With countless devices available from dozens of different vendors, Android has taken a significant lead in the international smartphone market.

‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

We just spoke with multiple sources at carrier stores and authorized Apple retailer partner locations, and the straight up fact is it’s going to harder to find an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow than a Turbo Man. We are told that stores have been receiving shipments all throughout the day, and out of all the new iPhone 6 models received, typically only about 2-3% are iPhone 6 Plus units, and in only one color.

There is “no chance” of finding an iPhone 6 Plus unit to purchase tomorrow, we were told. Sources also said there are no 16GB iPhone 6 Plus devices to be found. More →

These are the 5 major iOS 8 features that you can’t even use yet

Apple already released iOS 8 to the masses, with the new mobile operating system having been made available to users who have at least 2011 iOS hardware (iPhone 4S or iPad 2) and later models.

The pros and cons of wearing an Apple Watch

The pros and cons of wearing an Apple Watch

Although smartwatches from major vendors are rapidly becoming the norm, it’s clear that wearable technology is still in its infancy — but the Apple Watch is expected to jumpstart the industry when it launches early next year. In fact, Samsung, LG and other competitors are banking on Apple’s success, as it could be the push their products need to attract widespread attention.

Analysts are expecting the market to explode in the coming months, but it’s worth pumping the brakes and examining the potential effects of these devices before they’re strapped on all of our wrists. More →

Beloved Apple blogger shares iPhone 6’s ‘most disappointing aspect’

Beloved Apple blogger shares iPhone 6’s ‘most disappointing aspect’

Among the thousands of bloggers around the world covering the Apple beat, John Gruber is likely the most beloved and respected by Apple fans. His analyses are often sharp and insightful, and we always enjoy his frank style — even when he’s launching attacks aimed at us. So, when Gruber takes to his blog Daring Fireball and reviews Apple’s brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, it’s safe to assume that his is one of the few reviews out there that is actually worth reading. And an equally safe assumption is that we should take note when he shares his thoughts on “the single-most disappointing aspect of the new phones.” More →

iOS 8 vs iOS 7: This is how your favorite mobile platform changed overnight

Apple’s recently released iOS 8 is very similar to iOS 7, at least when looking at it from a distance.

In fact, even though iOS 8 appears to be identical to iOS 7, there are many UI tweaks that make it even more user-friendly than its predecessor, one site put together a detailed guide, complete with images showing some of the critical differences between the two iOS versions that’ll completely change the way you interact with your iOS devices.

Apple Watch Price

No one understands the Apple Watch strategy, and it’s totally a winner

By on September 18, 2014 at 11:15 AM.

Not much is known about Apple’s upcoming Apple Watch pricing besides the fact that, what assume is the Sport edition, will start at $349. Whether this even includes bands, we do not know. It is likely there are going to be different storage capacities for the less expensive models, so it’s not inconceivable to think that $349 is going to get you the Sport Watch with something like 16GB of storage, and then another $100 for 32GB and another $100 for 64GB.

How to get iOS 8’s best new features on Android even before iPhone users get them

How to get iOS 8’s best new features on Android even before iPhone users get them

When CEO Tim Cook and his fellow Apple executives unveils iOS 8’s great new features on stage during their WWDC 2014 keynote presentation back in June, the most dramatic audience response might have come when the crew unveiled iOS 8’s new Continuity features. With this great new functionality, iOS devices and Mac computers will be more closely connected than ever, able to quickly and easily exchange files and other data. Better still, iOS device notifications appear on a user’s connected Mac, and messages can even be sent and received right from within OS X.

But there’s a catch: despite the fact that Apple released iOS 8 to the public on Wednesday, none of this awesome new functionality is available to iPhone and iPad users yet. If you have an Android smartphone or tablet, however, all of these great features and more are already available thanks to a single fantastic app. More →
