Despite how common Apple devices have become over the last decade, a significant fraction of the population still sees its products as status symbols. It's a perception Apple wants to maintain, apparently, judging from the latest commercial from the Bentley luxury automotive company (via The Loop). Called "Intelligent Details," the short was filmed using an iPhone 5s and edited with an iPad Air.
A sketchy rumor posted overnight to Taiwan-based Industrial and Commercial Times claims that supplier Pegatron has already received 15 percent of Apple's orders for the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone 6 ahead of a September launch. Apparently the supplier will produce something in the neighborhood of 50 million iPhones this year, which includes the current generation as well as the new model, which just so happens to pop up again in today's recap...
Just a few short years ago, this time of year would have been one of anticipation for the arrival of a new iPhone. Instead, eager buyers have to wait out the dog days of summer — or cave in to a potentially lucrative offer on a current model that's hard to resist.
The latest iPad and iPad mini models hitting the refurb counter is still big news if you're looking to pick up a tablet and hoping to save some dough, so we have some great deals to start things off in that realm.

With reports that Retina Display is in the mix for the latest round of MacBook Airs, maybe that's what you're saving up for, or maybe that is just gonna prove too pricey or you need a machine yesterday. Well, you're in luck, because we've got some sweet deals on yesterday's models and this is just the place to save some dough.
Well, Apple's future is getting close to becoming clear as the date for WWDC 2014 has finally been let loose. Looks like some tech journalists are going to be revamping any early summer vacation plans. Meanwhile, it feels like it's been so long since Microsoft had a hit that this week's news of how well Office for iPad did can't help but be a shot in the arm. Plus games, leaks, updates and new stuff all in this week's hottest news.
When it comes to high definition, former heavyweight 1080p HD is starting to look like yesterday's news as the resolution race continues to ratchet up ever-increasing numbers -- some of which are apparently now attainable from the iPhone.
We start small today and build bit by bit to the biggest Macs around, so begin with us at the tiniest of refurbs and grow. And this week is heavy on the devices, since there are so many great deals out there. There's a little something for everyone in this week's refurb round up, and with all the money you save on these slashed prices, don't forget to check out our gear deals too.
One of the knocks we hear against Apple products pretty often is that they're expensive. Sure, they aren't as inexpensive as $200 netbooks, but they're also not hastily designed, shoddily manufactured garbage you throw away in 2 years either. But there are ways to crack that price issue a little, and with this week's refurbs, we've got the week's lowest price, base models of all the flagship Macs just ripe for your wallets. iOS products tend to land a lot closer to the same market prices out there, but if you want some cheap gear for them, you've come to the right place.
