The introduction of iOS 9 had its highs and lows. Foremost of the hills was the quick pace of adaption as compared to iOS 8. The bad news, of course, was contained within gremlins and bugs of a v.x.0 release. Now, as we head off to iOS 9.0.2, Apple is not looking back, which isn’t good news for iOS 8.4.1 jailbreakers.
Your iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will not be able to downgrade back down to iOS 8.4.1 nor can it go to iOS 9.0 if it’s been updated past that threshold. Apple closed the signing window for iOS 8.4.1 to all of itsdevices. It seems that devices from the [...]

LG’s evolving wearables lineup has been tied heavily to the timeline of the Android Wear OS itself. It was a hardware launch partner with the G Watch. The LG G Watch R was the first smartwatch for Android Wear with a fully circular screen. And while the Korean OEM had a brief soirée with webOS for its first LTE-connected smartwatch, we continue to see the company pioneer in the Android Wear platform.
This time, it’s put out the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, the first Android Wear smartwatch with both 3G and 4G cellular connectivity. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS [...]
This fall’s flagship for Korean OEM LG has a lot of people scratching their heads at how the company will mix up the user experience with a screen ticker and two front-facing cameras. All the leaks told us about them. The hair’s been cut. Now, the wraps are off.
The 2.1-inch “Second Screen,” as LG’s marketing team is christening it, sits atop a 5.7-inch QHD IPS Quantum display. Both screens measure in at 513 ppi. Whether the main display is on or off, the independently-driven Second Screen can give you vital system info, news, weather, time, [...]
It looks like Apple’s best way of teasing the future to all of us is with the patent. If you want to dread and fight all about it, well, keep tabs on Samsung. We first saw a piece of Apple’s future (possibly in tune with an iPhone, but applicable to any form factor) back in March 2013 with a patent application regarding a device with a wraparound, flexible display.
Now, within a burst of 28 approved patents from the Patent and Trademark Office, we see that the all-around display device patent is among them. Patent #9,146,590 features the following claim:

Facebook’s been great at pumping out features its been incubating. But for the most part, services from Facebook M to its breaking news app haven’t been what users were asking for. The company decided only recently to pull its head from the ground and give people the “Dislike” button they have been asking for (prefaced with some imaging spin). The .gification of the internet likely reached its peak with Facebook now showing them off. Now, it’s taking cues from other social networks to redesign the mobile profile page.
The most visceral [...]

When it comes to selling the iPhone 6s, it seems like we’ve entered into the Old McDonald’s farm: here a deal, there a deal, everywhere a deal-deal. In the US, it’s not just first-tier carriers in the action — prepaid carriers are now beginning to stock the iPhone 6s, too. Virgin Mobile USA, a Sprint subsidiary, is listing only the gold-colored 16GB model at $549.99. It hasn’t opened up orders yet, though.
Meantime, sister subsidiary Boost Mobile is letting you buy the gray 16GB model at the same price right now. In addition to the $100 chop from [...]
