The Apple Watch stole the show from this year's new iPhones

6 monthes ago   |   By The Verge

The most exciting announcement from Apple's annual iPhone event on Tuesday was not a set of three new smartphones, but a smartwatch. The Apple Watch Series 4 - with its rounded corners, larger display, and built-in EKG scanner - became undoubtedly the most sought-after gadget in the aftermath of Apple's fall hardware refresh. While many people have bemoaned having to choose between the iPhone XS and XR, or are simply forgoing a mobile upgrade entirely, the Series 4 stood out for how simple of a purchase it is for those who've been sitting on the sidelines of the wearable market.

Sprint Says It, Too, Will Support the Apple eSIM in Latest iPhones

Sprint Says It, Too, Will Support the Apple eSIM in Latest iPhones

6 monthes ago   |   By Phone Scoop

Sprint plans to support the eSIM found in the Apple iPhone Xs and Xs Max, reports PCMag. Earlier this week, Apple published a list of carriers that will support the eSIM and Sprint's name was conspicuously absent. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon were represented by Apple on stage. According to PCMag, Sprint's absence from the list was merely a matter of timing. The company will support the eSIM when it goes live later this year. The eSIM in the iPhone Xs and Xs Max will give owners the flexibility to switch carriers using software rather than a physical SIM card. The eSIM serves as a way for...

Report calculates that Apple subtly raised the average iPhone price by 20% for fiscal 2019

Report calculates that Apple subtly raised the average iPhone price by 20% for fiscal 2019

Loup Ventures analysts Gene Munster and Will Thompson have weighed in on the new Apple iPhone models unveiled last Tuesday. If you're an Apple investor, the news is good. If you're an iPhone buyer, not so much. Here's why. With the average price of the nine new variants calculated to be above the fiscal 2018 average selling price of $745, the chances are pretty good that for fiscal 2019, the ASP for the iPhone will be higher. Considering that professional investors and analysts look at the iPhone's ASP to help them make investment decisions, this bodes well for Apple's shares next...

Apple's new iPhone names are bad, so it's hard to see where it goes from here

Apple's new iPhone names are bad, so it's hard to see where it goes from here

6 monthes ago   |   By The Verge

This year, Apple reached the end of its iPhone X names. Next year remains a mystery. Apple has gone through all the numbers from one through ten, skipping two and nine for its own reasons. Now, for better or worse, next year, it'll likely need to figure out a new naming scheme.
Apple hastened its way toward a dead end last year when it decided to switch to Roman numerals rather than continuing with numbers as it had done in the past. A report from Bloomberg at the end of August indicated that the people behind the names struggled to come up with names that would work. Since this year's...
