with support for WPC and PMA standards, allowing you to charge the device at Starbucks or using Qi-enabled chargers.

Samsung introduced a new fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, to be used for Samsung Pay, that functions like Touch ID on iPhone by no longer requiring swiping. Samsung Pay will be available this summer and rival Apple Pay with NFC and magnetic secure transmission (MST) technologies that make the service compatible with both NFC-enabled payment terminals and older magnetic swipe readers.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will be available April 10 across several countries worldwide in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, and Gold Platinum color options. A special Blue Topaz edition will be exclusive to the Galaxy S6. The smartphones will be available on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile in the U.S., and will also be on sale through Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Target, Walmart and Sam's Club.mf.gif
