Is this Apple’s secret weapon that could force Android users to buy an iPhone?

There are many reasons why Android users switch to iPhone, and vice-versa, but Apple may have a secret (or not-so-secret) weapon that could pressure some Android fans to considering a move to the other side. No, it’s not Apple Pay, an exclusive iPhone 6 feature that’s heavily marketed by various banks in the U.S., further helping Apple market its 2014 iPhones. It’s actually a stock iOS app that has been hiding in plain sight for years. More →

Get ready, Apple fans: Benchmarks leak for iPhone 6 running iOS 9

There are two times of the year that are the most exciting for enthusiastic Apple fans. The first comes in June, when Apple uses its annual Worldwide Developers Conference each year to debut a brand new version of its iOS platform. The second, of course, is in the late summer or early fall, when Apple releases iOS alongside at least one new iPhone model — though moving forward, we’re likely looking at two or more new iPhone models each year.

It’s still only January, but Apple is already hard at work on iOS 9, which is expected to include some major enhancements. Now, benchmark test results from an iPhone 6 running an early version of the next-generation software have been revealed for the first time. More →

This brand new free iPhone app finds you cheap flights by predicting the future

Air travel can be remarkably expensive, to the point where there are hundreds of websites dedicated to finding you the best price for a plane ticket. Most of them operate in much the same way, by scouring airlines’ websites and searching for the best prices on flights that meet your search criteria.

But now there’s a brand new iPhone app that takes a very different approach to finding you cheap flights: It predicts the future. More →

The one reason to not install iOS 8.1.3 on your iPhone 6… and how to downgrade if you did

Apple on Tuesday released iOS 8.1.3, a minor software release that brings several fixes to known problems and vulnerabilities, including one for the annoying storage problem that may prevent some users from upgrading.
