    “At the end of May, Apple SVP Eddy Cue told Re/code, ‘We’ve got the best product pipeline that I’ve seen in my 25 years at Apple.’ That’s a bold statement, considering Apple’s excellent run of new products in the last decade-and-a-half,” Adam Levy writes for The Motley Fool. “But, one line item from Apple’s earnings results indicates the company is working on something important. Perhaps its just a new version of the iPhone with a larger screen, or maybe it’s the long-awaited wearable device. It could be a payments service, or…

    There's a very interesting interview over on Polygon with Stoic Studios, developers of the hit tactical adventure title The Banner Saga which launched on Steam back in January and is on its way to the iPad. In the interview Stoic touches on what it's like developing a game as a fledgling indie studio, and two things in particular really stood out to me. First they talk about how the introduction of the iPad and Superbrothers' Sword & Sworcery game were two key factors that made the team realize that "going indie" was something they could be successful at.

    Historically, movie tie-in games have sucked, but it seems like that trend might ever so slowly be changing. Temple Run has produced a couple of fun movie tie-in spinoffs, the Guardians of the Galaxy mobile game is pretty good, and the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [$3.99] game seems really promising. Another good example is Glitchsoft's recent Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past [$0.99]. Sure, it might not change the world or anything, but it's a surprisingly competent action platformer that does great fan service in the form of many playable characters. Today a new update has landed for…

    In our preview of the OS X Yosemite beta today, we focused mostly on the OS-wide changes to the user interface and the new features of a few built-in apps. As happened in the transition from iOS 6 to iOS 7, though, there are plenty of other applications in Yosemite that still work like they did in Mavericks, just with a fresh coat of paint. We've collected a few different representative examples in the photo gallery below—some of these designs completely rethink the way the original application looked (Game Center). Some of them look basically the same but compress the UI or move buttons to…

As the smartwatch market has grown with entries from Qualcomm, Samsung, and Google, Apple has remained remarkably mum on the concept, in spite of long-standing rumors hinting at a wristwatch in the works in Cupertino. On Sunday, iWatch's hopes grew further with the unveiling and approval of a new smartwatch patent filed by Apple in July, 2011. As reported by Wired UK, the US patent describes a "wrist-worn electronic device and methods therefor," and its description certainly resembles the features users have come to…

    23 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    This is Yosemite. Andrew Cunningham It's not difficult to get your hands on pre-release Apple software. For a mere $198 a year ($99 each for OS X and iOS) you can download beta versions of operating systems from Apple's developer site even if you've never written a line of code in your life. This year, Apple is taking things a step further. The new public beta program for OS X Yosemite officially launches Thursday, taking software that has traditionally been protected from the public by a $99 paywall and distributing it to the first million users who sign up on Apple's site. It's a very…

  • Stickers Are Front and Center in Apple’s New MacBook Air Ad

    Graham Spencer
    21 Jul 2014 | 9:21 pm
    Apple today posted a new ad for the MacBook Air, and it has a very different style to what we've seen in recent MacBook ads. Titled 'Stickers', this short and simple ad, filmed mostly with stop-motion, focuses on the back of the MacBook Air's display where it is covered in dozens of different stickers. The ad features music from Hudson Mohawke and ends with the slogan "The notebook people love". You can view the full advert below, on Apple's website or on their YouTube channel.

    Marked, developed by Brett Terpstra, is my must-have utility to convert MultiMarkdown to HTML on my Mac. Whenever I need to publish an article from OS X rather than my iPad (usually because I need to record and include GIFs or screencasts), I rely on Marked to handle conversion to valid HTML with a keyboard shortcut. And yet, as we've shown before, there is so much that Marked can do, such as printing to a variety of formats, keyword and readability analysis, and more. Today, Brett released version 2.3 of Marked and made it available on the Mac App Store as well. Both versions of the app…

    Noemi Tasarra-Twigg
    24 Jul 2014 | 6:38 am
    Even before the iPhone 6 has been launched! Do you smell that? The reek of desperation emanating from Samsung… Yeah, okay, maybe I went a little overboard fangirling with those statements, but seriously! The new Samsung Galaxy S5 ad was released on YouTube this week, all while speculation about the iPhone 6 is still rife. Then again, I guess if you’re a Samsung fan, you’d be making fun of how Apple fans get all excited about the newest iPhone and how we speculate like nothing else. Samsung just doesn’t want to stop taking potshots at the iPhone. It wasn’t that…

    My iPad is one heck of a gaming machine, and that’s all I basically use it for. If you’re like me, then you probably have the usual gaming suspects that are always installed. You may not always play these games, but you’ll keep coming back to them at some point. Then there are those games that you sometimes uninstall – in all likelihood due to lack of space – but again, at some point, you’ll reinstall them.

Apple has repeatedly said that they have stringent security measures in place, although doubts have been raised about that. In a recent report, iOS author and former hacker – add forensics expert to that – Jonathan Zdziarski claims that Apple may have “inadvertently” admitted to having created an iOS backdoor.

Sometimes, you even get the “pleasure” of a bucketful of frustration when you found out that your whole roll was ruined. Or that you shot crappy photos. Gone are those days, thanks to smartphones and digital cameras, but I think you will agree that there has been more than a little bit of hipster whining about “the good old days” and “nostalgia” when it comes to “real photography”.

    It probably won’t come as a surprise, but Apple may be working on its own e-wallet technology that could debut alongside the iPhone 6 this fall. Per The Information, anonymous sources close to the store claim that Apple is accelerating work on a mobile payments system, or digital wallet, that could be ready by this fall, allowing customers to pay for physical goods with their iPhone instead of a credit card or cash. The report states that Apple is in talks with partner companies to launch a Google Wallet competitor as soon as this fall, with some saying the service may roll out with the…

As we reported yesterday, threads like this one, started reporting that attempts to apply the update would run and fail to actually update the firmware, or that it would “brick” their laptop leaving it unusable. Those that weren’t left with a non-working Macbook Air also reported that after attempting the failed update, the App Store app would show the update as installed with an additional entry showing that…

    24 Jul 2014 | 3:49 pm
    Is an iPad mini Air in the pipeline to help Apple resuscitate sales of its 7.9-inch tablet? The mini, initially very popular in its original A5-powered 1,024 x 768 iteration, has been caught in a pincer this year between a gaggle of lower-priced 7 to 8-inch Android tablets (such as Google’s Nexus and Amazon’s Kindle Fire) and larger-screened smartphones on the one hand; and Apple’s own downsized, lighter, full-sized iPad Air on the other. An irony that obtains is that the current, relatively slow-selling (one surmises by deduction; Apple doesn’t release model sales…

    Kirk Hiner
    24 Jul 2014 | 6:59 am
    I’m going to state straight off that what I like best about the Spyder PowerShadow i5d battery case is the charging dock, as that’s what separates it from the competition and makes it a 24 hour case. Battery charging cases have slimmed down as of late, but they’re often still too bulky to work with your third party docks, and have to be removed. As such, I’ve never used them for more than just emergency situations when I knew I’d need an extended charge—when traveling or covering expos, for example. For normal use, I dock my iPhone every night to use it as my alarm clock and…

    The LA Times: “Using drugs meant for individuals with medical needs to carry out executions is a misguided effort to mask the brutality of executions by making them look serene and beautiful — like something any one of us might experience in our final moments,” U.S. 9th Circuit Court Chief Judge Alex Kozinski wrote in a dissent in the Arizona death penalty case of Joseph Rudolph Wood III. “But executions are, in fact, brutal, savage events, and nothing the state tries to do can mask that reality. Nor should we. If we as a society want to carry out executions, we should be…

    David Pierce, reviewing the Amazon Fire Phone for The Verge: You can’t even see the time without tilting your phone just so. An errant buzz is your only indication that you have a notification, prompting you to cock your wrist or swipe down from the top bezel to open the notification windowshade. None of this is explained, none of it is intuitive. Dynamic Perspective makes everything look cleaner, but makes actually using your phone a lot harder. I don’t need my phone to be clever, or spartan. I need it to be obvious. The Fire Phone is anything but. Rough. Related: Josh Topolsky:…

    Farhad Manjoo: Other instances of Dynamic Perspective are downright annoying. Take Auto Scroll, which moves the text on your screen as you tilt the phone back and forth. Because Auto Scroll calibrates its scrolling speed according to how you’re holding the device when you first load up an article, your brain will struggle to find a set rule about how much to tilt to get the right speed. Often I’d scroll too fast or too slow. Worse, if you put your phone down on a table while you’re in the middle of an article, the scrolling goes haywire and you lose your place. The best thing about Auto…
  • More Amazing Xiaomi/Apple Design Coincidences

    Posit: Xioami (a.k.a. “Mi”) poses a serious threat to Samsung because: Xiaomi is more shameless, more willing to blatantly copy Apple down to as many details as they’re able. They’re better at it. Xiaomi copies with some degree of taste; Samsung has no taste. Xiaomi operates only in countries with weak IP culture and laws, further enabling and protecting them re: points 1 and 2. (This third point was first brought to my attention by Ben Thompson, when he was my guest on The Talk Show a few weeks ago.)  ★

The new iMore header is a reflection of our growth over the last year and the many more stories, and types of stories we're covering.

Our new header is fluid, responsive, dynamic, and gives us a foundation from which to grow even better, faster. We have a variant of the…

    Since Apple opened the doors on its OS X Yosemite public beta, there have been a number of folks having all kinds of issues redeeming their download codes. The program gives you a Mac App Store code to redeem for your copy, but there's a widespread issue that seems to be telling eager testers their codes have already been redeemed. There's an easy fix for it, though, that should have you up and running in no time.

Players pick one of the four classic turtles, and use specific swipes and taps to lay the beat-down against Shredder's minions in a number of different ways. Tapping the screen when an enemy is about to attack launches a counter, while upward swipes send baddies into the air, and horizontal ones deliver devastating attacks.

So I’ve put together a list of the best ways to fix these problems. If your Mac hangs on a white screen or just won’t start up normally, there are a number of things you can do to try to fix the problem. It should be noted that if you have a hardware problem (e.g., bad hard drive, bad memory, bad power supply, etc.) these fixes won’t help. If you have a hardware problem, the best course of…

If only I had an iPad and iStopMotion back then… iStopMotion ($9.99) is a well-design app for the iPad 2 and third-generation iPad. The interface is simple and intuitive, allowing young and old animators alike to get to the task at hand. You can use either the front…

    22 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    Mousecape is a new open source Mac App which is available on GitHub to finally allow you to create and use your own mouse cursors, or 'capes' as the app calls them. Once you download the app, there is a remastered version of the Svanslös cursor set created by Max Rudberg which is retina-screen ready. Mousecape is as non-instrusive as possible, never asking you for your password for anything. It works by using private APIs created by Apple to register system cursors so it has no performance hit at all. Capes, or cursor sets, are applied for as long as display state doesn't change, meaning…
  • Make iWork 09 the default and avoid update nagging

    Many people continue to use iWork 09 apps, because they contain features missing in the newer versions. However, having the older apps on your system mean a constant nagging from Apple to update to the newer versions.

This can be helpful if you have a Time Machine backup that's on a newer OS than your install media, or if you're selling/donating your Mac as it saves the new user having to update things. First things first, wipe your drive (and zero it if you don't trust the end user of this computer) and reinstall your desired OS. Once your OS is installed, boot to your install media or the Recovery Partition if available. Open Terminal…

    10 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    I've become somewhat obsessed with the faces feature in iPhoto. Currently, I have about 7000 unidentified faces in my library. I knock out a few hundred here and there. It's oddly satisfying, but I go to a lot of large events - events where a lot of people look familiar because they are regulars, but I don't know them. This makes finding faces rather cumbersome, especially since the method of ignoring faces requires the mouse. Everything else can be done with the keyboard. Plus, doesn't track repeatedly ignored faces, so the same faces keep showing up. Well, I've discovered a way to work…

    Nate the greatest (2261802) writes Apple thrilled investors earlier this week when they revealed that they had sold 13 million iPads to schools and claimed 85% of the educational tablet market, but that wasn't the whole story. It turns out that Apple has only sold 5 million iPads to schools since February 2013, or an average of less than a million tablets a quarter over 6 quarters. It turns out that instead of buying iPads, schools are buying Chromebooks. Google reported that a million Chromebooks were sold to schools last quarter, well over half of the 1.8 million units sold in the second…

  • Quicksilver

    Ricky Buchanan
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:16 pm
    Quicksilver is difficult to describe – it’s a keyboard-controlled launching utility, or perhaps a keyboard-operated graphical shell. It can be immensely helpful to anyone who uses keyboarding as their main type of computer input – including switch users and voice input users. This program is not something that I use personally and even people who know it very well have a hard time describing it in a single paragraph. It’s pretty much something that’s aimed at very geeky or somewhat technically inclined users. The Quicksilver website says: An introduction to…

    At the recent World Wide Developers Conference Apple had a lot to say about the upcoming iOS 8. There are many exciting enhancements coming with iOS 8 and one of them is the ability to use Siri completely hands-free without having to press the physical home button or the virtual one in AssistiveTouch. A simple “Hey, Siri” will bring up your favorite virtual assistant ready to take your requests as long as your iOS device is plugged in (subject to change hopefully).

    23 Jul 2014 | 6:07 am
    The FLIR One was one of the more interesting Apple-related things I saw at this year's CES. The product is a case for the iPhone 5/5s that adds thermal optics to the phone. It was a pretty cool demo. The FLIR One is available now for pre-order for $349. It's expected to ship starting August 7th. The only down side I think is the timing with a potential new iPhone. Before dropping $350 on an accessory, you might want to consider whether or not you plan to upgrade to the next iPhone, which will almost certainly have a new form factor. <iframe width=&quot;640&quot;…

Apple breached more records than normal; setting record quarterly revenue, record iPhone sales, and record iPad sales. However it isn’t all up and up, and what about Samsung, how are they fairing? Apple today announced quarterly revenue of $57.6 billion, on earnings per share of $14.50. That…

This production estimate is through December 30th, but still incredibly ambitious, representing the largest production run in the companies history.

  • How to make a calendar public in iOS

    Christopher Meinck
    18 Jul 2014 | 3:51 pm
    When you create a calendar using the Calendars app, it becomes accessible on all of your iOS devices, a PC or Mac and the Internet. This means that access is not restricted to owning an iPhone, iPad or an Apple product for that matter. Any web browser will do, provided they have an iCloud account (free) and that allows for more robust sharing options beyond friends and family who carry iOS devices. If you are dealing with a small group, whether your family or colleagues, it makes sense to use the method we described for sharing a calendar. It’s easy enough for folks to understand and…

In the video below, Kimmel's team pesters passersby on Hollywood Boulevard and tells them to check out Apple's upcoming smartwatch, and for the most part, they all respond enthusiastically. The catch? It's just a $20 Casio watch with an Apple logo slapped on the back."I like that it has an Apple insignia on the back," one person said. "If it's Apple, it's good, right?"

    iCloud Mail is currently experiencing service issues. The conflict has been impacting users for more than an hour and is currently ongoing according to Apple’s system status page. “Users may experience slower than normal response when using iCloud mail,” Apple’s description of the service disruption says. It appears Apple’s App Store, iTunes Store, and iBooks Store also experienced down time with customers not being able to make purchases, but Apple’s system status page says that outage was resolved after just over an hour.

  • Apple: How to fix Yosemite Public Beta code if it says already been redeemed

    Jordan Kahn
    24 Jul 2014 | 12:21 pm
    Earlier today Apple opened up its public beta program for the upcoming OS X Yosemite release allowing the public to download the beta build from the Mac App Store. Those who signed up for the program received a code through Apple’s Beta Program website, but a number of users reported experiencing an error that said their code had already been redeemed. If you’re still having trouble, here’s the fix from Apple: Refresh the beta program redemption page when signed in to generate a new code (here). That’s it. The new code should work when entered into the Mac App Store. Apple doesn’t…

    Google has released an update to Gmail for iOS this afternoon that brings “Insert from Drive” and “Save to Drive” functionality to the iPhone and iPad. The update brings the app up to par with the Gmail app for Android and web, allowing users to insert files stored in their Google Drive accounts directly from their iPhone or iPad. The updated app also includes the ability to save attachments in emails to the drive app directly from within the iOS app: Just like with Gmail on the web, you can now insert files from Google Drive directly into an email on your phone or tablet.

  • Hands-on with a functional 4.7-inch iPhone 6 clone, attention to detail is ridiculous (Video)

    Dom Esposito
    24 Jul 2014 | 11:08 am
    A functional “Wico6″ iPhone 6 clone has made its way into a detailed hands-on video published by YouTuber Danny Winget. This functional clone mimics Apple’s iPhone in almost every way possible, all the way down to the packaging and accessories. So what’s the big deal? Apple clones pop up all of the time. Well, the Wico6 is designed to look like all of the iPhone 6 dummies we’ve seen up to the point. This “fully functional” device does work as a smartphone (SIM card slot and all), but it’s not running iOS. Much like Goophone’s i6 copycat…

  • Scammer Arrested, Used Credit Card Validation Trick

    Gary Allen
    24 Jul 2014 | 5:15 pm
    The U.S. Secret Service has arrested a Florida man for federal wire fraud related to $309,000 in credit card transactions at Apple retail store that exploited a procedural vulnerability and the willingness of employees to complete a sale. According to the criminal complaint, Sharron L. Parrish, 52, also attempted to charge another $51,000 on his Chase and SunTrust credit cards, but the transactions were either declined or interrupted. Parrish was arrested in Tampa on July 17th and is being held without bail. He is being represented by a federal public defender. The Secret Service says…
  • Q3 Financials Completely Ignored The Retail Stores

    Gary Allen
    23 Jul 2014 | 5:22 pm
    For the first time in recent history, Apple’s announcement of its quarterly financial results did not include details about the retail stores, and a one-hour conference call made absolutely no mention of the chain at all. It also appears the company will no longer report the number of store visitors–the figure was missing from the financial filing for the second quarter in a row. Significantly, Apple said it will open just 20 new stores during fiscal 2014, the lowest number since 2002, the second year of the chain. Two-thirds of those stores will be outside the United States.

  • Rendering Sparks Speculation on Future Apple Store

    Gary Allen
    18 Jul 2014 | 3:35 am
    A huge new shopping mall is under construction in a suburb of Lucerne (Switzerland), and if renderings of the future mall are correct, it will host an Apple retail store. The Mall of Switzerland will span 785,000 square-feet in the small town of Ebikon when it opens in 2017, including 120 shops, a cinema, hotel, apartments and public areas. Earlier this year several renderings were posted on-line, and one showed a hallway lined with retail stores. One of those stores was outfitted with typical Apple wood product display tables, back-lit wall graphics and stainless steel structural columns.

    Nearly two years after Apple’s real estate scouts were spotted walking the hallways of the Lakeside Joondalup (Australia) shopping mall, sources say Apple has finally signed a lease there and has started to recruit new employees. The store would be the third along the western coast of the country, an outpost of Apple stores about 1,300 miles away from the next-nearest stores. The timing of the new store is understanable—the mall is undergoing a renovation and expansion that will make it the largest shopping center in Western Australia.

    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…

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…

  • iPhone's Mysterious "Other" Data

    21 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    If you’ve ever filled your iPhone to capacity, you may have suddenly noticed a gray section of stored data titled “Other” in iTunes. What could this mysterious data be? Well, there could be a couple things that could be contributing to it, but the most likely culprits are your apps. More specifically, one culprit: iMessage. You’re probably not aware of this, but every time you send or receive a file within an iMessage — whether it’s photos or various documents — your iPhone stores that data. If you are like millions of other users who enjoy sending…

    Recently, I’ve written about RokForm, the Just Mobile Deluxe Car Kit and Belkin’s Car Tune in Kibbles & Bytes as solutions to mount your iPhone in the car. However, I found that like most accessories, it’s all about what fits the user and in this case, your vehicle. While manufacturers list most accessories as being universally compatible, we all know with the way cars are set up, that just isn’t the case. Some cars’ cigarette/DC power ports are no longer openly accessible, but rather, tucked away in the center console. The suction cup on the Just Mobile is great, but not for…
  • iPod touch Gets an Update

    26 Jun 2014 | 1:13 pm
    Today, Apple announced an update to their iPod touch. Nothing too major — those announcements are usually saved for their Keynote presentations — but it may excite some of you out there. A while back you may recall they released a 16GB touch that was pretty much a dumbed-down version of their 32GB and 64GB versions — no rear-facing camera, only came in silver, etc. However, now every 16GB iPod touch comes in all colors (pink, blue, yellow, black and silver), iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording, 4-inch Retina display, A5 chip, and FaceTime camera. The 16GB will come…

    Apple's earnings call this quarter revealed news that was very much in line with the trends we've been seeing from the Cupertino company in years past: For the most part, device sales were up, but sales of the iPad continued the downward slide we've been seeing for a while. On the plus side, research firm IDC (via MacRumors) shows that Apple still maintains a healthy lead over its competitors in the tablet market.For specifics, Apple currently holds a 26.9 percent controlling share.

In the video below, Kimmel's team pesters passersby on Hollywood Boulevard and tells them to check out Apple's upcoming smartwatch, and for the most part, they all respond enthusiastically. The catch? It's just a $20 Casio watch with an Apple logo slapped on the back."I like that it has an Apple insignia on the back," one person said. "If it's Apple, it's good, right?" Plenty of people thought so, even though the watch Kimmel's team…

  • Want a fast fileshare? Think about IP over Thunderbolt Bridge

    Justin Esgar
    30 May 2014 | 8:09 am
    Intel’s Thunderbolt is one of the latest technologies that allows you to connect very fast external drives to your computer. Apple has been including Thunderbolt since 2011 on their computers. When Thunderbolt 1 came out it was running at 10Gbit/s bi-directional. This means you get 10GBits downstream and 10GBits upstream at the same time. The new Thunderbolt 2 now runs at 20Gbit/s. The major issue most users have seen until now is that their computer probably only comes with one thunderbolt port. If you have a 21″ iMac, Macbook Air, Mac Mini or mid-2012 MacBook Pro you only have…

Each client has a different issue (corrupted contacts, not syncing issues, etc etc) – but in all cases there was one thing that needed to be understood by clients: How does Kerio work? There are three different types of mail solutions. POP (post office protocol), IMAP (internet messaging access protocol), and MAPI (messaging application programming interface). POP is the old way to do things. A mail server would hold your email, and you’d tell your mail…
