    September came and has (almost) gone without the release of new iPads, so we're looking squarely at October for the release of new entries to Apple's tablet lineup – which means it's about time that the rumor train start rolling. Today, a report from Taiwanese site Technews.tw looks to start detailing the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, allegedly one of the upcoming Apple slates. The source states that the Pro will have an upgraded version of the Apple A8 processor found on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the A8X. This naming convention is believable, as the fourth-gen iPad had an Apple A6X processor (and ...

    Yesterday afternoon Apple started with distribution of its iOS 8.0.1 update. Having just looked at a leaked list of bugfixes and improvements, we were happy to see the update already going live, but those good feelings didn't last for long, as users were quick to take to social media to report major new issues being introduced with 8.0.1, especially a near-phone-killing bug that broke cellular radio connectivity. Apple subsequently pulled the plug on the update, but what happens now? In a new statement, the company confirms plans to deliver 8.0.2 in the days to come, as well as provides ...

    Smartphones have been bent before the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Smartphones will be bent after these models are long forgotten. But for the moment, with so many Apple users moving up to larger-screened handsets for what may be the first time ever, the sheer number of reports of bend-damaged hardware is hard to ignore. The good news is that Apple doesn't appear to be leaving its customers hanging, and that even this clearly user-caused damage may be covered under the phone's warranty. The only problem is that there's no hard-and-fast rule for what level of damage Apple will accept and ...

    Apple calls the iSight camera dotting the back of its iPhone "the world's most popular camera," and whether or not you agree with that bit of marketing-speak, you've got to hand it to the company: the iPhone has carried some impressive optics for a few generations now. The iPhone 6 camera boasts an 8-megapixel sensor with a pixel size of 1.5 microns and an aperture of f/2.2. It doesn't offer the fancy optical image stabilization of its bigger sibling, but it does carry a form of digital stabilization that combines four short exposures into one refined end product. There's ...

    Ever since the iPhone 4, Apple's smartphones have carried a reputation for having better-than-average cameras. In 2011, Apple's iPhone 4 rose to become the most popular camera on Flickr – no small feat for any camera, much less a smartphone. And to this day Apple's last four iPhones crowd the Most Popular Cameras in the Flickr Community chart. In order from first to last, those top five cameras are: iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and the Canon EOS Rebel T3i. Per usual, Apple has made the newest cameras even better in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Of the two, the iPhone 6 ...

    If you watched Pocketnow's Moto X vs Galaxy S5 comparison, you'll remember that for a huge swath of the US, Samsung's Galaxy S line is the de facto iPhone alternative. If you're not buying Apple, odds are you're shopping for The Next Big Thing (despite the fact that there's a whole other platform out there, but I digress). Given this iPhone vs Galaxy mindset, it seemed prudent to put the best of Apple up against the best of Samsung to see who came out on top. While our comparisons generally avoid focusing on a "winner," preferring to leave the ultimate decision up to you, I decided to ...

Sure enough, the official release notes mention some of those bugfixes we told you about yesterday, along with quite a few additional improvements. Those include fixes for issues with ...

    Two weeks ago Friday, I was sitting up in bed at 2:50 AM waiting on the flood gates to open. The iPhone 6 pre-orders were about to begin and I needed to make sure I ordered an iPhone 6 Plus before the dreaded backorder prompt appeared. Turns out, I was pretty lucky. After refreshing the Apple Store webpage at least four hundred times, I grabbed my iPad mini and opened up the Apple Store app. I added a 64GB Space Gray iPhone 6 Plus to my cart and finally checked out around 3:40 AM. According to Twitter at the time, I was one of the very first to complete an order. My friend Jason Cipriani ...

    Apple's first smartwatch is coming... eventually. While the company introduced the Apple Watch earlier this month, it will be some time before the wearable is ready for public release, and Apple's been talking about a timetable that would see sales begin in “early 2015.” But just how early is “early?” A new report published by The Information attempts to reveal the Apple Watch's path to market, including missed targets for a 2014 release, and mentions a possible goal for the start of sales: Valentine's Day. Based on our understanding of the Apple Watch – especially the higher-end ...

    Folks, Apple has begun to flex its marketing muscle. Hot off of releasing new TV ads starring The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and artist Justin Timberlake, the company is now turning to the almost-prehistoric print media to continue advertising its new iPhones. Its latest set of iPhone 6 print ads boasts actual-sized reproductions of the two new phones. There's nothing too special about these ads other than the fact that they're accurate representations of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The ad pictured below is pulled from Rolling Stone, though the ad could spread to other magazines ...

    Apple has entered a bit of a new product category with the iPhone 6 Plus this year – sure, it may still be an iOS smartphone, but it's nowhere near the same as the iPhone 6. And it's almost all about the size: the 5.5-inch display opens up a whole new world in terms of productivity possibilities. With a new look comes new competitors, one of which is the Oppo Find 7a. Both being 5.5-inch smartphones, they're the perfect matchup for a comparison. So which is better? Our iPhone 6 Plus vs Oppo Find 7a video has the lowdown. In terms of hardware, the two phones are surprisingly similar on ...

    Apple's release of iOS 8 earlier this month may not have been off to the fastest start in the world, but in the days since we last brought you an update about how quickly users are upgrading, numbers are already on the upswing, no doubt as more users find the time to clear off space on their phones in preparation for the update's sizable storage requirements. But even as more and more Apple users make the plunge, we've got a new release waiting in the wings, and now a new leak attempts to reveal some of the changes to expect in the upcoming release of iOS 8.0.1. It's only a partial list of ...

    Does Apple really need to do a lot of convincing to get people excited about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus? Probably not, at least based on the record sales numbers Apple's reporting. But it surely can't hurt to get the word out there, and to help it accomplish this task, the company has tapped the voice talents of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. After starring in an early set of clips two weeks back on launch day, the duo is back with two more, talking-up the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus's size and camera prowess. To Apple fans who watched the launch event and have been following subsequent ...

    By most accounts, Apple is half-done with its 2014 mobile hardware launches. The other week brought us news of new iPhones and the company's first smartwatch designs, leaving us to wait for word of the next iPads at a separate event – one that some sources suggest could come as soon as next month. But just what would this iPad launch bring us? A few ideas for the new hardware have been mentioned, including a second-gen iPad Air, third-gen iPad mini, and maybe even a giant 12.9-inch model called the iPad Pro. The iPad Air 2's the easy money, but what about the other two? A new report ...

    This year's iOS update is one of the best yet. But as with most things, there are two sides to the story. While iOS 8 brings many long-requested features to Apple's mobile OS, it also brings something most users aren't used to seeing on the platform – honest to goodness bugs and glitches. In droves. Let's take a step back for a second. This update, iOS 8, is long overdue and quite nice. It brings many great things. In particular, Apple added third-party APIs, which it calls Extensibility, to allow more third-party developer and user control over the operating system and, ultimately, the ...
