It sounds like the Apple Watch is swiping another idea from the Moto X

Apple on Monday will announce more details about its first smartwatch, likely addressing many of the questions left unanswered when the Apple Watch was initially unveiled during the iPhone 6 event last September. The company is expected to reveal exact pricing details for all the various Apple Watch models and accessories, alongside launch details for several markets. Furthermore, the company will likely address battery life concerns for the device, and further demo its features and customization options.

Speaking of Apple Watch personalization, French publication iPhonote says it learned from a source familiar with Apple’s plans that the company intends to offer engraving options to Watch buyers in the future, just as it does with some other products. More →

The iPad Pro’s display might be unlike anything available on the market

A plethora of 12.9-inch iPad Pro reports have hit the web in recent days, including reports that Apple has postponed the launch of the device in part because it’s working to fit the larger iPad with a full-sized USB port. That wouldn’t be the only new feature the larger iPad might offer, as Digitimes has learned more details about a different iPad component Apple plans to change — its display. More →

Don’t expect Apple to unveil the Retina MacBook Air on Monday

If the old expression “where there is smoke, there is fire” holds true, Apple is without question developing a new version of its popular MacBook Air laptop. According to countless reports from sources that range from small Apple blogs to giant news organizations, the new notebook computer will feature a reimagined design that is even slimmer than the current model, and a 12-inch display with Retina resolution.

While a rumor on Wednesday suggested that the new Air model would finally debut next week at Apple’s press conference, a new report states that almost certainly will not be the case. More →

Apple’s refreshed 13-inch MacBook Air: Rumored specs emerge for the first time

Apple is supposedly going to refresh its MacBook line soon, both by upgrading the regular 11- and 13-inch models and by releasing a brand-new redesigned 12-inch MacBook Air model that should be slimmer than any previous laptop made by the company.

New report claims the iPhone 6s will give Apple fans something they’ve wanted for a long time

New report claims the iPhone 6s will give Apple fans something they’ve wanted for a long time

AppleInsider is reporting that the next-gen iPhone 6s models will reportedly see significant performance improvements thanks to the inclusion of 2GB of RAM. Current iPhone models sport 1GB of RAM, and while that’s certainly enough to provide zippy performance, an extra gig of memory will only make the overall user experience that much better. Just as important, it gives developers the ability to really push their iOS apps to the next level. More →

Apple Watch Review

Apple Watch already being called a flop for the stupidest reasons imaginable

Apple Watch already being called a flop for the stupidest reasons imaginable

With the Apple Watch set to launch in about a month or so, I’ll be the first to admit that there’s no guarantee Apple’s foray into the wearables market will be a rousing success. Indeed, what makes the release of the Apple Watch so incredibly interesting and exciting is that we truly don’t know how popular the device is going to be.

That said, a recent opinion piece from Mark Wilson over at Fast Company posits that the Apple Watch is going to be a complete flop. Now there’s nothing wrong with having that point of view, but in constructing his piece, Wilson conveniently stretches the truth and in some instances twists and bends his “facts” to fit a preconceived narrative.

Video: iPhone 6 meets a blowtorch on steroids

Forget about old fashioned drop tests and the somewhat played out “Will it blend?” video series. These days, if you really want to put an iPhone’s durability to the test, try pitting it against a 6,000-degree Acetylene torch typically used for cutting and melting metal.
