Apple rejects app update due to microscopic mention of ‘Android’

We all know that Apple can be exceedingly nit-picky when it comes its overseeing its App Store, but the latest incidence of developer babysitting is a bit much even for them.

In the latest example of Apple’s App Store rejection policy gone awry, the company recently rejected an update to Breaking, an app which lets users curate the type of news items they’d like to appear in the “Today” feed from within iOS’ Notification Center.

An awesome hidden Apple Watch feature appears to be confirmed

You might not be aware of it, but the Apple Watch has a secret diagnostic port that’s for Apple use only. If you can’t spot it, that’s because it’s carefully hidden in the bottom side of the watch where the band slides in. And while you don’t need it for anything right now, it turns out that this special port has one very useful feature, which appears to be confirmed by a new leaked photo. More →

iPhone 7 edge Design Concept Video

iPhone 7 edge: What if Apple copied Samsung’s Galaxy S6 edge?

iPhone 7 edge: What if Apple copied Samsung’s Galaxy S6 edge?

Even if a curved display is not really a must-have smartphone feature, the Galaxy S6 edge has turned quite a few heads since being released in March, thanks largely to its unusual design that blends several iPhone 6 elements with a screen that’s beautifully curved on both sides.

But what if Apple made edge-like iPhones? Apparently that’s the question one designer tried to answer with help of a few interesting iPhone 7 renders. More →

One simple trick could free up gigabytes of space on your iPhone

Apple’s 2015 iPhone lineup has more available storage space than ever before, but many budget-conscious Apple fans still opt for 16GB when buying their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that, but having only 16GB of onboard storage can quickly become an issue on smartphones that don’t have expandable memory.

If your iPhone is filling up faster than you expected, there may be one simple trick that will free up a surprising amount of space. More →

Apple Watch Security Flaw

Potentially big Apple Watch vulnerability could let thieves use Apple Pay on stolen watches

Potentially big Apple Watch vulnerability could let thieves use Apple Pay on stolen watches

By on May 20, 2015 at 10:20 AM.

A potential security vulnerability recently detailed by a blogger may have uncovered a serious flaw in the Apple Watch’s design that could lead to some big headaches for some users. In a nutshell, a nifty feature designed by Apple to maintain security on the Watch without sacrificing convenience may have actually ended up sacrificing security instead, allowing thieves to continue using Apple Pay on a stolen Watch without having to input the owner’s PIN code to confirm purchases.

It should be noted, however, that the procedure detailed by the blogger in question did not yield consistent results. As such, a thief would seemingly need a bit of luck in order to ensure that he or she can exploit this vulnerability. More →

Video: HBO’s Silicon Valley reveals the worst insult you can give a product: ‘Apple Maps bad’

If you haven’t yet watched the brilliance that is HBO’s Silicon Valley, do yourself a favor and start tuning in. While the show is funny in its own right, it’s especially funny for anyone with even a passing interest in tech culture.

In case you missed it, last week’s episode of Silicon Valley had a little bit of fun at Apple’s expense.

The setup for the Apple-related humor is as follows: When a Nucleus backed UFC livestream goes awry, Nucleus CEO Gavin Belson demands answers.

Tim Cook finally reveals when the Apple Watch will go on sale in Apple Stores

Tim Cook finally reveals when the Apple Watch will go on sale in Apple Stores

The Apple Watch rollout was unique, to say the least. In stark contrast to typical Apple product launches which often involve long lines of eager buyers, the Apple Watch launch was much more muted.

Individuals interested in purchasing an Apple Watch could only do so by placing an order online and having it delivered to their home or workplace. Buyers interested in casually walking in and out of an Apple retail store with an Apple Watch in hand were out of luck.

But that may be changing soon enough.
