Apple Watch app: spanning the grid

Apple Watch app: spanning the grid

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. It's not difficult - Apple wouldn't create a product meant to be hard to use, of course - and its user interface is mostly going to be based on the device itself, not on your iPhone. 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.

Apple switching gears to test camera-equipped vehicles in Bay Area

Apple switching gears to test camera-equipped vehicles in Bay Area

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? A bit late to the Mapping game, Apple seem to finally want to shed their ill-received entry into mapping technology, and are actively trying to give their Google counterparts a run for their money, so to speak.

Apple Watch news: leaked icon, a new app, and a fresh landing page

Apple CEO Tim Cook says it’s coming in April. Various other reports lay out a litany of non-official info about the Apple Watch, but one thing is certain: we’re interested in Apple’s first official wearable. A new landing page for the Apple Watch aims to educate the public a bit more about why the Apple Watch is something they should consider, while the actual iOS app for the Apple Watch (which we’ve discussed before) has also been leaked via Twitter.

Apple to repurpose Arizona Sapphire plant as data center

Apple to repurpose Arizona Sapphire plant as data center

Remember that failed Sapphire plant in Arizona, where Apple was supposed to churn out tons of their favorite screen material for use on iPhones and every other gadget they could think up? When GT Advanced failed to make good on their deal with Apple for Sapphire glass, Apple promised to repurpose the building. Initially, it wasn’t as clear as Sapphire what they’d do with their owned warehouse space, but now we know. Apple is planning a $2 billion data center where Sapphire once was.

Gold Apple Watches to be stored in safes in Apple Stores

Gold Apple Watches to be stored in safes in Apple Stores

Much has been said already about how the release of the Apple Watch will be the biggest change in Apple products since the company began selling touchscreen devices. However, Apple's new smartwatch will also bring about a small, albeit interesting change to their retail locations: the installation of safes. Not just small, personal safes like you may have in your closet, but large, professional ones like you often see in traditional jewelry stores. Sources say these forthcoming lockboxes are intended for one thing: to store the high-end Apple Watch Edition timepieces that come in luxurious gold.

Rumor: Apple asks for Apple Watch-friendly iOS app early

Rumor: Apple asks for Apple Watch-friendly iOS app early

Now that we have a better idea of when the Apple Watch will come to us via the Apple Store, some interesting news has leaked regarding apps for the Apple Watch. The last time we discussed Apple Watch’s handshake with the iPhone, we found Developers were getting the ability to create notifications, but not much more. A quick run-through of Developer guidelines and tutorials echoes that, but a new rumor suggests Apple is asking at least one of its “biggest” launch partners to submit an Apple Watch friendly app early.

Apple shuts down iTunes Connect in wake of log-in issues

Apple shuts down iTunes Connect in wake of log-in issues

Now that TestFlight is being wrapped into Apple’s iTunes Connect, problems are starting to show. Many with a Developer account via Apple are reporting that logging in takes them to a different account altogether, which I can sadly corroborate. Even though Developers are using their own credentials, they’re being logged into accounts that aren’t theirs. Larger names like H&R Block and BlackBerry are reported to have been affected by this. So far, there have been no reported issues other than this odd log-in thing, and Apple has pulled the plug while they figure it all out.

IDC: as Apple surges, Samsung falls

IDC: as Apple surges, Samsung falls

Big changes are in the wings this year as IDC reports big movements in smartphone shipments for the fourth quarter of last year. In their report of the last three months of 2014, Samsung's year-over-year change was in the negative - the only company in the negative in the top five companies on IDC's chart. On the other hand, Samsung does remain in the top spot for smartphone shipments worldwide, followed closely by Apple. Apple appears to be closing in on Samsung in a big way, with less than a point difference in worldwide smartphone shipments.

Sorry Samsung, Apple’s probably the smartphone king

Sorry Samsung, Apple’s probably the smartphone king

Apple's Q4 2014 may not only have been its best quarter ever for iPhone sales, but the point at which it overtook arch-rival Samsung in the smartphone business. The Cupertino firm announced a massive 74.5m iPhone sales in the final three months of last year, setting itself a new record and - according to at least one research firm - putting it on at least level-pegging with Samsung. The South Korean company has played coy with its Galaxy numbers, but it's clear that Apple's rapid ascent has dramatically closed (if not destroyed) the gap between the two.
