    Alleged iPhone 6 Prototype Fetching Over $100,000 On eBay

    How much would you pay for an iPhone prototype? $1,000? $10,000? How about $100,000? A 64 GB iPhone 6 said to be a prototype model is currently commanding more than $100,000 on eBay.

    This App Avoided Being Made Useless By Using The iPhone’s Charger (But Not For Charging)

    Remember Cycloramic? It was one of our favorite iOS apps of last year. It allows you to take hands-free 360° selfie panoramics by using the iPhone’s vibrating motor to propel it around your desk.

  • Gmail Gets An iPhone 6 And 6 Plus Update

    Gmail Gets An iPhone 6 And 6 Plus Update

    In my initial review of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, I didn’t spend too much time dwelling on third-party app compatibility. That’s because A) I was content with the way iOS handled upscaling lower-resolution apps, and B) I was primarily spending time in first-party software. But using Gmail on both devices via the native app over a longer period of time has proved trying. Today… Read More
