    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 ...

    Apple has just announced its press invitations for an event to happen on October 16, and historically this has everything to do with Macs and iPads. If you're wondering what changes are coming to the new iPads, we've heard that they're getting significantly thin, but there's nothing better than a visual demo of what to expect. A very credible Vietnamese source has just leaked some photos of a dummy of Apple's new iPad Air, which we're currently dubbing the iPad Air 2. You'll notice that this tablet is significantly thinner, as the source claims that it's just 7mm thick when compared to ...

    After all the IFA launches last month, not to mention the headline-grabbing debut of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, you might have expected mobile device manufacturers to take a little break, gather their thoughts, and meditate on their strategies for dominating the holiday season. But no, oh no: we find ourselves smack-dab in the midst of another busy period of events. HTC's got its “double exposure” announcement later today, Sony has something to share with us tomorrow, and there's that Oppo N3 launch coming at the end of the month. But between this week's news and that N3 action, there's ...

    Apple's launch of iOS 8 has been met with some polarized reviews. While this is surely a more mature version of iOS 7, legacy devices like the iPhone 4s have nearly been crippled by the update, and on the other hand, a lot of the features are still not fully present, like Continuity for example. If you're wondering just how well iOS 8 is doing, you'll be shocked to know that even Apple doesn't admit good numbers. Apple has just published its iOS numbers, as tabulated by Apple Store visits. You'd assume that the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus would alone boost the numbers of iOS 8 ...

    We're expecting big iPad news from Apple in an October event, with the exact date standing at October 16 based on the rumor mill (if previously-reliable sources are to be trusted). With the fact that we're closing in on that date, it's only natural that we start seeing the pace of the rumor mill pick up. And that's exactly what we've got with a new report from The Michael Report (no, not that Michael), which states that the next-gen iPad Air 2 will supposedly take the designation "world's thinnest tablet," as well as drop the 16GB storage capacity. Supposedly, there'll be a 0.5mm ...

    One of the biggest questions that was left on the table with the launch of the iPhone 6 is its lack of sapphire. We heard significant teasers that Apple would include the technology on its latest smartphones, tablets and wearables, and for the time being the material can only be found on certain elements of the iPhone 6. If you're wondering why this is, it seems that a new twist in the production of sapphire could be to blame. Apple's sapphire partner GT Advanced Technologies has just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. That said, it seems that there isn't much to worry about here. GT ...

    Around this time last year, Apple made its most anticipated iPad upgrades yet: the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. Both were the thinnest, lightest iPads yet, packing more horsepower and better displays than ever before. Rumor has it, this year’s iPad announcement is just weeks away and what we might be looking at is piquing the interests of iPad users all around. As a long time iPad user and having recently departed with my iPad mini with Retina display, I’m definitely looking forward to the announcement. What should you expect? What are we hoping for? Below, I’ve ...

    With all the hype that Apple has been able to create around the Apple Watch, the only thing that's left for the company to achieve is to be able to start selling it. The last time that Apple took six months between a product announcement and a launch was with the original iPhone in 2007, so there is a significant amount of pressure on Cupertino's shoulders. If you're wondering exactly when we should expect the product to reach the market, we've heard a couple of rumors here and there, and today we get some extra confirmation. Analysts have already begun to predict that we shouldn't expect ...

    What do you pay for streaming music? If you said “ten dollars a month,” you're not alone. From Spotify to Google Play All Access, Rdio to Beats Music, that ten dollar price point is easily one of the most popular. But with other services coming in even cheaper, it can be increasingly tricky to stay competitive at that level. That's why one of these players may be planning to significantly cut its rates, but just which one we're talking about may be a little surprising. A new report claims that Apple is working to turn Beats Music from a ten-dollar-a-month service to a more affordable ...

    When is Apple going to introduce its next iPad(s)? Ever since last month's iPhone event, we've been craving launch info on the next additions to Apple's tablet family, and so far we've heard a couple ideas. One date that was floated a couple weeks back was October 21, but that hasn't nicely aligned with subsequent rumors – after all, there's been talk that iOS 8.1 (with Apple Pay support) could arrive on October 20, and it would be weird to see that come in advance of the iPad launch. But luckily for us, now we've got a new date to consider, and it's one that makes a lot more sense in ...

    Each year, Apple brags about the hundreds of new features and changes made to its operating system. The fact of the matter is, most of those changes will go completely unnoticed. It’s like an iceberg – we only see a small fraction of the changes; the rest are buried deep within the OS or simply don’t pertain to us, like new support for languages we’ll never learn. The last two years have been different, however. Last year, iOS 7 brought a much-needed, long overdue facelift to the UI that had gone practically unchanged (minus things like the addition of wallpapers and folders) since ...
