iOS App Store update will make you subscribe and see ads

WWDC 2016 will play host to Apple's big update to the next generation of their App Store. Inside the app store, Apple hopes to change the way app developers make money from their apps. While traditional one-time-fees for apps will remain, Apple will open the doors to subscription costs for apps of all sorts. In addition to this, Apple will be changing the amount of cash they make from subscription costs on apps sold by developers.

Apple must sell locally-sourced goods to sell iPhones in India

Apple must sell locally-sourced goods to sell iPhones in India

China and India are today considered to be the largest and fastest growing smartphone markets outside the US, but both have their own quirks that are preventing Apple from gaining a solid foothold. While China's restrictive regime and censorship has Cupertino's digital content services in limbo, India's economical policies are proving to be a stumbling block to selling iPhones and iPads directly. A senior government official revealed that Apple, like other foreign companies, must sell at least 30% locally sourced goods if it wants to set up shop in India.

Apple needs to make a Chromebook

Apple needs to make a Chromebook

Why would Apple consider adopting a hardware and software model similar to Google's ChromeOS for an Apple Chromebook? Would that be absolute madness? Or would Apple be smart to make use of the ecosystems of apps it already has in place in new and interesting ways? We've not yet seen Google's newest move with ChromeOS take shape in the wild, it's clear that there's some real interest in adopting - nay, accepting - apps made for Android coming to a desktop environment. Now is the time when Apple should open the path from mobile to laptop.

Adonit Pixel is the stylus that your iPad needs

Adonit Pixel is the stylus that your iPad needs

When you use a tablet, it's pretty simple to point your finger and poke at the screen. And this works great for most apps, as they're designed to be used by our fingers. However, there are times when you need a finer touch that your sausage fingers just can't produce. And that's why Adonit has been working hard on their new stylus.

Apple hit with patent suit because iPhones are phones

Apple hit with patent suit because iPhones are phones

Patent trolls are nothing new. They may have even existed as long as it became profitable to sue people for patent infringement. Of late, however, they have increased in their aggressiveness and boldness, whether out of desperation or out of greed. Case in point this latest patent lawsuit levied upon Apple by a Texas company named Corydoras Technologies, LLC. Its beef is that all of Apple's iPhones, and some of its iPads, can make calls, take selfies, do video chats, and block incoming calls. Practically what makes a smartphone a smartphone.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 needs to be a LOT more magical than this

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 needs to be a LOT more magical than this

Today we've come across a patent for a new version of a device that you may have heard of before. It's the Apple Pencil. What's that got to do with the Samsung Galaxy Note 6? One very key element - the S Pen. What it can do, what it can't do, and what we're going to expect it to do now that Apple has (finally) presented a stylus of their own. The patent we're seeing makes the Samsung Galaxy Note's S Pen look like no more than a decent first attempt at a higher-level stylus device. Can they both write and draw? Sure. That's where similarities end. See our Samsung portal for the most updated word on this device.

iPhone 7 Pro feature may give Galaxy Note 6 users a wake-up call

iPhone 7 Pro feature may give Galaxy Note 6 users a wake-up call

The release of the iPhone 7 Pro - or iPhone 7 Plus, whatever they end up calling it - could be a wake-up call for Android-loving Samsung users worldwide. Why? Because Apple could be invading one of the areas the Samsung Galaxy Note still holds sway over in the smart device universe. The iPhone 7 Pro's ability to work with the Apple Pencil, for example, could be Apple's inroad to taking command of the Android phablet userbase.

iPhone gets YouTube VR with “Cardboard” update

iPhone gets YouTube VR with “Cardboard” update

Google has brought on virtual reality-like viewing to the YouTube for iOS app at last, weeks and months after adding such functionality to the Android version of the app. This functionality for the YouTube app for iPhone and iPad is very similar to that of the Android version, adding a "Cardboard" icon to the app's user interface when a video is 360-degree-enabled and the device that's playing it is turned to its side (landscape mode, that is). This move extends VR functionality to iOS just days before Google's big yearly developer conference.

PC market needs the “WOW” factor to revitalize buyer’s interest

PC market needs the “WOW” factor to revitalize buyer’s interest

We've all heard the marketing spiels before. "The PC is dead". "This is the device that will replace your PC". Or even "this is the new PC". Whatever the tune, they almost all have the same chorus: replacing the venerable yet perhaps outdated computing devices, otherwise known as desktops and laptops, most of them running Windows versions of ages past. And maybe they're right. Maybe these will indeed replace those PCs. Maybe the sudden surge in popularity of 2-in-1's, detachable, and convertibles are going to save the dying PC market. Or maybe it will only for a short time, because what consumers these days are looking for aren't just PC replacement. Ultimately, they're looking for new, modern experiences.
