    When Apple released iOS 6 we knew that YouTube will go missing -- and it's been removed since Beta 4 -- alongside Google Maps, but Mountain View was quick to react and released a dedicated application which only supported the iPhone and not the iPad. Then then iPhone 5 came along and the app was displaying black bars at the top and bottom of the larger screen with larger resolution but all of these are sorted out now. The new version of YouTube not only adds support for the iPhone 5 -- getting rid of the black bars and displaying nice, full-screen videos -- but it now also supports Apple's ...

    Yesterday Apple announced that the iPhone 5 will become available this month in 50+ additional countriesand now it's time for Cupertino's iTunes online store to make its way to the same number of markets. Russia, Turkey, India, and South Africa are joining other regions in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean. The iTunes Store is now accessible in 119 countries for those who want to purchase content like music while more than 700,000 applications in the online market are available in 155 countries for iPhone and iPad users. Apple also just ...

    With 2012 rapidly running low on remaining days (only 35 to go), you had better believe that you're about to start seeing a ton of year-end lists everywhere you go online. We'll be having a number of such posts in the coming weeks, as we think back on what 2012 meant for smartphones and tablets, but I though I'd start things off early by recounting some of the biggest blunders of the year. Everyone's experience with smartphones is different; maybe you've been especially upset with your carrier for not being timely with the updates you were expecting, or perhaps you had a particularly hard ...

    According to the latest numbers released by Gartner for the third quarter of 2012, Android is leading the OS competition with more than 70%, followed by a distant Apple iOS and its close to 14%. Despite these figures Apple has managed to be the undisputed leader of Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping, according to an IBM research. Overall, online sales grew year-on-year 17.4% on Thanksgiving Day and 20.7% on Black Friday; out of all these, mobile consumers accounted for 16.3%. Apple has managed to top the charts with the iPad and the iPhone, as follows: the iPad accounted for 9.8% ...

    This is one of those rumors we've seen in the past, like the one where Samsung reportedly terminated its supply contract with Apple or the one concerning the alleged 20% price increase the South Korean manufacturer imposed for processors. Today's rumor refers to batteries and the report comes from China Business News. It claims that Apple has to turn to its alternative battery manufacturers -- Amperex Technology Limited and Tianjin Lishen Battery -- for the iPad (and MacBook Air) after Samsung reportedly halts supply. However, previous reports were all debunked and information denies ...

    Apple's online Store might be down for the moment and it's probably because of the Black Friday deals which include, alongside iPads, computers, accessories and iPods. Keep on refreshing and you might get lucky! While an unlocked iPhone 5 is still not available from Apple -- and thus no discounts here -- you might want to take a look at the reduced iPad prices if you're in the market for an Apple tablet. The iPad With Retina Display -- that's the newest, "iPad 4" -- has been discounted by $41, $51, or $61, depending on the storage option. You can get it for $458, $548, or $638 for the 16-, ...

    It's nearly here: Black Friday. That horrendous questionable "holiday" tradition wherein hundreds of thousands of Americans, fresh from giving thanks for their blessings and good fortune over massive piles of food, flood the streets to acquire more (material) blessings by spending as little of their good fortune as possible. Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year for a very good reason: retailer discounts are often outrageous, and locations open absurdly early on this day-long celebration of unbridled capitalism. The media has a field day covering these early-morning ...

    Yesterday, about 24 hours ago, we reported that Nokia has released its -- now rebranded -- HERE maps for iOS, making it available for iPhone and iPad. Today, 24 hours later, the application is already the fourth application in the top free iPhone app list on iTunes, way above popular titles like Pandora, Spotify, Twitter, or even some Apple apps. After iOS 6 removed Google Maps from the system, users of the iPhone 5 -- as well as previous version of the iPhone and iPad that were updated to iOS 6 -- were left with Apple's own maps and some alternatives proposed by Apple itself after the ...

    With Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) just days away, the 2012 holiday shopping season is about to take off in force. Whether you're shopping for friends or family, there are bound to be a few electronic gadgets on your list. Will you end up buying just what your gift recipients had been hoping for, or will your efforts miss the mark a little? If you're in the US and shopping for a kid this year, it's looking like Apple's iPad is going to be the gift to beat. Nielsen's latest survey figures take a look at what electronics six-to-twelve-year-olds in the US are itching to get their fingers ...

    The Here maps were announced by Nokia last week and we knew to expect an iOS iteration, among others. It appears that the application is now available in the iTunes App Store for both the iPhone and the iPad. When Apple's CEO Tim Cook apologized for the poor experience in iOS 6, he offered some alternatives available in the App Store until Apple's own mapping solutions become what they should have been. Here maps by Nokia is such an alternative mapping solution (now that Google Maps is no longer the default and a new iteration is yet to arrive) and, according to the description, it brings ...

    "Shorten your topic list," they said. "The show won't run as long," they said. An hour and a half later, another lengthy episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is ready for your listening enjoyment. And make no mistake: we could have talked for another 40 minutes at least. That's not because it's been a huge news week, but because our discussion topics are dense and detailed. Topics like phone reviews, new platforms, and 1080p screens. Subjects like GPS navigation, wide-angle smartphone cameras, and whether Google should become a wireless carrier. The merits and shortcomings of the Lumia ...

    It's been almost a month since Apple introduced the iPad mini and the fourth generation iPad; the initial WiFi-only variants were selling rather well, according to Apple, which was quick to brag about three million units over the first weekend of sales (starting November 2), double the previous first weekend record of 1.5 million for the iPad in March. Those who ordered the Cellular models should get them soon (some elite few already got them) but if you didn't pre-order yours you can pick one up, either the iPad mini or the fourth generation iPad, from AT&T and Sprint. Both carriers ...

    Following Apple's announcement of the iPad mini and the hardware-refreshed iPad 4 last month, one open question has remained: just when will the LTE-capable versions of these tablets arrive? We looked into the shipping situation for both models last week, and heard reports of users who had ordered the tablets being notified that they could expect their hardware to arrive sometime from November 20 through 23. As we move into this week, though, it's sounding possible that the LTE iPad 4 could show up a little earlier, with some users receiving their tablets as soon as November 16. That's the ...

    Apple's long-rumored iPad mini is finally here, at least if all you wanted was the WiFi-only version of the 7.9-inch tablet. What if the tablet's petite size just screams to you "take me out into the world", and you've been hankering for one of the cellular-enabled versions, instead? Apple's been accepting orders for those models, but the question as to just when they'd finally ship has remained. Now we're finally starting to get a better idea of when those orders could end up arriving, as well as when the LTE iPad mini might go up for sale in retail stores. Users who ordered the LTE iPad ...

    If you've got an iPad 3, you might be curious (and also frustrated by the early release of) the iPad 4, which adds a new CPU and the lightning charging port. The most notable feature, certainly, is the faster CPU, which Apple claims to provide double the performance than the A5x, found inside the iPad 3. In our review of the iPad 3, we charged that it was not significantly faster than the iPad 2, offering up occasional lag and stutters. The A6 chip, making its debut in the iPhone 5, is much more promising than was the A5. It's a 32nm CPU that provides increased performance and lower ...
