Kids have hilarious reactions when using the original iPod

It’s somewhat incredible that Apple is still churning out new iPod models in 2015. The iPod, after all, is nearly 14 years old.

Originally released back in October of 2001, the iPod famously helped Apple reclaim its position as a tech industry leader while also padding the company’s pockets with more cash than they had ever seen before.

While those of us who witnessed the digital music revolution first-hand have a special affinity for Apple’s iconic music player, kids these days understandably look at the device with bewilderment.

Want to lose weight? This iPhone app lets you do Weight Watchers without paying $20/month

Weight Watchers has worked for millions of people looking to get shed some pounds by improving their diets, but not everyone can afford to pay the $19.95 monthly fee Weight Watchers charges. Sure, there are other ways to lose weight — I lost 50 lbs in just three months without help from Weight Watchers — but the Weight Watchers program has been proven to be effective for many, many people so it’s clearly worth trying.

Now, however, there’s an iPhone app that gives you access to everything the official Weight Watchers program has to offer, but there’s no monthly fee at all. More →

How have you lived this long without knowing these 10 hidden iPhone tricks?

Some people like to pretend they know it all when it comes to Apple’s iPhone. I promise: you don’t know it all. Even if you’ve been carrying an iPhone in your pocket since the first day the handset became available back in 2007, you still don’t know everything there is to know about all of the phone’s features, because there are just too many things baked into iOS to remember them all.

Don’t worry, that’s why we’re here… More →

iOS 9: All the best new features and additions we’ve discovered so far

iOS 9: All the best new features and additions we’ve discovered so far

By on July 22, 2015 at 12:55 PM.

Now that we’re a few weeks out from the release of iOS 8.4, it’s time to look ahead to the future of Apple’s mobile operating system. Back in June, Apple unveiled iOS 9 and announced that the update would begin rolling out to the public in the fall. Since then, we’ve seen four beta releases and the launch of a public beta.

As you might recall, Apple issued six separate beta releases for iOS 8, the last of which dropped in August — a month before the final public launch of the software. Providing Apple is working on a similar timeline in 2015, we’ve likely seen most of what the company has to offer in iOS 9 already, so we’re going to take this opportunity to round up all of the most interesting features we’ve discovered since the first beta rolled out in early June.

How to install iOS 9 beta 4 right now without a developer account

For the first time ever, Apple is giving the general public free access to beta versions of its latest iOS software. The first public beta of iOS 9 was released earlier this month, and it gives Apple fans a chance to see what’s coming to the next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus later this year.

But if you want the latest and greatest Apple has to offer, the public beta isn’t going to cut it — you still need a paid developer account to access the latest iOS 9 betas as Apple releases them. Or do you? More →
