Verizon cancels plans to throttle subscribers with unlimited data

Verizon Wireless on Wednesday announced that it is cancelling plans to throttle subscribers with grandfathered unlimited data plans. Back in July, the nation’s top carrier had said it would being slowing data speeds for the top 5% of data users in congested areas, and the new policy was set to go into effect on October 1st. According to a statement released on Wednesday afternoon — the same day throttling was set to begin — Verizon will no longer take any measures to limit data speeds. More →

This is what Windows 10 will look like on smartphones and the Xbox One

Microsoft on Tuesday gave the world a heartfelt apology for Windows 8 by unveiling Windows 10, which backs away from the “modern” interface users almost universally hated and moves toward an experience more akin to Windows 7. The new cross-device platform won’t ship until sometime next year so there’s still plenty we don’t know about it, and that includes details concerning exactly how it will work on Windows Phone devices and on Microsoft’s Xbox consoles.

While desktops, laptops and tablets were the focus of Microsoft’s presentation, the company did slip in a sneak peek of its new software running on other devices. More →

Review: A former Apple engineer showed me the future of wearables

Wearable devices comprise the next exciting frontier for consumer electronics. Or so we’ve been told. The sad truth is that wearables have been around for years already and we have yet to see anything truly exciting hit the market. Tech giants like Sony, Samsung and soon Apple are aggressively moving into wearables now that growth in the smartphone and tablet markets is slowing, but the pitch for these new devices — you won’t have to take your phone out of your pocket as often — isn’t exactly resonating with the general public quite yet.

But I have seen the future of wearable technology and it’s much more exciting than you might think. More →

How to avoid the horrible iOS 8 bug that could delete your files

Apple has had one headache after another over the past few weeks, spanning from the media circus that is “Bendgate” to a buggy iOS 8.0.1 update that bricked about 40,000 new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets. Among all of these issues lies a fairly serious bug in iOS 8 that has been causing major headaches for users — but luckily, there’s a simple way to avoid the issue altogether. More →

5 stunning iPhone 6 docks you have to check out

Talk about first world problems… each and every time Apple comes out with a redesigned iPhone, buyers need to go out and find a whole new set of accessories to go with it. Beautiful new cases and other add-ons are always difficult to come by because there are so many options out there. Simple Google searches can lead to hours of digging, and you know you won’t find the best available options by going down to your local big-box retailer.

Luckily, BGR is once again happy to do the heavy lifting for you. More →

Here’s how you can see what it’s like to wear the new Apple Watch right now

While a lucky few people in Paris enjoyed a surprising first look at Apple’s upcoming Apple Watch on Tuesday, most Apple fans won’t be able to check out the new smartwatch until sometime early next year when it finally hits store shelves. Apple showed off its upcoming new watch during the iPhone 6 press conference earlier this month, and the software looked fantastic. As for the hardware and design, it has drawn mixed responses thus far, with some Apple fans loving it while others were wishing for something round like the Moto 360.

Are you on the fence when it comes to Apple’s new watch design. Thanks to a well-known graphic designer, you won’t have to wait until 2015 to see how the Apple Watch looks on your wrist. More →

Video: How to fix a bent iPhone 6 Plus (seriously, DO NOT try this at home)

When Apple first unveiled the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this month, people knew right away that they were two of the most beautiful smartphones the world had ever seen. At the same time, however, there were a few curious design decisions that raised some eyebrows. One in particular is the protruding camera lens on both phones, which one critic even referred to as “appalling.”

YouTube users PeripateticPandas took the opportunity to release a funny (and frightening) video that shows us one way to fix the iPhone 6’s protruding camera, and now the team is back with a unique solution for “Bendgate.” More →

iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 5s: The definitive camera showdown

Apple’s industry-leading iPhones are known for several things. Stunning designs and simple but powerful software are both somewhere near the top of the list, but the iPhone line also just so happens to represent some of the most widely used cameras on the planet. While other smartphone makers have long since passed Apple’s iPhones when it comes to megapixel counts, the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus still arguably represent the most impressive smartphone cameras in the world.

But are the cameras in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus really that much better than the one in Apple’s previous-generation iPhone 5s? More →

Apple responds to allegations that it owes billions in unpaid taxes

Yin and Yang are in full force at Apple right now, where its most massively successful product launch ever has been counterbalanced by an onslaught of scandals and bad news. First, there was iPhone 6 Plus “Bendgate.” Then, Apple bricked about 40,000 new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets with a buggy iOS 8.0.1 update. Earlier this week, a few big security flaws were found in iOS 8.0.2, and now Apple is in hot water over what the European Commission (EC) claims amounts to about $8 billion in unpaid taxes.

Now, Apple has responded publicly for the first time to the EC’s allegations. More →
