Game-changing Qualcomm tech paves the way for iPhones with wireless charging

One smartphone feature iPhone users don’t have access to yet is true wireless charging. Sure, there are cases that enable the functionality and you can add wireless charging support with a quick hack, but Apple has yet to build the feature into the phone. There’s at least one reason that hasn’t happened so far, and Qualcomm may already have a fix for it. More →

iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 3 details finally revealed in new report

iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 3 details finally revealed in new report

As iPhone sales continue to impress, iPad sales continue to plummet. During Apple’s most recent earnings report, it was disclosed that year over year, iPad sales fell by 18%. What’s more, revenue from iPad-related sales dropped by 23%.

Nonetheless, Apple remains committed to the tablet space, with Tim Cook stating as recently as April that Apple will continue to invest in the iPad product pipeline. Cook also said that he “strongly predicts” that iPad sales will pick up in the future.

So with fall right around the corner, we’ll likely be seeing an iPad refresh sometime in the next three months or so. To that end, a recent report from the Japanese-language Macotakara blog relays a few tidbits about what we can expect to see when Apple revamps its iPad lineup later this year.

Is Apple releasing 3 new iPhones this year? New report says it wanted to

There’s a lot of back and forth on the iPhone 6c rumor, and a new report seems to indicate that Apple may have indeed planned three new iPhones for a fall 2015 launch… but then decided to stick with just two of them. However, a new 4-inch iPhone with updated internal components that would launch alongside the iPhone 6s family — often dubbed as the iPhone 6c — might still be in the works. More →

10 new jailbreak tweaks that are so cool, they’re actually making me a little jealous

Last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the most powerful iPhones the world has ever seen. They positively pulverized quad- and octa-core Android rivals in a number of key performance tests, and they pushed Apple’s iPhone sales to an all-time high in the holiday quarter. iOS 8 makes great use of all that power, having brought a wide range of new features to the iOS platform that make it Apple’s most capable mobile platform to date.

As great as iOS 8 is — and as great as iOS 9 is shaping up to be — there are still plenty of great features that only iPhone owners who jailbreak their phones have access to. More →

Best Buy joins the Apple Watch party, will begin selling the device next week

Despite reports that Apple Watch sales have been lukewarm, Apple CEO Tim Cook emphatically dismissed such claims during the company’s earnings conference call last week. Not only have Apple Watch sales exceeded Apple’s internal projections, but early sales of the device have already surpassed early iPhone and iPod sales.

“And we were able to do that with having only 680 points of sale,” Cook further explained.

Well, Apple Watch availability is about to change in a major way.

Pandora Apple Music

Pandora CEO: Apple Music has had ‘no impact’ on our business

Pandora CEO: Apple Music has had ‘no impact’ on our business

Since launching a few weeks ago, Apple Music has been subject to both a lot of love and hate. While Apple’s nascent music service gets a lot of things right, the software, both in iOS and on the desktop version of iTunes, remains plagued by an abundance of frustrating bugs and inconsistent UI design choices.

That being the case, it’s perhaps a bit too premature to start wondering whether or not Apple Music has what it takes to put a dent into Spotify and Pandora’s respective bottom lines. With respect to Pandora in particular, CEO Brian McAndrews recently said during an earnings conference call that the threat posed by Apple Music, at this point, is much ado about nothing.
