A guide to setting up Apple Pay on your iPhone or iPad

The rollout of the latest updates for Apple’s mobile operating system hasn’t been quite as smooth as expected, but with iOS 8.1, it looks like Apple is back on track. The biggest addition to iOS in 8.1 is Apple Pay, the company’s attempt to replace all of your credit cards, debit cards and gift cards with an easy-to-use mobile service. More →

iOS 7 to iOS 8.1 Update

iOS 8.1 doesn’t seem to fix the huge issue that prevented you from updating to iOS 8

iOS 8.1 doesn’t seem to fix the huge issue that prevented you from updating to iOS 8

Apple on Monday released iOS 8.1, the first major update for iOS 8 that brought some new features to users (such as Apple Pay for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) and also fixed several other issues. However, Apple has apparently failed to fix an important iOS 8 issue it has never acknowledged since launching its newest OS version on September 17th — and it’s particularly important because it may have prevented many users from upgrading from iOS 7.

iOS 8.1 has been released – here’s how to download it right now!

As promised, Apple has just released the latest and greatest version of its smartphone and tablet operating system, iOS 8.1. It’s not quite the tremendous leap forward that iOS 8 was compared to iOS 7, of course, but it brings a bunch of great new features and fixes with it, and it probably won’t brick your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus like iOS 8.0.1 did.

Video: Let’s hope iOS 8.1 fixes this incredibly annoying iPhone 6 Plus bug

iOS 8.1 is coming out later on Monday and for some iPhone 6 Plus owners’ sake, we hope it will fix one very annoying bug in particular. As you can see in the YouTube video posted below, some iPhone 6 Plus models are very slow to react when turned upside down at times and will often leave their home screen icons upside down even when you turn the phone right side up.

Everything new that Apple added in iOS 8.1

Everything new that Apple added in iOS 8.1

Apple made plenty of big announcements during its press conference Thursday — along with one ridiculously small announcement — and details surrounding its first big revision of iOS 8 were among them. While it may look just like Apple’s previous mobile software version, iOS 8.1 is a huge deal, mainly because it will finally bring Apple Pay to iPhones and iPads. Apple announced that it is already working with more than 500 partners on its mobile payment solution, and down the road it could clearly be a huge boost for Apple’s bottom line and an added convenience for Apple’s customers.

But Apple Pay isn’t the only new addition in iOS 8.1. More →

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 →

Apple Pay’s secret setup screen found hidden in latest iOS 8.1 beta

There are plenty of great announced iOS 8 features that Apple didn’t actually release with the first iteration of the platform, but we’re pretty sure that you’re going to be getting a lot more of them with the release of iOS 8.1 later this year. MacRumors points out that iOS developer Hamza Sood has found one such feature hiding in plain sight in the latest iOS 8.1 beta: The setup screen of the Apple Pay mobile payments platform. More →

Here are the complete release notes and change log for iOS 8.1 beta 2

Apple released iOS 8.1 beta 2 to developers on Tuesday and the company described the release as simply containing “bug fixes and improvements.” Taking a look through the official change log, however, we can see a couple of interesting specific additions in the new release, including changes to the Address Book people picker UI, workarounds for reported problems third-party keyboard app developers have had testing out their software on some iOS applications, and instructions for enabling Wi-Fi calling on the iPhone 6 over T-Mobile’s network. We’ve posted the full change log and release notes for iOS 8.1 beta 2 below. More →

iOS 8.1 Features: Date Trick

Apple is patching the one iOS flaw you’ll actually want to keep

Apple is patching the one iOS flaw you’ll actually want to keep

A bug in iOS 7 discovered in early 2014 allowed users to play classic Nintendo and Game Boy Advance games after installing an emulator from the web on their devices without having to jailbreak them first. That’s not something iOS devices should be able to do in the first place, as the only way to install apps on iOS devices is from Apple’s App Store. Called the “Date Trick” bug, this unofficial “feature” is still available to iOS 8 users, but that will soon change, Pocket Gamer has found out. More →
