How Apple plans to make sure future iOS releases aren’t disasters like iOS 8.0.1

iOS 8 Storage Issues

One of iOS 8’s biggest pain points just earned Apple a class action lawsuit

One of iOS 8’s biggest pain points just earned Apple a class action lawsuit

Storage was one of the most annoying issues with the iOS 8 update for many users, who discovered they were not able to download and install the update directly on an iOS device because they did not have enough free storage available. Apple has not fixed this particular issue in subsequent iOS 8 updates. Furthermore, even on brand new devices, depending on how much on-board storage they offer, iOS 8 might take up the bulk of a device’s memory. SiliconBeat reports that a class action suit has already been filed against the company on these storage-related matters. More →

How to fix the 8 most annoying problems with iOS 8

Apple has pushed out one major software update and several minor updates since it first released iOS 8 to the public this past September. The latest version of Apple’s mobile platform, iOS 8.1.2, is far more stable and refined than Apple’s early iOS 8 releases, one of which was so bad that it temporarily bricked tens of thousands of iPhones, leaving them completely unusable for a period of time.

But while iOS 8.1.2 is indeed far more stable, there are still some very annoying bugs and other issues buried within the software. More →

You have to check out this unique iPhone app that adds a game to your Today widgets

Apple’s massive iOS 8 update was released this past September and developers are still updating their apps to take full advantage of the thousands of new capabilities Apple added in its new mobile software. In fact, developers will continue to add new features made possible by iOS 8 for many months to come.

One of the most interesting new user-facing features added in iOS 8 is the addition of Today widget support, which is a battery-friendly compromise that adds widget functionality to iPhones and iPads but moves it off of the home screen. And now, a new app has brought what is definitely one of the most fun and creative Today widgets we’ve seen so far. More →

iOS 8 Security Flaw

Here’s why the iPhone ‘Masque Attack’ security flaw is so scary

Here’s why the iPhone ‘Masque Attack’ security flaw is so scary

Earlier this month, researchers at cybersecurity firm FireEye discovered a vulnerability in the iOS operating system which could allow hackers to replace legitimate apps with malicious copies, giving them access to any data the user entered into the hacked app. These “Masque Attacks” were enough of a threat to convince the U.S. government to release a statement warning iPhone users to avoid downloading apps from third-party sources until the issue could be resolved.

Apple was quick to issue its own response, downplaying the severity of the vulnerability, but further research by Trend Micro seems to indicate that the threat is even more serious that originally reported. More →

How to remotely delete all of your Apple Pay credit cards if your iPhone is stolen

By all accounts, Apple Pay has been a huge success for Apple. Despite some initial controversy surrounding the retailers that wouldn’t accept the payment service, Apple has continued to add partners on a relatively consistent basis following launch, giving more and more users a chance to try it out.

One of the strengths of the service is the security it provides, but what happens if your iPhone 6 gets stolen?
