Apple very quietly launched a brand-new iPhone model

iPhone 6 vs iPhone SE

When the iPhone 6 debuted, there was no 32GB option in the lineup. As was standard for the time, it came in 16/64/128GB configurations. Since then, Apple has bumped the base storage options on new iPhones to 32GB, but the 16GB iPhone 6 (and iPhone SE) have remained on sale.

So it's a little unusual that Apple has put a 32GB iPhone 6 on sale in China in a gold color. What's even stranger is that the phone isn't available through Apple retail channels, but instead only through Taiwan Mobile.

Apple says it fixed the unexpected iPhone 6/6s shutdown issue for some users

iPhone 6s Battery Shutdown Issue

Some iPhones out there keep shutting down unexpectedly, even when there’s enough battery left. Apple has made few official comments on the matter since the problems started plaguing various devices including the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6. The company kicked off a limited battery replacement program for the iPhone 6s, without including older devices in it. Apple did suggest that future software updates might fix the battery issues, without revealing more details. And it appears that, contrary to what we thought, iOS 10.2.1 actually fixes some the unexpected shutdowns.

Apple addresses ‘Touch Disease’ with reduced cost repair for iPhone 6 Plus

iphone-6s-plus-3 Many an iPhone 6 Plus has been struck down by the scourge known as “Touch Disease,” but Apple has not acknowledged the problem was systematic or widespread — until now. In what we have to imagine is as close to a mea culpa as Apple is likely to offer, iPhone 6 Plus devices exhibiting flickering displays and touchscreen issues are eligible for a reduced-price repair.

Bizarre Beijing ruling says iPhone 6 copies Chinese phone, Apple must halt sales

Bloomberg reports a Beijing Intellectual Property Office ruling that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus violate the design patent of a Chinese phone, and that Apple must cease sales of both models within the city.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus infringe on Shenzhen Baili’s patent rights because of similarities to its 100C phone, the Beijing Intellectual Property Office wrote in its decision. Apple, whose iconic gadgets helped define the modern smartphone industry, didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Bizarre intellectual property rulings are not unusual in China – witness Apple losing the exclusive right to the iPhone trademark there last month – but this one does appear to set a new record, as the iPhone 6 looks nothing like the Baili 100C …
