We’ve already seen a few big announcements from Google at the annual I/O keynote in Mountain View, California, but the company’s not done yet. Following the reveals of Google Assistant, Google Home, Allo and Duo, Google has finally turned to Android N, the next major software update for the mobile OS.
The wait is finally over, Google fans — Google I/O 2016 has arrived. Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai will be your host during the big keynote this afternoon and if you’re not already following along, you can catch all the action live right here in the Google I/O 2016 keynote live stream. The keynote has officially begun, and Google didn’t waste much time before getting to the big announcements. With more than 7,000 people in attendance, Pichai began the event by announcing the all new Google Assistant. More →
We all know Apple’s big annual developers’ conference typically takes place in June but it seems that Siri is now giving us the official dates. 9to5Mac notices that if you ask Siri to tell you when WWDC 2016 is, it will respond by informing you that this year’s conference will kick off in San Francisco starting on Monday, June 13th and will wrap off on Friday, June 17th. Apple hasn’t sent out any official invites for the show yet, however, so it looks like Siri’s “announcement” of the show’s official dates might be premature. More →
Just over a week after Apple wrapped up its own spring event, Microsoft is preparing to kick off its annual Build Developer Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Although we shouldn’t expect to see any exciting hardware reveals, there should be a few announcements worth tuning in for at 11:30 a.m. ET. More →
There are two big events that hardcore Apple fans look forward to most each year: WWDC and the September iPhone event. Today’s “Let us loop you in” press conference was neither. While there’s no question that Apple’s first big event of 2016 was less exciting than what we’re used to with Apple, it was still quite a show and we came away with a number of new products to check out.
In this post, we’ve rounded up all of the most important announcements from today’s Apple event so you can read about them in one place. More →
We can’t remember the last time the lead-up to an Apple event was this quiet. As a matter of fact, there might never have been a lead-up to an Apple event that was this quiet. Thanks to leaks and reports from reliable sources, we always know just about everything Apple will announce at its events long before each event actually takes place. Such is the case today as well, but there’s something different this time around: not many people seem to care about the announcements we’re expecting today.
There won’t be an Apple Car or even an iPhone 7 announced on stage by Apple today, but if you think the products Apple is unveiling today aren’t a big deal, you’ve got another thing coming. In this post, we’ll give you a quick refresher of everything you can expect to see from Apple during Monday’s big press conference. More →
As is the case each and every year at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, it feels like the show is over before it even starts. Press day at MWC is always the biggest day of the show, and it also just so happens to land on the day before the show officially begins. All of the biggest announcements are made on press day, and this year’s announcements were bigger than any we’ve seen in recent years.
Let’s go through all the top news you missed on Sunday. More →
Apple’s 2015 release of iOS 9 was a hotly anticipated update mainly because the prior year’s mobile software, iOS 8, fell short of people’s expectations in some ways. With iOS 9, however, Apple not only added a number of new features but also cleaned up the software to iron out many of the wrinkles users had been complaining about.
iOS 9 isn’t done being updated just yet. Apple released iOS 9.2.1 on Tuesday and another upcoming release, iOS 9.3, adds several of new features such as Night Shade and additional 3D Touch shortcuts. But Apple will unveil iOS 10 later this year during its annual Worldwide Developer Conference, and expectations are high to say the least.
While Apple’s new feature additions for iOS 10 remain a mystery, it looks like the date on which iOS 10 will be unveiled was likely just uncovered by some simple sleuthing. More →
It’s easy to get really annoyed at big events like CES 2016 because vendors are constantly pitching you to write about products that just aren’t very good. However, this doesn’t mean that CES is totally worthless but rather that you have to filter out the truly promising products from the products that are just a waste of your time. 10 products announced at CES 2016 really caught my eye this year and I think they have the potential to really go somewhere in the coming years. Let’s check them out. More →
Microsoft woweed its audience earlier this week with the announcement of its Surface Book, which is basically a beefed up version of the Surface Pro 4. Dubbed as the “ultimate laptop,” the new computer is an impressive 13.5-inch Windows 10 tablet and one of Microsoft’s best creations to date.
But the company apparently also misrepresented what the Surface Book can do in terms of performance, especially when suggesting the device can offer twice the performance of the MacBook Pro. More →
Apple and Google both dominated September with two huge events, unveiling a whole slate of new devices across multiple products categories. But not to be left out, Microsoft is hosting its own event today in New York City. As with the other media events this fall, we’re expecting several new hardware announcements from Microsoft today, but you won’t have to wait much longer to find out.
Read on to find out how you can watch the show live.
Apple’s iPhone 6s event on Wednesday was packed with more than two hours of announcements spanning nearly all of Apple’s major product categories. We saw new iPhones, Apple Watch updates, new iPads and a brand new Apple TV that could potentially change the way we watch television. But did Apple really need 2+ hours to go through all the products it unveiled on stage in San Francisco?
Maybe not, because one video managed to condense the entire 2+ hour event into just 3 minutes and 21 seconds. More →
Every year, Apple holds a major event in the fall to announce its new line of products. Every year, fans and members of the press get far too excited about the relatively granular updates to the iPhone and the iPad — but this year was different. Apple’s ‘Hey Siri‘ event was possibly its biggest since the original iPhone reveal, and now you can rewatch the whole thing. More →
