Office for iPhone debuts as Microsoft drops 365 sub need

Microsoft refuses to slow down on its software push, with a new free Office suite for iPhone and by dropping its Office 365 subscription requirement for its iOS and upcoming Android apps, as it redoubles its efforts to grab mobile user share. The new Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps for iPhone - taking on Apple's own Pages, Numbers, and Keynote - arrive alongside updates to the same apps for iPad, but also see Microsoft announce a new Office for Android tablets beta program. Though not quite open for business yet, Android tablet owners can sign up for when the apps are released in early 2015.

T-Mobile CEO: Don’t buy your iPad from us

T-Mobile CEO: Don’t buy your iPad from us

Outspoken T-Mobile CEO John Legere has weighed in on the ongoing Apple SIM confusion, highlighting the discrepancies between carriers in how they support (or sabotage) Apple's scheme to pick and choose with data plan flexibility. Apple SIM was, at least as Apple originally intended it, a way to bypass carrier lock-in, but the networks themselves refused to be so readily sidelined. Meanwhile, Legere also had a surprising reason for why when you go into a T-Mobile store and buy an iPad it comes with a SIM locked to his network - and an even more surprising solution.

iPad mini 3 teardown: there’s that pesky NFC again

Immediately following the iFixit teardown of the iPad Air 2, they've moved on to the iPad mini 3. This device contains much of the same hardware included in the iPad mini 2 - originally called the iPad mini with Retina Display, but now you'll find a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a new gold option on the outside, and - surprise!

iPad Air 2 registers with “secret” NFC? Not so fast…

Signs of NFC hardware in the iPad Air 2 have prompted speculation that Apple could turn the tablet into an Apple Pay cash register replacement, though it's almost certain not to be something the company could enable in this generation. A recent teardown of the new 9.7-inch tablet found that it contains the same NFC chip as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Since Apple doesn't list NFC among the iPad Air 2's connectivity options, that has led to chatter that it's a feature-in-waiting; however, it's unlikely to pan out that way.

iPad Air 2 teardown confirms Apple did not defy laws of physics

Wondering what mysteries are inside the iPad Air 2? Apple didn't leave itself much room for surprises in its new flagship tablet, with the 6.1 mm slate not only the company's thinnest, but also its most powerful. As we found in our review of the iPad Air 2, components like the 1.49GHz tri-core Apple A8X processor and the newly fully-laminated display certainly keep iOS 8.1 moving along swiftly, but the team over at iFixit are more intrigued about how they all fit together physically.
