    Apple's launch of iOS 8.1 yesterday marks the completion of Apple's promise for what iOS 8 should've always been since we saw it announced at WWDC 2014. Apple spent a great deal of time announcing products like iCloud Drive, Apple Pay and Continuity, but none of these services worked as they should until this new "dot" update. It also includes a ton of the bug fixes that customers asked for after the launch of iOS 8.

    Even though the Apple Watch has created a lot of positive buzz for Apple, that doesn't change the fact that not even Cupertino knows when it'll launch the product. This poises a great opportunity for all smartwatch competitors in order to step their game up, and a perfect time to innovate based on what we already see in Android Wear and the Pebble as well. Microsoft is one of those companies that's been rumored to launch a smartwatch for the longest time, and today we get some more information. Credible sources claim that Microsoft is already in advanced stages to be able to announce a ...

    Those that predicted the fall of Apple after the passing of Steve Jobs might have spent the last couple of quarters frustrated. The company has shown positive growth over the last couple of years, even at times when we all criticized its reluctance to adopt new market trends. Apple has just published its Q4 2014 results, and with numbers that shock Cupertino's own expectations. Apple has just announced that it made a staggering $42.1 billion in revenue, which is up from $37.5 billion in the same quarter last year, and with a net quarterly profit of $8.5 billion, which is also up from $7.5 ...

    Google has been gradually rolling out updates to its existing services over the last couple of weeks. We're still a few weeks away from the official launch of Android 5.0 Lollipop to the world, but we've already seen what Material Design looks like in apps like the Google Play Store. There are some updates that Google seems to be holding off for the final build, and Gmail 5.0 seems to be among them. We've just come across an interesting teaser of what to expect for Gmail 5.0, and even though most of the changes are very nice, not every need is being addressed with the update. The positive ...

    If we take the launch of the original Pebble into account, this would be second year of the modern smartwatch. You'd assume that, just like in the case of smartphones and mobile tablets, everyone would own a smartwatch by now, right? Well, the reality is actually quite the opposite, where fitness trackers enjoy a significantly larger portion of the market at the moment. Still, that only means that there is a lot of opportunity left in the smartphone space, and one of the biggest names in the fitness tracking industry is planning to address it. New reports claim that Fitbit is preparing the ...

    Apple's event last Thursday was mainly about iPads and Macs, but the company did take some time to give us information on its new software updates. One of the major changes Apple is pushing to its mobile devices is iOS 8.1, which includes some very needed bug fixes, and even some new enhancements. Cupertino promised the update would reach iOS devices today, and the wait is finally over. Apple has just launched its OTA update to iOS 8.1, and as long as you're rocking any iPad after the iPad 2, or any iPhone after the iPhone 4s, you should be getting the update right this minute. The list of ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand.

This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of ...

    Apple may have not invented the tablet computer, nor may have it been the first company to launch a fully functional product to the world. Still, that doesn't change the fact that the launch of the original iPad left a dent big enough that almost every competitor has followed in Apple's footsteps. Love it or hate it, Apple's iPad lineup remains king in the tablet world, and today we get a glimpse of its future. Today's event was full of iPads, though we wish we could say that all of them were new. Sadly not everything announced today was hot, and that's the main reason we keep our "Love ...

    We're just a few hours away from what we assume to be Apple's last event of the year. So far, we've seen new updates to iOS at WWDC 2014, and we've also seen the new iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch being announced at Apple's event last month. If you're asking yourself what's missing from the puzzle this year, well, actually a lot. We have yet to see new iPads being announced, in addition to certain changes we expect for OS X Yosemite that will benefit iOS users in the Apple ecosystem as well. We could even throw in some Apple TV and iPod updates here as well, but those are a rough ...
