Apple Earnings Q4 2014

Apple crushes estimates with record Q4 profit on $42.12B in revenue

Apple crushes estimates with record Q4 profit on $42.12B in revenue

By about 4 hours ago.

Apple shares have dipped along with the rest of the market over the past few days, though things certainly picked up during Monday’s session ahead of Apple’s fiscal fourth-quarter earnings report; shares closed at $99.76 on Monday, up 2.14%. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were on sale for just 12 days in the September quarter, but Wall Street is still expecting the launch to impact Apple’s results in a huge way. Of course, that notion obviously isn’t very far-fetched, considering Apple sold more than 10 million new iPhones just through the end of their first weekend on sale. More →

iOS 7 to iOS 8.1 Update

iOS 8.1 doesn’t seem to fix the huge issue that prevented you from updating to iOS 8

iOS 8.1 doesn’t seem to fix the huge issue that prevented you from updating to iOS 8

Apple on Monday released iOS 8.1, the first major update for iOS 8 that brought some new features to users (such as Apple Pay for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) and also fixed several other issues. However, Apple has apparently failed to fix an important iOS 8 issue it has never acknowledged since launching its newest OS version on September 17th — and it’s particularly important because it may have prevented many users from upgrading from iOS 7.

This year, Apple and Samsung will compete for the first time ever for phablet buyers’ attention. Apple launched its first 5.5-inch phablet on September 19th, while Samsung followed almost a month later with its fourth-generation big-screen Galaxy Note model. YouTube channel MacMixing (via 9to5Mac) took a closer look at both the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4 by highlighting their main features in an extended video. More →

This incredible heartwarming story shows us how amazing Siri can be

Siri, Google Now and Cortana are the three main voice-based virtual assistants available on competing mobile operating system from Apple, Google and Microsoft, respectively. While there’s fierce competition between them as each company tries to improve its own assistant solution and beat the others, there’s one way these advanced apps can help without necessarily having to be extremely accurate and fast.

For at least one autistic boy, Siri has become a best friend and a virtual companion that has all the time in the world to patiently answer all his queries, one way or another. More →

iOS 8.1 has been released – here’s how to download it right now!

As promised, Apple has just released the latest and greatest version of its smartphone and tablet operating system, iOS 8.1. It’s not quite the tremendous leap forward that iOS 8 was compared to iOS 7, of course, but it brings a bunch of great new features and fixes with it, and it probably won’t brick your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus like iOS 8.0.1 did.

Top 10 iOS 8 Apps

The 10 best iPhone apps with iOS 8 Notification Center widgets

The 10 best iPhone apps with iOS 8 Notification Center widgets

By about 10 hours ago.

Home screen widget support probably isn’t anywhere near the top of most iPhone and iPad users’ wish lists in terms of missing iOS features, but a vocal minority has been begging for widget functionality ever since Android was first released. As opposed to static icons that are merely shortcuts to apps, home screen widgets offer a variety of additional functionality, namely access to zero-touch information that is updated automatically without any effort needed on the user’s part.

While home screen widgets still haven’t been added to Apple’s mobile platform in iOS 8, the latest version of Apple’s iPhone and iPad OS does finally add widget support to the Today view in Apple’s Notification Center. More →

Apple now makes 56 different iPads – here’s how to choose the right one for you

Apple last week unveiled two new iPad models, the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 — though only the iPad Air 2 received a significant upgrade — making the new devices available for purchase almost immediately. Many older models are still officially available on Apple’s site and in stores, including the original iPad mini that sells for just $249.

As Forbes points out, from $249 to $829 there are 56 different iPad configurations to choose from, with users having to decide on various factors including size (two options), memory (four choices, but not available across the board), colors (up to three versions), wireless connectivity (two options), and whether they need a fingerprint scanner in their iPad or not.

OS X Yosemite Download

You can’t install OS X Yosemite on your Mac because you’re already running it

You can’t install OS X Yosemite on your Mac because you’re already running it

Apple on Thursday released the final build of OS X Yosemite, which became available to Mac users as a free download from the Mac App Store. However, not all Mac users were able to install it on their devices, as their Mac App Store apps would not make the update available. In case you’re one of those people still checking to see whether the update is ready, you should know there’s a simple explanation of why you can’t update: You’re already running it. Just click on that download button (as in the image above), and your Mac will tell you that you’re already running OS X 10.10. More →
