After a year and a half, the iPhone 5 turned out to be the iPhone 4S, which left a lot of us wondering what that meant for Apple's release schedule. (Up until then, the company was reliably releasing iPhones every year.) Well, we could be getting back to it: a Foxconn recruiting officer is hinting at a June release for the iPhone 5.
Should children, or in this case, a baby, have access to such advanced technology? I think it's pretty darn cute, but maybe this little one should be playing with blocks instead of an iPad? Weigh in below.
Two years ago when Apple released the iPhone 4, the smartphone was found to have a fatal reception flaw: Antennagate. For a limited time following the iPhone 4 launch, Apple offered buyers a free iPhone bumper or case. If you didn't claim yours, you're entitled to some free cash.
Much has been made of the role of Apple in supervising the factory practices of China's Foxconn, the manufacturer of all those beloved iPhones and iPads. This week, the new most important person at Apple, CEO Tim Cook, decided to pay his gold mine a visit.
Are you ready for iPhone rumors? Reuters is the first one out of the gate on sixth-generation iPhone rumors and its reporting that a Korean business newspaper says Apple's going to up the screen size on its beloved smartphone.
Maiden, North Carolina is home to Apple's new $1 billion data center. Across the street from this massive 500,000-square-foot building is land for a 20 megawatt array of solar panels. Check out the video below to see it all from the air.
Okay, we're officially not going crazy. We and many new iPad owners found that the tablet can warm up, especially when running GPU-intensive apps, but now the watchdogs at Consumer Reports have declared the iPad's newest feature is indeed a built-in hand warmer.
Almost everything that can be said about the new third-generation iPad has already been said. Its 2048x1536 resolution Retina Display is crisp — and more advanced than even the largest and sharpest HDTVs. The 4G LTE is so fast that it's sometimes even speedier than Wi-Fi. Retina-ready apps look unbelievable — even better than printed paper — and the rear camera finally produces pictures that aren't horrible. It's for all of those reasons that I (and the millions of people who waited in line outside Apple Stores) love the new iPad. I'm coming up from a first-gen iPad, myself. But I've been using the third-gen iPad for four straight days and "resolutionary" (Apple's copy, not mine) as the tablet is, there's always room for improvement and here we present the areas where the new iPad can still grow. If you want to read a more positive take on the new iPad, you can check out Stewart's take on it from last Friday. Otherwise, get ready for some criticism on Apple's latest.
Have you seen the lines at the box office? It's an avalanche! It's a torrent! It's the biggest hit on Broadway! Wait, that was "Springtime for Hitler." I meant to describe the third annual avalanche and torrent at Apple stores — and Verizon, AT&T, Wal-Mart, Best Buy and other retailers — that started selling the new iPad 3 this morning. (Yeah, I know — "iPad 3" verboten. Tough nuggies, that's what it is and that's what I'm calling it.) The question is, should you join the avalanche, stick with your current iPad or — heavens forbid! — remain tablet-less? Not surprisingly, I have some thoughts on these various usage case scenarios upon actually handling and seeing the iPad 3.
Start saving your dollars. We already told you that Apple was working on a larger 15-inch MacBook Air and now a "premium Mac accessory maker" has informed tech blog ElectricPig that 15-inch Air's are coming in April. Whoo boy!
