    Apple’s iOS 8.1 update is waiting for you to download it

    Well, it’s Monday, and that can only mean one thing: Apple’s iOS 8.1 update has finally gone live for your installing pleasure. To recap, the new software — which is debuting just over a month since iOS 8 first hit — brings back once-trashed…

     
  • 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.”

    Apple revamps iTunes Extras, adding it to Apple TV now and iOS 8 in the fall

    Apple’s iTunes Extras feature has always been extremely limited, but that’s just changed. Previously, only desktop users of iTunes could view extras that came with movies purchased from Apple, things like production stills and deleted scenes. Now, as part of iTunes 11.3 — which went out today — along with a push to Apple TV users running the 6.2 version of the software (which was released last week), iTunes Extras will show up alongside any purchased HD films. Apple is also opening it up for movie studios to add additional content at any time, and for free.

  • Apple and Samsung reportedly enter talks to settle patent disputes

    Apple and Samsung reportedly enter talks to settle patent disputes

    Apple and Samsung are once again holding talks to settle their patent disputes, and this time they’re both said to be focused on dismissing lawsuits and seeing their issues settled out of court, according to The Korea Times. The two companies have intermittently entered these discussions — some voluntarily, others court ordered — for years now, but with the companies’ second big court battle over and success on both sides waning, it’s looking increasingly likely that Apple could finally be interested in cutting a deal.

  • Eight things you should know about the next iPhone

    Eight things you should know about the next iPhone

    For a company famed for its tight-lipped secrecy, Apple’s flagship products have a surprisingly strong track record for leaking essentially in their entirety. The Wall Street Journal has a long-standing history of pre-event leaks, 9to5Mac is remarkably well-sourced, and everyone from suppliers to Best Buy employees provide a steady stream of just-plausible-enough rumors leaking out over the months running up to the launch of a new device. From the iPhone 5S to the iPad Air, few Apple devices…

    Apple Streaming Today’s Media Event

    Oh Apple, how you tease. Waiting until the last minute to tip its hand, Apple has confirmed that they will be streaming today’s (what we assume to be iPad-centric) media even; the event can be viewed online (using OS X 10.6 or later), over iOS devices (using iOS 4.2 or later), and through Apple TV using the “Apple Events” channel (which has reappeared just in time for the event). Can’t watch the live stream? Fear not–we’ll have all of the Apple news you can handle as it happens starting at 1pm Eastern. See you then!
