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’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!

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 →

The Boy Genius Report: Predictions for Apple’s October event

The Boy Genius Report: Predictions for Apple’s October event

Apple’s October event is just around the corner — actually, it’s this Thursday, the same day we’re celebrating our eight-year anniversary. In any case, Apple is holding two events this year, similar to last year. The first September event was focused on the iPhone and upcoming Apple Watch, and the second event most definitely is going to include updates to the company’s computer line.

It could be really interesting if Apple introduces not just a new Retina iMac with an insane better-than-4K resolution display, but also the rumored new Retina MacBook, which is going to be off the charts if it’s ready. More →

BGR’s Anniversary Event is next Thursday in NYC, here’s how you can RSVP

That’s right, it’s just around the corner. We have been overwhelmed with RSVPs for the Anniversary Event next Thursday, October 16th. Since RSVPing automatically enters you to win one of many, many HTC devices that will be given away that night, we wanted to make the process even easier (and our events team needs more than an hour of sleep a night). So, going forward, you can use the form here to enter in your details, and you then are automatically confirmed. Remember to get there early — it starts at 7:00 pm but we’re expecting a huge line. It’s also the first time you are going to get to experience the brand new HTC Desire EYE and HTC Re. More →

Good news, Apple fans: Apple will livestream next week’s big iPad event

New iPads? Yes. New Macs? Almost certainly. New software? Get ready for Yosemite. New iPods? Precious few people still care at this point, so we’re not sure it matters. Whatever the case may be, we can expect plenty of new products to be shown off during next week’s big event as Apple unveils the rest of its product lineup for 2014. The iPad Air will be refreshed, according to several recent leaks, and we might see an updated iPad mini as well. Beyond that, several computers in Apple’s Mac lineup are due for updates, and Yosemite should finally get a firm release date.

And for Apple fans, the best news might be the fact that you’ll be able to watch all of the action unfold live. More →

HTC’s big smartphone unveiling is about to begin – watch live right here!

HTC’s big smartphone unveiling is about to begin – watch live right here!

HTC is in the midst of a period of change as it tries to return not just to profitability, but to sustained growth. The one thing that never seems to change, however, is the quality of HTC’s products, which is always class-leading. HTC’s last big smartphone launch brought the world the beautiful all-aluminum HTC One (M8), which was easily the best Android smartphone of the year until Motorola’s new Moto X came along to spoil HTC’s fun.

Will today’s event see HTC retake the throne? More →

Come celebrate our 8-year anniversary on October 16th in NYC!

It is astonishing to think that BGR started eight years ago, and it wouldn’t have existed if not for our great readers, so we wanted to do something special this year. In addition to celebrating our anniversary, we’re also extremely excited to announce that September was our biggest month ever by a mile, and it’s all because of you. As a thank you to our awesome audience, we wanted to throw a party and invite all of you.

We are really happy to also announce an amazing event partner — HTC! In fact, this is such a special event that not only are we giving away a boatload of HTC devices, but it’s also going to be the public’s first chance to get up close and personal with some new HTC products. Plus, food and drinks are on us, so what more could you ask? More →

Photos: This is the giant facility Apple built for today’s big iPhone 6 event

After 30 years, Apple has decided to return to the Flint Center for the Performing Arts on the De Anza College campus to host what could be the company’s most important event since it unveiled the first iPad four years ago. But with a completely redesigned iPhone 6, a brand new iPhone 6 phablet, a wearable device referred to as the “iWatch,” a new mobile payments platform and more set to be unveiled on Tuesday, the facility at the Flint Center apparently wasn’t the right fit for Apple’s press conference. So what did the company do? Apple built its own facility to house the event, of course. More →
