Why an OLED iPhone would be so important

Why an OLED iPhone would be so important

In the run-up to the big iPhone 7 reveal later this year, Apple is said to be working on an even more fundamental change to its best-selling smartphone. Though the Cupertino company has used LCD screens for its handsets since the first iPhone in 2007 - and is expected to continue to do so for the iPhone 7 - that could all change come next year, as the lure of OLED finally tips Retina display into the opposing camp.

Apple recovered two thirds of e-waste collected last year

Apple recovered two thirds of e-waste collected last year

With new phones, tablets, and laptops coming out all the time, we often upgrade our devices well before we need to. Those devices will get sold, or given to other people, but at some point, they will hit their end of life. And regardless of whether the device just became too old to be useful, or it suffered a catastrophic death, it has to go somewhere. And simply throwing it in the trash isn't a good option.

Three things Apple should have invented already

Three things Apple should have invented already

Apple invented the iPhone. They didn't invent the smartphone, but they did create a company that dominated smartphones. In the same way Apple invented the best way to dominate the smartphone, the following three devices should have been released by and subsequently dominated by Apple.

PC users should uninstall QuickTime for Windows ASAP

PC users should uninstall QuickTime for Windows ASAP

Most Windows users probably gave up on QuickTime as their media player of choice some time ago, but if for some reason you, or, shall we say, those who are less tech-savvy, still have it installed, you need to get rid of it right away. Two critical security flaws have been found in the aging Apple software that put PC users at great risk, so much so that even the Department of Homeland Security is advising people to uninstall the Windows version.

Apple further hints OS X name change to MacOS

Apple further hints OS X name change to MacOS

It's looking more and more likely that this year will see Apple announce a change in branding of the Mac's operating system from OS X to just "MacOS." This possibility was first discovered in late March when a developer found a hidden file in the latest update to OS X 10.11 El Capitan that made reference to "macOS" in its name. The latest hint, however, comes from Apple itself, with the term being used on an official webpage for the company's Earth Day 2016 efforts.

Apple’s big App Store fix could include pay-for-placement

Apple’s big App Store fix could include pay-for-placement

Apple may allow developers to pay for better positioning in the App Store, borrowing the paid search strategy that has been so successful for Google. The revolution to the iOS download store would be one strand of a broader strategy to cut through the more than 1.5 million apps that crowd it, addressing growing criticisms that it's too hard to find the best content for iPhone and iPad.
