iOS 8.1.1 beta brings performance boost for older devices

Apple’s iOS 8 rollout has been — interesting. After a false-start for HealthKit and download problems that caused some devices to lose cellular connectivity, we all seem to be on the right track. Though some hefty improvements to iOS are expected with iOS 8.2 and/or 8.3, Apple has iOS 8.1.1 in beta form, and has begun seeding it to Developers. Whether you’ve upgraded or not, this update is one you’ll want to look for, and it could pave an important path for the iOS faithful.

Manufacturers are now getting chips with Apple’s HomeKit

The Smart Home of Tomorrow is quickly becoming the norm for today, with many companies sticking their hands in the collective home automation pot. Among these is none less than Apple with its HomeKit, which we saw unveiled this past summer. There's a certification process that must be followed for those wishing to get on board, chief among it being the need to use HomeKit-enabled chips from certain approved makers; namely, Texas Instruments, Broadcom, and Marvell. The first two chipmakers in that group, it has been revealed, are now shipping their wares.

Apple relaxes stance on calculator widgets

Apple relaxes stance on calculator widgets

If you’ve seen chatter about Apple blocking calculator widgets over the past few days, the news may have been a bit confusing. The sensational headline was that Apple was blocking all calculator widgets, which began with the Developer of a popular third-party Calculator app having his widget pulled. The reason given was that widgets were barred from performing any calculations, and like so many App Store rules and guidelines, made little sense. Now, Apple is changing their mind a bit, and offering an explanation on the dust-up.

Mylio pro photo-handling software launches tomorrow for iOS, OS X

Thanks to smartphones, most of us have a lot of pictures floating around -- they're usually scattered all over the place, maybe being saved to a central cloud account for those who took the time to set one up. Sorting through and otherwise keeping track of all these images can be difficult, but for the photographers among us who have thousands or hundreds of thousands of images, organization becomes an entirely different kind of beast. That's where professional-level photo handling software comes in, not the least of which is Mylio, which will be arriving for Apple users tomorrow.

The Vizzywig 4K video app is back, ready for iOS 8.1

The Vizzywig 4K video app is back, ready for iOS 8.1

Remember the Vizzywig 4K app that shot video from your iPhone in 4K resolution? After being pulled from the App Store, they’re back — and sporting a new name. Rather than 4K, Vizzywig has now branded themselves 8K. Why the double-down in the naming scheme? Because the app has eight times the pixel density of FaceTime HD, of course. Vizzywig also says that for the best frame-rate experience, an iPhone 5S is needed. The 24 frames per second make video smoother.

Apple doesn’t know if iPhone 6 or 6 Plus is more popular

Apple doesn’t know if iPhone 6 or 6 Plus is more popular

There's no doubting that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been successful for Apple, racking up record sales in the first month. 10m in sales in the first weekend would seem to prove that iOS users really were eager for a bigger phone, but the lingering question has been "which size is more popular?" Apple wouldn't address 6/6 Plus split when it announced its latest financial results and, according to Greg "Joz" Joswiak, VP of iPhone, iPad, and iOS product marketing, the answer is that, right now, the company itself doesn't really know.

Apple unleashes TestFlight beta for Devs, gives users early access to apps

Apple unleashes TestFlight beta for Devs, gives users early access to apps

Apple has announced their TestFlight Beta program, which allows Developers to seed beta builds of their apps to users, is now live. Registered Apple Developers can now distribute up to 1,000 copies of their app to testers, using the iTunes Connect portal to email invites. It’s a pretty new scheme for Apple, but falls directly in line with their prior beta work with OS X Yosemite and iOS 8. With TestFlight, those Developers and companies that aren’t Apple can now do exactly the same.

iPad Air 2 teardown confirms Apple did not defy laws of physics

Wondering what mysteries are inside the iPad Air 2? Apple didn't leave itself much room for surprises in its new flagship tablet, with the 6.1 mm slate not only the company's thinnest, but also its most powerful. As we found in our review of the iPad Air 2, components like the 1.49GHz tri-core Apple A8X processor and the newly fully-laminated display certainly keep iOS 8.1 moving along swiftly, but the team over at iFixit are more intrigued about how they all fit together physically.

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

Apple is bullish on tablets and, for all it may be the slimmest and lightest of its breed, the iPad Air 2 is undeniably its new heavyweight champion. Dropping weight and bulk while simultaneously gaining power, the iPad Air 2 also dips into the best-selling iPhone 6's pockets for features like Touch ID and Apple Pay. Question is, though, has the new Air done enough to make itself a must-have upgrade?

iCloud attacks were real: Apple comments

iCloud attacks were real: Apple comments

This week it was reported that Apple’s iCloud servers were under attack by China - as it turns out that’s not entirely true. Apple has made clear in a statement that there were indeed "intermittent organized network attacks" this week, but that they were done on people attempting to access the iCloud webpage. There weren’t any attacks on the iCloud servers themselves, nor were there any drops of user information. Apple does, however, suggest that you pay attention to "certificate warnings."
