    With the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus already underway in several countries, many companies have begun performing tests and benchmarks on the device. PhoneBuff has taken the two devices and put them through a drop test, dropping each on its back, side and front. The iPhone 6 did well when dropped on the side and back, but unsurprisingly suffered when dropped on its face. The 6 Plus, on the other hand, cracked when it landed on the side. However, it sustained little further damage when falling on its face. Based on this one test, both phones may have performed worse than the iPhone…

    In case you’ve been hiding in a Faraday cage without Internet access for the past 24 hours or more, you probably already know that iOS 8 has been released into the wild for all of us to download in all of its glory. Even though it’s somewhat of an overstatement that this update is what Apple calls “the biggest release since the launch of the App Store,” there’s still a lot going on in iOS 8 and most of it is pretty great. Just like anything else though, there’s some bad to go along with it. Overall though, iOS 8 seems to have trimmed the fat from iOS 7 and made it sleeker and more…

The biggest discovery is the confirmation that the iPhone 6 Plus, a 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6, uses a 2915mAh battery -- twice the capacity of the one found in the iPhone 5s -- to power the larger screen and yet provide better runtime life....

Since Apple’s never made a phone with a screen larger than 4 inches, dedicated fans might not have even handled a huge-screened monster phone like the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. How do you know which is the right size for you?

    Months after redesigning your web profile pages, Twitter has a new look for profiles in iOS. It’s major, at least according to Twitter. Twitter's iOS 8 update gives profiles a makeover. Except the new look isn’t really that major. Twitter’s update for iOS 8 on Thursday basically replicates the image-heavy web profiles that it introduced in April. That profile makeover drew some (OK, many) comparisons to Facebook’s Timeline. But as far as iOS apps go, your Facebook and Twitter profiles look nothing alike.

    Yes, I went for the low-hanging fruit with the review title. Let's just try to move past that and get to the game I want to tell you about today, Kapsula [$1.99]. This is a pretty unusual game. If it wasn't so utterly out there with its theme, I'd almost think it was the product of some bizarre marketing meeting. This is basically a lane-based endless runner mixed with a match-3 puzzle game, and I'll let you try to hash out how that might work for a second before I spoil it all for you. Okay, so it's a futuristic racer that takes place in a dystopian future Soviet Russia. You drive your car…

    RPG Maker is a software solution that's been around for decades, and unsurprisingly, its purpose is to make it easy for game designers to create role-playing games. This week, it was announced that the first official mobile port of an RPG Maker game is coming on October 3rd. The game is called Undefeated, and although I don't follow the RPG Maker scene or really RPGs in general, it seems to be considered one of the better RPG Maker games around. Check out the trailer. While I don't intently follow the RPG Maker scene, one thing I have noticed is that almost all the games made with that…

    It's something that mobile gamers probably overlook more often than we should, but audio can add tremendously to the experience you get from a game. From the throaty growling threats of Sinistar to the playful jingle that plays when you die in Super Mario Bros. to the unsettling atmosphere of Bioshock, video games have always used sound to subtly manipulate the emotional state of the player. Unfortunately, the very nature of how and where most handheld games are played means a lot of us rarely hear the games that engage us so well. You're going to have to trust me on one thing, though, and…

  • iCloud for Windows update means PCs can use iCloud Drive before Macs can

    18 Sep 2014 | 8:44 am
    iCloud Drive is now available on Windows, but not OS X. Andrew Cunningham Apple officially released iCloud Drive yesterday as part of the iOS 8 update, but it came with a caveat: turning it on disables the "old" way of iCloud syncing, but OS X doesn't yet support iCloud Drive and won't until OS X Yosemite is released later this fall. If you use iCloud to sync application data between your phone, tablet, and desktop, this means you'll need to keep living with the more limited version of iCloud until Yosemite is out (or roll the dice and give the Public Beta a try). If you're a Windows user…

    Tim Cook unveils iOS 8 at WWDC 2014. Megan Geuss Apple has updated its privacy policy as part of the rollout of iOS 8, announcing that devices with the latest version of the operating system installed can no longer be accessed by the company itself. Previously, as we reported in May 2014, if law enforcement came to Apple with a seized device and a valid warrant, it was able to access a substantial portion of the data already on an iPad or iPhone. But under the latest version of iOS, even that will be impossible. "On devices running iOS 8, your personal data such as photos, messages (including…

Note the glassy button and its blue glow. 27 more images in gallery The Apple TV's interface is only vaguely similar to the one on your iPhone or iPad, but inside the set-top box is the same hardware and software that runs the rest of the iDevices. Alongside iOS 8, Apple today introduced "Apple TV Software version 7.0," a fancy name for "the Apple TV's version of iOS 8." The Apple TV's software was never as skeuomorphic and texture-soaked as iOS 6 was on the iPhone and iPad, but the old interface still used thicker fonts and glassy buttons. The…

    HealthKit may record a lot of data, but until third party apps can access it, it will sit lazily on a figurative couch. Andrew Cunningham On Wednesday morning, apps designed to connect to the new iOS HealthKit framework were set to launch alongside the brand new iOS 8, but those apps, hungry for your data about calories and fitness progress, apparently hadn't laced their jogging shoes. Shortly after the new version of iOS launched, developers learned that their HealthKit-ready apps and updates had been pulled from the App Store. A few developers, including the creator of Carrot Fit,…

  • Apple to Create 13 inch iPad

    kdollar
    26 Aug 2014 | 6:20 pm
    Bloomberg has reported that Apple is set to launch a 13 inch iPad in the first quarter of 2015. This is a departure for them, the initial Pad had a 9.7 inch screen. Two years later, Apple released the iPad mini with a 7.9 inch screen but was quickly a favorite among Apple enthusiasts. With Apple’s tablet sales slowing, this could be a big boost for Apple. Offering 3 sizes would allow them to expand the market and hopefully turn the tide for iPad sales. Share This

    So you just purchased a new iPad, and you are excited to try out the new Retina display. So what do you do? Open up your Netflix app, browse some nifty high-resolution artwork, click play and – what?! You’re looking at the same standard-definition video. So what’s up? Well, it seems Netflix is taking their sweet time in allowing HD streaming on the new iPad. So, in the mean time, they updated their artwork to appear nice and crisp, but left streaming untouched. Netflix tweeted that HD streaming is “on the way.” Netflix is already streaming 1080p content to the new Apple TV’s, but…
  • Where’s the “3″ in the new iPad?

    Steven Tweedie
    13 Mar 2012 | 11:30 pm
    So the new iPad isn’t called the “iPad 3” or “iPad HD”, what’s the big deal? Apple obviously had their reasons for severing the number from the name, but their timing is peculiar. Why make the decision with the third generation iPad when the iPhone is currently at iPhone 4S? The first possible answer is simple. Right now, Apple is releasing a new iPad each year, and at this rate, we would be at the iPad 6 in just three years. At that point, it’s getting a little excessive. According to Apple, the new iPad is breaking pre-order records already, and is on par to see…

    March 7th saw the announcement of Apple’s newest iPad, named simply “New iPad”. A departure from tradition, this marks Apple’s decision to discontinue a numerical model, instead focusing on refreshing the model on an assumed yearly basis. This is similar to the iPod line, where instead of numbers, the generation or year is used. Speculation has started that Apple may decide to introdudce this naming scheme for their newest iPhone. But enough on the name, what was all the hype about? The New iPad’s most striking feature is its Retina display, a crystal-clear 2048…

    Jason Snell, writing at his new website, Six Colors: When Apple announced the iPhone 6 Plus on Sept. 9, I entertained the idea that it might be a replacement for my iPad mini. At last, the promise of a single device small enough to fit in my pocket, but big enough to satisfy my productivity needs. Then I used the iPhone 6 Plus. And while it will have its fans—in fact, I’ll wager that the iPhone 6 Plus will have rabid fans—it’s just not for me, because I wasn’t seeking a bigger iPhone. I was seeking an iPad nano, and that’s not something the iPhone 6 Plus is…

    In an update released today, Twitter has introduced redesigned profiles in its iPhone app as well as interactive notifications for users on iOS 8. Profiles have been refreshed with a focus on bio and on making it easier to switch between tweets, photos, and favorites. The change is interesting, as photos and favorites used to be available in a scrollable strip and a tab, respectively; now, Twitter is promoting them to more prominent timelines. You'll be able to switch between these three sections through tabs at the top of a profile, which "snap" to the upper part of the screen as you scroll…

    Data security has been one of the biggest issues in the past years, especially with all the information about the government spying on people via tech and requisitioning obtaining user data from companies such as Apple, Google, and Facebook. Source With the latest iOS update, Apple promises to keep user data secure and out of the government’s hands – even if the police come knocking on their door with a warrant. How is this possible?

Even though it’s somewhat of an overstatement that this update is what Apple calls “the biggest release since the launch of the App Store,” there’s still a lot going on in iOS 8 and most of it is pretty great. Just like anything else though, there’s some bad to go along with it. Overall though, iOS 8 seems to have trimmed the fat from iOS 7 and made it sleeker and more…

    It’s common to walk down almost any street in a country like the United States and see more than one iPhone. Whether it’s used for simple phone calls or checking Twitter, the iPhone is the definition of pervasive technology in developed countries. While this is true for nations like the United States and many European countries, emerging markets like Brazil, Russia, India and China are just starting to have the characteristics of a fully developed market, which means there can be quite the disparity between classes. This, in turn, makes the standard pricing and features found on the…

    It’s a step in the right direction. Or at least a step to make the iCloud user base feel more secure. Per AppleInsider, Apple on Tuesday activated two-factor authentication for iCloud.com access, allowing only basic access to Find My iPhone for those opted-in to the security layer. The authentication system now requires users to enter a dynamically generated code sent to a trusted device prior to gaining access to the service. Apple first tested the extra layer of iCloud.com security in June, more than one year following the protocol’s introduction for Apple ID accounts in 2013.

    18 Sep 2014 | 3:33 pm
    This piece by Joshua Brustein for Businessweek — “Hey, Android Users, Don’t Buy the New iPhones” — is profoundly shallow: For a Galaxy Note user, then, going over to the iPhone 6 Plus means building up again from zero. And for what? Apple’s operating system may be more intuitive to someone who has never touched a smartphone before, but it’s not going to be any easier for people who have spent over an hour staring at their Android phone every day for the last two to four years. Any benefits are probably outweighed by the drawbacks to abandoning the investment…

    Dave Wiskus: There are a number of technical details that Brent can clarify, but the bottom line is that UITextView on iOS 7 had a number of significant technical problems. iOS 8 brings fixes for most of them, which allowed us to work around the rest fairly reliably. If you find any lingering problems, please let us know. Also, while not technically a feature, we did use 2.004 as an opportunity to provide support for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. When you get your new phone, Vesper should look great. First thing I did with my iPhone 6 review units was install Vesper, and I can testify…

    It's after 8 am Eastern time in the United States, and that means that retail sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have now started on the eastern seaboard at Apple Stores and various other locations. That means the people sitting or standing in the long lines at some locations that began as early as 19 days ago are now finally getting served with Apple's latest smartphone. The sales will continue at 8 am in each US time zone so you folks on the west coast still have a couple of hours left to wait before you can get your iPhone 6.

    On Thursday night, iFixit tore down the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus and now the same team has put the same treatment to its smaller brother, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 Plus was discovered to have a huge 2915 mAh battery inside. The smaller iPhone 6 naturally has a smaller power storage unit, at 1810 mAh, but it's still much bigger than the 1560 mAh battery found on the 4-inch iPhone 5s. The battery also seems to be slightly confused about its energy rating. On one side it says 6.91 Wh but the other side says it had a 7.01 Wh rating.

I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it.

Now that iOS 8's out, a lot of developers who build apps for Apple's platforms will likely give Swift a more intensive look. While Apple boasts that Swift makes programming easy, it'll take some time to learn how the language works. A new walkthrough by developer David Bolton shows how to build a very simple app in Swift, complete with project files (hosted on SourceForge) so you can follow along.

If an able-bodied person’s computer breaks down they can borrow and use another computer, but if a piece of assistive technology breaks down there probably isn’t a spare one available to borrow. Everything fails eventually! So the question isn’t “if”, but “when” it will happen.

    iOS 8 on the iPad 2 The iPad that just won’t die: Back in 2011, Steve Jobs took to the stage to announce the iPad 2. Few would have imagined that over 3 and a half years later, it would still be relevant. Almost no one would have guessed it would have had a shelf life of 3 years. Arguably, the iPad 2 was the first tablet to really define the market expectations. When it was introduced, it didn’t really have one ground breaking feature specifically. Sure it was thinner, lighter, faster and had two Cameras. It was the combination of these features that combined to make a great iPad…

There were also glimpses and references to an Apple of the past; an image of the original mouse, a picture of the first iPhone, and of course a performance from U2. Of that history, 2007 springs to mind. When doing the rumour roundups ahead of Tuesday’s event I was…

    Apple CEO, Tim Cook shows his Nike Fuelband at D11 As the age old saying goes, there is no smoke without fire—and my eyes sting because it’s really, really smoky round these parts. The last couple of months have reminded me of the lead up to January 2007, and maybe even more early 2010. The Apple rumour game, and arguably the world of technology were very different back then though. As I sat on the concrete floor outside a conference centre in San Francisco on a frigid January morning in 2007 I remember discussing what Steve Jobs would get up on stage and announce later that day, Digg…

    Christopher Meinck
    18 Sep 2014 | 8:35 pm
    Regardless of which iPhone 6 you’ve bought, it’s going to be a big time upgrade from your old iPhone with its dainty, but cute 4-inch or less screen. These phones have massive displays, which should provide for a more immersive experience. This being the year where Apple has made major changes to the iPhone, some case makers are a bit behind, so your favorite case manufacturer may not have cases available on day one, when you first crack the plastic and unbox your new phone. While you wait for a Speck CandyShell, LifeProof, (insert your favorite case), you may be inclined to tempt…

    18 Sep 2014 | 9:23 am
    The release of any major update to an operating system can be jarring and iOS 8 is no different. While it’s certainly doesn’t possess the polarizing aspects associated with the move from iOS 6 to iOS 7, there are instances where changes aren’t always welcome. One such change appears to be the new Photos app. It has folks asking, “where did camera roll and Photo Stream go in iOS 8?” We’ll cover the changes and provide a few less than ideal workarounds.

    iOS 8 is out and many folks are rushing to download Apple’s last software release of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It’s caused Apple servers to slow to grind, something which should speed up over time. A number of users are attempting to upgrade to iOS 8, only to be informed that they do not have sufficient storage space to complete the upgrade. When people purchase new iPhones, storage concerns usually revolve around how many apps, how much music, video and documents you plan to carry with you.

    Last night, as is the yearly ritual, the embargo broke on reviews of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you’ve pre-ordered a new iPhone or on the fence, I highly recommend you read some of the great work done by each of these authors. This isn’t the first year that Apple has released two iPhones. But last year was entirely different, with the unapologetically plastic iPhone 5c and the flagship iPhone 5s. They were distinct, different and had different audiences. This year, we get two polarizing models, both flagships. It may be the first time a major manufacturer has released two…

  • iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Get Cracked in First Drop Test

    Husain Sumra
    18 Sep 2014 | 9:08 pm
    With the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus already underway in several countries, many companies have begun performing tests and benchmarks on the device. PhoneBuff has taken the two devices and put them through a drop test, dropping each on its back, side and front. The iPhone 6 did well when dropped on the side and back, but unsurprisingly suffered when dropped on its face. The 6 Plus, on the other hand, cracked when it landed on the side. However, it sustained little further damage when falling on its face. Based on this one test, both phones may have performed worse than the iPhone…

    iFixIt is in the process of taking apart the new iPhone 6 Plus, currently on sale in Australia. Surprisingly, the team points out that the internal layout of the device is extremely similar to that of the iPhone 5s, except at a larger scale and with a bigger battery. The teardown's findings reveal the battery capacity of the device and some internal reorganization. In removing the front panel from the rest of the device, the iFixIt team notes that there are "no noticeable booby traps", referring to the iPhone 5s' cable that ran from the Touch ID sensor to the Lightning port.

  • iPhone 6 teardown reveals larger 1810 mAh battery, inline with screen size increase

    Benjamin Mayo
    19 Sep 2014 | 1:39 am
    With the iPhone 6 Plus teardown complete, iFixit has commenced work on disassembling the iPhone 6. Unsurprisingly, the internals are similar to that of the 6 Plus, but adjusted to fit in a smaller space. Whereas the 6 Plus can contain a humongous 2915 mAH battery, the iPhone 6 has a 1810 mAH rated battery. This is still an improvement over the ~1500 mAh component in the iPhone 5s, but is roughly inline with relative increases in screen size. Apple’s official battery life tests indicate that the iPhone 6 performs roughly as well (in some instances, better) than the iPhone 5s in…

    18 Sep 2014 | 8:46 pm
    Youtuber PhoneBuff has managed to get his hands on an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus at an Apple Store in Australia. In the video below, PhoneBuff puts these two devices through the ultimate torture test.

So far we’ve already seen a 2915 mAh battery, which provides the increased battery life in the much larger of the two models. The company will likely teardown the smaller iPhone 6 once the Plus model has been fully disected. You can follow along as the company discovers what makes the new handsets tick over on iFixit.com.

  • 7 Handy Tasks QuickTime Player Performs for Free

    When it comes to the wide variety of apps and tools available on a Mac, QuickTime Player is often overlooked. It can’t hold a candle to VLC’s usefulness and is usually opened by mistake when you click on a .MOV file. You’ve probably changed the file association so QuickTime never gets used, so you’ve probably overlooked its bounty of useful features. QuickTime is better than you think, and performs many tasks you’d expect from premium software for free. You might think differently about this bundled freebie once you’ve seen what it can do!

    When it comes to greeting cards, iPhoto makes it easy to create your own using one or more photos and your own unique message. Though over the years iPhoto has grown beyond a simple publishing tool, creating a greeting card is a bit like laying out and publishing a photo book with iPhoto. While Apple has announced that iPhoto will be discontinued and replaced by a new photo editing application, iPhoto will still be the go-to image management application when OS X Yosemite lands soon. So in the meantime, let’s take a look at how you can create your own personal greetings for the…

For starters, Mann really pushes the cameras to the limit with some extreme low-light shooting. Good to know the iPhone 6 series cameras can handle such low light, and it does help showcase the difference between the 5s and 6 series cameras.

Well, Apple decided against sapphire, and fairly late in the production process I might add. They went with their number 2 choice, glass made with an ion exchange process, which is commonly known as Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Apple chose not to mention it by brand name for some unknown reason, perhaps they have designs a a competitive glass…

  • The Apple Watch: Cupertino’s Tour de Force of Technological Interaction

    JT
    10 Sep 2014 | 9:42 am
    I admit that I’ve been cooly analytical about most of Apple’s recent product announcement. Part of that may stem from the fact that it’s usually pretty clear what Apple will be announcing based on their refresh cycle; part of it may be that every detail of Apple’s upcoming products are called out by intrepid bloggers months ahead of time. The end result is that there are usually few surprises remaining by the time Tim or Phil take the stage for the official announcement. Yesterday, Cook’s “One more thing” brought back a feeling I haven’t felt watching an Apple event in a…
  • Samsung Revives the Spirit of 2012 with the Galaxy Alpha

    Because I’m a tech fan with a vested interest in keeping competition alive and well, about a year ago I offered Samsung some advice: start copying Apple again. Obviously Samsung are big fans of my work. At the time – and until recently – Samsung has been taking a beating by the reviewerati for a lack of…whatever the reviewerati thought Samsung had been contributing to the consumer electronics market before 2013. Disappointments included stifled yawns at the release its flagship Galaxy S shartphones and the Galaxy Gear series of wearable devices that no one knew they wanted,…
  • “Peak iPad” Is Inevitable, So Dry Your Eyes

    JT
    23 Jul 2014 | 7:05 pm
    Apple announced its 3rd quarter earnings last night and despite posting the most aggressive earnings growth since 2012, your troll headlines center around the decline in iPad sales for the second consecutive quarter. I’m not going to say Apple wouldn’t want the 15 million unit sales every quarter, but the plateauing of the iPad is inevitable. The reasons are pretty straightforward. Smartphone : Necessity :: Tablet : Luxury For everything that’s great about iPads, they are still “tweener” devices, which is why a certain contingent of clueless tech pundits couldn’t…
  • Reaping What They Sowed: Samsung Continues Its Delicious Financial Free Fall

    8 Jul 2014 | 1:38 pm
    I’m sure my readership is all broken up about Samsung’s latest earnings guidance, which is warning that the company’s operating profit has dropped 24% YoY to a 2 year low. Just in case you thought the anticipated $7.1 billion in operating profit was one of those “YoY anomalies”, that figure is also down 16% from the previous quarter. It appears that pundit-dubbed “innovation” combined with a budget-busting campaign of negative advertising and flagship BOGOs haven’t been enough to keep the bends from continuing to bubble up through the…

    I realize this post is coming the day after Google’s 2014 I/O keynote, but I just woke up from it. I give Apple a little bit of shit for the way they trot out 26 3rd party developers during their keynotes, but Jesus Christ if Google did not just bore the shit out of people. So what did they announce? I think the most successful part of the presentation was what they didn’t announce, namely a Google-branded instant paperweight à la the Nexus Q or the Nexus 7. Then again, they did talk a lot about their current crop of shartwatches, but at least there’s a bit of distance…

    It looks as though all those claims of former Android device users jumping ship for the iPhone 6 were true, after all. A new report from Bloomberg states that trade-ins for Samsung smartphones have tripled over at Gazelle, and that number may reach even higher. Indeed, the report states that almost a third of the the site's Android users plan to switch to Apple, with 39 percent reporting that the bigger screens are the deciding factor.Sharyn Funamura, a lawyer in Berkeley, California, seems representative of the trend. Funamura had been loyal to Samsung and BlackBerry before that, but when…

Mann, working in conjunction with The Verge, took the new iPhone and the 5s on a photography trip to Iceland recently to test out the differences and the strength of new features.Focus Pixels, one of the most notable new features, shortens the time that it takes for the camera to autofocus on an object by processing more information about the image.

This time he turns on his old employers, attempting to save a young girl from living a life like his; fortunately, you don’t really need to know anything about the previous titles to get a handle on this one.The USP of the Hitman series is that each mission is a miniature sandbox, letting you complete it how you want.

    EdibleApple
    11 Sep 2014 | 10:52 am
    If you pop on over to Apple’s Watch pages on the company website and start browsing around, you’ll notice the interstitial ads are a bit more sultry, dare we say steamier, than usual. I can just see the tagline now — “Don’t kiss me yet. First, send me your heartbeat.” With no release date nailed down for Apple’s newest product category, we’re going to have to wait a while, presumably, before we see any commercials for the Apple Watch start hitting the airwaves. But if the above is any indication, Apple’s adverts are poised to go down an…

    While Samsung and Apple remain the top two smartphone manufacturers on the planet, that hasn’t always been in the case. Indeed, it’s easy to forget amidst the deluge of Samsung advertising materials that appear at every step, but HTC, back in the early days of Android, used to be Apple’s stiffest competition. These days, HTC smartphones are highly regarded, even if they don’t happen to sell as briskly as their Samsung counterparts. That said, it’s rather interesting that HTC has reportedly hired Paul Golden, the man behind Samsung’s rather clever and…
