Apple contends on innovation: “New is easy. Right is hard.”

Supposing you've seen the calls of opposition from Apple nay-sayers over the past week, you'll be interested to know that the heads of Apple aren't immune to talk of "non-innovative" releases in the iPhone.

Google Wallet for iOS lands (but misses NFC)

Google Wallet for iOS lands (but misses NFC)

Google Wallet has finally launched for iOS, though since Apple's iPhone and iPad lack NFC the app focuses on sending mobile payments rather than in-store use. While on Android the focus of Google Wallet has been to turn smartphones into tap-to-pay credit cards, Apple's continued avoidance of NFC has forced a less revolutionary approach on iOS: the app effectively works as a place to corral loyalty cards and payment details, as well as to send money digitally.

Apple reinvented touchscreen smartphones; now it's reinventing iOS.

iPhone 5c Review

iPhone 5c Review

Could the iPhone 5c be the most misunderstood iPhone so far? From early whispers of a budget model for emerging markets, though chatter of a new entry-level phone, the iPhone 5c in fact slots right in the middle of Apple's range, relegating last year's flagship to early retirement and leaving the iPhone 4S to survive another day.

Does that make the iPhone 5s the automatic choice in smartphones? Read on for our full review.
