Apple slapped with $24M fine for stealing tech from old SkyTel pagers

Apple on Tuesday was ordered to pay a $23.6 million fine to Texas-based Mobile Telecommunications Technologies after being found guilty on Monday evening of infringing six patents. A federal jury in Marshall, Texas determined that Apple’s iPhone and several other Apple devices make unlawful use of the patented technologies, which relate to pagers and date back to the 1990s.

This marks the second recent trial in which Apple was accused of stealing pager technology — the first was in California last month and Apple escaped unscathed. More →

Apple’s new Yosemite update reportedly didn’t fix the annoying Wi-Fi bug for everyone

Apple’s OS X 10.10 Yosemite update was released to the public last month, and it was a massive update. The new software featured a big user interface overhaul that helped modernize the look of OS X a bit, and it also added a number of great new features such as redesigned Spotlight search and Continuity. Unfortunately, for many users the update also introduced an extremely annoying Wi-Fi connection bug, and it looks like Apple’s just-released OS X 10.10.1 update didn’t solve the problem for everyone.

A blast from the past: The iPhone wasn’t Apple’s first effort with mobile phones

We all know the story of how Apple completely changed the mobile phone industry with the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. However, this wasn’t Apple’s first attempt at cracking the mobile phone market — a post over at Reddit’s Apple fan page reminds us that Apple and Motorola teamed up to release an “iTunes phone” back in 2005, just two years before Apple released its own game-changing smartphone.

How to remotely delete all of your Apple Pay credit cards if your iPhone is stolen

By all accounts, Apple Pay has been a huge success for Apple.

How To Free Up Space On iPhone

How to see which apps are hogging all the storage on your iPhone or iPad

How to see which apps are hogging all the storage on your iPhone or iPad

By on November 17, 2014 at 11:10 AM.

While iOS 8 is probably the most substantial update Apple’s mobile software platform has ever received, adoption has been shockingly slow compared to earlier iOS updates. It makes sense that people might not be quite as quick to update to iOS 8 as they were with iOS 7, which introduced an exciting new look for iOS. But the gap has been fairly significant, and most people seem to agree that the explanation for the slower adoption rate is fairly simple: People just don’t have enough free space on their devices to download and install iOS 8 or iOS 8.1 over the air.

Connecting to iTunes to perform the update is one possibility, but many people have never connected their iPhones and iPads to a computer and don’t want to start now. If you fall into that category, here’s the best thing you can to free up space and update your smartphone or tablet. More →
