iOS 9 beta reveals HQ on cellular option for Apple Music

Apple just released iOS 9 beta for its testers so now we're getting to hear about all the hidden gems that Apple has left for treasure seekers to find. One of those, apparently, relates to Apple's latest high-profile, and somewhat contentious, service: Apple Music. Now the app's settings reveal an option that will allow users to switch over to higher quality audio even when they are on cellular data, presumably to afford higher audio quality. Of course, this will come at the expense of data usage and, eventually, higher bills.

Alcatel OneTouch Watch launches in White

The software-agnostic Alcatel OneTouch Watch has launched a new color this week - bringing white to the table where before there was black. This is the color we saw the watch in earlier this year, while the Black option was released to pre-orders just a few weeks ago. This smartwatch is different from the rest. It doesn't run Android Wear, it's not running Tizen - and it's certainly not an Apple Watch. This is a unique offering from Alcatel, and it's prepared to connect with your Android or iOS smartphone right out of the box.

First official Star Wars app has Jedi selfies, news, and soundboard

Just in time for San Diego Comic-Con, Disney and Lucasfilm have released the first official Star Wars app for both iOS and Android. The app, simply titled "Star Wars," is not like dozens of games or official tie-ins that we've seen already. It's the first official app that acts as a mobile hub to everything Star Wars related.

Star Wars Uprising gameplay shows age after “Jedi”

Earlier this year Lucasfilm and Disney revealed that "Star Wars: Uprising" would be one of several games that'd forge the future of the film franchise. In-game players would take on the role of a rebel rising up against the Empire immediately following the destruction of the second Death Star. That means this game takes place immediately following Return of the Jedi. Now we get our first brief glimpse of gameplay. Just keep telling yourself that just because it's mobile, it doesn't have to be meaningless - this game is going to have real consequences.

iPhone 6s gets thick with features

First case specifications for the iPhone 6s have been released with height, width, and thickness of the next model. According to this spec sheet, case-makers might have to make some tiny adjustments to their molds. While the iPhone 6s will be the same width and height as its predecessor, it'll be just .2mm thicker. This means that the rubberiest of cases will be fine, while hard metal and plastic cases will need to be made anew. It also means there's more inside this device.

iPhone 6s camera details leaked: 240fps slow motion

Apple's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus camera array documents leak from what appears to be their manufacturing plant company, Foxconn. These documents suggest that the next iPhone's camera array will allow the next iPhones to once again reign supreme over the competition. This is particularly important this generation as both LG and Samsung inch ever closer to overtaking the camera crown in the smartphone business. Several reviewers suggest that the companies have already out-done Apple with their own cameras aboard the Galaxy S6 and the LG G4.
