    Brilliant website tracks iPhone 6 availability in every single U.S. Apple Store



    Looking to get an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus but aren’t sure if your local Apple Store will have the exact model you want? No problem — you can just go to the brilliant website iStockNow, which keeps track of Apple Store inventory for all iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models in real time.

    What makes this website terrific is its simple layout — it’s a map of the U.S. with tags of every single Apple Store. A green tag means that the store has devices in stock while a red tag means it’s completely out of everything.

    Clicking on the green tag will then drill down information for you further by breaking down which iPhones are available by the carrier they’re on, their storage size and their color. At the Apple flagship store in Boston, for example, there are tons of different models available in multiple colors and storage sizes for AT&T subscribers but Verizon subscribers are stuck with 64GB and 128GB silver models of the iPhone 6 Plus. The flagship Apple Store in San Francisco, meanwhile, is loaded with different iPhone models for Verizon and Sprint customers but is almost completely out of models that run on AT&T’s network.

    Chinese media reports 4 million iPhone 6 reservations, split between iPhone 6 and +



    Yesterday, Chinese iPhone 6 reservations were stated as 2 million in six hours, a rather stunning statistic. Today, an update from the Chinese media press Tencent now says that reservations have topped 4 million. If all these reservations convert into orders, China alone may beat out the iPhone 6’s launch numbers, which — at the time — were considered to be impressive.

    What’s more interesting is that Tencent claims it has exact order numbers from one of the main companies offering reservations. This gives some insight into how sales will be split between the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus.

    According to the report, Jingdong has seen 1,106,379 reservations for the iPhone 6 and 1,189,083 for the iPhone 6 Plus. As many expected, the 6 Plus has a slight edge in the appeal for Chinese custom but it is close. Obviously, we will have to wait for actual sales to follow through on October 17th before making firm conclusions.

    Earlier today, Digitimes said iPhone 6 Plus was responsible for 60% of iPhone 6 production. Outside of China, the 4.7 inch model is generally considered to be the more popular version, although it is unclear how much of this is down to consumer demand or simply a by-product of supply constraints.

    How to repair/replace the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus battery, display, & more Repair Guides



    Need to learn how to replace your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus’s battery, display, or other components? Our friends over at iFixit, the same ones that regularly tear apart the newest devices to have a look inside, today published its latest iPhone repair guides for the recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

    For both devices iFixit has guides on the most common repairs including battery replacement, front panel assembly/display replacement, and getting out those nasty proprietary Pentalobe screws. The iPhone 6 guides can be accessed here, which are quite similar to the almost identical but larger iPhone 6 Plus model here.

    All the tutorials walk you through the process and also provide links to purchase any necessary tools you might not have. The battery replacement, for example, requires 13 steps and a handful of tools like a suction cup, tweezers, a screwdriver, and other tools for prying up any glued down or pressure-fit components. iFixit happens to sell its own tools for the ones that might be harder to find such as its P2 screwdriver for Apple’s Pentalobe screws.

    In case you need a closer look inside the devices before starting your repair, you can also access the company’s recent teardown.

    India can preorder the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as early as tomorrow



    Apple’s all about pushing into developing markets, and with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus now available for preorder in China, the next question is when customers in India can expect to get their hands on the next gen handsets.

    According to Apple, the answer to that question is October 17, when the iPhone 6 family devices will go on sale. Preorders, meanwhile, start tomorrow on October 7.

    Prices haven’t yet been officially announced, but authorised Apple dealers in the country are sending out price lists to customers, as follows:


    iPhone 6

    16 GB – Rs. 53,500 ($868)
    64 GB – Rs. 62,500 ($1014)
    128 GB – Rs. 71,500 ($1160)


    iPhone 6 Plus

    16 GB – Rs. 62,500 ($1014)
    64 GB – Rs. 71,500 ($1160)
    128 GB – Rs. 80,500 ($1305)

    There are also likely to be plenty of exchange offers and discounts for the festive season, although these are unlikely to be revealed until closer to the actual launch.

    With 1.2 billion citizens, India represents a fast-growing smartphone market — with 80 million handsets expected to sell this year.

    Currently Apple is the sixth largest smartphone maker in the market. Recently the company passed a major iPhone milestone in India — having sold an estimated 1.02 million devices between October 2013 and August 2014. It is expected that a total of 1.1 million iPhones will sell in India by the time the fiscal year ends on September 30.

    iPhone 6 Plus accounts for about 20 percent of new iPhones



    Although Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus remains in short supply, its portion of total iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales has increased over the last two weeks, according to analysis of usage-tracking data.

    Mobile metrics firms Mixpanel and Fiksu, which monitor the activity of iPhone owners via the analytics embedded in clients’ apps, have both noted an improvement in the ratio of the iPhone 6 Plus to iPhone 6 smartphones.

    As of Sunday, for example, Mixpanel pegged the iPhone 6 at 6.02 percent of all iPhones, with the Plus representing 1.34 percent. The ratio – 4.5:1, or 4.5 iPhone 6 handsets for every one iPhone 6 Plus – was an improvement for the Plus from the 6.8:1 of two weeks prior.

    Fiksu, another mobile app metrics provider, recorded a similar trend.

    On Sunday, Fiksu’s ratio was 3.9:1 in favour of the smaller smartphone, a stronger showing for the Plus than two weeks before, when the ratio was 6.5:1.

    In other words, about 18 percent to 20 percent of all iPhone 6 smartphones monitored by Mixpanel and Fiksu were the larger model.

    Apple still shows a delay between ordering and shipping for both models, but the lag for the iPhone 6 Plus – at “3-4 weeks” on its online store – remained substantially longer than the iPhone 6 (“7-10 business days”) by a large margin.

    But the increasing share of the iPhone 6 Plus in the usage data indicates that, even though it is harder to find than its smaller sibling, customers are acquiring it in larger numbers. That, in turn, hints that sales – or at least usage – of the iPhone 6 Plus are increasing faster than for the iPhone 6.

    Most analysts expect the iPhone 6 Plus’s share to jump even more once the 5.5in smartphone goes on sale in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) on 17 October. Customers in mainland China can pre-order the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus from Apple’s online store starting Friday, 10 October.

    How To Use Reachability with iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus to Improve Single-Handed Usage



    The larger screen displays of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus make them beautiful to view apps, text, and images on, but some users find that using the devices with a single hand is a bit more challenging. But one-handed usage of the larger screen iPhone models is made considerably easier thanks to the help of a feature called Reachability. Reachability basically pulls everything from the top of the screen down to the bottom of the screen, and it works anywhere in iOS, whether you’re on the Home Screen or in any app.

    Using Reachability on the big screen iPhones is really easy, though it make take a little bit of practice to figure out how to use it properly, and also to get using it right.

    Double-tap on the Home button to switch into Reachability mode





    This makes and have all the screen content arrive at the bottom of the display, making it really easy for one-handed users to reach what was once on the top of the screen, which is now near the bottom and easily in thumbs reach.

    When any onscreen element is touched in Reachability, the screen returns to normal and exits reachability. This is an important aspect of how the feature works, because everything will snap back to full-size view. Thus if you want to reach something at the top of the screen yet again, you’d want to double-tap on the Home button again.

    It’s worth pointing out that you can also exit out of Reachability without interacting with any onscreen elements by simply double-tapping the Home button again.



    Finally, we should distinguish between a double-tap on the Home button and a double-click, the two are not the same, the latter is physically depressing the Home button. The tap that we use here is very much a tap, like that used when interacting the touchscreen itself, simply a light touch on the Home button. Two of those light touches concurrently will enter and exit from Reachability.

    It took Apple just 6 hours to sell 1 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets in China



    iPhone 6 preorders have officially started in China on Friday, with Apple’s three local carriers partners having sold no less than 1 million units in six hours, as Fortune reports.

    In addition to China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom, the three carriers that already took more than a million iPhone 6 preorders, Apple’s online stores and “thousands of authorized resellers” have also started taking preorders, according to Tencent.

    Even more interestingly, more than 9 million iPhone 6 units have apparently been reserved with retailers before official preorders even started. Chinese website JingDong had registered more than 9 million iPhone 6 reservations, almost evenly split between the iPhone 6 (4,542,448 units) and iPhone 6 Plus (4,694,853 units), although the numbers favor the 5.5-inch device slightly.

    Apple has already confirmed it sold over 10 million iPhone 6 units during the phones’ launch weekend, and is believed to have sold more than 21 million units in the first two weeks, in the 30+ markets the phones are available in at this time.

    The new iPhones will launch in China, and also in India, next Friday, on October 17th.

    15 tips for squeezing as much battery life as possible out of your iPhone



    After all these years, battery life is still one of the biggest pain points when it comes to smartphones. Battery technology is always improving, of course, but not nearly fast enough to offset the various new tech that drains the juice from our smartphones. Especially where the iPhone is concerned, the phone’s design is also constantly getting slimmer so there is less space to fit a battery with each new generation.

    But don’t despair — we’re here to help.

    Apple’s iPhone 5s lasts longer on a charge than any iPhone model that has come before it, but when it comes to battery life more is always better. This is why features like Samsung’s new ultra power-saving mode on the Galaxy S5 are so exciting.

    While there’s no way for active smartphone users to avoid having to charge their iPhones once a day, being smart can stretch the life of your iPhone’s battery by 15%, 30% or even more depending on how far you’re willing to go to extend it.

    The following is a list of 15 things you can do to squeeze as much life as possible out of each iPhone charge. Follow them all for the biggest impact, or just do as many as you can if there are some features you can’t bear to be without.

    Also feel free to keep this post on hand as an emergency survival guide — if you’re running around and won’t be near a charger for an extended period of time, go through this check list in order to ensure that your phone won’t die.

    1. Lower your display brightness as much as possible and disable “Auto-Brightness” (Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness)

    2. Kill Siri’s “Raise to Speak” option (Settings > General > Siri, then disable the Raise to Speak)

    3. Disable automatic music downloads, automatic app downloads and automatic app updates (Settings > iTunes & App Store)

    4. Enable “Reduce Motion” (iOS 7’s parallax effect doesn’t just make people sick, it also kills their iPhone batteries — disable it in Settings > General > Accessibility)

    5. Turn off all vibration (Settings > Sounds)

    6. Disallow frequent location learning (Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services, then switch off the Frequent Locations option)

    7. Turn off 4G/LTE (Settings > Cellular)

    8. Enable Wi-Fi any time you’re near Wi-Fi (Apple’s iPhones are great with Wi-Fi power management, so Wi-Fi uses much less battery than cellular data)

    9. Even still, be sure to disable Wi-Fi when you know you’ll be out of range for an extended period of time

    10. Reduce “Auto-Lock” time so your display turns off after just 1 minute (Settings > General)

    11. Turn off Bluetooth when you’re not using it (Swipe up from any screen to bring up the Control Center, then tap the Bluetooth icon)

    12. Disable AirDrop when you’re not using it (Swipe up from any screen to bring up the Control Center, then tap AirDrop and select Off)

    13. Disallow background data refreshing for apps that don’t need it (Settings > General > Background App Refresh)

    14. Set email accounts to “fetch” instead of “push” (Settings > Mail, Contacts & Calendars > Fetch New Data, then disable Push and set each email account to Fetch)

    15. There are more extreme measures you can take when things really get dicey, such as enabling airplane mode or disabling mobile data, but the tips above will conserve as much power as possible while still leaving your iPhone functional.

    iPhone 6 preorders reportedly top a massive 20 million units in China



    iPhone 6 reservations started in China as soon as Apple announced official launch plans for its 2014 smartphones in the biggest mobile market in the world, days before Apple’s announced preorder date for the country, topping by some accounts over 9 million. Actual iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus preorders began on Friday in China, with Apple reportedly selling over 1 million units in just six hours. Since then, Apple may have sold even more units in the region, according to a Digitimes report.

    The publication says that iPhone 6 preorders have topped 20 million units from October 10 to October 13, citing a report from Chinese publication Tencent.

    Apparently, Jingdong Mall took more than 10 million iPhone 6 preorders during the period, with the main three mobile operators in the country selling more than 10 million iPhone 6 units as well.

    Jingdong Mall sold 4.66 million iPhone 6 and 4.82 million iPhone 6 Plus units, the report said.

    A recent report suggested Apple may have sold over 21 million combined iPhone 6 units in the first two weeks of sales in more than 30 markets, not including China.

    The iPhone 6 is supposed to start selling in stores in China on October 17.

    iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus coming to 36 new countries this month



    Apple is bringing the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to 36 new countries by the end of this month. The Cupertino company today confirmed that the devices will be available in Monaco on October 17 — the same day they go on sale in China and India — and then in Israel on October 23.

    In addition to Monaco and Israel, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will expand its availability across Europe, the Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and Africa. Here’s the complete list of countries who can expect to see the devices this month:

    Friday, October 17: China, India and Monaco
    Thursday, October 23: Israel
    Friday, October 24: Czech Republic, French West Indies, Greenland, Malta, Poland, Reunion Island and South Africa
    Thursday, October 30: Bahrain and Kuwait
    Friday, October 31: Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, Estonia, Greece, Guam, Hungary, Iceland, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macau, Macedonia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, South Korea, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine and Thailand

    By the end of this month, Apple’s newest smartphones will be available in a total of 69 countries and territories around the world. By the end of 2014, the company hopes to increase that number to 115 — making this the fastest iPhone rollout since the device made its debut back in 2007.

    The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have already been big successes for Apple, with a record number of pre-orders taken when the handsets first became available on September 12. A week later, when the devices went on sale in 10 countries, Apple sold a whopping 10 million units during the first three days alone.

    In China, where pre-orders have officially begun ahead of this week’s launch, more than 20 million iPhones have already been claimed so far.
