How to avoid an annoying new glitch affecting the iPhone 6 Plus

There is an annoying new glitch affecting a handful of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, but this time around things are a bit different. While issues such as “Bendgate” and “Dyegate” are direct results of the design decisions Apple made during the development and production processes that yielded its next-generation iPhones, this new issue is easily avoidable and, more importantly, it’s not Apple’s fault.

Video: Apple’s heartwarming new holiday ad might move you to tears

Apple amazed audiences in 2013 with an unexpectedly heartwarming holiday ad — called Misunderstood — which ended up netting the company a Creative Arts Emmy Award earlier this year for the most outstanding commercial of the year. The company on Sunday released a new commercial in time for this year’s holidays, and this time it has limited product placement, focusing instead on relationships. More →

How an Apple cofounder made the epic investment blunder of a lifetime

Ron Wayne isn’t nearly as famous as Steve Jobs or Steve Wozniak but he’s nonetheless one of Apple’s three cofounders who helped the company get off the ground in the 1970s. For his work, Wayne was given a 10% stake in the company… which he sold soon after for just $800. More →

How to fix a cracked iPhone 6 display yourself in just 5 minutes

Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are positively gorgeous smartphones. They feature sleek designs and big, bright, beautiful displays. The new iPhone models for 2014 are also disasters waiting to happen, thanks to their slippery aluminum housings that have a tendency to slide out of users’ hands at the worst possible times.

We have attempted to help iPhone owners by recommending some fantastic iPhone cases that will protect the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in style, but some people just don’t want to listen. If you’re one of those people and you’ve recently broken your screen by dropping your phone, you might be able to save a bunch of time and money by fixing it yourself in just five minutes. More →

Apple iPhone Antitrust Investigation

The special treatment the iPhone gets from carriers might land Apple in trouble

The special treatment the iPhone gets from carriers might land Apple in trouble

Apple is the only smartphone maker in the world that deals with carriers on its own terms. The company is in firm control of the operating system running on its iPhones, which is always bloatware-free and which gets updated directly from Apple. In fact, carriers don’t even get to stick their logos on the handset. In spite of that, mobile operators simply can’t afford not to have the iPhone in stores, as T-Mobile’s John Legere has recently revealed, which means they’re ready to agree to Apple’s draconian terms.

But Reuters reports that the Canadian Competition Bureau is now looking into Apple’s deals with local carriers. More →

Over the next week or so, however, we’re going to supplement that coverage with a few additional posts that suggest some great last-minute gift ideas.

Up first, we have some awesome iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases for you to check out. They’re all great gift options, but only problem with them is that you might not want to give them away. More →

Google Maps Vs Apple Maps

Google Maps vs. Apple Maps: The most comprehensive design comparison you’ll ever see

Google Maps vs. Apple Maps: The most comprehensive design comparison you’ll ever see

By on December 12, 2014 at 12:00 PM.

When Apple ousted Google Maps from iOS back in 2012, it wouldn’t have been such a big deal… but Apple’s own mapping solution that replaced it was an absolute disaster. The countless glitches and bugs were intolerable — though they did make some nice art — and Apple’s Maps app was so bad that police had to warn users that it might kill them.

Of course, Apple’s iOS Maps app has improved dramatically since the early days. While some users still avoid it because of the bad taste left in their mouths, it is now considered by many people to be a solid option to replace Google Maps on the iPhone and other iOS devices.

There are plenty of articles that compare the features of these two leading iOS mapping apps, but a new analysis published recently provides an astonishingly in-depth design comparison that you really need to check out. More →

These jaw-dropping images were captured by a pro photographer using only an iPhone

By on December 12, 2014 at 9:30 AM.

Time and time again, we’ve seen examples of photographs captured by professionals using nothing but the cameras on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets. As often as we’ve seen them, however, they don’t get any less impressive. Pro photographers regularly sing praises when it comes to the quality of shots captured on Apple’s iPhones, and they always love all the great third-party photo editing software that lets them retouch images right on their devices.

Now, in this latest example, professional travel photographer Kevin Russ talks about how perfect his iPhone is for capturing images in remote regions. The iPhone allows him quickly edit and upload his photos while on the go, and the images he has captured along the way with his iPhone 6 are absolutely stunning. More →
