Apple Increases iPhone 14 Order to 95 Million Units...

Apple has revised its estimates of how popular the upcoming iPhone 14 will be. In fact, the Cupertino-based tech giant has reportedly advised its suppliers to be ready to ship an iPhone 14 order of 95 million units, a 5% increase over previous estimates. Even better, one well-connected analyst says there shouldn’t be any supply chain impacts to slow those deliveries.

Last month, Apple reportedly offered the same guidance. Cupertino believes the iPhone 14 will sell better than its iPhone 13 series.

Google Puts More Pressure on Apple to Adopt RCS with...

Google has been trying for some time to pressure Apple into adopting Rich Communication Services (RCS) on the iPhone. This pressure has even included calling out Apple executives for fostering bullying behavior. Its latest push, the “Get the Message” campaign, amps up the rhetoric for Apple to bake RCS into iPhone’s Messages app.

Calling on Apple to ‘Fix’ Texting

In June, Google used Drake’s “Texts Go Green” single to highlight the green versus blue bubble situation when Android and iOS users message each other. At the time, Google straight out said it wants the iPhone to support RCS. The tech giant pointed out this is a “problem only Apple can fix.”

At issue here is that...

Despite Keeping Things Private, Apple TV+ Continues...

It’s a good time for Apple TV+ right now: despite the company preferring to keep things private, the streaming service is continuing to show dominance in the field. Between a wealth of new content set to arrive in the following months, shows that have been with the streaming service a bit longer are really starting to make their way into the limelight.

Though Apple really enjoys keeping things a secret, the company also likes to do things their own way. For example, when the company decided to get rid of the audio jack to make iPhones smaller, seemingly everyone got up in arms (many still do to this day). For Cupertino, the company likes to keep things close to their chest, even when it comes to those working with the company.

Google Tries Publicly Shaming Apple Into Adopting RCS

Google is kicking off a new publicity campaign today to pressure Apple into adopting RCS, the cross-platform messaging protocol that's meant to be a successor to the aging SMS and MMS standards. From a report: The search giant has a new "Get The Message" website that lays out a familiar set of arguments for why Apple should support the standard, revolving around smoother messaging between iPhone and Android devices. Naturally, there's also a #GetTheMessage hashtag to really get those viral juices flowing. For most people, the problems Google describes are most familiar in the form of the green bubbles that signify messages to Android users in Apple's Messages app. While the iPhone app uses Apple's own iMessage service to send texts between iPhones (complete with modern features like encryption, support for group chats, and high-quality image and video transfers), they revert to old-fashioned SMS and MMS when texting an Android user. Not only are these messages shown in a color-...
