On The Recently Discovered iOS “Schou” Networking Bug

Earlier this week, news broke of a strange networking issue that can permanently disable all WiFi activity on iOS devices. It’s currently known to affect iOS 14 only, and can cause quite a mess. The news was originally revealed by reverse engineer Carl Schou (via BleepingComputer (story sourced via MacTrast), and while there was originally very little information revealed about the issue or how it functions, we decided to put our research hats on and see what we could discover.

Review: Nebula Capsule Max – Bigger and Brighter, But With Some Big Tradeoffs

A while back, we took a close look at Anker’s popular Capsule – a highly portable projector in a very small package aiming to transform the pocket projector from a strict business tool into a serious multimedia device – and overall, we were quite pleased. Today, we will be taking a look at a highly updated, brighter, and more powerful model released as a successor — the Nebula Capsule Max! The Max takes the capsule in a slightly different direction with a significantly larger form factor, bigger and louder...

Review: Tovala Steam Oven – The Oven That Makes Home Cooking Easy

As an enthusiast of both kitchen-craft and technology, I am constantly tinkering with new ways of doing things in the kitchen, and new devices of all kinds to make the kitchen a more exciting place, especially devices that introduce an entirely new concept into my arsenal. As such, I wanted the first device review to launch our new segment focusing on home kitchen and cooking technology innovation to be something very clever and truly fascinating. The Tovala Steam Oven took up that mantle quite nicely. But does it live...

Apple’s Silicon Strategy: How Apple’s Custom Chips May Change Their Product Lineup

Naturally, following Apple’s WWDC announcements on June 22nd, there has been a great deal of chatter and discussion regarding the future of the Mac now that Apple is transitioning to using it’s own custom designed chips. And naturally, we may have heard a thing or two from sources who have served us well in the past (including one of the sources that gave us great information on Apple’s AirPower plans). That being said: I have an immense dislike for rumors on an existential level. The level to which rumors...

First physical leak of Apple’s new iPad Pro Mockup

We’ve obtained a final design mockup of Apple’s upcoming iPad Pro hardware from a source that has repeatedly been reliable about previous iPad hardware, showing Apple’s new camera hardware as featured on the iPhone 11 Pro gracing their upcoming refreshed lineup of iPads. The hardware is extremely similar to what is featured on the iPhone 11 Pro, and is expected to offer the same benefits to creative video professionals. The design is a nod to Apple’s intent to offer pro users of the iPad a device on which they...

Review: Anker Nebula Capsule – A Pint-Sized Pocket Projector That Packs a Punch!

Portable, nano, or pico projectors have been a rising trend in consumer tech goods over the recent years, and they can be useful in all types of situations – sharing a business PowerPoint on the fly, watching a movie in a remote location where your normal streaming box or TV can’t follow, and so forth. However, the main thing that has kept me from jumping on board is that they tend to lack versatility for streaming your personal media or accessing your favorite streaming services. Anker, makers of the...

What Really Happened to Apple’s AirPower?

For those who eagerly watched the 2017 iPhone X release event last September 12, there is somewhat of an elephant in the room that Apple has so far refused to address: the AirPower wireless charging mat that it unveiled at the event with a promise of a 2018 release date. Apple’s lack of any mention of the device since then has caused a great deal of curiosity and speculation among pundits and notable industry commentators, leaving many to wonder what happened, or whether the device will appear at all...

First iPad Air 3 Cases Leak

It’s a brand new year, which means brand new Apple Products. The iPad Air 3 is rumored to be released at the first Apple Event of the year, most likely taking place on March 15th. The first cases and schematics started to leak late last week, and the team at SonnyDickson.com decided to share our thoughts on them. As you can see, the iPad Air 3 combines the form factor of the iPad Air 2 with the features of the iPad Pro. The iPad Air 3 case shows that the same...

iPhone 6s Back Cover-Analysis and Bend Test

Last week, we gave Lew from UnboxTherapy an unreleased iPhone 6s back housing. If you missed Lew’s findings, here is a recap Just like rumors suggested, the iPhone 6s casing is slightly taller, wider and thicker. Some people suggested that this minor enhancement was to accommodate the hardware needed for Force Touch, but it actually might be more than that. The iPhone 6s casing measures 138.26mm by 67.16mm (versus the 138.09mm by 66.91mm iPhone 6), so the iPhone 6s has become slightly taller and wider. A bigger change is the...

iPhone 6s Back Housing-First Look

Today we have an exclusive look at the iPhone 6s back housing. On the outside, the 6s casing looks exactly like the iPhone 6. Like all “S” release devices, the changes are mostly internal and the iPhone 6s casing is no different. The first thing that we noticed upon inspection is that the screw mounting posts are in slightly different locations, this  most likely points to a new logic board in the 6s featuring an A9 chip. The other revision we noticed was the thickness of the metal around the...

iPhone 6s Display and Flex Cables-First Look

It’s time to take a look at some parts for the upcoming iPhone 6s. The first part that we have acquired is the display. The front of the display is almost identical to the one on the iPhone 6 except for one small detail, the front camera cutout. The camera cutout on the cover glass is slightly bigger than the one on the iPhone 6, pointing to a front facing camera upgrade this year. The major change to the display is on the back. On the upper portion of...

Leaked Case Displays iPad Pro Design

We’ve heard many rumors about Apple planning to add one more model to its current iPad lineup. This new iPad is being referred to as the “iPad Pro.” It’s expected to measure somewhere in between 12.2 to 12.9 inches, meaning it will be larger than the iPads currently available. We’ve been able to get our hands on some cases that claim to be made for Apple’s new tablet. The iPad Pro seems to resemble the current iPads with the addition of stereo speakers that are located on the top and bottom of the device. None of its...

iPhone 6 Logic Board Confirms NFC

Our friends over at Feld & Volk have provided us with some exclusive pictures of the iPhone 6’s logic board that confirm this year’s iPhone will be equipped with NFC. After two years of rumors claiming that the iPhone 5 would be equipped with NFC, the iPhone 6 will finally receive it. The photo below shows us the iPhone 6’s motherboard, equipped with chips such as the AVAGO and the Apple A8 chip which is said to be 2GHz dual-core 20nm 64-bit A8 CPU and much faster and smaller than the 1.3GHz 28nm A7 chip.

A Visual Look at Apple’s iPhone 6 vs Previous iPhones

Recently, pictures of the iPhone 6 Mockup have been circulating throughout the web. I’ve gone ahead and compared the mockup to older generations of the iPhones and the iPod Touch 5G, as well as the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5. As you can see, the iPhone 6 represents a large jump in screen size compared to previous generations. Apple has decided to ditch the sharp, angular lines of the 5 and 5s and replace them with a more friendly, curved body. The iPhone 6 is also smaller than...

2013 In Review: We Leaked our Asses Off Last Lear – Here’s the Proof!

We had a pretty great year in 2013, at least as far as Apple-related leaks are concerned.

To sum the matter up, we’ve broken down each of our leaks by category – First iPad, and then iPhone – to show you how we did. Towards the end of 2013, Apple released the iPad Air and the iPad Mini with Retina. A month before...

Hands-On With The iPhone 5C Logic Board

What we have here are leaked images of the iPhone 5C logic board. The 5C is expected to be Apple’s budget model, sporting similar specs of the iPhone 5 but in a plastic shell. The logic board is slightly smaller than the one found inside the iPhone 5, but it does line up with the screw mounting points found inside the iPhone 5c shells that we have featured on our site previously. The slightly smaller logic board might point to a slightly bigger battery. The leaked images look a lot...

High-Res Images of the iPhone 5S Fingerprint Scanners

While we’ve already seen numerous leaks of various next-gen iPhone hardware, one thing that hasn’t been seen is the home button. While a pair of pictures made the rounds earlier today, all of the images so far have been fairly poor in quality. It’s time to fix that. We’ve gotten our hands on dozens of sharp high-res images of the iPhone 5S home button hardware. Notably, the sensors and flex cable bear a remarkably different design when compared to the iPhone 5 home button – and even previous supposed 5S part...
