Welcome back to another fine edition of the Daily Read. Have you had your fill of  iPhone reviews, news, and updates? Well it’s not over yet! Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with too much. 

Apple will no longer unlock most iPhones, iPads for police, even with search warrants


“Apple said Wednesday night that it is making it impossible for the company to turn over data from most iPhones or iPads to police — even when they have a search warrant — taking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user information.”

Once your car’s connected to the Internet, who guards your privacy?


“Once mobile devices are connected to car infotainment systems and cars are connected to the Internet, vehicles will become a rich source of data for manufacturers, marketers, insurance providers and the government. Oh, and they’ll be a lucrative target for hackers, too.”

How much does an iPhone 6 really cost? (Hint: It’s way more than $199)


“To paraphrase Mark Twain: There are lies, damned lies, and smartphone prices. Every review I’ve read of the new iPhone 6 this week says the price starts at $199. That’s not true. The total prices that buyers pay for smartphones on two-year contracts from American carriers will shock you.”

Amazon and Apple Just Made Buying Digital Media a Lot More Attractive

“It’s Like an iPad!” Real People — Not Tech Reviewers — Hold iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.


“Even people who like big phones were surprised by the large size of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. I stood two blocks from the White House in downtown Washington, D.C., and asked people to give me their first impressions after holding Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Most men liked the size of the 6 Plus, which may be a case of Big Truck Syndrome. Women thought the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 was just right — or even too big, compared to their current phones.”
