Starting at $749, the 6 Plus is also the most expensive iPhone ever produced, but it offers jetsetters, journeymen, and tried-and-true road warriors a few things that no Apple smartphone has before. After traveling around for a week with the 6 Plus, I’m confident in at least one thing: it’s a must-have for those who can’t seem to stay in one place for long.
If the topic of mobile technology happens to come up at your local water cooler, it’s unlikely that a fight will break out concerning which colleague’s phone has the most RAM. Tech specs used to be consumers' top priority; what do the numbers mean to us now, with supercomputers in our pockets?

The iPhone 6 and6 Plus are being dubbed “the biggest advancement in iPhone history”, and it appears that Apple’s referring to a lot more than the actual size of the units. Aside from growing up, what’s there to know about the new iPhone duo? And, more importantly, are they worth the upgrade?
With the debut of the iPhone 6 (and 6 Plus) came a nugget so substantial that it deserved its own introduction: Apple Pay. With this, Apple is not only proving that it’s ready to join the mobile payment movement, but that it’s ready to define it.
Make no mistake: what we’re witnessing right now is the beginning of a new Apple. The company that showed itself during the WWDC 2014 keynote is dramatically different from the Apple of years past, a company that had maintained a legendary wall around its wares, demanding that users either do things their way or go elsewhere. And if I had to guess, I’d wager that most of you reading this stand to benefit yesterday's shift.
Mophie's Space Pack for the iPhone 5/5s combines extra battery power with up to 32GB of additional storage, promising to fixing two of the phone's biggest shortcomings in one convenient package.
We know what you're thinking. Making three picks for the best smartphone of 2013 instead of crowning one ultimate winner is a total cop out.

What hasn't changed: we're enslaved to our mobile devices. What has: the field of competitors.

"Smooth and supple" may not make you think of an iPhone case. Snap out of your depraved daydream, sicko, and feast your eyes on the Apogee Folded iPhone Case ($45). That's one sweet, sweet piece of stone-oiled leather; no stitches here, just folds and tucks. Beating it up just creates a personalized patina. The case is handmade in Vancouver and fits both the iPhone 4S and 5. For this price, you should probably get it in both black and umber.
A tsunami of protective cases soon follows every major smartphone release. Some are functional, some are stylish -- but few are both, and most are forgettable. So when we were offered a trio of new cases from SYSTM to try out on an iPhone 5, we were understandably skeptical.
The holidays are here again. Time for family, friends and wondering what to do when Grandma pulls that five-stick-o-butter apple pie hot and fresh from the oven. Finding ourselves wedged between the gorging holidays with New Year's resolutions right around the corner, we've all hopefully considered some version of an
