And the two in concert also make it easier to use Moment lenses - Wide and Tele - which attach directly to the case and are immediately recognized by the app.</p> <p>The case connects via Bluetooth LE and uses a cell battery, which should last about six months or more, and <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/584288471/moment-case-worlds-best-iphone-case-for-mobile-pho">Moment&rsquo;s new Kickstarter campaign</a> is asking for US$49 (about s$66) for the case, or US$125 (about S$170) for the case and one of the available lenses with a cap and cloth sleeve. More elaborate bundles are available, and everything&rsquo;s supposed to ship worldwide beginning in June if funded.</p> <p>Which shouldn&rsquo;t be a problem at all. As of this writing, mere hours after the campaign began, it&rsquo;s already raised more than US$33,000 of the US$100,000 (nearly S$135,190) goal, and it seems likely that the Moment Case will be funded before the end of the day. So the lingering question is: Will it be the iPhone camera contraption that really breaks through?</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/584288471/moment-case-worlds-best-iphone-case-for-mobile-pho">Moment Case on Kickstarter</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iphone-6/review">Apple iPhone 6 review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/iphone-6/moment-first-iphone-camera-case-you-might-actually-want-use/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/iphone-6/moment-first-iphone-camera-case-you-might-actually-want-use/news#comments Cameras Crowdfunding iPhone 6 Tue, 27 Jan 2015 19:50:27 +0000 Hafizah Osman 1458671 at http://www.stuff.tv Usher in the lunar new year with this limited edition Year of the Goat iPhone 6 http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/usher-lunar-new-year-limited-edition-year-goat-iphone-6/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> If you really love goats, or are born in the year of a goat, why not get it on your iPhone 6? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="426" title="Usher in the lunar new year with this limited edition Year of the Goat iPhone 6 " alt="Usher in the lunar new year with this limited edition Year of the Goat iPhone 6 " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/goat_0.jpg?1422350416" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>We&rsquo;ve seen <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/iphone-6-will-come-24-carat-gold-or-platinum/news">platinum-plated iPhones, gold-coated ones</a>, and even <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/if-you-ve-got-17-million-spare-you-can-buy-amosu-call-diamond-iphone-6/news">diamond encrusted units</a>, but to add on to this exclusive iPhone collection, UK-based company, <a href="http://www.goldgenie.com/gold-iphone-6-elite-year-of-the-goat-limited-edition.php" target="_blank">Goldgenie</a>&rsquo;s unveiled one that is unlike any other.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/hafizahosman" title="View user profile.">Hafizah Osman</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Stand out from the rest </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The only other difference is the packaging.

And now three months seems horrendously long yet again.</p> <p class="p1">[Source: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZoO8QVMxkk">YouTube</a>]</p> <p class="p1"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/avengers-infinity-war-two-parter-leads-marvel-s-latest-round-film-announcements/news">Avengers: Infinity War two-parter leads Marvel&rsquo;s latest round of comic book film adaptations</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/MZoO8QVMxkk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A car is being 3D printed right now </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">If you go to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan this week, you can see <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/chevrolet-unveils-bolt-ev-200-mile-range-30000-hatchback/news">cool new cars</a> and even hear the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ford/forza-motorsport-6-announced-xbox-one-new-ford-gt-leading-charge/news">latest video game news</a>. But you can also see a car created out of thin air - or rather, 3D-printed on the show floor.</p> <p class="p1">Local Motors, which&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/welcome-future-transport-3d-printed-car/news">made a big splash</a> with its prototype 3D-printed cars last year, is currently printing and then will assemble the Strati, the &ldquo;world&rsquo;s first 3D-printed car,&rdquo; on the show floor. It&rsquo;s made of ABS plastic with carbon fiber for strength, and it takes about 44 hours to print the 212 total layers. The end result is the core of the vehicle, which is then paired with the actual inner workings of a car (drivetrain, wiring, tyres, etc.) to produce a drivable vehicle.</p> <p class="p1">The company is also using the opportunity to announce its first two micro-factories, which will let buyers customize a vehicle and have it printed from scratch in very little time. They&rsquo;ll emerge first in the States, in Knoxville, Tennessee and at National Harbor outside Washington D.C. You can see their magic in action right now at the auto show - which might not look like much as of this writing, but it should be something special by the weekend.</p> <p class="p1">[Source: <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2015/01/12/local-motors-3d-printed-car-strati-detroit-2015/">Autoblog</a>]</p> <p class="p1"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/welcome-future-transport-3d-printed-car/news">Welcome to the future of transport - the 3D-printed car</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="797" title="Local Motors&#039; Strati (photo credit: Jeremy Korzeniewski, Autoblog)" alt="Local Motors&#039; Strati (photo credit: Jeremy Korzeniewski, Autoblog)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/localmotors-strati-detroitautoshow.jpg?1421198332" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Man caught smuggling 94 iPhones </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">Ever wondered what a suit of armor comprised entirely of iPhones would look like?

If not, and it was a different smartphone or tablet, you might be in the minority: app analytics firm Flurry reports that Apple devices claimed 51.3% of all new device activations during the week leading up to and including Christmas Day.</p> <p>Flurry collects its information based on installations of the 600,000+ apps it tracks, and not only was Apple the lead manufacturer of devices activated worldwide during that span (with the iPhone 6 leading all individual devices), but it wasn&rsquo;t even a close race. Samsung was next with 17.7%, Microsoft/Nokia was third with 5.8%, and Sony and LG mustered 1.6% and 1.4% respectively.</p> <p>&ldquo;While the holidays in general and Christmas in particular are not the sole indicator of the smartphone market share and trends,&rdquo; cautions the report, &ldquo;it is safe to say that Apple&rsquo;s newly released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have had a blockbuster holiday season.&rdquo;</p> <p>On that last point, the report also notes that phablet activations surged over last year. Just 4% of device activations last year during this span were phablets, but that number rose to 13% this year. Meanwhile, tablet activations dipped (especially in the full-size category), and small phone activations now comprise just 2% of those recorded.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.flurry.com/blog/flurry-insights/apple-and-apps-dominated-christmas-2014">Flurry</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-still-number-one-choice-christmas-tech/news">Apple still the number one choice for tech Christmas</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Halo 5 beta is live, plus limited editions revealed </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Hyped for&nbsp;<em>Halo 5: Guardians</em>, next fall&rsquo;s massive Xbox One exclusive?

The description is sadly vague right now, but if you&rsquo;re willing to take the plunge, that one will set you back US$249.99.

They&rsquo;ve been a huge hit, selling 10m units in just one weekend. Even if you&rsquo;re one of the lucky few to get one before they sold out, we bet there are still a few things you didn&rsquo;t know about your shiny new purchase.</p> <p>What if we told you the main image above, was shot by an iPhone 6 Plus?&nbsp;Mind.

It makes your apps load and run faster. It&rsquo;s also less power hungry, sucking up less juice (being 50% more efficient than the A7 chip on the iPhone 5s) while you bash highly detailed skulls on games running Metal, or watch high definition video. Its processing power is also borrowed by the iSight camera to produce stunning photos through advanced imaging features.</p> <p><strong>Accelerometer</strong></p> <p>The iPhone knows everything. It knows when you&rsquo;re skiving and walking less. There&rsquo;s a snitch called the accelerometer that tells on you to the Health app. Moral of the story - get an iPhone, use the accelerometer to track your movements, and lead a healthier lifestyle.

The barometer works concurrently with the former, measuring how high you&rsquo;ve climbed and whether you need to take more steps to hit your goal for the day. Be glad that the iPhone doesn&rsquo;t have a part that gives you a shock when you&rsquo;re underachieving.</p> <p><strong>Battery</strong></p> <p>Despite the larger, higher resolution screens and bump in specs, the new iPhones promise better battery life. You can expect around 11 hours of continuous video playback on the 6, while the 6 Plus goes up to 14 hours. And we&rsquo;ve gotten over a day and a half on our review units with heavy usage to back up those claims too.</p> <p>With iOS 8, you can now also see which apps are draining the most battery from Settings.&nbsp; You can&rsquo;t actually do anything in there though, it&rsquo;s just knowledge for you to make usage adjustments.</p> <p><strong>Bluetooth LE</strong></p> <p>The presence of Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy means that your Bluetooth streaming, AirDrop transfers, or iBeacon interactions are faster and use less energy. That&rsquo;ll result in better battery life. It&rsquo;ll only make a difference if the device you&rsquo;re connecting to has Bluetooth LE too, of course.</p> <p><strong>Bendgate</strong></p> <p>We&rsquo;ve all read reports of the iPhone 6 Plus warping in users&rsquo; pockets. Someone even made a viral video of himself damaging one pretty badly by bending it with his bare hands. However, Apple has come out to say that official complaints on the iPhone 6 bending are less than 10. Consumer Reports also released their findings that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are actually pretty resilient. From our experience so far, no such problem exists with regular use.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/bend-gate-iphone-6-plus-users-report-their-phones-bending-their-pockets/news">Bendgate: iPhone 6 users report their phones bending in their pockets</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="690" height="425" title="Barometer" alt="This is EVERYTHING you need to know about the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Barometer.jpg?1419734345" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> C is for... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Camera App</strong></p> <p>The great thing about the iPhone camera is that it&rsquo;s so easy to use and takes great shots every single time. And with the new update, you can capture even slower slow-motion videos at 240fps, perfect for more epic shots in all their fluid glory.</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re looking for something even more cinematic, time-lapse videos should do the trick. Just press the record button and your camera will do all the hard processing work for you. The only thing you have to worry about is your battery running out before you get all the footage needed.&nbsp;</p> <p>As for stills, you now get exposure controls in real time. Taking a photo or a video and tapping the screen (just like you would normally focus) will turn up a little sun icon. Tapping it will bring up a slider that you can use to adjust exposure up to four f-stops lighter or darker to get your desired image.&nbsp;</p> <p>Landscape shots are also better than ever, with 43MP Panoramas and better exposure adjustments so they emerge as one seamless stitch. Sunset at the Grand Canyon? No problem for this smart shooter at all, even with the tricky shadows.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Campus</strong></p> <p>Whenever you see mentions of Cupertino in anything related to Apple, they&rsquo;re talking about the Apple Campus, their corporate headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California. It currently occupies around 850,000 square feet, with the company even leasing an additional 3.3m square feet of office space in the city itself to accommodate all its employees. &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Continuity</strong></p> <p>Reap the benefits of having an entire suite of iThings with this seamless feature (give you have iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite). Hear a call coming in, but your iPhone&rsquo;s nowhere near you while you&rsquo;re working on your Mac or iPad? Just answer it directly (or reject it) on your other devices so long as your iOS 8-running iPhone is on the same Wi-Fi network. You can also message contacts directly from your iThings without rummaging through your belongings for your iPhone.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s not just about calls and texts either. Handoff is a feature that allows you to continue working across iThings on iOS 8 native apps like Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. This is perfect if you need to be on the move without losing any of your work or go through the tedious process of downloading and uploading again. Works for Safari browsing and composing in Mail too.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/imac/how-answer-calls-and-messages-across-your-mac-ipad-and-iphone-continuity/feature">Use Continuity like a boss</a></strong></p> <p><strong>Craig Federighi</strong></p> <p>As Apple&rsquo;s senior vice president of Software Engineering, Federighi was the man responsible for developing iOS 8.

Besides the obvious augment in screen size (from 4in to 4.7in), the iPhone 6 sports a matte all-metal rounded back, with glass that curves to meet the edges on the front for a smooth, continuous form. A huge difference from the flat, sharp angles on the 5s.</p> <p>The size difference is even more obvious on the iPhone 6 Plus. It&rsquo;s 5.5in as compared to the 4in&nbsp; iPhone 5s &ndash; by far, the biggest of any iPhone. But besides the size and thickness, most of the design elements we mention above are the same across the newly launched units.</p> <p>As for thickness, the iPhone 6 has a thin 6.9mm profile, while the 6 Plus&rsquo; sits at 7.1mm. They&rsquo;re both considerably skinnier than their 7.5mm predecessor, despite packing a lot more power. There&rsquo;s quite a big design change too &ndash; the lens on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus protrudes from the phone.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Design" alt="This is EVERYTHING you need to know about the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Design.jpg?1419734345" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> E is for... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Eddy Cue</strong></p> <p>Another familiar face on stage in Apple&rsquo;s keynotes, Cue is the senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. This means he&rsquo;s the one who takes care of &mdash; and the one who talks about &mdash; the iTunes Store, the App Store, the iBookstore, Siri, Apple Maps, and iCloud.</p> <p><strong>Extensibility</strong></p> <p>iOS has customarily been a closed system, but it&rsquo;s recently opened up to developers for deeper integration with third-party apps. This means you can access features from other apps on Apple&rsquo;s native apps, and vice versa.&nbsp;</p> <p>It also means you&rsquo;ve got more options on where to share your content via the Share sheet, which used to only contain certain social media networks. Documents can also be opened, shared, and edited more easily between different apps, so working on your iOS device just got a lot more convenient.

You&rsquo;ll never be out of focus when taking a selfie or FaceTiming with someone halfway across the world. It also does burst shots (10 per second) to capture your best moments. Don&rsquo;t worry, deleting the unflattering ones can be done with just a few taps. No one needs to know that those exist.</p> <p><strong>Family Sharing</strong></p> <p>You no longer have to spend extra if all members of your family are participating in a Candy Crush-off.

The new sensor now comes with f/2.2 aperture, 1.5 micron pixels, and a new technology called Focus Pixels, leading to blazing fast AF. Face detection is also more intelligent, meaning your best shots from burst mode are less likely to have you looking all squinty eyed like Quasimodo.&nbsp;</p> <p>There&rsquo;s one major difference between the two iPhone 6 models though; the iPhone 6 uses digital image stabilisation while the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilisation. The latter is more effective for taking clear shots in low light, as it works with the A8 chip and M8 motion coprocessor, to compensate for any shaky hand motions.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="635" height="425" title="iOS 8" alt="This is EVERYTHING you need to know about the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iOS%208_0.jpg?1419734345" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-9"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> J is for... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Jonathan Ive</strong></p> <p>Probably the most famous Apple executive other than Steve Jobs and Tim Cook.

The higher resolution is very obvious, and it&rsquo;s by far the most impressive when compared to any of the older iPhone models.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Reachability" alt="This is EVERYTHING you need to know about the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Reachability.jpg?1419734345" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-18"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> S is for... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Safari</strong></p> <p>Besides being used for web browsing, you can also save pages for viewing on Safari, even when offline. Just save those pages to your Reading List. It gets synced to all your devices through iCloud too, so you can read something on your iPhone and continue on your MacBook when you get home. The app also now supports extensions like on Google Chrome.&nbsp;</p> <p>Tip: You can also use Safari to instantly scan your credit card details. Just tap on &ldquo;Scan Credit Card&rdquo; on the payment page, and Safari will use your camera to capture your credit card details and automatically fill up the appropriate boxes.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Siri</strong></p> <p>&ldquo;What&rsquo;s your function in life,&rdquo; asked no one to Siri? The intelligent personal assistant is now more attentive to your needs.

The curves make it superbly comfortable in use despite its increased size, while its thin profile also helps. On the downside, the camera lens does protrude from the phone&rsquo;s case, which may not please everyone, while the distinctive light-coloured lines on the back at top and bottom won&rsquo;t be to all tastes either. The latter, at least, are present for practical as well as aesthetic reasons: with a metal-backed phone it&rsquo;s hard to scoot the signal in and out, and the flush rubberised lines sort this.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iphone-6/review">Apple iPhone 6 review</a></strong></p> <p><strong>User Experience (iPhone 6 Plus)</strong></p> <p>The iPhone 6 Plus will undoubtedly be too big for some hands.

And if the videographer happens to be on the move as well, don&rsquo;t worry about jerky video. Thanks to cinematic video stabilisation and continuous autofocus, your moving shots will look silky smooth, especially when paired with the iPhone&rsquo;s image stabilisation.</p> <p><strong>Voice over LTE&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>You&rsquo;ve been enjoying LTE data speeds, but did you know you&rsquo;re being dropped back to a 3G network during voice calls? Not anymore on the iPhone. Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is still in its early stages, but the launch of the iPhone 6 pushed telcos to introduce this high-quality call service. This also means you get to surf on LTE speeds while you&rsquo;re taking a call. Useful when you have to quickly grab a piece of info off the web while on a conference call.</p> <p>You&rsquo;ll also enjoy another benefit &ndash; better battery life. Without the constant switch between a 3G and LTE network when you are between calls, your phone won&rsquo;t require as much effort or juice.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-22"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> W is for... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Weight&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>Considering the iPhone 6&rsquo;s 4.7-in size, its weight comes in at only 129g. Comparatively, the iPhone 6 Plus weighs 172g regardless of its 5.5-in frame. Seems pretty light for a mega-sized iPhone, we must say.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Wi-Fi&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>It&rsquo;s a given that a new model from Apple usually includes faster Wi-Fi speed. This is true for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, both of which support 802.11ac, which is 3x faster than regular Wi-Fi 802.11n. But again, you&rsquo;ll need to know there&rsquo;s a catch &ndash; supporting faster download speeds doesn&rsquo;t equate to getting it. You&rsquo;ll need a fast connection linked to your Wi-Fi network.</p> <p><strong>Wi-Fi calling</strong></p> <p>Did you know you can make a call over Wi-Fi? This is a lifesaver when your office Wi-Fi network is decent, but the area has poor cellular coverage. Even if you move out of Wi-Fi range, you won&rsquo;t have to worry about a disconnected call &ndash; the phone switches over to a cellular line seamlessly.</p> <p><strong>Widgets&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>On your Notification Centre is the Today page, where iOS 8 lets you add widgets for a quick summary of information from apps you&rsquo;ve installed.

their rampant in-app purchases have caused some confusion amongst consumers, not to mention a lot of surprise bills - and eventually lawsuits about how they&#39;re marketed and administrated. That&rsquo;s led to changes in how digital storefronts present their free-to-play offerings, and Apple has just made its own move.</p> <p>You&rsquo;ll notice it right away on the App Store: free apps are now downloaded by tapping a button that says &ldquo;Get&rdquo; rather than &ldquo;Free,&rdquo; with &ldquo;In-App Purchases&rdquo; written in small text below when applicable. The word hasn&rsquo;t been entirely banished from the iOS storefront; after all, the Free listing on the Top Charts remains. But Apple clearly sees value in changing the context of how you grab gratis apps and games.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://recode.net/2014/11/19/free-apps-arent-free-in-apples-app-store-any-more/">Recode</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-ipad-air-2/review">iPad Air 2 review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Motorola debuts Keylink </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Do you frequently misplace your smartphone and/or keys?

The newly-released Keylink is a small trinket that you&rsquo;ll attach to your keychain and pair with your Android or iOS phone via Bluetooth, letting you find one if you have the other.</p> <p>It works up to 100 feet away, and you can make your phone ring with a push of the Keylink, or show the keys on a map via the Motorola Connect app. It&rsquo;s priced at US$24.99 (about &pound;16) and promises a year of battery life, plus if you&rsquo;re running Lollipop on your Android device, you can use the Keylink with your trusted device settings so you don&rsquo;t have to enter a password when your keys are nearby.

So what exactly happened?</p> <p>The Wall Street Journal has a fascinating report on the breakdown between the two companies, suggesting that GT Advanced wasn&rsquo;t in a position to produce the amount of sapphire crystal it agreed to (see mistakes in the image above), that Apple&rsquo;s hard-driving partner agreements were a thorn in the company&rsquo;s side, and that countless management and manufacturing issues killed the iPhone 6&rsquo;s sapphire intentions.
