New Apple TV expected to launch in October for under $200

apple tv

The next-generation Apple TV will launch in October for less than $200, reports 9to5Mac. Citing sources familiar with the matter, the outlet claims that company executives are still finalizing pricing, but the latest options call for a starting price of either $149 or $199.

Since this will be considerably more expensive than other streaming media devices on the market, 9to5Mac says that Apple plans to keep the current third-gen Apple TV around. Its more modest $69 price tag will serve as an entry-level product into the Apple TV line.... Read the rest of this post here

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus: Leaked pricing paints grim picture for your wallet

iPhone 6s Plus Prices Release Date

Apple earlier this week confirmed that its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus event will take place on September 9th, just as a report predicted a few weeks ago. Another report recently revealed that Apple will sell five iPhones this fall, including two brand-new devices, although it contained no information on pricing. However, a fresh leak has taken care of that and suggests that the new iPhones will not be more expensive than their predecessors. However, that’s not necessarily good news for buyers looking to purchase the cheapest new iPhone 6s and who also want plenty of storage on the phone.

Protect your iPhone, try a Jimmy Case

I was stood underneath those big information boards at Euston train station last week and, judging by the people sitting on the floor around me, it’s fair to say that people break their iPhones quite a bit and then keep on using them.

The latest iPhone handset, like many premium handsets, is proper expensive. Insurance isn’t so much, but the excess is, so people put up with a broken screen or a chipped frontage and just work around it.
Protect your iPhone, try a Jimmy Case

The solution is to get a solid, well-fitting and decent case. Whilst trying to find a case for a friend, I stumbled across thejimmycase iPhone cases and they seem to be really rather good. They have a range specifically for the iPhone 6 and the wallet ones hold 6 cards and cash, so you don’t need to carry your wallet around. The ones I’ve been looking at are made from a genuine mahogany and have a soft but hard-wearing silicone bumper.

All of these are handmade in the USA and they’re priced rather well too. If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy S6 then they do similar ones for you.

They have a stack of colours and designs plus a 30 day no-risk guarantee. The iPhone 6 wallet cases cost just over £25 but you may be able to catch a 10% off deal that they have on right now.

To be honest I’d not heard of them before now, but if you’re after a protective and stylish case, head to thejimmycase.com and check out their individual cases.

  • Apple wants to charge $40/month for its TV subscription service; content providers demand more

    Apple TV Service Price

    With a revamped Apple TV just around the corner, Apple is laying the groundwork for what may soon be a wildly successful TV streaming business.

    With streaming services like Netflix and HBO Now more popular than ever, the writing on the wall is clear: consumers, on the whole, just aren't as interested in paying $100 a month for 150 channels. Instead, they're much happier getting less and paying less.

    With that in mind, Apple's rumored TV subscription service may truly be a market disruptor. Not to mention,  it would certainly fit Apple's time-tested m.o of coming to the party late yet still being able to turn an industry on its head.

    That was fast: Apple Watch zooms to lead in ‘smart wearables’

    apple-watch-2

    Only a few months after shipping its first wearable, Apple is now the leader in the emerging global smart wearables market and within striking distance of the overall wearables market front runner.

    Market researcher IDC released wearables market share numbers for the second quarter on Thursday and Apple, in typical fashion, is already the 800-pound gorilla in the room.

    But don’t expect a rumored subscription television service to go live anytime soon.
