If you are on the lookout for either the iPhone 6S or the iPhone 6S Plus, then here is news for you – chances are pretty high that you can pick up either one, or perhaps even both if you are feeling fat in the pocket, this coming September 18th. First of all, there was a leaked internal memo from Vodafone alongside Japanese site ITHome and German tech experts Macerkopf claiming that the new iPhones 6S models will roll out this coming September 18th in their respective countries
With Japan, Germany and the UK being tier one Apple launch countries, this means that those living in the mentioned countries will receive the iPhones at the same time as folks living over in the US – traditionally speaking, of course. There really isn’t that much time left to wait, as it is less than a month away, and I am quite sure that the time will pass by sooner than you think.
OnePlus Has iPhone 6S Case Now
Now here’s an iPhone 6S case that will certainly turn heads, especially when you take into consideration its name which is known as the OnePlus iPhone 6S case. That’s rather weird, don’t you think so? It will certainly take some getting used to before the name rolls off your tongue naturally. Well, we do know that The OnePlus iPhone 6S case can now be purchased for $19.99 a pop, and no, you do not need any kind of invite before you can snag one for yourself.
Each purchase will also be accompanied by an invitation to purchase a OnePlus X, just in case, you know, you would like to tread the Android waters. All in all, it comes in the kind of material as found on the OnePlus One and OnePlus X, which makes it a whole lot harder to lose grip of when you hold it – which is good!
iPad Air 3 Not Coming This Year According To Rumors
It looks like the folks over at Digitimes have come up with their own interpretation of things to come – that there will be no iPad Air 3 released, at least for this year. Digitimes has had their fair share of hits and misses in the past, so it would be best to take this rumor concerning the non-release of the iPad Air 3 in 2015 with a pinch of salt.
Digitimes also laid claim that the iPad mini 4 will not be as supercharged as some of the rumors that had been going around, as it will bring with it only small and incremental upgrades when compared to its predecessor, the iPad mini 3. This does not seem to bode well for fans of the compact tablet, taking into consideration how the iPad mini 3 itself was improved over its predecessor with a new Touch ID fingerprint reader.
Since Apple tends to roll out a new iPad in October, we will just have to sit tight and see whether this particular rumor has enough “legs” to run.
Man Fined For Using Apple Watch While Driving
It goes without saying that if you were to be driving, you would do well to concentrate a whole lot on the road ahead of you, which means that using a mobile device like a tablet or smartphone is strongly discouraged. In fact, in most places, doing so would be illegal, but what of smartwatches? After all, it is only a matter of time before the smartwatch makes its presence known in everyday life, but it has also resulted in a Canadian driver to be fined $120 by a passing cop, for the simple fact that he was using the Apple Watch while driving.
Jeffrey Macesin claimed that he was pulled over by Quebec police as he was skipping songs on his Apple Watch. The Apple Watch was no doubt hooked up to the iPhone, and the smartphone itself remained in his bag, but all of those circumstances failed to exempt him from a $120 fine due to violating section 439.1 of the Quebec Highway Safety Code.
That particular code did state that “no person may, while driving a road vehicle, use a handheld device that includes a telephone function”, and hence the great debate begins – even if the Apple Watch has the ability to make and receive calls as long as it remains hooked up to an iPhone, it cannot be classified as a handheld device. This is where Macesin intends to come from as he contests the $120 fine.
