Picture your smartphone flying through the air in slow motion. You’ve done it again. You knew carrying that cup of coffee, your keys, your dog’s leash, your purse, your briefcase and your phone at the same time was a bad idea, but you did it anyway. As your phone lands screen-down in the gravel, you wince and say to yourself the same thing every owner of a dropped phone says to themselves: “Oh god, please…

Wondering if you read that right? Can you swap the batteries of your iPad Mini with your iPhone 5? …Well, not quite.

Endgadget reports: “As proposed, the…

Thinking of getting the latest Apple smartphone but are a little put off by its use of the iPhone 5 nano sim? Well we’ve got you covered. The nano sim is a new industry standard that was approved just last spring and yet, Apple has decided to already include it with the iPhone 5. While it does lend the iPhone 5 some form of exclusivity, problems may arise when you decide that you want to…

One of the “big” improvements shared during the recently concluded iPhone 5 launch was the adoption of a smaller dock connector that Apple has dubbed “Lightning.” Perhaps the biggest positive I saw to this change is that the Lightning connector is reversible; no more frustrating moments resulting from jamming the cable into your device the wrong. But new rumors are saying that aside from being easier to plug into your iPhone 5, the adoption of…

Since the rumor and then the news that the iPhone 5 will have a smaller 19-pin dock connecter, smaller than the current since 2003 30-pin port, people have been pissing and moaning about how they will have to buy all new stuff — cabling, cradles, iHome clock radios, etc. Why? Because A.) Apple won’t ship a 19 to 30 pin adapter and is EVIL or B.) People can be so annoyingly, well, unintelligent. Yeah, the…

Unfortunately, these iPhone 5 cases aren’t official issue but it’s interesting to know that they’re already out there.

The cases that were spotted are from TVC-Mall, based in Shenzen, China. This was first shared on Mac…

Now, we’ve got a word that Apple has just secured a patent for a “video telephonic headset” that could very well be a future accessory for your iPhone 5 and other iOS devices. Patently Apple reports that Apple was granted a patent…

Let’s face it — we’re all excited about the supposed upgrades that Apple will be introducing to the iPhone 5. We’re all expecting these upgrades to make the arguably the world’s top smartphone much more competitive in a world that’s already brimming with Android devices like the new Samsung Galaxy S3 and Google Nexus 7, as well as Windows phones (not to mention the ailing Blackberries from RIM). But change, while usually for the better,…

TPU is by far my favorite material for iPhone cases. This is because it provides the sleek look and feel of a hardshell case while providing the stellar drop protection of a standard silicone case. With all of these advantages, one thing is often overlooked with TPU cases: the design. A lot of TPU style cases tend to have less than desired designs and patterns. SGP is aiming to fix this with their Modello case…
