    This has been a very interesting year for smartphone technology. Seven years ago we would’ve never thought that smartphones would be as big as they are today, nor that we’d have better display resolution on our phones, than we do on the average television set. This year 2K displays, waterproof technology, stereo speakers, aluminum, and even the emerging LTE Advanced are the new thing, even though only a few smartphone manufacturers are pulling most of these off. After seven years, I finally decided to switch the iPhone as my daily driver because of all these trends. Surely my choice ...

    Love it or hate it, iPhone day is iPhone day. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and Apple did what it can do best, which is try to sell its new products to you through its keynote address. Today we saw the company announce the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two devices which were highly leaked all throughout the year. We also saw Apple announce new services like Apple Play in order to address the mobile payments sector, one that hasn't taken off since its inception under Google's leadership. And yes, there was "One more thing," the Apple Watch, which we did expect to ...

    Today's Apple event showed the company coming around to certain technologies it had actively avoided in years past: maybe the most notable among those was the inclusion of NFC support in the two new iPhone models, as well as its Apple Watch wearable. Following the big announcements, we have some time to start looking more closely at all this new hardware, and as we do so we're picking up on some other pertinent details. Another tech Apple is finally giving some attention is wireless charging, and we see such support confirmed for the Apple Watch – though not in a way that many fans of ...

    The new iPhones are here; earlier today, Apple officially launched both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and while we're tempted to start calling these the "big" and "little" new iPhones, that's a bit a misnomer, as compared to previous generations, both new Apple smartphones soundly fall in that same "big" category. Size may be the most obvious factor separating these two iPhones, a consideration that spills over into categories like screen resolution, but that's not the only difference between the two. To help you with an at-a-glance breakdown of some of the key iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ...

    Apple just got done launching the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch, and its Apple Pay service – sure, no new tablets, but all things considered, more than enough content from a launch event to keep us happy. Amidst all those announcements of new products and systems came some news that's going to be very relevant for you Apple users who aren't quite ready to shell-out the cash for this new hardware, as Apple shared its plans for the wide release of iOS 8. Beginning a week from tomorrow, September 17, Apple will release iOS 8 for existing iPhone and iPad models. Supported hardware ...

    "One more thing..." Those words are music to an Apple fan's ears. In years past they've brought us some of our favorite Apple launches and today's no different, as the company introduces us to its brand new wearable, the Apple Watch; no "iWatch" here. The Apple Watch features a flexible Retina-quality sapphire display, sensing not just touch, but force as well. Navigation is also possible by means of the Digital Crown on the side, for convenient scrolling. Tapping in on the crown will bring up your list of apps to launch. Underneath, the Apple Watch features an array of LEDs and ...

    Apple just announced its latest iPhone models, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Among the laundry list of hardware features just confirmed for these two phones is NFC support, Apple's first foray into the tech on its smartphones. With its arrival, Apple's finally ready to get into the mobile payment game, launching its Apple Pay system. Apple Pay lets users add payment cards to Passbook with their phones' cameras, securely storing your data. It supports Visa, Master Card, and American Express, and a number of big-name banks are similarly on board. Beyond tap-to-pay at retail locations, ...

    Today's the day, everyone. After months of anticipation, speculation, and leaks, we have it just the way we like it – we have a general idea of what to expect from the Cupertino company, but the launch is still shrouded in mystery. The event today isn't just limited to members of the press, as there's a full Apple iPhone 6 event live stream and many other ways of learning about the announcements as they arrive. The best way to get your Apple fix today is through the company's own live stream, which should be going live at the link at the bottom of this post just a bit before the event ...

    One of our favorite fitness platforms is Jawbone's, as the software is well-refined – even if you don't like the UP24, you may still like the companion software. That's why we're glad today to hear that a Jawbone Pebble app is in the works, as are companion apps for a plethora of other platforms. Let's talk about Pebble first, as that's the one we're hearing the best confirmation on. In a statement, the company had this to say: "we're incredibly excited that Jawbone is writing a Pebble app that lets our users enjoy great activity tracking and do more with their Pebbles." So this app is ...

    Love it or hate it, tomorrow is probably one of the biggest days of the year for the smartphone market. Apple may not be the biggest smartphone seller in the world, but the world's most popular smartphone has belonged to Apple almost every year, since its inception in the summer of 2007. There are a ton of rumors of what to expect for Apple's September 9 event, so let's try to place all these rumors into perspective, as it seems that Apple is launching more than one product tomorrow. iPhone 6 Rumors claim that Apple is planning to change everything all over again when it comes to the ...

    We've criticized the approach that many OEMs have taken with tablets and phablets because many have decided to simply increase the display size, and very few have done a smart job at giving you an added level of usability through it. Apple and Samsung have both done an amazing job with their iPad and Galaxy Note lineup, but with the rumors of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, you'd wonder how Apple is planning to approach its first phablet. Developer Steven Throughton-Smith recently decided to modify Apple's iOS simulator in order to portray what apps would look like on a 5.5-inch display and 2208 x ...

    We are just one day away from Apple's event where we expect the company to launch the iPhone 6. If you've been following the rumors over the last couple of weeks, you'd think the iWatch wouldn't make the cut until a future event, and it turns out that that might be wrong. New leaks claim that the iWatch will be announced tomorrow as well, but it's not until today that we get to see what it looks like. For the last couple of months, all we've seen are concept designs of the iWatch. Today we get the first leaked photos of the device's schematics, and even an extra photo of what is reported ...

    At this point, it's looking pretty likely that Apple will have iWatch news for us at its Tuesday event, regardless of whether or not the wearable is due for an immediate retail release (and things have been leaning towards “not”). Assuming that we do indeed get to this see new smartwatch, what software will be running on it? Not Apple code – that's obvious – but what of third-party support? After all, we critique these existing wearable platforms based on their app selections, so surely we'll be looking at Apple's in the same light, and so far there hasn't been a lot of talk about ...

    An interesting question came up on the Pocketnow Weekly last week from Patrick Webb, which was actually addressed on the air. All the same, it seemed a highly debatable topic, so let’s talk about it. The question basically addressed the fundamental difference between the product development philosophy between the two biggest OEMs on the planet – Apple and Samsung. Apple has a grand total of 4 “New” devices that you can buy today. That number will change in a few days, but for now, if you were to walk into a store and ask for the latest Apple device, you would be presented with 4 ...
