  1. If you’ve been skeptical of the iPhone 6 leaks and information that has surfaced so far, perhaps today’s very plausible leaked mockup of the forthcoming handset in silver will pique your interest. Sure, with so many months to go until the purported release of the handset, we cannot be entirely sure of what’s in store, but given how lifelike this particular leak appears to be, it’s also hard to ignore the fact that we may already know what Apple has its up its sleeve. Not that it particularly needs to be reiterated, but we expect that the iPhone 6 will offer a curved rear shell akin to the iPod
  2. The iPhone 5s debuted with a fingerprint scanner for added security, but it turns out Siri can be a double agent – bypassing a pass code or even a TouchID-secured screen on iOS 7.1.1 is as easy as asking politely (the fingerprint scanner isn’t 100% trustworthy either). The trick allows you to browse all contacts stored on the phone and make a call out to anyone of them. On a locked screen, you can activate Siri and ask for the contacts. The virtual assistant will correctly ask you to unlock the phone first. But if you instead ask Siri to make a call, Siri is a lot less demanding.
  3. The iPhone 6 seems to be the subject of a new leak or piece of information almost every day, and with so many reports flying about, it can be rather difficult to keep abreast of what’s going on. Here, we try to establish a little coherence with a brief run-through of what we think we know so far. With five months to go until the supposed release, it’s worth making clear the point that any information gathered could well be inaccurate, and even if it originates from a relatively legitimate source, could well be subject to change. However, it must also be noted that during the past couple of wee
  4. Apple has reportedly scheduled a media event for Tuesday, September 9, which we can only assume will be the unveiling of its new iPhone lineup expected this fall. Apple has scheduled a big media event for Tuesday, Sept. 9 — a date to which Apple numerologists will strain to attribute significance. As with September events past, the focal point of this one is to be Apple’s next-generation iPhones, which are expected to feature larger displays of 4.7 and 5.5 inches and run speedy new A8 processors. Apple declined comment. While an event in the second week of September would line up nicely with p
  5. The Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act, passed by Congress late last week, was signed into law by President Obama on Friday, making it fully legal to unlock mobile phones in the United States. The new law undoes a decision made by the Library of Congress in 2012 to not renew an exemption in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and thusly made it illegal for consumers to arbitrarily unlock mobile devices. Almost immediately, petitions and new bills started to get drafted and indeed, a bill was proposed over a year ago to “fix” the DMCA, but nothing happened despi
  6. Ever since the inception of the App Store, Apple has notoriously banned all BitTorrent related apps. However, this week a native BitTorrent client managed to get approval, albeit not without sacrifice. Hoping to prevent trouble, the developer only allows users to download from a small selection of known legal sources. Over the past years dozens of apps have been rejected from the App Store because they mention the word BitTorrent. Apple defended this policy and told developers that their apps were not allowed “because this category of applications is often used for the purpose of infringing

    The Pangu 1.2 jailbreak tool is out, and is available for download right now for Windows and Mac. This version brings with it a bunch of crucial fixes and enhancements. More details and download links can be found right here. From the get-go, you’ll notice that Pangu enhances the overall jailbreak experience for the user by implementing a bunch of bug fixes. Issues such as the dreaded boot loop for iPhone 4 / 4s users have been fixed along with other niggling bugs. The complete changelog of today’s release is as follows: Fix boot loop bug for some iPhone4/4s. Fix sandbox log issue. afc2 is
  8. According to veteran Apple pundit John Gruber, Apple’s smartwatch effort will bear fruit next month, the very same month in which the iPhone 6 is expected to be unveiled in a dedicated keynote. But the revelation does not spill the beans whether or not the iWatch will indeed be announced alongside the iPhone 6 or whether it would be announced separately. It looks like Motorola’s designers tried to draw as much attention as they could to the 360’s stupid flat-tire display shape. The only way this could get funnier would be if it doesn’t even ship until after Apple announces their wrist wearable
  9. Nuance, the folks behind the Samsung’s and Apple’s in-house voice assistant programs S Voice and Siri, as well as other commercial speech recognition applications like Dragon Naturally Speaking, are set to potentially get bought out by the Korean company. In anticipation of the potential deal, Nuance’s market cap jumped from a valuation of $5.5 billion to almost $6 billion yesterday. What’s interesting here is that Nuance’s speech recognition engine powers offerings from both Samsung and Apple, and could be used potentially as leverage against the other if one of the two were to control
  10. Apple has released the iOS 7.1.2 update. The update brings with it some bug fixes and security updates. The update includes:Improved iBeacon connectivity and stabilityFixes a bug with data transfer for some 3rd party accessories, including barcode scannersCorrects an issue with data protection class of Mail attachmentsThe update is around 28-30MB depending upon the device, if you download on the device itself. Along with iOS, Apple also pushed an update for OS X, bumping it to 10.9.4. This one has more useful changes and something you'd actually notice, including:Fixes an issue that prev
  11. The upcoming iPhone 6 is said to enter mass production in July, and just days before that timeframe, we’re seeing an influx of leaks. This one in particular is our first sighting of the supposed screen glass of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and you can see very clearly that there is just a slight curve around the edges. While earlier rumors have speculated that we might see a curved screen on the iPhone 6, this latest leak shows that the curve might be a very subtle one. Such supposed tapered edges of the next iPhone should make it easier to slide your finger from the edge of the display. Swipe gest
  12. Back in May, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told his clients that Apple would be embedding the home button on all its 2014 releases, with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. A leaked picture from Taiwan reseller Apple Club, allegedly shows (from bottom up) the Apple iPad Air 2, the Apple iPad mini 3 and the Apple iPhone 6. All three models show the distinctive Touch ID circle. The units that we are looking at are said to be "models," which we take as a sign that these are non operational mockups of the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and the iPhone 6. Last year, Cupertino released only one model with Tou
  13. The New York Attorney General has signed agreements with Google and Microsoft to add "kill switches" to Android and Windows Phone devices. It comes as part of the "Secure our Smartphones" initiative, where the report stresses the importance of kill switch safeguards for mobile phone platforms in order to keep user data safe. With these "kill switches", you'll be able to render your phone useless, remotely, in the event of its theft. The kill switch issue has been one that's been hotly discussed. For example, in California, the kill switch idea was immediately rejected, but then the state rece
  14. The iWatch is coming this fall and in multiple models, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal. Apple's rumored wearable device will come in multiple screen sizes and will feature over 10 sensors track one's health and fitness. The new wrist device from Apple will include more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness, these people said. Apple aims to address an overarching criticism of existing smartwatches that they fail to provide functions significantly different from that of a smartphone, said a person familiar with the matter. Apple showed its inter
  15. Quanta Computer will start mass production of the Apple iWatch in July, according to Reuters. The iWatch will have a display that measures 2.5-inches diagonally and is slightly rectangular, revealed a source. The watch face is said to protrude slightly from the band, creating an arched shape. The device will also feature a touch interface and wireless charging capabilities. The source said Apple expects to ship 50 million units within the first year of the product's release, although these types of initial estimates can be subject to change. The watch is currently in trial production a
  16. At WWDC, Apple made a big deal about the improved safety that iOS 8 brings to its devices. Lots of these new features, however, aren't readily visible for us to see. Security expert, Frederic Jacobs has discovered that iOS 8 uses random network identifiers when it scans for WiFi access ports. This means that the only time that the identity of your iDevice is discovered is when you actually connect to a w WiFi hotspot. So operators of hotspot locations won't know anything about your iDevice or get your position until you actually connect to their network. Although this seems like a ve
  17. Google Wallet users have been able to scan credit cards with their device’s camera for a while now, and it looks like Apple is getting their feet wet with the mobile payment game as well. Well, it’s a step closer, at least. iPhone users can now scan their credit cards with their cell phone’s camera in iOS 8. There are some restrictions however, learn more about the features after the jump. iOS 8′s ability to scan cards is currently restricted to online orders that you make through Safari. So let’s say you’re shopping on Amazon but don’t want to manually punch in your credit card info, y

    Apple's iOS 8 goes official

    Apple took the wraps off iOS 8 during today’s WWDC keynote. The latest OS release brings a host of new features and improvements, headed by the ability to closely interact with the freshly announced OS X Yosemite. The feature which allows iOS 8 to interact with OS X Yosemite is dubbed Handoff. An expansion of AirDrop, the functionality allows iOS 8 devices to share a multitude of tasks and data with OS X Yosemite, including phone calls messages, files, etc. The newly announced iCloud Drive will unsurprisingly be also available on iOS 8. It will be neatly integrated into the OS and is bound t
  19. Apple has just announced the latest version of its desktop operating system, Mac OS X Yosemite. Continuing the naming scheme of famous California landmarks introduced with OS X Mavericks, Yosemite introduces translucent windows menus, redesigned dock icons, an updated Spotlight search feature, iCloud Drive cloud storage integration, and a new widget bar. Mac OS X Yosemite features a fair amount of new visual flair. Besides the aforementioned translucent window menus and iOS-style icons, there’s a new “dark mode” for fans of a less obtrusive black color scheme. But it’s not just cosmetic – Ap

    Beats by Apple

    Apple is preparing to finalize the purchase this week. The acquisition was initially said to be valued at $3.2 billion, but the company has rounded down the amount to a $3 billion, after what sources indicate is a more accurate evaluation of Beats' actual worth. Several reports surfaced earlier this week of Beats co-owner Dr. Dre's allegedly inebriated boast that he would become the first billionaire rapper following the acquisition, which some sources claim put the entire deal at risk. Ironically, the lower $3 billion valuation would mean Dr. Dre would grosses a maximum of $750 million from
  21. It’s almost that time of year again. The time of year where everyone sits down and feverishly between all the live blogs to try and get the lowdown on what is going on at WWDC. With this year’s event kicking off on June 2nd, all eyes are now on the Moscone Center venue where Apple holds its yearly developer conference. As is the case every year, we’ve all been keeping an eye out for the first banners to go up at Moscone, if only to try and get an idea as to what Apple will be talking about, and what will be the main theme throughout the event. As ever, there’ll be plenty of people trying to
  22. The 2014 FIFA World Cup fever is at an all time high and we’re looking for ways to keep tabs on our favorite team as they make their way to the top of the charts, and if you’re a user of Google Now on iOS and Android, then tracking your favorite team just got a lot easier. Just moments ago, the official Google Search for iOS app was updated which allows users to see live score updates in form of cards in real time as each game unfolds. Android users also get the taste of the action, and adding your teams on both iOS and Android is as simple as scrolling all the way down on the Goo
  23. Are you a Google Wallet user on iOS that has been looking for a faster way to use the service to buy your stuff? Well you’re in luck, as Wallet’s 2-tap instant checkout’s been made available for Apple’s mobile platform. Android users have had access to the fast buying fun for quite a while now, but now iOS users can get in on the action as well. It’s known as Google’s Instant Buy API, and with it enabled, when you shop on your mobile device all you need to do is click the “Buy with Google” icon on the checkout page, click twice, and make your purchase. All of this quick buying may
  24. Apple’s Find My iPhone users in Australia have been hacked by someone or a group of people hiding behind the pseudonym Oleg Pliss (otherwise a respected software engineer and technology scientist). Some of the affected devices are put into lost mode with a message saying “device hacked”. Some users report demands of $100 sent by PayPal as ransom. The information comes from numerous Apple users that have gone to Apple’s support forums complaining about the issue. Allegedly there were also reports from New Zealand users and one Australian currently in London. Apple is yet to officially address t
  25. Several major Silicon Valley companies have reached a settlement with some 64,000 workers for allegedly colluding not to hire each other’s employees. Apple, after adamantly denying that former CEO Steve Jobs made an agreement with Intel, Google, and Adobe brass not to poach employees, has agreed to settle out of court. The lawsuit was enacted on behalf of Silicon Valley employees that accused the companies of conspiring to keep wages down and minimize their ability to find employment with the competition. Also revealed were allegations that Steve Jobs threatened Google exec Eric Schmidt after
