Among all of these issues lies a fairly serious bug in iOS 8 that has been causing major headaches for users — but luckily, there’s a simple way to avoid the issue altogether. More →

5 stunning iPhone 6 docks you have to check out

Talk about first world problems… each and every time Apple comes out with a redesigned iPhone, buyers need to go out and find a whole new set of accessories to go with it. Beautiful new cases and other add-ons are always difficult to come by because there are so many options out there. Simple Google searches can lead to hours of digging, and you know you won’t find the best available options by going down to your local big-box retailer.

It turns out Apple’s iPhone 6 and iOS 8 encryption is really good

Apple has mentioned more than once in the past few weeks its commitment to offering iOS 8 device users, including iPhone 6 buyers, better security and privacy. In the process, Apple also explained that it doesn’t hold the keys to iOS 8 data encryption — which is protected by the user’s PIN code — and therefore it can’t offer access to that encrypted data to law enforcement agencies. It turns out that Apple’s encryption is so good that law enforcement agencies are already criticizing it, and thus indirectly advertising this particular iOS strength. More →

Watch display in Apple’s video is actually smaller than you initially thought

When unveiling the Apple Watch during the iPhone 6 event, Apple showed a longer than usual 10 minutes video, narrated by its design guru Jony Ive, in which the company talked about various Apple Watch features, from hardware to software. That presentation video was later uploaded on the company’s YouTube channel, just like most of its videos, but Apple on Tuesday pulled the clip, replacing it with an edited version. As 9to5Mac reports, the first video featured an Apple Watch with a display that’s slightly bigger than the Apple Watch’s actual display. More →

How PayPal missed huge Apple Pay deal because of the Galaxy S5

One of the most important products Apple unveiled during its iPhone 6 event is Apple Pay, the company’s official foray into mobile payments. Apple secured deals with the most important card issuers and banking institutions in the U.S. ahead of the keynote, but surprisingly left out one payments company that was rumored in the days preceding the announcement to be working together with the iPhone maker. Bank Innovation, which provided many details about Apple Pay long before its official name was revealed, has found out more details about Apple’s negotiations with PayPal, and why it kicked it out of the Apple Pay business.

Here’s how you can see what it’s like to wear the new Apple Watch right now

While a lucky few people in Paris enjoyed a surprising first look at Apple’s upcoming Apple Watch on Tuesday, most Apple fans won’t be able to check out the new smartwatch until sometime early next year when it finally hits store shelves.

Sorry, Apple haters: ‘Bendgate’ won’t kill the iPhone 6

Admit it — you were one of the thousands of people who at least momentarily believed Apple’s latest smartphone was as pliable as a stick of gum. After a few scattered reports began to circulate, it was only a matter of time before isolated incidents became signs of “design flaws.” By the time the Unbox Therapy bend-test video hit, there was no turning back. Bendgate was a epidemic. More →
