    If you want to listen to Apple Music on iOS right now, you have to have iOS 8.4. There is no other option – unless you want to hop onto your computer and use iTunes 12.2 instead.

    Touch. Tap. Push. Prod. Swab. Stab. The button takes a lot of nonsense from its users. And also Benny Benassi and The Biz, but if I hear "push me and then just touch me" one more time, I might need a barbiturate.

    We've spent the last couple of months both considering and dismissing the possibility of an iPhone mini. At first we saw the leaked images of an iPhone 5c successor, but those rumors were quickly shot by trusted sources as the iPhone 5s might still be slated for another year, given its popularity.

    Samsung was in desperate need of a positive break after the sales disappointments it suffered with last year's Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S6 was codenamed "Project Zero" precisely because the company needed to re-invent the device from the ground up, and so it did. If you're wondering how well is the Korean giant doing after ...

    In a perfect world, each time we topped-up the charge on our portable electronics, they'd offer just as much juice as they did the first day we brought them home. But the reality of the situation is that even the latest modern batteries degrade over time, with capacity slowly (and sometimes not so slowly) dwindling ...

    If you've used music streaming service, you've used them all. Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, and other services all have roughly the same feature set, and focus around letting you access a huge library of music from anywhere, any time.

    Cupertino has called its Apple Watch the "most personal" device it has ever made, and that's kind of true. You have to actually like a product a lot in order to be willing to wear it, and given the reported sales of the Apple Watch, that could hold true. The only bummer is that as a first generation product, there are a ...
