    Apple's next-generation Apple TV could prove to be a better accessory for your iPhone or iPad than it already is. With Google's launch of its Chromecast, and with its aggressive pricing, it's clear that Apple has a lot to prove with its future set-top-box. Some still assume that Apple is ready to launch a full television set, but if it doesn't, we might see an announcement very soon. According to Bloomberg, this will still be a set-top-box and: The new device, which plugs into a television set, will have a faster processor than the previous version and an upgraded interface to make it ...

    There was a time almost seven years ago when Microsoft, Palm and BlackBerry dominated the enterprise market. As a matter of fact, one of the biggest reasons why we all panned the iPhone when it launched, was precisely because it wasn't even designed to cater to enterprise users. That changed gradually as Apple pushed newer and more powerful versions of iOS, up to the point where you'd never guess who dominates the enterprise market today. According to Good Technology's Mobile Index Report for Q4, 2013: "From a device perspective, we continued to see an increase in iOS activations this ...

    Even though Apple was born as a computer company, that didn't stop it from evolving into the iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, and iPad that we see today. We've heard intense rumors, we've seen lots of patents, and we've noticed recent hires that all point to the company working on something new in the wearable category, and the company's boss just shed some additional light. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Apple's CEO Tim Cook confirmed that "“there will be new categories this year,” and in his usual tone, the fact that Apple is “working on some really great stuff.” As ...

    Amazon's tactics to win new customers are truly legendary. Years ago, if you wanted to compare the price tag of one product at different stores, you had to either give them a call or go. A couple of years ago, Amazon introduced the option for you to scan the barcode of a product and do this comparison within the store, but now it seems the company is out for more details. Amazon's recent update to its iOS app now includes image detection tools. You'd think that scanning a bar code would be enough, but if there's anything you see at your friend's house that you'd like, it's obvious that the ...

    If you haven't seen damnyouautocorrect.com, then you clearly don't know what you're missing. The keyboard text prediction on the iPhone has proven to be one of its most amazing features since the first-generation iPhone was launched, but that doesn't mean that it's either perfect, or practical when you handle more than one language. Apple's new patent plans to solve this, though in a very interesting fashion. Currently the Apple's iOS line-up will underline any spelling mistakes you made, or that it couldn't fix, but one of these patents plans to give you the option to halt a message from ...

    Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak is not only famous for being the father of the personal computer, but also because he can come up with some crazy ideas every now and then, and yes, these even include the personal computer back in 1976 according to the 'experts' of the time. Today he's no longer an active Apple engineer, but he still is well renowned for his thoughts and impressions of where the company is headed. We've heard how much of a fan Woz is of Nokia Lumia smartphones, and in a recent appearance in Apps World North America he manifested that Apple should consider building an ...

    Apple has been doing docks since the launch of the first-generation iPod, and there even was a time when these were bundled with the mobile devices that you bought. We've also seen Apple building charging docks for every iPhone and iPad manufactured as well, but what we've never seen is Apple go beyond the usual "desk stand" concept of the dock, or at least until now. Apple filed a patent for a Smart Dock back in 2012, and this just got awarded by the USPTO. As it turns out, this new type of dock doesn't have the usual cradle design that we know, but instead allows you to lay the phone ...

    Yesterday, we covered the top social apps for Android. Naturally, we had to make a video for iOS, too, since many social applications land on iOS first, and some never leave Apple's App Store. As always, downloading all the official applications is a great start. Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram, and practically every other social network has a first-party application, and they all work pretty well. But when you start digging through the App Store, you find third-party applications, which are generally on an entirely different level. Watch this top five social apps list, and ...

This is probably one of the most anticipated updates to iOS in years, and that's mainly because lots of iPhone 5s users have found themselves plagued with bugs and issues that Apple has confirmed will arrive on this update. Today Apple has made iOS 7.1 beta 5 available to developers, and if history serves us right, we should expect the next update to be a solid release candidate. It's still hard to tell what to expect from this update, but one thing we have confirmed is that Siri ...

    The App Store is renowned for all the great applications and games that call Apple's digital app catalog home. Many new applications are first developed for iOS before being brought to other platforms, and a healthy serving of those applications are gorgeous. All that aside, what are the best applications in the App Store for getting stuff done and taking care of business? We could rattle off dozens of well-know applications we've heard of a million times by now – Evernote, Dropbox, Drive, Quick Office, SkyDrive, Springpad, etc. But what about the lesser-known applications which deserve ...

    Swifkey is probably one of the best inventions to ever reach the Android ecosystem. It's not only one of the smartest and better looking keyboards in the Play Store, but for those of us that live abroad, it makes it extremely easy to handle multi-lingual typing over the same UI, with no need for a language-switch button. We all heard the rumors of the service reaching iOS to some extent, and that's now a reality. Say hello to Swiftkey Note, the company's new app for iOS. Sadly, as opposed to Android where you get a full keyboard replacement, Swiftkey is a just a Notes application. There ...

    As popular and successful as Samsung may be, the company has taken the spotlight over the last couple of years for ripping-off a lot of companies in their products, the most notorious being Apple. We've seen various lawsuits flying around between these two companies, precisely because of how the Galaxy line-up follows on the iPhone's footsteps, and yet, it seems that Samsung hasn't had enough. SamMobile has just leaked a screenshot of how S Voice will look on the future Samsung UI, and you guessed it, just like S Voice looked like Siri in its inception, this new update looks like the new ...
