Almost exactly two years ago today I let out a squeal of joy during an Apple event. There was an iPhone onstage made by Apple. But it wasn’t black or white. It was coated in a colorful, hard candy shell. More than that: It was PINK.
The vast oceans of Apple news have been drowning you for 24 hours now. It’s overwhelming, we know. The phones, the tablets, the headaches. For a quick rundown in one big gulp, all you need to do is watch our 90 second video.
I’ve been pondering Apple’s addition of 4K video recording on the new iPhone 6s and 6s plus. My feeling is simple, and applies to many facets of any new Apple product. Please, oh please. Do not let yourself be roofied by Apple ads and marketing-speak that will attempt to sell 4K as magical rainbow juice from above. Do…
Apple wasn’t able to invite us to its homecoming dance in San Francisco this year, but we admired its dance moves from afar. We also tuned into the after party gossip when attendees told everyone how they really felt about the latest products. The new Apple TV, apparently, is pretty good.
Is it a laptop or a tablet? Apple’s newly announced iPad Pro seems to bring a bit of both. It’s got a fabric keyboard and glorified stylus (both sold separately), and a whopping 12.9 inch screen. It will run you at least $800—on par with some computers. Can it replace your laptop? Here’s what the internet has to say.
Please never buy a phone on specs alone. In the grand scheme of things, most don’t matter. But if you’re looking to see how well Apple’s playing the specs game with its two new iPhones, you’ve come to the right place.
Of the many new experiences you might have during a high-risk pregnancy, one of the least fun is a fetal monitoring test called a Non-Stress Test, or NST. It really should be called a High-Stress Test because of the anguish it puts parents through. Apple just made it a little bit better.
When the iPhone 6S goes on sale, the cheapest model you can buy will be 16 gigabytes. Does it mean you should buy it? Hell no! Apple shouldn’t even sell it.
The iPhone 6 Plus changed the way people used the world’s finest smartphone. Now, Apple is making the jumbo phone even better with a faster processor, newfangled 3D Touch capabilities, and a revamped camera. This is the iPhone 6S Plus, and it looks predictably terrific.
Here we are: Apple just announced the ninth version of the iPhone, the thing that every ad will be compelling you to buy for the next year. It’s the same 4.7-inch aluminum sliver that makes up the 6, but with a way better camera, and some touchy-feely tricks.
Just when you thought the Apple TV was just another set-top box, everything has changed. The Cupertino company just announced the biggest Apple TV upgrade in recent memory, one that transforms the little box into a whole new platform for your home.
This afternoon we met the iPad Pro, a giant iPad that’s aimed at professionals. With it comes the Apple Pencil: A stylus that Phil Schiller called “one of the most advanced technologies we’ve ever created.”
We knew that the iPad Pro was on the way to help Apple contend with super tablets like the Microsoft Surface. We just didn’t know exactly how far the Cupertino company would go to make it’s big new tablet look more like a laptop. Apple went pretty far.
Apple kicked off its iPhone event by diving straight into the Apple Watch. Although they didn’t have much to say aside from what was already revealed at WWDC in June, we will be getting some new colors options and, more importantly, a firm date for the Watch OS 2 update—September 16.
It’s time folks, the splendid iPad Air is getting an older beefier sibling. It’s everything you loved about the iPads of yore, just bigger and badder. Meet the iPad Pro.
Just like you, we weren’t invited to the Apple Day frenzy at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. So we’ve got a completely candid liveblog of the keynote, bringing you Apple without the Kool Aid.
