Hold off on buying Apple hardware until after Sept 9, 2015

If you’re considering and iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, hold off until Apple unveils the new versions of them in what looks like will be their special event in early September.

Sources familiar with Apple’s plans tell BuzzFeed News the company intends to hold a special event the week of Sept. 7, with Wednesday the 9th being the most likely date. Sept. 9 is the same day on which Apple held this event last year.

Why you should drop your Android and switch to iPhone

People ask me all the time about what kind of phone they should get. Almost without exception, my immediate response is “Get an iPhone” for the simple reason that unless you want to massively geek-out with your phone on a regular basis, the iPhone, simply, works.

I feel even stronger about my anti-Android feelings. iPhones don’t do anything crazy; they just work. And it is that distinction that makes them the best phones to have.

iPhone 6S features leaked

  3. Additional microphone for noise cancellation.
  4. Faster CPU & more memory
  5. Improved Touch ID
  6. Improved durability

Will you get one?

Force Touch is what will likely prove to be the key selling point of the 6S models. Having introduced it on the Apple Watch and 13-inch MacBook Pro it makes perfect sense for Apple to extend this to the iPhone (and eventually the iPad).
