Apple 3D flyovers take a trip to Europe, Japan, and Mexico

Apple 3D flyovers take a trip to Europe, Japan, and Mexico

Trying to make a bigger claim on the maps and navigation market, Apple has extended its admittedly captivating 3D flyover feature to 21 new areas spread across Europe, Mexico, and one in Japan. Now both local and tourists can enjoy an almost breathtaking digital 3D view of these places. But more than just a pretty sight, the 3D visualization of these maps could help give users a more solid grasp (pun totally intended) of the topography as well as the landmarks of a given area.

iPhone 6s will no longer yield, claims bendgate specialist

It seems that theories on why the upcoming iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are slightly larger, if not thicker, might have some bearing after all. Apple was hit hard with criticism over its somewhat bendable flagship, particularly the iPhone 6 Plus but it seems that Cupertino has learned from the lesson well. At least according to Unbox Therapy, who was one of the most vocal voices during the bendgate furor. With only a backplate in hand, he proposes that, at least in theory, the iPhone 6s won't bend much, or at all.

Snapchat’s new ‘Travel Mode’ reduces data usage

Snapchat has pushed out updates for its Android and iOS apps, and they both benefit from a handful of new features as a result. For iPhone and Android users, the update brings a trio of new welcomed features, the most important of which is 'Travel Mode', which cuts down on how much data the apps use.

Plex for iOS gets complete overhaul with new update

The Plex for iOS app has been updated, the company announced today. A long while has passed since the app was last updated, and Plex explains that as having been due to laziness, the team's use of the BlackBerry Passport rather than “iSheeple devices”, and the fact that “Apple keeps changing things!” All of which is tongue-in-cheek foolery, of course, but the real reasons don’t matter as the waiting has come to an end. The new Plex for iOS app has been reworked from the ground up, and it brings with a host of goodies fit for new and life-long Plex users alike.

Apple redesigns website, combining store and product pages

You might not notice it right away, but Apple has launched a fairly substantial redesign to its website. There is no longer a dedicated online store section to the website. The "store" tab has been removed from the main navigation bar, and the address "store.apple.com" now redirects to the homepage. Does this mean Apple doesn't want people buying things from them online anymore? Nope, they've just added a dedicated "Buy" button to the top of each product page.

Night mode finally descends on Google Maps for iOS

Night mode finally descends on Google Maps for iOS

Ever since the whole Apple Maps fiasco almost three years ago, Google has had the opportunity to snatch that part of the mobile Apple experience. So far, it's been working and iPhone users are more or less satisfied. Except for one thing that mostly drivers have been clamoring for: night mode. The day, or night, has finally arrived when you will no longer be blinded by your iPhone's bright screen while driving down the highway. Night mode is finally here, perhaps giving users less reason to switch map apps.
