The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple will begin production of its next iPhone during the current quarter, and that the device could launch as early as this summer. The report also says Apple will be launching a less expensive version of the iPhone, which will also launch this year.

According to a new report, Apple will launch a second-generation iPad mini with Retina display in the third quarter of this year. Earlier reports claimed the Retina iPad mini would be released this spring, but I think it’s much more believable that Apple would release it in the fall, about a year after the iPad [...]

CaptCase is one of the slimmest and most functional iPhone cases I’ve seen so far. This leather case does what many other cases don’t, it not only protects the sides and back of the iPhone, but also keeps the screen clean and safe. There’s even a pocket on the back of the case that lets [...]
