This time around, we found the first deal on the fifth-generation Apple TV 4K. You’ll also find great prices on older iPhones (and even a stainless steel Apple Watch Series 2) in our roundup of the week’s best Apple Deals.
The fight between carriers to create the hottest iPhone X deal is starting to seriously heat up.
Just a few hours after Sprint revealed its big iPhone X discount, Verizon has come out with details on its own plan to give customers a big discount on Apple’s futuristic phone if you trade in your iPhone.
Every major iOS update slows down older devices to force users to upgrade. At least that’s what recent reports have suggested.
The truth is, Apple is doing no such thing. Benchmark data proves that iPhone performance drops over time are just a myth. The 4-year-old iPhone 5s is about as fast with iOS 11 today as it was with iOS 7 when it made its debut in 2013.
October 8, 2014: Apple says it is “surprised” after GT Advanced Technologies, the supplier that was rumored to be manufacturing ultra-strong sapphire displays for the new iPhone 6, announces that it is filing for bankruptcy.
The announcement appears to mark the end of the road for sapphire glass being used for the iPhone screen.
Fans queuing for the latest iPhone is something customary for new launches, but according to reports from across the globe, demand isn’t what it has been in previous years.
Interest in the new handset seems to be muted, with Apple stores seeing a fraction of the lines that have greeted previous iPhone launches. At Apple stores in New York City, where typically hundreds of fans are queued up for hours to buy the iPhone, the entire line was gone within the first hour of the store opening.
September 22, 2014: Apple notches a new sales record with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, selling a massive 10 million units in the first weekend the handsets go on sale.
The eagerly anticipated phones bring a redesigned form factor that will persist for years, including larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays that lure phablet fans. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus also boast an A8 chip, improved iSight and FaceTime cameras, and — significantly — Apple Pay.
September 19, 2014: The iPhone undergoes its biggest upgrade — both figuratively and literally — since the first generation iPhone with its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets.
The iPhone 6 brings a new 4.7-inch form factor, while the iPhone 6 Plus boasts a massive 5.5-inch design. While the previous generation iPhone 5 had been slightly taller than its 3.5-inch predecessors, the iPhone 6 generation is the first time Apple abandons that strategy and decides to take on the big-screen Android phablets.
