Apple's new app icons sure are something, aren't they? Each one is so delightful and cheery and vibrant. Who knew shading would look so much better than drop shadows! But wait! I think I've seen some of these before.
Today's keynote marked day one of Apple's giant developer love fest, and while we pretty much knew what was coming, Tim Cook and co. still managed to toss a few surprises at their legion of loyal followers. So in case you didn't happen to spend the afternoon glued to your screen, these are the best and brightest…
As expected and widely reported ahead of today's keynote, Apple introduced a completely revamped iOS at WWDC. Not only did they ditch the skeuomorphic design scheme in favor of something a little more colorful and fun, the company added a handful of neat new features—some old, some new. But as with any major update…
Miss the WWDC keynote? Just want to watch it again in its entirety because there is something wrong with you? Either way, you can catch the whole sucker right here. One catch: you gotta use Safari.
We didn't get a new verision of Android at Google I/O, but it's not like there weren't enough already. As Apple pushes on into the beautiful iOS 7 future and brings the lion's share of its user-base along, there's still a lot of Android users stuck in a multiple OS-ghettos.
After boundless speculation over the last year, Apple has finally announced its online streaming and music discovery service. This is how millions of people will listen to music from now on.
Sharing is getting just a little bit easier in iOS 7 with the addition of AirDrop. Just like in the latest versions of Mac OS X, you'll be able to share photos, contacts, notes and the like over a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi network or over Bluetooth. So any item that works with iOS's share function, can be sent to others…
Just like its OS X big brother, Safari for iOS just got a major overhaul for its new, flat home—an overhaul that suspiciously looks quite a bit like Chrome.
If there's just one thing we've been begging Apple to steal from Android, it's been some kind of comprehensive settings page. Enter Control Center, a suite of settings just a swipe away.
iOS 7 is here. It's beautiful. You can cehck out all the details in our main post, but here is some video to see how it looks in action. You really want to see this.
The new iOS 7 is here. Jony Ive's first iOS—minimalist, elegant, devoid of the infantile artifice that infected its recent incarnations. It's pretty impressive. And here's everything you need to know about it.
While all the hullabaloo at WWDC is focused on what iOS and OSX look like, we should be more concerned with whether or not they actually work. The late Steve Jobs did say over a decade ago that Apple focuses on not just the aesthetics of its products but also how they actually work: "It's not just what it looks like…
Apple updates Safari every year, but now with the help of Intel's Haswell processor, they might actually have made something that people will actually want to use. Running at about a third the energy usage of Firefox, way less memory, and 1.44 times faster than Chrome, this might just do it.
Apple's OS X 10.9 Mavericks looks nice and shiny and new, in all the ways that new operating systems usually do. But it's got one big fix for what had been the single stupidest thing in all of OS X for the past two years. That's multiple displays.
While iOS 7 was expected to be the star of Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) this year, it wasn't the only operating system getting a significant update. Supposedly codenamed "Cabernet" at headquarters, OS X Mavericks was unveiled on Monday with little fanfare. The specific improvements, however, are…
Welcome friends! In less than an hour, Apple's going to take the wrapping off of the all-new, Jony Ive-powered iOS 7, and we'll be covering it all live, right here. What else are we expecting out of WWDC 2013? New MacBooks, OS X improvements, better iCloud, and maybe even a surprise or two.
Apple's new WWDC app, meant to guide developers through next week's mega-conference, is up in the App Store today. If you look closely, you can see bits of iOS 7 in it. While it's exceedingly easy to overvalue just how much this app means—Apple surely doesn't want to tip its hand before the event—there are still some…
iOS 7 has a lot of catching up to do. In a relatively short time, Apple's once unimpeachable mobile platform has fallen behind Android and even Windows Phone in some key areas. iOS is still rock solid, for the most part, but it needs to take some cues from the competition. And the very first thing on that list, beyond
