If you recently fired up the Facebook application on your iPhone or Android-powered device you probably noticed that there are some welcome changes. The overall design has been tweaked for better display and readability and the new changes affect both the ways posts are displayed as well as images.
First of all photos being displayed are up to three times larger, depending on their original size. Couple that together with the fact that posts will now entirely fill your screen, from edge to edge, when viewing and you’ve got a rather fresh look. In addition, browsing [...]
Back in early April, we got a close-up look at the silicon behind Apple’s latest generation of A5 chips, then just arriving in the new AppleTV refresh. Decapping the processor revealed some very interesting details, like how this supposedly single-core variant of the A5 was a dual-core component with one side disabled, or how Apple’s chip was now being produced on a 32-nanometer Samsung process. It turned out these new chips were also the same ones being used in the WiFi-only iPad 2 as it’s being currently manufactured, except with both cores switched-on. Compared to [...]
Skype is an excellent way to keep in touch with your friends, co-workers and family especially if you’re using it over WiFi or an unlimited data plan, resulting in free Skype-to-Skype calls. If you have the application installed on your iOS device, you might want to update to the latest version.
Open up the iTunes App Store on your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or iPad and install the refresh. It brings a new feature: the ability to move own video preview when in a call. Additionally, the app now auto restarts if unexpectedly shut down, accessibility has been improved, [...]
While Spotify on the iPhone was recently updated with 320kbps streaming option and some other improvements in the fresh 0.4.24 version, users on Android are eagerly waiting for a “major” update — or any update, really — and so do iPad users.
Of course you can run the iPhone app on your iPad but that’s half the experience and if you’re a music enthusiast and have an iPad, this should be something to get you through the (already long) waiting. A Swedish engineer posted the above image to Instagram, claiming that it is a beta version of [...]
Leading-up to Apple’s announcement of the 2012 iPad, there was plenty of speculation flying around about just what processor might find itself at the heart of the tablet. Coming off the dual-core A5, there were rumors galore that Apple’s next system-on-a-chip would be something like a quad-core A6. Instead, we ended up with the tweaked A5X dual-core component. Today we take a look at some very close-up analysis of one of Apple’s latest chips, and hopefully it can give us some insight into what directions Apple may be headed in for the next iPhone’s [...]
Those who are Apple fans, or simply follow the tech industry, need no introduction when it comes to John Sculley, Apple’s former CEO who decided to come on-board as CEO and help the late Steve Jobs “change the world” instead of selling “sugar water” for the rest of his life while at PepsiCo.
In an interview with The Economic Times, the ex-CEO, now 73, said that “Apple has an extraordinary executive team” and he sees “many good years ahead” for the Cupertino-based company. With regards to the tablet market, Sculley, an iPad [...]
Watch this week’s iReview as we talk about all that’s cool and not so cool inside the world of Apple’s iOS devices. In today’s show we begin by talking about our coverage, which includes our full review of Apple’s New iPad, our recent comparison video between it and the iPad 2 and even Apple’s first iPad, and Michael Fisher’s editorials surrounding this new tablet. We later have a look at IGN’s recent benchmarks where they show that Apple’s A5X and even their old A5 beats NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 in graphics. We then go through all [...]
If you’ve never owned a tablet, there’s no device that we could recommend more than Apple’s New iPad. We rarely give any product we review a full score of 5 stars out of 5, so there’s no mistaking that this is simply one of the best tablets you can purchase at the moment. No product is perfect though, and Apple’s past versions of the iPad are also good choices to pick from. With Apple’s recent decision to sell their New iPad along with last year’s iPad 2, and with the ease that you can find the First-Gen iPad on eBay for a good price, choices [...]
Regardless if you are using a PC or a Mac, if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you occasionally need to use Apple’s iTunes application to sync and update software (if you manage your libraries with something else).
A new version of iTunes has been released and, as usual, it is always good to have the latest one installed. It “fixes several issues that may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, and syncing photos to devices”. Additionally, it “addresses an issue where some iTunes interface elements are [...]
Watch this week’s iReview as we go through all the cool and the not so cool inside the world of Apple’s iOS devices. In today’s show we go through the New iPad’s sales results after just a couple of days of being launched. We later talk about some of the great apps that already support it’s new Retina Display. We then go through all our week’s coverage on the New iPad, including the reasons why we recommend the Verizon iPad over the AT&T model. We talk about your possibility to jailbreak it, since we know many of you are already waiting. We end [...]
When Apple introduced the New iPad on the 7th of March they also unveiled iPhoto for both the iPad and the iPhone, an application which allows you to browse, edit and share photos from your tablet or phone.
According to unofficial information allegedly coming from Apple, the Cupertino company’s new application hit the 1 million user mark in less than ten days — probably by March 17. The numbers represent unique users and not downloads and, given the fact that the app goes for $4.99 in the iTunes App Store, the figures are quite enchanting. If you want to experience [...]
A bold move from Apple back with the release of the first-generation iPad, was to allow iPhone apps to run on it. Apps would box-into the display and allow you to even zoom into them to take over the iPad’s full screen. Sadly, the problem was that zooming-in would turn any app into an old Nintendo 8-bit game show full of pixels. Apple’s launch of the New iPad has changed that. You’ll notice in our following video that if your iPhone apps have been enhanced to support the iPhone’s Retina Display, zooming them into the New iPad’s Retina Display will give you [...]
One of the most persistent rumors surrounding Apple’s next-generation iPad is that this release will mark Apple moving up to a much higher density Retina display for the tablet. Supposedly, the display would have a resolution of 2048×1536, doubling both the horizontal and vertical pixel counts of the iPad 2’s 1024×768 screen for an effective quadrupling of the total number of pixels. Now, that aspect of the tablet’s design seems all but confirmed, upon the discovery of a screen component matching the rumored specs.
MacRumors got its hands on what was [...]
It’s official. Apple has set a date for what’s sure to be the most important tablet announcement of 2012: the unveiling of the third-generation iPad. The coming week will bring a flurry of media anticipation and commentary, with some retrospectives on the iPad’s legacy, and speculation on what’s to come.
Before the inevitable lines start forming at Apple stores around the country, though, we thought we’d take a look at some changes we’d like to see in the next iteration of the iPad’s OS. Let’s [...]
With Apple’s next generation iPad just a couple of hours away, one of our biggest sources of speculation has to do with its biggest part the screen. Some believe that the device will double its pixels in order to provide a similar “retina display” experience that we found on the iPhone 4, and others feel that Apple will simply bump the screen resolution to support 1080p.
Sadly the only tool we have against speculation is history, and so far Apple’s move in doubling the pixels of the iPhone 3GS from 320×480 at 163 ppi to 640×960 at 326 ppi [...]
Surely Spring is in the air, but Apple has done a great job in making the world look forward to “one more thing” on this season, and it’s their iPad refresh. For the past years, the iPad has signified the tablet that every customer wants to have and that every competitor wants to beat. There’s a lot of speculation over what to expect on the next generation iPad, so let’s start with our Top 5 iPad 3 Killer Features We Anticipate to get. Whether Apple names it the iPad 3 or the iPad HD, there’s a lot of things we all want, and then there are the things [...]
Apple’s March 7th event is currently rolling and we thought you’d like to know that they’ve just confirmed the availability of iOS 5.1 to users starting today. It’s kind of weird to see Apple roll the update without ever reaching a developer GM candidate, but after so many weeks in beta, it was about time. At the moment we’ve got details about Siri now being able to speak in Japanese to all iOS 5.1 customers.
Sadly Apple’s keynote didn’t provide any additional details on what iOS 5.1 will bring. With so many battery life complaints on [...]
The New iPad is already out there and if Verizon is your favorite carrier you are able to grab one. The Amazon Kindle Fire is one of the most popular Android tablets on the market and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Samsung is also a 4G LTE-enabled choice on Big Red.
We’re putting the latest Android addition to Verizon’s tablet line-up, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, against the aforementioned alternatives. We’re taking a look at form factors — whether you want to go with a large, 9.7/10-incher, a smaller 7.7-inch dimension or the smallest size of 7-inches on the [...]
Apple has a conference call scheduled for today, March 19, 2012 starting at 6:00AM PDT (9:00AM EDT) where Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, and Peter Oppenheimer, the company’s CFO, will “announce the outcome of the Company’s discussions concerning its cash balance”.
Apple has a lot of money; according to the last earning’s report, somewhere around the $100 billion mark, but the Q4 report should give you more details in case you missed it. With the New iPad, upcoming exciting products like the new iPhone or even computers (desktop or notebook) as well as [...]
Apple’s next iPad is finally here, and for those of you Apple users who prefer living outside the walled garden, work’s already well underway on the first public jailbreak for the tablet. The iPhone Dev Team recently put up a new blog post outlining where current efforts lie, and the situation is definitely looking promising.
Right now, only Apple gear based on older chipsets has an iOS 5.1 jailbreak available for it, and even that’s semi-tethered. As for the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and 2012 iPad, there’s no public solution available; what about private? [...]
$445 Amazon credit is what the giant is willing to offer you if you trade in your old iPad 2 with 64GB of storage but the offer differs from one model to the other. However, if you want to keep it Apple-only, the Cupertino-based company’s Reuse and Recycle Program could also interest you.
Suppose your iPad 2 is in top condition, no scratches, dents or engraving and the battery is still in good shape, you’ll get anywhere between $205 and $320, depending on the model you own. As with the case of Amazon who will give you Credit, Apple is going to send you an Apple Gift [...]
