    A few million people got an iPhone 5 this morning.

    We're betting some of you are looking to unlock it - whether for resale value down the road, or to use a foreign SIM in the iPhone already (good luck though - your carrier will need a compatible nano-SIM).

    There's an abundance of sites offering unlocks. Some are legit, some are scams. We have used various ones in the past, and thought we'd share a couple we recommend now since iPhone 5 support has just been added (note - these services unlock other iPhones as well - 3G, 3G[S], 4, 4S).

    Neither of these services require a ...

    According to a quickly-produced survey from Piper Jaffray analyst and resident Apple watcher Gene Munster, lines outside of Apple stores on the day of the iPhone 5 launch are about 83% longer than the lines observed at the launch of Apple's iPhone 4S.

    Of course, such lines are to be anticipated in response to Monday's news that Apple sold two million iPhone 5s last weekend. That was twice ...

    With the iPhone 5 now reaching customers on the first day of availability, the New York Police Department has a large presence today at Apple's retail locations in New York for the purpose of helping new iPhone 5 owners register their freshly-purchased device.

    The goal, naturally, is to help cut down on iPhone 5 theft. Dubbed the "Anti-Apple Picking Campaign," the NYPD is enthusiastically backing this free service ...

    There are lots of custom iPhone companies (you know - glowing light mods, wooden backs, crazy colors) out there, but iFixDirect has been our favorite for a while. We chatted with Mike from iFixDirect recently, and he sent us some examples of the custom work they're doing. It's good stuff!

    We've checked out some of their work (like their iPhone color kits) in the past, and thought we'd highlight some of their custom mods.

    NOTE: While we checked out their iPhone 4S mods, they've got a great selection of stuff ready for iPhone 5 as well!

    Only a few hours have passed since Apple’s iPhone 5 launched in Australia and iFixit has already nearly finished their teardown of the iPhone 5.

    The iDevice tear down experts have already declared the iPhone 5 much easier to take apart than the iPhone 4S.



    The familiar pentalobe screws are still present, and all the expected fixins including a larger battery, A6 processor, Qualcom LTE chip are present. ...

    Apple has moved beyond Google Maps in iOS 6, bringing with it their own implementation of maps with service provided by TomTom. Some users aren’t completely sold on the new Maps application yet. The new Maps application includes new features such as turn-by-turn navigation and Flyover view, but it seems some people just miss having Google Maps on their iOS devices.

    The iPhone community is excited to get the iPhone 5 in their hands, but it is still a large problem that 4G LTE won’t be available everywhere, as it is one of the iPhone 5’s most exciting new features. Good news for some extra cities today is that AT&T and Verizon appear to have expanded their 4G LTE networks just before tomorrow’s official launch of the iPhone 5.

    Samsung recently aired a new commercial where it continues to promote its “The next big thing is already here” message referring to the Samsung Galaxy S III handset. In the latest commercial, customers are shown waiting in line for what is presumably meant to be Apple’s iPhone 5 (although the product is never mentioned by name). You can watch the video below:

    Apple products and removable batteries have a hate-hate relationship. Apple hates them, and we hate that they don’t have them.

    Which makes Apple’s latest patent just that much more insane: A patent for a universal battery system. Patent #8,269,453 “Battery Charging System for Mobile and Accessory Device,” details a system where universal removable battery packs can be used to power devices ...

    Apple’s iOS 6 release didn’t came and went with a few minor hiccups, most notably an embarrassingly simple Wi-Fi snafu.

    The problem stems from the way mobile Safari handles network verification. In order to connect to a Wi-Fi network through Safari the browser loads a special page, which apparently went down earlier today.



    The issue plagued iPad and iPhone users alike, ...
