    Updated with links to the high-quality, edited version of the podcast. We hope you enjoyed; see you next week! We stayed up all night waiting for an iPhone that (almost) never came. A few days before that, we opined mightily about the smartwatch that's slated to accompany it come early next year – and a day or two before that, we took a quick look at the latest iPhone and Apple Watch competition from the Motorola camp, with the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360. It's smartwatch and smartphone soup over here at Pocketnow and, generous guys that we are, we want to share the experience with ...

    It's impossible to talk about this week's launch announcement of Apple Pay, the NFC-enabled mobile payment system available with the new iPhones and Apple Watch, without drawing comparisons to Google Wallet. And with good reason, as the two services are more alike than either company would probably like to admit – at the end of the day, they're both moving money from A to B, and there aren't that many ways to spice things up. But now one small, though still notable difference is emerging, as we learn how Apple intends to profit from Apple Pay's use. With Google Wallet, we were always ...

    Have you pre-ordered your iPhone 6 yet? Maybe looking for some phablet action with an iPhone 6 Plus pre-order? If so, you're probably in good company, with Apple fans everywhere getting ready to let the company's latest smartphones into their lives. But for as much enthusiasm as we're seeing, this new direction for Apple isn't without controversy: will fans of the company's smaller phones be willing to embrace these larger designs? We're finally starting to hear some carriers weigh in on the public demand for these phones, and to hear that message, Apple has nothing to be worried about. ...

Apple Store The most obvious place to go for iPhone 6 pre-orders is Apple's own online store, but though this is likely where the most supply will be, it's also where the most demand will be.

    Even though we all anticipated the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, we can't deny that the amount of hiccups in the live stream were annoying. Some of us spent minutes refreshing browsers, Apple TVs, iPads and iPhones trying to find a stream that wouldn't crash, something you wouldn't expect from a technology company. The announcement of Apple's new iPhone 6 and Apple Watch have also left the industry quite polarized, and you bet that the competition is doing something about it. Samsung's new ad campaign is titled "It doesn't take a genius," and the six ads that we've seen so far are focused ...

    In the weeks leading up to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launches, no one seemed to be sure exactly what hardware we were going to get. Would only the 4.7-inch model arrive, with the 5.5-incher delayed until later? While we ultimately saw both handsets make their debut, they did so without one of the features that seemed like such a big components to these rumors going back months and months: a very scratch-resistant sapphire screen. After all, Apple has this huge investment in GT Advanced Technologies, which has reportedly been cranking-out sapphire for some time now. By the sound of ...

    For the last couple of years, one of the most ridiculous things about buying a new iPhone on launch day, is being up at midnight Pacific time, or having to make a crazy line and leave empty handed. Apple has done some minor improvements here and there in order to ensure enough stock of devices on launch day so that you at least go home with something, but that doesn't mean people don't spend 11 hours making a line. This behavior is so predictable that people have already begun to make a line a week ago, though Apple is reportedly about to change things. In the past, each device in stock ...

    Apple was criticized after its event the other day with the usual set of weapons non-iPhone fans tend to wield. “Apple innovation is dead.” “There’s nothing new here.” I know. I used to be one of those who would take up the charge against Cupertino. But since then I’ve had a change of heart and developed quite a bit of perspective about the whole thing. I find myself neither in the Apple defender’s camp, nor in its critic camp. Fortunately, this has given me a broader view of the situation, and what I’m seeing these days could turn out to be a very, very good thing, and not ...

    A time not too far into the past, Apple's mobile products were the gold standard of the industry. The iPhone dictated the direction of the coming year, and it was one of the few smartphones with incredible design and a consistent and reliable user experience. Further, tablet-optimized applications were made almost solely for Apple's iPad. However, Apple has been slow to update its software, hardware innovation has almost slowed to a crawl, and other OEMs are closing the gap in many areas – tablet market share, tablet-optimized apps, and even customer satisfaction. Apple got comfortable. ...

    The Apple Watch is more than four months from release (at the very soonest) and any hard information we have at the moment comes directly from the company itself. Crucial details, like battery life and the technology the watch uses to connect with your iPhone, remain hidden for the moment. We don't know how vast swaths of the interface work, and we honestly have no idea what to expect from this device the first time we strap one onto our wrist. But Apple spent over an hour talking about its newest product category at yesterday's iPhone 6 launch event, and we got a pretty good look at ...

    It took Apple a crazy 5 years to finally consider increasing the screen size of its beloved iPhone from 3.5-inches to 4 with the iPhone 5. Even so, many believed that there was more opportunity for growth as Apple continued to push for the importance of one-handed usability. Yesterday's launch of the bigger iPhone 6, and the gigantic iPhone 6 Plus marks a complete contradiction to the company's mentality, and as a result, competitors begin chiming in. The Samsung Mobile crew in Philippines tweeted a photo that repeats a famous phrase from the late Steve Jobs: "No one is going to buy a big ...

    When Apple launched its MFi standard to allow for third-party headphone manufacturers to deliver higher-quality audio through the iOS Lightning port, many people thought this had everything to do with Beats. The purpose for Apple's acquisition of Beats is still a mystery that we're waiting to resolve, but we at least thought that yesterday's Apple event would shed some light, or some products that would show the integration between both companies. That wasn't the case, and still today, we see the first MFi-compatible product being announced. Phillips has just unwrapped its Fidelio M2L ...

    With Apple's launch of the Apple Watch yesterday, I'm sure we can all agree that we were left with more questions than we were left with answers. We received no run down of the device's specifications, nor did we get details on most of its technology, and even though we did get a walkthrough of its software, a lot of the basics weren't mentioned. One of these was the options for left-handed users, and specially with so much emphasis on that digital crown, though we do get some information about it today. Journalists contacted Apple about this particular question, and most of them are ...

    Yesterday's Apple Watch launch offered plenty of reasons for smartwatch fans to take note, and among the wearable's many interesting features, we caught wind of the fact that it charges through wireless induction technology. Apple wasn't doing much to call attention to this fact, but the details were undeniable. Still, it didn't look much like any wireless system with which we were familiar, and instead of any kind of dock or charger pad, instead we saw a tiny inductive coil that snapped right on to the back of the Apple Watch with the help of some powerful magnets. So really, it may be ...
