Will the iPhone 7 return to its “4” design roots?

Will the iPhone 7 return to its “4” design roots?

This afternoon we're having a peek at a few images of what the iPhone 7 might look like next year. While this year we're almost certainly set to have another "s" release with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, with similar designs to last year's hardware, next year we'll have a seven, and an opportunity for revival. Industrial designer and CAD artist Ivo Maric has a few images he's shared to shed some light on to this potential retro revision, complete with flat edges.

Microsoft releases Send, a minimal email app for iPhone

Microsoft releases Send, a minimal email app for iPhone

In a time where we've got our hands full with mobile email apps, there are even multiple offering from the same provider, such as the standard Gmail and alternate take "Inbox." Now Microsoft is pulling a similar move, with a lightweight, minimal function email app called Send, hitting the iPhone first. To sum it up in one sentence, Send is a bit of mix between email and instant messaging. It was also previously known as "Flow," an Outlook project that was leaked back in May.

iOS beta users can no longer leave App Store reviews

iOS beta users can no longer leave App Store reviews

Apple just implemented a small, but important change to its App Store policies that is likely to have app developers crying out with joy. Simply put, users with devices running pre-release versions of the iOS software, such as the recent versions of the iOS 9 beta, can no longer leave reviews for apps. This may seem harsh, or anti-consumer, but it's actually to protect developers' apps from having their reputation trashed by negative reviews based on bugs and crashes — things to expect from a beta anyway.

iPad sales drop below Mac – is the tablet dying?

iPad sales drop below Mac – is the tablet dying?

This afternoon Apple's earnings call for their fiscal Q3 2015 suggested that sales of the iPad continue to fall. What's odd about this particular reveal is the fact that revenue is beginning to be quite obviously lower than the Mac. Where this past quarter was the first quarter in several years that iPad revenue was lower than the Mac, it was by less than a couple hundred million dollars. Now the difference is by nearly $1.5 billion. Meanwhile UNITS of the iPad continue to outsell the Mac, for what its worth.

NFL Game Pass brings games to Apple TV, Xbox and more

The NFL has offered a subscription streaming service for a while, but it has been limited in both availability and what it offers. That will be changing with NFL Game Pass, a new service that updates its previous offering to include support for additional devices like Apple TV and gaming consoles. Game Pass will, for the most part, be replacing Game Rewind, and it’ll bring on-demand streaming of past regular season games. Unfortunately, live streaming options will still be limited.

BEAT DA BEAT hits Android, iOS: one bullet for every note

Previously greenlit on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux, BEAT DA BEAT will be released for Android and iOS in August.

BEAT DA BEAT has flying enemies jamming lasers down your phone while they appear, blast, and shine to the music. "Absolutely everything - enemy's actions, moves, shooting - is build on the base of the song that is currently playing."

Photofast MemoriesCable backs up iOS devices as you charge

If you have lots of data on your iOS device like photos, music, or eBooks that you want to backup there are already a few ways to do that. You can have the iPhone back up the content to the cloud.

The alternative might be to back up your content locally using a new cable from Photofast called the MemoriesCable.

Yahoo Livetext ‘video messenger’ app arrives for iOS

Yahoo Livetext ‘video messenger’ app arrives for iOS

Yahoo is apparently close to formally introducing a replacement for its messaging app, as it recently released a new app on the Hong Kong App Store called “Yahoo Livetext”, a mobile offering described as a video messenger. Livetext has a twist with its messaging feature. Rather than swapping media-less texts or snapping selfies, Livetext is “live video texting" — it presents live video of your friend texting, but with the audio stripped away due to it being inconvenient in many situations. This is said to offer more natural conversations, allowing two people to see each other as they talk.

It's a handy feature, one that makes it easier to work through one's saved articles while driving to or from work or while doing other things that require your attention to be (mostly) elsewhere.
