    We're just a few hours away from what we assume to be Apple's last event of the year. So far, we've seen new updates to iOS at WWDC 2014, and we've also seen the new iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch being announced at Apple's event last month. If you're asking yourself what's missing from the puzzle this year, well, actually a lot. We have yet to see new iPads being announced, in addition to certain changes we expect for OS X Yosemite that will benefit iOS users in the Apple ecosystem as well. We could even throw in some Apple TV and iPod updates here as well, but those are a rough ...

    We were expecting two tablets at Apple event this afternoon, and following the company spending some time showing off the new iPad Air 2, it's time for the day's second tablets, as Apple turns the spotlight on its latest pint-sized tablet, the iPad mini 3. Like the Air 2, the new mini is available in three colors this year, adding gold to its options. Screen size remains at 7.9 inches (along with the 2048 x 1536 resolution) and the 5MP camera is back. Physical dimensions are unchanged from the iPad mini 2, and the iPad mini 3 runs the same A7 SoC as the previous generation - no A8X here. ...

    Finally, the moment we've been waiting for is here! After plenty of news about services, software, and OS X, Apple's event has moved into tablet territory. First up, the company is introducing the successor to last year's already-quite-thin iPad Air, the 6.1-mm-thick iPad Air 2. Sure enough, that rumored gold color has arrived, finally giving the iPad line the same color selections as Apple's smartphone lineup. The new tablet's screen is now fully laminated, bonding the touch sensor, glass, and LCD panel itself. Paired with an anti-reflection coating, the iPad Air 2's display should be ...

    We're still waiting on those new iPads, but Apple's press event this afternoon continues to deliver announcement after announcement. We just heard that Apple Pay was going live on Monday, and you can't have Apple Pay without iOS 8.1. So when's that update going to arrive? Apple has confirmed that iOS 8.1 will also arrive on Monday, October 20. Among the features to look forward to in the release of 8.1 is the return of Camera Roll, following its previous removal from iOS. There's also the aforementioned Apple Pay support, as well as new control over app permissions, letting you view and ...

    Apple's presumed iPad launch event is currently underway, leaving us just a few moments away from learning of the iPad Air 2, and possibly also the iPad mini 3. As we wait for Apple to get to those announcements, it's starting us off with a follow-up from last month's iPhone launch, confirming the start of Apple Pay early next week, on Monday, October 20. That's a date we've heard before, so while this doesn't come as a big surprise, we're sure a lot of you iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners have been itching for the chance to try out those new NFC capabilities for yourself and see what this ...

    With the new Nexus hardware announced, it's time for the shortest of breathers before we move right into this week's next big launch, as Apple gears up for tomorrow's press event. A new iPad is practically assured, with the big questions concerning just which model (or models) would take the stage. We'll have our official answer in just about a day, but Apple may have let the cat out of the bag a little early, as the company itself seems to have leaked confirmation that an iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are just about to drop. The company just published its iOS 8.1 user guide for the iPad, and ...

    If I had my way, that headline above would go like this: "Unlikely mutant success meets when-pigs-fly Hail Mary in acid-fueled crazytown showdown." So maybe it's good that I don't have my way (this time). Put more plainly: this is a comparison I never thought I'd have the opportunity to do. If you'd told me, back in 2011, that Samsung's freakazoid phone-tablet hybrid would enjoy enough success to spawn three sequels (and galvanize an entirely new smartphone category in the process), I'd have called you a crazy person. And I'd have called you much worse if you tried to convince me that ...

    Apple's launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have left the media polarized. On one hand, this is Apple's best selling iPhone lineup in history, and on the other hand, the bad publicity by issues like "bendgate" have intended to tarnish the reputation of Cupertino's new product. Still, what matters in every case are the sales figures, and Apple is on the verge of setting another record, and this time in China. Apple began preorders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Friday, and so far, sources claim that Apple has sold a staggering 20 million units. What's more shocking is that the ...

    Apple has already teased that its event on October 16 will be about something that's taken a long time. Many speculate that even though Apple's music event is already history with the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, we might see a revamp to legacy products like the Apple TV and iPods as well. We do see it as highly unlikely, but we're almost certain that this will be Apple's iPad event, and today we learn more about when to expect it. Trusted sources claim that Apple is already shipping mass quantities of a specific product for a launch on October 24. Sadly we don't know what product this is at ...

    Apple's iPad event for 2014 is just a couple of days away, and as is customary with every Apple product, there is a lot of speculation over what Apple will announce. The amount of rumors surrounding a thinner iPad are the strongest, but at a time when every OEM is struggling with a stagnant tablet market, we wonder if Apple will make the mistake of keeping things conservative this year. Watch this week's Top 5 as we discuss our predictions for what to expect for Apple's event this Thursday. We have a feeling that there will be more than just iPads announced at this event. Other rumors ...

    Hankering for a new iPad? You're in luck, as with Apple's next press event just days away, we're almost certain to get news of at least one new iPad model. Most likely to make an appearance is the second-gen iPad Air, a tablet we've heard plenty about in leaks and rumors, as well as managed to recently check out on camera – well, at least a dummy unit. Today we step that up to what seems to be some real hardware, before looking some very well done concept renders. First up are the components, and the most notable one here is the tablet's main logic board. It's a bit difficult to make out ...

    We're just a week a way from an Apple event that we all assume has to do with iPads and iOS 8.1. We've seen some interesting leaks that show iOS 8.1 launching new services like Apple Pay, but it also seems that there could be more under the hood. That same developer that uncovered the Apple Pay leaks has discovered more new stuff to come, and this time it has to do with iPads. At the moment, every single credible source claims that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will not be launched until 2015, and the main reasons point to the fact that Apple prefers to meet the iPhone 6 Plus demand before ...

    It's funny to admit that no matter where you go, anyone that notices that you're using an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus will most likely ask you if your phone has bent. This is to say that yes, "bendgate" was a huge driving force of bad publicity for the iPhone 6 Plus, though you'd think it would be bad enough to affect Apple's demand for the device. Actually, the reality is quite the opposite, and even though Apple hasn't provided any solid iPhone 6 Plus numbers, some credible sources have just detailed its status. According to the Wall Street Journal, the demand for the iPhone 6 Plus is ...

    Two of the best cameraphones out there. Two of the best-designed phones out there (though our own Michael Fisher would like to disagree). How do the HTC Desire EYE and Apple iPhone 6 / 6 Plus compare as far as there internals go, though? That's something our HTC Desire EYE vs iPhone 6 / 6 Plus specs comparison does a fine job of answering. Apple generally hasn't been known to include the highest-end specs in any of its mobile offerings, and that's largely due to the immense hardware/software optimization performed by the company. But, with that warning aside, for the sake of science, ...

    Apple made a big deal about its new Apple Pay service when it announced the iPhone 6. The service shouldn't be out until the next couple of weeks, though we're sure that Apple's iPad event will shed some light on October 16. We still question if this service will take off or follow on Google's footsteps, but today's rumors show that Apple is still full-steam ahead. A developer has just discovered some hidden options for Apple Pay buried within iOS 8.1 beta. We did hear that iOS 8.1 would be the official launch of Apple Pay, though the first beta didn't show any information to validate ...
