    They've got almost nothing in common besides their aluminum casings – and that shouldn't come as too big a surprise. The iPhone 6 is Apple's crown jewel, a curved and super-thin ingot packing technologies cherry-picked by Apple to run its closed and meticulously managed iOS platform. By contrast, HTC's One M9 is a thick block of precision-machined metals, its sharp angles exaggerated by a dual-anodization manufacturing process, its software a heavily customized version of the much more mutable Android Lollipop. There's so much more to say – but it's all been said; to get the full ...

    It started out so simply: each year Apple would introduce one new iPhone. Sure, you could choose storage capacity, and eventually color, but there was only one phone. Back in 2013, Apple first started showing signs that it was ready to mix things up, and launched a pair of new iPhones: the 5S and the 5C. Now you could argue that the 5C shouldn't really count, as it was more a repackaged iPhone 5, but that only set the stage for last year, when we got two undeniably distinct iPhones with the debut of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. To hear the latest rumor, this year Apple ...

    The Apple Watch will soon descend upon the company’s retail stores, and no matter how you feel about Apple's new wearable, its arrival is almost certain to usher-in a new wave of increased public interest in smartwatches in general. But for the moment, the Apple Watch is the wearable to be checking out, and we've already heard a little about just how you can get the opportunity to take a look at it for yourself. Earlier this month we learned some details about how Apple's in-store try-on program would work, and how reservations wouldn't be strictly necessary (though presumably a smart ...

    Apple didn't just surprise the world with giving users public betas for iOS with the launch of iOS 8.3 beta, but we also see the company bringing more than just a dot update with what's to come. Surely the initial release only gave users a couple of changes to emoji options and skin tones, in addition to support for Google's two-step verification process, but some new updates prove that this was just the tip of the iceberg. Apple has just seeded iOS 8.3 beta 4 to developers and public beta testers, and one forgotten topic that gets updated today is Siri. iOS 8 brought some minor updates to ...

    Apple has done a very good job when it comes to the image quality of its iPhone cameras, ever since the launch of the iPhone 4. Many may debate that the company has been reluctant to leave the 8-megapixel-comfort zone that began four iPhone generations ago, but we've been able to prove the dramatic differences between each iPhone camera in our reviews of each product. Still, we've seen the company playing around with different ideas on how to improve the iPhone's camera, while still allowing its smartphone lineup to remain thin and light, and new developments could lead to a breakthrough. ...

    For a minute there, we thought that the launch of Apple's new MacBook would be the end of the iPad Pro/Plus rumors that we've been talking about for months. We only had one Cupertino product with a 12-inch display in our radar, and that ended up matching some of the specs of Apple's new notebook. What's interesting is that rumors for this larger iPad continue, and this time we hear of design changes. Case manufacturers are rarely wrong with case designs, and today we land some new leaks that show us the case for a larger iPad Plus or iPad Pro, and probably the most striking difference of ...

    What would an Apple product launch be without some of the usual drama, right? Apple is famous for not being able to meet the demand of its customers during the first weeks or months of a product launch, and we sometimes wonder if this is a real or just a marketing stunt. If you thought the Apple Watch would be exempt to this, well, it seems reality is different. Internal sources claim that Apple's manufacturing partners are struggling with various stages of Apple Watch production. Most predominant are issues with the manufacturing of the display, as LG seems to not be able to manufacture ...

    Apple is clearly on a mission to get its Apple Watch in the hands of millions of people, even if this is still a market in its rough infancy. Part of the strategy involves allowing users to give the product a try at Apple Stores, and we even hear that you won't need an appointment to do so. That being said, if you can't wait until April 10th for Apple Stores to get devices ready for user testing, you can at least choose which size is right for you today. First off, you'll need either an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch capable of running the latest version of the Apple Store app. Go into the ...

    If there's one thing technology power users like us hate, it's carrying a bunch of different charging wires around when we travel. Why can't we standardized on one type of connector that works for everything? For a while around the turn of the century, many smartphones standardized on the mini-USB port for charging and syncing data. HTC even extended the port's specifications to include audio input/output. That was pretty fantastic since you could use one port to charge, sync, and play music on speakers at the same time. In some cases it could even output video. (See: Why the 3.5mm headset ...

    According to sources of 9to5Mac, Apple could be trying to up its trade-in game by announcing extensions to its current iPhone Reuse & Recycle Program aimed squarely at converting users of other platforms to iPhones. The revised program – which we may as well call an Apple Android trade-in program – will begin in the coming weeks, according to the same sources. The system will work much in the same way that iPhones and iPads are traded-in, meaning that you'll be able to hand over your device and receive an Apple Store gift card which can then be put towards the purchase of a new ...

    Apple's convergence with the television sector has long been rumored – be it through hardware or a service, it's been a topic that's crossed our news desks time and time again over the past few years. But now we're learning of some (perhaps) concrete information. According to a report out of The Wall Street Journal today, an Apple Web TV service is set to launch this Fall, and a few early details have been made available by the publication. Supposedly, around 25 channels (including ABC, CBS, and Fox) will be supported at launch. The service is allegedly meant to work across all iOS ...

    Even though wearables have to be desirable products first, it seems that only a few companies like Motorola have gotten the memo with products like the Moto 360. Still, with the insane disparity between Android sales and Android Wear sales, you'd wonder if any of these companies have done their homework well enough before product launch. Apple has done a lot of hard work in preparing the world for its Apple Watch, but just like with the original launch of the first iPad, most of us still wonder if people will be willing to pay for it, and so have some recent studies. A recent survey ...

    Even though many of us are still skeptical about acquiring an Apple Watch when launched a few weeks from now, there should be others who already have their credit cards ready. For all the rest that still can't make up their minds, Apple decided to give you all the opportunity to set an appointment and test one out at your local Apple Store. Still, it seems that Cupertino is aware that the wearable market has been so sluggish over the last couple of years, and as such, has apparently decided to apply some desperate. Internal sources close to Apple's retail system claim that Apple Store ...

    Updated with high-quality audio cut below. Enjoy! Getting back on the horse. Getting back into the groove. Getting the warp core back on-line. However you phrase it, getting back on-track is exactly what we're doing on this week's podcast, settling back into the studio chairs after over a week in Barcelona handling the hottest mobile technology (and podcasting from unconventional venues). On this week's episode, we're paid a special visit by someone we've heard from before – but he's fresh from his very first Apple experience and full of not only Apple Watch knowledge ... but new ...

    This past Monday, Apple brought us iOS 8.2, all ready to start getting our phones prepared for the arrival of the Apple Watch. And while that was great to see arrive, we've been even more excited to see that's next for iOS updates, after hearing that Apple could be about to open iOS beta testing to the smartphone-using public. Supposedly, we'd see this program go into effect with a forthcoming iOS 8.3 release in March, and today that's just what we get, as signups begin for the iOS 8.3 public beta. Apple used to have a signup page for its OS X public betas, but today we see it drop the old ...

    Now that the first wave of flagships in 2015 has begun, it's time to start firing up the rumor mill for the phones that we'll be seeing in the coming months, including the hotly-anticipated new iPhone, which is always one of the biggest launches of the year. The Wall Street Journal today has kicked-off the anticipation with new news today about possible iPhone 6s features (to be clear, we're just assuming the phone will be called the 6s for the purpose of this article; there is no indication in the cited report that the moniker used will be specifically "iPhone 6s"), including the ...

    Sometimes it feels like getting technical details about Apple hardware can be like pulling teeth. Sure, the company can talk about until the cows come home about how it's the user experience that matters, and not the underlying tech, but would it kill you to admit how much RAM is in your phones? Now the Apple Watch is the new hottness and – unsurprisingly – we've got plenty of questions about how it ticks. Today some new information surfaces, attempting to clue us in to the storage situation on Apple's wearable. Go to Apple's site and it will tell you all about the Apple Watch's heart ...

    In just over six weeks, the Apple Watch will be here. And before we even get that far, prospective shoppers will have the chance to check out Apple's wearable in the company's retail stores. Yesterday's press event brought much-needed details concerning the smartwatch's release, maybe most importantly the full breakdown on pricing. So now that you know what to expect from the Apple Watch's retail debut, we've got just one question for you: are you getting one? You've already heard from some of us, how even big Apple fans just couldn't get on board with what the company brought out to show ...

    I’ve spent the last couple of months debating if I should buy a Moto 360. It’s definitely one of the most beautiful pieces of hardware that I’ve seen over the last couple of months, and even after using the Gear Live for a few weeks, I simply can’t stop drooling over every Moto 360 that I see on the streets. I carry two phones with me all the time, one of these being mostly an iPhone, and the other being mostly an Android phone, so using Android Wear fits perfectly in my life style. The only reason why I didn’t pull the trigger on it in the past, is honestly because of Apple’s ...

    In January of 2007, I owned a touchscreen smartphone that let me surf the web, navigate the streets of my city, communicate via threaded SMS, and silence my ringer with a single switch. No one really cared. Then Apple announced a smartphone that could do all the same things, and the world went crazy. In January of 2010, tablet computers were a decade-old reality. High-end laptop manufacturers offered convertible variants of their standard notebooks, almost all of which ran modern, powerful operating systems like Windows 7. Then Apple came along with its own take on the tablet: ...

As the company's event concludes, iOS 8.2 is already on its way out to Apple users everywhere. Obviously, there's Apple Watch support in place with this release. To interact with an Apple Watch once they come out next month, you'll need a handset running iOS 8.2 and with hardware at least as recent as the iPhone 5. A big ...

    We heard about Apple TV, we heard about the new MacBook: now it's time for maybe the most anticipated news to emerge from Apple's event today, as we start learning about release details for the Apple Watch. Before we get to that, we're talking apps and functionality, as well as getting a formal answer to one of the biggest questions hanging over the Apple Watch: battery life. Apple says that users can expect to get 18 hours of average use on a charge. The latest version of iOS is arriving in preparation for sales of the Apple Watch, and users should start seeing iOS 8.2 headed out today. ...

    Today at Apple's event we're already moving past streaming media and onto mobile hardware. While we're not quite to the highly anticipated Apple Watch news just yet, Apple's got some exciting developments for its laptop lineup, announcing the next generation MacBook. The incredibly thin MacBook measures just 13.1mm thick, thinner than even the 11-inch MacBook Air, while sporting its own 2304 x 1440 12-inch display. It weighs a scant two pounds, making it Apple's lightest notebook computer ever. A new keyboard makes the keycaps larger while delivering a new, thinner switch mechanism, for a ...

    It's Monday, March 9, a week since MWC 2015 got started, which means our mobile attention is no longer focused on Barcelona but has shifted over to the West Coast where it's Apple's turn for the spotlight. We're expecting a lot of news today on a couple different fronts, and Apple's getting us started with something exciting for Apple TV. Like HBO put don't want an expensive cable subscription? HBO's going a la carte, with Apple as an exclusive launch partner (reportedly, Apple will have that exclusivity for three months). For about $15 a month, users will get streaming access to HBO's ...
