The final countdown is on. Apple has a record number of pre-orders under its belt for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and as Friday - and thus the first deliveries - fast approaches, many are anticipating a new iOS 8 smartphone in their lives tomorrow. Question is, with the huge changes involved in this generation, does everybody understand quite what they're getting?
In an interview set to be published in full in Time Magazine on the 29th of this month, Bono and U2 have spoken up on the "punk rock" nature of their deal with Apple. He suggests that Apple’s relationship with U2 is like "the Medicis’ patronage of Michelangelo." The full interview also includes the rest of the band: The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr.
The next generation in monopod technology is here - the Selfie Arm. Made by Satechi to allow you to take advanced selfies as often and as professionally as you want, this device works with most smartphones on the market today. Ellen wishes she had this when she snapped the Galaxy Note 3 selfie earlier this year.
This morning you may have seen the instructions for Apple Wave, a feature you’ve likely never heard of before for iOS 8. That’s because it is not real. Like our favorite iOS 7 waterproofing hoax, this feature is the idea of a trickster hoping to get you to toss your iPhone in the microwave, thereby blowing it up.
iOS 8's addition of third-party keyboard support may answer one of the most common requests among iPhone owners, but not all keyboards are created equal. While the first add-on keyboards - such as SwiftKey and Fleksy - are already showing up in the App Store, they're all missing one key button: voice dictation.
Did you pre-order an iPhone 6? If you decided to wait a bit, your wait may be a touch longer than you’d like. A new report suggests Foxconn, the primary manufacturing arm for the iPhone 6, is having trouble keeping up with demand.
Overnight there’s been no sleep. Not while the goat roams free. Goat Simulator has been released for iOS for iPhone/iPad/iWhatever as well as Android, and it’s glorious. We’ve taken the time to get acquainted with the first big segment and let me tell you: this game is the first on-screen controls-having Android/iOS game I’ve ever truly not minded using on-screen controls with.
Digital photography isn't all just about megapixels, which some smartphone OEMs would like you to otherwise think. But even then the iPhone's cameras could perhaps do a bit better. That's were Relonch comes in, an iPhone accessory that its makers claim lets you take Magazine-class photos and instantly upload them to the cloud, hopefully only if you tell it to.
Android OEMs aren't the only ones worried about switchers getting lost on their first Android experience. Preparing for the possible flood of Android users switching sides to the now larger iPhone 6, Apple has put up a new support page dedicated specifically to help them move their precious data as painlessly as possible.
