Poll: Would you buy a blue, pink or yellow iPhone 5S?
A report issued by Topeka Capital Markets on Wednesday morning suggested that Apple (AAPL) has some big changes in store for the next-generation iPhone. According to analyst Brian White, the “iPhone 5S” will be available with two different screen sizes to help Apple better address emerging markets, marking the first time Apple offers a single smartphone model with multiple screen size options. In another first for Apple, White reports that the next iPhone will be available in three new colors — blue, pink and yellow — on top of black and white, which are both currently available. Apple’s most recent iPod touch is available with multiple color options and the new case on the iPhone 5 is aluminum, so it could certainly be anodized — but are consumers interested in different color options for the iPhone? Vote in the poll below and let us know if different iPhone colors would appeal to you.
Apple says ‘Do Not Disturb’ bug in iOS 6 will persist until next week
Apple (AAPL) has acknowledged a bug with the “Do Not Disturb” feature in iOS 6 and has said that the issue will persist until it is fixed automatically on January 7th. In a support article posted to Apple’s website on Wednesday, the company acknowledged a bug that causes “Do Not Disturb” mode to remain enabled each day past the time it is configured to switch off. The bug reportedly began affecting iOS 6 devices on January 1st. In addressing the issue, Apple confirmed that the bug exists for some users and indicated that it has no plans to fix the problem. Instead, the bug will correct itself next week. “Do Not Disturb scheduling feature will resume normal functionality after January 7, 2013,” Apple said in the support article. “Before this date, you should manually turn the Do Not Disturb feature on or off.”
