Your new Apple Watch color and band options, in...

New gold and rose gold versions of the Apple Watch Sport were probably the biggest addition to the lineup—now the entry-level Sport comes in all the same colors as the iPhones they'll pair with.

The Apple Watch didn't get a "real" hardware update yesterday, but Apple is really leaning into the customization and personalization aspect of the accessory as it heads into the holiday season. To that end, it announced two brand-new finishes and a wide variety of new watch bands at its event yesterday, and...

Why 'S year' iPhones are a bigger deal...

Few things are more predictable than the iPhone upgrade schedule. Even before senior vice president of world wide marketing Phil Schiller and Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi broke down everything new about the iPhone 6s toward the end of Wednesday’s “Hey Siri” event, we already knew what was coming (and it wasn’t because of 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman and his connected sources, either): Same design, new features.

Raspberry Pi Gets a Touchscreen to Call Its Own

The Raspberry Pi Foundation on Tuesday announced the availability of a touchscreen that brings the low-cost tiny computer one step closer to becoming a standalone mobile device. The touchscreen was in development for nearly two years. The first round of screens will require some assembly of parts that arrive in a small kit, noted Gordon Hollingworth, director of software at Raspberry Pi. For those who can tolerate the wait, shipments of assembled screens will come later.

iOS 9.1 gets around to making some truly useful...

iOS 9 is bringing improvements to Siri and multitasking to Apple's platform, but we're going to have to wait until iOS 9.1 to get a truly groundbreaking new feature: new emoji. Apple sent out the first iOS 9.1 beta today, and it includes a bumper crop of new emoji characters.

The folks at Emojipedia have a more complete list of the new characters, which include such luminaries as "nerd," "tornado," "unicorn," "levitating," and "reversed hand with middle finger extended." Most of the characters were introduced in Unicode 7 or 8, though some of the new characters apparently date all the way back to Unicode 1.1.

Apple Levels up with tvOS

The refreshed Apple TV, tvOS and the Siri Remote Apple presented during Wednesday's "Hey Siri" event may not have been game changers, but the people pushing Apple's renewed focus on gaming are. Television's future lies in apps, proclaimed Apple CEO Tim Cook as he drew the curtain on the Apple TV's new iOS 9-powered operating system: tvOS. That line drew a chuckle from owners of Fire TVs and Rokus, but there's no denying the potential one of the world's most influential companies has when it puts its weight into a new product or strategy.

Everything you need to know about iPad mini 4, a...

Apple devoted the lion’s share of its Sept. 9 event to showing off the iPad Pro, so you’ll be forgiven if you missed the minute devoted to a new version of the iPad mini. But don’t sleep on the 4th-gen 7.9-inch tablet—it’s a much more significant upgrade than the iPad mini 3, which Apple just quietly phased out.

The iPad mini 3 was released alongside the iPad Air 2 last fall, and while the second-gen Air was a worthwhile buy, the mini 3’s only changes were Touch ID and a new gold option. Apple is clearly betting big on the iPad Pro, but if you’re in the market for a smaller tablet...

While Apple had plenty of iPhones and iPad Pros for us to play with yesterday, it was being more reserved with the Apple TV demos—most of its booths were just mini-demonstrations of things that had been shown off onstage. We were able to spend a little bit of time with its new remote, but if you watched the onstage demo you already know most of what there is to know.

The box itself is small and nondescript, and aside from the missing optical audio port (and the addition of USB Type-C as a service port, making it Apple's second official USB Type-C device)...

The $50 Snap 6 is an iPhone 6 case that offers the phone’s camera something you might be missing: An actual shutter button. The device adds a bit more bulk to your already-bulky phone, but the tradeoff will be worth it to some iOS shutterbugs. It’s unclear whether or not this case will work with the upcoming iPhone 6s.

Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program vs. the big four...

Apple is now selling iPhones on installment plans, giving customers the ability to pay a monthly charge for a phone and upgrade to a new one every year. The four major carriers in the US already offer phones on installment plans, but Apple's new "iPhone Upgrade Program" provides yet another option that might be better for certain customers.

Here are the basics: Instead of paying hundreds of dollars up front for a new iPhone 6S or 6S Plus, a customer gives Apple anywhere from $32.45 to $47.45 per month, depending on the model and storage amount. Such customers are eligible to upgrade to a new phone after making 12 months of payments.

So if you buy an iPhone 6S with 16GB of storage, the cheapest model, you'd pay $389.40 to essentially rent the...

Here’s how much 4K video you can shoot on an iPhone...

With yesterday’s announcement that the iPhone 6s will shoot 4K video, many prospective buyers may be wondering just how much space they’ll need to contain all the videos they’ll shoot.

That question has been answered thanks to Marques Brownlee’s hands-on video of the device. In that video, Brownlee briefly provides a look at the phone’s camera settings, including the space requirements for 4K video…

4K video is significantly larger than 1080p and as a result requires a lot more storage space. While a single minute 1080p footage at the standard 30 frames per second requires only 130 MB, a 4K video at the same framerate will require a whopping 375 MB.

That means if you’re eyeing the 16 GB iPhone, you’re probably...

AppleCare+ more expensive for iPhone 6s/6s Plus


Buying AppleCare+ for a new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus is going to be a more expensive proposition, as the company has increased the price tag on the two-year warranty plan to $129. That’s $30 more than the cost of AppleCare+ for older iPhone models.

Apple has also bumped up the service fees for up to two incidents of accidental damage. That fee is currently $79 for each incident with older iPhone models, but will be $99 for the newest phones out of Cupertino.

Adobe slip-up suggests iPad Pro comes with 4GB of RAM

With few exceptions, Apple doesn't talk about the amount of RAM included in its iPhones and iPads. Even though it has an obvious impact on developers and the user experience, that information is almost always discovered after the fact by users and reviewers.

Adobe may have just leaked the amount of memory included in the new iPad Pro, though. In a post about the apps the company showed off onstage yesterday, Adobe claimed that "iPad Pro is great for creative workflows with a high res 12.9-inch touch screen display at 2732 x 2048 pixels, A9X chip, and 4GB RAM." The reference to both the A9X chip and the 4GB of RAM have since been deleted, but the reference has been...

What the heck is Angela Ahrendts doing at Apple?


There are lots of things people wonder about Ahrendts. Why did she, the celebrated architect of Burberry’s turnaround, give up her post as CEO and uproot her family to become, at best, the third or fourth most powerful executive at the $183-billion-in-sales tech giant?

Here’s another: What does Apple think Ahrendts—whom it paid an astounding $73.4 million in stock and cash in her first year—brings to a company that has redefined the technology and retail sectors, one that, at this point, seems not to need a whole lot of anything? And a third: What has she accomplished so far?

A lot of people don’t understand Ahrendts role at Apple, assuming she’d be as high profile at Apple as she was at Burberry. It’s the curse of short term thinking and not realizing that both Ahrendts and Cook are, as usual, playing the Long Game.

80 Days' twisting, globetrotting adventure will...

Last year’s 80 Days was easily one of the most enthralling games released on iPhone and iPad, making our list of the top titles of 2014. However, the small indie team at Inkle had a grander vision than what we played on touch devices. Development ran months longer than expected, which can have dire consequences for a tiny studio moving nimbly between projects, so some of the more expansive content was curtailed and Inkle let 80 Days loose into the world. 

Luckily, even a condensed version of the game—an interactive adaptation of Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days—was plenty excellent, and it seems to have done well for the studio. So when it came time to consider bringing the game to additional platforms, Inkle decided to “turn a problem into an opportunity,” says creative director Jon Ingold, and...

The iPhone 6s has a smaller battery than the 6, but Apple is promising your new phone will still last just as long on one charge as last year’s model.

The 6s has a 1715 mAh lithium-ion battery, smaller than the 1810 mAh battery in the iPhone 6. Some intrepid Apple watchers noticed the change in the 3D Touch promotional video aired during Wednesday’s “Hey Siri” event, MacRumors first reported. The video showed off the new 4.7-inch model’s internals to demonstrate the Taptic Engine, which is brand new to iPhone and provides physical feedback to 3D Touch gestures.

iPad Pro with Smart Keyboard vs. MacBook: A...

Today as Dave Caolo and I were doing our Blab broadcast of the Apple event, I was using my 27-inch iMac as the streaming machine and a conduit to social media. For the actual livestream of the event, I was using the beautiful Retina screen on a 12-inch MacBook. My iPad Air 2 was sitting downstairs, sucking down energy. After the event I began to do a thought experiment about whether an iPad Pro with the Smart Keyboard could hypothetically kick the petite rear end of the 12-inch MacBook or any other MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. Here are my thoughts, which I'd love for you to tear apart.


There are a lot of people for whom the display on the 12-inch Retina MacBook is just too small; that's why Apple makes a 13-inch MacBook Air and 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros. Now the 12-inch Retina MacBook does have a beautiful display at 2304 x 1440 resolution. The 13-inch MacBook Air has a 13.3-inch diagonal display, but it's not Retina quality - maximum...

Apple boosts AppleCare+ price for iPhone 6s, 6s Plus...

AppleCare+ just got a bit more expensive if you’re looking to cover an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus handset.

On Wednesday, Apple released the more expensive rates as well as a preparation guide and preorder tool for those looking to pick up one of the new models this weekend.

The new pricing has two years of AppleCare+ for the handsets at US$129.99 for two years of coverage. The program provides coverage for two accidental damage claims with a per-incident service fee of US$99.99.

AppleCare+ pricing has slowly gone up as the iPhone’s hardware and components became more sophisticated over the years. In 2013, for example, Apple upped...

Well, this is both confusing but also reassuring.

One thing Apple didn’t mention during yesterday’s keynote was the iPhone 6s battery life. In the promo video, Apple shows a shot of the iPhone 6s internals. During the video, the viewer can make out the battery’s specifications, which is rated at 1715mAh,down from the 1810mAH packed into the previous iPhone 6.

The smaller capacity battery apparently allows for new features such as the 3D Touch screen and the Taptic Engine, albeit Apple’s specs state that the battery life estimates for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s models are identical.

Apple files for patent for a 'small form factor...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20150116560) for a "small form factor telephoto camera," which hints at even better camera functions in future iPhones and iPads.

The popularity of mobile devices has resulted in a need for high-resolution, small form factor cameras for integration in the devices. However, Apple says that, due to limitations of conventional camera technology, conventional small cameras used in such devices tend to capture images at lower resolutions and/or with lower image quality than can be achieved with larger, higher quality cameras. 

Achieving higher resolution with small package size cameras generally requires use of a photosensor with small pixel size and a good, compact imaging lens system. Advances in technology have achieved reduction of the pixel size in photosensors. However, as photosensors become more compact and powerful, demand for compact imaging lens system with improved imaging quality performance has increased. Apple thinks it...

Yesterday’s “Hey Siri” event went impossibly well. Apple revealed one phenomenal new shiny after another. Since the original iPhone release back in 2007, I don’t remember an event with as much heft, as much magic, and with such terrific stage presence. To me, this was Apple in absolute top form.

Though there were a number of moments that vied for second place, by far, my favorite part of the event was the announcement of the new Apple TV. Read on for my thoughts on what is now tops on my Christmas list.

Apple gets an 'A' in the Computer...

RESCUECOM has released its 2015 Q2 Computer Reliability Report. As usual, Samsung and Apple top the list. 

Apple gets a grade of "A," while Samsung gets an "A+." On the previous Computer Reliability Report, Apple received an "A-." In 2014, the company topped the list with a score of “A+.” If you remove tablets from the rankings, Apple leads all personal computer makers.

RESCUECOM says Dell has seen improvement this year — from being one of the worst performers in prior years, while HP's reliability score continues to drop.  Amazon is missing due to a drop in popularity of its tablets, while Microsoft ranks in the median due to its production of the Surface tablet.  

While IBM/Lenovo had been gaining ground on Apple and Samsung, its score did not increase as much as either of theirs, keeping it in third place. The middle rankings...

Sorry, naysayers, but the new iPhones are truly...

There are some complaints that the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus aren't innovative. Not true. Just because they look pretty much the same as the iPhone 6 and 6s doesn't mean there aren't plenty of impressive under-the-hood improvements. 

With the iPhone 6s, Apple has introduced even more innovations than it added with last years' iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The company has changed almost everything about the iPhone, but still made almost identical to the old model (though adding a new rose gold color option) and, shockingly (well, in the Apple world) making it slightly bigger.

According to IHS, the most important new feature on the 6s is 3D Touch because "it will increase the uniqueness of iPhone apps."The new name for force touch will enable new user interface options in Apple's built-in apps and enable better control of mobile games, according to the...

In a move that will certainly intensify the (debatable) theory that iOS devices will eventually replace Macs altogether, Apple's new iPad Pro shows the company is head to head with the full, notebook personal computer market with its latest offering, the iPad Pro.

While many of the product enhancements reflect input from enterprise customers, IHS ( expects consumers will play a large role in demand for the iPad Pro. "By incorporating a Retina display, Apple provides clear product differentiation between the new iPad Pro and the current MacBook Air models," says the research group. "On front of screen performance, the iPad Pro will easily outperform the MacBook Airs, an important, in your face distinction for users as they grapple with the product choice. With a growing number of users turning to tablets and notebooks as their primary video viewing screen, display performance is key."

New Apple TV sounds great, but 4K support would have...

The new Apple TV announced yesterday has lots of intriguing improvements, but it lacks 4K or Ultra HD support. I think that's a mistake. 

I asked Apple why there was no such support. I haven't heard back yet. If/when I do, AppleWorld.Today will provide the answer.

Ultra HD is on track to become an established feature of TVs by 2020, according to Strategy Analytics’ latest predictions. Falling prices, increased retailer support and strong customer satisfaction are the main reasons for Ultra HD TV’s success. 

Strategy Analytics now predicts that global sales of Ultra HD TVs this year may exceed 30 million units, and by 2020 61% of annual TV sales will be Ultra HD. The analyst firm also predicts that more than 20% of households in leading markets will be using Ultra HD services from pay TV or online video providers by 2020.

Why Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program Is a Bad...

Those waiting for an iPhone fix were given quite a lot of get excited about, but like your friendly local drug dealer, Apple has a 'sweetener' to help ensure its customers just keep on coming back for more: the iPhone Upgrade Program which lets you upgrade to a new iPhone every year as long as you keep paying each month. On the face of it, it might seem like a good deal — particularly as the price includes Apple Care — but is that really the case? What Apple's actually doing is feeding the habit of iPhone junkies, keeping their addiction going a little bit longer, and a little bit longer, and a little bit longer. In reality, Apple would like you to perma-rent your iPhone and keep paying through the nose for it. Ideally forever.

Brief Thoughts and Observations Regarding Today’s ‘...

All for One, One for All

This was it: one big event for all of Apple’s late 2015 product announcements. In the previous three years, Apple held separate events in September (iPhone) and October (iPad/Mac). They’ve done this because they typically have more to announce than would fit comfortably in one event. As I wrote yesterday, I thought they’d have two events again this year, because it looked like they once again had more stuff ready to announce than would fit, comfortably, in one event.

To do just one event, something had to give. One casualty was the Mac. Other than a few offhand references to things that work with features in Mac OS X, the Mac got no stagetime whatsover. El Capitan’s only public demo will have been at WWDC back in June. Whatever new Macs get released this year (retina 21-inch iMac, updated MacBook...

iCloud monthly rates now lower: $10/month for 1TB

One of the things I was most happy to hear during today's Apple event was also something that was just glossed over very quickly -- new, lower pricing for iCloud. 

It's always irritated the #($)#@(( out of me that iCloud was so expensive, when I was paying just a mere pittance for 1TB over at Dropbox ($9.99/month). As a result, I put a lot of files over on Dropbox -- but nowhere near that 1TB total -- and not so much into iCloud, where a mere 200GB was costing me $3.99/month. 

The new iCloud plans are actually quite nice. To begin with, if you use up to 5GB of cloud storage, it's still free. But here's where things get better:

  • 50GB is $0.99/month. Formerly, you got 20GB for a buck a month.
  • 200GB is $2.99/month. That used to be $3.99/month.
  • 1TB is $9.99/month. Previously, Apple charged a ridiculous $19.99 per month.

As of this evening, the old pricing is still in effect. If I were to venture a guess, I'd say that Apple will...

Can your iPhone 6 case fit the new iPhone 6s?

Now that we know the details on Apple’s new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the most important question in the world can be posed: Will your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus case fit on the new models?

Some companies, like Speck, have said that their iPhone 6 cases will fit the new iPhones. Check the website of your case manufacturer and see if they’ve made a statement about their cases.

You really need to look at the new iPhones in person to make sure your old case fits. But by the looks of the product photos, the cameras and side buttons haven’t moved, so your case alignment should be fine. The dimensions of the new iPhones have changed, however, which will determine if you can still use your case.

Apple's iPad Pro is pretty much what you'd expect: an iPad Air grabbed by the corners and stretched.

The new tablet uses the same basic design cues as the iPad Mini and iPad Air before it—chamfered metal edge, thin but not exceptionally narrow bezels, volume buttons with no mute switch, Home button with TouchID. Everything is just expanded.

The 12.9-inch 2732×2048 display is the tablet's raison d'etre, and iOS does a few things to adapt to such a large screen (the Pros...

On Apple’s public specs page, it says that the new Apple TV includes an A8 chip and that’s about it in terms of the bundled SoC. However, Apple’s developer documentation goes into more detail specifically listing the hardware as having 2 GB RAM (via Steve Troughton-Smith). This means the internals are actually better than the A8 in the iPhone 6 and latest-generation iPod touch, which only have 1 GB of RAM.

These are the specs Apple lists in the developer documentation:

What Apple didn’t announce at Wednesday's event

The rumors and conjecture flow freely through the Internet before an Apple event, so much so that it’s easy to unconsciously raise your expectations of what to expect when the Apple event finally does happen. Wednesday’s event was filled with lots of new Apple products, but invariably, someone will ask, “What about…?” So, here’s a list of the products Apple didn’t mention and why they were absent.

iPhone 6c

The thought was that an iPhone 6c—essentially an updated version of the colorful, plastic iPhone 5c—would fill the role of the most affordable, smallest iPhone model. And when Apple released a new iPod touch in July, it seemed like an iPhone 6c was feasible.

Apple Brings Innovation Back to Television with All-...

Apple has announced the all-new Apple TV, bringing a revolutionary experience to the living room based on apps built for the television. Apps on Apple TV let you choose what to watch and when you watch it. And with the new Siri Remote, you can search with your voice for TV shows and movies across multiple content providers simultaneously. Apple TV runs the all-new tvOS operating system, based on Apple’s iOS, enabling iOS developers to create new apps and games specifically for Apple TV and deliver them directly to users through the new Apple TV App Store. “There has been so much innovation in entertainment and programming through iOS apps, we want to bring that same excitement to the television,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “Apps make the TV experience even more compelling for viewers and we think apps represent the future of TV.”

Apple has introduced the all-new iPad Pro, featuring a 12.9-inch Retina display with 5.6 million pixels and the new 64-bit A9X chip. The new larger iPad Pro is thin and light and provides all-day battery life.

Its beautiful and large 12.9-inch Retina display has 5.6 million pixels and provides an immersive experience for content and apps. The iPad Pro is far and away the fastest iOS device we have ever made — its A9X chip beats most portable PCs in both CPU and graphics tasks, but is thin and light enough to hold all day,” said Apple’s Philip Schiller. “The innovative Apple Pencil and new Smart Keyboard enable users to customize their iPad Pro experience to the particular apps they use and the work they do, making iPad Pro ideal for everything from professional productivity to advanced 3D design.”

Moshi reveals premium cases for iPhone 6s and iPhone...

Moshi has revealed three new premium cases for the just-announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. As you'd expect from the company, all three are beautiful and feature-packed!

The iGlaze Ion (above, $100) is a battery case for the iPhone 6s featuring a two-piece design. As battery cases go, it's quite unique -- most of the time your iPhone 6s is encased in a nice slim case, but when you need power, it slides into the battery pack for extra juice on the go. It's available in two finishes: steel black (seen here) and brushed titanium.

The iGlaze Luxe (above, $50 for iPhone 6s, $55 for iPhone 6s Plus) uses a sleek metal frame milled from aircraft-grade aluminum. It provides the level of protection you'll want on your new iPhone, without the bulk and weight of a traditional case. Available in orange, rose pink, satin gold and titanium finishes, this is a beautiful line...
