iPhone LTE Speed Test: iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 5s [Video]



Apple claims the iPhone 6 has 'Faster LTE': "With faster LTE — up to 150 Mbps — iPhone 6 users can experience faster download and upload speeds for browsing the web, streaming music, making video calls, and more." During the iPhone 6 keynote, Apple SVP Phil Schiller revealed that these speeds are possible through a technology called carrier aggregation. The new iPhone 6 uses Qualcomm MDM9625M LTE Category 4 modem chip which offers up to 150 Mbps downlink data rates and 50 Mbps uplink data rates. Let's take a look if this is actually any faster than the previous iPhone 5S.

iClarified did a quick test. They have found the spot with the absolute best reception possible. Testing was done late at night, when network usage is lower. The speeds are actually amazing.

iPhone 6 showed 100 Mbps download speed and 35 Mbps upload, while iPhone 5S - 35 Mbps and 15 Mbps respectively.  Impressive, isn't it.

Apple to present new iPads, iMacs, OS X Yosemite on October 16th



Apple will reportedly hold a special event on October 16th to launch new iPads, iMacs, and OS X Yosemite, according to Re/code.

Sources tell Code/red the company will hold its next special event on Thursday, Oct. 16 — not the 21st. Headlining the gathering: The latest updates to its iPad line, along with those new iMacs that 9to5Mac told us about earlier this week. Also: OS X Yosemite. Given the breadth and spectacle of Apple’s September event, this one will be a more laid-back affair held at the company’s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino, without any mysterious white structures and awkward one-song concerts.
