BGR.com has revealed a fresh report from Kantar wordpanel, which says that though Apple has tasted success with Apple iPhone 5 successors, there profit has not matched up to the level of Android phones.
“Apple’s grip on major market destinations remains lower than the same time last year as it increasingly faces challenges from its rivals,” said the same report from Kantar.

The Cupertino based tech giant Apple will release a phablet soon according to the Wall Street Journal. Steve Jobs was wary of larger devices and the iPhone 5 is the largest till date with a 4 inch screen. But according to sources within Apple’s many divisions, Apple has actually approached screen makers to send in designs for a larger screen for the iPhone. There is talk of a 4.8 inch screen to even a 6 inch behemoth. This would put it firmly within the phablet section. And given that it has been consistently losing ground to Samsung, it seems likely that Apple will try and emulate the Galaxy Note series’ success.
While the sales of Apple iPhone have increased over the last quarter, Apple’s share of worldwide phone sales has actually fallen to 14 percent from the 19 percent it was at this time last year. In the same period Samsung’s phone sales have risen from 30 to 32 percent. Quite simply, the Korean company Samsung has a whole lot more on offer than Apple, which has only ever had three iPhones available at the same time. With the release of the iPhone 5S and the cheaper iPhone 5C later on this month Apple is already trying to appeal to a larger market and having a phablet sized phone in the line up might just be what Apple needs to get back to the top.… Read the rest
The Sony Xperia Honami and the Apple iPhone are two of the most eagerly anticipated new smartphones expected to hit the market. While the Xperia Honami is expected to be released on the 4th of September, the iPhone 6 is only expected to reach us sometime in November.
The Xperia Honami and the iPhone will have some pretty good specifications – both of them are expected to run quad core processors probably paired with 2GB RAM chips. Again, both of the phones will have pretty similar screen sizes, the Xperia Honami will be 5 inches and the iPhone 6 will likely be the same or maybe just a bit smaller at 4.8 to 4.9 inches. The iPhone 6 will definitely have the amazing Retina display and the Honami will likely also run a pretty impressive 1080p full HD display. The big difference will be the camera – while Apple is likely to give the iPhone 6 the best camera that an iPhone has ever had, a 12MP shooter capable of slow motion recording Sony wants to market the Honami as aCyberShot smartphone and it is rumoured to host a 20MP camera with a CMOS sensor making for really quick auto focus times and amazing photos.… Read the rest
Most people now think that Apple will be revealing a new iPhone at a media event on the 10th of September followed by its release on the 20th of the month. People are not in agreement as to whether it will be the iPhone 5S or the iPhone 6, though most believe that it will be the iPhone 5S first and the iPhone 6 will be released sometime in the first quarter of next year.
Either way, as is usual, in the build up to the release of a new iPhone the older ones start getting cheaper. So it is pretty important for prospective iPhone 5S owners to decide if they want to put their present phone up for sale and upgrade. The new phone has many benefits – better specification and the completely new iOS 7.
There are many options available to sell an old iPhone. For example Amazon and E-bay both offer lock in periods – meaning a seller can confirm that he will sell and then get the best price in the time period. The sooner a person puts their old iPhone up for sale, the better price or deal they will get, expect the price to fall dramatically by the end of September.… Read the rest
The AllThingsD forum has said that a new iPhone will be revealed by Apple on the 10th of September. Adding credibility to this is one Jim Dalrymple who has till date been absolutely correct when it comes to Apple rumours. What we expect is that Apple will reveal its new iOS 7 and at least one new iPhone by the 10th of September followed by releasing the new phone and operating system on the 18th of the month. It is quite likely that Apple will reveal the new iPhone 6 and the iPhone 5S on the media event on the 10th but Apple will likely only release one phone first. The reasoning is that not only is this the templates that the late Steve Jobs swore by but also that Apple will likely be releasing the new iPad 5 at the same time.
There is a lot of new stuff to expect though! The iOS 7 will have a completely new look to its icons and the background will change with the phone being moved, but the changes aren’t just skin deep. AirDrop will be coming to the iPhone and there will be a new control centre letting users access social media updates and more at a swipe. The new iPhone 5S is expected to use new materials and form for the device as well as new specs; from changing to a more powerful processor to having a finger print sensor in the home button. The iPhone 6 will also have a whole slew of new stuff, but only time will tell!
Big question is whether we will see the rumoured cheaper iPhone 5C as well.… Read the rest
The Apple iPhone 6 is most likely to be released this September. Apple will likely reveal it with its new iOS 7 during the first half of September and then actually release it for sale during the second half. Apple fans have been waiting these developments because the new iOS 7 and the iPhone 6 are said to be a huge jump forward for the Cupertino based tech giant.
What could it mean for Samsung Galaxy S5?
Analysing the Beta versions of iOS 7 can give a very good idea of what to expect from the new iPhone 6. We all know about the new biometric finger print security system embedded in the home button. But also expect much better speakers since iOS 7 has a voice only FaceTime feature for better sound clarity. With its auto update system and inclinometer among other power hungry applications, it is pretty certain that Apple is going to give the iPhone 6 a better battery. Rumours have it that the new iPhone 6 will also have a 128GB memory option and possibly a 12MP camera with HD recording and possibly much more functionality that the previous iPhones. Also likely is that Apple will make the phone’s screen bigger, maybe even up to 4.8 to 5 inches to beat back competition from the Samsung Galaxy S4 and its like.… Read the rest
