    The Indian government has announced that all iPhones sold in the country from January 1, 2017 should come with a panic button that will allow anyone in need the ability to contact authorities with a single key. Built-in GPS is also a mandatory feature in phones going on sale next year, but that's already a mainstay on the iPhone. The move comes after the government has instituted a single "112" number for emergencies, including police services, ambulances, and the fire department. For smartphones that cannot accommodate dedicated buttons — such as the iPhone — manufacturers will have to incorporate a mechanism through which users will be able to contact authorities by pressing the power button thrice in quick succession: Smartphones without the facility of emergency call button by pressing the same for long time to invoke emergency call or the use of existing power on or off button, when short pressed thrice in quick succession. The feature phones without the facility ...

    During Apple's Q2 2016 earnings call, Tim Cook offered details on the vendor's performance in the Indian market, stating that iPhone sales were up by 56% from a year ago. Apple sold over 800,000 iPhones in the country in Q4 2015, which was largely driven by the introduction of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus in the market and aggressive discounts on the part of retailers. Tim Cook talked about the emergence of 4G networks in the country, which he said will "unleash the power and capability of the iPhone:" And then on emerging markets, if you look at India we grew by 56 percent, and we're placing increasing emphasis in such areas where it's clear there will be disproportionate growth versus the more developed areas. And from an India point of view, if you look at India—and each country has a different story, a bit—the things that have held not only us back, perhaps, but some others as well, is that the LTE roll-out with India just really begins this year. And so we'll begin to...

    Want to break free from upfront fees and network subsidies? Welcome to the world of unlocked. When it's time to buy a new iPhone, most of us turn to the four major UK network operators, or one of the many smaller networks that piggyback on them. But with the arrival of more affordable models like iPhone SE — as well as the continuing urge to upgrade to the latest and greatest — you may have been considering the alternative: simply buying an unlocked iPhone and popping in your current SIM card. Unlike many other parts of the world, buying a new, unlocked smartphone isn't a new concept for British consumers. But if you're thinking of taking the plunge, there are a few factors worth considering: Here's a quick primer on buying an unlocked iPhone in the UK. Why go unlocked? First, a few obvious advantages.

    TIME Magazine has published its list of the 50 most influential gadgets of all time, and the iPhone tops the list. The magazine praised the original iPhone for its role in changing the way people approach computing and interacting with information. From TIME: Apple's device ushered in a new era of flat, touchscreen phones with buttons that appeared on screen as you needed them, replacing the chunkier phones with slide-out keyboards and static buttons. What really made the iPhone so remarkable, however, was its software and mobile app store, introduced later. The iPhone popularized the mobile app, forever changing how we communicate, play games, shop, work, and complete many everyday tasks. The iPhone is joined on the list by items like Sony's Walkman and the IBM Selectric typewriter, as well as other Apple products, including the iPod and original Macintosh. Time MagazineIphoneNews...

    Can you get a used iPhone directly from Apple? There is no question that you can save scads of money if you buy a used iPhone as opposed to a new one. If you're thinking about going to an Apple Store to get one, however, you're out of luck — Apple does not sell used devices. Don't worry, though, there are a number of reputable used iPhone dealers around that you can shop with safely! New vs. used Buy from reputable sellers only Reputable used iPhone dealers New vs. used There are several reasons why you might prefer to get a used iPhone over a new one. The big one is price. New iPhones come at a premium and, with wireless carriers moving to shorter contracts, getting a new iPhone can be very expensive. Used iPhones, on the other hand, are priced much more affordably—sometimes hundreds of dollars cheaper than their new counterparts. They are previously owned, though, which means there are some things you'll need to pay attention to. Buy from reputable sellers only Whe...

From the First Post report: "The meeting which took place at Mukesh Ambani's residence lasted more than two hours where Reliance executives pitched on how Apple can play a big role in Jio's growth.

    Apple has been trying for some time now to sell refurbished iPhones in India, with the company facing opposition from the government. Tim Cook made his way to the country last week to make his case for the program, but the government announced today that it has summarily rejected the proposal. At a press conference, commerce and industry minister Nirmala Sitharaman said: We are not in favour of any company selling used phones in the company, however certified they may be. The government has also rejected the manufacturer's bid to be exempt from the mandatory local sourcing norms, after it initially looked like Apple would be given the go-ahead. It looks like wires were crossed between the finance and commerce ministries, as Sitharaman said that she will be discussing the matter: We took a line that we would not mind waiving the 30% local sourcing norm for Apple. Now, the finance ministry has taken a different position. We will examine the matter in consultation with the ...

It seemed almost karmic, Lenovo's latest phone being unveiled in San Francisco — just days before Apple kicked off its week-long WWDC festivities. I was lucky enough to attend both, and in doing so, talk to a lot of people about the state of Apple hardware and software and how it compares to the best of Android these days. Much of that narrative centered, with no lack of passion, around the lack of a headphone jack in Lenovo's Moto Z handset. I got to hold the phone in my hand, and it actually took me a considerable amount of time to identify the omission, so accustomed am I...

    One French TV show had a novel way to keep going after a power outage kept its cameras from working. On n'est pas Couché (We Are Not Asleep) suffered an outage, and while emergency lights turned on, the crew had to resort to using iPhones in order to record the episode. The show was filmed on a combination of iPhone models, but iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s models seem to be most prominent. You can watch the video the crew captured using iPhones below. From Pure Médias (translated from French, via 9to5Mac): Electricity has finally returned after several hours but not enough to restart all engines, lights and technical equipment necessary for the proper filming of the show. Laurent Ruquier therefore continued interviews filmed ... the iPhone to its employees, as seen on this shared image by Nathalie André France 2 on Facebook. This was apparently the first time that a broadcast program was shot on an iPhone in France, something that has become a frequent occurrence in other cou...

    According to a report on DoDBuzz, the U.S. Army's Special Operations Command is switching from using Android phones to the iPhone 6s in the field. Soldiers are currently equipped with the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAC), which will soon be replaced by the iPhone Tactical Assault Kit, according to a source "not authorized to speak to the media." From the publication: The iPhone is "faster; smoother. Android freezes up" and has to be restarted too often, the source said. The problem with the Android is particularly noticeable when viewing live feed from an unmanned aerial system such as Instant Eye, the source said. When trying to run a split screen showing the route and UAS feed, the Android smart phone will freeze up and fail to refresh properly and often have to be restarted, a process that wastes valuable minutes, the source said. "It's seamless on the iPhone," according to the source. "The graphics are clear, unbelievable." The ATAC system consists of a Samsun...

    Apple has announced that it has now sold one billion iPhones in the lifetime of the product. The company announced the milestone at a company meeting on Wednesday morning. From Apple: "iPhone has become one of the most important, world-changing and successful products in history.
