  • Celcom shows teaser for Apple iPhone 6, no registration of interest yet

    Celcom shows teaser for Apple iPhone 6, no registration of interest yet

    Unlike the other Malaysian telco's Celcom isn't offering any registration of interest or pre-check page for the upcoming Apple iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. The only thing about this on the site is a teaser image of the iPhone 6 and that it is coming soon to Celcom. Knowing Celcom, their Apple iPhone launch parties tend to be the biggest in the bunch, so it isn't too surprising that they aren't offering any registration of interest page just yet. No news on Malaysia release date or pricing yet for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus but DiGi says that they will be available on 7 November 2014, so stay tuned.

Acting sort of like the usual registration of interest page, the pre-check page will allow Maxis to get in touch with you when it comes out. No news on a possible Malaysia release date or pricing just yet but DiGi have it coming on 7 November 2014 so it isn't all that far off in actuality. Stay tuned for more developments and we'll keep you posted as soon as we know.

  • Apple Watch coming in 2015, devs get WatchKit next month

    Apple Watch coming in 2015, devs get WatchKit next month

    Apple mentioned a little bit about their upcoming smartwatch, the Apple Watch. While it hasn't been released yet, it has been confirmed that the Apple Watch will be coming in early 2015. This means that you'll have to wait till at least Q1 of 2015 (rumours say February 2015) to get the Apple Watch. In the meantime, developers for Watch OS apps will get the WatchKit SDK in November 2014. Bear in mind that the Apple Watch will start from $349 (RM1146) so if you really want it, you should start saving now. No Malaysia release date or pricing yet but we expect it in 2015.

  • All Apple iPhones drop tested

    All Apple iPhones drop tested

    The folks at TechRax did a drop test for all of the Apple iPhone smartphones. This included a side drop and front facing drop for each iPhone onto a hard driveway, revealing that while most of the iPhones can take a beating from the side, nearly all of them smashed from the front. Granted, the front of the Apple iPhone 3G did not shatter but this was mainly due to luck as it dropped on the side first. While it doesn't seem to show any difference from beginning to end, it does show that if you're going to get any Apple iPhone, the first thing you should do is get a shock-proof casing around it quick because an accidental front drop will probably result in a shattered screen. Check it out for yourself in this article.

  • Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Maxis preorders happening on 10 October 2014?

    Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Maxis preorders happening on 10 October 2014?

    While there are still no definite Malaysia release dates or pricing details for the Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Maxis could be planning to open pre-orders for the smartphones as soon as 10 October 2014. This comes from a teaser image posted by Maxis themselves hinting at the #nextbigthing. Traditionally, the slogan "the next big thing" originally came from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, however, the teaser image shows toast and a jar of Apple jam, so it could also be for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The reflection seems to indicate 10 while the toaster is all metal and rounded. As it is, China is expected to get the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on 17 October 2014. We're still expecting the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to hit Malaysia in late October or early November 2014 though.

  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus bent again with witnesses

    Apple iPhone 6 Plus bent again with witnesses

    Rather infamous Apple iPhone 6 Plus benders Unbox Therapy have done it again, this time out in the open, on the streets and with witnesses. Apparently tired of all the conspiracy theories, the video clearly shows that it doesn't take too much force to bend the iPhone 6 Plus and even the Motorola Moto X is brought in to show that other smartphones don't bend as easily. For those getting the iPhone 6 Plus soon or planning to get one, we recommend you get a case for it and take better care of such an expensive smartphone. For those hoping for an apology from Apple, move on, Apple have already said that they'd replace accidentally bent iPhone 6 smartphones and that should be enough for most people. Check out the video for yourself in this article.

  • Apple iPhone camera sample comparison: from the first iPhone to the iPhone 6

    Apple iPhone camera sample comparison: from the first iPhone to the iPhone 6

    A really dedicated photographer recently took pictures using all of the Apple iPhones from the first iPhone to the latest Apple iPhone 6 and mashed the camera samples up together in a big comparison. While many say that the iPhone takes better camera shots, the mashup clearly shows the evolution of the iPhone camera in terms of depth, resolution and colour reproduction. The photographer offers six types of shots including macro, backlit, daylight, portrait, sunset and low-light. Check it out for yourself in this article.

  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus bends in your pocket and in your hands

    Apple iPhone 6 Plus bends in your pocket and in your hands

    Another day, another revelation about the larger and thin Apple iPhone 6 Plus. Apparently, the iPhone 6 Plus has been bending simply from being in someone's front pants pocket. This initially came from several posts in the MacRumours forums with quite a few users showing images of their bent iPhone 6 Plus. The folks at Unbox Therapy took it a step further showing that you can actually permanently bend your iPhone 6 Plus with just your bare hands. While we don't think anyone will intentionally try to bend their iPhone 6 Plus smartphone it certainly means that you should not put this thin phablet in your pocket without some form of casing to protect it.

  • Supposed iOS 8 Wave wireless charging via microwave is a hoax

    Supposed iOS 8 Wave wireless charging via microwave is a hoax

    A tweet supposedly revealing a new wireless charging method called Wave for your iOS 8 compatible device has appeared. According to the tweet, to use Wave, just put your iOS 8 device, be it an Apple iPhone or iPad into the microwave for 60 seconds at 700w or 70 seconds at 800w. Everyone who has ever used a microwave should know by now that you should not microwave metal, even more so electronic devices. Asides from melting and destroying your iPad or iPhone, it could lead to an explosion dangerous enough to harm you and everything else around the microwave. While this may seem an obvious fake and hoax to most people, some users actually have tried it, resulting in a broken iPhone that no warranty will ever cover so be warned and do some research before you do anything.
