The Apple Watch doesn’t need GPS to help you keep in shape

One of the key selling points of the Apple Watch is its utility as a health-oriented tracking device. Not only will the Apple Watch keep tabs on your movements, track the number of steps you take, and measure your daily calories burned, it’s also designed to encourage you to be more active if it senses you’ve been sedentary for too long.

MacBook SSD Storage

MacBooks with gigantic 10TB SSDs might soon be a reality

MacBooks with gigantic 10TB SSDs might soon be a reality

All of the MacBook laptops Apple is currently selling come with flash storage on board, which significantly improves their overall performance. Moreover, putting an SSD into an old MacBook will offer you a nice performance boost, breathing new life into older OS X machines. However, SSD aren’t yet affordable, making so this faster storage option is still too expensive for many people.

That will soon change, PCWorld points out, as Intel and Micron have figured out how to build notebook-ready 10TB SSDs, a breakthrough that will help further drive down prices of SSDs, and potentially improve default MacBook storage options in the future. More →

Millions of Apple users can now sue Google for its Safari hack

Millions of Apple Safari users in Britain have been given the green light to sue Google amidst proven allegations that the search giant implemented a workaround to bypass Safari security and install tracking cookies on both desktop and iOS versions of Apple’s web browser.

Why? Because over 90% of Google’s ad revenue comes from advertising and they wanted to deliver higher-cost targeted advertising to OS X and iOS users.

WTF of the week: Android phone maker says Apple is Hitler

Billionaires often have a tendency to, shall we say, speak their minds freely. This apparently rings true for Chinese billionaires who are about to jump into the smartphone market, because LeTV CEO Jia Yueting just dropped a pretty big bombshell on his verified Weibo account.

We’ve seen rivals take aim at Apple in the past in an effort to generate some buzz. For example, Samsung regularly mocks iPhone users in its TV commercials. As common as it is to jab Apple, however, we have never seen a company go this far. More →

Apple has a clever iPhone plan to quietly win over China

China is slowly becoming Apple’s main iPhone market and Apple has a new initiative in place to help it sell more iPhones while simultaneously increasing market share in the highly competitive market. Instead of cutting prices on top devices or worrying about launching cheaper devices, Apple plans to enlist Foxconn’s resources to sell used iPhones in the region, Bloomberg has found out. More →

How to make sure you get the exact Apple Watch model you want next month

You can say many things about the Apple Watch, but you can’t say it doesn’t offer choice.

That being the case, users hoping to walk into their local Apple retail store on April 24th and pick out the exact model they want may want to think twice.

More reports detail Apple’s rumored iPhone 6c, which may launch this year

Apple is reportedly working on three new iPhones for 2015, including high-end iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models, but also a cheaper 4-inch iPhone 6c. The latest round of rumors was first noted in an earlier report from Digitimes. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard Apple is working on a smaller 4-inch iPhone once again, and it’s totally feasible that Apple would make a new smaller iPhone this year; a new low-cost iPhone would allow Apple to include some of its most important new technologies, such as Touch ID, Apple Pay and Health features.

iPhone 6c Rumors

Report claims Apple will shock the world with a third new iPhone model this year

Report claims Apple will shock the world with a third new iPhone model this year

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus marked Apple’s first foray into the world of larger screened iPhones, a strategy that has worked out exceedingly well for the Cupertino-based company. During the company’s 2014 holiday quarter, for example, Apple sold nearly 75 million iPhones.

With Apple now embracing the world of bigger smartphones, a road admittedly paved by Android many years back, many have wondered if Apple was going to ditch the 4-inch iPhone form factor altogether.
