Apple Watch independent apps cut out the iPhone

As rumored in the lead up to WWDC 2019, Apple revealed today that big changes are coming to the Apple Watch in watchOS 6.

It looks like iTunes is living on borrowed time

iTunes has been around for a very long time - since 2001 in fact - but it may not be much longer before we're saying goodbye to it.

WWDC 2019 might be a sad show for some iPhone users

WWDC 2019 is right around the corner, and though the show will likely hold some surprises, one topic that's sure to come up is iOS 13. It's during WWDC that we'll learn which iPhones are getting iOS 13, and Apple certainly has a tough show to follow in that regard - last year, it announced that all phones running iOS 11 would receive upgrades iOS 12. Will the company be making a similar announcement this year? A new report today claims that it won't be.

iPhone update bringing back some double-screen magic

iPhone update bringing back some double-screen magic

A report this week suggests a number of new iOS feature updates in the very near future, one of which is radical. Of course anyone could point to any of the features and call them radical if they did so choose, but for me, the double-screen feature could be life-changing. Imagine being able to use any device to display and control any computer - that's within our grasp.

At WWDC, watchOS 5 paves way to Apple smart glasses

At WWDC, watchOS 5 paves way to Apple smart glasses

Apple's message at WWDC 2018 that we're too attached to our iPhone seems, for a company the fortunes of which are so closely tied to its smartphone, a strange one. From iOS 12's Screen Time tattling on the apps you're most addicted to, to watchOS 5's increasing independence, you'd almost think Apple was having a change of heart after a decade of making iPhones.
