iPhone 6 Vs iPhone 6 Plus Vs iPhone 5s

iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 5s: The definitive camera showdown

iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 5s: The definitive camera showdown

By about 2 hours ago.

Apple’s industry-leading iPhones are known for several things. Stunning designs and simple but powerful software are both somewhere near the top of the list, but the iPhone line also just so happens to represent some of the most widely used cameras on the planet. While other smartphone makers have long since passed Apple’s iPhones when it comes to megapixel counts, the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus still arguably represent the most impressive smartphone cameras in the world.

But are the cameras in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus really that much better than the one in Apple’s previous-generation iPhone 5s? More →

Apple responds to allegations that it owes billions in unpaid taxes

Yin and Yang are in full force at Apple right now, where its most massively successful product launch ever has been counterbalanced by an onslaught of scandals and bad news. First, there was iPhone 6 Plus “Bendgate.” Then, Apple bricked about 40,000 new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets with a buggy iOS 8.0.1 update. Earlier this week, a few big security flaws were found in iOS 8.0.2, and now Apple is in hot water over what the European Commission (EC) claims amounts to about $8 billion in unpaid taxes.

Now, Apple has responded publicly for the first time to the EC’s allegations. More →

Apple faces a record fine in Europe over alleged illegal tax-dodging practices

Apple is not done facing tax-related inquiries, The Financial Times reports, as the European Union is investigating the company’s tax deal with Ireland. Preliminary findings apparently claim that Apple has benefited from illegal state aid after it reached certain special agreements with the Irish government that others companies based in the region — including Amazon, Facebook, PayPal and Twitter — do not enjoy.

Apple releases iOS 8.1 beta to developers, change log here

Apple has just seeded iOS 8.1 to developers. This makes one of the fastest iOS x.1 releases ever — normally the first beta is released a couple months after the new version of iOS ships. It could have to do with an much more aggressive software release schedule and the fact that Apple not only has the upcoming Apple Pay update, but most likely a software update for the company’s new iPads, and another one early next year to support Apple Watch. The change log follows below. More →

Another huge iOS 8 bug could delete your iCloud Drive files

Apple was quick to release an updated version of its latest mobile operating system after the iOS 8.0.1 rollout proved disastrous, but it appears that the company is still quite a ways from ironing out all the bugs. Last week, security research Stefan Esser noted that QuickType was offering up his unique passwords as autocorrect suggestions, and now MacRumors forum users are reporting that the ‘Reset All Settings’ feature on iOS 8 is deleting iWork documents from the newly-implemented iCloud Drive service.

How Apple’s iconic Fifth Avenue store came to be

Eight years after its grand opening, the Fifth Avenue Apple Store is one of the most iconic retail locations in all of New York City. The enormous glass cube attracts tourists and locals alike — a monument to Apple’s success in recent years. The store has become so heavily ingrained in Midtown Manhattan that it’s difficult to imagine an empty plaza in front of the GM building, but that’s exactly what it was before real estate mogul Harry Macklowe stepped in.
