By about 41 mins ago.

There have been plenty of fantastic Android smartphones released over the last year, but none have generated quite as much excitement as the surprising OnePlus One. Seemingly from out of nowhere, OnePlus burst onto the scene with its new smartphone featuring a range of impressive specifications and an open source operating system. Obviously, Android users were champing at the bit to get their hands on the phone, but months later, the phone still isn’t available to the public. More →

A surprisingly small number of people have installed iOS 8 so far

iOS 8 released with great fanfare on Wednesday but so far comparatively few people have downloaded it and installed it compared with last year’s big launch of iOS 7. 9to5Mac points us to new data from mobile marketing firm Fiksu showing that 18 hours after its release, iOS 8 is being adopted at a far slower pace than iOS 7 was over the same time period last year.

Android L could be coming to Galaxy S5, Note 4 as early as November

In the wake of iOS 8, the operating system that will power the soon-to-be-shipped iPhone 6, coverage of Android L has slowed to a crawl. Android L debuted over the summer to an overwhelmingly positive response, but as Google has been very deliberate about actually bringing the new OS to Android phones, many Android users have simply moved on with their lives. Thankfully, they might not have to wait much longer. More →

How this hidden iOS 8 add-on is protecting your Internet anonymity

Apple is calling iOS 8 the biggest update to its mobile operating system since the addition of the App Store. That’s a bold claim, but as the adoption rate slowly climbs in anticipation of the iPhone 6 launch, users are finding plenty of new features to back it up. Widgets, extensions and Continuity have received a majority of the attention from early adopters, but Fast Company has brought our attention to another hidden add-on that could help address important privacy concerns.

It doesn’t take a genius to see Samsung didn’t even try to ruin Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus launch

It doesn’t take a genius to see Samsung didn’t even try to ruin Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus launch

Aside from a couple of distinct ad campaigns taking hits at Apple after the iPhone 6 launch – including a horrible one followed by a more successful bashing approach – Samsung didn’t really try to ruin Apple’s iPhone 6 launch, although it could have at least given it a shot. More →

iPhone 6 iOS 8 Jailbreak

So, what’s the deal with the iOS 8 jailbreak anyway?

So, what’s the deal with the iOS 8 jailbreak anyway?

For some iPhone and iPad users, jumping aboard iOS 8 is not an easy decision — not because they’re worried about whether their older iOS device can deliver a great experience with the new software, but because they’re currently enjoying an iOS 7.1.2 jailbroken device. As is always the case with fresh iOS releases, jailbreak users are advised against installing the new update (in this case iOS 8) on devices that can’t be restored to an older, jailbreak-able, iOS release. But jailbreak hackers are apparently already at work on the first iOS 8 jailbreak, iJailbreak reports. More →

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: Here is our first look

By about 5 hours ago.

Here we go… as is tradition, we always manage to get our hands on Apple’s new iPhones a wee bit early. This year brings two different models, and judging by what has been reported and written, the iPhone 6 is the evolution of the iPhone line, while the iPhone 6 Plus can almost be considering a new type of product for Apple — one that might even be able to replace the iPad mini.

Here are my initial observations, followed by a boatload of photos. More →

Everything you need to know about iOS 8’s Family Sharing feature

Now, however, AppleInsider has put together a terrific how-to guide for getting Family Sharing up and running on your iOS devices so you can share the movies, music and apps you’ve purchased with everyone in your family.

iOS 8 App Store Features

Apple just rolled out a great new way to buy iOS apps

Apple just rolled out a great new way to buy iOS apps

During this year’s WWDC, Apple made several announcements related to iOS, OS X and the App Store that targeted both regular device users and app developers. One of the new Apple Store features introduced at the event was something called app bundles that promises developers they’ll be able to bundle together multiple apps and sell these special packages to iOS users when iOS 8 arrives. The bundles will offer users cheaper access to apps: each bundle will be more expensive than the individual prices of the apps in it, but cheaper for the user than buying each included app separately. Now, these app bundles are finally live in the App Store. More →

Android users are deserting in droves ahead of iPhone 6 launch, trade-ins up 200%

With countless devices available from dozens of different vendors, Android has taken a significant lead in the international smartphone market. Last week, Apple made its biggest move yet to start converting Android users back to iOS with the unveiling of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, and based on the latest data, it looks like the company’s gamble paid off.

‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

We just spoke with multiple sources at carrier stores and authorized Apple retailer partner locations, and the straight up fact is it’s going to harder to find an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow than a Turbo Man. We are told that stores have been receiving shipments all throughout the day, and out of all the new iPhone 6 models received, typically only about 2-3% are iPhone 6 Plus units, and in only one color.

There is “no chance” of finding an iPhone 6 Plus unit to purchase tomorrow, we were told. Sources also said there are no 16GB iPhone 6 Plus devices to be found. More →

Woz explains why he’s dumping all his Android phones for the iPhone 6

It’s amazing how quickly an iPhone with a big display can win someone back. Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, who in the past has not been shy about criticizing Apple products while at the same time professing his love for rival products such as Android and the Microsoft Surface, now says that he’s getting an iPhone 6 and is dumping all of the Android phones he once praised.
