Your iPhone is now encrypted. The FBI says it’ll...

The Guardian:

The US government and police officials are in the midst of a misleading PR offensive to try to scare Americans into believing encrypted cellphones are somehow a bad thing, rather than a huge victory for everyone’s privacy and security in a post-Snowden era.

I understand the government’s position but, with all the evidence of the authorities spying on us in any number of ways, they have no one to blame but themselves for average citizens looking for ways to protect themselves from their

Review: Kenu Airframe+ car mount for iPhone 6 Plus


One of the problems the new iPhone 6 models present is where to put it when you’re in the car. You may not want to keep it in your pocket for obvious reasons, especially the iPhone 6 Plus, and the new models are larger and slipperier than ever. Keeping it in the seat next to you probably means it’ll end up on the floor. With the larger displays and new features introduced with iOS 8, using a car mount is more useful than ever.

Per The Unofficial Apple Weblog and BankInnovation, PayPal was conspicuously absent from Apple’s list of secured partnerships when Apple Pay was announced in September. Now comes word that PayPal was initially part of Apple’s vision of Apple Pay, but that negotiations fell apart due to Pay Pal’s relationship with Samsung.

Apple and PayPal started talking early on in Apple’s development of Apple Pay, as Apple was setting up partnerships with the card issuing banks and card networks. Since PayPal’s a payments industry leader, it would have been shortsighted...

All gold everything: Apple may add new hue to iPad...

You glance at the time on the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition strapped to your wrist while chatting on your gold iPhone 6 and answering e-mails on your gold iPad. No, you don’t have the Midas touch. Apple is reportedly adding gold to its iPad Air lineup for easier color coordination.

High demand for the gold iPhone 5s when it launched last fall proved there’s a market for Apple devices in shades other than space gray and silver. According to Bloomberg, Apple is adding a gold iPad Air to its lineup this year. The mini is reportedly being left out of the metallic makeover.

iPhone 6 “Bendgate” scandal leads to copycat efforts

Never underestimate the power of stupidity in the face of an Internet trend.

Per Daily Dot, two 15-year-old UK residents going by the names of “Kylie” and “Danny” recorded footage of themselves entering an iPhone 6 Plus and bending at least one iPhone 6 Plus handset, using the display table as leverage.

Since the iPhone 6 was released two weeks ago, it’s been plagued by claims that it’s easy to accidentally bend, something multiple people have already put to the test in videos. But not like this.

The two uploaded the following video, which was later removed, then reposted via a mirror.

Without a contract, the iPhone 6 Plus retails at US$649.

The pair later offered the following apology video, wherein at least one of the teens seems to take responsibility regarding the incident.

Please be advised that the apology is less than family friendly/...

Apple is now allowing people to participate in its iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program even if they've had their phone's display fixed using third-party components, according to a notice on the company's private website for service providers. The company's previous position was that it wouldn't replace batteries in phones that may have seen damage, and as such it required broken displays to be fixed first. If someone fixed a display on their own, though, Apple would deny them a new battery....

Specifically, the “Kids” category under the App Store’s Top Charts section is currently displaying apps that should go in the main “All Categories” section. That means that the All Kids, Kids 5 & Under, Kids 6-8, and Kids 9-11 categories are currently displaying many apps that are inappropriate for kids (pictured above).

The iPhone 5c is often criticised in light of its beefy powerful cousins, acting as a bit of a laughing stock for the technology industry. However, it is often reported as one of the top phones by sales volume in many countries (usually beating out Samsung’s offerings).

In fact, for August the iPhone 5c was the best selling smartphone in the UK, even outselling the iPhone 5s, according to Kantar World Panel.

The iPhone 5c was the best selling phone in Britain in August with 8.9% share, outselling the flagship iPhone 5s with 7.6% and the Samsung Galaxy S5 with 6.0%.

The company is also adding background sleep and activity tracking to its smartwatches. Its new marketing campaign pokes fun at Apple’s SVP of Design, Jony Ive, saying “Breath, Jony.

OS X Yosemite hits Golden Master, almost ready for...

OS X Yosemite is almost ready.

Per Macworld, Apple on Tuesday released the golden master candidate of its forthcoming Mac OS to members of its AppleSeed developer program.

The GM version of an OS is typically the final product, though the developers who’ve been beta testing Yosemite since June still have time to find a few more bugs. Apple also opened up the Yosemite beta to the public for the first time in 14 years, so a lucky million Mac users got the chance to take Yosemite for a test run.

Apple revealed Yosemite, OS 10.10, at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference nearly four months ago. Six developer previews and four public beta builds have been released since then.

While Yosemite has plenty of new...

Apple broke off talks with PayPal because of Galaxy...

Apple and PayPal were indeed in talks regarding Apple Pay, but those were cancelled after Samsung signed a deal to let people make PayPal transactions using the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S5, sources say. The people suggest that Apple was so upset that it not only backed out of talks but chose to exclude PayPal as an acceptable platform in developer documentation. Blame has been laid on eBay CEO John Donahoe, who went ahead with the Samsung deal despite opposition from former PayPal president David Marcus, who reportedly believed it might cause problems with Apple....

In the face of new competition from Apple, smartwatch maker Pebble has released an update to the device’s firmware that enables all-new activity tracking features for health applications. To accompany this update, new Pebble apps from Jawbone and others that integrate with the health and fitness tracking features.

The app by Misfit will be capable of monitoring sleep and movement using the watch’s built-in sensors, while Jawbone’s “UP” watchface will be able to track similar data and sync back to the Jawbone UP service via a smartphone connection. Perhaps the most interesting application of these new features is the Swim.com application, which can “measure...

However, Tech21 boasts "impactology," stating that its "D30 impact material" absorbs and dissipates shock away from the phone when dropped. For what it's worth, the device does have slightly thicker side coverage than many similar cases. The Classic Shell we received is gray and translucent, with a slightly reddish-orange…

The glass Apple Store cube at the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue isn’t just a New York City landmark — it’s as iconic as any product Apple has released, if not more so. But what you may not know is that the actual store, underground, was an unused basement for 40 years. New York Magazine tells the story of how Steve Jobs and real estate developer Harry Macklowe worked together to turn an unwanted basement into one of retail’s greatest success stories.

External Link: Debunking the Bendable iPhone 6

Much has been made of claims that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are prone to bending in people’s pockets. Consumer Reports, which drew attention to antenna issues in the iPhone 4, put both phones to a “three-point flexural test,” the same test that Apple uses. While Apple reportedly only tests with 55 pounds of force, Consumer Reports found that the iPhone 6 didn’t deform until it reached 70 pounds of force, and the iPhone 6 Plus held up even better, deforming at 90 pounds of force. While the iPhone 5 is much tougher, deforming at 130 pounds, the iPhone 6 still exceeds even Apple’s own standards.
