FIRST LOOK: An early hands-on look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus!

iPhone 6 Plus First Image

Here we go... as is tradition, we always manage to get our hands on Apple's new iPhones a wee bit early. This year brings two different models, and judging by what has been reported and written, the iPhone 6 is the evolution of the iPhone line, while the iPhone 6 Plus can almost be considering a new type of product for Apple — one that might even be able to replace the iPad mini.

Here are my initial observations, followed by a boatload of photos.

No one understands the Apple Watch strategy, and it’s totally a winner

Apple Watch Price

Not much is known about Apple's upcoming Apple Watch pricing besides the fact that, what assume is the Sport edition, will start at $349. Whether this even includes bands, we do not know. It is likely there are going to be different storage capacities for the less expensive models, so it's not inconceivable to think that $349 is going to get you the Sport Watch with something like 16GB of storage, and then another $100 for 32GB and another $100 for 64GB.

You just made a very huge mistake by ordering the iPhone 6 Plus

iPhone 6 Plus Vs iPhone 6

Look, the iPhone 6 Plus has a lot going for it. Its battery is like, so much better than the iPhone 5s. The camera is even better than the iPhone 6! And the screen! Holy screen! But there is one big problem here... most of you just picked it because it was the "better" and more expensive option. You're all probably like, "Yeah this is great, larger phone, I can do more. Bigger is better. AMERICA! Cheese fries with extra grease!"

APPLE’S ANNOUNCEMENT RUINED: Is this the first video of a real iPhone 6?

iPhone 6 review pictures and video from Apple's event

Apple's event this coming Tuesday hasn't been much of a surprise for industry-watchers. However, it appears that a working iPhone 6 has made its way into the hands of an Apple fan who has started posting pictures and videos of the device on a Chinese site. The phone and software don't seem to be edited in any way and this very much is the real deal.

We can see a new Passbook icon which features a magnetic credit card at the top, assumingly for the fact you are now going to be able to pay using your iOS devices everywhere you go. Let's hope there is still a surprise come Tuesday, though I personally think this is going to be the biggest and most important Apple event in a long time. You can view the video here.

DASH Radio aims to reinvent radio for the digital world

DASH-Radio-iOS

It's an interesting time for radio in the digital world. On one hand, you have traditional terrestrial radio stations still fighting to stay relevant in the days of Spotify and Pandora by simply simulcasting their existing radio feed in something like iHeartRadio, and you have Sirius XM which is limited to just the United States and has high monthly fees. A new company and service called DASH Radio is aiming to reinvent how we know and listen to the radio, and from what I can see, it's doing all the right things as it launches both the app and service today.

Apple scheduled to release iOS 8 beta 4 Monday July 21st

Apple iOS 8 Download

One of our Apple sources has let us know that the company is currently planning on making iOS 8 beta 4 available to developers and testing partners on Monday, July 21st. This would be a two-week gap between iOS 8 beta 3 and beta 4, differing from the three-week gap from beta 2 to beta 3. We have also been able to get a glimpse at the iOS 8 beta release calendar and we will continue to share iOS 8 beta release dates with you as we get closer to them. While Apple’s iOS betas are only meant for developers to use on test devices, many people run the software on their personal iPhones and iPads, and with each new beta comes improvements and also potential new bugs.

Introducing the BGR Seal of Approval

BGR Seal Of Approval

There are countless technology products and devices that are released on what seems like a weekly basis, and unfortunately, a lot of them suck. They're gimmicky, they have minor updates, they are buggy, they are hard to use, and they break. So, we thought that there has to be a way to help the regular consumer cut through the noise and determine that they are buying a quality product. And based on feedback we have received from many consumer electronics manufacturers, they would also love a way to highlight their best and most quality products.

With that, we are very excited to introduce the BGR Seal of Approval and also announce the first product we are awarding it to.

It has a redesigned interface, support for gestures, comments are now working again, it uses the dynamic system font sizes, sharing has been updated to take advantage of the iOS 7 share sheet, push notifications work for breaking news, and of course, bugs have been fixed.
