    ​Qualcomm's shares fell 3 percent on Monday after two brokerages said Apple might drop the chipmaker in favor of Intel as the supplier for modem chips in its next generation of iPhones.

  • Rumours of a new 4-inch iPhone 6c just won't die

    Apple's iPhone event, rumuored to be held September 9, is going to be jam-packed with new products if the spate of leaks we're hearing are true. The latest: Apple has an iPhone 6c on deck, and it could be the 4-inch version many are dreaming of.

  • Apple's getting ready to sell 90 million new iPhones

    Apple ordered 70 million to 80 million iPhones to be produced for the initial run of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last year. It was a record number, and Apple managed to sell more phones than anyone expected. The company is confident that it will sell even more phones this year: Apple just ordered 85 million to 90 million iPhones for this year's initial run.

  • Don't bend it that way: Apple says only nine customers complained of bent iPhones

    Apple, responding to Bendgate, Bendghazi, or whatever you wish to call the issue of seemingly-bendable iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, claims the problem isn't nearly as widespread as the Internet hullabaloo would suggest. Apple told the Wall Street Journal a mere nine people have come in with bending complaints since the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus's launch last Friday.

  • Why I'm returning my iPhone 6 (well, maybe)

    Like many (many, many) people, I preordered a new iPhone 6 as soon as I possibly could. I didn't choose the iPhone 6 Plus, the clown-shoe version of this device, but went for the standard-sized model. I've often desired to have a slightly larger screen, so I welcomed the idea of a 4.7-inch iPhone. I thought it would allow me to see more content, and use larger fonts, which would help my aging eyes. After using it for a few days, however, I'm not sure that I really want to keep it. I may return my iPhone 6 and continue using the iPhone 5s.

  • Record broken: iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus sales top 10 million in opening weekend

    Another year, another record breaking debut for the latest iPhone. Apple has announced it sold 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models combined after the first weekend of availability - a new record for launch weekend iPhone sales. It's no surprise, after Apple announced that iPhone 6 and 6 Plus pre-orders hit 4 million in the first 24 hours alone.

  • Hands-on: New iPhones pack big features in thin package

    Few announcements summon as much attention as a brand new iPhone, and this year, for the second time in as many years, Apple gave us two models of its smartphone to pore over. I got my mitts on the newest mobile devices in the hands-on area after Tuesday's event, and here are a few first impressions about the latest entries in Apple's mobile-handset line.

  • Apple second quarter 2013 results set for April 23, income dip possible

    Fans of money, hold on to your hats. Apple has announced that its next quarterly financial conference call will be held on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 2pm Pacific, 5pm Eastern (US time). In all likelihood, CEO Tim Cook will be joined by CFO Peter Oppenheimer, and the inscrutably terse company treasure, Gary Wipfler, to discuss Apple's performance in its second fiscal quarter of 2013.

  • Apple earnings preview: Focus on the iPhone 5

    It's that time again: On Wednesday (US time), Apple will regale us with stories of the products it has sold in the past quarter, and the money it has added to its overflowing bank account. Financial analysts will pepper CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer with questions, which - if previous calls are any indication - the duo will deftly dodge.
