Revamped Apple TV remote app for iPhone coming soon

If there was one negative aspect about the new Apple TV that users discovered at launch, it was limitation on performing searches and entering text with the set-top box's included remote. Fortunately, Apple soon released the tvOS 9.1 update late last year improving voice search capabilities with Siri, and another update is on its way that will allow users to take advantage of dictation for text entry via the remote's mic. But the next big advancement that Apple has planned is using an iPhone to replace the remote altogether.

3 simple mistakes that can break your iPhone

Two iPhone hoaxes and one built-in security measure have popped up over the past week that you need to be aware of.

Dr Dre TV show detailed as Apple original called Vital Signs

Musician Dr Dre has been tipped to be creating a semi-autobiographical TV show with Apple by the name of Vital Signs. At this time it is not clear where the first season of this show will debut, but if you're betting, you'd do well to bet on an Apple product like Apple TV and/or iTunes. Dre helped made Beats by Dre explode as a headphone brand then a music service, following up by an acquisition by Apple. Now the video age begins.

Sending your iPhone back in time will unsurprisingly brick it

While some iPhone owners are already dealing with bricked devices from the dreaded "error 53" issue, another issue has been discovered that if users aren't careful, could leave their phone unusable after a simple change of the date.

Apple’s Streaming TV talks with CBS have ceased, so says Les Moonves

CBS CEO Les Moonves has changed a tune when it comes to Apple chats on streaming services. While last year the CBS head made clear the company was certainly in conversations regarding Apple's future smart TV releases, talks appear to have ended - for the time behind, anyway. Meanwhile CBS is certainly feeling the impact of streaming services and internet-based on-demand services of all sorts, suggesting that "something like 40% of the revenue CBS is getting didn't exist five years ago."

Windows tablets rose 11% in 2015 at Apple’s expense

The tablet market had it hard in 2015, with shipments having sunk even further than the previous year. Almost all analysts seem to agree to that. What some of the most popular ones don't seem to see eye to eye is who among those tablet vendors actually won in the market last year, at least relatively speaking. We've seen IDC's analysis of how the large iPad Pro helped put Apple above the crowd. Strategy Analytics, however, paints a slightly different picture. Sure, Apple has the bigger numbers, but Windows tablets are the ones that actually saw the most, in fact only, growth.
