iPhone X is the best selling phone in March

Whether or not we like iPhones (I do not, but I do not like anything so it is okay), we cannot deny that they are extremely popular, even despite their outlandish price and air of ”elitism” that surround them. It is not rare for Apple smartphones to break monthly, quarterly or early sale records, therefore it will not surprise anyone to learn that iPhone X was the best selling smartphone of March 2018, covering (according to Counterpoint Research) 3.5% of worldwide smartphone sales during that month. What may surprise you, though, is that no Samsung phone came second nor even ...

iPhone 8 receives iOS 11 update, fixes the unresponsive screen issue

Apple has recently released iOS 11.3.1, an update to its operating system. Among the various fixes it provides, the arguably most important one is the iPhone 8 frozen screen one. You see, a few weeks ago iOS 11.3 introduced a bug to iPhone 8 thanks to which any iPhone 8 screen that was not an official Apple product (e.g a new screen from a third-party, put in to substitute a broken original one) would become unresponsive to touch. To nobody’s surprise, this turned out to be a software issue, likely put in place to prevent iPhone owners from using third-party services. Whether or not ...

It is natural that the fruity company wants to achieve at least partial independence from its supplier-competitor – if for no other reasons than to stop helping Samsung make money and allow it to partly control prices of Apple products. To that end Apple has recently hired LG to cover part of its OLED panel needs. Unfortunately for the big A, LG simply cannot keep up with their demands; the company is reporting issues with both raw material supplies as well as not enough production lines.Does this mean that Apple will ...
