Those of you who have been debating about getting a new iPhone may want to make the jump now as Walmart is offering the lowest price on the iPhone 5S that we’ve ever seen. Walmart is beating Best Buy’s $50 discount on the iPhone 5S by offering Apple’s flagship phone for only $119 on a two year contract. You can even get a bigger discount on a new iPhone by trading in old electronics for Walmart gift cards.
The iPhone 5C is also being slashed down to only $29 with a two year contract. It doesn’t get much better than that, right? Let us know if you decide to take the plunge and how you like your new idevice!
Starting Sunday, February 16, Best Buy will offer a $50 discount on all iPhone models purchased with a 2-year contract from AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. The sale will last less than a week and will end on Saturday, February 22, so if you’re thinking about making the jump to a new iPhone, now would be a good time to do it.
During this short promotion, the iPhone 5 will be free, the iPhone 5C will cost only $50, and the latest iPhone 5s will sell for only $150 on contract.
If you hurry and reserve a new phone purchase with Best Buy by tomorrow, you can also receive a $50 gift card. The card can be applied to the price of your new phone purchase any time before the end of the year.
We’ve seen several reports over the last few months that Apple is secretly working on two larger sized iPhones. The iPhone 6 is rumored to come in a 4.7-inch display size, and another at 5.5-inches. But what would a phablet-sized iPhone look like? Ciccarese has put together some beautiful mock-ups comparing the two rumored iPhones to the current iPhone 5s model. Head inside for more:
Apple has just added a new promo video for the iPhone 5S on both its Youtube channel and iPhone webpage. The new ‘On the runway with iPhone 5s’ ad features footage from the Burberry Womenswear fashion show from last September. Check it out:
It’s interesting that Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts joined Apple only a month after the two companies collaborated as Apple’s new SVP of retail.
Nonetheless, although we haven’t seen the new ad appear on TV yet, we’re expecting it to make the rounds soon.
We reported earlier today about an analyst claiming that the iPhone 6 design was already complete and included a 4.8-inch design. Well, a larger iPhone now looks even more likely as the Wall Street Journal is reporting the very same thing. However, WSJ believes that Apple will actually release two larger iPhones (instead of the one reported by Timothy Arcuri), and will scrap the plastic iPhone 5C model.
Well folks, it has been a long time coming, but it looks like a larger iPhone may actually become a reality soon. While almost all of the iPhone’s competitors have screens around the 5-inch mark, Apple has for a long time gone against increasing the screen size. However, a new report from an analyst at Cowen and Company claims that Apple has already chosen its design for the iPhone 6, and it includes a 4.8-inch display.
We’ve definitely enjoyed iOS 7 since it’s release here at iPD, but we have to admit that it definitely does have its fair share of problems. While some of us have had a fantastic experience, others have had their idevices plagued with constant crashes. It’s been incredibly frusterating, but Apple has just promised us a fix.
Today, Mashable recived an official statement from an Apple spokesperson on the matter, confirming that the company is aware of the problem and working to fix it in the next software release.
Only months after the release of the latest iPhone 5s, rumors of the next generation iPhone are already starting to float around in the blogosphere. The latest rumor comes from a Chinese report, claiming that the iPhone 6 will keep the current 8-megapixel sensor for its rear camera, but bring new enhancements such as optical image stabilization.
