Apple Watch isn’t a wearable doctor, so what will it be?

Apple Watch isn’t a wearable doctor, so what will it be?

We may have already seen Apple Watch, but in actual fact we've hardly seen it at all: just what will we get from having the iOS wearable on our wrists? While Apple demonstrated early prototypes of the wearable back in September 2014, complete with nowhere-near-final software, the actual direction the Apple Watch has taken is, developers and project insiders say, quite different to the original intentions. In fact, while app makers aren't short of praise already, that's not to say Apple itself has made quite the timepiece it initially set out to.

Apple Titan self-driving electric car rumors gain traction

Apple Titan self-driving electric car rumors gain traction

Apple's auto ambitions are shaping up to be far more broad than simply dominating the dashboard with maps and multimedia, with multiple sources tipping an autonomous, electric car project underway dubbed "Titan". The Tesla-challenging car would be a cocked-snook not only to the traditional auto industry, it's suggested, but key rivals like Google which are themselves working on self-driving technologies. Reports that Apple had raided top automakers for engineers and R&D specialists broke late last week, for what at the time was speculated as a more advanced version of CarPlay. Now, however, the scope of the rumor-worthy skunkworks seems to be far greater.

Apple auto-maker raids tipped for secret car scheme

Apple has raided the ranks of automotive experts for a secretive skunkworks investigating future car technologies, sources claim, though whispers of an "Apple Car" are still far from confirmed. The recruitment drive to staff the newly-established research group includes some high-profile wins, too, with the former head of Mercedes-Benz's Silicon Valley R&D team joining Apple's efforts, along with auto designers and even engineers working on vehicle dynamics. It's enough to reignite speculation among car experts that Apple is indeed planning its own entrance into the four-wheel space.

The Apple Watch will be released this April - but before then, we'd like to get you prepared to understand how you'll be using this piece of technology.

Working with our own knowledge of the device mixed with the dive released by AppleInsider today, here's what you're going to need to know.

Minivans are a staple of the US Landscape, and now Apple is testing Minivans equipped with Cameras and a LiDAR Sensor for a possible new (secret) project. There have been numerous sightings of these vehicles in recent weeks. What does Apple have up its secret sleeve this time? Is Apple possibly trying to compete with Google Streetview?

Google Maps for Android and iOS updated

Google Maps has been updated for both Android and iOS, bringing users both new features and improvements.

The most notable new feature for iOS users is the ability to see weather for cities around the globe; Android users, meanwhile, can see their contacts when they're searching for addresses in Maps.

Report: Apple iCloud dogged by ‘organizational issues’

Report: Apple iCloud dogged by ‘organizational issues’

As far as cloud storage solutions go, Apple’s iCloud is among the oddest. A company with massive resources and deep pockets should be able to provide a clean, cohesive experience for users. They can’t; iCould and iDrive are just not as good as other cloud storage offerings. From layout to syncing — even down to pricing — iCloud is a mis-hit from Apple. They’re sticking with it, though, so a silver lining exists. A new report details why the cloud in front of iCloud is so dark, though.
