    The iPhones (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) of 2014 are bigger; both of them. Apple has finally decided to give up on whatever it was that made the company stick to the form factor of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, and the slightly smaller ones on the 4s, 4, and previous generation. Samsung played a huge role in setting a trend for bigger smartphones with its first Galaxy Note, and, ever since, the industry has been moving in the direction of bigger screens. The way it was before the two iPhones of this year, most of the competition's mini phones were larger than Apple's flagship. However, Apple ...

    Long-time Apple users, especially those who juggled their mobile subscriptions between iPhones and devices on competing platforms, have only been all too aware of some lousy logic Apple's iMessage service has been employing when trying to work out where to send texts. Even after moving on to another OS, texts from iOS users meant to go to your number would end up stuck in an iMessage black hole, never reaching you as intended. It sure took long enough, but Apple has now finally made available an online tool for performing iMessage deregistration, mitigating the impact of this issue. ...

    Rumors about Apple's grand plans for sapphire-screened iPhones fell apart in spectacular fashion this year, with the sapphire only ending up on select Apple Watch models (well, when those come out, at least) and Apple’s sapphire partner GT Advanced Technologies filing for bankruptcy. As part of those bankruptcy proceedings, GTAT and its executives have submitted statements with the court, and today one from GTAT COO Daniel Squiller has become publicly available. Within, he tells a tale of a rather one-sided deal with Apple, and the details are certainly far from complimentary towards ...

    It's hard to review an iPad these days. The last Apple products to cross our review desk, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, were significant upgrades that catapulted the company into the realm of the large-format smartphone, while maintaining the ease-of-use and reliability that made the iPhone so popular to begin with. The Apple products that keep Pocketnow running day in and day out are some of the most impressive computers we've ever used, with even our lower-tier MacBook Airs capable of handling very intense video production tasks every day for years without giving up the ghost. In the palm ...

    If the simple fact that you're using an Apple product makes you sleep well at night, without worrying about malware, it's time to change your perspective. WireLurker is a family of Apple malware discovered by the Palo Alto Networks that is capable of infecting both your iOS as well as Mac OS devices.  iOS devices can be infected through infected Mac OS X computers, or by downloading apps to your phone that have been repackaged to contain the malware bit. Its presence has been reported in China, and 467 OS X applications have been reported as infected on the third party Maiyadi App Store ...

    Cloud storage has gained a significant level of popularity lately, and that’s mainly because technology is helping it become seamless. Surely it would’ve been easier if US Carriers wouldn’t have dropped their unlimited data plans, but it’s hard to deny that things “just work” in most of the cloud storage services we see in the market. One of the pioneers of the cloud mentality was Apple with its MobileMe services, though that particular story was so full of horror that the company ended up fixing it and rebranding it to iCloud. Steve Jobs envisioned a service that would ...

    By all accounts, the release of the Apple Watch is still many months away – and to hear the latest rumors, even that anticipated early 2015 start to sales may not be quite so “early.” But eventually, the smartwatch will go up for sale, and based on Apple's reputation alone, it's almost guaranteed to sell like hotcakes. When that happens, though, just how much will you find yourself shelling out for one of these wearables? We've heard rumors talking about the possibility of a sky-high price for the premium gold Watch Edition model, as well a quite-pricy-in-its-own-right steel version, ...

    If you're anything like us when it comes to mobile devices, you end up straddling the line between platforms. Sure, you may be an Android guy when it comes to your personal phone, but maybe you use BlackBerry for work, or you just really prefer the iPad when you're dealing with tablets. In a perfect world, we'd be able to move from platform to platform as easily as we put down one device and pick up another, and while cross-platform cloud services have made things like accessing our documents much more convenient across disparate operating systems, media's been a tougher nut to crack. ...

    Nobody likes to get left behind when it comes to mobile updates. In a perfect world, maybe we'd upgrade to the latest and greatest hardware the moment it came out, but financial realities have a way of forcing us to make do with the older stuff for as long as it holds out. Luckily for iOS users, Apple has a decent track record for supporting its older gear, like we saw this year with iOS 8 handling hardware as old as 2011's iPhone 4S or iPad 2. But while iOS 8 runs on such devices, newer software like that can be pushing the limits of what they can handle, leaving users with an experience ...

    When, oh when, will Apple fans be able to finally slap the company's upcoming wearable on their wrists? When the Apple Watch launched in early September, the manufacturer didn't have a lot of firm information to share regarding plans for the smartwatch's release, saying little more than that sales would begin sometime early next year. Well, what the heck's “early” supposed to mean, anyway? First month of the year? First half of the year? A few weeks after the Apple Watch went official, we heard some rumors that Apple might be envisioning a start date for sales that would make the watch ...

    Leading up to last month's iPad launch event, there were three models we had been keeping in mind: the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, both of which we ultimately saw Apple introduce, as well as the rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro. At least, that last one lingered in our thoughts as a remote possibility, though sources which had mentioned Apple's plans for the jumbo-sized tablet seemed to suggest that it might not emerge until sometime in 2015. Sure enough, it failed to make an appearance, but now we're all the more curious to get to the bottom of its story. Over the weekend, a new report on the ...

    We've seen a lot of reports of the iPhone 6 Plus bending; while most of them were intentionally inflicted, a small number of early adopters did indeed face this problem with their brand new devices, but, according to a user report from Reddit, Apple might have quietly fixed the issue. However, there's no solid proof at the moment, aside from the user's own investigation and findings. Long story short, the user has two identical iPhone 6 Plus units (varying only in storage size). One purchased on September 20, the other one, more recently. After investigating with a microscope, as well as a ...

    HERE Maps has sort of been the salvation for navigation for Windows Phone users, especially offline navigation. The praises of this feature are sang across the internet almost any time the service is mentioned. Many prefer Nokia’s take on mapping over the baked-in Bing Maps on Microsoft’s mobile platform and understandably so. Although Nokia’s mapping services, such as navigation or transit directions, are divided across multiple applications, it’s typically a more reliable and renowned service. HERE Maps is one of the parts of the business Nokia didn’t sell to Microsoft, so ...

    The Apple-branded cross-carrier SIM chips in the latest iPad models seem like such a great idea on paper: sell users a device that's all ready to be activated with the carrier of their choice, without needing to install new hardware. As we've seen, though, the reality of the situation hasn't been quite so smooth and idyllic, but the existence of this component alone sure felt like a step in the right direction. Despite all the potential such SIMs offer, it doesn't sound like you should bet on finding one in your next iPhone, though, as Apple VP Greg Joswiak explains why the Apple SIM is a ...
