Prices start at free for hardware – rising to £63.50 per month on 4G

All four UK MNOs will be offering the new Apple handsets but as a guide for readers, we’re publishing Vodafone typical contract tariffs. Vodafone has already [September 12th 2014] started taking pre-orders for the two latest Apple smartphones – the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus through its website and in stores – with Vodafone having heavily extended its own retail outlet inventory. Orders will be sent on a first come, first served basis. The iPhone 6 will be available for free on 4G Red XL and Red XXL plans on a 24 month contract. However, those tariffs offer 10GB and 20GB data and are priced at £53.50 and £58.50 respectively. Continue reading

iPhone5 cached iPhone 6 prices disappear from Apple Store

On the first day of pre-ordering these iconic handsets

Just when it would be really useful to know how much the very latest iPhone models from Apple are going to set you back [cost], it seems that Apple has temporarily pulled the information from its online Apple Store this morning [September 12th 2014]. Of course, nothing is safe once it has been published on the Net and so it was extremely easy to get the prices from the cached page which Google offers. For us Brits [UK citizens], the prices range from £539 ($877) for an entry level iPhone 6 with 16GB of storage to £789 ($1,283) for an iPhone 6 Plus with 128GB of storage. These prices are SIM free (Unlocked), of course. Continue reading

Biggest winner from the latest Apple hype is NFC

And consequently the NFC Bootcamp in New York, New York winds too

Here at GoMo Towers we’re not quite sure why Apple held out against NFC [Near Field Communication] for so long but its decision to include the technology inside the iPhone 6 will have plenty of beneficiaries. We looked around for the most obvious winner from Apple Pay and decided it must be the guys behind the NFC Bootcamp to be held in New York, New York [USA]. The NFC Bootcamp covers the latest technology, innovations and trends affecting both businesses and consumers including Apple Pay. And the best bit is that it is only a week away. Continue reading

Watch out for NFC in Apple’s product announcements

Finally to do a U-turn about a technology it didn’t invent

Until today, Cupertino-based Apple has been pretty vocal in its dismissal of NFC [Near Field Communication] as a key technology in the mobile space. GoMo News has always maintained that Apple was instead keen on pumping up its AirDrop (Wi-fi based) technology instead. Comments by Apple’s Phil Schiller have always been taken to mean that the company has on intention of incorporating it. But the rumour mill insists NFC will be inside the iPhone 6 and maybe even an iWatch. According to Ovum, Apple might complete a full U-turn and make the NFC sector its own! Continue reading

Apple fanbois will  welcome sapphire glass - ebbett Gadget insurer hoping for sapphire glass on iPhone 6

Amazing insurance claim stats from Protect Your Bubble

It will probably save specialist gadget insurer Protect Your Bubble a small fortune if the next iPhone handset released by Apple (probably called the iPhone 6 rather than 5Z), boasts a more sturdy build. Hence the insurer has its corporate fingers crossed that rumours that the iPhone 6 will feature a sapphire glass (as opposed to Gorilla Glass, it seems) screen are true. That’s because the insure has found that damage claims now make up more than six in 10 (62 per cent) of the claims the insurer receives. Just to be on the safe side the insurer commissioned a YouGov online poll. Continue reading
