    Right now, the events spotlight in the tech world is mainly on Google I/O, but soon after that event goes down Apple will be ready to counter with an annual developers' conference of its own. Following today's likely unveil of Android M, Apple will almost certainly continue the trend it has set in the past few years, and go official with the newest version of iOS (likely to be dubbed iOS 9). It seems as that pivotal WWDC 2015 keynote time has been set for sure by the company. Apple is expected to reveal a new streaming music service, Mac OS X 10.11, as well as iOS 9 during the keynote – ...

    Siri's often spoken of in the same context as Google Now, but there's a wide breadth between the features each service offers. The reason being that Google Now (and even Cortana) is more than just voice-powered search, and also delivers tools that are more in line with what you might get from a personal assistant – and the key there is being proactive about delivering you information. We voiced just such a complaint about Siri this time last year as we were first learning about iOS 8, and with iOS 9 expected to be announced at WWDC in the coming weeks, Apple might finally be ready to ...

    Many of the rumors we've heard about iOS 9 have really just focused on telling us that Apple will relax its push of features to the next-generation OS. Apple has a ton of bugs to iron in iOS, and some experts even called iOS 9 as being for iOS what Snow Leopard was for OS X. That said, we don't expect Apple to make this a basic launch either, and today we hear what we should expect. Truste sources claim that even though Apple will announce iOS 9 at WWDC in a few weeks, some of the improvements won't become official until Apple launches new hardware this fall. One of these is Apple's ...

    Even though Google I/O is in our immediate future, it won't be long before Apple gets its own conference started, with WWDC kicking off in early June. Odds are good we'll be learning about both iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 there, and we've already talked a bit about some of the changes that might be present in both, like a move to the Apple Watch's font as the system default. A number of additional changes have been rumored since then, including possible split-screen iPad app support, and now a detailed report attempts to shed some light on even more, with an emphasis on security improvements and ...

    Apple had to spend a lot of time thinking about its user interface when dreaming up the Apple Watch, and one of the decisions it ended up making concerned the introduction of a new font. Rather than stick with the Helvetica Neue that's the current system font for both iOS and OS X, Apple chose a typeface it calls San Francisco for the Apple Watch font, a version of which you can see below. Intended to be extra legible at even small sizes, San Francisco made plenty of sense for the smartwatch's tiny screen, but a new rumor claims the font will be finding a more prominent role on larger ...

    We're at least 4 months away from Apple's World Wide Developer Conference, where the company usually shows us its next version of both its desktop and mobile operating systems, and another 8 months away from a possible launch. Many of you may consider Apple to be conservative when it comes to the visual aspect of both operating systems, but aggressive features like Continuity and Hand-off are still not on the radar of any of its competitors. That being said, it seems that the company is planning to settle down for the next launch. Even though Apple has been famous for offering the most ...

    The week is nearly over, and despite what rumors from last Friday would have us believe, it doesn't look like we're going to see the public release of Apple's iOS 8.1.3 update. So what happened? Did someone get their wires crossed and instead that news was supposed to be about the 8.2 beta we saw devs receive? Maybe not, as today word arrives of a new 8.1.3 build that's in testing, as well as some early work towards iOS 9. Remember how we heard that Apple has tasked its retail employees with helping it do some real-world testing of iOS 8.1.3 before the update went wide? Well, evidence ...
