Apple reveals release date and pricing for the gorgeous new iPad Air 2

Thursday’s big Apple event is still going strong, and the company just announced the release date for its brand new iPad Air 2. The device is somehow even thinner than the original iPad Air, the A8X processor is more powerful, the display technology is even better, the 8-megapixel rear camera is better, it has Touch ID, and the graphics are 180x faster than the original iPad. And somehow, despite all the new technology Apple stuff into the tablet, it still gets 10 hours of battery life per charge.

But when will we be able to buy one? More →

Apple unveils ‘the best tablet in the world': Meet the iPad Air 2

Apple’s iPad event is well underway and the company has just announced its next-generation flagship tablet, the iPad Air 2. As you might expect, the new device is the thinnest iPad Air yet released and measures in at 6.1 millimeters thin, or 18% thinner than the original iPad Air. The new tablet will also be the first device to run on the A8x, a new chipset with 3 billion transistors that will deliver an even better performance than the A8 chip found on the iPhone 6. The device also boasts 10 hours of battery life and features an M8 chip with support for a barometer and motion tracking sensors.

Apple announces release details and pricing for OS X Yosemite

New iPads are great and new Mac computers are nice, but truth be told, we’re far more excited about upgrading the Apple gear we already have with the latest and greatest software. Apple has been travelling a somewhat bumpy road lately with iOS, but the brand new version of its desktop platform OS X should be plenty stable after three different Gold Master releases in recent weeks. And now, we know exactly when we can finally get our hands on OS X Yosemite. More →

Apple’s big fall event is now underway: First up, Apple Pay launch info

Are you ready, Apple fans? It’s finally here… the last big Apple event of the year, which just so happens to take place right ahead of the holiday shopping season. What a coincidence! Apple doesn’t like to beat around the bush, and things started strong during Thursday’s press conference as CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple has signed more than 500 partners for Apple Pay’s launch, and the service will become available to Apple customers starting this Monday.

Apple’s huge iPad and Mac event is about to start – here’s how to watch live!

By on October 16, 2014 at 12:40 PM.

It’s no mystery that there is far less hype leading up to today’s Apple event than there was leading up the its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus unveiling back in September, but today’s special press conference is still one of the biggest events of the year for consumer tech. We won’t see any sleek new smartphones unveiled, of course, but Apple has plenty more up its sleeve for Apple fans in 2014, and the company is finally about to lay its card on the table.

So what’s in store for us today? New iPad tablets will definitely make an appearance, and we’ll absolutely see some new Mac computers debut along with OS X Yosemite release details. Apple might also have a few surprises in store, of course, so you won’t want to miss a moment of today’s big press event. More →

It’s official: Apple announces iOS 8.1, release coming Monday

New iPads and Macs might be the stars of the show during Apple’s big press conference on Thursday, but eager Apple fans had much more on their minds than just hardware. New Apple software was arguably even more hotly anticipated than the company’s new iPads, and while OS X Yosemite certainly features far more changes, iOS 8.1 will be Apple’s most widely used software platform in no time at all.

And now, we know what’s coming next. More →

iPhone 6 Plus Vs Galaxy Note 4

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: The ultimate camera shootout

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: The ultimate camera shootout

By on October 16, 2014 at 10:16 AM.

BGR reviewed Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Note 4 phablet on Wednesday and in the process, we spent a good amount of time comparing Samsung’s latest and greatest to the new iPhone 6 Plus. 2014 marks the first time Samsung will have to go head to head with Apple in the phablet space, and we already know that the competition is going to be fierce. Apple is selling iPhone 6 Plus units as quickly as its manufacturing partners can build them, and every device Apple sells represents another customer in the comparatively small phablet market that won’t be buying Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4.

While we compared the two devices in a number of important areas, we didn’t spend much time comparing their class-leading cameras. Luckily, a new feature published on Thursday does a great job of just that. More →

Leak: Is this our first look at the brand new iPad Air 2?

Apple’s huge iPhone 6 and iWatch unveiling last month was probably the most hyped event Apple has ever hosted. The leaks and rumors leading up to Apple’s September press conference were off the charts, the social media chatter on launch day was crazy, and it ended up being BGR’s single biggest day of traffic ever by a shockingly wide margin. Everyone wanted to see Apple’s new iPhones (despite the fact that we had already seen them dozens of times in leaks) and find out when they would finally launch.

Fast-forward Thursday, just one month later, and the lead up to Apple’s big iPad and Mac event seems eerily quiet. Does anyone care about tablets and computers anymore? More →

Bono apologizes for forcing the new U2 album on an unsuspecting public

On September 9th, 2014, Apple revealed several new exciting products and services, including the iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch, but what was supposed to be a fun surprise at the end of the event turned into a baffling debacle. The surprise was that U2’s new album, Songs of Innocence, had been automatically stored on everyone’s iTunes account free of charge. Over a month later, Bono has finally apologized for this inconvenience. More →
