If you weren’t enrolled in the iPhone Upgrade Program (IUP), then until now you’ve had to make do with walking into an Apple store and hoping to secure an iPhone 7 — or placing an online order which took at least 2-3 weeks for delivery.
As has become tradition, Apple released their yearly iPhone update this September. After two years with my iPhone 6 Plus, I decided to take the plunge and update to the iPhone 7 Plus. This year, Apple added water resistance, a solid-state home button, telephoto camera, A10 Fusion chip, stereo speakers, and more. Read on for my first impressions.
Did you miss out on the preorders for the iPhone 7 launch? If so, Apple is slowly rolling out reserve and pick-up for those who are in their upgrade program as well as those not in the upgrade program who are hoping to get lucky and order a phone online for in-store pickup.
Attention T-Mobile and Telstra customers who are contemplating an iOS upgrade to the latest version 10. Don’t. At least not yet. According to several online reports the upgrade might cause connectivity issues with your phone. T-Mobile is supposed to be issuing a fix within the week.
If you are a huge fan of leather products and just so happen to be ordering an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you should already be checking out Nomad’s line for the iPhone 7 that were announced today!
Apple’s September event is an annual ritual that many of us look forward to each fall. We expect to see new iPhones, a new Apple Watch and, hopefully, a surprise. And, if rumors are true, we will see just how much Apple has changed in recent years, but the evidence will not be Apple removing the 3.5mm headphone jack.
After a week in Israel, I met Raina and we set out on a road trip to Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and now Bryce and Zion National Parks. For cameras, Raina brought her iPhone 6 while I brought my iPhone 6S and the OnePlus 3 I am currently reviewing. Do we regret not bringing dedicated cameras? Not. At. All.
Apple held their Worldwide Developer Conference today. The public portion of the event was the keynote which clocked in at almost 2 hours and featured a top-down review of the highlights expect in what Apple identified as their four foundational platforms – watchOS, tvOS, OS X (later rebranded as macOS) and iOS.
In a day where it seems that smartphones are only getting larger, the iPhone SE is a bit of fresh air. Sure it is nearly identical to the iPhone 5/5S – actually, externally it is identical – but it is a tried-and-true form factor that just works.
We were all glued to the Apple event today; unfortunately, it wasn’t with the usual pulse-pounding excitement we’ve had in the past. Some of us walked away a little disappointed … here are our thoughts!
Well, civilized world, we had a good run. We created airplanes, built skyscrapers, and put men on the moon. A few years ago, it seemed like the technology of Star Trek was finally coming true, from Bluetooth headsets to iPads. It’s over now though, because our engineering prowess is being used to build things like the Flip-It 4-in-1 Selfie Case.
The folks on Reddit have uncovered what appears to be a flaw in the iOS code which will render any 64-bit iOS device (32 bit reportedly unaffected) unusable until the battery power is removed. This flaw occurs when the internal clock of the device is manually changed back to 1970 and then the device is rebooted.
One thing that I’ve always wanted as an iPhone user is the ability to charge my device wirelessly. Lets be honest my fellow Apple device users.. we envy certain Android devices that have this capability.
If you’ve ever used a wallet case, you know that there are many varieties of them, and although handy to carry your multiple cards, plenty of them make your already thin smartphone feel rather bulky. And Mujjo is attempting to rectify this with their leather wallet cases for your iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus. Using Moulded Edge Technology, the…
Switcheasy is known for making simple, minimalistic cases that not only protect your case, but keep the identity and beauty of your phone just as it would be without the protection. So when they sent me over their SwitchEasy Monsters Case for the iPhone 6s Plus I was pretty stoked to see that they updated the funky looking case they once made for…
Today’s technology brings many ways for musicians to record and play their instruments. These options are often expensive and difficult to use.

The iRig Acoustic ($49.99) is a high quality microphone pickup system that allows acoustic guitar and ukulele players to record and play anywhere. Let’s take a look!

So many of us, especially as we enter the holiday season, fondly remember our favorite childhood toys – Barbie, G.I. Joe, Tinkertoys, Lincoln Logs, Lite-Brite, Legos, etc. For me it was the View-Master, that handheld plastic stereoscopic viewer that connected me with exotic locations around the globe. Now Mattel has relaunched the View-Master for the modern, high-tech era.
We all know one of the most important accessories for a phone is the case. I prefer a case that looks good of course, but it also has to provide protection while not adding excessive bulk. Why have a beautiful device and slap a giant, ugly box case on it? Will the iGlaze napa from Moshi meet my needs?
I’ve been an Android user ever since I received a G1 as a gift. I’ve only ever had Android phones and tablets, so I haven’t had a lot of exposure to iOS. When my workplace offered us a phone for work use, I had a choice between a Galaxy Note 4, a Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6.
I asked the Gear Diary team a question last night: if you had an additional $300, how would you spend it? The reason I asked, was that $300 seemed to be the average cost difference between an iPhone/Galaxy phone, and the new Nexus phones (Nexii?) and the Moto X Pure; was it enough to lure switchers?
