Apple Announced the 12.9" iPad
Yes, you've read this correctly. Apple is releasing a new range of iPads that are absolutely massive. 13" is about the same size as most Macbook Pros on the market and the size of the Macbook Air screen. The new iPad will have a 12.9" Diagonally measured screen which may feature the soon to be released Apple sapphire glass. This may be a move by Apple to refresh the iPad market after it has gone south in terms of numbers over the last two quarters. That's not to say that Apple is losing money on their iPads but sales are in fact worse than they have been before. We've hear rumors too that the upcoming iPad will feature a fingerprint reader on the home sensor and an super thin chassis like the iPad air (but ...
According to a brand new report from Taiwan's Economic Daily News, Apple's third-generation iPad mini is going to be an "Air"-like model, having a design that shaves 30 % from the thickness from the device. This slimness together with a effective new A8 processor is going to be one of the primary selling points for the following generation iPad small, claims the Asian sources (via GforGames).This will make it the thinnest Apple device available on the market to date, but many skeptics say that such a feat in size reduction remians to be seen.
Sources of the rumor themselves maintain that a 30 percent thinner iPad mini seems to be an overly optimistic one. The original iPad mini in fact measured 7.2 mm thick, and the device saw a slight increase to 7.5 mm as they upgraded to Apple's flasgship ...
Do you ever find your iPad in a frozen-like state where none of the buttons or responses seem to work? This is actually a common occurrence for many iDevice products including iPhone and iPads (especially after the iOS 7 updates).
So what do you do if your iPad is stuck on that black screen? The first thing you can try is holding in your Power button on the top of your iPad and the Home button, which is the circle button on the face of your iPad. Hold these buttons in at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until you notice the screen come on with the Apple logo. This is a quick and easy way to reset your device and it is a method we use all the time at our store to make sure we're not fixing a ...
The Chinese government recently expressed concerns about iOS' Frequent Locations feature, calling the software a threat to national security. The feature tracks and logs a users' most frequently visited places; it could be a friend's house, the movie theater, your home or your job; and iOS will use an amalgamation of GPS, Wi-Fi, and cell tower triangulation to check the coordinates of these frequently visited locations.
So what's China's government's gripe against Apple? Well, China believes that the data that's logged on iOS devices could be used to leak "state secrets", and also log information about the nation's economy. China avers that if this were to happen, that Apple would be held responsible if another country or entity other than the Chinese Government were to get their hands on the data.
How did Apple respond? The Cupertino tech-giant said that Frequent Locations was meant for ...
FCC filings discovered by electronics company Securifi (via TUAW) have revealed Apple's plans for first-party iBeacon hardware to go along with the microlocation technology found in iOS. The transmitter is registered as the "Apple iBeacon" and carries a model number of A1573, which is in line with the company's other products. This is a game changer in a lot of ways because while Apple already uses triangulation technology between satellites, wifi internet, and cellular towers, this new device may even be viable when the phone is off or under intense atmospheric conditions.
According to the documents filed by Apple, the iBeacon was tested in collaboration with China-based Audix Technology from April 30 to May 13, 2014. The beacon tested has a diameter of 5.46'' and has a highest working frequency of 2.4GHz, which is in line with modern Bluetooth standards.

How tough is the iPhone 6 sapphire display? See for yourself:
Turns out that Apple's purchase of sapphire crystal factories weren't in vain, because the iPhone 6's display is very, very durable.
Or so it seems in a recently posted video that displays the 4.7" panel being put through scratch tests.
The torturer in the video takes a knife and a pair of keys to the display, scraping and scratching, trying to make a nick or mark on the display unit, but it remains unscathed. The flexibility and durability of the display unit is also put to the test when the torturer bends the unit and it doesn't creak or shatter.
This is definitely good news for Apple; one of the biggest issues with previous iterations of the iPhone was the device's susceptibility to cracks and breaks. If the Cupertino-based tech giant can market its newfound ...

Apple continues to be the number one handset manufacturer among consumers in the United States and has also made small gains in operating system share, according to ComScore's newest monthly survey of U.S. mobile phone users covering the February-May 2014 period. Apple's smartphone market share increased from 41.3 percent in February to 41.9 percent in May, allowing Apple to retain its position as the top handset manufacturer. Samsung also made small gains over the period, rising to 27.8 percent share. LG, Motorola, and HTC's share fell slightly. While Apple is the top handset maker, iOS has always fallen behind Android when it comes to operating system share, given the large number of Android-based phones on the market. Apple did make small gains during the period, however, rising to a new all time high of 41.9 percent, up from 41.3 percent in February. Android, in comparison, ...
