    We've recently heard some reports mentioning the future possible size and launch details of the upcoming Apple iWatch, but this latest bit from the Wall Street Journal -- which is most of the times accurate when it comes to Apple -- seems to contradict to a certain extent the previous Reuters report. Today's report claims that there will be not one, but "multiple versions" of the iWatch. In addition to this piece of information, we're also being teased with the fact that Apple's wearable "will include more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness". The report is based on ...

    Rumors of an upcoming Apple iWatch have been piling up for months, and it seems 2014 may just be the year (if recent reports are to be believed). Today, we're learning of even more details of this upcoming wearable to add on to what we've already heard about -- the device's screen size and launch timeframe have allegedly been exposed, among other details. According to sources of Reuters, Apple is looking to ship 50 million iWatch units within the first year of it being sold. No other wearable has hit this mark quite yet, but because of Apple's brand recognition, this could be a ...

    Even though we received a general rundown of the hottest things that iOS 8 will offer to consumers at its WWDC event, that doesn't necessarily mean that Apple revealed everything at its announcement, or that beta 1 and 2 reveal everything. It's quite common for Apple to cram new features in its full release notes, and its also common for Apple to change its mind about a couple of things in the final release build of its OS updates, which is apparently going to be the case with iOS 8. At the moment iOS 8 beta 1 and 2 have shown us new camera features, like the option to set a timer for your ...

    Apple's crowned jewel for iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite is "Continuity". At the moment the feature isn't really working on the betas that we've tested, but the plan is that you can start something on your iPhone, and then continue it on your iPad or Mac. That said, if you thought that Apple was only planning to support the usual products, it seems that there is more in the pipeline. With the launch of iOS 8 beta 2, Apple also updated OS X Yosemite and even updated the iOS version that runs on the Apple TV. The interesting part here is that the update includes options for Continuity to work on ...

    There are simply too many leaks of iPhone 6 dummy units lately, up to the point that we've chosen to not cover some of them, since hey, they're not the real deal. Still, if you all remember two years ago, famous Taiwanese actor Jimmy Lin became even more famous when he leaked a real model of the iPhone 5 a couple of weeks before its release. If you thought Lin was done with that, you're wrong, as we saw some recent leaks of the real-deal 4.7-inch model in his hands a couple of days ago, and today he strikes again. Lin just posted a photo on Weibo where he's repairing the shattered display ...

    Follow the smartphone market for long enough, and certain things come to be expected: who's going to release a new version of what, when, and so forth. And just as we look forward to a new iPhone (or this year, iPhones) in the fall, we've also come to expect a perpetual legal struggle between certain companies. Apple and Samsung are easily the biggest targets here, and it's rare that one case wraps up before we hear of another one nearing trial. But after all this bickering over patents, could Samsung and Apple finally be learning to live with each other? We've still got a long way to go, ...

    The fact that there was no hardware announced at WWDC 2014 makes Apple's fall launches quite compelling. We were expecting the company to launch the iWatch and some revamp to the iPhone at the event, and at the moment all we have are progress reports. The latest rumors from China are in today, and it gives us a clear picture of what to expect for both the iWatch and the iPhone. When it comes to the iWatch, rumors are slowly getting more detailed. This report mentioned a launch by Q3/2014, and that we should expect to see components and production from Largan, Foxconn, Pegatron, Quanta, ...

    The Apple event for devices is still months away, but the iPhone 6 (in both its incarnations, with different screen sizes) has been rumored, and leaked,  numerous times. However, we're yet to see some solid iPad Air leaks, but this one from today might just represent the start of the leaks to come. Call it iPad 6, the New iPad Air, iPad Air 2, or whatever you like, the pictures above and below claim to depict just that: Apple's iPad Air refresh. At a first glance, not much has been changed. The thing that you will immediately spot is the Touch ID fingerprint scanner that looks to make its ...

    Many of you may not remember the old days of voice command, or even services like Dragon Dictation, which were quite famous years ago. All of these services came from a company called Nuance, which was merely a start-up back then, and which found its biggest break in 2011 by powering Siri. Surely Siri was already a service on its own, but it didn't respond to you like it does today, and Nuance's technology was the missing link to make Apple's Siri what it is today, though things might get a tad difficult for Cupertino very soon. Reports have it that Nuance has been on sale for quite a bit, ...

    Apple may be famous for the products it has launched over the last couple of decades, but one thing that it has also become infamous for, is for the products it has decided not to launch, or even for the technologies it has always been late to adopt. Another thing Apple is famous for, and in this particular manner Steve Jobs mainly, is in attracting some very good talent in order to help him make the best decisions while he ran Apple. One of these talents is famous designer Hartmut Esslinger, which Steve Jobs hired in 1982, and which is still highly respected in the industry. If you're ...

    Apple's next flagship, what we've been referring to as the iPhone 6, has been hotly anticipated throughout multiple leaks. What somehow hasn't managed to leak up until now is that this phone may feature a QHD display, just as the LG G3 does. Taiwanese actor Jimmy Lin, known for his early leak of the iPhone 5c last year, has posted an image to Weibo showing off what's allegedly a live iPhone 6 model, compared to the iPhone 5s. Though we can't say for sure whether Lin's model is indeed authentic, it lines up with what we've seen on previous dummy units and the actor's track record is ...

    Apple allegedly has its best product pipeline in 25 years, and it now seems one of these extraordinary products will be the elusive iWatch. While the name "Apple iWatch" is entirely still a rumor, the fact that the company is working on a wrist-mounted wearable is now not -- an Apple staffer has confirmed that a smartwatch is in the works. In a profile of Cook done by The New York Times, numerous employees of the company were interviewed. Topics ranged from how Apple has changed post-Steve Jobs, all the way to the iWatch. Here's the exact quote: They point to the development of the ...

    The closer we get to Apple's yearly iPhone event, the more and more leaks seem to indicate that there will be two models with two different screen sizes. As we slowly start taking this for granted (until Apple proves everyone wrong, or not), we're even seeing reports and opinions on the pricing for the two upcoming models. Today though we're seeing an iPhone 6 leak, in a set of pictures purportedly depicting a real-life 5.5-inch iPhone 6 physical “dummy” mockup (next to the 4.7-inch version). The space grey version can be seen above, while the champagne gold can be seen below. ...

    For the moment, let's accept as fact that Apple is releasing two sizes of its next generation iPhone later this year, a detail widely rumored and finding support through a number of leaks, but still not full-on confirmed. Assuming Apple goes ahead and does this, what might that mean for how these phones are sold? The 4.7-inch model would presumably be the new default iPhone, replacing the 4-inch 5S, with the 5.5-inch model available as a phablet-like option for users wanting a larger device. It's not a stretch to imagine we're looking at about the same $200 on-contract starting price for ...

    Apple's making sapphire. Or rather, GT Advanced Technologies is handling the production in its Arizona plant, but these materials are destined for Apple products. The only questions, really, have concerned just which devices might end up with sapphire, and what it would be used for. And while it might be nice to see sapphire protecting the displays on all of Apple's upcoming gear, could there really be enough to go around? We've already heard rumors that production issues could limit the availability of certain models, but a new analyst report says we shouldn't be fretting, and claims that ...
