Tim Cook interviewed by Charlie Rose, let the Apple TV set rumors begin… Again

If there’s one rumor surrounding Apple that never comes to fruition, it’s the TV set speculation. Or at least, it hasn’t yet. Whenever chiefs from Apple have entertain questions on the possibility of a new Apple-branded TV, there’s one common response: “We’re interested”. But that’s it. No further details. Tech enthusiasts went crazy when Steve Jobs’…

iPhone 6, 6 Plus pre-orders sell in record numbers

    Early this morning, Apple opened up pre-orders for the next generation iPhones. And despite issues getting it off the ground, reports suggest this could be Apple’s biggest ever pre-order weekend. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus pre-orders have sold in record numbers. In a statement to Re/code, Apple claimed “Response to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6…

SwiftKey for iOS 8 officially announced

Although Apple very much focussed on new hardware last night at its Special Event, the company is about to launch a new version of iOS too. And perhaps one of the most exciting parts of the update is the ability to install custom third-party keyboards. Something our Android touting friends have been able to do for years. SwiftKey, the company…

iPhone 6, 6 plus, Apple Watch or Apple Pay – Which was today’s biggest announcement? [POLL]

Tim Cook, Phil Schiller and Kevin Lynch (plus U2) all got up on stage at the Flint Center this afternoon to announce a whole new selection of Apple products. For the first time since the iPad in 2010, Apple entered a new category: Watches. Interestingly enough, the Apple Watch (note: not iWatch) was never referred to as a ‘smart watch’ which tells you…

If you’re a developer, or a curious user registered on someone else’s Dev Account, you’ll be pleased to know that the final version of iOS 8 beta has been released. Dubbed the Golden Master, it’s essentially the same software we’re going to see go public next week when the iPhone 6 lands on the market. At time of typing, it’s not available as an…

QiStone+ – The first truly wireless power bank [Review]

A few months back I checked out a Qi-compatible adapter for iPhone. The iQi is a gloriously “hacky” way to make your iPhone 5/5s/5c able to charge wirelessly on a whole range of Qi chargers. But the company’s latest product is perhaps even cooler than that. The QiStone+ is the first portable powerbank that can claim to be completely wireless….

Hands on with some iPhone 6 cases [gallery]

  Thanks to our friends over at iLoveApple we’ve been able to get our hands on some simple examples of iPhone 6 cases. Although we’ve seen them elsewhere, we had to get our hands on them to see the difference in size between these and the iPhone 5s. And it is very noticeable. If genuine, this size-jump will be the biggest we’ve ever seen in the…

SurfacePad for iPad Air – The Smart Case Apple should have made [Review]

In an accessories market where every manufacturer is desperately churning out all kinds of plastic covers and shells for every popular device on the market in a frantic attempt to grab that tiny bit more market share, it’s refreshing to still have a company that focusses only on one. A company that cares about attention to detail, and approaches the…
