Great news: The next-gen iPad Air might not have miserably wimpy RAM

Specs certainly aren’t everything, but Apple fans should still be relieved to know that the next-generation iPad Air will feature a memory boost up from the 1GB of RAM the first-generation model had. Per MacRumors, Taiwanese publication TechNews is reporting that Apple’s followup to the iPad Air will feature a full 2GB of RAM, which just happens to be the same amount of memory that came with Google’s last Nexus 7 tablet when it was announced more than a year ago.

Hidden iOS 8 code may reveal a key iPhone 6 specification

Hidden iOS 8 code may reveal a key iPhone 6 specification

Apple is just weeks away from unveiling two new iPhones, but as with any Apple reveal, there are still plenty of details being kept under wraps. The most oft-repeated rumor, supported by enough evidence to put it in the fact column, is that one iPhone 6 model will have a 4.7-inch display and the phablet version will feature a 5.5-inch display. With larger displays, it would make sense for Apple to bump up the resolution as well, but previous reports regarding an upgraded resolution have been shaky at best. More →

Apple Share Price All Time High

‘Doomed’ Apple sees its stock close at an all-time high

‘Doomed’ Apple sees its stock close at an all-time high

Hey wait, wasn’t Apple supposed to have “disappeared” by now if it didn’t release the iWatch? Apparently the company didn’t the memo because as Bloomberg notes, its stock just closed trading at $100.56 on Tuesday, which is more than its previous split-adjusted all-time high of $100.30 that it hit back in 2012. All told, Apple now has a market cap approaching $600 billion, which still leaves it far ahead of top rivals Google ($397 billion market cap at the end of Tuesday’s trading) and Microsoft ($372.5 billion market cap at the end of Tuesday’s trading). If the iPhone 6 is as big a hit as many analysts predict, Apple’s stock price and market cap might have even more room to grow.

New report claims Apple might delay the iWatch until 2015

As one Macworld writer discovered, the phone can survive such annoying accidents, and there’s always hope it’ll turn back on and function properly just like before being submerged underwater. More →
