The single most important trick every iPhone 6 and 6 Plus user needs to know

By about 13 mins ago.

Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch is now behind us, and the company confirmed on Monday morning that it was indeed a record-smashing launch. Through the new iPhones’ first weekend of availability, Apple managed to sell more than 10 million combined iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets. That figure might seem like it is fairly close to last year’s combined total of 9 million iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c handsets, but that number included between 2.5 million and 3 million iPhones sold in China, where the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus aren’t yet available. As Hudson Square Research analyst Daniel Ernst noted in a post on Twitter, Apple enjoyed about 60% growth on-year through the new iPhones’ first weekend of availability when taking China into account.

So now that millions upon millions of people own all these new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets, it’s time to make sure they get the most out of their new phones. We’ve been sharing tips and tricks for quite a while now, but there’s one trick in particular that every single iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owner needs to know. More →

iPhone 6 and iOS 8 Wireless Charging Hoax

No, the iPhone 6 doesn’t charge wirelessly inside a microwave

No, the iPhone 6 doesn’t charge wirelessly inside a microwave

By about 38 mins ago.

There’s no way around it, if you have tried to microwave your new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, or any other iOS 8 device in hope to charge its battery, the word “smart” should not be used around your household to describe anything, even a phone. But “smart” might still describe the pranksters who set up an Apple-like page that details Wave, “an iOS 8 exclusive” feature that supposedly turns microwaves into energy. More →

Home Depot didn’t take data security seriously, report reveals

By about 3 hours ago.

Home Depot recently confirmed that it has been the victim of the largest credit card breach in history, with 56 million payment cards having been stolen by clever hackers, who managed to access the giant retailer’s systems for more than four months. A report from The New York Times further reveals that while the recent hack was possible thanks to advanced malware programs that went undetected by existing security measures, Home Depot apparently has a history of ignoring the security of its customers’ payment data.

If you thought that the hugely successful iPhone 6 launch would help Apple move past the controversy surrounding nude celerity photos that were stolen from hacked iCloud accounts, think again. TMZ reported on Saturday that a fresh round of stolen celebrity photos popped up on 4Chan and included pictures of Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Hope Solo and Jennifer Lawrence. This marks the second major cache of nude celebrity photos that have hit the Internet following an earlier hack that included pictures of Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Jenny McCarthy, Kate Upton, Mary E.

The iPhone 6 is looking very tempting for many Android users

By on September 20, 2014 at 9:47 AM.

Apple is very late to the party when it comes to releasing a phone with a display larger than 5 inches, but apparently not too late to generate interest among Android users. Trade-in website Gazelle tells us that “during the week that Apple announced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Samsung trade-ins increased with the announcement of new iPhones, jumping more than 3X week-over-week.” What’s more the company found that “one in three Android users” who are trading in old devices “say they’re likely to upgrade to the iPhone 6.” More →

We’re at least a few months out from the release of the Apple Watch, but just about everyone has sounded off with their opinions of Apple’s first wearable. Whether its watchmakers or the general public, there seems to have been a wide range of reactions. One of the groups that many of us were most interested to hear from was the fashion industry, if for no other reason than to know whether or not we’d look ridiculous wearing an Apple Watch. The response was divisive, but many designers were impressed with the smartwatch. More →

There’s no doubt about it, the iPhone 6 launch is the biggest handset launch of the year. Apple had sold well over 4 million iPhone 6 units during preorder availability, but that didn’t stop thousands of buyers from lining up in front of Apple retail stores in the various markets, days ahead of the actual launch. But as many reports have shown, not all of them are doing it to buy an actual iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for themselves. More →

Irony: PC users first to get full access to a major iOS 8 feature

Apple on Wednesday released iOS 8, its latest major mobile operating system update, but some of the main features in it will only become operational – or fully operational – later in October, following an important update. One of them is iCloud Drive, which Mac users who also own iOS 8 devices are advised avoid enabling until OS X Yosemite is here. But for PC owners who also happen to use iPhones and iPads, iCloud Drive is already available, Ars Technica reports. More →
