    Apple hasn't found the success it's been looking for with its iPad lineup. These are still the best selling tablets in the world, but they've failed to meet Apple's sales expectations over the last couple of quarters. The company is faced with a tough challenge this year in finding ways to differentiate its beloved tablet, and rumors point to how the company plans to do so. Reports claim that Apple will include a new "anti-reflection coating" in order to give users a better reading experience. Amazon has been mocking the iPad through its ads for years because of how cumbersome it is to ...

    HealthKit was one of the biggest rumors before its announcement at WWDC 2014, and at the same time it's also been one of the major gray areas for the official launch later this year. This is a major area of opportunity, but we haven't really seen any practical use for the service since Apple hasn't really announced a wearable that can track your data. We do know that Apple will try to sell this service to the health sector in various ways, and it seems some work has been done already. New reports claim that Apple is already in talks with major healthcare providers in order to find ...

    Just as we suspected, the iPhone 6 rumors continue to surface. After previously seeing purported pictures of the retail box -- which raised a few questions though, with a safe to assume conclusion that we were looking at a Chinese knockoff, the GooPhone I6 -- we are now seeing, above and below, what is claimed to be a picture of the iPhone 6 backplate. In the image above we can take a close look at the camera, the flash, as well as the microphone on the back, while the picture below seems to show off the back of the device in its entirety. We can't verify the veracity of these iPhone 6 ...

    We've heard some very interesting rumors of what the iPhone 6 might do. One of the most surprising ones is a report that claimed that the Apple logo at the back would glow and provide users with notifications. While this isn't something new for Apple given its way to bring this to its MacBook line-up, we've never seen the company do this with mobile devices, and it seems that history won't change. A leaked batch of iPhone 6 Apple logos was recently caught on camera, and judging by the looks of these, they weren't made to glow. It seems that these logos mimic what we currently see in ...

    There are some substantial changes coming to Apple's next-generation iPhone 6. From a dramatic redesign, to the possibility of two models that are much bigger than the current iPhones we see, Apple is clearly out to address the needs of many consumers today. That said, there are a couple of parts that may change in size, but that will retain aesthetics as much as possible in order to bring that familiar iPhone look that everybody can tell from a distance, and that's part of today's leaks. We get some additional photos of the iPhone 6 front panel, and this time it seems to include all the ...

    We're just a couple of weeks away from the rumored event where Apple might launch its next-generation iPhone 6. We've seen leaks of its design, and we've also seen leaks of some of its technical specifications. Today we get another round at the enhancements we should expect. Rumors point to the iPhone 6 sporting some interesting new hardware. We had heard of the device bringing WiFi 802.11ac to the table, along with NFC, and even new enhancements to Touch ID. Today's rumors agree to these previous claims, but we get some additional details on some extra enhancements. One of these changes ...

    Now that the US government has approved the deal between Apple and Beats, it's time to start seeing what this acquisition was for. Some speculate that the deal is to bring some more culture into Apple's approach to music, and others assume this is to improve the quality of Apple's mobile accessories. Whatever the case may be, we're not seeing any of that yet, as all we find lately is better product placement for Beats on Apple's website. In addition to Apple launching a webpage with all the information of Beats by Dre, today we see that Apple has given its online store a minor update with ...

    One of the biggest issues with any of the iPhones that we've tested, is that it "just works," until it doesn't. Battery life is a big problem with iPhones, where we've seen Apple only grow the size of the battery a few mAh in its seven year existence. Samsung and other companies are even mocking iPhone customers for their need to be plugged to the wall, and it seems that Apple might want to do something about it. New reports claim that Apple is planning to launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 with a 2,100 mAh battery. Previous rumors mentioned that the iPhone 6 was only getting an 1,810 mAh ...

    We've spent the last couple of years seeing two of the biggest technology companies battling each other over patent disputes. What's even more interesting about this drama is that both companies are also partners in various ways as Samsung is a big supplier of Apple's silicone on iOS and Mac products. We've kept you on the loop on how these companies have fought each other inside US courts, but the story is broader outside the country, or so it was. It seems that both Apple and Samsung have decided to end all their patent disputes outside the US. We've already seen how a jury granted Apple ...

    Apple's announcement of HealthKit at WWDC 2014 came with a couple of surprises and some odd disappointments. Most rumors claimed that this was more than just a repository of health information, and actually the platform that would enable Apple's wearable products to make sense. The problem is that Apple hasn't yet announced any wearable for this to happen, though that could change soon. Apple had filed for the HealthKit trademark in the US back in July, and many of us worried that we only saw medical devices being mentioned. Today the company has just filed for the same trademark in ...

    There is a ton of speculation around the possible launch of Apple's next generation iPhone 6. Recent reports claimed that the company couldn't decide on a final date because of the possible delays of the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 variant. Others claimed that it was a strategic move for the phablet to launch until December. More rumors today have given additional credibility to a specific date for a September announcement, and this time it seems final. Credible sources are saying that Apple has already decided on a announcement for the iPhone 6 on September 9th, and with shipments arriving ...

    Apple has a tough challenge in being able to differentiate the iPhone 6 this year. With competing devices like the HTC One (M8), the rumored Galaxy Note 4, and the LG G3, Apple needs more than just another iPhone hitting the market. We've heard diverse rumors pointing to the company using sapphire in order to boost the durability of its offering, but some new official news make that highly unlikely. Apple's sapphire partner, GT Advanced Technologies, has just posted its quarter results and has discussed the current status of its Arizona plant. If you remember, this is the facility that's ...

    Most of the Apple talk lately is focused on the iPhone 6, its two variants, and a possible launch date for each of these this year, but we shouldn't forget that there is also an imminent iPad launch as well. Surely the iPad isn't the best selling Apple product lately as the company has found stagnant sales in the last few quarters, but this could actually be a good thing, as Apple is now forced to find new ways to keep its tablet relevant. New leaks show us that Apple is bringing some new design changes to the iPad Air, and most likely the iPad mini design as well. We already knew about ...

    As we get closer to Apple's rumored launch of the iPhone 6 in September, more rumors continue to point to a separate launch of the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model. Most of these rumors mention that both devices will be almost identical to each other, one being just bigger than the other as we currently see with the premium iPad lineup. Still, until these products are launched, rumors can change dramatically over night and that's what seems to be the case with Apple's new smartphones. Analysts now believe that Apple is planning to launch the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 phablet with a beefier ...

    As we get close to Apple's official release of iOS 8, more and more beta updates keep pouring in for developers. After a couple of weeks of testing, it's clear that there is still a long road ahead for Apple to consider iOS 8 to be final. There are still a lot of features that many of us want to test, like Continuity for example, but that have only begun to arrive in fragments as of today. iOS 8 beta 5 is only reporting some bug fixes and performance improvements for compatible devices. Still, the extensive list of release notes includes new enhancements to HealthKit where you can now ...
