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 …

Apple has released iOS 9.3.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The bug fix update to iOS 9.3, released last week, contains a crucial improvement for iOS users: it addresses the widespread issue where apps (and sometimes the whole OS) would crash or hangs when tapping links.

We’ll update the post if we spot anything else notable, although the Release Notes do not suggest anything else has changed …

Here’s how Apple’s new 4-inch iPhone SE compares to the rest of the lineup

Small iPhone fans, rejoice! Apple has finally updated its 4-inch iPhone for the first time since the iPhone 5s in 2013. Dubbed the iPhone SE, Apple’s 2016 4-inch iPhone could pass for the iPhone 5s if you weren’t looking too close (save for the rose gold version), but how does it compare to its predecessor as well as the rest of the current iPhone lineup? We break it down below:

An iPhone Is the Latest Thing to Catch Fire on a Plane

Lithium-ion batteries and aircraft have some bad blood: Boeing’s 787 Dreamliners were grounded three years ago because of battery fires, the FAA banned all lithium batteries in hold luggage , and now an innocent iPhone has caused a fire on an Alaska Air flight.

Poll: If the rumors are true, will the redesigned antenna lines transform the iPhone 7’s looks?

Let’s face it, whatever anyone thinks about the rest of the iPhone 6/6s design, those antenna lines running across the back of the phone have never been popular.

The need for them resulted from Apple’s decision to switch to an all-aluminum casing. Radio signals can’t pass through the metal, so Apple broke up the casing with two plastic strips which are transparent to radio signals.

If the latest claimed chassis images are genuine, this is a design issue Apple aims to fix for the iPhone 7

Entire March issue of Bon Appétit magazine shot exclusively on iPhones

Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 5.30.06 PM

Popular foodie magazine Bon Appétit today revealed that it shot all of the images for its March print issue with an iPhone. The team behind the magazine detailed the process in a post on its website, explaining that instead of using traditional DSLRs like they normally do for print issues, they used iPhones for all of the photography.

Each photographer gave their respective thoughts on the process during an interview, with many of them expressing shock when the decision was revealed to them. Some of them even had to upgrade from older generation iPhones to something more modern. “I needed to upgrade from an iPhone 5 to a 6S, and I had never used anything like it to shoot something for print, so it wasn’t just me putting faith in the phone, but also in the magazine’s idea,” photographer Matt Haas said.

Several of the photographers noted that ditching their traditional camera gear made for a much more liberating experience. Some of them purchased accessories for the iPhone camera, including various lenses, tripod adapters, and even selfie sticks.

One of the photographers, Daymon Gardner, had the following to say on the experience:

“We found an adapter that would click the iPhone onto a tripod. Then, because the iPhone lens is approximately equivalent to a 35 mm lens on a DSLR, we bought a few accessory lenses, one of which made the camera more like a normal lens of around 50 mm. Another was a wide-angle and the third was so good for close-up shots, it would’ve been better suited for taking photos of ants.”

Regarding the overall experience shooting with an iPhone compared to a DSLR, Gardner noted that it kept the entire process “really conversational and loose”. Likewise, Michael Graydon expressed that shooting with an iPhone is the ultimate release of the DSLR associated ego:

“I’ve been a photographer for about 20 years, and I’ve been through 8×10 cameras, film—you name it. In the past, the bigger and scarier-looking the camera you pulled out, the more intense and professional you looked. Now, you have to let go of the ego you attach to the tool, and the iPhone is the ultimate expression of that.”

While the photographers noted differing opinions on the process in the end, they generally agreed that the iPhone has a more than respectable camera. “I can’t quite accomplish the depth of field that I want, even when I do the thing where you touch the screen on the subject and move the slider up,” Gardner noted. “I still prefer to shoot with my Canon, but Mardi Gras just started here in New Orleans, and I’ll definitely have my iPhone with me.”

Haas expressed similar sentiments. “It’s not like I’m going to start doing all my projects with my cell phone, but now I definitely use it more for Instagram,” he said.

Apple has long touted the camera capabilities of the iPhone. The company launched an award-winning ad campaign focused on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus camera, and even brought the campaign back recently for the iPhone 6s. The iPhone 7 is excepted to take Apple even further ahead in the camera space, perhaps even incorporating a dual-camera setup.
