Apple TV Bluetooth Remote spotted in El Capitan code

Apple TV Bluetooth Remote spotted in El Capitan code

Hidden deep within the code for the newest Beta of Apple's OS X El Capitan rests a mention of a Bluetooth remote. This remote control could be for a lot of things - Apple's even gone so far as to release remote controls for its laptops in the past. But what's most likely, and what makes the most sense given Apple's schedule of releases, is this device being a remote for an Apple TV. This remote could very well be the first mention of a remote that could control all manner of Apple devices, too.

4K 21.5-inch iMac revealed in El Capitan Beta build

Inside the newest build of OS X El Capitan comes mention of Apple's newest desktop device, one with a 21.5-inch 4K display. While we can't be 100% certain this is a display aimed at a new iMac, Apple's desktop and laptop lineup do leave room right this moment for just such a device. This would make way for the current 21.5-inch iMac to be retired while a new version with 4096 x 2304 pixels to come through. This device will likely be revealed by Apple within the next couple of months.

iPhones on T-Mobile getting hit with blue screen of death, crashes

If you have an iPhone and T-Mobile is your carrier of choice, there's a growing issue that you should be aware of.

No, your phone’s battery isn’t spying on you

No, your phone’s battery isn’t spying on you

A video showing an NFC-clad sticker on a battery in a smartphone has gone viral today. This video suggests that this smartphone was using an NFC sticker to "record every photo of yours on your battery." What we're going to need to do right now is get very serious and very clear about this situation. Your battery - and the NFC antenna that may or may not be attached to it - is not stealing your photos and sending them to our estranged government overlords. It's just not.

Messenger drops Facebook account requirement

Messenger drops Facebook account requirement

Facebook Messenger offers more features than chatting, and some use it even if they don't bother with their Facebook account. For those who fall into the latter group, there's good news: the recent Messenger update has brought a handful of changes, the most notable of which is that you no longer require a Facebook account to use the chatting app. Instead, users can just provide their phone number and go from there. The change has arrived with both the Android and the iOS apps.

iOS 9 will temporarily delete apps for OS updates if needed

iOS 9 will temporarily delete apps for OS updates if needed

As we found out earlier this month, iOS 9 will support older devices like the iPhone 4s. Some users planning to update will no doubt be doing so with limited available storage, which typically necessitates deleting data and uninstalling apps until the required space is available. Not hard, but usually a waste of time and hassle. With iOS 9 that changes -- developers have spotted a new feature in iOS 9 that temporarily deletes apps to free up space, then automatically reinstalls them after the OS update is finished.

Google Music “free” Review: turning Apple Music’s tide

Google Music “free” Review: turning Apple Music’s tide

Google ads advertisement-supported "free" streaming radio stations to their Google Music service. This push creates more of a Pandora sort of model to their already in-service subscription-based model than it does an Apple battler, but the timing is right on. Just as Apple summons more press with a response to Taylor Swift's request for cash, Google aims to cut in with a release of a whole new way to interject with a service that doesn't cost users anything - any cash, that is to say.

Now that the Apple Watch has reached Apple Stores for the first time yesterday, now not 24 hours later we've got details on the second generation. This Apple Watch 2, or Apple Watch S, as we're going to go ahead and assume it'll be called, will have a front-facing camera - aka a FaceTime camera, the ability to work without an iPhone, and similar innards.
