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.
How fast is iPhone 6 compared to other popular smartphones? PhoneBuff performed a serious of real tests.
Each phone was raced through a series of apps including the camera, photos, web browser, Dictionary.com, Photoshop Touch, Google Earth, Temple Run 2, Fifa 14, Smash Hit, and Angry Birds. The series of apps was then opened for a second time to test the multi-tasking abilities of each device.
Take a look at the results in the video below:
It appears that aside from the financial results in the fourth fiscal quarter, on October 20th, Apple is planning to release iOS 8.1 and launch its long-awaited payments service called Apple Pay. This is what Bank Innovation writes. Another thing, which indicates that the next-gen mobile operating system will indeed come less than in three weeks, is the fact that it has been recently seeded to developers for testing.
Apple on Tuesday released a candidate golden master version of OS X Yosemite and a fourth public beta of OS X Yosemite to developers and the users registered in the public beta-testing program. Tuesday’s releases come two weeks after the releases of previous Yosemite betas that contained numerous bug fixes, design tweaks and other improvements.
Apple on Monday released iOS 8.1 to developers for testing. As you probably know, iOS 8.1 is one of the three versions of the mobile operating system the guys from Cupertino are currently working on. The release comes several days after the release of iOS 8.0.2, which contained a wide number of bug fixes.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter and according to the recent web traffic data, the guys from Cupertino are currently testing three iOS 8 versions. This may indicate that Apple has come up with a new strategy of updating its mobile operating system. Earlier, a major update was released once in at least 5 or 6 months. For example, iOS 7 was released in September, 2013 and iOS 7.1 that contained the support of CarPlay, surfaced only in March of 2014. Taking into account the fact that Apple is already testing iOS 8.1, iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.3, it appears that the new versions of iOS may be released alongside new product launches.
We all know that the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are incredibly fast and efficient. But how much time does it actually take for the new handsets to boot and how this boot time is different from the time iPhone 5s and earlier models of the smartphone demonstrate? Let’s find out.
On the video below, you may take a look at the full line-up of iPhones taking part in the ultimate boot time test. The rules of this test are incredibly simple: all the handsets should be running the latest firmware version they support and be freshly updated.
It’s Sunday today, that is why I have prepared a short list of the most popular and the most interesting posts of the past seven days for you. If you have time and desire, you may take a look.
Earlier this week, Apple released iOS 8.0.1 and iOS 8.0.2, which contained a number of important fixes for Phone, Keyboard, Safari, Sharing, SMS/MMS messages, Photo Library and VPN. After seeding the new iOS 8 version to customers worldwide, the guys from Cupertino finally stopped signing iOS 7.1.2 firmware version. This means that all those people who migrated to iOS 8 or later no longer can downgrade.
According to the latest report from a research firm called Consumer Reports, Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus is not as bendable as it was believed. It took 90 pounds of force to bend the recently-released 5.5-inch iPhone and about 70 pounds of force to deform its 4.7-inch sibling. The larger handset is actually stronger, which is a bit of surprise for me.
Yesterday I told you that it is possible to bend the iPhone 6 Plus while carrying it in the pocket of pants all the time. Today, a guy named Lou (from Unbox Therapy) decided to prove or refute the rumors and took his own iPhone 6 Plus to the ultimate bend test. As it turned out, it was a bad idea.
Following the release and record-breaking first weekend sales, AnandTech experts took both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for testing and benchmarked them. Moreover, the newly-released handsets were compared to the iPhone 5s and a number of rival handsets including the HTC One (E8), Motorola Moto X, Samsung Galaxy S5, Google Nexus 5 and some others. If you one of those people, who like Apple and its products, you will be pleased with the results of the benchmarks.
Immediately after the start of sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in several countries, first drop and crash tests began to appear on the Internet. The bad news is that both handsets are not doing well in these ultimate durability tests. While they somehow manage to remain intact when dropped on the side and back, they have no chances when dropped on the face. The smaller iPhone seems to demonstrate slightly better results, but in general, both handsets can’t be called the strongest devices on the market. Take a look at the video and you will understand what I mean.
You have probably heard the rumor, according to which Siri was supposed to “learn” to identify music tracks using Shazam functionality. Well, looks like the guys from Cupertino indeed integrated such a useful feature into their virtual assistant and it is now available for all the iOS 8 users.
Aside from new iOS 8, the guys from Cupertino have recently released OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 to users worldwide. The release comes after long weeks and even months of testing. The latest version of OS X can boast of a wide number of stability improvements and bug fixes and is recommended for all users.
