LG Smart Lighting joins the Apple HomeKit party to battle Hue

In the very near future, LG will release a number of smart lights and a hub which will be compatible with Apple HomeKit. This LG Smart Lighting solution is not LG's first - they also released a Bluetooth-friendly bulb called LG SmartLamp, allowing you to connect - one at a time - to each bulb within range.

Apple Watch hacked to run “true” native apps

Apple Watch hacked to run “true” native apps

Developers hack the Apple Watch to allow apps to run on UIKit, the software bones of the smart wearable device. While Apple has provided the developer world with a software kit called "WatchKit", WatchKit itself remote-drives another bit of software called PepperUICore which lives on top of UIKit. Apple's own apps on the Watch, save the Weather app, do not use WatchKit. To show that it is possible - albeit not recommended for those hoping to get in to Apple's official app store - three developers have gotten both UIKit and SceneKit apps running on the Apple Watch.

iOS 9 deep-linking blurs line between apps and web

Deep-linking in apps may not sound exciting, but it could change the way you use apps on your iPhone and iPad with iOS 9, not to mention give developers more control. The changes will allow users to jump from app to app more naturally, as well as blurring the division between local apps and web-based content, not to mention reduce the amount of time you spend punching in login credentials. Meanwhile, content within apps can show up within iOS 9’s newly-supercharged search.

How HomeKit embraces Siri, Apple Watch and iCloud

Apple is bolstering HomeKit, bringing more smart home kit under the automation umbrella and adding Apple Watch, Siri, and iCloud integration to boost usability both when at home and away.

However, there’s good news for those with existing gadgets they don’t want to replace.

iOS 9 Continuity to support T-Mobile Wi-Fi calls

iOS 9 Continuity to support T-Mobile Wi-Fi calls

Almost exactly last year, Apple revealed the Continuity feature of the then upcoming OS X Yosemite, a feature that, among other things, allowed Mac users to make and take calls on their Macs as long as their iPhone or iPad is within range. Useful as that may be, there was one subset of users that were left out in the cold. Those on T-Mobile that used Wi-Fi calling couldn't get their hands on Continuity. That is, until later this year when iOS 9 rolls out with that particular feature along for the ride.
