Hugely underrated iOS 8 trick lets you share your location with friends at all times

If you use FacebookApple Maps, or Google Maps, it’s pretty easy to find where you are on a map with GPS. But what about when you want others to know where you are at any given time? Imagine if you’re in a car wreck and no one knows where you are. Or if a loved one is picking you up and they don’t know the exact address where you’re standing. It would be helpful for friends, family and the police to be able to find you with a location-sharing option for your iPhone, and luckily iOS 8 does just that. More →

What if iOS 9 came with a major interface overhaul inspired by the Apple Watch?

Apple’s iOS mobile operating system works on a variety of devices, with screen sizes starting at 3.5 inches and going all the way up to 9.7 inches. Over the years Apple had to adapt its iOS design to fit more and more display sizes and resolutions, especially with the introduction of the bigger iPhone 6 models. But now, 9to5Mac thinks it has found a solution to make sure future iOS versions will adapt to any display without causing hassles for developers or end users. More →

This awesome interactive tool will help you improve any phone’s battery life

Ask a smartphone user what aspect of his or her phone is most in need of improvement, and “battery life” will be the answer you hear more often than not. Whether it’s a brand new iPhone 6 or any recent Android smartphone, battery performance is never quite where we want it to be. The simple fact of the matter is battery technology just isn’t progressing quickly enough to keep up with all of the new technology vendors are now stuffing into their smartphones.

Of course, there are plenty of ways to help squeeze as much battery life as possible out of each charge. More →

This super-slim iPhone 6 bumper promises to protect your device from bending and so much more

We’ve seen a lot of iPhone 6 cases pop up on Kickstarter lately, but this one still looks like something special. The Rhinoshield Crash Guard is a new case that’s being pitched as a “slim profile bumper case that provides amazing drop protection for the iPhone 5/5S/5C, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Protection that does NOT compromise on the original design.” The case’s Kickstarter fundraiser has already exceeded its original goal of £6,000 and has now raised more than £100,000. It has 17 days remaining, and has already racked up an impressive 3,844 backers.

Apple Ads Compilation

Here’s how Apple’s ads have evolved since the 1970s

Here’s how Apple’s ads have evolved since the 1970s

Before actor John “And I’m a PC” Hodgman turned the PC into a laughable dope, before dancing silhouettes convinced you to buy an iPod and before George Orwell’s novel came to life in a 60-second spot during the 1984 Super Bowl, Apple made posters.

The history of Apple’s advertising campaigns is almost as interesting as the history of the products it advertises. On Sunday, The Loop’s Dave Mark stumbled upon an article from 2009 on Web Designer Depot which contains an extensive collection of Apple’s ads, from Apple II posters to commercials for the iPhone 3G.

iPhone 6 owner wishes being bent was the only thing wrong with his device

We’ve been through the entire Bendgate fiasco and figured out that if you intentionally bend a thin phone you paid a lot of money for it will probably bend. But one iPhone 6 owner is claiming that his new phone didn’t just bend — it also caught fire.

Top 10 iOS 8 Apps

The 10 best iPhone apps with iOS 8 Notification Center widgets

The 10 best iPhone apps with iOS 8 Notification Center widgets

Home screen widget support probably isn’t anywhere near the top of most iPhone and iPad users’ wish lists in terms of missing iOS features, but a vocal minority has been begging for widget functionality ever since Android was first released. As opposed to static icons that are merely shortcuts to apps, home screen widgets offer a variety of additional functionality, namely access to zero-touch information that is updated automatically without any effort needed on the user’s part.

While home screen widgets still haven’t been added to Apple’s mobile platform in iOS 8, the latest version of Apple’s iPhone and iPad OS does finally add widget support to the Today view in Apple’s Notification Center. More →
