  • Apple Announces New iPad Air 2

    Apple Announces New iPad Air 2

    Apple took the stage this afternoon to unveil the new 6.1mm think iPad Air 2. 18% thinner than the iPad Air, this becomes the world’s thinnest tablet, with new features including an anti-reflective coating reducing reflections by 56%, a new A8X processor which is 40% faster overall, and 2.5x faster graphics. These upgrades bring enhanced performance, while Apple promises that battery life remains at up to 10 hours. Apple also kept the same price points as the previous generation of iPad Air, with the most noticeable change being that the mid-level model jumps from 32GB of storage to 64GB for the same price. More as this develops.

     
  • Apple releases iOS 8.0.1, users report major problems with update

    Apple releases iOS 8.0.1, users report major problems with update

    One week after the launch of iOS 8, Apple has already released its first update for the new OS in iOS 8.0.1, which contains a slew of bug fixes.

    But you shouldn’t hit the install button yet. Soon after the update hit, an abnormally high number of users immediately started reporting that the iOS 8.0.1 update is breaking cellular reception and other features like TouchID. For those affected, “no service” is displayed after the update has been installed, and toggling airplane mode or powering the phone off and on again doesn’t seem to be fixing it. We’ve reached out to Apple for comment on the situation.

    Yep, my TouchID isn’t working either. “@othood: TouchID seems broken too.”

  • Introducing Apple Watch

    Introducing Apple Watch

    It’s been a long time coming, but Apple’s much-rumored wearable is finally here. The new Apple Watch promises to be Apple’s biggest release since the original iPhone, offering multiple configurations and price points; and though we know what the different models will be called (Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition) and what differentiates them (the Sport will feature an aluminum encasing and scratch-resistant Ion-X glass, the standard Apple Watch gets a stainless body and Sapphire crystal, while the Edition gets an 18k gold encasing and Sapphire crystal), all we know about pricing is that they will start at $349–though you can expect the Edition to retail for much more. More tha just a simple accessory to your iPhone (the watches will be compatible with all 5 and 6 series iPhones), in addition to showing text and email notifications, the watch has a built-in mic and speaker allowing […]

     
  • New iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Let Legacy Apps Just Work

    New iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Let Legacy Apps Just Work

    Apple has officially announced the new iPhones. The iPhone 6 (featuring a 4.7″ display) measuring at just 6.9mm thin, and the iPhone 6 Plus (with a 5.5″ display) at just 7.1mm thin. The extra screen real estate brings not only better display features, but iOS has been customized to work with the larger displays adding better and clearer landscape modes. A desktop-class scaler was designed to scale up existing apps and websites to take advantage of the different size. As far as the internals, both models will see a jump to Apple’s A8 and M8 processors, not only allowing for faster and greater performance, but also improved camera performance–both the 6 and 6 Plus will now shoot 1080p video at 60 frames per second, and Slo-Mode video mode will now shoot at 240fps; overall camera performance has also improved, with Focus Pixels allowing for faster auto-focus. For those hoping for […]

    Apple’s iWatch is almost definitely coming on September 9th

    Apple’s long-awaited wearable device, often referred to as the iWatch, will debut alongside two new iPhones set to be unveiled on September 9th. That’s according to a new report from Recode, which also claims that the product will be deeply integrated with Apple’s health tracking tools — coming as part of iOS 8 — and even tap into home automation through HomeKit, another new feature of the upcoming OS software. Rumors have long pointed to Apple’s wearable putting a big focus on health, so that tidbit isn’t exactly a revelation.

    But we’ve yet to truly see what Apple hopes to accomplish when it comes to controlling electronics throughout the home with HomeKit. At WWDC, the company revealed that iPhones will be able to control garage door…
