As Apple’s iPhone 5s rapidly nears its one-year anniversary and Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is barely three months old, you’d think the latter would have no problem eclipsing the former’s sales. Especially since not one, but two iPhone 6 models are on the horizon.
With Apple’s first foray into the fledgling wearable territory as good as confirmed, and many specifications and features nearly set in stone, all that’s left to be revealed is iWatch’s release timeline, recommended retail price and sales objectives.

Those emotions can be for anyone and everyone attempting to find parking in the great city of San Francisco.
It’s no big secret anymore that Apple iPhone 6 releases are drawing near, with large 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays and numerous hardware upgrades in the cards. But maybe you prefer portability and a compact form factor over extra screen real estate and bulkiness. Or maybe you don’t care to wait until September, possibly October, and want an iPhone now.
