On its website, Apple waxes poetic about the improvements in LTE speed offered by the iPhone 6. The fact that it, as Apple states, “has more LTE bands than any other smartphone” and “supports more advanced wireless technologies to boost performance” should, in theory, mean that it’s considerably quicker in terms of speed than the preceding iPhone 5s. Taglines and promises are one thing, and as we’ve learned only too many times, real-world performance can often be another, and so to dispel any lingering notion of doubt, you can see the iPhone 6 in a side-by-side speed test with last year’s flagship iPhone 5s below.

Anyone who had the original iPhone back in 2007 will remember that it had an appalling camera. It wasn’t just not up to the standards of today – it wasn’t up to the standards of 2007. Thankfully, as the years have rolled on by, someone at Apple realized that people like to take photos with their phones, partly thanks to their always-connected nature and the fact that they’re always with us.

Apple’s iPhone 6 has been leaked incessantly over the past few months, and despite having had many close-up looks at the revised form factor, a new head-to-head video pitting the device up against the iPhone 5s shows just how much work the Cupertino giant has put into improvements this time around. Unfortunately, but as we’d expect at this stage, the iPhone 6 isn’t fully operational, but nevertheless, you get a rough idea of what it’ll be like to hold.

It appears that the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is all the rage these days, with not only the rest of the world taking part in their own willful dunking, but big names in the tech industry in particular. Our interest, being a tech news outlet, of course, extends more to the latter, and we always have a keen eye out for more and more top tier people taking the challenge. The latest participant, although most definitely top tier, is not a person – it’s Samsung’s Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone.

We have had more than enough reasons to believe that the new iPhone 6 will come next month; specifically, on September 9th in a media event. All the evidence right now points in that direction, and if we were to take any hint from what Walmart has done today, it’s all but confirmed. The retail giant has announced temporary price cuts to both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models, offering the former at $79 and the iPhone 5c for an astounding, not to mention highly lucrative, $0.97.

We see all manner of video clips whereby some of our favorite gadgets are destroyed or otherwise irreparably harmed. Sometimes, there’s a practical reason for the destructive behavior, such as to test the robustness of a particular product in a given situation. However, it’s frequently the case that these coveted devices are trashed purely for entertainment, and the perverse pleasure of the on-looking tech world. Case in point, a new video demonstrating what happened when an iPhone 5s was run over by a train. Yes, you read that right – a train. Below, you can catch the video, and we’re pretty sure that you won’t want to miss this one.

Even though Apple’s iPhone remains the subject of acclaim for its high-end, premium finish, the same cannot quite be said when it comes to durability, with scratches, scrapes, cracks and dents commonplace among the iPhone-rocking faithful, and as such, the market for protective cases and shields is very lucrative indeed. Logitech, an official distributor of third-party Apple accessories and peripherals, has just come through with a cheap, robust solution for iPhone users looking to keep their handset guarded at all times, and notably, doesn’t go overboard with regards to adding bulk.

The Apple iPhone regularly scores high when it comes to customer satisfaction, quality of camera, and in fact, most other smartphone-centric research. These traits of popularity perhaps go some way to explaining why the fruit company’s flagship 5s was the most popular worldwide in the first quarter of this year, and moreover, why the antiquated iPhone 4s managed to grab fifth spot.

You may have already heard of gold iPhones being sold for silly money to anyone daft enough to buy them, but the ‘Caviar iPhone 5s Supremo Putin’ takes things one step further by engraving Russian premier Vladimir Putin’s bonce on the back of it. In fact, just to make sure you get your patriotism badge – assuming you’re Russian, that is – the phone even has the first two lines of the country’s national anthem as well as its coat of arms engraved for good measure. Well, if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right, after all.

With Apple widely expected to unveil a new iPhone line-up in the coming months, it’s somewhat inevitable that the price-drops on the current-gen models will ensue, and Walmart has kicked things off by offering the flagship iPhone 5s (16GB) for a cut-price $99. The price, which takes into consideration the signing of a two-year contract, is the cheapest you’ll find at this moment in time for a subsidized iPhone 5s, and with the iPhone 5c also dropping to $29 on a 24-month package, both of Apple’s most recent handsets can be snapped up at a discounted rate.

Apple’s WWDC may be causing a stir in San Francisco, but that hasn’t stopped the Cupertino company from pursuing additional product sales through marketing. This year’s WWDC keynote speech introduced us all to the Health app and HealthKit framework that was speculated on so much in the last few months.
