iOS 8 Golden Master released to devs

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…

iPhone 6 leak shows off front panel complete with display/digitizer

iPhone season is almost upon us, which means one thing: Leaks are going to ramp up. But what I love about iPhone leaks in late summer is that they tend to give us a better look at the device. We don’t just see random parts, separate from one another. Products are in the process of being assembled, and so we begin seeing more complete sections of the…

Wally Stick-On – The iPhone wallet case for minimalists [Review]

There’s one distinct area of iPhone accessories where no company has seemingly got it 100% right: Wallet Cases. It’s a niche in the market that not everyone cares about, but in my case (pun not intended), it’s almost an obsession. I’m constantly on the search for any means to reduce the amount of clutter I carry around with me. Or at least, a minimal…

iPhone 6 event to take place on September 9?

According to the ever-reliable John Paczkowski at Re/code, Apple’s next big media event is scheduled for September 9th. Given the past trend of iPhone launches, it’s safe to assume this will be the event in which Apple will introduce the iPhone 6 (or whatever it ends up being called). “Apple has scheduled a big media event for Tuesday, Sept. 9 — a…

US Apple Stores now replacing iPhone 5s screens on-site

Apple has now started rolling out an iPhone 5s screen replacement service in some of its stores in the U.S. The aim here, of course, is to offer a cheaper alternative to customers with damaged screens who previously would have needed to pay to replace the phone or have sent it out to Apple’s servicing and replacement center. A process which could take a…
