A lot has been learned about iOS 8 since Developers have had their chance to toy with it. This newest item might be the coolest we’ve seen. In opening up their platform a bit, Apple is also encouraging more third-party extensions for Safari on mobile. The famed 1Password might have the coolest one yet.
Today we’re having a look at a rather nicely produced demonstration of what it’d look like to see iOS 8 on an iPhone 6, and it got us wondering. What will Apple do with iOS 8 as far as stretching for a larger display? Between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 5, the display became tall enough to fit another row of icons, making the answer obvious.
A new iPhone 6 leak is giving us the first look at what’s said to be the front display panel, offering up some details that could put a solid nod in the way of other leaks being accurate. While just the display glass, we see some subtle design changes in effect, and one feature that could end up being a new iPhone aesthetic, and make it easier to use.
Oh, iPhone 6, why do you taunt us so? New reports are calling into question previous ones we’d heard about the next iPhone, this time saying the images we’ve all seen may not be accurate at all. Aside from an aesthetic change, there are some actual material difference this time around. Turns out the new iPhone may be a lot like the old one.
It’s been seven years and the iPhone is still kicking just as hard - or even - harder than the day it launched. Speaking of the launch – do you remember exactly where you were on that historical day? I remember clearly where I was: at the Cube Apple store in Manhattan where I’d been queued up in a long line along with thousands and thousands of eager iPhone enthusiasts. I was number eight.
A recent teardown for the “new” iPod Touch shows that not much has changed with the complex manufacturing process. It’s still glued, still screwed, and still tough to open up. We took a second and compared some other Apple products, and referenced that against those iPhone 6 leaks we see popping up. Will the iPhone 6 be as tough to repair as other Apple devices like it?
Aperture, Apple’s professional photography app, is disappearing. Speaking to The Loop, Apple notes the app will be slipping into the darkness with OS X Yosemite. As they prepare a more robust Photos app, Aperture may just be redundant.
Video editing on a small screen can be a pain. Though iOS is closing the gap with ease of use, the smaller display still makes for a headache-inducing ride sometimes. A new addition to the App Store makes things a bit easier to handle, but is it the best editor you can get for your iPhone?
