Apple last week released iOS 9, a mobile OS upgrade that focuses on performance improvements and stability, though Apple included plenty of interesting new features in its latest OS as well. However, just like with previous iOS releases, there are some issues certain iPhone and iPad users might be dealing with, and the “Slide to Upgrade” bug is easily one of the most frustrating. More →
Will we ever be able to rid ourselves of the iPhone’s Stocks app that we never use? Sure, we can dump it into a folder with other little-used Apple apps but that folder is still taking up precious home screen space that could be filled with apps that we actually want there. Over at Techpinions, Jan Dawson has a smart piece on how Apple could change the way it handles apps to help you free up more space on the home screen and make your device more useful. More →

Apple fans have been criticizing Android for years, fighting back against “walled garden” claims by suggesting that Android’s open nature makes it far more susceptible to hacks and malware. This is indeed often the case, but if you think Apple’s closed iOS app ecosystem isn’t also vulnerable to attacks, think again. Millions upon millions of iPhone and iPad users were affected by a major App Store hack that was just uncovered, and now we have a list of some of the apps that have reportedly been infected with malware.
Here’s the bad news: There are some very popular apps on this list, and the odds are pretty good that one or more of them are on your phone right now. More →
Apple’s iPhone upgrade cycle over the years has settled into a nice and predictable pattern. Every time Apple introduces an iPhone with a new form factor, it’s followed up by an ‘S’ upgrade that introduces new software and/or hardware features while retaining the same look and feel as its predecessor.
To wit, the iPhone 4s introduced us to Siri, the iPhone 5s brought us Touch ID, and the soon to be released iPhone 6s will bring us 3D Touch. ‘S’ upgrades are the real deal, and a strong case can be made that the iPhone 6s represents the most compelling and feature-packed ‘S’ upgrade to date.

Buying iPhone accessories can be tricky. A lot of times you have to make the choice between high-quality Apple accessories that are painfully expensive, or third-party accessories that are cheaper, but can also be poorly made. When it comes to car chargers, Apple makes the decision simple by not even making its own options. Instead, you have no choice but to buy a third-party charger — but you absolutely must make sure that it’s Apple certified.
For a limited time, Amazon is selling its AmazonBasics Apple Certified Lightning Car Charger for iPhone, iPad and iPod for just $11.99 shipped. More →
If you own an iPhone, you’re probably either considering updating, in the process of downloading the update or have just finished updating to iOS 9. No matter which category you fall into, you might want to take this opportunity to clean up your phone and make it feel new again (especially if you aren’t upgrading to the iPhone 6s later this year).
When Apple introduced the iPad Pro last week, it called up two of its oldest rivals to help sell the device: Adobe and Microsoft. For many, this was quite a sight to behold. For years, Apple and Adobe engaged in a bitter war of words over the former’s reluctance to support flash on iOS devices. As for Apple and Microsoft? Well, their decades-old rivalry certainly needs no introduction.
So when both companies took the stage at Apple’s special event last week to sing the praises of Apple’s upcoming new tablet, it was a funny reminder of how quickly the technological landscape can change.
Further illustrating this point, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella yesterday used an iPhone to demo Microsoft’s Outlook app while speaking at Saleforce.com’s Dreamforce Expo.
After the typical multi-month beta period that began this past summer at WWDC 2015, Apple released iOS 9 to the general public on Wednesday. Millions upon millions of people around the world have already updated, but there are probably some stragglers who are holding out because they still have a bad taste in their mouths from the early days of iOS 8.
There’s nothing wrong with waiting if that’s what you want, but let’s take a look at what you’re missing. More →
