    There's a new iOS beta out for devs this afternoon, only this time around the interesting stuff doesn't really involve new features for the iPhone or iPad, but for Apple's burgeoning wearable platform, the Apple Watch. With the release of the WatchKit framework today, Apple is giving devs the tools they need to start crafting the software that users will first interact with when the smartwatch goes up for sale early next year. And in doing so, Apple's offered the rest of us a little insight into the types of app experiences we can expect. Well, at least some of this falls into “app” ...

    Apple's launch of iOS 8.1.1 yesterday brought some much-needed repair to those of you running the OS on legacy devices like the iPhone 4s and iPad 2. I personally still use an iPhone 4s for my running routine, and after testing it today, I did notice a much more fluid response from both the operating system, and the third-party apps that I have installed. Apple did mention that there were other bug fixes in this software update for existing devices as well, but what the company didn't mention was an added bonus to iPad users. User forums have already begun to report that iOS 8.1.1 is ...

    If you're living in the US, we're sure you're already seeing a fair share of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units on the street. Apple has broken a couple of records in sales when it comes to its new smartphone lineup, and that's just after a couple of weeks in the market. If you're wondering which of the two iPhones is selling more, well, analysts seem to have that figure down for you. Apple is sadly never clear about how many models of a specific iPhone have sold in a quarter. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners has recently done a study over the last 30 days and it has noticed that 68% ...

    Many boast that Apple's support for legacy devices is better than its competitors, and in a way, we could say that is true. You can walk into any Apple Store and notice customers still getting support for Macs and iPhones that are years old, which is great, but that doesn't mean that Apple doesn't try to convince you to upgrade through some planned obsolescence. Many complained that even though the legacy iPhone 4s and iPad 2 were still supported by iOS 8, this slowed their devices to a crawl, and it seems that Apple has decided to address that. Apple has just launched iOS 8.1.1, which we ...

    Sometime early next year, be that the tail end of winter or the early days of spring, Apple will start selling its Apple Watch. With three primary models, each available in a couple sizes and with your choice of bands, there's going to be plenty of selection to go around. Between all the options, will you find a Watch that's compelling enough to make a purchase? Apple looks to be expecting some pretty substantial interest, with industry rumors reporting an initial sales target of 30-40 million of these smartwatches. That figure comes from sources apparently involved in the production of ...

    Yesterday we caught wind of a long overdue fix arriving for some frustrating behavior of Apple's iMessage service, where the phone numbers of people who had previously used iMessage got “trapped” in the system, preventing other iMessage users from sending text messages to these ex-users' phones. Apple's solution was to launch an online iMessage deregistration tool, where you could once and for all tell Apple to stop associating your phone number with a now-dormant iMessage account. And while that's going to help out a lot going forward, it doesn't do much to resolve the months and ...

    The iPhones (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) of 2014 are bigger; both of them. Apple has finally decided to give up on whatever it was that made the company stick to the form factor of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, and the slightly smaller ones on the 4s, 4, and previous generation. Samsung played a huge role in setting a trend for bigger smartphones with its first Galaxy Note, and, ever since, the industry has been moving in the direction of bigger screens. The way it was before the two iPhones of this year, most of the competition's mini phones were larger than Apple's flagship. However, Apple ...

    Long-time Apple users, especially those who juggled their mobile subscriptions between iPhones and devices on competing platforms, have only been all too aware of some lousy logic Apple's iMessage service has been employing when trying to work out where to send texts. Even after moving on to another OS, texts from iOS users meant to go to your number would end up stuck in an iMessage black hole, never reaching you as intended. It sure took long enough, but Apple has now finally made available an online tool for performing iMessage deregistration, mitigating the impact of this issue. ...

    Rumors about Apple's grand plans for sapphire-screened iPhones fell apart in spectacular fashion this year, with the sapphire only ending up on select Apple Watch models (well, when those come out, at least) and Apple’s sapphire partner GT Advanced Technologies filing for bankruptcy. As part of those bankruptcy proceedings, GTAT and its executives have submitted statements with the court, and today one from GTAT COO Daniel Squiller has become publicly available. Within, he tells a tale of a rather one-sided deal with Apple, and the details are certainly far from complimentary towards ...

    It's hard to review an iPad these days. The last Apple products to cross our review desk, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, were significant upgrades that catapulted the company into the realm of the large-format smartphone, while maintaining the ease-of-use and reliability that made the iPhone so popular to begin with. The Apple products that keep Pocketnow running day in and day out are some of the most impressive computers we've ever used, with even our lower-tier MacBook Airs capable of handling very intense video production tasks every day for years without giving up the ghost. In the palm ...

    If the simple fact that you're using an Apple product makes you sleep well at night, without worrying about malware, it's time to change your perspective. WireLurker is a family of Apple malware discovered by the Palo Alto Networks that is capable of infecting both your iOS as well as Mac OS devices.  iOS devices can be infected through infected Mac OS X computers, or by downloading apps to your phone that have been repackaged to contain the malware bit. Its presence has been reported in China, and 467 OS X applications have been reported as infected on the third party Maiyadi App Store ...

    Cloud storage has gained a significant level of popularity lately, and that’s mainly because technology is helping it become seamless. Surely it would’ve been easier if US Carriers wouldn’t have dropped their unlimited data plans, but it’s hard to deny that things “just work” in most of the cloud storage services we see in the market. One of the pioneers of the cloud mentality was Apple with its MobileMe services, though that particular story was so full of horror that the company ended up fixing it and rebranding it to iCloud. Steve Jobs envisioned a service that would ...

    By all accounts, the release of the Apple Watch is still many months away – and to hear the latest rumors, even that anticipated early 2015 start to sales may not be quite so “early.” But eventually, the smartwatch will go up for sale, and based on Apple's reputation alone, it's almost guaranteed to sell like hotcakes. When that happens, though, just how much will you find yourself shelling out for one of these wearables? We've heard rumors talking about the possibility of a sky-high price for the premium gold Watch Edition model, as well a quite-pricy-in-its-own-right steel version, ...

    If you're anything like us when it comes to mobile devices, you end up straddling the line between platforms. Sure, you may be an Android guy when it comes to your personal phone, but maybe you use BlackBerry for work, or you just really prefer the iPad when you're dealing with tablets. In a perfect world, we'd be able to move from platform to platform as easily as we put down one device and pick up another, and while cross-platform cloud services have made things like accessing our documents much more convenient across disparate operating systems, media's been a tougher nut to crack. ...
