If you’ve even had a passing interest in the build up to any iPhone release over the last few years, then you’ll already be well aware that the will they, won’t they discussion about Apple bringing NFC to the platform is old news. In fact, at this point, it’s safe to say that many people have just decided that NFC will come when it comes and that debating its inclusion is just pointless.

Those of us carrying iPhones and iPads around are sometimes all too quick to point the finger at those with Android devices while waxing lyrical about how their phones and tablets are so susceptible to malware. That’s probably the truth if everything is left as nature intended, but if you start to jailbreak that aforementioned iPhone or iPad, then all bets are off.

You’d have to have been living in a cave earlier this year to miss the whole Flappy Bird saga. Becoming hugely popular on the App Store and Play Store almost overnight, Flappy Bird raked in huge sums of money for its creator Dong Nguyen on an apparently daily basis. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough to keep him happy though, and his newfound fame – or should that be infamy – caused him to pull the game and almost disappear.

A few days back, we told you reports (read: leaked information) of a claim that Apple’s new iPhone 6 will ship with a reversible Lightning cable, in that the cable will be pluggable into a USB port either way up. At that time, it was uncertain whether the cables will actually come with the upcoming iPhone or a later iteration.

There’s no doubt in our minds that Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha smartphone will manage to capture a lot of consumer attention when it’s released to market. Samsung’s latest edition to the Galaxy smartphone range is a sleek and slender offering, and becomes the first Galaxy phone to ship with a high-quality metal frame. Great news for those who have previously shied away from Samsung smartphones due to their poor, plastic-infused build quality. It’s great to see the Korean company finally upping its game from a manufacturing quality stance, but how does the new Alpha smartphone compare against Apple’s purported iPhone 6? These beautiful, high-quality renders throw the two devices side-by-side in a battle for consumer adoration.

Those loudspeakers on that smartphone you carry around just aren’t very good at all. Yes, they’ll do the job when you need to speak to someone hands-free, but when it comes to listening to music or a podcast, they just don’t cut the mustard. Unfortunately, buying a speaker can be an expensive business, and while we’ve shown you how to create an extremely inexpensive alternative before, that option was missing a special ingredient that makes this new method particularly awesome: toilet paper.

I personally feel that iPhone 6 leaks have become so numerous over the last couple of months that it might kill the excitement around the actual device to some extent when it’s officially launched in the coming weeks. Still, the leaks are not stopping – if anything, they seem to have increased in pace. And today, in a new set of leaked photos, the battery of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has been revealed once again, and this time it has a capacity of 1,810mAh.

Having a smartphone who’s battery won’t last a day is the kind of thing that drives most of us mad. If you’re carrying around a large Android phone that’s got a battery larger than most notebooks inside it, then you’re probably fine but if you’re using an iPhone, we’re willing to bet that you’re charging that bad boy at least once a day. Sometimes twice.

Phones and tablets now routinely come with built-in gyroscopes, and our watches are well on their way to becoming sensor laden as well, so it’s worth knowing what all these little sensors are capable of. That gyroscope for instance, did you know that it could also be used to steal credit card numbers?

Not saying that good stuff doesn’t exist for free, but generally, chances are high that the well-polished, feature rich app that caught your heart will end up setting you back by a buck or two.

Apple’s iPhone 6 is set to be announced early on next month, and although we’ve seen much of the 4.7-inch model, the supposedly delayed, 5.5-inch variant has continued to elude us. While not offering any direct evidence of the larger edition, a new leak does offer some clues as to how the larger form factor of the iPhone 6 will still be comfortable to use with one hand.
