Apple Maps has had its fair share of issues over the years, but one of the most disappointing aspects of the service is its lack of directions for those of us who regularly use transit systems to get around. As a resident of New York City, Apple Maps just isn’t a feasible option for me at the moment (even if it did function properly), but according to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, transit support is finally coming to Apple Maps alongside the iOS 9 update next month.
We’re finally starting to get a steady stream of leaks about Apple’s fall lineup of products, thanks once again to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman. It seems that Apple is actually working on two different 12-inch iPad models that are now codenamed “J98″ and “J99.” However, Gurman says that both devices aren’t yet far along enough to nail down a concrete release date because Apple is still working on their software and apparently hasn’t lined up sufficient hardware components to produce the device at the appropriate scale.

One of the more intriguing rumors we’ve heard this year has been that Apple is planning to release a new four-inch iPhone model this year for people who still prefer smaller devices. While there has been no consensus over whether Apple will launch a completely new 4-inch iPhone this year, a new leak suggests that we’re going to at least see an updated version of the iPhone 5c sometime soon.

Yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was a great one, and there are still a few limited-time freebies if you hurry back to that post and snag them. Today, however, we have our biggest list of the week. There are 10 apps in total on Thursday’s list, and each one would normally cost between $0.99 and $4.99 to buy.

Terrorist organization al-Qaeda isn’t willing to hire any old schlub just because they say they’re willing to kill for Allah — no, it turns out they have standards. Vox has posted the official al-Qaeda job application that was recently declassified by the U.S. government and it’s loaded with utterly ridiculous questions that make it sound like it was written by The Onion. Here are the most absurd things al-Qaeda asks its prospective hires. More →
