Lunatik reveals monstrous Apple Watch case

Behold the most massive Apple Watch case yet revealed. This is the Epik, made by the mobile accessories brand Lunatik, created to keep the 42mm Apple Watch safe no matter the conditions. Sort of. it's not going to keep your Apple Watch safe from a bomb - or water. But it will be made with aircraft-grade aluminum, and if you didn't know your Apple Watch was on your arm before, you darn sure will with this extra bit of action surrounding it.

For scholarship students at WWDC, Swift is mandatory

For scholarship students at WWDC, Swift is mandatory

Swift is Apple’s new programming language that I (and clearly plenty of others) am extremely excited about. Nimble, quick, and increasingly powerful with every iteration, Swift is quickly (swiftly?) becoming the iOS language of choice. At WWDC this year, Apple is also making it requisite. Though propped up as a 'language for a later time' by many, Apple is forcing learners to pick it up yesterday. If you’re a student interested in going to WWDC on a scholarship, you have to know Swift.

Apple bans selfie sticks at WWDC 2015

Apple bans selfie sticks at WWDC 2015

With tickets for WWDC in such high demand, it's no surprise that developers might want to share the news of their attendance with their friends. Apple is all for selfies, it turns out, but just as long as they're not being taken with a selfie stick, with the WWDC 2015 attendance policy specifically calling out the opinion-splitting accessories - and, in fact, any monopod-like device which does a similar thing - as being banned from the event.

Vizzywig 8HD turns your Apple Watch into a recording control room

Vizzywig 8HD turns your Apple Watch into a recording control room

Remember Vizzywig? Yes, the very same people who developed that insane, and insanely cool, 4K video recording app, which, by the way, they are now marketing as "8HD". Well, here they are with another insane idea, and this time, they are targeting Apple's newest baby, the Apple Watch. No, you won't be recording videos from the smartwatch, since it has no camera. Instead, you will be controlling everything from your wrist. And we're not talking about starting or stopping recording only. You can even edit and stitch it all up on your smartwatch.

Revamped YouTube app makes an appearance on iPhone

Revamped YouTube app makes an appearance on iPhone

YouTube may be in the process of redesigning its app for iOS. Multiple users claim that a new version of the app was briefly available for iPhones last year. Although it has since changed back to its familiar design, one clever user took some screenshots to capture the design elements before it disappeared. YouTube is rumored to be redesigning the app for Android, along with a new player for Internet. New apps developed using Material Design have been cropping up on iOS and Android, so it makes sense that YouTube is toying with a new design layout.

iOS 8.4 revamps Apple’s Music app, and the changes are “beautiful”

Apple has pushed out the iOS 8.4 beta update, and chief among its features is a revamped Music app, one that Apple touts as being "beautiful" and, of course, easier to use than the previous version without sacrificing functionality. The new Music app design is complemented by several new features that round out the user experience, including “streamlined” use of iTunes Radio, making it easier to go back to favorite stations and to choose from existing curated Featured offerings.

Apple Watch battery doubled with this odd accessory

Apple Watch battery doubled with this odd accessory

The folks behind "wipowerband" suggest that all you need to to to get twice the battery life from the Apple Watch is wear their band. This band makes the Apple Watch setup twice as thick - at least - and adds a layer of plastic to your otherwise mostly metal setup. This accessory works with any version of the Apple Watch as it comes in more than one shape and size - as long as you make sure you get the right one. Don't expect this band to be around the wrists of too many Apple Watch Edition buyers, that's for certain.

Final Cut X, Motion, Compressor apps updated with 3D in mind

Final Cut X, Motion, Compressor apps updated with 3D in mind

Editing film via OS X is dead simple with iMovie, but some need more than Apple’s core software can provide. For that, there’s Final Cut Pro X, Apple’s more robust (and expensive) video editing software. Today, the company is announcing some upgrades to the software, which should make ‘prosumers’ quite happy. With version 10.2, Final Cut Pro X has some flashy new 3D titles, and updates to the Motion and Compressor software make using all three a much richer experience.

Apple Watch success isn’t sales, it’s stickiness

Apple Watch success isn’t sales, it’s stickiness

Apple isn't saying how many Apple Watches it sold in the first weekend of preorders, but arguably the bigger question is how many will still be wrapped around wrists a few months after. Unofficial estimates of sales have suggested as many as a million of the iOS wearables have been earmarked for eager owners, pushing shipping estimates into the summer at the earliest, and for many it was a case of buy first, try second since preorders opened before store demo displays did.
