    Most of the rumors that surround Apple lately have to do with the company's plans to build a wearable. We're still not sure that it'll be called the "iWatch," but we do know that the company has been hiring people from different sectors in health and fashion in order to build its first smartwatch. The sudden death of the Nike Fuelband has left a ton of very talented people available for such a task, and Apple is already taking action. Two former Nike Fuelband employees have just updated their LinkedIn profiles to confirm that they work for Apple. The two new Cupertino employees are Jon ...

    Case makers have been famous for getting an early look at what's to come from Cupertino in order to build compatible products. We've been bombarded with a ton of iPhone 6 cases and mock-ups over the last couple of weeks, and given their similarities, it's hard to deny that these could point to the final product we might see in September. Today, famous case maker Spigen has listed one of its compatible products for Apple's iPhone 6, which only gives the previous leaks an added level of credibility. Spigen published an Amazon listing for cases that are compatible with the iPhone 6 in 4.7 ...

    It's hard to deny that every iPhone ever launched has gained a significant level of popularity. Apple may not sell most of the smartphones in the world, but with the amount of iPhones seen in the public these days, it's clear that Apple has a significant lead. If you're interested in seeing just how popular a device like the iPhone 5s is today, the numbers are in. ABI Research has just published its report for Q1 2014, and the firm is declaring the iPhone 5s as the most popular smartphone in the world for that quarter. Sadly the details as to how this ranking was determined are hard to ...

    Apple's announcement of iOS 8 at WWDC 2014 was met with a lot of praise. Surely it looks like iOS 7 in every way, but this is the boldest change in functionality that we've seen Apple provide to its mobile operating system since iOS 5 three years ago. Even with the recent reports that iOS 8 beta 3 would not reach developers until tomorrow, June 8th, Apple has launched the update a day early, and the changes continue to be focused on bug fixes. Oddly the iOS 8 beta 3 release notes are not yet available, but it should be just a couple of hours for that to happen. We're currently downloading ...

    As we get closer to the launch of Apple's next-generation iPhone, which we continue to dub the iPhone 6, more rumors emerge on what to expect. We've heard that Apple might bring a sapphire crystal panel to at least one of the alleged iPhone 6 models, though if you're wondering why this is worth it, you can watch our extensive introduction to sapphire. Still, it seems that Sonny Dickson got his hands on one of these panels and decided to show you just how durable it is. Sadly, even though Dickson does mention the word sapphire in the title of this video, that doesn't confirm that what he's ...

    You might remember that at the launch of the HTC One M8 I wrote an article titled “I was going to switch my iPhone 5s to an HTC One M8, but..”  and my arguments for avoiding the change were based on the poor camera, its lack of a fingerprint scanner, and the fact that boom sound wasn’t everything. Fast forward to today, give me an HTC One M8 for a week and now my iPhone is in a drawer. Since a lot of you asked us why this happened in our previous After The Buzz episode of the HTC One (M8), we'll compare both of these devices in a video, and tell you the reasons why. There is no such ...

    Apple is reportedly going to launch two different iPhone models this year, and even though we've called both devices the iPhone 6, we do know that there are significant differences between both of them. Earlier this year the rumors were that these devices would launch separately, but two credible reports recently have pointed to a launch date of both devices on September 19th. At this point it's hard to confirm that, and with some new reports today of a later date, things have begun to get complicated. A new source is claiming that both iPhone models will have a different name, just like ...

    One benefit that many people have found in owning Apple iOS products is the combination of its AppleCare+ extended warranty, and Apple's Genius Bar service. For $99 you receive two years of warranty protection for any iPad or iPhone, and in case of any accidental damage to the device on your part, you could replace your iPad for $49, or iPhone for $79, with a total of two incidents being covered. Sadly if you didn't purchase the warranty when you bought the product, the most you were allowed to wait was 30 days, though Apple has just decided to change that. As of yesterday Apple is now ...

    Apple has garnered some fame for its "Reuse and Recycle" policy for iPhones and iPads. You can trade devices as old as the iPhone 3G from 2008, to the iPhone 5 of 2012 and get some credit for your iPhone upgrade. With prices ranging from $99 for an iPhone 4, to $199 for an iPhone 4s, upgrading to another device could be free on contract in some cases, and that deal was much sweeter with devices like the iPhone 5, though we used the word "was" intentionally. Apple has just cut the trade-in value of the iPhone 5 from $270 to just $225, which is a whopping $45 less. This change is currently ...

    Both Android L and iOS 8 have been hot topics of late. Both developer previews have provided us with plenty to look forward to – third-party keyboards and sharing options in iOS, a new design language in Android L, built-in health and fitness features for both, and major improvements all around. Yesterday, we compared the Android L and iOS 8 developer previews, and while we understand these still are not completely finished versions of software, there are some things we'd like to change about each OS. There are things Google could learn from Apple and vice versa. Below, you will find ...

    Apple's launch of the iPhone 4s was met with much praise because of one particular feature, Siri. Ever since then, competing companies have evolved what we previously knew as simple "voice command" into something that can actually assist you with certain tasks. There is still much work to be done in order to improve these services, which still remain in beta for the most part, and it seems that Apple has a master plan that could be executed soon. A recent article by Wired magazine points to all of the recent efforts that Apple has been commanding in order to improve Siri's reliability. ...

    Apple's historically made back-to-school promotions available for students during the summer season, and this year is no exception. There are deals to be had in the 2014 Apple Back to School promotion on iPads, iPhones, and Macs, so listen up to find out just how much you'll be able to save. Let's talk iPhone first, as that's always a hot topic among students. You'll get a $50 Apple Store gift card (not the iTunes kind), with no further discount -- that's not to say that's a bad deal, though. If you're buying an iPad, you'll receive the same $50 gift card, but you will be able to couple ...

    Ever since the launch of the first-generation iPhone, Apple's obsession over making a phone that's thinner and lighter than its competition has always been clear. Ergonomics are a big deal for the Cupertino kids, and every subsequent launch of the iPhone has seen additional loss in weight and millimeters. Rumors have the iPhone 6 going through the same process, but manufacturing issues have already begun to surface. Reports have it that for the iPhone 6 to be just 6 mm thin, Apple has recurred to using just one Brightness Enhancement Film (BEC) in its backlight. The iPhone has historically ...
