The upcoming iPhone 6 will be bigger than before with its purported 4.7″ and 5.5″ sizes. Currently their iPhone 5S with its 4″ screen has been doing reasonably okay with its 1,560mAh capacity but as the screen gets bigger, it is natural to expect higher battery consumption like its bigger Android counterparts.
For the next iPhone, its purported batteries have surfaced revealing a 1,810mAh capacity unit for the smaller 4.7″ and a much bigger sized 2,915mAh for its alleged 5.5″ model. The iPhone 4.7-inch’s direct nemesis is undoubtedly the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and that packs a slightly higher 1,860mAh capacity battery. For its bigger 5.5″ model, having a 2,915mAh battery might sound little compared to other phablets that are having at least 3,200mAh capacity. But don’t forget that Apple devices have been quite frugal with all day battery life with half the capacity of its Android competition.
The new iPhones are expected to be revealed at their upcoming September 9 event.
Check out the clearer images of the batteries after the break.
Entertainment tabloid site TMZ has been buzzing with its latest scoop on the new iPhone 6. As people got excited or disappointed with what the next iPhone would look like, the so called exclusive pictures are nothing but a cheap knock off of the purported iPhone 6.
The folks at 9to5Mac had rebutted its claims by pointing out several UI flaws which turn out to be a re-skinned version of Android. The new iPhone would be running on the latest iOS 8 but the interface is rocking on an older iOS 7 apperance. Another giveaway is the overly thick font used for the calendar and the use of Back button on the overlay interface. The exterior design is still heavily based on what has been speculated on the internet for several months now.
While the good news is that this isn’t the real device, will the real iPhone be drastically different from what we’ve seen so far? Thankfully we won’t have to wait too long as Apple is said to be announcing the next iPhone this coming 9th September.

After months of anticipation and leaks, the iPhone 6 is expected to be announced next month, right after the busy IFA 2014 week. According to recode, Apple is organising a major event on September 9 which is quite a significant date when it comes to product announcements.
From what we’ve seen and heard so far, the new iPhone 6 is expected to be up-sized with a 4.7″ and a 5.5″ screen. This would mark a major jump from its current 4″ offering which is the smallest among the flagship smart phones in the market. The initial leaks also point to a slimmer design with rounded edges which follows closely with its current iPad Air and its latest iPad mini with Retina Display. The biggest change to the iPhone experience also comes from the software where it harnesses the latest features of their latest iOS 8.
Smart phones are no longer just playthings and they can be serious tools in the field. For the handyman, fixing problems around the household can be a daunting task especially when dealing with elements invisible to the naked eye.
Introducing FLIR One Thermal Imager, a special accessory that gives your iPhone 5/5S additional pair of eyes. Its built-in thermal cameras makes it easy to spot for water and air leaks as well as abnormal overheating from electronics. For enhanced clarity, it also uses the iPhone’s camera making text readable on the display.
With the FLIR One, you can just point to any object within 15 feet and it can even tell you the temperature quite accurately. On the fun side, this is pretty useful for hide and seek, or tracking wild animals at night without a touchlight.
The FLIR One is currently available in the US and it retails for US$350. Check out its demo video and official images after the break.
Say what you want about the iPhone 5S but it is still the best selling smart phone model right now. Despite being 8 months old, it still manages to outsell newer 2014 flagship models for the month of May 2014 according to a market research report by Counterpoint.
Samsung in the other hand clinches more spots with the Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 taking #2, #3 and #4 spots respectively. Surprisingly Apple’s iPhone 5C still manages #5 followed by its over 2 year old iPhone 4S at #6.
The replica kings are at it again. Before the iPhone 6 is officially announced, its cheap imitation units have appeared looking like the leaked designs we’ve seen so far. Nobody knows for sure if the real iPhone 6 would look anything like this but it is convincing enough for the regular joe. At some photos, it looks badly put together with some screws being exposed at the bottom. On the surface, it appears to be running on iOS but you can be sure that it isn’t the real deal underneath.
Head after the break for more images of the iPhone 6 imitation unit.
If you’re planning to get a new iPhone 5S this Raya, Celcom is running a special promo where you can get the 2nd unit for half price. Retailing at RM2,399, the second iPhone 5S 16GB can be yours for as low as RM1,188.
The half price promo is only applicable if the first device is a iPhone 5S 32GB or 64GB purchased with 24 months contract. If you opt to get a iPhone 5S 16GB as the first unit, the second unit is offered at RM1,688.
In terms of plans, you get the option of Celcom First Premier or Elite with 5GB of bolt-on data for 24 months duration. Despite its half price offer, the second unit is also locked into contract with 24 months duration. Fortunately it is a lower data-only commitment plan of Celcom First mPro Plus at RM88/month. Overall, it is still a couple of hundred ringgit cheaper than getting another postpaid contract separately.
This offer is valid until 31st August 2014 and you can check out the plan details after the break. For more information, head over to Celcom’s promo page.
