The company's latest smartphone was iPhone 4, that is widely praised for its hardware as well as software. Apple's portable devices are powered by iOS mobile operating system. Read our Apple coverage for the latest iPhone news, reviews and videos:

    It's well into year four of the Samsung vs. Apple patent war and we're still centered upon the initial case that was filed by Apple and resulted in Samsung having to pay near $1 billion in damages. Samsung has since made repeated appeals at different claims, hoping to overturn some, if not all of the damages. It's won once and has taken off a $380 million chunk of the penalty, but there was still more than half a billion on the tab. Today, we found out that the US Patent and Trademark Office may be rejecting a key Apple patent that served as the foundation of a lot of the remaining ...

    With exciting new wearables on the horizon like Motorola's second-gen Moto 360 or Samsung's first round-screened smartwatch, the model we just saw it confirm as the Gear S2, it's easy to lose sight of this year's most successful wearable to date, the Apple Watch. At least, we're a couple months removed from the smartwatch's retail debut at this point, and initial problems with availability have largely found themselves resolved. Back when things got started, Apple attempted to manage demand through a regimented appointment system for try-on demonstrations in its stores. And while we ...

    Apple isn't only famous for its gadgets, but also for its customer service. The Apple Store Genius Bar is well known for helping consumers address problems, even for Apple products that were built a decade ago. The same goes AppleCare+, Cupertino's extended warranty service, which we now hear will extend its availability as well. It seems that Apple and BestBuy have just partnered to sell AppleCare+ on Best Buy stores starting September 14th, which is apparently just ahead of the launch of the iPhone 6s. These news are rather weird though, as Best Buy is notorious for offering its own ...

    Even though Apple has never been famous for wanting to start a spec race with any competitor, the company did pioneer certain technologies that Android OEMs are still in the process of adopting. 64-bit processors would be a clear example of this, but we still debate how well Apple takes advantage of features like this one in particular. Many of us are curious as to how Apple plans to address this with the iPhone 6s, and today we learn more about it. It seems that an iPhone 6s prototype was recently benchmarked by Geekbench, and even if this is not a final product, it does provide some ...

    It's nearly time for Apple to introduce its latest hardware, and if the rumors about a possible September 9 event are to be believed, Apple could be prepping one pretty big set of announcements, bringing us not just its new iPhones but also new iPad hardware. But just which iPads might show up? Last month we checked out a rumor claiming that Apple wasn't quite ready to give us an iPad Air 3, and that instead would be coming out with a new iPad mini and introducing the jumbo-sized iPad Pro. Well, we're still not sure if the time is finally right for the fabled iPad Pro to make its debut, ...

    Just as Apple has famously overused words like magical, innovative, and revolutionary when describing its own products, Samsung is pretty fond of calling its flagship handsets each year "The Next Big Thing." While that's usually a marketing slogan reserved for its tremendously successful Galaxy S series, this year's Galaxy Unpacked event may have been a better time to break out that boisterous title. Not only did we see the Galaxy Note 5 this Thursday morning, but Samsung also introduced the Galaxy S6 edge+, a phone that's even bigger than the syllable count of its name. It's packing ...

    Apple filed suit against Samsung back in 2011, claiming that 25 products from the Korean OEM infringed patents it owned. Counterclaims were filed. Suits were thrown all across the map from Korea to Japan to Australia. Battles were won and lost on both sides. Both sides appeared to have some crack lawyers. It wasn't before August 2012 that the root case in all of this mess, dubbed "Apple I," was sorted out with a $930 million award to the Cupertino tech company. Samsung appealed a part of the ruling this year that related to $400 million of the total damages. Today, the Federal Circuit ...

    Even though Apple has seen a lot of success lately with the iPhone, the iPad has been a different story. iPad sales have been on decline for the last couple of quarters, making us wonder what Apple will do next. We thought Cupertino would come up with new consumer-oriented ideas, but instead we see a focus on business. An extensive article by The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple has partnered with as many as 40 tech companies in order to help raise the popularity of the iPad in business. Apple has partnered with small companies like Xero, Revel Systems and ServiceMax to collaborate on ...

    There are plenty of healthy ways of combining mobile technology with our sexual habits: be it through a sexual fitness tracking device, an app that codifies a sexual consent contract, — handy for California users who want to recognize the state's laws on affirmative consent — or even mobile consumption of porn (smartphones have become the most used medium to view those videos). Nearly nine out of ten US adults have sexted at least once, according to a Drexel University survey. And there's a certain ring flash from Lenovo worth chuckling about, but hey, we're not judging. All these ...

    We've been tracking some major bugs with Apple Music as it has rapidly grown its user base. But while plenty of attention has been on the streaming music platform and its viability (much less the viability of the whole streaming industry at-large), we can't forget that the iPhone holds a multitude of features. Some of them weren't intended to be exploited for jailbreaking purposes. It seems that Apple has gotten on the case with the iOS 8.4.1 update. If you're an Apple mobile device user and haven't gotten the rundown of what was patched for Apple Music yet, here's the changelog as it ...

    Apple has allowed users to install Windows on the Mac for years now, through a service called Boot Camp. This allows you to dual boot Windows when needed, and the experience is rather pleasant, given how simple it is to make a Mac feel like if was made to run Windows. Each new version of Windows requires an update to the service, and Apple has corresponded today. Apple has just launched Boot Camp 6, an update that now supports Windows 10 to run on the Mac. Boot Camp 6 also provides updates to Apple's drivers, which will allow Windows 10 to support additional Mac features features like USB ...

    One of Apple's most praised features for iOS 9 is also something that only those that own an iPad Air 2 can enjoy, and it's Split View multitasking. Those who bought the iPad mini 3 were highly disappointed, and specially when both tablets share almost identical specifications in everything but their RAM. Apple might have noticed the disappointment, and it seems the company will do something about it. Files within OS X El Capitan now indicate that the developers will be allowed to test "Responsive design mode" with the iPad mini 3. That isn't a guarantee that iPad mini 3 hardware will ...

    Okay, before you scroll like mad down to the source link, please, at least let us have a chance to give some context for you. Michael Fisher is known for complaining about how devices that support Micro-USB Type-C will devilishly decline his old Type B cables. But the convenience of not having to recklessly damage your non-reversible Micro-USB jack or port (in committing the crime of plugging in your charger in the dark) is there. And a firm called Codistas has answered to this demand by creating a reversible Type B port. The magic Codistas worked into the "Micro-Flip" connector is ...

    Even though iOS is famous for its simplicity, it's also infamous for how many steps are required to fulfill an action. We've followed continues rumors of Apple's plan to bring Force Touch technology on its new line of smartphones, but we wondered if this would only confuse users, just as it has with the Apple Watch. New sources claim that this is actually the other way around. It seems that Apple's plan with Force Touch on the iPhone is to simplify the user experience and provide new shortcut options. For example, a Force Touch on Maps will apparently launch navigation, on Music it may ...

    Apple has had an amazing track record with its sales of the iPhone 6. The company has broken every single sales record it held in the past in just a few weeks of sales, and it even took over the Chinese market for a brief stint. Reports claim that Apple is preparing for significant growth the iPhone 6s, but analysts predict otherwise. KGI has gained a significant amount of fame for the accuracy of its Apple predictions. Today the company claims that the iPhone 6s might not be the success that Apple is predicting for two major reasons, out of which only one is in Apple's control. On one ...

    The week of September 7 -- with a possibility of September 9 -- is what the latest rumors talk about with regards to Apple's upcoming event. Of course, nothing's certain until we see press invites going out, and, until then, we have to rely on various reports and leaks, like this most recent iPhone 6s assembly leak in the form of a video. When it comes to the iPhone 6c, things aren't clear at all, with so many conflicting rumors hitting from all directions. Last we heard about the iPhone 6c was last week when a report claimed we won't see the phone until the second quarter of 2016 (after ...

    If the recent rumors are true, we’re pretty much just a month away from Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus combo. We know Cupertino is out to build a ton of them in order to meet demand, so manufacturing had to begin quite early this year. The cool thing about that is the amount of supply chain leaks that Apple has historically been terrible at controlling, and today we get more. A new video of the display assembly of the iPhone 6s has emerged, and it gives additional credibility to the previous leaks we saw in photos last week. We see the same cut out in the ...

    Even though most of the rumors have been focused on a possible iPad Pro to be launched later this year, we've also kept a close eye on Apple's plan to revamp its aging iPad mini. Apple has kept the current design for three generations now, something odd coming from Cupertino's typical two-year revamp cycle. We saw this particularly with the iPad Air 2, and as some iPad mini 4 leaks have claimed, that's exactly what Apple plans to do here. Today we land a new batch of leaks of the iPad mini 4 in 3D CAD drawings, and if looks were everything, this gives us more solid data with regards to ...

    These next several weeks are going to be big ones for new smartphone launches. Samsung Unpacked is next Thursday, and then we've just got a couple weeks to go before IFA rolls around and we look forward to the next wave of hardware announcements. After that, we've been expecting Apple to show off its latest iPhone models sometime in September, but so far we haven't been able to narrow that window down by much. Apple's yet to make anything official, but a fresh rumor out this afternoon attempts to give us an early heads-up before Apple sends out its own invites, claiming that this year's ...

    Apple has been on a roll with its beta updates for iOS 9, watchOS 2 and OS X El Capitan, so much so that beta 5 reached the desktop variant earlier than the rest. Today Apple has stepped its game up with beta 5 for iOS 9 and watchOS 2 in the case of the developer preview, and even the third public beta for iOS 9, and the list of changes are significant. In the case of watchOS 2, Apple hasn't really pushed any significant updates in the past, but today it gets two new features. First you'll notice that you can now select how long the display remains active, but only with two options that ...

    Apple CEO Tim Cook recently stated “We’re not reading your email. We’re not reading your iMessage,” in addition to claiming that “If the government laid a subpoena to get iMessages, we can’t provide it. It’s encrypted and we don’t have a key. And so it’s sort of — the door is closed.” The question is if it's really as secure as he claims. Nicholas Weaver, a computer security researcher at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkley, wrote a very interesting article that claims otherwise. Surely the FBI would need a warrant to tap your information, but ...

    Even though Apple championed the digital music era for years, its reluctance to adopt a music streaming model has clearly taken a toll. Cupertino's response with the launch of Apple Music has still not proven to be as good as Spotify, the service it pretty much copied and is trying to defeat. That said, the company doesn't seem far from defeating it either, and today we learn more. Apple's Internet services SVP Eddy Cue has just told USA Today that Apple Music has 11 million trial members after a month of being in the market. Two million of these users signed up for family plans as well, ...

    This year, WWDC brought word of plenty of new developments for Apple platforms: OS X, iOS, and even Watch OS – and for an Apple dev conference, that's just what we'd expect. What was a little less expected was the news we got about Apple apps for Android users, and in addition to the Android Apple Music app that's slated to arrive sometime this fall, we also saw the introduction of the Move to iOS app that Apple intends to help Android users transition over to its ecosystem. But could Apple have even grander Android ambitions beyond this software? There's a strong chance it could, as we ...

    Apple's challenge to make its Apple Music service hotter than the likes of Spotify does require some unique tactics, and we've seen a few lately. This is an on going business though, and today we learn that Cupertino has a few extra tricks up its sleeve. The first is that Dr. Dre's new Album, "Compton," will be an Apple Music exclusive. It's been a crazy 16 years since his last album, and given the fact that his "Detox" music project never delivered, Dre promises that this new album will be worth it. It should reach the service tonight, just in time for the release of the film "Straight ...
