RadioShack has just announced that it will be dropping the price of the 16GB iPhone 5s to just $99 with a two-year contract from AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint starting today. What’s even more exciting is that customers can trade in older phones to cover the price of their new purchase.
The company did not mention how long the promotion would last but if you’re looking to get your hands on the latest iPhone, this may be the best option!
Let us know if you make the jump!
Do you remember last year when those hackers managed to bypass the Apple Touch ID system with a mold of the correct fingerprint? That same technique works for the Samsung Galaxy S5's new fingerprint scanner as well. Except with the S5 the user is granted access to your Google Wallet, PayPal, and other sensitive information. Where as the iPhone 5s Touch ID system still prevents users from accessing digital wallets and making payments in the App Store. The Samsung Galaxy S5 fingerprint sensor is far from a 'wow factor", in fact other than being hackable and being far too priveldged from a security standpoint, it doesn't work that well as a fingerprint scanner. Check out the next page for a bit more information on this newly discovered bug, as well as a fun video and GIF of the process in action.
Many reports suggest that Apple will release two larger iPhones this year: one with a 4.7-inch screen and another with a 5.5-inch screen. This rumor has been floating around for a few months now, but today is the first time we see an actual leak of a larger iPhone’s part.
Photos of what appears to be the iPhone 6 front panel have leaked on Weibo, showing that it will indeed be significantly larger than the current iPhone 5s. Check them out:
There are many rumors surrounding Apple’s iTunes store these days. In a world of declining music sales, Apple is fighting to change things around with several new additions to their service. The latest piece of leaked information comes from music blogger Robert Hutton, who claims that Apple may be adding high-resolution music to iTunes soon.
As the smartphone industry moves towards larger sizes, many people are expecting Apple to release an iPhone around the 5” inch mark. Nearly all of the high-end flagship Android devices have screen sizes of around 5” inches, so there is definitely demand for larger smartphones. Rumor has it that Apple will be releasing two versions of the next iPhone 6: one with a 4.7-inch screen and another with a 5.7-inch screen.
The folks over at TechSmartt have just posted a new drop test video where they put the iPhone 5s, Samsung Galaxy S5, and HTC One (M8) in a battle against gravity. Of course, all three smartphones eventually come to a sad broken state, but which phone lasts the longest? Check it out:
Spotify has just announced that it is reducing the price for its premium service to only $4.99 a month for U.S. students. Spotify, along with all of its major competitors, usually charges $9.99 per month for the awesome service, but this new promotion lets any student in the US get 50% off the regular price for 12 months.
After 12 consecutive months, the price jumps back up to its regular $9.99 tag, but that still amounts to $60 of savings. So, head over to Spotify now if you want access to all the music the world has to offer for only $5 a month!
For those of you looking to grab a new iPhone off-contract, Virgin Mobile may be your best bet. Virgin Mobile (owned by Sprint) is now offering the 16GB iPhone 5s and 16GB iPhone 5c off-contract for only $385 and $315 respectively. These prices are MUCH lower than Apple’s $649 and $549 price tags.
