iPhone Sales up 28% This Quarter

iPhone sales are booming

I don't think anyone will be surprised by the fact that iPhone sales were up significantly. CNN reports Morgan Stanley said iPhone sales were up 28% this quarter. Taking into consideration that when the latest statistics were released the iPhone 5C and just hit pre-order, the increase is impressive.

Morgan Stanley analyst Katie Huberty says that the data suggests Apple sold 34.5 million iPhones in fiscal Q4. That would indicate an 11% increase in sales compared to a forecast of 31 million units. Apple sold 26.9 million iPhones in the same quarter of last year.

Apple's biggest competitor Samsung is believed to have sold 45 million smartphones during the same quarter. Granted, the new iPhones had only been available for a very short time before the statistics were published and Apple buyers traditionally stay away from aging models ahead of the launch of a new model. I bet Apple is on top next quarter.

How to avoid deleting messages when swiping your iPad too briskly

Oct 31 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Mac World

Reader Nancy Hilton has an iOS issue that she’d like me to take a swipe at. She writes: I upgraded my iPad mini to iOS 8, and suddenly an accidental left swipe mysteriously wipes out an email message. A gentle left-swipe displays More, Flag, and Trash options, but a quicker swipe produces a brief narrow red line, and poof! the message is gone into cyberspace. Can you help? I can. As you’ve rightly deduced, this is a behavi ...

A Virginia District Court has ruled that while phone passcodes are protected by the 5th Amendment, which says that those accused of crimes cannot be compelled to incriminate themselves, there is no such protection agains ...

Apple added its own spin on “Okay, Google” with iOS 8, allowing iOS device owners to call on our favorite virtual assistant using a simple “Hey, Siri” voice command. The only problem is that users need to have their iOS device connected to a power source in order for the feature to work – that is, until now. Created by Hamza Sood, a new jailbreak tweak called UntetheredHeySiri indeed allows jailbroken iOS device owners to call on Siri i ...

Oct 31 2014 5:44am CDT | Source: Mac World

Apple Pay’s eventful early days were full of highs and lows. Excited iPhone users rushed to test the mobile payment service on day one and found it super seamless. Cashier confusion, Bank of America’s double-charging foul-up, and the NFC block at Rite Aid and CVS marred the rollout, but a major product launch is never smooth. And who knew CurrentC, a QR code-based app that isn’t even on the market yet, would turn into such a huge thing?To read this article in full ...
