Apple may have revolutionized the mobile computing world with the launch of the first iPhone but it couldn’t have done it all by itself — in fact, as one incredible graphic shows, the iPhone was the culmination of thousands of years of human innovation that started with the first tally sticks and abacuses.

Apple used its iOS anti-malware security many times to bash Android’s malware problem — which is an issue that affects plenty of Android users — but it looks like the company might have a serious iOS and OS X security issue on its hands, The New York Times reports. While malware attacks have been possible against jailbroken iOS devices for some time, a new piece of malware has been discovered that can infect even iPhones that have not been jailbroken. More →

Here’s the answer to a mystery you may not have even known existed: Why iPhones and iPads in Apple ads are always set to 9:41 a.m. The Atlantic has done some digging and has found that Apple used to have its iPhones show the time 9:42 a.m. in ads because that was the exact time Steve Jobs first unveiled the device all the way back in January 2007. This lasted until 2010 when Jobs unveiled Apple’s next major new product, the iPad, exactly one minute earlier in the day at 9:41. And ever since then, it seems that 9:41 has been the standard time for all Apple products in ads, both new iPads and new iPhones alike. More →

Few products have had as much of a cultural impact as Apple’s smartphone, but the iPhone is just one branch of Apple’s prolific history. Pop Chart Lab recently released the third edition of its “Insanely Great History of Apple” poster, featuring over 500 Apple releases, from the Dot Matrix Printer to the iPad Air 2. More →

When in doubt, attack the iPhone. This is a strategy that has been employed countless times over the past seven years, ever since Apple’s iPhone first came along and turned the smartphone industry on its head in 2007. One company actually managed to turn iPhone-bashing into a successful business, but it costs Samsung double-digit billions in marketing money each year to make its anti-Apple campaign work. Of course, most companies don’t have that kind of money to spend on marketing and advertising, so they haven’t fared quite as well.
Last week, we showed you a few images of what Apple’s new Apple Watch interface might look like on an iPhone. Usability would certainly take a hit in some important areas, but Apple’s zooming UI does a good job of using available display real estate to its fullest extent. And of course, the zooming effect is also pretty cool.
Well, it didn’t take long for developers to get cracking on making the zooming Apple Watch interface a reality for iPhone users, and it’s already available as a free download — with two big caveats. More →
