Apple TV tipped for September, but without TV service

Apple TV tipped for September, but without TV service

This year's WWDC has come and gone and still no sign of the expected, or hoped, refresh of the Apple TV. Well, there's still September and this time it's sure to be announced. Or at least that's what sources familiar with the matter are now saying. But while Apple TV might indeed be the hero of Apple's Fall event, with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus only taking second stage, it may not arrive the way most are expect. That is, it may not arrive with Apple TV, The Service.

Dashlane comes to Apple Watch with one-touch password changes

Popular password management service Dashlane has just released an update for its iOS app that introduces Apple Watch compatibility. While looking up and reading passwords from your wrist is hardly ideal, it's Dashlane's flagship feature — one-touch password changer — that makes the Apple Watch app shine. That tool is how Dashlane differentiates itself from managers like 1Password and LastPass, automatically changing and updating passwords on websites with the touch of a single button.

IDC paints a dreary quarter for tablets

IDC paints a dreary quarter for tablets

With all the focus on high-end smartphones for the past few months, some might have forgotten that larger screens still do exist. If market analyst IDC's figures are correct, then there is a basis for that. Global shipments of tablets have sunk at a new low, as much as 7 percent compared to the same second quarter last 2014. Even compared to the first quarter of this year, there was a 3.9 percent decline in numbers, revealing a worrying trend for tablet makers, especially for Apple and Samsung.

StubHub for iOS now features Uber, Apple Music connectivity

StubHub for iOS now features Uber, Apple Music connectivity

StubHub, the popular service for buying and selling event tickets, has just updated its iOS app with an interesting pair of other apps/services for iPhone users: Uber and Apple Music. While on first thought these three apps seem like a random mismatch for integration, they actually play out well together and, dare I say, may be fairly useful. The Uber integration lets users request a ride in relation to the event they just bought tickets for, while Apple Music favorites can be added to StubHub, making it easier to know when tickets are available.

Apple reported to be eying BMW i3 for its own EV plans

Apple reported to be eying BMW i3 for its own EV plans

Apple making its own electric car is one of those news that refuses to die, much like a zombie. Although a surprising new venture for Cupertino, it falls in line with the tech world's recent obsession over the automotive industry, both in EVs and in self-driving cars. And there is strong evidence to support news of Apple's plans, as well as a steady flow of rumors, like this one that puts Apple chief exec Tim Cook in Germany to see if the BMW i3 electric car is a viable basis for its own.

Apple Watch coming soon to a Best Buy near you

Apple Watch coming soon to a Best Buy near you

Like any Apple product, or maybe even more so, the Apple Watch has had its share of believers and naysayers. Just this month, Apple's first wearable was put under much scrutiny due to what was perceived lack of general interest in the smartwatch. Although Apple refuted such claims, both with some actual numbers as well as strong statements, the fact remained that the limited availability of the Apple Watch probably hurt more than it helped. Well, not anymore, because starting next week, you can buy one at a Best Buy retail store.

Fasten your seat belts! Next week will be a doozy for devices launch

IFA 2015 is traditionally the time when many companies announce their wares to a captive audience, both physical and virtual. There now seems to be a trend, however, of some of those opting to go ahead, perhaps to avoid clashing with other giants. This month, it seems that the stars have curiously aligned to make the last week of July filled with new toys and tidbits that we'll be talking about in the days, weeks, or even months, to come. To better buckle up, sit back, and enjoy the ride.
