Founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, Apple is the most valuable tech company in the World. Apple started as a computer company but today it has become one of the largest smartphone producing companies in the world. Other than iPhone, Apple is well known for its products such as iPods, iPad, iTunes, and Macs. The company's latest smartphone was iPhone 4, that is widely praised for its hardware as well as software. Apple's portable devices are powered by iOS mobile operating system. Read our Apple coverage for the latest iPhone news, reviews and videos:

    One of the biggest contradictions of the Apple Watch is that even though Apple announced it in September, that's really the only thing that we received from Cupertino. Jony Ive did give us an extensive walkthrough over some of the features of the Apple Watch, but the video only left us with more questions than answers. Apple has silently updated the Apple Watch website and reveals a couple of the functions that the device will be able to do. Apple updated three key features on the website, which are time keeping, new ways to connect, and health and fitness. In the case of "time keeping," ...

    Apple isn't really one of those companies that likes to admit defeat, but we could say that the iPhone 5c is an exception. We remember how Tim Cook admitted that the iPhone 5c didn't meet sales expectations last year, and we also know that Apple sat on a ton of inventory early in the sales period of this device's launch. It's safe to assume that Apple still has too much inventory to admit to, as reports already predict its end of life. Taiwan's Industrial and Commercial Times is already stating that Apple will end production of the iPhone 5c by the middle of 2015. The argument is mainly ...

    After a very dramatic end to the relationship between Apple and GT Advanced, you'd think that the whole sapphire project came to an abrupt end. In a way it did, or at least for this year, since we don't really have any Apple product sporting the new display technology that we showed you months ago. That said, Apple has already shown the world that the Apple Watch will sport sapphire in its entry video, and it seems the supplier has just emerged. If you remember, we recently talked about this new $2.6 billion display factory that Foxconn is currently building through its subsidiary InnoLux. ...

    It's that time of year again: bargain-hunters bundle up for a long night out in the cold, armed with a vacuum flask full of coffee and a checklist of the stores they'll be hitting. Retail employees let out a resigned sigh as they prepare to begin a single shift that starts somewhere around Wednesday afternoon and lasts through Saturday morning. And if you're anything like us, you're staying warm at home, probably watching way too much Netflix, and hoping to snag a few good deals online. That's right – it's Black Friday time. What used to be a single day of retail hedonism has mutated ...

    Apple seems to be drifting farther apart from the original partnership it started with Google on the original iPhone. Surely Google has brought significant competition to Apple on the Android space, but some of these changes have actually been positive for Apple in the long run. We all remember the disastrous move to Apple Maps, but that doesn't change the fact that Google Maps wasn't allowed to launch its own app in the end, and the same can be said about YouTube updates after Apple decided to stop bundling it. Rumors have it that more changes are to come, but these ones might not be as ...

    Tablets have proven to be a very odd product category, but then again, so were smartphones before 2007. Most of us that have been using smartphones and tablets since before they became popular remember how long it took for both products to gain traction, though the difference here is that smartphones have continued to grow, and tablets are oddly slowing down. New market estimates for the rest of the year aren't painting a pretty picture, and it seems the iPad is mostly to blame. IDC has already revealed its estimates for the tablet market by the end of this year, and its analysts are ...

    Back in 1997, the then "Apple Computer" was just a few weeks from filing for bankruptcy when its executives decided to pull the crazy stunt of re-hiring a guy they had fired more than a decade earlier because of being a rebel. You might remember him as Steve Jobs, the infamous and ruthless CEO who later killed products like the Newton, among almost every other Apple product, in order to focus on just a few specific computer lineups. If people thought Jobs was crazy for wanting to make computers personal in the 70s, reducing Apple to a bare minimum in the 90s was considered insane. Fast ...

    Apple has broken a significant amount of records since the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. We saw how the company sold its fare share of phones in just the first few days of the launch, and obviously this leap also includes an extra share of growth for the company in its services. Apple may not be too happy with its current iTunes performance, but the App Store shows a different story. We still don't have any official data from Apple, but App marketing firm Fiksu has just revealed its numbers for the last couple of months. According to the study conducted through October on the ...

    Even though Apple has never been a fan of the existing Android spec race, that doesn't mean that the company hasn't done its fare share of innovation in hardware with every existing iPhone. The iPhone 5s became famous for sporting the first 64-bit mobile processor, and that legacy has continued with the iPhone 6 and its new A8 chip. What's interesting is that we keep discovering that the processor has more capabilities than those marketed by Apple. The developers of WALTR, an app that allows Mac users to upload and view video files that aren't supported by iOS devices, have discovered that ...

    If you can’t decide between the new Nexus and the new iPad, you’re probably hung up on one of two factors: ecosystem or price. Nothing we say here will change the fact that the Nexus 9 is about $100 cheaper, and if you’re already invested in Apple’s or Android’s walled garden, the decision is already made based on which smartphone you’re carrying. Probably. But if you’re thinking about jumping platforms, or this will be your first tablet, there are a few differences worth discussing. Those differences span hardware, software and day-to-day performance – and the end ...

    Earlier this week we saw Apple distribute iOS 8.1.1 to its userbase, resolving a few bugs and delivering what were supposed to be performance improvements for older Apple hardware like the iPhone 4S, which had been struggling to meet the demands of iOS 8 with aging A5 SoCs and just 512 MB of RAM. Did Apple succeed in its goal? Some real-world testing suggests it did to an extent, though even these tweaks are insufficient to bring these models back to previous levels of performance. In an array of timed tests, iPhone 4S hardware completed tasks in essentially the same amount of time running ...

    With autumn very much making its presence felt, and the last days of 2014 looming ahead, the mobile electronics market is about to make another of its regular shifts, temporarily moving away from a time dominated by launch after launch, and instead focusing more on getting these products into our hands. We've just come off a couple big months of launches, led in by IFA in early September, and peppered with iPhone, iPad, and Nexus announcements in the weeks that followed. But now with the holiday season arriving as an unavoidable juggernaut, we're about to see the steady flow of new devices ...

    Just like there's a daring community of users that can't live without rooting an Android phone, there's also another community that still believes in the need of an iOS Jailbreak. So far, jailbreaking devices isn't getting any easier, and at the same time, the community has slowly lost its importance as Apple keeps addressing the needs for people to Jailbreak. If you've accidentally upgraded your iOS device to iOS 8.1.1, there's hope for you, but with a catch. We now see a video that shows that iOS 8.1.1 has already been Jailbroken, something that shows that there is progress in the ...
