We have seen plenty of iPhone 6 leaks over the last few weeks, ranging from covers and cases and components for the upcoming smartphone. What we have not seen yet is a full bodied iPhone 6, at least not one that looks like it could be the real deal. That has changed today as an image has leaked online showing what seems to be an iPhone 6 in all of its glory, completed and as a whole. Read More »

Taking Wall Street's word on all things Apple would have iOS enthusiasts sitting in a dark room shaking slowly. According to analysts on the stock exchange, Apple is riding a very thin line and will collapse at any time because of a lack of new innovation. Without that killer product that defined the company in the 21st century Apple will lose its core appeal, that of a company that makes and defines trends and not follows them. Read More »

At some point, you have to check all the boxes check by your rivals. Windows 8 tablets have split screens in some capacity, and so do Samsung's Galaxy Tab series. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before Apple embraced the idea and built iOS 8 to have it's own 2-for-1 screen. The difference is Apple's still very much in beta and working to turn that work-in-progress into a finished product.
Users of the iOS 8 developer edition have discovered that there exists code in Springboard that references two apps running side-by-side. The codes also show the ability to adjust the amount of space each window takes up, enabling a 50-50 split or 75-25 share. It will be a big boost to multitasking and a worthwhile solution for people who want to accomplish tasks or discover information without having to jump back and forth between windows. As someone who loves Multi-Window on the Galaxy Tab but also uses an iPad Mini, I'd be very happy not to have to give up one of the best tablet features when switching from one platform to the other.
According to sources from a few connected bloggers, Apple removed multitasking from the beta because it was too buggy. That's a recurring theme in recent days, but one that doesn't make us any less enthused about the prospect of getting split screens. We may have that wish granted come September.

The iPhone is a very different handset when compared to any other. When a flagship is nearing launch, for three or four months before the expectation ramps up and reports and leaks start flooding in regarding that device. However, while it is fitting to say "let the games begin" with another smartphone, for the iPhone the games never stop; speculation surrounding the next iPhone starts as soon as the newest on is launched.

Apple's Safari browser has picked up a new trick in the latest version of iOS 8 that can save users from having to manually key in their credit card information. When making a payment online, say for Amazon or NewEgg, the browser can take a picture of the credit card and then automatically enter the numbers into the corresponding fields. Read More »

The problem with analysts is that they are paid to watch markets and make assumptions based on small tidbits of information. The results can either be very correct or woefully wrong, so taking their word for it is a little easier said than done. Take Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White for example; the man who first revealed the iPad Mini and iPhone 5c were in the works cannot be dismissed. Read More »

Mobile has come a long way and is at a level that we were used to on consoles from the 6th generation, but with the smartphone and tablet boom came a fundamental problem. Almost all smartphones, especially the flagship game crushing ones, are touch screens and are not ideal for true game controls. Read More »
