If you live in the U.S. and are planning to buy an iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C, then you should buy one from Walmart as the retail store has cut price of iPhone 5S and 5C. The retailer is selling 16 GB iPhone 5S for $119 and 16 GB iPhone 5C for $29.
iPhone 5C has created a huge buzz among general people due to its low price. Most of the carriers are selling it 'on-contract' along with a price of $550 or more and a monthly fee of $70+. But Virgin Mobile is offering the handset for $299.99 and a monthly fee of $30 without contract.
Apple launched the plastic iPhone 5C in the midst of a major marketing push. However, the handset didn't really catch on and in broad terms, it was a failure. Now Apple's former advertisement executive Ken Segall gives his opinion as to why the handset failed.
China Mobile is the world's largest carrier with more than 760 million subscribers. After many long rounds of talks, Apple finalized an iPhone deal with China Mobile recently. Now, the company has shipped nearly 1.4 million iPhone 5S units to the carrier.
Walmart will be offering a $72 discount on Apple's iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S as part of a two-week holiday sale from this Friday, details inside.
Honda is among the notable auto vendors who have been integrating technology in their vehicles. The company has now introduced a 7-inch built-in touchscreen which comes with iPhone compatibility and can be controlled and used through the smartphone.
When Apple launched iPhone 5S, the company was still resolving the supply-chain problems of the new handset. From a long wait time of 2 to 3 weeks until last month, Apple is now shipping iPhone 5S within 3 to 5 business days now.
Currently if by some crazy turn of fate, you end up breaking your iPhone's screen, your local Apple Store replaces the entire unit for you. But Apple is planning to change that soon, new reports cite. The company intends to equip its stores so that they can repair and replace parts of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C rather than replacing entire handsets.
It has been a while since Apple released its iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S handsets. While the sale of iPhone 5S has been really strong, Apple has shied away from revealing iPhone 5C numbers. Reports from within Apple's supply chain now reveal that Apple is cutting down iPhone 5C orders by 35% while at the same time, bumping iPhone 5S orders by 75%.
Every time Apple launches a new handset, it's an uphill battle for the company to have the handset approved in the Chinese market. In the case of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, it is only now that Apple has been granted regulatory approval. This means that we may soon see China Mobile carrying the new handsets.
