New iPod Touch rumored for late 2015, but low-end iPhone unlikely

Now that the Apple Watch has finally been released, the world can begin returning to normal. And with that comes rumors and speculation about Apple's other products. The two latest pieces of information focus on less-promoted devices like the iPod Touch and a cheaper, low-end iPhone successor. The near-forgotten iPod Touch was last updated in October 2012, so even a minor refresh could be welcome, while a followup to 2013's iPhone 5C was absent from last September's iPhone 6 debut.

Apple Watch requirements: lower friction, faster access

Apple Watch requirements: lower friction, faster access

The Apple Watch has been launched today - more or less - and is being proliferated around the world through the eyes and ears of onlookers. While some consumers have gotten their devices, most of the population of the world has yet to jump aboard the smartwatch train - or even the wearables train. As such, we've had a talk with Andrej Kostresevic, CEO for Nomads, about what it'll take to bring the smartwatch to the public, starting with the idea that Android Wear has a "lack of friction" and the idea that Google Glass "failed."

Zagg Pocket Keyboard Review – the last phablet keyboard you’ll ever need

Zagg Pocket Keyboard Review – the last phablet keyboard you’ll ever need

The Zagg Pocket Keyboard is a product I did not expect would be as awesome as it turned out to be. Zagg has made some awesome products in the past - they've never really let us down in the past - but they're not know for their particularly flashy or otherwise massively memorable presentations. That's not what we need here. What we need is a keyboard that works for a large smartphone - or any detached screen sort of device - that also folds down to a very small size. Zagg did it right.

Understanding Apple Watch: Apps, Glances and Notifications

Understanding Apple Watch: Apps, Glances and Notifications

The great thing about a wearable like Apple Watch is that you need never miss anything from your digital life; the terrible thing is that it’s all too easy to get overwhelmed. While it might seem like a fantastic idea to offload every beep, ping, and vibration from the smartphone in your pocket to an easily-checked spot on your wrist, the reality is that not everything needs - or deserves - top tier attention. Luckily Apple’s notification options are reasonably granular, but that doesn’t mean this new flavor of apps can’t be confusing. Here’s what you need to know.

The Best Apple Watch Apps: Starter Pack

The first day you own an Apple Watch is a strange one, to be sure.

Why I do not plan on buying an Apple Watch

Why I do not plan on buying an Apple Watch

I don't own an iPhone. I really could end this train of thought with that, but here's what's more: study after study has shown that most people planning on purchasing an Apple Watch also have an iPhone. Many of those people also wear a watch on a regular basis. Apple is in a pretty good position to displace the watches on the wrists of iPhone users over the next few weeks, as it were. But for me - there're really no way I'd end up with an Apple Watch on my wrist.

iPhone 7 and an Apple Watch: a monstrous creation

iPhone 7 and an Apple Watch: a monstrous creation

Today a new concept has arisen showing what the iPhone 7 could be if Apple absolutely lost its mind and decided to retrofit Apple Watch features to it. What you're about to see is a monster.

Let's just make it a reality with absolute wild abandon for all things sleek and useful!

Push for Apple to unlock iPhone’s FM receiver chip access

Push for Apple to unlock iPhone’s FM receiver chip access

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has brought a previously hidden iPhone feature to light. Almost all smartphones have an FM receiver chip built into their hardware. It's actually the same chip that is used for WiFi and Bluetooth functionality. In the iPhone 6, it's the Murata 339S0228, and the FM utility is completely switched off. According to the NAB, the FM chip could be an invaluable feature for the public to utilize in an emergency situation, especially considering how cellular and data networks can become overloaded in the case of an emergency.
