iPhone 5c pre-orders start at midnight on September 13, 2013. Typically that means midnight Cupertino Center-of-the-Universe Time, otherwise known as Pacific Time. Whether it's earlier this year, or the same as last, iMore is going to wait up for it! That's right, we're doing a full on Mobile Nations-style Pajama Party!
2014 iPhone buyers guide: How to choose the perfect 16GB or 32GB iPhone 5c, or 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB iPhone 5s for you!
One of the biggest decisions you have to make - literally! - when it comes to buying your new iPhone is how much storage capacity you get. The way Apple's pricing works, you get double the storage for every extra $100 your spend, which isn't really as straightforward a deal as it seems. While the iPhone 5c only has 16GB and 32GB options, the iPhone 5s has a 64GB option as well. Get more capacity than you need and you'll waste some money. Get too little and you'll experience no end of frustration. So, it's really important to weigh all the options and figure out the best price/storage ratio. Here's how it works!
And to show how much we appreciate you we want to give you one more chance to enter to win a brand new iPhone 5s - technically a $500 gift certificate, which depending on your contract situation, could be way more than enough! All you have to do to enter is:

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is the sequel to Popcap's original, amazing, mega-hit, but it's also a completely new, completely different thing. It's freemium now, which means it's free to play, but it tries to encourage you to pay for extras via in-app purchase (IAP). Some people love that model. Some people hate it. We're not here to judge. We're just here to help you make the most of Plants vs. Zombies 2 no matter how you choose to play... or pay. And that means, of course, we're giving you our absolute best tips, tricks, and out-and-out cheats!
Plants vs. Zombies 2 is here! Well, sort of. It's in Australia and New Zealand only for right now, but I managed to get my hands on a copy from the Australian App Store. It may not be the finished product that Popcap unleashes on the world in general, but it's what they've given the land down-under so far, so it's fair game to take a look and see what just might be in store for the rest of us. And the answer is, more plants, more zombies, a lot more fun... and some annoying freemium crap as well. Here's the deal...
While we're all waiting for the Plants vs. Zombies 2 to show up in the iPhone and iPad App Store, the original version is still providing tons of fun, not to mention frenetic plant on zombie action! I've lost many a nights sleep playing PvZ since it launched, and I've accumulated a bunch of really handy tips, hints, and cheats. Here are my top 10!
Candy Crush is my not-so secret addiction. It has consumed my days and plagued my nights. I've been crushing so much candy over the last few months, in fact, I've managed to figure out quite a few tips, tricks, and flat out cheats that have helped me beat level after level. And it's time I shared them all with you, the iMore nation!
We're geeks. We get it. Our phones, be they Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, or Windows Phone, are among the most important things in our lives. We use them for everything, all the time. But in some situations our phones can get in the way, like on a first date. So, from one geek to another, I'm going to share ten basic tips on how to keep your smartphone from ruining a potentially great new relationship... by keeping it in your pants!
I love the Satechi Smart LED Desk Lamp. It's beautiful. It's bright. It's got easy-to-use touch controls. And what's more, it's got a handy USB port so you can plug in your 30-pin Dock or Lightning cable and charge your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad right from the lamp.
You can pivot the Satechi Smart LED Desk Lamp to several different angle, though sadly not all the way upwards. There are also several different modes, including reading mode, study mode, relaxation mode, and bedtime mode.
The I-MEGO Throne Headphones look great, but how do they sound? Watch the video above and find out and then let me know what you think -- would you use them with your iPhone or iPad?

I've been using the Loop Attachment Mummy case for iPhone 5 for a couple of months now and while it isn't as shiny or bejeweled as some of my previous case picks, it's amazingly protective and comes in very handy.
Uguard.me are resin-based skins for your iPhone and iPad that provide some protection from scratches and scrapes, but an incredible amount of grip to keep your device from falling or sliding in the first place. In fact, Uguard.me's smart resin skins will stick to many everyday surfaces, including glassy, porous ones.
I love Domeskins. They're like skins but are thicker, giving them an almost 3D look and feel. I have been using them for a week and, at first, I put them on because of the beautiful look and matching wallpaper. Almost immediately after that, I came to appreciate Domeskins for the wonderful feel and extra grip they provide for my iPhone. With Domeskins, when I place my iphone on a surface, it will stay in place and I don't have to worry as much about it sliding to its doom, or being nudged into oblivion. It just stays.

It's been just over a week now since Apple launched the iPad mini and while many of us are still waiting for our cellular iPad mini's to ship, others have had a chance to really give Apple's newest, smallest tablet a go. So what do you think?
Does the lack of Retina display bother you? Is it a deal-breaker? Do the things you do on your iPad mini make no Retina a non-issue, or a constant source of consternation? Is the smaller screen size a portability boost or a usability loss? Can you still read easily? Can you still tap easily? Does the smaller size mean you're carrying the iPad mini around a lot, in pockets or purses? Or does it just make it harder to get more serious work done?
