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. Apple showed off its upcoming new watch during the iPhone 6 press conference earlier this month, and the software looked fantastic. As for the hardware and design, it has drawn mixed responses thus far, with some Apple fans loving it while others were wishing for something round like the Moto 360.

Are you on the fence when it comes to Apple’s new watch design. Thanks to a well-known graphic designer, you won’t have to wait until 2015 to see how the Apple Watch looks on your wrist. More →

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 →

Publication says Apple has banned it from official events over ‘Bendgate’ coverage

Apple is understandably tired of talking about bent iPhone 6 Plus models but at the same time it seems that the company might be overreacting a tad if it’s really threatening publications over their coverage of the controversy. German computer magazine ComputerBilt.de claims that Apple has cut it off from both receiving testing devices and from being invited to future Apple launch events after it posted a video that showed how the iPhone 6 Plus could be bent with your bare hands.

Interestingly, Apple released Yosemite GM Candidate 1.0 just as Microsoft unveiled its highly anticipated 2015 Windows update, the strangely named Windows 10, which will be available to users in preview version in the coming days.

Video: How to fix a bent iPhone 6 Plus (seriously, DO NOT try this at home)

When Apple first unveiled the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this month, people knew right away that they were two of the most beautiful smartphones the world had ever seen. At the same time, however, there were a few curious design decisions that raised some eyebrows. One in particular is the protruding camera lens on both phones, which one critic even referred to as “appalling.”

YouTube users PeripateticPandas took the opportunity to release a funny (and frightening) video that shows us one way to fix the iPhone 6’s protruding camera, and now the team is back with a unique solution for “Bendgate.” More →

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

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 →
