Triple the fun? Apple is planning three iPhones this year

Apple thinks it’s found the recipe for Tim Cook’s happiness, and will release three new iPhones to the world in 2019. This year we’ll likely see another ‘budget’ device like the iPhone XR — something many users were looking forward to in 2018 (especially in the harsh South African economy). Apple will also continue the newly acquired tradition of offering multiple sizes at multiple price poi...[Read More]

Should you move from Android to Apple? Here’s the lowdown

All these new Apples got you thinkin’ about making the big move? The great switcheroo? There’s nothing to be anxious about — Apple Land is nice this time of year. iPhones used to be miles slicker than Androids, but in the last four years many have bridged that gap. However, there are still significant differences between the two platforms. Some you’ll love. Some you probably won’t, coming fr...[Read More]

Apple iPhone XS vs iPhone XS Max vs iPhone XR: Which should you buy?

This year iPhone fans have quite a challenge ahead — which one of the extremely similar iPhones should buyers choose? Apple unveiled three different iPhones a month ago, and all three are compelling in their own right. Granted, all three look about the same at a glance, but it’s the small (and bigger) differences that’ll really determine your choice between the iPhone XS, iPhone ...[Read More]

Apple iPhone XS – The iPhone X, improved

The iPhone XS is perhaps the most conventional phone that Apple is launching this year, a direct follow-up to the iPhone X, last year’s iOS-flavoured chart topper with a wallet busting price and a crop of new features. So why go for the XS this year? The iPhone keeps the same size, basically the same screen, even a lot of the same features. But there are parts that have been improved —...[Read More]

We unbox the new iPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 4

Unboxing videos are one of the curiosities of the internet. For reasons that largely elude us, people seem to love them. Maybe it’s the vicarious equivalent of unwrapping presents on your birthday. Maybe it’s the thrill that only well-designed packaging can deliver. Or maybe the internet is just a strange place and we shouldn’t overthink things. Whatever the reason, we’ve g...[Read More]

Has smartphone innovation peaked? Has our interest in these devices peaked?

As expected… I began writing about this month’s iPhone XS launch and realised that phrase summed up the last few years of Apple product launches. The Steve Jobs years were characterised not only by his showmanship but by his iron-clad insistence on secrecy. No supplier would dare leak any details about upcoming product launches. When an iPhone was mistakenly left in a bar one year, it was co...[Read More]

The most expensive iPhone XS Max will cost R32k

We now know how much the new iPhone additions will cost, and we’re not surprised in the slightest. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available in stores starting 28 September 2018 (with preorders starting tomorrow on the iStore website), and this is how much you’ll have to withdraw from your retirement fund. Earlier today iStore announced pricing for the Apple Watch Series 4 that...[Read More]

The things Apple forgot to announce at this year’s keynote presentation

The Apple hype is not over yet, but following last night’s event the world is three new iPhones and an updated Apple Watch richer. And though those are very cool and all, we can’t shake the feeling that Apple forgot half the program at yesterday’s keynote. Like some intern accidentally deleted essential files and they just decided to roll with it. The grand event revealed three similar...[Read More]

Apple unveils a trio of new iPhones: The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR

Apple’s new iPhone lineup now includes three devices for 2018 — one of the first times that an off-the-wall rumour turned out to be true on the first go. Maybe there’s something to that talk of an Apple-made car after all. As expected, Apple announced two new handsets in their iPhone XS line, as well an all-new device — the LCD-screened iPhone XR, along with the new Apple W...[Read More]

iStore will have the iPhone Xs and Xs Max on 28 September and you can get R2,000 worth of iCare Plus free

South Africans wanting the new iPhone Xs and its bigger sibling, the Xs Max, will be able to get them from iStore on 28 September. Impressively, that’s only a week after the devices launch in ‘Tier 1’ markets like the US, UK and Australia. Look at us, eh? We’re ‘Tier 2’ kids now, baby. At the same time, iStore has updated its get-a-new-iPhone-every-year plan, wi...[Read More]

Apple leaks upcoming iPhone names on their own website

Of course there has to be a leak on the day of Apple’s iPhone reveal. This time we’ve found out exactly what the three new iPhone handsets will be called — and we were not that far off in our earlier speculation. The leak seems to have confirmed that iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR will be the names for the three new smartphones expected to be announced tonight. Website ATH spotted the names...[Read More]

Apple’s annual keynote will be streamed on Twitter for the first time

Okay Apple, when we said that some folks might like to watch the 2018 iPhone unveiling on social media yesterday, we were only kidding. But Apple, it seems, isn’t. For the first time ever, Apple’s entire keynote presentation will be streamed to Twitter — so now you won’t even have to leave your favoured timeline in order to keep up with Apple’s plans for the next few ...[Read More]
