Comparison of 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 Cases

As the expected release date of Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 6 approaches, leaked photos and products continue to surface that feature a new form-factor in 4.7″ and 5.5″ sizes.

Thanks to multiple OEM manufacturers, TechZany was able to get access to various cases and parts for the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6. Although we haven’t yet seen the official housing or back casing of the iPhone 6, these cases and parts come from a very credible source in China. They’re modelled from the iPhone 6 “dummy phone” which is used in the factories for iPhone 6 prototyping. These parts and new form factors have also been confirmed within the supply chain.

It is expected that the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be available in September, following the annual hardware update schedule. However, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 will not be available until later in the year, or early-2015 due to manufacturer issues with hardware design, according to multiple sources.

The hardware mockups, dummy models, and cases that have emerged seem to follow a consistent design on the 4.7″ model. As for the 5.5″ “iPhone 6S” or “iPhone Note” (As it’s being called by some Chinese manufacturers), there is the possibility that Apple will reveal this later in the year, rather than at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference on June 2nd 2014. It may also have some unique features or technology that isn’t currently being tested nor available in the supply chain and therefore, would not be demonstrated in these preliminary case designs.

Buying a Refurbished Mac

Apple.com offers Certified Refurbished Macs, iPods, iPads, and accessories. Apple’s refurbished pricing is usually about 15% off of the regular price of the product.

The products you are getting are completely checked out and certified by Apple professionals. As with every Mac, you get a one year included AppleCare warranty with the option of purchasing additional AppleCare.

A refurbished unit is tested and certified to work as a new machine. A refurbished Mac might even be less likely to fail then a new unit as it has been worked in and manually tested by professionals.

Some people purchase Macs and then return them for no good reason. Apple can’t resell these as new so they test them, fix them up, and then sell them as refurbished. Apple does the same with overstock products and older models of Macs.

My Experiences

I recently purchased a refurbished MacBook Pro from Apple.com. I happened to get a customized model. This means someone didn’t buy one of the base models. Before they purchased, they told Apple to upgrade certain components. I was lucky enough to get one of the SSD MacBook Pros before they went out of stock. In my experience, refurbished Macs go fast because you don’t know how many are available. If you want something you see, act fast.

To be completely honest, I got a great MacBook in great, brand-new condition for about 20% off regular price. By the way, this is the current generation MBP.

I have not had any problems with my MacBook and have loved it since the second I pulled it out of the box. I have no regrets for purchasing a refurbished Apple product.

Buying a New Mac

Buying new seems reasonable if you would like the experience of original packaging or you would like a custom configuration. (ex. multiple video cards, RAM pre-installed, etc)

Refurbished From Other Retailers

I have heard some bad reviews about buying a refurbished Mac from a retailer other then Apple so be careful and be sure to look around online before making any purchases.

Conclusion

In conclusion, if you would like to save some some money, refurbished from Apple is a great no-risk purchase. If you have the extra cash and love to get a custom configured Mac, purchase brand new from Apple.

iPhone 5 Rumors

According to many sources, the next generation iPhone will be released on October 7th, 2011. In this next release of the iPhone, the new iPhone will most likely be called the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S. In this upgrade the iPhone is supposed to have a faster processor or even maybe a dual processor inside the iPhone, this generation of the iPhone will most likely have HD cameras on both the front and back of the iPhone.

This iPhone will still have the Apple Retina Display. Also with this release of the iPhone there will most likely be a more affordable version of the iPhone, maybe a iPhone mini or a pay-as-you go iPhone! Also many sources say that Apple is defiantly working on two versions of the next generation iPhone. We will just have to wait and see.As you can see Apple has came a long way since the original iPhone they release in January 7th, 2007. Maybe this iPhone will only be on Verizon Wireless network because Apple has had some problems with AT&T. We will just have to wait and see!

Bracketron

Bracketron is the industry leader in universal mounting solutions and accessories for many of today’s most popular mobile and handheld technologies, including GPS, smart phone, cell phone, MP3, satellite radio, laptop and netbook.

In 2001, when Bracketron began, their first product was the Custom Bezel Mount which was engineered for the professional installer of mobile electronics. Consumer response was very strong and pointed them in the direction of selling products aimed at consumers for home & office use.

Since then, Bracketron has broadened their product line to include a variety of flexible mounting options designed to extend the use of the device and enhance the overall user experience.

I was sent a couple Bracketron products to review and had a lot of fun testing them out. In fact, I use their products everyday. I am very glad I have them.

Bracketron puts a lot of thought into the design of their products. The products have a very nice design and are meant to work for a long time without needing to replace them.

I wouldn’t say Bracketron uses the highest quality materials to assemble their products but that only costs more money. The prices are all very affordable and worth it for what you get.

Although they don’t all carry the complete product line, you can order a lot of the Bracketron products from other retailers and distributors. Products are available around the world and can even be purchased directly from their website.

If you’re looking for a stand, mount, or bracket, for your mobile device, Bracketron has something that will suit your need.
