    Whether it's in Apple's online stores or in its brick and mortar stores, one of the biggest challenges that customers face is that price hump we all get with the sales tax. At times when most states don't force you to pay taxes in order to buy the same things at Amazon, it's obvious that if you were given a choice, you'd rather keep those extra bucks in your pocket. Still, some states are about to launch a couple of tax-free days, and Apple didn't miss the opportunity to remind you. Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina and Tennessee will ...

    As we get closer to September, the amount of rumors regarding the future of the iPhone 6 will only get stronger. There's been a continuous debate over the possible launch of both the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch models of the iPhone 6 that are being rumored, some assuming a simultaneous launch, and others a separate one. Today we get some additional rumors from China, some of which are credible, some of which are questionable. Two separate sources are claiming that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will not receive any sapphire display love when launched in September. According to one of these sources, ...

    It's hard to imagine somebody willing to switch from one smartphone platform to another just because of the exiting features of a voice assistant, especially because either of these can evolve over time. Siri was much less capable than it is today, and the same can be said about Google's Voice Search, but Microsoft seems to believe that Cortana is mature enough to make you want to switch in its new ad. Microsoft's "Siri vs. Cortana - Happy Anniversary" commercial shows us some of the neat tricks that Cortana can do, that you currently can't with Siri. Having Cortana remind you to do ...

    The Internet is full of two things lately: conflicting rumors on the launch date for the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and a ton of dummy units that tease what to expect. The biggest problem with these dummies is that we've learned they aren't close to the level of detail we'll find in the final design, so it's really hard to use these in order to land predictions. Hardware aside, what if you could see how a 4.7-inch iPhone would handle itself if it were a working dummy? Well, instead of calling this a dummy, let's call this a clone as a new video shows us the "Wico6" being tested. This ...

    Apple's quarter results are in, and for those of you non-Apple fans that are hoping for the Cupertino kids to file for bankruptcy any time soon, that's just not going to happen. The company has reported revenue of $37.4 billion, and earnings of $1.28 per share (after last month's seven-for-one stock split). These numbers are above Apple's own $36 billion projections, though a little shy of Wall Street's $37.99 billion forecast, where the earnings per share did exceed the $1.23 projected. Still, if you think all these numbers are positive, that's actually not the case; so prepare to not be ...

    Apple is reportedly going to launch two different iPhone models this year, and even though we've called both devices the iPhone 6, we do know that there are significant differences between both of them. Earlier this year the rumors were that these devices would launch separately, but two credible reports recently have pointed to a launch date of both devices on September 19th. At this point it's hard to confirm that, and with some new reports today of a later date, things have begun to get complicated. A new source is claiming that both iPhone models will have a different name, just like ...

    One benefit that many people have found in owning Apple iOS products is the combination of its AppleCare+ extended warranty, and Apple's Genius Bar service. For $99 you receive two years of warranty protection for any iPad or iPhone, and in case of any accidental damage to the device on your part, you could replace your iPad for $49, or iPhone for $79, with a total of two incidents being covered. Sadly if you didn't purchase the warranty when you bought the product, the most you were allowed to wait was 30 days, though Apple has just decided to change that. As of yesterday Apple is now ...

    Reports keep pouring in of Apple preparing for an iPhone launch in September. It's happened in the last two years, and Apple's recent preparations to begin manufacturing have also revealed much progress. Obviously Apple just designs and then its partners manufacture, and Foxconn in particular has just taken a gigantic step to get ready. Foxconn is reportedly hiring as many as 100,000 employees in mainland China to begin production of the iPhone 6. Pegatron is also reported to increase its work-force by 30% in order to satisfy the demands that Apple has for the production of its future ...

    All images copyright Sarah Jarrett   Looking through Sarah Jarrett's gallery, it's hard to believe these images were made using only an iPhone and an iPad. From painterly landscapes and still lifes to surreal portraiture, Sarah's work is expressive and unique. While many still associate the term "mobile photography" with the occasional selfie or family photo, Sarah is a pioneer in a growing movement of people who create serious fine art on their mobile devices.

    Yes, WWDC 2014 is over, and yes, if you were expecting the event to shed some light on Apple's hardware in the future, you'll sadly be disappointed. The company spent two hours showcasing what we can expect for the future of its software offerings, but those of you expecting hardware will have to wait until Apple's usual fall events. Still, that Apple's partners aren't making some official statements, one that happened today is kind of a shocker. Rarely do we see Apple's partners officially announce that they are working on an Apple product, and specially a product that hasn't been ...

    Apple has never been famous for building crazy products, but it has been quite notorious for building prototypes of anything it thinks of. Apple is also famous for cannibalizing its own legacy products with new ones in order to retain relevance in converging markets, as we saw with the iPod and iPhone. The question is if Apple is actually considering doing the same between the iPhone and iPad, as iPad sales haven't really wowed anyone? Reports have it that Apple is testing an odd and crazy 4-inch iPhone prototype that can actually unfolds to become an iPad mini. The details of how this ...

    One of the most disappointing parts of last year's iPad lineup for some was the lack of Touch ID sensors for biometric authentication on it. Apple will use Touch ID sensors on all of its 2014 iOS devices, reports KGI. This news leads us to believe that all new iPhone, iPad, and (possibly) iPod touch models from the year will support this kind of authentication. Shipments of the sensor are set to increase by 233% this year, according to the same report. This isn't surprising if these new iOS devices indeed get the scanner. These sensors will also reportedly get an upgrade -- Apple may be ...

    With privacy becoming more and more a topic lately, a lot of us were shocked to learn that a ton of the companies we use every day are not doing a good job in protecting our data. Apple was one of these companies, which actually ranked the lowest in its commitment to protect your data just a couple of months ago when all this scandal became public. Since then it seems that Apple has been hard at work in changing this, and it turns out that it actually exceeded expectations. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the ...
